My Trip to Egypt

My Trip to Egypt

I can’t believe it has been two months since I went to Egypt . I was lucky enough to be able to go on a family vacation with my husband and his parents and of course I fit in as much belly dancing as I could! I went a few days ahead of the rest and stayed at Yasmina of Cairo’s Belly Dancers B&B. It was a lovely experience, something I highly recommend. If you want to go to Egypt, but don’t want to be alone, check out Yasmina. The rates are affordable,...

New photo shoot

New photo shoot

It has been over a year since my last belly dance photo shoot, so I knew I was long over due. I like to get a professional photo shoot done at least once a year to document what I truly look like as a belly dancer. Let’s face it, nothing is worse than false advertising. I mean, have you ever thought someone looked one way only to find them looking 10 years older when you meet them in person (online dating comes to mind!)? I also love my costumes and I love to...

And a new year is here!

Wow, it’s 2013! I’m looking forward to some exciting things this year and I hope 13 won’t be an unlucky number for me.

Continue investing time, resources and energy into my students: While my student troupe and belly dance classes are small, I work with an amazing group of women....

Costume closet

Posted on Dec 15, 2012

I’m addicted to all things costume related, so I thought I would post a gallery of my current costume selection. Most of my costumes are from Hanan Mahmoud, Pharaonix of Egypt, Bella, or are self made. I also have a ton of skirts and costume pieces that allow me to mix and match my bras and belts. I love mixing and matching. If you’re not into making your own pieces, I highly recommend L. Rose Designs. Have a question or comment about one of my costumes? Leave a...

Long time, no blog

Long time, no blog

Wow, has it really been since June since my last blog? Shame on me! I used to be so good at updating! And here we are in October with fall bringing its first chilly weather. But I haven’t been doing nothing! While it is true that I haven’t been belly dancing as much as I want to, I’ve been busy with work and planning my wedding (it’s this weekend!), I’ve still been doing a little bit here and there. Here’s a rundown of how my summer and...
