Hope you have been keeping well.

Last week I had the pleasure of gracing an event at Kiza bar and restaurant courtesy of  Hennessy. Moet Hennessy Kenya was pleased to host Mr. Benard Peillon the president of Hennessy (LVMH group) on his maiden trip to Kenya.

The event kicked off from the Nairobi Railway station where we took a 30 minutes train ride to the venue.The train ride was quite an experience, we enjoyed the beautiful sceneries of the Nairobi national park and the newly built SGR Syokimau terminal.

When we arrived at the African Heritage House we were welcomed with refreshments as we headed to the tent where the Google team would give us a brief introduction about the new app. Google's country manager Charles Murito gave a brief speech about Google and the new app.

Royal Moet Nectar treatment

Last week Friday I had the pleasure of enjoying a Royal Moet Nectar treatment thanks to Moet & Chandon.This was in regards to their new lifestyle campaign that aims at Celebrating THE NOW achievements and milestones as they happen.

Among those in attendance were a  few key lifestyle bloggers who had been nominated for the Royal Moet Nectar treatment.

One thing I love about the Royal Moet nectar is its rich fruity taste, a drink that will definitely excite your taste buds especially if you love exotic fruits like pineapple and mango, not forgetting that it has a slight hint of vanilla. Ladies, you will love it for sure.

Here are a couple of photos from the event.

Crochet Braids Super dread Angels + my first youtube video

Hey, good people!

Am happy to announce am finally on Youtube! yaaaaayy, youtube it's such an achievement for me considering that I filmed, edited and uploaded the video all by myself and to be honest it wasn't as easy as I thought. Shout out to youtube content creators, I have mad respect for you all. Editing is an art on its own and honestly, it's not for the faint hearted. It has taken me a month of filming and deleting videos and watching tutorials on how to shoot and edit videos and am proud of myself for finally getting a hint on how to go about it.

So the video was a quick crochet braid tutorial. I used 3 packets of super dread crochet braids, a packet costs kshs 350. I first had lines done and this is how they looked like.

Consistency and color blocking

"If only people understood how important it is to be consistent. Everything that has value in life is a product of consistency. Success, health, fitness, wealth, friendships, relationships, and all other aspirations are all about consistency."    - Sylvester McNutt III,consistency.
I found that quote on Instagram and I immediately took a screen shot. It really spoke to me. Truly there is success in consistency especially if you want to reach your goals. You can't start something today and a week later give up and still expect to achieve success. Most times consistency comes with its own challenges. Let me give you an example from my own experience, as a fashion blogger I work so hard on my blog hoping to attract new followers and subscribers. Yes, I do get new followers but the thing is they are not as many as I would like to have because every month I have a target for new followers and when I don't meet my target I feel like just giving up. One thing that keeps me going is the passion I have for fashion and blogging and in as much as the growth might be slow, I believe in consistency the more I keep doing what I love the more I achieve success no matter how slow the growth might be. Like I always say, forward is forward keep moving.

The plunge v-neck bodysuit

V-neck bodysuits or tops are fashion statement outfits. Its sassy and chic. I paired the plunge v-neck bodysuit with a colorful high low chiffon skirt and heel sandals. This is outfit can be worn on a weekend for a lunch date with girls,when going shopping although you would have to replace the heels with some comfy flat shoes. This look can also pass as a night look. If you want to look sexy in the club,go for this kind of outfit.
I wouldn't recommend this for a first date with your potential better half, it's too much sauce for a first date. On a first date you want to keep it pretty and chic.

Weekend dress

The weekend is finally here and its April already! Days are flying by so fast,just the other it was January and now here we are looking forward to Easter.Its all good though.

I bet by now you all know how much am into short dresses, I've worn them a couple of times here on the blog. I like wearing short dresses during fashion events or on a night out. When I saw this particular dress I saw my name written all over it, it was love at first sight. I particularly like the peplum and the animal print details. I paired the dress with nude pumps to keep the look sassy and classy.

Random Musings : Follow your soul

No one knows what you need to do more than you do. Cry when you need to. It's relieving. Laugh when you need to. It's healing. Sit alone when you need to. It's necessary. Surround yourself with strangers when you need to. It's eye opening. Living by your needs is not easy. No one said it was. But a fact that you should always remember is this: you are more worthy of being taken care of than anyone around. And I don't mean the superficial kind of care. I mean the care that your soul needs.

