I was nominated for the versatile blogger award yaaaay! This came as a shock to me as a blogger with less than 10 followers 🙂 I always knew I sucked at this stuff! Anyway, thanks Ren ( for nominating me, I am truly humbled.

Now, to receive this award I have to list down 7 random this about me. This is going to be a hard one, so many things are random about me I cant even begin to keep track. hmmmm…

  1. I am strictly a vodka person
  2. I’m so paranoid and basically terrified of anything that takes me out of my comfort zone ranging from lizards,dogs,chicken,8-legged creatures,the dark,fire,deep sea diving, mountain climbing. This one time I went hiking @Mt. Longonot, I wasnt even quarter way up the mountain and suddenly I started feeling like I would have a heart attack or something. Bear in mind Mt. Longonot is only 8km long.
  3. I love my family more than anything though they don’t know it. I find it easier to show affection in action as opposed to saying it out loud. Infact am terrified of uttering the words “I love you”
  4. I humour my boss with sarcastic replies because I find it hard to deal with people who are always in a bad mood
  5. My favourite meal is githeri (plain boiled beans and maize). Weird huh?
  6. I always manage to find short-cuts in life. Or maybe I am just a lucky person 🙂
  7. I find British English posh and sexy and secretly wish I had an accent

That’s a little bit about me, maybe I should have a post dedicated entirely to ‘random things about me’. So here are my 15 sexy bloggers. In the short time I’ve been a blogger, I’ve truly enjoyed reading their posts and at times even borrowed a few writing tricks from them

  1. renxkyoko’s space (
  2. a pretty penny (
  3. the tale of my heart (
  4. the narcissist’s blog (
  5. lafemmeroar ( “Laughing at the malfunction of the universe is better that crying about it” 🙂 she’s hilarious, you should check her out
  6. share your love story (
  7. soul spinster (
  8. the roadside diary (
  9. midnight blurbs (

  11. cafe girl chronicles (

    I share my sentiments with the blogger Lafemmeroar. It is an honor to know that my writing has inspired you in some way. I woke up smiling when I saw this and came over here to your blog. Just signed on to follow, I look forward to your posts.

    PS I do like vodka, but I am pretty much a wine girl myself. 😉

    • Viv says:

      Thanks for signing up, finally I hit 10 subscribers which means I don’t suck that much after-all 😀 I love browsing through your blog BTW, I share your view on most things especially on love. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more from you.
      And yeah, I do love wine too. But when I say I’m strictly a vodka person I mean I don’t cheat on my vodka with whisky, brandy, rum etc. I am more of a vodka-terian 🙂

  6. Thanks Viv for adding me to your list of recommended blogs!


  7. Hi Viv. I stumbled across your blog and noticed your list of seven facts about yourself.

    I just so happen to be English and I live in the county of Surrey. Surrey is one of the wealthiest counties in England and is right near London. This means I am really posh and have an accent that reflects that.

    Have you ever tried Red Bull with your vodka?

    • viv says:

      Ooh, lovely! maybe you can teach me a trick or two on having a polished English accent 😉
      I mix my vodka with all sorts of things but I’ve never really tried it with red-bull. Now that’s something I have to experiment on today.
