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.

How was everyones Long Weekend? If you follow me on Instagram then you saw that I went skiing with my family this Martin Luther King Day. I love the few long weekends we have this time of year because they are the perfect opportunity to spend a little extra time with the ones  you love most. Those are the best kind of days. I am slightly obsessed with my family. Any day I get to spend with my family is a day well spent, in my opinion. So grateful to have them. I’ve been so blessed with such an amazing fam and I am so grateful I get to spend forever with them. Such a happy thought.

In other news.. This has been one of my favorite outfits this winter season. I Especially loved this combo over the holiday season. But, the great thing about this skirt is that it can be worn in multiple ways and makes for the perfect stand out, dressy (and of course classy) outfit.  Plus, the other great thing about this skirt is that it is on sale at J.Crew with an additional 40% off!!! I just ordered a few new goodies myself and they were all such an incredible price. Can’t wait to share those new items with you. But, until then, hurry over and shop the sale before it ends.

So grateful for all you amazing readers. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello and Happy New Year (even though its already the 12th..)! For my first post of 2016 I wanted to share my New Years Eve look. You can never go wrong with a little black dress, no matter what age or occasion. I think every girl needs an LBD. They are absolutely timeless, chic and oh so flattering. I found this dress at Anthropologie in New York last month. It was love at first sight. I like how different it is and that it’s a little bit edgy on top but classy and cute on bottom. It could also be worn in so many different ways which is the best part about it. That’s actually the great think about any dress really, that they can be worn 100 different ways. Dressed up or down, you’ll always have a winning outfit.

As a side note: I am so excited to start posting a little more often this year. I have so many fun ideas and collaborations coming up so keep your eyes peeled.

Thanks for stopping by!

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.
