Sparkle and Glamour

So, as I said I intend to actually do all of the suggestions that were given to me below in an attempt to find my thing. (I'm at 22 comments there, so close...)

Today, I'm going to do a feature on one of my favourite blogs. (This feature I will definitely keep doing. Why wouldn't I want to share the joy of some of the blogs that make me happy each day)
This blog is one that absolutely gets read daily. If I have time to read nothing else in a day, I find a few moments for hers.

My darling Glamour Puss from The Pole Affair is the first blogger that I ever exchanged personal information with. She saw that I was lamenting the lack of Shu Uemura mascara here in Winnipeg, and offered to send me some from London. And from there? A love affair was born. (With Glamour Puss, not the mascara. The mascara was actually rather disappointing since it got such rave reviews)

Now "why," you may ask do I love Glamour Puss so? You mean aside from the fact that she included some adorable pink knickers and a Mae West card in with the mascara? Well let me tell you...

Her blog is one of the most honest that I've ever read. She puts it all out there for her readers to see. She will admit when she possibly didn't behave as well as she could have. But she will also acknowledge when she is right and someone else is acting poorly.

And the title of her blog? It's accurate. I have learned more about the art of pole dancing, burlesque, aeriel tissu, and the like in the past couple of years of reading her blog than I ever could have imagined. It's a whole fascinating world that I didn't know existed.

And though her calendar has gotten so busy that she hasn't done this in a while- if you want to know one of her things? It's called "Elegantly Dressed Wednesdays" This feature is a fascinating look at some amazing men and women throughout history who have shown style and class. It's been an educational experience. Often I had never heard of her more "classic" nominees, but by the end of each post, you're definitely convinced that they are well-deserving of the award.

Add to all that a kind of raw sweetness that is both endearing and empowering. She will write about sex and the joys of a good "wank" (a word I had never heard of before that post). And she will write about lingerie and nipple tassels.

Then she will write about her lovely friends, the students she teaches (both on the pole and with books) and her love of macaroons. You never know what kind of post to expect from her from one day to the next. Will it be a glamourous post about a burlesque show she performed in? Will it be a heart-wrenching post about her mother's health or her childhood? Will it be a racy post about her and the Buddhist Hunk?

And she has a lovely vocabulary and a wonderful way with words. It is immediately apparent that she has a brain and isn't afraid to use it. I have more than once had to look things up after reading one of her posts and emails. (Who else here knows what a marabou is? Apparently I sent her one once and didn't even know it. In the Princess's vocabulary - I sent her a "pink fluffy thing")

So everyone? Why don't you stop by at Chez Glamour? I know she'd be a most gracious hostess.
