    I love this video so much. It's so interesting to see how she uses the eyeliner smudger to apply eye shadow. I want to take her brush shopping and then have her teach me how to do all of the ballerina hair styles

    When i first heard that she only washes her hair once a week i was shocked.then i realized that i'm just the same as her:)😂😂😂😂

    But people, for real, if you have problems with odor on your armpits, just put some lemon, like, rub some on it, and you'll be fine for the rest of the day.

    i need advice!
    i started dancing ballet when i was 4, and i had dreams of becoming a professional dancer. unfortunately when i was 12 i had an ankle injury (not too serious, i was off dancing for a month) but when they x-rayed my ankle to check if it was healed, they found out i had severs disease, which is to do with growing rapidly and exercise, and it became too sore to dance on. my coaches and parents agreed i would take a year off, then come back with it all healed. but we moved out to the country and there are no studios around us now, and i never went back to dancing. i'm 15 now, and all i want to do is be a dancer. i can't imagine being happy in any other life where i'm not a professional dancer, but i can't take lessons now. what should i do?

    i love how they mention that she started ballet at age 11, because a lot professionals start from ages 2-5, and shows that you don’t have to start super young to be successful

    I want to be a ballerina but I have a bit of a tummy and a big butt, 5 feet 8 inches 149 pounds. (I'm working on losing weight and inches) I've been taking for four and a half years. End of this year, I intend to quit, if my mom lets me.

    10:05 that is what my teacher calls them! She gets mad at us whenever we have a "doorknob bun." 😁 She was a professional ballerina before she taught, so maybe that is where it came from☺
