Dance Show at Panama's National Theatre

Tuesday November 27, 2012

Today I had such a fun night! But first, lets talk about my new obsession: this leather skirt! I bought it at Forever 21 during our trip to Orlando, and I've been wanting to pair it with just about anything ever since ;)

Ok, now on to the big plans of the night! Today I went to a Dance Show to see my sister act and dance as one of the main characters of the show. How cool is that!?!

The show took place at Panama's National Theater down in Casco Viejo (a historic area of Panama). I absolutely LOVE that theater because everything is decorated so glamorously.

The show brought back lots of good memories from the time I use to dance myself. For those of you who don't know, I danced ballet, jazz, tap, and modern for 9 years when I was younger. Out of all the dance types, I particularly loved tap (and I was pretty good at it too!). 

Here are a couple of photos of tonight's show:

Seeing all of these dances made me want to dance again as well. But the truth is that I don't really have the time (or energy) for dancing anymore. Or maybe I do? We will see, I'm still thinking about it ;)

Aaaaaanyway, the best part of the show was definitely my sister's performance!! She acted and danced as an old grandmother, which was one of the two main characters of the entire show. 

My sister played her role so well and kept the audience entertained and laughing. She added a delightful comic relief to the entire show.

Congrats Annie, you were fantastic!

Relaxing by the Pool

Here are a couple more photos of our relaxing weekend at Bijao beach! Today we decided to relax by the pool dipping our feet in the water and making silly jokes.

I haven't worn this dress in sooooo long (almost two years now!), so I was happy to wear it today. I really love the shape and the bright colors, however it is too short for me to wear on a regular day (but perfect length for the beach!).

Hope you are all having a great week!

Rainy Days and Fondue Dinner

Beach Weekend Beach Weekend  

Saturday November 24, 2012

This past weekend, we decided to take some time off and relax at a nearby beach called Bijao. Its always such a delight to disconnect from work and all the noise from the city, and just kick back and relax.

Beach Weekend Beach Weekend  

Today was a very rainy, windy, and somewhat chilly day; so I spent most of the day relaxing at the house drinking hot coco and reading fashion magazines.... aahh, the good life ;)

At night, we decided to try something different by cooking our own food using a Fondue set! Basically each person has a plate of raw meat, chicken, etc. that they cook in a pot of hot oil on the center of the table. It was soooo much fun because we kept stealing each others food and fighting over the cooked pieces... haha.

Beach Weekend Beach Weekend  

I definitely felt very relaxed and rested by the end of the day, it was exactly what I needed!

Panama's First Black Friday

Summer Fashion Summer Fashion  

Friday November 23, 2012

For the first time ever, Panama decided to celebrate Black Friday!! YAI! Many stores had sales and special discounts today, so of course I hit the mall early in the morning. I was hoping to buy a new camera and video camera (since mine got stolen), but they actually ran out before I even got there... Bummer!

**Note: I kind of liked these photos out of focus! They kind of look artistic somehow ;)

I still enjoyed walking around the mall with my mom and sister though. I did score a new jumpsuit and some accessories on sale, so it wasn't all that bad :)

Did you do any Black Friday shopping this year?
