TRAVEL DECOR: WHEN IN MILAN 

TRAVEL DECOR: WHEN IN MILAN

The last stop was Milan, Italy- a country I fell hard for. The food, the sites,the culture, the language, the people! I want to go back again! We booked an Airbnb in Cimiano,Milan. It was a quaint little 2 bedroom apartment that fused a minimalist modern…

Take 5

This 2017 is swishing past really fast, faster than blog posts can be churned. In all the mayhem and bustles of work and life, here are 5 things that  I am really  into at the moment.  Nivea Creme In A Tub This cream is life! Especially if you get dry and ashy during the day. It comes in a compact sleek tub that fits in the tiniest of purses. Add some glycerine into it or some baby powder if you…

TRAVEL DECOR: DIANI

TRAVEL DECOR: DIANI

“Then you will travel, and the decor will move you” -Itch, 2017. Everytime I travel. I marvel at the architecture, interior design and decor of my destination. I will take snaps at a cute building or chair or table before.  The natural surroundings and people and culture move me but not as much as the furniture and the ambiance. So in Diani, our villa had amazing furniture. Read about our trip . I am not into rustic furniture  but this…

Love&Light, Itch.

ZANZIBAR DIARIES : PART 1

ZANZIBAR DIARIES : PART 1

Zanzibar stole my heart! It’s very picturesque, perfect and inarguably the most beautiful place in the world. What with the blend of the old world, a bit of modernity and a hint of nautical pleasure along the beaches. This is a trip I would make over and over and over again. The trip to Zanzibar was terrific. It took 2 hours from JKIA Nairobi to Dar Es Salam by air and an extra 2 hours to Zanzibar by the Kilimanjaro…

MOVIE PREMIER – GET SOME MONEY

MOVIE PREMIER – GET SOME MONEY

Movie premiers, never been to any until about 25.02.2017.  It was an awesome experience. The Kenyan movie Get Some Money was showing at Imax Cinemas at Garden City Mall. We were late, because we are always perennially late for everything but which creative person isn’t? It has been proven scientifically here. Which means we missed the red carpet experience. Thank goodness for selfies and phone cameras, saving lives since 2000. You can check out the really nice professional pictures of the event (which we are…
