For families spending quality time together has become very difficult in the present day and age.

Lamu! A beautiful and peaceful tropical island. Perhaps one of the oldest town in Kenya dating back to 1370s. Initially, a Swahili settlement but the Portuguese, Omanis, Turkish all left a bit of their footprints.
Oyster Bay is probably one place that needs no introduction. The great view by the sea that Oyster Bay offers its every visitor makes it a great hangout place to spend time at and devour some delicious snacks at the same time, making it a perfect spot to spend weekends at. No wonder, you will always find the place crowded with people from all age, caste and race, sitting together and enjoying cool coastal winds, while savouring a plate of freshly fried mohogo with a spicy kachumbari, grilled mishkaki with a tangy chilli sauce or a packet of crispy mohogo chips to munch down the way back home.

What is the first thing many of us do when we wake up in the morning? We may not proudly admit it, but we check our mobile phones first to check the time, and then we scroll through our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram newsfeeds to see what our friends are up to and get the breaking news of the day. We do all this, while we are still in bed.
As a 31-year old woman and mother, I realize just how lucky we are to be part of information or digital age or new media age, where we have access to information at our finger tips 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Since I was feeling kinda crafty and DIYish (I hope that’s a word), I decided to try making my own lip scrub at home and it turned out amazing!! My daughter especially loved it since it tasted all sugary and smelled of vanilla! 😍 It gave my lips a really soft and moisturized feel the entire day, plus a slight red stain. Win win!

Nachos! A perfect snack to have while watching television. Or to serve as a starter at your dinner party. It is very easy to make, especially if you have ready made nachos at your disposal.
I used fried samosa strips as nacho chips. You can use Doritos or any other nacho chips.
Dar es Salaam can be a fun place to explore especially when you know what to do, where to go and what places to explore. Although, mostly seen as a transit destination to travel over to Zanzibar or one of the many national parks in Tanzania, the city of Dar es Salaam is barely explored by tourists coming over from around the world.
