My Perfect Man : Written Edition

Hey Beauties,

Yesterrday i posted a podcast of “My perfect Man”, if you haven’t already gone and listened to it go on over and take a boo. However i decided to post the written version as well just incase some people don’t feel like listening to my voice for 6 minutes.

***

I actually don’t think my standards are high at all, the world as has come to sad, sad place where everyone just settles.That’s not for me. I wont settle until my perfect man comes along to me.

I’ve always been a hopeless romantic; I think the first time was when I watched titanic way back when I was like 9 years old. I know crazy right? To think a nine-year-old thought of romance, but I did from then on I would read romance novels and watch romance movies.

Which leads me to now.

Almost 20 and the hopeless romantic still lives within hoping that perfect someone will bump me on the street or ask what book I’m reading at a cute coffee shop, just like in the movies.

I’m not saying my next date will lead to the one, no but one-night stands aren’t my style, and I can’t just justify going on a date with a any guy just because.

Hopefully, my relationship when it does come will grow with any guy who’s worth the investment of my time. Which sadly no man I’ve met stays past the first date, they invest their time for one night, and everything goes swell. Then BAM. Its ghost town.

Dare I say I’ve never made it to the second date with anyone?

My friends and family continuously will tell me, “You don’t need to look for someone perfect. You just need to someone who will give you some intimacy and not call you back tomorrow.”

Or the big one “YOURE TO PICKY”

I disagree. Look the guy doesn’t have to be perfect, but he has to be perfect for me. And I’m not picky at all; I just have self-respect and standards, which over time everyone, deemed as unacceptable.

I bet you’re all wondering wow this chick has never even made it to the second date? Whoa that’s crazy that’s ratchet. Its not. Look what I’ve came to realize is that men today cant handle strong woman, ok there’s some but not many around me. They run away scared.

And sorry but I’m not into chasing people especially men around the planet just for some affection, my perfect man is going to give me affection when I don’t even ask for it.

My perfect man yes man not boy because boys have to learn respect for women.

My perfect man won’t hesitate about anything; he’ll keep it straight and to the point always even though he knows sometimes that may hurt me. From what I’ve learned is that if your partner can’t tell you when you’re being a bitch and you cant tell them when their being a complete dick your relationship isn’t strong at all.

My perfect man will respect me enough to give me girl time and I’ll do the same for him wit his Bro time. It’s only fair and honestly space is good.

My perfect man will understand how lucky he truly is, he wont play these games and the quote “you don’t know what you’ve got till its not gone” wont come into play because he should know what he has.

My perfect man is mature enough to face commitment. Look I’m not asking for marriage, kids and sweet little home in Alabama. No what I’m asking for is commitment to me and to the relationship. If you’re going to cheat break up with me or be single. It’s that simple.

My perfect man will understand how much he means to me without having to ask. He should know and if doesn’t then clearly he’s not invested enough or lacks trust.

My perfect man, dare I say will be afraid of losing me. You know like those moments in movies where the girl will leave and the boy is heartbroken and goes crazy until she speaks to him again. Yeah that’s what I want. I get it you’re a man, you don’t cry but lets be real here, if you’re upset when your Xbox dies you better be upset when I fucking leave, if they don’t get upset well truly the relationship wasn’t what I thought.

My perfect will have good hygiene. If I have to shave my legs and whatever else you do as well.

My perfect man will live for adventure. Not saying we have to go hiking or backpacking across Europe this very second. What I’m saying is that I want someone who is willing to get ice cream at 3am just to sit up and watch movies with me.

My perfect man will be a bad boy at heart. Sorry I love the good guys but every guy has a bit of bad boy in them. There my weakness I like the leather jackets the motorbikes, the man bun the tattoos sue me.

My perfect man will have a smile that love. I’m big on smiles and the whole face in general. Ok? Sometimes it’s about the looks.

My perfect will enjoy working out and hitting the gym or come running with me. I like guys who want to live a nice healthy lifestyle sue me. But don’t make the gym your entire life.

My perfect man will like to cook. Hey I get it, its not everyone’s forte but my perfect guy yes he’ll enjoy the act of cooking and eating.

My perfect man Wont be afraid to go after what he wants.

I always get asked, “What’s your type?”

That’s my type the guy who isn’t afraid to go after what he wants in life.

And finally my perfect man will be happy, he’ll want to make me happy the relationship a happy environment. I get it all couples fight here and there but that’s not what the whole relationship should or what you always talk about to girl friends at brunch.

You should always want to talk positive of your significant other. Always.

SO in the end I don’t think my standards are high at all. Sure I may have never been in a solid relationship before which get thrown in face a lot. But that’s doesn’t mean I know any less. In fact sometimes I think I know more than my friends are in them, because I’ve seen all what happens and know exactly what I want.

Don’t settle and this is for both women and men. STOP settling go after what you truly want, not what just looks good.

Have a fabulous Sunday and a great week, i’ll try to post something this week but i have two photoshoots, homework and short film I’m filing super excited!

I’m Real, Positive and ready to go

Hey Beauties,

Lately I’ve been posting a lot about dating and my previous experience that’s ended in heartbreak which ties in with today’s post.

I’m going to share myself, yes kids I AM REAL haha. Not that you all thought I wasn’t but hey why not post a video that’s  both kind of funny and positive?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4WHjiNCpPc

Basically what I’m trying to get across here is that Being an all around positive person will get you further than being negative. Trust me I’ve been that negative Nelly and it wasn’t pleasant for anyone. From all the previous players I’ve dealt with, its taught me to be a better more positive person, learning that at the end of the day the only person who will love you endlessly is yourself. That may sound vain or superficial but its the truth at least to me.

