2014 Looks Pretty Sexy

Oh hey 2014, you’re looking rather snazzy over there with your charming exercise resolutions and your healthy eating pacts.

GiGi Dubois Chokes on NUUN

What do you think?

Are you attracted to his (or her… whatever you find to be more attractive) stunningly chiseled features?

While I could write a post about resolutions, (don’t grocery shop hungry, get at least 45 minutes of exercise a day, hug someone – yes, even that creepy stalker like person on the street corner deserves a hug – every day), I’d rather make a video

Unfortunately, being in Wyoming right now (visiting family… Not hunting, pumping oil or dancing at a hoedown – however, I would be up for that), has stunted my video making much like caffeine “stunts” developing children’s growth.

That being said, and with the new year ROLLING ON IN… I thought I’d post some of my soooo 2013 favorite videos (and hopefully yours too?)!

Did you get crispy with Kale in 2013?

 

This is just utterly FRAMAZING!

 

January 5, 2014 – The Bachelor starts… Is this show your guilty pleasure, like it is mine?

 

Ice cream never sounded so… TERRIBLE!

 

It’s time to put your do-rag on and get TRICKED OUT with Coolio and the Food Perv!

 

Ma! Whitney and I want THE MEAT LOAF – FACK!

 

And finally… Do you miss those Summertime Salads as much as Lana Del Rey does?!

If you can believe it… I made 40 videos this year – 40!!!

You better believe ANOTHER 40 are coming down the pipeline THIS YEAR!! Are you ready?! I’m not quite sure if I am… Wait, hold up – YES I AM because I was gifted with a new video editing system for CHRISTMAS! THANKS SANTA… Aka: Daniele (my sister!)

SO TELL ME:

  • What are you most looking forward to in the new year?
  • Do you have any video ideas for me?
  • Are you dreaming of sucking the bones off a duck or pounding a mound of tofu?
  • Do you set resolutions? If so, what are you RESOLVING to do this year?
  • What was the best gift you got this holiday season?
  • Isn’t the term “ball drop” a little… Dirty? MIND IN GUTTER, YEP!
  • Which of the above videos is your favorite? Or do you have other video favorites that I didn’t include?
  • Would you rather hump like an Easter Bunny or take shots with a Leprechaun?
  • To vlog or not to vlog… That is the question!

  1. Your kale video CRACKED me up! I do love kale and I eat it, but no one I’ve ever met loves it as much as my mother-in-law. We once had this conversation:
    Me: “I do love kale. I love more what it does for bodies, though.”
    Her: “I love it more than anything.”
    Me: “Well..I mean..cookies and cakes and ice cream? Taste better than kale.”
    Her: “No. I like kale better.”

    • OMG that’s too funny! I feel like my mom and I have had this same conversation – she is a KALE OBSESSED!!!! She eats it day in and day out – just like LEEKS! ha ha! But hey, there are worse things! Happy New Years TAMARA! πŸ˜€

  2. Hahha YES glad to hear more videos are coming!! And glad that Santa aka your sister got you a video editing system. Woohoo! Isn’t Christmas the best? Yes, yes it is. Happy New Year!

  3. My resolution is to take one rest day a week! That’s 52 days of no exercise… Yup, some people resolve to get MORE physical activity, and I am resolving to do LESS!

    • OMG I should have the SAME resolution too because I work out 370 days a year – LOL – yes, there are 365 days in a year, but this just means I work out TOO MUCH πŸ˜‰ Hmmmmm this is a really really good one!!!!!!! Thanks Megan!!

  4. I don’t have suggestions but keep making videos! They make my mornings a whole lot more fun! Happy New Year GiGi! :)

  5. Yay more videos! I feel behind so I’ll have to catch up on your old ones. Have fun in Wyoming! What are you most looking forward to in the new year? Taking a trip to Iceland in March.
    Do you have any video ideas for me? I’ll think about it.
    Are you dreaming of sucking the bones off a duck or pounding a mound of tofu? Duck.
    Do you set resolutions? I set one of not getting any parking tickets in LA this past year and I did it! Other than that I set goals.
    Balls is a funny word. Period.
    To vlog or not to vlog… That is the question! Vlog!

