Color Block-ASOS embroidered skirt

This post has been long over due, I remember this day, I made my pal drive around with me in the rain scouting for locations until it stopped raining, lol. All credit to my luv Terri who was so patient with me. Thnx doll. OK back to the post……..

I love love love this skirt!!!!! I initially ordered it a size too big from ASOS, no biggie, I got it tailored to fit perfect! The quality is amazing and the detail is impecable, did I mention it has pockets! I paired it with an old turquoise lace top I’ve had for years and my fav neon pink pumps, that I left in Kenya on my last trip there a couple weeks ago :(. I loved all the pics and couldn’t decide on which to post, so I posted all, hope ya’ll don’t mind.

Let me know what you think! will have a give away soon!!

Calm after the Storm

Time has passed, we have mourned and buried our loved one’s from the devastation that was the #westgateattack.

Most around the world watched in despair as the siege went on for four straight days, citizens and diaspora of Kenya sat at the edge of there seats as they watched terror attack their own.

It is yet amazing how this brought the country together through a massive outpour of support through social media as well as contributions for the victims, Kenyans raised over 30million Kenya shillings in 2 days! How amazing is that?! I logged on to my twitter handle constantly to get details on the siege but was moved by the unity of #KOT (Kenyans on Twitter). They virtually held each other’s hands throughout the whole ordeal and kept hope alive chanting slogans like #weareone and indeed the country stood as one, setting aside tribal and color differences.

As the world watched through various media outlets, they felt our pain and sent messages of support because there own were involved in the attacks and not just Kenyans.

Hopefully the country remains as ONE and the citizens continue to bless each other with positivity as they did through the ordeal, it really showed us what we are capable of as a country in whole.

Oh God of all creation,
Bless this Our land and nation,
Justice be our shield and defender,
May dwell in unity, peace and liberty
Plenty be found within our borders

Below are pics of Diaspora and American friends that wanted to show their support from miles away, we all hurt as one, we are all mankind.

Easy Breezy

Mondays seem to be the worst day known to man lol but I celebrate it because it’s my fri. I’m never off on weekends and after 32 hrs of work, Mondays get to be ME days… I can relax all day without a care in the world for much needed recuperation rest.

Today I ended up running errands with a friend and she had so many worries in this life, I was thinking… Life is too short to be sweat the little things… Where there is a will there is always a way.

Someone once quoted that life is really simple but we insist of making it complicated.

On that note, my day today is chilled, decided to go with a multi colored maxi skirt from Ross, a simple tank top and some sandals I got from Maasai market (Kenya).

On that note… Have a great day loves, I’m headed for a swim to cool down from this blazing heat

How to wear printed pants #1

In the next few posts I will show you curvy ladies how to style printed pants, because it could get tricky. I got the pants from Lane Bryant.  This is the casual Friday look, for a dress down day at work or whatever else you may want. Please excuse  the faces i’m making…it was freezing cold that day.