I honestly feel like in today’s society a lot of people are negative why? because they resort to online dating, hiding behind screens and fat/ skinny shaming people they don’t even know.

Am i even making sense right now?

Positive body image, mind, soul and dating life all comes from within. Start off with making yourself happy and believe me DO NOT change yourself for anyone, it never works and while you’re at it DO NOT try to change anyone either. People only change if they want to, not if someone offers to do it for them.

To find that perfect person look no further than the mirror, because that’s the person you have to see everyday in and out through thick and thin. They are the ones who cry with you when sad and watch endless movies with. Love that person first, before anyone else and I promise another person who will almost be like the “cherry on top” will come along.

I’ll let what I said in the video speak for itself.

Hello Post Summer body

Hey Beauties,

So sorry I haven’t updated the blog in the last two weeks, I’ve been super busy with assignments and then I had my march break haha which consisted of eating, Netflixing The 100 (which is an awesome show and you all should get on it) ;). I worked and I’m currently on my 7th week of fitness, in which I also went out and bought new hand weights. I also saw 50 Shades of Grey *laughs*

As you all know yesterday was Motivational Monday here on the blog and it’s also starting to feel like spring here in Canada. Thank god because I’m so over the winter blues. The other day I went out for a run just to find that there was still an enormous amount of snow up in the hiking trails. However now that it’s all starting to melt, they should clear up in no time which gets me super pumped. I love working out outside, feeling the fresh air on my face and just being surrounded my something other than my bedroom walls.

I recently came across a video, that consisted of just your normal everyday, typical women working out. Unlike most commercials we all see dealing with fitness these women weren’t already in shape per say but just starting out. I loved watching it because it allows young women much like myself to see that no one starts out perfect looking. You have to WORK FOR IT!.  Dedication is key, you want to have that drive to put everything you have into it or you’ll gain nothing. Trust me Weight for myself has always been an issue and when I first starting dieting heavily my last year of high school, all I did was lose weight because all I was doing was cardio. Now all I seem to be doing is weight training, which is actually a lot more beneficial for you.

Weight training allows you to burn fat, while also gaining muscle, do a bit of cardio, eat right and you’re set. I’m a huge unbeliever of diet pills, or fast hacks those never work and you’ll most likely gain twice the weight you lost right back. Sad but true. Now I’m not staying that if you don’t workout or eat healthy you’re a bad person, no what I’m saying is that eating right and working out allows you to become a better version of yourself. I know it’s hard and difficult and many tears will be shed but it’s worth it. Its worth knowing that once you’re in your 30’s or 40’s you’ll still be healthy.

To end on a positive note watch the video below, it’s finally a fitness motivational commercial, that you’d want to show your daughter, friends, mother. It encourages women to not strive for perfection, because let’s be real no one is perfect. At the end of the day all you can do is try your best and give it your all and I promise something amazing will come of it.

P.s I’m also super obsessed with the song in the video – Get your freak on by Missy Elliott ❤

Fitness little quote I like to go by:

4 weeks You start noticing,  8 weeks friends and family start noticing, 12 weeks the world

Welcome to Motivational Monday

hey all,

So today is Monday and from my “updates” post a few days ago that can only mean one thing… It’s Motivational Monday. This is segment that I’ll be doing every Monday, where I share motivational posts, quotes, fitness tips and tricks, clean eating hacks because let’s be real I love my carbs and sugar but unfortunately my waistline doesn’t, and I’ll be sharing my weightless journey how my friends and family helped along the way, where i am to date and how I’m improving.

Heath is a big thing these days, and in my mind it’s not all about being skinny, it’s about being healthy and feeling good within your own skin my motto is this “Love your body” yes that’s right love it, own it and embrace it because it’s the only one you have and the perk is you can change anything you on it if you work hard enough and no i am not telling all of you who don’t like your nose to go get plastic surgery what I’m telling you is that weightless/ weight gain can be accomplished no matter how lazy you are, you just have to want it bad enough. A good friend of mine introduced me to this quote while I was on my own fitness journey and it has stuck with me thus far.

” How bad you want something is meaningless, it’s pointless if how bad you’re willing to work for the thing you want isn’t 10x more intense as how bad you want it “- LOS

Basically what the quote is telling us is that, nothing you want in life comes easy and if you’re not willing to work for it then clearly you don’t want it bad enough it can go for anything in life really, career, friendships, love relationships, anything.

With that quote in mind, keep your heads high and go workout, cook a nice healthy meal, look in the mirror and tell yourself that you can do it!

I did arms and back today , man was that a struggle, considering I’ve decided to lift heavier, and beauties the bright side is the heavier you  lift, the better your arms and ass will look and don’t we all want that haha.

Anyway beauties that’s all for today, what are your workout routines, pep talks and stories send me a message on Facebook, tweet me or e-mail.

I SHOULD HAVE CALLED THIS THE HEALTHY LIVING BLOG

Hello and welcome to Monday , now please excuse me while I go banter off a ton of words about life and womanly things that might not mean much to you.

Kidding, of course, this blog was actually supposed to be dedicated to healthy living, I’ve always had a passion for eating healthy an working out. Actually that’s a lie, i really like my sweets and my carbs whenever i can get them, men think that women’s main goal is to find the love of their life.. yeah while that might be all nice and dandy, the women i know , their main goal is to eat whatever they want without the worry of gaining those unwanted pounds am i right ladies?.. i rest my case

However ever since grade 12, wow seems like forever ago except the fact that it was only 2 years ago but still a lot happens in two years. Anyway grade 12 was when i really got into fitness now that may or may not be because the boy i liked at the time was really into fitness, and my fitness story is actually how him and i are now friends.. but i’ll save that story for another time.

Enjoy your snow day beauties, if you’re from the Canadian region that is.

xoxo
