What a marvelous weekend & beginning of the week this has been! Firstly,
thank you to all of you who came out to the Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue 
Show and to the first Jolie Goodnight & Her Stardust Band "Saturday Social"
and the East Side Showroom. Both shows were a big hit and both audiences
were the top! 

Secondly, thank you to all of you who voted for The Jigglewatss as the best
burlesque revue in Austin! We really appreciate you! 

And now for some notes:
1. I really do think our first Saturday Social was a great success! - a fun
laughing, dancing, singing audience. What a joy to have made so many
new friends & fans! It really felt like we went back to the 40s for a night.
Please join us for our next social :: October 25th at the Satellite Bistro 
& Bar. More details to come! 

2. Ruby Joule and I showed up to the Austin Chronicle's Best of Austin 
Party Tuesday evening in matching outfits. For those of you who get us
mixed up, or for those of you who just love us both to death, I'm sorry
you missed it! Oddly enough, we've done this once before only in fur 
coats in Dallas.

xo, Jolie

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…

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…

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…
