Okay, I am a very happy woman right now. I won a giveaway on Blogger for the first time. And I don't remember the last time I won anything and I have the fabulous November Grey to thank for it. It's this fab eyeshadow/liner by Becca. I was given awards (THE STYLISH AND VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARDS) by two dear bloggers. I want to thank Ibhade and Nutty J for giving me these awards (Yep, two of the same award just goes a long way to say how stylish I am. Lol)

You guys are awesome.

Though I have done this before but I don't think if it was an award and since I haven't changed one bit, I am pretty much going to say the same thing.

Seven things about me right? Here goes

1. I am not particularly a very patient person. I can be sometimes when it is really important that I should be especially with the people I care about. I am a bottom line kind of person. Don’t beat about the bush. Tell me what I need to hear. Tell me what is important and very fast too if you don’t want me to get really pissed.

2. I am not a materialistic woman. Don’t get me wrong. I love every good thing that money can buy. I have dreams of wearing priceless gems to parties organized by The Billionaire club (does that exist?) which my man happens to be the president of (I told you it was a dream and babe, I am a huge dreamer). All I am saying is that you don’t have to have tons of money to impress me. Honesty, consistency and loyalty earn you huge marks with me. I am not going to stop being your friend because I realized you couldn’t get me a Louis Vuitton bag. I will not sell my soul for a diamond bracelet. I will be with anyone that makes me happy and fulfilled even if he doesn’t have a lot.

3. I can be a tad too clean. I might remind you of Bree Van de Kamp of Desperate Housewives. I do drive everyone crazy sometimes. “Don’t drop the cup there!” “Pick up that bottle cap!” ‘That shirt is dirty. Do your laundry!” So my hands are always doing something. Washing dishes, cleaning, sweeping etc.

4. I am a shy person. I get uneasy when people stare at me even when I know that they didn’t mean to be rude. To walk into a room filled with people can be very difficult for me.

5. I am a realist. I would like to believe that there is a good side to everything and would like they say, look on the bright side but I believe in embracing reality. So I love to be told the truth about every situation that I find myself in. I believe in seeing things the way they really are and then try to be optimistic.

6. I am passionate about the issues of the female gender. They call it feminism. I believe in empowering women through education. I believe women deserve to be treated with respect. I believe that crimes against women like rape and forced early marriage are crimes against humanity.

7. I am very passionate about music. Every day, I thank God for the gift of music.

Now, I give these prestigious award to....

So I am off to their blogs bearing glad tidings!

Keep keeping it real guys!

Lily Johnson


  1. Lily Darling! I am so glad about your prize and your awards! I don't know of anyone more worthy than you! Also I love the little insights into the real person Lily. I think you are modest for such a beautiful young woman! Of course people look at you! You are gorgeous! What impresses me even more than your beauty is your lovely spirit. You admit you like "things" but wouldn't trade them for experiences! I don't believe anyone would ever have enough money to purchase any part of your heart!

    Thank you so much for passing on the award to me! That is just lovely. You made my day!

  2. It's a pleasure knowing you sister..*hand shake*.

  3. I'm down for realism and cleanliness! we can be friends. But being shy is depends on the situation. But you need to overcome the shyness of being stared at by switching your focus to the people looking at you and not worry about that looking at you. It's a mind game, and you can play it to overcome those nervous feelings.
    And happy new year!!

  4. Realism is my middle name. I am clean but I won't say I am anal about cleanliness. Cool to know things about you

  5. @Linda: Thank you soo much Ma. You are such a wonderful person. Hugs.

    @Ibhade: The pleasure is all mine dear. Thanks.

    @Anyaposh: Thanks for the advice. I do like your blog and it's good to know that we can be friends.

  6. @Noe Noe: Thanks girl. You are the best.

    @Nice Anon: Thanks for the comment. Being too clean isnt always a good thing though.

  7. by the way, I give you an award! check my page :)

  8. I love realistic I guess I am loving you right now...good to know some new things about you.

  9. Darling Lily, thanks for the award. And you know you are deserving of them don't you?!! you are one lovely talented Chic.

    Gf, materialistic was invented by men to make women demand for less. We deserve to seek out male partners who are capable of taking care of us and our offsprings. It's backed by evolution!!

  10. i love the way you described yourself and i wish all nigerian girls had ideals like you.but anyways 10 gbosa! for you

  11. @Ribka: Of course it was for you dear Ribka. I will check your blog out for the award. Thank you so much!

    @Lara: Thanks Lara. I love people who are realists too so the feeling is mutual.

    @Ginger: Thank you so much dearest, you deserve that award because you rock girl. But you know that dontcha?
    Yes, we deserve the very best in life i agree with you but i just wanna be with who would make me genuinely happy and not some bloke who would always tell himself that I wouldn't be with him if he didn't have money. It is kinda personal and I have my reasons.

    @Anonymous:Thank you very much for the comment.

  12. Congratulations on the awards, my love - so well-deserved!! :)
