‘Nigerian Boy, 11, Earns Scholarship Offers After Video of Him Dancing in the Rain Goes Viral’

Nigerian Boy Dancing in the rain goes viral


The viral video caught the attention of many, including Cynthia Harvey, the artistic director of the ABT Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School of Dance. One of the most prestigious schools in New York City In the United States. 

 

"A friend who lives in the UK sent me the video," Harvey told the Cincinnati Enquirer. "Within a day, I was trying to find him."


Madu is part of the Leap of Dance Academy, one of the very few ballets in Nigeria which only has 12 children.

FACTS ABOUT OUR PROGRAM. 
Behind those fanciful in class beauty and costumes are lots and lots of backstage hard work. With very little or no resources our kids are training to be the best they can. This is not to bring down anyone but to show their high level of dedication and committments to our program. Who wouldn't be proud of them? What teacher wouldn't pray for students who shows/comes to class with so much desire to learn? Kids who are ready to dance with or without conditions. Imagine what more we could achieve if we have more?
🙂
DMs for more information.

When Madu found out his video had gone viral the attention made the young dancer became "very, very happy."  

 

 According the the Nigerian ballet school, he has yet to officially accept any scholarship offers, though ABT is working on getting him internet access so that he can use a laptop donated by supporters, the Enquirer reported.

“A child who shows this much dedication, you just have to help,” Harvey told the outlet. “If there is anything the world has taught us, it’s that we have to inspire all sorts of people and that we all have a lot to learn from one another. Providing opportunities for Daniel and Anthony is the right thing to do.”

Writing Is A Powerful Form Of Record Keeping and Self-Reflection 

Why I Love to write, Lisa D'Anna, Lifestyle of Beauty

I've always found myself drawn to words and stories and the power of an idea—the need to understand the world and make sense of it. My writing helps me connect the dots in the world around me. With a touch of a pen to paper, my heart overflows with feeling, self-expression, and reflection, all placed onto a sheet of paper.  


Writing is an outlet for creativity and problem solving for me. If I don't understand a subject, I'll write an essay to get more insight into it rather than thinking about it or clinging to negative thoughts about something I don't understand. (#Becuriousnotjudgemental) This insight helps me better understand myself and those around me.  I gain compassion and empathy. 


Writing allows me to explore my thoughts and ideas safely without judgment or conflict. It brings together all my thoughts, emotions, and experiences into one cohesive piece that I can share with the world. That same writing that inspires me has the power to touch someone else's heart, make them feel better about themselves, convey their emotions in words they cannot say out loud.


 If my words push a pen into someone's hands and inspire them to write free from judgment, free from fear, and to find their vulnerability, find their courage to step into the light. Openly. Expectantly, my heart fills with joy for them and the future, for it means I'm living my destiny by bringing happiness into other people's lives. ❤

Biggest Challenge of Life is being yourself quote


Lifestyle of Beauty suggest: 

"For a moment, forget your career. forget your role as a mother or a wife. forget how much money you make or how successful you are. If you're struggling with the question "who am i meant to be?" This quiz can help you determine what defines you. based on personality science, I have identified seven "striving styles," modes of thought, and behavior that direct us to seek satisfaction in different ways. Although everybody is wired with all seven styles, most people have one that dominates. when you engage this innate style, you've got the best shot at fulfilling your potential; When you don't, you can feel stuck." →Take The "WHO ARE YOU MEANT TO BE" Quiz

Five Steps To Help You Live Out Your Dream. 

1) START SMALL. 

Just when the caterpillar 🐛 thought its life was too small, it became a butterfly. 🦋 

Set up small, realistic goals to accomplish each week, month, or year that will lead you to your ultimate goal. No one succeeds all at once, and how BORING if you did. 

Start small from a butterfly

2) BE PREPARED FOR FAILURES AND SETBACKS.

They're going to suck, but the trick is to ask yourself, "what can I learn from this."  Setbacks will happen. Prepare for what you can and learn from what you can't. 

 

"Failure is a great teacher and, if you are open to it, every mistake has a lesson to offer."-Oprah.

 

3) LEARN SOMETHING NEW ABOUT YOUR ULTIMATE GOAL EVERY DAY. 

Read a book. Find a mentor. The more you know, the easier it will be to accomplish your goal.    

 Imagine Explore Learn

   

4) HAVE A PLAN. 

Ten minutes a day, think about where you are, where you want to be, and the next step to get there. 

 

“The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.” 

– John F. Kennedy.

5) NEVER LOSE YOUR ENTHUSIASM OR STOP HAVING FUN.  

Your dream should be an adventure of a lifetime. Who knows, by the end of the tale, you may have a new dream! GOOD. In a world full of boring and often times, scary reality, sometimes dreams are all we have. Keep Dreaming 💤❤ XOXOOXOX


Dreams are the souls way of reminding us that there is more 'out there' than what you consider reality.

The Many Benefits Of Foam Rolling 



Woman Foam Rolling Back



From athletes, physical therapists to everyday runners to someone who only needs a self-massage from sitting at their desk all day,  foam rollers get used and recommended by everyone, because they work! 


Foam rollers help relax muscles and improve blood flow. They can be a tool to increase flexibility, mobility and reduce pain in the body.


Foam rollers are especially great for injury prevention. These benefits come from their ability to release trigger points, improve circulation, and decrease muscle tension. 


As we push ourselves harder and become more overwhelmed and tense, the need for tools like foam rollers becomes more crucial than ever before. 

At first glance, foam rolling may seem easy; however, it takes time and patience to perfect the correct rolling techniques.

