Disney Gone Wild: Springbreakers

Boooooooooooooooooooooobs. Now that I have your attention… Last week, I won tickets to see Springbreakers for a screening last night  before it hits theatres on Friday. (Thanks SceneCreek!) I took my sister, because I know both of us Tumblrheads had wanted to see this movie for a while. Springbreakers inspired some major buzz at last…

If You’re A Gym Person

  …I have a question for you. Last night was leg day at the gym. (Thrilling, amirite?!) Normally I work out in the ladies section because I felt more comfortable up there at the beginning of my training. But last night, I thought to myself, “I used to love working out with all the boys!…

The Hurricane That Is My Life

It’s been 11 days since I’ve posted my last blog post. Miss me? That is how crazy my life has been. And it’s not slowing down anytime soon! Updates:  I’m four weeks out from my competition (my coach says it’s three. I think she’s not counting my days of zombiedom during the last week before…

Throwback Thursday: The Gap

Yep, that’s right. THE GAP. Man, I used to fangirl so hard — before fangirling was coined — for The Gap. I remember the year it came to Canada — my 6th grade friends who didn’t travel to the States often freaked the hell out. “ZOMG, GAP KIDS, GUYS!” My entire class probably dreamed about…

Ten Perfect Songs

Last week there was a post on Thought Catalog about ’10 Perfect Songs’ (subjective, of course.) This is just a nice, fluffy post – so let those brain cells rest and rock out with your…socks off. The First Single You Ever Purchased: Jennifer Paige – Crush  (Really only bought this CASSETTE, because she shared the…

A Different Kind of Fitspo

Happy Monday everyone! (It’s happy for me because today is a high-carb day. Don’t hate me, please.) So yesterday I had my posing workshop for my competition. I was nervous and excited: I felt like it was a first day of school, because I didn’t know anyone going to this workshop and wasn’t sure what…

Progress is…

Being able to destroy five egg whites and two whole eggs in one sitting and be totally fine with it. (I used to struggle to eat my six egg white – 1/2 cup oats breakfast.)  Now it’s kid stuff! Ramped up my cardio AGAIN – two-45-mins-a-days. YAY. 5 weeks to go. Yikes! I have my…

1. Seek Eye Contact… Kind of This is a common occurrence for shy folks — look at person you’re trying to flirt with — they’re not looking? Look away. Try again. Still not looking at you? Look away. Again? Yes! Ah, there’s successfully been eye contact made! It’s happening RIGHT NOW —…

You’re a Copper Kind of Friend

Did you know texting was technically invented in 1920? Well, neither did I until I did a quick Wikipedia search (love you, Wiki!). It was called a telex (which sounds way cooler than text message) and it was sent by RCA Communications (today’s Verizon) in New York to London. The first SMS text message –…

No Carb Day: Dazed and Unenthused

It’s cold. It’s dark. It is: THE DAY THERE WAS NO CARBS. I’ve always had low carb days during the week. But I’ve never had a zero carb day until the past few weeks. Now that I’ve started dialing in, I have a few no carb days a week. But Sunday is probably the worst…

Toronto’s Cupcake Sweetheart: Prairie Girl Bakery

Birthdays: cake, presents, pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey, loot bags. Those were the days! (Although, I never was one for pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey: I have terrible directional skills with my eyes open, let alone closed.) So it’s an old friend’s birthday and I wanted to get her a cupcake. They’re cute and — dare I say, have been trendy —  for the…
