KB: Where are some of the places in Kenya you have travelled to? 
P: When I get the chance, I love exploring all the wonders that Kenya has to offer. I have been to Mombasa, Diani, Malindi, Nakuru, Naivasha, Maasai Mara, Mt Kenya, and I plan to do a lot more places hopefully this year.

KB: What’s the most beautiful place you’ve been to so far?
P: I have fallen in love with Kenya’s beaches, especially Diani. I feel like they are some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in the world, and they need to be visited by more people. I also absolutely love the beauty of the Maasai Mara. You can travel around the world and most places show you old buildings, but here we have natural, picturesque destinations.

KB: What’s the most unique place you’ve visited?
P: The Great Rift Valley. It is so diverse in its landscapes and offers amazing views for a beautiful getaway with friends and family.

KB: What’s perfect for a weekend getaway? 
P: There are a many good options, we’re spoilt. Drive down to Naivasha and camp or staying at a luxury resort as you fill your day with activities including a tour of Hells Gate. Catch the SGR to Mombasa from Nairobi and chill at a resort from Friday night to Sunday and coming back to Nairobi refreshed for work. I would advice anything that is practical in terms of time; so normally a quick drive, train ride or flight of 45 minutes to 4 hours is doable.

KB:How long have you been blogging and do you do anything else besides it?
P: I have been blogging for 4 years. I was raised by a single mum and when she passed away in early 2014, I took over her store La Elegant at Yaya Centre. At the time, I was working as a Policy Analyst in Australia so even though I grew up watching her creative process I had no clue where to begin. What I did know was that I was going to run the store for her and not let all the hard work she put in, end with me. I then decided to quit my job, move back to Kenya where I began rebranded and started expanding and running the store. Blogging started at the same time, I used it to channel my creativity and put looks together. What started as just fashion blogging then transformed to both travel and fashion as I needed to constantly get inspiration, and it was through travel that I got to explore other parts of Kenya and overseas and get informed not only culturally but getting involved in the fashion worlds of different countries.

KB: How would you describe your blog? 
P: My blog is a fusion of travel and fashion, but with that comes food tips/reviews that I have picked up and some beauty pieces. I also have guest writers that are inspirational young talented Kenyans discussing anything from politics to relationships. I can say I would love to one day transform the blog into a Cosmo magazine type of vibe.

KB: What is your nationality? 
P: I am 25 years old and I am Kenyan. My heritage consists of half Kenyan, a quarter Israeli and a quarter Italian.
