Ballet Beautiful Buzz #13

Here is a roundup of the things we are currently loving:

READ: Motherhood

In honor of Mother's Day we are enjoying reading all about Motherhood. The Cut launched a series called: NEW MOM, which explores the brilliant, terrible, wonderful, confusing realities of first-time motherhood. It is filled with lovely stories that discuss all the various aspects of being a new mom. On our Ballet Beautiful blog, Mary Helen shares her experience with modern motherhood, life as a mom of three and her take on "having it all." Whether you’re a new mom yourself, have grown kids, or just baby curious, there's always something interesting and magical to learn about the special connection of being a mom.

BEAUTY: Onstage Looks for a Night Out

Looking for a fun way to add a touch of glamour to your next night out? Mary Helen shares her on stage beauty look in three easy steps. Add a sleek updo, pin a flower in your hair, and pair your leotard with a full length ball gown, pants or even a sleek pencil skirt for true Ballet Beautiful Style. Just because you're not performing on stage doesn't mean you can't add a touch of ballerina chic for your special date night!

WATCH: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

This is such a great show! It takes place in the late 1950s in New York City. All of the costumes and set designs are incredible and look so true to the era that it feels like you are magically transported to that time period. The show focuses on Mrs. Maisel who has everything she has ever wanted -- the perfect husband, two kids and an elegant apartment on New York's Upper West Side. Her seemingly idyllic life takes a surprising turn when she discovers she has a talent for standup comedy. We love that this show focuses on a strong female character who starts living life on her own terms. It is a funny, entertaining, thoughtful show that everyone will enjoy.

MAKE: Spring Salads

Spring time means warmer weather, fresh produce and delicious vegetables. One of our favorite go-to meals in this new season is salads; they’re healthy, refreshing, and easily customizable. We’ve curated some of Mary Helen’s favorite salad recipes to give you some ideas. All of these salads are full of fresh and nutritious ingredients and are the perfect meal or side dish to keep you looking and feeling your best. And most importantly, they’re delicious!
