The Victoria’s Secret 2018 Show

Another year, another Victoria’s Secret fashion show, and I am here for it!! I cannot remember a time when I was not so obsessed with this show. For most models across the globe, being a Victoria’s Secret Angel is the ultimate goal; a dream. A few weeks back, I wrote Callbacks and Confirmations , happy…

Georgian Delight

Georgia is a country in the border of Eastern Europe and Western Asia. It lies bordered by the Black Sea on the left, Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Turkey. Georgia is predominantly Christian, and it’s history dates back to as far as the fourth century. I was travelling with a friend of mine called Karen for…

A Trip To Bali

Towards the end of last month, I knew I had leave coming up in October, but I was not quite sure where I wanted to go. Nairobi was not quite an option seeing as I had already gone home three times since moving to Doha. I wanted something different. I thought of Bali, Indonesia. It…

It’s Pageant Season!

If anyone was to ask me now what i think about pageants, in one sentence I would say, “Pageants build character“. Most people would most likely beg to differ, but i have my reasons and insights. Having actively participated in pageants for the past five years, I could say a lot about it. I’ve had…

Beyond The Horizon.

You’ve been there before. You’ve thought about it countless times. You’ve done your research. You weighed in on the pros and cons. But you’re still here; undecided. Its human nature. You know how life has a way of unleashing surprises on you? Just when you think you have seen it all, something new comes along….

The Zig Zag Principle

We may be different people, given that no human being is like the other; but we all share a common goal: success. Success means different things to different people; some feel that having lots of wealth is being successful, some that having peace of mind is success, some that small but meaningful steps in the…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Body Shaming Is A Shame!

Today, I woke up to an article by startupskenya.co.ke appreciating my work on my blog and I just want to say thank you for reading, and for the undying support. I was scrolling down my news feed on Facebook and I came across a picture of an old friend from high school by a page…

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…

Thoughts Build Character

Every so often we are told to be careful what we choose to focus on. For what we set our minds on, occupy it and create our future. That what we think, we become. Thoughts are a powerful part of everyday life; there isn’t a time in our lives when we are not thinking. But…

The Power Of The Tongue: Part I

The tongue is a powerful tool. A boneless part of the body, but one with great power: power to kill, power to destroy, power to break; power! We are often told to be mindful of what we say; to choose our words wisely, and to hold our tongues if we have nothing good to say….

You Can Do It!

It’s exam period, and my thoughts drift to the young girls that prefer shortcuts to personal achievements; living on the fast lane to working their way to success. A lot of young girls feel pressured to live up to their friends’ lifestyles, often comparing themselves with the elite and trying to get to the same…

Nothing But Faith.

  I used to think that you could simply write out how you want to spend your life; and with whom you wanna spend it with. I thought it was all about planning, and proper discipline; setting your priorities right. I was right, to an extent. But I realized that you can not really plan…

The Price.

In my life, during my interactions with people and without needlessly stating the obvious, I have come to understand that success is one of those things that we all desire in life. Whether you’re born poor, born rich, born physically fit or otherwise, you want to be successful. You want for people to remember you…
