I've been testing out the new #LGG6 smartphone and I've enjoyed playing around with the array of camera features. I can shoot in manual mode, and the grid shot function has been useful for getting the perspective right on shots like this one at the lovely Abbotsford House in Scotland. I'll be sharing more on my Stories soon, so stay tuned. #sponsored #LG @LG_UK

Still smiling during Saturday's hike up Snowdon. At this point I thought we were about half way and was thinking, 'This is easy! I must be really fit because I'm not even sweating. We should do this every weekend!' Little did I know that we were actually about 1/8th of the way and our climb had barely even begun. I don't look this happy or smiley in the following photos!

Njoki here! That is my adopted Kenyan name. It literally translates to "she who returned" and it's both symbolic and ironic of my current, fashionably homeless situation as I come and go so often from different places. I looked a bit deeper into the meaning of Njoki and also found more stuff to pad my ego. *ahem* 💁🏾 "Njokis have strong willpower. They're analytical, intellectual, determined, religious, efficient, trustworthy, compassionate, tenacious, ambitious, and basically slay TF out of life." That last part was a loose translation 🙃 But I've done and seen so much since arriving, that I felt an immediate sensory overload. Navigating the streets of Nairobi is like training for a marathon as a toddler. Blind-folded. With no legs. 😭 It's intense, yet inviting. Chaotic, yet captivating. Terrifying, yet stimulating. They have these vans called Matatus which I recommend EVERYONE ride at least once! Think of a tuk tuk from Thailand mixed with an ice-cream truck from the U.S. (are those still a thing anymore or have pedophiles ruined white vans forever)? The other day I was out with new friends and we were ordering drinks. One lady got a coke. She turns to me and chuckles, "Yes, we have coke. The continent where people think we're all dying. Go and tell your friends." THE SASS THO. I'M HERE FOR IT. 😂😂😂🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to live somewhere that the entire world has the same exhausting narrative of. I'm stoked about the Kenyans I've met and will be meeting up with who are doing everything they can to help change and "unscramble" (CC: @truthslinger) the narrative of Africa. Also! The hairstyles the women are rocking here?! LITTTTTYYYY. I'm getting all kinds of inspiration for new styles and I think it's time to switch things up soon. Njoki signing off for the day. Kenya is addicting in the best kind of way. She's definitely only for the adventurous soul though. Don't come here to relax, because you'll miss out on all the fun. #ThisIsKenya 🇰🇪❤
