Happy Fucking New Year.

Well, that's one way of spelling it out...

On behalf of this special occasion, I thought I would post my new year's resolutions:
1. Volunteer 2 times a month
2. Get 6 pack abs
3. Stay a vegetarian
4. Go to New York
5. Become a supermodel
But, you know, in no particular order. :)

Best Vegetarian Fast Food

BK's Veggie Burger

Subway's Veggie Max

Over the holiday my mom said to me:

Mother: You still a vegetarian?
Me: Yup.
Mother:'re really holding on to that one.

Nice. Well, since I've been a vegetarian for two whole months now, I've been dabbled in the vegetarian fast food sector. My results, (in order of preference) are as listed above.
1. BK's Veggie Burger
It's not quite a burger, but it's damn good. They flame broil it, and smother it in cheese-just the way I like it. Order it with fries, and coke, you're good to go. And with only 360 calories, and 13 grams of protein, you know it's a better choice than a Whopper!
2. Chipotle's Vegetarian Burrito
Amazing. That's pretty much all I can say about this one. I can't eat a whole one, but split it with a friend, and a $3 meal isn't bad! (Don't forget to add their ridiculously good lime hinted tortilla chips!)
3. Subway's Veggie Max Sandwich
I'll admit it- I'm not Subway's biggest fan. But this sandwich (be sure to order it with pepper jack cheese) isn't bad. Standing in at 390 for calories (in a 6") it's definitely something I'd put on my go-to list if I were you.

Hope this has helped, and stay tuned for more veggie friendly tips! :)

Photoshoot Last Night

Worked with an amazingly talented photographer last night. We did a photo shoot last night until 2am! I was so excited to work with him because he is an art major, with such a unique eye. You can see some of his work here. It was a lot of fun because we really collaborated. I wanted to do a high fashionish shoot in a laundry room. Me in a gown and dirty laundry scattered about. I am really excited to see how they turned out! We also did a scene on a couch, a couple shots of my tattoo and one with me in a leopard print gown, eerie lighting and a chair. I am stoked to see them, stay posted, I'll have the pics in 2-3 weeks! :)

Relaps #1 / Restaurant Review: Key Bridge Mariott's Revival

photo: Courtesy of the Key Bridge Marriott

Finlay ate in Rosslyn at the Key Bridge Marriott's first floor restaurant, Rivival. Until Dec 31st, on Mondays they have a $6 special. This $6 meal includes a root beer (or orange) float, the 'Mighty Mo' double burger, fries (or onion rings), and a pickle. I've known about this deal for a month now, and I've always said, if I make it out there I have to review that burger! So I made the hike in 30 degree weather the 3 block walk off the orange or blue Rosslyn Metro stop. The wait staff was, all right, the burger tasted like it was straight out of the freezer, and the fries and onion rings were over cookies. But I've got to say it was a damn good root beer float.

Five out of ten rating = "Alright" restaurant.

I might go back and get the Lobster Mac & Cheese I saw on the menu for $12... and a root beer float, but I definitely would not relaps on meat for their burgers.

Newest Pics. You can click on each picture and see them larger! I am also on the photographer's website under "Portfolio II." :)

Nike 6.0 Skater Shoes NOT EVEN ON THE MARKET!

Have you seen these in the stores? HELL NO that's because they aren't even out yet! My brother works for Nike and hooked me UP. With not one, but two brand new, straight from the factory kicks. These kicks are so fresh, they don't even have a box yet, they came in the factory bag with Chinese written all over it. Hell yes! Keep your eye out for these to come out, then you too can rock these... in a couple months. ;P

Me With The Portland Trailblazer Dancers

So my awesome brother hooked us up seats in the Rose Garden party suite, aka 3 suites put together and our own private bartendar. While we were there the Blazer dancers came up! So of course I had to get a pic with them. :) They were all very sweet, and the game was a blast!
