At Home Cooking with Jenna & Antonia…

Posted in friendship, health, recipe, social media with tags , , , on May 6, 2010 by jentonelli

About a year ago, my lovely best friend and I were attending a Media Workshop. The entire workshop had to direct and produce their own short videos on varying topics: fashion, health, cooking, sports, etc. We were placed in the cooking category and made a one-episode, short series called “Quick, Cheap and Healthy” and we covered the “Breakfast Edition.” Needless to say we did not get the air-time the show deserved. Ha. I just remembered how ridiculous this entire process was but the important part was that we had so much fun while filming. I hope you enjoy 😉

Final Season of The Hills…

So I don’t usually talk about TV shows and that is mainly because I don’t watch any television show more than once. I have not found a single sitcom that has interested me, a series that has held my attention or a cast that I like. As you know I still watch the Friends DVDs religiously… and if not that, you can find me watching HGTV because I absolutely love watching home renovations and make overs…

Howeverrr…. I will say that I used to love love love Laguna Beach when I was in High School, and mainly because I lOveee Kristin Cavallari!

I think she is so pretty, honest and flat out amazing. She brought the drama to that show but I loved her so it was great….

When she left, so did I and I never watched the spin off The Hills which starred Laguna Beach star Lauren Conrad (LC). But when I heard Kristin was coming back as the main star on The Hills after LC left… you can guess I was very interested.. She was hotter than ever, stealing BF’s left and right… but I still could not help but love her.

I watched the entire season last season and had almost forgot about it until flipping through MTV and the trailer for this season was on. I was Horrified!! Check it out for yourself before you Continue!

As you can see from this–the show touches upon a lot of issues that girls face today. Relationships, cheating, heartbreak, friendships falling apart, but the scariest element of this next season is the f*ed up body image that many girls have. What has become of Heidi (the plastic looking blonde) and what about the drug accusations of Kristin (my girl)….??? I will be extremely interested in seeing how this season plays out and I hope you will join me! The season starts tonight @ 10 on MTV…

For the next few weeks I will be trying to follow the show and recap it for you each week! Love you XOXO

in love: confidence is key

Jealousy is an inherent aspect of our culture.


With the occasional bitch-fight with your best friend or mother, jealousy is most prominent in our relationships with our boyfriends/girlfriends. But why??

Think of the best relationships you have:

Likely with a parent, a best friend, a sibling, a coworker, even a pet, whoever….

Think of how you act toward that person:

Likely confident, secure, interested, mature, compassionate, positive and unconditional….

Think of your relationship with your partner:

Insecure, dramatic, negative, immature? If so, you might want to evaluate this relationship.

Why is it that we treat our significant other so differently than the other people we claim to love? Why do we constantly get jealous? Cause fights? And set standards that are extremely ridiculous just because they are our boyfriend or girlfriend? When in reality, we would not treat our closest friends or relatives in this manner. We know that our mother will love us unconditionally, even if we have a ton of siblings. We don’t accuse our best friend of cheating on us with their other friends. We aren’t likely to flip out on our coworkers for giving us constructive criticism. And we do not expect our sisters to text us back all day in a timely manner. We know these other people are capable of having lives and friends and still love us back. Why, though, do we often set our boyfriends or girlfriends up to fail? Why can’t we maintain that same confidence and security?

I believe it is one of the most important aspects of a relationship to feel secure, exude confidence and use our best judgment as often as possible. I believe this is the key ingredient to love. If you are successful in your friendships and your familyships, then you should introduce those same values into your relationships. The rules of love are the same for each relationship in your life. People want to be trusted, respected and treated as real people, not as property and not as people who owe you something, especially all of their time. Just as you expect your own space and freedoms, as well as trust, the person you date desires these things to. Give and you shall receive.

Day Two of Cleanse: Chips and Dip???

Posted in friendship, health, lifestyle with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2010 by jentonelli

Well, our school was shut down due to the rain which was pretty sick, however, I received 4 texts simultaneously about snacks, movies and couching it. The four of us met at the grocery store and I swear I only bought two large Perrier Lime sparkling waters. I was going to just snack on something I already had at home, i.e. nuts, fruit, anything remotely healthy. Well, my dearest friends bought cape cod potato chips and a life-size bucket of french onion dip. After about 4 olives, I decided F this, I’ll have some chips, it’s vacation, let’s go wild. A few chips turned into a chip-induced coma, as my friends watched Benjamin Button, I passed out for the next 3 hours and woke up with a chip-dip hangover. Moral of the story: food really does alter my energy levels and my mood, but snacking and snuggling are two of my favorite things and I enjoyed every moment of it.


Now — a smoothie for dinner and trying to resist the temptation of beginning my vacation today. I must do homework since I have 7 days off… God, help me.
