DIY Cheap + Chic Wreath, Plus Some Rabbits

Ok guys, it’s been foreverrrrr since I last posted. I’ve gone through a job-change, breakup and more since I last wrote, so bear with me! But just today I made this amazing spring wreath for my front door. It was cheap to make yet also looks very chic and very much real! This was made from a very inexpensive grapevine wreath that you can fine at your local hobby store along with cheap, dollar-store flowers!

Another Easter-y post I wanted to share with you all is my collection of bunnies. I have had a thing for rabbits since I was young and actually had a pet rabbit who lived for 9 years (this was long for a rabbit when their average lifespan is 5-7 years). Below is a collage of all the rabbit-y things I’ve collected over the years.

Yoga & Spa Magazine, Summer 2014 Issue

Most of you know that I work for two magazines here in the Lou, and one of them is Yoga & Spa Magazine. On Thursday, we had an exclusive party celebrating our new summer issue, and over 100 fans, readers and advertisers came to party! But today, my man and I drove around the entire city, delivering said magazines to all of our distribution points! It was a fun road trip to say the least! Here’s the cover, it’s so gorgeous. I wrote around nine articles and blurbs in this issue, so I must say it’s one of my greatest achievements thus far! Visit www.yogaspamag.com to see an online edition of this issue! Also follow us on Twitter @YogaandSpaMag and on Facebook @ Yoga & Spa Magazine.

10 Days Of Flamenco

I am so sorry for being nonexistent for a few days! In a few posts past, I’ve blogged about my love of flamenco, including pictures and such of the art. Well, this past Friday (Valentines Day), my flamenco company put on our huge Valentines a la Flamenca extravaganza! We invited guest artists from Spain to be a part of the show and it was incredible to say the least. The entire past year pretty much has been full of getting ready for this show, so a lot was hanging on this pivotal evening. I was just so blessed to be able to work and dance onstage with these fantastic dancers. Here are some misc photos of the show.

Here I am dancing my solo, Tientos.

Valentines Day… oops, I thought since it’s Valentine’s Day and all that I should change up my font color! Voila! Did that make your heart a little more happy? Hope so! So, as I was saying…Valentine’s Day. The holiday of love–for some, that is. I’m fortunate enough to not be spending it alone, but I am writing this post not only for those who have beaus but also for those who don’t. If you’re a gal that is heartbroken that you don’t have a guy this holiday, use the time to do things for YOU!! Love YOURSELF! Or, in the words of Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle from Parks and Recreation, TREAT YOSELF!!!

The True You

I’d like to share with all you ladies out there a magazine that, to me, is a breath of fresh air in the industry of women’s print media. Verily is a mag that touches on all kinds of subjects–culture, fashion, relationships, and cooking. This read celebrates the best of who you are and, what’s most awesome about this mag, is that all their models are natural–no airbrushing or Photoshop allowed. I think this in itself is one of the best things you can do for a woman’s self esteem because I know I hate seeing seemingly perfect women in the media who represent an image real women could never hope to achieve.

True to its name, Verily stands for empowering women and challenging them to be true to themselves and what they stand for. In a media world full of lies and fake images, this magazine is truly a breath of fresh air and something that all women need to start reading.
