Canada's fanciest fanny!

Uncategorized

Helllllo my peeps!

Hello to all my loyal peeps who have been patiently waiting for me to share some more dancing adventures with them! I’ve been all over the map…once again and have had been caught up in a whirlwind that took my career to even greater heights over the last year. Have met a lot of amazing and interesting people along the way and have had many more reasons to love my job. So, I have been journaling my stories and will post them every few days. Happy to be back up and sharing! Hoping to get the vlogs up at some point but one step at a time ūüėÄ Other big titles I’ve added to my library lol are MISS NUDE UNITED STATES 2015 (yes, this Canadian gal went down to the United States and won their title!! I will most definitely be an excellent ambassador of the crown, proudly representing the Can-Am connection. I was also awarded¬†the CANADIAN ULTIMATE FEATURE ENTERTAINER AWARD for 2015!! This for me, is the highest and most prestigious achievement award that there is.¬†

Being recognized for building such an amazing and successful career had me feeling overwhelmed with deep appreciation and am still elated :) Being a feature performer is so much more than putting on a fancy costume and dancing around on stage and to have been validated with the contribution I have made within this industry is outstanding.

Prepping for 2 Big Comps XD

Blogs are a little behind do to no internet connection for 6 weeks! Blah! Gonna have to wait till I’m in writing mode to jot down some stories and THAT I have from my last tour. I’m currently 2 days out to my next fitness competition, some of you have seen me start to lean out and eating chicken breasts I carry around with me lol but am feeling AMAZING! The carb depletion process was a breeze, easily maintained my energy and physique is definitely my best package yet! It’s been a joyful journey this time and have really in-joyed the process. It’s a different organization I’m competing with so it’s exciting.

Also prepping for Miss Nude Canada in a few weeks and THAT also has been SO much fun, designing and creating my shows! ūüėÄ Putting my best breasts forward! lol Doing contests is an opportunity to excel and expand your shows and create the ultimate performance. Had a blast working with all of the wonderful people I’ve been connected with and have had SO much fun all along the way and excited to see my vision unfold on stage. Even have my hot sister coming down to help me with the show…she may even get on stage¬†ūüėÄ And really excited cuz it’s in Calgary during the Calgary Stampede….save a horse ūüėČ Gonna break out my cowgirl hat for this one! I haven’t worked in Calgary so am looking forward to something fresh.

Have two new shows added to the collection… XD

It’s not the steps that matter but the path. And the path will take care of itself when you keep focused on your destination :)


‘O CANADA!’

SO good to be home! I love my travels and experiencing different cultures and countries but there really is no place like home or my home audiences and tonight was such a pleasant reminder. I’m at the Red Lion in Victoria and had yet again another good week that just keeps getting better! When I have an audience like I did just now for my last show it’s SO exhilarating that I have to slowly wind myself back down so I can eventually go to sleep. There’s a moment during a show when I’m completely connected with the audience, I call it the sweet spot, and THAT is why I love what I do, for that moment. It’s the most amazing feeling in the world :)

I had a nice treat today, a few customers had to leave before my show, so they each gave their friends who were staying tipping dollars to give to me. Also had half the front row full¬†of Americans who stayed through the hockey game to wait until I was back on again; they wanted to leave cuz they didn’t want to watch hockey…WTH I told them not to say that too loud. Didn’t you guys see what happened in Vancouver last year when we didn’t win the cup? Those are like fighting words in this neck of the woods. LOL But I completely appreciated that! Happy they enjoyed my performance. And of course, my fave ladies came out in full force tonight. The one DJ called me a chick magnet….ummmm, YEP! ūüėÄ Love all that feminine energy, sexiness and support.

I had the BEST time in Australia. I stayed in a couple of hostels along the way…that was interesting. I actually didn’t mind the whole ‘backpacker’ experience, it was actually a great way to meet people along the way and the girls I roomed with were all very nice. I did my best to conceal all the sparkles and sequence in my luggage in the effort to keep the fact that I am bit of a sensual starlet and a provocative one at that, to a minimum. I¬†love what I do but there are moments where I prefer to be more discreet with my profession. It usually sparks an endless conversation consisting of mostly questions and sometimes I rather not spend all my time talking about work; sometimes.¬†I do like to learn about other people, too ūüėõ It’s just a juicy topic and I appreciate people’s inquisitiveness.

In Australia I did the flying trapeze which was insane!! I conquered my fear of heights from a ledge, well, for that moment. lol I actually didn’t think I was going to be able to do it. I even told the guy when I got up there I couldn’t do it but he kept talking me through it. I finally let go of the platform, placed both hands on the trapeze bar and away I went!. Even did a back-flip my first time! It was incredible! I then went up another 6 times and got to the point where I could ‘make the catch’ from another guy on a trapeze who’d catch me and then dismount with somersaults or back-flips. I knew it-I should’ve joined the circus! LOL This is only after I also started learning ariel hoop from my amazing instructor, Sylvia Louise aka AcroSilver, and after 3 classes was able to perform a 2 minute routine. Ariel hoop comes a lot easier to me than pole work. It’s crazy! And not just ‘looking pretty’ poses but some challenging moves and I just breezed through it.

