Heyyy guys,

Happy New Month 💕

So my blogger of the month of June  is a Rookie blogger Tunde Aina, His blog is exceptional, you should visit his blog to see what I am talking about, click here

Let’s meet Tune Aina of CurioushubCurious hub

1) What is your name and age (optional)

My name is Olatunde Aina and I’m 22 years old

IMG-20170701-WA0001

2) Tell us a little about your blog and how old it is.

I always find it kind of hard giving a definite answer to this. But I like to call my blog an enlightenment/consciousness blog. And it’s just over two weeks old.

IMG-20170701-WA0002

3) Does writing energize or exhaust you?

To be very candid, it’s always very hard to stop writing once you’re in that “mood”. So I’ll say it energises me, it revitalizes me.

4) Who has impacted you most in your       blogging journey and how?

Honestly, I never had the mindset of opening a blog, it was never in my plan. But after reading Americana by Chimamanda Adichie, I just got that light bulb. So I’d say she played the major impact.

5) What inspires your blog posts?

My posts are inspired by life. I tap into issues that are frowned upon by society, issues people feel shy or ashamed to talk for the fear of being judged. So these things inspire me, to give people a platform to express themselves, without being judged.

6) What is the most challenging moment in your blogging journey so far?

So far, the major challenge has been getting people on to the blog, this is because it’s more like an unusual niche. But I’m still pushing though.

7) What has your blogging experience taught you?

It has taught me patience, perseverance. That nothing really comes easy, you have to keep pushing, keep knocking on that door, till it’s eventually opened.

8) What else do you do other than blogging?

I’m a Corp member

IMG-20170701-WA0000

9) What is your favorite fashion brand and why?

I don’t have a favorite fashion brand, I just get whatever I find really nice. I’m a flirt with fashion brands.

IMG-20170701-WA0003

10) Where can we find you on social media?

Instagram- @td_deluxe

Till next time.xx.

MY BLOGGER OF THE MONTH #4

Present Jam: Boshe Nlo by BURNA BOY

Hey guys,

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.

  1. What is your name and how old are you?

My name is Vincent Desmond and I am 17 years old.

Screenshot_2017-03-28-09-41-05_1

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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’

  1. 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.

Screenshot_2017-03-28-09-42-51_1

  1. 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.

  1. What else do you do other than blogging?

I am a student at the University of Port Harcourt.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

MY BLOGGER OF THE MONTH #1

My first blogger is Funke, when she started her blog sometime in April I was immediately fascinated I had wanted to start my blog about that time (but I didn’t, because I was waiting for the ‘right time’ that never came). The major thing that caught my attention was the name TUTUSDIARY, I thought the blog would have juicy contents knowing it will reveal her dairy… she will write about her experiences I liked the idea. So lets meet Funke

Heyyy guys!

Its been a minute, I know… I missed you guys too.

3. How did you first get into blogging?

I started blogging officially April 2016, but I created the blog January 2016. Before then, I had conceived the idea but never birthed it because I was scared of not being consistent. I closed my eyes to all the if’s and but’s and here I am today.

4. Who has impacted you most in your blogging journey and how?

This will be Sisi of Sisi Yemmie blog. She is a lifestyle blogger/ Vlogger who documents all about her life living in Lagos, Nigeria.

5. What is the most challenging moment in your blogging journey so far?

When I had to relocate from Nigeria to the US and I still had to churn out content with big relevance to people in Nigeria, because most of my blog views are from people in Nigeria. I had to stop blogging for a while, try to adjust to the weather and all, create more than enough blog draft and get back to my safe zone

Funke in America. loool
