FOUR YEARS NATURAL!

 

Oh my! It has been four years since I started the natural hair journey and today am not celebrating hair length. No! Today , i’m just happy that I have never looked back, that I have fallen deeply in love with my hair, that I have inspired someone to take care of their hair and love it as well. Today, I celebrate the health goals I have achieved. I celebrate myself for starting a platform to inspire women with natural hair, like you who is reading this. I’m happy because a journey I started four years ago has opened so many doors for me (and many more to come ;-)) and I pray that I become a more resilient person, more persistent, more open to try new things, just like my natural hair has taught me. So cheers to many more 🙂 and thank YOU for the support this far.

Love,

Margie

A HEART OF GRATITUDE & A PINCH OF KINDNESS

I am definitely obsessed with floral pieces because I genuinely believe that what I wear reflects my mood- floral makes me feel happy, delighted, aware of my environs, grateful to be alive. This week, I read BikoZulu’s recent article, “There were birds, but they didn’t sing” and that piece not only broke my heart that such evil exists in the world 🙁 , but it also made me appreciate the little things I have taken for granted- the freedom of choice, the gift of life, the freedom to do what I want, to own what I want.

Cornrows 103

 

 

 

Once again, I saw a cornrow trend, I fell in love with it, and I tried it. 🙂 It took me a while before deciding to cornrow my hair because (1) I dreaded having my hair blow dried, and 2) I wasn’t sure if the outcome would be as good as I wanted. (See here the image I used to direct my salonist). So let me share with you what you may want to know about the process of achieving this look.

Kimono Life

Once in a while, certain fashion pieces catch my eye and I get the urge to share them on this platform with the hope that someone gets inspired (style-wise of-course). This Kimono statement is one of those pieces that I could not resist to share about.

IT’S WORLD AFRO DAY (WAD) 2017

Photography by Kenyan Story

I was very excited to hear about World Afro Day. (WAD). This, to me, meant that there is growing recognition of afro/textured hair not only in our countries, but across the globe. Today, 15th September, marks the inaugral World Afro Day. An event geared towards creating awareness and promoting appreciation for the the unique place of afro hair throughout the world will be held in London today. And even though you and I cannot attend this event, we can remain true to the purpose of this day by celebrating the value and beauty that is natural hair in kenya today.

This post is dedicated to any struggling naturalista out there; ANyone feeling inferior due to their hair texture, anyone undergoing discrimination at the work place or wherever they are because of their hair.

Street Style – Floral

My love for floral print has grown this year.  I guess it’s because flowers generally tend brighten up and give colour to life? We all need sunshine and colour in our lives and why not start with your outfit.  When feeling low,  cheer yourself up, wear something nice and colourful and hit the streets smiling.