    • OMG that is the best resolution ever and I couldn’t be more impressed that you DID NOT get a ticket this year!!!!!!!! I got a few FIX IT TICKETS, lol! Not getting a ticket in LA is so hard. Set that resolution again this year! You know what? I will join you in that, I don’t need to spend extra money when it’s truly not necessary!!
      And thank you for all of your support this year, it means the world to me! :)

  6. I love your videos. I have only done like 2 because I’m so awkward in them! lol. :) Maybe in 2014 I’ll get brave to do more.

    • If you look back to my first couple of videos, I am superrrrrr awkward – but I just pretend not to be, lol! It’s all about confidence, so I definitely say, TRY AND TRY again!! :) I am rooting you on and if you ever need advice/help – feel free to email me!! :) Happy New Years EVE!

  7. I certainly loved watching your creative videos during 2013!

    I don’t so resolutions, but I am recommending one this year, resolve to talk to strangers!

    I’m watching the new movie, Las Vegas. I’m sure “ball drop” will be in there before it’s over :-)

    Ex bachelor, Jesse Palmer, just saved a fellow ESPN announcer’s life with the Heimlich maneuver! That’s pretty cool!

    Make a video with a giraffe , :-)

    • Make that “Last Vegas.” :-)

    • Oh I will try and make my way over to Africa, with a video camera so I can make a video about how healthy the giraffe diet is! Oh my, imagine if a Diet Book called The Giraffe Diet was the #1 popular diet in 2014 – LOL! Should I publish this book?

      Oh and I have a story about the bachelor for you… But I am not so sure I should post it in the comments here! πŸ˜‰

  8. I already think your videos are amazing – can’t wait to see what you do with your new video editing system!!!
    I don’t make resolutions – never really worked for me.

    • Thank you Kim, that means the world to me!! I will do my best to make more “amazing” videos for you πŸ˜‰

      And I completely agree with you about the resolutions!

  9. Wow awesome job getting all those videos made! Can’t wait for more in 2014. I don’t have any resolutions currently, do you? I usually don’t make any because I like to make my changes as soon as I stumble upon them. Happy New Year Gigi!

  10. “Summertime Salads” was the best video of he year! Happy New Year my friend! :)

  11. https://awards.wegohealth.com/nominees/gigi-228
    I’m torn between Coolio and Lana, so more must be made. I wish everyone here a happy and safe new year, and please don’t let anyone DRINK & DRIVE life is to fragile.

    • THANK YOU SO MUCH for ENDORSING ME SO MUCH!!!!!!! If you got my e-mail, you know that you are the #1 commenter on my blog and I couldn’t be happier – I should send you something! I really should, because you completely deserve it! :) And I agree, please everyone, be safe tonight!

  12. Oh kale…how I love thee! Thanks for the laughs. I can always count on tons of them with your videos. Happy New Year!

    • Thank you Angela!!! I really appreciate that. Do you like Swiss Chard? Maybe I will have to swing in a hammock made out of Swiss Chard as I talk about its health benefits, lol!

  13. I’m trying to get jiggy with kale but it’s so dang bitter. Yeesh!

    Happy 2014 to you! I doubt I’m awake late enough to see any ball drop. πŸ˜‰

    • Ugh, I hear you about Kale being a bit bitter, however, if you sautee it in olive oil and garlic with a little shallots, you would be pleasantly surprised! :)

  14. I’ll have to check out your videos from earlier in the year (before I found your blog – sob!) when I get home from work. (Not that I’m procrastinating at the office — NEVER!!!) I’m not really “resolving” to do anything new, just trying to keep on mostly being healthy and happy and all that good stuff. I got a new laptop for Christmas, which was super duper awesome since my old one was 7 years old and didn’t work unless it was plugged in. Keep the fun videos coming in 2014!

    • Oh there are lots of and lots of videos in the YouTube world for you to watch, lol – it might take a few hours… But if you’re not doing anything tonight πŸ˜‰ – Just kidding, of course you are!

      And OMG my old lap top is 7 years old too – it still works but I just got a new lap top (with the editing equipment I mentioned)… And I am currently on it right now, what a DREAM :) – What kind did you get?

