My family and friends are mostly the people that has impacted in my blogging journey.

Most challenging moment would be when i first started my blog. I was so scared and didn’t know what to do. I always felt i needed certain things like a camera, new/flashy clothes and shoes lol, so silly of me right? but thanks to Annabelle’s video where she talked about how to start a blog. That video really gave me the push i needed and that was when i started writing and posting full time on the blog.

Having to run a blog and also go to school has taught me how to manage my time. Even though i’m not an expert in time management, i’ve really improved on how i do things that are necessary

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.

  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.

  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.

Hey guysss, it has been a minute, I’ve been up to something lately and I will be gisting you about it in my next #currentty I am tag.

As busy as I’ve been, I still read lots of blog posts, reading blog posts actually gives me joy. My blogger of this month is Tosin Toge. I first discovered her on IG when @nigeriafashionblogger featured her and I was fascinated by how comfortable she looked in her clothes, and so I looked her blog up. I read almost all her posts that night. Let’s meet Tosin

My name’s Olutoge Oluwatosin (though Tosin Toge was given to me by my mum and it stuck so I get called that mostly).

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

My blog is my space where I “keep” my pictures or that was the intent initially but it’s my personal space where I have full expression of my style and “rant” too

3. How did you first get into blogging?

Unlike most bloggers who loved writing and all. I don’t even know how to. I got into blogging because I wanted a space to rant and then feel relieved but I saw what a few others where doing and I continued from there.

Greatest challenge is consistency and that’s where I look at Cassiedaves and because I can totally relate as a Medical student. How she kept up with the whole loads of books to read is still a wonder.
