DANNNGGG y’all! I’ve been gone for a minute. I apologize, it’s been a busy season. New posts are coming though, as next week is spring break for me and I am vowing to write at least one post a day. Until then, I feel bad for neglecting you guys, so here’s a bit of something fun! Maybe you’ll learn something new about me? Flip the script to find out one of my biggest (& most embarrassing) guilty pleasures…

why i blog…

blogging_101Someone asked me (quite sarcastically) why I had a blog and why somebody would care enough to read my thoughts. I gave them this.

it’s a celebration – my 2 year blogiversary!!!

It’s my blogiversary!!! #TURNUP!!! Just in case you’re a little confused: On this day two years ago, I published my first blog post and said hello to the world through the chanel-logo-cake-2loveliness of WordPress! From then to now, I’ve published 77 blog entries, which encompass everything from my biggest loves to my biggest insecurities and so much in between! I’ve enjoyed sharing my experiences living this dance life with you and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about them! Here’s to many more years of blogging and many MANY more posts!

much love to you ALL!  ~b

happy new year!!! 2013 in review and looking forward into 2014

new year 2014 2

Happy New Year friends! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are ready to start anew in 2014! I want to thank you for your readership and support throughout 2013 and as I continue to do my best into 2014, I sincerely hope I can count on your continued encouragement. Arigatou gozaimasu! *claps and bows*

WordPress cooked up a little 2013 cumulative report about my blog this year. I think it’s cute, so I invite you to take a look at a few interesting facts they found. Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 950 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 16 trips to carry that many people.

Posts will continue as usual and I look forward to reading your comments and thoughts, and I encourage you to add your voice to the conversation in each post.

with much love, b.


vlogging – opinions???

So I’m toying with the idea of vlogging…Not those daily ones where you follow me around, but a quick video of my experiences in the given situation. I’d love to be able to share a taste of what I do in the summer with you or the craziness of a rehearsal. As much as I have outlets like Instagram (now with video!) and Facebook for that, I’m thinking a video would be relatable and fun too!



update: i’m alive!

Hello friends!

dpg_7504 (2)I’M ALIVE!!!

I know, I know – I took another inadvertent break (the longest one so far), but I’m happy to announce that I’m back now! We all know how life has a funny way of slowing down and speeding up and my life ramped up to a ridiculous speed. As I’ve said before, something had to give, and much like last time, it was the blog and my social media communication. As much as I like the large reach being on social media gives me, it’s always so exhausting to keep up with it along with the everyday life of maintaining a dance career. I do hope to become better at it though. I’m rebuilding a backlog of posts to keep you entertained this summer. I am working again with HTE Dance for most of June – August, but I’m determined not to fall behind like I did last summer.

You can look forward to new posts (the first one being today!), as well as some new twitter interaction and good stuff like that. I ask that you send me some good vibes and thoughts this summer, as I’ll be working my butt off to possibly bring you some new choreography demos and finally finish my doggone website! Thanks for sticking by me and if I’m not here, you can always find me here or here!

with love, B ❤


it’s my one year anniversary!

so who's making me a cake?! "DOn this day one year ago, I published my first blog post and said hello to the world! In 52 weeks, I’ve posted 51 blog entries, which I pretty good given the two (inadvertent) breaks I took! Covering everything from the evolution of my musical tastes to my favorite choreographers, I’ve enjoyed sharing my experiences living this dance life with you! Here’s to many many MANY more posts!
