***DISCLAIMER: This blog is personal, subjective and opinionated…and I have a very dirty mouth. Love it…or get the fuck out.
You wish it had to do with me tokin’ up the ganj, but alas, it’s just a nickname.
My full, fancy name is Laura Dubrish Constantiner, but on the streets I AM DUBIE (DOOB-ie), thanks to my marijuana-laced maiden name.
I started this blog in July 2009 while vacationing in France with my then-boyfriend-now-husband, aka: “HB” (Honey Buns). The first day of what was supposed to be a two week trip through Europe, HB came down with appendicitis. Suffice to say, I spent my days at his hospital bedside in Gasson, instead of topless by the pool at Le Byblos. This made for exceptional blog material. In short, people wanted more, so I gave them more…and aren’t you lucky, I haven’t stopped since.
WHAT I DO
I teach Classical Pilates at Core Pilates NYC, and privately at my home studio. It’s the most fabulous thing on earth. I love every waking moment. For more on my career, check out my sick Pilates website I Sweat Hard For Pilates.
WHAT I’M ABOUT
Prioritizing health. Pushing boundaries. Taking responsibility in all that I do. Always learning. Committing to be better. Walking my talk. Being transparent. Empowering other people. Imparting self-awareness.
Bunnies, gangster rap music – the more explicit, the better, sweating my balls off, shit talking, taking selfies with my mouth open, online shopping, cooking, baking, EATING (for real), learning, LOVING on my Honey Buns, fam and special friends, speaking fluent Spanish, squatting, showing off my mad Pilates and Crossfit skills via INSTA, getting loose on baller bottles of wine and tequila, traveling, and occasionally stalking people on Facebook, including myself.

I have two.
1). DON’T BE A PUSSY
2). GO HARD IN THE MOTHER FUCKIN’ PAINT!
If you’re not hip like me, this means “to approach a problem, obstacle, or challenge with supreme confidence of success through a commitment to use all facilities available to one’s self to achieve a goal,” as per the distinguished Urban Dictionary. Boom.
