The weather in Nairobi though! One day its sunny then the other is literally 10-degrees. In this weather, shooting for the blog has become quite a challenge. I’m always crossing fingers that it doesn’t rain , we can work with the gloomy weather at least but we gotta do what we gotta do! :)
We all have this one staple wardrobe piece that we keep somewhere in our closets because for one reason or another we have nothing to pair it up with or rather we have made ourselves believe so. Well, those days are over! It’s interesting how a simple crop top changed my entire look here.
Thank the heavens for whoever invented the go-pro camera! Few are the times you get to capture moments that seemed impossible. We rose quite early on this day and headed to Kendwa Beach in Zanzibar to kick off our vacay with some activities we had booked in with ZP Ocean Sports. The sandy beaches at Kendwa are as white as white can get! Damn, you can barely look at the sand without shades on! It was pretty hot and humid as well but that didn’t matter cause everyone was having so much fun.
Any bold prints will always add some life in your everyday look and light up a room at any given point. I remember the first time I saw this fabric I was a little bit shy about it and felt the pink prints were way too bold and bright plus I had convinced myself pink wasn’t a color I’d consider in a fabric but when I tried on a sample skirt the tailor had sewn I was happy to carry it home with me!
I’ve been listening to this song for the last few days on replay up to now and can’t get enough of it! Anyway, who else is excited that it’s finally Friday, I mean the weekend is already here thus the only time we have to wear our cute little sleeve dresses? It’s been super chilly lately and I’m crossing my fingers for a warmer weekend.
One thing I love about working in an advertising agency is the fact that you are not limited on what to wear, but if you are client facing, you will want to look presentable at all times especially during meetings, pitching etc. Your go to outfit for this should always be subtle, not too serious but must evoke professionalism. This look happens to be one of my current favorites and not to forget that I’ve been living in this pants lately.
How do I begin describing this piece of heaven? Enashipai is surely the most peaceful, gorgeous, romantic, breathtakingly beautiful place I have been to, so far in the past few months. From the perfectly manicured gardens to the architecture and the views of the lake. I mean this place just leaves you in awe and totally speechless! I just can’t gush enough about the resort. This reminds me of a quote I once read by Ezra Pound, which goes, “A real building is one which the eye can light and stay lit”.
Happy Hump Day! In-case you haven’t read my previous post about Rock-House, be sure to find out more about the place here cause your swimming experience is about to change from normal pool diving to jumping off rock-cliffs without necessarily having to travel for miles for a different experience. Now shifting gears, we all have that one piece we feel can’t go with anything cause you bought it at impulse, received as a gift or other various reasons. This box top pictured below happens to be one of those items I have been keeping for a while now. I can’t quite remember what actually drew me to buying it but I guess it was the embellishments that are right over the shoulders or the color mainly because I don’t have as many greys in my wardrobe.
The last couple months have been rather hectic but quite fulfilling. From developing my blog, to scheduling photo-shoots, getting busier at work, just to name a few. Sometimes there is so much pressure around you and you even consider giving up but challenges are meant to be there, right? I believe it always starts with taking the small steps. They always get you closer to your dream. Whether it’s in your business, at work, exploring your talents, following your passion, your studies, etc remember to always take that step no matter how big or small. You never know what the future holds for you.
Anyone who has been around me this year clearly knows that I’ve been really into Ankara lately. I’m obsessed with all things Ankara be it clutch bags, necklaces, bangles, earrings etc. I sort of have an Ankara fever, believe me! But, what better way can we embrace our diverse and rich African culture?
