Alluring n Young was nominated by my wonderful friend Emzlee who I frankly admire for her fun and insightful posts on Side By Side. This time around, it is the One Lovely Blog Award.


Thanks a lot Emz for believing in Alluring n Young.

This one has got simple, yet hard rules but fun all the same as it affords me the opportunity to ask myself that very pertinent question- Who am I?
Here are the seven rules:

*Thank the person/people who nominated you and
include a link to their blog.
*List the rules and display the award.
*Add 7 facts about yourself.
*Nominate other bloggers. (Emz wisely removed the number
of bloggers to nominate)
*Let them know they have been nominated.

Seven Facts about Ebele
♥ I can appear lazy when faced with a job/task that I do not care about or have no interest in but workaholic when doing what my heart loves.
♥I do not have a constant favourite anything- colours, food etc. They all change with time, weird?
♥Give me music, novels and travelling tickets and you have made my day.
♥Even though I am very feminine in appearance, I am tomboyish at heart.
♥I love exploring new things, places and events.
♥I often wonder why people think I am stubborn.
♥I LOVE the good things of life!

Well, that tip of the iceberg will be enough for now folks.

I have thought long and hard on who and who to nominate for this award because most of the blogs I follow are lovely too. So, I am nominating them all but in a very special way, I nominate Harry of Sad Music, Dark Literature and Positive
Thoughts 2 for having a very lovely and interesting blog.

So, there you have it. Thank you once again Emz for this award. Keep being lovely and sharing lovely posts with us.


An award to usher in 2016 seemed appropriate especially as WordPress recently reminded me that it is my two years anniversary of blogging with WordPress! Thus, this award holds a special place in my heart.


My great friend Harry from Sad Music, Dark Literature and Positive Thoughts 2 nominated me few weeks back for this award. (Forgive me for the delayed reply). Harry has been more than a friend, he is a huge inspiration to me and my blog and for these, I cannot thank him enough. He runs a wonderful blog and I’d advise you to go visit his blog right away because he inspires, entertains, educates and informs through his blog.

There are some rules for this award but I honestly cannot abide by all of them (pardon me). They include:
Ø Thank the person/people who nominated you. (check)
Ø Answer the question from your nominators.
Ø Nominate eleven other bloggers.
Ø Give them eleven questions.
Ø You should check out the blogs I nominate and follow them if you wish to.

Let me try answering the questions from Harry…
What is the greatest thing about the internet?
Communication – whether with google and other search engines and websites or with friends and foes.

Who is your favourite person from history and why?
Hmmm, I would go with Nelson Mandela out of the numerous others because despite giving most of his youthful life for his dear country, he chose to rule them for just a tenure when he could have made himself a life president; after all, he wrought the freedom with his life.

If you won a million pounds, how would you live the rest of your life?
Invest – in business, people(especially children) and God, then enjoy my life doing all the things I ever wanted to do without guilt or fear.

What is your most embarrassing moment?
I cannot think of any right now, sorry to dash your hopes. ***winks

If you could choose a particular period of history to be born in, when would it be and why?
It is this present period, the digital age. The reason is obvious – technology (minus all the evil and it would have been really perfect).

If God granted you the wish to change one event from history, what event would you change and why?
I’d quickly change the chasing down of Lucifer from heaven to earth so as to have heaven on earth.

What is your secret weakness? (and he promised not to tell anyone)
Not that I do not trust you to keep my secret secret Harry my friend, but I simply do not trust the internet. So, no divulging of my secrets, sorry.

Who is the world’s worst millionaire?
I have no idea was my initial reaction, but on second thoughts, it us that millionaire whose millions enriches only himself and his family, the selfish millionaire.

What is the greatest household gadget ever invented?
Tough one now, washing machine I think.

How do you relax?
Books (especially novels) and music (especially R n B)

Which biscuit would you describe as the very best?
Yet to get to it.

The next stage is the nomination of blogs for this award and this is where I have to start bending the rules to suit me, I will nominate eight blogs;
The V-Pub
Success Inspirer
Ramblings of Nekaaar
Mere Desh Ki Mitti

That is it for me, eight blogs nominated. I have these eight questions for you guys. Feel free to participate or not, not compulsory. It is for you to have fun with.

My questions;
Why do you blog?
What is your best experience of 2015 and why?
If the world were to end in the next twenty-four hours, what would you do within those hours?
What is your favourite past time?
On a dark day, what lifts you up?
What is the change you would like to see in the world?
What do you have at the top of your 2016 bucketlist?
Who is your favourite person of all times?

Hope you have as much pleasure as I did doing this.

My versatile friend, Lisa nominated me for the VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD and I thank her immensely for deeming me fit to share in this. Lisa is a talented writer with so much up her sleeves. Her blog is full of fun and intelligent posts with challenging challenges in the mix.

  • Nominate those 10-15 bloggers for the Award — you may include a link to this site.

Then comes the hard part…

Seven facts about me…

I love riding horses and has never ridden one.

I love the seas, oceans and all.

I am probably not as intelligent as you think I am.

Music can lift my spirits when everything else fails.

I’d rather read novels than my recommended text books.

Sometimes my own company is the sweetest.

I believe in love, life and miracles.

Those are the ones I can think of at the drop of a hat. So I hope you guys have loads of fun with this.

Rob of the V-PUB my acquired WordPress mentor and friend nominated me once again for another award, this time, it is THE ENCOURAGING THUNDER AWARD! Rob is the most selfless, caring and encouraging friend I have had the privilege of relating with on the internet world. Sometimes I feel that if not for him, I would have quit blogging at one point or the other. Thank you so much for this Rob, and for everything else. Please visit his blog, it is full of fun, excitement and camaraderie.

Now onto the awardencouraging-thunder-e1427793461525. The rules are easy and simple to follow which makes it more fun.

RULE #1: Post the award on your blog. (check!)

RULE #2: Grant other bloggers the award. (on it)

Then comes the Dos and the Donts

  • Do not abuse or misuse the logo.
  • Do not claim that it is your handmade logo.


  • Enjoy the award. (check!)
  • At least give thanks via comments, likes and/or mentioning of the blog that you received the award from. (check!)
  • Mention your blogging purpose.

My blogging purpose… a bit tricky I tell you.

I started blogging because I wanted to write about stuffs that interest or annoy me, to write about daughters and mothers of our land and how society treats them. I still blog about these stuffs but sometimes, I find myself deviating and rambling. All join I guess.

Well, that is it!

I choose to nominate these wonderful bloggers as well:

That is it ladies and gents. Have fun with this.
