On this day a year ago, I started this blog! I was introduced to blogging about a year before I started through a friend. I created my first blog to chronicle my wedding planning journey, it was private to just friends and was called The Wedding Journal. I fell in love with the whole concept of blogging from then on and decided to start a public blog focused on one of my favorite past times, HAIR CARE! 

So on the 8th of June, 2011 I created my first ever post titled THE SCARY TRUTH! I wanted it to catch the attention of readers and it did! One year down the line I have 56 followers and counting :) , about 10,000hits monthly and readers from all over the world!! It's been a real blessing to feel heard and to be able to reach out to many with this platform! I want to thank every single person that has perused this blog and been able to take anything relevant from it and I hope that I will continue enjoying your support!

I have been tagged blog awards about 3 times In the past and have always been too busy to respond accordingly but I think a response in this post will be apt, so I can reveal a little more about myself personally.

One Lovely Blog Award

I received the One Lovely Blog Award from WaistelengthWishes.blogspot.com a few weeks ago and I have received similar awards from Stels of the spring in my steps and Nightingale!So this is in response to all your awards, thanks again ladies :)

In accordance to the rules of the award, I have to share 7 peculiar facts about myself.

Fact 1: I am a 25 year old wife and mother of a cute little boy which I call Ataz Bobo!

Fact 2: I am a lawyer by profession and actually met my hubby at law school!

Fact 3: God is my source for everything, the anchor of my life! I attend an awesome church called The house on the Rock, Pastor Paul has been a blessing!

Fact 4: I am the first born child of my family and guess what? So is my hubby! Responsibility much!!

Fact 5: I don't believe in impossibilities! Truly there is hardly any idea you can come up with that I will say is impossible especially if you believe in it yourself!

Fact 6: that's why I am a budding entrepreneur, I get such a buzz from new, innovative business ideas! I literally stay awake all night long shaping ideas that pop in my head.

Fact 7: I am a hopeless romantic! I am that girl you hear in the cinema sniffing her nose and wiping away tears thanks to a mushy romantic scene in a movie!

Oh and the final fact for good measure? I strongly believe, without a shadow of doubt in me that Naija hair can grow!!

Thanks again for all the support! 

Much love!
