I am a gumaholic...
Yep, you heard me. I’m a gumaholic. What is a gumaholic? Exactly what it sounds like. I constantly chew gum. I am at about ½-1 pack a day - I can’t stop. Chewing gum is one of my only vices – and it wont be very easy giving it up.
The main reason I chew gum: It prevents me from gaining 3947239847 pounds. How?
I’m the kind of person who gets hungry every hour on the hour. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ll feed myself if I’m actually hungry, but sometimes it’s not really hunger – it’s just my body tricking itself into thinking I’m hungry. (Did you know that the act of chewing and salivating begins the process of digestion?) By chewing gum, I’m tricking my trickster stomach into thinking that I’m eating. (Take that stomach!!).
Gum = maintained weight = happy Jenna.
I hope gum chewing doesn’t negatively impact my jaw in the long run…..or my teeth.
I’ve been seriously thinking about giving it up. Is there a such thing as “Gumaholics Anonymous? I need help.
This video is equal parts: amazing, mesmerizing, and absolutely fantastic...
I can’t keep my eyes off. How does he do it!?
I think I might have a new favorite Clif bar flavor….
Crazy isn’t it? I’ve been a firm believer that there is no better flavor than the ‘Oatmeal raisin walnut’, and I’m usually a very big advocate of my protein bars tasting like protein/ energy bars on opposed to some sort of dessert. BUTTTT…..I’m a person who can admit when they’re wrong, or being a little too hasty. And this is me admitting….that I’ve been wrong, and I’ve been hasty.
Chocolate brownie is absolutely delicious! I didn’t think I would like it at all! I assumed that, like all other chocolate and/or candy flavored energy bars, I would hate it for being too sweet, or too desserty (desserty? Lol) or not enough to satisfy my hunger. But I was wrong.
My top 3 Favorites:
1.) Chocolate brownie 2.) Oatmeal Raisin Walnut 3.) Black Cherry AlmondPlease give one of these bars a try. They’re a very good meal substitute, and great snacks on
Hey girls - have curly hair and don’t know what to do with it?
Fear not! Watch this video! Maiysha has amazing tips, and uses a lot of the same products I use in my hair every day! Make sure to pay close attention to what she has to say, because some of these tips could make or break the way your curly head looks!
I love how she finishes off by saying “Happy curly”. Made me smile J
I used to talk so much about my hair, and curls in general, but now curls have kind of fallen to the wayside – and food has taken over. I’ve decided to begin featuring more curly hair tips, more products, and I’m going to feature more ‘real’ curly headed people (not just celebrities).
So for all of you fellow mop heads – be on the look out!
It’s official – I am once again obsessed with the once popular now cancelled television series Pushing Daisies…
What is Pushing Daisies?
Only the best television show EVER.
This explains everything....well....everything within the first season:
Why the love for a tv show?
For one, it’s absolutely amazing down to every last detail. The dialogue, the characters, the actors, the wardrobe, the set design, the music, EVERYTHING is amazing. This show is complete perfection. I could talk about Pushing Daisies for days. I leave you with this lovely/old interview with Anna Friel and Lee Pace:
This is usually the part where I post pictures and such that I find noteworthy.....
beautiful, interesting, etc. – but since I have so many photos every day, I decided to turn it into a featured section! This section will not have a tab at the top of my blog like the rest do, but that’s only because there are so many pictures, and no way to organize them. So each day you can find art right underneath the featured restaurant section, and right above the kitchen gadget section!
I hope you enjoy this new improvement.
I hope you all have a wonderful day!!
Let us begin….

And please don't offer me your modern method
By fixing the carpets out of wood”

BEN & JERRY’S TAKES ‘ALL NATURAL’ CLAIMS OFF ICE CREAM LABELS
"Indie ice cream pioneer Ben & Jerry's will be dropping the phrase "All Natural" from some of its ice cream and frozen yogurt cartons, it announced today.
The flavors containing alkalized cocoa, corn syrup, and partially hydrogenated soybean oil particularly irked the folks over at the Center for the Science in the Public Interest, who had asked the company to stop using "all natural" claims last month in a letter to parent company Unilever. That leads us to wonder, if Ben & Jerry's — Insert catchphrase "Peace, Love and Ice Cream" here — isn't natural, then what is?
Apparently, the USDA allows meat and poultry to be labeled "natural" if they don't include artificial colors or ingredients, and are not more than "minimally processed." But the rest of the food supply's definition of natural is up for grabs. The FDA doesn't define the word "natural," so it's used by a variety of food manufacturers in an effort to imply their products are somehow better for us. We've seen it on everything from potato chips to cereal boxes.
“The Food and Drug Administration could do consumers and food manufacturers a great service by actually defining when the word ‘natural’ can and cannot be used to characterize a given ingredient,” says CSPI's Michael Jacobson. According to MediaPost, a media and marketing pub, Ben & Jerry’s CEO Jostein Solheim stressed that the company uses the most natural ingredients it can find, and feels its products are “all natural” in the way reasonable consumers would understand the term."
