Hi loves, how are you all doing? So yesterday my country (Kenya 🇰🇪 ) celebrated independence day. (Precisely 53 years since we got liberated from British rule). I really wasn’t up to much celebrating as the weather was horrible, it rained for most parts of the day.
For the Kenyan’s in the diaspora I’d love to know what you guys we’re up to on Jamuhuri day? 😀
Today i wanted to do a post on something that I’m passionate about,but have never had the time to pursue;Interior Designing.Frankly one of the reasons why I haven’t pursued it is because it’s not such a lucrative business in my country, further more there aren’t any reputable institutions offering it as a course. For me to able to practice I’d have to invest and decor my own home and that’s too costly for a University student 😅😅
For now, I’ll stick to admiring stuff online. Here are some of my favorite picks from Pinterest.
As old as Time itself, and acknowledged as the very Cradle of Humankind, the great continent of Africa has untold treasures to reveal to those who take the time to come on a journey of discovery. From the ancient temples, pyramids and tombs of Egypt, to adventurous safaris in Kenya, and the stunning natural wonders and wildlife of Uganda, Botswana and Namiba-these are the 5 that have me sick with wanderlust -see places to include in your itinerary.
1. Abu Simbel-Egypt
2. Mount Kilimanjaro
3.Victoria falls on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border
4.Wildebeest Migration, Maasai Mara and Serengeti National Parks – Kenya & Tanzania
I had the pleasure of attending one of the most elegant events in Nairobi.The three-year anniversary for Couture Africa which was an invites only event held at Sarabi Pool & Supper Club,Sankara Nairobi , with the dress code being white and red.Sensational is the word I can use to sum up this event.

It has an instagram following of 20.5k, which is quite impressive. The founder and CEO is the beautiful Olive Gachara who also doubles as the publisher & Editor- in Chief (Pictured below). She has been in the fashion,corporate and publishing industries for 10 years and is focusing on making the most of every passing moment.

Thank you Couture Africa for an amazing experience. Looking forward to attending more of your events.
Hi loves, so today I’m here to EDUCATE!! I recently invested in some Roshe run’s and I love them to bits, they are chick and very comfortable. Most people however don’t know the history behind these shoes, let alone how the word is pronounced lol The guy i bought them from even pronounced it wrong ( he called them Rosh-ee), I’m not bashing anyone because it’s a culture amongst a lot of Kenyans to follow trends blindly. Todays post is to prevent further embarrassment to those who were uncknowledgeable and also show my top 5 Roshe Run picks.
The designer behind these shoes is a guy by the name Dylan Raasch, who actually started the design process back in 2010. He was tasked with bringing ideas for the Nike Sportswear Fall 11. Dylan drew his inspiration from the concept of Zen as he practiced mediation. He claims that the name and inspiration came directly from the word “ROSHI”, which is a title given to a Zen master. To him, nothing epitomized simplicity better than a Zen master. It was for legal reasons that the “I” was changed to an “e”, but the pronunciation remained the same.
So there you have it guys, hope someone learnt something new today. 😀 Now for my top 5 Roshe picks.
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.
