Give a brief story on how your blog started:

I used to own an Instagram account dedicated to the TV show Charmed because I loved the show so much.

I wrote my first post on school and came up with the idea of music Monday.

Liebster Award

Liebster Award

Thank you, AwkwardKid for nominating me for the Liebster award! This is the second time you’ve nominated me for this award, I’m very grateful. I really enjoy reading your blog posts and thanks for the great questions, here are my answers:

Are you on or are you going on holiday? If so, where?

I’m not on holiday right now but I think I might be going to Butlins and centre parks in a couple of weeks which is really exciting!

Sweet or salted popcorn?

I like both sweet and salted popcorn however, I wouldn’t have them mixed together. Ultimately, I would choose sweet just beacuse I have a sweet tooth and I love toffee popcorn.

What kind of music do you listen to?

I listen to a lot of different genres of music however I mostly listen to hip-hop, r&b and alternative rock. I like different artists in nearly all genres of music which is great.

Is the reason you started blogging, the same reason you stick to it?

Kind of, I started blogging so I do posts on Charmed, the TV show, which I still do but now I’m blogging more about music and my personal life. Music has always been a passion of mine and its nice to share my music taste with others. I started to do personal posts beacuse I wanted to share my experiences with others and that’s the same reason why I’m still doing it today.

Who’s you celebrity crush?

I don’t really have any celebrity crush except from Zendaya ( you guys all know who she is) and Tara Koltun, a Canadian model. If you don’t know who he his, please look him up and you’ll see what I mean 😉

Would you rather be hot or cold?

I would rather be cold beacuse when you’re cold you can just put layers of clothing on yourself until you’re warm and use blankets. Generally, I think I tolerate heat better but when you’re really hot you just want to strip off all your clothes unless you have a great fan.

What’s your favourite part of yourself in general?

Hmmm, this is hard question beacuse you notice your flaws more than the good qualities in yourself. I would probably say that my favourite part of my self is my generosity and how open minded I can be.

What’s your favourite book?

My favourite book is A Spoonful of Jam by Michelle Magorian. It’s been a while since I read this book, but I’ve always considered it as the best book I’ve read. I’ve also enjoyed reading the Hunger Games trilogy. To be honest, I want to read more books beacuse I honestly believe I don’t read enough fictional material.

What’s your favourite season?

My favourite season is either summer or autumn. I do love the sun and like other Brits, I wish we could see more of it throughout the year.

Where is the place you would like to see in the world?

There are a lot of cities I want to visit e.g. New York City, Toronto etc. but I also want to see places like Niagara falls,  the great wall of China and the pyramids in Egypt.

11 facts about me:

  • I was born in Nigeria
  • My favourite sport to watch is basketball (beacuse I don’t play any sports in real life)
  • I love munching on ice, i’d eat ice even if it was -30 degrees celsius
  • I don’t like the taste of cooked onions
  • I love watching anime
  • My favourite subject is media studies
  • I’m scared of dogs
  • If I could live in any other country, it would be American, specifically New York.

The Blogger Recognition Award

The Blogger Recognition Award

I really want to thank Mike Senczyszak for nominating me for this great award, I haven’t been blogging for a long time so I feel very privileged to be nominated!

I’ve been following Mike’s blog, Solsbury Hill, for some time know and I’ve really enjoyed  reading his posts because they genuinely touch on interesting and intriguing topics that can affect our everyday lives. Also, he writes about what it’s like to be a blogger, which we can relate to, for example in some of his posts he talks about how he finds it hard to feel motivated to write a post, which I can definitely relate with. I like how unique and honest his writing is. It’s funny because I’ve never really been the type of person to like long, thought proving articles but he is one of the few writers where I enjoy reading these types of posts.

So, how did I get started blogging?

I first started blogging in April because I wanted to write posts about one of my favourite TV shows, Charmed. I first created a website on Weebly however, I didn’t really like the platform because it wasn’t as flexible as I thought a blog would be. If you knew me personally, you might not instantly think of me being a music/personal blogger because I seem like more of a quite and conservative type of person which is one of the reason I didn’t want to start a personal blog. Till this day, I haven’t told most of my closest friends about this blog and trust me if you met the people that go to my school, you would too. I first only considered doing posts about Charmed but later decided to write posts on my personal life to meet more people and share my experiences and thoughts to the world. I am also quite passionate about music and I listen to music wayyy to much so later I decided to create ‘Music Monday’ to share my favourite tunes with you guys.

2 advice for new bloggers:

  1. Try not to put too much pressure on yourself to publish posts often. It’s OK to write 1 or 2 posts per week even though most of you have heard that the more posts you publish, the more views your blog will get. This is true, but its important not to burn yourself out by trying to create new material everyday/every other day.
  2. Be yourself and write posts about things that you genuinely find interesting. If you don’t find it interesting then you’re going to find it hard to have the motivation to write.

The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award

Thank you Snugglethisfez, for this awesome nomination, I am very grateful especially because this is the first time I’ve been nominated! Check out her answers to the questions she got on her latest post! For those who don’t know what the Liebester award is, it’s an award that bloggers give to other bloggers through nomination that lets people discover new blogs/websites.

The rules are:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions they have given you
  • Nominate another blogger/s
  • Let them know you have nominated them
  • Give them questions to answer

Here are my questions and answers: 

  1. What’s your favourite Disney film and why?
    My favourite Disney film is The Lion King because I really like the story line and it’s the only Disney film to make me cry when I watched it. Also, I really like how authentic it is, for example the songs in it reflect the languages and cultures in Africa. I just think it’s a one of a kind film.
  2. If you were an animal what would you be?
    If I were an animal I would be an elephant because they’re so cool. Their large and always seem to have a smile on their faces. I once saw a picture of a baby elephant crying because his mother didn’t want to take care of him and it was truly heartbreaking. I think the child cried for about 3hours!
  3. At a special event (e.g. Concert), do you live in the moment or behind a camera/phone screen taking pictures?
    I try to live in the moment as much as possible when I go to a special event because you can’t really relive the experience so you might as well live in the moment.However, I like to preserve experiences by taking photos and videos so I can look back at the memories I’ve had.
  4. What do you wish you were better at?
    I wish I was a better blogger e.g. creating unique content, sticking to a timetable etc. I want to create better content for those who follow and view my blog! Also, I wish I were better at telling people how I feel and think than just leaving it in my head.
  5. What do you love most about yourself?
    I love the way I can relate to people and understand how people are feeling. I am quite good at reading body language and facial expression of people and tell what’s on their minds. I am psychic or telepathic or anything, haha!
  6. If you were marooned on a desert island, what would be the one thing you would take?
    I would take a boat because I could float out to sea and I think it would be more likely for someone to find you in the sea than on the island. With a boat you could get noticed by a ship or something.
  7. What is your most listened to song?
    My most listened to song is now I Love It by August Alsina. I really like the soothing tone of this song and I love grooving to it.
  8. What inspired you to start blogging and is it the same reason that you continue?
    I started blogging because I wanted to meet new people and share my life experiences and hobbies with others. I wanted to share my love for Charmed, music and films with others. Also, I’ve continued to do posts like ‘Music Monday’ to expand people’s taste in music and tell them about good songs they might not have heard before.
  9. Give a random fact about yourself. 
  • I don’t like any type of cheese in sandwiches and stuff however, I only like cheese cooked and on toppings e.g. pizza, lasagne etc.
  1. Create the weirdest and most confusing phrase you can. Be adventurous!  
  • It was a warm summers day when I flew the blue onion spacecraft into the apex of my head teacher’s four eyed yeti monster that she kept as a pet.

Haha!
