The REAL TeaseMaid since 2011! Take a peep at my blog: a sweet and sexy cocktail of Tea and Tease, a cupcake and cream-tea blog with a burlesque twist. Let's face it, afternoon tea is the most fun you can have with your clothes on! So read on for some tasty tit-bits that you're not gonna get from the 'old dears' at The Tea Guild.... ;-) If you fancy coming along to my monthly Clandestine Cake Club, see the link below. And don't forget to check out the date of my next 'Avon' retro cosmetic party "Cake It On".... Love from The TeaseMaid xox

The Hurly Burly Girlys are hot....

I don't know where to start with this - the show was absolutely amazing! 
I can't give away too much about the acts themselves but the whole thing was a masterpiece - funny, sexy, intelligent and cheeky. And the girls are talented and athletic, with bodies to die for, but two in particular stood out for me (apart from Polly Rae herself.)
Anything that pays homage to the French Revolution with Lady gaga, Marilyn Monroe and a glittery guillotine is alright by me! And big band versions of some favourite 80's tracks and mashed up medleys gave the whole performance a Baz Luhrmann feel.
During the audience participation, I think the scared bloke they dragged on stage was relieved to see them move the guillotine first, but the terror returned when he saw the horses saddle....!
Somehow the performances managed to amalgamate various epochs in history, all genres of music and classic tease, as well as modern rock-inspired naughtiness, all seamlessly from start to finish.
Unfortunately the show ends tomorrow, but I highly recommend you keep your eye out if it returns to another theatre and go and see it!
PS - sometimes with things like this they let you in free if you dress the part, right? But don't turn up wearing only nipple pasties and a vajazzle. 

They, er...they don't let you do that I've realised..... ;-)

Until next time...

Something naughty to start with....

As this page is a kitsch amalgamation of tea AND tease, tomorrow I'm heading to a burlesque show: The Hurly Burly Show at the Garrick Theatre. 
This is partly because London is too full of tourists 'taking tea' at the moment due to the Royal Wedding for me to book places anywhere, and partly because this show ends on May 1st, so I just managed to squeeze it in! So, something very tasty to start the reviews off with....read tomorrow to find out how it was...

Welcome to my blog

This blog was partly inspired by the book 'Kinky Cupcakes' by Joanna Farrow, and partly inspired by the fact that I love to sit around drinking tea, eating cakes and chatting with my friends. Afternoon Tea is growing in popularity and is, let's face it, the most fun you can have with your clothes on! So follow my blog and I will be reviewing as many of the different afternoon teas as possible in London, and throwing in some tantalising, tasty treats....

Until next time
