Wow, so I’ve been nominated for yet another Liebster! Thank you. AND, I also graciously accept my very first Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! Thank you!! My next place will need to have a trophy room at the rate I’m going.
A Liebster and an SWB seem pretty similar. In my own words, they both are a means to thank bloggers you love and get to know them a little better. It also lets me know that you guys are watching and appreciate what I do, reminding me why I do it. And who doesn’t like talking about themselves, right??! So here we go:
How would you define your style? uhmmmmmm..me? I really like to look and feel my best so I make sure I love every article of clothing I put on. I’m into juxtaposing hard and soft, masculine + feminine, after 5 + casual. [Very telling of my personality, I think.] And I love a good statement piece, especially big earrings to counter my nearly bald head. So whatever that is.
Who are your style icons? Solange is number one. Tracee Ellis Ross is a close second. Lupita Nyong’o hasn’t been doing it long enough to be first, but I see you, L! She always looks amazing.
What is a social issue that you are passionate about? Like Sache’t, I am very concerned with the amount of Black bodies disappearing in amerikkka. I also want to help my people get back on track to understanding, accepting and loving who they are.
What is your favorite style trend this season? Ankle booties! Not really a trend but a staple! can’t get enough can’t get enough
What is your niche for blogging? (i.e) – fashion, hair, DIY, social issues, everyday life, etc: Yea. All that. I blog about whatever- in my words, my perspective. [I don’t have a niche. I don’t think. Do I?]
What was it that made you want to start blogging? Initially, I wanted to share my passion for clothing and accessories.
What is one of your goals as a blogger? I want to bring light to subjects that are less known and/or completely overlooked. From music to visual art to underrepresented stories in the news, I rep for the underdogs.
Are you into art?? If so who is your favorite artist? (Feel free to leave a link to their work) What?! Art is me. I am art. I see other people as art as well, along with artists who create music and food and graffiti murals and poetry. There are so many categories and facets that I cannot choose just one favorite; every artist I encounter is such an inspiration in their own way.
What is your favorite social media site/app? Does youtube count? If not, I guess it’d have to be instagram [because it’s the only one I use.]
Which blogger(s) do you admire the most? Again, I can’t choose just one. I love all the bloggers I follow. I love the unapologetic types. They all express themselves in different ways about different things so I appreciate them for that. I love anyone who freely expresses themselves that can teach me something but is still open to learning something new/hearing a a different view.
What does the definition of sisterhood mean to you? Sisterhood is always being there for your sisters, in the physical world and online. It’s being a shoulder, a tough love giver. Although there are many things that some sisters do that I don’t agree with, I still love them and I’ll remain an adamant defender, even if it’s loving from a distance.
What is your purpose in life? I think the long answer will be ever-changing, but right now, the short answer: my purpose is to be my true self, unapologetically. I love my life. I am happy and free and I believe my purpose is to inspire others to live freely and be their authentic self.
