Butterflies in my tum tum

We learn something new from every single person that we have the pleasure or displeasure of interacting with. We get to know more about the other person, plus we get some insights about our own personalities from them.

Same thing goes for relationships, we learn a lot about ourselves from our interactions with members of the opposite sex, especially from failed relationships. There is a reason those relationships failed, and you partly or wholly contributed to it. It is up to you to learn from it, and use that information to grow into someone better.

Having never succeeded in any relationship forever alone lol  , I try my best to make sure I do not repeat my past mistakes. Sometime’s it is hard because I have to keep reminding myself what was wrong with my previous relationships so as to make sure I do not relive those moments again.

It is especially hard to remember those things when I meet someone new, and I am overwhelmed by excitement and a whole bunch of nerves. Thank God for this blog, because I can refer to it and refresh my memory. One thing’s for sure, I am ready to make it right..

They say that first impressions are very important, so naturally everyone wants to be nothing short of impressive. It takes a lot of work to make a lasting impression, be it in how you look or how you behave. Most of the time I am sure you will not be your usual self, but you will act in a manner which you believe the other party will find to be impressive. In the end, we all want to be liked.

So here I am, growing a bundle of nerves because I am about to meet someone new. It must be a whole lot easier just hooking up with a friend, who already knows all your faults and weaknesses, and accepts you for who you are. But nothing in life comes easy, in fact it is way more exciting when you do not know what is in store for you.

I leave you with this..

 

A lil bit of this, a lil bit of that

I really want to blog today so I am basically looking for inspiration anywhere and everywhere, but mostly from pictures 🙂

.

Here is a  sketch of one of my favorite rappers from the UK, Mr Tinie Tempah who is originally from Nigeria.

He was the one who first introduced me to the very talented Emelie Sande 2 years ago, with this song, which is one of the rare songs that mentions ‘me’. His album  Discovery was nothing but spectacular.

I cant figure out if this is candy or protection, I just know that I want them!

WTT

I am really glad this song came out after I had lost all my baggage, I feel sorry for whoever is going through heartbreak and has to listen to this.

Day by day people are coming up with new places to pierce, ears, tongues, noses are too main stream it seems. But this torso is all kinds of cool though.

I changed my mind, I wouldnt wanna be bitten by a vampire anymore. Sookie and Bella do not show how painful it is the day after lol

This year there has been so many cases of suicides in Kenya which is extremely sad and worrying. Life is precious, life is a gift, and no matter how horrible it may seem, there is so much to live for. If not for yourself, then for your loved ones. Killing yourself is the worst thing you could do to your family. There are people who love you and will be there for you, you are never alone, even though sometimes it feels like you are.

How hot is Pharell!!

let’s get blown

This is where I am at right now…

and finally, something for you to think about.

Have a superb day 🙂

TGIFridays!!!

Have A Fantastic Friday!!!

Obsessed with accessories

Ever since forever I have always been in love with accessories, be it rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, you name it and I will want it.

I have collected a whole bunch of accessories over the years, simply because when I spot something lovely it is difficult for me to leave it behind. The places where I like to buy stuff are Mr. Price, Woolworths, Identity, 4u2, Maasai Market, the numerous vendors in the streets of town and anywhere else, I do not discriminate.  I have a lot of gifted stuff as well from my family and friends, plus I occasionally raid my mother’s jewellery box, she had some cool pieces back in the day. I also make jewellery so a couple of pieces are my own creations like the long purple feather earring in the picture below.

Thought I would share with you some of my pieces and how I keep them. Maybe you guys can give me suggestions on how to store them better.

Big shout out to my dear friend Coloured In Sepia who got me this fantastic two sided jewellery holder which I love to death!! It has really helped when it comes to storing my earrings, and it has become sort of my mission to completely fill it on both sides. So as you can see, I keep my earrings there and my charm bracelets and my multi fingered rings.

I put up some hooks to hang my necklaces to prevent them from becoming a tangled mess. I think since I started making jewellery I stopped feeling the need to buy necklaces, but I have been spotting some really beautiful pieces that I must buy.

This hot mess is my accessory drawer, which has everything that cannot be hanged or fit into the jewellery holder. I keep my hair accessories here, and bangles, bracelets, crabs, and necklaces. It is not usually so untidy, I try keep them in old chocolate tins as a way of partitioning the drawer.

This was a gift box that I had lying around which I decided to use for my stretchy bracelets that I place on my dressing table.

I use the cover to randomly toss things in there when I am in a hurry or lazy -_-

I use this chocolate tray to store my cocktail rings, my favorite ring is the butterfly, I am kinda obsessed with anything with butterflies.

I keep my other rings in this jewellery box that ws gifted from my aunt. Excuse some of the oxidised rings ti hi hi hi. Some of them are clearly not real silver which I bought knowing that. But here is a tip for you, if you want to buy authentic silver pieces, always look for a small serial number etched into it.

I keep my random studs in this other gifted jewellery box from my cousin.

So there you have it, my jewellery collection at it’s best. If you were ever thinking of gift ideas for yours truly, now you know what my heart desires.

Feel free to share what you have in your jewellery collection too 🙂

Kisses and cookies,

The confused post

This right here is my song of the day, you can never go wrong with David Guetta and Jessie J murders it on the vocals, love it! I started the day with so much oomph, but this day has just gotten too manic -_-

Well, it is Tuesday now and the day isn’t looking any better. God needs to help me find my purpose right away because this aint cutting it!

My friend has this Joel Osteen book that I go read randomly whenever I go to see him. Today, I asked him for the book, and started shuffling through the pages as I told him about how I believe whatever page I open to read, will be God speaking to me. And indeed he did.

The book said that God did not want us dwelling on the negativity of the past, the shoulda, woulda, couldas. Forget about that failed relationship, that missed opportunity, that failing career. God has more in store for us, but he needs as to relinquish all that baggage in order for us to receive his new blessings. I found this greatly encouraging, even if I am not per se being dragged down by my past, but it really makes me look forward to my future. So if you are reading this, I hope this makes you as hopeful as I am about your future.

In other news, take a look at this picture below and let us ponder about it for a bit:

It is never really straight forward when it comes to this things lol. Which category do you fall under?

I think the absolute worst part about being single (yes, just the way people in relationships keep yapping about their relationships, I will yap about being single, because I am in a relationship with freedom :p) is that you find yourself compromising on your standards.

Anyhoo my point is, lack of attention will make you embrace whatever comes your way, no matter how the person it comes from looks like. Look who aint superficial no more? #growth

It is just Tuesday and so far it has been a rough week, to the point that I found myself anticipating bad things so that I get over the anger before it actually happens :-/ I have decided not to take all this so seriously so my afternoon has improved, and I hope my week improves too.

TGIFridays!!!!

Thank God It’s Friday!!!!

😉

It is raining all sorts of animals here in Nairobi, driving home last night was a scary experience, and the roads are in a horrible condition. Kibaki should just declare this rain a national disaster and let us stay home 🙂

I am excited about

rocking my fabulous dress tomorrow. The dress I made turned out amazing, I hope the sun shines so that I will not have to cover it up, if it does, I can always freeze and shine :p

Today I Am Feeling

wishy washy but generally just peachy.
