The Snare of Busyness

Have you ever been in or seen a relationship where one partner treats the other like an item on a list of things to do? He only meets her when he happens to be in the vicinity. She carefully fixes him into her schedule so she forgoes nothing when she is with him. He is constantly on his phone when they are on a date.…

Product Haul: 5 Natural Hair Cleansers

Hello lovelies!

I should start by saying that I’m NOT a natural hair guru. In fact, I’m far from it. I started this blog as a way to free mwananchi wa kawaida from my random hair conversations on the streets of Nairobi. Someone would say, “Your hair looks nice” and 5 hours later, they would still be listening to me going on about anything and everything hair-related.…

How Do I Hear God?

This has to be one of the most popular questions in the Christian circle. Many are the times that people who are young in the faith wonder how to hear from God. Those who are also older in the faith might ask the same question if or when God’s voice no longer seems as clear. How do you discern His voice?…

5 Oils for Natural Hair

I don’t know if it’s legal to be this under the weather in the first few weeks of the year. Sigh. Anyhuuuu… let’s go!

Hello lovelies!

Hear and Heed

Today when you hear his voice,
don’t harden your hearts…

Have you ever listened to someone without hearing them? I’m sure that most know the feeling from some conversations you had with your parents as a teenager. They would talk, sometimes for hours on end and you would leave the room clueless about everything that was said. It was as if you were deaf in the moment.

TWA Tips: Growing Out Short Natural Hair

Hello lovelies!

This week I’d thought that I would share some of the crazy things that have happened since I ‘went natural.’ My friend, on the other hand, was busy planning, packing and buying my ticket for the guilt trip she was about to take me on. Hehehe. (I still love you though). She said people with TWAs (teeny weeny afros) are sidelined: that we don’t cater to them.…

Natural Hair Trends we’re Ditching in 2018: A Lazy Girl’s Guide

Happy New Year lovelies!

Let’s get right into it.

If you are an ardent trend follower, then you must know that there are trends we definitely need to ditch in the New Year. Whether it’s make up, fashion, lifestyle, health or even our natural hair, the fact remains that we need to throw some things out the window.

Most people tend to jump on bandwagons, even ‘let’s ditch stuff’ bandwagons.…

Pray Without Ceasing

Allow me to add another goal/ desire or resolution to your list of things to do or change in the New Year: pray without ceasing.

On New Year’s Eve my friends and I were trying to request an Uber. I say trying because there was a whole discussion on the pickup location and the route to be used.  Somehow we ended up discussing how low the fares have gotten (relative to how much you used to pay for a cab about two years ago).
