Tease and Trouble at The Meteor

This Saturday night just past, saw Mumpty attend the first heat of Tease & Trouble Productions' Grand Tease NZ.  Held at The Meteor Theatre, it was an absolute highlight on Glamilton's burlesque calendar and I was very excited to be the Door Dolly, which is an arduous job consisting of taking tickets and selling merch! … Continue reading Tease and Trouble at The Meteor

My week in coffee

Pinup shoes: the good, the bad and the ugly!

(well, in my opinion anyway!)  I know, I know - I've included these shoes before!  But you know what? I'm going to include them again, because they are just sooooo darling! Obviously these shoes and their ilk are out of most pinup's budget (other than Dita's of course!)  Soooo for those of us who have … Continue reading Pinup shoes: the good, the bad and the ugly!
