    Should i really post this?

    I asked myself as i previewed the images sent to me by my photographer , now as you can tell it has been awhile since i last posted my outfits in here and the reasons i have are actually alot and i could say that i am still looking for the perfect wall to take my pictures or the fact that each time i want to do an outfit shoot something happens but all in all it all comes back to my stupid insecurity of my massive weight gain and no i am not fetching compliments i hear most of them from my friends already from “No Jackie your body is fine” to “oh come on it is not even that visible” and then my friend Habiba who always makes me feel good about myself telling me that she would kill for my body. They are my friends so they are supposed to lie to me and make me feel good about myself you know.


    I blame myself fully for my weight gain and as i am seated at ArtCaffé after a virgin mojito and chicken wings with a side of fries, i remember the pizza i had last week to the amount of diet plans i have downloaded and promised myself i will start on Monday (because to me Monday seems like the perfect excuse and day to start something new) . Was the food worth it? Probably by that time i would say yes but now? not so much.
      Oh my other favourite excuse to eat anything is "I am creating recipes for the blog" truthfully yes i am i have a number of recipes coming up for you but still it doesn't excuse me for the continuos whining about my weight gain i better do something about it or become so fat i can not leave the house (i hope not, Mans gotta be places) . As one cliche quote that we all know  and that is oh so true "Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen". -Michael Jordan

    So as i write this whilst listening to james blake's new album " the colour in anything " ( it is a beautiful album you should all listen to it.) I swear this is the last time you will hear me (or read ) about not shooting for the blog post because of my body insecurities. I am going to join a Gym when i get home in dar ( going back this weekend )and well try as much as i can and eat healthy. In three months this lady will be a different lady y'all i promise that and yes (To all my friends reading this rolling your eyes,i know you have heard me say it countless time but i mean it this time) i swear on my blog (That is serious in my books)



    DSC03348I took these beautiful pictures from my favourite café in Nairobi, JAVA HOUSE. If you follow me on Instagram ,twitter or snapchat i am sure you have seen me confess my undying love for this place, I am addicted to their "ICED COFFEE " the first thing i order when i get to any Java. Try it with milk and have the coffee mild ,not so strong, THANK ME LATER.
