Day Out: Freedom City Mall

Hello lovelies,

Last sunday me and my sister plus the kids went to freedom city mall on entebbe road to celebrate her first born Hashim’s birthday. He was making two years old.

We went to the kids park and i must say we were impressed. There is lots of kids activities and my nephew had a great time. This is a good place to go with the family and enjoy your self, its spacious and relaxing. The only thing i was not happy about was the food. Expensive. And they couldn’t allow any outside food(ofcouse how would they make money lol).

We entered around 3:30pm and by the time it was 6pm, we had had enough fun time. Well this was an excuse for me and Gabby to get out of the house and relax.

I wore a blue knee high dress with a zip at the front(this made it easier for me to breast feed in public) and accessorised with african sandals & green hand and finished off the look with my beautiful hat. My sis wore printed leggings and blouse plus sandals…this was look was simple and comfortable to spend a day with the kids.

There is a way getting out of the house makes you refreshed,relaxed and recharged. Do you agree? Which places have you visited lately? Lets chat in the comments below.

Have you watched Black Panther?

I need to get hold of this movie as soon as possible or get a cinema ticket…somebody please pass me one lol. People on social media are making me Jealousy painting my instagram with their African looks while at the cinema.

Any who, for those like me who haven’t watched Black Panther this is what it is about; After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king — and as Black Panther — gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.

The “Black Panther” movie premiere was on Monday, January 29th, and Hollywood’s biggest stars served us impeccable purple carpet fashion.

Below are some of the best looks of the night

The dress code was African oriented and i love how these actors managed to bring out the African looks. Daniel Kaluuya made me proud to be a ugandan when he came dressed in a kanzu and that valvet Jacket wow! Does Angella Basset ever age look at her in this yellow Jumpsuit? Lupita Nyongo with her extra ordinary hairstyle and the statement Necklace! Janelle Monae with different colored sleeves and that Crown on her head, oh love that choker…definition of an Afrcian queen.

What do you think of these looks? Did you rock your African outfit at the premier in your respective country? Tag me on Instagram(Angel.Mbeks) i would love to feed my eyes lol.

Guest Post: Love and Appreciate a good woman

, , , , , , , ,

Hello lovelies! Since we are in the love week(Valentine), here is a nice piece i came across on facebook that inspired me greatly. Read it and tell me what you think.

I was married, had been with my wife for 15 years. Then I left her 2 months short of our 10 year wedding anniversary.

We were parents of two beautiful children, who are in their late teens now, but were only seven and nine years old when I walked out.

I travelled for work, stayed in a different hotel at least three nights a week. That’s how I met Eve*.

We got to know each other over time. We became Facebook friends. We sent messages to each other all day and night. She was also married, also had two kids. We had so much in common, we soon fell in love. I felt like she ‘got’ me.

This was all during a very trying time in my marriage. I wasn’t happy, I didn’t look forward to going home. My wife had put on weight, we hardly ever spoke, she always looked so miserable.

Little did I realise that I was the reason she was so down and depressed. I didn’t pay her any attention. I took her for granted. I was too busy wishing my life was more exciting, being romanced online, spending all of my free time thinking how I could get out.

I believed she didn’t love me. I convinced myself she never cared about me or my needs and wants and wishes, that all I was was a paycheck.

She spent her free time taking care of us — our kids, making our suppers, doing out washing, making lunches, doing homework, projects, shuttling kids to sport, taking care of the pets they loved so much, their friends, and had a job of her own on top of it all.

Every time she spoke to me, all I heard was nagging and whining. But she was actually begging for my attention: a weekend away, a date night, a movie — everything I ended up doing with Eve behind her back and after I left my family.

We argued and fought because we felt unheard by the other. And yet that was all we actually had to do – LISTEN – to each other!

I moved to another province with Eve. My now ex-wife got custody of our kids. I saw them every second weekend, the usual ‘Dad’ set up.

New beginnings

Life was sweet!

Eve and I had an amazing sex life. A connection I believed I never had with my ex. We had a large circle of friends. My family loved her. My kids liked her.

