  • Hey!

    Ok…What is inspiring you NOW. I mean like RIGHT NOW. Don’t over think it. Just spit it out.

    Here are 5 things that are inspiring me NOW off the top of my head:

    1. California weather (it’s been crazy nice, like lay on the beach nice-in January!)

    Here’s an iphone shot I took the other night.

    2. People with STYLE! (I must look like a stalker, but at the dog park, I stare at some of the girls around me that have such funky style…oh and I’m in my running shorts!) They inspire me to think outside the box a bit. Working from home, I can get complacent with my “style” or what I put on everyday. I want to put more effort into it.

    This collage of last years Coachella goers which pretty much sums up LA style. It’s very hip, funky, chill, relaxed, somewhat vintage. (My target running shorts just don’t compare!!! haha)

     

    3. Raw healthy eating.

    I have been pretty darn good these days with sticking to raw, but still far from a 100% raw diet. But- I try to I incorporate as many fruits and veggies into my life as possible and make an effort to stay away from fat and Dairy! (Meat isn’t even an issue, I am SO over it!)
    I LOVE This video on how food resembles our body parts…

     

    4. My work. (ahh, what else is new?) When I have time-I listen to other voice actors demo’s and I just love it, there is soo much amazing talent out there. When I’m in the car-I turn up the commercials. When I am in voiceover classes- I am a learning sponge.(I don’t always hear the things I want- they do NOT sugar coat anything, but I know it is making me stronger)

    Here is a screen shot of my voices.com feedback page. Besides 1 other voice talent, I have the most amount of 5 star ratings for female voice talent on the whole site!! 118 5-star reviews baby!

    5. My wedding photos! They were taken by Matt and Janna Photography in Saskatoon. I’m just really inspired at how they captured it all. I don’t want to bombard you with kissing photos, haha, but I love LOVE,  I love my husband and I am so thrilled with our pictures and just getting to relive the day through photographs.

    I heart him.

    OK. Well, artsy fartsy me has spoken. This is me..tonight…5 things that are inspiring me NOW. What is inspiring you? It can seriously be ANYTHING. That’s the beauty of life. Life is what we make it, we can see it however we want…

    Maybe your pillow is inspiring you? hee hee… night night.

  • Hello!

     

    Who used to watch Married with Children? I did! haha

     

    Love their sofa!

    Couldn’t help but post a few more wedding pics. The photogs that shot our wedding say our album is DONE and I CAN”T wait to see it. I will post pics as soon as I have them, but for now you get my Rebel shots.

    Me with 2 future Bride-to- be’s!! Diana is engaged to Sean! And my mom…well her and Richard sure make a nice couple! lol

    Me with my sweet, loving, adorable Sisters In Law. They look gorgeous, I love their dresses, shoes, shrugs, red lips! Love it all.

    Saskatoon Inn Wedding, Winter

    I freaking LOVE my wedding shoes and I’m so happy I found them. Garter… mom bought it, so I had to wear it.. haha, love you mom! It was a fun accent.

    Moments before I walked down the isle. Marianne was trying to keep us separate.

    Amazing moment. My brothers walked me down the isle, arm in arm.

    My mom and her precious grandson!

    Enough wedding talk! Let’s talk about Jasper. Little guy turned 1 last week. Here is my bro and him at his 1st birthday party. Sooo exciting. I wish I could have been there.

    Lil angel.

    Precious.

    In other news here, It was a good day. I love waking up, checking my phone and having work. Being a voiceover artist is like being unemployed every day, until you get hired for something. Then your back to being unemployed, until the next job.. Mind you, I usually am not “unemployed” for too long, but I still gotta keep rocking those auditions, have a quick turn around for my clients and stay on top of the game.

    I eat my greens during the week to keep my immune system in top shape (on the weekends it’s Mexican, lol)

    Here we have some pea shoots I got from the Farmers Market, I added them to my green smoothie this morning.

    I don’t have my fancy citrus juicer with me, it’s back in Vancouver, but this plastic juicer has been amazing.

    Bought Painter a new toy this weekend. Man, he LOVES it! He brings it up behind me and drops it beside me, trying to get me to play with him.


    I took my booty out for a jog today today. We live in a neighbourhood with some BIG hills, so I had fun cursing as I ploughed my way up!

    Promise I will either do yoga or go for another jog tomorrow! How’s your fitness routine going? Mom went to Zumba today! Go mom.

     

    Have a great night everyone!

  • Hello!

     

    How was your weekend? Hope it was nice!

    Today we were running some errands and low and behold I noticed a Farmers Market on a trendy LA street called Larchmont Blvd.

    Have to stop and smell the roses….


    They had fresh, organic produce and tons of samples from all sorts of different vendors. (hummus, nuts, breads, popcorn, jams, skin care, that kind of thing)

    I LOVED seeing all the produce, even in the middle of “winter”. Painter was NOT welcome, lol. Service dogs exempt…. umm, don’t think he could pull that off.

    larchmont farmers market, no dogs allowed

    We apparently drove through the Hollywood Media District.

    Speaking of media, Mike and I were doing a little media ourselves for a tv video branding company. I hosted their intro video. Mike filmed. Dynamic Duo, lol

    In the office, here is where the sales staff sits…except we were in on a weekend, so the office was quiet!

    Drive by on Hollywood Blvd. Someone was rapping, or dancing, or something. Sure drew a crowd.

