Meet Pandora Whiskey!
As part of our Feminine Sensual Fridays, I will be dedicating one Friday each month to one of the beautiful, sensational, vibrant women in our program. As part of our journey we each select an alter ego, a Burlesque name, to inspire the changes we wish to unleash in our lives. Today you meet ….Pandora Whiskey!
Who Is Pandora Whiskey?
Pandora Whiskey is a vivacious, 24 year old woman who is currently studying at Algonquin College to become a Developmental Service Worker. By grade 11, she had achieved a doctorate reading level. She has a penchant for remembering what she refers to as ‘useless information’…Greek Mythology anyone? In my opinion, quite an admirable talent!
During her interview, I asked Pandora Whiskey to identify something she’s always wanted to do but has been held back by fear. Her answer: “truthfully I want kids but am always afraid that I’ll never feel like I’m adult enough to have them. I take care of people on a daily basis but when it would come to my own I’d be very scared to screw up.” I think any mom out there has felt exactly the same way at one time or another! In the meantime she is an adoring “mom” to her pet dogs!
When asked what she loves best about her life, Pandora Whiskey expressed her love of having a great supportive network to surround her. A real blessing!
An Interesting Twist
The day before she met her fiance, she applied to join a convent. She gave herself 48 hours for the universe to deliver her a sign that could potentially change her mind. Voila…the man of her dreams appeared. And life as a nun is history.
Unleashing In Progress…
As part of the Transformational Burlesque program, the women identify qualities within themselves that they wish to unleash in order to live a more vibrant, fulfilling life! Pandora Whiskey is working on improving self-confidence, bravery, self-esteem, happiness and bad ass-ness! Since joining the program in September of this year, she is now able to lovingly look at herself in the mirror. Whereas, prior to the class, she would avoid the mirror. True progress…just look at those eyes!
Oh la la …the Sensual Side
In addition to unleashing characteristics such as self-confidence and bravery, the women are also working on opening up their sensual sides. Over time, women can cover their femininity with protective layers until its hidden deep within…being a mom, a career woman, an athlete, a negative life event or demands on our time can take a toll pushing some of our softer elements to the back burner. So, we asked Pandora Whiskey about a few things she enjoys that ellicit a softer, sensual feeling.
- The colour black makes Pandora Whiskey feel sensual and she enjoys the dramatic pop of colour against black!
- Lemons, which she loves and even eats stand alone, make her sensual taste buds tingle!
- The comforting sensation of flannel is her favourite fabric to feel next to her skin.
- The smell of lemongrass (which she can’t explain) is a fragrance that makes her melt!
- I imagine an evening topped off with one of her favourite songs – the instrumental Phantom of the Opera by Lindsey Stirling or Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen – would be the icing on the cake for Miss Pandora Whiskey!
