February is a short month, but it’s got Valentine’s Day, the sexiest day of the year. Can you believe we’re already just a stone’s throw away from our next holiday?(how i wish it was). Valentine’s Day is a week away and there’s likely to be a last minute dash for gifts and restaurant bookings (not in for the struggle), I myself try not to get sucked into the commercialism of store-bought Valentines and overpriced set menus. There really is no reason why you can’t celebrate with your loved one in an intimate dinner at home – it does fall on a Wednesday after all! Guess am saying this because am not celebrating it.
Today isn’t one of those days where i get to runt all post,am here to share with you how i wear for the sweater weather(trying to make the chilly weather sound fancy), I’ve enjoyed a couple of cold-weather teasers the past days. Although the change of weather affects me, i love that i get to keep my sweater or jacket on all day long,oh Gosh! If you know me, you know how much my love for layering pieces is, and also, not being a fun of color blocking so you wouldn’t find me having more than 3 bright colors (don’t get me wrong if its your style), that should explain why most of my outfits are monochrome. Putting this outfit together was so easy thanks to Catchy classy that had me sorted out with these super soft and comfortable trousers,belt and bag, the free-size cozy rugged sweater has always been in archives for as long as a year, i added the belt to emphasize my waist and make my look edgy. My go to style for the chilly weather is blazers and sweaters. Feel free to let me know about yours in the comment box.Bag, Pants, and Accessories from Catchy classy

I figured something a lot of times these past months. There lots of things we absorb unknowingly on the internet that influence our thoughts, words and actions. In fact, there’s a criteria to live our lives that the the world has taught us that we have accepted unconsciously as the the only way to live. What if we realize we have been living life the opposite way, like what we think we were doing right is actually the opposite, the foods we were avoiding are actually the ones we are supposed to eat? Have you ever thought of that? Share with me your opinions in the comment box.
Fashion is a world of cornucopia( thought i should use that word) when it comes to new trends. Every season is filled with an abundance of so called “must have pieces that every girl should get“. Sometimes that overdose of advice can drive us either into a shopping frenzy resulting in bad buys or simply gives way to fashion sobriety. In exactly those moments of sartorial insecurity, it’s good to know you have a hero you can rely on: the won and trusted white Bottoms (Pants). The good news is you don’t need to be a certain type of fashionista to rock white pants, there are million of ways to style them. Though if you asked me about my absolute favorite way to work it into my style, I’d go for edging out femininely chic looks like this one. Let me know how you like to style your white pants and what you think of mine?

One of my favorite things to do is “social media stalking” (don’t know whether that qualifies as a hobby), so as i was stalking, I came a cross a life changing status on a friend’s whatsapp story on a “dying woman’s heartbreaking letter to the world“, (get it first class here Holly Butcher). She wrote it a day before she passed on. One of the things she mentioned in her letter was,”There will come a time and all the quotes, messages videos you see on social media that you read and ignore will make sense”,This to me was like a reflecting moment in my life. There so many times when I come across such stuff and not mind them, did it have to be from a dying woman for me to learn? There’s much to learn from her letter, It taught me never to take life for granted, Appreciate and respect everyone in my life, Utilize my time to do the things I love and most importantly, make time for God! My greatest mistake in 2017 was taking time off to figure out my blogging career. For something that I passionately adore, I must say, I honestly dozed off. Truth be told, even as i was off and thought I would research more and come back with better content, I got distracted and almost disappeared. It came to strike me later that instead of quitting for 12 months, I should’ve held on, continued with my work while doing research on how to better myself. Perhaps it was a breather for me to realize how important this is (consolation). We know, a creative mind shouldn’t be left redundant for it gets rusted and also, once time is lost, its never regained.
Now, Today is here, with me having learnt my lesson in Green, and gold Block heels filled with comfort and the confidence I have with my style like i never left (insert a wink emoji), Wearing extravagant Stripped Palazzo pants with almost ground flowing waist strings, an off shoulder top, Green double-breasted Blazer and corduroy patent leather shoulder/handbag ready for what ever comes my way.

Happy New Year!!!
Arushaa!!!!! What an experience. I wish I can describe this trip as good or bad but that’ll simply be impossible. I was there for a day but it was worthwhile. First off, you can’t dose off on the plane because of the beautiful scenery of the hills and their tallest mountains, Mt Kilimanjaro (Highest Mountain in Africa) and Mt Meru ( 5th highest in Africa). Secondly, there these Umbrella-shaped canopy trees that flower during the month of December, the locals call them Christmas trees that are planted at kilimanjaro International Airport and along the way that give you a warm welcome or wish you a safe flight to wherever your going.
For my one night, i stayed at the Beautiful Mount Meru Hotel, Arusha’s famous hotel also known as the “The Gem of Arusha”. The hotel blends stylishly elegant African architecture with supremely luxurious rooms and sparkling water gardens with beautifully landscaped gardens. I usually don’t fancy staying in a foreign country for long because its costly, i easily get bored and always want to get a reason to go back. But for this case, i was there to link up with a friend i hadn’t seen in a while, this was our only chance or at least meet after 6 months, and we weren’t gonna let that happen cos this time, we were closer to each other, also it was the festive season and i had to spend it with my family as it is a tradition. My very short stay at the hotel was incredibly nice because i got to use all the services something i never get to do because am always on the rush to step out and do other adventurous activities in the area. I really like Mt Meru hotel for its atmosphere. Nothing beats space/layout. You can choose to sit outside or inside and get two completely different atmosphere. My room at the hotel had a very beautiful view of Mt Meru. The service of the hotel is great and the people are warm. I would definitely go back to the hotel and spend more time, but with a photographer to capture my moments. The photos aren’t enough to show how beautiful the hotel is, with mind blowing views., Ever been to mt meru hotel, what do you think about it? Please share your views in the comment box below.

I have been MIA for the longest time, i don’t know whether this happens to every blogger or its just me but believe me, i needed sometime to figure out how to recreate my blog, apologies for not giving a notice that i would be gone for some time. But Lots of things been happening all this time I’ve been away, from grumbling about the mistakes i have made in my life, the opportunities i recklessly lost to the best moments and greater achievements, but well… lets keep the nitty-gritties for some other time.
There’s nothing more eye-catching than the color red, especially a long red dress! It’s classic yet bold, symbolizing love and romance.,there’s a hue to compliment every skin complexion. Red is one of those universally flattering colors! Red long dresses are extremely versatile and ideal for a variety of occasions. If you want to look sexy and stand out, consider a sleek, long red dress with a high leg-slit.Location: Golden tulip

Happy New Year!! We made it to see 2017. What a blessing! Although its cliché to say things like “new year, new me”, I always find a sense of renewal and inspiration whenever a new year rolls around. It’s just something about feeling like you’re starting fresh and with a clean slate that really motivates me to become better. After all, life is all about evolution and we should constantly be becoming better versions of ourselves anyway.
So let’s celebrate new beginnings! Whatever plans you have set for 2017, my hope and prayer is that you seek them and see those plans come to fruition. I encourage anyone that is thinking about starting something new to just go for it. Let’s make 2017 the year of action so that we can start to see the fruits of our labor. And of course, let’s make 2017 the most fashionable year yet!
