Fellow females, do your homework–no need to make the same mistake I’ve made all too many times, and find yourself waking up next to not the person you thought/hoped/expected you’d see upon opening your hungover eyes. I’ve made it easier for you by drawing up the below handy checklist of questions you can/absolutely should ask any man before bestowing upon him the honor of becoming your bedfellow, whether for one night or a couple more than that. http://cdn.meme.am/instances/500x/54766753.jpgWhat is your favorite Girl Scout cookie?

What are your thoughts on oral sex (giving–we clearly know what they are on receiving)?

How many nights out of the week do you cry yourself to sleep?

If this turns into an overnight commitment, do you expect to be cooked eggs in the morning? Dogs or cats?

What’s your number (of sexual partners to date, not phone)?

Have you seen and do you appreciate Fried…

The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

sisterhoodThe idea behind the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award is to recognize the unique voices of women bloggers around the world. How cool is that? Women coming together to make the world a better place is so important to me. We are all stronger together. I am so honored to be nominated for an award that is grounded in girl power! I was nominated by Maitreyi at glamorpolish. She writes a fun beauty blog, with her personality shining through. I like her honesty and the way she writes. I don’t follow a ton of beauty blogs, so hers is special 🙂 However, I am now starting to think I need to follow more. I will start with the blogs in her post!

Here are the rules of the award, should any of my nominees choose to accept!

Thank the blogger who nominated you & link back to their site.
Answer the ten questions sent to you.
Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
Nominate seven bloggers who you feel deserve the award.

My answers to Maitreyi’s questions:

  • What are your favourite hobbies?
    blogging, playing with my dogs, reading, making new drink recipes
  • How do you make yourself motivated when you are feeling low?
    I just force myself to do something. Once I start, I tend to get wrapped up in it and it’s easier to move on. My go to is minimalizing- going through an area of my house that could be cleaned out. I know that’s nuts, but it works for me.
  • What is your favourite dish?
    Anything Indian or Ethiopian!
  • Jeans or skirts?
    Skirts. I think dresses are more comfortable and more forgiving of figure flaws (real or perceived…)
  • Blush or bronzer?
    Bronzer, for sure. I am very pale, but also have red cheeks. I am mostly German with some Irish, but I look more Irish than anything else.
  • The singer whom you just love to listen all the time?
    Taylor Swift! I know the haters are gonna hate, but I love her anyway. She never fails to cheer me up.
  • Sunrise or sunset?
    Sunset. I love to see both, but if I’m up early enough to see the sunrise, I’m probably grumpy about it.
  • Who is your favourite superhero?
    My friend, K. She accomplishes more than anyone I’ve ever met, and does it with a great attitude. I do realize this probably isn’t what you meant, but she’s still my favorite superhero 🙂
  • What is your nickname?
    Jillian (Jill is my “real” name), Jilliey, Jillybear
  • What is your favourite genre in movies?
    suspense- I love Hitchcock, as well as modern suspense

The winners, that I think are just fabulous. Go check them out and bask in their awesomeness!

Y’all, here are your questions:

  1. What’s the funniest thing that has happened to you lately?
  2. Is there something you’re putting off doing that you could start today?
  3. If the average human life span was 50 years, how would you live your life differently? OR If you had five more years to live, how would you live your life differently?
