Green and Bold

bdcf4403-2d33-4986-80e5-30e8712bfebc-1One 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.24fd6311-9bc3-483a-a9c0-9c78c5d505c3-132f3bf7f-5419-42f3-ae9a-4b89fc64cfea-126ee26d5-9db4-46ba-82d2-472cfc317474-18b8777b3-5862-4d97-9608-570e5eb910b2

My Trip to Arusha

IMG_7282Arushaa!!!!! 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.

                  Lovelies,

A staple look for me in these warm months has been an off shoulder top as I mentioned in my Previous post,it’s simple,light and stylish at the same time.  I have a tendency of purchasing eccentric pieces especially dresses and skirts and am only able to wear them a few times,or on occasions. since they seem to catch everyones eyes or make them go..(oh my gosh!!! But you look good in that,why don’t u wear such often?)these are the pieces that I feel make my wardrobe unique! 

It’s so hard for me to make a choice on skirts mainly if they aren’t pencil and body hugging,but for this,I’ve eyed for a long time and wished it could join the other pieces that am going to exploit thoroughly 😂,I love me a good skirt and preferably a skirt that I can breath in. Imagine my excitement when I got this sky blue “front button midi skirt,Not only is it beautiful but also has pockets! What more could you ask for?! It was fun pairing my outfit today!

         Simple and timeless is key!

If you stay or have been in my country(Uganda) for the past 2 weeks or even today,you then know how hot it really has been,that’s among the things I love about my country,is it right for me to say it’s  always summer the whole year?😝😉

    
  
Anyway,The color of this suit is super luxe and sophisticated,it can make any one look good with out too much effort.  The color is definitely a great addition to the look.  The mesh inserts show skin in yet a simple way. A white swimsuit is the ultimate sexy poolside staple. 


Style tip: Many plus size women feel uncomfortable rocking a 2piece bikini for fear of showing the tummy. Worry no more, a high-waist 2piece bikini just made everything simpler,or perhaps,u could also add a throw-on,on ur bikini and feel more comfortable,that way it doesn’t seem like ur just wearing just a 2piece.

Anything but Basic

 
So one of the many things i love about style is that you get to make it personal. Wait, you knew that already because I’ve showed you that😛! The best part about that philosophy (and the shared belief amongst all real lovers of fashion) is that there is no one way to make a fashion statement.   


Perhaps I could do this little thing where i challenge you to take a fashion trend and interpret it in ur own style language. It would be fan,don’t you think?

Style tip: Since the dress has more of blue, accessorising it with More blue elements makes it simple and elegant.  There is something so effortless about  having just one color,it makes everything put👌🏾. And of course the ombré lip is the ultimate sophistication,it makes the lips look really big and full and fabulous. Style is effortless! #EffFashion
