8th Annual Life Candy Top 5: Who's on YOUR list?

18 May 2015

Okay, you can stop wondering "OMG, where's the Top 5 list post?!  Did I miss it?!!!"  You didn't miss it, because it's here.  Don't panic.  It's all going to be okay.  So, do what I'm doing -- relax, take off your bra, pour yourself a glass of Drambuie, and settle in for the post you've been waiting ALL. YEAR. FOR.

Okay, my sweeties, what does my Top 5 List look like for 2015?  Well, it looks... different.  You gotta mix it up once in a while.  Keep these hotties on their toes.

Now, I know my readers are not only drop-dead gorgeous but also incredibly intelligent, so I'm sure y'all KNOW this is all in fun.  I don't call my dudes "pretend boyfriends" for nothing.  Pure fantasy, people.

If you're new here, I have guidelines I use when making my list.  You may want to follow them too...
1:  Stick to 5.  Any more would be greedy, and I'm all about the sharing.
2:  Keep it to current humans -- as in alive and at their present age.  You shouldn't need a time machine to do the nasty with them.  Do you hear me, Sylvia?!
3:  Speaking of "the nasty", THAT'S ALL.  No relationships. Nothing serious.  Think a hot holiday weekend, a steamy night in a hotel, even a 5-minute sexy quickie in the alley.
4:  Again, this is all in fun.  You cannot use "Nenette said it was okay" as your defence when you get arrested for breaking into Ian Somerhalder, Rhianna, or David Hasselhoff's house.  I did not say it was okay.  I love y'all but you're on your own.
5:  Think long and hard about this!  This is your list FOR THE YEAR.  Pretend it's laminated.

When you have your list, drop it in the comments.

Now, without further ado, here's my Top 5 List for 2015:

1: Victor Webster
Tall, dark, and handsome man who practices martial arts.  My basic dream come true.  He just needs an accent.  Scottish, Australian,... or even EK.  I'm not picky.  He was cute in Charmed, but holy crap, now? OMG.  He's very commanding and take charge in Continuum.  I like that.  A lot.
If anyone on this list smells like sandalwood, I'm sure it's this hottie.  Yes, it's important.

2: Anson Mount
Where has this dude been hiding all my life?!  It's all good -- he's here now.  He runs the risk of looking too handsome (yes, that's a thing), but as long as he keeps his hair long and face scruffy, he'll be just fine.  VERY FINE.  I don't think I've ever seen him act.  No worries.  I'll look for a few episodes of "Hell on Wheels" later... when I stop drooling.

3: Gerard Butler
OMG, what's he doing at #3?!  Yeah, Victor and Anson just blew me away.  Maybe I'm changing.  I don't know.  Gerry's still cute.  Still funny.  And still scruffy.  I'm still a sucker for that accent.

4: Benedict Cumberbatch
My girlfriend Stace said he's her "chocolate tequila".  She is one of my smartest friends.

5: John Stamos
I think he made the same deal with the devil that Elle McPherson did.  Hottie.  It wasn't until I started following him on Instagram that I realized just how funny this guy is.  And THAT'S what got me first.  The key to my panties is to make me laugh.  Apparently.

Okay, now you -- and go!!!

15 Movies in 15 Minutes.

14 February 2015

Here are the rules:
Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen movies you’ve seen that will always stick with you.

They don’t have to be the greatest movies you’ve ever seen, just the ones that stick with you.

First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Copy these instructions and tag 15 (or more) friends, including me – because I'm interested in seeing what movies are in your head.

Okay, here's mine...

