Love Yourself Single

It’s cuffing season y’all. Left and right your friends are falling into soft, cuddly blankets and endless cute debates over which Netflix show to binge on next. And there you are, fifth-wheeling, sticking out like the spare tire on the back of a jeep. 

So what’s a girl to do? Settle for the next boy who crosses your path? It seems tempting, but there’s no surer way to waste your beauty and brains than to settle for the sake of settling- especially because everyone else is doing it.

Instead, what a perfect time to curl up alone with your fave unicorn slippers, a new notebook, and your fave pens and map out the masterpiece that is your best life.  Continue Reading

Then college came and you went off to different towns, football games, bonfire nights. He sent you a hoodie which you wear to bed- and to class when you sleep through your alarm. You send him love notes which get sent less often. Tests start, classes actually require attention and homework. Your social life on campus fills up the rest of your time.

Shoe Karma

If shoes have soles, then they must have karma. Now before you laugh, just consider the religious lengths women go through to save a good pair of pumps.

The other day I was driving through a torrential rainstorm. As my car approached the intersection, I was absolutely amazed how three different women pulled their shoes off and tucked them under their shirts and waded through the water barefooted to keep their sacred steppers from getting wet. These women were determined; nothing of the water variety was going to happen to their babies.

IASF Announces Official Competition Divisions and Scoring System

Memphis, TN – The International All Star Federation (IASF), the leading organization for international Club Cheer and Dance teams, has released its official list of competition divisions for the global All-Star community. The IASF also said it plans to release its new scoring system by October 15, 2017.

The IASF, formerly part of the US All Star Federation, became a separate entity in 2016 with the goal of providing common divisions and scoring for the international community. The newly developed competition divisions and scoring system are designed to promote consistency and growth across the globe. The new divisions, now available at www.IASFworlds.com, closely resemble current IASF Worlds divisions in team size and score sheet. Now event producers around the globe will have the opportunity to add these divisions to their existing competitions.

The new IASF Scoring System will serve as the standard for international All-Star competition and will allow developing countries more opportunities to enter the competitive field. The system is designed to encourage the incorporation of creativity and individual cultures into routine choreography.

“The International All Star Federation is dedicated to the worldwide expansion of our sport, and we believe the introduction of these new standards will provide the structure and consistency needed to open the door for more international competition worldwide,” Les Stella, IASF Secretary-General.