  15. Hurray! I’m pounding tofu, munching on kale and waiting impatiently for your new videos. I <3 them.

  16. THANK YOU X 100000 for doing this roundup…I’m still so ashamed to have NOT known you had a blog until recently…just some strange blonde chick who had a twitter lol!

    So when we hang out, I reckon we need to film our seafood consumption date. It will set records.

    Also, definitely hump like a bunny…can you imagine the burn rate? That would be like HIIT. MY kind of HIIT. Truth- I had a pound of tofu baked the other night. Well if 400 grams = a pound.

    Have a great New Year buddy! (Currently hungover and going to mindlessly watch your videos)

    • I am rather ashamed with you as well and it might take me until the new year to GET OVER IT! So… for me… Wait a few hours – but for you, yep, I am already OVER IT!! You can MAKE IT UP TO ME in 2014 and beyond!!!! (Buying my seafood scarf fest perhaps? lol).

      Oh and heck yes, humping like a bunny = more exercise than marathon running for sure πŸ˜‰

      Hope my videos cured your hang over… And didn’t make you more nauseous! LMFAO !! Happy New YEAR!! I will be watching YOUR COUNTRY’S FIRE WORKS PRETTY SOON!

  17. MMmmm, kale. I love kale. And I am actually making meatloaf tonight!! The Coolio video was my favourite. You’re kind of a dork…that makes me happy :)

    I will continue to watch your videos because the only one that I made was uber-awkward.

    • OOOO what’s in your meatloaf missy!!!!! I want to know because I am on a total meatloaf kicker-oo!!

      The Coolio vid is DEF in the top three for me!! I just love the man, he is a GENIUS – minus him promoting tilapia! πŸ˜‰

      And hey now, you can make videos too! We can even make one together πŸ˜‰ Trust me, it can be done – you will know what I am talking about after I post next weeks video!

      • Well, I’m sad to say that the meatloaf did not happen. My friend had invited me to one of those ‘make a meal’ places…long story, the meat juices leaked in the bag. But we ended up having a delicious dinner with some chicken, green beans, salad (with kale), cranberries and brussel sprouts πŸ˜›

        I’m so intrigued about the video…

        • Well, you will just have to make the meatloaf in 2014… You could make it TODAY and throw in some black-eyed peas for good luck πŸ˜‰

  18. You totally crack me up! Congrats on some cool presents! I would love to make videos as awesome as yours but sadly my camera phone just doesn’t do the trick. I dream…one day.

    I don’t drink so….

    • Oh you can make anything work – seriously! I make a majority of my videos on my web cam!!! Just have to use your imagination :)

      And I don’t drink either πŸ˜‰

  19. What are the black things you love?

  20. HAPPY NEW YEAR GiGi!!!!!! I am looking forward to every one of your videos. Also looking forward to meeting you!

    No resolutions for this old lady – too many when I was younger & they were not good for me.. :)

    What I hope for 2014 besides world peace & equality for all.. :) I just want it to be a better & happier & easier year for this house – selfish, I know but that is the honest truth! :)

    • Oh yes yes yes 2014 is the year that you and I will MEET! :) I am so excited.

      And you know what Jody? You are 1000% allow to be selfish, because you deserve happiness and to have an easier year than 2013! :) I see amazing things for 2014, that’s for sure – plus it’s an EVEN number – so at least we have that to look forward to, lol!

  21. Happy New Year to you Miss Gigi….I am all set for my short term goals…I do them this way, so I am able to reach them and get excited. Video blogging? Heck yeah!! I have to get back on track with mine and WE need to connect for one {or maybe more} I have a funny feeling we would be pretty good together LOL
    I am looking forward to being a better blogger this year :)

    • No doubt in my mind do I NOT see us working together in some capacity and I know when we do (one, two, three times +) it will be phenomenally hysterical! ha ha! We need to start brainstorming ASAP :)

      Happy New Year! Do you plan on going to any blogging conferences this year or anything?

  22. Haha your video about drumsticks is so true!! And for the new year I want to start working out more!! Haha and enjoy some more healthy treats!

