EXPLORE THE JOURNEY OF BECOMING A BELLE ROUGE VIXEN
Welcome back! I know it's been a little while since I've last wrote for you ladies and I must say that I have missed you. This past week as most of you know, I went on vacation with my husband to enjoy some time away from the freezing cold as well as refocus on our relationship without any outside distractions such as work or school. After a long run of consistently busy days and nights of being a superwoman for everyone else, you have to take a step back and enjoy the roses while they are still fresh. Cheers to vacation time and spending time with your loved ones!
Last Wednesday, my husband and I drove down to Charlotte, NC so that he could take his final board exam before graduating this semester. Since there was already a need for a trip, why not make a vacation out of it?! Granted we were not in Puerto Rico or Miami sitting on a beach soaking up some sun, but just being in each other's presence was enough for us. We spent most of our vacation sightseeing, enjoying delicious food and doing some shopping here and there. We were also able to catch a live RnB jazz band in downtown Charlotte at the Epicentre which brought back so many memories (especially when the band started playing classic 90s R&B songs that everyone in the crowd knew word for word).
In addition to getting outside and exploring the city, spending time in our hotel room was just as peaceful. My sole recommendation for anyone seeking a romantic vacation, invest in a room with a jacuzzi tub! You can thank me later. That alone time to relax and let go of all of your worries all while the jets apply just the right amount of water pressure to allow complete relaxation, is all worth it. Oh and trust and believe I brought my stilettos and one of my sexy corset dresses for a night cap! In relationships, we have to keep things exciting and fun. Whether it's jumping in a car for eight hours to get away or catching a flight to an exotic (or country) destination, every couple needs alone time together to rekindle the flames within their relationship.
My challenge to you all which are in relationships (or about to get in a relationship) is to think of something out of the norm for you and spouse to do for rekindling time. That can be taking a weekend getaway trip to the Poconos, or just grabbing a hotel room in the city for a night just for a change of scenery on date night. In order to keep our relationships strong, we have consistently put in the work to make it the best it can be. What works for me and my husband, may be boring to some of you. You can always learn some sexy dance moves in a Belle Rouge Vixen class too ;).
Tell me your thoughts. I would love to hear from you ladies!

The greatest gift is being able to put a smile on another person's face. This past weekend, I had the pleasure of working with some amazing women for my latest Belle Rouge Company project. My brand's mission is bring the total glamorous (Vixen) experience to all women through beauty and seductive dance. All women deserve to feel sexy and look their best and that is why I have made it my purpose in life to bring that joy to women all over. Today's post is about tapping into the beautiful and seductive woman inside and bringing her to life.
The ladies in the behind the scenes picture above come from several different walks of life. Some are mothers, wives, students, and business owners, but ALL are extremely sexy! My goal for this project was to take everyday women and show them that we can all be beautiful and fierce models. I had the distinct pleasure of hand selecting each beautiful model and corset, as well as doing some of the models' hair and makeup. While in the midst of styling one of the ladies, she shed tears of joy. I was taken aback for a moment because I couldn't understand why she was crying. My first thought, was wait, you're messing up your makeup! Just knowing that someone cares and shows you that you are beautiful, can make the strongest of us feel sexy and moved. The feedback from these women have made this entire experience more worthwhile. So while you're thinking you may not have what it takes to be a model or look like one, think again. It only takes effort and confidence to be anything you want to be.
My photoshoot was not about me, it was about all of the women involved! Here are two before and after pictures of models dolled up by me with hair and makeup by Styles By Belle.
In addition to the Belle Rouge photoshoot, I had the honor of teaching some sexy ladies in Delaware for my "Rock Your Stilettos" event in collaboration with Danceworks Dance Studio on Friday. Majority of the ladies in attendance were all first timers and all left feeling wonderful! We performed a seductive dance to "Dance For You" by Beyonce. As I told my students during your class, the objective is to practice performing in heels and tap into your sexiness. When the heels come off, so does your balance. With practice and consistency, dancing in heels becomes a breeze!
This Saturday, I'm bringing the sexiness to Philadelphia for my #MoscatoAndHeels class. Ladies! I hope you're ready! Stay tuned for more fabulous happenings with The Belle Rouge Company.

As you all know by now, I like to leave you with a personal challenge. This week's challenge is to make someone else feel beautiful. Whether it's through giving a compliment or telling your friend (or a stranger) their hair looks nice today. A compliment goes a long way and could honestly turn someone's day around. Keep being boss women!
