Hiii Friends! Happy Monday.

 I have found the worlds greatest hair product, I’m literally obsessed. It’s called, Tossed Salt Spray. It adds so much volume to my hair. I’ve been using it to let my hair dry, adding extra curl and volume, and then either leaving it for a natural beach wave, or adding some curls for a little more glam. Last week, I was in California, touring and performing with my dance company, BYU Contemporary Dance Theatre, and I used it almost every day. My hair was seriously on point. So wavy. I loved it. As a side note, can I just move to California? The weather? literally amazing. Anyways, the trip was amazing and I couldn’t have been happier dancing and performing every single day. I was in absolute heaven.

A lot of my readers probably don’t know this about me but, I grew up training and dancing competitively at a studio called The Dance Club. I was there from age 3-18 dancing on the highest company, and working with some of the worlds top choreographers. I loved every second of it and truly became the person I am because of it. So much of who I am I owe to my amazing teachers and studio directors. I grew as a dancer, a person as well as an artist while I was there, which is a huge reason I got into modeling, fashion, and photography. I also learned so much about hard work, responsibility, team work, integrity, and so much more thanks to The Dance Club. If you have little girls and are considering dance, it was the best thing I could have ever done. Just to add something else about myself, I now dance at BYU. I did Cougarettes for 2 years and am currently doing the contemporary dance company, minoring in dance and majoring in photography. This summer, I am doing an internship in NYC with Jon Moe for fashion photography.  I’m hoping to take and assist some dance classes as well. I auditioned for the Rockette intensive while I was in Chicago a few weeks ago, and I just found out I got in, so I’ll be doing that as well, which I’m super excited about. After graduation, I hope to move back to NYC and pursue dance as a professional career, while continuing my love for photography, fashion and modeling. Goals.

Thanks so much for reading, love you babes.

Hello, all you Lovelies! If you follow me on Instagram (@megricks) or on Snapchat (megricks) you saw that I was in Chicago just a few weeks ago with my momma. I hinted that “there were exciting things in the works” happening down there AND there were. I was actually down there for a dance audition I’ve been dreaming of since I was 9. The audition went really really well and I felt super good about it, but we won’t know anything for a few more months.. keep your fingers crossed. Anyways, we had never been to Chicago before so it was a whole new adventure. We LOVED it. We walked pretty much everywhere, shopped till we dropped down Michigan Avenue (also known as The Magnificent Mile), ate lots of GOOD food (we are total foodies), and enjoyed the most amazing weather (BONUS). Some of my fave stores were, Bloomingdales along with their unreal fro yo via Orange Carrot, Banana Republic,  A GORGEOUS Nordstrom — it was honestly so beautiful, Zara, and a Ginormous Burberry (truly a work of art). Our fave Restaurants, thanks to some amazing recommendations were, Girl and the Goat (reserve early, it’s unreal), RPM Italian, and Lou Malnatis Pizzeria. We enjoyed some amazing art and museums as well, and really just had so much fun being together, my Mom is my very best friend. I love her dearly. And since everyone keeps asking me, “where to next?” — you’ll just have to wait and see 😉 However, the point to all of this is that I found this sweater in Chicago at Banana Republic and I’m obsessed, plus it’s on sale with additional 40% off. It is the coziest ever which makes me the happiest ever (ha).

Thanks for stopping by and for anyone who gave us the above recommendations, Thank you!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen a few of these pictures from my roommate Christmas shoot.  I obviously couldn’t post all of the pictures there, so here are a few of my very favorites. I really lucked out with such amazing roommates and best friends. I am a big believer that the Lord places people in our lives for a reason. Nothing is coincidence. These two are an incredible blessing in my life. They both had just returned from serving a mission for the LDS church and truly got home just when I needed them. I had just gone through the biggest and most challenging trial of my life this past year and I know the Lord put them in my life to help heal me. I am so blessed to have them. Not only that, but they are always down for late night chips and salsa, dance parties in the apartment, and are my biggest supporters at dance performances. Plus, they let me style this entire shoot exactly how I wanted and it was so so fun!!! Thanks to J.Crew for helping me fulfill my inspiration. Plus, J.Crew is having an extra 40% off all their sale items! Check it out. Gotta love those post Christmas sales! Also, Net-a-Porter is having a huge sale on designer items. Check it.

Happy Holidays!

My family and I are enjoying a good 47 inches of snow up here in Park City.It’s sort of a blizzard but we are still hitting the slopes and taking advantage of all the fresh powder. Then of course  sipping hot chocolate and warming by the fireplace afterwards.

I love spending time with my family, it really is the best part of the holidays. I hope you all made it home and are enjoying some down time and celebrating with the ones you love most.
