EXPLORE THE JOURNEY OF BECOMING A BELLE ROUGE VIXEN
You ever just want to get away from your regular routine and go have a night out with your girls? Well Saturday night we did just that in classic Belle Rouge fashion! Saturday's Ultimate Ladies Night event was all about enjoying the presence of other women, letting loose, supporting female entrepreneurs and getting sexy. We were accompanied by ladyprenuers, Sch-Rel Desire Jewelry and V3nusVintique clothing boutique. I was also able to cop some sexy new neck candy, earrings, and a bomb sequin gold top! Guests were also able to purchase my Belle Rouge Vixen corsets for half off too.
The evening kicked off with an intimate make-up class where the ladies each learned how to apply their own make-up using Belle's tips and tricks. Each VIP guest received a fabulous professional eye-shadow palette by Morphe, essential eye-shadow brushes, and few extra goodies. We spent the first hour and a half of the night just getting dolled up together and enjoying classic 90s jams! My students did an amazing job on their make-up creating soft yet sassy looks! See their photo below. After our VIP make-up class, the night spiced up with a flirty routine to Prince's "Kiss". I'm so proud of all the ladies who came out and stepped outside of their comfort zones to learn my routine! (See a small group of us performing it below.)
Every now and then we have to treat ourselves to a night out away from our spouses, kids, and other responsibilities and just have fun. The greatest part of the night for me was to hear my guests mentioning how much they needed to get away and how happy they were to come out. If you have yet to make it out to a class, what are you waiting for??? Come and join us in New Castle, DE on May 27th at 8:00pm. Tickets are available now in our BR Vixen Store. Philly!!!

Hey BR Vixens! It's been a lonnngggg time since I have wrote to you fab ladies and I must say I have missed our conversations. I have been preparing for some major changes in my life which have required a lot from me physically and emotionally. This past week was very huge for the Belle Rouge Company. I had the distinguished honor of being featured in my very first live performance as the sole choreographer and creative director of my performance. I know this may seem pretty "ehh" to some people, but to me this was my first time getting on a stage with COMPLETE creative direction and control over what I performed. In the past, I have been a wonderful supporter in other shows as a dancer and supporter. This time I stepped out on faith and took control! It was very exciting and scary at the same time. For those of you who supported by getting tickets, I truly appreciate your encouragement and support! To those who were unable to come out but shared your well wishes along the way, I thank you. My vision was to portray the essence of a well-rounded seductress and entrepreneur of the arts. It came to life before my very eyes, making all of the hard work and long nights so worthwhile. Today, I want to talk to you about pushing through and overcoming difficult obstacles on your path to achieving success.
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!
This past week has been an extremely productive and positive week for myself and for my business. From hosting my first model call to attending an unique vision board experience with my girlfriends, I can finally sit down and reflect. I have to be honest with you, lately my focus has been on reaching the goals I set for myself in 2015 while also creating balance at home. I found out this week just how others see my business and what they believe it stands for. I must say that I am proud and humble. There is so much more work to be done; however, just to know that you are empowering other women you have never met to make a change in their life and see other women who want to be apart of your vision, it is truly amazing!
Getting more into today's topic, I attended a vision board session yesterday which blew my mind. To be completely honest, I have been hesitant in the past to attend such an event because I have been nervous to share my dreams and goals with other people. I have this sense of protectiveness around my goals and vision for my business mainly because I have seen that not every person is genuinely excited to hear your plans or believe you are capable of achieving those goals. Am I wrong for being this way? Possibly, but when you have a business, you want to treat it like your baby and protect it from negative outside forces. Until you are ready to show, then do not tell. That's my new life motto.
The Unique Vision Board experience hosted by Davita Garfield & Joyce Robinson of "Dreams, Goals, Vision" catered to encouraging women to dig deep down inside themselves and figure out exactly who they are. After you have openly talked about how you have made it to where are today, you then categorized where you saw yourself in life currently. I am happy to say that I have a plan and I am working on it! I must say I was unaware of my own strength to maneuver through obstacles in my path and turn them into positives. Sometimes you need to hear from other women how your story motivates them to keep pushing forward. That lets me know that I am on the right path as well as to continue doing what I am doing. Many thanks and appreciation goes to my husband and close circle of girlfriends for pushing me to be my best and constantly being a positive support system. Overall, the vision board experience was amazing and I highly recommend other ladies to schedule their own private group session with these amazing women.
So today on the beautiful Monday, I want to challenge you to take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to reflect on where you are in life today and ask yourself, "is what I'm doing today, helping me to get to where I want to be tomorrow?" Think outside of just your career goals, but also focus on your personal goals. Are you still wearing sweats out of the house and putting everyone else's needs before your own? Have you started holding yourself accountable to dress up more? Are you taking the necessary steps to start a healthier lifestyle? Also, going back to a previous post, have you worked on finding balance between work, your personal life, and keeping your significant other satisfied? I'd love to hear from you and how your 2016 has started!

Side Note: For all of my readers, I am so grateful for your continued support! Yes, there will be more relationship based posts and dance related posts. Lately, I have been so inspired about women empowerment and growth. I am genuinely happy to see other women going after their goals and supporting other women. I believe there is enough space for us all in this world to be successful in life, especially in entrepreneurship. As you have heard before, "supporting another person's success won't ever dampen yours." Food for thought. Have a wonderful, productive week Belle Rouge Vixens!
