Liebster Award – I Got Nominated!

liebster award

So I got nominated for the Liebster award by my home girl Grace of Epiphany29 and New love Praise of Mystylelookbookseries. Thank you so much ladies, I’m here feeling all cute!! Foreal 😀 This is about to be a lengthy one so grab a smoothie!

The Liebster Award is a fun way to recognize and promote new up and coming blogs of a good standard and the rules are pretty simple. All you have to do is…

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you for the Liebster Award.
  •  Display the Liebster Badge on your site.
  •  Answer the questions you were sent.
  •  Choose 5 (to 11) blogs to nominate.
  •  Send 10 questions for your nominees to answer.


Here are the questions asked from Grace and my answers 🙂

1. What inspired the start of your blog?

I can’t particularly point it to one thing but let’s say i wanted to share my opinions to others (because my friends are tired of my constant blabbing), an excuse to go around and take pictures and most importantly to inspire at least one person. It brings some form of fulfillment.


2. Got any pet peeves?

LOL this might turn to a long list so let me summarize-

When people are late(parties are exceptions) or make me run late because I’m waiting for them.

People who walk slowly or stop suddenly (especially when i’m rushing) in the middle of the sidewalk. MOVE

Unnecessarily shortened words/people that say ‘pixs’.

Slow Cashiers.

People who ask questions during movies.

3. Do you consider yourself an extrovert or introvert?

Both. Depends on who i’m with, where i am or my mood. I can go from dead silence to a bubbly pain in your ass.

4. If you could change anything about yourself what would it be?

I want to be cliche and say ‘ohh nothing, I love myself the way i am” but blehh i want to be taller fam and some extra booty uno. That would be nice.

5. How would you describe your personal style?

My style is constantly evolving but for now I’ll say comfortable with an edge.

6. What’s your favorite time of the day and why?

Evenings!!! Just because! And most of all the fun stuffs happens in the evening. Getting up in the morning just means less sleep and i ain’t about that life. sorry

7. Do you ever get “writer’s block,” and, if so, how do you deal with it?

Definitely. I take several seats. Binge watch series, dance to my fav jams and just be occupied with everything other than writing. After all these, inspiration definitely comes.

8. What would be the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery?

Pay my tithe!! Gotta pay your tithe’s people of the Lord.

9. Which talent don’t you have but want?

I envy badass sketch artists. I can do illustrations but you know Illustration pass illustration lmao. It’s just like God why uno giv…gi..g…ughh

10. What inspires new ideas for your blog?

From movies that i watch to gist i hear and really random things. I try to get inspiration from anything.

11. Three words that best descibes you?

Crazy (like good crazy), Nonchalant (I can’t be bothered about so many things) & Hustler (Gotta make that money so that our kids can be on the next#LagostoLondon)

Guys, did that program on a low make you think about your life for just one second? lol

Questions from Praise & my answers

When did i start blogging?

I started blogging May 2013 (Chai, i’ve tried) on my previous blog OfficialFantasy but moved to Toyinwithfashion September 2015.

What do you prefer for breakfast?

Pancake and Peanut butter, Plantain, Sausages and Fresh juice (If only i had as much time in the morning before exiting to school)

If you were to visit two celebrities who would they be?

Jay R Ellis (because he’s my bae and he don’t even know)

Rihanna (Just because i want her wardrobe and maybe she cant infect me with that rock-anything-and-slay fever!)

What’s your best quote?

I have so many quotes for different occasions so yeah. I just added this to the list today >>”Never let what you feel make you forget what’s real. Facts over feelings. Don’t let your emotions overpower your intelligence.”

Who’s your favorite writer and why?

I read- medical textbooks lmao so yeah no time for novels but the few i’ve gotten my hands on i’ll say Ted Dekker because really who wouldn’t love his work?

What country would you love to visit and why?

They are plenty mbok. Paris because i want to take a picture by the Eiffel tower 😀

If you were to stay at home all day, what would you do?

Sleep, sleep and sleep. Then maybe watch series and take ice cream 😀

What movie have you seen that made you cry?

lol my thug life won’t let me cry

What have you done before that you wish you never did?

I’m not sure..can’t think of anything.

    As for you birthday, I suggest that you give yourself a treat. Spoil yourself. I’m sure there’s that shoe or dress or desert you’ve been eyeing that you might not necessarily need. My sisteh, here’s the chance to get it.
