Goddess Training: Day 37 – 40

This week has been really busy. This particular week was about empathy and compassion. Empathy and compassion is critical in our society because it helps us to see more out of people and put ourselves into their shoes. This week, I was feeling helpless in the wake of so many tragedies. I felt super selfish

Goddess Training: Day 33 – Yoga Today

Today has been all sorts of challenging. This time of the year, I personally get a little squirrelly because I want to learn all the things and be creative as well as be moving. Desk work does not really fit that bill, yet it is a necessary evil. That is why today I focused on

Goddess Training: Day 32 – Confidence

Tonight I want to talk about confidence and nervousness. Confidence comes when one feels comfortable with whatever aspect of a task they are doing. Often times those who do not feel confident / comfortable with something, that is when the nervousness kicks in. Backstage I experience many individuals who are very “nervous” to perform. I

Goddess Training: Day 31 – Creating Consistency

To create change or achieve goals, one must think and act upon creating consistency. Consistency is more than setting an appointment and going to that appointment, it also means that you apply the changes and modifications you are setting forth for yourself. Often we schedule (or this week in my case) over schedule ourselves to

#CostumeFiles – Moondance Shoes

As a showgirl, we do what we can to make everything sparkle. This also sometimes gets brought down to the shoes. For me, I was insanely bored of just the basic and traditional rhinestone of shoes. Yes, we get to see beautiful dimension when we use large and small stones, and even shapes. I wanted
