Operation Gosling - Success!

Hello lovelies!
Hope all has been well during this dreary, rainy November. I've been on antibiotics like its my day job ,not much social activity for me. I've had to live vicariously through Bridget Jones and Colin Firth to get me through the rough times. 

As you know, cultivating your inner gosling can be a lot of talk. Wouldn't it just be easier if a cute boy just walked over to you? I just like to work on looking fabulous, My newest theory though is that those possible "Goslings" out there are just as intimidated as you. Its not like there are signs of who's in a relationship and who's not, or is that girl beside you a friend.. or more? My darling roommate and I were out and about last night (studying, I'd rather not) for our good friend's birthday. It seemed to be an extremely attractive night at the bar for the boys, and I'm not just saying that. I have high standards. Even though it seemed like a billion boys (yes, that many) were looking at us, none were coming up. This is when I found my gumption - Please see The Holiday.

This was the game plan we created. Scope, separate and succeed. I actually just made that up... but it was along those lines.  What else was I saying to myself and outloud" LET'S CULTIVATE OUR INNER GOSLING."Guess what? SUCCESS! I was even asked to dance.

So next time your at the bar and see a cute boy, just say hi. If it fails, well your girlfriends will be there to console you and make fun of you of just another embarrassing moment. That's what friends are for.

Good luck studying!

Happy Birthday Mr. Gosling!

On this blessed day, 32 years ago a boy was born and forever men would never again meet women's standards. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RYAN!

Some lovely youtube user  created this video, among others out there.
All I can say is, amount of hearts that you've broken Ryan.. oh you'll never know.

On this day I would like to thank you for everything that you given woman across the world. For without you our lives would b forever changed.
- Who would know what a tearjerker is without The Notebook?
- Who could make blood seem so sexy in Drive?
- Who could make Politics even slightly interesting with Ides of March?

or could just make any picture look so good!

Hey Ryan.. love me.

With out him I'd have no idea what an ideal man should be, have no man to worship and no one to blog about in hopes of blog fame.
So Happy Birthday Ryan, I wish you a year of happiness, love and success but most importantly that you'll discover me!

Happy Halloween!

 "In Girl World, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it."

This quote isn't so much for me this year but Mean Girls speaks the truth. I can't help that its raining and too cold! Enjoy this song from Ryan's Band! Happy Halloween!

Who knows, maybe you'll meet someone dressed up as Ryan. Wouldn't that be the best? One can dream!

Season Opener

Did I stop blogging? I just though of it as a build up of anticipation. Let us think of it as a hiatus break in television terms that makes that Grey's Anatomy premiere that much sweeter.
Side note - Could Dr. Avery could be my one love...? Those baby blues are too much for me sometimes.

For this blog I even searched 8tracks with the term " Ryan Gosling". Shocking eh? to set the tone for this blog. He's so talented. You all know how I feel about a casual morning courtyard serenade.

I can't say I haven't been thinking of Ryan through this hiatus. I plan a meet cute most days for when I meet MY gosling. For those of you that don't know what a meet cute is, I'll update you. Also feel free to watch the Holiday that spread this term like wild fire or spread it to me! A meet cute is when two people meet in a quirky cute way - duh?! My personal favourite was when I was in high school I used  to imagine meet cute with my dog, Diesel. I used to walk my dog quite frequently as my parents are slave drivers. In this time my dream was to run into a cute dog walking boy and well fall in love perhaps? A standard situation I suppose. It did not necessarily have to involved getting wrapped up in the dog's leashes, though how adorable would that be?! It could have been active participation on his part to see me all the time in my seasonal pink jackets and just have to meet me! Is that called stalking? I'm down. Back to my point, I always thinking of my gosling. Right now my meet cute is a meeting at night that leads us to a romantic setting of getting drunk food together. Not that romantic but I'm just trying to be a realistic modern girl. How times have changed! I will never give up on my dog walking meet cute though.

 If my explanation wasn't enough check this out. Who doesn't love Urban Dictionary!

