THE STRIP HAS A NEW BLOG

Hey readers and fellow subscribers!

I have created a new blog that is all about fitness, health and beauty called: Bodylicious!
Please follow Bodylicious 🙂

http://itsbodylicious.wordpress.com/

I have created a new blog as I felt like I needed somehting to focus on – rather than The Strip which had everything from fashion to health to my life. And seeing how health and fitness is such a big factor in my life now I think there was no better option to pick.
I hope you like my new blog just as much as I have creating it and writing in posts 🙂

See you all at Bodylicious!
xx

I WANT #4

Being a student, I hardly have enough to spend it on the essentials – let alone over things I WANT! This issue of I WANT is focused around things that we can make for ourselves, and cheap finds. DIY fashion ❤

(1) Marc Jacobs “Don’t Fuck with my Shit” gym lock. When I first saw this picture I thought that this was the sickest thing ever! I have looked everywhere online to find on – but can’t; if you know where to get one post a comment PLEASE! I wouldn’t fuck with their shit, but I would steal their lock! (2 & 3) DIY outfits. I love when people add things to an outfit to instantly make it a statement piece, or a one-of-a-kind. I love both pictures 2 and 3! I have seen someone who cut their tank top to match picture 3 – and it looked amazing! (4) Skittles + Vodka = possibly the greatest invention ever? It’s the greatest thing I have ever tasted, and is super easy to make.. plus it looks sick in photos! Yum!! (follow the link on how to make: http://mixthatdrink.com/skittles-vodka-tutorial/) (5) I want this – even though I don’t smoke. It’s hilarious because you always get people asking to borrow your lighter when they only cost a dollar, like don’t be a stingy bitch and go buy one?! This one is only available in the UK and doesn’t ship overseas 😦 Otherwise I would have bought about 5 at $5 each.

Spring

Hey guys,

Explaining again that I have been so run-down by assignments, I have barely had enough time to check/update my blog. Wah! I have 3 assignments due in the next 2 weeks (2 being group work) and it’s kind of stressing me out! It’s exciting to think next term should be my last term of study – if I don’t fail any courses… then the following term I will take on my apprenticeship. I want to work in the creative side of advertising, so any experience would be absolutely amazing.

This month I have consciously made an effort to eat better – and I actually have stuck to my guns! I ordered the book “Skinny Bitch” by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin and actually finished it within a couple of hours. May I just say that this book was one of the most interesting reads! It’s straight-forward, fowl-mouthed and such an eye-opener to the meat and dairy industry. This book promotes a vegan lifestyle, but managed to keep my interest and made me take on a semi-vegan diet (I have really cut down on my meat and dairy and am eating heaps more “raw” foods).

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

I feel like the world has been lifted off my shoulders – today I finally finished and submitted my assignment! I think it was a pretty poor effort and would be happy, to say the least if I actually got over 50% for it. But, yay! Now I can go back to my regular self and do whatever I want – which usually involves sleep, internet and dancing in front of my mirror. Tomorrow night i’m going out with my girls for “S” birthday and we are planning to spend the night at a hotel – so should be one to remember… speaking of which I have no idea what to wear?! Ahh no!
Also thank you to my new subscriber: Talking Questions!

Anyway I will leave this post with a song that has been on non-stop repeat for the past month. Looooovvveeeee it saaaaaaaa much

Omnivore No More

“I could never live without meat” – is a line I have used many times when discussing vegetarian or vegan diets. It’s probably true. I love chicken, lamb, beef, pork, veal, and seafood a lot, and I can not say I have ever eaten a hot dinner that doesn’t contain one of the meats.

I was looking through more of Jenna Mourey’s (AKA Jenna Marbles) diet and exercise YouTube video and discovered she was a vegan… for the most part. So, she is a strict vegan 6/7 days of the week and does moderate exercise – justifying her amazing bod. I went online to look for more information on a vegan lifestyle as all I know is you can’t eat any meat or bi-product of an animal (e.g. eggs, honey, milk).

Jumping online the first thing I searched for was “celebrities that are vegan” and followed a link – oh my god so many people I love share either a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle! The ones that really caught my attention were:
Vegetarians: Brad Pitt (WTF), Anne Hathaway, Brigitte Bardot, Claudia Schiffer, Jack Johnson, Kristen Bell, Natalie Portman, Nelly, Russell Brand, Samuel L. Jackson, Stella McCartney, Tom Delonge, Tommy Lee, Travis Barker, Kate Moss
Vegans: Alanis Morisette, Alicia Silverstone, Alyssa Milano, Andre 3000, Jared Leto, Jason Mraz, Mike Tyson, Portia de-Rossi, Stevo-O, Demi Moore. *I could be wrong on some of these, but it’s what the website said… ha

Honestly it astounded me to count the number of people who live day-to-day without meat… there was like 3 pages FULL of names! Even though I love meat so much, I have decided that I love animals and the thought of a bangin’ body so much more – so beginning on the first day of spring, my vegan lifestyle will begin. I’m not sure for how long or whether I will last, but I am optimistic and excited!

After watching Jenna Mourey’s video on her diet, I thought:“fuck! she gets excited off having whole wheat toast with organic peanut butter for breakfast, and considers it a ‘treat’ to sprinkle some cinnamon on it – *wahh* I want to be her!” So… I went searching for a vegan book to explain thins a bit more (I’d rather a book with everything in it than to search sites) and bought “Skinny Bitch” by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin.  I had heard about this book years ago since Victoria Beckham was snapped carrying it, but knowing now that it is a strict, in your face vegan book I bought it, along with their cookbook “Bitch in the Kitch.” It should arrive between the 30th – the 6th, woo.

Comment if you would like to do this with me – I begin 1st September, first day of Spring. It’s kind of like a spring-cleaning of the body… haha gross -_-

You’re weird… I like you

I love the video blogs (vlog) that this girl posts. She says things that I only think, which makes me laugh out in histerics cause it’s just that fucking funny! This is the first video I saw of hers, and probably is my favourite.

She posts new vlogs every Wednesday, so check out her blog on:
