Kreativ Blogger, Cute Blog, and Versatile Blogger Awards

Hello lovely ladies...

Today's post is about a couple of awards that were passed on to me by three amazing ladies who are also bloggers and are oh-so-kind!
I've been meaning to do a post about my awards, so I can proudly display them on my blog, but I never had the chance until today.
This give me room to enjoy the Inspired by Huggies/Retro Polka Dots Manicure I currently have on!

Now on to the awards. First up the Kreativ Blogger Award given to me by Shannara at Nails and Stuff.

The rules:

1. Link back to the person who gave you this award
2. Complete the form below
3. Award 10 other blogs and let them know in a comment or e-mail
4. Share 7 random thoughts about yourself

The Form:

1. Name your favorite song:
First question, and I'm thinking "this is hard". I have too many favorites.
I love so many songs, but I mostly love all worship songs though. An all time favorite of mine in RnB is "All my Life" By KC and Jojo. Here's a song that I run to and love to sing on most days:

2. Name your favorite dessert:
My favorite dessert changes depending on my mood. Lol... I currently am head over heels in love with cheesecakes though! I used to hate cheesecakes, but recently it's been a love affair.

3. What ticks you off?
It takes a while before I get mad or get ticked off. Usually, it's the littlest things that drive me over the edge though. You could do something sooo big and mighty and it wouldn't affect me. But do something you might consider a small offence, and I might get ticked off.
Oh.. Oh.. Wait, I just thought of something that generally ticks me off! Bullies tick me off. I seriously dislike bullies! Ohhhhhh, don't get me started on how much I dislike bullies! I am not, nor was I ever a victim of bullies, but I can't stand it when I hear the story of a child being bullied, or when I watch a movie where someone was being bullied. So yeah, Bullies tick me off!

4. When I am upset, I...
Generally try to pray about it first. If it's a person upsetting me: I tell the person that I'm upset and then I try to work things out. If it's not a person making me upset, I listen to music and remind myself that all things work together for good. It's easier on some days and harder on other days, but prayer helps me through.

5. What is your favorite pet?
I don't have any pets.

6. Black or white?
Why just these two colors? Lol... more options please. Ok, I'll pick black... but let it be know that Purple and Red comes before black any day! ;-)

7. Biggest Fear:
Come on Son! Lol.. Don't ask me that. I really don't have an answer to this... wanna know why? Check Isaiah 41:10. 
Really I try not to let my fears get the best of me, or become BIG enough to be considered a "biggest fear".

8. Everyday attitude:
This too shall pass
All things work together for good. 
Try your best and leave the rest.

9. What is perfection:
A word that somehow found itself in the dictionary, but can never ever get an image beside it because there's nothing to represent it. (You like that uhn? lol.... Yeah.. I just made it up). Lol...

10. Guilty pleasure:
This Blog and everything it represents. Nail polishes, more nail polishes, more nail polishes, Shopping, coupons, discounts, freebies, and more nail polishes. *Sighs*.

7 facts about myself:

Ohhhh, it's time to really know more about me.... 

1. I love to laugh A LOT! (So all the "Lol's" You see on my blog are not just to fill up spaces... I'm really laughing..lol).
2. I give people the benefit of the doubt way too much. (Yes, you are all saints to me! Lol)
3. I became a nail polish collector/blogger/lover late last year (Sometimes in August, 2011)
4. I love God and trust in him.
5. I am originally Nigerian (I was born in Nigeria, lived there a while and moved to the U.S).
6. I am a Nurse (Betcha didn't know that!). Lol...

And finally...
7. I had a major car accident in March 2008. Very long story short, I was driving back to school and my car flipped over about 4 times. It resulted in what the doctors call a spinal cord injury and for now I use a wheelchair for mobility. I am independent and thank God for my life everyday. I believe I'll recover fully, but until then, I live my life full of joy and happiness and absolutely have no regrets. :-) 

Wow. That was the shortest I ever told the story of my car accident. I Hope I haven't awoken your curiosity? Lol... Now you wanna know more ehh? Oy! Ask away if you do. Don't be shy, I don't think any question is "stupid/silly". 

