As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Makeover Day... Thursday, April 4

I know, I know. I need to look more "professional" being that I am a small business owner.  But I'm also an athlete so while I can easily get away with wearing training wear 24/7, I still have to look presentable.  

Hello new hair.

Day 1 of my makeover.

Last week I bought some new fitness clothes, today I got my hair done.

Despite me having hair that's no longer than 2" in length, it still takes a hell of a time to get my hair done at the salon and I just never have a spare chunk of time like that... until I did!!!  Two of my fighters cancelled training last minute so voila, after my morning coaching, I instantly had the whole afternoon off.  Booked an appointment and then I went in for it. 

I won't admit to just how long it took to do my hair but will admit it was a nice break.

I was forced to just sit there, chit chat with the stylist team, and was limited to whatever business I could do via my phone.  

Now I'm back to that "white fox" look -- Storm from X-Men. 

Honestly, I am always super shy when I first get my hair done.  It's always so super fresh but always so drastically different and I don't do well with all the added attention it gets me.  It'll take a few days to get used to this but I do like it.  

Tomorrow is Day 2 -- lashes.
