9 Blogs/Bloggers That Rocked My World This Year!
The year has nearly ended and before it whisks away into the unknown abyss, there are a few bloggers I want to give an extra shout out too. I should preface this with saying that I’m grateful to all of my Readers who give me love with your clicks, Likes and Comments, really: Thank You. And with this being the season of thanks and all that good-ish, here are the blogs/bloggers I want to thank for their amazing comments, support and who continue to be a never-ending well of inspiration. There’s so much to say about these blogs/bloggers but I’m going to keep it short and sweet!
- Stella from Fashion Style Police
Thanks Stella for your consistency and support of my blog (and sharing my posts on Twitter). I don’t go online much to see who’s wearing what, I barely know who is on the front cover these days or who bagged which campaign, so I appreciate being kept in the know via your blog. I also took some of your tips on how to be a better blogger and lets see how the wind blows with that, eh!
2. Dana from I’ve Got Cake
Bitch, where do I start with you. Love your Food n Fashion blog and how you lace both with random happenings in your day/life and regale all with heavy dosages of foul language! I love to swear, I almost find it therapeutic, so I have a whale of a time on your blog! Ps you also inspire me to be a better cook…one day, Ha! I’ve enjoyed our Comments Banter and look forward for more to come!
3. Cara from Xocara.com
Really Gurl, thanks for your support, in the dreaded month of October I left the blogosphere for a while, and I’ll always remember your sweet message to me asking me what was up! That apart, I live for the photos of your lil’ soldiers and have really enjoyed seeing you come into your own this year: your photography, style et al. And wooohooo you won my Giveaway, we have to sort that out…Besides your juicy comments, thanks for giving my newly born Facebook Page some luv!
4. Vanessa from What Would V Wear
I think if I met you I’d actually fan out, you remind me of a heady cocktail mix of Debbie Harry and Nina Perrson (The Cardigans). Your blog continues to inspire me, the photography is Beyond, as is your style. I’ve said it before and damn it, I’ll say it again: I want your sunglasses collection! And when I found out you were a Ma to boot, my jaw did drop, I don’t know how you find the time to wear so many hats so fabulously well. Thanks for your lovely comments and support.
5. Fraquoh and Franchomme from the Attireclub
Where do I start with these lovely Gentlemen? They are my one-stop point when I want to read up about menswear trends, which dude wore what at which event or sometimes when I want to be schooled on ‘6 Men’s Office Fashion Tips’. Gentlemen, you definitely push me to write more and better menswear articles. And Big thanks for promoting my Blog Competitions and TV programs.
6. Dana from Dee for Dana
What to say about Ms Dee the Cool Minimalist from Abu Dhabi? Her warmth and positive energy radiate from her words and hers is one of those blogs I’m happy I stumbled across whilst ‘Blog Surfing’. On a side note, I’m also all about her Sexy Bed hair, sometimes I think of certain situations and the hair I would have in each one of them (#TrueTalk) and I can so see myself laying on dishevelled white sheets after a thorough ‘exercise session’ with her hair! And back to the topic at hand- Thanks for the support hon!
7. Nedu From Nedoux.com
I used to think in these days of 150 Words Or Less communication, that for a blog to be popular, it was really more about pictures than words but Nedu’s blog posts prove me wrong each and every time. Her About section reads, ‘Words are the fabric of my mind’, and I truly love to read her finely spun narratives: her play with words, wit…I get transported back to a time when I wanted to do a Masters in Journalism to improve my writing. Anyhoo, back to Nedu- Big Thanks for your support, you make me want to have some kind of Bloggers Cupcake Party in Lagos, so we can stuff ourselves and chit chat!
8. Filomena from Figuring Things Out and VGC
One of the things I dig (Yeees, I said dig!!)about Filomena is her statement low cut, I have deep admiration for women who can rock that look. I also love the way Filomena gives me options via her 2 blogs- when I want to really ponder about certain things ‘Figuring Things Out’ helps with my thought process and when I want to be inspired style and beauty wise (whilst still waxing lyrical), VGC is just a click away. Big Thank for your support and thoughtful comments, looking forward to seeing more of your designs next year. Ps she made that dress in the image below folks!
9. Meron From Fashion Style Mogul
Meron came recently into my blogosphere, and I love her joie de vivre, reading her blog makes me feel young again, tsigh (Haha!). Meron, thanks for your insightful comments and I’m looking forward to more Blog Bonding next year!
Aaaah!! There are three more so I’ll give a quick shout to Naeun from Tongue In Chic ,April from The Promdi Chic and Anwesh Sahoo from The Effeminaire.
And that’s it folks! Again Big Thanks to Eeeeeveryone who engages with my blog in one way or the other. I’m in Virginia spending Christmas with my Big Sis and her family and between the constant Christmas music my sis insists on playing, helping my 10 year old niece design a jumper for her school’s Ugly Christmas Jumper competition (which she won!) and other festive good stuff: I’m Fiiiiiiinally in Christmas Mode.
And on that note: MERRY CRIMBO ONE AND ALL!!!
