So if you watched the video above you’re in the know. If not…here’s the news…
I’m going to LONDON on Monday!!!! For the Olympics!!!
It’s gonna be my first time in Europe ever and I am going on behalf of YouTube. I am super duper excited to be headed over there and actually more excited that I will be in one place for an extended period of time. This month I honestly have not been at home for like more than 2 days at a time. First it was Anaheim for Vidcon – wait let’s stop for a sec. I never showed you pics!!!!
Harley from Epic Meal Time!!!! YEAHHHH!!!!
Mystery Guitar Man!!!!
WongFu Productions! I really wanna be in one of their web shows…that’d be so cool. My sister loves these guys!
MAJOR FANGIRL MOMENT. It’s Ryan Higa and the YTF crew. I died.
Mr. Chocolate Rain himself. Tay Zonday!!! I could hear his voice from a mile away. It’s as deep talking as it is singing!
…then it was Santa Monica for Livestrongwoman’s “Pilates Bootcamp” filming, then Philly for QVC, and currently I am in Austin, Texas (first time ever in Texas) filming some fitness vids with my friend Mike from SixPackShortcuts.
We filmed a funny group pump up video called “FLEX FRIDAYS” for his channel and then a few workouts together that you’ll be seeing next week!!!
I’m exhausted and my body feels it. In fact, my eating and working out has been all over the place. But you know, oh well, life happens and you gotta go where you gotta go!
I totally wanna do a Euro meetup when I get to London!! For my POPsters in the UK, who thinks they can make it? I don’t know where we should meet and how we should do it as I don’t really have connections over there. Could some of you email me at [email protected] and let me know if you’re interested in coming to a meetup? I’d love to get to know you guys! We could totally do a live class and broadcast it across the world! How fun would that be? I think it’d be awesome.
I’m going to see if we could meetup at the new YouTube headquarters if they have a gym or meeting space there. If not, I will try to reach out to some gyms or something. It’d be nice to actually do POP Pilates to pop music. Otherwise, outside would be cool too.
I never thought I’d be going to Europe this soon, so I am so grateful that YouTube is sending me over there for 3 weeks along with 30 other channels to cover the Games and this awesome city. The program I am a part of is called “Creators Invade London” and there are several “teams” that are participating. My team’s name is Team How to Win and I am the only girl among like 5 other guys. One of the members is a fellow YouTube Next Trainer, Steve Roberts from STRSkillSchool. I am excited to meet him in person! We’ve been virtual friends since the program started like last Fall.
I am stocking up on clothes and shoes in the US as I hear everything over there is SUPER EXPENSIVE. I plan to only buy food, an international SIM card, and maybe a few souvenirs. But you know, I say that now, and it is probably not gonna happen. I don’t know what I will do about my gym situation but I do plan on working out hard, so maybe I should get a month long membership or something. Anyone London POPsters know of any good gyms I could join?
I hear that there are also some pretty cool tours that I should go on. Apparently the dungeon torture chamber tour is all the rage. As freaky and weird as it sounds, I have this quirky affinity towards scary things. As I kid I used to LOVE watching shows like Unsolved Mysteries, Beyond Belief, and reading books about hauntings and paranormal activity. Travel Channel and History Channel are both awesome.
If any of you have suggestions for what I should do while I am there, please let me know in the comments! I’d also love to go hang out with a bunch of you if you’re up for it! We need to get a facebook group together to start planning and talking! Actually…those location groups in the new Blogilates Community would be very helpful right now. (BTW community is in development!!!! SOOOO excited to get it perfected. I’ll let you know when it launches obviously but won’t be for a couple months. So hang tight! Suggestions appreciated!)
Okay, that is all for now! So yeah that was my BIG announcement! I’m headed to London! Excited! But not excited for the 10 hour+ trip over there. Someone please invent teleportation.
Have a fab weekend POPsters!
