{Currently Reading} Lucille Ball & My Newest Act

If you know me at all you'll know that I'm an avid reader, as indicated by the stacks of books by the bedside, the somewhat disheveled and full-to-the-brim bookcases in my living room, the choice two books on the top of my weekend bag. Reading is the escape from my ever busy mind. And I'll let you in on a little secret...

Many of my burlesque acts draw inspiration from literary characters -- (Can you guess which act was inspired by Madam Bovary?)

And I must admit, I feel lately as though I'm in a relationship with Lucille Ball. I've been reading her autobiography and I'm absolutely helpless (or hopeless, I'm not sure which.) Do I look tired to you? It's most likely because Lucille and I have been spending nights together, completely unable to sleep, as her story has me wrapped around her little finger.

I've always admired and learned from the comedienne, but now I'm falling in love with the dramatic Lucy as well. This elegant Lucy is reinforcing what I've always believed -- that the sexiest women are always accompanied by a wink and a smile, that is to say a sense of humor.

This weekend, in Dallas, you can see my latest act inspired by the rarely seen, but absolutely important, sensual side of the ever fabulous Lucille Ball. Tickets: http://www.prekindle.com/promo/id/22815447475858364

Have a comedic & fabulous day! 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…

7 Spring Favs : Easy Must-Do's

What I love about spring is that it's flirtatious, it's peppy, and it's easy. It's energetic and exciting in a way that's rambunctious in a good way. In fact, I find myself wanting to be all of those things as well.  



Flirtatious, peppy, energetic, exciting, and rambunctious! 
It's May and before spring melds slowly into Summer, I always like to capture the bouncy moments of the season while I can! It's a time for peppy large arrangements of peonies (my absolute favorite spring flower) or bold arrangements with pops of brightly colored tulips! Before the summer heat creeps in, now is when I love to

1. Eat meals out on the porch
2. Take phone calls in the garden
3. Take walks immediately after spring rain has hit!
4. Change out my linens to bright colors and light textures
    - duvet cover
    - kitchen towels
    - table cloth


Because scent is a major part of spring I also love;
1. Big bouquets of fragrant flowers

2. Using really lovely floral cleaning…

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…
