Life is short, life is precious, live it, love it, laugh it out. You never know, one day you could be healthy and the next you are suffering from a terminal disease. Continue Reading
Since I was a kid I have never really fancied long skirts and dresses, until bucket skirts, self discovery and awareness happened. Oh, the fights I have had with one Mrs Njiraini!!! You know how the typical African parent would buy you a skirt long enough to take you through three years of growing up? Continue Reading

Happy new month! How is your holiday? It has been long since our last meeting here. There has been too much going on in my head and I am ready to pin it down for you guys. It was more of a self doubting moment but I am back with a bang, like I never left (not that I consider that break a leave). So sit down, pour yourself a glass of wine and let us do this together. For starters, I have stayed away from the print on print trend, why? Continue Reading
How’s work?” My friend who is on leave asked.
I said “I do not know, I ain’t there, but my body is not complaining.”
“My mind is having fun, on holiday somewhere. As for my body and work, I cannot talk much about them.” Continue Reading
Hello good people,
I am slowly falling in love with African prints, something I never thought I would say. Do not get me twisted I do love Africa and all its beauty, but a few years back this print was simply a traditional/cultural piece that was worn in specific practices. Kudos to all designers whose creativity has brought this new love into the modern fashion. Live Love African :)
For the love of the print, I am serving this piece that I got from Maasai Market for only 1000 Kenya shillings. Continue Reading

I am still on the color wagon and I think I might be setting a trend soon. I never really thought I would be wearing some of these colors but look at how bold we are getting. Thanks to a friend who has been busy cleansing their wardrobe, mine has been getting more and more on fleek. Today we are serving pink. Continue Reading
I have been looking for a wide legged jumpsuit in a bright color for a while now. It is quite difficult to get something that totally fits my body size and shape, so I decided to draft a design and as usual my good designer friend Daisy made it realistic. My color choice, yellow! You see, I am growing out of my dark ensembles every day. Continue Reading
Gone are the days when Ankara was reserved for the weekend occasions and traditional events. This African print, as it is popularly known, has come of age and slowly found its way from the church and weddings to the office and modern day wear. Boring traditional materials are a thing of the past too, as designers are working hard to incorporate the modern day style choices. Continue Reading
Hello good people. I would ask how your January was, but can we just move on (sigh). Before we do can I just talk about this lush green place one last time (and several other times to follow)? I know....in my defense I will quote Shakespeare "how lush and lusty does it look! so green!" Just look at it peeps, so green and in this weather!? I say this place deserves some drooling and lusting over. Okay save the lusting for this lime green dress by Wambui Mukenyi. Continue Reading