I got to hang with my besties, Candi, Justine and both of their hubbies and it really made my trip worth while. Those Aussies are so hospitable, at one point a friend of a friend acted as a tour guide and totally took care of Candi and I while we were in Melbourne. Chivalry isn’t dead! He showed us the sights and was a true gentlemen. But then again, he’s was hanging out with two hotties ūüėČ I kept laughing, Candi has new boobs and kept playing with them, unintentionally,¬†and he would try SO hard not to look but come on…lol ‘A for effort!’ The guy at the trapeze school even asked us why we were in such good shape and what did we do. Hmm, what do you mean? Don’t you have a lot of ladies with big boobs and trim bods learn trapeze? Bahaha

As far as New Zealand goes, that’s a whole other blog with a potential litigation in suit, so no comments at this time but will definitely will keep you all updated on the unravelling of that situation….One thing that I thought was awesome was the customers that were coming in to see me would start singing, ‘O Canada’ every time I walked in the room. I thought that was hilarious. But as far as other issues, I’m not at liberty to discuss them at this time :/

On a positive note, I’m getting ready for a few big competitions! My On Season has begun and am 10 weeks out to my next comp! Dun dun dun daaaa! SO excited! ūüėÄ And there could be another reason to sing ‘O Canada’ ūüėČ

 


All Over the Map…And Even More Craziness Added To That!

From Quebec City to Hanover to T-Bay to Montreal and am now here settled in Winnipeg for at least a couple of weeks lol traveling wilbury is to say the least! And some adventures along the way, of course,¬†from freaking out on a Dj, (something I don’t do often, I always try to avoid conflict, keep a somewhat pleasant and easygoing work environment for the week¬†and work things out if an issue does arise BUT sometimes people don’t respond to the high road of communication and resolution, they need the feisty freak out to get the point!) to¬†learning what a ‘plus’ club was,¬†to a triple shooting, to getting thrown out of my motel, to almost being stuck in Montreal then a lil miracle happened, to landing in Winnipeg where I was on stage performing a show no less than 20 minutes after¬†arriving ¬†and then¬†11 shows¬†the following day, just to turn things up a notch. Pheeew! As I’m dabbing a little sweat dripping from my forehead lol I do see a vacation in my very near future…

Yep, got into a scuffle with a dj, for a brief moment the bitch switch was turned on high but then we worked things and all went well for the rest of the week. All over effin smoke. I don’t like their smoke machine, I feel sick directly after my shows that have had it. He kept blowing smoke on my shows, every one, even with me telling him before I’d walk on stage. It’s one thing to be kind and want to create an enjoyable work vibe for the week but at the same time you do need to stand up for yourself when someone’s crossing your¬†boundaries and just being blatantly disrespectful. He then would say, “It’s water based, it’s not even smoke, it’s a mist,” “How about I DON’T care if it’s coming out your butt, I don’t want it!” Why do I need to explain myself? Seriously….WELL, then I spoke with the owner after a show where he once again put the smoke on and the dj happened to walk up behind the owner and I just freaked out.

When he apologized later to me, which was a nice gesture, ¬†he said he’s never seen me get angry like that before….yes, and we both don’t want me to angry like that again or there’ll be some knuckle sandwiches given out! Dukes up, baby! JOKING Honestly, I don’t like wasting my energy on getting angry or creating an uncomfortable work atmosphere. I let things go and brush the small things off but I will¬†remember when it comes time to tip the dj at the end of the week.

Next drama..and These Are the Plays Of¬† My Life…or better yet, As My Stomach Turns.. ha ha ha¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† I was SO excited to go back to Montreal for the grand opening week of Studio 300 and¬†THEN there was a triple shooting! No, I wasn’t there, and no, it wasn’t some sort of scuzzy biker bar lol It actually was¬† quite beautiful, very modern and classy and the staff was amazing. It really was too bad that happened there. Though I have to admit,¬†it is the worst stage I’ve ever danced on-stainless steel and aluminum everything! Brutal! It was I was in Ice Capades!¬†But the show must go on.¬†Suck it up and make the best of what I’ve got. They wanted more of audience participation show (basically go out into the audience, interact with them, bring them on stage¬†and whip them LOL)¬†and I don’t mind having fun with the audience but I LOVE putting on my show, too, so it was a double edged sword that way.

