A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

Animal Print Jersey Dress and An Award

Today's post wasn't going to happen, if I had listened to myself going on about how much Uni work I had to do and blah blah blah.  Don't get me wrong, I do have a lot to do but I also enjoy blogging and believe I am pretty good at managing my time. So here I am writing (time away from the books to clear my head I say) and also time to spruce up and pose like no body's business (old cough model cough).  

Another reason why I am writing this post is because the queen of layering Kelly Roy aka Angie of  fashion me blog nominated me for, trumpet please, because I think this deserves more than a drum roll, wonderful team member readership award.  Ha, me, wonderful team member. Stoked much.  Anyway, big head aside, here are the rules of the award copied directly from Angie's blog:

The Rules
1. The Nominee of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award shall display the logo on his/her post/page and/or sidebar.

2. The Nominee shall nominate 14 readers they appreciate over a period of 7 days (1 week) – this can be done at any rate during the week. It can be ALL on one day or a few on one day and a few on another day, etc.

3. The Nominee shall name his or her Wonderful Team Member Readership Award nominees on a post or on posts during the 7 day (1 week) period.

4. The Nominee shall make these rules, or amended rules keeping to the spirit of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, known to each reader s/he nominates.

5. The Nominee must finish this sentence and post: ”A Great reader is…”

For me a great reader is someone who takes time out of their way to visit my blog.  Leaving me a comment is wonderful too as it helps me to know what I am doing right, what I need to improve on and what is not helping the blog.  I appreciate those who make suggestions in their comments as that gives me new ideas as well.  There are those that do not leave a comment but send me private emails or let me know by word of mouth, that too is very uplifting. 
There are more than fourteen bloggers that I would love to nominate, eg Shawna McComber and Jan Graham-Macmillen  however I must behave myself and stick to the rules so scroll down for my nominees.

  20. Love you for the shout out, Adorable Elsie ... just did this award, so I'm thrilled with the mention and none of the work. Thank you so much.
    I constantly come back to see your pages because you have such a lovely, rich style that I can only hope to achieve. You can take brights and patterns and wear them like no one else. I'm never a fan of chunky, brogue-y shoes, but you just rock these like no one I've ever seen. Brilliant to use the ankle bracelet with it ... what a style narrative! Always a thrill to spend time with you!

  21. Everyone has her own style in clothing and the dress just looks pretty on you!


Thanks for checking out my blog and leaving me a comment. I love reading your views as they inspire me to continue doing this blog. Love Elsie
