Velvet

“And I’m fallin’… fallin’ for you hard. Let’s slow down; this is just the start. When you hold me, I can’t sing the blues. Like velvet on my fingertips, you sure are smooth”

Lyrics: Velvet by Sofia Caterina

Hey everyone! My friend just released her very own song a few months ago. Believe it or not, Velvet has already received over 30k streams on Spotify and topped 17k views on her YouTube audio track. It would be great if you guys could help promote this rising star by re-blogging this post, sharing it with your friends, and posting it on your personal sites. It would be very appreciated if the WordPress community could help get her more publicity… Be sure to give this song a listen!

Music…

Music… The mood booster that always ends your day on a good ‘note’…. The influence of your highly off-pitch voice screaming lyrics into your imaginary microphone. You think you are having a great time until you realize all of the windows of your house are open and all of your neighbors can hear you *cough*. ANYWAY, I wanted to dedicate this post to all of those music lovers out there who are always searching for new songs… Enjoy!

Snowy Saturday

Today, we have over a foot of snow!

It is a pain, but it is so pretty though.

With snow up to my knees,

we don’t have many days like these.

When the flurrying powder covers everything in white,

I am finally experiencing the Christmas delight.

Snowman creating.

Cookie baking.

This is the best Christmas in the making.

It has been a snowy Saturday morning, as the snow continues to fall from the heavens. We now have over a foot of snow on the ground, and we are watching that number continue to grow.

It is truly a Marshmallow world, you guys. Stay warm and safe this magical weekend! 🙂

Friday Finds

I could not help but to share this… The Piano Guys truly gave this song life and magic; I loved every second of it.

*It IS possible to tell a story without saying a single word…

I hope that you enjoy this beautiful, Friday Find as much as I did! 🙂

Snow Queen Casting!!!!!

pointeshoes

I am extremely humbled to share that I have received a principal role in this year’s Christmas production… I will be portraying a girl who looses her brother to the almighty Snow Queen and goes on a frozen adventure to return him home. I Am Gerda. This will be my very first main role in a ballet, so I am incredibly honored to have been trusted with this responsibility.

*This weekend, you will find me in front of the television watching the movie and getting a better understanding of the plot… I know that the ballet may change a bit, but at least I will have the general idea. To be completely honest with you, I have never heard of the Snow Queen until now, so I think that it will be helpful to have at least SOME background knowledge (whether it is 100% accurate or not). Aside from that, I think that it is going to be neat to see how the movie and ballet will differ… Have a great weekend!

T.V Series Obsession

Let’s face it, pretty much everyone has a t.v series that they are absolutely obsessed with. Whether it is Grey’s Anatomy, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory, Scandal, Little Big Shots, MasterChef, Dancing with the Stars, Pretty Little Liars, America’s Got Talent, or even Supergirl (just to name a few), there are millions of episodes that people are sure not to miss. To be honest, I am not that big of a couch potato, but there are a few seasonal shows that I am always absorbed in.

So You Think You Can Dance is one of my favorite shows that only comes on during the summer every year, and I pretty much watch every episode of it. Last night, I was watching the recording of day 1 of the Academy, and I was in for a big surprise… With almost 100 dancers, this outdoor celebration dance incorporated every individual style in as little as 3 minutes. The only words that came out of my mouth was, “I have to post this…” 🙂 Enjoy! Hopefully this must-watch boosts your mood and energy this Wednesday morning.

“The College Project”

stage

The leaves blew across the illuminated stage, making our skirts flow in the soft breeze. I glanced at the glowing red recorder in the “audience” that was filming our every move. A flat 10 minutes of dancing flew by, drifting off with the leaves. All that was left on the stage were sweet sounds of nature, and a peaceful pair of pointe shoes left in the spotlight.
We came. We danced. We performed. The College Project has been completed.
