HEAVEN SEEMS A LITTLE CLOSER AT THE BEACH



hello loves,

this is me writing away and silently hoping that you have all been keeping well this not so new year. this is my first piece this year. i look forward to many heartfelt pieces and to connecting with fellow bloggers so that i can become better. 
 
yesterday was beautiful. After church on Sunday my  puds Kadi, Vonney and Kevo decided we should go visit the beach. ours was a chilled afternoon filled with laughter and memories. everyday i fall more in love with this town. i do hope it brings me joy, and its safe to say it has brought me a whole lot of joy.  
 
Mambrui beach is an idyllic, magical place only a short trip from Malindi town. It's full of romance and a beautiful scenery. I'm in awe of the scenery and the iridescent blue of the ocean.I love the breeze by the ocean. I always look forward to going there. So this time round to share in the magic of Mambrui with my girls! the day was pretty lazy with beach walks, ice-creamsand the sun.


After a long hard week at work,  it feels relaxing  to go hang, not necessarily take a dip but to just feel the sand on our feet and the sun on our backs. the beach is perfect in so many ways. i know at some point one is bound to get over it but for now i am soaking it all in.



so heres to heaven seeming a little closer at the beach!

Ciao

A NEW KIND OF HAPPY




 Hey lovely people,

first of my heartfelt apology for being so M.I.A for the last couple of months. yours truly has been on a soul searching journey as corny as that may sound. the past few months have been this blur...me figuring out what i really want, who i really am away from home; away from the only family  i ever knew. i stepped out into an unkown zone ....blindly not knowing what was in it for me and all i had was faith; buckets of it and a dream. 

its been close to three months now and altough its really hard to keep it together at times. i am getting by just fine. i thank God so much for giving me a mum who not only believes in me but one who would go through hell and high water to see to it that am ok. being far away from her and my sis has hit me hardest but in this  life we gotta make sacrifices. we have to go for whatever it is we feel is out there or lest keep wondering where life would have taken us if we dared to dream a little dream .

i am quite the dreamer; and a pretty unrealistic one at that. i imagine all this things happening around me and wish i could grasp a minute of that kind of magic. reality does hit me hard on some days,
; days when i question if dreams do really come true, days when i wonder whether it was really worth it leaving an ok life to go chase that grand imaginary one i had but on such days i find my strength in knowing that i serve a God who makes things happen; he has been my biggest motivator and this alone time has brought me closer to him in ways i cant explain.

it would be so careless of me not to mention a few peeps also who have basically been my lifeline for the past months and whom i hope i do for what they do for me. My confidantes and cheerleaders;' kadita, lucy, momy, sissy. "vi ringrazio tanto signore. ti amo sempre"

anywhos am still a fash diehard, going a lil easy on the sprees given my situation but i still try and get my shine on ...still love my music ;Emeli Sandes "imagine" is my get up and go kind of jam, and of course shows that kept a girl alive, devioius maids and mistresses [God this mama dramas will be the death of me] 

Thing is i have found a new kind of happy away from everything that ever mattered a couple of months ago.i am happy here and really looking forward to seeing where this journey takes me. being the free spirit i am; I've discovered some really insane places where i go to get that happy feeling back in my life incase it runs out like this safe haven called Kola Beach Restaurant at Mambrui in Malindi. "if heaven is a place called earth".....yeah its all that and a bag of chips. On matters love {soulmate is still out there somewhere....email him to me when you find him} but a girls been having some fun waiting for him "i don't kiss and tell" lol

so i leave y'all with snippets from a relaxed Sunday with my heroine miss Kadi;she does clean up real good and yours truly all maxed out and my voice of reason Emeli Sande 'Imagine

xo lovies 

p/s thank you.each one of you who reads me. i heart you so








you may say i am a dreamer
but am not the only one ' 
















miss Kadi takes a dip..
 
Imagine Emeli Sande
 Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try.
No hell below us, above us only sky.
Imagine all the people, living for today.

Imagine there's no countries, it isn't hard to do.
Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too.
Imagine all the people, living life in peace. (Oooh, oooh, oooh)

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.
I hope some day you will join us, and the world will be as one.

Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can?
No need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of man.
Imagine all the people, sharing all the world. (Oooh, oooh, oooh)

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.
I hope some day you will join us, and the world will live as one.

WAITING TO EXHALE AND BIRTHDAY WEEKEND


Love Island ... such beauty

feeling all touristy and stuff
Hello munchkins,

okay okay...i know i promised i was gonna stay away, really i was, but the lure of a blank page won me over and here i am writing away at God knows where. if memory serves me right, i promised i was gonna check in with y'all just so know am alive and kicking..lol so this is me doing exactly that ; checking in.

these past few weeks have been a daze. you know how sometimes you are so freaking happy you keep waiting to see if its all been a dream and you might wake up at some point and its all gone. Ring a bell; well something like that.

i don't know whether its because for the first time in a long time i faced my fears or its all thanks to the peace and quiet around me but whatever it is{i can gladly say without a shadow a doubt that i am in a happy place} i do know something is bound to steal my new found joy but am soaking it all in while it lasts.

my 26th birthday was too freaking awesome.  i cant sum it all up but i can try *lol
  • my pal Lu is the biggest highlight;she made it happen and i cant thank her enough
  • meeting warm people who've been so kind to me s/o Kadita and Lydia
  • winning a bottle of crisp white wine with Lu at karaoke...yaaasss
  • our duet singing Smooth operator and Hit the Road Jerk (epic)
  • discovering amazing sites, eateries the whole shebang
  • long solitary walks that allow me to connect 
  • general feeling of peace; being one with body, mind and spirit 
these are just a few of the things that are getting me there to the Zen state of mind. so without further ado i leave you with snippets from my birthday weekend which was one word ; legendary* and amazing bits of the soundtrack to the movie 'Waiting to Exhale

i had the time of my life....
Lucy rocking that floppy...
    Sometimes you'll laugh
Sometimes you'll cry
Life never tells us
The when's or why's
When you've got friends to wish you well
You'll find a point when
You will exhale

love my Dorothy Perkins easy breezy shoes

birthday night;we turnt up,..all the way

the girl with the floppy

birthday outfit..Polka play-suit;


easy breezy..beautiful day

Hearts are often broken
When there are words unspoken
In your soul there's
Answers to your prayers
If you're searching for
A place you know
A familiar face
Somewhere to go
You should look inside yourself
You're halfway there 


feeling so alive..

Waiting To Exhale........
 

Waiting to exhale.
To catch my breath,
on my pillow lay my head.,
here alone on this bed.

To close my eyes,
and drift away,
Away from my reality.
seeking the elusive tranquility.

To not think of my sorrow,
of my coming tomorrow,
I am here waiting to exhale.

I clear my mind,
Try to unwind.
My heart beating faster in my chest,
I can not sleep,
I can not rest.

Yet I go on, turning my head,
the past I must shed.
A new life to begin,
Here in this tired skin,
I wait and wait,
to see what comes of my fate.
I am waiting to Exhale.
