Mama Knows Best

Mothers seem to always know. They know when you need to put on a jumper because this 25 degree sunshine won’t last. They know when you need to get to bed early because you’re running yourself down and if you keep that pace you’ll end up sick. They know when you […]

Bend, Brunch & Bottomless Mimosas

“I’ll go to the gym tomorrow” that’s basically my health regimen. There are times when I’m “good” I’ll go to the gym four or five times a week for a few months; then I’ll take one day off, which turns into two days off, and eventually snowballs into four months […]

All Day Every (Fri & Satur) Day

What is it about drinking till the early morning hours that makes you so hungry? The dancing? The small talk? The fact that with each passing hour you’re creeping further into breakfast territory and further away from “socially acceptable”? Whatever the case, it can be the best of times and […]

I Have Interests

I promise I do. Although food is one of the biggest loves of my life, there are times when I’m not eating, or reading about recipes, or looking at other bloggers’ food adventures. There are times when it’s quieter, where I fill my time with the Internet, Netflix, and music as […]

The Cure

Well, today’s the […]

Hallmark Holidays: Valentine’s Day

Oh the pressure of Hallmark Holidays. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year, the list is endless. Often it can feel lonely if you don’t conform to the celebratory norm wether you have a significant other or not. If you don’t have a significant other on Valentine’s […]

You Asked For It

And by “you” I mean @confusedconfuser who commented on a blog post I wrote saying she’d live vicariously through my posts about Nairobi Restaurant Week (P.S. if you’re reading now, thanks for reading all the way from Seychelles! 🙂 ). But I also mean “you” in the broader sense… All […]

Nairobi Restaurant Week 2016

*Oprah voice* It’s baaaaaaaaaack! Nairobi Restaurant Week is here! Nairobi Restaurant Week is here! I can almost hear the chants of all you excited foodies. #NRW2016 is a food-lovers Christmas. I probably won’t sleep well on Wednesday night in anticipation for the beginning of NRW on Thursday. My restaurant reservations […]
