Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I am on VACATION so this will be a brief post to say “hello!” and a call-to-action. I need music and radio station ideas. Really. Please send them ASAP!  Every day I seem to listen to the same radio stations online (because New York City radio is awful) and I am in need of something new in my life.

A few months ago I wrote about my current online radio playlist and while they are all still pretty great (well, KFOG is pretty terrible these days) I need MORE RADIO and MORE MUSIC suggestions.

Sooo, I am asking you all to offer me ideas and suggestions. What music gets you motivated? What are your “go-to” songs? Is there a station in your area I need to check out—please let me know and I will send a personal Brooklyn “treat” to all who help me out. Not sure what that treat will be but each and every one of you will receive one. Sounds good?

Also, in this week’s post I talk about:

Here is a photo of Milos at the event (cute, eh?)

Milos

  • Riding (for about two minutes) with Venus Williams who was debuting her new collection at Flywheel Sports. Co-Founder Ruth Zuckerman lead our class which was a real treat for me as it is always fun to take a class by one of the industry’s pioneers.

Unfortunately my camera died and my awesome pictures have disappeared from my camera (dammit!) so I will have to make do with this one shot of Venus at the pre-event who was talking to a very “pointy” reporter.

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Ep 47 Featuring “My 5 Favorite Things” @Reebok @StephenColbert @paulscheer @katespade 6

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode 47

Featuring the BFC “5 Favorite Things”

Someone please justify why I must buy these pumps for myself!

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

This has been a fun week for me where I had the chance to connect with some amazing old friends and see a couple I love FINALLY have their relationship recognized legally (it’s the 21st Century, people!) This all made me want to appreciate how wonderful my August is turning out so far and  this week I want to offer the five things that are making me smile. And here they are:

 

  1. The Reebok Sublite 2.0 I received in my goodie bag from the Fitness magazine Meet & Tweet NYC. Reebok gave me the sneakers for free and they are not sponsoring this post so I can say what I want about them and what I want to say is these are the best damn sneakers I have worn in MY ENTIRE LIFE! I run in them, cycle, teach boot camp and walk all over in these puppies and they give great support and look pretty damn spiffy. Free plug for you Reebok!
  2. My love for the site www.jezebel.com just continues to grow because not only are they funny, smart ass feminists but they also love animals and offer adorable clips every day. Here is a video of a sexy Italian guy teaching his dog yoga poses. If there is anything cuter on the net please do not tell me—I could not handle it!
  3. Stephen Colbert really knows how to take a setback and turn it into an opportunity. Earlier this week when Daft Punk rudely dropped out of an appearance on his show and Colbert was clearly NOT happy about it. But in the end he took their song “Get Lucky” and made a star-studded video (featuring Jeff Bridges, The Rocketttes, Matt Damon and more) that made me smile so hard my face started to hurt. How lucky are we to be alive watch him at the top of his game?
  4. The ArScheerio Paul Show which features comedian Paul Scheer who recreates old Arsenio Hall Show interviews featuring himself as “ArScheerio Paul” and his comic friends in the parts of past famous guest. For example Will Arnett as “Bill Clinton” and (my favorite) Alison Brie as “Madonna” and Adam Pally as “Rosie O’Donnell”. I remember these interviews the first time around and thinking they were pretty cray for the time. I will embed clips below of the original interview of Rosie and Madonna as it is an incredible time capsule as one woman is at the top of her fame and her new BFF starting to figure out her way (and dodge the “who are you dating” question.)
  5. The Kate Spade shoes I had the pleasure of trying on at a friends wedding after-party (I will explain in the Vlog.) There is no reason for me to get these shoes except that I just really, REALLY want them. (Must resist temptation…)

Anyhoo—here is this week’s Vlog post:

 

And here is the ArSheerio Hall Show Clip of “Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell”

Now, check out the real interview! (How bitchy is Madonna by the way? I miss this girl.)

 

That’s all for me today. Hope you are all enjoying your August as well! Smooches!

 

Until next time…
