Calm down! Calm down Funmi! I have heard about Liebster award. I was not expecting a nomination because I felt I did not know people here on a personal level so I was ecstatic when True Wonderer nominated me. The award is basically for promoting new blogs. I am so grateful. So let’s get to do this

I think I have to state the rules for the award:

  • Acknowledge the blog who nominated you and display the award.
  • Answer eleven questions that the blogger gives you.
  • List eleven random fact about yourself.
  • Nominate up to 11 other Bloggers that you think are deserving of this award ( with less than 200 followers)
  • Let the bloggers know you nominated them
  • Give them 11 questions to answer.

I’m really bad at talking about myself but okay. 11 random facts about me; might not be random but whatever 😒

  1. I make a story out of every conversation or action (recently someone kept her bag on my chair and I was sitting on the chair,* lecture hall chairs* In my mind I thought about making a post on selfishness )
  2. I really love to travel and escape everything but  mandem is too broke to travel round the world.
  3. I have great fashion ideas to be very honest. I am a stylist in my head but I always end up wearing jeans and top to class everyday.
  4. I don’t like animation in any form; I have not even seen Moana yet.
  5. Even with my love for books, I can’t deal with e-books and there are audio books now, how will I cope?
  6. I am very shy or selectively shy. That is why I’m always on my phone or read a lot.
  7. Watching YouTube videos ( mostly vlogs by couples) is a big part of my life. You think I am a joke? Try Ope and Ayo, Karl and Cass, Timi and Ife.
  8. I am very personal about my Jesus.
  9. I don’t eat fried rice, egg, sharwama, chicken pie, sardine, green peas, baked beans, Irish Potatoes, ketchup
  10. I stalk so many couples on Instagram and I get mushy then I snap out of it like 😑
  11. I don’t think I’ve been a good friend to my friends. I feel they do too much for me and I do so little. I am sorry guys😭😭

Done with that so let’s go to questions

  1. What made you to start blogging? I am very spontaneous. I just  googled it that day. I wanted to improve my writing and be consistent so I felt a blog will help me achieve that. I just felt I was loosing my touch with writing and I wanted to hear other people’s opinion about my writing so yeah! 
  2. Do you keep deadline for your blog post?  I am not steadfast with that. I just tell myself I have to make a post at least once in a month. Which I know is very low.
  3. For what in your life do you feel grateful for? My faith, family and the gift of love.
  4. What’s your greatest desire and your greatest fear? My greatest desire is to publish a successful book ( can a girl dream be to big?) My greatest fear is not achieving my goals because of my laziness.
  5.  What is that one place and that one book you absolutely love and would want everyone to travel and read? Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. If you are a reader  and haven’t met Adichie. You need that ketchup on your chips my friend. I have not been to anywhere I totally love so I can’t say 😞
  6. If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why? Understand books (especially school books) by just flipping through * on a Kyle XY kind of life*
  7. Given the choice of anyone in the world whom would you want as a dinner guest and why? Hmmm, Taraji P Henson don’t you just love cookies?
  8. Wine or Whiskey or Vodka or Beer or what? Water please! Water is life (well literally)
  9.  Which was or is your favourite cartoon? Why? Not really my thing. But I enjoy watching the regular show with baby brother. That’s like once in a blueish moon.
  10.  What would you do if there was no” blogging”? 😱 What a boring life. Omg! So dead. Well, I’ll do more stalking, reading and arrgh. It will be hard.
  11. A romantic one liner, for your present or future ‘love to be’? If every decision,pain, gain was to draw me close to you I will do it over and over again ( Okay, maybe not so romantic and too long but 😁)

This has to continue so drumroll someone, I pass the baton to:


Aisha Yusuff

The red journal

The Egg reader

Eleazar Maduka


Okay, so I have to come up with questions……

  1. What motivates you to keep blogging?
  2. How do you feel when you do not get likes or comment on a post?
  3. Three books that you know it is a must read?
  4. What has life taught you?
  5. Where do you feel most relaxed, happy, satisfied?
  6. Three things you do everyday after from the obvious like (eating, sleeping and all)?
  7. If you had the choice what would be your nationality?
  8. What is your favourite movie, series or show or whatever?
  9. Are you interested in politics? Why and why not?
  10. Ice-cream or smoothie?
  11. If you were gifted £1000 what would you do about it?

I look forward to your reply! I can’t wait. Thank you True wonderer for this opportunity. 💕💕
