'If at first you dont succeed, dust yourself off & try again, you can dust it off & try again' The quote isn't from me but from a song from the late 'Aaliyah' that I have been singing most of my adult life but failed to apply to my life when needed. I mean, how many times has life dealt you a wrong hand & you simply decided to give up on whatever it was that wasn't working, relationship, job, business...? Am guilty as charged & even though there are some instances when that...

Today is Valentine's Day (Yeeeeaaaah), & a very special day for a hopeless romantic like me. Who else wears red religiously on Valentines Day, or at least tries to? Well, I am guilty as charged, no 14th of February since I can remember has ever gone by without me putting on something red & I have enough eveidence to support that claim, here, here, here & here & here :-). And even when the weather is sometimes so tricky, that's where red accessories come in, like this amazing red...

Uneven grounds just like uneven hemlines must be cleverly tackled. Pieces of clothing with Asymmetrical hemlines can be tricky to pull off but when done correctly, I think they bring out the fun in every single outfit. And that tactic also applies in life when you find yourself on uneven grounds; you have to be very careful when planning on your next move. You either tread very carefully or you don't make a single move & stay safe (something I often find myself doing). A very cowardly...

Flowy dresses are an essential for Summer & this year's Summer sure is hot. So I imagined myself in such a dress with my hair flowing in the wind & enjoying the summer breeze with a fruity cocktail in my hand. But there's a change of plot here, there's no hair flowing in the wind because I just did another 'Big Chop'. It still needs some time taking used to but am loving it especially during this crazy hot weather.

Oh yes am back after a short hiatus here on the Blog, & no, I don't have any concrete excuse for my abscence. Life sometimes just happens & you get completely caught up in it. I felt like wearing a simple midi-skirt so I went ahead & made myself one with this fabric that has been lying around in my Fabric-stash for years. I also made a matching crop top but that will make its 'Blog-appearance' some other time. Hope that you are all well & am glad to be back.

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'.

I got yet another wonderful opportunity to attend a networking event organized by the Global Digital Women which was this time hosted by the 'Kale & Me' Company. This is a company based here in Hamburg which was founded by 3 friends back in May 2015, that produces & sells 'cold pressed' fresh juices. They have been able to penetrate the market & are doing an amazing job not only here in Germany but also in Austria, with plans to increase their production & products to reach an...

There are many times when we make plans & strategize on how we are going to achieve goals that we had set, but then suddenly something goes wrong somewhere & we are thrown off our 'goal-path'. And in as much as such blows are hard to handle & they make us feel like just throwing in the towel & forgetting all about what we had looked forward to. We somehow wake up on Monday mornings, pick up the pieces that are left & face up to the reality that we just stumbled, but we...

Am pretty late jumping on the 'Gingham' bandwagon as you can see, but better late than never right. I bought this dress earlier this summer off of Ebay but for some reason, never got to wear it. I honestly felt that I was showing too much with the sleeveless arms, short length & a slit too. So, I looked for a fabric with the similar print, added long sleeves to it, a ruffle detail & created an inverted 'envelope' on the slit.
