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…

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….

Are We There Yet? #WorldAidsDay

When Shuga first aired in 2009, I found it to be very intriguing. The movie concentrated on a group of youths who lived a sort of fast life, had fun and enjoyed the party life. I was barely eighteen at the time, and I genuinely could not relate to anything that was going on in…

Designers To Watch: Vaishali Morjaria

    I met Vaishali a little over a year ago. I was looking for a designer to make my national costume, which I would later proceed to showcase in Vienna, Austria during the Miss Earth 2015 competition. We met through the then manager for the Miss Earth Kenya franchise and formed a rare bond…

Reminiscing On Austria

When September checks in, then so does pageant season. I know it has been long overdue, but I wanted to make this post today, on Thanksgiving Day. And, while it is not a traditional holiday here in Kenya, I feel that it should be recognized. PS: I love holidays way too much. I’ve been going…

When Tables Turn.

I talk about women and the youth a lot on my articles because I am a firm believer that these are the people who hold society together and are the keys to the successful future of our society. The presence of a huge void in mentor-ship and guidance is undoubtedly the reason why our generation…

The Bumpy Road To Success.

Growing up is probably one of the hardest things I had to do. And I’m not talking about age; I’m talking about the mastery of emotional maturity , financial maturity and learning to balance all aspects of life; conquering all the tides with grace. That’s growth. We all have dreams and visions of what we…

Quarter-Life Crisis.

I was going through my Facebook profile today and came across a post I made three years ago: “The good thing about hardship is this: Sometimes what makes people a success is not a clear vision of where they want to be. Sometimes it is the hard times, the heartbreak, the low moments aka rock…

Girls, Not All Lumps Are Cancerous!

  It’s October, or Pink October as we love to call it. It is also the breast cancer awareness month, and I feel that it would not be right that the month goes by without a word from me. So, hey! Well, since there is no easier way to talk about this, I find it…

Corporate Bulldogs

I’ve been skeptical about whether or not I should write this post. I choose to be bold about it, it might inspire someone. Who knows. A while back, I read an article shared by Mark Maina, a great blogger by the way! It was about corporate BMWs and Range Rovers. To be honest, the capacity…
