Hello guys!!
Last post of 2017 and I simply can't believe it.
I have had quite the year. So so many ups and a few downs but it's been a great one. I am thankful for all. My family, my friends, my blog but most of all God for preserving my life. By the way guys, I had an accident at some point this year. Won't go into details but woah, could have gone either way but I'm still here so Halleluyia!!
I just want to talk about the fashion bit now because I believe that I have grown so much in one year. This year, I worked with so many people, got so much and made so many posts. I am proud. The embroidery trend was definitely a winner for me. I did so much on how to wear embroidery. I got so many cool pieces like these fancy palazzo pants that ensured I wasn't left out on the palazzo trend,  some cool tapered pants, how to wear a jumpduit. By the way, I am obsessed with jumpsuits. I love them.I was also able to show how to wear a kimono in my own way and incorporate the trend in different ways e.g the kimono dress. I was able to get my hands on some grest capes. Capes for women are a must have and most of all I was able to buy some amazing dresses. I love that I was able to show you where to buy dresses, classy ones, fun ones you name it. Blogging has been great in 2017 and I can't wait to do better in 2018.It's gonna be great. I also tried out YouTube which I admit I am struggling with.If you haven't followed me yet follow me on my social media as well as on Bloglovin. I'll leave the links below.Also if you missed any of these posts then click the links below the pictures.
Thanks for stopping by
Happy New Year

Hey guys!
So we know that  Brazilian hair bundlesare like the best to have on your head.They are very versatile and give your hair that boost with body and of course bounce.They come in different colors, textures and lengths and will allow you to make a fashion statement always.Maxglamhair has some cheap human hair bundles would be great if you are looking to invest in a good Brazilian hair extension.You can find them there in different colors such as ombre bundles , black, brown among others. I just think it would be great to start the new year with some good hair and you should definitely take a look at these options or many others on Maxglamhair site.

Hey guys!
Oh my goodness it's actually almost 2018 already.Time is flying I tell you but I hope we are happy with that.I am so glad you chose to stop by
A jumpsuit never looked this effortlessly fabulous.I mean this shade of blue is gorgeous.This blue jumpsuit with sleeves makes for great fashion.You might remember my blue jumpsuit from this video I did here.I had it tailored a little to fit me because it was a bit large and now I love it.She might have squeezed it a bit funnily around the armpit area but she'll fix it.I am so glad I did not have this one cut at the bottom like the yellow jumpsuit here which is in a similar design because this length is giving me life.I got this from Gamiss , a site that I am definitely learning to love even more.I mean these guys have great clothes.They are affordable clothes yes but the quality is so great.I have received a number of stuff from them.Can't complain you guys.So it's a blue jumpsuit with sleeves and the jumpsuit comes as is with a belt and I decided to wear it with just a simple black shoe for this look.I must say however that I can already think of so many other ways to rock this so I am definitely here for this particular number.So now you know where to buy a jumpsuit. Whether blue or any other color.

Hey guys!!
Happy holidays!!I know we're still in the season and oh so busy with family, friends and fun but I still got time to look online for more stuff to buy, more trends to possibly rock and yup, I am still reading blogs.So I love me some good jackets. Some great coats. Denim, bomber jackets, trench coats and leather, I'll have them on any day for whatever season.
I learnt of a new site last week. The name's Stylebest.I have never shopped there clearly but I would definitely try it out because I did see some good stuff there. Now it's not that hard to look through their site because the arrangement is so simple. I want to add some more outerwear into my closet because come 2018 I just want to look cooler, mmore stylish, chic, you name it and I think jackets and coats generally are a great way to go about that.
So guys because I love to give options on where to try out, there goes a new one . Stylebest.You can use the code MCSTBEST for 35 percent off throughout the entire website.
Thanks for stopping by
Happy Holidays

Hey guys!
I have something a little different for you guys.Something a bit different from what I normally write about on the blog.I just thought, it is a lifestyle blog read by different people so I might just go on ahead and include some different topics once in a while.

