Kenyan Fashion Bloggers: All White for Peace in Kenya!

Hey guys. Today's post is in collaboration with my fellow Kenyan fashion bloggers. This post is very dear to us all as we chose to dedicate this post to the families, friends and loved ones affected by the Garissa killings earlier on in the month.
We chose an all white ensemble because we all stand for peace!

 Gabrielle {Tribe of Chic}
 Michelle {Elenee}
 Ms. Kibati {Ms. Kibati}
 Mumbi {Mumbi Shokey}
 Silvia {Style By Silvia}
 And me. Hubby took some pictures and there were some that I was smiling in. But for some reason, I selected this specific one for this post because it is a true reflection of how I feel about the Garissa (and other) attacks. I am pained. My condolences to all those affected.

I pray for Kenya, where we are united and not divided based on our social differences. May we reach within to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive; love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed. May we also never forget the ones we lost. #147NotJustANumber

Pretoria & Cape Town, South Africa!

Hey guys, well still on the travel note, I was in SA two weeks ago for work. I was extremely busy but I managed to take a few pictures. I stayed at the beautiful Courtyard hotel Arcadia, in Pretoria for a couple of nights. I really loved its rustic feel plus its interesting that the house is over 100 years old! I was also in Johannesburg and later on went to Cape Town (Muizenberg) for the day (Literally just 10 hours!! I really wanted to stay longer). Anyway, I hope to go back soon. Just, a few pictures...

Top 5 Suggestions:

1. Visit District 6 Museum for a historical context of forced removals in Cape Town {or any other historical/ cultural site}
2. Enjoy their local cuisine {E.g. Biltong or if your luck enough, go for a braai}
3. Shop in the local markets {For xhosa jewellery etc.}
4. Shop at major malls e.g. Menlyn Park in Pretoria or Nelson Mandela Square in Johannesburg
5. Buy a souvenir! {E.g. fridge magnets, masks, postcards etc.}

Have a productive week ahead!
