'You don't have to know it all or even do it all but your HEART absolutely has to be in it.' I recently came across this quote online which was shared by the amazing 'Myleik' & it deeply resonated with me (just like most of the content that she shares does). Fear shows up everyday in our lives & even the slightest sight of it makes us stop suddenly in our tracks. It might be the fear of failure, of losing it all, of taking that first leap of faith, of not having everything figured out,...

'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...

Museums are opened again...Yippee! This is great news because I, just like many have missed viewing Art Exhibitions. Online Museum visits just didn't cut it for me, just like online concerts & simply anything else that normaly invokes some passion in me, these unfortunately just didn't appeal to me at all. This was my last museum visit before we went into another lockdown last year & this is one that I really enjoyed. 'Peter Lindbergh' (deceased 2019) was a world renowned Fashion...

...so it continues, my short reviews (very short) of the books that I have read recently (and by recently, I mean in the last 3 months). And as always, it's all a 'mishy mashy' mix of different genres & even languages. Yes, I sneaked in a 'foreign language' book, foreign as in 'German' because in as much as I live in Germany, I mostly read English books & my Blog is still written in English. 'An American Marriage' is based on a young black American couple who due to a sudden turn of...

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...

Stop expecting my life to be easy. Life is not easy for everyone (well, not all the time anyway), we all experience major challenges & that does not mean that we are doing it wrong. Stop expecting myself to be able to manage more than I have the capacity to cope with. I need to learn to set boundaries not only for others but for myself too. Learn to stop taking on too much & reacting in shock or shame when I can't do it all. I literally don't need to do it all, nobody does. Stop...

This compilation of the books that I have read recently looks just as jumbled up as my interests in life generally. With each passing day, I try out new things & experience different interests, fall in love with new ones & lose interest (pun intended) in old ones. I had planned on arranging the books nicely in their respective categories (Fiction, Finance, Romance) but I just can't be bothered. This is just the order in which they find themselves. Here is a short summary; and PS: I have...

Happy New Year! I have promised myself that I am going to publish this Blog before the clock strikes midnight & we start February. The reason why is in my book of rules, you are not allowed to say 'Happy New Year' after the 31st of January. So, as to be able to beat the deadline, this might turn out to be a really short Blog!

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...
