V-fingers! Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of social media talks and panels (mainly about fashion blogging, travel, and video). Let’s flash-back to NYC, where I spoke at Mediabistro’s Social Curation Summit.

Brookyln’s NU Hotel staff insisted on doing an impromptu photoshoot in the lobby.

The date on my badge is wrong (should be July 31) but the title is right: Mistress.

I took part in the “Artists on the Verge” panel. I gave advice on how to use social media and blogging to build an entertainment career.

Thanks to everyone who attended; it was fun to chat with you at the wine reception.

That evening, I met CamdenLock Clothing designer Tomomi at South Street Seaport for the Dances of Vice burlesque cruise.

In a cruel twist of fate, we Pirates were unable to find the boarding area. We ran around, searching in vain.

Finally, we found the boat… sailing away. Missed it by minutes!

What to do? Pose for photos on the pier.

The 24-hour cafe is famous for its Buddha-Elvis kitsch decor.

The Rococo-zebra prints and chocolate cake suited me quite well.

    My partner and I drove to Oxford (in the UK), to go to a renaissance choral music concert (I’m a nerdy Goth :P) back when we were first dating, and the car broke down, so we missed the start of the concert. The concert was held in this beautiful original (medieval) Gothic chapel. It was cold and dark out, but the light coming out through the stained glass windows was BEAUTIFUL and we could still hear the choir from outside, so we stood outside the chapel, on the pavement of the street (sidewalk, to Americans), listening to the choir sing and cuddling each other to stay warm. I was wearing a long skirt, corset and shrug, so got quite cold. Eventually I got too cold, and we went to find somewhere warm, and ended up wandering into the Chequers historical pub, which is very medieval and Gothic inside!

    I often get worked up over things not going according to plan. However, there was one time that ended up being a lot of fun. I was supposed to go to my first steampunk meet-up with my brother and our two friends. We were late and didn’t know that the meet-up had moved due to the venue being too loud. After wandering around downtown for a bit, we wound up going to a gourmet cupcake shop and a Turkish restaurant (where my brother got props for his silver glasses).

      That sounds great! Sometimes, the most fun and inspiring incidents come from nowhere.
