The Photoshop phenomenon..

21 Jun

Hi guys!

Today I wanted to do a little post about the photoshop phenomenon.. As a model, I’ve experienced myself that a lot of photos are being photoshopped.. Sometimes just a little to make the skin appear more healthy and to remove freckles, but sometimes the entire body or face of a model is being altered..

I’ve experienced this personally when seeing new pictures of fellow models and thinking “OMG she just lost a ton of weight” & ” What diet is she on, I must give it a go”! About 2 weeks later I see the same model at a casting and she looks perfectly normal and healthy.. And when I ask her about those certain pictures, she admits it’s all just photoshop..

I don’t like this phenomenon at all because it creates an unhealthy image about how a woman should be and what a woman is supposed to look like..Models aren’t freaks of nature with some kind of super genes ( ok there are some out there , but few) but the industry is defenitely creating that mindset..

For myself, I have to watch what I eat and try to eat healthy 90% percent of the time but I do eat icecream or chocolate once in a while..I’m only human 🙂

Before and after Photoshopping pictures:



I have one picture in my portfolio where my legs are lenghtened about 10 cm or about 4 inches –>

Ultra long legs? Not so much 😉

I was reading Julie’s blog PB fingers and she made salmon burger for dinner last night.. I thought this would make an awesome lunch for me and the boyfriend..

Salmon burgers on whole wheat bread (adapted from PBfingers)

Ingredients:

  • 2 salmon filets
  • fresh chives
  • fresh rosemary
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup light mayonaise
  • salt
  • pepper
  • salsa herbs
  • garlic

Combine all the ingredients in the food processor and blend awaaaaaaaaaaay! 😉

Questions:

– Do you ever compare yourself with models or celebrities?

– Do you often believe that the photoshopped pictures are real?

– What’s your favorite salmon recipe?

Pre-Paris eats..

11 Jun

Hi guys!

Tonight I’m leaving for a two day work trip to the wonderfull city Paris!

I’ll be working there for a bridal fair, where we will do some fittings of bridal gowns and some catwalk shows..

I’ll definitely will have a lot to look at! All those nice gowns and jewellery :)) We’ll be staying in a super nice 4* hotel and the fair is starting on sunday from 9am until 9 pm until monday from 9am until 6pm.. I think I’ll be tired after this trip 😉 Fortunately, I have a day off on tuesday.. I’m starting to miss my Bikram yoga!

I was planning to go to Bikram yesterday and this morning, but I just got spraytanned for the bridal fair ( they want their models to be tan instead of the Vampire look I got going on 😉 ) The lady from the spraytanning place specifically told me to NOT shower or do any exercise, because the formula really needed to dry a couple of hours.. Preferably a day or so.. I guess sweating your ass off with Bikram isn’t an option! 😉

I did however win an unlimited class card of Bikram for one month, so I might take the opportunity to do a lil modified Bikram challenge.. I’ll put running on hold for a bit ( my 10 k isn’t due until september) so I can go to Bikram as much as I can before heading to the USA on the 12th of july for our roadtrip.. I’ll keep you posted on how it feels to do Bikram 4-5-6 times a week instead of 2 times a week.. 🙂

Before heading off to the city of love ( without my love *boehoe*) here are some recent eatsies:

Chocolate oatmeal with protein powder and raw cacao nibs..

So psyched I found these in the store! Organic vegetable mix to steam in the microwave.. Perfect for quick and easy suppers!

Cheerios with chocolate protein powder, banana, raw cacao nibs and almond milk..

Lunch! 🙂 Pink lady apple, multigrain bread with banana and coconut butter..


Yesterday, the boy decided to go to mac donalds so I made a healthyfied version of burger and fries.. Ovenfries(baked for about 20 min in the oven), mixed salad and a veggie burger.. The sauce was a mixture of yogonaise and ketchup.. hmm.. This feast clocked in at about 550 kcal ( I was curious comparing it to the meal my boyfriend had, the mac do meal had about 1200 kcal in it.. scoreee!)

This morning’s breakkie: strawberries with coconut butter and raw cacao nibs, whole wheat toast with melted cheese and whole wheat toast with nanner..

See you guys from Paris!

Questions:

-Have u ever been to Paris? If yes, did you like it?

– Favorite breakfast meal?
