The Right Path.

How often do you regret past decisions? Or, do you ever sit down and wish that your life took a different path? The thing about life is that we often look at what happens in other people’s lives and somehow wish that ours were just like that. We imagine what things would be like if…

Understanding Makeup! 

Choosing the right kind of makeup is always an issue subject to debate. Over time, I have had many people ask me what I use on my face, and where they can get the same. Before I settled on Black Opal, I had my fair share of confusion and dissatisfaction from many other brands. At…

Rocking The Cold Season!

The cold season is here, and there is nothing as frustrating as indecisive weather. How many times did you peep out the window, estimated how the weather will be, picked an outfit, and ended up suffering the whole day? Several, right? Me too. The thing about cold weather is that you just never know! What…

Being Woman.

The other day, I was talking to one of my friends about random things, and we started discussing modern day “dating” and how hard it really is being a woman. Have you ever had someone approach you and say that they have seen how you operate and feel that you are a perfect fit for…

Where Love Fails, Respect Prevails.

With just a few hours to the start of a brand new month, one with new chapters for most and a potential fresh start for some, I touch on the most important topic of all; RESPECT. Respect : “a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements” I…

Matters Education

As a keen observer of current affairs, I find it extremely hard to ignore situations wherein human rights are violated and thrown out the window. Over the past few months, I have noted with great concern the rising cases of school negligence when it comes to the health of the students. Remember the lady from…

The Company You Keep.

“Being a loner may seem like a tough choice to make, it may even sound a little crazy. But, it is better to walk alone, than to stand in the company of mediocrity.”

What’s Passed Is Past.

Have you ever sat down to think about your past and some of the things you have been through; and just say, “Thank God I don’t look a thing like what I have been through”? I do. Each and every single person on this planet has a story. And in the same way, each person’s…

First, Take Care Of Yourself.

When you think about it, is your glass half full or half empty? Or is it not even a glass, and what you have in your hand is a cup? I don’t know, I’m just trying to bring perspective into this. You see, over time, depending on how you were raised or basically who you…

Era Of The Crazies

There exists a very thin line between passion and obsession. Recently, I stumbled upon a television series by Tyler Perry, If Loving You Is Wrong; and while there are many other things to point out from this particular show, some that make me extremely uncomfortable with the whole show, there is one particular character that…

First Time Is A Charm!

  I have been benching this article for a while now, mostly because I am not the biggest fan of “full disclosure”, but oh well. In my twenty four years of living, my best kept secret has been quite simple: I had never been to Mombasa, Kenya, up until the 17th Day of April 2017….

Another Win For The Ego.

Have you ever had one of those personal sessions where you analyse past desicions and actions, and wonder exactly why you chose to go through with them? Like why you are no longer friends with someone? Or why you love to talk ill of your exes, despite having had some pretty bright days together? Or…

The Art Of Contentment.

A few days ago, I wrote an article touching on depression, anxiety and other forms of mental unrest, wherein I shared my thoughts on what really triggers us to emotional and mental instability. The most obvious one being COMPARISON. In a world where social media dominates every single sector, it would be a lie for…

I Choose Happiness :)

  When we were younger, we were carefree; with absolutely no responsibilities besides performing well in school. A tiresome day was as a result of playing outside all day; or from being in school learning and playing. Basically, living. Enjoying ourselves. But we grow up; excited that we are finally eighteen and young adults; imagining that…

Why We Love Cover-ups!

In a world ridden with objectification and strict traditions, we are often looking for new ways to adapt and stand out. For many women, it is difficult to wear some particular items as they seem either too revealing or are simply hard to pair up. Some of the reasons for this include religious beliefs, culture…

Strive To Be Compassionate.

I was at work yesterday and I decided to have one of those YouTube playlists playing in the background as I went about my business. Now, I am a true 90’s music fan so naturally that’s what I set it to. Somewhere in between I heard a very familiar song, “What Would You Do‘ by…

Women: The Pillars of Society!

One of the greatest joys in life is to feel powerful; needed, and appreciated. Perhaps not to some, but definitely to most. Every so often I write and talk about how women impact society and carry with them the future of the human race. This is without a doubt one of the greatest gifts granted…

Beauty Tips: Facial Care

Every woman’s dream would be to have a smooth, pure face; the type that cosmetic companies seek for their advertisements. However, more often than not, many women find themselves feeling a little insecure about their facial skin; something that prompts many to seek help from as far and wide as they possibly can. However, it is…

Stay Woke!

2017 started on a high note; with so much activity that it has been nearly two months since and I have not made any posts here. However, I hope you’re having a fruitful time. As we all know, this is the year when we go to the polls as Kenyans, a situation that inevitably brings…

  Our Muslim sisters have been rocking them since time immemorial, and we think that Kimonos are the latest fashion sensation that every fashion enthusiast should own. It is very evident that adding a kimono to your outfit raises your outfit to a classy, stylish and elegant level. While there is no specific way of…

Rock That Denim!

Denim is undoubtedly the most worn material globally. Everybody loves denim! On the previous post, we predicted that neutrals and nude colors are bound to rule this year. However, while that is true, we feel that there is lots of room for denim to dominate this year too; like it has in all other years….
