Doing your own engagement photos

     Ian and I recently did our engagement photos, and I decided it would be fun to do it ourselves vs a professional photographer. I know hiring someone would have probably yielded better quality photos but we both are very happy with the photos we got. Reasons I did this: 1. Engagement sessions are usually a good way to choose a wedding photographer and kind … Read More Doing your own engagement photos

Maxi skirt

On my recent shopping trip I scored this maxi on the sale rack from Charlotte Russe, it was the only maxi in size “small” and I had to get it! Back then when I was in high school, I remember maxi skirts and dresses being the “it”, but none of them would fit me because I was too short. I haven’t changed much in … Read More Maxi skirt

Working for the weekend

Last week was literally one of my hardest weeks at work, at one point I felt like bursting into tears because of how crazy everything was getting and am glad I work with some really helpful people. But these kind of days make it worthwhile when you have some days off. All that aside, this was the most epic weekends I’ve had in a … Read More Working for the weekend

REMIX: sister style

So my sister did a remix with this cute print top, styling the top with a skirt and pants. I love them both but I have to say the skirt wins it for me!, for starters, shopping in Kenyan markets almost guarantees unique finds like the dress top. I think the print is rather unique, have you seen/do you own a print like the … Read More REMIX: sister style

Peter pan collar dress.

This is definitely my favorite winter dress from F21. It was love at first sight when I saw it one lovely evening after binge-watching madmen and feeling very “1960s”.   I adore 1960s fashion like no-one does!!!, so cute and perfect. Lately I have been finding a lot of inspirational personal blogs that have sparked something inside in terms of fashion. I hate dressing … Read More Peter pan collar dress.
