Coachella 2017 goes HAM

So every time i hear coachella's coming up, my heart just can't get its stuff together. This one is particularly a front-runner for me.It was one of the first entertainment articles ages ago that brought out the love for blogging, sorta sentimentally attached.Sorry to go all emo on ya but coachella was that idea that sparked a light bulb moment that forever shines. Plus it's the finest festival ever, forget tomorrowland, wave ultra-miami goodbye and say what's up to Coachella. Not sure any festival in East Africa can match up but Blankets And Wine is most definitely catching on,very promising.
Coachella is a bucket-list sorta fest ,the kind that will have you breaking banks  and all. Cause it's hella worthy! Coachella comes with a star-studded line up, an a-list crowd, the best aesthetics you're ever gonna find and all the best activities that will have you gasping.I know i got you wishing you had been, but that's precisely what this post is about,make you feel like you were right there the entire time.  Every intricate detail of the festival will leave you fazed and firmished for days! Not to mention the performances by our fave artists that are brimming with so much life!
No BS, the line up was insane! Consisting of the staple, these guys are always on the line up,that's just how dope they are.Pharrell ,lorde, lady Gaga,Kendrick lamar,Solange Knowles and lana del rey.  This year's line-up brought more dazzle especially because it featured more hiphop music than ever before!Yea,for all the hiphop heads, this was your year! The likes of lil wayne, lil uzi vert, kendrick lamar, future, dj esco... Uh oh, did someone say, too much sauce? I heard that!
Let's talk style,get you up to track! Everybody knows Coachella is awesome because of its super high profile crowd! I mean how bizarre is it that guys get to hang with Leonardo DiCaprio, rihanna, kendall ,katy perry! Flippin ' incredible right!
This years coachella was a wee bit too unconventional.The last couple of years saw the basic boho chic style take over, fancy lace maxi dresses,geometric prints and ankle leather boots run the festival. This year marks the start of a new summer/spring boho style that is nothing close to basic, you feel me? Way more diverse and fun! 
So i zeroed in on a few looks that have me so ruffled



Vanessa Hudgens pulls off her trademark bohemian look at Coachella.

             Joe Jonas looking all chill.
Kylie and kendall are coachella essential so sure enough they showed up and Killed it! 

Kendall jenner and her awesome self stood out in a sequin brallete and high waisted flared pants to finish it up the cool look. I'm sure you've run into the saying "fashion repeats itself",well, it's about that time cause flared pants are back,like they never left.Bralletes are taking the world by storm too, they are to die for!Kendall is the reigning queen of cool,you can smell her spruce miles away.Always seen in comfy yet outrageous kinda outfits,the model is known for hacking the athleisure vogue so good she is now the new Brand ambassador of Adidas, if you're a fan then kendall is your go-to girl. 

Katy perry showed up with her banging new hair cut and a dj skill set, if you know what i mean!haha!She looks so fine in her short hair cut which she's been showing off since her new video featuring HipHop's finest migos,Bon Appetit!For a second there she had me thinking I should go short and sassy,but nah,let me sleep on that first.Wouldn't want to look like i came straight from a horror movie!
Katy Perry's outfits were brimming with so much funk, uptown kinda funk! She was seen in a furry coat,colored sunnies and some cool high-waisted pants.She looks so edgy and sophisticated ,she'll leave you baffled.

Pharrell turned up looking like a ball of color and swag for his performance! He just never lets us down, so you bet he's not about to start. Darn it, i don't even get how he keeps it so fresh, he is some typa special. 


Rihanna gets a little more Street by the day.Always pulling the weirdest and fun style stunts! She gets to do that, she's rihanna right? In a bad ass gucci outfit,she got heads turning and blew up the internet like she always does. I'm talking a full-body glitter body suit,by full-body I mean head to toe .sick ay??? She paired that up with colored sunnies which are so in right now,a dope tee and some cute denim shorts.Riri,no one does it like you do,thats for sure.For that exclusive shot,check out riri's gram.

