Summer Acting Camps 2019 Continued

I can't believe we have only two more weeks left of school. 
Summer is quickly approaching and the question that most parents have is: what are we going to do with the kids? 
Many kids go off to summer camp. I know my son did back when he was 1o. We quickly learned he is NOT an outdoor kid!
Ever since he was 4 years old, Aaron knew he wanted to be in the entertainment industry. Do you have a child like this? Constantly putting on "a show" for friends and family? 
If you do, then you will want to consider Dallas Young Actors Studio! It's a fun place to be. Kids as young as 5 train to be professional actors and go on to get hired in Hollywood. Check out the success stories on the website at

We have been so impressed during the last three years that Aaron has been training here at Dallas YAS. 
But the best part is that these young people learn not only to act in front of the camera 
but behind the camera too. Dallas YAS has a fantastic film makers program. Students learn every facet of the film making industry and even submit their films to different film festivals. 

Dallas YAS offers film making camps as well. The school is the only one in the nation offering this type of professional training for young people. So if you are looking for a place to have your child explore and expand his or her imagination and creativity-this is the place to be. From one mom to another, you HAVE to check this place out!
Until next time

Film Making Right Here in Dallas - Teen and Kids Acting Camps

One of the great things about Dallas is the variety of activities that are available for our kids to do. For years, my son, Aaron and I searched for a great place for him to learn acting. 
You have heard me rave about the Dallas Young Actors Studio in Dallas. Here, they train children from as young as 7 up to 17 and even adults! 
So many success stories have come out of here. You can read all about those at the DYAS website
The Summer Acting Camps are almost full and one of the best things about these camps is that the kids get to participate in every aspect of film making/TV taping.
From the actors to the film production crew, this place offers young people the opportunity to learn and grow and use their imagination! They can go on to successful careers in Hollywood making films, whether in a film crew, lighting, sound mixing-even make up!
Check out the video for some behind the scenes footage of these camps! 

And here are some shots from an actual filming

If you have a gifted child, this is the place for them!
contact them directly through the website or call 
In the meantime, come and follow Aaron Martinez, a rising actor from right here in Dallas. Show your support by following him on Instagram :)

Stylish Looks for Spring- Wood Watches

JORD watches* sponsored post
Unique Timepieces for a lifetime

It’s spring! We have some beautiful weather here in the Dallas area and we are so thankful for it!

I’ll be posting some cute Spring outfits in the next coming days. And with cute outfits comes the need to accessorize. I love accessories. They are crucial in putting an outfit together. I like bracelets, earrings, a cute hat and even a simple piece like a watch. The nice people at JORD watches sent me a beautiful watch to wear and share with you guys! I’ll be posting some shots on my IG with me wearing it :) I picked the beautiful style called Cora Polaris.
Three years of imagination & painstaking design have led to a new, classy, more beautiful alteration of the celebrated Cora Collection. Hand-seated Swarovski crystals encircle the vibrant 34mm dial to depict the stars of the Little Dipper. Polaris shines brightly in the northern sky, to guide you through each hour of the day. And beautifully polished metals surround subtle wood accents to bring elegance into existence.
The Cora is more than a timepiece, it’s a beautiful example of just how much our universe has to offer.

I wore it recently on date night and it is just stunning.

You can check it out some more on their website: here
They also carry Apple watch bands :)
I'm know I'll be getting some of those too! 
These beautiful wood watches make great gifts. Think Father's Day and graduation.
And to share my excitement with all of you, the good people of JORD want to give away $100 towards the watch of your choice!! Yup, it's a giveaway :)
please post a comment below to let me know you entered :)
Follow me on instgram 
and follow Jord Watches

I'll be back soon with some cute outfits to share with you

I was not compensated for this post. I received a watch compliments of JORD Watches but all opinions are my own.

Dallas Acting and Film Making School

School is almost out! Can you believe that? 
Before you know it there won't be the morning rush we are all experiencing right now. Just the mellow pace of summer. Ahhh....can you feel it? :)
I love waking up without an alarm clock and just taking it easy on certain days when I can work from home. As a working, single, mom I treasure these last few days I have with my baby...even if he will be 17 soon! 
One thing we are both looking forward to is his summer acting camp. This year he will be doing two weeks instead of one. These are actual TV pilots shot on a soundstage in Dallas. You've heard me talk up the acting school before but I'm here to share that there is a film making division too. That's right. Right here in Dallas. If you're son or daughter is interested in becoming a professional camera man, being part of a film production crew in Hollywood or anywhere else, this is the place to send them! I am impressed with the level of professionalism these kids amass while training at Dallas Young Actors Studio. Kids can learn acting techniques and train to be film producers, directors, be a part of film crews, and much more. 
Do you want to check it out? Please visit the website to schedule a free tour. 
Several success stories have originated right there at Dallas YAS. One success story is Molly Quinn who went on to star in Castle! 

And Kenton Duty who was discovered at Dallas Young Actors Studio and went on to Disney's Shake It Up!
Aaron continues his training at the studio and is evolving into a well rounded actor. He has learned so much from the awesome acting coaches, including Linda Seto. 
He has trained in "green screen", improv, and much more!
We are excited and grateful to have Aaron continue on his journey to become a professional actor. 
Until next time

Countdown to Summer Camp and TV Pilot - Hollywood

Happy Easter everyone! 

It's been a super busy week with work, school and other activities. 
Aaron is busy prepping for several scripts they are learning at Dallas Young Actors Studio.
He's excited to be in the TV Pilot this summer.
The Rising Stars Summer Camp over at his acting school is an awesome opportunity for any aspiring actor to get the professional training needed for their break into Hollywood. So many young actors have been successfully signed from the Dallas YAS school, it's unreal! 
You can check out the website above to read all about those success stories. 
But it's not all luck! There's hard work and training involved in becoming a professional TV/film actor. Think SNL on a local level.
At Dallas YAS, students get that professional training from someone who is actually in the business of ..well...showbiz! 
You can read more about the school's founder here in this article at 

We will be back next week with some updates on Aaron's journey into Hollywood!  In the meantime, don't forget to follow Aaron on his Instagram located on the top right over there >>>
