Burlesque and Boobs...

For those of you who haven't heard the Vintage Swish on Sunday (all for Charity darling) was a HUGE success...we raised a shed load of money and had a fabulous time.

We have been featured in lots of press because of it....disappointingly I look very hot and sweaty which is clearly not the look I was aiming for but never mind.

The most popular part of the event (apart from the cake which was AMAZING) was the burlesque.

The girls were simply fabulous and loved the fact it was all in the aid of charity....what lovely girls indeed.

After chatting with them after I was overjoyed that they would be willing to do it all over again to raise more money and I was also very jealous over the fact they are all stunning, dressed in amazing costumes and can walk in high heels (something I have never mastered).

So...let me introduce the fabulous Victory Vixens...

Bettie Wishes

Daisy Champagne

Ava Iscariot

Sophia StVillier

Luna DeLovely (modelling Victory Vixens lingerie)

Sadly I can't find a picture of our FABULOUS compere Miss Lainy Tuesday but let me just say that the sight of her in her outfit made me want to rush out and get bigger boobs and a stack of corsets immediately.

So....if anyone is looking for a fabulous burlesque act and do their bit for charity all at the same time then let us know xx

...and lets be honest who doesn't...??

Sadly I was at the end of the queue when God was handing out boobs so am not blessed with much but I love what I have got and with a help of a padded bra they can look very respectable indeed.

So as you can imagine it makes me sad when bad things happen to boobs especially young boobs who haven't had a chance to get out in the world and experience all the stares from men, the groping, the joy of jogging when you have forgotten to put on a sports bra etc.

A charity that feels the same as me is the fabulous Coppa Feel.

The story behind it is that the lovely Kris was diagnosed at the age of 23 with breast cancer. She had been to the doctors with concerns about a pain in her breast but was assured it was hormonal (even though her Grandmother had breast cancer at 30) and sent on her way to go travelling as she had planned. When she returned she went straight back to the doctor with the same problem only to be sent away AGAIN and it was only after her Mother (who clearly rocks) demanded that she be referred that she got the examination she needed and was diagnosed.

So as well as fighting cancer she is also on a crusade to raise awareness of breast cancer in young women...Kris we salute you.

So people...if you do notice anything amiss please get down to the doctors pronto as whether they are big or small we should all love our boobs!!

Cabaret for cancer...

Sorry for the lack of blogs lovely people but I have been on holiday....well I say holiday it was actually like getting on a plane and going to Essex (I am from Essex so am allowed to say this), whilst in Costa del Essex (Spain) I saw no Spanish people and all my food came with was not the cultural delight I was hoping for but I enjoyed the red wine ALOT.

Right...back to business.

Those of you who know me as the girl from Hummingbird Vintage know I am putting on an event this  weekend to raise money for two fab cancer charities...MacMillan and Coppa Feel.

It started off as a vintage fair but has turned into an amazing night of burlesque...I for one can't wait!!

Through organising this I have been put in touch with some truly fab people and it was surprising how many of them had been touched by cancer.

So I started thinking....wouldn't it be lovely to organise burlesque nights for charity on a regular basis or even a Victory Vixens burlesque troupe to help raise money for the site so we can help more girlies/ladies/women win the battle over cancer.

I imagine we would be much like the Pussycat Dolls but with less of a tan and more sequins.

...a tanned American version of us...maybe!!

I really want to something a bit different to get this charity noticed and, lets be honest, who wouldn't want to sip cocktails whilst being entertained by some of the most gorgeous girls in burlesque!!
