Wasuh Legit Society!!

Have you ever got this deep sense of motivation for a while after reading through some of them pintrest quotes and felt like the world is yours to conquer??  But let’s be honest here ,after a day, a week or two,that pin effect sort of wears off and you never actually go out and do what you had set your heart out for… Well people, that was not me this past weekend. You know that quote that goes, ‘Success just doesn’t come  and find you, you go out and get it’ …I decided to be all about that. Isn’t it time though, I put my excuses on excuses aside and stop sleeping on my wild wild thoughts, I mean my ideas and all… Randomly scrolling through Instagram one  night last week, I coincidentally came across…

“WHY NOT?”

It was that question that got me to Privee Westlands on 30th September afternoon with my girl Chomba. After typical parking struggles we finally got to the venue and isn’t that restaurant lovely. ‘Breath ! Take it in. Take it in. Take it all in’. Beautiful people, stunning clothes, aesthetic layout, drinks by the bar, models and bloggers and designers and hello fashion people! My goodness. I mean, it was simply too much.

 

A friend and fellow blogger Tony Ngige, was also showcasing his styling capabilities in the show and his collection was just divine. (check out his blog http://www.kingslimfit.com). I was on cloud 9 with my camera trying to capture the art walking back and forth in front of me. Every blogger had their own unique style and you could see their personalities radiate in their collections.

just, TAKE ME BACK. It was an amazing experience.

Here are my favorites from the collections…

Didn’t i just blow your mind ?

Keep calm and stay legit society! 🙂

Roses Tiëd With Threads.

you are gone but I could still,

write pages, write chapters

I could write books about you.

all of them filled,

page by page with,

the art we made,

the poetry we created.

 

you are gone but I still pass by the perfume store ,

to race my heart beat,

Just a little.

paint my pale chicks just a little,

rosy red.

Roses tied with threads…

Tied like memories in my head.

STICK AROUND

I feel I’m sorry.
I know with you I could have drawn a map and told a story…
Aren’t you making me want you?
Tell me that you are faking the fade,
I’m not losing you, nothing’s changed.
It’s grown me so much to love you,
And I’ve learnt much more than I told you.
Please tell me that I still got you,
I didn’t come in when you were through.

I’ve been distancing,
From so much.
And you are distancing ?
From me ?
Give me a happy pill…
Or rewind me to the happy feels.
Choices change people.
I text different,
I saw.
Thoughts away !
I just want you to stay
Stick around me even when I go insane.

You ever watch a movie so good it leaves you in this intense mood for about an hour or day where you feel like your whole life is a movie and you are that main character that’s got the happiest ending? You ever get that?? Some weird surge of positive energy…Ama it’s just me…mhh

So I watched this movie eh? Right now I feel like the most inspired human on earth.

This is what I got from it …

Real deep stuff!

“It takes real courage to uncover yourself. To glance back with affection

And appreciation of what has been. Once you were going to set the world on fire, bring the stars closer, remember? Today we all have our fair share of cinders along with the memory of few bright sparks to show for our effort.

We have buried hope under layers of endless excuses, bitter failures, unexpected circumstances, good intentions, wrong choices, naiveté, bad timing, disappointments, rejection, and stupid mistakes __God! You can only be so human. And man is to error right? How far have your errors taken you?

It’s no wonder you need boldness to retrace yourself. But in the process make peace with the knowledge that you can’t sleep and wake up with gold running in your veins.

Ala!? It just doesn’t work like that.

Be kind to yourself. Respect the process. Allow the process. There is a glow in you. That glow in you, tenderly find it. ’”

 

BUBBLE

I asked a friend today what is his view on a relation right now. The kind where we group in love.

The grow in love,

The be in love,

The fall in love.

This is what I understood…

Look at us creating a bubble.

And doesn’t it look amazing while it’s growing.

They start from a surface themselves, we start from each other. And that surface joins together to create a space we find each other in, we create space for each other. We create a relation. That space is that relation.

We blow in it so carefully. So damn carefully.

And so it grows.

944fb763080c6a7ffd0bb04d3449fa7d

Now, the bubble does something to this space.

It sort of delicately secures it.

It secures you. You secure each other. Mentally, emotionally…you find comfort yes? In each other.

This bubble narrows your exposure down to that space.

“That one person.”

 You give some confidence to that.

But

There is this thing about bubbles.

You only find out after you’ve touched this bubble… or after it’s been touched or has touched.

fde01033a2e10ab26840428941cb86d1

No one’s  ever bursted a bubble from inside. You must be outside the space, the relation, to burst it. Everything else that isn’t either of you inside that space is usually not able touch, or prick your bubble.

But also, this can happen…

The pressure within can refuse to be contained inside your bubble.

 

Mhhh…but here we are still

Young

Confident

And becoming.

Thing is,

bubbles are beautiful.

I bet you’ve seen that rainbow thing they form in the sun yah?

 

But

We have to understand them and accept how delicate they are. We have to be poised enough to take the burst when it happens if it does happen. You can’t just look at a bubble and predict the exact millisecond it will burst can you? At least remember, when it does, it doesn’t burst out into a vacuum .

no.

Dear legit society, be ready to inhale that air.

I mean it’s always been there doing what air does, your life as an individual being has and will always be there

You just took a moment focusing on a specific space, a relation and that’s fine, that’s allowed.

To be in a bubble.

It’s allowed.

 

Why did the bubble cross the road tho?

No. Seriously

Its pop was waiting on the other side
