It’s already the 7th day of January, I still find myself writing 2017 instead of 2018, it’s just too fast, days ago I was still enjoying my fried rice and chicken *sighs* Time they say waits for no one.

Liebstar award

I was really surprised when Tomiwa of nominated me for my first award; The Liebstar Award!! A pleasant surprise I must say, I’m pretty new here, I mean I’m just trying my best to get a hang of this thing called blogging and I get nominated for an award. 😁😀Thanks a lot Tomiwa.

Let’s get into the nitty gritty shall we?

What is the Liebster Award?

The liebster award is a blogger award for new bloggers or those with a small following. It is a way of giving new bloggers some recognition and encouragement for their hard work. The instructions for accepting the award and passing it on are as follows:

  • Create a new blog post on your blog thanking the person that nominated you, link to their blog and put in a graphic of the award.
  • Answer the questions that were provided, and then share some facts about yourself.
  • Create a new set of your own questions for others to answer.
  • Nominate 10 others and share your blog post with them so they can accept their awards!

Questions and Answers


Tomiwa: What is your middle name?

My middle name is Nnendah meaning the father’s mother.

Tomiwa: What inspired your blog name?

My first name Vanessa!! Some persons choose to call me Vanny, Vannie, Nessy and Nessa. I think I love the Nessy variant most. And Talks? I just wanted my own little space where I could express myself, write down my thoughts and share my knowledge with others hence the name “Nessytalks”, good name isn’t it?

Tomiwa: One awesome movie you’ve watched this year?

I’m not just so into movies so I can’t place my hands on any really awesome one I’ve watched.

Tomiwa: Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Defintely an introvert. I’m working on being more sociable, I hope I achieve that.

Tomiwa: What’s the best advice you’ve heard or been given so far?

“You’re responsible for your own happiness, don’t depend on anyone to do that for you”.

Some random facts about me.


  • I cry when I’m angry.
  • I don’t dislike any Nigerian food except the ones I’ve never tried. I eat almost everything unless I don’t feel like it.
  • I hate stress! Why get all stressed out when I can get things done the easy way. I don’t mean the bad way though.
  • I’ve done a full make over only once and even then, it was minimalist.
  • Well I didn’t know at first but I’ve been told that I’m domineering, strict and bossy but still with a kind heart, “the heart of a mother” as they describe it. Attributes which I don’t think are bad for an awkward introvert like me.

My questions!

  1. What’s one lesson blogging has taught you?
  2. Describe yourself in one word.
  3. How easily do you make friends?
  4. Have you ever being in love?
  5. If you aren’t blogging, what would you be doing?


I nominate every blogger who comes across this post.
