Shoot for the Stars Not For the Cup!

Note this post is not for you:

If your idea of meditation is taking deep breaths before taking shots…

If the only exercise you get during the week is grinding at the club on the weekend…

If you find yourself quoting the Jersey Shore or relate too much to the cast…

If you work hard on your six pack…of beer…

 Funneling… Flipping… Shots… Shotgun… I don’t know but the “lets chug three beers in 2.5 seconds to get really drunk,” concept just never made sense to me. Although it’s a great way to prevent tasting beer, I’d rather use this gadget to chug wheatgrass or something beneficial to my health.

 That being said, I could probably count on two hands how many beers I have had in my life…and that’s just because I have used the beverage as a hair treatment (yes washing your hair with beer coats and repairs damage and gives it body!). So I guess the drink has gotten to my head…just in a different way.

Like many of my colleagues I graduated with a BA degree…however, for me that does not stand for a “beer addiction.”  Let’s just say, I couldn’t wait to graduate college! Since sophomore year, I realized I wanted to be the next Giuliana Rancic and dreamed of being asked the question

“who are you wearing” at parties rather than… “what are you drinking?”

Don’t get me wrong, I love to have fun and enjoy drinking delicious cocktails (without making a disgusted face from the taste). Luckily, my friend Lauren and I saw eye to eye on this subject and instead of struggling to keep a beer down we decided to keep up with our classes, look  up to other positive women we aspire to be, and stand up for who we are.

 I’d rather sip and enjoy my drink like a lady and stay healthy rather than chug like a frat boy. Drinking high calorie cocktails can leave many women feeling like they have to strap on the spanks. However, you can sip Bethenny Frankel’s line of Skinnygirl drinks or your own healthy-made cocktails without sucking it in.


We tried mixing about 3 oz of our favorite vodka with Kombucha instead of soda or other sugary drinks, saving us about 100 calories. G.T.’s Kombucha drinks are made with raw Kombucha, and other fresh press juices and probiotics to nourish your body from the inside out. With antioxidants and organic acids such as EGCG, Lactic and Acetic Acids, G.T.’s Kombucha drinks are an excellent elixir.

So Class of 2012…stay classy, surround yourself with those who are going to lift you higher…

& shoot for the stars, not for the cup!

  1. My college roommate & I would stay in on Saturday nights and watch the drunken kids stumble home and laugh at them. It was way more entertaining than anything on TV. It got even better when she got a job at a wine importer and got us an employee discount on wine.

    • Haha I would do the same that’s too funny! Sometimes we would sit in the car and literally split ice-cream, enjoy the car’s seat warmers, and watch girls stumble home on Saturday nights…definitely entertaining!

  2. I’d like to thank you for your efforts you have put in offering this web site. I’m hoping the same high-grade internet site post within you in the upcoming also. In reality your innovative writing capabilities has urged me to get my own web site now. Actually the blogging can be spreading their wings fast. Your write up is a good example of this.
