Little Things

Being totally involved and bombarded by  life's 'normalcy' may lead to loss of attention to beautiful things around us. Taking a different point of view. We live in an exotic, city! The richly colored trees, the blue skies, the moving clouds, the flowers... I could go on and on, life really is beautiful.

I believe in the importance of being grateful to experience the beauty of the little things around us. It makes life so much more bearable and even as sources of inspiration. 

I am still very much into Maasai inspired neck pieces, this color is just so yummy! and blends in with the summer feel of the skirt. Also, it adds a little brightness to even the dullest of days ;)
Every new day is a gift, take notice of all the beautiful things around you!
 And stay happy!

Happy thanksgiving!

At Nairobi Fashion Market

Ahh... The Nairobi Fashion Market... brings back some great memories, young and hungry, chasing after my fashion dream backed with nothing but willingness, focus and a passion for fashion. This was some 3 years back, I landed my first ever style gig at this event, a good story for another day!
Well this past event was no different, this time still very much filled and driven by my passion for fashion, A LOT more knowledge, valuable experience and a dire need to do my best to build the fashion industry.I spent most of my time hunting for designers, my goodness we have great talent in this country!
It was great to be back, mixing work and play-life's little joys ;)

Checking in to the event with my younger sister

Racks and racks of clothes- so much color and prints ;)

the runway

The weather was rather dull on this particular day, but fortunately the sun made a brief appearance. I opted for a monochrome look with a touch of culture, while my sister looked absolutely yummy in orange skirt + black high neck top (side note isn't her neck piece stunning?!)

Material Girl in A Digital World

I love fashion, I love the limitlessness of creativity that comes with it, I love to combine colors and textures, I love to put different pieces together to portray a message, I love to feel pretty, I love to study and peruse trends- to decide what's worth following or not, I love to see designers create magnificent couture pieces, I love watching and putting together  different fabrics combined to create magnificent style pieces! And most of all I love the digital world for giving me all these on my finger tips.

 I love my adventures in the digital fashion jungle, style surfing, style conversing, style tweeting, style messages and my favorite- style-gramming!

Live,love fashion
