Blonde Ambition: From Brunette to Blonde Hair


The last time I had a major change to the mop on my head was when I was 10 years old. My Dad took my Sister and I to the hairdresser ahead of his big Fortieth Birthday party. My mom was busy running around sorting out last minute arrangements so we went to the hairdresser with my Dad with long dark hair that reached our elbows. It was meant to be a blow-dry so we would look good for Dads birthday party. Instead we came back looking like celery sticks. Both my sister and I had gone rogue and cut…

Gingham Style & the Maasai Shuka Blanket


I’ve been channelling various characters from the Wizard of Oz lately. From sporting the scarecrows short blonde locks, and recently, Dorothy’s pinafore checks. My excitement was through the roof when I first picked up this Gingham red and white checked dress. The loose fit over the body and arms was a floaty dream come true. I was eagerly talking about this new purchase with two of my nearest and dearest friends. Harping away, preaching, monologuing on about how it had been a while since I had worn checks, and had never really been a fan of the trend. This time,…

Pom Poms & Prints


Forget taking the tube, the over ground or maybe even the bus on your next journey into central London….how about a camel? The most insane PR request I ever heard from a friend, who worked in the business, was one from a wealthy businessman from the Middle East, who wanted to shut down Oxford Street, so he could take his wife down the road on a camel. Ludacris you may think, or absolutely crazy in love and totally romantic. Either way, I could have done with one a few weeks ago when the sun was shining hot like the desert…

Denim Kimono Jacket: Styled Three Ways


How many times have you seen a fashion bloggers desk, or coffee table and the famous book “How to Dress Parisien?” stands off the table, atop of Tom Ford, Chanel and many other covetable hard book fashion bibles? The point is, we all want the chic, trendy and zoh fabulous look of the French! So my question is, if I wear clothes by French brands…am I half way to trendy Parisien style? When I found this beautiful Denim jacket by Maje in the Summer Sale, it got me a stone throw away from Paris.A summer classic and staple is and…

Fashion Basics: The Brilliant White Blazer


You know that totally smug look that creeps onto your face when deep down inside you know you are right about something…and your face can’t hold back? Kind of like the Grinch who stole Christmas? The big grin across his face. Well I had that look plastered across my face a few weeks ago when perusing some of the high street chains on Oxford Street. Store after store had blazers in a variety of colours. Pink, Yellow, Printed Orange…a variety that could rival an ice cream shop. I have been a huge fan of Blazers to dress up and dress…

Searching for the Stars in Sequins


I like plain basic clothing. A basic white or black t-shirt, with a comfortable pair of jeans; A loose-fit slip on pair of trousers with an over-sized shirt. But every once in a while, I like to flirt with colours, prints and patterns. There’s this thing I have about stars. I’m from Kenya and one of my favourite things about home is looking at the stars when you’re sitting on the soft white sands on Diani Beach with the sound of the waves splashing against the beach. You can’t miss a star… the night sky is speckled with them and…

Wasted on the Rooftop of Selfridges


I stumbled bottle in hand through the fire exit to the rooftop of my fashion favourite store, Selfridges, cue theme music, back up dancers…oh hello musical number. It would make for a great start to a movie, right? Instead of Chicago, they can call it London. But that isn’t what this is all about. Late last year on a quiet Friday night, where I had promised myself an early night so that I could make it to the 9am Spin Class on Saturday, I flicked through the various docu-series on Netflix. I was going to watch an episode of something…

Thunder Thighs & The Playsuit


I’ve always wondered what goes through a persons mind when they name call and bully another person. Does it validate something in that person’s life? Either way, it’s down right horrible, and a true reflection of that persons character, and not your own. I was about 10 years old in Prep School when I remember a ruffled hair, blue-eyed boy in my class turn around and call me “Thunder Thighs!” I wasn’t fat or large, just one of the taller girls in my class and remember being very upset. Thinking about this the other day… had me in giggles! THUNDER…

One Night in Luxury: Finch Hattons, Kenya


I am convinced that anyone who visits Kenya and experiences all that it has to offer will fall in love and forever be tied to its wild, charming and endearing spell. This isn’t a blanket statement, but one that stems from the rich history of Kenya when Denys Finch Hatton, a legendary British aristocrat visited Kenya in 1911 and left his heart in the wild. He fell in love with Kenya and its wildlife, became a famous photographer and conservationist, and introduced the British Royalty and business tycoons to experience the magic of Kenya with his luxury safaris. While I…

Colour Blocking & Coffee Shops


I’ve always been in awe of the ladies who can mix and match colour combinations and styles together without a worry in the world. Say ankle socks with sandals. Striped t-shirts under pinafore dresses. Bright blue and Sea green…pink and yellow. Ok, so pink and yellow reminds me of the well-toned, gym-honed legs of Big Bird from Sesame Street. But clearly, what would I know about colour blocking and colour clashing when my comfort zone rarely ventures out of black, navy, white, beige and grey! Spring Summer 2017 is all about the colour clash- Balenciaga, Givenchy, Celine, and Topshop Unique…
