Too Cool For School!

June 23, 2016
Lilmissbelle -Too cool for school

It’s been exactly one month since we last interacted over here. I have been trying to find a formula that would enable me strike a sound balance between work, family, play and hustling but I am yet to find one. Truth be told, there’s also been a little bit of laziness involved and a lot of binge watching of shows. Speaking of which, am I the last one to have caught the Game of Thrones fever? Well now you know what has been consuming the bulk of my extra time.

That said, a one month break from blogging is more than any blogger could ask for, otherwise a much longer break should have one start to wonder whether they truly enjoy writing at all. I know I love to write, heck my entire life revolves around writing. And most importantly, Xena loves to shoot. So trust me we are here to stay.

And with those few remarks, ladies and gentlemen, Xena and I are about to make up for our absence in a big way. I promise you may even get bored of us because we will be all over the place, so much so your eyeballs may just end up consuming nothing but feeds from Lil’missbelle 🙂

To start with, we will be having guest kids (both male and female) on our platform once in a while in a bid to diversify our kids fashion and lifestyle reviews. For today’s post, meet Johari, a bubbly four year old child with the most hilariously cute expressions I have come across. He loves cycling, swimming and playing soccer. He also has an amazing fashion sense and loves colorful clothes which was quite inspiring and challenging at the same time when I was trying to create a sense of uniformity between his outfits and Xena’s for the shoot.

Secondly, we will be launching a campaign on the 4th of July showcasing Kids Fashion & Accessories retailed or made in Kenya. We are really excited about this initiative and more details will be out soon.

Finally, Major Key Alert (I just had to use that, I find DJ Khaled insanely hilarious), we have scored a new partnership whose details I cannot wait to share with you!!! This was one of those deals that seem so far fetched until I finally received a confirmation email! You know dealing with corporates is a daunting task and you can never really celebrate until you have signed on the dotted line. Look out for Monday’s post for more details.

Did I mention that its been a year since we started this journey? Thank you so much for being a part of it and because of you, we are where we are now!

Those photos are soooo cute. That dude got some serious swag! (kwanza hio pose) I think I noticed Xena being all so girly & kidogo less diva, then straight to tom-boy. This one is a hard one to keep up with.
