Sunshine Blogger Award


Sunshine Blogger Award

Y’all need to stop what you’re doing and have a sit!!! Your gal has been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award! ***applause and cheers*** Thanks to my amazing friend… and sister from another mother, Doreen over at It’s DD’s World. You guys have to check her out… she has an amazing way with words, and if you’re a naturalista, you’ll want to follow her natural hair journey. This girl is my rock! Thanks Dee xx

So what’s this Sunshine Blogger Award I hear you ask… well, I didn’t know what it was either, but thanks to miracle that’s the wide world web, I’ve since learnt that it’s an award given to bloggers who inspire positivity and creativity… and that it’s awarded by fellow bloggers… how cool is that?! Imagine how mind blown I was to receive this… just knowing that people out there are actually reading me, and getting something out of it!

The nominees for this award have a set of rules to follow, they are:

1. Thank blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

And the questions I received were…

1. What is your country of origin?

– Am from Kenya

2. For how long have you been blogging?

Been blogging for a few months now… my official launch was in October 2017, so still a newbie.

3. Do you make new year resolutions?

No. I don’t know why… I’ve never really thought of it and am sure if I did, i’ll be awful at sticking to them ๐Ÿ™

4.ย  What is the one thing you canโ€™t live without?

My moisturiser… no hesitation! I have terribly dry skin… it’s really bad! La-Roche Posay Toleriane is heaven sent ๐Ÿ™‚ Otherwise I look like I have scales!

5. Have you ever had a major life changing experience? What was it?

Yes!!! Twice! Being a mum has changed the heck out of my life! I can’t go a minute without thinking about them… I live for my kids.

6.ย What does family mean to you?

Everything!!! Without my family, am nothing! We are a tribe… I have the most amazing and loving dad, my mama in heaven looking down on me, my step mum, my crazy siblings, my better half, my munchkins and my nephews and nieces… and I would never trade them for the world!

7. Who is your role model?

My dad and my brother, Max! These are the most hardworking and supportive men in the universe! I admire everything about them… EVERYTHING! What they’ve done past, present, and continue doing. I strive to be even a fraction as amazing as they are.

8. Are you an introvert, extrovert or ambivert?

Ambivert for sure.

9. What is your greatest struggle in life?

Sharing my worries with people I love. I feel like I would be passing them on, and this would make them worry because of my own personal issues. Am trying to work on it though… hopefully one day I’ll be able to easily open up.

10. What is your number one goal you want to achieve this year?

Grow my blog… I really am enjoying this new adventure, and can’t wait to see where it leads ๐Ÿ™‚

11.ย What is your weakness?

Food! I live to eat, while other eat to live! Oh yeah… and cake!

There we have it ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks again Dee for the love and the nomination!

A happy New Year to you all!

happy new year

Happy New Year!!!

Here’s hoping y’all had a lovely festive season, and that getting back to routine is not proving a challenge ๐Ÿ˜‰ And yes… I know… I know… I’ve been missing in action – but I have a very good excuse… FAMILY! Yep, we traveled to Kenya to spend the holiday season with the fam… and it was great! The munchkins had a blast running around, screaming, and playing outside till dark with the cousins. But… wow!… how my city, Nairobi, has changed in 2 years! I discovered lots of new, super cool places. We spent a lovely, relaxing week at the coast at our absolute fav resort, and got to hook up with friends that I hadn’t seen in 2 long years. So yeah… busy, busy having fun and playing catch up.

Anyway, 2017 was a good year… but 2018 will be amazeballs! I have a few things planned for the blog, stuff I’d like to share with you guys. I am hoping to do product reviews, share more finds I love, more recipes, fitness tips, and interview more of my cool peeps. I’ll also try get more blogger friends to share their passion with y’all through guest posts. Sounds exciting right?! Stick around for the fun.

Here is to 2018… may it be as amazing as I feel it will be! Cheers!