Recently I brought out my inner gosling out for pre Halloween celebrations. I dressed up as Fifty Shades of Grey, which as you all know, I openly believe Christian Grey was modelled after the one and only Ryan.  I'm so sassy that I just created a sash of paint chips.. creating 50 shades of Grey though it was probably more like 18 but don't hold it against me. A Mr. Grey wasn't found quite yet. Can we address how creepy it is when people are wearing masks at the bar. Thank you. 

Until than I have found a substitute to soothe my lonely, cold nights.... okay it doesn't actually exist but someone get on it. I'm sure it would be the best seller for all single ladies around Christmas time!

Stay safe in the wrath of Hurricane Sandy everyone! 
Until next time! xxx

Colour me Ryan.

You must know you've hit an all time fame high when a colouring book of you is being published. But can we really expect anything less from Ryan?Why should kids be colouring Barbie when they could help shade in Ryan's six pack? Either way were letting the future generations have unrealistic expectations for how they look so why not about their future prince charming, or not so charming. 

It really shows that anything is possible if you just believe aka I better have my own colouring book soon. That would make Ryan and I soul mates. Jealous?

Excuse me while I get my copy...

Is it wrong that every time I hear Christian Grey I think of Ryan Gosling? A bit of a #whitegirlproblem I suppose or #Goslingproblem?!Lets get this trending on twitter, shall we?

I'm currently have one of the worst cases of strep throat my doctor has ever seen. My life has basically turned into my blog, ryan gosling and dreaming of eating food.  Currently I'm browsing recipes which I wouldn't recommend unless you are able to swallow whole foods, unlike me....
I did stumble upon this...
50 Shades Girls Night Anyone?

Cultivating our Inner Grey

Hello fans, followers and friends,

Sorry for the lack of bloggin' this month. I was traveling France in search of Ryan for the past two weeks. Unfortunately no such luck but the fact that I discovered I find the French men are too skinny for my liking but was able to become a bronzed beach babe in my humble opinion.  Which as I hope you all know by now, nothing makes anyone look ten times better than a great tan.

Throughout my travels or shall I say in the first three days...  I successfully finished the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy and can truthfully say I am currently going through Christian Grey withdrawal. This sexy smile, romantic notions and success. I'm weak at the knees even thinking about him. Though he definitely had his flaws ( which is probably an understatement). Christian Grey did have the looks, charm, drive, well traveled, non smoker and sex appeal and sooo much more. The more I think about his features the more he sounds like my perfect man... minus some  of his kinky f*****y and larger than life issues but who cares?! After having these realizations, I contemplated should I be cultivating my inner Christian Grey instead!!?

Shocking right?

This would never happen but its definitely a valid thought. Maybe for this week will name him our Gosling of the Week. For being everything our Gosling is minus the baggage. The fact that Ryan Gosling has been offered to play the role of Christian Grey in the feature film only proves this point and let us pray that he accepts. How it is possible they can make this trilogy into movies or soft core porn I'm sure many woman, as well as myself will be excited to see. Who know's maybe I will soon be discovered for all that I am and I will play Anastasia and Ryan and I will follow madly in love. Who is Eva Mendes away?! pshhhhhh

Fellow lovers of Ryan let us pray that he will accept this role of Christain Greyand make our dreams a reality!

50 Shades of Gosling.

So you all have probably heard of 50 Shades of Grey, the erotic romance trilogy that has climbed to the top of the New York Time's bestseller list. Well, at first I didn't know it was erotic romance, because when is that stuff EVER on the New York Time's best seller list!? and I saw some ads in people magazine... Naturally I asked my father to purchase the trilogy for me thinking it was your usual chick lit and was sadly mistaken. Since I had these books just here for the taking and after hearing rave reviews and other not so rave reviews I figured I might as well check it out for myself. 
I'm close to being done the first novel of the trilogy and I'm still unsure what to think of it. There is some really, well kind of horrifying stuff. There are two things that are keeping me reading though. 1. To finish at least the first book to see what the hype is about and 2.  because imagine Christian Grey as Ryan Gosling and it is my sole wish to Hollywood that if this series is turned into a movie that this role must be played by him. Thoughts? Could there ever be a creature more ravishing than Ryan, even in a fictional world?!

