'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...

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.

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...

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, you will notice a lot of 'Red' popping up everywhere (outfits, decorations, recipes, gift ideas, flowers), so I thought to myself, why not do a 'Valentine's Day' inspired outfit. I brought out my minimal red heels & one of my favourite Ankara Print dresses which has some red prints on it. But because the 'Red phase' is not yet officially here yet, I decided to tone things down a little by adding a grey chunky knit cardigan & grey socks (...

What is more fashionably reliable than an LBD (Little Black Dress) worn all year round. It is very elegant, works with every woman's shape & can be combined in so many styles & outfits. For someone who is a sworn lover of prints, I have to admit that I do own quite a few LBD's in my wardrobes & they are my 'rescue' go-to outfits when i really can't decide on what to wear, & this lace one is by far my favourite. I've had it for almost 5 years & has been combined it into so...

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...

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.

With more than 300,000 African immigrants living in Germany & a good number of them running successful businesses which contribute to the economical success of this country, an Event in Hamburg to celebrate them was definately worth attending.

To be honest, designing & making these African inspired evening gowns for the Miss Kenya Germany Beauty Pageant 2016 was quite a big challenge for me. In as much as I love my prints & bright colours, I always try & tone down on my creations, make them into simple outfits that do not 'shout' in any way & can easily be combined with other pieces already available in any woman's wardrobe.
