K1 Flea Market


I bet most of you do not know of the K1 Flea Market Sundays yet ,yes?Well,neither did i until some time last week when i came across one of my Friends’ Insta-stories and i just couldn’t wait for Sunday to get here so that i could drive there and experience some K1 Flea market vibe.



We got there at around 10am in the morning when they had just finished setting up and there was already no free parking space( be sure to find Kenyans turned up as early as that even on a Sunday morning in any cool place in town) but we were so impressed by the beautiful set up.



That was the 8th edition of the Flea market which was created by Kaz Lucas and it happens every Sunday. They have amazing brunch which is affordably priced ,and there are this Fashion stands with some amazing unique pieces of fashion statements from shoes,jewellery,fabrics,clothes and make up which are crazy affordable. Its a Flea market ,so be sure to find some good and unique stuff and be sure to mingle too.






this little bakery right at the entrance by patricia has some of the most delicious cakes and cookies ever..


So there you go guys ,i just gave you a new Sunday plot after Church which am sure you will get to love and enjoy.


Its mothers day weekend and i do not have anything special planned but that doesn’t mean i do not celebrate my beautifully amazing mother and all the other mothers i know. I appreciate mothers,i have not experienced a love as great as that one of a mother in both receiving and giving ends.


Mothers are blessed with so much wrapped up in one ,not even words could describe who a mother is. So lets appreciate and celebrate our beautiful mothers ,mother figures,aunts or simply anyone who has played the role of a mother in your life. They are special and a blessing in our lives and they should be made to feel so because they deserve it.


Thank you for stopping by ..:)

Enjoy the weekend friends …

Lets play cute and sassy


Of a random mini fun shoot in a cute little custom made sassy skirt and as usual ,some flowers. I love wild interesting flowers but am still very typical when it comes to roses.



As cliche as it is; work without play makes Jack a dull boy ,is a true phrase. And when a toddler is your model ,then you have to incorporate play in between shoots and just let her be in her truest self.




This is Sheyce being playfully cute but very conscious of the lens capturing her.She mesmerizes me with her artsy character and free spirit,its always a good day when entirely spent with her.


Today ,lets keep it that brief ..:) Happy New Month !!!

Thanks for stopping by

Waceke & Sheyce



Sheyce joined school early this month and she seems to love and enjoy it more each day. Her becoming a school girl is one of the reasons we have been MIA for a minute but now that we have sort of gotten the hang of it and known how to organize ourselves better,i can confidently promise to have blog posts up every week.


At first i was scared of letting her go,she still seemed too young to be in school,i wondered how she would survive a day without whining “mommy this,mommy that,mommy come,mommy food ” ,i was scared of what her witty curiosity would get her into without my keen eyes on her 24/7 but either way i knew i had to let her blossom on her own.


The level of maturity that has taken place in the last three weeks is impeccable,sometimes i just stare at her and wonder who she is because the last time i checked my daughter wouldn’t sit still or let me be without her always trying to push all my buttons.



She now listens keenly,communicates better,acts independent ,Thinks before she acts and understands a lot more.Its beautiful to watch her blossom into this amazing little person and i can only imagine how she will be by the end of the year.


I learned that sometimes to blossom into this beautiful flower you ought to be ,you have to own your space and be let to grow. To have someone have your back when you fall is okay but you have to grow,mature  and develop in your own space.


Have a productive week ahead and may you Blossom into a beautiful flower 🙂

Rise and Shine


It has been roughly a month since we last had a blog post up,the year 2017 seems to have caught us a little off guard and now is when it feels like we are just settling down ;non the less we are grateful to be where we are today.


These amazingly beautiful pictures of the coastal sunrise have been sitting in my laptop for over two months now,i did not know where or how to share them until now.


We all have days when we feel so demotivated and like the universe is conspiring against us, it is okay to have such days,it is okay to feel like you want to give up,it is okay to pause and meditate before embarking on the journey.We are all human and life is still life.It is not fair sometimes and sometimes it feels like it favors others and leaves others out in the cold.It is just life.



But here is the thing about life;it is beautiful,it is full of experiences ;both good and bad,it is  a gift ,it is what we make out of it. It is said,to push through life you have to be resilient ,you have to have the will to do so,you have to be positive and a free spirit.



Over the months i have learned how to not entertain negativity ,how to always be positive even when things are going south,how important it is to mold my character,perceptions and thoughts through the people i choose to keep close,the books i read,the conversations i engage in and the content i watch. And most importantly how the impossible is possible and how we shouldn’t limit ourselves yet we know we have all the potential to do it big. Believe in the beauty of your dreams,yes it is a cliche saying but trust me,just believe in them and never let an opportunity go just like that,it might be the only one you will get,so jump on it and make the best out of it.



Every morning you get to see another day ,choose to be a better person,choose to be Kind,choose to transfer positive energy to those around you,choose to smile ,choose to show gratitude,choose to be courteous and choose to Rise above all odds to shine and shine really bright.



May your week be productive..

Love for the Beach Life


This is the second last post on our trip to Mombasa . I promise .:) I was to speed it up a little bit but ,hey ,life keeps happening and throwing me off balance and am here trying to make that lemonade.


On this day we took a boat ride from Mtwapa to Pride Inn Beach Resort and it was such a beautiful experience and very scenic . Why does the coast have be so beautiful though? Sheyce was a little bit more terrified because one could feel the tide more compared to the boat ride we did in Watamu but either way she had a smirk on her face which was close to a smile. Lol.






Apart from the Ocean exciting her ,this time she just wanted to ride on a Camel and she just cant stop talking about her awesome experience on such a tall creature. She is sometimes scared of heights but if asked ,she could ride on a camel all day ,everyday.



