Versatile Blogger Award

I have been nominated for a Versatile Blogger Award by Edel McNamara I am so surprised and thankful, I just could not believe it. Its the first time I have ever been awarded for my blogging and I must say it feels good and I love it. Thank you thank you so much Edel!
Here are the rules of the award:

- Thank the blogger(s) that have nominated you;
- Share 7 random facts about yourself;
- Nominate 15 fellow bloggers that you recently discovered or follow regularly;- Let them know you have nominated them;- Add the versatile blogger award to your blog;

Here it goes, 7 random facts about me:
  1. My nickname is China because of the shape of my eyes -I used to get teased in primary school because of my eyes, and it made me upset. But I love my eyes now because they are different.
  2. I am very picky and particular about anything and everything -This is one other reason why when I go shopping I need more then an hour, quality takes time and I am willing to wait for it.
  3. I am currently on a diet and fitness craze -I am a bit curvy and I have been less active during so now I just want to look good in a bikini. I suspect that this year will be VERY hot in South Africa since we experienced our first snow during winter.
  4. I have freckles on my nose that just started developing on my face recently -I am beginning to love my freckles, my mum has them too.
  5. I drink black coffee with no sugar or milk every morning -This is all my mums fault, lol. She got me hooked on this.
  6. I have thin, long and soft hair even though I am African, which means I do not have kinky hair -I love my hair, even though it is thin and all, I never have problems with it, except when I want to plait cornrows and they un-plait easily or the stylist has to be a little bit hard on my hair because it is so soft and slippery.
  7. I buy issues of all my 5 favourite: ( Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Seventeen) fashion magazines every month when they come out, and Grazia South Africa every Friday -This is just a habit, I honestly feel incomplete if I do not get any of them.

Here are my favourite blogs, I know you will love them as much as I do. So please do check them out, comment and follow them: (In no particular order)

Stay Sexy and Stylish. - Hle

Retail Sale Junkie

I have been recklessly splurging on retails. Every time I go window shopping with my friends I can not leave the shop empty handed. Right now my bank account might be sitting on zeros. But any girl would love any of these items that I bought. I mean first of all I needed a new bag for school, that I found at Accessorize  and I have been searching high and low for a gold choke; while I am on about the choke: I found it very frustrating that I had to search everywhere for the choke, isn't it that when an accessory or any fashion item is on trend every major retail or chain store should  have it?? Luckily Woolworths came to my rescue and I found the very last one on their mannequin, I had to ask one of the sales assistant if I could buy it and she went away for almost 20 minutes to ask the sales assistant from the accessories department to find a price for me and I got it for R150. I guess patience really is a virtue and when you want something you have to be determined to get it and do not get impatient.

Sunglasses - Mr Price
Gold Choke - Woolworths

Bag - Accessorize
Clip-on Vintage earrings - Contempo
Spike ring - Edgars
Full-finger ring - SassDiva 

 Oh and most importantly I found one of my best buys on sale this past weekend at Luella. I will cherish these black ankle leather (London Boots) boots for as long as I live. :-D
