Work It

02Dec09

Buongiorno bellissimas! I’ve had a packed morning already. Ya know, just scoping out the Jerz Guids while ellipticalling and abbing. It was thrilling. Unfortunately, I need to practice my cell-picture skills and don’t have any pictures for you…yet.

But let’s travel back to yesterday. I normally like to relay the day in chronological order, but there is something I cannot get out of my mind. Did anyone watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last night? Did anyone feel awesome after watching? I didn’t.

If anyone recalls, I was going to audition for the show back in October and never did. One of the reasons why is that I do not want to have to worry about something other than the health of my body. I don’t want to start to think I should look exactly like the other models, consumed by thoughts of whether my stomach is toned enough or my rump is firm enough . Because here’s what: It’s ridiculous. It doesn’t matter. That’s not what I want to be remembered for.

What I do find inspiring, however, is the confidence exuded by the women on the runway. What I propose is that we all work it like that, no matter what. Whether you’re 5’1″ or 5’10”, size A or size Z, WORK. IT. OUT.

Thanks for letting me vent. ๐Ÿ™‚

Back to more SnackFacey things. I slept in Tuesday till 6:30am, got my face on and got dressed and bossy for the day:

Working it...for myself.

I donned a luscious sweater by Free People and skinny/girdle jeans:

Love the knit.

On the feet were a pair of flats that look good from the top…:

But have holes in the soles.

Breakfast-to-go tasted exactly like a banana nut muffin:

Try this if you haven't.

Odwalla peeps are knocking my ballet flats off (I wasn’t wearing socks)! Not only are the flavors spot-on, but the texture is also dreamy. It’s not as chewy or dense as a Clif, and it has little crunchy bits throughout. Phenom.

Mistakenly, I tried to give Dunkin’ Donuts coffee a chance. I will never understand why America runs on Dunkin’. It tasted like ashy dirt water.

I was super busy at work all day. Between little assignments, I have this huge list of 60+ chefs to call to see whether they’re entering a certain contest. The phone is something I choose not to use most of the time, unless it’s to talk to MamaJ or Muffin. This assignment definitely has made me grow a pair.

Lunch should have been good, but I was left so unsatisfied I was hungry all afternoon:

Apple and tupperware in the morning light.

I packed a lovely sandwich of Ezekiel, hummus and cucumber:

And promptly took it apart post-picture.

I’d much rather eat the pieces of bread separately instead of desperately trying to taste the hummus between two slices of dry bread. Ya dig?

I worked it all afternoon and especially worked it on my walk to the train home:

Felt like a tourist taking this picture, then decided I don't care. Love this.

I ran some not-so-fun errands once back in the Jerz and eventually made it home to feed my starving self. First up, un salad:

Please combine tempeh, hummus and hot sauce. You will not regret it.

In the mix (so obvious): romaine, cucumber, tempeh, hummus, Cholula and no-name soy ginger dressing.

You best believe I couldn’t go any longer without a whole baby acorn squash:

Eaten with raspberry fruit spread. I keep using "raspberry fruit spread" because it's fabulously inane.

OMG I just spied a hair on that plate! Moving on…Despite the acorn twins in my tum, I felt the need for this:

Weetabix with raw almond butter and almond milk.

Momentarily satisfied, I watched a handful of Curb episodes. Larry David both pisses me off and makes me laugh hysterically. It’s fantastic!

An hour or two after dinner, I ate the rest of the Food Should Taste Good lime chips (please, someone yell at me in the comments if I buy chips again) and these:

Yes, I'm too lazy to plate that. Plus, I want as much almond butter as possible, when I want it. But mostly, it's the laziness.

I think that was it. Who knows though. The rest of the night was filled with switching between The Hills, The City and the VS Fashion Show. Exhausting.

But now, sugarplums, I must be off to continue the slew of calls and who knows what else. Have a gorgeous Wednesday! And don’t forget to work it.

Ciao for now,

Kailey

QUESTION: What makes you confident?
For me, it’s mostly in my head. There are always those days when I feel like poo (I normally have a blemish or two or something else stoopid), but to combat that, I wear something I love, do ma hurr and makeup and pretend I’m confident. I tell myself that being friendly and personable is far more important than anything else, and that no one will notice whatever is bothering me. Most times, this works. Also, a good pair of four-inch heels always help.

  1. Exercising always boosts my confidence and makes me feel good about myself. Especially if I do it first thing in the morn. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. A nice long walk just makes me feel good in general and boosts my confidence ALSO if my kids at school actually show progress then I feel kinda like a super teacher.. woo.

