nickelodean kids choice awards nominee

This was not an easy shoot, after driving for hours in the sun, trying to find this cliff. My team and I had exhausted our water resources, we were tired, hungry and almost ready to give up. It was also not easy getting to the top of the cliff to find the limitless sea of rocks, even with my heels in hands, I tripped a few times.  But sometimes I just want something bad enough to keep pushing myself despite the obstacles. It was almost noon and the harsh midday light was not working in our favour. My makeup was literally melting off my face and I was ready to quit, but I hoped against all odds.  And we made it!  The views from the top were breathtaking and I remember gasping and taking a moment just to soak it all in. And when we started clicking, as if by a miracle the sun dimmed and gave way to this soft, dark cloud letting  just the right light slip through.

silvia-njoki-nickelodeonSaying that I am overwhelmed would be an understatement.  I have been nominated for the 2016 Kids Choice Award for Favourite African Blogger!!!! See God you guys…I literally broke down in joy when I received these news 3 weeks ago and I can now finally share it with you! I have been nominated alongside three other very prominent African fashion and lifestyle bloggers – Aisha Baker and Theodora Lee both from South African, and Uche Pedro from Nigeria. I am truly humbled to be in such company and more than grateful to all of you who have given me your love and support through the years allowing me to reach this high point in my blogging career.

For a very long time I have had this dream of launching a Vlog, and today you are witnessing the posting of my very first ‘home made’ video. It has taken me many, many hours of hard and sometimes even frustrating work to put it together, since I am not an experienced videographer and definitely had to learn all the editing skills by trial and error.  And here it is; and to be honest I am quite pleased with how it turned out and excited to share it with you and the world.

athleisureI am so excited to share with you this new trend that I have recently warmed up to. There is no doubt that most of us have followed the global shift towards a much healthier lifestyle including better eating and drinking habits and lots of physical exercise, whenever we have the time and opportunity.

sylvia njokiI wore this outfit a while ago, but honestly hesitated to share the photos here, since I felt that they lacked edge and depth. I also heard comments like “Why didn’t you wear some more striking/colorful shoes” or “how come you didn’t put on a few bangles, bold earrings or a neck piece”  And as much as I have a high level of style confidence, I was resolute on not sharing.