On a side note this is probably the most ingenious sign I've ever seen and if I'm ever that close to Ryan I will hold a sign as hysterical and accurate as this. Though with one look between Ryan and I, my sign will be as quickly thrown to the side as Eva Mendes.... 
Can't fight fate!

The race is on....

Today I received life changing news on my Twitter feed. Miley Cyrus is officially engaged to Liam Hemsworth!!!

Girls everywhere can no longer fantasize that they will marry or well f**k Liam. Am I right or am I right?! This is not a situation when one is ecstatic for the people that they have never met saying what a cute couple they are and how cute there babies will be ( in this case extremely attractive). For those of you who don't know, which should be no one! Liam Hemsworth is a GOD (or close). He's basically almost as perfect as our Gosling. He's gorgeous, fit, talented and has an accent. Does any girl need more than this?! NO. Therefore you an all understand the frustration, which I'm assuming most of you are also going through that we will never be the one's to marry him. Please cue the sad dramatic music and pass me the cookie dough.

Can we also address that he knows how to buy good jewellery?! This is all too much.

Not only is Miley sealing the deal but so are too many people around me for my liking. As calculated by one of my besties if we want to get married before were thirty and want to date for at least two years before getting engaged well we need boyfriends NOW. Should we really be 19, 20 years old worrying about when were going to get our diamond! Can't everything just fall into place? Are we supposed to have accounts online to date already? With the fact that 75% of people that get married under 25 get divorced. What's the rush?

Where is this man telling me "I like you just the way you are".... preferably in a british accent? 

Right now all I can hope for is that by the time I'm famous, Liley will have split and I can catch Liam for another walk down the aisle. Until than...

Don't ever change.

In the infamous words of Gordo to Lizzie Mcguire " You Rock, Don't ever Change" it definitly applies to our  main man, Ryan. The fact that more men haven't caught on to Ryan's "swaggy"(oh yes, I just went there...) is ahhhmazing. Guys, pull it together would ya? It would be THAT much easier if Ryan's were a dime and a dozen, but than again I guess it would take away from my future husband's swag.  A girl can dream can't I? well you know this form reading my blog ;)

For all of not to love this man, he would have to stop doing so much....
Can we also address how much of a lucky betch Emma Stone is for not only being in one movie with Ryan, but two?!!!

He ever tries to make the world a better place! and hangs out in his home country, and my home country. Fate anyone?

All I can say is that Ryan can reprimand me any day. As well as having to start hanging out in the annex in hope of another sighting.

So Ryan,
Would you be my boyfriend? Imagine if Ryan did a cover of this?

My Exception - Ryan's latest.

I guess this is a good time for Ryan to use his natural voice? Am I right, it does sound like he has a  Boston accent right? Are we really sure he's Canadian....

 Ryan will be back to theatres near you in The Gangster Squad, which will be released in September just to help us get our Gosling fix as we head back to school.
Our man is back with one of my ultimate favourites Emma Stone. Like if Emma and I ever met we would be friends we would be drinking chardonnay like classy betches and talking how we wish we were more like Tina Fey or Cher Horowitz (Clueless), dining at Nobu ( great sushi, Fodor's lies though! I never saw any celebrities!!!). I would also giver her the advice she needs such as telling her to die her hair back to red immediately after filming The Ahhmazing Spiderman because it just looks so much better, no matter what Andrew Garfield would say. What do boys know anyways?! Back to the point... were they not just adorable in their last summer flick, Crazy Stupid Love? They will probably be the hottest couple to fight crime since Bradgelina. 

I'm not going to lie as you probably well know this isn't my type of film, considering 99.9% of the movies I watch are romantic comedies. Ryan's my exception... and if him and Emma Stone actually fall in love well that would be even better!

Check it out the trailer.

Call Me Maybe?

Some people have really taken Carly Jepsen's song lyrics to heart....

My darling roommate shared this with me a couple days ago.I think this is quite a novel idea. A friend of mine even gave "business cards" similar to this at a bar for her friends birthday to good looking guys. Though Carly's idea is rather simple maybe its something to think about.  Friends of mine always seem to worry about asking guys out. Though its nice to be courted of course, it doesn't always happen. So should we start being more cavalier with our call me maybes? Do we need to take more chances? For all we know that same guy is just as nervous as you! Who knows.. maybe even Ryan has his off days? 

