Hi friend! My name is Stephanie Atieno. I’m a 28 year old healthcare researcher.
This website has evolved over the years. First it was an online store where I shared African print clothing that I designed. This was a business that was close to my heart however, 5 years later I had to close my virtual doors because of ongoing manufacturing and sourcing issues. I still however want to share my passion for African Fashion and so this blog is an outlet for that.
In addition I would like to consider this a personal blog. Here you’ll find bits of what goes on in my head and probably yours too. An outlook on being a late 20s corporate professional, my personal style, family, faith, travels and adventures, fitness tips, relationship struggles and just everyday womanhood.
I live my life as a constant transformation of self, always seeking to grow more learn more and be better than yesterday.
I am a Kenyan-American. I was born in Texas, grew up in Philadelphia, then Seattle and then finally Jersey City, NJ. I’m a city girl in my heart of hearts. I like heels and sneakers and red lipstick. I am recently sisterlocked and loving it, I love breakfast at all times of the day, meditation, and God.
In 2015, I met a French boy, adventure-partner, companion, and best friend – Pierre. We met while I was on a business trip in Switzerland. He and I had decided to pursue this new relationship while he is living in Switzerland and me living in New Jersey. We gave ourselves a time limit. We only need to do this for no more than one year. After one year, if we are not sure about what we want and if either of us does not feel committed enough to pack up and move to where the other is, we would end our relationship.

It took us 2 years until he finally moved to the US (Only because that’s how long immigration takes). We are now blissfully happy and married. We are currently planning a second wedding with family and friends in July 2018 since we had a very private civil ceremony in the fall of 2017.
There is a little about me, I hope you choose to come back! If so, don’t forget to subscribe!
