I didn't think it would happen, but I've decided to step back and take a long break from blogging. Read to find out why!

So remember last week when I said I would be back “in a bit?” Yeah, me too. As you can tell, that hasn’t really happened yet. I don’t know about you, but I think breaks are healthy. Whether it’s a break from working on a project all day, a vacation to get…

Read about the time I finally stopped comparing myself to others. PLUS a podcast feature!!

Hey, hi, hello!! How’s everyone doing on this fine day?? I have to work a show this week so that’s what’s on my agenda for the next 6 nights! Okay, so I know this happened awhile ago, but I gotta say something…. Can we just talk about Lady Gaga at the…

The Dancer will be back in a bit because she needs a mental break. Much love! :)

Hey lovely humans! Sorry for my absence of posts, but I haven’t been feeling super inspired lately. I’m also not one for posting just for the sake of posting. I’m not a “half-asser.” ;) I need a little mental break from blogging right now, but I’ll be…

No, I'm not crazy. You'd be surprised at how much better you feel when you take time to BREATHE!

We know how to breathe. It’s something that occurs to us automatically, spontaneously, and naturally. We are breathing even when we are not aware of it. So it seems dumb to think that I’m writing a post about why we should practice our breathing, right?…

Today I'm diving into what the book "Intuitive Eating" has taught me about food and eating so far. You might be surprised!

Hey everyone!! Hope you’re having a great Hump Day so far! Tonight is the first rehearsal for my Senior Piece and I’m a little bit nervous, but I trust my 4 ladies and I know they’re going to do a great job! If I haven’t said it on the blog already, I’ve…

Oh HEY guys!! Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a fun, relaxing, and safe weekend, especially those of you who went to a march. I kinda wish I went because it would’ve been a cool experience, but I had an AWESOME weekend regardless. Cal was here so…

Sometimes it's hard to not worry about the future, but today we're talking about how to let go of things you can't control.

It’s the weekend, Cal is here, and I’m so ready to enjoy myself. HAPPY FRIDAY. I’ll keep this brief today…anyone else staying off their social media accounts today? All of my fellow Americans know why. It’s not only Friday, but it’s also Inauguration…

And here we go...reflections on my LAST semester of college that started yesterday.

It’s 6:00 AM. Alarm goes off. I sleepily sigh, stretch, and roll out of bed. Coffee pot goes on. Brush teeth. Do social media work, check emails, and sip my delicious coffee. (By the way, I just bought THIS creamer and I love it!) Head to 7AM Pilates. Get…

Saying "sorry" has become more of a reflex, and I know it's not just me. Here are 5 things you need to stop apologizing for this year!

Before I get into today’s post, please keep in mind that today is a celebration of the life and legacy of a man who brought hope to America. Happy Martin Luther King Day! Okay, now we talk. During my Movement Improv class in my freshman year, my teacher…
