The pajama trend has taken the fashion world by storm; it’s comfy yet stylish. It pushes the fashion envelope, so it is definitely not for the faint-hearted, and I must admit it took me a while to warm up to this trend. But once I did, I fell completely in love with it.  It’s a slightly peculiar idea that not so many people have embraced, especially in conservative fashion circles, and I can understand why. Here are my two tips for pulling it off…

2017 was an amazing year in many respects.  My sense of style is still evolving and I think last year showed a mature yet playful side of my style. I aimed at pushing the envelope but was still not willing to take too many risks. It was a good fashion year for me; I cut my hair and I felt that I needed to dress this new ME. It seems appropriate to sum up the highlights of the year by sharing my top 13…

Last weekend I attended the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards giving ceremony in Kampala at the invitation of the organizers.  It was a short trip but a truly exciting experience since I not only took home the award for Fashion Writer of the Year (Africa) – for the second year in a row  – but also was called upon to co-host the red carpet together with the beautiful Ghanaian Actress Nana Akua Addo. I loved the amazing vibes of the whole event and enjoyed the stunning…

I got this dress made for a dinner party, but ended up pairing it with these flats for a brunch with girlfriends instead. It was one of those days when I didn’t want to leave the house since everything was getting a bit overwhelming. But then, thank God, I had those friends who wanted to cheer me up! Sometimes when I am stressed or sad I wear a happy colored piece, and during the course of the day my mood invariably shifts.  A bright dress like this…

I am sure you know that I love to dress up in statement pieces but on most days I want to sing a song of praise to ‘the simple dress” which can be adapted to virtually any situation or event, be it a shopping spree in the mall, a day in the office, a weekend in the country side, a lunch with friends, a party  – and yes even for chilling at home That is exactly how I felt when I saw this cute…

It happens to all of us now and then, and a few weeks ago I was the one to feel low in energy and generally uninspired.  And I decided to do something about it, and taking some days off to chill in beautiful surroundings seemed to be a perfect plan. So I set off to Diani at the Kenya coast south of Mombasa together with a few friends to enjoy a different environment in the beautiful Sultan saka house and get inspired and although I…

I’m just back from Nigeria where I spent some exciting days at the Lagos Fashion and Design Week (LFDW) and savored the amazing Nigerian fashion culture.  I also had the unique opportunity to work closely with some of the fashion and beauty professionals I have been admiring on the social media platforms from home. I had decided from the outset only to wear Nigerian brands as part of my networking process. So I didn’t bring much with me from Kenya but simply played it by ear.…

I love my home on the Kenya coast which is my refuge when I am able to leave my work in Nairobi behind me for a while.  But even here at home it takes a real effort to switch off and enjoy the beach and the nature around me.  So once in a while I allow myself a complete break away from the familiar surroundings to give my spirit space to rejuvenate itself for a day or two in total relaxation. This is exactly what I…

Back in my high school years I was a well-trained athlete winning many running competitions at various levels.  But as the years passed so did my enthusiasm for running and most other forms of physical exercise, and my fitness level dropped considerably.  However as part of my new healthy lifestyle, including a totally vegan diet which I adopted some three months ago, I wanted to make a real effort to keep fit, and since I never really cared much for going to the gym, I decided…

It was love at first sight when I stumbled across this top and print on a recent trip to Accra.  Yellow was the only colour available; not my first choice, but I decided to grab it and give it a chance. I paired it with my Bata Ngomas for a vibrant day look. I love my Bata Ngomas. They literally – and I do mean LITERALLY – go perfectly well with everything. In college I wore them all the time and I still own several…

I work from home half of the time. During these days in my home office, my preferred style is maxi dresses, and this dress is one I might wear, although strictly speaking it was meant for more spectacular moments.  It not only doubles up as a stylish and comfy outfit for home, but would also be great for a Sunday lunch with friends or a family picnic, on those days, I will throw on a pair of earrings and my comfiest sandals if I need to step…

Life has been busy these days – working and travelling full time, spending quality time with my daughter on her long summer holiday, and still leaving space for family, friends and me-time.  I admit that I do get a bit anxious and overwhelmed at times.

I’m just back from Accra, Ghana where I had an amazing time attending the Glitz Style Awards as well as the pre- and post-gala parties.  With all the glitz and glamour happening throughout the 2-3 days of the overall event and inspired by all the amazingly well dressed people who had congregated there from all over Africa and beyond, I felt free to express myself and totally enjoyed being able to experiment and try out the bold hairstyles and outfits. As you know, I have had sisterlocks…

I recently joined Sarahah  to see what the buzz was all about.  The app allows users to post their candid comments about me incognito, and I was surprised to discover that many people expressed their surprise over how sweet and kind I come across when they finally meet me in person – obviously implying that they assumed that I was a different kind of person, which I actually don’t think I am.  The response was overwhelming and even though this app has been exploited by some,…

It’s interesting how fashion always takes us back, constantly re-inventing itself. Wearing dresses over pants is one of those trends that could make you end up looking like a teenager of the 90’s. I layered a sheer mini gold dress over blue denims for a low key take to this look. Wearing dresses this way, not only gives you many new and exciting styling options for your dress but is also a fun way to wear dresses which are a bit too short and…

A classic pair of black pants is still an essential item in any woman’s (and man’s) closet. Designers have been getting super creative with cool new ideas, so whenever variations of black pants pop up, I am always more than excited to try them out. I remember seeing a pair of asymmetric extra flared trousers with some of my fave bloggers on Instagram, and I knew I had to get myself a pair. At the time, the only available options at the store I accessed were…

Walking the Cannes Film Festival is a surreal experience; I mean this is one of the biggest red carpets in the international film world. It was a dream come true and a very humbling moment.

I have always admired women in their prime with beautiful skin. They seem to be more confident and I believe a healthy and radiant skin has a lot to do with it.  I have been working on changing my skin care routine over the past few months and one of the things that I kept reading about, was the importance of frequent facials to restore the skins tone and moisture. I decided to ditch my DIY home facials and get a pro one.

I think it is harder to love yourself than others. I always found it so much more natural to give rather than to demand, to make more time for others than I do for myself. But if you don’t love yourself, then your love for others will just be a way for you to make others meet your emotional needs.  To love yourself means accepting who you are with your flaws and weaknesses. This is not always easy, but to accept these things is very…
