What is happening to the weather in Nairobi? Imagine Winter without the ice, its freezing cold, especially yesterday. Every- part of my body was “at least warm unlike my ice cold fingers.

I am literary NOT a fan of this weather. Give me summer all day everyday, and I will love love you for ever!!

I know!! I know!! July is here and the weather aint going no where, so how about some leg warmers, knitted sweater, infinity scarfs, gloves, duvets and a hot cup of chocolate with mash-mellows??

I cannot categorize my self as a sweet tooth person, but once in a while I do enjoy sweet stuff. This drink is super sweet, but then again keeps you warm and jolly.

NB:

Like I mentioned before, I am not so much into super sweet drinks or sweet stuff in general. The main reason for adding a pinch of each -chili flakes and salt is to tone down the sugary taste.

“Exploding flavors and a kick of chili beats the cold weather for me.” It does work for me, am not sure if it will work for you, but what do you have to lose. TRY IT!!.

Love and Love.
