Present Jam: Boshe Nlo by BURNA BOY
My blogger of this month is Desmond of Quirks and Outfit, I recently came across his instagram account and I immediately clicked a link in his bio that took me to his blog. I read about 4 of his blog posts – a thrift post, a beauty post and a few of his outfit posts, and I like how he handles the beauty post because for some reasons, it is believed that only females are allowed to do beauty (I strongly disagree with that belief). Desmond is a young and relatively new blogger. I can tell that he has a high sense of humor and it will be really fun to hang out with him. So yeah, lets meet Desmond.
- What is your name and how old are you?
My name is Vincent Desmond and I am 17 years old.
- Tell us a little about your blog and how old it is.
My blog, Quirks and Outfits is a fashion, lifestyle and beauty/male grooming blog. My blog is about 4 months old.
- How did you first get into blogging?
I used to have an old blog, back in 2012 when I barely even knew what blogging meant. But I started Quirks and Outfits last year mostly because I needed a hobby and I also really enjoy writing and having a platform to show people my creative side was something I wanted.
- Who has impacted you most on your blogging journey and how?
This is a bit tricky, because a lot of people have really left there impact on my blog, but I will go with Collins of The Street Haute, because he was one of my favorite bloggers long before I stared blogging, and I think he has got an amazing and unique sense of style. And because ever since I started blogging he has been my blogging ‘Mr Miyagi’
- What is the most challenging moment on your blogging journey so far?
I am not quite sure I can pinpoint a moment but the most challenging thing about blogging for me as to the photography aspect.
- What has your blogging journey taught you?
Self-worth. Really high up the ladder is self-worth, I have learnt that being different is not just okay, it is the best. And I’ve learnt that failure is not necessarily a bad thing, because whenever I fail at doing something right or reaching a particular goal, I always double up my effort the next time I have an opportunity.
- What else do you do other than blogging?
I am a student at the University of Port Harcourt.
- Who is your style icon and why?
I have many, I can go on and on, but internationally, it’s Adam Gallagher and my Nigerian style icon is Adebayo Oke-Lawal.
- What is your favourite fashion brand and why?
Orange culture. I love how each pieces tells a story and is usually so detailed, and they are all quirky and usually touches gender limits which is something not a lot of Nigerian brands do, especially male Nigerian fashion brands.
- Where can we find you on social media?
I am on Instagram @quirksandoutfits and Twitter @quirksandoutfit. Because apparently has a character limit for your username too.
