Lacy Bralets

Don’t get me wrong, I love my Miraculous Victoria’s Secret push up bra that gives you a boost up to three cup sizes.  Thanks Sun’s cheerleader BFF Megan for the tip on that one!  BUT I also love wearing no wires, lacy, comfy bras that don’t give you a back ache because the girls are hiked up to your chin! Ohh the struggles are real!

Here are some cauuuuttteee Victoria’s Secret lacy bralets I think you and I should all get!!! :p

The second one is my favorite but I wish the lace extended to the sides.  They just look like normal bra straps! 😦 Ugh!  The last one is perfect for cooler temps in the fall.  A little more coverage for warmth, and the lace looks so chic peeking out from under a loose fitting tee.  Do you have a favorite?

My Last Day at The Jubes In Videos!

IMG_7057

I thoroughly enjoyed my 1 1/2 years at Jubilee! here in Las Vegas.  I am still so honored to have been a part of the 32 year old spectacular- the last remaining showgirl spectacle on the strip!   I am especially thankful given the recent dramaaaa floating around regarding the Jubilee overhaul.  Mr. Frank Gatson Jr, “choreographer to the stars,” (AKA BEYONCE) has signed on to revamp Jubilee after it has pretty much stayed the same show for 32 years.  Now that the show is threatening to change, I’m so happy to have been in at least one of the “original” versions of the show.  Who knows, maybe it will largely stay the same with some great additions of…LED screens, holographic people, and HIGHER DANCE HEELS! OH GOD FORGET IT!!! IT IS ALL DOWNHILL!!! RUN!  Just joshin…. I really do think the show needs it.

I personally agree that:  1. It needs somewhat of a story line.  Or at least blocks of story lines.  Like “Showgirls through the years” or “Las Vegas” or “Hollywood Movie Musicals” or “Beyonce Rules the World.”  I don’t know, just some sort of semblance of a seamless show.  2. It is boring.  Take out those terrible variety acts PLEASE!!!! and just make the show shorter, don’t add a hologram of Danny The Cube Guy twirling shit.  It is not going to be better.  3.  I agree with the costume updates for the dudes.  Those sparkly t-shirts do NOT complement our rhinestone magnificent behemoths.  They just don’t.

Other than that, he wants to “look at raising the heel height.”  Ugh yikes. No thanks.  And change the choreo.  Has he ever choreographed for musical theater, let alone topless musical theater?  He might be in over his head.

Reality is finally kicking in in fantasy Natalie land and I have less than a week until I begin rehearsals with Mike Maloney Productions and learn new shows to dance on the Celebrity Century cruise ship!!  First Disneyland, then Jubilee, now I am starting another dream job on my list…it’s amazing!  I’ve started to pack…nope…started to think about what to pack.  And then I do nothing.  Can’t wait to spend the week taking care of business (nails, massages, go karting…the usual) and then start sweating it out in the rehearsal room.  Looking forward to working 6 days again, but this time its 9am-5pm rehearsals for a whole month!  Ugh!  Better get used to that normal people time.  Yuck.

Here is a video I smashed together of all the videos I took on my last day at the Jubes.  Hopefully there aren’t too many boobs in it!  If you find it boring, it might be because of the lack of boobs, or you just should not watch my videos cuz you suck.  Anywhoo, I had an amazing last day and I hope you enjoy the 8 minute video!  Thanks to all my wonderful friends in the Jubilee family who made me feel so loved and special.  I will never forget you! 😀

Showgirl Makeup…Uh….Tutorial?

IMG_7063

IMG_7138

Well…I would like to preface saying my last day at the Jubes was a little bit busy sooo I kind of forgot that I had wanted to film my whole makeup process…so I started in the middle, cut out the middle, but managed to get my lips and lashes filmed.

Well… I would also like to say that I am just glad I got a little bit of my experience at the jubes on video.  I also love the conversations that were going on in the dressing room while I did my makeup so Ill include those in a future video.

This one is just quick to show a little of what the makeup process is: quite intensive in heavy application, a la drag queen makeup, but we can really get it all done in less than 10 minutes.  We then have 3 minutes to put on underwear, fishnets, LaDuca silver heels, underwire. Then at 2 minutes you put on gloves, necklace, earrings, bracelets, skirt, and you’re on!

I use all MAC makeup, because we get a little discount, but my lipstick is Walmart Retro Red for 99 cents!!!!! LOL.  “Get that classic showgirl red from your local Walmart!”  Cracks me up.

Our huge lashes are “special order” from who knows where in Asia and each showgirl has to pay $4 per set to the Jubilee office. Ridiculous.  Some girls use one pair per 6 months, I think I went through 6 pairs in 3 contracts, so 1 pair every 3 months.