In an age were woman are trying to move forward to embrace their inner independent career woman, it seems were still very backwards in the way we think about dating. If we aspire to live in a time where men and woman will be paid the same, treated the same, and not constantly asked to make sandwiches can we afford to have this way of thinking? Will it hold you, me or society back? Maybe we just need to channel our inner Beyonce ( #1 independent career woman) and go for it. If we have nothing to lose but everything to gain why don't we just DO IT.
Food for thought.

Summer project: Calling cards. Who knows I could even show my degrees?! MRS degree to be exact....

Millionaire Matchmaker?

Hello my Darlings!
Though my scope for my very own Ryan Gosling has not quiet yet happened.. it turns out I may have the ability to make it happen for other people.
The other night was my last night in London for this school year. As any party going adolescent, friends and I adventured out to the bars. At one of our favourite places they have a band on Thursday night. We spent most of our night dancing in front of the band. My one friend was ogling the hot bass player the whole night. I don't know what came over me but in between sets I stepped onto stage and said
"My friend in the front, blond, leggy one over there. She likes you. Talk to her after the show or she'll be here next week." because who needs to study for finals anyways?...
The next song, Skinny Love by Bon Iver was dedicated to my dear friend.
What I would do for a dedication but alas....
 He approached her after and well.. Is it right to kiss and tell for her? Probably not. But good things came of it.
So either I need to have someone to become my millionaire matchmaker or become it for myself? I think I may see a glimmer of Mr. Gosling in myself.
Try it out kids. Maybe "I like you" could be the newest pick up line?
Ya never know. 

Sunday, 15 April 2012


Its that time of year again friends.. Finals.
To make studying a little better, a my dear friend decided to make her own personal hey girl.
May the force of Ryan Gosling be with you.

Sunday, 1 April 2012

So the reason I haven't been posting is I haven't been even close to finding my gosling.. so disappointing! 
I will say I have been being on my best game in the everyday to make sure I am as attractive as possible 24/7. Maybe we blame it on the fact that I hate Canadian winters, and my pasty skin isn't attractive to.. well anyone. Really all I want is to find someone to serenade me with One Direction's what makes you beautiful. Maybe I should become a groupie? the next Penny Lane perhaps...?

This picture my dear friend Elise sent me and it really brightened my day.
I hope it brightens yours. 

I'd like to imagine that Ryan will some day look lovingly into my eyes like that..
A girl can dream right?

Sorry for the long delay of blog posts. Unfortunately my education doesn't realize that there are some things more important.. than well, my education.

To update you with my pursuit of Ryan Gosling.. well it could be going better. Partially because well I'm lazy and why can't some pursue me?! and two, where do you meet men with souls ( maybe that's a tad dramatic) but.. not at bars I tell you.
I actually just learnt that apparently you can meet them if you play sports so... even though I'm not super athletic I'd say I'm going to join an intramural flag football team next year though hopefully I'll meet my Ryan Gosling sooner than that.

As I have been gone for so long I have adapted and learned to lurveeeee Ryan's band... like actually.
So soothing, especially when in study mode... or when blogging about your inner Gosling.

If you frequent Facebook you may have noticed the newest tumblr fad. I'm just posing this one because  who doesn't love pizza and well its's Ryan

This reminds me that one of the key things to keep in mind when cultivating your inner Gosling is looking the part! I made this mistake last week when making photocopying in the library and I discovered there are cute boys in my program! We briefly bonded over how to photocopy, but if I looked better I would have had the confidence to more aggressively pursue this aka get his name.

I found this looking up hello giggles and well its just kind of witty. Also since this involves a scene from drive can we address how I still found Ryan sexy ( and you probably did too) after he had murdered several people and continued to walk around with blood on his jacket. Desensitization of the media? or is their really nothing better than Mr. Gosling.
Check this video out.

I hope have you enjoyed my post back into the blogging world. Please remember to contact me with suggestions, comments or follow me on twitter because I am oh so witty @AlexaReigh

Hope you all have a fabulous St. Patricks Day.. I know I will.