  23. You are the cutest~ I love your videos. Looking forward to getting some great recipes from you for my new regime of cooking at home.

    • Thank you Mindy!!! :) I’ve got a deliciously yummy one coming for the Super Bowl! But I am sure I will have plenty more before then too! Happy New Year!

  24. Ummmm. Juan Pablo!!! That is all.

  25. I am looking forward to more CRAZY action on your site next year – maybe even an appearance from the GOSLINGER himself!

  26. oh i love them all. Although the kale one is pretty epic! MoRE MORE MORE

  27. Oh my gosh, your faces are amazing! I’m finally subscribing to your channel by the way – sorry I hadn’t! When are you going to do Improv?

    • Bah ha ha ah!! Hey, new year, new AWESOME SUBSCRIBER!!! Thank you for your support! :) Every day of my life is improv, LOL πŸ˜‰ And uh…. Hold the phone, read your bio – you’re in Southern Cali?!?! Where?

  28. lol you know my mind is always in the gutter but I never took a second thought at the “ball drop” statement – Haha, thanks for putting that to light for me. I don’t make resolutions – However, I’d like to be in an ideal weight by summer (that’s not too bad right? I have time!!!!) I’m going to see a naturopathic physician in January so hopefully, she’ll provide nutritionary insights – if she says no cheese I. Will. Cry. Stop responding to comments and enjoy Wyoming! Have fun and hope you had a great New Years! -Iva

    • Hmmm I have a feeling she might say a few things you might not like :( Womp Womp. But if you’re serious then you might consider doing a few of them πŸ˜‰

      I cannot wait until I get out of WY – I have been eating FARRRRR too much! LOL! And trust me, I have been enjoying WY enough – I have been here for 2 weeks so far. I am done – AH HA HA!

  29. Keep up with the videos and your posts.
    And, for my New Year Resolution, I hope to expand my new blog. =)

  30. Your so funny!

    The first time I watched one of your videos I was hooked haha.

    Keep it going.

  31. Happy new year! I’ll look forward to those next 40 from you:)
    As for my year I’m looking forward to even more comedic acting exploits. Hmm, maybe we should make a video together!

  32. LOVE you. LOVE your vids. Please make more! You are oh.so.naturelle in front of the camera! :) p.s. I love the kale vid most..I LOVE kale! X

    • Aw thank you Maria! I will keep on making them for sure :) Unfortunately – me being in Wyoming is definitely cramping my video style and I don’t leave until next Wednesday!!!! Gahh! LOL! — I did love the Kale video too, however, it didn’t exactly motivate me to add more kale into my diet, LMFAO!

  33. I was looking at “best songs” of 2013 lists and when I saw Summertime Sadness, you know I could only think of your sad, sad, salad song!

    • Bah ha ha! Not going to lie, when I hear the song, I sing along but with the words from the Summertime Salad πŸ˜‰

  34. I’m not setting resolutions…I’m setting intentions :)

    Happy New Year my Salmon eating friend!

    • I love it!!!!! Intentions :) I set GOALS not resolutions!!

      Hope you’ve already eaten lots of salmon this 2014!! I have yet to but going to sushi tonight and will dedicate some to you xoxo!

  35. Happy New Year crazy girl!! I love your fun videos and can’t wait to see what you have in-store for us in 2014. :)

  36. You know which video is MY favorite :) Looking forward to making many more funny videos with you this year!

    Happy 2014!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xoxoxox

    Come home now!

    • I am so excited to make more videos with you too! And did I mention that I got a new lap top, a new phone and a whole need editing system (with photo shop and illustrator, etc) – We are HOOKED UP for this year!!!! :)

      Coming Home in T-6 days!!! It’s time to RUMBLE!

  37. Happy New Year, Gigi! Thanks so much for continuing to make us all smile every Tuesday :).

  38. Keep vlogging! I personally want to try and incorporate some of that into 2014 too!

  39. I love, love, love me some GiGi videos! I think you should shoot for at least 45 videos this year…I mean, come on!! Summertime Salads is my all-time fav so far!!!

