'Not every opportunity or person that knocks on your door should be let in.' I read this quote somewhere some time back & funnily enough it is only now that am really getting its meaning. At times you pray & actually wish that a certain opportunity should come your way & the excitement that you feel when this happens is unbelievable. But for some crazy reason, you miss the right time to grab the opportunity & you sadly have to watch it slip way. And after going through the '5...

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...

3 guesses what the blog title is about....Hint Hint (Far East Asia & East Africa)! One of the fashion trends in the last seasons has been 'Asian Inspired' & it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Such pieces are characterized by their ornate detailing with today's designers adding their own contemporary spin to it. The runways & stores were full with Chinese-inspired silhouettes in colorful florals adorned with embroidery, feathering, mandarin collars, contrasting binding & silk...

Somebody pinch me! Ok, that's the feeling that I've been having ever since I received a phone call to let me know that I had won the 'afrika!Community Award in the 'Business Category' late last year. This is not the first award that I have won but this is special because it came at a time when I was dealing with some self-doubt as a business owner, which I wrote about here.

''...I became her, the person I was supposed to be, but that isn't me...'' Ella is 38, she is in a relationship with Johnny, lives in a small house & works for an Insurance company. On Sundays they have barbecues with their neighbors, on Mondays they go to work, they sometimes have sex, most of the time it is planned & they also have plans to have kids in the future, sometime. They have plans to build their own house, she doesn't enjoy her job anymore, but that's how it is with...

Happy New Year! I heard that there is a certain deadline to using this phrase in the year, but we don't always have to play by the rules. Hope that you all crossed well & safe into the new year. I definitely did even though things have been a bit quiet here on my Blog. Somehow, I experienced a 'Blog-freeze' which can only be described as a lack of motivation to keep my Blog updated. But thankfully I am back & hope that things will get even more interesting as we go along the year....

This is me heading out to my Work's Christmas Party. Only that there's no 'Work Christmas Party' because I work alone & that is not my real hair:-). But if there was ever such a party, this is how I would show up because this outfit sums up my personality (mixing business with pleasure), always ready for business but also full of fun & energy.

'Remain in Light' is originally an album by the American Rock Band 'Talking Heads' which has been covered by 'Angélique Kidjo'. I had the opportunity to sample a bit of the amazing tunes at her live performance in the Elbphilarmonie in Hamburg. In her own words, 'it's not cultural appropriation but cultural diversification' as she channels the original beats in her own way by using Afrobeat & a choir to transform the fearful texture of the songs into a soulful warmth. She additionally...
