Fabulous Giveaway for my One Year Blog Anniversary


"I have come Full Circle, Happy 1st Birthday FI” - Fashionably Idu




Exactly one year ago today I hit ‘publish' and my first blog post went live. I birthed this baby. Out of my love for style and fashion. I’ve learned and I’m still learning. I've evolved and I’m still evolving. Most importantly I've made some truly awesome connections and great friends from all over the world. I’d visit Netherlands, Singapore, Indonesia, Paris, Zam and Zim (Zambezi and Zimbabwe), Bavaria/Germany, Czech Republic, Canada, London, Italy to name a few and feel confident that I have good friends to hang out with. 

 We’d probably interact like we’ve known ourselves for ages. We’d share our passion for fashion, style, food, travel and great products. We’d talk about fashion weeks, who was wearing what, classic brands, new labels, best cameras, finding great locations, makeup, street style and trends. We’d talk about the challenges and the benefits of what we do. We’d talk about blogger versus wordpress. And we’d probably take pictures 'cos that’s a big part of what we do. The fun will be unmatched. Blogging did that.

The amount of work that goes into each post is intense. It goes way beyond taking and posting pictures. Heck you can do that on your Facebook or Instagram page. A lot of thought and work go into each content that's pushed out. From writing good enough content that will hopefully attract and keep your readers, putting the looks together, photography (hoping the weather cooperates), finding a location to shoot (I’ve learned to always carry a good pair of shoes and a bag, you just never know when you'll need to hop out of your car and take a few shots, hehe), to promoting your blog on one million platforms to name a few. Little wonder some of us are full time bloggers. It really should be a full time job if you want to keep up with it. Honestly, it becomes the core of any and everything you do. Huge kudos to those of us holding down other jobs while doing this.

I applaud my fellow bloggers and style influencers. What we do is no walk in the park. Keep making your mark in fashion and in the world. Grandeur and success don’t come overnight but with all the hard work, the knowledge, the authority, the consistency, the resilience, the passion and the drive that you display, I see it looming in all of your horizons. You totally make it look easy. And for those that have already achieved it, I say keep the flag flying. Huge Kudos again! Stay unstoppable!

Thats my goal too. Be and stay unstoppable. Bigger and better. Inspire others as I am inspired. Not  necessarily 100k followers on Instagram by next month although that won't hurt, hehe. I saw a jump of 700 new followers in a 24hour period last week and I thought someone was playing games, hehe. And it wasn’t the week I was featured on Fashion Bomb Daily, Naija Girls Killing it or anywhere else. Just random. It adjusted the next day by the way, phew!

I thank my ever so fabulous readers for always coming back and sprinkling love, I am very appreciative of you. It’s been an amazing experience and I stay very grateful to you all. 

Are you feeling lucky? I hope you are 'cos I’m hosting a give away of a beautiful jewelry set in conjunction with Takai by Angela in celebration of this one year mark and also as a THANK YOU for reading my fashion musings. I receive tons of messages about their breathtaking pieces that I have worn in the pictures below. This is your chance to snag one.




And this is the gorgeous piece being given away.


All you have to do:
1. Comment on this post
2. Be sure to include your name and email address


The give away will end on Saturday August 1st and the winner will be announced here on my blog and contacted by email. I thank you for participating and I wish you the best of luck, :). 


 Cheers to a very very amazing year. I will reflect some more on where I've been and where I'm headed. And then I will celebrate, :))))). Xo...

  16. Congratulations to you on your one year anniversary! There is no bigger joy than doing what ones enjoy doing and being the natural fashionista that you are, running a fashion blog is probably a second nature to you. I have learnt from it a lot and have enjoyed it tremendously. You not fashion blogging would have been a disservice to yourself and humanity as a whole. So to many more years of fab glam fashion blogs, I say Yay!!!! 1000X

So proud of how much you have accomplished. Oh my goh, the same thing happened to wit my IG followeres the other day, hahaha. I guess we can only just keep doing what we can and things will happen organically :).

    The necklace is so pretty and the pieces you styled in the past stand out. As a blogger myself, i would be happier to see someone else win it. I would always support you no matter what and thank you for always being so supportive and sweet. Hope i get to come hang out with you one day :)).

    The Takai neck pieces are to die for, they are loud, chunky and stylish.....I like the one you are wearing but I would love to win the piece on the giveaway.

  77. Wow 1 year! Happy blog birthday. Your post reminds me about the first time I met a blogger buddy. It was like we'd known each other forever. It was so weird because we'd both only been at it for a few months and only known each other so long but there we were, like BFF's! In a way we share so much between posts and conversations so it makes sense to know one another better than some people who've been around for ages hahaha. Plus bloggers understand just how truly demanding (and fulfilling) a blog can be. Anyhoo here's to another fabulous year of blogging for you.

    BTW is the comp open internationally?

    1. I totally feel you Sonia. I met a couple SF based bloggers and it was magic. Just like you it was a few months into blogging. We felt quite at ease with each other. Laughter all the way and exchange of ideas. If only we had our cameras on us we would have been clicking away just like good ole buddies.

      Thanks a lot darling and yes the contest is open internationally.
