King Bey strikes again.

Beyonce told us that she is having twins because whatever the project even if it’s creating life, she must top herself with every new attempt. After she posted a series of images on her site, where Blue Ivy blesses her mummy’s belly, Beyoncé hangs out in water and surrounds herself with a bunch of lucky flowers. While the aesthetic is wonderful it is far from random, the shoot is titled ‘I Have Three Hearts’ after a Warsan Shire poem.

Marc Jacobs Broke My Heart

Yes, the dreads are upsetting, but it did not end there.

When I first saw the pictures of the S/S 2017 runway show, I scoffed and was prepared to part with some respect  for the designer. In my opinion, Marc Jacobs is a great designer. Jacobs seems to always manage to be playful and startling but not at the expense of elegance so I was disappointed to see this. The use of mainly white models in dread locs to me read like a cheap grab at publicity, which happens all the time in fashion.

The end of the series!

A short story about love & all its different, vengeful, misunderstood, misinterpreted & selfish ways!

Chapter 6/6 🙂



Said no

(Why on earth did I say no?)

Told her to stay put

Instead I’ll go

Put my cape on


Decided to save a ho

(After all she was mine)

I felt the need to be your hero

Despite every time

You treated me like a zero

Maybe underneath all anger I still cared

Maybe this was the quickest way to get you out of my hair



Truth is

I haven’t felt like a man in a while


I wanted to set an example

For my unborn child

(I needed some way to clear my conscious)

The constant regret was making me nauseous

You gave me a hug


A kiss from Judas

That should’ve been a sign

Why I shouldn’t…

A Broken Buying Culture.

Colonial hangover + Unethical Pricing = Mediocrity

In 1964 Kenya began to enjoy freedom. However, today we still live in a haze of mental slavery. You see it with a server at the ‘upscale’ cafe who serves the foreign looking table with a speed and enthusiasm distinctly missing from the table with faces too close to their own. Or at ‘it’ pseudo intellectual gatherings where the foreign needle eye opinion is hailed as absolute by locals who should know better.The driving force behind Kenyan culture remains largely external and rarely self-determined.

4 Women in Fashion You Should Look Up.

Their careers shaped the fashion landscape we see today.

  1. Coco Chanel

Today the fashion house is under the care of Karl Lagerfeld, and is considered a marker of wealth and luxury. But it began in 1913 when Coco Chanel had the fabulous idea to create women’s clothing from jersey fabrics (at the time used for men’s underwear). Coco Chanel made women’s clothes that were more sporty and casual (yet chic) and as a result spearheaded the shift from the corseted silhouette.