It felt weird being in a full out¬†Viva¬†Las Vegas showgirl costume and going off stage to interact with the audience. Being flexible and adapting to new places goes¬†with this type of career if you want to take it to a global level where you’re performing around the world. Different things work for different cultures and audiences. I’ll¬†embrace a new environment and try to incorporate their style of doing things, if I like it and feel comfortable I’ll continue,¬†if not, I’ll move on. It’s that simple. I need to be the right fit for a place and they need to be the right fit for me.¬†As much fun as interacting with the customers is and I do enjoy making it a part of my show, I didn’t like it being the entire show. I am a showgirl at heart and do need the balance of performing. It was a little too much interaction¬†for me and not enough show but then again, that stage was a bit of a nightmare to perform on so what to do when you’ve got lemons……make lemonade! ūüėČ More like paintonade-did paint and water shows to my heart’s content.

The shootings of course were all over the news and many stations reported that it was gang related, locals that lived by the bar were in upset and wanted the bar gone, it was chaos. In most cases the bar would be closed down but they had a hope that maybe they’d recover and the police couldn’t revoke their liquor license¬†so the club went ahead and continued with the grand opening week. There was a heavy police presence to make people feel safe (yeah right, it didn’t help, if anything it kept people away! Not that anyone would want to come to a club that just erupted in gunfire anyway.)

“But this is normal for Montreal,” is what I was told-well, no thanks then. I didn’t end up finishing my week there, of all places I ended up in Winnipeg, which was such a blessing in disguise and a nice Christmas present to receive.¬†And to add to the chaos I¬†ended up being asked to leave my motel in Montreal cuz pets weren’t allowed and I had my lil pooch with me. At that point I knew I just needed to get the heck out of there; too many red lights. So I made a couple of phone calls and Winnipeg was eager to have me come finish off my week there. After dealing with the chaos it was a pleasure to come back to my familiar, enthusiastic audiences and have received more boxes of chocolates than I know what to do with! (a few¬†pounds later…lol But loving every decadent bite :D) My family is quite small and spread out from one side of Canada to the next, so I just work through the holidays and it was going to be quiet. It was¬†SO nice to be in a place where I have so many familiar faces in my audiences, the holiday spirit energized the city and peoples warmness and generosity was abundant, it made me feel at home :)

That’s one thing I always teach peeps: Be attached¬†to your¬†ideal outcome but not¬†to the process of gettin there cuz many times what appears as obstacles or blocks could be blessings guiding¬†you towards what u really want in a better way. Be open¬†to surprises or changes that detour ur road from A-B. On¬†your detour u may see many other vistas and could even change¬†your destination¬†to something greater that¬†you would’ve missed…happy I ended up here, afterall. Dealing with the drama¬†wasn’t what I wanted, what I wanted was to have a funfilled, prosperous week surrounded by joyful people to get me through the holidays, maybe even move out of my Grinchness a little…well, that’s the outcome I¬†ended up receiving¬†:) Wasn’t my ideal path to get me there but I guess it needed to be a big chaos to move me the heck out of Montreal pronto to where I was supposed to be and being in Winnipeg at this time was for my highest good and THAT’S what counts in the end.

ps A ‘plus’ club in Quebec is where anything goes…as in, you can get whatever you want in the private dance room. My agent told me I was to only do my 2 feature shows per night and to not be on the floor selling posters. Now, I don’t judge, I just go into a place where I am contracted to do my shows, perform and leave. It’s none of my business what goes on behind those doors cuz I’m not the one behind them. It does come to a bit of a surprise though, when you’re not used to seeing that or hearing about it.¬† Geeze, in Manitoba a private show is on a side stage and the customer has to be 3 feet away! And a ‘private dance’ in Quebec is $20.00 and $40.00 in Manitoba! SO different everywhere! But each place has their system and I have mine….on the big stage!¬†Well, nighty nite peeps and I will get caught up on my blogs and even have some photos to post ūüėÄ


Tortola, the British Virgin Islands Chapter #1

About two weeks prior to departing for a booking in Puerto Rico my agent called me to tell me that she didn’t think it was the best time for me to go there and wanted to postpone or cancel the contract. The owners were putting a lot more effort into a newer nightclub that had just opened up and she didn’t think it’d be in my best interest to work there while their attention was divided and letting things slide at the club I was supposed to be working in.¬† However, a spot just opened on another Caribbean island called, Tortola, and had asked if I’d be interested in going.

I would be the guinea pig with this new booking of hers, she had sent one girl previously and that girl only lasted a day! That girl worked one night then went back to her room, packed her things and took off unannounced. But this girl had a reputation for just randomly bailing out of bookings without notice and being quite a flake. So it wasn’t clear if it was her or the booking that prompted her leave like that. Welcome to the wonderful world of dancing! lol The club was still eager to have a Canadian girl work there and wanted to work through any challenges or diffferences that there may have been. My agent then procceeded to ask me if I minded dancing for ‘Island people’¬† seeing that they would be the majority of the clientel. “Of course not! I’ve performed all around the world for many different cultures and embrace each experience I get to have. Black, white, Asian…an audience is an audience,” was my enthusiastic¬†response. So I then confirmed it, packed my suitcase and off I went!

