Let me start off with Happy New Year! And a Happy New Month!
I would love to say that 2018 is off to a great start like everyone else on my timeline but the truth is it isn’t…12 days into the year and I had to say goodbye to my grams. It tore me to shreds, turned me inside out and threw me off balance. Some days are warm and sunny and others cold and pitch dark but God…
I am using this period between Christmas and New Year to relax, review the year that 2017 has been and think about my 2018 resolutions. Yes, I still write resolutions (see here) because I believe in manifestation of your own dreams and that what you confess you possess. Habakkuk 2:2
Ever had that one outfit that you feel needs an audience? This dress is it for me. It calls for attention with every step I make…the fringe sways and announces my presence ??.
Posting during the festive season is so tricky but we try. How is your Christmas Eve coming along? I have just bought the ingredients for a chocolate cake am baking for tomorrow as well as pancakes for tomorrow a breakfast tradition I have successfully followed the past couple of years!
I will try and put up a post of the recipe just in case you want to make some pancakes for your family this season.
Guess who’s back…I hope you are enjoying yourselves this holiday season.Let’s get back to our 12days of Christmas shall we?
If you are a regular at this blog then you already know the trend that stole my heart this year.I have had mad love for the off-shoulder detail.My shoulders have had a major moment this year and I am still basking at its goodness. It is quite accommodating irregardless of your age or size you get to show some skin without feeling too exposed. I also really bought into the choker trend in its simplicity and retro vibe.
I wish the embroidery extended a little to the front but hey thrifters are not choosers…oh but the joys of thrifting can you imagine I bought this shirt for ksh60?
I saw it,heard the price and quickly started scanning for stains, tears, a missing sleeve or something because how? But it was in perfect shape no missing buttons,all the sleeves were intact and it had this beautiful embroidery detail at the back and I was sold!
1.What is your favorite Christmas movie?
Home Alone! It brings me so many childhood memories.
- Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Whenever I get them if it’s Christmas Eve or on Christmas day I will open it right then and there!
I have really loved the ruffle detailing at the hemline this year (see this) it adds such a fun flare to any outfit and instantly makes the skirt or dress as in this case much more outstanding. I feel oh so sexy in this number the vertical stripes make me look lean and taller and like I’ve got legs for days.I have been skeptical about wearing drop waistline dresses especially if its form fitting so to be honest the vertical stripes really helped in making it easier.
welcome to day 2 of my 12 days of Christmas!!
If I had my way I would spend Christmas by the beach side getting some much needed Vitamin Sea. It has been a long tough year coming to terms with life changes that come with no warning and even tougher facing the person I have become as a result and whether or not I like that person? Verdict: not so much! Hence the much needed Vitamin Sea. I spent most of my childhood at the coast (watamu to be precise)and every time I would go there as an adult I find so much peace and serenity. Not sure whether it’s the childhood memories or the beach but it always feels like coming home every time. If wishes were horses….
Happy Jamhuri Day lovelies! And happy day 1 of blog-mas!!❤?
I don’t know if it’s too late to jump on this blog-mas/vlog-mas craze but I have joined the bandwagon. In the spirit of Christmas I have decided to bring a little Christmas cheer over here with 12days of Christmas which means I will try and put up a post daily (except the weekends) up until Christmas day. I hope you like it.
