It's been a while. I haven't stopped blogging, though. I've been tending to my very neglected tumblr blog. I wish I could say I had time to write several times a week, but with my schedule this summer that will not be possible. Here's an update on me:
- I perform six days a week and my only off day is on Thursdays. Thursdays are usually filled with catching up on my "social life" and family, of course.
- I am also a sales associate at BCBGMAXAZRIA!! (This is new, so I am very very excited!)
- I am working on my own personal endeavors.

Max Azria is a very talented designer who understands the shape of a woman. He has several successful lines including Hervé Léger, BCBGeneration, Max Mara, Max and Cleo, Max and Miley, and my favorite BCBG Max Azria. In each of his clothing lines, he emphasizes the importance of feeling comfortable. It is almost impossible for a woman to act and feel confident if she feels uncomfortable in the garment she is donning. The fibers you will find most commonly in his garments are rayon, nylon, and spandex. Azria’s creations have a very flowing drape and it usually clings to the body to show off the curves. Thanks to the use of these stretchy, form-fitting fabrics, women are able to “mold” the garment to their body shape.
Beyond the conceptual ideas behind the design-process comes a strategically planned construction-process. While paying close attention to body shape, Max Azria places each ruffle, gather, pleat, and dart in the most flattering way possible. Making the customer look good is rather important, not only for self-esteem, but because it makes the designer look good. Most of Max’s designs can be described as sophisticated, sexy, and feminine. His garments range from a beautifully tiered halter dress with gathers to a tight and clingy “power skirt”. The “power skirt” is not to be worn by the shy and modest. It is for the bold and confident woman with nothing to hide.
Max Azria’s designs can be worn by all types of women. Whether the customer is a laid-back beach bum or a high-society business woman, there is the perfect garment waiting to be found. I could speak for hours on end about the reasons I find Max Azria so influential. Every time I enter his store, I feel the immediate urge to touch, try on, and purchase. No other designer has ever continuously had such a toxic impact on me. It is best I lock away my wallet before entering the store!

The length is perfect for my height and it is very form-fitting. The cut-out back is an innocent and modest way of showing some skin for the hot, summer days. Most importantly, I try to incorporate lace into many of my designs. It is the signature element in my pieces. As I tell most people, I am inspired by so many people, places, artists, and musicians, but I have four key ideas that I always draw from: black, purple, lace, and butterflies---these four ideas describe me as a designer and you can definitely see the influence it has made in my pieces.

I won't say rompers are my NEW favorite thing,
because I have yearned for one for about 3 years now.
I could never find one that fit the length of my body, though.
This is the year! I have had such great luck with finding rompers and I now own four!
They are all very flattering and make my legs look longer and thinner!
Who doesn't want that? Buy a romper!
P.S. Blogger is being weird, which explains the choppy formatting.

I sang this at the Showcase for Haiti. Together, we raised over $1,000 dollars and I am so proud I was able to share the experience with such a caring group of people. I woke up with laryngitis but with the help of honey, I was able to make it through. It is a bit rough, I'll admit, but I had a blast doing it! The show must go on!

I absolutely adore Neil LaBute's works. He is an entirely honest and witty playwright, in which I find myself laughing at the true situations I often find myself in. I am using this piece for upcoming auditions, so I hope you enjoy it and believe my character. I want to be as honest of an actor as I can possibly be and I really feel Neil LaBute has helped me in sculpting my character.
P.S. I apologize if I am speaking too softly. I recorded this in my dorm and I didn't want to bother the people in the room next to me.
