Thank you to Berry Dakara for nominating The Vegan Nigerian for a Liebster blog award! :)

After a bit of research, I discovered that the Liebster Award involves tagging/nominating fellow bloggers who have less than 300 followers. I guess the aim is to encourage them to keep blogging, which is pretty sweet. There are a few fun rules to go along with it:

1. Thank the blogger that nominated you
2. List 11 random facts about yourself
3. Answer the questions by the blogger who nominated you
4. Nominate 11 other bloggers
5. Ask your nominees 11 questions
6. Notify your nominees

Thanks again Berry Dakara :) Everyone go check out her cool blog.

2. 11 FACTS

1. I can't snap my fingers.
2. I balance serious reading/literature with dumb TV shows.
3. I wouldn't mind being trapped in a bookshop for the rest of my life. Not even kidding.
4. I would like to travel the world. 9 countries so far and counting... I have a long way to go.
5. I speak French.
6. The fictional character I identify with the most is Nick Carraway from The Great Gatsby
7. If it wasn't for my alarm, I'd wake up at 2pm everyday.

11. I'm a Christian


1. Why is your blog name what it is? Pretty self-explanatory. Cuts to the chase.

5. What's your dream vacay destination? Such a cliché but some kind of remote island - sand, sea, sun, the works.

7. When was the last time you prayed? This afternoon. 
8. What's your favorite color? I've been drawn to green lately. I also had a purple phase not long ago. But blue will always have a special place in my heart - we go way back. 
9. What number child are you? 2! 
10. What's the last meal you cooked? rice and efo
