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
Good morning pro-fashionals,
If you have been following me on social media, you must know that I recently got engaged :) I still can’t calm down and would love to flood your timelines with more photos of the same, but I guess you do need a break huh? So let us get back to business. How about a business lunch meeting? Where would you go if asked to host one? Continue Reading
What motivates you? This is almost a must ask question for interviewers. Your answer to this question is a great determinant to you clinching the job. What they really want to know is your work drive. What really motivates you to wake up early every morning or work late at night? What makes you forego a night out with your friends and opt to work? Just before you say money, think twice. Well, we all work for a living but still hold your tongue. 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
Hallo Profashionals! The off shoulder trend has been going on for so long and it looks like it is here to stay. I decided to join the band wagon. When my colleague brought this dress for me try on, I knew I was definitely going to take it home. I loved it. One reason I got this dress is because I always have trouble picking something to wear for a date night. I guess all you ladies can relate. You know something that is not too much but not too simple either. Something that says I got this just right instead of I tried too much! You feel me, yes? Continue Reading
Happy new month pro-fashionals!
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 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
No matter how much you love your job, frustrations are bound to happen. Sometimes it becomes too challenging or hard that you feel like your head is going to burst. These are the days you learn the importance of making friends at work. Having someone who understands (or can console you about) your crazy boss Continue Reading
