June 22, 2018

Winner of Toronto's Strip Search 2010, Trixi Jones, based out of Toronto, Canada is an award winning Pin Up Model, Burlesque Performer, Stylist, & Makeup Artist.

She's fiery, saucy and captivating! She's a fighter, a lover and a firecracker but don't get it or her twisted because warriors don't play. 

If you don't you know!


Miss Trixi Jones


I’m a hobbyist. I have oh so many hobbies I do as jobs; ballroom dance, burlesque, makeup artist, stylist, bartender at a salsa nightclub and I own a wee company called ‘Wolf Crown & Alchemy’


In my mid 20’s I...

I used to workout a lot. I was a dancer and model, so being in shape was a big deal. I enjoyed it thoroughly and reaped the rewards of my hard work when I starting seeing real and positive results. I was toned and looking great! From the moment I started to see results, I was hooked. But, I wasn't so much hooked on the act of going to the gym everyday, but I was, hooked on the results of my efforts. It was a powerful pill and was what motivated me to continue, even when I wasn't in the workout mood.

I think motivation is an underrated and overlooked catalyst for most o...

"I feel more myself when I’m in flow in whatever art form I’m involved in at the moment. I feel open, and naked, and free, and often, yes... bathed in light. Nothing feels more beautiful."

I AM THANKFUL! Thankful to all creative warriors who, throughout all, commit their time and intelligence to aspects of life that are so definitively beneficial to the substance of humanity and it's needs.

Unique, eclectic and uberifically creative, is how I describe Ekow’s Flow. 

I became interested in Ekow and his art because it touches a part of a human experience we have all shared and still luv today. LEGO, a household playtime activity, was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, a Danish carpenter. LEGO, literally means ‘play well’…and we did.  LEGO has maintained its dominance and world wide appeal for nearly 80 years and there i...

My third showing took place with my new friends in the POP UP SHOP world, Sofi & Jason of Great Spirits Designs. Hosted in Kensington Market and in front of the popular KOS Restaurant, a handful of creative artists took their place. The sun is shining and everyone's spirits is encouraging. Mind you, it's the May 24 weekend and I'm a bit curious as to how that will effect the number of visitors. Either way. I'm looking forward to the weekend. Participating in the open markets is a great way to gain lots of knowledge about vending resources, show & events and everyone I...

Ask anyone what their top 5 is for enhancing sensibilities and positive interaction with others on a daily basis and you will undoubtedly find different variations. It's a matter of personal virtue, a code that only you hold sacred. But how you desire to be treated and preserved is how you should reciprocate in kind. This is what I call the balance of interaction. 

Friendships may come and go, relationships start and finish, careers begin and end but in all of life's ups and downs we must always try to learn...

Talking Knee Syndrome
Remember when we used to mock the 80's?

It was declared, and I think, in writing, the worst decade ever for style and fashion. From the teased out to the high waisted, it was proclaimed clearly as the decade we would never repeat. We hid our embarrassment with jokes and laughter about how we used to dress and now.....

Now, it's back...yeeeeaaaaaaaaahhh (she said sarcastically) ...and our deviant thoughts about 80's fashion, has all been forgotten and set on a new path. Did we all come down with amnesia? Perhaps we were jus...
