Lets talk Arbour 

Hi loves, i hope you’re all great. I bet the festival season has already started to kick in, its only 5 weeks to Christmas. Why does it sound so far away now that I wrote it down?! 😁🌲☃️ 

Fun fact- I’ve never experienced snow! It’s on my bucket list though. 

So today I wanted to share a food post. This is currently my favorite restaurant in Nairobi. It was originally a home that got converted into a restaurant by the owners. 

I love their cosy outdoor picnic kinda seating, very good for large groups of people. The service is also impecable. 

I possibly cannot remember all the dishes name as this post is 10 days late!! 😅
Regardless, lots of love.

Taste of India at The Concord

Hi loves!! 

I hope you’re all doing great as we countdown to 2017. Amazing and scary at the same time how time flies right?! 🎄🎄

On this blog i wanted to showcase one of my favorite cuisine; which is Indian. I cannot emphasize enough as to how much i loveee Indian food!! 😁😊

Honestly we could not even pronounce the names of the dishes, but loosely translated the rice dish was Biryani and the other dish was naan and butter chicken. (Ps naan is a type of flat bread)

The food was amazing. Would love to know what your favorite holiday dishes are? Feel free to comment

BIRTHDAY BLUES 

Birthdays have always been special occasions in my family. My dad would go out of his way to make sure that his little girls had the best time. Our birthdays normally consisted of cake, drinks and food, and, that is a tradition that my sisters and i have carried on with 😊 

I’ve had two amazing birthdays in my adult years: one which this guy i was dating (now my ex, no names 😁)went out of his way to make sure i had a blast. This years is two.

I love people who go the extra mile, because I’m one of them myself. Im shamelessly selfless and therefore get easily hurt when i encounter selfish people. 

This year, this group of people that i spent my birthday with proved to me that genuine love does exist. It wasn’t about the gifts or venue, what hit home with me is the fact that they were more excited than i was 😂😁 

Here are a few pictures from the day. 
Ps. If you have people who stay in your life even when you have nothing to offer them, keep them!!

DAVID SHELDRICK ELEPHANT ORPHANAGE

“The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.

At the heart of the DSWT’s conservation activities is the Orphans’ Project, which has achieved world-wide acclaim through its hugely successful elephant and rhino rescue and rehabilitation program. The Orphans’ Project exists to offer hope for the future of Kenya’s threatened elephant and rhino populations as they struggle against the threat of poaching for their ivory and horn, and the loss of habitat due to human population pressures and conflict, deforestation and drought.

To date the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has successfully hand-raised over 150 infant elephants and has accomplished its long-term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in our care.”

Had a great time watching those cuties feed and play around. If you haven’t been to the orphanage do make a point. Thank me later.

The DSWT is located in the country of Kenya. The elephant Nursery is located in Nairobi National Park. Our 3 reintegration units are located in the Greater Tsavo Conservation Area at Voi, Ithumba and Umani Springs in the Kibwezi Forest.

They are open to the public for one hour every day, excluding 25th December, from 11am to Noon. During this time the orphans arrive for their midday mud bath and feeding.  Entrance to the orphanage for the visiting hour requires minimum contribution of $7 US dollars / 500 Kenya shillings per person. They also have a gift shop on site and the opportunity to foster orphans during your visit.

Lots of love

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 😀
