Celebrity Doppelganger

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Rise and shine! :mrgreen:

I have a full day ahead, which includes Body Pump, lots of errands around town, and packing. Lots and lots of packing. We’re moving 2 weeks from tomorrow! 😯 I cannot believe we’re moving again, but, at least this time, I know we’ll be staying for awhile.


This morning’s breakfast was inspired by another one of Mama Pea’s pumpkin creations. The other day, she whipped a delicious-looking Pumpkin Pie Shake, so I attempted my own version with ingredients in my refrigerator this morning.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie


  • 2/3 cup frozen canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla)
  • 1.25 cups soy milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg



I also threw in a packet of chocolate-flavored Amazing Grass. My cold is just about gone, so I want to nip in the bud. I have no idea if this stuff really works, but I figured it couldn’t hurt.


Ok, now for some fun! :mrgreen:

Who is your celebrity doppelganger?

Does the word ‘doppelganger’ remind anyone else of How I Met Your Mother? I had never even heard the word until I watched the show and now I use it all of the time! 😀


So, I was catching up my celebrity gossip in US Weekly the other day and stumbled upon a very familiar looking pug.


Brad and Angelina’s “Furry Sidekick” looks a lot like Murphy.

You might think that all pugs look alike, but they do not. Pugs come in all shapes and sizes. Some are cute and some are really ugly. Murphy is “unique” because he has really long, flying nun-like ears. (Most pugs don’t have such long ears.) Brad and Angelina’s pug has those same long ears and a very expressive Murphy-like face.


Do you see the pug dog resemblance? I think they were separated at birth, just like Mal and Kirk! 😉

Over the years, people have told me that I have a few celebrity doppelgangers, including Kate Beckinsale, Neve Campbell, and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Sometimes, I see the Kate Beckinsale resemblance, but not the other two. Actually, I don’t see it at all!

Doggy 5K

For the locals…

BostonDOG and the MSPCA-Angell have teamed up with RACE – Run Against Cancer Events to host the Doggy 5K, Boston’s first ever road race for humans and dogs! All event proceeds benefit the Angell Animal Medical Center’s Oncology service and BostonDOG’s Boston Common Dog Park Proposal.


The Doggy 5k is at 10am on Saturday, November 13th at South Boston’s Castle Island. The race is open to humans running with or without dogs.

Question of the Day

Who is your celebrity doppelganger?

P.S. I’m hosting a Nutella and Teddie Peanut Butter giveaway over on Trading Up Downtown this morning! I know you want to enter! 😉



  1. I love Pumpkin Pie Smoothies as well. I have also used Almond Milk both regular and vanilla flavored in my Pumpkin Smoothie.
    I will also throw in some spinach. Although it takes away the beautiful orange color it is still oh so yummy…. I still had some Pumpkin left in the fridge this morning and added right into my regular fruit smoothie along with some cinnamon, berries, spinach and cucumber. Still was yummy! Not to mention oh so good for us. One staple I always add chia seeds and ground flax seed to the mix.

    Love the stainless steel straw idea! 🙂

  2. Who knew there was another pug as cute as Murphy!

    The one I get the most is Liv Tyler.

    The funny part is I met Steven Tyler awhile back…. he wasn’t one of the people that noted the resemblance. 😉

  3. I loved that HIMYM episode! Stripper Lily was the best…

    I got a few more when I still had very blonde hair. People said I looked like Uma Thurman. That was about the time when Kill Bill was huge- so I was flattered that I looked that kick ass… 🙂

  4. I think you look just like Kate Beckinsale! That’s uncanny. I first heard of doppelgangers on a different Alyson Hannigan show; Buffy The Vampire Slayer (loved that show). I was doppelganger Willow for Halloween once. I can’t really think of a celebrity whom I look like. I hope you’re feeling better 🙂 This warm weather is fantastic!

  5. Doggy 5K! That sounds fun! I love Castle Island too…I discovered it when I ran the Harpoon 5 miler a few years ago…I wish that my pup was in better shape…and not as easily distracted…it’s not easy to run with a 90lb dog that stops every 5 seconds to sniff constantly pulling my arm out of its socket…

    I sometimes get Angelina Jolie…or Natalie Portman…but I’m not sure I really look like either!

