Have you ever read a book & felt as if you were watching a film? Yes, that's the feeling that I got when reading 'The Woman in the Window' by A.J. Finn. Am not such a big fan of thriller based books but since I got back to 'Audible', I've been pushing myself to try out new genres & this book did not disappoint me at all. It's full of twists, turns & suspence that one expects from a psychological thriller. Narrated by Anna Fox, a former child psychologist living in a big house in...

Someone recently labeled the current happenings in regards to the protests against Police Brutality & sheer Racism that has been taking place all over the world as a 'Black Lives Matter' moment'. A white Fashion & Lifestyle blogger who I follow & whose content I actually like. She then went ahead & corrected her statement & called it a 'Movement' instead of a 'Moment'. But you know what, the damage was already done because her viewing it as a 'passing thing' is exactly how...

Life can be really funny sometimes, I mean, who had ever thought that in 2020, every single thing in the whole wide world would come to a standstill. Absolutely nothing is like it used to be, many have experienced loss in unimaginable ways, but in a weird way, life still exists & is just going on (same but somehow different). I pray that you & your loved ones are well. Am doing fine, on a life rollercoaster & simply going with the ride, enjoying what I can & screaming out when I...

A love story between 2 Kenyan girls in a society that does not recognise same sex relationship is what this film is all about. 'Rafiki' means 'Friends' in Swahili & that's exactly how the relationship between the 2 starts. This is the first Kenyan film to ever be screened at the 'Cannes Film Festival', a film that was banned in it's own country of origin (the ban was lifted for 7 days to allow the public to watch the film after it created waves in Cannes). 'Rafiki' was one of the many films...

If you are into movies like I am then am sure that you have watched a few where the character finds himself entering some sort of flying object & being transferred into a parallel world that he never knew existed. And that's exactly how I felt when I attended the recently ended 'Basel World 2018', an Exhibition for the Watches & Jewelry industry that takes place every year in Spring. Manufacturers of Watches, Jewelry & precious stones take this opportunity to introduce their new...

If only my work week would start on such a high note every time. I won the 'Fashion Designer of the Year 2017' award at the African Women in Europe Award Ceremony that took place in Berlin on Saturday. I am still on 'Cloud 9' & so so grateful to God & to everyone who in one way or another have been with me on this amazing journey. This award is not only mine but for us all. Thank you all so much.

Fun facts about the Parliament: The open & inviting architecture has vast glazed facades which enable visitors to look over the shoulders of Members of Parliament at work in their offices. It's exterior constructed between 1884 & 1894 by the architect Paul Wallot, has remained largely unchanged. It is energy efficient in several ways such as, the cone-shaped funnel that extends from the cupola of the building into the plenary chamber reflects glare-free daylight into the chamber through...

Do you have a favourite designer whom you stalk & whose designs have always been on your wishlist? Well, I do, quite many of them & of course they are all African Designers. One of them is 'Maxhosa' by 'Laduma' who is an amazing South African Designer whose pieces I wish would grace my wardrobe. But of course, that would cost me a fortune so I decided to start by getting a pair of socks which are super cute. Combined with my jelly shoes ('sandak' as we call them in Kenya), this turned...
