African print!

I am obsessed with clothing made out of African prints, but with a modern twist. I bought this fabric way back in 2014 when I first visited Nigeria. I remember being so excited yet super overwhelmed when we went to the market. All fabrics looked and felt amazing…. but I could only carry 5!! Only … Continue Reading

Joggers & Heels!

Who says joggers have to be worn only while exercising or just as a lazy-chill-at-home piece? I like the idea of mixing hard and soft. I love the bagginess of this pants and contrasting them with heels just makes me giddy with excitement! Anyway, have a bomb weekend!

Stripe on stripe!

I love mixing prints and the easiest way to go about this is to pair items that belong to the same print family. Case in point, stripe on stripe. I wanted to add a muted colour so I went for this tan leather bag and complimented it with these nude pumps, which by now you … Continue Reading

Of Studs & Mesh!

I started building this outfit with this skirt in mind. I thrifted this piece years ago and I probably wore it once. Lately, I have been going through a decluttering process and this skirt happened to be one of the few pieces I decided to keep. I love its peek-a-boo unexpectedness and its shorter inner … Continue Reading

With love, from my Mama!

To say that I have had this coat for a decade would be a blatant lie. I have had this coat since 1997 or 1998 when I was still in primary school. I don’t remember all the nitty gritty details of how I inherited it but all I know is it was one of my … Continue Reading

Colourful + Floral!

This dress is definitely one of my weekend staples. It’s colourful, has a simple yet comfortable shape and can be worn for various events. Plus, did I mention that it’s a cheaply thrifted Marc Jacobs piece? Can I get a hallelujah?! Pictures: DannySkech Location: FarmHouz This is an ode to all the women struggling with … Continue Reading

Plaid on plaid!

This plaid sweater gives me so much life! I bought it sometime late last year at Toi Market and my cousin (.. hey Mel!) who I was shopping with at the time, just could not understand why I was buying this sweater. She said it’s very …‘granny… old lady-ish’…. I was out to prove her wrong. … Continue Reading

Mustard + Side Zippers!

Was recently shopping for lightweight sweaters since the Nairobi weather has recently been so indecisive! Since buying this sweater in Istanbul in 2015, I have always had a slight obsession with sweaters or knits with side zippers. Now that, combined with the mustard colour… of course I was sold! We shot this outfit at FarmHouz, … Continue Reading

His Shirt!

When I feel like I don’t have anything to wear, or if I am simply just not feeling my own closet, I always go to the hubby’s closet and secretly borrow something from there. I have always been a tomboy and love dressing down especially on the weekends when I have zero plans other than … Continue Reading

Flourless Banana Pancake!

I found myself craving for some homemade pancakes last weekend. Thing is, I wanted a healthy kind (because I tend to fall off the wagon and crave sweets during weekends). So I tried making some with the ingredients listed below. I used oats instead of regular wheat flour to help bind the mixture. I eventually had … Continue Reading
