Open Letter to Jamelia (Her off Loose Women) – Plus Size Debate

So its hit the headlines faster than muck sprayed onto a field. And I hate to be juvenile but I see the similarities. It stinks. Dear Jamelia, Many of the general public know you as the once music performer and Loose Women co-host. But you are also a mother and I am sure many things.

The Fat Burlesque Girl On Stage

I am usually that ‘fat’ girl on stage when I perform. I am often referred to as such. Hell even I refer to myself as it at times. For me, fat is a three letter word that is nothing more than a descriptor. I do understand that for some people among us, that word is

River Island – High Street Hell/Heaven

I never would shop in River Island. Peering though the bright fluorescent lit doorway, intended to only see masses of polyester garments for the slimmer of the girls. The weird cut of clothing that never seemed to increase in arm hole despite upping in dress size. The very generic hipster throw away fashion that my

Something New

Recently I broke up with the person I thought was the love of my life. Turns out he wasnt and I deserve something better but lets not bash the poor guy. Seems not many people liked him. Funny how that happens when you break up with someone. I will however remain dignified and composed. Backstabbing

Nudity In Its Barest Form

I am often called upon to model (ha) for various photographers and whilst mostly this is fairly tame though imaginative I am rarely called upon to model nude. Not pornographic nude, or even Front style glamour nude. I am talking arty farty bone-afide artistic nude. Despite artists such as those during the Renaissance period favouring the more

Boudoir A La Northampton

Today I was on set for a boudoir shoot with the lovely James Thorpe. Determined not to go to ‘pinup’ with this shoot and to get the images James wanted I was excited. I have a fairly strong connection with Northampton. I have performed there many times for Vivid Soda, Be Barb Burlesque and a
