April Loving…..

Standard

I simply adore and lov the month of April.Firstly as its my birthday month, I love birthdays and am very blessed to share mine with my super awesome cousin Whelan (@mynameiswhelan).Sharing this day with someone special makes it even more awesome. In our family we have alot of April Birthdays so this month tends to be busy and expensive.My gran also has a birthday in this fab month on the 2nd.

April also marks the change of season, cooler mornings, nippy evenings.I am not a summer person, after living in London for so long I love winter. Atleast when its colder one can dress up properly, do your hair and makeup without worrying about the heat damaging your hard work.

April in the UK is known as Black History Month.This sees the celebration of Black people who have contributed to society, its also a time to sample yummilicious food from Africa and the Carribbean.

April in South Africa means Public holidays or Bank holidays on the 27th which is known as Freedom day.

Interesting April facts :

*is one of 4 months that have 30 days.

*birthstone for April is a Diamond.

*April starts on the same day as July in all years.

*associated with Spring in the Northern hemisphere and Autumn in the Southern hemisphere.

*birth flower is the Daisy or Sweetpea

*World Autism Awareness day on 2nd of April.

Blog challenge

As a newbie blogger, in February I kept seen blogs with daily blog challenges posted daily. So curious me followed these bloggers and their challenges on most days. It was interesting to see how different people see things.I then made my mind and I would keep an eye out for the next challenge and sign up for it.

I love challenges but then again who doesnt. So when I noticed the APRIL blog challenge, i signed up and started toying around with blog ideas. The thing I really liked about this challenge was that the aim was to promote your blog posts on Twitter and Facebook(something I already do:-)) and the fact that if I blogged twice today I could skip tomorow. Now this sounded pretty cool to me as I am currently on holiday till the 9th April which means I can blog more cause work sometimes keeps me very busy.

If you are a blogger, I dare you to accept the challenge:-)
For my awesome readers be prepared for lots of interesting posts

Ciao my lovelies
