Rekindled love

I would give you a thousand chances to swallow my heart if it means I get to write and hear those little stories about you over again. Waking up to the embrace of your beauty, a lifetime love, a world within your world inside, a dream inside your dream, a cocoon of memories of every moment spent with you. I have trouble sleeping without you, I lose touch with myself without your presences, you have no idea of how hard it is to force myself to stop thinking about you all the time. You might be out of sight but never out of my mind, I want to walk holding your hands to manifest the charm of our love in the street of Nairobi where will never get lonely. Travel with you to take a look at this big world before dark, side by side never losing sight.

To complete an ensemble that represents you, what you place on your feet is just as important as what you wear, and can even take your outfit to…

The Glamour In Simplicity

Glamour lies in simplicity which is the ultimate sophistication. Being up tight in our dressing code is no longer the norm of standing out neither is it the definition of cute. Great beauty is a mystery which comes through simplicity, and that’s why great design is a great complexity presented via simplicity like this dashiki shirt dress. Dashiki print which originated from West Africa countries also known as Angelina print is not off the trend yet, so lets enjoy the shine while it lasts. I love shirt dresses for one reason, they are loose, breezy and not fitted or clingy which makes me feel comfortable in them. They sound like casual wear but they have the power to take you everywhere from the office to after-work drinks or a picnic.

I took a pen to write a love poem; instead I wrote a dry poem. A poem about my bleeding heart; a heart that needs deliverance. Deliverance from…

Meet Angelina

During the December holiday, we set out to meet one of the women support group based in Kibera. This was on our continually search for brands that create African designs and local products. Upon arrival we met Angelina the support group lead, a multitalented woman who trains the group into making various products using her artistic skills. Some of their items include; Mats which comes in various shapes and colors depending on their purposes ie. (floor, table, bathroom & toilet mats), baby shoes crochet, homemade detergents from regular soaps to antiseptics, bags, and other accessories. Through this they are able to monetize their products enabling them to support themselves as most of them are either widows or single mums. I found the group to be welcoming and high in spirit in their activities enabling me to learn how to sew mats. No doubt the experience was one of a kind.

Yet again the year is young with so much optimism and enthusiasm. Success, fun, new ventures are at the top of our imaginations, it’s time to unfold new…

Merry Christmas to all, wishing you peace and joy this holiday seasons and throughout the coming year. Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in this holiday season, that…

Millionah Arts

Maasai art which is dominated by bead-work remains the focus of demonstrating the most authentic ethnic tribe of Kenya the Maasai. The bead-work is used to create accessories like necklaces, bracelets, pendants, anklets, belts, and sandals, as well as home decor and a number of household tools. Their products are for both men and women, and they’re used in cultural practices such as weddings, rituals, and community events. It is considered a woman’s duty to do bead-work from Maasai community but that has changed and almost anyone from any tribe in Kenya can do bead-work whether male or female.
