Now that the new year has arrived, I have such exciting news to share!
Here is a note from the Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue:
"Dearest Friends, Fans, and Supporters,
We are so excited to announce that we have been selected to bring our show to Australia. Yes, AUSTRALIA!

We have been selected to bring our narrative burlesque production of "Hollywood Havana" for a month-long run at the retro-cool venue DeVille's Pad as part of the FRINGE WORLD festival in Perth, Australia in January and February, 2015.

This will be our first Jigglewatts tour outside of the USA, and we are pretty dang excited.

With 18 performances confirmed between January 23 - February 19, 2015 at the beautiful 350-seat venue DeVille's Pad, the production includes classic burlesque performed with a live band, the way it was originally performed by the superstars of its heyday. The narrative story hearkens to the golden era of Hollywood and the glamour and mystery of exotic destinations. The show features an internationally acclaimed all-star cast from the US, Italy, Belgium, and Australia. Sponsorship goals include airfare for the Texas-based cast to Perth, and per diem expenses. Sponsor benefits include high visibility amongst an international audience of 25 - 45 year old nightlife-loving men and women."

Thanks & cheers and love, 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…

4th of July Menus in the 1950s

Each time I travel to Europe I am instantly aware of the cultural nuances that differ between parts of each country. Eastern Southern France is in many many ways very different from Western Northern France. Some old languages even remain and without a doubt food customs are still widely kept alive. A cassoulet in France differs from town to town and each town takes massive pride in their own "essential" cassoulet.

I become then, keenly aware of the fact that the United States is the same way, though not often recognized. While we typically think of the US as serving hot dogs, hamburgers, grilled corn, etc on the 4th of July, there is no doubt in my mind that the East Coast will have some customary Independence day foods that won't likely hit the plate in the Southwest. And as another example, Texas is more likely to find brisket on the 4th of July table than say, Boston (I suppose?)



I think the same could be noted then, not just regionally, but also yearly. The things we…

Tuesday: Design {Boudoir & Closet}

I find that when I dream about my boudoir I, romanticism takes over my brain. It's as if I'm Madame Bovary and I desire violet cotton handkerchiefs, soft pink silks that look like ballet slippers, breezy lace curtains, wooden hand-painted fans, bolts of red toille, glamorous glass bottles of flowery perfumes, grandiose mirrors with gold leaf frames, and delicate gloves with buttons on the side. What is it about romantic items like these that make a gal's heart flutter? Is it the care we imagine we will take to dress ourselves in a boudoir? It is that we imagine we will emerge flawless and more elegant? Will picking out clothing be easier? Or will we continue, in the rush of the morning, find our clothes on the closet floor or hastily slug on wooden hangers? Will our shoes be gleaming on the organized shelves? Or scattered across the carpet with dirt stuck to the stiletto heels?
