PAPER LOVE

All through my life I've had a thing for doodling on any written material I own, this piece is actually a re-make of one of the things I used to scribble on my notebook some 10 years back.







See the original piece Miss Vavavum fashion at 10 years 

Have you used uberduka.com I would love to know your experience!

Blankets & Wine 54

Day in day out I am always excited about the opportunities/ lessons each waking moment brings. One thing is for sure, the more days go by, the more exciting things I come across. I am always excited to see people who push boundaries in order to grow/ challenge the status quo(within legal and moral lines). Exactly 2 weeks back, I attended the  54th edition of Blankets & Wine. Which btw has a whole new exciting look to It(such are the things that excite me, going that extra mile, it's refreshing and inspiring)I was amazed by the new look, the addition of the new platforms especially the Art & fashion hive clinched my right spot!(obviously)
The event has added new segments such as the Art Hive whereby amazing artists showcase their items.

The Fashion Art Hive


 Funky T-shirts by Chilli Mango

How innovative is this?



The Children's play area
 The PAWA 254 segment that showcases top films from around,

The stage area where live bands play, you may still carry your picnic and shuka like old times
 I absolutely loved this ensemble on Wendy Kimani!
Myself and my current obsession, the Maasai neckpiece. You see, let me just explain myself, this absolutely stunning piece turns even the blandest of my outfits to an absolutely cool ensemble. Given that this particular Sunday was rather dull(translating to layering of clothes) I settled for this heavy denim on denim look and my lovely Maasai piece to add that 'vavavum' ;)
The beauty is always in the little details


There were breaks in between performances to enable people move from one segment to another, If you consider yourself an enthusiast of both the performing and visual arts this is definitely the place for you- so much goodness to take in!

Spotted at the KWANI? stage, there was an ongoing reading and sale of selected books


Long live music!
 It's always a good time with Jack Rooster on the decks, this segment is completely dedicated to Afrohouse music, my other favorite ;)
With my soul sista :)

Catching performances in the evening

Clearly there is something for everyone to enjoy! Hope to meet some of you at the next event!

Have yourselves a super charged week!

Next Big Thing!

I absolutely adore this neck piece! Never in my life did I ever imagine that I would be overly obsessed with a seeming casual traditional piece of jewelry. It is safe to say that the Maasai ladies are my fashion obsession at the moment, I mean how amazingly awesome is this piece? And they wear these all the time as a sign of beauty!!- too cool!
Mixing this piece with ordinary outfits is almost too easy! Especially or the plain outfits that just need a dash of va-va-vum to It like this loose fit shirt and grey pants

These shoes are everything and more!! Follow me on uberduka.com to find out where to get these gems

Diary Of A Working Woman 2

Entry level jobs are very important to the majority of the human race, excited at the possibilities of better things to come we are sometimes thrust with so much to cover
At entry level we all find it important to be our best and take on all our tasks with all psych possible, sometimes it piles up and piles up next thing you know…


The piling pressure literally feels like a stack of files on the head!

How was your first work experience?

Share your story!
