Bon Ballet Diary – September 8th, 2016

I wanted to add something new to Miss Alice Beauty and share a bit about a new challenge I have undertaken! The “Bon Ballet Diary” will be a weekly installment of the challenges, obstacles, and rewards of starting ballet at twenty-something with no prior experience. I embarked on this journey despite the fact that I am in a class of hyper fourteen year olds and against all gravitational odds that make me feel less than graceful. Thus far I have had four classes of which I have been cramming more vocabulary then an elementary school class. Tendus, arabesques, releves, and more that I can’t even remember! As far as feeling sore…let’s just say getting out of bed has never felt more awful yet rewarding. I am beyond excited to learn and grow more. I have taken it upon myself to work on flexibility and strengthening from home. Here are a few of my favorites from the last few gym visits: Ballet Beautiful: Lean Legs  and Butt Shaper with Mary Helen Bowers Flexibility Stretches with Psyche Truth …

Life Updates!

Hello everyone! I cannot describe how happy I am to share another post with all of you! I want to apologize for having disappeared this past month. I graduated from my university and was offered a full time position that had me running to pack my belongings with it’s quick start date! Everything happened so quickly that I barely even had a chance to stop and breathe, haha. Thankfully I have been working around the clock in the training program, soaking in everything like a sponge, and preparing for the final move soon to my permanent location in early July. I am beyond excited to enter this new chapter in my life with all of you! Once I am settled into my permanent location I will try and figure out a regular posting schedule again. The adjustment to this new lifestyle has been a challenge, but I’m always up for one! My current obsession has been interior design! My new apartment is a blank canvas that I cannot wait to decorate and make it feel like …

What’s in my Bag Tag!

Hello everyone! I hope all of you are wonderful today. These past couple weeks have been a whirlwind with packing all of my belongings and moving back home from college. It seemed like the packing and unpacking would never end! Getting myself into a new daily routine has been a bit of challenge so bare with me as I try to get a posting schedule going again! Today I wanted to share a fun tag I’ve seen quite often on Youtube, the “What’s in my Bag” tag! I find it so entertaining to see if other girls carry as much as I do. I am known for having a bit too much in my bag; kind of like Mary Poppins! Let’s dive into the main things I always have with me! My wallet and keys are always an absolute must. I recently picked up this new Ralph Lauren wallet that I adore! The color is cheerful, the compact design is perfect for the few cards I carry, and I love the gold accent that complements …

Casual Brunch

Hello everyone! I hope all of you are wonderful today as always! Today’s post is rather special being one of the last shoots I took at my university. It is absolutely surreal to be done, but I am excited to take the next step in life. If I’m not obsessing over beauty and fashion, I’m usually talking about food. There are just too many delicious dishes that must be had, right?! The brie my friend and I ordered at this local restaurant was too good to put into words. It was the first time I had ever tried it; I have no idea how I lived without eating this! As for what I wore: shorts to combat the scorching Florida heat, a flowy blouse so no amount of food I eat will show, and my bucket backpack that has been my constant companion these past couple days. – Outfit –  Simply Vera Wang Blouse | Cynthia Rowling Shorts | Vince Camuto Bucket Backpack Until next time. Take care!

Travel Diary Part I – Redington Beach

Hello everyone! I am beyond thrilled to be sharing yet another post with all of you today! A close friend and I decided to to venture off into a weekend getaway to celebrate the end of our time at our university. Laughter, sunshine, tousled beach hair, and timeless memories were among the many things we shared during the trip. Visiting the beach was such a tranquil experience; the waves caressing the shore, the warmth of the sand embracing my skin, and the sea breeze gently sweeping the landscape was incredibly magical. I am dying to return already! I recently picked up the swimsuit featured in this post from Target. I love the the vibrant embroidered detail against the black canvas. It adds just enough color, perfectly capturing the essence of the warm summer season. I want to give a special thank you to my friend, Meghan, for the incredible time! It was unforgettable. – Details – Target Xhilaration Bikini | Vince Camuto Mini Backpack Until next time. Take care!

Summer Sunshine Essentials

Hello everyone! I am thrilled to be back with all of you today. Today’s post revolves around summer essentials to beat the heat while looking put together. Lets begin! 1. Makeup and Nail Essentials During the summer heat I do not wear a full face of makeup since it feels like it will just drip off at any moment. My go-to face product is my No. 7 Soft and Sheer Tinted Moisturizer in medium with SPF 15. I have severely dry and sensitive skin so tinted moisturizers are the best route for me. If you have oily/combo skin then I would consider a lightweight powder option to keep shine under control. This particular tinted moisturizer has light coverage so it allows my natural flush to come through meaning I don’t need any blush when using this product which is a definite plus to keep products to a minimum! Glowing skin during the summer is a must. I particularly like to use the Wet n’ Wild Coloricon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana. This product is a bit …

My Travel Bag – South Florida Bound

Hello everyone! I hope you are all wonderful today. Today I will be traveling home to spend a lovely week with my family. I am thrilled to relax and enjoy my small break, but I have heard that it’s been raining terribly! Hopefully it will let up so I can enjoy some afternoons by the pool. I wanted to share some packing basics that I will be bringing on my trip so let’s get to it! 1. Lightweight blouses  As you can probably guess, South Florida is overwhelmingly hot during the summer so packing lightweight blouses and tank tops is essential to keep from melting in the sun. Here I packed two semi sheer blouses with color and floral that embody the summer feel and allow air to move through it. What I love about those two blouses is the ease in dressing them up or down for any occasion. The third blouse is made of a gorgeous black lace. I always pack a blouse that would be great for an evening dinner out. 2. …