Wednesday, 7 March 2012

Its been a busy time for me but let us not forget that when the world is hectic we always have Ryan. Now that the warm weather is here as well.. the cute boys that play football on my street don't hurt either. This tweet was brought to my attention by a dear friend. There are no words that I find more true.

Press play first.. than read.

I finally watched Drive with our man Ryan and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. The film is about a driver (Gosling obviously) and how he drives for people that are committing illegal crimes. Pretty straight forward right? Also probably had the smallest script ever. Ryan played a better version of Ryan Atwood, always bruiting, barely smiles and is able to convey everything with just a look. This movie was remarkably well done but lets focus more on the star himself. 

We must acknowledge how talented Ryan is first of all with his wide range of characters. This kind of work requires Drive( I'm so punny).. wait wasn't that one of my non negotiable? yes, your right. He was sensitive, kind and bruiting. Your typical bad boy, who doesn't want one of those? 

I will for warn you it is rather gory, I will admit I had to fast forward through some parts but if your into intense killings scene and Ryan, well this is the film for you. 

I must commend Ryan's ability to pull off a jean on jean outfit as well. I don't think I've ever seen a male look so.. beautiful and bad ass. Secondly, ugh it's Ryan.

Bottom Line. Ryan you can drive my car any day.

@whitegrlproblem "A Gosling-free Oscar night is a night for getting blackout wasted, crying, and texting your ex to come over." We were deprived people. Our man totally should have been nominated for this. I like Moneyball as much as the next person but did really Jonah Hill got nominated and not Ryan?.. just saying. 

Monday, 27 February 2012

Sorry, its not negotiable...

My room mates read about this in a Cosmo magazine or something of that sort and its seemed to dominate many dinner conversations. The question is what are your 5 non negotiable. Here are mine

1. Smoking
I might be able to deal with social smoking but smoking in general is not an attractive habit to me. Not only their breath but the smoke sticks to everything like the inside of your car, your house. No thanks. 
2. Must have a wide palette for cuisine 
Imagine dating someone that was a picky eater. We could never go for dim sum or sushi or Thai?! It just would not work. 
3. Must be somewhat talkative 
Now yes as you can probably assume form my blog I'm rather chatty but this does not mean that I want to do all the talking. I need dialogue!
4. Drive
I need someone that has passion, has a goal and is going to make it happen. Otherwise, where are we going?...
5.  I'm kind of undecided on this one for the present moment.. humour, ability to serenade, me a good dresser. As I shuffle through the many different versions of Ryan I will just see.

Right now I'd say it would be a combination of Jacob's (Crazy Stupid Love) confidence, wealth, good style and charm with Noah's (The Notebook) sensitivity, his romantic side and  drive ( he built her a house!) So if there is a man out there like this.. call me. 

I suggest you try to figure out yours because once you find out what you don't want aren't we that much closer to finding a guy we like?.. lets hope.

Sing to me!

Dearest Followers,
I'm sorry for my lack of attention to my blog. I can only imagine the disappointment you have been facing everyday, not having any witty commentary about a single ladies life.  Thankfully, I'm still here!
So today were not going to just talk about Ryan, but really my undying want and need to be serenaded
 (hopefully on key) by an attractive man with all the other traits I so desire. 

How many times have you seen in a TV show or movie where you were just picturing that doe eyed boy singing you that same love song but you! 

For all you Chad Michael Murray, Dawson Creek loving, 90s nostalgic people.. there's this.
Yeah, Joey your dad went to prison and your mom died BUT how many boys instantly fell for her?! Maybe I just need to pick up her bitchy, puppy eyed look or start tucking my hair behind my ear constantly. I may have found the secret! Focusing on CMM remarkable performance though, how cute was that?!

A little more recently one of our favourite HSM stars turned sexiest man alive was serenading Ellen! 
I may just have to put this as a pro on my list of whether or not I'll become a talk show host. Don't judge.Also how is it that as guys gets older, he fills out, gets facial hair and just becomes ten times hotter but woman, well look a lot worse. Really?! Anyways, please enjoy this. 
I also sincerely hope their not dating because Zac needs to become mine if Mr. Gosling is unavailable...

