green berry smoothie & toe shoes


you know i'm weird, and i suppose this takes it to a new level. now i expect to become a complete social outcast, but that's okay - because my feet will be comfortable. also, i just don't give a damn what people think. if someone doesn't want to be friends because i have awesome footwear, well then they can't be that cool, can they? (the answer is nope.)

the shoes were pretty expensive but they're the birthday present i asked for from my parents. WOOT. the company is really cool of course. check 'em out here. i bought mine at MEC (another great organization).

i had to throw this photo in here, my cat is too adorable. her name's sugar. now time for a smoothie! our blueberries are going crazy and it makes me sing, SO MANY BLUEBERRIES. thus i have taken to freezing them, making them even better in smoothies. today's elixir was blueberries, strawberries, banana and dino kale.

blueberry smoothie: serves one

1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1-2 cups kale/spinach
1-2 cups vegan milk/water
stevia, if desired

blend all of it up and drink it down! <3

here's the song for today. you gotta love da brat.

Your green smoothie looks delish, I would love to take a sip right now ;) and your kitty is simply the cuttest - reminds me of my little brat at home.

I just got a pair of Vibrams for my birthday last week too!! They're purple :D I feel so much more connected to nature when I run outside now.

Em von Euw said...

I've been training in my Five Fingers for over a year and I absolutely love them. The only downside? My feet grew 1/2 size, and nearly all of my shoes are too small for me now. So. Sad. But! If you don't have a high arch, you shouldn't have any problem :) Hope you had a lovely birthday!

PS - get ready for awesome calf muscles. Oww oww!

Hey Emily!
I've got some Vibram Komodo Sport toe shoes and I LOVE THEM! Have had them for a year and they are amazing! I highly recommend using socks with them (special toe socks) for they really cut out or cut down on the STINK that the shoes get if you go barefoot in them. Just a tip! Every time I wear the shoes in public, it never fails to strike up a conversation with a stranger. Someone says "What are those shoes!" Well, let me tell you! I love it!

I don't care either what people think about them. They are comfortable as hell, and exercise my legs and calves (oh yeah!) I wear them working out, in the kitchen (hard tile floors and my legs DON'T hurt)when playing and prepping for hours, running errands/ shopping, going to farmers market, etc. Just don't go into the garden with them - don't want them getting muddy or dirty. I love your pink ones - cool!

You're kitty, Sugar, looks like our Daphne. They could be twins.

Lucky YOU with the blueberry bushes! I have 4 bushes (they're new this year) and got a small handful off each. In years to come, I can't wait!! Your smoothie resembles mine often! They rock my world!

Have a great weekend! :)

oh that's so cool, ashlae! except the part where you outgrew all your shoes >< mine fit really well but i've still got lots of room; plus my feet grow reaaaally slow.

thank you! woot yeah i was doing calf raises in them and they're so easy because the shoes are uber flexible =)

Em von Euw said...

ahahah yes! i had a party last night and was showing them off to EVERYONE <3 i have toe socks so i'm good to go. thanks for the tip ;) i love them.

@Anonymous - I have a Canon 50D with the 1.8/50 mm lens. These photos were taken with the Canon T2i and the standard lens though :)
