{New Orleans & Kaylin Idora}

I'm sure that many burlesque performers are feeling butterflies & excitement in anticipation for the beautiful New Orleans Burlesque Festival. Monday and Tuesday are the days for dreaming & preparing, planning & rehearsing. And after a luxurious weekend spent performing (and socializing) at the Luxe Stoneleigh Hotel, it feels as if the beginning of the week is only a brief pause before indulging in perfect evenings and gracing a beautiful stage...
...And once back in one of my favorite cities in the world, New Orleans, I'll have the pleasure of working with one of my favorite photographers while there. 

What makes Kaylin's work so devastatingly gorgeous is that she is able to capture the glamour of a moment while still keeping the genuine character of the model. Sometimes glamour can feel so stifled, so stiff. However Kaylin creates art by sweeping all the charm of a person into one magical portrait that's filled with life and romance. It's truly luxurious. 


I hope your Monday is charming and lovely! xo, Jolie

{5 Ways to Add Old Hollywood Glamour to Your Home}

Five Ways to Add Old Hollywood Glamour To Your Home:
1. Mix metals - Whoever said metals shouldn't be mixed hasn't glimpsed at the magic that happens when a room is filled with gold and silver details accompanied by mirrors and crystal. The result is a beautifully opulent room!

2. A fur (or faux fur) throw - Tossed about on a chair or couch, this room accessory makes any snuggling instantly more glamorous.  (This luxury can also be in the form of a pillow or rug.)

3.  Color Pallette - The go-to-never-fail feminine color pallette tends to be camel, ivory, and soft pink. I'm a fan of also adding small bits of blue here and there (it adds depth.)

4. Art deco lines + Plush furniture - Balance out more comfy couches and chairs with sleek, art deco pieces like tables, bar carts, coffee tables, mirrors, etc.

5. Have a bar set with alcohol, crystal glasses, and an ice bucket - What ALWAYS happens in every hold Hollywood movie? A cock…

Blossoming from Grief

In 2017 I lost my darling husband, Jason Musick, in a tragic accident, changing my life within seconds. It seems almost needless to say, but after such a tremendous, heart-shattering loss, many parts of my life were put on hold, this blog included.

Truth told I wasn't sure how to proceed with my blog; much of it was based on my life as it existed before his death. The parties we threw, the dinners we cooked, the house we made a home, the vintage lifestyle we lead, the music we enjoyed together. To me those were the products of our love, the promise that we would live a full life together saying "yes" always, especially to the magic life had to offer. Much of the entries, though they were intended to apply to anyone in a relationship or not, were none-the-less from my perspective which was lovingly based on my marriage and partnership that had been in the making for 12 years. How does one write about doing wifely things when one is no longer a wife? My identity as a wife…

4 Daily Cleaning Checklists To Make Your Life Easier

In practicing my New Year's Resolution of, "habits = happiness" I began a very extensive search into cleaning checklists. I'll reiterate something I've said it other posts -  It’s not that I want to be Susie Homemaker, but I fully recognize that fact that a huge pile of laundry is stressful to me. It is obvious to me now that I become giddy at the sight of a well-made bed. One day at a time works better for me than letting my home's accouterments scatter around the household until I have to spend and entire day (or two) trying to put things back together. I refuse to treat my house like humpty-dumpty.

Better yet, I like that idea that anyone can drop by my home at almost anytime and I'm not frantically cramming the mess into a closet to hide now, then sort a year from now. 

A home kept daily means more time to do things like this (which is a #lifegoal for me. Duh:)


I've been experimenting with 2 different methods:
1. Focus on one room per week 
2. Focus o…
