Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I was out of town on business part of last week and missed you all very much but I am now back an in action so get ready to have some fun! Today’s Vlog post (my 99TH!) features a new yoga DVD as a giveaway (perfect for AM & PM workouts), the details of the latest episode of “Book Vs Movie” where we tackle the spooky classic “Carrie” and the news of a total jerkoff who wants to fat-shame the universe. Her name is Katie Hopkins and I absolutely loathe this woman.

  • Book vs. Movie “Carrie” Ep Is Live! Up in iTunes right now and on Stitcher is the next episode of Book vs. Movie podcast where we dive into the 1970s classic (meaning the novel by Stephen King and the movie by Brian ) We are quite proud of it and hope you like it as well. Also, if haven’t done so already feel free to “like” our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter. (Namaste!)

And if you want to just listen in right now—I am embedding the player right here. (You’re welcome!)

  • Terrible Human Being Alert: There is a person out there named Katie Hopkins who wants to prove once and for a all there are NO excuses for being overweight. So she gained 50 pounds on purpose to prove it is only about food intake and exercise when it comes to being skinny or fat. Nothing else could possibly be the reason and she has such a mean, smug face that she is one of the few people I want to slap in public. No more fat-shaming, people. It literally helps NO ONE!
  • My newest giveaway! Are you looking to fit in a bit more yoga in your day but want a DVD to guide you? Well then you are in luck because I am giving away one copy of Element: Daily Yoga with certified yoga instructor Mia Togo to one lucky person this week. So check out how to win below and good luck to all of you. (Well—the U.S. peeps as they are the only ones who can enter this giveaway!)

Now on to this week’s Vlog and giveaway details!


More Information about the Element: Daily Yoga giveaway:



BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Los Angeles based yoga instructor Mia Togo believes that a little yoga in the morning and a little yoga in the evening can not only improve one’s day but can actually change their life. The newest DVD in the best-selling Element series offers two 40-minute practices to help people experience the positive changes that yoga can bring about. “Element: Daily Yoga” will be available in stores and on Amazon for $14.98 (suggested retail price) beginning December 2, 2014 from Anchor Bay Entertainment. The morning practice will help users tone, energize and invigorate while the evening practice will stretch, calm and restore body and mind.  As with all Element DVDs, “Daily Yoga” was filmed in a serene garden overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

The morning sequence begins with an energizing flow to stimulate circulation, build muscle tone and provide an overall energy boost. It progresses to an invigorating stretch to promote flexibility and ends with a grounding savasana to cultivate clarity and focus on what is truly meaningful in the day to come. The evening sequence is designed to release the stress and tension that accrues throughout the day. It will restore energy with a combination of gentle exercises to relieve tension in the neck and shoulders, detoxifying twists to help revitalize the spine and deep stretches to release tight muscles and let that life force flow freely. This sequence will help create peace of mind to prepare for a restful night’s sleep and bring calm focus to navigate through the twists and turns of life.

These yoga practices are appropriate for all levels of fitness and for those who may be new to yoga. Those who already enjoy yoga will also gain from Togo’s unique style. Nothing more than a mat and towel are needed for these programs.

Teaching yoga for over 10 years in the Los Angeles area, Mia Togo is a certified yoga instructor and certified life coach with a degree in Psychology from UCLA. She has led classes at Wanderlust festivals. Before discovering yoga, Toga was a professional dancer and had performed with Paula Abdul, Janet Jackson and Cindy Lauper.
