WOOHOO! What a week! After the Blogger Recognition Award, I received a  second nomination for the Liebster Award.

The Liebster Award is also about recognising New Bloggers and their hard work! Therefore, I would like to thank Laura, from http://iamlauracharles.com/, from the bottom of my heart. Her blog is very stylish so when you’ll have a minute, go and read it. She shares fashion tips and travel experiences.

liebster award for Olivia's New Life blog

I feel very happy and the emotions are overwhelming at the moment. Blogging is hard core. In addition, to my medical degree, I try to find a couple of hours here and there to continue Olivia’s New Life, but I must confess that I am not as regular as I hoped to be. So it’s nice to receive these two nominations. Readers and fellow bloggers remark the work of love. Thanks to you all!

Now, it’s my turn to nominate 5 other deserving blogs.

But before, Laura asked me 3 questions:

Why did you start blogging?

Getting into med school was such a transforming experience. I went through a lot of personal growth and now that I am in med school, the emotional changes, the lifestyle changes to accommodate the rhythm and intensity of the degree is incredible. So blogging is just a way for me to reflect.

Plus, I like writing and I love drawing. I put together an original way of telling a real story using a fictional character and illustrations. I’m having a lot of fun doing it.

What are some bloggers that motivate or inspire you?

I use Jeff Goins’s  material to help with writing blocks and inspiration. I also like Michelle’s Just A Little Glow to keep up to date with beauty.

products. Via a bloggers’ group on Facebook, I discover Lauren’s blog Lil Olive Tree (https://www.lilolivetree.com/), it is a cute and informative blog.

I keep my fashion style in check with http://www.afrostylicity.com/.

Finally, on a more serious note, I have a genuine interest in renewable energy and so I read Renewables in Africa.


If you could only take one more trip, where would you go?

Without a doubt, I would go to Zanzibar and climb the Kilimanjaro. It’s on my bucket list.
