Girly Fun: Google Searching “(year) girl”

by T

From time to time I look to google image search to spice up my posts. I heard somewhere that people prefer pictures to words or something.

 If you remember my recent “My NYE Resolution WAS to…” posts you can see the 2012 image I included in the post. My original plan was to show a girl holding or somehow included with the image of 2012 included. So I searched “2012 girl” and I got something like this…

The 2012 girl struts around in her underwear!

 
My curiousity got the best of me. I wonder what the “2011 girl” looks like?

She lives in a wheat field!

 Ok, how about the year I graduated from high school? “2007 Girl” please.

The "2007 Girl" is a prolific runner!

The girl of 2000!

I'm. not. sure. what's. going. on. here... O.o

 Hmmm… How did that get in there?
 
 
Cheers,

2012 Superbowl VS. Supermodels

by T

Congratulations to the Giants and their fans for the win of the 2012 Superbowl. It is so exciting the bask in the glory of being a winner, right? But, we know one person that wasn’t so happy after the game…

I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times. My husband cannot f—king throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time.

Supermodel and wife to Patriot’s quarterback Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, was caught on video saying this after being escorted to an elevator after the game. Apparently, this statement was said after being heckled by a Giant’s fans on her way to the elevator.

Honestly, I think Gisele let the game and the taunting get the best of her. To blame some of Brady’s teammates for having slippery fingers is no way to show good sportsmanship, nor make them a fan of you any longer. Hey, there is still next year Mrs. Brady.

Moving on…

Good holy HOTTNESS! Adriana Lima brought the fire to Indianapolis with her not one, but TWO Superbowl ads. This just goes to prove that 2012 Superbowl Ad + hottie VS model= wowzers! Watch her sexy and sweet Teleflora commercial below. Hey, even use it to convince your guy to send you flowers.

But honestly, this little guy is spreading all the Superbowl happiness :-)

Girlyornot’s S’moresgasbord

by T

What better way to end a chill Monday night than to make s’mores with your best pal? After a talk about life, boys, and our plans for the blog, Desi and I decided to head to the nearest store to make some yummy treats.

We originally wanted to make homemade Twix bars (the recipe found here), but to our demise we could not find bar-shaped shortbread cookies. And yes, waiting an overall time of an hour to make shortbread cookies was a little too intense for us.

245Desi (who I found out does not like caramel anyway) came up with the brilliant idea to make s’mores! Little did she know I have been craving for these sweet little treats for some weeks now. Great idea Desi, I commend you.

So, being that we had no open fire to do s’mores campfire style, we decided to use Desi’s boyfriend’s stove at his house. So what if we didn’t have flannel PJs and cheesy ghost stories? We still got the taste of yummy s’mores goodness that brought me back to my Girl Scout days.

Get Over Here Sparky- 5 Tips To Get Your Relationship Going

by Desi

It is a new year, which means new commitments,  new love…right?

Lucky for you there is already a special person in your life. But, what happens when dates become routine and the spark isn’t as sparky? Lucky for you, again, the spark can be reignited. Relationships usually hit a rough patch when:

  • you or your partner get too comfortable (I know you like my ripped up tight jeans honey, but these PJs are just SO comfy), or
  • things that you loved about them you hate (Your optimistic personality, its making me pessimistic), or
  • now you each are just bored with each other (Yes, the chicken crossed the road to get to the other side. Another joke, please.)

Before you go throw the PS3 game controller at them, check out these helpful tips to fire up your relationship-gone-humdrum.

1.)    Flirting

Flirting isn’t just for the relationship-challenged (AKA single people.)  While its known that you two are the old ball and chain, your partner may not feel the love all the time. Send cute messages to show that you are thinking of them. Something as simple as a good morning text or a compliment makes all the difference.

You: Babe, you look like a tall glass of water and I am thirssssstttyyy! Lol :-)

Your Honey: Oh yeah? You weren’t thirsty enough to clean those tall glasses that were in the sink this morning.

You: …. :\

When it comes to social gatherings, the worst thing you can do is be that couple that have become conjoined twins. Separate yourselves, steal some glances from across the room while talking to other people. Do not overkill on PDA, give yourselves something to look forward to when you head back home.

2.)    Adventure Time

In your relationship, you two have a lot of adventures to be had and it shouldn’t be something that only happens in the beginning of your relationship. So, get off Netflix and go outside! Going to the park or having a spur-of-the-moment road trip.

