Shoe Things: 10 Shoe Quotes for the Fabulous Woman

Wooohoooo.. It’s Friday, Friday, – insert Rebecca Black’s Friday tune here . As my Kenyan brothers (and by brothers I mean both ladies and gentlemen) would say “Happy Furahi Day!!” It might be an old-school phrase. I’m not sure what the Kenyan kids these days are saying but who the hell cares, right? OK maybe I do. Just a tiny, very tiny bit. You see ol’ spot(if you don’t get this reference, do yourself a favour and go watch “The Great Gatsby” movie. Yes! Off course now!), I’d like to think of myself as forever young and totally cool. Kenyan youth please help me stay cool? Please? What is it that you say nowadays?

I really don’t know why I’m this excited Continue reading “Shoe Things: 10 Shoe Quotes for the Fabulous Woman”

 I usually would have had a difficult time dealing with a long weekend. That’s right, dealing would be the word- it’s exactly how I often feel when I have way too much time to do nothing.
You see, I tend to think of myself as a workaholic. Although, inclined towards being a workaholic is probably more accurate. I get anxious when I have time on my hands and not much to do with it. This past weekend (long weekend for Canadians) was definitely different for me.
I had a lot scheduled for the weekend. More relaxing fun activities, but stuff to keep me busy nonetheless. That, I am convinced, made all the difference. Shopping on Friday to kick off the weekend, a relaxed Saturday with friends and family, a day at the beach with the girls and a Monday house painting and barbecuing to crown it all, ah blissful weekend it really was. To be honest I had other pressing issues that I should have attended to but you know, I needed that break and I am so glad we had it. 
I certainly feel revived, rejuvenated, and ready for a new week.
How was your weekend-and for those who worked yesterday how is the week coming along?
A lot has happened over the past few days, the BET awards, Canada day festivities and you know, getting back to business. Here’s simply to wish you a great week filled with huge possibilities and to staying positive.
Life’s full of little pleasures so, work hard but enjoy the ride!

Here's to A Fabulous Friday

I don’t know about you but my week has been incredibly rewarding. I have been busy, true but I have accomplished a lot. I think this whole spring thing has a positive effect on me. The nice cool weather and the sweet caress of warm sunlight brightens every moment of everyday-most times I mean. Good thing we haven’t seen much rain this week. Tell me, how was your week?  
And now, it is yet another Friday. A day swollen with promise and excitement. I find that Fridays are like the great finale on a reality show. A toast to this finale!
Have a splendid weekend, you could go all out! But don’t do what I wouldn’t do!
Happy Fabulous Friday Memoirs!
