I know I’m super cheating with these mirror shots. But it’s just too tempting and handy to ignore! I attended a seminar on email marketing and social media today hosted by Constant Contact at the Microsoft store in South Coast Plaza. It lived up to my expectations but I didn’t learn too many new things. I learned you can make your own QR code. Which is kewl. Shannah of The Student Stylist and I were the youngest attendees. But hey, man are we on our game and ahead of the pack. We are social media experts and proud of it. It’s a highly sought after skill people are paying big bucks for. Sumpthin’ to think about. Anyways, I wanted to look stylishly professional so I went with black cigarette slacks can I call them that? And an airy blouse with a cute elephant print. Red lips and nails for drama. I was wearing black high heels but they’re cheap Charlotte Russe heels so they were digging in to my feets. No bueno.

Got two new makeup items yesterday from Sephora. Nars blush and lipstick in Schiap. It’s very bright but I’ve been needing a little pick me up makeup wise. This week has been very fun and productive which is good. I’m wearing a new H&M sweater and satiny shirt. Soo cute. One week till I start Disneyland orientations!!! And then it’s my 23rd birthday! Oh my gosh I’m becoming an adult! Well..maybe on paper hahaha.

My First Time on the Flying Trapeze!

This weekend was so amazing!  Leanna and I got a Groupon deal to the Trapeze School New York on the Santa Monica pier for a high flying trapeze lesson.  We were a little nervous, Leanna had done trapeze before, but this was my first time ever!  The rig looked so huge and I was afraid of falling on my head.  We received a brief instruction on how to stand once you’re on the platform, they say ready, you bend your knees, and they say “HEP” and you jump off!  No looking back!

The feeling was exhilarating to be flying high and free, looking out at the blue ocean and pretty mountains.  I loved every minute!  Now I can look at the trapeze and think “Check!  Conquered!”  Hehehe  Even though there are SO many tricks to learn, I want to do them all!  It was MUCH easier than aerial hoop.  Hoop is pure muscle while trapeze is agility and timing.  It’s fast too, which I love.  It’s exciting.

Once we got our basic knee hangs down, it was time to do a catch.  This means there is someone on another trapeze swing who catches the other trapeze flyer.  Four people in our class tried, and failed.  They all didn’t get the timing down right and fell into the net or had to dismount.  It was my turn, and by this time a crowd had gathered on the pier and people were watching our class.  Everyone was saying “Cmon Natalie, show em how its done!”  No pressure, right?  So I jumped, legs up, hands off, and made the catch!  It was the coolest feeling ever and I am definitely addicted!  Everyone on the pier cheered once I made the catch!  It was rad.

Leanna did super good too!  We are going back to take more classes in the next few weeks.  If anyone wants to join us, please do!  It is so much fun, and the more the merrier.  Our instructors were super nice and made us feel comfortable and safe.  We can’t wait to go back!!!!

Ta-da!

I was getting sick of the what I wore to work titles. Yesterday was Michael and my 3rd anniversary. Three years we can’t believe it! Tonight we are going to a fancy dinner to celebrate. I am super excited. He is the best boyfriend in the world. 😉 I’m working all day today which makes me MORE excited for dinner with my honey. :p

What I Wore to Work

Went pretty plain today with a oversize black H&M turtleneck sweater and brown boots. The belt was my grandmother’s. Profesh yet comfy. Added gold Marc Jacobs hoop earrings and Michael Kors watch for oomph. :p I am exhausted after the weekend, and the work day, and can’t wait to go to bed! We had a lovely birthday lunch today for one of my bosses at Champagne in South Coast Plaza. So fun!!!! I love my job!
