You Are A Work Of Art

Today, going forward, make your bed work for you. Whatever hardship, whatever obstacle, whatever doubt…make it work for you. Hold on to your Faith. May it be bigger than your fear. Do not limit God. A deep sense of belief in yourself is everything, & it absolutely can be cultivated.

Masters Graduation Week

She’s magic, this one Last week was certainly one of, if not my best of the year so far. I spent it in one of my favourite places, celebrating an exciting milestone and getting some much needed away time. I decided against vlogging mostly because I wanted to be as

June Faves

Six months. Halfway into 2017. Where on earth is the time going? I love the idea of monthly blog reflection: Candids from the last month; from people to experiences to pictures to items. Favorites only, because good vibes are all the hype and should be celebrated. Madaraka Day Brunch: When your

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

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

Quarter Life Crisis

Adulting is not easy… but you already know that. I’m at the quarter life crisis stage. From what I have read, it happens somewhere between your mid 20s and early 30s. My transition from university to being a working adult has been unsettling. Life just seems harder than it’s been; not

Happy Is She Who Likes Herself

I have this pretty necklace with my name on it, in Arabic. I got it as a 19th birthday gift from one of my first friends in uni and immediately loved it! At the time though, there was a lot of building tension, with regard to national security.  So much

Thriving Past Self-Disappointment

One of the toughest situations I have had to deal with, and seek strength to get through, is disappointing myself. Ne-Yo and Cher LLoyd sang it perfectly: “it’s like falling down, and everyone’s watching.” The journey involves inevitable bumps. It just so happens that these are sometimes a result of

Single on Valentines

Guys, guys, I’m on YouTube!! I mean, you already knew that, I’ve had my own channel for a minute now which, if you haven’t checked out, please do and subscribe here! I promise to work on the frequency of videos. My friend Barbara and I have been meaning to start

Five Things To Do in February

Aaahh, the month of love. It’s here. For romantics like myself, this is the month we get a free pass to indulge in all things love: from books, to music, to movies. Literally, me all year round, but it’s nice to have (at least) one month of universally recognised allowance

Freedom in 2017

Have you ever really thought about time, and how valuable it truly is? Oh, where are my manners: HAPPY NEW YEAR guys, lasses, readers, lovers and friends! It feels so good to be writing again. When it comes to my art, it’s been/is the real bumpy ride. Spilt milk, really.

2016: What A Year!

Woah! How is 2016 already coming to a close? I know I am not the only one who feels like I blinked in January and voila, it’s December! 2016 has been, my most intense, transitional and incredible year. So many motions I am experiencing as I reflect on the last
