A Surprise Trip To The Ballet

My fiance is one who likes to tell me some surprises before they happen but he was great at keeping the day he proposed a secret lol. One day he sent me a calendar invite for a special night and I thought we were just going out to eat and hanging out by ourselves. He had to tell me one day that I was going to the ballet to see my idol dance, Misty Copeland!!! I was super happy and couldn't believe it. I've been wanting to get to the ballet for a long time but I couldn't wait to see her dance! I actually didn't know what to wear to the ballet and had to do some research on what to wear. I was under the assumption you had to wear a ballgown and be really fancy lol but as long as you were presentable. I was so excited that day and just couldn't wait to get there. The ballet was at the David H. Koch Theater and it was so beautiful in there! We actually had floor seats close to the stage which blew my mind!

We couldn't take pictures or film during the performance but just to see Misty up close like that was just life lol. She was just so beautiful in person and the way she danced was more than amazing! I was just in awe. The fiance got major points for this one!

There were three acts to the program and intermissions in between. Misty only danced in the first act but I loved the rest of the ballet! I was just so happy! After it was over we were outside like everyone else taking pictures and stuff. I have never been to the Lincoln Center and it was just amazing!

We walked across the way to find this Italian restaurant and the food was so good. We both had pasta and had some good ol' NY cheesecake!

I had spaghetti with goat cheese on top and he had rigatoni with vodka sauce

The cheesecake was soooo good! We were stuffed lol!

I hope you guys have a good weekend and see you Tuesday!!



  1. I've never been to a ballet or live show or musical. I would like to one day. I would really like to see The Nutcracker live. I've seen it a bunch of times on tv as a kid. It sounds like you had a great night!

  2. That is awesome that you were able to see Misty live.......I love her and she is amazing.

  3. I haven't been to a ballet since I saw the Nutcracker when I was child, but I do want to go see another ballet! How awesome you got to see Misty Copeland! She's a amazing dancer! Her story is so inspiring!

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.

It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh! 

You guys may see another appearance from my son, he is so silly and full of energy lol! I think I forgot to mention some favorites but you'll see them next month. What products have you tried? What were your thoughts? See you guys Thursday!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there.