Finally, the rules say to:
Award 10 blogs:
Well, this is hard! Everybody on my blog roll is creative in their own amazing way! I can't possibly pick 10 blogs! And no, this is not a way to cop out of picking blogs, I go on your blogs and I see y'all's post. The art of painting your own nails in itself is Kreativ, and you all deserve  this award. SO, if you haven't already gotten this award or done a post about it on your blog, I hereby bestow on you the crown and title of a Kreativ Blogger!  Hehehe.. And So it shall be. Arise and be merry! Hahahahahaha

*Pauses and thinks to self as I type*
Well, Now.. to blog about my other awards or make it into another post? This post is long enough as it is.. and if you're like me... You are probably.... uhh.... yeah... hello??? Are you still there?!?! 

LOL... Okay, now that I got your attention, I shall merge all awards! Most of the questions are the same, and the rule is kind of the same as well.
Alright.. Let me fetch the questions that aren't the same from the second award.

This second award was given to me by the lovely Ashley at Art Evolve. To read the full rules of this award, please visit this link on her blog. As I stated, I'll answer only the questions that are different from the ones in the Kreativ Blogger questions above. 

1. What is your go to makeup product?
My M.A.C powder and Ruby Kisses Lip gloss. 

2. What was your favorite fashion trend of 2011?
I don't really follow trends, but I learned about holographic nail polishes in 2011, and I must say, they are currently an absolute favorite of mine. 

5. What is your middle name?

Uhmm... I shall not disclose this for privacy reasons. TMI, IMHO. Lol.. 

6. What was the last song that you listened to?
Well, it's the Youtube song I posted at the beginning of this post. Praise is what I do by William Murphy. 

7. Cats or dogs?
I'm not big on animals, but I've been known to love certain cute little dogs. 

Phew, that wasn't so bad. The rest of the questions in the Cute Blog Award are the same as those in the Kreativ Blog Award.
This award also says I should award other bloggers, so Once again... I Award anyone reading this. :-)
If you want to answer the questions to this award, please visit Ashley's blog to get the full list of rules and questions. 

Edit: I got another award, and decided to merge it in  this post as well. 
Finally, The Versatile Blogger Award was given to me by Ms. Lizard over at Nails by Ms. Lizard.
The rules in this award said I should say 7 things about myself, which I already did.
Also, I pass this award on to everyone who blogs regularly or about many other different things.
I actually have two people in mind I want to give this award to, because not only do they blog about nails, they blog about so many other things.
I give this award to Oreleona at The Pristine Notion and Yolandaas at Pink and Leopard Prints.

Once again, I'd like to thank Shannara Ashleyand  Mz. Lizard for these wonderful awards, and for the opportunity to be able to share more about myself with you lovely people. 
Live, Laugh, Love.
Thanks for reading. Till later, God Bless. 


  1. hahaha I love the part about you truly LOL-ing when you write it.. take care x

  2. Congratulations! Love K-Ci and Jojo...those were the days, such a classic track :)

  3. Thanks ladies. :-)

    Holly, Indeed, Indeed. The good times, the good songs. Not all these garbage we hear nowadays. *sigh*..

  4. Hiya Lizzy O - Yeah I agree with you on bullies. They peeve me off too. Especially now with all the social networking, bullying has taken a whole new dangerous dimension. :(

    Congrats on the awards! I liked reading your story!

    1. Yes, the cyber-bullies are also getting to be really bad. I don't understand why kids and even adults are being mean to themselves. It's unnecessary. I pray it all changes soon.

      Thanks for enjoying my story. :-)

  5. Yeah Lizzy...it's just so repetitive/unoriginal/annoying or maybe it's just me getting old LOL.

    1. It's definitely not you getting old. Lol...
      I love getting the awards from all my wonderful lady blogger friends, but when they are repetitive and so much the same, it's not as much fun.

  6. Oh I meant music nowadays not the awards! Sorry! Awards are always fun everyone deserves to be a winner :)

    1. Ohhh.. ooops! Lol

      Yes, Yes, the songs... I can't remember the last time I heard a really good one. But they keep trying, so I'll cut them some slacks.

  7. Thanks so much! Ill post this next time I do an awards post.. xxx

  8. LIzzy!!! i love reading your posts because they make me smile and you always crack jokes in them:) evrytime i get on blogger i'm like, i gotta read all lizzy's past posts lol just to catch up! thank you so much for the award!! nobody has given me an award directly before thanks a lot :D
