About two months ago, I decided to put my styling career on the back burner and work as a blogger and newspaper columnist full time. It’s been a learning experience as I try to adjust the sails. With that said, you should expect more frequent content here. I cannot tell you how happy I am to be back on this space and to be able to share with you tidbits of my life and what I have been up-to. I also hope you like the new look of the site. Once every year I like to give this baby a makeover and this is the result of a one week on and off creative battle with my IT guy. Let me know what you think …
A few months ago, Yves Rocher, a renowned international skin care brand launched their presence in Kenya. This half a century old French family owned and managed company which stands for a total commitment to using only organic compounds in their beauty and skin care products, called on their customers to join them in a customer appreciation party at the One off Contemporary art gallery in Nairobi – perfectly tucked away in a little forest away from the city.
After weeks of working non-stop, I was ready to take a few moments to slow down and relax, meet new people, enjoy some bubbly and delicious canapes. We mingled, talked skin care and some guests even got mini make-overs as we enjoyed the art at the gallery which aims to represent some of the most established artists in Kenya and East Africa. The exhibitions are an array of art objects ranging from paintings, sculptures to all forms of decorative art. I hope that these photos bring you at least a sparkle of the excitement at this get-together, and that you will not hesitate to drop into one of the newly opened Yves Rocher shops in Westgate and Village market to seek what’s perfect your skin.