The off the shoulder trend is so on season ,it was rocked so bad it was so good.Didnt know? Now you do so get with it. Emily ratajkowski and kendall jenner are among the ladies that trotted out this look at coachella and boy did we looove that!

Taking a look at the performances, this part will have you feeling so turnt. Drake and Future took to the stage! Jump-man!
Solange knowles,an all time fave for me, performed her whimsical jams and pulled a wild card by having her sis, queen bey, show up and perform.That's right, double trouble.Does it count as a wild card when she does it every year?Haha,i'll let you decide.

The HipHop king 'Kendrick Lamar also performed! With his new album out not too long ago, you can only imagine how great that was,plus no one does it like kendrick.The way he brings music to life on stage is just too special. I can only hope y'all have his album "damn", ain't nothing better at the moment.   


Travis Scott also made it to the stage,a whole lotta awesome for us to take in. He obviously wouldn't miss out on coachella, not when he's dating kylie,gotta have a good time together.  
There you have it, got you feeling like you didn't miss a thing right? That's just how we do. Xoxo

Unrelated, take a peek at this documentary of Rihanna's visit to malawi courtesy of her charity foundation that will make you love her even more!!

Cosmic Homies

Remember Camp Mulla? Yea, that music group that had transcendent music and had Kenyans all jittered because of their great style. Not forgetting that gut-wrenching feeling we got when we realized they had split! Such a bummer,right? I’m not mentioning names but some of my friends never got over it! After disbanding, they all went into solo music careers,giving us all something to hang on to! Runkah (Karun) and Taio seemed to stay in touch and are now part of Cosmic Homies. Not just a band but so much more.Talk about art,fashion,music production,a multi-talented bunch they are!
Back, bigger, bolder and better! With the new band up and running, let’s just say, all those heart-crushed fans finally got closure!

Made up of:

A vocalist, instrumentalist, producer from Nairobi, Kenya.



A rapper, singer, songwriter, DJ, producer, radio host, MC from Nairobi, Kenya.


A singer, songwriter, dancer, stylist, designer, film maker from LA, California.



A rapper, poet, singer, songwriter, model, actor from Tanzania whose pictures are so darn hard to find.No lie,he's a ghost on social media.But i love a challenge!
More juice? He has been dating  Runkah for a while now, seriously the coolest couple around!

All those titles? Gasp!! Cosmic Homies are here to redefine and revolutionize pop culture.In an interview with okayafrica, Taio admits that at first (in Camp Mulla) they were following a formula but not anymore. Runkah backs that up “people are challenging what’s the norm and what it means to be ‘successful’ and giving themselves the freedom of exploring different styles”. Their music is truly different and unconventional, nothing like you’ve ever heard. In a time when the music industry in Africa has plunged into a very flimsy and commercial sound, getting music that is not just authentic but speaks to the soul is so rare. They define their music as electro-organic. You’re probably like “what?” .listen to their music and you’ll completely understand why that name is best suited. Their music is a mix of so many sounds, jazz, hip-hop, electric, and soul.

They launched their debut mixtape “O.N.E” (Only Now Everlasting) last year. The mixtape features six tracks i.e. time flies bye, worlds apart, kilifornia, vibe tribe, too lit, and heart restart. The mixtape was released through their own record label Cosmic Homies records. My top favorite jams on their mixtape have to be vibe tribe (This one is for the hip-hop heads) and kilifornia,Jam along to “kile to kilifi, kilifi to California oh!”

The group has been on tour(From Kenya to the World) in the USA powered by what’s good live #WGLIVE

Undeniably, they are cool, so cool (did I say they’re cool?).They are clearly no where close to average, they have a fearless sense of style with absolutely no chills whatsoever. Their ‘gram is filled with artsy selfies and inspiration, with in between peeks of their tours.

So this post is entirely fixated on Rihanna. Boy, do I feel this post is long overdue! Rihanna is not just the music genius we know her for but  also the ultimate fashion killer. Earlier this year, she graced her fans with her album ANTI,which is insanely good. Rihanna was going for a timeless album, one her fans would listen to and enjoy even after ages. In my perspective, she definitely accomplished that, It's still stuck on my playlist! The album went platinum and is still doing great on  the charts.

