Gypsy Rose Pole Dance Class Review

A few other boston bloggers and I attended Gypsy Rose Pole Dancing "One Hit Wonders" class. One of the most humorous events of my life. Upon entering the Back Bay studio we were ushered into the costume changing room, where there was a surplus of eccentric costumes. Of course, this pole dancing studio wouldn't be complete without a full supply of platform boots/heels, clean socks and pom pom shorts for everyone's use.

I honestly think this class would have been a totally different experience without the quirky instructor. After demonstrating a dance routine, we stretched, got up and started the class by perfecting our model struts. For those of you looking to learn, I'll give you a hint.. Just channel in your sexy goddess. Walk and think "I am the issh (Sugar Honey Ice Tea)".

After a few tweeks and tats everyone was ready for the poles. You must remember before approaching the pole that "The pole is your friend!"

We learned a few air maneuvers, twist, and turns on the pole. I learnt where the "Circle of Death" was and what part of my body should I use for strength for specific moves. I learned so much in this class and had alot of fun while doing it!


Following the Modeling Strut and Pole routine we were taught choreography for a floor dance and chair dance. Each very creative in their own way and feasible for all ages, shapes, and sizes.

In the end, I would definitely visit again and take a few addition classes with the wonderful director. Possibly for a fun girls' night out, bachelorette party, birthday party, and there are so many different possibilities. I think pole dancing could be a really fun way to get your weekly exercise, or for you muscle heads, daily exercise. I attended this event to learn and experience something new while, having fun with fellow bloggers.

Tips to Save Money for Prom

Tips and Deals you can use to save money for that special night!

How to go to prom without going broke. There are many expenses associated with prom: hair, makeup, the dress, accessories, flowers, the limo, etc. It all adds up! In fact, PromGirl.com estimates that it will cost between $175 and $2500. Here’s how you can lower that amount: Below are some tips and deals from Boston-based coupon site BeFrugal.com:

       
      See if you can borrow a dress. Do you have a cousin or friend at another school with a beautiful one she only wore once now it’s hanging in her closet? It doesn’t hurt to ask! You can also look into renting one from a site like Rent The Runway, which has free membership and 90% off retail. Get free shipping on prom dresses using this Nordstrom coupon (no coupon code needed when you click the coupon link, expires 5/31/13) and you can also get 2% cash back. If Nordstrom does not have the perfect dress, enjoy free shipping on orders over $50 with this PromPrettyDress.com coupon code (expires soon).

      Bling it on! Sparkles, sparkles, sparkles…! Prom is the time to wear those big sparkly earrings your mom is always trying to get you to wear or check out the thrift store and you’ll find some really cool vintage and costume jewelry. Use this Claire's coupon for buy 2, get 1 free earrings (no coupon code needed, expires soon).

      Save money on SHOES! Need I say more… If you are wearing a long dress that covers your feet you may not need to purchase shoes. Those who need new shoes can save with a sale or coupon. Get $5 off and free shipping with this Shoe Buy coupon code (expires soon). I would take any excuse to go shoe shopping but, to be able to save money gives your parents insurance that you won’t break the bank!



      Perfect your look with beautiful prom makeup for less! Inquire about complimentary cosmetic applications at department stores and cosmetic boutiques or use a coupon to save when you purchase makeup. Enjoy $3.50 off your $10+ order with this ULTA coupon code (expires 5/12/13).

      If your prom includes dinner, don’t waste your money dining out before the event. Those without an included meal who are planning to dine out before prom can get free restaurant coupon from BeFrugal.com.

Mistral on Urbanspoon

Taste of CHG: Boston Blogger Event

Last night, my mother accompanied me to the Taste of the Columbus Hospitality Group event at Mistral. A classy petite restaurant & bar in the Back Bay. Literally a 5 minute walk from the MBTA station, Mistral, is worth a trip into Boston. The organizations involved in the Columbus Hospitality Group include: Mistral Bistro, Teatro Boston, Sorellina Restaurant, Mooo... Restaurant, Landana Grill, XV Beacon Hotel, The Inn @ St. Botolph. Now here are some pictures captured at the #TasteofCHG rendezvous.

Authentic Mexican food from La Nina
Everyone claims to be "Authentic" but La Nina, puts the "Awe" in "Authentic". If you catch my drift ;) Topped with some spicy salsa, these tortilla chips were the perfect side dish for basically every item at the tasting. These aren't your ordinary family restaurant Chips & Salsa, La nina served freshly fried food for the tasting and it was pretty good.



This dish was nicknamed, in my books, the "Sushi In A Cup". Based with fresh tuna, the crispy wontons and soy sauce added flavor needed to make this feel as if you were scooping sushi ingredients out of  cup. The mixture of soft and hard texture, of the fish and wonton, was a great addition and made a big difference in not only appearance but also taste. 


I'm suddenly overwhelmed with feelings of admiration right now because, the swordfish was last nights all time favorite dish for my mother and I. Props to L'andana for bringing such an exquisite item to the tasting. I usually don't eat the miscellaneous items added on to kabobs. With L'andana's swordfish kabob, I ate everything (Even the vegetables!). 



I am personally not a big fan of peas as a vegetable so, it was hard for me to get a grasp of pea SOUP. Awesome presentation going on here though. Also, awesome mix of ingredients ZUPPA, you have a great group of chef with ya ;)




The #SpringThyme cocktail. Sweet and tangy but the taste from the Thyme throws you off a bit and you quickly get used to it.   



The secret sauce for KRABBY PATTY's!! Oh my, if only spongebob could see me now. Scheduling a meeting with Plankton to discuss the awesome taste, flavor, texture, and ingredients from Mooo's restaurant beef sirloin sliders. When I eat pork it is usually a tough substance to bite and chew due to the new addition of braces in my mouth. That is why when I first approached Mooo's table I looked but did not touch. After a serge of bloggers curiosity, I grabbed a slider and dove in. hahahaha that sounds a bit greedy. I basically happily obliged to forcing my braces to potentially chew a tough meat, much to my dismay this mini burger was not tough at all! The meat was soft and delectable, including the bread and onions. I had no problems eating this with braces and that was a huge surprise to me, kudos Mooo Restaurant.    




I believe I have had dinner at Teatro once, another restaurant involved in Boston's nightlife. Never had I ever had their sausage before and let's just say I had 4 other bloggers running to Teatro's table after hearing my praise for their sausage. Sounds a bit silly but, you would be doing the same if you tasted this sausage with the spicy tomato brodo (Which I thought was more sweet than spicy). 







P.S: I do not mind if you use my photos but, please link back to my blog. If fact, I'm honored!

Love, MsRandomKitty ;)
