NFW TURN UP & CHAPTER 26; LET IT BE BEAUTIFUL....






Hello loves’


This must be a pretty darn good week seeing I am serving two posts. Thing is, August has been quite the month. It has been a time for me to stop sitting pretty and to shake things up. I am so glad I finally got the guts to do something ballsy. I reckon I could stay in this safe zone and keep whining or I could grow some balls (YES I SAID BALLS) and learn how to fly. Yeah pretty difficult choice’ I know.


Life is one complicated puzzle. Sometimes I sit and wonder if there is someone out there who really has it all together…maybe  Iyanla Vanzant’ Deepak Chopra and those self-help gurus. Do they really have it together or are we all just trying to be? I don’t know about them but what I know for sure is that I haven’t had it together since God knows when. I may act and look like it but heaven knows I am so lost and broken. God is wonderful. Because I wake each day, I smile and show the world that am okay. I know it really doesn’t matter how lost I may feel at times because one day I will find my way home. (Home; here is a metaphor; for finding me)


If you have been an ardent reader of my blog then by know you know I love a good rant. Though I would hate to be that kind of person who rants on the regular so am taking time to stop for a minute and smell those roses kindah like trying not to get caught up in this cycle. Next week I turn freaking 26 (yep) don’t let the body size fool you. I am a grown lass. Last year I turned the big 25 (in my head; one should have figured out what they are by then)…I still felt I hadn’t. This past year has been one of a kind; with the blog, family, friends and life. I have had to sit and make some bold choices because I felt I couldn’t hold out any longer. I dint want to be that girl that sat and watched as life passed her by. I couldn’t live with myself years from now looking  at how little I ‘d accomplished just because I was scared to test the waters so I made a point to stir things up.


I have no freaking idea what is out there and yeah I am scared as f*** but if I don’t try I will never know. In Chris Brown's song 'Don't judge me' he says’ ‘ it  could get ugly before it gets beautiful…’ so am living by these last words and hoping that chapter 26 moving on upward could get ugly…but please God; please by all means possible …let it get beautiful. 


It’s true that we can’t have a rainbow without a little rain. So yeah those days are bound to happen but let the bigger picture be incredible. I am sitting here typing away because I feel like there is so much I want to say but I have to hold back. Something’s are better kept to yourself but I hope someone reads this and feels like they could go out there and live. This blog as I may have mentioned a kazillion times will always hold a dear place in my heart. It is because of this little avenue offered by Google that I actually lived as corny as that may sound. I must admit I have been cheating on my diary a lot with this blog because I feel like I have a voice here. It may not be major one but I speak to someone regardless. 


In my moments of solitude I find myself coming here and getting that happy feeling back into my life. So taking some time off from it will be helluva hard thing to do but something’s gotta give Gotta work on what I feel is missing then probably catch up with y’all. Once in a while I’ll do a post but I aint making any promises. To my followers I appreciate the love so much. I really do. You believed in me. I hope I get better once am back on and I hope y’all will stick around. 


In Justin Timberlake’s mega hit Mirrors he says ‘yesterday is history ‘tomorrow is a mystery’ and these words resonate with me. Tomorrow is untold, all we do is hope that it turns out okay. Our yesterdays have all but stopped and are neatly put away. All that’s left now is a brand new day, brand new choices, brand new vision and a brand new us and it is up to us yes ( I speak in general here) to make tomorrow count and to ask God to let it be beautiful.


Moving on..my post today was supposed to be about Nairobi Fashion Week but being the chatty Cathy that I am I got carried away. (Virgos speak their darn minds) lol. 


NFW was one word; exhilarating. (Saying more will be total absurdity; let the pictures speak for themselves)

Quick S/O to the guy that made it happen ‘James (I owe you big time) it was truly beautiful!

GOLDEN GIRLS; I HOPE YOU DANCE







GOLDEN GIRLS; I HOPE YOU DANCE

Today I appreciate my golden girls, Millie, Keshie, Ivy and Grace. These girls have not only been my friends but my sisters, soul mates and best friends. I couldn’t think of a life before them. Since I met them most of my joy has revolved around being a part of their everyday lives, sharing tidbits’ about fashion, sleepovers, pep talks, movie nights; the whole shebang….(ain’t no one fresher than my clique)

So this is me trying to let you know; that deep in my heart of hearts I appreciate you having chosen to rock this life with. Out of all gorgeous girls out there you all found me fit to be in your circle and for that I will remain eternally grateful. You bring out the best in me in ways I couldn’t have dreamt of and I hope I do the same for y’all.

