The Best Asks, Ever! 

Hi Divas!
I thought I would do a fun post this week. As you know I love to have fun on my blog and not take myself seriously. Hope you enjoy reading random things about me. There are 50 questions so I will give you a standing ovation if you stick around to the end as this post is very long. So here it goes....

1: What eye color do you find sexiest? 
 I think blue eyes with dark hair are very sexy. Like Ian Somerhalder. Mmmm :-)

2: White, milk, or dark chocolate mocha?
  All chocolate. I don't discriminate! 

3: If you could get a Sharpie tattoo on your back, what would it be?
It would be butterflies. I really love butterflies and I think it would look really pretty as a tattoo.

4: Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
I grew up in Cape Town, which is very cosmopolitan. I do love big towns.

5: Your favorite adult as a child? (and not your parents, if they were your favorite)
What a hard question to answer! Can I say my grandfather? He was awesome and really spoiled us.

6: What kind of smoothie sounds really good right now?
A Berry Dairy smoothie from Kauai. I freaking love that smoothie.

 I don't have one.

9: Most embarrassing moment from your high school years?
I got scolded by an English teacher in front of the whole class. That was pretty embarrassing.

Lol, I would have to say Pirates. They look like they have more fun! :-)

11: Have you ever climbed a tree more than twenty feet off the ground?
Maybe. I can't remember. I was a bit of a tomboy as a child so I was always climbing trees;-)

12: Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing set?
I absolutely LOVE swings. Even today when I see a swing I will run to it and climb right on. It makes me feel so carefree. I actually was on a swing a few months ago when I was travelling with my work.
