I have concentrated much on other issues that I have forgotten to also look at our beautiful women in elegant dresses trying to make a leaving out of giving fashion tips to other ladies. All who blog often at a point in time do it for the passion they have from within. You won’t say my mum or dad forced me into this? Not forgeting Happy Women’s Day to You All Ladies. Back to business, Blogging in Kenya has taken a whole new perspective. It is now more educative, informative and inspiring forget about the gossip blogs. Am talking of real blogs here.
Several Bloggers came up and decided that we need to set up an organization that is Bloggers Association. This BAKE was born as an idea by a fewer number of bloggers with common interest. BAKE has grown large and bigger and now even offers trainings on various issues regarding blogging.

“I’m lucky enough to be able to do what I love which, in essence, is to share my personal style and other bits of my life in the hope that it will inspire women of all ages. What I’ve come to realise is that fashion isn’t just about being trendy and cute, it’s about expressing your character, building your confidence and ultimately celebrating yourself. My hope for my blog is to inspire women around Africa to be the best damn artists they could possibly be.”
As the name suggests the blog name comes from her name Ms. Kibati giving it a feel of herself. Ms. Caroline is fashion entrepreneur and fashion blogger/writer.
