Wine tasting 101 at Sovereign Kisumu Hotel

Enjoy…

My Turquoise Glass

Did you know that wine tasting is best done between 8am and 10 am? No coffee before that? That you should use the same wine glass all through the different wines you taste? That before you taste you should check the color of wine against the light, smell it, swirl it in the glass then taste it? That different food go well with specific wine? And that same wine has different taste every year?

I have always wanted to go for wine tasting. Now, Kisumu does not have much of that but last week Friday, John Legebeke hosted a wine tasting event at Sovereign Hotel. The moment I stepped into Legend Bar, I knew that what I spent on my ticket would be worth. The set up was amazing, classy, and comfortable. Music from the young talented live band was top notch.

I would say this was wine tasting 101…

A woman’s worth 

A queen in my own right. What’s your worth?

TayTells


This is for the all the ladies out here.

I’ve recently been exposed to a situation that tested me.

In it’s all I was appaulled at how women can turn on women because of insecurities.

Don’t get me wrong, we not perfect, I mean I judge and then feel bad about it, I act on emotion and not logic heck I sometimes even say eff life and just enjoy. I make wrong choices, I rise and I fall time and time again.

But when it comes down to handling an issue, I can proudly say that I no longer look to blame others especially not my fellow women, and I look to see how I could have handled a situation better and deal with the actual problem and not with the easiest target.

It’s so sad to see that we expect our male colleagues, husbands , boyfriends or even brothers…

Chaos, Control: Four Poems for Uncertain Times

Chaos… i always loved poetry

Discover

It’s been a difficult, tense few days for many in the US and around the world. But even — if not especially — when words fail us in our everyday lives, there’s still poetry. Here are four powerful voices on the uncertainty of freedom, the complicated process of healing, and more.


Ra, “Chaos?

These are the first tacos
after 438 days in jail.
She’s smiling,
focusing on food,
and freedom.
She’s ignoring the noise,
the flickering lights,
the customers in mismatched clothes,
the music,
the people on phones,
the cleaning supplies,
the smells,
the traffic outside,
the door without locks.

She’s smiling,
but every time she sees this picture,
she tries to see
the freedom.
but can only see
the chaos.

WOMANHOOD

A woman’s Burden?

  Last week Monday was World Contraception day. I got the opportunity to celebrate it by attending Kisumu county celebrations held at Nyalenda Health Center. After a couple of skits and poems, it got me thinking deep on what society  really perceives about contraceptives. Who is contraceptives meant for? Man/woman. How accessible are contraceptives to… Continue reading A woman’s Burden?
