LESO DRESS

I have always wanted a leso attire and when my Dan’s mum gave me this leso fabric during our introduction ceremony, I knew I’d have to make a dress out of it. Other than being bold and vibrant, the fabric is also good quality, best for making whatever you’d want. I did my research on various leso designs and this particular design was inspired by Chepkemboi of ownyourculture who has several leso pieces so check her instagram page for more inspiration.

I  had this dress made by  Chelagat House of fashion who other than being an awesome tailor, is also a talented designer especially with african pieces. A good designer would be able to cut the fabric uniquely and be able to decide which piece can be fixed at what angle. She also made my dress here and this african print inspired coat here. I think she did justice. What do you think?

SUIT UP! 6 TIPS TO ACE THE BAR EXAM!

The last time I had a proper suit on was when I sat for my Kenya School of Law Oral exams which, as I shared here, didn’t quit go well (but i still aced the bar exams in the first round!!). The next time I had to think of a suit was when I was preparing to be admitted to the bar. None of the suits I owned fit me due to weight gain (which I have totally embraced) and so I got in touch with a number of known suit makers in town. I settled for David of Shytess Fashion a week to the big day and other than his previous works, I was drawn by his energy right when he picked up my call. He made me laugh the first few seconds and I knew this was the guy who would make my suit! There is something about people with positive energy and meeting David came to be a blessing. In that one week he changed my perspective in how I view life. You would have to contact him to understand exactly what I mean..but for today, let me share with you 5 tips on acing those bar exams!

5 TIPS ON HOW TO BUILD YOUR SELF ESTEEM/CONFIDENCE

Thirteen  years ago, at the height of puberty, I could never look into the mirror without picking out ‘flaws’.

Flash forward to today, I look in the mirror these days and I can’t believe how in love I am with myself.  I am proud of the woman I’ve become.

CURLY WIG REVIEW || MAKEUPCLOUDE WIG ||+ HEADWRAP STYLES

 

It’s amazing how wigs have come in handy for me especially this year as I’m in a love-hate relationship with my hair. I am equally shocked at how open-minded I’ve become when it comes to embracing wigs. After making my afro wig, I decided to stop by makeupcloudke shop and invest in one as well. I tried out different types of wigs at the store, from straight wigs, to bob cut, to long wigs; but I still fell in love with this curly unit. I have rocked it for two months now and therefore this review is well informed.
