Autumn Nights

Well Sweetpeas, summer has come, and gone… Like a lover in the night, it has abandoned us to the sweet mercies of the cold hard truth of ever colder (and darker) mornings. We managed to get one last fling in before the seasons turned and Priscilla’s organised one of our midweek outings on 28 March.

We decided to impose ourselves on the good people at Trouble Bar. We have been somewhat remiss and have not been to the ‘new’ Trouble venue since they moved there almost two years ago. This was simply due to us being busy doing other things. As always, we were treated fantastically by Hilton and his staff were all professional and courteous in the extreme.

The evening started early for us. I raced home from a lunch time business meeting and started getting myself presentable. Irene was already hard at work as she had two makeovers to do. I did my usual beauty routine and chose an outfit and got myself ready. In the meantime, our friend Suzie arrived from work to get ready.

We were particularly pleased to have a visitor from Spain stay with us. She was in Johannesburg on business and had decided to extend her stay to include a little ‘personal’ time. She had visited us nearly two years ago and it was fantastic to renew the acquaintance.

Having completed everyone’s makeup Irene came in and started to get ready herself… She very kindly found a few spare minutes to ‘touch up’ my makeup and fix my most glaring errors. While she was getting ready Susanna, Suzie and I sat and chatted over a drink. Unfortunately, Liza could not join us as she was not yet ready and she needed to pick up a friend on the way to Trouble…

Then as always, a problem arose (come on, you know it wouldn’t be an undercover tgirl outing without some or other near disaster befalling us) … My reprobate dog sneaks out of the property any opportunity he has and goes and visits our elderly neighbour where he is thoroughly spoiled. Getting treats, being allowed to sleep with her in her bed etc. He had snuck out and been with her sometime. She phoned to ask us if we wanted him back. Erm… What to do? I was in full en femme mode and whilst I don’t mind what she thinks of me, I also do not want to give her a heart attack! Fortunately, Irene was by now ready and she performed operation dog rescue on my behalf!

There was time for a few quick photos and then we headed on to Trouble.

Nicci and Michelle were already at Trouble when we arrived. It was wonderful to see Hilton again after such a long time and it was nice to catch up with Nicci and Michelle too. Soon we were joined by Jenny as well. I was starting to get a little worried about Liza as I thought she should have arrived not long after us. She arrived a little while later, slightly flustered. She had been pulled over by the police on the way to us after picking up Stef… This is always a stressful occurrence. If your drivers’ licence does not match your presentation it leads to awkward questions and you can never be sure that the police won’t get ‘difficult’. I have personally never had a problem with the police (I have been pulled over twice) but I have heard of people who have been harassed by some police officers. Fortunately, Liza was ok and the police were not too problematic.
A lovely evening ensued and the food and drink flowed freely. I was impressed with my food. It was reasonably priced (I had one of the ‘specials’) and plentiful. It was also rather tasty! The pink drink I had was divine… I LOVE pink drinks.
Just as we had finished eating, Carla and Petrus arrived. It was Carla’s birthday that day and I was surprised but very happy to see her as I had not seen her for some time. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARLA! Many selfies and photos were taken. Old acquaintances were renewed and some new connections forged. Everyone seemed to have a good time and we all enjoyed ourselves.

 

Then, a funny thing happened. I needed the toilet and managed to walk into the men’s facility by mistake! Fortunately, I was the only person using it at the time. This has been something of a recurring problem for me of late… A few weeks ago, I was at Rosebank Mall in male mode and I walked into the women’s toilets by mistake… Then at a school function a few days later (again in male mode) I NEARLY walked in to the women’s toilets… Clearly, I need to pay more attention to the way I am dressed and DOUBLE check signage before entering these facilities.
A big thank you to everyone who came out midweek to share in an evening of fun and friendship. I hope you all had as much fun as I think you did. As always thanks to Hilton for hosting us. We need to try and do these a little more frequently in future. Hopefully we can think of a FUN weekend activity in the near future… All ideas welcome!

