Monday Listicles

Happy International Women’s day week!

I mentioned last week 8th of March means a lot to me. Which is why I asked for the topic to be Ten things Woman. Naturally I wanted to share with you 10 women that inspired me, 10 reasons why I love being a woman, 10 famous women I want to invite for dinner, 10 women that changed the course of history… You get the idea. Turns out I am not very deep or inspiring. So I will give you ten reasons why women will always win in deathmatch against men. Yep, I suck at celebrating my womanhood. I do however look forward to reading your posts!

Before I do, big shout out to Jessica and Jessica for inspiring last week’s listicle topic.

My son has been having a cheeky week. Apparently being 4 is a real burden. To celebrate good old times, let us do a list of ten for my kiddo. To make him count his blessings. 10 REASONS BEING A KID ROCKS. Or feel free to ask your kids to give you a list of ten why it sucks…

Let us do a list of women, for women, about women.

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!


10 reasons women will always win

1. We can nag any man to the grave

2. We can put on high heels

3. We can cry on demand

4. We can pretend it is well over our head

5. We can fake it with make up and spanx

6. We can annoy a man until he caves

7. We can multitask

8. We can just smile when the check comes

9. We have other women to lean on

10. We can make people

But dear men, fear not because:

      Love the list. See, nagging and annoying never fails. But heels are there for back up :)

    Well, it looks like we had very similar weeks last week and I also had a hard time with this list even though I love and adore everything about women! Love your list – high heels, crying on demand, make up and pretending we don’t understand makes us perfect secret agents. La Femme Nikitas, beautiful and deadly! Great post!

    And yes to all. Especially #10. Whenever my husband washes something in the sink, I have to go look because it’s so rare.

      If only my husband knew how sexy he is when vacuuming he would be doing it all the time… Or at least once, for Heidi Klum.

    Nice! Short and sweet. #2 is out of the question for me, but I admire anyone who can wear high heels and not look like they just crapped their pants when walking :)

    I am convinced that #1 is and always be the creation of life. In short: giving birth.

    My hubs is a baby just when he has a cold. He’ll be dead if he goes through partum pain.

    Love this list Stasha, I think we definitely channeled some of the same thjngs…but the last image says it all:) While he is doing the dishes you are surely wearing highheels, while watching your mini you made while faking it with Spanx and lipstick, while paying the bills, while comforting your friend! :)

    Yes, a wonderful list! Hope you are having a great day!