Crochet Braids Afro Kinky Bulk

Happy Monday beautiful peeps!

I've been on a roll with these crochet braids and am supper proud of myself. I installed these Afro kinky bulk in an hour. It was quite easy since they are thick and the texture is kinky so its so easy to knot them, I did only one knot unlike the cherish bulk which were quite slippery I had to knot them 5 times for them to stay intact.

So for this new hair style I used 3 packets of afro kinky bulk. I had normal lines done,you know those lines you had when in primary school? Yes,those ones.

Random musings : Perfect isn't the plan

I'm a go getter you know that kind of person who goes for what they want regardless of the obstacles on their way and they won't stop until they get it, but what happens when the go-getter doesn't get it?

Well, let me tell you my story.

Makeup date with Fabulous makeup by Katts

Lipstick by color pop
I always get excited every time I get a face beat,  Lord knows am not good at it at all especially on doing the eyebrows. So I decided to collaborate with my long time friend Katts, we were in college together and she was one of those ladies in our 'click 'who would take her time when getting ready. It didn't matter whether we going to class, the dining hall or going out to the club. She somehow knew it all from makeup to fashion and I wasn't surprised when she became a makeup artist. She is really good at it and she is one artist you can trust with your face.Please check out her social media pages here and here . Our makeup date was pretty exciting and you can tell from the photos below.

5 different ways to style high waist jeans

High waist jeans are my go to pants all day every day. I love how they accentuate the hips and give shape to all body types. I have done a post before on how to style high waist jeans here and today I will share with you the 5 different ways I style my high waist jeans and the first one is with a crop top. I like showing a little bit of skin especially on a sunny day and pairing them with converse shoes is a plus. You get to be super comfy and you can move around easily.

Crochet Cherish Bulk,spanish curl

A few weeks ago I posted a photo of my new hair on my Instagram page and I promised I was going to share all the details through a you tube tutorial. I did shoot the video of the whole crochet process but I had a few challenges with the editing. All the same, I will share the details here on the blog and very soon when I'm done editing the video I will for sure upload it on You tube.

I enjoy online shopping and once in a while I buy my outfits from various international online stores. One of the reasons I shop online is because I get to buy unique and affordable items. One of the online stores am currently crushing on is SheIn they have quite unique clothes which you don't have to break the bank to buy. They have quite a variety of trendy items which include:

How to Style tappered pants

Tapered pants fit comfortably at the thigh and taper narrower to the ankle. The difference between tapered pants and skinny pants, of course, is the fit. Skinny is tight and tapered are loose fitting. They  are comfortable, stylish and somehow brings out a sophisticated kind of look to the individual wearing it.

I paired my tapered pants with a cream coloured  bodysuit and I threw on a sleeveless chiffon coat with nude Sandal heels. This is an outfit I would wear to a meeting, lunch date and definitely wear it to an evening fashion event. I just love how its effortless and classy.


Happy Monday darlings!

One thing I always know for a fact is that you can never go wrong with the colour black. I like lace tops but if I were to choose between a white one and a black one, I would definitely go for the black one because its easier to style and also pairing it up is quite simple. You can either go for a bright coloured pair of pants or skirt and still look stylish.This look can perfectly pass for a day to night look as well.

Event recap : Exclusive Hennessy dinner

Last week I attended an exclusive dinner courtesy of Moet Hennessy Kenya & Viva global. The dinner was at Intercontinental Nairobi. The global brand development director of Moet Hennessy, Mr. Laurent Dominguez was our host together with Mr. Alexandre Helaine Moet Hennessy marketing manager. The dinner was well attended by top lifestyle personalities and the dining experience gave all the attendees an immersion of the rich heritage finesse and sophistication of Maison Hennessy.

Mr. Dominguez used the stages of a 4-course fine dining meal to let the personalities sip and savor the different pearls on the Hennessy crown. We were able to learn and taste the great cognacs of Maison Hennessy; the very special (V.S), Very Superior Old Pale (VSOP) and of course the ultimate Extra Old (X.O) accompanied by stories of how each name came to be.

The dinner experience was amazing and I got to learn so much about Hennessy which is one of my favorite drinks. Here are more photos from the event.
