So my sister did a remix with this cute print top, styling the top with a skirt and pants. I love them both but I have to say the skirt wins it for me!, for starters, shopping in Kenyan markets almost guarantees unique finds like the dress top. I think the print is rather unique, have you seen/do you own a print like the that?
And the shoes are to die for! I always shy away from bright colored shoes, esp pink but now am convinced I could rock them. I think I would call this outfit bold and fierce , same words I would describe my sister lol.IMG_2349

Let’s not forget the clutch too, so cute! I could definitely see myself with that. All in all I love the remix style, the pants would be perfect for a day of shopping and running errands, while the skirt would be perfect for dinner, brunch or church, which is what my sister dressed it for.

I think this is a good example of being well dressed without wasting money on clothing items, I hear a lot of girls talking about how dressing up daily would cost them money, but dressing up doesn’t mean wearing designer clothes and new clothes everyday (unless of course if you can afford that – then read no more lol), learning to shop your closet, buy sales items and thrift shopping can result to amazing outfits.

Lastly, is that hair style a Kenyan trend now? Lupita nyong’o had a similar hair style for SAG awards and I saw a lot of girls saying it wasn’t age appropriate and that she looked like a child?
I think it’s very cute and appropriate for adults. What do you think guys?

This is definitely my favorite winter dress from F21. It was love at first sight when I saw it one lovely evening after binge-watching madmen and feeling very “1960s”.   I adore 1960s fashion like no-one does!!!, so cute and perfect.

Lately I have been finding a lot of inspirational personal blogs that have sparked something inside in terms of fashion. I hate dressing like a slob, especially because my work involves wearing scrubs that are not flattering at all, and I wear them almost every single day of the week. Therefore putting an outfit together is rather important. I am the kind of person who gets dressed up to a coffee shop to people-watch (especially tacoma or Seattle coffee shops where i get to see eccentric fashion styles that just make me happy)

Street style is definitely my thing, i love seeing people in the streets with all their different personal tastes. That’s why I fall hard in love with independent fashion bloggers that are raw and realistic, style comes in all shapes and sizes and it is important for girls of all sizes to feel beautiful through whatever it is they decide to express themselves through.

I had the epiphany that light was laughter and laughter was light, and that this was the secret of the universe 🙂

Sunday spark!

I love the quote above, so much truth in it and I thought I would share it for some Sunday spark!
So… I’ve been binge-watching mad men all day because am sick 😩, I thought about going to church but the frequent sneezing and watering eyes made me think twice. I am not a homebody at all and staying home all day was hard…lol, I cleaned, did laundry and cooked (a lot of cooking and eating).

Other than all the eating, I also did some nail care, my absolute least favorite thing to do..but I always love my feet so much better after. Here are my holy grail nail care items:

I decided to go with blue nail polish to match the winter blues (jokes)..😏
And glitter (because a girl can never sparkle too much)
I also love the Sally Hansen cuticle remover, which works wonders! and because it’s winter and dry, I use the johnsons baby oil to soften my feet.
Have a lovely Sunday ladies and gents

The GOLDFINCH!!

Hey friends!

If you can’t tell by the topic that this post is about my latest favorite book then you need to grab yourself a copy. The Goldfinch is by far one of the best books I’ve read/listened to in a while. I read at least one book a month now that I’m not in school, and I have a grown-up full-time job, meaning I don’t have as much “free” time as I used to, so I try as much as I can to sneak in a book. Most of the time I use audible to listen to books on my commute to work (about 30-45 mins), and saves me from the public humiliation of displaying my dance moves to fellow drivers on the I-5 (I can’t pass on a good song if you know what I mean 😉 ). Anyhow, if you’re a bookworm and looking for a good book, the Goldfinch will not disappoint. It is a drama that made me cry and laugh out loud alone in my car.

On other news, here’s a weekend recap: I had the best weekend with some of my girlfriends I hadn’t seen in a while, I got to see Taken 3, which was AMAZING! Here are some pics of my outfit and deets 🙂
