Happy Easter everyone! I was meant to be going away for the day today, I’d blocked out a trip to the beach with my Auntie and Uncle because I felt like it was important to share some time with them and be with family on Easter day. Unfortunately, I felt atrocious when I woke up this morning and I am still not feeling great, so instead of spending 5 hours driving I have spent most of the day sleeping. I did find sometime to take a walk from my house and take some springtime photos. In the spirit of Easter […]

Happy Easter

About a month ago I was nominated for a Liebster award by Aimee at  inkylady79’s blog, and as part of accepting the nomination I have to nominate more bloggers and ask them a series of questions. The answers to the questions that Aimee posed for me are in my I got Nominated for a Liebster Award blog so check them out because they were a thought provoking set of questions. I have finally got around to posting some of my own. So, the “Liebster Award is a chain award created by bloggers and passed on from one blogger to another to encourage […]

Liebster award follow up

Last night was the first public showing of Investigation, a film that I star in, and I took the opportunity to give me the impetus I needed to update my showreel. So for your viewing pleasure, here is my new showreel. Be warned, the language in it is explicit from the offset so if you are sensitive to such things watch it with the sound down!

My new showreel

It was my birthday this week and  I use my birthday as a day to look back and see what I have accomplished over the year and take a deep breath before stepping into the next set of challenges hopefully getting older and wiser whilst I pass the anniversary of my birth. The past year has definitely been the best year of my life in many ways, I have found certain things pretty stressful but I do feel like I am getting more and more comfortable in my skin and working hard to make my life one that serves me and helps me […]

Another year older

Next month my brother in law, Jon, is running the London Marathon, he is not one of these crazy people who goes around running loads of marathon, but he has worked tirelessly, training and getting fitter so he can reach his goal to run the marathon in order to help a cause that is important to him, Penny Brohn Cancer Care. I think that is pretty awesome and deserves celebrating. Please, please, please give any donation that you can afford on his just giving page, you know it will make you feel a little bit good about yourself, it will […]

I got nominated for a Liebster Award

Earlier today a friend of mine challenged me to give up sweets for a week. Always one to step up to a challenge, I have surrendered to the task and decided to keep away from the haribo, bon bons, fruit pastilles, fried eggs, sour cherries, jelly babies, dolly mixture, hard gums……oh my mouth is watering! Now, I’m not quite sure what the rules are for this challenge so I guess that I should lay down the guidelines for myself: 1. No pick-n-mix even the chocolate ones; 2. Obviously no gummy, boiled, liquorice or sherbet sweets; 3. Chocolate or cakes not allowed – I don’t tend […]

Sweet surrender

Happy International Women's Day from Becky Sage
I have so much to say on this subject, but one thing about women is that we are not one thing. The women who I admire most are those who are open and honest about who they are in all their beautiful contradictions: I am sensitive I am thoughtful I am proud I am strong I am flexible I am hardworking I am relentlessly trying to be a better person I am empathetic I am energetic I am high-pitched I am petite I am aware of what you want from me I am aware of what you need I am […]

Happy International Women’s Day

A photo posted by becky (@faerietwink) on Mar 7, 2015 at 5:26am PST   In January and February I spent a period of time when I blogged everyday as part of “Come Blog With Me”. However, since the challenge stopped I have struggled to write and post, in fact I have struggled to even decide whether or not to write. This says a lot about me as a person, when I have someone watching me or some kind of validation to say “you should do that” then I just get my head down and get on with things, I don’t […]

Why do I need to write?

In the past two weeks I have been part of an amazing group of women in Dollypop, debuting our show Strip and taking it on tour, which continues in Bristol in two weeks. In all honestly I have managed this in a haze of jet lag and illness and whilst being at a pressure point on my Nano Simbox project. Here is my behind the scene photo diary from our show at the Hen and Chicken in Islington, London, which took place on Monday 23rd Feb 2015.     It takes a little while to get used to working in new spaces….. […]

Dollypop Theatre on tour

So this blog was going to be about how rubbish I am at being ill, but Lottie Lane got there first and posted a similar blog yesterday, so instead this is a how to guide, for myself, and anyone else who is trying to get through these horrible winter illnesses. I will describe some of the annoying behaviours I show when I am ill and how I might try to do it better next time. Bloody hell, I’m such a perfectionist I even have to plan how to be ill better! Right now I seem to be suffering with the […]

How to get through a virus….

I’ve had a few days off blogging, mostly because the time has just disappeared. I returned from Dubai on Monday morning and went straight into a day of rehearsal followed by a day working on the Nano-Simbox and then straight into the opening night of STRIP. Somewhere in that time I also tried to fend off a cold and catch up on some missed sleep! I have never felt so nervous as I did before performing last night. I am very lucky not to really suffer with stage fright but I was harbouring a lot of butterflies in my tummy […]