  40. I was sick with a stomach bug for four days, so I couldn’t even THINK about food blogs. Glad that I made it back in time to see your video round-up! YES I am obsessed with The Bachelor (no, I can’t spell “obsessed” correctly the first time. Ever). I didn’t watch the last season, but I will definitely be glued to the TV Jan 5th.

  41. I never even though of the “ball drop” as dirty until you mentioned it. Now that’s ruined… Way to go, Gigi! LOL Anyway I love your videos, you crack me up so whatever you’re doing – just keep doing that πŸ˜‰

    • Bah ha ha aha ha ha! πŸ˜‰ Next New Years Eve you will think of me – LOL – my plan worked!!

      And thank you Kammie – about to work on another video that will HOPEFULLY be up on Tuesday! Wahoo!

  42. Hilarious… you’re hilarious! And know your food facts! Loved the ice cream one. Thanks for stopping by my blog and linking up too. I appreciate the support!

  43. Omg you are too hilarious! I love it! the Kale video was my FAVE! :)

  44. I love the Summertime Salads video! :)

    Wishing you a happy & healthy 2014, Gigi!

    • Whitney and I will certainly be doing another SPOOF music video down the road, FOR SURE :)

      Thank You Andrea! Happy New Year – It’s going to be the best year yet, I just know it!

  45. I just hopped on the train so I’m looking forward to lots of videos!

    • Yay! I am so appreciative that you’ve hopped on the train – I promise it will be an interesting ride πŸ˜‰

  46. Gigi, you are a bachelor fangirl?!?!..

    Sweet.. I am as well.. Wait, I’m a dude.
    But I still love the bachelor.

    Sadly. it’s the only show that I really watch right now.
    But I can’t wait until this Sunday.
    And I don’t care who knows it :)

    • Bah ha ha aha ha ha aha ha ha aha ha ah! This is by far one of my most favorite comments ever. I love you. I love that you don’t CARE WHO KNOWS YOUR BACHELOR adoration πŸ˜‰ PS….. I have a little story about this season of the bachelor – if you’re curious – email me (gigieatscelebrities at gmail dot com)

  47. You are so outgoing! Definitely more videos and I’m looking forward to working hard and playing harder with my little family. πŸ˜‰

  48. I loved your kale and summertime salads videos. Your videos always make me laugh. No real resolutions for me except that I promising myself to get more sleep!

  49. I still think of you everytime I hear that Summertime song. Also, I made kale salad and thought of you. This is getting creepy… πŸ˜‰

    • CREEPY in the most awesome way POSSIBLE!!!!! ha ha aha ha! πŸ˜‰ One day we will toss a kale salad together, LMFAO – was that a bit of a creepy comment ?!?!

  50. Loving the vids! I don’t have many resolutions this year, apart from trying to eat cleaner and to pass my driving test (hurry up already!!) haha

    • OMG dude! I failed my driving test 3 times!!!!!! HA HA AH! I was so annoyed and kept thinking: HOW DO ALL THESE TERRIBLE DRIVERS PASS THEIR TESTS YET I CANNOT!!!! BAHHHHH!!! Alas, I passed πŸ˜‰

  51. Can’t wait to see more hilarious videos in 2014! Oh and please go to a hoedown in Wyoming. And make a video. I’m sure everyone wants to see that! πŸ˜‰

    • HA HA! Sadly all the hoedowns happen in the summer, so there are none at the moment, otherwise, you better believe I would film that epic experience, LOL!

  52. You are the video master! I love them all, but kale probably is my fave. Bring on more in 2014!

  53. Thanks so much for making me laugh today!

  54. I just love your videos so am happy to hear that more are coming. The coolest fitness gadget that I received for Christmas was a Jawbone Up. It has been quite interesting to start tracking my sleep. Happy New Year!

    • I have totally heard of the JAWBONE – doesn’t it count your calories and steps and such? I love those things!!!

  55. The world wouldn’t be the same without your videos! Thanks Danielle!! Since you did such an amazing turkey impression for your Thanksgiving video, I’m putting in a request for a leprechaun and cherub impression in the next couple months. Hope you don’t mind being naked and drunk. Typical Saturday night, right?

