10 Random Facts & A Blog Award

A few days ago I popped online and got a surprise. Fellow Antiguan blogger, the awesome Nekisha aka Black Zulu  has nominated Deep Fried Stilettos for both the Sunshine Award and the Shine On  Award. Big Thanks Nekisha for putting a huge grin on my face. Go on over and check out her blog for great beauty and natural hair tips! I especially love the fact that her blog is stuffed full of simple, easy DIYs!! 

Following in Nekisha's footsteps I'll merge the two awards since they're so similar. 

The rules to the Sunshine Award:

  • Use the logo below in the post.
  • Link to whoever nominated you.
  • Write ten pieces of information about yourself.
  • Nominate ten fellow bloggers “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere.”
The rules for the Shine On Award:

  • Display the award logo on your blog
  • Show appreciation by acknowledging the blogger who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
  • Share 7 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 bloggers you admire and happily pass on this award, making sure to link their blog into your post.
  • Contact your chosen bloggers and let them know. 

Here we go, ten bits of information/random facts about me! Eh em...

  1. I like movies, horrors, with lots of suspense, blood and gore, unfortunately I'm a total wimp, all that suspense, blood and gore makes me queasy. So I watch those scenes through my t-shirt or whatever piece fabric is close by. It's a decent compromise.  
  2. I woke up one day and wanted to be a mortician. That phase didn't last very long.
  3. Fries are the best thing that ever happened to potatoes. I believe that they are best served with lots ketchup, a splash of vinegar and a dash of hot sauce. Ugh! My mouth's watering!
  4. Food and I have a love-hate relationship. I love tasting food but hate having a full tummy.
  5.  I sweat. Alot. More than most persons. When I was younger this used to embarrass me. As I got older I realized that it was nothing to be ashamed of . It's just sweat! Tears from your armpits. Along the way I've learnt a few tricks that make living with this genetic quirk easier.
  6. Red meat makes me happy. Beef, lamb, deer, goat, yum!
  7. True crime shows are my guilty pleasure. If I'm watching t.v it's probably stuck on Investigation Discovery. Deadly Women, The FBI Files,Unusual Suspects, Nightmare Next Door, I watch em all! The Investigation Discovery website is pretty cool if you're into that stuff!
  8.  I despise the taste of plain mayonnaise.
  9. It's really hard for me to stay up all night long. I could be working on a paper, cramming for finals or watching a movie marathon but once sleep comes knocking I have to eventually answer the door.
  10.  The photos in this post make me want to rip these yarn locs out. OK I'm exaggerating but I do miss those coils!
 I'm nominating the following bloggers  for both of these awards, It's a bit much but hopefully you'll give it a go! Honestly I;m just excited about reading your 7 or 10 random facts. Let me know if you've accepted and given it a try, so I can do some snooping!
