Hey hey!

I’m Helen (she/her). I’m a singer, dancer, actor, writer, artist, sister, and would-be 4th year college student taking a much-needed break from the State School/academic environment to participate in a year-long dance conservatory.

I am passionate about learning new things, sharing what I know, and doing whatever I can to make someone’s day just a tad bit brighter. I love an Aperol Spritz or an oat milk latte, depending on the scene of course.

When I’m not dancing, I’m usually working on designs for my Etsy shop, watching Schitt’s Creek, or hanging around here!

How to Wallpaper a Fridge

A wallpaper covered fridge.

One thing I knew I wanted to do from the beginning was cover my refrigerator in wallpaper.

5 tips for a better night’s sleep

I’ve always had trouble sleeping. I’ve continued riding the melatonin wave, but some nights it’s just not quite enough. I’m continually on the look out to add to my sleep-aid arsenal, but here are my tried and true tools for a better night’s sleep:

Three books that changed my life: Part 1

A friend of mine recently asked, “Can a book really change your life?” To that, I said “yeah DUH.” The trick is that you have to let it though. These three books aren’t the end all be all or the perfect guide to living life, but after I listened to them, and actually took action…

Therapy at the Disco Playlist(s)!

As I created the playlist Therapy at the Disco, I realized I needed to create a second more current one. The first is full of classic disco bops, but I couldn’t resist compiling a list of jams that would never have been played at Studio 54 (mostly because they weren’t released back then), but still emanate the spirit of disco in one way or another.
