Fabulous Weekend

Have you ever felt so content at the end of a day that you do not even know what to say? My weekend has been one of great enjoyment and fun. I feel so grateful since I have had some not so interesting weekends lately.
I cannot believe how much God has blessed me of late.
Funny thing is that I did not expected any of the things that happened this weekend.
On Saturday, I woke up early and thought that I could do some general cleaning. Laundry, cleaning the house, all dishes, clean bathroom, very nice work done. Cooked lunch and then had the idea that I should go and watch a football game. Problem was I was all alone because B/f had a class to attend.
Then a friend called me and I had company and I was on my way to the Brown Bottle pub to watch the game. I have to say from this point on, the drinks started flowing and we had the best nyt ever. The dancing and the fun went on till late. I must say that I had so much fun.
Sunday then came and we slept until midday and then went out for lunch. The food, the walks, the shopping, the talks and the boyfriend made my afternoon. Am blessed and I love it and moreover, I am thankful for these blessings.
Hope you had a nice weekend too.

Fall and Halloween- (though we have none)

In my country (KENYA), there is nothing like Fall. Our seasons are not categorized this way so we just have rainy, dry, warm, cold and such kids of descriptions. Secondly, we do not celebrate Halloween, (sori but I do not even know the date for Halloween.) This means that I kinda felt left out in the blogosphere world lately. but instead of wallowing and running from the scene, I have decided to appreciate the peope who have these seasons and celebrations by participating in a link-up with much love, lilly. So please enjoy my fav fall fashion and continue linking up.

Women - The Heart and Soul of the World

Today, I have decided to pour my heart and soul into a topic that is so dear to my heart. Often times when I talk about it even with my boyfriend or male friends, I end up feeling angry.
First, I would like for you to recognize that I value men and think they are an important part of this world, but I do believe from the deepest part of my soul, that women make this world possible. If it were not for women, there would be nothing and no one in this world. The first and most important role that women play in this world is being mothers. Even in the modern world where gay men (am very supportive of all forms of sexuality) can have and raise children, they still need a woman to carry that child for them. A child's bond to a mother is unexplainable and that is why our mothers are always ready to stand up for us. 
Secondly, women nurture and help people to move forward. A woman will always be found encouraging and supporting their children to move past obstacles and build a life for themselves. Am not yet a mother but I fully appreciate the work of my mother in making things easier for me. Moreover, women can also be found encouraging their husbands, boyfriends and partners to move forward and make a life out of themselves.
However, I often ask myself the one question that i do not find an answer to, who is there to nurture and encourage women?? 
I fully understand that women have made huge steps towards gainig their equal rights in a male dominated world over the past few decades. Many women have fought long and hard so that we can have the freedom that we currently enjoy. However, despite all these strides in equality, women still remain under-appreciated and in some places highly marginalized. What else would explain the fact that in some countries, women are still not allowed to vote? That a woman is not supposed to speak before her male counterparts? That a woman is restricted in terms of dressing or mannerisms? That women are still not allowed to hold key positions in some companies and governments?
In the home, men often assume that its their right to have a woman cook for them, wash for them, keep the house clean and take care of the kids. Women do this, often with diligence and respect. Most of the times, they combine this with a corporate job that enables them earn a substantial amount of money. What comes out of this?? It is a rare thing to find a man who tells his wife, thank you for cooking or washing clothes. The woman continues to do her chores and reaches a point that they also believe that it is man's right to have all these things done for them. They no longer seek appreciation as they delude themselves that this is the way life is meant to be. 
What then could explain why many women continue to stay with a man who abuses them sexually, verbally, emotionally and physically?? Some women have lived in such a situation for so long that they have an illusion that this is the kind of life they are meant to live.  
So what do We do??
I may sound like a feminist which I am but we need to focus on empowering women and helping them know that they are supposed to live a free and fulfilling life. I live for the day when domestic violence will be a non-existence word. The well-educated and empowered women have to wake up and teach all other women that they are powerful and should be appreciated. A woman's support group is often in her female friends. A girl's night out is often the most relaxing since a woman is able to bare all her problems to her friends, without fear of being judged or abused. We should them form larger support groups that can help a larger group of women.
I am a woman, a strong woman for that matter. Although only 24, I believe we can have a better life for women only if we help one another. We know we have the power to run this world, all we have to do is harness this power by working together and lending a helping hand where possible.  
This is to all women out there, wake up and enjoy life. You are enough and do not need the approval of any man.
Love Always,

I have been feeling pretty down this week (Boyfriend problems) and so I have made it  my job to find things that will cheer me up. I love flowers but I do not receive them as often as I would like so I will indulge myself and enjoy while linking with The Vintage Apple.

What do I say??

From the previous post, it was obvious that I needed a drink and I have to say, I actually got what I asked for.
My weekend was filled with fun and merry naking. On Saturday evening, I went to a house party with a group of my craziest friends and it was awesome.
By 'awesome', I mean we got really drunk, danced like crazy, laughed and actually made noise all night.
Sunday, was spent in bed since I could not even lift my head. Monday is gone and now all I have is Tuesday and the hope of tomorrow.
Am grateful for the weekend, for friends and for fun times. They remind you that you are here to live your life and not be overpowered by the bad times.
Lots of Love.

Someone hit me with a pan, Please

Have you ever wished that someone could hit you with a pan on the head???
I know, that's crazy and a very stupid wish.
I also know that we should be careful what we wish for because we might just get it.
But surely, I could give quite an amount of money for an adrenaline rush right now. Am feeling a little blaaah blaaaaaah. Really, its like am just here, juuuuuuust here.
Do other people feel like this or is it just me.
Where is the energy?? Where are the loud laughter friends who make you laugh so loud that you fear that the landlord might chase you out of the house.
I really need some action right now, whatever, anything to make me feel alive. Right now, its like the days are just passing me by. I need action and I need it now.
Something to look forward to: Tomorrow night, am going to a party, am really hoping that I do not overdrink and go all crazy in an attempt to feeeel some life. But I highly doubt that I will be cool, I wanna be excited and if some drinking will get me excited, I will do it.
This is me

I hope I wont look like this
