Societal expectations

Shot on location by Aggrey Ojiambo at Kingfishernest

Last week when the kobikihara challenge was trending, I couldn't help but ask myself so many questions about society expectations. When you are a "celebrity" I can imagine the pressure one feels to portray their lives on social media like they have it all together you know living their lives like its golden, but is it ever that serious to the point that now we take photos from the internet and claim to be our own.

My top picks from Jumia Kenya

I'm always happy to share with you guys places where you can shop for fashionable and trendy items. Well, am introducing this new segment on the blog where I will share with you items that you can easily purchase online from the comfort of your home or office and have them delivered to you. I believe most of you have heard about Jumia Kenya an online store that sells a wide range of items ranging from groceries, electronics to beauty products and do deliveries straight to you wherever you may be, what I love about Jumia is that you have an option for paying for your items in cash or mpesa once they have been delivered.

Just another hustle

Last week I traveled up country for a family function. I was so excited about going on a road trip, my shagz( village) is quite a distance from the city, Migori county to be precise. That is where my mum comes from but am a luo from Kendu Bay my dad' side which is in Homa Bay county.
I was in Migori County and  if you are my friend on Facebook am sure you saw my status update in Luo ( my mother tongue) mentioning the delicacies I intended to eat during my stay.

Kingfisher Nest, Nairobi

A few weeks ago I spent a day at Kingfisher Nest apartment hotel, even though I was just there for a day I felt like I had the full on experience of a guest who had stayed at the hotel for a month. The apartment hotel is located in the heart of Westlands off Mwanzi road and directly opposite the former Ukay center. The Kingfisher nest has 46 units comprising of two bedroom apartments fully furnished. When I entered in to the apartment I immediately fell in love with the interior decor. The furniture, curtains and the carpets are tastefully colour blocked. The unique wall arts in the living room and the bedroom makes the apartment feel so serene and chic and don't get me started on the finishing of the wardrobes and the kitchen cabinets, they are 100% well done.

No cornrows, no leave out crochet braids protective style

Happy new week beautiful people!

On Friday night I did my usual crochet braids, this time round I was trying a different method to install them. Let me tell you half through I was giving up because it was quite challenging. The method that I used is known as "Lazy girl crochet".

Memoirs of College life

Photo credits Aggrey Ojiambo

I never had the chance to enjoy college life  when I was young because my dad retired from employment and he could no longer be able to pay for my college fees so I studied in College for only 1 year then later on when I could pay my own school fees I went back to college. During that 1 year, I enrolled at the Multi media University formerly known as KCCT for one year to study mass communication. Earlier this week as I was just going through my email I came across this article I wrote to one of our local media stations KBC they were looking for fresh talent to join their media team and to apply you had to write an article about your campus and send it together with your CV. I was very ambitious back then and I did exactly that.
