‘Georgia? You mean in America?’ This was the reaction of most of our nearest and dearest when we told them where our latest IT Girl event was being held.
‘No’ we replied, ‘Georgia, you know, as in the country of Georgia.’
I have to admit that I for one had to check out where this wonderful little gem of a country is on our wonderful planet.
So after some wikipedia enlightenment, I discovered that Georgia is located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe. It is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan.
(Just a little geography info for you all to digest)
Georgia, we discovered is a peaceful & safe country that is definitely set to rise up as a cosmopolitan city over the years to come. Big Global brands are already based there and trading very successfully and we witnessed a society ready to get chic!
‘But where were you performing in this beautiful country?’ you ask. Well, in no lesser venue than the fabulous 5 star Hilton hotel of course! All thanks to the lovely people at Authentic Gaming. For the evening, the lovely IT ladies were lucky charms for the online members of this very popular up and coming online gambling company.
To make the evening even more special, our sparkling show was not only enjoyed by the guests of the Casino International within the Hilton Hotel in Batumi, but also by all the exclusive online members across Europe as the show was filmed and streamed live.
This was the perfect example of how live entertainment is adapting to the digital age and the concept worked a treat!
So to celebrate (and being in the country where the original wine grape came from) we treated ourselves to a glass or two of Georgia’s finest wine. #delicious. A lovely way to end a perfect evening!
A few days prior to our trip to Georgia, we headed North but not quite so far this time to perform at the Scottish Bar & Pub Awards in Glasgow at The Hilton Hotel – well if it’s good enough for IT Girl Miss Paris Hilton then it’s good enough for us!
Oh…. it was like home from home and we can wholeheartedly say that the folks in Glasgow are some of the friendliest people we’ve ever met. Sometimes we really are too lucky!
Our trip to Bonnie Scotland wasn’t without its fair share of drama though. As with so many trips in the past, there was a liberal sprinkling of ‘No, it can’t be!’ and ‘What’s the backup plan?’ from us Itties as our trip did not go entirely according to plan.
‘Why? What happened?’ I hear you cry …
Well, somehow BA managed to lose all our feathered fans in the short flight from Heathrow to Glasgow…and the waitressing costumes. Once again however, the Goddess of Cabaret came to our rescue and performed a little miracle and the lost items all arrived in the nick of time. Phew! Panic over.
‘Sorry, did I just read ‘waitressing costumes?’
Yes you read it correctly and no we haven’t started twilighting as waitresses. We had it fact been hired to do our cheeky little ‘waitress reveal’ number which would have been challenging and not at all effective without costumes to fit the bill.
Allow me to elaborate….. the gorgeous girls are disguised as waitresses before the actual show begins. They mingle, they serve drinks and then lo and behold, just when you’ve helped yourself to another glass of bubbly from a tray held aloft by a particularly stunning young waitress…
….at a given and carefully timed moment, CRASH!!! Miss Tamsin drops a tray of silver cutlery, apologises profusely for her clumsiness which has interrupted the public speaker who was addressing the entire room of 500 guests and then before the audience can say ‘Well tickle me with a feather boa!’, she and the other IT Girls burst out of their waitressing outfits to reveal the sparkling showgirls that they really are! And then they seamlessly perform a perfect, award opening, showstopper of a number! Such fun!
Miss Tamsin was undoubtedly the star of the evening as she not only gave a stunning vocal performance but she also hosted the entire awards! A consummate professional as always. We can safely say and with just a modicum of modesty, that a wonderful evening was had by all and we were so happy to be there, just adding that extra special pinch of bespoke sparkle to ensure the entire event was a resounding and glittering success. And so we thank Media world, Authentic Gaming & Scarlett Entertainment for these wonderful events and for the opportunities they afford us Itties to travel and meet new people. We are lucky, lucky ladies.
And of course our thanks to the unforgettable team of georgeousness that performed at both events. The ladies in question were: the aforementioned Miss Tamsin, Miss Fallon, Miss Stacey, Miss Kayleigh ( who also played her role brilliantly as Artist manager and wardrobe mistress extraordinaire) and of course Miss Claire.
Next stop….Barcelona!!! So watch this space for all the gossip from the Goldwell after-party!
See you soon!
