Back at IT

Asalaam aleikum my people. Guess who couldn't stay away from blogging? That's right. So I told ya'll in the last post that I was out looking for a need to keep blogging and in the past few days I think I found it. You may or may not know that I gave away my Instagram page,

Monday, 25 July 2016


Asalaam Aleikum loves. This post today won't have any pictures unfortunately but just things that need to be said.I started blogging at a time where I was doing two courses in two different schools and I was legit going to lose my mind if I didn't find a distraction, something that I actually enjoyed doing, and blogging was that thing. I was always the go-to person for fashion tips by my sisters/friends so I figured why not use that to do something like this. It worked, it gave me something to look forward to amidst all the books and classes. After a while I started looking at it as something that could have potential, in the sense of making an income and networking with other people in the same industry. I got a little attention here and there by blogs and tabloids so that made it seem more likeable for lack of a better word. At some point, although no one likes to admit it, you want to be the best at it and there's nothing wrong with that, I mean after all it's something you're putting time and effort into. During ramadhan, I wasn't blogging because I was home and I just wanted that time to myself. When I got back I graduated and did the previous post because I wanted to share the outfit and all but something just clicked even when I was making that post. The words were taking me longer to find, I would be on the post just staring at it wondering if I should post it or not. In a nutshell I lost the enthusiasm for blogging. I found dressing up and finding a pretty location quite exhausting, and more so finding the right words for the post, heck even the title became a nuisance. Which is why i'm writing this post today. To tell you that blogging served its purpose in my life at a time I needed it to but I feel like that purpose is gone. I will always have this space whenever I feel like writing or even doing a fashion post but for now, I need to do things that make me feel good like blogging used to.
Thanks for reading as always. Xoxo.

Asalaam aleikum loves, a post has been long overdue but here's a very white comeback(yes, i just said that). Ramadhan was amazing as always. I spent it at home with family as i always do because it just does'nt feel like ramadhan unless i'm at home.

Crop x Ball-Gown Skirt

Salaam aleikum beauties, there's a saying that goes, "Playing dress up begins at age 5 and never truly ends" i do not know who said it but i agree everyday. Sometimes you just want to be extra dressed up, and this outfit for me is tres (very) elegant.

Nuetral Shades

 Asalaam aleikum loves, i am loving all my nuetral shades  clearly, from the scarf to the midi-vest to the bag all the way down to the shoes. Midi-vest are all sorts of chic and weather appropriate, especially for this bi-polar Nairobi weather. It keeps me warm enough when it chilly and if its sunny it has enough breathing space so am comfortable.

Grey Jump-dress

Salaam aleikum loves, shoots done at 6 in the evening after sunset might not be the best thing but when your photographer is bomb, you get good pictures. Grey weather, grey outfit..i think i stumble upon such beautiful coincidences.

Twenty-two piece

Asalaam aleikum loves, a blog post has been long overdue but here it is. Strange title huh, well am turning 22 today and my outfit is a two-piece so twenty-two piece..creative no?. People celebrate the day they were born but i want to celebrate the year that was 21. Am not the same person i was last year and am so happy about that because if you're not changing then are you really growing. So lets take stock of 21 shall we;

C'est La Vie

Salaam ladies, total random post. Am in the middle of studying and I get some sort of 'epiphany', well not entirely but a moment that am sure as hell going to write about.  You know how you get beat down sometimes by life, in whatever form, the last couple of months have been like that for me. Lets just say am not one to leave things 'out of order'. So when a few things start to spiral it drives me close to nuts. Anyway, outta nowhere, in a very long time, I feel like myself again. I am not angry, or sad, I feel like am in control of my life again. A calm feeling that everything is going to be okay. I feel Bossed up haha. You know when you stop tripping coz you remember you how strong you are, yea thats me right now.
Its okay to be angry, you won't and can't control everything in your life, you just gotta let it slide sometimes. Stick with God, if anybody's got you its Him. If things get too much, take a breather. Surround yourself with positive energy, I can't emphasise this more, let go of anything thats bringing you down. Happiness is from within, you can't look for that in other people.
Thanks for reading.

Salaam loves, i know i know, whats up with the no blog posts?. I really try to be consistent with blogging but school literally took over any kind of life i had before, and am not even done ya'll but In shaa Allah in a few weeks i'll be back with posts that are giving me the gitters (Yaas,that good!) Hopefully you ladies will love them as much.

So you've seen all the fashion posts which i have so much fun doing...and now this is the other 'half' of the blog, the feminist posts, which i will be doing occasionally in this new series i call WINNING WOMEN.
