Question 21: If you were given $1,000 to spend today, what would you buy?

What a hard question to answer! But since I'm focused on decorating my new apartment, which is all but barren right now since moving to this new great city, I would have to start there. And since I don't want to use antlers in all of my decorating, I'm looking forward to getting to a point where it feels like home, and a great place to rest my head. Throw in a spa massage, and that's a grand well-spent.

Question 20: Where Do You Live Now and How Does It Affect Your Passions?

Our OnSugar Love.Write.Win. Blogging Challenge is really heating up, and this week's prize, an HP Pavilion dv6t laptop, will go to the blog that receives the most followers! Or be the most inspiring, and at the end of the month, you could be rewarded with the grand prize, the extraordinary HP Envy14 Spectre and external drive.

So tell us . . .

Question 20: Where do you live now and how does it affect your passions?

Having recently moved to San Francisco, I'm finding I'm spending a lot more time outside, enjoying the natural beauty around me. Therefore, I'm spending less time in the movie theater, although I've discovered one that is an extraordinary place to see a film — the Sundance Kabuki Theatre. You pick out your seat when buying a ticket, so you are guaranteed that exact spot, plus you get to bring food and alcohol in with you! It's a revelation. So not only am I doing what I am passionate about, watching movies, but I am surrounded by food, my other indulgence! So even though a San Francisco February is too gorgeous to be inside, I am enjoying seeing movies in a whole new way.

Tell us at OnSugar where you live and how your passions are affected! Just remember to tag it LoveWriteWin so that you can be entered in the OnSugar Love.Write.Win. Blogging Challenge!

Question 19: What are five things on your bucket list?

Tell us in a post and be sure to tag it LoveWriteWin. Learn more about the contest.

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. So it's important to keep track of the things you want to do, so make a bucket list and check in with it every once in a while to ensure you're on your way to fulfilling your dreams

  1. Ride in a helicopter — Despite my trepidation of flying, I think that this would be an incredibly freeing experience.
  2. Learn another language — So I'm signed up to take French classes around the corner from work!
  3. Write a book — There was a time I thought I wouldn't have anything to write about. Boy, was I wrong.
  4. Go on safari — Oh to go to Africa, and see the wilderness I've only seen on Animal Planet.
  5. Attend the Olympics — While I really enjoy watching it on NBC, there must be nothing like being there, cheering on your country and waving our flag.
  6. You think we need one more? Yeah, we should probably get one more.

  7. Marry the love of my life — Because who doesn't want to spend every day with their best friend?

What's on your bucket list? Tell us in a post, and tag it LoveWriteWin!

Question 18: Why did you give your blog this name?

I readily admit that the OnSugar Official Blog does not carry the lightness of poetry and prose. However, it's functional, and you know exactly what you're getting! Where else are you going to find our daily question, and all the important information on how to enter the OnSugar Love.Write.Win. Blogging Challenge!

So don't judge a . . . website by its title . . . after all, it could be my favorite name in the whole world.

Sugar High!

Happy belated Valentine's Day! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday full of love and laughter. This week we posed some intriguing questions within the Love.Write.Win competition. From describing the perfect vacation and naming your guilty pleasure to telling us what things in life should always be free and your New Year's resolution successes (or lack thereof), we have been getting to know more about you and enjoying every minute of it! Anytime we get to hear from you, it inspires us and helps us make OnSugar even better. Thank you to everyone who is playing along. Don’t forget, you can join the Love.Write.Win competition at any time and enter for the chance to win the incredible HP Envy14 Spectre. Just follow the prompts and tag your post with "lovewritewin." Happy writing!

  • It is so easy for us to think about everyone we love on Valentine's Day, but it seems as though we always forget one very important person: yourself! Beauty and the Budget gives us 14 ways to love who you are on Valentine's Day. Fabulous!
  • Beautopia shows us that style is one thing that should always be free. Her amazing re-creation of Derek Lam's 10 Crosby in the form of a manicure is ingenious and practically perfect. I was so impressed by the attention to detail and personal touches. Beautopia, if you're reading this, here are some tips from BellaSugar on how to grow long, beautiful nails à la Rihanna. Also, congratulations on winning the HP dv6 laptop for receiving the most comments on your OPI Dutch blog post!
  • Per usual, Food Orleans brings the heat with her amazing recipes and drool-worthy photos. As she gears up for Fat Tuesday, Food Orleans shares her favorite Mardi Gras recipes and lets us know that having fun and celebrating is, and should always be, free.
