Never Give up + Weekend Update

So, this weekend was absolutely crazy and amazeballs at the same time.
Friday, I was so tired that on Saturday I was unable to wake up and go to work.
So, I slept in and tried to rest until the bug caught me and I started cleaning.
Laundry, house, kitchen, everything was cleaned.
Then in the afternoon, a friend had invited us to lunch so I dressed up and left with hubs.
Little did we know that it was not just lunch but a full-blown party.
So, the festivities started and all I can say is after a few too many glasses of wine, we ended up sleeping at 6. a.m in the morning.
So, there went Sunday, nursing hangovers and sleeping just to make sure we would be ready for the week.
And here I am, Monday all fresh, a little sleepy but still loving it.

Just a little reminder to guide you and me through the week:

Whenever things seem a little hard, or you fall down and find yourself not knowing wheere to turn, never, ever, give up. I have to remind myself this everyday and I always find that things get better. Remember that where there is hope, there is life. So, keep on keeping on.
Have a fabulous week dolls!

Me, Myself and I

Hello my lovely peeps!! Hope your week is going well and you are being the best you can.
I hope your lives are flowing, smoothly, with no hitches.
Anyway, the blogosphere is a huge place and we sometimes get caught up in the process of blogging that we forget to make the most basic of human needs: connection.
We all want to connect with others and this is why blogging seems so appealing.
This is also the reason why I love the Me, Myself & I link-up. It helps us get to know the human side of bloggers.
So lovely people, this is an opportunity for you to get to know me a little bit better..

1. When you are feeling down, what do you do to pick yourself up?
 When am feeling down, I usually shut down and keep to myself. So, to pick myself up I might cook, clean, go for a walk, run, write, cry a little, tell myself that I will be ok, call my bff, eat a lot of food…dance a little, some yoga also helps
2.If you had to live in a different time period, which would you prefer?
I would love to live in the 1920’s. The Gatsby era, so pompous and life seemed so full. I’d have loved to see the prosperity in the world at that time.

3. What is the most creative Halloween costume you’ve ever worn?
There is nothing like Halloween in Kenya so I cannot answer this. However, I will let you in on a secret, in High school I was always part of the music festivals and we used to wear sisal skirts to enhance the dance movements. #loved it.
4. Five weird things we wouldn’t know without being told?
a)Am always first on the dance floor and I haven’t been on it for at-least five months now.#sad
b)I hate cats. More like, I fear cats. Well, I like their photos but in real life…..don’t come near me.
c)Am a mum’s girl.
d)I think I need fashion help. Jeans and t-shirts are getting boring.
e)I love new things but I loooove my old, familiar things. For example, I can’t seem to let go of my phone which does not even have a camera.
5. What would you tell your 16-year-old self?
To take it easy. To focus more on studies and take time to just be young and enjoy high school.

If You Really Knew Me

First, thank you to all the ladies who have written such posts. The idea is awesome and makes it easier for us to get to know each other on a more personal level.

Here we go….
If you really knew me:
…you would know that I was a very quiet and shy girl while growing up. However, that has changed dramatically over the past few years. I can now easily speak up and mingle with people from anywhere.

…you would know that I am sometimes afraid of letting people into my real life issues. I fear that I may be overburdening them.

…you would know that I love family so much. All kinds of families, to be clear, and I want to start mine asap.

..you would know that I love kids a lot and they seem to love me as well. It is very difficult to find a child that hates me!!!{mainly because I love running around and making fun} 

…you would know that am very easy going. I am the first on the dance floor and my friends usually count on me to shake up a party.
…you would know that I try to be charming though I think I fail in most attempts. My love {L} is very charming and I try to copy his skills but I can’t.
…you would know that I can never let go of things and people am attached to. I have a phone I bought four years ago and I cannot seem to let it go. I just want to hold onto what I know, what feels comfortable, you know???I hope you do know, because if you don’t, then I don’t know where this world is headed. {I digress}
…you would know that I fall in love very easily. I trust easily too and I always think that everyone is good until proven otherwise .
…you would know that I am 100% optimist. I feel bad when people are negative, I wanna beat sense into them but that wouldn’t be too good, would it?.
…you would know that I never, ever give up. Ever! I always know that things will fall into place perfectly and they always have. {Even when it doesn’t look too good}
