LIFE ON POINTE Episode 4

“Success isn’t defined by those who fought and never fell, but by those who fought, fell, and then rose again.”                                                                                  – Nastia Luikin 

This quote could never have applied to this week more. I fell a lot.

This week was tough, and in all honesty, I didn’t want to dance. I got sick at the beginning of the week and my ankle has been sore since I fell cleaning my car. Stupid Ditch.

Despite all of this, I persevered, and though it wasn’t my best week, I still nailed a lot of my turns, minus the  fouetté. However, I was able to jump higher (of course, my camera died at that point), and turn faster. My legs got higher, and guess what? My placement is getting better.

Sometimes you need to find the positive in the negative, even if it seems like the negative outweighs the positive. Choose to be thankful and choose not to complain.

Next week, I am so incredibly excited. Although my friend calls it death week, I’m stoked. I get to have a private lesson with master teacher Philip Pegler in Los Angeles on Tuesday! I’ll drive home right after and go straight to my next classes at Revolution, and I’ll get to partner, which I’m totally excited for.

Alrighty guys, have a wonderful week! And remember, if you’ve had or are having a rough time right now, you’re not alone. Leave one positive thing in your life right now down in the comment section.

Beauty Favorites | October 2016

Hello Gorgeous People, how are you doing?! Welcome back. Today I’m going to be talking (or rather, writing) you through my October Favorites. On a side note, can we talk about how October is already pretty much gone?! It’s absolutely mental!

Alrighty, let’s get into the favorites!

Okay, let’s first talk about this Pure Cosmetics Nude Collection Eyeshadow Palette. It is absolutely stunning. I watched them on my arm so you could see the colors on my skin and how pigmented they are. I got this in my FabFitFun box I received at the beginning of the month and after many days of testing, I love this palette. It’s got gorgeous shimmery shades that create a perfect everyday or nighttime look. There are twelve colors, and I will say that out of the twelve, there are only three matte shades, which is a little disappointing. Another rather annoying thing was that there was no mirror in the palette. However, the consistency of the shadows were nice and the pigmentation wasn’t insane, but it was still great quality. I’ll rate this palette 7/10.

This nail polish is the Essie Nail Polish: Bahama Mama, and it’s gorgeous. It’s gorgeous for fall, and it’s really easy to wear. I absolutely love the consistency of the nail polish and you only need I’d say two coats for outstanding color show. I’ll rate this 10/10.

LIFE ON POINTE Episode 3

Hey Guys! How’re you doing?

This week, I was literally all by myself. I’m not going to lie, it was amazing. Even though these classes were incredibly long, it was great. I overcame a lot of fears when it came to spinning, since the floor is completely uneven and slippery like ice.

With the help of my most amazing teacher, we worked on getting my legs higher, my turns cleaner, and my jumps higher and more powerful. We still have a long way to go, but I am incredibly happy with how I am looking right now.

Our deadline to finish learning the Advanced II syllabus is just two months away! I am a little bit scared that I won’t learn it all in time, but I have more confidence than fear that I will be okay.

I hope you guys are having a lovely week. I wish you the best as you pursue your dreams. I love you all, and I’ll see you very soon!

LIFE ON POINTE Episode 2

Hey guys! Welcome back to Episode 2 of LIFE ON POINTE!

This week, I didn’t get a ton of footage from all three classes. However, I am working on a dance to RUN & HIDE by Sabrina Carpenter, so I wanted to show you guys the choreography process of this dance.

I get a lot of questions on how I come up with these dances. Normally, the magic happens in my living room. But this week, it started in my dance studio. I hope you enjoy this episode!

FabFitFun Subscription Box Review

Hey Everybody! How’re you doing?

Last week, I placed an order for the Autumn Edition FabFitFun Subscription Box, and I literally just received this last night in the mail! I cannot tell you how excited I was when this came. Before I bought it, I reviewed what was in the box on the website, just to make sure I wouldn’t waste money on stuff I wouldn’t use. For $40, you get over $200 dollars worth of stuff. Even though I’ve pretty much just got this, I’ve used everything already, and let me tell you, it was worth it!

There is nothing negative I could possibly saw about the MODCLOTH. It’s just stunning and it is so incredibly soft. What I love about it is that you can wear it as a scarf in various ways (in the pamphlet, there are several tutorials on how to style the MODCLOTH), or you can lay it out on your bed for an extra cozy touch! It’s pretty thin but is still very warm.

When I saw the CREATED CO. TO-GO COFFEE MUG, I was so excited. In the colder weather, I love drinking teas and coffee and hot chocolate, but often times I can’t bring it with me, leaving me to chug it down as fast as I can before heading to class. Now, I won’t have to! Plus, I love the little inspirational quote, it’s a cute little bonus.

I was very intrigued by the TOESOX TOELESS FITNESS SOCKS when I first saw. They have non-slip soles, which will be perfect for when I am practicing my ballet technique on my wooden flooring.

The rosy scent of the SPONGELLÉ BULGARIAN ROSE BODY WASH INFUSED BUFFER hit my nostrils as soon as I opened the box. I love this little thing so much! I used this this morning in my bath, and I found that it exfoliates and cleanses at the same time. It got all of that dead skin off my legs, which came out completely smooth rather than scaly and peeling. The only thing I’d say about this is that the scent is incredibly strong and gave me a headache last night when I opened the box (a combination of all the scents, that is), so if you are sensitive to strong scents, this may not be for you.

I actually didn’t try out the SKIN LAUNDRY RESTORING NIGHT SERUM, as I have a strict skincare regimen that I am absolutely in love with (stay tuned for a skincare routine coming soon!) Plus, I don’t need to use any anti-aging serums at the present moment. I did, however, give it to my mom to try out, so if she likes it, I’ll update you guys!

I was attracted to the MULLEIN & SPARROW MINI FRENCH LAVENDER BODY OIL by both its beautiful scent and elegant packaging. The box it came in was sleek and simple, and inside was this gorgeous glass bottle with a golden cap. As if this wasn’t appealing enough, I thought the scent of lavender was so lovely. It’s not too strong, and it’s not too subtle. It’s my perfect lavender scent. I used it on my legs after my bath this morning and I loved how the oil gave it a glowing look without looking like I’d slathered a bunch of oil on my body.

I was so elated when I saw this gorgeous PURE COSMETICS NUDE COLLECTION EYESHADOW PALETTE. The colors are absolutely stunning and are so pigmented. I will say that there aren’t a whole lot of matte shades, but I personally like shimmery looks a lot better on me. There are beautiful different golds, some more pink and some more yellow. They also have a couple of silvery colors and a subtle green color that I am so excited to test. It reminds me a lot of the Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette. The brush is so soft and is great quality. The only negative is the mirror. When I received it, I discovered that it was just a scratched up plastic-like sheet. That was rather disappointing, but other than that, awesome product!

The BROWGAL CLEAR WATER-RESISTANT EYEBROW GEL is very nice. It sets those brows in place nicely and they do not move. I will say that the consistency is a little glue-like, but once it dries, you don’t even feel it.

What’s more fun than a coloring book??? The FABFITFUN COLORING BOOK AND COLORED PENCILS are perfect for those moment when you just want to relax and get artsy. I’ve already colored a picture in it… Yes, I’ve put this box to good use!!!

If I were to rate this box, I give it 9/10! 9/10 because everything was nicely wrapped and packaged, I liked pretty much everything in the box, but the palette’s scratched up screen kind of got to me. Other than that, it’s a beautiful box, and I’m so glad I got it!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post! Keep a lookout for LIFE ON POINTE episode 2 on Sunday!!!

XOXO
