Liebster Award – Yay!

Hey, my loves!

So in my last post, I told you guys I was nominated for the Liebster Bloggers Award by my girl over at Simply Janae! So here’s my response and my nomination list!!


Liebster Bloggers Award:
is an online bloggers award that helps shed light on small up and coming bloggers. It gives us a chance to promote our blogger friends to our readers. One thing I am learning while blogging is we are a network, and every blogger I’ve come into contact with is amazingly talented and we all want the same thing. What makes it so awesome is, we want the same thing for each other, too. So let’s go!

My Favorite Blog:  
God, there’s so many. Hmm.. I would say the blog I frequent the most is With Love, Dani. I began following her after networking in a facebook group, and we’re in a lot of the same groups together, so I was always seeing her content from Facebook to Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. Drawn to her blog because its fashion!!. She’s open to her readers about herself, but she just has really bomb content on fashion on all kinds of looks. I am not the most fashionable person, so I enjoy looking at the different looks she puts together and suggestions. I may have to ask her to come shopping with me! Check out her blog, I’m more than positive you won’t be disappointed.


Questions from Taneisha (SimplyJanae)

  • What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
    • I would get back into music. I miss writing and recording, but it’s expensive. I miss writing everything down on paper and singing it out. My music mentor I met at Morgan State was probably the first person to really give me a chance, but I started a family at 20 and music became something I “used” to do.
  • What is the most annoying habit that other people have? 
    • Being worried about everything that doesn’t concern them. LOL, granted I am guilty, but during my transformation, I’ve spent more time focusing on self than on others, and I swear the stress relief I feel is amazing. I can’t sit and dwell on things or people I cannot change, and it burns me up when other people do.
  • What do you think you’re really good at?
    • Uhm… I don’t think I’m really good at anything, LOL. Probably cooking and parenting, my kids love the hell outta me for a reason, right? *shrugs*
  • What would you like to get better at?
    • Managing my stress. The things that do get to me, are things in my personal life but they can’t be controlled. But my health takes a hit when I stress, I’m too young for it.
  • What’s your favorite movie?
    • Queen of the Damned
  • Why do you blog?
    • It’s an outlet really. I’ve had a few other blogs but I wasn’t consistent enough with them to keep up with them. My GGF and I started a blog in 2015 (The GirlFriend Column) but we fell off because of life, so I continued writing and just migrated over to TSW.
  • What advice would you give to a new blogger?
    • Be authentically you. Network with other bloggers, especially those who inspire you. I’ve never reached out to a fellow blogger and had a bad experience. There’s so much inspiration with content creators but just do your own thing, stay in your own lane and you’ll be fine. Try not to develop blogger envy, it’s a nasty feeling to have, or to watch someone else have against you.
  • What is your favorite drink?
    • Right now: Wine – White Merlot
      Liquor – Crown Apple
      Mixed Drink – Strawberry Hennessy and flavored margaritas with a sugar rim.
  • Who is your favorite music artist?
    • All time fave is Aaliyah
      Who’s getting me pumped right now, CARDI!
  • Are you usually early or late?
    • Late, and I read this article that said people who are always late are just the best!
  • What pets did you have growing up?
    • Gold Fish. I had 8 of them :).