    Wheatebix and almond butter?! Yes please ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Confidence/strength = holding the twisting-half moon yoga pose for a solid 5 minutes or so.

  4. You are spectacular. Seriously. I love you and the way you think and your encouraging words… and I’m so glad to actually “know” you. And as I step away from my snackface shrine ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will answer the question:

    I totally understand where you’re coming from with the VS show. Until senior year in high school I was naturally very thin. Right now I think I’m at a normal, healthy weight, but I’m talking I was a skinny minnie back then :). I had enough people tell me I should be a model but then there were the actual “professionals” calling my house that were trying to get me to do it. I was flattered but not entirely interested and my mom never allowed me to do it. She didn’t want me to be judged solely on the way I looked, to think that in some way or another that my outward appearance was the only important and valuable thing about me. And I’m so glad she did that. I worked a lot with people in the fashion industry at two internships before Fitness (Cookie & Modelinia) and there’s pressure, loads of it, for even the people working with the models. It’s crazy. This past summer I was in a good enough place to avoid it: I was eating a mainly raw diet (we discussed this) and walking non-stop so I felt good about the way my body looked, felt, and functioned. I think that’s the key! And I think that’s why I’m so committed to living my life healthfully (most of the time). I want to have fun, I want to enjoy being young, but I also want to be confident. A lot of the time that does mean making food choices that I can be proud of and being as active as possible. But if all else fails, I go the slightly superficial route: I do my hair, I put on my best made-up face, and wear and outfit that I know looks good ;). There you go, confident as can be, and a smile helps too!

    I just bought this new pair of boots with a small heel and when I walked into work the other day my supervisor said I walked like a VS model. Haha. This is relevant, I feel? I’m wearing them today, and plan to WORK IT, as per your advice ๐Ÿ˜€

    I love reading your updates from NYC! As a matter of fact, I’m on cheapflights right now, wanting so badly to see the city for myself!!!!!

  6. Snackie, if you would’ve been in that VS show, you would’ve worked it out fo sho! Like some ol’ skool Missy Elliot, youknowwhatimsayin??

    As for what makes me confident, there’s nothing a little dancing can’t fix. Turn on the radio, put on some poppin’ beats and dance in your pajamas. It always works for me, and trust me, I can’t dance!

  7. Knowing my shiz at school/work makes me feel confident. So does lots of mascara. I have pretty eyes so I like to focus on them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Girl you always are working it. You my work it IDOL!

  9. 9 Lizzy

    I think wearing a saucy lookin pair of heels makes any lady look fab! I didn’t watch the VS fashion show, but i don’t think i would have even if i remembered to watch. I love when a good outfit, a good hair day and a super awesome makeup day just makes you feel like a million bucks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    That photo of the taxies soooo awesome, i want to come to NYC SOOOOO BAD! ๐Ÿ™‚

    have a great day babe!

    i think i feel confident after i pr on lifting weights or after doing a really hard workout. =D
    that and dressing up in nice clothes. =D

  11. 11 Natalie

    sup girl? talkin about workin it, just makes me want to turn up freakum dress real loud and dance around! ๐Ÿ™‚ i feel like we like alot of the same music and i just found this new cd that i am lovin movin to at the gym, its santigold and the album is southerngold, its santigold mixed with southern rappers the likes of, weezy baby, rick ross, the dream (my personal fav) gucci mane, you get the drift. anyways it is a baller album. i dont know if it is sold on itunes i got a copy of a copy of a copy from friend. but it just makes me want to work it! ๐Ÿ™‚ hope your hump day is fab!

    • 12 snackface

      Natalie- Hahaha I love your comment so much. I absolutely have to check out that album! Thanks bunches. I’m an old-fashioned CD girl, so I’ll see what I can do.

  12. im with you girl-its in my head..exercise def makes me feel good after..and just knowing that God has created me (and every woman) to be a beautiful creature..its our heart that matters!

    love what you said about the VS fashion show.. i could SO see you on that in a few years!! ๐Ÿ™‚ or next year!

  13. i was watching the VS show last night too. they inspired me… to get another glass of wine. dayum.

    nevertheless, if you were on it, that would be the ultimate. although i totally respect you for not wanting to sacrifice body for bikini.

    xo

  14. I needed that confidence boost! Thanks sweetie. After watching that show I wanted to hate my flabby tummy but now I’m going to strut my Buddha belly b/c it’s all in my head, ya know? You are so positive ๐Ÿ™‚

    • 16 snackface

      Yasmin- Aw, so glad I could help in any way! I’m positive that “Buddha belly” really is all in your head. You’re gorgeous!

