R.I.P. Jerry Leiber

Jerry Leiber, who with songwriting partner Mike Stoller helped forge entire chapters in the early history of rock and roll, has died at the age of 78.
For The Coasters they wrote "Charlie Brown," "Searchin'," "Yakety Yak," "Young Blood" and "Poison Ivy."
They penned "Stand By Me" and "Spanish Harlem" for Ben E. King, and "On Broadway" and "There Goes My Baby" for The Drifters. They also scored hits for Peggy Lee ("Is That All There Is?" and "I'm a Woman"), LaVern Baker ("Saved") and The Clovers ("Love Potion #9"), among others.

Drink Me!

I love the green colour of the "Fiona Timantti" drink!

"Sounds too good to be true!" That's what i first thought when i heard about this opportunity Cointreau was about to offer us (me, Bettie B. and Kiki H. from Helsinki Burlesque). They were gonna give us our own drinks! Yes, even though i'm pretty much a total "nobody" in this big world, i have my own drink, haha! And i love Cointreau!

Tomorrow we are having this Ravintolapäivä (restaurant day) here in Helsinki and i'm hosting my Diamond Stash Speakeasy again. So if you are in Helsinki area, come join us! Last time i had hundreds of guests.. Come, Drink Me!

Also check out Cointreau website for more delicious drinks!

Burlesque Superstar Lada wearing FT hat!

A sneak peek of Lada Redstars brand new act "Swallow of Spring". I made that huge custom swallow hat especially for that number. It was a lot of work but also lot of fun! Lada is such a sweet girl!

Ok, one of you, my dear readers, is about to receive something wonderful! As you can see, there is the Ansa Second Hand Shop logo on the right of this page. I'm very happy to say that they are my sponsors! And it's all thanks to them that i can have this wondeful 250 (253 actually...) readers giveaway!
They just happen to have these amazing czech, deadstock, art nouveau style earrings from the 20's. I'm simply nuts about them and would love to own them all. You can imagine how thrilled i was when they gave me a pair! And one pair for one of you, my 253 readers!

Make-up and hair by me

This is the pair that can soon be yours:
A beutiful and delicate art nouveau style earrings with white/babyblue glass teardrop and little rhinestone detail.
They are almost 10cm (almost 4 inch, right..?) long.
Note: these are not made of any precious metal, so they might cause an allergic reaction to some. In that case you might want to change the hooks...
I had no problems with mine, but just so you know.

Just follow my blog and leave a comment to this post, if you would like to own this pair. I definitely ship worldwide :)

The winner will be announced later...Good Luck!
