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!
