Autumn Look Book 2017

LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO WEAR BORING CLOTHES.

Hello everyone! It’s finally the time I show you all my favorite autumn outfits. Enjoy!

1. Everyday Errands

This outfit is super casual, and you can wear it pretty much everywhere. The statement piece is obviously this beautiful army green jacket by Sweet Wanderer, which you can adjust to be more cinched in at the waist or a bit more oversized. I kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple: a black tank top, black high waisted jeans, and my trusty black-&-white converse. For accessories, I wore a silver ear cuff.

 

2. Cool & Casual

This outfit is pretty simple just like the last outfit, but it’s more for those chillier days when you have things to do but still want to be cozy. Again, the statement piece is the  Guess Floral Collection 1984-1994 edition, this epic and beautiful bomber jacket. Fun fact: it was actually my Mom’s. For the outfit, I wore a simple gray long sleeve top with an open back for a little extra personality, some medium wash blue jeans which I cropped at the ankles, and some black ankle booties.  It’s one of my favorites as it is both comfortable and cozy. For accessories, I wore a Kenneth&Cole watch and an ear cuff.

3. A Night Out

So I was given this dress by a lovely friend and I knew that if I could find an excuse to wear a cute dress, I would be wearing this. This burnt orange lacy number is feminine and romantic, but also, does it not scream fall? I paired this with black tights and my Bella Marie Booties. You could pair these with a pair of black booties as well and it would look just as great. For accessories, I wore a gold bracelet, some gold droplet earrings and my gold ear cuffs.

4. Date Night 

I’ll be honest, I never go on date nights this fancy. Correction: I never go on date nights (unless it’s a daddy/daughter or brother/sister date). However, I do go to a few semi-formal events throughout the year. I actually have a wedding to go to in November, so I will be more than likely wearing this dress. This dress was also given to me by my lovely friend and it is a sleek black dress with some rather nice detailing at the waist and bustier. I paired this with my 8-inch Mix No. 6 heels you all know I love and this black and white scarf, which definitely dresses it down, but will still look nice and semi-formal (definitely not a formal number). I wore my hair in a french twist for a more elegant look. For accessories, I wore my diamond drop earrings and my diamond necklace.

. . .

Alright guys, that is it for my Autumn Look Book! I hope you all enjoyed it. Please leave me a comment down below letting my know your favorite fall clothing items, I’d love to know!

LIFE ON POINTE Episode Four | Season 2

Hey guys!

This week was my first week working with a new teacher privately. It was so good! I learned a lot, my mind was almost refreshed a bit, and I gained muscles I didn’t even know I had. It was all around a really good day!

I also learned a brand new possible variation for YAGP!!! I’m actually really excited and I really did fell in love with the variation. Updates on that coming soon.

Thank you so much for watching! Love you all!

My Stretching Routine

“Fall In Love With Taking Care Of Yourself.”

Hello Everyone! I hope you are having an absolutely amazing August so far! I am bringing you my stretching routine. As I just got back from intensive training not to long ago, I was introduced and reminded of stretches that are really amazing for freeing up your body. Here’s a routine I put together to show you of all my go-to stretches for before, during, and after classes or workouts.

… Good Investments …

A few good things you may want to consider buying that I could not live without when it comes to stretching is:

  1. Therabands
  2. Cross Balls + Tennis Balls + Golf Balls
  3. Foam Roller

You can get these items at target or online. They are extremely useful for massaging out tender areas, kinks, and sore muscles. I highly recommend you get them.

I hope you all enjoyed this post! Have a great rest of your week, and I’ll see you all soon! I love you!

LIFE ON POINTE FINALE: SUMMER EDITION

Hey guys!!!

It’s over! Four weeks ago, I was waiting outside the studio, imagining my fourteen year old self walking in and meeting new people, discovering a new studio, and being taught by new teachers. After taking a quick walk down memory lane, I walked in, greeted my teachers, hugged my friends, and felt like I was home.

Now, it’s the day after the entire intensive ended, and wow, where did the time go? In that time, however, I really am so proud of how much I’ve improved. I am so excited about going back, but I’m also really happy to have a break and to be finally home.

I did overstretch the top of my right foot during the last partnering class when my foot folded under me and sent me to the floor. I feel a lot better now than I did yesterday as I performed ‘Jumping Girl’ by Balanchine from his ballet ‘Who Cares?’ solo, but it’s still bothering me, so this week I will be nursing my bruises, blisters, and VERY minor injury.

This week felt so amazing, starting off the mornings right with either yoga, pilates, or posture & placement. Classes with the master teachers was so amazing, and I feel like I’ve learned a lot on how to evenly spread out my energy and not waste so much of it. We alternated between pointe and variations and pas de deux, where we worked with former professional dancers from New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. After lunch, we had character or contemporary.

This week, I felt really good, and when my Dad came to watch, he filmed some clips from classes. I watched a few of them, and I was really happy with how it looked. Even though that day I felt extra weak and started my period right before the next class (every ballerina’s worst nightmare), I was proud of how I danced despite how I felt.

Thank you to everyone who helped send me here, to the incredible Los Angeles Ballet Academy for an incredible time, to my grandparents for hosting us, and to my parents, who made this entire experience possible. Thank you to all of you who have watched and read and kept up with these episodes, for supporting me, and making me feel so incredibly loved. I love you all, and I’ll see you Wednesday!

