Cirque Du Soleil is Six Pack Central

The “Situation” may have abs and an act, but these performers have muscles everywhere plus actual talent you have to see to believe. The past few days I had the chance to see a couple Cirque du Soleil shows I’ll never forget.

Exactly a year ago the city of San Francisco was celebrating the Giants winning the World Series. But what’s the second best thing that could be going on at AT&T Park? Cirque du Soleil! It’s back now showing through December 18th with the new show “Totem” that is totally worth seeing.

I went a few nights ago on a chilly fall evening…

 Although “Totem” is a traveling show, it’s one of the best I’ve ever seen.

By day, the Giants stadium parking lot is home to the big circus tent. It doesn’t matter what section  
you buy seats, you’re not too far from the stage.
At night it transforms into the Grand Chapiteau. This is the food and gift area, I couldn’t
take pics during the actual show

I wanted to share my new favorite updo for rainy cool evenings when I know my hair will get frizzy.
I’ve seen celebs like JLO and Kourtney Kardashian wearing the high bun lately.

It needed more hairspray & time, but here’s how to do it in FIVE minutes:
1. Pull hair in a high ponytail
2. For volume, tease and back comb it until it’s poofy
3. Form and twist into a bun. Use bobby pins to keep hair in place
(See FoxyLocksExtensions high fashion messy bun tutorial here)
The next day I flew off to Vegas for business & a little fun icon smile

Back to “Totem”
Totem by Cirque Du Soleil 007
I don’t want to give too much away, but this was one of the acts. You can see more here
Cirque+Du+Soleil+Totem
There is a total of 779 costume pieces in the wardrobe for this show.
It’s good to be back after a Cirque du Soleil bender the past few days. Speaking of bending, if you’ve never seen a Cirque show, it’s unbelievable how the performers contort their bodies andTotem” shows some skin. Tastefully, of course. (Think buff surfer guys doing stunts and women in bikini tops spinning 50ft in the air to name a few.)
Sidenote- Not only is Cirque fun for families, it’s so romantic with that special someone or a midweek date during the holiday season. And with the NBA lockout, there’s no reason not to go! Tell your guy he’ll still see an arena full of physical specimens that not only take it to the hoop, they jump through hoops of fire. icon wink
Do you like Cirque du Soleil?
If so, what was your favorite show?
Have a great week!

  1. My boyf is originally from Cali and goes to Vegas every couple years…I’ve told him I wanna go and see a CDS show! Unfortunately he doesn’t seem remotely into it :( I’ll have to just drag him there, I’m sure once he got there he’d be wowed!

    You look gorgeous in these pics…love the updo!

  2. Love LOVE that up do! I have that French Connection dress, looks oh so fab on u. Have given me the inspiration to take it out of hiding. Hope u had fun in Vegas, jealous.

  3. @Aimee L- I think your BF would really like the CDS and there’s so many in Vegas. Take him to “O” or I heard Love is really good too. Thanks!
    @Simply Bubbleicious- Thanks for the compliment and how funny you have that same dress. I think I’ll wear it over tights in SF. Definitely take it out of hiding :)

  4. amazing looks, i love your hair!

  7. 7eventh Letter says:

    You look great!!! I love that black with the layer of Gold. Ironically, I went to Vegas earlier this year and wore a shirt with a similar effect! While there, I saw Zumanity being that that’s the only Cirque du Soleil show I’ve seen – I have to say that’s my favorite! LOL! It was a great show.

    thanks for visiting my blog now following ;-)

  19. i wish i can also see them live!

  20. Ohh I’ve heart great reviews about Cirque du Soleil, they’ve been to my country, but sadly not in my city. Everyone’s raving about their acrobatics and the stunts are breathtaking (so they say haha). It’s great you were able to see two of their shows. And thank you so much for sharing how you styled your hair, I’ve always wanted to try that messy bun myself.

    Cheers,

  21. I have seen a Cirque show or two and they are beyond stunning. Loving your red top and messy bun.
    Can’t tell you how much I love Vegas. Not for the gambling (I don’t enjoy it) but the shows, the shopping, the eating, the rides and the pools. I hope you had a great time.
    Cheers,
    Bre

  22. I was able to see the Cirque in Disney – i loved it. I admire the fact that you can have a cirque and throw a hell of a show without any animals.

  23. I was just in Vegas too! Love Cirque shows. I didn’t see one on this trip, but my favorite would have to be Ka.

    Have a good one!
