New Hair, New Ad, New Year!

I had alot of fun shooting the New Years AD for BellaDulce Clothing. This was the first of several new ads coming out this year starting with their new spring 2013 collection. The theme was fun props, a variety of hair, and of course great new looks for the holiday! Im in love with my new hair color and plan on it sticking around for a while :) but its a great day when you can go from 1940's sleek to Big Barrel and wild! The New Years ad will be out soon cant wait to share it with you! xoMB


Spring Overalls Trend..would you dare?

We can say its wrong or ask why its happening but everything comes full circle and maybe a few times at that!  The overalls trend is peaking into our spring 2013 future and I cant say its all bad with a pair of glam pumps and a tailored fit I could see myself stepping out in it. How about you?


The IRobot new Dance ad!

If you have followed my blog for a while you wouldve seen my post of Coco Rocha's White House Black Market ultra Fab Tap dancing commercial.  Its an amazing thing how dance influences what we wear, what we watch, and now even more so what we buy.  Beyond the talent in what looks like just average everyday individuals its a treat to what them roboting and popping n locking throughout the feature.  Kudos IRobot for jumping on the arts train!


4 Resources Upcoming Recording Artist may not be using

In the hustle and bustle of trying to build and grow in this industry the best form of advice has always been to stay relevant and push self promotion.  In my journey of dance, working with new clients and creating musical visions for productions I realize there have been a handful of times that artists have approached me with their music.  The times that I have been approached each time I have listened to it and passed it on to a friend in the industry that may be a good fit in networking with that artist.  Artist you may be missing out if you are not using the following outlets for your work and if you are kudos to you!  More is always more when marketing yourself.

1. Sound Cloud- This free app is self explanitory and will house a place for your music to be heard and shared between followers.

2. Choreographers-As a choreographer we have a full list of previous and current clients we work for that we could recommend your music to. Choreographers also require a huge database of music to do their job.  We are always creating short pieces for reels, auditions, and personal pieces. Some of these pieces get lots of recognition, posted on youtube, or other social sites!  This can lead to bookings for parties to concerts.  This day in the industry if someone recommends your music it carries more weight than a cold call.

3. DJ Management-Need I explain more this person has access to his/her own set of DJ's they represent and the possiblitiy is endless if they think your records are worthy!

4. Dance Companies- DC's are full entertainment entities they employ dancers and put on productions.  Having said that their need for music is high and for their productions.  The fan base that will come to see the productions along with the reps from larger companies that are looking for talent may get a wiff of your music! It cant hurt!

Make sure you are using all your resources!

I accept music samples through our dance company bailafuzion@gmail.com !! xoMB

Halloween Final: Nyterie from Avatar!

Its finally here and all the preparation led to a super fun night!  My costume this year was Nyterie, Zoe Saldana's character from Avatar! The Jumpsuit I ordered from Partycity.com which came with the feathers, arm case and jewels.  I added the belt as the body suit wasnt cut for my tiny waist.  I hand painted and did my makeup myself (tutorial to come later).  You can see the other pictures I added to my gallery here! xoMB

I have settled in nicely to the dark lip trend for the fall season and who woulda new that the brand that has my fave shade would be Wet n Wild! Its Mega Last Cherry Bomb! I wore it last night for the DJ Lobo event so of course I was salsa dancing and drinking bottle after bottle of ....water :) No seriously it was water and my lips lasted all night! Cant beat it! Def at $1.99 its worth trying and affordable to throw out if you dont love it! But I have a feeling you will! xoMB

My Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe!

With the weather changing it has put me in the mood to start whipping up soups, gumbos, and comfort food in general.  I ofcourse, post the pics of my creations on Instagram but will start posting my full recipes here!  Try them out and feel free to tell me what you think! Also feel free leave your creative twist and suggestions in the comments! xoMB

What you'll need:
(Based on Serving for 4)
1/2lb Farfalle Pasta
1 Large Box Natural Low sodium Chicken Broth
1 Medium Bag mixed veggies frozen (carrots, peas, corn etc)
1-1.5lbs of Chicken (I use dark meat)
Sea Salt
Minced Garlic
Garlic Powder
3 Tablespoons Recaito (Goya)
2 Whole Fresh Limes (Room temperature)
Boil Chicken in large pot with 3 parts water and 1 part Chicken Broth.   Boil down until chicken is thoroughly cooked add remaining chicken broth and Farfalle Pasta.  If using bone in chicken take out of pot and seperate meat from bone disgaurd bones if you prefer (I put them back in the pot to simmer in soup).  Cook pasta for 5 minutes add in veggies, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 3 tablespoons recaito, dash of pepper, dash of salt, and dash of garlic powder.  Simmer soup for 20-30 minues over medium heat.  Serve with half a lime!  Enjoy! 

Today's Lunch!

I woke up this am and headed straight for the deli to get fresh prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato and baguette bread! This was the best lunch ever! If you've never tried it you must! Don't forget a dash of salt and pepper on top! And low fat mayo or honey mustard is a great alternative!

Preparing for Halloween!

Halloween is one of my fave holidays! The makeup, costumes, and everything in between! I'm kicking off my preparations for Halloween this year with ditching the red hair for dark and stay tuned for what else! xoMB