Some discomfort is expected in tight areas that you are trying to release tension and tightness, but if you are experiencing extreme discomfort while foam rolling; you'll want to adjust your body weight. This will help you distribute your weight on the roller more evenly and provide comfort to your muscles. 

It is recommended to watch a beginner video in foam rolling if it is your first time to avoid discomfort associated with 1) poor form; 2) too much pressure; 3) overuse (frequent sessions). 

There are different types of foam rollers available in the market, differentiated by their densities. The higher the density, the firmer the foam is, while lower-density models are softer and more pliable(great for beginners). Foam rollers come with different textures on top to provide a variety of stimulation options for massaged muscles. 


After scouring the internet and reading reviews and trying out some of the top picks ourselves.....here are

Lifestyle of Beauty's Top Four Products Every Man and Woman in their 30's should own.


        1.   Concentrated Night Cream 

 

Before and After forehead wrinkles using concentrated night retinol creme
Our skin goes into repair mode at night, so find a night cream that addresses any skin concerns you may have. In your 30's you may start to see a blotchy complexion, a loss of elasticity, and fine lines. It's vital to look for a moisturizer that brightens, heals, and regenerates with retinol/ Vitamin A as the main ingredient. Vitamin A is the superhero of anti-aging ingredients, and it does a fantastic job at gradually removing hyperpigmentation and reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Lifestyle of Beauty's recommendation: StriVectin-AR Advanced Retinol Night Treatment, 1.7 fl. oz.

 

2.  Eye Cream 


BEFORE AND AFTER 1 week of use with the Derma E (SWAGGEROFAPRINCESS.COM)

The skin around the eyes is very delicate and shows the first signs of aging, especially in your 30's. Eye cream is worth the investment. Most concerns for women in their 30's are crow's feet, dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. To combat these issues, look for an eye cream with active ingredients that address your primary concern and have the essential ingredient, peptides. Peptides do a great job at tightening under the eye, and who doesn't need that. Our pick:  DERMA E ADVANCED PEPTIDE AND  COLLAGEN EYE CREAM 


3. Good Exfoliator

I can't stress the use of an exfoliator enough. Dead skin cells accumulate on the face daily, taking away the dewy, youthful look of the skin and leaving it with a dull, uneven look. Dull skin can make you look 3-5 years older than your actual age. Regularly exfoliating brings that healthy glow back by removing dead skin cells that clog pores, causing significant breakouts. It also stimulates cell renewal, making you look radiant. Check out:  Dr. Murad’s Multi Acid Peel. 


4. Sunscreen

Sunblock is CRUCIAL. Starting in your 30's you start to lose about 1.5% of collagen every year. The biggest culprit of collagen breakdown and 80% of skins aging, in general, are the sun's UVA and UVB rays.  Use a sunblock with a minimum of SPF 30. Our top-rated sunscreen: Supergoop! SPF 30 Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum

Did You know, Apples Hold Anti-Aging Secrets?

Brighten Skin and Fade Age Spots

 Apples are loaded with malic acid-an an enzyme that can penetrate the top layer of the skin, lightening any discoloration. Apples are high in vitamin C, which is known for its ultimate skin brightening capabilities.  Try puréeing a fresh organic apple with a tablespoon of honey. Smooth all over the face- (and hands too) leave on for 20+ minutes, rinse. Do this twice a week for noticeable results.

If you look at any Natural Eye Creammore than likely, apple stem cells are listed as the main ingredient.  There have been many clinical trials and studies showing apple stem cells significantly diminish fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes within six weeks of continuous use.

Say Hello to Strong Beautiful Hair

If you have weak and damaged hair, grab shampoo and conditioner with pectin. Pectin Shampoo does an unbelievable job at strengthening and thickening the hair. Reduce Shedding and Breakage
I've tried this tip after using pectin shampoo, and I'm obsessed.  After shampooing once a week, apply a 1:1 ratio of apple cider vinegar (ACV) and filtered water. Wait two to five minutes and rinse. ACV unclogs any stuck hair follicles that could cause hair loss, and it also stimulates the scalp helping with new hair growth. 

Life Is Short Smell The Apples

According to a Yale University study, the smell of apples- especially spiced apples, can calm you as well as meditation, and it helps ease anxiety and headaches.

6 MISTAKES YOU'RE MAKING WITH YOUR FLAT IRON 

Blonde Girl With Dry hair

1) IRONING WET HAIR: 
There's a reason hairdressers tell you not to comb your hair wet. When it's wet, it's at its most vulnerable. Hair proteins form weaker bonds when wet. Brushing and then applying heat to weak bonds is a recipe for disaster.   



2)  USING FLAT IRONS THAT ARE WAY TOO BIG: 
Hair tends to be the curliest at the root/hairline, and oversized irons make it nearly impossible to reach them. It is recommended to use a one-inch ceramic or tourmaline flat iron.

3)  SETTING THE HEAT TOO HIGH: 

Hair can burn just like your skin — you just can’t feel it! “450 degrees is too high. 410 works on every hair type.” -Nathaniel Hawkins, hairstylist 

 Hair On Fire
4)  RUNNING THE FLAT IRON OVER HAIR TOO MANY TIMES: Heat depletes moisture and natural oils from the hair, making it weak and breakable.  The less time heat is on the hair, the better. Use a potent straightening serum  and brush your hair as straight as possible before ironing.

 


5) FORGETTING A THERMAL PROTECTOR: 

Heat protectants are not a marketing ploy. They do a great job at coating the hair and removing frizz. Apply before and after straightening your hair


6) PULLING STRAIGHT DOWN: 

This is the easiest way to flat iron hair, but pulling the hair straight down makes hair flat and not the sexy flat, just pancake flat. Try moving your arm in a c shape as you move down the hair. This motion creates a boost of volume.
