    5 Kat Von D Lipstick Shades You Need This Fall

    Kat Von D’s makeup line is known for their Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks because they actually are the closest thing to everlasting that I’ve come across so far! Kat Von D products are cruelty free and vegan. Here are five shades that would be perfect for fall even though I know fall is technically half way through! Lolita I- This is honestly my favourite shade like ever. I wear it all the time all year around but it looks extra amazing in fall since it’s more brownish and looks perfect with the changing of the leaves and weather. Also this is the perfect shade for people with olive skin looking for…

    The Guy From Another League

    GoodReads Blurb: This is a book about a girl who made a wrong choice. It will bring her humiliation and disgrace. Her relationship will bring out the worse from her. She will gamble with her reputation, lose her friends and dignity. All for the guy who just wanted the one-night stand. My Thoughts: Before I start this I just want to appreciate the fact that Kristina’s first language is not English yet she has managed to publish a number of books in English which I think is really inspiring! I am not a fan of books about love and relationships in general so I was slightly skeptical about this one.…

    ELF BB Cream With SPF 20 Review

    I have started using this product for a few weeks now and I decided to do a little review about it because I was so freaking impressed! Now if you’ve read any of my other makeup posts you’ll know I love ELF and it’s my favourite vegan and cruelty free beauty brand right now. It was so affordable, honestly, when I first bought an e.l.f product I was like that’s suspicious like do they not have good quality products but they do! Anyway, back to the BB cream, I was again a little skeptical because I’m not a big fan of BB creams or foundation because I have pretty dry skin and…

    The Concord Hotel

    This is another place in Nairobi that I really enjoy going to. It’s so beautiful and as soon as you walk in you’re surrounded by beautiful artwork! Then there are beautiful areas both on the first and second floor where you can have food and drinks. It’s all open so you can look at the beautiful view around while enjoying your meal. There’s a lovely swimming pool area where you can relax and take a dip! It’s right next to the gym in case you feel like working out later! If you are ever in Nairobi I would definitely recommend you check out this amazing place with friendly staff members, good…

    DusitD2

    As you guys know I’ve been back in Nairobi for a while and I thought I would explore a little and go see some new places I’ve never been to before. This post is actually coming in a little late because we visited the place like 3 weeks ago. Anyway we decided to first check out the Rouge Deck which is by far the coolest place I’ve been to recently! It’s located in DusitD2 which is actually a hotel but has a lot of cool things too! They have a red pool and there’s a sitting area in the pool- like right in it- which is why it’s called the Rouge Deck! That was a really…

    My 5 Favorite Matte Lipsticks!

    Kat Von D– I’m going to start out by saying that Kat Von D is kind of pricey however her everlasting liquid lipsticks are the greatest lipsticks I’ve ever used. Nothing else has ever compared and if it wasn’t for the fact that they are pretty expensive I would have all of them! They feel so light like you’re not even wearing any lipstick and they stay on no matter what! Seriously, the world could end and your lipstick would still be on fleek. My favourite shade so far has been Lolita I. E.L.F– These are so affordable and really great to use! No they won’t stay on for the whole…

    T.V Show Review: Jessica Jones

    *Warning: Contains Spoilers* “A big part of the job is looking for the worst in people. Turns out I excel at that.” I started watching Jessica Jones last Friday and have been absolutely obsessed with it ever since. I have literally told everyone I know to watch it because it is the most amazing show I’ve ever seen. Marvel never seems to disappoint and Jessica Jones is evidence of that. Jessica Jones is a Netflix original series that revolves around the life of Jessica Jones a sort of anti-hero. She is extremely introverted and has barely any friends at the beginning. We also see that she has superhuman strength and…

    Book Review: A Thousand Splendid Suns

    *Warning: Contains Spoilers* A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini is an incredible book about two women from different families and different backgrounds who are forced to suffer the same fate as a result of unfortunate events. These two women go on to form an extraordinary bond and fight for their freedom. Unlike Hosseini’s first book The Kite Runner this one focuses more on the lives of young women in Afghanistan. I originally read this book for my English class and absolutely loved it. Hosseini has a certain way of using characters to bring out emotions and create realistic situations. His books are always very honest and raw and discuss…

    Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Part 1

    *WARNING: CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS* I know everyone has probably written their reviews for this movie but I wanted to write it a bit later after discussing it with everyone and reading some other reviews too. So instead of talking about the plot I will be talking mainly about the characters, especially the newly introduced ones. But I must admit I did love the plot (although it was extremely similar to the plots of past episodes). Everything about the movie seemed great too- the actors and actresses did a great job, the lighting and sound was obviously great and I really loved how J.J Abrams paid homage to the original movies.…
