KICKING IT SHISH KEBAB STYLE

kicking it shish kebab style

Hello there,

Yes people I am totally kicking it shish kebab style and love the outcome. This week I wanted to experiment a bit more and move away from my cliché meals of pasta and rice. To be honest, this was totally accidental because I wanted to make meatballs but since meatballs go with pasta, I didn’t want to even go there and just before I forget, go here to check out my best pasta sauce. So my direction changed and I ended up with these bad boys. If you would like to introduce something new to your menu, here is how you can make them.

Disclaimer: I am not a professional in making shish kebabs, in fact I didn’t use skewers because I forgot that I didn’t get any on my last shopping trip and lastly, I was really aiming for them to look like Croatian çevapis hence the shape. Now let’s go ahead and show you what you need.

MY CURRENT NATURAL HAIR PRODUCTS

MY CURRENT NATURAL HAIR PRODUCTS

Hello everyone, I hope that your long weekend went well and are now ready for another week. We all know that women in general like looking good and our hair is a big part of our image. I have natural hair and I try to take care of it as much as I can from my washing routines, deep conditioning, moisturising and protective styling. All that always relies on having hair products that are staples and work well to achieve healthy hair. These are my current natural hair products.

1.SHAMPOO

I am not going to bore you by saying too much here, I usually shampoo my scalp most of the time but if my hair has too much build up, then I also do the rest of the hair. For my shampoo, I use the Shea Moisture Jamaican black castor oil shampoo which I had put on my current  January favourites here, but I had to use it a couple of times to see whether I love it or not and I must say it is a keeper.

Don’t you just love having clean makeup brushes until you need to clean them all over again then wonder why you torture yourself, it’s all for the love of makeup people. I have tried many ways of cleaning my brushes until I found an easy way. This is how to easily clean your makeup brushes.

MY VISIT TO KENYA HOLIDAY ROUNDUP

my visit to Kenya holiday roundup

Hi guys, spring is starting and am getting excited. On my last month’s update here, I talked about going on holiday and how scary it was for me since I was leaving my son for two weeks and I had never left him ever since I had him and as much as it freaked me out, it was the best decision. I am going to try and make this post as short as possible by probably bombarding you with my holiday photos that I managed to take when I remembered. This is my visit to Kenya holiday roundup.

How did it all come about?

When we were planning to go visit Croatia last year, I thought of how my husband and son would go by themselves and I would visit my parents instead. At first, it sounded crazy and I ignored it for a while until I started thinking about it more and decided I was going to do it and see how it all goes. So a few months later, I started planning my trip.

If you read my 20 random facts about me post, you already know am Kenyan and my whole family is there so my destination was obviously going to be Kenya. I started telling my son when I was going and how long I was going for just for him to be ready, my mother in-law came to visit at the same time so that she would be able to spend more time with her grandson and help take care of him while my husband was at work. I arrived in Nairobi very early and shocked my family in the early hours, it was a very good surprise.

This is my tasty roasted chicken recipe.

Ingredients

  • A whole chicken

WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN YOU ARE STARTING YOUR BLOG

WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN YOU ARE STARTING YOUR BLOG

Hello

Happy mid-week everybody, I hope that you are all having a great one. Today, I have another post for you and it’s about blogging again. We all know the basics on how to start a blog, getting blog post ideas and writing posts. Now, let’s talk about the issue of whether or not you are doing things right or just hoping for the best. Here are some tips on what not to do when you are starting your blog.

1.FREE BLOGGING SITE

I know that not everybody has the extra money to pay for a domain but if you are really serious about wanting to blog and making it long-term, I would suggest that you think about spending a bit to get your own domain. Also with free blogging sites, you always have to use their designs and cannot be able to have wordpress and other popular products. Plus if you want to start to monetize your blog and become serious about working with clients and companies, I would suggest to get your own domain to make it look at least professional and not chase away anybody who would like to work with you just because they thought you’re not capable of having your own website.

2.CHOOSING A BAD HOST

This is also another important subject you should think about once you have started your blog, there’s nothing more frustrating than creating your site and making everything look just as you want and then your host starts giving you problems by the site being down or them not responding if you have problems. So make sure to do your research when it comes to the host you choose for your site, know what services they offer and if it suits you best, I use bluehost and so far, I haven’t had any issues. There are many hosts to choose from but just remember to first do your research before jumping in only to regret later.

HOW TO MONETIZE YOUR BLOG

how to monetize your blog

Almost everyone who starts a blog reaches a point where they start thinking of how they can make some money while doing what they love, after all blogging is work and it takes time and effort. As much as some people may think that it’s nothing other than just writing whatever, I tend to disagree because by the time you think of what to write, then write it and then edit and find images, that is work. So when you hit publish, you know that you are proud of what you have done but will still have to go and do it all over again. That’s why if you think about it, shouldn’t you at least try to make some money from doing it? Plus a little extra money never hurt anyone. I have some few ways on how to monetize your blog.

  • AFFILIATE MARKETING

If you already have some products that you use all the time and have even reviewed once or twice, why not make some extra money from them. All you have to do is find companies that relate to your niche and see if they have an affiliate program or if there is an online store that you always shop at, also check it and sign up. Once you do that, your job is to do honest reviews and try to tell your readers why you bought it, or how will it help them and if someone thinks they could do with that product, then buying it earns you a commission. At the end of it, it doesn’t cost the reader anything when you tell them about what you like only if they decide to try it out. There are many companies with affiliate programs nowadays, don’t miss out.
