Kenyans: Ugliest People in Africa.

So am just finding this out right now. Apparently without my knowledge and that of many people in Kenya, we have been named – TWICE – the ugliest people in Africa. Excuse me a minute…

Where was I when this was being decided? My vote matters.

Let me just give you a peek at whats being said;

Women from the Kikuyu community have small legs, totally no figures, and a little
exaggerated heads. They lack good behinds and those who have them look like inflated
balloons.They are shaped like pyramids turned upside down.A big upper frame and an almost invisible lower bit.

Am Kikuyu – well half but lets not go there- so am flipping offended that am apparently am an over turned pyramid and have a small exaggerated head. What are we? Reverse bubble heads!!  Just to clarify I  am well proportionate with a normal head. Thank you very much!!

Just a glimpse at some Kenyans who are kicking ass in the beauty department:

None of these women have bleached their skin, FYI! So look for some other judgemental crap to pile on us!

So what do you think, are we the ugliest in Africa?

Arm Hair: To Shave or not to Shave

 

a-300x212.jpg

I was in a meeting at the office and I saw my forearm hair- not armpits but arm hair –  and  wondered should I shave them off? We wax and shave our legs so why not arm hair? I need advice on this, should I shave my arm hair? If yes, what method should I use? Waxing sounds painful! Even shaving is painful cause I always cut myself, those little cuts are worse than a knife wound.

Might be shaving my hairy hands this weekend…

Man Crush Monday

If there’s one thing I can celebrate every Monday, is that gorgeous men walk among us. And one day every week, thanks to social media, we get a free pass to objectify you and not feel creepy. So anyway this week’s gorgeous numero 1 is courtesy of Vinnieh who showed me his post which was full of yumminess, so thank you. And did one especially for me, make sure to check it out, so that I can gloat some more.

So no.1 David Gandy. I simply have no words since I’ve been obsessing over it for a week.

No.2 William Levy. Am not saying his number two but I was inspired to put him on this list by David. They just seemed similar to me. I know his married and has kid or kids but in Swahili we have a saying, “macho hayana pazia”. Which loosely translated means eyes don’t have obstacles in the way. And his hot so congrats to the wife!

Just a by the way, did you know William Levy will be in the next Resident Evil? Ahhhhh Fan girling!!! Really we need to send gift baskets to their parents for their awesome genes.

Plus, because I do not like to forget the local boys, this is a shout out to the man I saw on the bus, guy in the black suit with those really manly glasses, you were perfect eye candy for Monday morning.

Something Beyond Us…

Its the simple things in life that surprise me. Waking up early, catching that beautiful sunrise. All the pinks, blues and gold, am left in awe.

Watching the mist as it clears off the mountain, the morning light catching all the colors of life.

Its a call. Its proof you are alive.

Magic isn’t just supernatural. Its everyday. That cool morning air. That sparkle that a new day is here. Its life.

Beauty is everywhere. You just have to be open to it.

Bad dye jobs & hair growth remedies…

dyeAround February I got a pretty bad dye job, not that i hated the color, but because my hair was falling out in clumps, hales or whatever you want to call it. I know freaky!! :O For a person who has never shaved her hair a day in her life, apart from little snips here and there, I was in tears when I went to the salon and had them shave off 70% of my hair. So warning to everyone out there who is getting a dye job, AVOID PEROXIDE!! It will only end in tears.

A_Girl_Throwing_a_Tantrum_Royalty_Free_Clipart_Picture_110323-150972-335053So now am stalking every possible video, blog, article, spam email, I can find on how to grow back hair quickly. Sadly, most of the spam emails are scams, videos show products I can’t find, blogs have weird recipes, eg I found one saying I should wash my hair with onion and radish juice, in my head I could already smell the ewww-ness I would be exuding!! The progress am making, not so bad since I’ve been growing it without any products for the past 4 months. But now am gonna stick to the basics; Castor oil, coconut oil, olive oil, some herbs and a lot of PRAYERS! One of the products am falling for is Jamaican Black Castor oil, it retails for about $10  and in Kenya that like Kshs950, our economy sucks so thats a lot, like worth two large pizzas a lot, or can last a family more than week a lot. The lengths we women will go to, to look good…
