All for Nike.

i really love reading jen's blog more and more each day. it gives me ideas to blog about things that i never really would have thought about blogging. : ) thanks again jen!

now let's cut to the chase, shall we?


it's official: michellious loves nike.

first, a disclamer. it's not because jen mentioned that she likes nike that made me choose to like it too. all of the branded shoes i have are nike (not that i have many hehe) and i strongly agree that nike always comes up with better designs than any other brands i know of.

nike started out as one of the most well-known and better-priced sports brand that found its way onto the shelves in stores. although adidas, fila, puma and other sports brands have received their share of a good reputation, nike is still, nevertheless, my favourite.

and ever since the nike women ads started coming out i was enthralled.

it's not that other sports brands aren't good but in my opinion (and jen's), nike does it best. everytime i walk past the nike stores around town and see those blown-up posters of the nike women doing their thang i always stop dead in my tracks, mesmerized by the overwhelming impression that they give me.

so strong. so independant. so powerful.

and so so SO feminine. me LOVE.

"my butt is big
and round like the letter C
and ten thousand lunges
have made it rounder
but not smaller
and that's just fine.

it's a space heater
for the side of the bed
it's my ambassador
for those who walk behind me
it's a border collie
that herds skinny women
away from the best deals
at clothing sales.

my butt is big
and that's just fine
and those who might scorn it
are invited to kiss it."


and they come up with just about the wittiest phrases too. ; D

as a feminist, i must say that nike has done an excellent job on the nike women ads.

thanks to jen (again), i came to know of this wonderful woman named Sofia Boutella.

boutella is best known for her street dancing and she has toured with Madonna as part of her dance team.

how can you not be mesmerized by a woman THAT good? you say, HOW?!

this woman deserves a solid, straight up. *holds up fist*

plus, the nike european women's team is tha bomb!

but my overall favourite has GOT to be this one:

if we were to do THAT at a plastic surgery hospital then we can definitely change the world. : )

p/s latina women are not human they're GODESSES. 8 ) yum.

if you haven't seen the short video clips of the women ads already, then go back and watch it again. i assure you, they are worth your every second.

i am feeling so friggin inspired by the ads, you wouldn't believe me if i told you.
