Did you know that FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) is unfortunately still deeply rooted in some cultures & is being practised by communities not only in the developing countries but also in the developed world. Migration of people all around the globe means that most migrants even as they try to adapt to their new homes tend to hold on to some of their cultures & traditions. FGM is unfortunatley one of such traditions that is still being practised even by the younger generation. I was...

It has been raining quite a lot in the last few weeks so waterproof shoes have definately been a requirement. I've had these 'Timberland inspired' boots for over 4 years & they always come to my rescue when it's cold & rainy. When i bought them they were a light shade of brown in colour which was quite difficult to maintain seeing that they are worn when the ground isn't exactly dry. So, I dyed them to the darker shade that they are now & this has been quite practical. I like the...

Sometimes we read too much into words or statements made by people without giving them a chance to explain themselves. This might end up damaging relationships that have taken years to build & really hurt the people that we love. This cute sweater is the perfect reminder that things aren't always what they look like (just imagine me as a Gangster Rapper)!

The 'Freilichtmuseum am Kiekeberg' is quite an interesting place to visit, with over 40 historical buildings which include farmhouses, Barns & workshops which are built in the same way as those between 1600 to the 1950's. There are several events that are held at the Museum & on this day, there was a big 'Tractor Show' where several Tractors were on display. Am not such a big fan of machines & locomotives but Hubby & my son were in heaven to see all the tractors. The museum is...

For any Ankara/African wax print lover, this shop is the true defination of Fabric heaven. Situated on Fuhlsbüttler straße 460 here in Hamburg is a charming little Fabric shop filled with the most amazing Ankara fabrics which are either made in Africa or from the Vlisco brand in Holland. The Fabrics are of high quality & is the reason why i often buy my fabrics from there. The lovely couple that owns the shop are always very helpful for first-time visitors on which print to choose or how...

This was my second time attending the annual 'Affordable Art Fair' in Hamburg & i quite enjoyed the experience this time, mainly because we didn't go with the Kids, so we had ample time to walk slowly through the gallery & take in the beauty of each and every piece of Art. Over 75 national & international galleries participated in the exhibition which offers the public a chance to not only view the wonderful artworks but also buy them with a price ceiling of 7,500 Euros. It was...

The Gar Gar Foundation is the brainchild of the reigning Miss Kenya Germany, Fatma Hanke. Together with other young professionals based all over the world, the Foundation's purpose is to raise awareness about female circumcision which believe me is still being practised by several communities in Kenya & in Africa as a whole. We attended a Charity Event orgarnised by Fatma Hanke that took place at the Martin Luther Church here in Hamburg where we not only had some tasty foods, got to...

This is my type of outfit on any cold day, a chunky knit roll neck sweater to keep me warm, a pair of printed culottes that is comfy but also stylish, a flat pair of shoes & a nude clutch bag to pull the whole outfit together. A simple outfit that you can put together quickly when you need to look presentable but don't have time to fuss with too many details. I kept my accessories to a minimum with just my usual watch & mirrored sunglasses.

There's something formal about Blazers that has a way of pulling together an outfit which makes it a must-have in any woman's wardrobe. And an Ankara Blazer is even better because it gives an outfit that serious look without being too plain or boring. This would be the perfect work outfit for anyone working in a creative field, an event, casual dinner, church or to a party.
