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!
When I began blogging, I promised myself to incorporate African prints in my outfits as much as possible and this is turning out really well. This cape jacket is definitely everything! It’ll for obvious reason not curb you from the cold but it will for sure make a statement and you’ll get all the compliments in this world. Who doesn’t love compliments? At least I do as much as sometimes I find myself shying away. Weird!
I’m so full of energy-ish this Monday. I had such an amazing weekend catching up with one of my closest friends. We had dinner at this amazing restaurant in The Westagate Mall called Tapas Ceviche. I had always wanted to visit the restaurant because I knew they serve one of the best Spanish cuisines and oh boy wasn’t it delicious! I’m definitely looking forward to going back for their Taco Tuesdays and happy hour! 😛
Saying Yes to these prints!! 🙂 I’m honestly not the type of person who will go playing around with prints. I find it a lil too much and I always shy away from wearing prints most of the time. I usually like something very subtle, easy to style, easy on the eyes but trust me, I went crazy for this look! I’m definitely considering to incorporate more prints into my wardrobe this year (hopefully).
Howdy howdy! I had missed sitting at my corner and writing posts for my blog. It’s so interesting how blogging just makes me so happy and completely makes me appreciate life more. It gives me peace of mind. The last couple of weeks have been pretty rough AF, from fighting all this emotions, pressure from all corners, overthinking. I’ve been a ball of tears but such is life and I thank God for the people in my life that made it bearable 🙂
Shifting gears now. Today I’m LIVING for this outfit. I’m living for this pair of distressed denim. Total slayage from head to toe boo. 😉
Guess who is married now? Not me, obviously, but my best-friend did! As a friend, and watching her plan her wedding, flip out on us (oh lord! haha), sometimes even cry, my whole perception of wedding planning being a bed of roses definitely went out of the window. However, It is pretty exciting especially when you’re fitting the wedding dress, closing on the cake vendor (cause obviously the Cake is the business), but when it starts getting to you and you spend months trying to close on a venue, looking for a good photographer and some vendors almost flaking on you, it stops being pretty.
