Oh How Pinteresting and Call for Sponsors

When I log in to Pinterest, the first thing I think of is the quotes. I think am a little obsessed with getting inspirational quotes. I just love the kind of words that you can find on Pinterest.  Am so happy pinning.

When things dont make sense

There are times when I just sit around and wonder which part of my life makes sense! I try to unravel many aspects of my life and I do not seem to find the kind of sense that am looking for. But, something happens, a call, a simple text, a kiss on the cheek, a hug, a comment on my blog and I remember what makes sense, LOVE. When everything else does not make sense, just try, try and remember those people you love and you will soon find some sense in your life!

Summer Fancies

So, summer is here, or maybe at least it is where you all are. Here, in Kenya, its a little bit cold. And when I say a little, I mean a lot. Actually am wearing a hood right now because its really cloudy and cold here. But anyway, I would never let our cold dampen your summer feelings. So, I decided to indulge you in some of the beautiful clothes that I would wear if it were summer here. The colors in this ensemble amaze me. Why do we wear black and white all the time when there are such beautiful colors out there. In a bid to add more color and warmth to my life, here are my summer fancies. Linking up with av at long distance loving.

summer Fancies by emmyel featuring summer day dresses

The maxi dress is by far my favorite in this collection. Am very tiny, (like 5 ft tall) and I really refrain from anything that goes below my knees. However, this one seemed so delicious and beautiful that I just had to show it off to you. The mulch-colored dress is also beautiful and I love the yellow in it. To sum it all, I love each and every one of these and sandals too. (We wouldn’t want me to be in a beautiful maxi dress and bare foot). For those celebrating Memorial weekend, have fun, it comes only once a year. For the rest of us, work and a little play wont hurt. 
Enjoy!

Oh How Pinteresting,So long

Hey beautiful people? I know, am bad but you have to forgive me. I’ve been doing so much the last days that I almost forgot about blogging. I also did not have internet access but now am back. I know you missed me and I missed you too. At least, I hope someone out there missed me. Anyway, I just hope you are well and normal posting resumes from now onwards. Lets join with Michelle from The Vintage Apple and see what beauty Pinterest comes up with.

Hey lovely peeps!Did I just call you peeps? Oh yeah, I did because you all, are my lovely peeps. You keep coming back even when am so lost, doing I don’t know what. Anyway I love you for who you are and for keeping track of my little life.
I know av not linked up with Pinteresting Wednesday for a long time but am here and that’s all that matters. So, lets move along swiftly and see all the randomness going on with me
 I definitely want a house like this one.

Always loved Porch swings and this one is beautiful!

The cooking and baking always interests me.

The serenity in this picture is all I want and all I wish all of you

Awesome Weekend

So, this weekend I sought out to find some time to spend with family. I have been MIA from home for almost a month and a half and I really needed to get there. So Saturday, I packed up and took the 2 hour journey home. I can tell you right now that it was totally worth it or I could tell you at the end of the post. Take your pick.

I got to spend time with my parents. I really missed my mum. I am really grateful for the opportunity to talk and just be together. I loved the cooking and the laughter and jokes. Am also grateful for my brother, the inside jokes and football discussions. Totally loved it.

Am grateful for getting time to spend time with my nieces. The latest addition being Crystal who is 5 months old. The rest are Elizabeth, Diana and Mercy. I loved every bit of being with them. Their smiles are contagious and their laughter infectitious. Am so happy because I had missed them so much. I guess I really didn’t know how much I had missed them until I saw them.

Anyway, as stated above, I had an awesome time and I think am already missing everyone all over again. Hope you enjoyed yours and wish you and me a great week ahead!

Friday Fancies: Cinco de Mayo

I have to start by saying that I have little or no idea of what this holiday is all about. All I know is that holidays are there to be celebrated. I am a super fan of culture and I think these outfits really speak for themselves. They look kinda African and thats why I loved picking them out. For those who are actually celebrating Cinco de Mayo, I wish you fun, fun and more fun. Get high, dance and laugh a lot. Linking up with {av} at long distance loving for Friday Fancies.

Enjoy the weekend!

Crying..and feeling like a failure

Oh, Hi there
Hope you doing fine.
There’z a thing that I have been doing a lot lately and am so afraid to talk about,
Would you care to listen?

So, I know for most of us bloggers, our blogs represent an avenue for us to share our feelings and emotions and all that is going on in our lives. But, have you ever gone through something and you are totally clueless on how to share it with anyone. That’s the way I kinda feel right now. Am hoping by the end of this post, I will be feeling a little better and not too ashamed of having shared my secret with y’all.

Lets talk about crying for a while. You know when you get to a point in life where you definitely feel like everything and everyone should give you a break? I think I need one. I dont know whats wrong with me or whether there’z anything wrong with me to begin with but I have been crying. A lot, A hell of a lot. Fortunately, I live alone. That gives me the privilege of not having to cry quietly. I cry loud, I sob and tear up and sneeze and roll in my bed and just cry. Believe me, its not a pretty scene. {The PMS is not helping either}. My emotions are all over the place.

Now lets get a bit dark. The reason I have been crying so bad is [I feel like a failure}. “What? Are you Crazy? Girl, you gotta get serious!” I know, I know thats what you might say to me and I have said it to myself several times but I had to tell someone. You are not lucky my readers because I chose to share this with you.Lets get this point straight, am 25, I kind of hate my job and yes I totally want a new job. The pay in this one isn’t meeting my needs and I think its boring. Yea, that’s the number one reason for feeling so stupid and like a failure.

Now, that you catch my drift, I would love to say that av given up on myself but that would not be true. Even when am crying, when am sobbing like crazy, I know that there is hope. I know that there is a perfect job for me out there. All I have to do is open my eyes. I believe that things are gonna get better {probably after the period is over.

There you have it my peeps, I feel like crap but I know that this too shall pass. Though I have no solution of how I will get through this, all I know is that I will. And I will be stronger and happier at the end of all this.