Ryan Gosling is also adorrrrable in this trailer! I have yet to see Blue Valentine because I have been told of its depressing nature and also have been informed that its like soft porn so.. I'll probably wait til I find my Ryan just so I don't spiral down. I love the trailer though!

Last but not least the scene that gave me chills, Say Anything!

So boys this is just an FYI, you can serenade me anytime. Also slow dancing in a burning room like Seth and Summer in an O.C. montage could also be acceptable.

Crazy Stupid Love

Happy Belated Valentines day kits and cats! I hope you all had a fabulous day even for you single ladies like me! Personally, I think its a great excuse to consume mass amounts of chocolate and get drunk off champagne!
Pink champagne and dollar store vday flutes.
What could be better?

My Valentine, Melissa Fox
While procrastinating studying for my midterm I decided to watch Crazy Stupid Love. Ever since I saw this movie in the summer it has become one of my favourite comedies! It also made me realize that Ryan Gosling is the man for me.

Do I find you attractive Ryan? Do you need to ask?!

Ryan's character in this movie embodies many of the qualities I would love in a man. He's a good dresser, charming, confident, unbelievably attractive and rich. Are there even men like this out there? Though he has really no ambitions in life other than to get woman, I could make it exception to my non negotiable. Emma Stone's character is even able to reveal the sensitive side of him! What more does one want?!

To harness my inner Gosling I must try to be more confident, more forward and well I'm already extremely charming (and watch the scene over several times). Even Emma Stone's character harnessed her inner Gosling! Need I say more?!

Hey Girl..

Hey girl, If you swiffer my place I'll swiffer yours.
There is a photo of Ryan saying this on my bedroom door as well as several other fantastic photos from the best blog ever, around my house. If you haven't read it please do so now and reevaluate how your spending your free time?

Ryan loved it too...
Don't you just feel 10x better seeing his face?! 

This blog has brought me endless amounts of happiness. Recently a friend and I even designed photos for my friends Clara. It was a smash success needless to say.

Some of the captions were:
"Hey Girl, Let fight for gender equality together"
"Hey Girl, I get so sad when we can't watch Gilmore girls together"
"Hey Girl, I love how your so comfortable in the nude"

I'm a great friend..

Anyways I just found another site similar to Hey Girl, but for brides to be! Though I'm not getting married today, hopefully when I find my Mr. Gosling I will have these loveable photos in my time of need. Like when my mom's forcing me to wear her dress from the 80s with shoulder pads.. Its going to be needed.

Hello friends and fellow Gosling lovers, I'm sorry to report that I did not find love in a hopeless place last night. This could have been effected by my consumption of drinks last night but none the less, I will forge on. Even my room mates mother is applauding my efforts to find a man. She found this wonderful cake shaped as Ryan Gosling's face. Friends and family that are reading this.. my birthday president please? That or the man himself. Its not that much to ask I think...
Thanks again Sally!
My main man.

Crazy for you...

Lately I've been watching perhaps too many Ryan Gosling Interviews. But when your trying to cultivate your inner Gosling, what is too much?

I've learned several things:
1) Ryan has an accent that sounds like Boston or Chicago, but he grew up in Cornwall, very close to London, Ontario. I choose Western University just based on the fact that there would be a higher chance of having a Gosling sighting. That's a lie but it's a nice bonus.

2)Ryan was in the Mickey Mouse Club?! with our other favourites such as Brit, JT and Xtina. Seriously so aggravated that my parents did not audition me(even though I may or may not have been born yet).  I could have danced as well as any other musketeer with a denim on denim outfit. Af I could have been famous by now!

3)He's so funny. I think Ryan and I could stay up late chatting when we wed just having a laugh.

This is one of my favourite interview I've watched because of his humour, patriotism and his unbelievable charm.
"I wasn't talented" - Gosling.. yeah as if.

Check this one out too! No idea why they are cycling but who cares? I died. RYAN SEND ME FOOTSIE PYJAMAS PLEASE!

Now I'll I have to do is become as charming and funny. I thought I was but really seeing Ryan in all his glory, I have nothing on him. So much to learn ladies and gents! So much to learn...

