Spring (Cleaning): Why, What, How

Aaah, the joy of Spring...cleaning! As a recovering hoarder, only recently have I started to enjoy spring cleaning. It not only makes looking for clothes in the morning a lot easier, but also helps me think clearer and creates room for stuff I cherish as opposed to stuff that I have settled for. When I… Continue reading Spring (Cleaning): Why, What, How

It's a new year: I love new beginnings...especially when they come packaged as a different last digit to the date for the… Continue reading January Faves

Twenty Four, Twenty More (Reminders For Your Twenties)

I am officially 24 years old! I can't quite remember the last time I was THIS excited for my birthday. It must have been my 7th. A lavish celebration at Intercontinental Hotel, Nairobi.

Once upon a time, I did not have a full time job and wasn't required to be a full time adult. No complaints, no excuses, just facts. Disclaimer: I'm working on… Continue reading Best Five: Self Affirmations

This Thing, Hope

I just read this post by Biko Zulu. I normally leave recommendations until the end, but I am too moved not to have it here. Plus it gave me inspo for this post; I think it is only dutiful. I have been thinking lately, "I don't want to forget what is important." I wrote about… Continue reading This Thing, Hope

A Reminder: When it gets difficult

It's raining. I love the rain. Out here in these smart streets, they call me a pluviophile. I am a pluviophile. A pluviophile whose life is dealing a crash course on a number of lessons. I'm ultimately really grateful. Things could be worse. That, and there is hope tied to the process of sharpening. It's… Continue reading A Reminder: When it gets difficult