1:   Pride and Prejudice (2005)  
-  Matthew Macfadyen striding purposefully across the field in his long coat and boots or Colin Firth as he comes dripping out of the lake.  Um.
2:   The Avengers 
-  I love hot kickass team work.  And Tom Higgleston isn't too hard on the eyes either.  But I'm a sucker for dude with a bow and arrow.  I want to learn how to do that too.
3:   A Room with a View 
-  This is just a beautiful movie.  Visually.  It was long, but not boring.
4:   Dirty Dancing
-  Patrick Swayze dancing.  
5:  Grease 2
-  Okay, guilty pleasure.  I can sing to every single song.  I'm not even a little embarrassed. 
6:  Monty Python and the Holy Grail
-  I love all of their movies but this is my favourite.  They just looked like they were having so much fun!
7:  Serenity
-  I've always love Firefly.  And Captain Mal was yum.
8:  Star Trek 2009
-  The best reboot.  EVER.  My favourite scene was at the end, when out of nowhere Sulu brings in the Enterprise to save the day.  Totally amazing!
9:  Pitch Perfect
-  Yes, I watch the finale over and over and over.  Didn't you?  Oh, it was just me?  Ok.
10:  Raiders of the Lost Ark
-  I'm in love with Harrison Ford.  And I'm a sucker for ancient history.  And miracle biblical stuff.  That whip was pretty kickass too.
11:  Magic Mike
-  Okay, yes, let's address the first thing:  they are all hot.  Especially my Joe.  Channing Tatum is a phenomenal dancer.  And it was a funny movie.  I laughed my way through the whole bloody thing!  And NO. ONE. ELSE. DID.  Did they think it was a serious drama?!  Seriously?!  I'm sorry but I take no movie with a penis pump seriously!
12:  Princess Bride
-  "Mawwiage is what bwings us togeva today..."  
13:  When Harry Met Sally
-  They had me at Sheldon.  
14:  Guardians of the Galaxy
-  Chris Pratt.  He was so cute and funny.  And the movie was such a joy ride.
15:  The Matrix
-  Too cool to describe.  Therefore, I will leave you with the finale to Pitch Perfect.  Go ahead and watch it over and over.  Go on!  I dare ya!

Who do I tag? All of you. How's that?! I can't just pick 15. Go on. Do it. And let me know in the comments if you want so I can see it too!

2015 To-Do List.

27 January 2015

2015 is MY year!

It really is!  And I'm so freakin' excited!  I love pressing that "Reset" button, and becoming a New Me.  You know -- Better... Stronger... Faster.  (Cue theme song!)  Yup, it's the 6 Million Dollar Me but without the electronic implants.  Maybe.

Anyway, I have big plans for 2015!  Plans within plans.  But if you don't write these plans down, they don't exist.  Seriously, one of my coaches, mentors, and business partners, Susan Sly says that.  And considering the fact that she IS an actual 1+ million dollar woman, I listen to her.

So, what's on my 2015 to-do list?  Check it out...

1:  Get to 21% bodyfat and see my muscles, dammit!!!
I have a photoshoot scheduled for mid-February, and I'm going to look amazing by then, but for now, I've gone and hit it.  The dreaded "P" word.  Plateau. UGH!!!  Time to bust through it with daily consistent action by...
  • drinking 3 litres of water daily
  • not making lame excuses and just sticking to my workout schedule: weights, zumba, HIIT
  • cleansing/IF weekly
2:  Hit a very special rank in my company
I admit it.  I've been playing small.  I could've helped so many people by now, but because of my own perceived limitations, I doubted myself and the gift of health, wellness, and freedom I have to give others.  The rank I want to hit is a symbol of how many people I help to create abundant lives for themselves.  It's not about me -- it's about them.  So I will...
  • aim to mentor 3-5 people on my team to $100,000 annual incomes this year
  • help 10-20 men and women feel amazingly healthy
  • do my daily method of operation consistently 4-5 days/week
3:  Be active in the blogging world again
I know.  You've all missed me.  Admit it.  Oh, I've missed you all too, of course!  It's an amazing community of fun people.  Granted, I've moved on (a bit, but not completely) from the mommy blogger world -- many of my old cohorts have done the same -- but I have so much more to share about my new life outside of mommyhood.  My new tribe is still out there.  I just have to talk to them more.  I'll be doing that by...
  • blogging 3-5 times per week here on Life Candy
  • reading 5-10 blogs/day
  • commenting on 5 blogs/day
4: Go out for dinner with my pretend boyfriend Gerard Butler, dazzle him with my beauty and wit, and despite all his begging, refuse to run away with him.  And you thought I'd let go of this one!  Ha!  I laugh at your silliness!

I'm so excited for this new year!  And I'm so bloody stoked that you're here with me to experience this truly sweet ride!  Onward!