  15. 17 Cassie in Madrid

    confidence definitely depends on the day… no matter what i feel better if i get a workout in the morning! you feel like you’re supergirl and one step ahead of everyone else! i also love getting my hair done… no matter what i always feel like a model afterwards and never want to shower the style away!

    i LOVE that free people sweater! is it this season?! i’m out of the country and am DYING without free people anywhere! i guess i know where all my money is going when i get home in a couple weeks!

    • 18 snackface

      Cassie- The sweater is from a couple years ago, so sorry! I should warn people before every picture: This is ancient.

  16. I walk like a duck stuck in concrete in heels so scratch that one off my list. A good pair of jeans and a snazzy top makes me confident. But so does a glass of wine…

    Love your comfy sweater and flats. I think flats look incredble on everyone but myself.

    Thanks for the warning on the VS fashion show, I DVR’d it and am planning on watching it this afternoon with a big snack in front of me. How’s that for confidence!? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Q for you, do you cook your tempeh or just crumble it raw over the salad?

    • 20 snackface

      Graze With Me- I think it takes confidence to admit you can’t walk in heels- props to that! So for tempeh, I just crumble it raw. So good! It’s fun to bake it alongside cheetahs, too. It gets a nice crunchy crust. Perhaps you shall enjoy some with a little VS runway?

      • So funny you said that! I DID in fact enjoy some baked tempeh while watching the VS show. You psychic, you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Confidence, for me, comes from picking out an outfit and feeling great in it or from a compliment from a stranger. Thankfully, I actually get those once in a while living in NYC!

  18. curb is my favorite show eva. in fact my dad is larry david…they semi-look alike and act exactly the same way. Its too funny because my dad has gone through many of the show’s dilemas. yesum, i know i have misspelled a bill times in this…anywoo poo poo, I feel confident after a workout and shower and when I eat well. Like when I know my hair is lovely, my clothes are rocking and my posture is in check, I strut differently. 1 week 5 days……

    xoxo
    lo

  19. 24 Zaineb

    AMAZE POST right there. You know, its weird, cuz sometimes u think someone is so gorgeous and u wish u could look like them becuz they probably don’t have insecurities, well the truth is EVERYBODY is insecure in some way, shape, or form. I mean, to us, the VS models might be the epitomy of gorgeous, while they themselves might hate what they see in the mirror and obsess over staying thin. Just some thoughts.

  20. Ahhh I’m the same way with the phone! Especially at work! If I can avoid it by finding it online or some other way, I will! You look fabulous as usual! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. It’s always reassuring when you hear about people having the same kinda weird habits as you – I also pick apart my already assembled sandwiches when I actually eat them. Especially with Ezekial bread, I can’t stand a dry mouthful of food!

    I’ll admit that when I saw a bit of the VS show last night I started to judge the girls. Like, that one has a tiny bit of pudge on her stomach, or that one has a freakishly thin ribcage…and THEN I punched myself in the face for being a ridiculous person who is just perpetuating the worst stereotypes and projecting the worst body image onto myself. A, these are VS Angels aka the most perfect specimens of people out there and B, IT DOESN’T MATTER. At all. Bodies are for loving, running, and living life, NOT for criticizing or constantly inspecting for ‘flaws’. I guess it just took a healthy dose of half-naked women in body glitter to get me to come to my senses.

    • 27 snackface

      Anna- I think it’s hard not to point out certain things that you’ve mentioned. Unfortunately, it’s how we’ve grown up and what we’ve come to know. Analyze, tear apart, feel better about ourselves. But you’re right. We have to stop! However, I don’t think the Angels are “the most perfect specimens of people out there.” We’re supposed to believe that, but we need to stop. Physically, they’re long, lanky, toned, whatever. Perfect? I have no definition for that. BUT, bodies are definitely for loving and living life! At least mine is ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and getting my freak on.

  22. Adorable outfit! And lovely eats, I love carrots dipped in almond buttah as well. what makes me confident? a good pair of jeans that fit really well.

