Prepping for Competition

Hello friends!! How’s your thursday going?? I am sorry for being MIA yesterday, between work and competition prep, I never made it to the computer!! The horror, I know! I am thrilled that you all loved my new competition dress!!! I am obsessed with it, and it mean the world that you loved it too!

Today I wanted to talk about competition prep. I know a lot of you have watched Dancing with the Stars and see all the crazy outfits, hair, and makeup. Well as much as a competition is very different than DWTS, when it comes to appearance it’s pretty much the same! So let’s get to it! The week of the competition is crucial and looks a little like this:

  1. First thing I have to do is get my eyebrows done. This is serious business, you’re hair is slicked back and your face better be perfect!! Not to mention stray eye brow hair drives me INSANE!
  2. I throw in a couple extra dance lessons. You really need to be ready to get on the dance floor and practicing your routines over and over again is a way to get there.   
  3. SPRAY TAN! Remember when I went spray tanning for my last competition?? This will actually be happening today. It’s the best when you finish and see yourself in the mirror and don’t know who you are. HAHA
  4. The day before (tomorrow) I will be getting my nails and toes done and then taking my final dance lesson!! This is crunch time baby!

This is all just preparation for the big day!! I can’t believe I’m competing on saturday!! TWO DAYS AWAY! If you want to know more about the competition I’m doing you can check it out here!

Remember when I got that awesome package from Chobani?? Well when I moved in with my cousin Sara, I found out she was eating Fage greek yogurt. I told her she had to try Chobani, so she did and she’s hooked!! I told her that Lemon is the best flavor but we still haven’t been able to find it!

Moving on to some eats…..

If you are looking at the travel mug for my smoothie…..look no further!

I bought the Hamilton Single Serve blender from Target yesterday!! It’s not amazing but I like that you can just make you’re smoothie and go! Less clean up time!!

That’s all for now!
