Red...

Hello lovelies!

Just a few days to Christmas and red is just the colour for the season, it's so rich, vibrant and festive. Are you feeling festive yet? it's also just a few days to the end of the year, time to reflect on the year we just had, and plan for the coming year, time for new resolutions or the same old ones if you never got around to achieving them cause you forgot all about them by mid- January LOL...better luck next year!

Falling leaves...


A white Blazer is a wardrobe essential you simply can not live without, and I have been looking for one for quite sometime so when I saw this one at Max Msasani I almost did a dance, it's just perfect! it brings my looks together so easily and gives them that polished expensive look.

Feeling some "Taupe" way...


Hello lovelies,


It's another beautiful week! Counting down to Christmas!! For some reason this Christmas isn't so appealing to me, because am going to be working right up to Christmas, I'm worried if I will have enough time to get some shopping done for the kids, decorate the house, I'm heavily pregnant, it's too damn hot, that I don't even want to go outside. Hopefully by the time I get the house decorated I will be feeling the Christmas spirit, I always feel good whenever I see a beautiful Christmas tree. Though I do wish I was somewhere cold and  freezing.

Wishing you all an awesome blessed week ahead!!

Ankara Fridays...

Hello lovelies,

As you know on casual Friday's we bring out our best Ankara outfits for work. Now if you follow me on instagram then you already know that when I was on my extended break from work, I took a short sewing and designing course at VETA, although I didn't exactly finish it and the course was lacking in so many things especially the designing part, I learnt a lot. I can now use a sewing machine, cut easy patterns, make simple clothes for myself and my daughter whenever I feel like it, boy clothes are hard but I can repair them and do minor adjustments. 
This skirt is one of the things I have made myself so far and am so proud of how it turned out, it took me about four hours from cutting to finish. I no longer have to deal with Fundi waswahili and wait for a month for a skirt, while I can make it on my own in a couple of hours free of charge. I do wish I had time to practice more often but with work it's getting harder but God willing next year you might even see me at Swahili Fashion Week as an upcoming designer if I ever get my act together and decide that designing is where my heart is, I see myself as more of a stylist than a designer but I'm also willing to spread my wings and not put myself in a particular box. 











I'm wearing: Shirt ~ Old (got it in China four years ago, still my favourite), Skirt ~ Made by me, Bag ~ Newlook via Asos, Heels ~ Newlook via Asos, Lipstick ~ Oriflamme

Have a great weekend!!

Tail Feathers...

Hello lovelies!


Hope you had a great independence day, did you join the neighbourhood cleaning!? Or you had to go to work!? I'm honestly impressed with the Tanzania am seeing these past few months, things are changing for the better and I pray they stay that way, I'm not and never have been a political person, I only get political every time I see my payslip and see that huuuuge chunk that gets cut as Tax and that makes me bitter as hell, the President has promised things will get better and that for a change honest hard working Tanzanians won't have to bear the burden of the economy while the dishonest few get richer and richer not paying taxes etc etc.


Now enough with serious talk, lets talk fun fashion!! This week am serving you some of my favourites, and this black and white outfit is definitely one for the books. When I found this Tuxedo with tails jacket in one of my thrifting adventures I was thrilled!! it's so much fun and so over the top! I got the tuxedo shirt from my hubby, who didn't want it anymore, to complete the look and you should have seen the look of surprise and amusement on my colleagues faces LOL...

Mellow Yellow...

Hello Tuesday,

looking forward to the day-off tomorrow!? I know I am! though with the presidential decree that we must go and clean our town, I have this deep fear that I'm going to be sleeping in and hear some police knocking on the door, demanding we go out and clean the street or something LOL! not necessarily a bad thing though...should be interesting. 



Okay, this kanekalon hair is the bomb.com!

On the dotted line...

Hello dolls,

Hope you had a great weekend, I sure did! This weekend was all about me and my family and was so relaxing, It put me in a good mood to start the week, and I hope this good mood last all week. I'm sending you dolls warm fuzzy feelings so that your week is good and productive cause well, we need the bread LOL, so you better get moving! and incase you needed work wear inspiration, I got you!





This is my favourite type of skirt, fitted and long past my knees, I feel taller and slimmer when I wear them as opposed to a short miniskirt, although I do wear minis every once in a while, I prefer this type of skirt best.



The hair is crotchet Jumbo Braid, Kanekalon, it blends very well with my hair and has a very natural feel that most people always think it's my own hair. I will be showing how I do this in my upcoming Youtube Channel so stay tuned for that!





I'm wearing: Blouse and Skirt ~ Thrifted, Necklaces ~ from Kkoo accessories shops, Bag ~ Pieces via Asos, Shoes ~ Asos

Have a blessed week everyone!
