March Life Favorites

Hello, friends! March was so hectic and a ton went on with the musical and school things. However, some of my non- beauty/life favorites have gotten me through the stressful month of March. I hope you enjoy!

Music:

Beautiful by Carole King: I discovered this song this month and I absolutely love it. Carole King is a classic and this song is constantly getting stuck in my head. I definitely recommend that you listen to it.

Moving Too Fast from “The Last Five Years”: I’ve really been into listening to the soundtrack from “The Last Five Years” this month. The music is really good, in general, but I especially love this song. It has a really upbeat sound and just makes you feel happy when you listen to it.

Apps

Silva Relax: Since this month has been really busy, I’ve been needing a lot of sleep. The app, Silva Relax, is absolutely wonderful, because it really helps me quiet my mind and go to sleep. You can play different relaxing tracks, and this really soothing voice guides you in your relaxation. I definitely recommend this app if you have trouble falling asleep or relaxing.

Overall, March was a really busy, yet fun month. Now that Spring is here, I can enjoy the warm weather and sunny days! I hope you guys have an amazing April!

Fame In Reflection

Hello, friends! Last week, my school closed our spring musical, Fame and the cast and crew has mixed feelings about it. Overall, I’m super proud of what we did. The cast and crew of the show are really talented and it was a blessing to be able to work with all of them. We put on a really good show, and I definitely learned a lot from this experience.

Theatre is unique because it puts you in a position that is uncomfortable to be in: putting yourself out there for everyone to see while convincingly being someone else. It’s definitely challenging at times, but it allows the creation of truth onstage and gives a clearer image of self.

The feeling that I get from being onstage is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I get this surge of adrenaline when I perform, and I’m really thankful that opportunities to do shows like Fame come along, because I get to live out what I’m passionate about.

Also, getting to play Carmen Diaz was a dream come true. Even though Carmen is nothing like who I am, I learned a lot from her, and was able to grow in my craft of acting.

Again, so thankful for Fame! Thank you to everyone who supported and helped put this show together. ❤

Hello Spring!

IMG_8303

Hello, friends! I am so happy that it is springtime! I am loving the warm weather, the sunshine, and the beautiful pear trees! Spring is definitely one of my favorite seasons, because it gives the opportunity for a fresh start! You can finally get out of that winter funk, break out the sunglasses and a fresh outlook.

I encourage you guys to embrace that idea of a “fresh outlook”. Spring is a great time to really take the time to cleanse your life, whether that be through friends, negativity, or tangible things like clothing. You don’t have to be the same person  you have always been. Try something new and embrace your fresh start! Happy spring!
