SUNSHINE AWARD // THE DARK SIDE

I was nominated by the kind hearted beauty blogger, Jackie Harrison from Beautify for The Sunshine Award. Thank you Jackie and thank you all for standing by me through it all. It means a lot.

I thought i could also include an outfit post too but how ironic is it that it had to be when i was an all black outfit....Hahaha. It was not intentional i promise. You all know how much i love wearing colors but the classic all black outfit is here to stay forever. So why not take advantage of the many different pieces we have to throw on in this cold weather by adding some color to break the all black. This outfit brings out my playful personality and would be perfect for an all girls' night out. Don't you think?

I know a lot of you may have read so many of these awards on many other blogs already but we could use some sunshine over on this side of town where it has been grey, gloomy and wet. So thanks a lot Jackie.  It's also another way to connect with other bloggers, get to know me a little bit better...maybe and honor the giver of the award :). So here we go:
First i have to list any any 11 random facts about myself:
 1. I love eating other people's cooking instead of mine. Not because my cooking sucks :)
 2. Hate coconut but love coconut flavored foods.
 3. I usually never know the lyrics to most of the songs i really like and sing. For example, i may be the only person on the planet that still doesn't know all the words to "Someone Like You" by Adele. Watch video below:

 4. I love chocolate.
 5. I can't swim but i love to hang out by the pool or at a beach every opportunity i get.
 6. Christmas is my favorite holiday.
 7. I speak 3 languages: English, Yoruba and Spanglish (Still trying to perfect my Spanish though).
 8. I am a Virgo.
 9. I have pretty much worn the same shade of lipstick for a year: RED
10. I would love to travel the world.
11. I tend to smile a lot when i am shy and in awkward moments.
 Jackie's Questions:
1- If you could have a fashion designer to come to your house who will it be? 
I would have really loved Karl Lagerfield to be my guest because he is a fashion genius, but i think Betsey Johnson is awesome and so talented. She is a party!!

2- What its your favorite music to dance to?
I have lots but lately it has been "Chocolate" by The 1975. How i love this song so much i rock out every time i hear it. You should see me in  my car when i am driving and it comes on, on the radio. On instant replay. Enjoy:

3- If you were a bird where will you fly to?
I want to fly around the world. There is so much to see and it can not be done in one day.

4- What is the first thing you do when you come home from work, school or other?
I love to start my day with a cup of coffee.

5- What its your favorite technology?
As wide as this question could be, I'll just stop at my phone. I am a social media junkie.

6- Where did the inspiration come from for your first post?
It was a summer dress I had and loved to pieces.

7- What will you like to get out of blogging?
To inspire others.

8- If you had an opportunity to meet a blogger who will it be and why?
I would love to meet every single blogger I already know. Especially those i have been in contact with through blogging.

9- Do you prefer to be home or out?
In as much as i love to have fun, i am such a home chick. Home is where the heart is.

10- Lipstick or lip gloss what its your preferences?
Both but there are more days i just would rather have a lip gloss on instead.

11- What its the most exciting thing that has happen to you?
Having a mini me. She changed my life in such an unexpectedly beautiful way. There is nothing greater than unconditional love.
Dear me, if you read it all then you are super awesome and thank you. Now you know more about the gal who loves to inspire others through her personal style. Thank you so much and i hope you enjoyed reading this post. I promise to do my best in bringing you more and it will only get better as i grow each day. Now your comments.
