Happy Friday and Happy Birthday to me. Well, my birthday is actually tomorrow 20th December. Since I don't post on Saturdays and I had to inform you of this day, the post comes today.

Before I turned 30 I was not so keen on celebrating my birthday. That changed and I am all for the celebrations, good lunch outing with family or just a good home cooked meal always is enough.

This being my day I felt that maybe I should let you know more me a bit.

Merci Jowi, Kenyan, lover of thrift fashion, a Bachelor of Information Technology graduate and also holds a Certificate in Electronic Publishing. In my working career I have been a Software and Hardware Technician, Teacher of Computer Studies and ICT and Creative Graphic Designer. Then came 5th December 2013 I quit being an employee....and

I am currently self employed. I own a stationeries shop, in addition I do freelance graphic design and farming specializing in collards, spinach and black eyed peas.

I am the first born in my family and I have two sisters and two brothers and my parents.


  • I am born again, a follower and lover of Jesus Christ.
  • I have had bad acne since I was a teenager. Very sensitive skin. That has never put me down. I am one person with high self esteem, nothing puts me down, those spots make me.
  • I don't watch TV, it's a choice I made about 3 years ago. I prefer reading. The only exception to this is watching National Geographic and football - watching Arsenal FC play to be specific.
  • I can't swim, even to save my own life.
  • I am a self declared chapati specialist, no sweat making them.
  • I love order, neat desk, well arranged closet. Everything just placed in its rightful place.
  • My favourite author of all time is Paulo Coelho. And reading this blog bikozulu.

To own 3 stationeries outlets.
To own a grocery supermarket.
To visit each county headquarter I haven't been to in my country Kenya. I have 34 to visit.

I look forward to a healthy, fulfilled and happy future. Meanwhile, I am enjoying my 30s and that picture was taken around 1983, it's been that looong ;).

Thanks for always reading, I appreciate and look forward to seeing you around.

Linking with Passion for Fashion , Favourite Fashion Friday. See you on Monday and enjoy your weekend.