  23. “Rocks my ballet flats off” – LOL Love it.
    Work it, girl! You’re amazing.
    That salad looks uhhh mazing! Can you believe I’ve never tried tempeh? Must try, eh?
    Standing up straight and smiling makes me feel confident ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. 30 Kate

    Cute ‘fit! I actually didn’t love the VS show last night…first of all, I felt that the BEP were making it seem less like a fashion show and more like a terrible concert with girls in lingerie. **Done Venting**

    One positive thing I liked about it was a) their willingness to embrace Heidi back after every weight/baby/gain/loss no matter what (even though she has to lose most of her weight and look slammin’ to do it) and b) I liked that some of the girls had curves. Not all of the girls are teeny tiny with no curves…Doutzen was rockin’ it and I miss Adriana Lima because she was curvy, too! Go VS for having some girls cast that have some T and A ๐Ÿ˜€

    • 31 snackface

      Kate- Ah! I completely agree about the BEPs. I wasn’t enjoying the performance, even though I get my crump on to their music all the time. I also got chills when Heidi walked on stage. LOVE her. And Doutzen! OMG there was internet buzz about how she was too heavy or whatever and I was completely shocked. Homegirl is ripped and GORGEOUS. What’s even more shocking is that in the late 80’s/early 90’s, that was the average size of a model. We’ve grown so accustomed to this twiglette with boobs look. It’s frightening.

  25. i was kind of hesitant on watching the VS show because i did not know if it was going to be triggering or not. but i also watched the biggest loser but i missed the hills and the city because i figured they are always on so i can watch them anytime!
    jenna

  26. Here is to working out and eating right to FEEL good, NOT to look good! Healthy at every size, that is what we should be aiming for. Great post, SnackFace, love the body acceptance and all out confidence, as a ferocious feminist that made me smile.

    What makes me feel confident is common sense. I’ve never in my life felt ‘less than’ or not good enough, or worried one bit about how I measured up to other people because….common sense says that we are all awesome BECAUSE we are different. We aren’t meant to be clones, we all have our strengths and weaknesses, we are all human, we make mistakes, we succeed, we fall down, we get back up again. So, common sense is my ‘secret’, if you could even call it that!

    As for body confidence…well, come on. The standards that women (and yes, only women) are held to in this society are just ridiculous. They are damaging and hateful and serve only to oppress us and keep us down and take our money. Read Naomi Wolf’s The Beauty Myth and that will clear up any bad hair days you could ever have. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • 35 snackface

      The Voracious Vegan- Wow, what an awesome perspective. I am right with you on the common sense thing. Totally get that. It’s like, of course I can’t be like that person or this person, especially when it comes to one’s body. It’s absurd. Why would we even care about that anyway? I am going to look into that book. Thank you!

  27. 36 homegirlcaneat

    HELLO! I LOVE YOUUUU!

    That is all I can say at this moment because I am running to class and want to comment super long about how awesome diz post was and all the awesome comments on it. GIRL POWER!

  28. a good outfit boosts my confidence ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. 38 Katie

    Hey girl. Love the hot pink nails, btw. Love your ‘tude about how to work it as normal femmes. Strut your stuff ALWAYS. Happy Wednesday! Katie

  30. 39 Liz

    LOVE your sweater ๐Ÿ™‚ Any variation of my favorite outfit (cardigan, v-neck T, pashmina, skinny jeans, flats) makes me feel at least a little better even when I feel my worst. Funny how that works, isn’t it?

  31. Hiya girl. Longtime lurker here ๐Ÿ™‚
    First up, love your blog like woah. Always gives me a giggle and a smile.
    I decided to finnnnally comment on THIS particc post, though, because of your little commentary on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and how we should all be workin’ it. Thanks so much for that, seriously. Sometimes we need a l’il confidence boost, yanno? And also, can totally relate to your anti-phone-using feelings. I hate phone calls.
    Anyway, no more lurking for me! I’m a loud-and-proud Snackfaceaholic! As for what makes me feel confident, it’s usually putting on clothes I looove, makeup and hair did, and basically faking it till I make it – usually while strutting down the street to a good tune. And positive rants like yours today don’t hurt either! Thanks girlie!
    xx
    Liz

    • 41 snackface

      Liz- Oh my gosh, thanks so much for coming out of the closet and leaving such a sweet, bossy comment! I am ALL ABOUT faking it till you make it. It helps so much!

  32. I was cracking up when you said you pulled the sammy apart. I do the same thing. Call me dramatic but bread can be overwhelming when you trying to taste the flavors in between it. hah!
    have a great day girl!

  33. I seriously think you would have made it on the fashion show…but there’s always next year ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You are gorgeous inside and out just the way you are and no one should tell you otherwise.
    To boost my confidence, I think more positively, sit up straighter, and smile!