Morning Routine | Summer Edition

Hello everyone!
I am so excited to bring you all my morning routine. It doesn’t really change season to season, so this routine is pretty standard for every single day. For the summer, I am away and living in LA for a month for my summer intensive training, so rather than starting work right away, I’ll be leaving for my intensive classes. Anyways, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s begin!

When I first wake up in the morning, it’s usually at 5:30 or 6:00 A.M. and I’ll start by shutting off my alarm and oddly the first thing I do is check my emails. I don’t know why. After shutting off my phone, I’ll turn on some worship music and devote an hour to spending time with God and reading the bible. At the moment I have been reading a lot of Daniel and Matthew, however I’ve also been reading a proverb daily. Starting my day with Jesus is so important and I find a huge difference in my mood and perspective if I don’t spend time with Him.

Around 7:00 A.M. I’ll make my bed and head into the kitchen to make my vitamin cocktail, if you will. I use the Isotonix products and they are so great. My morning cocktail includes the Multi-Vitamin, OPC-3, Calcium Plus, and Advanced B-Complex to give me some extra energy. Once I chug that down, I will make some breakfast and a pot of coffee. This particular day I made cheesy-scrambled eggs and sourdough toast. I would’ve done avocado and put the eggs on top, but I ran out of avocado and I was really sad about it.

After breakfast, I’ll go into the bathroom and do my skincare routine. I use the Skintelligence line and mix it with the Lumiere Di Vie Serum Concentrate, which helps reduce acne, the Lumiere Di Vie Eye Cream, and the Timeless Prescription Anti-Blemish Lotion, which I mentioned in my June Favorites.

After I take a quick shower and get my hair out of the way, I will sit down and do my makeup. I applied my custom blend foundation (link to my second favorite foundation), my Motives Creme Concealer in Peach to my blemishes, my LaLa Liquid Foundation under my cheekbones for a glowy-bronzed look, the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector to my cheekbones, the Motives Luminous Loose Powder to my t-zone, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette to set my bronzer and highlight, the Motives Pressed Blush to the apples of my cheeks, the Pure Cosmetics Nude Palette (literally the same exact as the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette) to my eyes, the Motives Fiber Lush Mascara to my lashes, the Motives Kohl Liner in my waterline, my BareMinerals Brow Powder and the ABH Clear Brow Gel, and my BareMinerals Gen Nude Liquid Lip Color in Boss to my lips.

I will then take a look at my fragrances and today I picked one of my favorite every-day scents, the Philosophy Pure Grace scent, which smells like fresh morning air mixed with clean laundry. It smells so lovely.

I will then get dressed, and this was my outfit of choice. I will also put on my accessories of choice and then I’m good to go! As I said earlier, I will either start school or work (depending on the day) or, as I am a part of a summer intensive trainer, will leave for training.

That’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed this blogpost. If you would like to watch the routine, the video is linked down below! I love you guys very much, and I hope you have a beautiful rest of your week!

LIFE ON POINTE Episode 3 | Summer Edition

Partner: Gabe Salazar 

Hey Everyone! I cannot believe we are 3/4’s done with this intensive! In some ways, it has flown by, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been hard and long days.

This week, we had a mix of yoga, cardio, and pilates all in the early morning as our warm up, and I have to say as I’ve done this every day for three weeks, it’s gotten so much easier. It’s still hard, but it isn’t as painful, the soreness isn’t as prominent, and I actually feel stronger when I do it.

For ballet classes this week, I did have a day where I sat out. I was having incredibly sharp pains in my stomach and every step I took was so painful. I did do a bit of contemporary that day, but it still was prominently painful. I did learn a lot by sitting and watching, but when I did dance, I learned that I use way too much energy in certain movements that don’t require as much force or energy. It helped me dance from a place of relaxation rather than horrible tenseness in every muscle, and I wasn’t as tired at the end of class.

We had character for two days, and to be honest, it wasn’t my favorite. I found myself a bit bored, although I did do the movements which our teacher said was nice.

We had contemporary for the rest of the week, and it was amazing. The teacher had us improv the entire class, and then she gave us tasks to use in our improv. We had to create letters using our bodies, and we came up with some pretty cool stuff. We got paired up for “duets” that were not meant to go together, but there was one particular couple that was so amazing, I actually cried watching it. It was so beautiful, so moving, and somehow so in sync with each other; keep in mind that they’d never seen each other’s pieces as well. UGH!!! I actually have chills thinking about it.

Pas De Deux on Friday was really hard! Our teacher was different, and his combinations were so much harder. At the end, he told us we were going to do a flying fish from the ground. I wasn’t able to capture the full thing, but I started on the ground, and my partner’s job was to pull me up and “throw me,” all while I jumped. I would be in the air for a split second before he’d catch me, and he did, which, we were both impressed that we nailed it. It was terrifying at first, but once we got the coordination, made the eye contact, and rode the same wavelength, we nailed it four more times.

We had four variation classes as well, and we learned the Tchaikovsky Variation from the Tchaikovsky Pas De Deux, which is my favorite variation of all time. We also learned the Sylvia Variation, which is all relevés and hops on pointe, which was actually really painful. My toes were so numb after that variation, it hurt more that when my feet were in the shoes.

This week overall was a fun week, and I hope you enjoyed watching this episode! I love you all, and I’ll see you next week for the Summer Finale!
