Nerdy Auction Girl's Etsy Shop Now Open

So, I am a long time eBay seller. Recently though, I have decided to start branching out and selling my great vintage finds while thrifting and through estate sales on Etsy and eBay! I will begin to slowly transfer all my vintage finds and exclusively sell them one Etsy!

I love to thrift and scout and scour to find deals to resell. I am going to start to post my stuff on my new blog Nerdy Auction Girl that I am in the process of working on. It is here that I will document my picking, and discoveries of great finds and all my adventures that unfold.

I am super excited to embark on this venture. When the Nerdy Girl Auction site is up and operational, I will be posting a link from this site.

I Have A New Crush~Jason Silva

Picture via Concrete

So today, I found a new crush! 

There is nothing more appealing than a brilliant, funny. kind hearted and intellectual man. Jason is a game changer, go-getter, idea changer and world changer. There is none other than Mr.Jason Silva. His studies of philosophy and film in college helped him to create a really cool Youtube channel, Shots of Awe. If you love film and philosophy you must subscribe. He does philosophical shorts that are super thought provoking. 

He also recently did an interview with Marie Forleo, the amazing creator of B-School and Marie T.V.. Can I say not only was it a brilliant interview, but he is an all around guy with a great sense of the world. This has to be one of the best interviews yet on Marie T.V. 

I am in awe of what this man is as a whole package, and he is the whole package. His love of learning, growing and wanting to achieve his dreams and live his passion is undeniably sexy. 

I came across another interview with him at I Am That Girl  and he solidified what a man he truly is through connection with his family.

He seems really down to earth and motivated to help others realize how important it is to be you and live the life that you passion for. 

So check out his Youtube Channel, Sots of Awe. This is eye candy at its best!

Flywheel Class

It has been ages since I have done a spinning class. Or what a spinning class used to represent. Tonight I spent 45 minutes of my life in my personal heaven. Flywheel is the "new spinning class" craze. It is a small stadium seating spin class, with lots of awesome music and super "sculpted" instructors.

Granted, I was really nervous about taking a spin class after not having done so in eons. I really worried about if I would be able to keep up and survive without puking or passing out.  If anyone has a clue about spinning, they know how intense and challenging it can be. Sure instructors are quick to tell the newbies, that you can go your own pace, but once the music starts and the vibe in the room starts to permeate, it's on! No one can stop you from challenging yourself and in a sneaky kind of way they want you to challenge yourself against others. Flywheel makes that even easier because they have a competition board. They post the stats as class is in session to motivate you to beat others. Is it a good idea? Well, that is debatable to say the least, but the fact is even if you choose not to participate by having your name on the "Torq Board", you still strive to see if you can match up or at least surpass the score that is closest to yours.

In the end, I had a super amazing workout, and was surprised by my overall achievement. Especially for a "newbie". They track all your stats and email them to you. They also have a Flywheel app that you can use to track stats or book a class. One must reserve a slot in the class. It was mind boggling at first how quick classes fill up or that some even have a waitlist.

Ok, after taking the class, I get it it now, you have to schedule your time around getting your "Flywheel" on.

I had an amazing experience, and I am sadly to say addicted enough, that I am booking a class for this upcoming Saturday (7:30 a.m). Though it is a little on the pricey side. If in the future I can look as hot as I did in my 20's, it will be worth every penny!
