Interview with Miss Bettie B Goode

In 2015 Bettie came runner up in the Pinup Doll Victoria competition that was held as part of the Ballarat Beat Pinup competition. From there she went on to win the title of Pinup Doll Australia and has lead to her next adventure competing in the Miss Pinup International competition that takes place tomorrow in London! This little pocket rocket travelled all the way from Bendigo to London to compete and our thoughts and hearts are with her. I was very excited to be able to interview her about how she got into Pinup and performing before she headed overseas to wow international audiences. And to be able to share with you some photos from her recent shoot with Rebecca Gray - wow!

Camperdown Cruise 2015 – with a little help from my friends!

I have a confession to make... I have serious FOMO (fear of missing out). It can be all-consuming and anxiety-inducing. My dog has it too, although I like to think I manage mine better than he does 😉 The fact that my calendar seems to be quiet for a while and then have 3 things on the same time that I want to go to, like last weekend certainly doesn't help! I hear this phenomenon isn't exclusive to the chronically ill but sometimes I do think the calendar Gods are against me! Then the added element of having to miss out and cancel on a lot of things due to fatigue or not being able to get there and back under my own steam really doesn't help the situation.
