Bahati-Bold, Rich and Vibrant African Inspired Collection

About Bahati

Bahati is an up and coming fashion and accessories collection straight out of Nairobi, Kenya that is is both inspiring and beautifully made.

Patricia Wakaimba is the founder of Bahati and contacted me about her collection and I'm so glad she did. Her designs are truly unique and perfect for us girls who love modern bright bold prints and fun styles and shapes inspired by Africa. Perfect for the Spring and Summertime now, and years to come. Her collection is made on site in a small workshop in Nairobi and is a fair trade and ethical brand. And to top it all off Patricia and Bahati are working to raise awareness against the harmful effects of Female Genital Mutilation.

Female Genital Mutilation

FGM is a harmful, crippling practice that alters the lives of millions of young girls forever. It is irreversible; its consequences haunt the girls long after the procedure. This subject is very dear to me and I strongly believe that information, education and public discussion are more effective tools against FGM than direct, prohibitive action. Culture cannot be changed over night.

Programmes such as ‘circumcision through words’ are being introduced in Kenya as a way of incorporating the cultural/ traditional aspect that is associated with the circumcision only without the procedure. Such efforts are highly commendable and are in need of our support.

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day!

A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…

Hi y'all it's been a few weeks since the opening of the new shopping center in Brea "Village at La Floresta" and I've finally had some time to share my experience and photos that I took that day!

As some of you may know, this new shopping center has been in the works for a few years now and is part of a whole new community of new custom homes and even a retirement home as well as a swimming club all under the umbrella of La Floresta, a master planned community.

One of the big draws for this new community is the fact that they had a whole foods as part of their shopping centers new tenants, and us crazy people in North oc have been having to go out to Tustin to get our fix of pre-peeled oranges and lemon infused water, I do people really buy that crap anyway? Wenever I go it's usually to buy something fun from the beauty section or the salad bar!!! Yum!!!

When I went out to see the new location a few weeks ago I went in on the opening day! Crazy I t…
