WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS

Its been a minute(lie), ages ooh well yes...Sometimes the scripts of our lives don't flow as expected and at times they do take a detour that forces one to abandon one thing on to the next.

In such times,I have learnt to make lemonade whenever life hands me some lemons.

Children happened,school on one side and  a demanding job on the other,that I hardly got time  to do what I really like (Blogging). Its during this period that suddenly my lemonade moment happened and voila! I now come back as a miniature Interior Designer and  Landscaper.

So in the next few issues I will be tackling anything and everything that entails revamping our homes and giving them some life.I will be giving " how to" tips on both Interior decor as well as Landscaping.

All these will be based on knowledge accumulated during my short stint as a Project Manager on a construction site.Oh Yes! you heard me right.
We shall be looking at Paint work and themes,Floor surfaces,Tile work and roofing,as well as Landscaping and that entails; lawns,flowers,trees,paving blocks,fencing,lighting and many more.


Before and after photos are always a good way of sending a message home so yes they will part of the articles.
So cheers to Interior decor and Landscaping made easy!

chunky pieces-you got to love them

I love chunky accessories.

Since accessories is  such an ambiguous word let me stick to the jewellery side of it.

Chunky jewelry has been trending for a while now, and  it comes  back in a big way every other season. Some chunky jewelry are created from large beads, others from multiple strands of small beads to achieve the chunky look.




Chunky jewelry can come in  form of chunky cocktail rings and earrings in vibrant colors or all sorts of geometric shapes as well as necklaces and bracelets created from colorful stones or thick wooden elements.



Chunky accessories are a little bit funky and a whole lot of fun. You can add chunky pieces to any outfit, from a cocktail dress to jeans and a tee. To avoid looking too gaudy, pick one chunky item and wear it as your statement piece. Chunky accessories look best with simple, solid apparel rather than bold prints or textured fabrics.


 A chunky piece will always send a bold statement about yourself.it doesn't have to be overly exaggerated and that means there is a piece for everyone out there so lets get chunky!

scarves is the way to go







I LOVE SCARVES. I thought I was addicted to scarves because of my allergic reaction to cold but after treatment I realized it was actually my fashion statement.

I have so many scarves; all colours, sizes, shapes and materials and if I was told to pick one thing that I would never leave home without I would definitely pick a scarf.

Wearing a scarf is one of the easiest ways to enhance any outfit! Chic, stylish scarves add color to any wardrobe and gives you that put-together, fashionista look. If you are not quite sure how to wear a scarf or think you can’t pull it off have no fear. I have stumbled upon 25 ways of rocking scarves and I’m definitely going to put my many scarves into use. 

Scarves aren’t just for keeping your neck warm during the cold seasons only, they can beautifully complement any ensemble. From your business attire to your weekend wear to your night-on-the-town look, there’s a scarf for every occasion. Once you see how easy it is to incorporate a scarf into any outfit, you’ll have a scarf collection that rivals your shoe collection. So the next time you bump into me on a hot sunny day with a scarf don’t get surprised I’ll be simply rocking one of  my many scarves.

Watch this….

what kind of a woman are you????


The Tomboy
Men will call you this simply if you like to get active a lot. If your relationship consists of a lot of hiking, surfing, gym time and general time outdoors/exercising, a man will refer to you as a Tomboy. At heart, all men are little boys who want to play all day and who have a lot of energy to release. They like having a woman who can keep up.



The Gold-Digger
Men get a kick out of dating at least one or two Gold-diggers—it says something about their status that women are even out to dig for their gold. And there is something satisfying about it being so easy to make a woman happy: just buy her stuff. No emotional complications involved.

The Freak
Typically men won’t stay with the ultra-sexual chick forever—the one who wants to bang in the back seat of taxi cabs, who grabs their guy’s junk under the table at dinner with his mom, and who owns a few illegal adult toys. But, as a sort of right of passage, they’ll all date one.

The hood chick
This could mean you dress in a lot of leopard print spandex jumpers, or that you have long acrylic nails, or that you speak like a rapper, or all of the above. But something about a hood chick brings out the competitive side in a man—he can’t be a demure, wimpy, submissive boyfriend with this girl.

The Good Girl
Men love nothing more than to corrupt a good girl. They love having a girl around whose sensibilities are so fragile, she covers her mouth in shock every time he makes a crude joke—that lets him know it was really crude, and he feels like a bad*ss. But good girls also bring out the inherently protective side in men: they love taking care of a sweet, unsuspecting female who doesn’t speak up for herself.

Wife material
Wife material is pretty easy to understand after you’ve read about girlfriend material. But, wife material can usually get away with not filling all the other categories. Maybe she isn’t as active as her man would like, or maybe she isn’t that adventurous in the bedroom. The reason she gets away with falling short in an area or two is because the “it” factor is there—he can’t see himself without her.

Crazy 
Yup, just plain crazy. This is the woman who will accuse a man of cheating with a woman he’s never even met, who will call every ten minutes, who will talk about all the kids they’re going to have together, and will tell him what friends he can’t hang out with. So why do men date this nightmare? Because it’s kind of an ego boost to have someone so madly obsessed with you, at least once in life. Of course, they realize this rollercoaster isn’t sustainable in the long run.

The tease
This woman insists that she is casual. She has a way of making a man wonder if she’s seeing other guys. She avoids conversations about “what we are,” sends midnight “Get in my bed” texts, and gets up right after sex to make herself food. She’s elusive, but oh so exciting. She’ll keep a guy wanting more for a long time but eventually it ends because A) She turns around one day and gives him what he wants (i.e. acts like a committed girlfriend) and he realizes the allure is gone or B) The guy begins to feel emasculated and ends it

The toy
This is a more innocent form of a booty call. Yes, if you’re the toy, a guy will want to have sex with you, but he’ll also call you up when he feels like whining about life, or when he wants someone to cuddle, or when he wants someone to keep him company grocery shopping. Some guys want all the perks of having a g
