Lifestyle, Xena's chronicles

Pause. Reset.

July 31, 2018

“Mama, are you a footballer?” She cast a random question my way, something she loves to do lately. “No, are you?” “You know I am!” She says, in reference to the fact that I signed her up for soccer at…


Bali in nine days

July 24, 2018

If Bali was an adjective, it would define diversity. The serenity of its forested mountains, the spell binding charm of the waterfalls, the ferocity of its beaches, the enchanting vibe of its small restaurants and a culture of benevolence and…


How to travel Africa like the billionaire you are not!

July 3, 2018
Lilmissbelle- Zimbabwe

My first impression of Zimbabwe was Kenya in early 2000. Unrealistically expensive airtime and data, numbingly slow internet, dysfunctional systems (we still have those though) and a people that are unbelievably insouciant about it all. When I bought my local…

The First Time

Lilmissbelle- Valentine's Day

I was 19 years old the first time I ever went on a date. This guy was dynamite, but age has taught me that the definition of dynamite will continuously change as you grow older, wiser and your preferences change….

The Good Life

Lilmissbelle- MUA

She gave my face one last furry stroke, making me wish I was her canvas for a living. She then whispered, “You can now look.” Much as I was curious about the transformation, I wanted to sit there in complete…


The Gate Pass to Heaven

Lilmissbelle- Seychelles

You know how I know Kenya Airways is at a dead-end? Their check in crew are bitter half the time and will take out their bitterness on innocent passengers at the drop of a coin. “Where is your VISA?” yet…

Lilmissbelle-Halong Bay

I was going to write a feature about my surprisingly exhilarating experience in Seychelles but my mind feels like a clogged sewer. It’s 11:00pm on Monday evening and my personal trainer Brian expects to see me at the gym in…
