There’s so much I’d like to tell you about the night these pictures were taken. Like how beautiful the evening was and how the city looks gorgeous from the top of this building. And how I was there with the cutest couple (hi Ciku and Gibel!) who were taking pictures to mark their second year anniversary which almost made me want to jump off the building in envy. Oh and let me not even get started about the few pictures we took on the streets which had to be done in the shortest amount of time without attracting attention but which inevitably led to a small audience {talk. about. embarrassing.} I really wish I could tell you all about that night and the two cops at the corner and all the nervous laughter and cars pulling over and people being stingy with their Kitkats and the technical issues that came up … but I can’t. Partly because I have to dash but mostly because sometimes it’s best to leave such random, adventurous nights in the city as just that – random, adventurous nights in the city..

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a fabulous weekend xx

  • Cece

    Check you out with you toned arms… :) I love the long neck piece #jealous much :)

    • http://twitter.com/ThisisEss Miss Sharon

      Thanks Cece! I think the arms are because I used to try and compete with my brother to see who was stronger so was constantly doing press ups, chins ups etc..

  • Miss Archie

  • Alex Xela

    hey i love the outfit with the yellow skirt tots amaze!! Then with regards your hair journey i wonder how can i deal with the frizz that occasions my exercise regime? Any ideas?

    • http://twitter.com/ThisisEss Miss Sharon

      Hi Alex!

      I’m not really sure what the right answer is here.. I wouldn’t advice you to constantly be in braids either cos I don’t think that would be good for your hair (especially in the long run). Maybe try Google/YouTube some solutions?

      Good luck!

      • foodieinthedesert

        Silicon hair polisher and a sweat band works for me. i put quite a bit before a work out and tie my hair up. it doesnt frizz as much. i also wash my hair weekly.

    OMG that asymmetrical peplum. God in heaven, I really am hyperventilating. YES YES YES!

    You are a master at working the camera. O_o

    • http://twitter.com/ThisisEss Miss Sharon

      :)

  • http://a-la-angel.blogspot.com/ a la Angel

    OK I’ve looked at the photos again (creeper?where?) and, as a matter of urgency, we really need to marry you off and get you off the market, because at this rate WHERE WILL THE REST OF US FIND HUSBANDS? Smh. You are illogically pretty.

    • http://twitter.com/ThisisEss Miss Sharon

      ANGEL.
      First of all, seeing as I’ve been on the market for about a year and a half, I am more than ready to have a little meeting/gathering/tea party and discuss this further. In?
      Second, I’ve visited two shoe stores since we had that SATC convo and both times I’ve left empty handed. Why am I so scared to commit? WHY?

  • evelyne kibe

    • http://twitter.com/ThisisEss Miss Sharon

      Yeah and I almost broke my leg in 3 different places and this is within the 5 minute duration I had them on. There’s a reason I steer away from such heels – not yet used to walking in them!

      Let’s :)

      • Cheptoo Cece

        Geez sorry to hear that. Looking on the bright side. /
        I will look into Paul Munene the photographer.

    • http://twitter.com/ThisisEss Miss Sharon

      Oh and it’s Paul Munene!

  • Nancy Minjire

    I wish i could have heard about the night these pictures were taken….all the kitkat stinginess and the like!! you are a doll!!!

    • http://twitter.com/ThisisEss Miss Sharon

      Nancy, lay into my bosom please.
      You’re so sweet!
      It would have been the longest blog post ever so I figured it’s best if I don’t get into it!

  • Wamboi Kay

    I love your long necklace, I saw a similar one at Juvel Kollection(facebook) , but didn’t think it would look half as nice on me.
