Finally on getting the Cardio train

Finally on getting the Cardio train

Oh, my… when is Toronto gonna finally transition into full summer mode? these past few weeks have been so wishy-washy it’s insane. Last week’s weather was honestly a Kenyan girls dream! The weather was just verging on about 30 degrees and it was super sunny. I, of course, had to take full advantage of the beautiful weather and I went on a few runs.

*I want to start off by saying that if you are working out. It is so important that you are working hard for how you feel not necessarily how you look. Although it is defiantly a plus, you are always happiest when your body is happiest…*

We all got 99 Problems but Our Skin Colour Ain’t One

Hey guys! It’s been a while, I know… I have recently promised myself to post/write when I feel inspired and have a topic I really want to speak about. I do not want to run a blog that has forced and uninteresting content, so please bare with me as I try to figure this whole thing out.

Today I’ve sat down by my computer listened to some great music and I’ve written what has truly been on my mind for a while and I hope you guys enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Sunny Satur-daze🌞❤️

Hey Lovelies,

This was such a great weekend. The feeling of with reconnecting with someone you had drifted apart from is so heart warming. This weekend felt just like old times, we used to go on long walks and just talk about life and rant about all sorts of things, we would eat everything but the kitchen sink together and watch pointless videos and laugh for hours! I genuinely feel so bad for my parents cause we are ALWAYS laughing about something.  We’ve only been friends for about 2 years and we went for months without talking but now its like nothing has changed. weird how that works eh?

Anyways, the weather was soooo great and ! got to take a couple pics so here ya go!

Toronto Eats: Short and Sweet

This is the cutest bake shop I’ve ever been to. I have been stalking their instagram for months now! They’ve got the craziest icing filled cookies, jumbo hot chocolates and cupcakes. This is definitely the place you go to when you’re trying to avoid the winter struggles. The cute environment and happy staff really tie it together. They’ve got a pink neon sign that says “Butter Cream Dreams” and I’m all for it! I got the Cake! Cake! Cake! Hot chocolate with whipped cream and a vanilla cake topping. This is definitly a go to place if you live/ find your self in the Yonge and Eg area 🙂

You can find them on 2025 Yonge ST or 1945 Avenue RD

Overall I think this place deserves a solid 4.2/5

Toronto Eats: Lil Baci

Lil Baci is an Italian restaurant near Yonge and Davisville (they also have a location near Queen and Carlaw) This quaint restaurant is great for brunch, lunch and dinner. They offer lovely soups, sandwiches, pasta and pizzas. The location itself is very modern and marble filled. It’s not too busy on weekdays during lunch hour but on the weekends it tends to get pretty packed. The ambience is so great, the waitresses are super engaging and really make the experience better. One of the waitresses noticed me taking pictures for my blog and she said ” I wish I had known, I would’ve been much nicer” then giggled a bit. This really goes to show how quirky and fun their staff are.  I got the Rigatoni Pasta with a beef and pork ragu. It was absolutely divine, the combination of pork and beef with the cheesy pasta was perfect for a cold winter day! As a tea lover, I was incredibly impressed with the tea menu. They have a few specialty tea blends that all seemed intriguing. Check out their menu  and definitely stop by one of their locations.

Rate: ❤❤❤❤/5

 

 

Back Home // Kenya 2017

 


Hey guys! This post is waaayyy over due but I promise there is reason behind the madness! Yesterday (March 4th) marks 4 years of living in Toronto. So much in my life has changed and the time has really flown by! Earlier this year I got to go back to Nairobi for the first time since I moved. You never know how people are really doing when all you see are their posts on Facebook , Instagram or Snapchat. social media is just social, it doesn’t show you the real, intimate and personal details of your best friends lives. It’s incredibly hard to maintain a relationship with people when your thousands of miles apart but boy am I grateful for the people I’ve managed to stay close with.
