Let There Be Light

The honor and privilege of wiping this lantern globe was a reserve of the tenderest, most cautious of hands in the household. This chosen person was identified at birth… from their peculiar cry. The elders knew it when they heard it.


Happy Father’s Day ๐Ÿ’•

Today, I hold space for all those who have lost a father,may God give you strength to pull through โค

I hold space for those with an absentee father,may you realize that your existence is a blessing and that you are loved.๐Ÿ’•

I hold space for young fathers who may feel confused, may you find clarity and strength.

I also hold space for all fathers who aren’t on social media ,whose pictures will be posted online but will not even receive a text or call from their kids. I know you won’t see this either ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Lastly, I hold space for all fathers,I know it’s not easy but for your selflessness and sacrifice, I pray that you may be blessed.

To all fathers and future fathers, Happy Fathers Day. God bless you โค.

This post is dedicated to my father, Macharia wa Martin. For making so many sacrifices bringing us up, he even used to take me to the salon while mom took care of my younger brothers. Thank you for loving us dad.

Treat Yo Self

My ‘Treat Yo’self’ Move Gone Wrong.

I’m all about the ‘Treat Yo’self’ movement. In fact, I am a platinum member. My signature Treat Yo Self move is the therapeutic visit to the salon/spa…hair,manicure,pedicure,facials etc. Whenever I feel stressed, bored or just broke, I just visit the salon and spend the last coins there because I can’t be broke and have bad hair or bad nails.

Let’s deconstruct them.


Surviving Christmas As a Single Person

Single Bell; Single For Christmas

It’s Christmaaaaas! The decorations are up,the love… the extravagance is tangible!ย The Carols fill the air ๐ŸŽผ The breweries staff sing ๐ŸŽถ”Njohi to the world…”ย  ย *Njohi is alcohol* while the rest of us singย ย “Mary did you know, that your baby boy…๐ŸŽถ ” Yes. I’m pretty sure Mary knew all that so can we now move to the main agenda, getting through it all.
