Good morning fam’lee,
Hope you are all doing good.
So i was nominated for the ‘Liebster Award’ by the lovely Ugonma Ukam. I’m supposed to answer 11 questions and then nominate 11 other bloggers and pose my own 11 questions to them (i dunno why Ugonma asked me 12 questions *Side-eyes her*). When i was just a ‘blog reader’, i used to come across these nominations on the blogs i used to visit, and it looked like a lot of fun to me, and i really wished i could participate in it. So here is my first nomination by Ugonma…yipppeeee!
Now, to do this, there are certain rules to play by…….
· You must link the person’s blog who nominated you for the award.
· Answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you.
· Pick an additional 11 people to nominate with UNDER 200 blog followers.
· You cannot nominate the blogger who nominated you.
· You must inform the nominees that have been nominated.
So here are Ugonma’s questions, and my answers below……. ‘henjoy!
I started my beauty blog on the 21st December 2012, and i did so because i love to write and i also love all things makeup and beauty, so i thought it would be a good idea to write about makeup and let people learn from it. However, this isn’t my first attempt at owning a blog…..i’ve had 2 in the past, but i wasn’t consistent with them, maybe because i wasn’t passionate about the core purposes of those blogs. But when i started this makeup blog, i just couldn’t get enough of it. Here we are today…..still going strong!
Have you ever felt like giving up on blogong and how did you conquer that feeling?
#GASP! Errrrrrr….no! NEVUUUR! I can't give up on my beauty blog!
If you are given 1 million Naira what will you do with that?
Hmnnnn….an extra 1 million naira will do a lot for me right now ooo! But first of all, after paying my tithe, i'll let the rest sit in my account while i think of something productive to do with it ‘cos if i just start spending away, i'll never know what i did with it all. So i'll basically use it to make more millions.
What do you hope to achieve this year?
Well, this year, i have a lot of plans of my own…..but who knows what God already has mapped out for me? *huge grin*. So, i'll just sit back, enjoy the ride and go wherever HE leads me. Last year, i put Him first, and He helped me achieve things i never even dreamt of. So, i’ll choose His plans over mine anytime!
Your top five makeup/Fashion Product/item?
Ok, let’s see…. It’s mostly makeup ‘cos i’m not a ‘fashion-person’
· Marykay foundation
· Any good brow pencil
· M.A.C ‘rebel’ lipstick
· Maybelline ‘baby lips’ lipbalm
· Zaron’s ‘black velvet’ eyeliner
What is special about your Blog?
Chei! I wonder too oooo! But most people say they love my simple conversational way of writing ‘cos it makes them feel like i’m chatting with them one-on-one. Others say they love it ‘cos they learn a lot from it. Ok, i think it’s special because i ‘made it my own’.
What can you say about my blog?
Your blog is really versatile and i like that. You write about anything and everything, so your readers can't just get bored with your blog contents. Kudos dear!
If you had to choose from NO HAIR STYLING and NO MAKEUP all your life, which will you choose?
Ok, lemme shock you all here….i would choose NO MAKEUP. I love makeup….yes, but i can live very well without it. I wear my bare face everyday, and i only apply makeup for my blog posts. What i do is that i do a full look on my face, take pictures of the look, and then wash it all off *covers face*. I also apply makeup if i have a nice occasion to attend.
But on the other hand, i ALWAYS make and style my hair! There’s always something artificial on my head. Infact, i hardly carry my natural hair oooo! It’s bad, i know but i can't help it.
Who is your MENTOR?
In makeup blogville or in the makeup industry?
Anyways, i’ll just answer both. In the makeup industry, i look up to Banke Meshida of ‘BMpro’ and the late Adenike of ‘Ewar’, while in the makeup blogville, i love Dinma and Stella’s blogs. I know you said ‘mentor’ as per just one, but i mentioned a lot…..ntoin! *tongue out*
What makes you visit a blog the second time?
Where will you see yourself in the next five years?
In the next 5 years, by HIS grace, i would have had my own fully established brand/line of makeup products. My blog will still be here of course, and i’ll be bigger and better!
Diamond ring or Gold ring??
Diamond definitely! I really don’t care for gold jewelries.
So that’s all! Hope you enjoyed reading. Now, it’s time for me to nominate 11 blogs….uuuhhmm…let’s see….
