“The more you practice the art of thankfulness, the more you have to be thankful for.” – Norman Vincent Peale
I know it’s thanksgiving season and though in Kenya we don’t have the turkey dinner traditions and going around the dinner table saying what we are thankful for doesn’t mean we can’t take this time to reflect on the year thus far and take a moment to be thankful.

So, I never thought I’d ever use a quote by Lil Wayne don’t get me wrong I do like his music but that mostly involves me going like ‘wait, what? you wanna put what where?’ Listening to hip-hop as a woman is such a treat no?

Karl Lagerfeld famously said:’ one is never overdressed or under-dressed with a little black dress.” And I couldn’t agree more it’s pretty hard to go wrong in this classic piece! One of the things I love about the lbd is its simplicity and sophistication. What’s more I can’t think of one occasion in which the black dress won’t have you covered. It’s one of those pieces that I believe every woman should have in her arsenal!
Floral dresses are closet must-haves from sweet floral frocks to wonderful wraps there are endless ways to embrace this print. They brighten up your day with vivid blooms making running errands much more fun or the catch up lunch that much merrier! When I came across this dress I didn’t give it a second look.
If there’s one night to bust out all the sparkles and shine, it’s NYE. It makes the best excuse all year to dress up, try something new and get downright creative with your look!
Its vintage, it’s black and it makes it look okay to wear a crop top to work. Sometimes dressing for work can feel a little dull and boring, it’s the little details that make it fun and add a bit of character to your outfit. For this vintage inspired dress it is the retro feel brought about by the cropped chiffon detail at the front and at the arms.
I am a huge fan of the pencil it in crop it out look so when I found this double layer dress I was convinced it was designed with me in mind. When I saw it, it looked so small I was afraid I’d have to spray it on thankfully like I said it was designed with me in mind and it fit like a glove!