    • 44 snackface

      Shelby- Thank you, sweetcheeks! I just might tackle it for 2010, who knows!

  34. I watched the Vickies Secret Fashion Show with my roommate who is struggling with anorexia…why we watched it…idk. The ENTIRE time I was outwardly disgusted by the ones who were the skinniest and she thought they were the prettiest out of all of them. I thought Victoria’s Secrets was about curves?! you know, hips and boobs and the like. Apparently its just boobs and skin that hangs on bones with no substance. I loved the fashion show, but it broke my heart to realize how it affected my roommate in a very real way. Thank you so much for mentioning something so wholesome about it!! I really appreciate that there is SOMEONE else out there, even someone who has the body type who could actually try out!! that is amazing. โค Gina

    • Also, I linked your blog in one of my recent posts (ha it was about the Fashion Show) I hope you don’t mind!! if you do I can take it out aSAP! Thanks!

    • 47 snackface

      becauseiamwoman- Thank you so much for sharing this. I’ve had a roomie who didn’t necessarily have an eating disorder, but definitely issues of some sort. She always thought the skinniest people were the prettiest, and eventually I couldn’t watch TV with her. I hope you help a sistah out!

  35. oh sweetums.. the modeling world would be 43904930 billion times more superior if you were it’s spokeswoman. I swear, your confidence and positive radiates off the screen and I want to give you tons of hugs and kisses for reaffirming that we are ALL beautiful insolong as we are confident in ourselves and hold our heads high. It’s all about the swaaaaggah

    for me I’m confident when I actually take the time to do my hair (which is a rare occurrence.. I’m lucky if I shower half the time)

    LOVE YOU SO MUCH YOU BEAUTIFUL BEAUTY QUEEN!!!!!!!!!

    • 49 snackface

      Jenny- Congratulations, you are officially the sweetest person on earth. LOVE YOU!

  36. working out and having that amazing endorphin rush is when i feel my best! I love being sweaty knowing how hard I worked. I spend so much time syaing “oh I dont like this” about my body when I look in the mirror and don’t take nearly enough time to realize what a machine my body is. legs, arms, able to run and workout, it just makes me feel great!

    you are georgous and I have always thought so!

    • 51 snackface

      Naomi- I love the feeling after a workout, too! Don’t you feel invincible then? Also, thank you so much. TOO SWEET.

  37. I swear to God, if you see Albie from Real Housewives of Dirty Jerz while you’re there, give him my digits. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love the intro, pooks!! However I must say you are a gorgeous (inside and out), brilliant, hilarious, and generous young woman which is infinitely more important that how toned your stomach is.

    Oh goodness, I loathe talking on the phone so I feel so bad that you had to call all of those people. I would have had sweaty palms from the get go!

    Further proof we are Midwest twins: “Iโ€™d much rather eat the pieces of bread separately instead of desperately trying to taste the hummus between two slices of dry bread. Ya dig?” I TOTES DIG! I break apart every sandwich – volume eat that biatch like it’s my job.

    Confidence? A good outfit, positive work reviews, and good grades. I like being successful! XOXOX!

    • 53 snackface

      K- Why are you so nice to me? You’re amazing! Also, I’ll be sure to give Albie your digits…as long as you’re willing to share. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love you, twin.

  38. Hey baby!!!

    I feel like you are so isolated out there and you don’t even have access to all of us all the time. I hope you aren’t too lonely!

    That’s so hysterical that you like Curb. I like it too, but the husband is obsessed. We own it on DVD. It’s so cringe inducing for me to watch, but yet still funny.

    Confidence? I just train my girls to say, “You are so pretty, mommy,” over and over and over again.

    • 55 snackface

      Mama Pea- Oh don’t worry about me! I’m definitely not lonely. Maybe a bit the first week, but everything’s awesome now.

  39. Confidence can be tricky… I’ve found that my smile makes me instantly more confident, though! I used to think it was the eyeliner, the heels, a favorite top… all of which help, don’t get me wrong. But if I am wearing those, and am not smiling or at least having an amused expression, my confidence level is considerably lower.

      Sara- AHhhhh!!!! The link definitely worked. I’m both nauseated and a bit heartbroken. That is not OK! Thanks for sharing! Damn Cincinnati.