But my ex could never bring herself to meet Eve – she felt betrayed. I hated her even more! She was childish. She was mean. She never cared about me or my happiness. I didn’t care about my ex’s feelings when I posted photos of us on Facebook… I had Eve and a whole new life and it was fantastic!

We were together for about six or seven years but never married – we believed marriage was not our thing.

I believed that after 15 years with my ex, we’d given it all we could and our time together was up, there was nothing we could do to salvage our relationship or marriage. Eve was my future, Eve was who I should have been with all along.

Eventually, no matter how well we got along in the beginning; no matter how well I thought she “got” me; no matter how good the sex was; the “honeymoon” came to an end.

Eve and I started snapping at each other. Little fights here and there. I had a moment of pure realisation one night, at about 2am.

I realised that I missed the woman who created my first home and family. I realised that if I’d treated my ex-wife the way I’d treated Eve, used the hours I spend woo-ing Eve on my ex, she’d have bloomed.

If I’d stopped being negative about her and our relationship to my family and friends they wouldn’t have been so negative to her and she wouldn’t have pulled into herself and shied away.

She became someone I convinced myself I no longer knew or got along with because I never gave her the time and affection and attention she craved and deserved.

I thought I had, but when I got down and really thought about it I never really did. I never really let her in. I had ended my marriage years before with the simple decision that she was no longer who or what I wanted. And I’d convinced my family and friends the same – that she was no good for me!

Regret sets in

But I was wrong. I missed the best years of my kids lives. Missed being a family with them. I let their mother battle with raising them alone. Yes I helped financially, but a man living outside his family has no real idea what the costs are on the single mother. While Eve and I ate steaks on the weekends, my ex-wife was living on egg and toast.

And do you know that she never complained? She never demanded more money out of me. She never stopped me from seeing the kids. Never said no if I changed plans on her at the last minute. She gave up her weekends so that my mother could spend time with her grandchildren. She left me to get on with my life with Eve, even though it must have killed her.

Like any relationship, it had started out good – great in fact – but when it go bad I decided to leave… I walked out and divorced a woman who – and I can only see this now – would have done anything for me. But I’d told myself she wouldn’t or couldn’t.

My ex-wife stayed single for 8 years. She dated but never got involved. Her being single was also a kind of affirmation for me – that no one wanted her – that everything I’d decided she lacked, so did other men… She actually stayed single to focus on our children.

Too late

And then came the day she met Craig. I never thought it would bug me in any way if she got a boyfriend. I thought it would be great! But I was very wrong. I felt hurt. I felt jealous. I even felt angry and maybe betrayed.

She moved in with Craig, along with my kids. She set up a new home. A new family, with my kids… it was a very bitter pill to swallow.

I finally understood how she’d felt all these years. And it felt rotten.

I watched via Facebook and through conversations with our old mutual friends how Craig spoiled her and the kids. Their weekends were spent on the beach – he surfed with my son. They went hiking in the Burg. They went to Mauritius where he proposed on a kayak and she said yes — they got married.

My daughter was a bridesmaid. My son was a groomsman. Craig’s parents and brother welcomed my ex-wife and children into their family. They told everyone how blessed they were to be gaining them as family.

She glowed with happiness. She radiated love and none of it was for me! My heart felt like it had been ripped out.

It should have been me.

Don’t be me. You think you will never be happy when you are in a rut. It is when you are there at your darkest that you need to grip down and try your hardest.

Today I live alone and still only see my kids occasionally. They are big now and harbour anger towards me for leaving them and their mother. Who can blame them?

Of all the things Eve was, she was never the mother of my children – my original true love.”

It was held at Munyonyo at Jahazi pier, entrance was 50k Ushs. This is such an amazing event to take your loved ones out sit on the grass or dance yourself away to the cooleat music ever.

This time,the event was all about ragga and ragae and there were so many top artists like Micheal ouma, Janzi band, to mention but a few. I hope to attend the next season because even kids(Will have to take my little Gabby with me) are entertained as well…so basically its a family day out.

So many slay queens and kings slayed on this event while taking instagram selfies and snapchat videos. The place was filled up and i must say it was a success.
