Day 9: Kids’ Couture

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…

Day 8: Backyard Shoez

Before we get down to business, I would like to apologise for not keeping my word with regards to announcing the winners yesterday at 3:00pm. Also, it is my wish that my posts go out at exactly 6:00am but that has not…

Day 7: 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…

Day 6: Toto Wraps

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….

Day 5: Collabor Active Wear

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…

Day 4: 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….

Day 3: My Kids Couture

Over the weekend, I travelled to Nakuru for an extended family gathering that was taking place at my folks house. It was just myself and the younger one, Xia. The older one -Xena- and the dad were in Mombasa for a friend’s…

Day 2: Toto Wraps

My kids have been quite independent right from birth, in the sense that except for the few days they suffered from colic, they did not need to be constantly swayed or carried on the back. Nonetheless, there have been many moments when I…

Day 1: His & Hers Scents

The year was 2012. It was a random Saturday afternoon and I was hanging out at my then boyfriend’s place. We were sprawled on the couch, watching the movie Pearl Harbour. About ten minutes into the movie, this guy wowed…

Hong Kong In Five Days: Part One

Friday, 24th November  14:56: A wonderful scent wafts through the air, redolent of rice and noodles. It reminds me of my favourite Chinese restaurant back at home. Ironically though, most of the staff have masks covering the lower half of…

Lilmissbelle - Hong Kong

Repose: Postcard from Hong Kong

It’s 11.00am in Hong Kong. I woke up about 45 minutes ago, dashed downstairs for breakfast which was quite prosaic. But even if they had a buffet befitting a queen, it would have been wasted on me because I am suffering a bad…

Travelling Light

I am no guru in this field, in fact I struggle with traveling light more than I struggle to open a Dasani water bottle. However, I learnt a few tricks recently. I really wished I could only travel with carry…
