Art Walk: Valentine’s Edition; at Kuona Trust Art Centre

DSCN6715

What would you wear to an art event?

This is the question that kept ringing in my head a few days before this event. I bet some of you guys-like myself, always want to look the part for any event/occasion they get to attend.

First let me acknowledge the beautiful glass art standing behind me.

I have come to learn, that you do not have to ponder about it.

You will always have a notion of what to wear to what event, if not you can always ask somebody.

In my opinion, I would suggest all manner of prints for artsy events. Go all out, mix and match your favourite prints. Be bold enough to take that step, as you will be expressing your own kind of art :)

For the Art Walk, I decided to wear my bold printed animal print that I wore here and styled it a little different. It was more of mixing shades of brown, as you can see from my necklace, to my stacked boots and my waist belt.

Can you notice how one item-(the belt) transformed the dress completely!! (If you compare the different ways I styled it.)

DSCN6711A few pieces I loved by creative artists I met at the event. If you like any f her stuff, let me know and I can share her contacts with you. Below are some of her pieces including phone and tablet covers.

Without further ado,

Thanks for reading :)

Sequins and a Short Skirt + these cool glasses!!

DSCN6613

There are times you look into your brimful wardrobe and you get the feeling that you don’t have any clothes to wear!!!( Holla if you feel me :) )

This is the feeling I had the other day when I was trying to pick out what to wear. Every time I get this feeling, I tell myself to change things a bit. The task of incorporating outfits that you have never paired before can be a little tricky-but at the end it’s always worth it; as you get to explore your personal style and in doing so- your style evolves beautifully.

I decided to pair my bold printed skirt with a tight-fitting black sequin vest. It’s more of playing with geometry shapes. When the skirt/trouser is a loose fit, I normally g for a tight fitting top or blouse and vice-versa. Please note that this is not a rule set in stone. You can always play with different outfits to your liking.

I completed the look with my black blazer with gold sequins on the shoulders. It has a nice cut and edges that matches perfectly with my sort of-bubble skirt.

I wore my favorite heels to elongate my look and the sunglasses(borrowed) just because I thought they looked good :)

Lucia’s Bloggers Giveaway + hellofood Kenya

IMG_3380

Amazing blogger Lucia Musau has a Bloggers Valentine Giveaway on her blog. She is one of the Kenyan bloggers that I am an avid reader of. She is giving upcoming bloggers like myself a chance to showcase their work – that is if we get the chance to win the giveaway

She is in collaboration with hellofood Kenya, who were kind enough to give her a few goodies and out of her golden heart-(it has to be..) has decided to share it with her fellow bloggers.

To be eligible for the competition, I have to answer a few questions, so here goes:

1. How does online food delivery make your life easier?

Food delivery always comes in handy especially if I do not have time to prepare the food I want or whatever I am craving for.

2. Having visited hellofood.co.ke, I think it is fantastic as I get the chancing of having food delivered from restaurants of my choice. However they should consider having  deliveries all over Nairobi and add more restaurants.

3. What more would you like to see more on luciamusau.comI would love to see a shoe and bag collection. I think she has an amazing taste in those.

X fingers hoping to stand a chance to win!!

Much love <3 <3 <3

Super Late on Tribal Print

DSCN6596Hello,

To let you in on what my week has been- I have had to do two papers this week. So it has been loads of late night reading, discussions and early runs in the morning. Yea, I started this workout/how I start my day regimen by running a kilometre or so at around 5.30am but mostly at 6.00am and 6.30am when it’s hard for me to get out of bed :) . I would really love to know about your work out routines – so you can leave a comment down below

Well, that was my life this week. I however managed to dress up a little as I was “exam-free”-if that’s a word, midweek, and I thought it would be nice to share it with you wonderful people.

DSCN6592

To be honest with you guys, I have had this dress for so long and I have never put it on-at all! Yea, I know it’s sad-considering how gorgeous it is. Bodycon tribal print is that it is an eye-catcher that you don’t really need accessories.

The only accessories I have on is my beaded bracelet-and I am good to go…oh + a good pair of striking red heels!!

That’s it guys, It’s always lovely to come here to talk to you!! Let me know how you would dress up your bodycon tribal print. I could learn a thing or two :)

#Mike and Daisy, thank you for taking my pics

Thanks for stopping by,

Much Love <3 <3 <3

 

Stripped Maxi Dress + a little confidence

IMG_6360

I got a new post for the week. It’s all about The Striped Maxi Dress.

I bought this dress a few years back and it is always my go to when i want something pretty and simple.

This pictures were taken last year-I don’t know why I took so long to share them with you :(

I paired it with my simple short sleeve black blazer and Masai sandals.

IMG_6367Guys!!! We were daring enough to take pics in Lifestyle. At some point one of the guards came to inform us of the “No photography policy”. Its funny how with every single photo shoot, I am more confident. I know, if I tell you I am a shy girl, you wouldn’t believe me.

COLLEGE Fashion 101

Hello, cheers to 2015!..,as we all hope for a good year filled with joy and happiness.

I have just realized that I am about to finish school – I am literally at the edge, and I’ve never shared my kind of “college fashion” with you guys.

This is college fashion 101 as I’d like to share how I use simple garments to create an edgy campus look.

I used a simple tee and my floral tiered skirt as my canvas. I then accessorized it with a brown waist belt, beaded necklace, and my khaki-coloured stacked boots.

I also had my “geek-glasses”-lack of a better name-(if you know what they are called feel free to enlighten me in the comment box below) to complete the look.

 

The floral skirt added a soft edge to the whole look.

Remember the time when everyone was obsessed with that Bon Jovi song?

Well, at times I just carry my books to class, when I don’t feel like carrying a bag. This has occurred once, :)

My little sister Eva came through with the pictures :)…thumbs up!

That’s it for today

Thanks for reading,

Much love <3 <3

What’s on Your Nails?

DSC_0057

On this day, I was just chilling at home nothing much to do. I look at my plain nails, and I decided they need a “face-lift”. I was going to write “nail-lift” but the sound of that is really ouch!! sorry!! – what is written can not be erased!! hahaha..”evil laughter!!!”

There goes stupid me :).

The beautiful piece of art resting on my nails include; Luron 77, 40 and 26. Each for around 95/=

I used one layer of base coat on my nails and two coats of Luron 40 on all my fingers except the ring finger.

I think accent nails are really cool and very awesome!..I had to do it. I used Luron 77 – my current favorite and Luron 26. I applied a base coat, followed by Luron 26 and two coats of Luron 77 to get the dark finish.

I am currently obsessed with shimmer nail polish, I am thinking of getting a quite a number of different colours.
