Happy new year to you all. How is 2018 taking you? Mine is good so far, I am already back to work (I never left any way) and the grind is slowly picking up. Word has it that I have added some flesh after those few days of stuffing myself with everything edible. Never mind that the weight has not changed :( Let's see what the new year has in store.

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
Yipee! the rainy season is here and I hope it is going to stay longer. Mahn the heat in Nairobi is killing me! I'm I the only one? I have been finding it difficult to choose what to wear in the heat. I know there is a range of outfits, but when you work outdoors everyday you (I) run short. Here is why: dresses. skirts and shorts are not part of the equation (work rules), too much sleeveless = too much tan and covering up means boiling up. Now you see why I am so excited about the rain! I need to cover up my arms with some fancy sweatshirts, get my skin tone back and of course end the boots camp in my closet :) It has been so long since they saw the light. Continue Reading
We all agree that skinny pants have a good grip of our day to day wardrobe, yes? When it gets humid our legs need some free flow of air and this is where palazzo pants come in handy. These pants are flouncy, stylish and super comfy for a hot day. If you are wondering what palazzo pants are, they are long wide leg pants that flare from the waist. These are different from bell bottoms which only flare from the knees downwards. Continue Reading
Hello Profashionals, I hope your weekend (s) is off to a good start. Mine is a lazy one, I swear I don't feel like doing anything. I got my duvet and Netflix keeping me company, what else would I ask for in this weather. Work and the cold has been kicking my a$$ all week and it is my turn to kick back (by doing nothing). Continue Reading
I do love my red wine, but I did not know how much until I did a wardrobe clean out. The realization was that I have a fair share of outfits in the red wine color (this includes shoes!). That's how you know true love guys.To myself I promised to reduce on the same, but as the saying goes, true love cannot be denied where it exists :) Continue Reading
So I made a getaway to Samburu last weekend. One long drive but so so much worth it. As usual it was work related and our stay/assignment was at Saruni Samburu: a luxury lodge built on top of one of the many rocky hills in Kalama conservancy. This gives spectacular views from the top and allows some cool breeze through the hot Samburu air. We arrived quite late and booked into our villa. Due to the hot weather, the tents were left open with only a netting (more like a mosquito net) between the wild outside and us. I could clearly see any movements on the outside but i guess the wildlife had a better view due to the lights on our side. Perfect wild getaway. Continue Reading
Hello loves. I have been feeling so tired of late because of the travels every weekend. Not that I am complaining, but topped up with my 8 to 5 leaves me with less time for the site. I know time is created but the fact that I am always in the field with no access to my laptop or internet is also a challenge. Not to worry though because I will always have something up my sleeve to share with you. So my latest discovery is an illusion dress. Continue Reading
Hallo Profashionals, How was your Easter? Mine was an amazing experience full of fun road trips and glorious moments with friends and family. For now, allow me to take you back one week prior when I had a weekend getaway at Amboseli. Hidden in the dry Kenyan South is a luxurious safari lodge, Tawi Lodge.
A lodge built with all its facilities facing the snow capped Mt. Kilimanjaro; from the rooms to the dining area, to the bar and the swimming pool, the amazing view of the mountain lingers. Even the bathroom has a window facing the mountain! Waking up to the beautiful snowy view atop the mountain reminded me of my high school days at the foots of Mt. Kenya. Continue Reading
