Spring Tulle Skirt: Thumbs up or down?

Wednesday, February 22, 2017










If you’re not into all that silk glossiness, why not try one of those ballerina-inspired tulle skirts this spring instead! Yup, tulle is said to make this upcoming season incredibly feminine in that wearable type-of-way. My inner ballerina-wannabe wants to wear this sassy maxi skirt on repeat. Isn't it pretty?

What do you think? Could you pull it off?

P.S: Let's tutu...
P.P.S: Real ballet shoes for the street?

Kenya’s Slum Ballet




This melts my heart! Every Wednesday after school hours, the Spurgeons Academy located in Kibera transforms into a ballet studio where students sweep the floor in preparation for their class with Mike Wamaya. This wonderful guy teaches those local kids the beauty of movement, the art of dance and enriches their imagination like no one else! It’s mind-blowing to see that in places with so little resources, wonderful things like this can happen too...

P.S: The power of ballet and ballerina's legs.
P.P.S: Where children play.

Minimal Striped Nails



Here is a top tip for those of us who love sporting a fancy manicure, but are hopeless at it.

Go the easy (yet totally genius) route of painting your nails with your favourite base coat, then apply some striping tape on top and finish it off with a top coat to keep everything in place. It truly doesn't get easier than this, plus the end result is totally impressive. Here is the full how-to if you fancy giving this manicure a go.

P.S: Sassiness on another level.
P.P.S: Plus, this nifty trick to prevent your nail polish from chipping.

Skin Deep

Thursday, February 16, 2017



Wow! To say that Steve Rosenfield's photo series is powerful is an understatement!

This rather brilliant photographer has an ongoing project where he captures individuals as they reveal their innermost insecurities and tell us their deepest desires. Over the past 7 years, Rosenfield has taken thousands of images in hopes to empower people and remind them that one's happiness should not be dictated by others' impossible standards.

Thought-provoking and important, don't you think?

P.S: Healing soldiers.
P.P.S: We are lucky.
