Hello ladies I had the pleasure to interview Khandie Khisses!
This lady is a great Role model to any person reading this interview

Voted into The Top 50 Burlesque Stars of the World (2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012).
Placed in Top 20 Burlesque Performers in UK 2013.

*a few funny moments ahead that will make you spit your tea all over your computer which happend to me while doing this interview!! 
Read &Enjoy!!!

1-whats in your make up bag?

GUM! I always get a mouth drier than a desert before performing so I always have a packet hand.

Mascara -  I am naturally *ginger* eek and so have the palest of eyelashes. Thick black mascara is my weapon of choice. 

Rice powder - no shiny face for me.

Kirby grips - you gotta have those.

Lipstick - whatever colour I am wearing that day. Probably MAC and probably something garish. I do love Candy Yum Yum layered with Rebel at the moment.

2-your a performer! How long does it take to create outfits?

Its a bit of a hard one to tie down. I can create a costume in a week, piecing together existing costumes or like my most recent one, take 6 months. 

3- your heading to a music festival please pick your top 5 luxury items?

SUNCREAM! Adults have no excuse for sun burn, plus it can double up as moisturiser. Mascara. Chewing gum (stinky breathe is a NO NO). dry shampoo - no greasy locks.  Lady wipes. I dont want no dirty fanny or stinking crotch from 3 days in a mud slide festival LOL.

4-from tthe pictures you post, you must love fashion!? Please pick 5 of your favorite day or evening outfits?

The first one is me off to a meeting. I actually wore this sequin skirt to death! My shape is hourglass so I always try to highlight my waist.

The second I was off to work as a photographer for the day so I needed to be comfortable but as the shoot was outside, jacket was essential. The short sleeves help by not being too constricting. Plus who doesnt love faux fur!?

The third I was looking over a show I was curating. Hence the hipster look. This dress is my favorite dress up/down number. My cat ear hat was an impulsive  buy. I have yet to regret it.

The fourth is a £5 dress i bought at a vintage fair. its a 60s needed ONE stitch so I snapped it up and I adore it. Those heels are a Tesco's sales bargain for all of £7 hahaha. BARGAIN.

The fifth is my rather naughty outfit. I work it to teach burlesque. Hotpants are perfect for teaching but not for shopping in tescos after. I love the cutesy preppy side of this but lets be fair, LEGSHOW!

5-whats your favorite fragrance? Any Viv Westwood for the day but onstage I wear Black XS.

6-whats your daily make-up routine? Moisturise like crazy. Eyebrows, eyeliner then mascara. Moisturiser is key. Never forget it.

7-pleas pick 3of your favorite performance outfits and why? 

My newest one. It took ages to come together and is worth every second of that wait. I adore it. Its feminine whilst maintaining strength. Plus I feel bad ass in it. Georgina Brown made this one. She knows her cage bras! I feel awesome in this outfit. 

My second was a costume that has spawned a life long friendship and business relationship with Vintage Lynndy Loo. This costume has changed its purpose over the years but I utterly adore how Lynn (owner/designer/demi goddess of Vintage Lynndy Loo) knows how to fit a corset to my shape. She is sensational. The costume is as perfect today as when I first took ownership of it.

My final piece is another Vintage Lynndy Loo costume but this one is especially close to my heart. It launched a whole new world for me: acting. I wear this costume in two films by Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins: Jimmy's End and His Heavy Heart. Its a Lynn special so fits perfect but it is my first corseted bodysuit. Painful if you want to get out for the loo but worth it. I spent 16hrs a day for a week in this outfit. I love it. Special pride in my costume room.

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy. *Rooms* Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc... Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc... Dining room- ( same as above) Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply s

Money saving Hacks | Christmas | 2020 edition |

It's that time of the year...   Remembering all the kids Christmas activities, nursery and school nativity plays, Christmas gift shopping, scheduling friends and family to come over during the holidays, teacher gifts, phonics, cooking the Turkey....   1- Plan Christmas a year to 6 months in advance  I know this sounds nuts but honestly knowing what is happening and who you're visiting makes it a lot easier and less stressful.  2- Buy gifts in the boxing day and January sales. Buy and stock up throughout the year on all the sales. It's amazing how much money you can save by doing this. I manage to save up to £200/£300 by doing this each year.  3- The things you don't think of buying in those sales. Wrapping paper, christmas cards, tape, gift tags, gift bags, Christmas arts and crafts for the kids, stickers, advent calendars (the non-chocolate ones) I brought the Harry Potter charms bracelet advent calendar and frozen 2 advent calendar in Sainsburys

5 creative ways to make extra money

1- sell unwanted items Is it time to do a clear out? Need a little extra money? Sell those trousers you've not worn in 3 months and sell the dress you've only worn twice.  Make sure all items are washed, no marks and no rips etc... these are all things that will help you in the selling process. Take lots of photos of the items, compare on other selling sites to make sure you check out your competitors. Good places to sell are facebook pages, Ebay, depop, Amazon, car boot sale and friends or family  2- creative skills  Are you creative with woodwork, clay, jewellery making, etc... if so put these hobbies into a place online and sell them! Don't forget to charge for materials, hours per day, time to take photos and uploading,etc. 3- teach another language  If you have a second language then good on you, another skill to write down on your cv! Launch a new website of what you can provide, zoom language classes, work sheets, online courses, etc. Make it clear on what you can pr
