2016 Year Review

2016 has been quite a year for everyone.
I graduated from Cooperative University with a Diploma in Public Relations and I feel like it’s the only course I needed to do regardless Journalism being my passion.

I celebrated my first year blog’s anniversary on 10th July 2016, having 52 posts and 4,440 views and 1,662 visitors. It’s not been easy to cope up with my blog and other things and to get people to view. Alot of people ignore my blog’s link but I keep on pushing. For those who’ve been real since day one, I appreciate the love and support. Come 2017 I’ll be posting regularly and having great content as well.

In the fashion industry at large, Evelyn Njambi  managed to make it to the top five in the contest for Miss World, she’s put Kenya on the world map and we’re totally proud of her.

Socially, Kenyans have suffered from drought and floods, building collapsing because of weak foundation. This is mainly because of the huge gap between the rich and the poor. The poor have been exploited by the rich who construct houses with weak foundations and once the building collapses, they’re nowhere to be found.
The common ‘Mwananchi’ has been robbed and our rights are no longer upheld. Billions are stolen day in day out and no action is ever taken. The rich are getting richer and the poor dominate in poverty. It’s so sad how these things happen and nobody cares to make a move or the right turn.
The common ‘Mwananchi’ has no say in a lot of happenings in the country but all we do is pray for a better nation and a better 2017.

Politically, Kenyans have been scattered all over trying to figure out who’s the best leader. In the political world, there’s no good leader, in one way or the other, they’ll still mess up. But it’s good to compare and contrast. That however, doesn’t give you a good leader either, it just shows you who’s less evil than the other.
But Kenyans never listen anyway.  They’ll complain of bad leadership but when it comes to voting, they’ll not cast a vote to determine their leaders.

Kenyans are easily influenced by different political ideologies and don’t take time to understand them but rather start rioting and fighting each other. We’re better than that. We should be united and live in peace, love and harmony. Let’s not allow the greed of political leaders to affect our togetherness. Next year go out there and cast your honest vote and determine your leaders. DO NOT complain of bad leadership if you’re not planning to cast your vote.

2016 hasn’t been an easy journey for many but it has come to an end. What do you want to do better than what you did in 2016?
How many lives do you want to transform in 2017?

It’s the festive season, who have you shared with the little or much you have?

Have you made someone smile?

Have you made someone feel loved?

Have you made someone feel appreciated and worth living life?

Well maybe you haven’t, but next year transform lives and be a better you than who you were this year.

As from me, I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2017.

Thank You Note!

The African Fashion Fusion was held on 23rd of July at Michael Joseph Centre Westlands. The event was a success and we thank God. I’ve been so busy but I had to take this chance to at least thank each and everyone involved in making it a success.

The models, the designers, the artistes, the MC, the DJ, the photographers, the food and drink vendors all did an amazing job and even words can’t express my gratitude towards them. Without forgetting the attendees of course.

The event was powered by: Concept World &

PRISONERS OF THE CURRICULUM

Amazing!

angagafelix23

Let me engage you for a moment,
What is your purpose in this life?!
Who are you?! Or rather whom do you ought to be?!

We all have gone to school,
For it is a system that influenced our choices, determined the wrong from right and made us slaves of numbers and alphabets.
You think I am lying, open your dictionary, check the meaning of school..

1. any institution at which instruction is given in a particular discipline.

But not all is negative about it. The second meaning states

2. a group of people, particularly writers, artists, or philosophers, sharing the same or similar ideas, methods, or style.

We all went through the moments when you wake up, go to school, sit on a desk with the rest, be taught for the rest of the day, raise your hand for questions and answers, later wait for a test
Examination which…

CONQUER THYSELF

Amazing Piece.

The Outpour

“I really want to lose weight. But I can’t stop eating pizza and drinking litres of soda. I really want to spend more time with my family, but I keep spending a lot of time on social media instead. I totally would like to score well in my finals, but instead of studying, I binge watch every new series in the market”.

That is the story of the lives of some of us. The good we want, we do not do. But the bad we seek not, we end up doing.There is a huge discrepancy between what we know we should be doing and what we actually do.

I have come to realize that many times, we stand in the way of our own success.We block our own sunshine more effectively and more regularly than any other outside force does. We are self sabotaging at an alarming rate.

We have…

Communicate – Never Preach – on Twitter…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

As I prepared for a presentation for the San Francisco Writers Conference a few years ago, I thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool if I could come up with an acronym about the way writers should use social media?”

I sat at my desk and played with some variables. It didn’t take long for me to come up with what I thought was the perfect combination. The acronym I settled on is CARE and this is what it stands for:

C – Communicate with your readers.

A – Answer your readers’ questions.

R – Relate to your readers.

E – Educate and entertain.

Joanna Penn devised the term social karma. As she explains it, if you want book sales, buy books. If you want book reviews, write reviews for the books you read. If you want people to like your…

ARE YOU READY TO PLAN YOUR LIFE!….

life plan 4

You know, at times we are not so far away from the life that will fill us with contentment to the brim, in fact we just need to refocus on a few little things and maybe give more value and importance to certain small aspects f our life, and take another view of things, hopefully this will help you a little to place things in the right order…………

Use your time well, it is truly precious, at times we do not realise the value it has, we take on so much and put ourselves on overload ? why ? when a good plan beforehand will put things better in place, you will not explode or meet yourself coming back as they say! When we choose to do things we enjoy, the first part of the plan is to find the time to do just that, enjoy so you have to…
