I, together with Donata Burmester of 'AfroSchick' were recently invited for an Interview on one of Hamburg's local Internet TV Stations, 'TIDE Hamburg' as guests on the 'Burudika Show', a show that highlights the Art & Music Scene in East Africa. The show presented by 'Carol K.' shines a light on the various ongoings by Artists & Musicians from East Africa based both on the continent & in the Diaspora & we both got a chance to talk more about our experiences as female...

I miss dressing up to go out for Dinner, I miss putting on make-up to to hide my 'flaws', I miss picking out my outfit & accessories days in advance, I miss looking at the the weather forecast & praying that the weather gods play along with my outfit choice, I miss car doors & restaurant doors being held open for me, I miss the Maitre d' recognising my name (well, why wouldn't he, I made the reservations) I miss reading out dishes on the menu that I cannot even pronounce, I miss...

''Do I invest more into my business or do I save my resources just in case the current situation goes on longer?'' Many Entrepreneurs (myself included) are finding themselves 'caught between a rock & a hard place' at the moment with the current financial situation that the Pandemic has brought about. For me, it's the not knowing how long this will go on & not having like a particular 'end date' for which I can plan for. And in as much as I as a creative person like to freestyle in most...

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...

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...

''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...

Merry Christmass to you all! I hope that you are doing well doing this festive season, enjoying the break & peace with your loved ones during this special season. Just wanted to share with you this outfit that I wore to the only Christmass party that I attended this year which was held an acquintance's house. I decided to go for a very simple look with this pre-loved black Zara dress that I had thrifted back in summer & spruced it up a bit with one of my favourite neckpieces, a gift...