We Are Growing

Due to an ever increasing demand for our services, we have had to expand. Happily an existing space on pour property has become available and we are pleased to inform you that we in addition to the Priscilla’s Studio experience, we will soon be able to offer the Priscilla’s Suite experience.

Priscilla’s Suite will be a larger space for you to use if so desired. It will consist of an open plan living room and full kitchen area. The living room will have a television, sleeper couches and other creature comforts. The kitchen will be fully equipped with a stove, microwave, fridge, kettle coffee machine etc and this will give you many more options than we can currently offer you.
There will of course be a bedroom as well as a full bathroom.

The suite will offer plenty of space for you to use in any way you wish, and it will also accommodate more overnight guests than we can currently manage.

We are in the middle of renovating the space to ensure that it meets the same standards as you have come to expect from Priscilla’s Services.

We hope to have the space completed by the end of May and look forward to welcoming many more of you to make use of our extensive range of services, that have all been designed with you in mind.

In the meantime, Priscilla’s Studio remains fully operational and is unaffected by the renovations, so why not book a makeover, a transformation package or even a night or two with us and let all your dreams come true?

Don’t forget our May Madness Sale on accommodation. Book FOUR nights at the studio and you only pay for three! Feel free to contact us for more details, or to avoid disappointment simply book today!

Carol Vamps It Up

We were privileged to make a new friend last weekend. Carol was visiting South Africa on business and at the last minute decided to spend a night at Priscilla’s Services.

Despite a rather late arrival time (Ma Winnie’s funeral was playing havoc with the airlines), we managed to get Carol transformed, made-up and looking ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS before heading out to the ever welcoming Amuse for a drink or two.

Unluckily for us we arrived after the band had finished their gig. Luckily for us one of the musos was trying to drive up his bar tab so we each got a free drink. Dirck was his usual friendly self and made us both feel very welcome. As it was a little quiet we came home and Carol was happy to spend a night in comfort in our well appointed studio before departing all too soon for home.

A fun night was had and we were just happy to be of service to a traveler looking for a fun and safe night out en femme! If you are ever in town, why not look us up it is amazing what we can do on short notice… Having more time is ALWAYS better though!

PS: are those shoes not to die for! She brought them with her and she was lucky to leave with them!!! <Joke>

It is time to get out and about en femme again.
We are going to PARTY. Our next fabulosa Priscilla’s Services evening will be on Tuesday 27 February and we will once again be hosted by Dirck and his amazing team at Amuse Cafe in Linden.

More details will follow shortly.

If you need your makeup done, a place to dress, accommodation or even some shopping done please book early to avoid disappointment.

Here are some photographs from our last few trips to Amuse in December 2017 (before, during and after pics)…

 

Happy Clients Make Us Happy

We were recently  privileged to host Liza in our studio. Liza is an out of town girl who sometimes travels to Johannesburg on  business. She likes to take advantage of the time in a different city to get out and about en femme as much as possible. She has all her own clothes and is an accomplished applier of her own makeup. She really only needs a friendly place to sleep where if she is spotted she will not feel judged or unsafe. She has therefore only ever used us for accommodation in the past as she has little need of our other crossdressing services.

She was visiting us last week and we were, as ever, very happy to host her. She mentioned that now that she is a more mature lady it was taking her longer to get ready as she has to work harder on her makeup. I reminded her that Irene was on site and would be happy to assist.

As her schedule was tight she said she would give it a go as at the very least getting the makeup done would reduce her time taken to get ready thus allowing more time for fun. Irene obliged and we were very happy to see just how good Liza looked and more importantly how happy Liza was with the result.

I would say Irene took 15 to 20 years off her and in half the time it would take Liza to apply the makeup on her own. She looks really feminine and happy.

Liza said : ‘Irene of Pricilla’s Services in Jhb worked this magic with her amazing make over! She turned an aging trannie into an attractive woman with the brush work of an angel Thank you sooooooo much!!!!’

We always feel so privileged when we have helped one of our clients to feel like the beautiful woman that we always knew was hidden away inside. Look forward to seeing you again soon Liza, hopefully we  can synchronise diaries better so that we can join you for some time out and about next time.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert: Time is Running Out