Today, I'm talking a bit about kids.The new year is about to start and some will be sent out to kindergarten and these points will be helpful.Will make for a good read before you all get too busy next week when the year actually begins.
Little ones should be engaged with easy kindergarten activities! These activities for kindergarteners will hold their attention and satisfy their curiosity. It is a great resource for all parents and also for teachers.

Kindergarten Reading Activities:
Read with your child. You should read storybooks aloud with your little one to help build her vocabulary. For every day carrier recommends at least 20 minutes of reading. At bedtime reading books is a helpful routine. You can take advantage of other opportunities as well, such as while waiting at the doctor’s office or a restaurant. Scholastic recommends discussing some books as you read them. Ask questions that address what the kid thinks of the plot, characters and motivations within the story. Also, have your kid summarize the story and compare it to other stories she knows.

Kindergarten Math Activities:
You should prepare yourself for kids with a wide range of skills. You also should be ready for kids who are readers, kids who have never seen letters, and everything in between. Make sure she understands the concept, or she's facing the daunting challenge of memorizing meaningless rules. You should teach her to write clearly and neatly. Tracing letters and writing on graph paper will improve her number writing. You can review math vocabulary to ensure she can define the skills she's learning. Check to make sure your kid is approaching her homework spontaneously. She should study the textbook. She also should practice the sample problem before starting the assignment.
Explain her how math applies to real-life situations and challenge him to help you solve the math problems.

Kindergarten Science Activities:
Make your home a Petri dish for creativity. You should encourage your kids to find more than one route to a solution, and more than one solution to a problem. When your kids successfully solve a problem, ask them to solve it again but to find a new way to do it (same solution, different route). Then also ask them to come up with more solutions to the same problem. It will improve their science experiences.

Kindergarten Games Activities:
You can train and strengthen a kid’s ability to concentrate and focus by playing concentration games that require thinking, and planning. You can encourage your child to create a picture in his mind of what he’s just read or heard. Then have your kids to draw that picture. As she gets better at visualizing, she can properly describe the image to you instead of needing to draw it.

Kindergarten Art and Coloring Activities:
Children can learn to draw the same way they learn to speak by copying. Drawing with kids can help them discover that shapes can carry meaning, and more importantly, that they can create meaningful shapes themselves. You can draw simple faces. As you draw, you can also explain what you are doing: a happy smile, a sad face, curly hair, this one has ear-rings. Draw trees, flowers, grass, a house and animals. It will makes your kids mind more creative.

So, these rules of learning can ensure a great way to develop your kids mind.

Hey guys!
It's almost Christmas.Don't be fooled.The weather is now nice and sunny.I love it.So this dress has just become one of my favorites.So easy to wear, so flattering and also so comfortable.The fabric is nice and soft and also , the length is decent.I love that it's got long sleeves.A dress with long sleeves is always a winner for me.So how perfect huh?This dress just has Christmas colors .I'm happy.I actually got it from Zaful.This certainly a great season.I just styled it with a faux fur bag as well as these simple black heels and was good to go.This will probably be my last post before Christmas seeing that Christmas is on Monday.My goodness, where did time go?
So I hope your Christmas plans are falling into place great.I'm just happy I'm in the company of both my parents and my three siblings this season.That alone means the world to me you know.
This is a great time to be grateful for all the great things that have happened to you in the year, the people around us and most of all to relax and learn to be more positive in life.I actually came across a great article on how to teach your brain to be more positive .Beautiful article that you can check out.Would make for a great read.Anyway I'd also love to urge everyone to be more careful especially on the roads.Here in Kenya the festive season sometimes instills so much rush in people especially public vehicle drivers because so many people are travelling. It's really not worth putting your life at risk just because you want to rush.Whether you are driving or you are the passenger, please encourage road safety.It's better to be late than to fail to arrive you know.We all want to cross over to the next year and we hope everything goes great. Thanks for stopping by.
Merry Christmas guys.
