Happy Holidays to you ALL! I've been enjoying my break AND the fact that I have more time to do some  DIY'S. I was in Home Depot looking for some supplies for another DIY and my husband stumbled on this WHITE COUNTER TRIM TILE and said "You can use it as a phone stand". My eyes lit up and I tried it in the store and it worked PERFECT.  I added some felt self adhesive stickers and this is what I got. Feel free to jazz it up even more but my decor is yellow, white, and grey so the white worked perfect for my nightstand. :)

Beyonce and Cakes LOVES Chloe and Halle!

Beyonce has recently shown ALOT of love to kid talent on her Facebook and Instagram. Chloe and Halle who were students of my kids dance program Project SLIDE  and have worked closely with were recently one of them.  If you know them like I do you know they LOVE Beyonce so how cool of to get that stamp of approval by Beyonce herself. They covered Beyonce's Pretty Hurts flawlessly so we can see why  the "Queen Bey" herself couldn't deny the talent that these two young ladies have. I remembers meeting them 4 years ago and seeing the potential in these too ladies. After meeting with them I knew I had to post a video of them because they just had that it factor to me and raw talent.  I then started doing their choreography, introducing them to people in the industry, and supporting their careers as much as I could.  Check out their cover of pretty hurts and SLIDE'S recent dance video to Beyonce's Flawless. Kudos to Chloe and Halle and look out for them as it's clear to see their future is bright. Also check out Project SLIDE Atlanta's premiere dance program for kids and our awesome services for kid dancers and singers.

Beyonce's Surprise Album

So I haven't honestly purchased a full album in FOREVER and then at midnight the Beyonce/ Beyhive Buzz started regarding her surprise album dropping. 

As a dance teacher I'm ALWAYS looking for great music so I figured I can trust Beyonce to deliver. So I went to iTunes and listen to every song first. Honestly at first I had a look on my face like, "what has happened to Beyonce" only a couple of songs caught my attention after only listening to the sample. Then I realized they provided video snippets for every song. I watched every video snippet and  was completely sold after that for several reasons 1) I admired her work ethic and that each video was different and visually stunning. 2) The songs made more sense and were more Beyonce than I realized! Needless to say I purchased the full visual album for only 15.99 :) Oh yea AND she had a clean version so I can teach something to my kid and teen dancers. Way to go Beyonce!!! 

So I have to share what I learned from Beyonce's release of this visual album as an entrepreneur. I was so inspired!

 1) trust your gut 
 2) take risk
 3) go against the grain 
 4) do you 
 5) create honest work

Thanks for the inspiration now I really can't wait for her to rock one of my Don't Be Shady Be Cool Tshirts that are available at ! :) 

Album available now on iTunes!
