<![CDATA[Getting over my photo phobia!]]>Thu, 19 Nov 2015 14:58:51 GMThttp://rosevonsweetsdecadentdelicates.weebly.com/blog/getting-over-my-photo-phobiaI am sure I am not alone in the world when I say that I HATE having my photo taken! Group shots are the worst… I always feel like I take the worst photo in the group. I have gotten a lot better over the last few months and it was when I was asking myself ‘what has changed?’ that it I realized I am in more photos now than I ever have been in the past.
So in order to banish this phobia completely I set myself a task: To take a selfie once a day and put it on Instagram.
Now I admit I didn’t keep to it very well, but I still learned something! I learned that the more comfortable I get taking photos of myself the less uncomfortable and stressful taking photos becomes.
With this in mind I am going to set myself the task of doing it each day for the next 4 weeks.
I will be posting my efforts here and on my social media channels. Feel like joining in? Add the following #selfiechallenge so I keep up with your photo phobia progress too. Feel free to comment with you thoughts or experiences 

<![CDATA[Staying motivated....]]>Mon, 04 May 2015 16:51:53 GMThttp://rosevonsweetsdecadentdelicates.weebly.com/blog/staying-motivated
Remembering How Far You've Come!

It Can be increditbly difficult to stay motivated. Life has a tendency to get between you and a goal, espiecially one as sparkley as becoming a proffessional show girl. When I am feeling down and worried about whether it will happen I look back on images taken at my previous shows. Espiecially when i am holding my fans. Love Da Fans!

Find a dance Troupe or group of like minded people

without the support from the Scarlet Ribbon girls i wouldn't be where i am today. The Scarlet Ribbon School of Burlesque has helped me find the confidence let out my inner show girl. If you aren't part of a dance troupe i would recommend joining one, if there isn't one near by perhaps you could start your own? Nothing like Feathers, Glitter and corsets to inspire female bonding!

Set goals and be Focussed!

Without focus it can be difficult to acheive your goals and without goals it can be impossible to stay focused. Concentrate on acheiving ONE thing each day or week that will bring you closer to acheiving your goals.

<![CDATA[Nipples Pasties... how to attach!]]>Sun, 03 May 2015 09:30:44 GMThttp://rosevonsweetsdecadentdelicates.weebly.com/blog/nipples-pasties-how-to-attachThere has been much talk in my Facebook and instagram newsfeed about the #freethenipple campaign. I whole hearted support the initiative, and wanted to talk today about the attaching of the sparkly nipple coverings known as Pasties.
To Attach:

There are many ways to adhere these sparkly confections to your nipples, all with advantages and disadvantages. The below suggestions are made from my personal experience and are by far not an exhaustive list.
  • Fashion/toupe tape- this is a great adhesive and is my method of choice. make sure to only add the tape to the outer parameter of the pasties so none is on the nipple. It can be a bit of a fiddle to remove the backing paper but is cheaper than eyelashes glue and fairly easy to remove the residue from the back of the pastie and your breast.

  • Eyelashe glue- clear glue works well although I found it difficult to remove the residue from my Pasties, which can effect the longevity of your Pasties

  • Self adhesive Pasties- you can buy Pasties that come with a sticky layer on the back. i don't like these as i don't like the adhesive coming into direct contact with my nipple but i know some show gals prefer this no fuss application.
***always read labels and check for allergies before use of any adhesive product

<![CDATA[My Next Performance- choosing the music]]>Wed, 29 Apr 2015 17:06:03 GMThttp://rosevonsweetsdecadentdelicates.weebly.com/blog/my-next-performance-choosing-the-musicI am excited to annouce that my next Solo performance will be in June. i have wanted to choreograph a performance to a peice of opera music since I began learning the art of burlesque.

The peice of music i have chosen is 'Il dolce suono'
("The Sweet Sound") it was composed by Gaetano Donizetti as part of 'Lucia di Lammermoo'  this piece is known as 'the mad scene'. In the opera the lead soprano descends into madness on her wedding noght and kills her husband.

I will be performing to the arrangment from 'The Fifth Element' this is one of my favourite Sci Fi movies of all time and I would really like to combine some of the themes from the original opera with some of the themes from the film.

The prop i have chosen for the performance is a set of Isis wings as oposed to my usual fans. this will be my first solo with isis wings so am excited to see how this turns out.

Join me again tomorrow for more details from behind the glitter.