There's a famous quote from Sex & The City that goes like " Maybe our girlfriends are our soul mates and men are just people whom we are meant to have fun (sex) with" couldn’t have been said any better….

Thing is growing up we eventually move on.  Some move to different cities to find themselves or chase and follow their dreams while others chose to stay put because they have already found that missing puzzle but whatever the case scenario just know that I have you in my heart wherever I go. If I had it my way y’all would only be a bus ride away but unfortunately I don’t so I have to make it known that no matter what the future holds we will always be friends.

Hopefully one day I’ll be able to get y’all together for something cute like; tea and cupcakes as we talk about our men (yep; if some of us are blessed to ever walk down that road)…our babies (pitter patter of their tiny cute feet), the glorious joys of motherhood and not so glorious moments of it, fashion, make up, sex (hot topics) and just delight in being women. I sincerely hope that happens one fine day but till then this is from me to you…a lil poem’ and the magnificent sound of Leann Wormack‘I hope you dance.

P/S doesn’t forget to let you girls know you got them …………. Sistaluv#

Dear friend you changed me
You let me break out of my shell and be the woman I always knew I could be
You let me take my hair down and let the wind blow through it
You have been my go to for days when I needed strength to carry on

All this time, I was looking for this deep connection to form with some guy, when all I actually needed was your friendship
To help me get through to me so that I could one day be a good partner to the guy I found that deep connection with
I am happy to have started this journey with you
And will always be
I wish you joy’ laughter and lots of peace
But above all things I wish you love


 





Miss Millie....this girl is beautiful; all way round'
Angela Ivy; knowing you was  a highlight for 2012

started when we were younger...yet to meet a more beautiful soul

style meets friendship; love this girl'


Girls, Sex and the City and Golden Girls; because you would be my go too if we were cast for this amazing shows

 





"I Hope You Dance" Leann Wormack
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

Dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance..
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone)

SERENDIPITY




Hello loves’


I know I promised myself I wasn’t going to be about these mushy movies anymore but a girl can’t help it…when it’s the only thing close to anything really. My names are Susan Waithera Mwaura and I am an addict; yes I agree. I am addicted to soppy romantic dramas and comedies. Something about them that gives me a glimpse of hope that one day I will sail off to the sunset with my one’ my love. (ooh loves me the sound of that)


Before you go thinking am some teen that is yet to get hit hard by life…let me correct you. I am freaking 25 years old turning 26 next month (Heaven I need a hug”)…and am a sucker for romance. I consider myself a late bloomer…lol’ that’s the only consolation right about now. Okay so what sparked all this love talk…was the movie ‘Serendipity’ starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale (this two had crazy onscreen chemistry) it was such a great movie..but what stayed with me most was the name ‘Serendipity’ if I ever open shop someday….i am so going to call it ‘Serendipity’ because when you visit us we will give you something you dint expect to find…..hahahaha…(I am such a dreamer, but as they say dreams are the visions of  our souls. So dream on honey ……


The Notebook (Ryan Gosling), The Vow (Channing freaking Tatum), The Lucky One (Zac Efron) and a whole lotta more are my guilty pleasures. Those nights when it gets cold outside and you’ve got nobody to love…the DVD suddenly becomes your best friend’ and you are so all right when Ryan tells you he wrote you every day for a year’ then Channing patiently waits as you recover from amnesia, Zac comes around and finds peace in your arms and finally John Cusack finds your jacket in the park and you sail off to the sunset. Now that is total bliss.





On other news; Sunday was splendid. Thing is, I have always wanted to go to Safari Walk but never really got around to doing it. So I woke up happy’ sun was out it was a glorious day and I wasn’t going to waste it. Not even overly sentimental movies would make me stay. My buddy Gracie and I decided to go and just walked through…marveling at the sights and of course starring at cute couples. (Ooh you should have seen us…) It was such a day really. I wore this sequined lbd that I got a few months back at such a bargain. Its best suited for a night out but I gave it a casual feel by adding the huge yellow flower…(yellow is vibrant ) and colorful sandals. 
so i leave y'all with snippets from Nairobi Safari Walk.
