Material things I currently love more than people.



Assalam Aleykum Wrahmatullahy Wabarakatuh
Eid Mubarak Everyone!



Did you guys have an amazing Eid? I certainly hope so. Mine was amazing in the most eccentric ways possible. Eid for me was full of good food, good company and good vibes until I found out certain things that completely broke my heart. Let’s just say that these particular matters have more to do with the heart than anything else.And we all know how frustrating matters of the heart can be.
Furthermore, I got some more bad news today and we could say that I’m not in my peppiest mood at all. I could even say that I’m sad, but that’s a story for another day. Luckily, we have all these materialistic specimens to cheer us up a little bit. For me, these are the few things that put some joy in my life and a little spring in my step. I don’t know what exactly it is but when I look at them I feel some type of way within my heart. It’s weird how mere objects could have a sentimental impact on the human heart. Maybe it’s the way they look or what they remind us of I don’t really know. I guess I feel grateful when I look at them and i think gratitude is always a beautiful feeling to experience.

Thrifted Loves
River Island Cross body
I think it’s clear by now that I love thrifting. Not only is it affordable but you can get some pretty amazing and unique stuff if you know where to look; like this gorgeous bag. It's huge and spacious meaning i can carry all my junk inclusive of my camera and still look like a normal person. Plus, the details on this bag add such a subtle but fleeky vibe to it.

Bought at: Toi Market // Price: Ksh 800

 Ankle Strapped Wedges

Bought at: Street Vendor Nakumatt Prestige // Price: Ksh 200

I have officially accepted that if every girl has a ‘thing’, my thing is definitely wedges. I couldn’t care less for heels even though I love how they look on other girls, I simply cannot give up my comfort for some extra height when I’m already 5’8 or something like that. However when it comes to wedges, I basically lose my mind even though I already have over four or five pairs. And here I am calling myself a minimalist lol. You can't really tell from the terrible lighting in the picture but the straps are a beautiful peach colour and the details on the straps give me so much life!

Fancy Gadgets
Canon T5i 
Guys, I finally landed the camera that I wanted Alhamdulillah. Actually, I wanted the Canon T3i but then I ended up getting the Canon T5i which is even better than my dream camera eeek!!!I am extremely grateful for this camera you have no idea. I can finally film my assignments in peace without having to stress about where to get a camera from, And Youtube of course. On that note, Please excuse the quality of my pictures lol, I was using my Fujifilm SLR at night because that is the only time I’m free.You can check out my Fujifilm in this post here and a review on my Canon is coming up soon in shaa Allah.

Bought at: HD Holdings at Jamia Mall // Price: Ksh 55,000

Gifted ipod (32GB)
I’ve never been a fan of apple products because I always felt they were way complicated for no apparent  reason, but boy am I having a blast with this ipod. I simply love all the features and apps that come with it which definitely come quite in handy when you don't want to use your phone.It's basically my back up phone if you ask me,without the sim card that is.

Given as a gift

Beauty Goodies
Nivea fruity Shine in Watermelon
This is probably one of my favourite chap sticks if not my top favourite. I’ve never been one to try out flavored Chap sticks but this is one that I would highly recommend. Not only does it smell amazeballs but it actually leaves your lips pretty supple unlike the other ones that only serve you with a nice scent.

Gift from Mom :)

Jader Perfume
Honestly, this picture doesn’t do the look of this perfume any justice.The perfume bottle looks so elegant and pretty on my table that I would basically leave it there even if it was empty. It’s one of those pieces that not only carry an amazing scent but also look amazing as a décor piece on your dresser.

I hope you enjoyed exploring these things that i am currently more fond of than i am of people.I know i haven't done a favourite/fashion/whatever this  kind of post is for a while so i hope you're not weirded out.I wasn't in the mood to spill my guts out today. Reagrdless, i always love hearing from you!Thank you for stopping by! :)
