While half of Nairobi migrated to the coast, we spent Christmas like we have done in the past five years. In Kericho at Xena’s paternal grandfolks home, surrounded by tea, trees and love, the weather unusually warm and rousing and…

Whoop whoop! It’s day 12 guys!!! This has been  the most hectic December in my entire life. Usually, I am always about chilling and taking it easy. But this time round, I took cognizance of the immense growth that my…

Between picking up the shoot items in Westlands and picking up my ride or die (Xena) from home, I found myself running late by an hour! I ended up leaving my house at 1:00pm for a meeting that was scheduled…

Lilmissbelle - His & Hers Scents

Several times, I have walked into an empty lift at 7.30am at work into this musky and exotic scent. It always makes me want to hang around there longer than I should. More importantly, it bugs me that I have not been…

Growing up, I remember how shopping for Christmas clothes was something that my siblings and I looked forward to. We would catch a matatu from a place called Davishon in Njoro to Nakuru, an 11 kilometre journey that took about half an…

Lilmissbelle - Instyle Shoes

There is this fashion sense that has fast crept into the shoe space, one that I had totally refused to embrace. I don’t know about you but when I think of pearls, I imagine them on my neck or hanging from my ears and…

It’s 5:30am on a Saturday morning. I was in bed by 10:00pm last night and could not wait for dawn. I slept like a toddler on Christmas eve, anxious about what toys I would find under the chimney in the morning….

There’s this time I left the house at 5:30am in a resplendent green Under Amour hoodie, ankle length tights and Adidas Cloudfoam sneakers. It was freezing cold with a possibility of a cloudburst so I had to be warm, much…

Lilmissbelle - Nyama Mama

I doubt if there are many five-year olds in town who are as busy as my daughter Xena during this school holiday. She got home on Monday at 11:45pm from Mombasa, a trip she went along with her dad for three days….