    Chinese Theatre

    graumans chinese theater

    These lights can mean 2 things….EITHER:

    A) someone forgot to take down their Christmas decorations…

    OR

    B) MEXICAN!!!!

    B) was the winner!

    Now it’s time to dive back into this:

    I’ve been yoga-ing and jogging this past week and I plan on continuing that momentum!

    I’m excited for the week ahead..full of pure potential. I hope you are ready for an amazing week!

    Here we go! Be in touch soooooooooooooon

  • Did I spell Exercising right? It’s on of those words I’ve spelt wrong my whole life, other words that have been a challenge for me are ridiculouspractice, nessisary or Accommodate. However…writing this blog for the past 1.5 years has made me a better SPELLER! Woo Hoo! They should have an adult spelling bee… (or maybe not). I write the most simple words ever. Never anything fancy like supercalafragilisticexpeealidocious! haha

    Moving on… or shall I say moving on UP… a whole wack of stairs!. There are many stairs in my neighbourhood. This is me standing half way up the set. Looking down and what I just came up….

     

    And then looking up at how far I had to go. I felt stuck in the middle of heaven and hell… (I’m on fire tonight folks)

    Basically I want to check in with you on your exercising….the brain…and the body. Are you moving that sexy body on a daily basis? Are you learning, reading or keeping your mind stimulated on things of interest to you? Hobbies? Interests? A Passion? I know I have to remind myself of this often and I bet you are doing amazing, I just wanted to write it down, mainly to keep me motivated.. (Does that make sense?)
    Hear me out…. If I could, I would eat mexican everyday and always stay IN my comfort zone. BUT, what fun is that? I have been taking tons of classes (for you guessed it, voice) which in result is upping my game. ALSO… I’ve been moving my butt…

    Here I just walked to the dog park… easy… but to get there, yes I took those stairs above!

    I’m grateful I can at least walk outside right now…This is what my hometown looks like today: -40 some degrees out there!!!

    And we’re in t-shirt weather….

    At the dog park today. Painter LOVES it. It’s like Disneyland for him everyday.

    I also had an awesome yoga class today…

    This picture below was not my class, but I am telling you… this yoga class was the BUSIEST class I have been to in my entire life. There was a line up out the door, but they just made room for everyone, they even had to take out furniture out of the yoga studio, it was nuts…. but the OMS were magical! Like make your arm hairs raise. Powerful stuff.

    So ya, there ya have it. Using this brand new year to move and learn. (just don’t ask me to spell) It’s been slow getting there, but I feel like I’m back in my groove. I went for 2 runs in the past week too and my foot is feeling better! YA!

     

    I hope your having a great week! I CAN SEE YOUR LIGHT (aka- Namaste)

  • Hello!

    Happy Monday:) I started my Monday off right with a 6am yoga class!  I’m going to go again tomorrow morning. Got home from yoga and wrote out my morning pages in my journal (my 3 pages of stream of conscience ramble), listened to Morning Coach and even did a mini 5 minute meditation. It was all such a powerful and uplifting start to the day.

    Then it was Vitamix time!

    Bring on the KALE.

    Frozen berries, 2 bananas juice of a lemon, ginger and a wack of kale!

    Vroom vroom, let’s go for a spin.

    “Hello, my name is healthy <3″

    green shake

    I did a pile of auditions today, and took a little break tooooo… You guesssed it the dog park. On my walk there though, I saw some birds… some beautiful birds of paradise and….

    Roosters?! Seriously this would be just like walking down any street in your neighbourhood, but then, oh look- behind your neighbours fence is a bunch of chicks.

    Hey, at least the owners don’t need an alarm clock.

    He gazed into each others eye….

    Eeek!

    So did anyone watch the awards show yesterday? (Golden Globes yesterday?) I didn’t watch them, but I saw this picture of Charlize Theron online and I just always think she is so gorgeous!

    What a great hairstyle too!! Here is step by step how her “MANE man” did it (get it? Mane man…damn I’m funny)
    Here’s Anglieri’s step-by-step for creating the look:

    * “I started with already dry, naturally waved hair, and curled small sections with a 2” curling iron to enhance the volume and texture. I used the larger iron because I didn’t want to curl her hair, but to refine the natural wave. This helped create an effortless transition from her natural look to red carpet.”
    *“Once finished, I lightly misted the curled sections with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray. After a few minutes, I completely brushed through her hair with a Moroccanoil Ionic Ceramic Paddle brush to eliminate any trace of separation, for a natural, clean look with a romantic, soft texture.”
    *“Next, I swept the hair to the left and made three sections. I pulled and rolled the first two into a loose bun and pinned them, working with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray throughout the process to control and hold the hair in place. I released and wrapped the last section under and around the bun and pinned it. Finally, I adjusted and freed strands in the bun looked so it looked even more unstructured, messy, and a bit wispy.
    *“To finish the look, I sprayed the hair with Moroccanoil Frizz Control, the key product to making this look work and photograph well. Moroccanoil Frizz Control made any flyways disappear, gave me more control of the hair and the look of the bun, and kept everything frizz-free and in place through the evening. I then placed the Cartier diamond headband into the style.”

    I think I’m going to “attempt” this look tomorrow. I’ll try it and take a picture for you! If you try it, please send it my way:)

     

    And there ya have it! All in a days work. What’s new with you???