Thanks for readin’!

Natalie’s Best Vegas Haunts 2013

Last October in Vegas was seriously one of my favorite months ever!!!  I mean: pumpkin flavored everything, a plethora of candy, and so much stuff to do!!! The BEST Halloween Haunts according to moi are as follows:

maxresdefault

1.  Fright Dome! www.frightdome.com I am going tomorrow night and am SO EXCITED!!  If you’re familiar with Knott’s Scary Farm in So Cal it is very similar, but scarier! -They fill the whole Adventure Dome with fog and monsters!!!  Aghhhh!!!  Definitely the best place to go and worth the money!!

2.  The Asylum.  Last Year it was Downtown Las Vegas, but this year it is at Meadows Mall by the 95.  SO SCARY!!  Hotel Fear is not as scary, I recommend skipping it, but the Asylum really scared us shitless last year!!!    http://lasvegashaunts.com/location.php

3.  Bonnie Screams at Bonnie Springs.  http://wickedhaunts.com/  

I haven’t personally attended this particular haunt yet because SOMEBODY went without me. Not naming any names: Kara.  OOpz.  😉  But I hear it is a fun little ghost town to go to and they have lots of halloween attractions!  Definitely planning on going this weekend!

4.  Sin City Scare Fair.  On Sunset Rd just off The Strip. http://sincityscarefair.com/  This Halloween fair is new to Vegas this year and sounds kind of awesome.  They have a go kart race track WITH ZOMBIES!  I cant even….like…  I have to go!

5.  The Las Vegas Halloween Parade!  http://www.thelasvegashalloweenparade.com/  It is Downtown on Halloween night at 7pm followed by a free after party until 3am!  Sounds kind of awesome.  And since i am NOT dancing in Jubilee this season, I can go! How exciting!  Maybe I will see you there!

93deee0ff7711276e0501f876e108bde

6.  The End Bar and Grill.  S. Decatur Blvd.  If you’re looking for a place to whet your whistle after screaming and running from crazy clowns with chainsaws all night, head to The End, a zombie apocalypse themed bar and grill!  I’m sure I will definitely be needing a drink, or two, after this crazy list!

Are you going to attempt any frightening Halloween mazes?

If you are of the nutsier persuasion there is the Freakling Bros Trilogy of Terror.  Each maze gets scarier, and the third and final maze is “interactive,” which means they manhandle you and stuff!  Omg no thank you!!!

And I have to mention poor Eli Roth’s Goretorium on the Strip just filed for bankruptcy not even making it to another Halloween night. Yikes.  Don’t try and go there!  $10 million spent on that haunted house.  Sayonara!

The Fetish and Fantasy Ball at Hard Rock Hotel sounds like quite the night, but I am not shelling out at least $50 to arrive at 1am, 3 hours after the party started, to hang out with drunken jerks.  Ill take the free downtown parade. 😉

Looks like The Act at The Venetian is having a paranormal Halloween party on October 31st.  Could be pretty fun, if it’s not too crowded!

Ok for reals, these two parties on Halloween sound like my kind of thing:

Body English at Hard Rock
● Rock n’ Horror 80s Halloween Party on October 31 at 10:30 p.m.

and

Commonwealth in Fremont East
● Monster Mash Prom Oct. 30 to transform bar into spooky vintage horror flick
● Guests are invited to “rock zombie prom attire”

Mmmmmmmmmm I think I will be attending Monster Mash Prom.  SO awesome!!!!  Now I need a prom date. (high school girl giggles)

Have fun and SCREAMMM!!!!!!

Last Day at Jubilee!

20130926-032842.jpg

Can’t believe this day is here already!  Looking a little too happy in the pic above that I only have one more Top Hat to do!  We have one last show tomorrow then a party at Sugar Factory and its allllllll over, for now!  Feeling a little bit weepy that I won’t be a showgirl anymore with the best cast on the planet, but I’m not going to miss climbing 1700 stairs a night!  Gonna miss my nudies, tall and short, so much.   The cast, the crew, wardrobe, crazy people, nice people, dramatic people, the best people, my favorite people, the funniest people.  All of them work here at the Jubes and I am so thankful to have spent hours and hours laughing and dancing with all of you.   I know I’ve already written all this…but I know I’m going to be a sobbing mess tomorrow.  Im not good at goodbyes!  I love the show a lot and being in it, but it is very, very tiring.  And I honestly can’t do another 6 months of that choreo! 😉  Maybe break it up with a couple cruise contracts, and come back for a little while.  We’ll see.  🙂  Gonna get a little sleep and then bust out one last fantastic show at the longest running show on the Las Vegas Strip as a topless showgirl in Jubilee!  Nighty night.