Our daughter is a huge fan of superman that she even calls herself a super girl. She loves any cartoons that have a lot of heroic and rescue patrols in them. The other day she told me she wants to be a police so she could drive in a fast car and save the day. I do not have anything against the police but i would smile wider if she said she wanted to be an Engineer maybe.



But what i admire most from her ,is how she for instance picks a character from her favorite cartoons and believes she can be as good as them and does everything possible in her small world to become like her favorite character. That’s one thing to borrow,all you need to do sometimes is just believe . Believe in yourself,believe in your dreams,believe in your potential ,believe in your path,Believe in a higher force to help you get where you want to be in Life. Believing is seeing !


Thank you for stopping by .

Sun,Sand,Swim & Shores


Why we all love the coastal region is because of its ever sunny days ,the ticklish feeling on your feet from the sand ,the relaxing feeling one gets after a swim in the Indian Ocean and the amazingly beautiful shores where one gets to create memories of a lifetime.



Kenya boasts of having some of the most beautiful beaches in the World which are big,scenic and said to have a great marine wildlife.



Sheyce’s best part was playing with the sand without me screaming at her to stop touching ‘dirt’ ,i happen to be one of those parents who never let their kid play with dirt or stones ,i just cant refrain from imagining how much dirt there is in the dirt (does that even make sense?). She made castles,threw the sand at her baba and got herself all covered with the sand.




Capturing These two ..  Beautiful frozen moments ..

The beauty of my country ,Kenya ,is real ,you need to feel it and experience it first hand. Its worth it ! I love and enjoy documenting sheyce’s adventures and explorations with the hope that i inspire someone to want to see the World and feel the different magic every place one visits has.


Thank you for stopping by.

Feliz Navidad


The other day i was looking back at my wish list for this year which i wrote a few days before last Christmas and it seems like days literally flew. I barely got most of those things done,i actually ended up doing better things which i wouldn’t have expected to have done this year.



Now as we get into the Christmas mood ,we are grateful for giving us all the support,love and good criticism. We have never had any bad or rude comments on any of our social media  platforms and we truly appreciate that.



This is Sheyce’s 3rd Christmas and now that she understands it a little bit,i took her to the mall to see Santa and the humongous Christmas tree.Garden City Mall had the most beautiful Christmas decorations this year and simply brought the season mood to life. Sheyce was so excited and now she cannot wait to spend the rest of the season with family. I hope to put up Christmas decorations in my house next year and let her participate,she would love it.







Year 2016 wasn’t the very best but it still turned out alright ; The blog grew and the content keeps getting better (at-least we believe so),met amazing people who played and are still playing a major role in making the blog better and into a full blown website next year,Sheyce got nominated for the Most Photogenic baby girl award by Tabasamu Mwanangu and we got to explore more places and created relationships with most of them,basically ,its been a year full of growth and good happenings but like we know life to be,good and bad days alternate but we pulled through just fine; probably stronger and better.



Till next year guys ,we send you all our love during this festive season …….


#Sings ……..

Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad

Prospero año y felicidad.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Lake Elementeita “Sentrim”


A few days to Christmas,ten days to be exact ;usually i would have already taken a break to enjoy the festive season but i have loved the progress i have made with the blog and i feel some guilt to pull off a disappearing act till early 2017. So, hey ! will keep the momentum and have posts up every week and on good days ,twice a week… 🙂




see sheyce…lol.. she was still in the air..look closely..lol

The other day,on Sheyce’s actual birth date ,12th December we decided to check out a place my mom always talks about,Sentrim Elementeita lodge and my oh oh ,isn’t it one of the most scenic places we have been to yet ?! It being a holiday,the place had been booked for an event but we were so lucky to get there just as they were wrapping up .





Sentrim is very beautiful but what makes its even mooooooore beautiful is its amazing view of one of the biggest lakes we have in Kenya; Lake Elementeita . The Lake does not have any animals and it is not as deep as other lakes.






We took at least two hours to feel,experience ,capture and make memories of the beautiful and magical discovery we felt we had made. This is a place we hope to frequent as much as we can and get to even experience some family sun-downers (that would be a total haven).






And heeeey,its that holiday season guys,make use of it while it lasts,do a road trip and check in at the beautiful Sentrim Lodge and be sure to have a blast.



Lets Explore Kenya !!!

Sheyce turns 3


Hey guys …Sheyce officially turned three yesterday and it feels amazingly great to see her grow. We held a small birthday lunch party with family and close friends and we are so grateful to all who came through and made it happen! And to my parents for letting us use their home and for all the amazing support we get from them as we raise Sheyshey.


Being young parents ,and getting to have the few friends we have and family as our support system pushes us to do better than we ourselves expect and we end up surprising ourselves at how well this whole parenting journey keeps turning out.

We pray she continues to grow as a God fearing girl who will know and love God,to be a well rounded kid who will excel in everything she does,to be extremely talented and gifted and to have a great personality that will uphold all the values and morals we intend to instill in her.


This is how the Birthday lunch went down………

Food…food..and more food…Lol!!



Then came the trendy three Fun photo booth..:)









Njambi Oduor ,Sheyce and I spent the whole of Saturday baking these cakes and it was so worth it. Sheyce loved it ,and she couldn’t get enough of the rainbow cake and the cupcakes… Njambi did most of the work and we really appreciate that.



this chocolate cake was diiiiivine…


Sheyce was so excited to see herself on the cake…

Cake cutting …. …. ….

Thank you so much to our friends ,families and to all of you guys who never miss to read our posts and even take a minute to leave a comment or two every now and then,we appreciate and we are sending lots and lots of Blessings your way.