Last week, she released the video to her song "This is what you came for" alongside Calvin Harris. Looking back at how successful "We Found Love" was, there's no doubt this new single is just as awesome or even a tad bit more awesome. About two days ago, she  also released a new single "Sledgehammer" which is featured in the new Star Trek Beyond trailer.
In terms of style, Rihanna is most definitely not a stickler for the rules. When everyone is stuck on the Do's and the Don'ts,Riri is too busy embracing all the different trends in the fashion scene. She is known for her adventurous and undaunted fashion sense. It's pretty much impractical to guess what Rihanna will be seen wearing, she is way too fickle.
Rihanna took the fashion industry a notch higher when she revealed her heart-stirring collection in collaboration with PUMA, The FENTY X PUMA Collection. She and Puma debuted a complete FENTY collection at Fashion Week 2016.The collection is startlingly impressive, very cool and ravishing. So much that an attempt to purchase them online is frustrating because they are constantly sold out but they are worth it bruh!
And just when you thought the African print wasn't all that, Rihanna proves that it's an absolute masterpiece.
For sure, Rihanna is probably the most dazzling person ever;immensely talented,hella confident with a crazy, diverse sense of style which is a perfect match for her crazy personality.She's undeniably one of those celebrities you constantly should have your eye on.So yea, Rihanna Navy All Day, Err Day, You Bet!!

We cannot ignore the fact that Kenya has been on the rise when it comes to fashion and art. We have seen Kenyan bloggers such as This Is Ess, Silvia Njoki being featured on some of the greatest platforms both nationally and on international fronts. On that lane, let me introduce you to amazing people who have undoubtedly contributed massively to Kenya being on the map in the art and fashion scope:2manysiblings,run by a duo that is revolutionizing the art and fashion scope, not just in Kenya but worldwide.

2manysiblings is a brand run by brother and sister Papa Petit and Velma Ross .I know you’re probably thinking, “ c’mon ,it’s impossible for that relationship to work in a professional setting!” turns out we are completely wrong about that. The two are Kenyan art and fashion muses who felt the need to showcase their personal style with the world and therefore starting their own blog on tumblr.


Speaking of style, the duo has a very distinct style that sets them apart from all the other fashionistas. Their style is a mix of vintage, African print and urban with a vibrant and sophisticated feel to it. Let’s be honest, we’ve all been witnesses to the catastrophic fashion attempts made by people to go vintage and I say catastrophic because they were an absolute flop! Pulling off the vintage look is not as easy as it looks. So big up to 2manysiblings for going vintage and blowing our minds while they’re at it.

What makes 2manysiblings so special? Well, when everyone is too caught up trying to fit in, Papa Petit and Velma Ross are standing out! Most people are scared to go bold, the thought of what people will think or say weighs too heavily on them and therefore dull their shine. My advice, never dull your shine on anyone’s account. Playing by other people’s rules will never land you on the headlines.2manysiblings has been on amazing platforms ,the duo has been featured on ELLE MAGAZINE SOUTHAFRICA,VOGUE ITALIA,DRUM MAGAZINE,OKAYAFRICA .AFRICAN PRINTS IN FASHION among others. They have also had the grand opportunity to visit some of high-profile art and fashion conventions like Yale Africa Salon, Fashion Cities Africa, African Futures just to name a few.


The duo are also home to one of the most popular events “THRIFT SOCIAL” ,a music and fashion event that brings together all the fashion lovers. The most recent of the thrift social i.e. “THRIFT SOCIAL 5” went down on the 25th of March this year. It is definitely one of those gigs you wouldn’t wanna miss out on so be on the lookout for the next one, do make a point to attend and you better bring your cool.2manysiblings have come so far and now have their own cloth line titled just that consists of a variety of merchandise. The duo is raising the bar quite high and there's just no telling how far they will go. Keep an eye on 2manysiblings and for more deets,do check out their blog,
