Of Life’s Lessons – My Life Is Not My Own

I have been a tad too quiet. Studies have taken over my life. I am not complaining though… Totally worth my while.

Every once in a while, you read something that stops you in your tracks and has you thinking. This article was it for me. I read it over a month back and have been meaning to share it with you. Continue reading

DIY Project – My Gratitude Mason Jar

The 40th weekend of Njaanuary. A warm, sunny Saturday. A perfect day for a DIY.

I got this gratitude jar idea from my very good friend (I know, I know. I’m starting to sound like I am making up all these “my friends” stories). I went ahead and bought my mason jar in preparation for this challenge.

GIYF. For real! Google is certainly your friend. I came across these beautiful jars and I was like ‘boring gratitude jar for who’?

Artsy Pantsy – Fake It Till You Make It

I can picture Michelangelo laughing. Yes, laughing at me.

My friend had the opportunity to see Michelangelo’s 14 ft marble masterpiece depicting the Biblical hero, David. Let’s just say, we’ll never hear the end of it. 😀 But really, from the pictures, and all the tales from her trip to Italy, that fellow’s work was spectacular! Continue reading

Lord Egerton’s Castle – Adventures In Kenyaland II

A story is told, of a man who out of love and lots of passion, went through hell and high water to impress one lady to whom he wished to become engaged. No, there is no happily ever after. The man is left bitterly spurned. Oh the things that love makes us do!

This is the story of Lord Maurice Egerton Tatton, the fourth and last Baron Egerton of Tatton (1874 – 1958).

After our tummies were full, we headed out. About 14 kilometres from Nakuru town, lying on a 100-acre piece of land, stands this magnificent, architectural masterpiece set on expansive, lush lawns.

Nairobi Java House, Nyali – Home Is Where The Cake Is

I don’t have a sweet tooth. Well at least that is the lie I tell myself daily. I just love cake, and where cake is, there my home shall be. Feel me?

Save for this ↑ cake, I love Java because of a number of things. The gourmet coffee, freshly prepared meals, yummy pastries, the accommodative menu, free wi-fi…etc etc. I say accommodative because you are not stuck with an option of french fries and a burger once when you get here.

Osteria Del Chianti, Malindi

In the middle of our hustle and bustle, my colleague and I found ourselves down Vasco Da Gama road in Malindi, and decided to make a quick stop at Osteria Del Chianti to see what we could grab as we were in between meetings.

Though the patio has views of the Indian Ocean, I felt that they could do a bit more with the space. Continue reading

DIY Project – As Cute As A Bow

DIY projects excite me! You can literally bring so much to life with a few materials and a couple of YouTube tutorials. 🙂 Not only is it rewarding to complete a DIY project, but it also helps you save money and it is always fun creating something new.

When a friend asked for ideas for her wedding cards (you’ve gotta love a hands-on bride), I was more than glad to help. The initial idea was that we would print out the cards and have the bow design embossed on there. However, that did not quite pan out how we had envisioned and we therefore had to personalize the cards by adding the bows on each and every card. Continue reading
