I am SUPER honored to be nominated by the beaaautiful Ms. Kesia owner of IslandKynks (thank you love!) for the Fashionista Award hosted by That Chic Fashion Blog.
Part of the nomination is to answer a few questions and then to nominate other bloggers and share the love so here it goes:
1. What motivated you to start blogging?
The number one reason was because I personally found so much help online and I truely believe that if it was not for the online naturalista community I would not have come as far as I have with my hair. My family were very supportive but I was able to share & learn through the online community and wanted to “give back” in any way I could. If my blog can help one transitioner/natural I am a happy girl! Plus I am obsessed with all things natural so this was a way for me to unburden my family who have to listen to me go on about hair A LOT! 🙂
2. Favorite movies?
I am a big crime, “true life”, thrillers and “movies that touch the heart” fan so: The Godfather, Blow, I am Sam, Schindler’s list, American Gangster, Donnie Brasco, The Departed, In America, The Pianist, Invictus, and basically ALL Johny Depp movies because he is an amazing actor & HOT!
3. What is you’re dream career?
I would love to own my own Cafe where have a little section to sell DIY Jewelry and homemade Hair products (mainly butters) .I want to work with a non-for-profit organization in Africa to help raise funds for African Women and children to help build hospitals and schools.
4. Top wish list items at the moment?
I do not REALLY need/want but I wouldn’t mind a ticket to visit New Zealand to see my best friend who got married and had a baby and I couldn’t make it for the wedding or birth or her beautiful baby girl.
5. Favorite television shows?
Currently just finished Game of Thrones, Hannibal & Grey’s Anatomy impatiently awaiting new seasons!
6. What store do you find yourself shopping in the most?
Forever 21, Zara, H&M, Pimkie
7. Favorite fashion designers?
Charles and Keith Wong (CHARLES & KEITH Shoes and Accessories), Calvin Klein
8. Describe you’re dream vacation?
Going to a lush tropical island with my sister for a little bonding time doing absolutely nothing apart from visiting the spa, sun bathing, eating good food, drinking yummy cocktails, visiting local markets and mingling with the locals!
9. What are the goals for you’re blog?
I hope to be able to help some people through my own personal experiences, learn from others and develop a great connection with my readers and other bloggers! I would love for it to become and learning and sharing platform.
10. If you had the opportunity to interview a celebrity, who would it be?
If I had the opportunity (and the capability of inventing a time machine) I would go back in time and interview Tracey Chapman! I love her voice, music & her hair!
Go ahead ladies!
