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.

Okayyyy… To say I am obsessed with his dress would be an understatement. Sometimes I feel like Isla Fisher in Confessions of a Shopaholic, Where she says, “you know that feeling you get when you see a cute guy, he looks at you, smiles, and your heart melts like butter running down warm toast? That’s what it’s like when I see a store.” That’s how I felt when I saw this dress at Bloomingdales in Chicago. Okay, literally the most dramatic thing I have ever said (and I think I like cute boys more..) but honestly, it was fate because there was only one more, it was my size, It fit me like a glove, AND it was ON SALE! Seriously, what are the chances? (I’m crying out of laughter as I write this because, bless my heart)..  However, You too can get the love and satisfaction that I got out of this dress b/c I found it on Sandro Paris website, and It’s also on sale! Why do I get so much satisfaction when I find a winning piece of clothing AND It’s on sale? Priorities people.. but really though?

Happy Valentines Day, My Loves!

Something I think is slightly comical (the older I get, the funnier it gets) is that each year, every girl (including myself) find so much satisfaction in having “A Valentine”. It is so fun to have someone who loves you, and cares deeply for you. However, we often look past all the amazing people that are already in our lives, constantly looking for the one person who will make you feel “special”. But truth is, those people are all around us. Yes, it is so much fun to have “A Valentine”, and yes you feel so lucky to have someone like that in your life, but at the same time, there doesn’t have to be just one valentine. Today is about love and about making others feel loved and important. There are soo many people who can do that for you. As part of the Love Yourself Campaign I have been asked to be a part of, I’ve realized that it really is so important to look at the good within yourself, to love yourself, before you can truly love anyone else. I LOVE Valentines Day. Partly, because I love receiving flowers (who ever thought a girl could feel so loved than to receive a big bouquet of flowers), Love the colors- pink, pink, and more pink, I love the joy that comes from truly loving a person and vice versa, and the opportunity it allows us to share our love with those around us. It’s true what they say, Love is the most powerful thing in the world. I love, love. I love all the incredible people in my life, And I love all of you lovelies, because without you, none of this would ever be possible. I hope you have so much fun dressing up in the best colors ever, get lots of flowers, eat tons of chocolate, and feel so much love. You, are all amazing and worth being loved. Always always remember that.

Thank you so so much for reading!!!

Happy Love day.

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!

There is still time to overnight a last minute package, or just give yourself (or a friend) a little Happy New Year gift. No better way to ring in the new year than with an amazing J.Crew Sale!

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.

Thanks for Stopping by and have a Very Merry Christmas and the Happiest New Year!!
