I’ve been a huge fan of Goscinny & Uderzo’s Asterix & Obelix! A lot of people seem to not know who these two courageous Gauls are – but I grew up  reading pretty much all the comics! If you’ve missed out, here’s a sneak peak at a cartoon I found on youtube in ENGLISH! It’s difficult to find English versions since most of the series was in French, except I remember being able to watch the movie Asterix & Obelix and Cleopatra as produced in English. That was thrilling! So, here’s the full episode of Asterix and the Viking. Enjoy! :)

Happy Birthday Mom, I may not have any means to give you anything except my heart on my paw because I love you!

Happy Birthday Mom, I may not have much... but here's my heart on my paw, I hope it's enough. I love you Momma!-RickRoss

Thank you to all the amazing people that greeted me and are still continuing to greet me today! I’m not much of a birthday person, but I guess I feel extra emotional today since this has been a very tough year for me. I truly appreciate all the people that remembered me today! I also want to make special mention to my wonderful boyfriend for his amazing surprise to kick start my birthday at midnight! Here’s to a great day because of amazing people who truly make birthdays a reason to celebrate! <3



Alice in Wonderland

Disney’s Alice in Wonderland was one interpretation of Lewis Caroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, now it seems another go at this strange tale is in the works with a famed and somewhat’quirky’ director taking the reins for this film set to release in 2010. Controversy surrounds Lewis Caroll’s state of mind during the period in which he wrote these stories, one such rumor was that he was tripping out on acid, or that it was no fault of his own but rather the opium based medication he took for his migraines. Who knows, really? Yet, who better to take this twisted tale of a young girl who journey’s down into a rabbit hole to a ‘Wonderland’ of sorts than Tim Burton! Creator of Edward Scissor Hands, The Corpse Bride, Nightmare Before Christmas, as well as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – hence Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter – with an all star cast, and different styles of filming in the works to create ‘magic’.

Taking the tale 10 years later than the day Alice first found herself in ‘Wonderland’, this movie has the potential to either be incredible amazing, or too weird for its own good. Yet, I have yet to see Tim Burton fail me, irregardless of being scared out of my wits as a child watching The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride, I found myself finding fond feelings towards these strange characters, as much as I’m sure the rest of the world felt with Edward Scissorhands. Expectations arise, to be both amazed, frightened and awed to see Alice in Wonderland in a whole new way!

Here are a few pictures, and one of my favorite poems of all time, “Jabberwocky” (and there WILL be a Jabberwocky!!!) by Lewis Caroll from Through the Looking Glass:

Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought –
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

“And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!’
He chortled in his joy.


`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

H&M x Jimmy Choo

All the angels in heaven sang when girls got word of this collaboration set to strike on Nov. 14th, 2009. You may have Terminator 2 on your calenders boys, but every girl is circling this date on theirs. Famous for their collaborations with world-renowned designers, H&M tips the boiling point by collaborating with Jimmy Choo – although they stress about it being not just shoes and accesories, but also a clothing line as well as menswear (I guess some ‘men’ will be circling the date too ;p) – lets be real, I think it’s safe to say the first thing that will need an extra army of security will be the shoe section. <3

Serious, serious, serious shopping!

Gordon Ramsay

If you know me, then you’d know i ADORE Gordon Ramsay. I know he’s had some trouble lately & that most people think he’s an asshole but I am a complete fan. I have become obsessed with his recipes – they are simple and they WORK! I learned how to poach fish because of him, and I felt a complete thrill when I cooked warm salad, fish & tomato and kesong puti salad out of pure inspiration from his show, “F Word”. I personally think everyone in “Hell’s Kitchen” is an idiot for not being able to follow Ramsay, and is actually my least favorite show of his.  However, my all time favorite amongst his slew of shows is “Kitchen Nightmares” because you see him care, even if he’s screaming and yelling – you feel his frustration and you see how much he does for people who are struggling. Part of my wishlist this year is his cookbook “Fast Food”.

I <3 Gordon Ramsay. He’s funny, he’s witty and most of all an amazing chef! Cheers to Gordon Ramsay! Hear! Hear!

Getting Rid of Those Inner Thighs!

Every girl has her problem point, and mine are my inner thighs! I’ve been pretty athletic all my life, but there are just some parts of your body that need an extra push. Lately I’ve been spinning a lot, and have started intense workouts on my inner thighs. I’ve been doing the machine at almost 10-15 different weighted reps, and do those in 3 sets. To add to my workouts however, I decided to research and find more exercises so i can really ‘kill’ those inner thighs, get them lean and toned. So, here are a few exercises I’ll be adding to my workout:
