So very glad to have the one and only @calamitychang back gracing the stage at @nursebettienyc after her time away. It's so beautiful seeing #strippersisters step up to support one another when it's needed most, and it was a privilege to be in that room, surrounded by so much love and good energy. You can catch part of this insane line-up and more tonight in the lobby at @hotelchantelle! . Shout-out to the Nesting Doll herself, @karinalibido, for inspiring such a reaction and letting me play living coat rack while she did the damn thing, and thanks to the rad AF @personal_space_show for hanging out and snapping these glorious papparazza pics, immortalizing one of many great moments from an incredible night. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’–โœจ

Leaving Vegas feeling happy and accomplished ๐Ÿ’• I've had THE MOST stressful time Friday night and Saturday morning when my phone battery suddenly died.. FOR GOOD โ˜ ๏ธ and my phone wouldn't turn on when I was in the middle of the desert not knowing any addresses I had to be at ๐Ÿ˜ฑ and not being able to call a car. It was terrible! But I figured it out by walking 30min along the highway to the nearest store and buying the first phone I found๐Ÿ“ฒ (God bless credit cards!!! If this happened before I got one as an immigrant - I would have missed the show!) After all this stress I ended up having a great time at @lvburlesquefestival last night! And today, for contrast, I've finally had THE MOST relaxing day doing nothing but sipping chai and talking to a beloved friend ๐Ÿ“ž๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ’‹โ€๐Ÿ‘ฉTravel always brings me its surprises and challenges and that's why I love it so much. Also, I love Las Vegas and it won't be long until I'm back.

Every time someone asks me โ€œMona why are you still dancing if you have a business now ?โ€ I realize they donโ€™t understand how hard it is to run a business especially financially in the beginning stages... Hell I didnโ€™t know until I took that leap and actually believed in myself to continue going even when things was falling apart around me... I have earned every single one of my blessings through hard work and passion. And I continue to pour everything in me to make it successful, I love what I do and the impact I make for the women I cross paths with daily... They keep me strong, driven and damn Iโ€™m a very blessed woman ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ Ladies keep grinding, believe in yourself and donโ€™t listen to the hate, wear it like a robe you know you can replace in the morning ๐Ÿ’ฅ GN ๐Ÿ˜˜ Blessings & Love, Mona Marie #MonaMarie #entertainerturnedentrepreneur #NYCShowgirl #Headliner #Feature #GoalHustler

Today I've had my #AmericanDream moment ๐Ÿ’— My heart was pounding coming back to the ship, 6 years after I swore that I'd never do it again ๐Ÿ™ˆ Back then I was just another Ukrainian girl, lucky to have a job that I didn't necessarily like. In my 4 years on ships I went from scraping food waste to taking formal portraits and both roles were very very hard. Like everyone else on the ship, I would do 6-8 months contracts without a single day off, often working 16-hour days. I remember back then looking at guest performers who would come to the ship to do a show for one night or one week and think "These people are SO LUCKY. I wish I could do what they do". Needless to say, coming back to the ship as a guest performer this afternoon meant the whole world to me. This was totally unplanned - mainly, because I couldn't even imagine things turn out this way. I'm feeling so much right now that could write a book just about all realizations I've had today. I feel like my life has come a full circle ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ›ณ๏ธ๐Ÿ™ Thank you @svetlanajazz and #TheDelanceyFive for making another dream of mine come true and a deep bow to every person out there working hard on all the ships sailing around. I see you and I applaud you ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒŠ #fullcircle #immigrantstruggle #cometomycabina #shiplife #princesscruises #travelingshowgirl #CaravanFanDance

Regrann from @showgirlhistory - Meet Faith Bacon, the tragic inventor of the fan dance. She debuted it in Earl Carroll's Vanities in 1928, a New York City show. She created the fan dance to get around nudity laws which required dancers to be covered when moving. When Faith found out that Sally Rand was performing a fan dance in the 1933 Chicago's World Fair, she promptly sued her for infringement. Later, Faith was badly cut on both legs during a show and sued that producer for damages. She sued many people over the years. Scarred, with chronic leg pain that made dancing difficult, and a reputation for being difficult because of her lawsuits, Faith had difficulty getting work after that. She tried to start a dancing school, but that failed so she attempted suicide by taking pills, possibly not her first attempt. She finally succeeded a few years later when she jumped out of her hotel window. She was only 46. #faithbacon #fandance #featherfan #featherfandance #fandancer #ziegfeldfollies #suicide #tragic #showgirl #nycshowgirl #sallyrand - #regrann

The hardest part is definitely over: 5 shows down, 3 more to go ๐Ÿ’ƒ this past Wednesday I had a show in LA followed by one in Venice and on Thursday (yesterday) I had 2 shows in Oakland back to back with very little sleep and a lot of traveling (including a whole flight) in between. I made it!!! ๐Ÿ’ช I was SO exhausted that let myself sleep all day today in my lovely Airbnb and enjoy coffee on the terrace ๐Ÿ–๏ธ The best advice @gorgeousboylesque gave me before going on a busy tour was to take all the time in the mornings to quietly enjoy good coffee โ˜• Thank you, Gorgeous, and everyone who's been following me, accompanying me and booking me on this wonderful trip ๐Ÿ”๏ธ๐Ÿž๏ธ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ #BirthdayTour #LibidoOnTour #CaliforniaBurlesque #CAburlesque #LAburlesque #OaklandBurlesque #SanFranciscoBurlesque #SFburlesque #californiatour #californication #travelingshowgirl

Here I just turned 12 and had my first headshots taken for the modeling agency in Ukraine where I was awarded a year-long contract. Didn't get any real work because I was too mature for kids/teen fashion (was 5'9" tall already) but not yet an adult: "I'm not a girl not yet a woman" story of my life ๐Ÿคท A photographer who worked with me that day took dozens of photos and then played a "Oh I forgot to put a film in the camera" card. I was SO MAD ๐Ÿ‘ฟ So I punished him with my #restingbitchface till the end of the shoot ๐Ÿ˜ Photographers, never do that, it's just stupid. He tried to get me "warmed up" this way and probably save some film but instead he just got me pissed off and I made sure to ruin his day with my 'tude (I was really good at that) ๐Ÿ˜ˆ Soon after that I quit my violin school, started smoking, took on a psychodelic lifestyle, dyed my hair green/blue/red and got a nickname "ะ‘ั€ะธั‚ะฒะฐ" which means "Razor" in Russian ๐Ÿคฆ It's really hard to explain why (will be lost in translation) but it became my real name for over a decade. There were songs and poems dedicated to this Razor persona, now I realize it was the first character I embraced โค๏ธ My old friends still call me Britva โค๏ธ P.S. I never smiled until grew older and started working for the USA (mostly, because I didn't have to) ๐Ÿ˜ณ #oldheadshotday #oldheadshot #babykarina #razorgirl #BRITVA #ะ‘ะ ะ˜ะขะ’ะ #memories
