Catching up}

...almost impossible to catch my breath after returning home, yet grateful for the never-ending fun that life provides. Yesterday an extravaganza of Italian groceries (and an abundance of Italian wine), fresh peach bellinis, time spent with my fairy Godmother...

& Tonight a dinner at my favorite Austin restaurant with family and friends!

So you can catch up with me this week:
{1} Performing burlesque May 9th  {Tickets here}
{2} An interview with Johnnie Goudie {here}
{3} My cover of "Silver Dagger" made it on to the Top Folks Albums, Songs, Artists List! Download the song here (& tell me what you think!) {listen here}
{4} A recent review of my record in Jazz Journal Magazine --- “a flowery vibrato reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe makes numbers like These Foolish Things as melt-in-your-mouth as candyfloss.”
- Sally Evans-Darby, Jazz Journal Magazine"
Have a beautiful Wednesday!

7 Spring Favs : Easy Must-Do's

Because scent is a major part of spring I also love;

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!

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…