Both of you can try picking up new hobbies. Take a couple of weeks to get used to your new hobby, and share it with each other. This can take you to another level with your partner. Forming new memories with your sweetheart and not reminiscing on the old ones is the best feeling.

Some of the best adventures happen when you don’t even expect it. One time my boyfriend and I were heading home when we drove by this bowling alley we past often, but this time we decided to go in and do go-kart racing! It was the best time because it was something that brought out our competitive sides. We made a game out of it and I kicked his ass! (He may have another story to tell though.)

3.)    Playing “The Game”

Just because you’re in a relationship, doesn’t mean that you can’t play hard to get. Make your partner crave you by not always being in their face all the time. I know I’ve said this already, but I think you needed to hear it again. One thing my mom always told me (and admit I ignored often) was to not make yourself too available. Give a little mystery, make your partner miss you.

Remember that hot little number you wore on your first date? Pull that out from the crypt, or wear something new or something you know you can pull off. Surprise your partner. The best thing you can do is to keep your partner guessing.And yes, one thing any Girly can wear is confidence! Confidence is the most important to play the game (Not to mention, sexy!)

Hang with your girls and let your partner chill with their friends some weekends. The last thing you wanna hear /say is,

“Hey what did you do today babe?”

“I hung out with you dummy.”

4.)    The Big Kissing Theory

While you may kiss your partner everyday, when was the last time you had a steamy make-out session with them? Kissing releases chemicals that puts us in that sensual heated moment with our partner for more than thirty seconds at a time.

Try different types of kissing like the “music kiss” –play your favorite song and see where the passion takes you. Or try the “counter kiss”-where you slowly come in for the kiss by rubbing noses then brushing lips slowly till they give in. There is actually a site that teaches you to do this!

5.)    Spend time with Me, Myself and I

This is the most important tip on this list. When you keep your distance from your partner, you shouldn’t fear that they will leave you. Take the time to enjoy being alone. Take the time to finish that book you’ve wanted to read, or write that paper you’ve avoided.

These small tips will help you build new bonds in your relationship and find a new-found passion for one another that reintroduce romance into your relationship.

My Favorite Moon Crescent Girl

by T

Hey Girlys,

I hope you are reading this in good spirits, cause I am sure writing it that way. Thanksgiving is around the corner, so that means “mmmm mmmmm” goodness for our tummies. Just promise you won’t pig out too much. Because nothing is more embarrassing than having a Facebook posted picture of you with two turkey legs in your hand. Just not a good look.

Speaking of Facebook, have any of you had those really obscene pictures pop up on your timeline? Well it goes like this if you have not:

Hm, let’s see about these status updates.

OMG! I can’t believe she got married.

Yeah right, if you think any guy is going to like you with that hair-do you are wrong, honey. Green hair is not for you.

Scroll. Scroll. Scroll.

OMGWTFWTFWTFWTF! Why the hell would someone even… now that is just GROSS.

Yeah. And sometimes it is not even that whole process. I logged on via computer the other day and that was the first thing that popped up. Like seriously spam? You just have to go there to get attention, huh?

Have any of you girlys heard of Sailor Moon? Well, that was my favorite show when I was a tween. I remember coming home from middle school and sitting in front of my TV to catch the last mid-day episode of Sailor Moon. If you are not familiar, Sailor Moon is an anime based on the manga translated Pretty Solider Sailormoon. Teenage girls with names and superpowers based on the moon and planets fight evil in the name of love, friendship, blah blah blah. There is a recommended link for Sailor Moon below.

Anyway, I absolutely loved Sailor Moon. I remember going as far as going on the chat rooms dedicated to the show and the different characters. I was pretty much engulfed in the series. Following Sailor Moon and the people who loved it opened me up to other anime series, but this one has always been my favorite.

The reason I am bringing this up is because I watch a few episodes last night. I honestly couldn’t believe I still remembered the theme song. Word for word. Oh yes.

Fighting evil by moonlight,
Winning love by daylight,
Never running from a real fight,
She is the one named Sailor Moon
Watching Sailor Moon brought back so many nostalgic feelings of my childhood. I wish more cartoons today were like the ones I grew up watching. For me, cartoons were still entertainment, but had this underlying moral lesson. Today’s crap really has no substance at all, just plain stupidity. And if there is moral substance the child is blatantly beaten over the head with it so directly they become chattering clones. It is sickening really.
What is/was your favorite cartoon?
Love,
T
P.s.- if you would like to talk to me about anime email me tahirah.pope@gmail.com , I would love to chat! :)
