Hello hello!

Once in a while I’ll be featuring people that I admire and get inspiration from…just to prove my modesty to y’all…it’s my blog but it’s not always going to be me me me!lol let’s face it, us Kenyans are a vain bunch, and I think the person who profits the most out of it is Kevin of Buoart!I bet that fella has no problems getting up for work!!Hope you guys are having a fabulous week so far. Let’s get right into it!

I’ve been following Barbora’s blog  and her instagram fashioninmysoul for quite a while now, simply because I find her sense of style endearing: simple,clean,stylish and occassionally edgy. She was kind enough to let me feature her on here…no diva behavior here *clap clap*! Although a lot of her pieces are high end, you can see that it’s every day items that you can find anywhere. I’ll be the first to tell you that I get a thrill from rummaging through piles and piles of clothes at thrift markets…ain’t no shame in my game! Anyone want to join me soon??


 Is fashion blogging your full time job or just part time?
I consider blogging my full-time job.
What inspired you get into fashion and who/what currently inspires you?
I was always interested in fashion, even as a child. I also liked taking pictures, so I thought that blogging would be connecting both things I like. Currently I am inspired by streetstyle, fashion shows and other bloggers.
What would you describe as your signature look??
I think that my signature look is simple, yet different, modern, yet classy.
What does fashion mean to you?
I like fashion, because it is one of the first things we notice about the others and also says a lot about us. I wear clothes to feel good and to inspire other people
How do you prep for a shoot and what’s your thought process when your pairing items together?
I just wear what I like. I don’t wear any special combinations for shootings, I simply wear what I usually wear, because I want to keep my blog authentic.
Have you heard of any African fashion bloggers or fashion brands? If yes what’s your take?
I unfortunately don’t know any African designers or brands.
If you could save only one thing in the world in terms of fashion pieces, what would it be?
Leather jacket, probably.
Have you had the chance to visit Africa yet? If yes, where? If not, would you like to? 
I’ve been to Egypt several times, but I would really love to see Cape Town and islands like Mauritius and Reunion.
Apart from killing it in fashion every goddamn time, what else do you do for fun?
I study, travel a lot, take pictures, meet my friends and just have fun.

What would you advice others to do in terms of self expression through fashion?

I think that fashion is something we express ourselves in, so don’t be shy, wear what you like and how you like it.

Hope you guys are just as infatuated with her as I am. If you’re looking for simple ways to pair your denims, leather jackets and other casual wear, I suggest you check her out for some inspiration.

On another note, I’m considering planning a small gathering of bloggers and anyone interested in socializing and getting to know each other on a personal level. I’ve noticed there are so many bloggers out there and Lord knows I can’t keep up if I don’t personally know the writer. Let me know what you think about having a little get together!

    Hey hey…
    I love her style.. And her honesty.

    Did you get to planning the get together? I’d like to join-although a part of me is apprehensive, introvert alert!!
    I recently started blogging, and it would be awesome to find out what the veterans do to stay consistent…

    Keep me posted.
