BY EVE CHEGE

Although Michelle Obama loves her designer dresses, and has wowed in gowns made by Alexander McQueen, Tracey Reese and Jason Wu, however she is also not afraid to shop a bit thrifty and go Kenyan on her outfits. She was spotted a couple of months back wearing a $35 dress from high-street fashion retailer H&M and recently she was seen wearing a top from the ASOS Africa Collection.

Not only has Michelle Obama decided to shop high-street but has also decided to support ASOS in their plight to help local communities in Africa by wearing their collection. ASOS is working with SOKO in Kenya to produce the ASOS Africa Collection and also enable underprivileged communities to establish sustainable businesses through their local craftsmanship. The scheme will give £5 to each ASOS garment sold directly to help the construction of SOKO’s new East Africa workshop in Nairobi later…

8 Things I Want To Tell Young Feminists

Thought Catalog

lendingmemlendingmem

1. Be open minded

A lot of young people who are passionate about their ideals (whether it’s liberal or conservative ideals) tend to get really excited when they start to learn more about them. This is great, you’re digging into the narratives you’ve heard your whole life for the first time. Just — do yourself a favor and try to keep an open mind. Don’t get to a place where everything you see is “yet another example of rape culture.” You don’t do feminism any favors by unquestioningly accepting everything you see, hear or read simply because it’s said by another feminist.

2. Having an education or being informed does not make you correct

If your argument as to why you are correct and someone else is incorrect rests on “you need to educate yourself” or “take a women’s studies class” you are in the wrong. Simply having “done…

9 Things That Separate You From Successful People

food for thought , aye.

Thought Catalog

Success begins on the inside right under your skin – forget about the outfit you wear but instead focus on the attitude you project. Our world is cruel and only the strong survive.

Successful people share a common trait – mental toughness. It’s a mindset they develop overtime based on their experiences, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. There’s something unique about these people that others can’t seem to grasp.

Here are the reasons why successful people are who they are:

1. They don’t worry about other people’s opinion

Worrying about other people’s opinion is a waste of energy that can be used towards making your dreams come true. It’s human nature to carry opinions about other people, but this only becomes a problem when it stops you from doing what you love.

The only person you need to please is yourself because at the end of…

1. When something in your life isn’t working, you change it.

2. Life doesn’t get to a place where you never feel overwhelmed from time to time. However, those times are few and far between and when they happen you figure out a plan and help yourself. You may call your parents or a friend, but it’s to vent, not to guilt them into solving your problems for you.

3. You seek out self-improvement. Not because you want to get beach bod ready, but because you value your physical and mental health and you want to improve yourself.

4. You have a home you are proud to bring people to. It could be a studio apartment, but you take pride in it, keep it clean, and have it decorated like a real person’s home.

5. Your dating relationships aren’t dramatic. If they end, it happens, you don’t try to…

Music Review (II)

Whoever said songs do not talk to people was dead wrong. I am a music fanatic although I can get a little choosy. My radio is always on and I survive through flipping through radio stations like I’m switching lanes or something. Id say few songs make me feel “some typa way.”  Lemme cut straight to the chase:
1. Sevyn Streeter: Wont Stop ft Chris Brown
Everything about this song just talks to me, the beats, tempo, lyrics, Chris Brown (uuuh child), Sevyn (no homo) the dancers, the scene, the TDH in there and all sorts of things. Won me over. I will not even lie to you.

2. Jhene Aiko ft Childish Gambino Bed Peace
Maybe I don’t get the drift but this song is about everything except Bed and Peace. Lol. Its poetic and real at the same time. Lets just say people are talented. Jhene sings her heart out without flinching a muscle and Gambino sounds so good without looking like he though long and hard to come up with lyrics. I wouldn’t believe if the two said they are working their behinds off. Thats what we call “music to my ears.” 

3. Britney Spears – Perfume
Maybe its the way it starts or its the pianos at the beggining, whatever it is, i love it. First heard it on a Saturday morning and in my sleepy state i just had to fumble in the beddings for my phone and shazam the damn jam!! Guess what, yeah, it was on repeat for the longest time ever. I like the way you expect her to hit a high note in the bridge and she goes all mellow.

4.Clean Bandit – Rather Be ft Jess Glynne
Here we go again with the beginning of songs. I fell in love with it the moment it started playing. Are those violins or what at the beginning? I think they are violins. How in love am I with that song? I however disagree with the video, I cant watch it on mute (that’s how I tell good videos from bad ones by the way). 

Just had to mention a few, I have long lists of these songs. They vary from time to time. What about you? Who feels the same about the above?