      • 59 Sara

        I’m so glad you could see the video… how awful and disrespectful. I was going to use the word tasteless before I realized the 2nd meaning and this is no joking matter! If that was in my city, I’d stomp through their ice or turning up the heat or throwing away the keys to the zamboni…. ok self, get serious and diplomatic. But it ain’t right! And they’re adults sheesh!

  41. Amen! I didn’t watch the fashion show, and I’m glad I didn’t…but I agree, no matter who we are, we should all WORK IT ๐Ÿ™‚

    When I need to feel confident, I remind myself of how many amazing and wonderful things I have in my life, and how many wonderful PEOPLE influence me daily. I have a great group of close friends, who actually value me, not my ability to be a party animal…and I have a wonderful blogworld-ful of chicas like yourself that I know are beside me always!

  42. Love your opening line there. We should all work it. Totally agree! Girl, I could tell you sooo many stories about being judged about my body. I used to make my living with my body and looks. I still kinda do. No one wants a sloppy yoga teacher, either. There is always the unspoken pressure but for the first time in life, I really dont care!

    This line
    It tasted like ashy dirt water.
    DD’s coffee SUCKS indeed.

    love ya!!!!!

  43. 62 Lyss

    all i could think about while watching was you! you would have walked those other b!tches right off the runway, gorgeous!

  44. Hey! I’m coming out of hiding & introducing myself to everyone I read! Your blog is so exciting! I love hearing about what your up to & where your going next. I’m insanely jelouse your in NYC right now!! hmm…what makes me confident? deffinatly being put together, but I very much agree with you. Just sucking it up if I feel like poo & putting a smile on my face makes me feel confident ๐Ÿ™‚

    • 65 snackface

      Lauren- Thank you so much for commenting! And for thinking SnackFace is exciting! I never know!

  45. For confidence while running, lifting, studying…I have to think positively. Corny as it is, I do a lot of telling myself I CAN

  46. omg all the odwalla bars freak’n rock…except the pomegranate one, it kinda tastes like plastic.

    when i need to feel confident i really turn towards my blog and you lovely ladies…and try to remember all the crazy things i’ve done in life that makes me who i ammmm…cause you know, chasing birds and dodging gators isn’t an everyday event. ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. 68 shell625

    delicious eats ๐Ÿ™‚ & i know how you feel about the fashion show, but i am glad you realize that it is important to just be happy with what you’ve got– & YOU are absolutely stunning!
    my confidence comes from the people who surround me and always encourage me to be the best i can be

      Casey- Oh I don’t doubt that for a second! I once had a dance coach who was an NFL cheerleader. She drew on abs. I’ve always loved that. Thanks for sharing the link!

  52. i am reading my new blog posts in google reader in the order they were posted and it is killing me because i am fairly certain you said my name in your newest post judging from the traffic that has come to my blog today. BUT.. i must read in order because~well, i don’t know why. i just have to. call me crazy. lord knows i am. i caught glimpses of the fashion show. ummmmm, agree with you whole heartedly. apparently heartedly is not a word, says my firefox. oh well! one thing i do not like about kailey in NYC: your outfit photos are next to impossible to see. so dark. so sad. theres that damn weetabix with nut butter again! must have. this comment is already way too long for my own good and your own good. i love you~i mean it.

    How do you cook your acorn squash and do you season with anything? They look delicious!

      Sarah- Thanks for the Q! Procedure for acorn squash: crank oven to 475*, slice squash in half, scoop out seeds, plop in oven, open side up, eat when tender. It’s so easy and so delicious! I find that if I really like a veggie, I don’t need seasoning or anything. Plus, I like to spread a jam on top. Actually, nut butter would be amazing, too!

  54. This is hands down one of the bestt posts you’ve ever written! Well, it’s one of my favorites at least. I love the content, powerful message (work itttt!), food, NY shots and humor!

    Totally agree on the whole VS front. You’re too hot for them, anyways! I didn’t watch the live show (although it is tivoed on my sorority house’s downstairs TV), but did see some pics. What happened to the curves?! These new girls did not look healthy at all, and that’s what i’ve always admired those VS models for!!

    Anyways….i also love how you noticed that hair on your plate, after the fact. I’m the say way about hair + food…freaks me the f- out!

    And i’m also the same with my sandos. Gotta eat each slice by itself, to get the utmost flavor in every bite, plus maximum eating time ๐Ÿ™‚

    OKAY, LOVE YOU!!! I’ll try to work it tomorrow like miss Gisele (i am aware that she’s an x-vs) while walking to class! haha, have a great Friday Kailey!
