2012 Superbowl VS. Supermodels

by T

Congratulations to the Giants and their fans for the win of the 2012 Superbowl. It is so exciting the bask in the glory of being a winner, right? But, we know one person that wasn’t so happy after the game…

I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times. My husband cannot f—king throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time.

Supermodel and wife to Patriot’s quarterback Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, was caught on video saying this after being escorted to an elevator after the game. Apparently, this statement was said after being heckled by a Giant’s fans on her way to the elevator.

Honestly, I think Gisele let the game and the taunting get the best of her. To blame some of Brady’s teammates for having slippery fingers is no way to show good sportsmanship, nor make them a fan of you any longer. Hey, there is still next year Mrs. Brady.

Moving on…

Good holy HOTTNESS! Adriana Lima brought the fire to Indianapolis with her not one, but TWO Superbowl ads. This just goes to prove that 2012 Superbowl Ad + hottie VS model= wowzers! Watch her sexy and sweet Teleflora commercial below. Hey, even use it to convince your guy to send you flowers.

But honestly, this little guy is spreading all the Superbowl happiness :-)

“My NYE resolution WAS to” …Eat Healthier

by T

Well, well, well… It seems we have reached the most romantic month of the year– February. That means a month filled with heavenly chocolate-covered everything and romantic candlelit meals. Everything so yummy in your tummy.

But, wait…

Remember on the eve of January 1 when you made a resolution to eat more vegetables and fruits? That resolution to cut out the heavy pasta and bread meals, stop the constant rotation of caffeine and candy bars. Sure, you did good for a couple of days, but temptation and cravings got the best of you soon after. Well, December 31 will come around again, better luck next time.

Your wrong! It is never too late to revisit your new year resolution. Most people make these resolutions with the most extreme starting points that destined them for failure. To go from consuming fast food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to becoming acquainted to a meal that takes more than three minutes to get is a daunting task. It is the equivalent of putting a house cat into a pool– total shock value.

So, let’s think of February as retribution month. Instead of picking up every low-fat, naturally grown, calcium-enriched product at Whole Foods, take your time to transition yourself into your new regiment of eating.

For example, I love to eat out. If one was to look at my bank account, one would see a sequence of restaurant and gas charges. True story. Where I live, the city is full of eclectic, tasty restaurants each with their own flair. It is absolute heaven for any “foodie” that isn’t able to go to the motherland of these restaurants to taste the native food.

Eating out is great and all, but not conducive to the overall health of your body. In America, everything is practically served in ginormous sizes compared to the serving sizes of other countries. We have become used to the super-size value meal with these outrageously high calorie counts.

I believe portion control is one of the most important factors to eating healthier. Portion control conditions your mind and body into eating smaller, more frequent meals. Eating more, smaller-portioned meals will limit your cravings for those giant-sized portion meals. Doing this increases your metabolic rate, as opposed to eating large amounts of food at certain times which slows down metabolism. You can read more about portion control here.

You also want to include more color into those small meals; which means more fruits and veggies. The more colorful, the better!

They are happy to SERVE you! :-)

An important thing to note is that a “meal” does not necessarily mean a plate of food. For example, a snack such as trail mix, an apple, or a smoothie is considered a meal. Just think about it like this: breakfast [snack] lunch [snack] dinner.

  • Start by incorporating healthier options little by little into your daily diet. For instance, instead of having a bag of chips, trade it for a single serving of fruit.
  • It is better to have company. We often cheat on our diets when no one is watching. Having a friend to support or go along with your new diet can keep you on track.
  • Don’t know which fruits and veggies to eat? Pick some of your favorites from the grocery store. For instance, I love grapefruits, so I make sure I have plenty of those around to eat when I get snack cravings.
  • When in doubt, throw away the junk food in your cabinets. If your workplace is full of not-so-healthy food vending options, opt to not bring cash for the day and pack a lunch instead

Remember, February = Retribution month. Get back on it!

Cheers,

T.

This look is from a recent shoot I did. Even though I would rarely ever think to put this ensemble together myself, I loved this look that the stylist on set put together. I am especially fond of the faux fur vest, blue hat and the neck piece. Very posh if I do say so myself! ;-)

What do you Girlys think of this look? Chic or no? Hott or not? Let me know.

Do not forget to follow us on twitter and like us on Facebook!

And as always, we always want to hear your thoughts, give advice, or just drop a line to say “hey!” to us at our email- girlyornot@gmail.com

Girly Tip #55 ‘When life gives you lemons…’

by Desi

Don’t settle for just lemonade…make a Three Berry Lemon Trifle!  In life we never get what we  plan for. Try to make the best out of any situation…it may spark another interest you never thought of before.  ;)

Side note: (Lemons and Berries are the shit together!)

Girlyornot’s S’moresgasbord

by T

What better way to end a chill Monday night than to make s’mores with your best pal? After a talk about life, boys, and our plans for the blog, Desi and I decided to head to the nearest store to make some yummy treats.

We originally wanted to make homemade Twix bars (the recipe found here), but to our demise we could not find bar-shaped shortbread cookies. And yes, waiting an overall time of an hour to make shortbread cookies was a little too intense for us.

245Desi (who I found out does not like caramel anyway) came up with the brilliant idea to make s’mores! Little did she know I have been craving for these sweet little treats for some weeks now. Great idea Desi, I commend you.

So, being that we had no open fire to do s’mores campfire style, we decided to use Desi’s boyfriend’s stove at his house. So what if we didn’t have flannel PJs and cheesy ghost stories? We still got the taste of yummy s’mores goodness that brought me back to my Girl Scout days.
