The Sunshine Blogger Award

I think I can now officially say I’m a blogger. Is there anyone who owns a blog (especially on WordPress & Blogger) without eventually being nominated for these awards? I am now in the cool crew! Shoutout to Didi of TheBlackkBeauty for the nomination.

Here goes nothing…


Questions by The Blackk Beauty

  • WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BLOGGING?

I love that I can spill some of the madness going on in my mind, tell stories and have people I’ve never even met read it. It’s therapeutic in a way, I’d say. I also love being able to play with themes & colour schemes, create a brand out of my name in a way. Content creation in general is awesome. Tasking, but awesome.

  • WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB?

I want to do a host of things, so I don’t really have a dream job. My dream job has changed so many times, from model to pilot to air hostess and now a big shot lawyer/writer/blogger/business woman. I’m just too indecisive! All in all, I want something I’ll enjoy, something that aligns with my purpose in life.

  • IF YOU COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WHERE WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

Interesting question and I’d say the UK because of the weather & the fact that the Nigerian influence is huge there so you won’t really miss the real Nigeria too much. If you do, you can easily travel back. I’ve never been to the UK before! I would also say Australia because I’ve lived there before!

  • IF I GAVE YOU A MILLION NAIRA, HOW WOULD YOU SPEND IT?

Ah! I would give tithe which is 100,000 Naira, then with the remainder I would put 650,000 into savings until I think of the best way to use it (probably for something charitable & investments), and use 200,000 to start a business & also help my already existing business to flourish. I’d probably take 50,000 to ‘treat myself’ & people I know. I’d use it for makeup, law-related books & clothes. Yeah, I love shopping.

  • WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM AND WHY?

I would say Instagram. This is because I’m obsessed with photos and I just love following the right people which equals having such nice photos to look at once I’m scrolling down! Instagram also has stories, likes, comments & other awesome features, so there’s no need for dependency on Facebook and Snapchat. Another close favourite would be Twitter though – Twitter is WILD.

  • WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE FASHION QUOTE?

There are many, but for now “Shopping is cheaper than therapy.” Not trying to downplay the need for therapy o, but it’s just a funny quote to me!

  • ANY CHALLENGES FACED AT BLOGGING?

I would say getting more readers & overall growth. I would also say time management. Content creation is not a major issue right now for me.

  • WEAVE OR NATURAL HAIR?

Weave, because It’s versatile and I am still trying to figure out my natural hair. I like weave because it is protective and I grow my hair with it. However it’s itchy, but I still enjoy having my real hair out whenever I take down my weave!

  • DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE

Still in the works, for now, I would describe it as very ‘aunty’ – a term my friends and I came up with to describe really old school, fashion murderer (not a positive thing) things. I just can’t be bothered most days, so I’ll also describe it as lazy & thrown together. I’m making a conscious effort to put more effort in though!

  • WHAT’S THE FAVOURITE MOVIE YOU HAVE SEEN THIS YEAR?

Fast & Furious 8, very action-packed, hilarious and mind-blowing. Still wanting to see The Wedding Party though!

  • WHAT’S THE MEANING OF THE NAME OF YOUR BLOG?

Mind of Amaka simply means look into my mind. I have a lot of things going on in my mind, a lot of thoughts – happy, sad, reflective – that pass through my mind each passing day. Now and again, I’d like to pull one or more out and share with the world.


The sunshine blogger award is given to bloggers by other bloggers who are inspiring and creative. Once nominated, a blogger is required to:

  1. Thank the blogger for nominating them and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
  3. Nominate 11 other blogs and give them 11 questions to answer
  4. Notify your nominees
  5. List the rules and display the sunshine blogger award logo in your post.

Frankly, I’m not a huge fan of these awards because the rules tend to be quite cray cray especially for someone as lazy as me. 11 people?! Haba! I’m sure If I were to list up to 11, at least 9 would have probably been nominated before! I’ll just do my best, let them come and beat me. I nominate:

  1. The Pearly Life
  2. bowaleXO
  3. girleccentric
  4. Urbanoversabi
  5. Diaryofa20somethng
  6. Life of Oreofe
  7. Ihuoma