To all those girls that ride..

This is a shout out to my friend Clara Bartlett along with you equestrian girls. Who knew you and Ryan had so much in common?

This one's probably my personal fave and reminds me of my dear friend clarbear!

Dream out Loud... or on a Board?

True to my word, I have accomplished my first ever vision board! My friend and I choose to do it together. She searched for photos of Beyonce and sexually explicit photos I searched for photos of fame, fortune and really good looking men, and a killer beach bode. Though there is one photo of Ryan  its only because the massive obsession has not spread to Teen Vogue and Cosmo's recent issues. I figured Dr. Avery and Logan Huntzberger would be close seconds. My plan is to hang this board in my room and view this collage of photos to inspire me to work toward my dreams. I even have a photo of Barack Obama because my future husband will be as drive, successful and as a good father as him. And between you and I, I would do ANYTHING.. for Barack. Behold photos of my board!

Could you please look at Avery's baby blues?!
Just another evening spent crafting with Melizzle Ice

The boys on my vision board are pretty consuming,
thats okay though.

Final product minus the additional sparkles

The Notebook

As I said before this endeavour gave me the chance to watch the notebook, yet again. This time it was a little different. I tried to pick up the best features that I can take on for my inner Gosling!
- He looks good with scruff. This may not be manageable for me..
- He has amazing patience... waiting for the love of his life to come back and all
- Incredible shoulders (I should start rowing)
- He reads poetry. Isn't he sensitive?
- He can say so much in so little. See below. 

And for all of you who have never seen the notebook, bow your head and shame, drop everything and watch it NOW.

The Beginning to the End..

Love is scarce in a day and age where girls are no longer asked on dates or even to dance. The world seems pretty hopeless for finding a prince that sweeps you off your feet like Cinderella's man, or even Hilary's Duff's in A Cinderella Story. I'm a sucker for Chad Michael Murray... but thats not the point. There someone ever better who we we all worship. We, meaning 300 million woman, and myself. Any of us would hook up with him, no questions asked if we ever saw him at the bar.


He's the guy that was snubbed of sexiest man alive in 2011, rows a boat like no other in the middle of various storms in multiple movies, and his abs make me want to cry. Ryan Gosling? Oh yeah, HIM.

I'm a single university student. 

Yes, university is what everyone claimed it to be but so help me, I just can't seem to find a man. I'm a tall, relatively attractive, extremely talkative, driven, smart girl looking for my own rom-com fairytale. I "specialize" in extreme cleaning, cooking and crock pots. Could someone hand me my Mrs Degree already? Then again, the crock pot has apparently gotten me no where and neither did getting extremely intoxicated last Thursday night, so I've decided to do something about it.

This blog will be dedicated to my new pursuit of cultivating my inner Ryan Gosling!

Now, I won't take all the credit for this genius idea. Actually, my wise, edgy 25 year old (so old to be so wise right?) friend suggested this man-hunting method. She, like me, was hopeless and losing faith everyday about finding a respectable man to feed her and have fun with (because that's really all woman want.. isn't it?). With hopes that one day love would arrive in her life, she took her celebrity crush Ryan Gosling, and well, focused on him... a lot. She thought about him 5 or 6 times a day, watched his movies, and listened to all the soundtracks of his movies. She decided that in order to attract her own Ryan Gosling, she need to encompass everything Ryan Gosling is. Therefore, using this newfound method, I will spend the next little while cultivating the Ryan Gosling in me. Now this may sound kind of unlikely, but my wise older friend has found herself a really cute bartender/singer/songwriter and they are happily dating. With this inspiration in my mind,  I'm going to see if she's really on to something. 

I plan to dive deep into my soul to find my inner Gosling, a pursuit I plan on taking to an even further level than my older and wiser friend. My plan includes watching every interview Ryan's ever had, listening to his band's entire discography, and of course, it gives me an excuse to watch The Notebook an obscene amount of times. I will even be making vision boards.

I dedicate my first blog post to all the single woman out there  who will hopefully benefit, if not just get a laugh, from my endeavour. Who knows? I may be on the brink of finding the secret to finding my one true love. I can dream can't I?
