Liebster Award - Yay Me and Yay P and P

*drum roll*

*orchestra playing*

*standing ovation*

*Me floating up to the stage to collect my Liebster award in a flowy ball gown, doing the princess wave*

"Ahem. This is such a surprise. I just can't believe it! Me? A Liebster? I'd like to thank the Academy..". *trails off after being told it's not a category of the Oscars*

Just kidding. Peppermint And Paisley nominated me for a Liebster Award! THANK YOU SO MUCH MA'AM! What is it, you ask? It's kinda like playing Tag, except that you're tagging other bloggers (who have less than 200-300 followers). So basically, you're helping them be discovered by your readers. So thank you ma'am.

There are a few rules that go along with it, so READY, GET SET, GO!

1. Thank the blogger that nominated you - See previous paragraph.

2. List 11 random facts about yourself

  • I've been known to put ice cream in the microwave, because I prefer it melted
  • I'm a picky eater. I don't like cheese, butter, margarine, oatmeal, a bunch of Nigerian soups, and too many more to mention
  • I'm 5'2" max. My mum says she's 5'4," and I'm taller than her :p
  • I love HEARTS! My everyday accessory is a ring with 2 hearts that my dad got me
  • I'm a closeted Drake fan *hides face*
  • I've taken French (3 years), Spanish (1 year) and Italian (1 year) lessons - No, I can't speak any of them
  • I currently have 2 jobs (one full-time, one part-time)
  • I talk to myself. A lot. As in, lips moving. With audible words. 
  • I love shopping, but I get overwhelmed after about an hour or two. 
  • If I could, I would eat bread, cakes, and pastries EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.OF.MY.LIFE.
  • I'm deathly afraid of animals. Like I'd cross the street if I saw a dog on the same side as me. And I once woke up screaming and falling out of bed, because I dreamt that a cat brushed by my leg.
3. Answer the questions posted by the blogger who nominated you

What would you be if you were:
  • an ingredient/food? 
    - A  very moist, warm chocolate cupcake, with a surprise filling!
  • a movie character?
    - A sexy siren
  • an item of clothing?
    - Lace lingerie
  • a book?
    - An etiquette guide or historical romance novel
  • a color?
    - PINK!
  • a song?
    - A mix between something jazzy, bluesy, classical, and new age. It has to be haunting, yet lilting. 
  • an animal?
    - Yuck. A flamingo, maybe? Or a butterfly.
  • a month?
    - Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
  • a place?
    - Monaco or Greece or Paris or Italy. An island with white sandy beaches and crisp, clear blue seas
  • a scent?
    - Jasmine/Rose
  • a word?
    - Meh, how do I choose one? I'm tempted to say SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS, but gawsh, it's just stressful. LOVE! (it just came to me)

4. Nominate 11 other bloggers *this is actually the hardest. For the past 3 days, I've found only 9 blogs I like with less than 200-300 followers.*

Vegan Nigerian (She's vegan for real. I checked.)

5. Ask your nominees 11 questions

  1. Why is your blog name what it is? (e.g. mine's Berrry Dakara because it's an amalgamation of 2 nicknames from my Ogoni and Igbo names. That, and it's a play on my Ogoni name too)
  2. Who's your favorite celebrity and why?
  3. What color shoes are you wearing right now?
  4. Would you wear an engagement ring on your middle finger or fourth finger? (Yes it's such a random question, I know)
  5. What's your dream vacay destination?
  6. #TeamNatural, #TeamRelaxed, or #TeamItsJustHairChillOut?
  7. When was the last time you prayed?
  8. What's your favorite color?
  9. What number child are you?
  10. What's the last meal you cooked?
  11. Would you rather do 100 jumping jacks or 75 squats?
6. Notify your nominees
Coming right up!

Ok, hope you had fun reading. Thank God it's Friday! Tomorrow, I'm helping paint a school and teaching the kids 'Public Speaking.'

Have a pretty weekend! Kisses from moi!
