The other day I was having a very raw and honest conversation with one of my friends. I was telling her how I have come to realize that I hold a very high expectation of people in my life, almost as though people ‘owe’ me. I imagine that since I have been there for them, then they should be there for me. Or since I have invested in a friendship or a relationship then it ought to last for ever. But the harsh reality that has finally dawned on me is that I am entitled to nothing.
Mamamia, this weather though! Eishhhh! Is this where we now pack my bags and go to Canaan? And wait, I’m the only one who wasn’t getting this joke? Haha...Well, that aside, I think I’ve talked versatility before and there is nothing as comforting as having different pieces in your wardrobe that you can switch up every now and then to achieve a different look.
Howdy-howdy! This is another series of my #TembeaKenya posts that I’m super excited to be sharing with you guys. Let me start by saying that Kenya is amazingly beautiful guys and I probably had one of the best weekends. It’s been a while since I went out of town and let loose a little bit. Sometimes Nairobi can be so crazy and you almost get lost in all the pressure and forget to live a little.
There is no greater feeling than giving to meet the needs of someone else’s life. Not giving because of what you want in return or because of a sense of obligation, but freely giving your time, talents and treasures to be a blessing to someone else. It’s incredible how we managed to raise KSH80,000 in less than a month and honestly this really made my heart melt and couldn’t stop but think of how amazing and giving the CCS Kenya team is. Getting a group of guys across every age group who have so much passion in changing lives is extremely commendable. 🙂
It’s been a week since the Annual OLX SoMA awards event was held and I’ve taken a step back the last few days to just sit and think about the whole experience, what I’ve learned so far in regards to blogging and with that said, I have a few tips to share with you. If you are an aspiring blogger out there who is perhaps wondering how to maneuver through this blogging streets, this article is for you.
Live a life full of color, they said. I had a blast this past weekend with two of my friends at the Kenya Color Run that took place on Sunday at Uhuru gardens. The event involved lot’s of color, music, running and dancing despite looking a hot mess thereafter but this didn’t really come as surprise cause what do you expect from a mini holi festival? You know, when it comes to giving back to the community, I’m always sold. Messy or not. I’m down for it any day, any time. However, the main goal for this years run was to promote peace awareness in midst of this election year as we celebrate Kenya’s rich ethnic diversity.
Howdy howdy! Oh yes, I made the cut and got shortlisted under the New Blogger category for this years 5th Annual OLX SOMA Awards. SOMA Awards Recognizes & Rewards Brands That Use Social Media To Transform Lives and to be recognized by SOMA is like a dream come true. I’m still in awe and to be honest, it came as a surprise to me. Being nominated has just raised the bar even higher for me and motivated me to continue creating great and impactful content.
I’ve rocked this outfit a couple of times before and most of the time I got compliments like “I love your skirt” “I love your top”. For a second you might think this is a skirt and a peplum top but nope, It’s actually a vivo bodycon dress and a peplum jacket. Yass! Having pieces in my wardrobe to change up looks once in a while is quite fun and saves you a whole lot of money! Trust me. I’ve actually worn this peplum jacket differently before, you can check out this post. I love this jacket cause it gives you a professional look yet so fab. 🙂
Howdy, howdy! I had such an amazing weekend as much as I literally feel like I could punch someone in the face right now, people can be so annoying. But that aside. I’m very much appreciative of the fact that I’m here today. I spent almost my whole Saturday at Imani Children’s home in Kayole, Matopeni and on my way a lot ran through my mind. I remember even at some point texting my sister and telling her, “Thank God for the life you’re living now“. Sometimes we get so caught in our day to day activities and forget to sit back and be appreciative of what we have and how far we’ve come.
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry or whatever. I happened to have uploaded this article on Tuesday but for some weird reason it completely vanished from my website a few days later! I was like nooooooo. I remember my friend asking me the other day, have you stopped blogging? I was like no, I actually uploaded a new post then whoop it’s not there! I must have missed on saving the article then went ahead and updated my blog. 🙁 This also takes me back to yesterday. I happened to have a very successful meeting with one of my clients only for my machine to crash and the minutes taken deleted. Sema stress! Hah!
