DINNER IN THE SKY, ATHENS.

1+

Ever been to a restaurant that made you forget about the food? This is what happened when we had our first meal in Athens at Dinner In sky in Athens. Oh wait, and we we’re the first Kenyans! Yass! I honestly can’t remember half the things we ate or can I say none? I mean how can you even concentrate on what’s in your plate when you have been flighted 50 metres high with the most stunning views from the sculpturally lit Acropolis and Athens City?

#TEMBEAKENYA: RECLAIMING MY SANITY.

0
Hey good people! I finally got time off for myself over the weekend and took a much needed break from mommying to just really sleeping eating and indulging a little because thirst and also somewhat reclaim my sanity and celebrate the fact that we continue to successfully raise an almost 5 month old. Yasss! I had to close the year with a bang-ish and actually give myself a treat or what I’d like to call “push present-s” besides shopping online (by the way the addiction is back in full swing and my entire wardrobe is now fashionova!!) Judge me not!

MATERNITY WEAR TIPS + WHERE WE ARE AT.

0

It’s very scary to imagine that God trusted me with raising a whole human being. Did you know that half the time it’s practically guess work?  There’s no manual to raising these little humans.  In between sore breasts, cries that drive me nuts and nipple grabs that have me screaming all over the house, I’ve finally managed to spare some time aside and share what was my go to maternity style/wear while preggers and do some catching up on our lives with a month old litu human. PS: I’ve been postponing this blog post for a while now since I’ve been trying to catch some sleep when baby is asleep but today, we’re doing this! Also, I felt I needed the break. Being in the house full time can drive you insane. I remember telling my very good ol’ fried Carey before I had baby that  I’ll stay in the house for three months, why would I want to leave anyway. Last week on Friday, I literally called her and took back those words. Lmao!  Mama loves her baby but needs a break too!

BUMPING & GLOWING.

0
There’s no denying that these pictures actually show that my body carried the baby very well apart from the morning sickness and high level emotions that weighed me down. However, today I choose to focus on the GLOW UP that came with the hormones. 😀  We can’t deny the glow up here, well of course with the help of a super facebeat thanks to John K and the healthy  hair!  Yes, I finally rocked MY real hair here. Good-bye extensions!  For the longest time, I really struggled to get my hair on track and healthy as well as getting rid of my very bad acne and there’s no denying that  these pregnancy hormones did a very commendable job with my hair and skin and a few other areas! 😀 If you’ve been a keen reader, you’ll notice I’ve featured this dress here before I think It looks way better and hotter on a pregnant woman!! 😀 I’ll let you be the judge.

EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER & LOVE OF MY LIFE.

2+

Hey Yo!! Before we get into today’s post, I want to deeply thank everyone who sent their warm and sweet messages following the GRAND arrival of our little one. We are so grateful and we thank God. Now let’s get into the details of how those 40 weeks 5 days we’re probably the most emotional and draining weeks of my life because girllllllllllll what a ride. What a ride that was🤷. First off, with  today’s post, my intentions are pure ladies and maybe gents. I’m not here to discourage anyone but simply just sharing my own experience to hopefully enable you to be very open minded about pregnancy. I was so used to hearing women say what a magical journey it was and how they’d do it again in a heart beat and I expected it to be the same for me. Honestly speaking, mine wasn’t anything close to magical. I had some very few great moments here and there but I’m not certain  if I’d do it again in a “heart-beat”. A lot of thought will have to go into considering baby #2. Hah! Again, this is just my own personal experience as every experience is different.

COLD SHOULDER.

1+

I think it’s  high time I stopped looking forward to weekends and just let days unfold as they come. Of late,  all my weekends have just been a total mess. Total shit load! Excuse my language. I honestly cannot wait for the day my health/body will be back to normal again. It’s just overwhelming to feel so sick constantly and at the same time deal with drama and BS. Anyway, what’s life without a little drama? But as I’m getting older, I’m finding myself losing patience in a lot of things. This is unusual of me cause I’ve always been such a patient person (I think😂🙄) & the tolerance to BS is slowly dwindling. I remember stating this a while back in my taking stock post. People are always trynna take you for a ride, take you for granted and the list is endless. Human beings! Urrrgggghh!  I mean it’s the 21st century. What the actual F!🙄🙄 On a lighter note, On Saturday, I didn’t know I was wearing two completely different shoes when I was leaving the car. I normally change my right shoe everytime I’m driving and this time I totally forgot to change and I walked around looking like a lunatic and there’s no way I’d have gone back given how the rains we’re pouring gosh!🙄🙄

OBSESSIONS, REFLECTING & BABIES.

Anyone else over this Nairobi heat like I am? Sigh!  It’s way too hot for my liking. Gosh! I think for the longest time, it’s evident that I’ve been obsessed with fashionnova and it doesn’t go a time where I don’t feature their items this only shows how amazing their outfits are.   And not only I’m I in love with their jeans but also jumpsuits. I featured one of their jumpsuits here which is an all time favorite and I can’t wait to get my hands and body on some more. Be sure to check them out. Also, how cute is this crop top I got from MRP Fashion? I bought it ages ago when I was traveling to Greece. Speaking of traveling, how long has it been though? I miss being above the the clouds and exploring different places culture, food. It feels like it’s been a lifetime. I’m looking forward to this trip we’ve planning with my girls which we or rather, I have kept pushing for months now and it think it’s about time I went outta Nairobi to cool off and take a breather for a second.

STUNNA. YAY 0R NAY?

0

Hey yáll! Happy Friday! I finally got my hands on Fenty beauty’s stunna lip paint! I mean, It’s never too late. I decided to try stunna cause 1) You can never have enough lipsticks; 2) It’s been a minute since I got my hands on some new lippie and I wasn’t settling on anything less; 3) Lippies make me happy and bring joy to my life; 4) Everybody is trying it out and it looks so good on every skin tone! and 5) I love me some  badgalriri! She’s amazing! C’mmon. I’d probably buy into everything she says, buys, sells, makes, name it… literally. 😉

UNUSUALLY BOLD.

0

Howdy howdy! Let me start by saying, I finally finallyyyy settled in my new home. I anticipated it was going to be super duper crazy moving but not as crazy as it was considering how unpredictable the rains we’re. I’ve always been a huge fan of organizing spaces, but this time round, I probably was more exhausted and drained than I enjoyed putting things together.  Getting rid of all the clutter was just way too hectic but again, my OCD levels do not embrace assistance in this department so I’d rather take 100 days organising but have it done right. Anyways,  glad to have that done and dusted. Well, in today’s post, it’s all about going unusually bold with lipstick! And hey, happy FriYAY! 🙂

TAKING STOCK.

Happy FriYAY! Yasss, first post of 2018 is finally here. Hooorrayyy! Well, obviously I’ve been away for a while, nearly 2+ months now. It’s been a rough couple of  months from being quite “unwell”, losing a total of 8kgs (noooooooo) and basically felt like I’d lost touch with the world and with myself. I have since added 33ograms though, Lol! I honestly felt like I was just existing but not in the body I’m used to normally. But I’m glad to be finally back on my feet and finally feeling normal again! It gives me so much relief. Let’s get into in now; Taking stock.
