I’m Jayme, I’m the mind behind Bake, Eat and Grow!
I’m 20 years old, and I live in Winnipeg with my amazing boyfriend Jordan. He’s awesome!
I love baking, I love eating, I love trying new things. I will be going to Red River College starting September 2012 for Professional Baking, because I want to open my own bakery in about 10 years!
I started the blog because I used to suffer constantly from godawful depression. I was never suicidal or anything, but I drifted through life, never left the apartment or saw my friends, I never really felt happy or even content.
I have since changed my ways, and keep my depression at bay (for the most part, there are still times when I really struggle) with a positive attitude, more confidence, a social life and lots of physical activity.
My favourite hobby is aerial dance, which I do twice a week. (fabrics and hoop & trapeze.)
I love exercise!
My workouts vary between running, resistance training, yoga, Pilates, gymnastics, dance, or just dancing around at home with some push-ups thrown in. I believe the key to consistent exercise is doing what you think is fun and satisfying, not worrying about burning the most calories.
Here’s some more things that I think are awesome!
. my family.
. fast, expensive cars (saleen s7 is my favourite).
. photography. mostly food photography.
. planning. I’m super duper organized and would probably die if I didn’t have a plan for everything.
. music! (system of a down, the misfits, children of bodom, and rise against are my favorite bands.)
. fashion & style!
. hair and make up.
. Spongebob Squarepants, Dexter, and Harry Potter.
Here’s some fun pictures of me!
Jordles and I all bundled up. I like how you can’t even see his face..
Me all wrapped up in the fabric.
My dance group! I’m the booty-poppin’ pirate on the left.
My splits! (I have been both blond and brunette. Yes, those are all actually me.)
Here’s a video of my front hip circle on the trapeze. I think it’s funny because my look of intense concentration.
With Jordan’s family in Mexico. It was such an awesome vacation. (I’m the one that’s a full head shorter than everyone else.)
