'Remain in Light' is originally an album by the American Rock Band 'Talking Heads' which has been covered by 'Angélique Kidjo'. I had the opportunity to sample a bit of the amazing tunes at her live performance in the Elbphilarmonie in Hamburg. In her own words, 'it's not cultural appropriation but cultural diversification' as she channels the original beats in her own way by using Afrobeat & a choir to transform the fearful texture of the songs into a soulful warmth. She additionally...

If there's a dress that should be hanging in every woman's wardrobe, then it should the 'Slip dress'. Actually, this dress hangs already in most women's wardrobes but is mainly worn as an undergarment or in some cases as a 'Negligée'. One of the many reasons why I own several slip dresses, as evident here, is because it can styled in several ways. How you style it depends on which look you are going for (casual or elegant) & also where you are going to (work or out for drinks with friends).

In our everyday lives we encounter constant self-doubt before we embark on & also during any journey or experience. And such journeys include entrepreneurship where you are forced to second-guess every single decision that you make.

This blog title doesn't really make sense at first does it...But let me try & explain it, October is here, am in an 'all black everything' outfit & currently at a happy place in my life.

I can count the number of 'pink' clothing pieces that I own & they are probably less than 5. That's quite surprisingly few for someone who loves bright colors like I do. This dress was a summer thrift find that was slightly too fitted around my bust that I 'adjusted' with a little ingenuity. I usually pair it with a white t-shirt underneath for a casual daytime look but on this evening, I decided to rock it on it's own for 'Date night'.

It was an amazing opportunity to be one of the designers who dressed the beautiful contestants of the Miss Kenya-Germany 2018 that was held last weekend in Frankfurt.

The sun is shining, it's getting warmer, am getting darker by the day & have no interest at all in wearing tight-fitted jeans. Mom jeans, boyfriend jeans & straight leg jeans are my thing at the moment, combined with summery tops & accessories & I am ready for this 'early summer'.
