Travel Style- Kenya

26 December 2011
Good afternoon chicklets!

I am sure most of you in the west are still full from all of the food you partook of over the weekend and sitting in front of your computer trying to figure out how to move your tucus from the sofa. Shazaam! I say relax, it is rare that we get the opportunity to just veg out..

Today's travel style is brought to us by way of the beautiful country of Kenya. I have a good a friend from Kenya who has invited me many times and I promise you I am going to make it there this coming year.  I mean who does not want to go on a beautiful Safara and see exotic animals in their natural habitats and spend the day in the markets shopping for Kente cloths and wood carvings or sun bathe at the sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean?

Kente Cloths are from the Ashanti people of Ghana

African prints and head scarves are playing a big role in fashion at the moment, even Russian Vogue did a complete photo layout on this style.  I have decided to create an outfit for my 'journey' to Kenya.

There is something sexy about Black Coconut oil that reminds me of the earthy. Its sweet yet musky scent is a great way to feel connected to an earthy country like Kenya. Black Coconut Roll On Perfume Oil, Amazon, $1.75
