LET US HONOUR OUR YOUTH

Let us honor the youth of our seeds, 

Let us honor the fruits of our youth;

Let us honor our youth through
 

        Spotlighting their presence, 

        Spotlighting their participation, 

       Spotlighting their achievements,

Let us honor our youth through 

            song

            Worship, 

             praise, 

            award, 

            ceremony,

            And love;

Let us honor ourselves through
Honoring our young;

Let us nourish the youth of our seeds; 

Let us nourish their tiny blossoms and 

Ripening fruits to sound maturity, 

That we may see them shine for us
 

           And themselves.

THAILAND 🇹🇭 

Bangkok welcomes more visitors than any other city in the world and it doesn’t take long to realise why. It is also know as the City of Angels or the Venice of the East.

This city is vibrant and full of life. Some of the people themselves are like walking pieces of art with their brightly colored hair. Such a beautiful sight to behold. 

It thrills with energy, and the sightseeing, shopping, and eating possibilities are so vast that you’ll have little time to rest. When you do find a moment, though, you can pamper yourself at spas, skyline-view bars, luxurious hotels, and excellent restaurants.
WHEN TO GO 

From late October to late February, when Bangkok is at its coolest (85°F) and driest, is the best time to visit. By April the humidity and heat create a sticky stew that lasts until the rains begin in late June.


How cool is this open bar?!

MY SKINCARE MUST HAVES

Growing up i always had a hard time finding products that suited my skin type. I always had to battle pimples and blackheads ; trust me, it wasn’t fun. Thank God that we live in the age of enlightenment and i’m now pimple free!!!

A good skin care routine isn’t just about looking good for the day. It’s also about setting yourself up for beautiful and healthy skin for life. Not even the devil can make me skip my skin care routine or tempt me into sleeping with a face full of makeup on. 😀 😀

The first step in formulating your individual skin care routine is to identify what kind of skin you have. Is it dry or oily, light or dark, wrinkled or smooth, or somewhere in between? Ingredients in each skin care product should be tailored to meet the needs of your particular skin type. There are three basic skin types:

  • Dry
  • Oily
  • Combination/normal

Personally i have combination skin (which i hear is a good thing?) 🙂

1
I scrub my face once in two weeks  using the PROX Olay cleansing brush which also comes with an exfoliating cleanser.  I then apply the Luron  Aloe Vera Gel . My skin has improved greatly because of scrubing. 

 

4

I use this PS Glow moisturiser for cold days as it tends to feel bulky on the face. Its very good for the cold season though as it adds an extra layer of protection to the skin.

.

2
a. I  use the  Nivea purifying face wash to remove  makeup and dirt, rinse off my face with cold water then apply the Nivea toner on my face using the CottonEve pads.  b. I use the PS moisturising skin oil on my face for daytime. Its very light and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth. 

 

I’d love to hear about your skincare routine and products that have worked for you. Drop a comment below 🙂

BOMBER SEASON !!

No matter if your style is preppy, sporty, dressy, or anywhere in between, a bomber will keep your look warm and cool. Its the one to own this season-personaly i’m not gaga about trends– but the bomber jacket is versatile and works with every colour to suit your own style. The beauty of it is that its so easy to wear.  Still not convinced? let the pictures do that for you 😀

Sunny Days

Hey loves I hope you’re all having a kick ass week. I found myself reminiscing of the sunny days when I didn’t have to drape myself in a scarf and jacket like  an Eskimo. I’m not too fond of the cold (Can’t imagine myself surviving a winter if I ever have to someday). With that said I decided to share one of my best memories of the sunny days, which involves food of course! 😀

My sisters and I had lunch at News Cafe which is a contemporary cafe/bar chain with an upbeat vibe and an amazing ambiance.

Enjoy the post. xoxoxo

This is  a section of the indoor dinning when it’s all lit up at night. Looks quite romantic if I must say. 😉

The waitress who served us was quick and surprisingly had a smile the whole time she catered to us, which is quite rare with most service people in Nairobi.

Shortly after our food arrived. I had their barbeque wings, my younger sister had shrimps and the other had chicken breast stuffed with cheese. The food was mouth-watering and portions were fairly on point as you can all see.

On our way out, I took this shot of the front seating area which is more of a lounge for the internet and coffee lovers. It blew my mind.

OF JAPANESE CUISINE AND LAUGHTER

Just the other day my epicurean self was looking for a new joint to try in town (i tend to try a new restaurant on a monthly basis, if the schedule and time allows). Growing up in the coastal shores of  Dar Es Salaam and the quaint little town of Mombasa, i was from an early age exposed to an array of Swahili and Arab infused dishes which have come to be the backbone of my foodie adventures.

Here’s a sneak peak of how my friends and i spent a lovely evening at the Ginza restaurant at Galana Rd.

Cheers xoxo
