I bless the rains down in Africa

 As some of you lot may know by now, I'm Tanzania (almost) born and raised and I consider it to be my native country. My parents had to bring me here literally kicking and screaming. I've been here for almost five years now and lately homesickness has been driving me crazy.
Well, last night I was feeling very emotional and made the HUGE mistake of listening to Toto's Africa on repeat. Cue the water works :P And I've been feeling a little down and melancholic today (nothing mum's lasagna wont cure though ;).
Well I'm feeling better now, but it doesn't help me from missing the gorgeous country that played such a huge part in how I turned out. Long live Africa <3

Gold-threaded blouse from Turkey, Levi's jeans, Bag from Turkey, belt is mum's old and scarf is thrifted

Thrifted ring, nailpolish by MAVALA

Bag from the bazaar (Turkey as previously stated), notice the cool umbrella holder from TZ

Gourd drinking bottle bought on our trip to sonjo land a few years ago

So I know that this is really a love song, but somehow I just link it to home.

Thank god tomorrow's Friday. I can tell you that I'm looking forward to another super weekend.

All the best to you my lovelies!

The colour of your nails are gorgeous! I think it's great that people admire their own native country! I'm chinese but i live in the UK, but there's loads of traditions i do over here that keep my asian side grounded (:
