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 ย 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 ย ๐Ÿ˜€ ), 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 isย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

The sweater weather.


Its so freezing here,my fingers areย 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜

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!! ๐Ÿ˜‰



….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 ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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 collectionย here

OK, that’s all,Bye.

Stay Ithy … i mean icy ๐Ÿ™‚

The first season of claws was so good and the final episode was on fire!! Lots of twists, action and stupidity especially the scene of Roller, uncle daddy and Bryce fighting to Whitney’s song “i wanna dance with somebody” ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ .

This series just deserves all the awards as Solange tweeted

and Karrueche…..she deserves a clap! she was just amazing in her role but she is pregnant with Deans’ baby. Now i can’t wait for Season 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The biggest highlight was the last scene, this Doctor was all this while a drug dealer????????? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ . Claws owned this summer.

Lets wait for Season Twoooooooooooooooo.









Yes she just dropped another hit with a Nigerian artist which is just so liiiiiiiiiit!!!! I am talking about the one and only Vanessa Mdee known as vee-money straight from Tanzania. If you don’t know her, she was the first Tanzanian MTV VJ. She is also an activist, TV and radio host.

She has released singles that were on top on East African and African charts, won some of the African awards, done collabos with African artist which have been hits and she is still rising. She is one if the African artist that i can listen to all day long. What i love about her songs is that they are all diverse and bring different flavors to her music and….she blends our language so beautifully. Kenyans and Tanzanians speak the same language, swahili. Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda and Republic of Congo speak some swahili too.


Anyway she just dropped this hit called “just like that” with Orezi and the video is out. You can watch itย here. The video is lit! the outfits, that South African kinda beat and of course the dance is so dope. The type of song that any African will enjoy and she stills adds Swahili and Orezi sings in Nigerian too and some English aaaaah!!!! its just awesome.

Make sure to check that song out and her latest single “cash madame” to all the ladiesย here.


I hope she will see this post someday!! i love her.

Ok, that’s it. Bye Vanessa ๐Ÿ˜€


How to…..smoothie!!

Hi guys, you know when you are idle and you have nothing to do so you keep opening the kitchen cabinets looking for something to eat? ๐Ÿ˜€ . I saw my peanut butter and had an idea!! ย lets make a thick chocolate peanut butter smoothie ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Before we start, i have never made any kind of smoothie so if you follow my recipe don’t comment that it didn’t turn out so great ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ .

So we will start by putting some cornflakes, 2 spoons of peanut butter and milo or any cocoa powder that you have.


Then add 1 cup of milk and a spoon a sugar if you would like to, that’s optional. Don’t say i forced you to add sugar ๐Ÿ˜€ .


You can already tell its going to be yummy ๐Ÿ™‚ I get a feeling that am just playing here, it looks like mud ๐Ÿ˜€ . Lets plug it in and see some magic.

Here we go…..


Argh!! you see that one cornflakes that always doesn’t blend with the rest :-/ . Anyway, that’s the “magic.” So you pour it in a glass and add a slice of banana or if its very thick like mine, put in a little plate/bowl with banana slices and cookies then take that trip to sweetness ๐Ÿ™‚ .


More cornflakes!!!!!!!! There we are guys and girls ๐Ÿ˜€ . I hope yours turned out great and sweet. Thanks for reading all the way here. Love you!!

Ok, that’s it. Bye ๐Ÿ™‚

How to…..


Holla! lets share this with people who really need to see it. Its tough out there, just be you because there can be no better you than you. The world doesn’t owe you.

Peace out!


Good and not so good day

Do you guys watch tennis and understand it? like how to count the points and stuff cause i don’t. The Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships started yesterday but i went to watch todays’ match. Had a free entrance so i took my loved one with me. As i said i don’t understand tennis but i know Serena and Venus Williams are tennis stars which i think is enough ๐Ÿ˜€ .

wait for this part ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Monica Puig and Yaroslava Shvedova were playing when we arrived at the stadium and i got a nice shot of Yaroslava


Unfortunately she lost so now i wish i could have gotten a shot of the winner :-/ . Anyway we enjoyed then something bad happened. My phone fell and the screen cracked at the front camera ๐Ÿ˜ฆ .

took this photo when i got home

Yeah the same camera i use to take selfies! I felt like crying but shook it off because i have another camera so no problem. Well the worst was coming………..I went home and was using a knife to cut something, i put the knife in a position where the sharp side was facing up. As i was cutting what i was cutting i had to put a lot of force because it was hard and you know what happened? i used so much force and the knife went right up my forehead and i cut myself. Sorry for this “unprofessional photo” but i took it right after i panicked.


So now there is no more face pictures at all!!!! the phone camera cracked and now my face too. I guess it was my day today ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ย but i thank the Most High that i am safe and didn’t chop my eyes off.

Got to see tennis game live and finished the day with good African food.

I hope you all had a nice day. Thank you for reading ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, that’s it. Bye!







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 ๐Ÿ™‚ .

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 ย here ๐Ÿ˜€ .

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 herย 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ . Check out her videosย here.

One more quicky ๐Ÿ˜€ !! she dated Liam Payne from One Direction.

I hope she will inspire you too ๐Ÿ™‚ . 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ . 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ . 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 ๐Ÿ™‚


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 ๐Ÿ™‚ . I have always had a vision of how i would design my house the day i go back to my country FOR GOOD. ย I was going through creative things to do and i got one app, its called “DESIGN HOMES.”ย 

one of my designs ๐Ÿ™‚

I just started and am already at โˆ—3.91 overall stars ๐Ÿ™‚ , almost getting to โˆ—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, clickย my home designsย to have a look and download the app if you like being creative like me ๐Ÿ™‚ .
