Thank you all so much for your kind compliments and awesome suggestions on the Goddess Zuri giveaway! Candace, the creator of Goddess Zuri, chose the winner herself — she has a real vision for her teeshirt and accessory line and each name has a special meaning. She chose Olivia!

Olivia on August 19, 2008 10:30 am wrote: “Miss Bella you are so beautiful, I love your confidence and it radiates :o) Any woman wearing those beautiful earrings are confident, loving life and loving themselves. ?Folami Hoops?, Folami is Nigerian meaning respect & honor me. Those earrings will always represent that when worn or adorn with an outfit.
Its really a treasure and Miss Bella you wear the earrings well.

Thanks so much, Olivia — I do feel beautiful when I wear them. Candace explained, “Goddess Zuri tries to express natural beauty with edge, confidence and attitude. The command meaning of “Folami” captures the essence of what we’re trying to convey. It’s a great name for the hoops. We love it!”

I’d also like to note that another reader, Mariska, suggested the same name later on. But Olivia made her suggestion a day before, so she’s the winner of these earrings. Congratulations to Olivia, and I’ll be in touch to get your mailing address ASAP.

And if you didn’t win this giveaway, don’t give up! I have some great Afrobella anniversary giveaways in store, and fingers crossed I’ll be hosting a big one this week. Keep reading, bellas!
