Beauty from within: The importance of positive self-talk
How you talk to yourself is just as important as what you put in your body and how hard you train. In order to reach your dance goals, you have to find value in your routine of how you talk to yourself especially when it’s hard. Just remember you’re your biggest critic and can be your biggest cheerleader if you choose.
In the Kitchen: My go-to pre and post workout snacks
My staple dance meal prep includes veggies, protein and hydration. I need to have meals with no inflammatories and I have to make sure I have enough complex carbs to keep up with the workouts I do each day. Read more to find out about my pre and post work out snacks

Lights, camera, skin care!
As dancers, we are constantly moving, sweating and probably wiping our faces or fixing hair, am I right?
Teaching long hours, rehearsing all day and the make up we need for the stage all adds up. I have tried so many products and make up and I finally found the perfect balance. Every skin type is different so what works for me may not work for you.
Skin care lin: Meaningful Beauty
Makeup: Tarte cosmetics, their tinted bb cream and foundation (both with spf) is all natural amazonian clay based so I don’t break out and it wears well weather I’m teaching from 9am to 6pm, or on stage. It comes off with regular face wash, (no scrubbing needed) and never clogs my pores.
My morning ritual: Write!
Everyday take ten minutes to write. Writing is so important for your mental health. It gets things off of your mind and literally onto the paper, relieving you of the hamster wheel running non stop. It reduces stress, helps you to organize your thoughts and reinforces the amazing power you have inside, charging you up to use it each day to achieve your goals.
Three things you’re grateful for, your daily affirmation that supports achieving your most important goal, and what you are manifesting and bringing into your life NOW!
The truth about modeling is that it is extremely hard jumping on concrete.
