'Instincts' is said to be the way people or animals naturally react or behave, without having to think or learn about it. This basically means that it has a lot to do with listening to your inner gut feeling, & then acting upon it. I was recently invited to a friend's Birthday Party whose theme was 'the Animal Print'. This was my first 'official' gathering with people outside of my immediate family & boy was I excited. My 'Animal Print' outfit which I had planned almost a year ago (the...

Why are you all over sudden acting so serious? How come you nowadays don't have time for us? How come we don't see much of you around here? Who's that person taking you away from us? What's with the new look, different hair & make up? What's with the new look? Are you sure you are ok? I mean you said that you are ok but you sound different? How come you don't communicate with us as you used to? What's going on with you that you are not telling us? Why are you always smiling? What are you...

So, a little update on my '52 books a year' reading goal...16 down, 36 to go. And what a variety of books that I have been able to read (listen to) in the last 2 months. Romance galore courtesy of 'Talia Hibbert' in her 3-book series (the final one is coming out soon & I can't wait to listen to it too). Biographies which are not really my thing, but 'Steve Jobs' & 'Candice Brathwaite' have succeeded in changing my mind. A subtle reminder that Racism was & is still ongoing in our...

A lot has changed in the recent times & in as much as I am a 'preacher of flexibility' (read my previous post), the current travel restrictions are slowly getting on my nerves. I don't know about you but I kind of feel cheated out of my '2020 Travel Plans'. I feel like I haven't gone anywhere this year (even when this post clearly tells another story). So, to try to get myself out of this 'Travel-rut' that I am in, let me take a nostalgic memory trip to 'Lübeck', a small & charming...

One minute you have everything under control, 'Everything' (well, almost everything) is going as planned & then suddenly, ''Whoosh'', just like that it all changes. And of course, if there's anything that 2020 has tried to teach us, it's that even the 'best laid out plans' also fail. The best that we can do is to try to be flexible in how we respond to such sudden changes. I know, easier said than done. This is me & all my 4 emotions that I experience every single day of my life as an...

I remember when we were advised/requested to stay home at the beginning of the Pandemic so as to contain the spread the disease, I promised myself that if the situation ever improved, I would spend all the free time I had outside. So when the opportunity arose, trust me I went all out & took a short trip to 'Marschacht', a charming little area on the shores of the Alster River & had a beautiful day there. I took a walk along the river bank, had something to eat & simply enjoyed the...

''Oooops, I did it again...' I added another year to my age. Am greatful for another year, for health (in a very big way this year), for family, loved ones, am just greatful. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me!

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...

I was recently invited to a party by a friend (actually a lady that I work for who has since become a friend). I really wanted to wear something handmade & even had an idea in my head of a dress with some African print & fringes to make it fun. It was a house party & there would be some 'Swing & Jazz' music, so I thought that 'Fringe' would make a perfect addition to my outfit because of it's movement & flirt-ability (does that word even make sense)! There's this dress that...

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...
