#VoteSilvia for #KCA2016

Whenever you start a project, you don’t expect it to fail. That’s why you wake up, plan and work at it with all you have, even though some of us fall off the bandwagon faster than others. It is those that remain disciplined and faithful to their hustle that will get an eventual breakthrough or recognition.

Silvia Njoki is not a foreign name to the blogging fraternity. She is a leading Kenyan Stylist and veteran blogger. Her relentless desire to become a force to reckon with in the Pan-african fashion industry has borne fruit by being nominated for the prestigious Nickelodeon’s 2016 kids’ choice awards under the “Best Blogger (Africa)” category.

The 2015 BAKE Award winner of Fashion Blogger of the year is nominated alongside Aisha Baker from South Africa of Baked the Blog, Uche Eze from Nigeria of Bella Naija, and Theodora Lee from South Africa Of TheodoraLee.com. This is quite the stiff competition and we need to bring this award home because if she wins, Kenya wins too.

Other highlights from this year’s list of nominees include Adele, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, Chris Pratt, The Weeknd, John Boyega, One Direction, Sofia Vergara, Daisy Ridley, Chris Hemsworth, Nickelodeon’s very own Kira Kosarin, Jack Griffo, Jace Norman and more.

You know how we sometimes complain that Kenyan’s might never win against other African countries in such big competitions? The answer is simple, we hardly vote religiously. Fan or not, take your time to vote daily as many times as you possibly can. It might be last minute but we all know last minute has saved the day sometimes. We can as well call this fashionably late.

Voting is still open for all categories on Nickelodeon’s digital platforms including kca.Nickelodeonafrica.com; fans will also be able to vote on Nickelodeon’s Twitter feed @NickelodeonAfrica using #Vote #KCA #voteSilvia. We have until tomorrow morning, lets go ham.

Taking Stock 4

IMG_0287

Making: Notes on Time management from all the reliable sources on YouTube and whatever else I can trust. Beyoncé has the same hours I do, there’s something I must be doing wrong.

Cooking: Errrm, to be honest I haven’t cooked in a few days. I am not starving, I have been eating out a lot lately. I had lots to do today so I just fixed myself a sandwich although I had intended to make Chapati’s. (Back to time Management)

Drinking: Coffee. With my sandwich. I am trying to stop being a caffeine dependent but I don’t like the alternatives like Soya. I took that in high school I don’t even want to think about it.

Reading: Mostly course texts but I am on Outliers Malcolm Gladwell. I might be reading it for the rest of my life. Cue for, don’t borrow. The basic rule to success I have learnt so far is the 10000 hour rule. That’s why you are about to see some changes. Especially here.

Wanting:  To go back-packing and explore.

Playing:  For the better part of the day I have been listening to In2 by WSTRN on replay alternating with Cake by the Ocean by DNCE. I love In2 the remix only because Chip decided to make a comeback on it. 😛

Wasting: Nothing at all. Or I cannot notice what exactly it is that I might be wasting at the moment. Or maybe I am and I just don’t know. Like someone having a problem and not noticing, well. Maybe I am not wasting anything at all. Information. I have way too many drafts that I do not know when I will ever publish. Some information might be obsolete by the time I figure how to put it together but we shall see.

Sewing: There are a few buttons that have fallen off a few of my fabrics, after folding my laundry I tried finding my only remaining needle but I couldn’t find it. I went to a nearby mall and the whole maaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllll doesn’t have a sewing kit? Ok, I only went to the supermarket. I’m yet to fix the buttons.

Wishing: Nothing specific really but a home cooked meal would be good. Do you guys ever crave a home cooked meal prepared by someone else for a change? I just might crash at yours if you are a throw down bigwig 😀

Enjoying: Rihanna’s new album ANTI. Although I would like to know Anti what? Bullshit? Antichrist? Antifeelings? I particularly love “love on the brain” and “Consideration”. I have heard work too many times I just want to let it rest and see if I might go back to liking it.

Liking: How my stubbornness has saved me from headache.

Wondering: Why my windows 10 is being such a prick. We are not on abacus I should be able to have a million tabs open and still work fine!!! Dammit!!!

Loving: Jungle green jackets, somebody say obsessed.

Hoping: That I could really get to be good at managing my time fairly, I could use some sanity. Pressure has never been good for anyone.

Marvelling: At how many people were anticipating Leonardo DiCarprio’s win at the Oscars. It had been a long time coming. 22 years bruv!!! Lesson learnt: Keep doing it, patience pays.

Needing: A clone.

Smelling: Thann aromatic wood hand lotion, smells like therapy.

Wearing: Blue Jeggings and white Sauti sol Vest.

Following: A number of people on snapchat. Miss Kihoro is hilarious. Her Meru accent will floor you. Before you join, please know it can waste your time and make you vain.

Noticing: That this is my fourth #TakingStock. What a waste of information, right? A lot has been going on in my life I could’ve documented it. It has been a freaking whole year!!

Knowing:  I don’t know anything. Hahaha, I have nothing figured out. This is where is use the excuse that I took “stay foolish” a little too serious.

Feeling: Cues in Numb- August x B.O.B

Bookmarking: Lately I have been reading physical texts…… and by the way the Adele Dejak tags are superb bookmarks. Double win.

Opening: Nothing really. Wish I could unwrap the new month now that its 1st.

Laughing: at the conversations Kimmy, Chemu and I used to have. Tears. The kind of friends you spend 80% of your time laughing when you meet up.

Feeling: Great!! I have been able to have 5 posts on the blog in 2 days. Because yesterday was a leap year. And I felt extra productive.
