In Zambia, being invited to a KP is the perfect excuse to look good- its like a fashion show with models of all ages and sizes.
My day was filled with so much colour and culture- starting with the decor, my outfit, the uniform chitenge worn in different patterns by the bride’s committee, to the colourful outfits worn by the guests.
Here are some looks from the KP:
My look, designed by Esnoko
Bride and Groom matching outfits by Esnoko

I loved Nosizwe's bright pink heels
Jane's (LeSizzleCafe) unique top paired with a black skirt
It’s gotten so hot over the last couple of days and yesterday i really did not feel like getting out of the house. All i wanted to do was sit on the couch, watch movies and eat my second favorite summer treat – freezits! (Popular iced treat in Zambia). My all time favorite treat is cool watermelon.
So anyway, i have choir practice on Saturday afternoons so staying indoors was not an option. So what do you wear when you dont want to wear anything?
I decided to keep it simple with a plain white tee, stretchy tartan skirt and borrowed green sandals.
God blessed me with a change in weather – i ended up enjoying a cool breeze and some drops of rain and it totally changed my mood. Definitely worth an afternoon of praising Him.
Don’t you just love it when God surprises you?
Skirt: Identity (SA)
Sandals: borrowed from a friend who got them from her sister (i know right)

My family really got into the idea of me blogging and when I told them I am doing a travel blog about my trip to Germany, I earned myself sone free consultants. Mum, and dad took it upon themselves to advise me on what to blog about and even arranged trips on some interesting goings-on around the city (The previous post on the BMZ Economic Fayre was dads invitation and idea).
This post on Berlin being the dog city was mums idea after seeing a feature on BBC about a blogger who posted about the cat city (can’t remember which city it was)
Wherever you go in Berlin, you can be guaranteed to bump into a good looking (or handsome as I like to call them; meaning well- groomed) dog and it’s owner. Seriously though, people here love dogs!
So I took up mums challenge and set out with my camera (my phone- gotta love technology) and went a-snapping.
There you have it folks, Berlin truly is the dog lovers city.
I have only been in Berlin a couple of days and haven’t seen much yet.
My touring so far has just been around the neighbourhood, running errands for my mum who isn’t mobile at the moment as she waits to have surgery (I believe God heals all our diseases and my mum will be walking and dancing me down the aisle one day soon…I digress…)
So anyway I thought I’d share in pictures what I have seen so far on my walks to the local grocery store and shops.
The mandatory selfie
Houses and apartments
Statues and green grass! Oh how I love green grass
