Hey there. How are you? So the first half of the month is now behind us and the next half has just begun and I hope you are on the right track to achieving the goals you set out at the beginning of the year. As the title of the post suggests, I am so excited today because IT’S MY BLOG’S BIRTHDAY!!!! Same day last year I wrote my first post (which you can read here) and I can remember how ecstatic I was when I shared it and got some remarkable feedback and love from all of you. Since then, my blogging journey has  been nothing short of beautiful. And all I can say is THANK YOU!!!! I am grateful for the few minutes you set aside each week just to read my posts and even more appreciative for those who always like, leave comments and even share my posts with friends on facebook, twitter, instagram and even pinterest . The following has grown significantly over the few months and all I can say is THANK YOU and may God continue to bless you all.

As any journey goes, it is always important to pish the pause button, inhale, exhale and also self evaluate so as to see where you from, where are at presently and where you see yourself in the future. And with the blog I would like to start doing so by documenting this in the form of taking stock every first day of the month. So below is my first ever taking stock post. Enjoy and have a blessed month.

Making : A list of things that I need to achieve in July

Cooking : Nothing at the moment

Reading : Her Roots by J. J. Lanji Ouko for the second time. If you have not read it you need to. It is funny, relatable for those in their 20’s (especially if you live in Nairobi) and most of all inspiring. It will leave you wanting more

Wanting : A paying part time job at the moment…well…more like I need one

Playing : I got the keys by Dj Khaled ft Jay Z and Future

Wasting : No time researching for my project

Creating : Exciting content to share with you in the coming months. So invite more friends to follow and keep up with the website

Wishing : I knew what the future holds

Enjoying : Nikki and Jamie’s second last video. I am OBSESSED with them. They are super cute and AVA their daughter is the epitome of adorable. If you do not follow them, you need to.

Wondering :What the writer of game of thrones is thinking right about now

Loving : Tabitha Tongoi of cravingyellow.com. Her blog just gives me life and sunshine. I do not know her personally but I believe we were friends in another lifetime because I relate with her so much

Hoping :To be finished with my project in a month and a half

Marveling :At these beauties I just pinned on my pinterest

Smelling : Of coconut oil because I just moisturised my hair

Wearing : My yellow kikoy pants and an oversized zebra printed cardigan cause I’m just chilling

Following : Simplycyn on instagram. Her pictures are so BOMB and she inspires me to be more adventurous.

Noticing : That my hair has grown so much of late.

Thinking : About my handsome boyfriend and how I can’t wait to see him later

Feeling : Blessed that God has walked with me since day one and he continues to each and everyday

Bookmarking : Nothing at the moment

Opening : My water bottle

Giggling : As I reminisce last night’s shenanigans with my family

Feeling :Extremely grateful for all of you that keep coming back to the blog each and every week. You make me extremely happy with your comments and likes