    Happy New year πŸ˜‰

    • My sister does rock :)

      AND YOU BEST BELIEVE a Cherub and a Leprechaun will be making appearances this year… LMFAO – might offend some people? And my “naked” video might get suspended from YouTube – but it’s worth the risk for some entertainment, LOL!

  56. Happy New Year! Definitely more videos! I love them. This year I wasn’t planning on any resolutions but my boyfriend proposed on NYE and so Operation Buff Bride will be underway soon.

  57. Giiiirl, you’re adorable. That’s all. No, wait, you’re also really hilarious and I’m pretty sure there have never been funnier videos to promote healthy eating. Honestly, you should get a marketing deal with the national Kale Board [there has to be such a council, right?]! Unless they want to pay you in kale only – because that would be too much kale to eat even for a fan. And 2013 was the year I became one, too.
    Happy New Year!

    • OMG thank you so much for this comment, I am so happy I can make you laugh! This is what I live for πŸ˜€ MY MOM WOULD DIE IF THE NATIONAL KALE BOARD sponsored me, as she is a KALE FREAK – LMFAO – MORE SO than I am! πŸ˜‰

      Kale = Greens & Greens = Money?? LMFAO!

      XOXO – Happy New Year!

  58. Your videos are amazing and I’m happy that you got a some new video editing software. So fun! I especially love your Summertime Salad video….classic!

    • THANK YOU Melanie!!!!!! πŸ˜€ Working on something with a fellow blogger right now! Hopefully you like it! Happy New Year!

  59. The comments say it all! You’re one of a kind in such amazing ways.

    Happy New Year Gigi!

  60. Oh my goodness, I saw you in the SITS FB group then noticed you commented on my latest yoga pose and I AM SO GLAD YOU DID! May have a huge blog crush on you now (aka followed you well, everywhere!) Can’t wait to see what’s coming up for this year!

    xx Kait

    • BAH HA HA HA AH AHA HA AHA HA HA HA HA AH!! Well my blog is super flattered – if my blog were a dude, he would have a huge…. well, you know… LMFAO! πŸ˜‰

  61. Your kale video rocked it! I like kale. And it’s the one thing my 16 year old son will cook for us. I know, bizarre.
    Any video tips for me on getting started? To make it as easy as possible. It’s one of my goals this year. I have never ever made a video, other than a photo collage one. And I don’t think that counts.

    • Okay now THAT is weird – your son only cooks KALE? I remember my brother and I would only eat spaghetti and butter, LOL!

      In terms of video tips, email me (gigieatscelebrities at gmail dot com) – tell me what your goals are, what equipment you currently have, etc – I would love to give you some pointers :) And it doesn’t have to be difficult at all!

  62. Hahaha omg I love your kale video! It was cracking me up! If I wasn’t already a kale lover, you better believe I would be one now πŸ˜‰ Now maybe if I showed the video to my brother he wouldn’t turn his nose up at kale… well, he probably still would – he won’t touch anything green! Seriously how I am related to that kid? πŸ˜‰

    • If you can believe it, I never ever ever ever ever touched ANYTHING green until I was about 14 years old, so give your brother some time, he very well may come around πŸ˜‰ lol! And if not… Well, you can always sneak veggies and healthy foods into the “junk” somehow right? lol

  63. Oooh! Have fun with your new video editing software!

  64. So love your videos GiGi – they ALWAYS make me chuckle!
    I am hoping you make 40+1 more this year!
    Happy New Year!!!!

  65. What’s this E News business ???? when are you going to be on TV ???

  66. kale is so yum!! i esp love baking them with some sea salt and olive oil

  67. Omigosh! You are hilarious!!! How have I not followed your blog/youtube before! Well, you gotta new fan. And, enjoy Wyoming! I’m a little further east in Omaha, Nebraska. :)

    • WAHOO! Well you found me now! :) new posts every Tuesday! I am going to go follow your blog now… if I don’t already! I know I have been before!

  68. i love watching the bachelor too! guilty as chargeeed.

    ps: juan pablo is prob the hottest bachelor to date.

  69. I love your videos! That is all! LOL
