Kitchen Chronicles |: Nothing tastes better than a good English breakfast/brunch with all the works! I love baked beans on my food!
Curly Hair Chronicles |: New hair, don't care... lol. I've got that new hair feeling that most women go through from when you just newly place some lovely hair extensions in. Can't beat this feeling. I'm loving the transformation...

Royal blues at 'Sukh Nivas' or the 'Hall of Rest' in City Palace, Jaipur. This is the official residence of the descendants of the former rulers of Jaipur. The wedgewood blue is breathtaking. Repost |: @maishaconcept
Nuggets of Wisdom |: You don't have to suddenly become an overnight success. Love what you do while taking baby steps. Keep working hard and smart and don't let the internet or social media pressure you too much!
Curly Hair Chronicles |: An old throwback photo but a really good looking one and in other news... my natural hair is finally growing! I have come a long way since when I used to cut my hair. Sometimes, I get frustrated with the journey and want to chop it all off but for now...I'm still going strong. I've been keeping my hair care regimen simple though. I use @ogx_beauty hair products and they have been treating my hair good. What is your hair care regimen?

A quick note for your Monday - Momentum is necessary for progress. It doesn't matter how you feel. What matters is that you take the next step which hopefully leads to a series of steps in the right direction. Keep moving forward!
Happy mother's day to all the incredible moms out there. I see you and I appreciate everything you do for both your kids and in making the world a better place! You will never really know or understand a mom's hustle until you become one yourself. Do you agree? | Photo: @mondaygirlto
Spring is in and you might need a new tote bag to go with it! I like the yellow one but they are all beautiful. These cuties are from @flyingtiger and you can purchase them online via www.flyingtiger.com...they are going pretty fast so if you're interested, get yours quick!
Because at the end of the day, all you can really do is make sure that you work hard, be creative, believe in yourself and be confident in your abilities. These are the cornerstones of life and they are what gets you ahead of the rest if you remain consistent. We all need to do our best in getting better at these things on a daily basis! Do you believe this to be true? Have a great day!
Accessories can completely transform the way you look and alter your appearance. @sanaalathan looks amazing with this combination of statement necklaces from the South African Zulu and Kenyan Maasai tribes!
Now that hot weather is coming along, you might need one of these handwoven fans to blow a little light breeze your way on a hot and stifling summer day. Take them with you to a picnic or an outdoor festival and use to keep cool. They are made from Burkina Faso and are available via the @reflektiondesign shop!
Have a sunny and fun-filled Friday everyone! I've got that Friday feeling and looking forward not just to a good day at work but a fantastic weekend since the weather has been quite sunny on my end.

Throwback to when I decided to visit @kultrunmarket These bags have me dreaming about spring flowers and I cannot wait for the weather to finally get warmer as it rightfully should be getting at this time of the year. Cute bags like these are great for work or leisure and are the perfect spring accessory or gift.
Stepping into Thursday with a serious throwback to when I got all dolled up by the amazing @boudoirrose for a photo shoot with @znakdesigns... Now I don't wear make-up in this way very often, therefore I felt so pretty and pampered. It was nice to look different for a change. More pics coming up soon! I think she did a great job on my face. The smokey eyes are perfect and it definitely enhanced my facial features. What do you think and do you wear make-up often?

As we enter into a new work week with Monday, I leave you with this quote by Maya Angelou which says If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. This always reminds me that it is not what happens to us in life that matters, it is how we react to it. Our attitude and actions do matter in the way that we handle life challenges. I can only hope that we learn to manage the difficult times with grace, grit and the will to always grow in the midst of our circumstances. Happy Monday!

It's Tuesday but the week is not over yet. This is just another friendly reminder to own your personal space and surround yourself with positivity. Your vibe does attract your tribe. Only keep the positive people in your life. I used to be all over the place...mingling with all sorts of people then getting into problems with focus or clarity and wondering where I was going wrong until I learned that I need to protect myself and guard the types of energy or influences that I allow into my life and personal space. You can do the same as well. | Photo: @mondaygirlto How else do you stay positive and attract the right people into your life?
It is the simple things that make us look beautiful and stylish. Accessorize your wrist with this cute and unique multicoloured beaded cuff from @bantu_project
This looks so interesting! It is kind of like a malt drink without the fizz and is made of fermented corn and caramelized sugar called Asaana, originally from Ghana. |: Video from @africanchow I would definitely love to try this drink out. Would you?
Sights and sounds of fresh braids. This is when you can't stop feeling yourself because you just got your hair done. It's a really good and fun feeling to have when you know that you look and feel great on the inside. Does anybody else get this feeling sometimes?
African baskets are now more than just storage units, they make for a very nice piece of decoration. This one is from @indego_africa and it looks like it could double as a fruit basket for the kitchen.
