From the very first moment my incredible friend, the one and only Gilded Lily of Burlesque, Chapelle, stepped on stage, I knew the world would never be the same.. And that was through a computer screen! With both of us being the world traveling, badass babes that we are, I had never actually seen Chapelle perform in person... Until last weekend! I finally got to see my overwhelmingly incredible, sensual, hypnotic, and mesmerizing friend Chapelle perform her signature piece, "Red Hot & Classic," as a special guest performer with The Midtown Moxies Burlesque troupe. In case you missed it (follow me on Instagram,, stoopid!) this is what happens when you let JNT backstage...
Like they say, A little Jin N Tonic makes everything better! Well.. I say that at least.. And it's true! Every performer of the night was incredible, and thank you to each sassy lady that let me include you in my youtube bullshit. Not to mention all my drunken selfies. (Soooo many selfies!) You are all inspiring as fuck, and the final number of the night, the audio of which makes up the behind the scenes video above, had me laughing and crying with the awesomeness of it (thank you, Persephone!!).
Last night was, like many nights in my life, full of drankin', dancin', and hot bitches. Plus a sexy ass fire charmer or two.
I had a blast the last time I joined Swoon Entertainment and it's head, the Prince of Fetish, Sir Perish Dignam, at a certain 420 Bunny Ball that some of you may remember...
Hello JNT! A Post-Travel Update and the Hello Kitty! exhibit Opening (Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles)
Hoooollleeeeey fuck, have I been busy! And it's been a total blast! After a few weeks of traveling (and of course shooting), I'm back in my HQ in LA and have been busy doing Awesome every day! It's taken me a week but I finally have a new #JNT video update to share, with lots of sneak peak photos from my travels and a look at my crazy-amazing first week back!
I also have TONS of photos I want to share from my recent Friday night as Jordan Bunniie's 'plus one' to the VIP opening of the Hello Kitty exhibit opening at the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) in the Little Tokyo area of downtown. LA.
Since officially moving to LA back in November, I've had the absolute privilege of teaming up with Girls & Corpses Magazine on several occasions...
Since meeting the creator and 'Deaditor'-in-chief of G&C, Robert "Corpsy" Rhine, he has brought me along on many, many adventures here in LA. This last Saturday another one of those adventures! For those following me on Instagram & Twitter (do eeeeet!!) you'll remember my last-minute, "WHAT TO WEAR??" dilemma before hitting the red carpet at The W Hotel in Hollywood for the 48 Hour Film Project after party!
Did JNT really go to the red carpet, 48 Hour Film Project after party at the luxurious W Hotel in Hollywood, CA wearing lingerie and drinking tequila (and pink wine) out of a McDonald's cup...?
Sometimes, when life has become overwhelming and stressful for a few weeks too many (I'm blaming the crazy moon, on top of my equally crazy schedule), you just need to dress up like a Bunny Princess and go get the fuck drunk, ya know?
Luckily, I actually had an amazing reason to do just that! Introducing an appropriately badass #JNT blog post in celebration of one very special, Art-driven, Booty Shakin', Free Hot Dog-fueled, Dr. Sketchy's event in Hollywood, CA!
Jin N Tonic Doesn't Go 'Back to School' - My September JNT Shoot with Radiance Photographics and Mustache Rides & Chopper Shop! (Eugene, OR)
While I was figuring out my theme for my September JNT Monthly Photoshoot, the idea of 'Back to School' was brought up a few times...
Introducing my September 2013 JNT Print of the Month!
I was very excited to team up with Radiance Photographics, Hair by Rachel Teran, and Mustache Rides & Chopper Shop to make this truly badass shoot happen!!
More Badassery with Robert Bejil Photography and Special Guest, Male Model/Actor/Badass *Joshua Keith Mathews* (Bakersfield, CA)
So I think by now, we're all aware of how serious I take my modeling career. I mean, I'm talking, super cereal kind of serious. This is probably the reason why photographer Robert Bejil invited me in front of his lens for a second shoot. Like true pro's, we like to do it big, and our one shoot was more like three. Plus it was the perfect opportunity to wrangle in male model/actor/badass Joshua Keith Mathews for some steamy photos. But first, a little behind the scenes video by yours truly...

August! The hottest month of summer. The month of road trips, camp outs, and BBQs before September and all the responsibilities that fall brings. What could be more fitting then, for my Monthly JNT Photoshoot, than a LATEX photoshoot??
I was so excited to team up with Drew Driskell Photography and Twila Jean Vintage to make this shoot happen!! Click below to see the amazing photos, and to check out my August 2013 JNT Print of the Month!!!
I first got the idea for my July JNT "Lady Liberty" shoot while participating as a hair model for the Wella Trend Vision contest (post on that soon to come!). I saw how easily I could get my hair to liberty spike and immediately envisioned Punk Rock Lad Liberty. I really wanted to push the concept though, and spent many hours discussing with photographer/bodypainter Todd Powers and his wife artist/wardrobist Jen Raven regarding just what message I wanted to convey, and how to properly convey it. Thus, Lady Liberty, Bound & Gagged was also created.
This is the first time I've really pushed my art into the realm of 'political statement,' and I'm so excited with how everything has turned out.. But I am even more excited to see the world's reaction to this shoot!
How fitting that I was in Bakersfield, a dry, dusty desert area known for it's sweltering summers, for my June photo shoot. The theme of this one?
You heard the gal, there's fire involved!