 

I was put up in a beautiful hotel with my room right off the beach and the owners of the club treated me with the utmost kindness and¬†respect; I felt comfortable right away and loved this laid back, Caribbean feel. Whoo hoo-paid vacation in paradise! After arriving at the club I could see why the previous girl may have been intimidated, when I first saw the club it was like a shack. But in the Caribbean, every thing’s a shack! lol And then there were these Island men who were huge and very forward. ¬†I kinda felt like I was a bit of an alien at one point. They were intrigued by my porcelain skin and blond hair and was constantly being poked and prodded; kinda like when you have show and tell at elementary school and I was the new toy. Because I was so different they were more interested in trying to touch my hair then watching me dance. I experienced a similar reaction in China. But these men were also SO respectful, passionate and warm. They were just curious. It was great to experience this other essence of masculinity.

When the dj and owner asked me what music do I dance to I jokingly said, “√ÄC/DC or Metallica!” Both of their faces went blank-it was hilarious. I then told them I was just kidding and that I could dance to reggae or dance music, whatever their audience prefers to hear. Could you imagine me rocking out on stage to ‘Enter Sandman’ for all these Caribbean peeps..lol Jamaican me crazy, mon! However, at one point, I did go to a birthday party and was completely amused by the fact they were playing Kenny Rodgers when I walked in!

One of the most important things I`ve learned in performing is how to tap into the audience and connect with them. For me, it’s all about the audience connection. The first, instant way to connect with an audience is through your music. So I always survey the audience right before my show to see who`s out there and determine what set I`m going to use. Needless to say, I refrained from using my rock sets!


Shout Outs

Hello All,

This blog is all about extending an immense THANK U to a few special peeps who have in one way or another showed some kindness and generousity to me over the last little while here in Oz. The gorgeous, Katey, who on my birthday got me a cake and brought it out onto the stage during my show with all the other dancers. It’d been a couple years since I’ve celebrated my birthday or even had a cake due to traveling so THAT was amazing and tasty! Wanted to make a mess and rub it all over my body BUT my desire to eat it was much greater! lol A BIG thanks to Robert, Kaye and Chloe who completely spoiled me with chocolate (definitely the way to my heart) a BEAUTIFUL silver¬†necklace from A&C Diamond Store, a rhinestone ¬†tiara fit for a queen, a key shaped picture frame, (the key to their hearts te-he-he) a silver, metal make up case¬†and a¬†rhinestone key-chain.¬†Definitely made me feel¬†like royalty and SO special-warm fuzzies all over from all that¬†getting spoiled!

Miss Kellie and PTree for always being so enthusiastic and building me the BIGGEST and BEST houses made out of tipping dollars! LOVED how on my birthday not only did their house take up half the runway on the stage but they started a trend, and everybody joined in! They even got the shy boys going! I absolutely love my job as an entertainer and putting on a show but I love it even more when the audience becomes a part of show :) That IS the Ultimate experience. Connecting and changing the energy in the room where everybody is having fun.

Matt, the bartender, who’s bringing me in home cooking!! THAT is my favorite!!! :) :) :) :) :) Thx to¬†Mr. Mike for the new laptop, special delivery. YAY!

Lindsay, who will be featured in an upcoming blog, who has been helping me with learning some more advanced and intricate pole moves, soon to be brought to the stage. SO excited! As a performer I believe that there’s always room to grow and evolve and this is an area I’ve wanted to challenge myself in for a while now and a challenge it is!! Been battered and bruised by my hot dates with the pole but no pain, no gain, right….¬†The new pole moves are incredible and a fun addition, right next to bondage restraints soon to come ūüėÄ

The Beautiful Sydney Fox, for the little jar of Vegemite lol now I’m a true Australian!

Of course, lots of appreciation for my friend Candie, who takes good care of me and who gave me a bouquet of one of my most favorite flowers, white lilies. Their scent filled up my flat and added so much beauty to a place which at times can be a bit dark.

I have been truly blessed here in Oz with some of the most playful, kind and generous people one could meet and I appreciate ALL the lovin! Thx for making it a special and fun birthday for me this year. xx

Another BIG THANK U to Nikki for bringing me in another beautiful bouquet of¬† white lilies!! My favorite :)¬†Flowers in general really are one of my most fave things; I used to grow roses…the only thing I could grow! lol Everything else would die but my roses. Just brightens the day! Her floral design company is Show It Floral Design in Adelaide, Australia if you need any arrangements!
