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?
Since I discovered Nakshi Nouba, my endless struggles to get a good matte lipstick we’re over. I’m a sucker for their matte lippies mainly because they last the whole day. To say the least, I think i’m quite lazy when it comes to re-applying lipstick after it’s shed off from maybe eating a whole chicken leg, or even just from drinking coffee.
Don’t let the picture lie to you, I was so freaked out!! Anyway, traveling out of Nairobi over the weekend always happens to be a good plan for me especially with all the pressure from work which has progressed to another level lately. Sigh! I’d take a road trip any-day to clear my head a bit, breathe fresh air and obviously get away from Nairobi’s traffic!! There is nothing as relieving as being on a no traffic zone.
When I first visited the Rock House Guest home, the first thing that blew me away was the serenity and quiet of the place. It’s one of the most magical places I have been to so far in Kenya that you can actually call home second to your home. It’s located in the suburbs of Hardy-Karen in a peaceful and less populated neighborhood. For those who love a little privacy, I think this is quite the ideal place for you.
