Bring Me To Life : Maisha Spa

Hello Loves, Running around like a headless chicken pretty much became a routine in my life last year but after completing my MBA course work last December, I managed to have some downtime which allowed me to reevaluate my work-life balance. I decided I needed a healthier lifestyle not just work work work (couldn’t write that without singing Rihanna’s Work ). So this year I’m doing things differently and enjoying every step of it all. Here is a list of my Do’s and don’t’s to achieve a healthy 2016. I’m drinking more water ( honestly, those who know me know how much I just hate water! I could go a week without drinking water but having a water bottle is certainly making things easier! The result: my skin feels absolutely flawless Green tea – Now I have become a green tea fanatic especially after taking a break (hopefully permanently) from the adult grape juice! I’m loving what it does to me! Green tea with jasmine, green tea with blackcurrant! You name it! Quitting Soda(Coca-Cola)  – now this has been painful!! especially when around Miss B. who can consume a whole litre! Nevertheless, I’ve learned to substitute it with sparkling water! Honey- loves, I […]

In Another Life

Hello Amor Lovers, I know I had promised you a valentine day post but for those who follow me on Instagram (Lizmarami) would have noticed that it caught me out of town on duty training, However I did take time off to spend this day of love in the city of love Paris with people I hold so close to my heart, and as I sat at the airport waiting to board, I couldn’t help but appreciate love penning a short poem, In another life. Can’t remember the last time I wrote poetry (I think I was in 2nd year) so I hope I’m not too rusty and hope you enjoy it.   IN ANOTHER LIFE In another life Your Love was kind and gentle It quenched my forbidden desires It anchored my sanity It was my safe haven We waltzed under the stars to every Beethoven symphony As I fell deeper in love with your two left feet…   In another life I forgot about the one who got away You engraved your love in my soul You gave me butterflies at every embrace We were the admiration and true comprehension of love You were my answered prayer, You told […]

We are one!!

Hello, my loves! happy happy happy new year!! Can you imagine we are one!!! So much emotion inundates me as I write this. And as much as I haven’t been that consistent with my postings, the love and support from you all has never ceased, always overwhelming and I can’t thank you all enough.  For this sole reason, to reciprocate my love and to celebrate my blog, I will give you a little bit of insight on how it all began, what led to the birth of Amor, and why Amor. This is a very personal story but I think I’m ready to share it. I’ve healed and am at peace with myself. About a year and a half ago or more…. I certainly wish I could say I was heart broken, but I cant because it was never love (I think it was mere desperation to settle down). So Let’s just say I was betrayed. It was the most shocking and absurd thing I had ever had to experience. For a split second I felt like I should have been 19 when this happened, maybe it wouldn’t be so brutal to deal with. The betrayal however never even came from the […]

My Make up Journey!

hello loves, I had totally missed you! So today let me talk to you about beauty by sharing my make up journey!! Do you know make up first started with Egyptians?? Ironically that’s where I first learnt how to wear make up! 2009! I’m dressed up and all ready to go and this typical Kenyan girl picks her best outfit and applies baby oil on her face and lip balm, (my excuse for using baby oil, it was winter and i can’t stand a chapped forehead so don’t judge!) So I rushed to my new found egyptian soul sister’s room ready to go for my first night out on the streets of Egypt, (be rest assured I had donned what I thought was my ‘Sunday best’ outfit) the shock on her face as she asked if I was going out without makeup was one I will live to remember infact I would have sworn the face she made was the same one my pious mother made when i first wore leather tights! Too sincere, too fresh to forget! she didn’t even wait for an explanation, she just grabbed my hand and started this whole transformation on my face, I call it transformation […]
