Sorry about the nutshell joke. Whenever someone says 'in a nutshell' I can't help but think of Alan Partridge pretending he's in one literally. Anyway, to move on to my promised update number 2!

So I was talking about the year so far, the crazy business escalation and my new website and range &etc. Now for some more exciting stuff with pics and all!
I suppose the biggest event I've been trading at so far in the young life of GG is the Welsh Burlesque Festival. Held at the end of March it was a hub of shimmaying and tassles and lovely talented lady dancers as well as a fayre with suitable fayre to sell. Alongside GG's Pin-up Couture, there was the lovely My Delilah aka Sandy Sure who makes fantastic costumes as well as amazing lolly pop accessories such as this:
A teeny picture but as you can see it looks fabulous! There was also the lovely vintage-inspired greeting cards of Sammy B, Prowling Leopard Designs, BlueBeadesque and lots more, information about whom can be found at the Welsh Burlesque Festival's site.
Unfortunately I didn't take many pics as I was way too busy, but there should be some up on the Festival's site pretty soon along with a video interview of me (quel horreur!) which I will probably try to avoid watching as I looked and sounded stupid.
Anna Fur Laxis to the Maxis!
Again, sorry for the awful play on words. I can't resist!
Earlier in March I was as pleased as punch to get a reply from the lovely Anna Fur Laxis' agent to say that Anna would love to model some of my fascinators! I've been a fan of Anna's for ages and love her fresh take on Burlesque and her mischievous air (she describes herself as a 'ninja'). I also contacted Flashes and Lashes as I'd heard a lot about their company as well as seen lots of amazing images of pin-ups and lovely ladies in vintage apparel. The ladies, Emma and Sali are lovely - so helpful and professional & it looks like they had a blast during the shoot as you'll see from the next photo. I just wish I could have been there too - I'd have loved to have met them all.
Ms. Moo of Flashes and Lashes and Anna Fur Laxis stop for a snack
Those of you who are fans of GG's on Facebook are probably sick of me posting that pic - but I love it! Haha!
My eyes are getting tired now as it's been a long day of creating, packing parcels and ideas so I'll bid you all adieu. I'll continue with all the gossip soon!
