B eatrice Mwihaki may not be a household name but I can bet that you have come across her brand, “Nursing Mama.” Although, you may have seen her on your screens as she kick-started KCB’s Lion’s den season four.
Mwihaki used her killer negotiation skills to walk away with two lions as her investors.
She is the brains behind reinventing fashion for pregnant and nursing mothers.
I remember for the longest time I was the “movie recommendation girl.” From my siblings, cousins to my friends, I was the one you called when you needed to watch something. I guess I had a lot of time in university and spent it catching up on shows.
Adulting happened and now it takes me weeks to finish a series. I have what I call adult guilt; the feeling of I could use this time to do better things because I’m now an adult.
I f you were to eavesdrop on my conversation with my best friend, you would definitely hear a lot of girl talk. You will also hear us sharing hacks on how to survive this “adulting” thing.
It’s no wonder when I felt my closet was uninspiring, I knew the one person to run to. I needed hacks on how to revamp my closet and it helps that my best friend is a fashion blogger. (Hey beingrosemary)
They say you dress up for the job you want not the one you have. A nice outfit helps lift up your mood on a slow gloomy day. It makes you feel unfazed! Looking good is not only for your physical appearance but also good for your soul-If I do say so myself.
I hate being alone with my thoughts. They tend to wander to places I never want to revisit. As someone who often fights with anxiety, I don’t like leaving my mind unattended. It will bring up thoughts on my inadequacy, leaving me to doubt everything I believe I am.
I have tried meditation; quieting my thoughts. It works sometimes and I have to admit it’s therapeutic.
M y early 20s introduced me to seasonal friendships-the ones you have something in common for a season and die with the season. They were friends I either made in my work place or lived in the same area. Sadly, most of them are non-existent now.
As I matured, I learnt that I didn’t have to always cling onto every friendship. I learnt that some friendships are for a season and for a purpose and it’s okay if they don’t last.
I don’t have a squad and sometimes I used to wonder if that’s okay. If life and “the bold type” have taught me anything, it’s that quality over quantity when it comes to friendships.