  6. I’ve been told that I look like Natascha McElhone a lot – she’s the “other woman” in The Truman Show.

    Murphy does have a REALLY expressive face – I’ve never seen a pug with so much personality.

  7. aww murphy DOES look like brangelina’s pup. so cute. and holy moly i can definitely see the kate beckinsale resemblance. so pretty! i get told i look like amanda seyfried (mean girls, dear john) like several times a week. it’s funny!

  8. ha love this! I never knew you thought Mal looked like Kirk! He lives in my building and we have become good friends! I guess I could see the similarities there. Wanna know a secret (or dear god Im gonna get in trouble for this) but Kirk has a new girl…her doppelganger may or may not be Ali from the Bachelorette. They are twins. (and no worries, I have told him this. He laughed and then got nervous and thought it was true). haha

    Happy Wednesday!

  9. Oh my goodness, that really does look like Murphy!

    I can see the resemblance to Kate Beckinsale a bit, too!

    I often get that I’m a mix of Blake Lively, Taylor Swift and Kate Hudson. I’ll take it!

  10. People have always said I look like Fiona Apple and Angelina Jolie (I think it’s the puffy lips). I’ve also gotten Liv Tyler and Mandy Moore. And once, oddly enough, Naomi Campbell. That was a bit weird ; )

  11. Well, I have been told I look like a few people. When I had long hair people said I look like the “Funny Girl” era Barbara Streisand. I have that wonderful jewish nose.. haha.

    I can totally see the Kate Beckinsale… but not really the others.

  12. Ha! I didn’t even know that Brangelina had a pug! That makes me happy… I totally think that each pug has their own funny facial expression and Murphy and their dog Jack TOTALLY look separated at birth! Maybe you should look into that… family reunion! 🙂

    I’ve been told most often that I resemble Rachel McAdams… mainly in her Wedding Crashers role.

    I’m about to go enter your giveaway! Funnily enough… I’m hosting a similar giveaway on MY blog for Better’n Peanut Butter, 1 jar of Creamy Original and 1 jar of Chocolate PB !!! 🙂 Feel free to enter…


  13. I can definitely see Neve Campbell for you!

    I’ve been getting Anne Hathaway for years now! Even from strangers 🙂
    Just recently I saw a movie with my dad and there was a preview for the movie she’s in with Jake Gyllenhaal and my dad (who didn’t know who she was) looked a the screen then looked at me then looked back at the screen then back at me and was like “You…her…you….She looks just like you!”

  14. I used to have a gap in my two front teeth and I had been told that I looked like the girl who played Kit Deluca in Pretty Woman (minus the leopard miniskirt) but since my gap has closed, I’ve been told I look like Leah Remini, which I can see a little bit.

  15. I’ve been meaning to make a pumpkin pie smoothie, and you’ve just reminded me. I must remember this for the weekend.

    I’ve never been told I look like a celebrity. I guess I just don’t have that famour face. 🙂

  16. I actually think you look more like Miss Campbell. 🙂

    And Murphy has a taller face, I think that’s what I find cuter about him than most pugs.

  17. I get told often (like, once a week, seriously) that I look like Kiera Knightly. I know that it’s supposed to be a compliment, and that I should be flattered, really I do. However, I think she’s awful…and not that attractive, really. But a compliment’s a compliment right? 🙂

  18. Murphy is cuter! I’ve been told I look like Jill (can’t think of her real name, Patrica something??) from that old show Home Improvement with Tim Allen in it. I don’t see it really unless I look like her with blond hair.

  19. Yay for the doggie 5k!! We won’t have moved out to Boston in time, but it’s great hearing that these events exist. I have a feeling our two girls are going to love it out there. 🙂

  20. Apparently, I look a lot like Salma Hayek. I get that all the time. People stop me randomly — people I know and people I don’t know — to tell me I look like her. I can sort of see it, but she is waayyyyyy more put together.

  21. I can’t remember a time I didn’t know the term “doppleganger” how funny! I didn’t realize it wasn’t a common term!

    I have never been told that I look like any celebrity. I don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing!

  22. you DO look like beckinsale!

    i have been told really weird celebs – katie holmes and catherine zeta jones (weird b/c i’m asian) but i am constantly being confused for another actress, karin anna cheung. it worked out for me, though, b/c we played sisters in a movie, “the people i’ve slept with.” it’s actually playing in boston on nov. 13th at harvard!
