    Favourite Videos & Music from July;

    I started listening to gospel music again. I love the feeling of pure peacefulness that comes with listening to a gospel track and Hillsong United manages to put me in that place each time.

    My FAVOURITE song from hillsong united.I have listened to this song more than the required amount of times allowed to listen to a song. I am still not tired of it , that shows you how amazing it is. What is your favourite hillsong united song?

    I have been stalling to finish reading Lean in by Sheryl which i plan on doing this month,inshallah.If you are like me then watch this video and get inspired to maybe also read the book.

    A video posted by kat irlin (@kat_in_nyc) on

    Kat is the epitome of *sensationalism. I don’t think there’s any other photographer alive i love more than **her. The way she takes and edits videos and pictures is pure perfection, she has the best eye for detail and each video of hers along with the background music brings some emotional feeling into me. Follow her , you will not be disappointed.

    I am back to listening to this masterpiece. it is a beautiful song and my young sister is hooked on it too.

    I have known and listened to her music since 2011/2012. The fact that she sings so beautifully and she is now back in  Nairobi just shows that i am destined to meet her .I can and i will find her and hear her sing live. *Speaking things into existence ladies and gentlemen*

    Books : I have managed to finish only one book in july,”SUSHI FOR BEGINNERS by Marian Keyes“despite not having a phone i figured i would have more time reading but i did not make time for another book but this month i am planning to finish Lean in by Sheryl Sandberg, Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and I am MALALA by Malala Yousafzai.


    IMG_9810TWO BUCKLED BELT ; Despite the fact that i have not worn it even once,”waiting for the right outfit to come through” i still like it plus it was gifted to me by a close friend.

    CHANEL BOY BAG : THRFIT GODS LOVE ME. Although when i got it the chain was missing so i replaced it with another belt chain.

    LAVY NAIL POLISH: I love this nail polishes for so many reasons, one it being owned by a Tanzanian woman”Flaviana Matata” and second, i love nude and white what’s not to love? They also stay for a long time and do not chip. I can not wait for the Lavy GEL nail polish coming this month.

    WATER JAR: I was telling a friend two weeks back about how i could go days without drinking water and the look on his face just told me, “You need to drink more water you weirdo“. He also  motivated me to drink more water with what he said so that and that now  have this cute water bottle i bought at Mr Price home, Thanks to BINTIESQUE recommendation, my life is complete on the water department.


    * Sensationalism – i really thought this was not a word and i made it up, but autocorrect said it was so it is.

    ** I said Kat is my favourite photographer “alive” since Helmut Newton will always be my favourite photographer.


    Thank You for reading.
