Deserted In Confetti



Beauty goes deeper than the surface. I think most girls have this insecurity in which they feel like they cannot do without make-up. I never used to really focus on makeup Β before moving to Dubai. I would just stay like that and no one would say anything or comment unwanted comments on my face because that’s how everyone was in the neighbourhood.

I infact hate makeup, i just put it on when i am going to work, i do not like to use it as a cover up but just to play with it. When i say ‘it’ i don’t mean all the layers that people apply. I just do my eyebrows because they are the only feature that i wasn’t blessed with(which is fine with me, am a black queen anyway Β πŸ˜€ ), moisturizer and lipstick and that’s it.

When i come from work the only thing i want to do is just clean my face to take out the fake things “eyebrows.” I am so used to just stay without makeup because it made me get used to my natural face and love it.


I think the society we live in has blinded us even to our own selves and our identity.We do not need make up to feel beautiful or for someone to think we are beautiful. So i want to challenge each one of you reading this to upload on Instagram or create a post with a picture of your natural face. Use that to pass a message to people to love themselves. For the Instagram uploads lets use the hashtag #iamnotinsecure and don’t forget to tag me, my Instagram username isΒ nyambura22

For the photos tagged i will put all the photos together and post them here. For the blog posts, spread the message and add your natural pretty face on it.

Lets spread this and keep it going, am looking forward to the tags of each of your beautiful faces :-).

Ok, that’s it.Bye πŸ™‚

The sweater weather.


Its so freezing here,my fingers areΒ FROZEN …did it come to your mind when i said that??Did it?? Oh Meeeeeeeen!!!! me too, that movie just froze me up to this post πŸ˜‰

Sooooooooooo, its almost winter and we’ll have frequent visits to the toilet. That’s literally the first thing that comes to my mind…toilet…i don’t think am serious with the weather, i need some sweaters and so do you 😐

People always have this cute imagination that winter is a sweet weather with all the snow outside…but i don’t…maybe its because its all sunny in my hometown and Dubai gave me a taste of winter last year, it was my first winter experience and it wasn’t good.

This weather makes it difficult to go out, its all windy and cold.

You can’t talk properly cause your mouth is shaking from the cold, you can’t hold a thing unless its hot…. like someone’s booty HA!! πŸ˜‰



….stop imagining someone’s booty, you’re so nasty, i meant a cup of coffee.When you want to go out, you have to put on like tons of t shirts and sweaters before you put on the final coat, makes you tired even before you step out :-/

The funny thing is you see people in social media dressing so good with very few clothes in winter and here you are with tons of sweaters on your body. Makes you wonder if they are not affected with the cold…Then you have to go to work, you just freeze up the whole day and when you go home,,here comes hardest part,,taking shower.

First,you get in bed thinking you will just warm up yourself then shower but end up taking a nap. You wake up after Β some minutes and you still have that shower nightmare so you decide to watch a movie or something else. When your movie is over, you go to shower and DANG IT!!!! The water is so cold.

Back to social media, everyone is happy about winter and your there covered in blankets thinking WTF!!!!

What i like about winter is the outfits collections i see, not the ones i wear. Its one or two months to winter anyway here in Dubai so there’s still time to buy all the sweaters needed.

When winter is here, don’t let anyone lie to you that you don’t have to wear tons of sweaters just to look good at the mall. Its good for the pictures but after that you won’t even be able to walk home with that cold….unless you call an uber who will drive thafley because the roads will be quite thongue is starting to freethe already 😦

Thank you for coming all the way here and do share your comments on what you like and don’t like about winter..funny and weird things that you experienced in winter, i know my face was blown by an icy wind that got me moving my lips without saying a word.

Don’t forget to check out my winter collectionΒ here

OK, that’s all,Bye.

Stay Ithy … i mean icy πŸ™‚

You look for inspiration everywhere but you forget that you can inspire someone too just by the little things you do. It might be through your lifestyle, career, sports, culture, blog, art or just you being you. So don’t be afraid to live your life, you might be inspiring someone somewhere πŸ™‚ .

I have been so busy and haven’t being able to post but am hoping to do so this week.

I love you guys and thanks for peeping Β here πŸ˜€ .

Ok, That’s it. Bye.

My new inspiration

I always spare about 30 to 60 minutes everyday to look for new inspiration. Currently i needed some fitness morale because i have become a lazy person :-/ . So i found Danielle Peazer!!! She is a dancer and currently a Reebok Ambassador in the UK.


I found her fitness videos in her YouTube channel DANIELLE PEAZER. Its not just a fitness channel which i love about it, she posts vlogs of her everyday life, videos on morning routines, healthy eating, fashion and she also has a blog through herΒ website.


Another thing i love about her is she loves herself, i read that in her blog post. Some of her fitness videos are like dance routines such as hiphop but focus on what your target is and you really feel the burn πŸ˜€ . Check out her videosΒ here.

One more quicky πŸ˜€ !! she dated Liam Payne from One Direction.

I hope she will inspire you too πŸ™‚ . Have a lovely day.

Ok, that’s it. Bye.

Fiction world!


Look who i found in the book section!! These two are my favorite. I haven’t read the books because i loved the stories acted out in the movies and just thought they were perfect. What i love about fictional stories is you fall in love with the character, especially in the fault in our stars and you go through all the emotions the character goes through. Its like you are part of the story too. It takes you to another world for a moment. I watched the fault in our stars as soon as it premiered and i fell for it. I even forced my mum to watch and i saw her crying at the part when the characters were doing the funeral rehearsal for “Augustus” and i think also during the burial πŸ˜€ . This movie just wakes all your senses. I would watch it so many times and never get over it.

I watched paper towns much later, i loved the adventure within but i didn’t like how it ended. I expected it to be a happy ending for both characters and maybe they would finally be together.

Anyway am always happy when i see the books or clothes with quotes from these stories. My favorite quotes from paper towns are:-

“i go to seek a great perhaps”…. “you have to get lost before you can find yourself”….“what a treacherous thing is to believe that a person is more than a person”

Favorite quotes from the fault in our stars are:-

“some infinities are bigger than other infinities”….“the world is not a wish granting factory”….“you don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world but you do have some say in who hurts you”….“you gave me a forever within the numbered days and i’m grateful for that”

If you haven’t seen or read these two stories then you haven’t understood anything i said πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ . Its ok but just look for these two and watch, they are just amazing!!!!

Thank you for reaching all the way down. Just wanted to share a little something i love with you guys.

Ok, that’s it. Bye πŸ™‚


My home designs

One of my favorite things to do when on my laptop is pinning images on pinterest. I got another thing to do which i have been so glued to thing past week. Designing πŸ™‚ . I have always had a vision of how i would design my house the day i go back to my country FOR GOOD. Β I was going through creative things to do and i got one app, its called “DESIGN HOMES.”Β 

one of my designs πŸ™‚

I just started and am already at βˆ—3.91 overall stars πŸ™‚ , almost getting to βˆ—4. I love it because i am obsessed with interior decor and once i get the right color for the house, creativity just flows. My favorite colors for interior design is pure black, pure white and grey.

Anyway i pinned all the designs i have done so far on my pinterest board, clickΒ my home designsΒ to have a look and download the app if you like being creative like me πŸ™‚ .

When it gets tight


Sometimes everything just gets so tight that you want to stop. You just feel like you’ve reached the end and there is nothing more you can do. It might be about family, work, relationship, money, depression or just anything.

The only thing that you want to do is just be alone with no distractions. Almost everyone goes through these moments. I have been in this situation a couple of times and after sometime i always get back up. The only advise i can give someone who is going through this right now is:-

♦ Enjoy your time alone

♦ Believe in yourself

♦ Think positively

♦ Make your own happiness tips

♦ Ask Β for help

♦ Express your creativity

♦ Everything happens for a reason

♦ “This too shall pass”

♦ Go outside and meet people

♦ ItsΒ ok to cry

♦ If it doesn’t open, its not your door

and the most important one, let the Most High take the wheel from your hands.

Have a peaceful day/night wherever you are πŸ™‚ .

Ok, that’s it. Bye 😐 .




After the Inauguration……

waiting like….

I know am not american lol! but i always keep up with the world. So there are people protesting on Trumps’ inauguration at his tower and else where. I don’t really like politics but there are some news that i just have to watch.

I can’t watch the inauguration live because i will be at work when its on,which is in about 7 hours but i can’t wait for the after shows. The shows that i always love to watch when it comes to this kind of topic is Jimmy Kimmel, as you see him there πŸ˜€ .Wendy Williams show, she keeps it real and The Daily Show by Trevor Noah!!! I love these shows!!!! Its sad Obama left from the White House 😦 . Everyone loves him even people who are not from America.

Anyway have a good day my people. I am just waiting for the shows to come on.

Ok, that’s it. Bye.

Happy Birthday MY LOVE.

As he grows older, may he have the wisdom to keep up with me πŸ˜€ and may Yahuah never forget him. He doesn’t know am posting this so happy birthday to you my love.

i like my negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils. love you!!!!!

More chokers!


No one likes going to the mall when they are broke neither do i but we just decided to go to look for one thing. We went to Dubai mall, i was avoiding to go my favorite retail stores because i knew i would see something that i would want to buy. So we looked for what we went for but didn’t find it and instead we just went for window shopping :-/ . My favorite retail stores are H&M, Jennyfer and Bershka. I just love all their items.

As we were walking-by, we saw H&M and i was freaking out inside like “don’t stop, lets keep walking.” Β Luckily we passed it but then Bershka was just a few stores ahead and he (My boyfriend) saw it. He loves Bershka too πŸ™‚ . He suggested to go and have a quick look, i didn’t want to go but didn’t tell him. So i just agreed.

As we walked in, my eyes were all over looking at this and that because the clothes were just all so nice and cute. Funny thing is i didn’t want to check the price tag otherwise it would ruin my moment πŸ˜€ .

On our way out, near the cashier i saw chokers πŸ™‚ . I was so excited because they were in a pack either you take it all or leave it. I told him to buy for me, he was hesitant at first and i was like “i didn’t want to come here but you wanted to so am walking out of here with these chokers πŸ˜€ .” Then he agreed and paid for it πŸ™‚ . So more chokers for me!! I love how its a trending now though its an 80s thing but its more cooler on a 90s girl πŸ™‚ .

My favorite is no 3 (hard leather textured with little diamonds around)
Some model agent should hire me right away, how perfect is that? πŸ˜€ . My fav choker.

I plan to have more collection of chokers so i can choke myself when am stressed πŸ˜€ . Just kidding πŸ™‚ . I hope you like my chokers too guys!!!

Ok, that’s it. Bye!

Nothing to wear!

Have you ever been ready to go out but then you have nothing to wear? Its funny and annoying. Its not like you don’t have clothes, its just that you can’t find one to wear πŸ˜€ .

Pardon this photo πŸ˜€

It has happened to me a few times. Am so ready, i have nothing to wear, i remove all the clothes from the cupboard thinking i will find one hidden there but then i just stare at my clothes. I get angry and end up wearing an old t shirt, cancel my plans to go out and just throw all the clothes again in the cupboard πŸ˜€ .

Then on a day that i don’t have any plans to go out, that’s when i find clothes to wear and ask myself where was that when i was looking for something to wear the other day? :-/

You find yourself wondering if you are really stupid or just confused with life πŸ˜€ .

Ok, that’s it. Bye!
