The blog Black Roses, chosen among 25 Great Kenyan Blogs You Should Follow in 2014, is the spirit which thrives in plentiful inspiration. Her custodian loves toast, coffee, music, tiramisu, life and colour. Lost dreams of becoming a lawyer transformed to several others (which still got lost) including being an architect and a musician.

Additionally to living life, I am a journalist and publicist. And of course, am the founder and editor in chief of this blog – isn’t it just amazing?

Black Roses has given me the deserved space and freedom to share my feelings with the world; from rants, raves to love. I write a lot and on a lot. Everything you read on this blog is not necessarily the story of my life but who am I kidding? If and when I write about others, it’s because I see myself in them.
