SHAPE

Some days I feel like doing deep reading. And when that feeling happens, I lay down my InTouch and pick up SHAPE magazine. I really should do this more often as I come away loaded with useful knowledge…such as the following:

-To make their teeth appear whiter on the red carpet, celebrities will take a child’s toothbrush and red mouth wash and gently brush it onto their gums to make their pearlies stand out better.#passtheplax


-Water gets colder when you add sugar to it. 


-Women who get just four hours of sleep will consume about 329 more calories on a daily basis

-You can exercise up to 10 minutes longer if you drink a slushy before working out vs just water. I totally took this as a free pass to hit up the gas station slurpee machine. 


Don’t you feel smarter? I know I do. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of SHAPE....and no, I haven't changed careers to magazine sales.

Yum! Perfect reason to hit up the local gas station for a Mountain Dew slushie! I must get a subscription to Shape ... and other magazines. I miss reading that stuff.

I love your deep reading! My deep reading includes turning of Regis and Kelly (don't worry, I've actually never turned it off!) and reading blogs! ...also, in case you missed it, for the pic of Chelsea, stone, John, me, you, and your boy, I've conveniently named him dash. What's better than ash & dash? Plus I figured you like all kourtneys name picks! :)

Love love XO

Shape vs. In Touch...girl it takes motivation to put down the In Touch! lol

Who would've thought a slurpee would help with working out?? I don't hate it!

Oh my gosh, I always get 4-5 hours of sleep when I work. That's why I eat like crazy!

I've never thought of picking up Shape before. The slushie suggestion is making me consider it, though!

Shannon said...

I can totally see less sleep, more eating, as I sit here eating a late dinner, lol.
