On Tuesday I attended the launch of Miss Kenya 2015 at the Hilton,Nairobi. I had a chance to interact with loads of interesting people among them being former finalists, sponsors, fellow fashion bloggers and media. It was a nice little gathering with ambient lighting and delicious treats. Production manager,Tony Chirah briefed us on what to expect. The most important thing I got out of it is that this time the cause will come before the face. The cause which contestants are passionate about and are going to champion. They no longer want just a pretty face but a young leader who is charismatic, empathetic, empowered and consciously informed of the status of affairs.
The ‘Twende Green’ Initiative was launched and is aimed at contributing to improved living conditions for farmer households and mitigate climate change through tree planting activities. The goal is to plant 10 million trees in 10 years. It is a partnership between Miss Kenya through the beauty queens and local partner organizations.

For my outfit of the night I went with these grey pants,lace crop top, grey jacket and light blue pumps. These are my go-to pumps for events. Not too high while keeping me looking fabulous. A perfect combination of form and functionality.
