Selfie! Selfie! Selfie! Oh the word Selfie. It is safe to state that, in this day and age, if you have no clue what that means you have been living under a rock.  World over, selfies have been taken of individuals (no age restrictions) or/and with friends/celebrities/monumental buildings and views, and have flooded the social media platforms for years. Having agreed on the above,  we all understand that a selfie is defined as a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared (not necessarily) via social media.

When Jacaranda season rolled around, we decided to go with it not only for the competition’s sake, but also to raise a bit of awareness on the benefits of appreciating and taking care of the trees around us. Other than for aesthetic purposes,…

Most of my jewellery is created from recycled metal (brass and aluminium).

One of these prayers is the fact that Rajinder, a well known metal caster and our neighbour next door at the Kiambu showroom.
