Behind the Stage: Putting on a Wig

Transforming into a skid row urchin in the 60s era for Little Shop of Horrors was so much fun.   Here is a video on how I put on my wig for the show.   And a little treat at the end where I pay homage to my favorite superhero, Wonder Woman!   My little corner oasis in the girls dressing room.   These are essentials!!! 1.  My boy shorts because when wearing a skirt on stage and running dance numbers, giving the audience a peep show is absolutely NOT part of the plan. 2. For singing throats:  LOTS OF WATER, preferably with raw honey.   And when your throat gets tired and sore after a couple of shows?  Who would of thunk!?  Ginger candy…works wonders. 3.  Face towel because I tend to sweat like Whitney Houston on a big night. I’ve actually have become somewhat of the ultimate professional in the fake cut-crease eye makeup area.   Let me know if you would like to see how I created my own fake cut-crease eyelid. I learned so much…and some the hard …

My Little Shop of Horrors Audition

I HAVE BIG NEWS! I was going to post this in a couple of weeks but I literally have no time to focus on my Youtube channel so this is actually the perfect way to do both. Last month, I took a leap of faith and auditioned for a musical. If you have been following my blog, it’s #4 on my to do list before I turn 40. And also, my last Youtube video was actually a hint. Please check out my YouTube video to see how my auditions went. 🙂

DIY: White Wall of Things to To

Do closet mirrors scare you?   Well, join the club.  Other than giving a small room a larger illusion, it’s kind of scary.   Imagine this:  It’s late at night, you are alone in your office just typing away.   Then you lean back for a stretch and at the side peripheral you see hands!  Your head immediately turn that direction and there you are in the mirror looking back at you in a frantic gaze. So, since I need to make my top 10 things to do this year.  And more than not if I wrote it in a notebook or in an email, I’d most like will not look at it like I constantly look at it now.   In my biased opinion, this is brilliant.  But I only covered one slider so that I will still have that “large room” effect from the other mirror. Want to try it?  It’s super simple and takes like 15 minutes.   The hard part is drawing out what you want to put on your wall.   Let’s start with the easy …

My First YouTube Video! 3 Days in New York City!

My girlfriends and I went on a spontaneous trip to NYC on Memorial weekend.   I booked this cute apartment on AirBnB perfectly situation in the upper eastside.  From the pictures on AirBnB, the stairs in front of the buildings reminded me so much of the intro to Laverne & Shirley.   I love that song – “Making Dreams Come True”.   I couldn’t help myself, I just had to make my first YouTube video with Laverne & Shirley theme song covered by yours truly.   Check out it out and please comment or subscribe or both!  And then check out some of my favorite places in NYC below to get ideas for your next trip to NYC! Food: Gray’s Papaya – Great hotdogs and the papaya drinks…YUM. Levian Bakery – Must try it, the muffins are on steroids! Things we did: Silent Disco @ South Street Seaport – I never knew dancing with headphones with a bunch of strangers with their headphones can be such a fun experience.   I seem to concentrate more on my own awesome moves than people watching which …
