Day 18 of #BOTY2019: Travel experience(Place you went)

Kutambula kulaba is a common phrase coined by baganda whose literal translation is to travel is to see or traveling is seeing. hehehe!!

When you travel you see the other side of life,how people live,experience different cultures,eat food that might not exist where you come from. There`s so much learning that happens when one travels.

This year, my friends and I planned a trip to Fort Portal,which according to Wikipedia is a designated “Tourism city of Uganda”, located in the Western Region of the country. It is the seat of both Kabarole District and the Toro Kingdom.We visited the female and male hot springs-they are so hot that they let you boil an egg and you take it for eating later. We visited Amabere ga Nyinamwiru caves-these caves are shaped inform of nipples, Toro Palace-they have a king though we didn`t find him there,various waterfalls and so much more. The land is beautiful,the people are hospitable and the weather is perfect. Add it to your 2020 bucket list,already.

Day 16 of #BOTY2019: Business/service you started using

As we have gotten older,some of my friends have started businesses and I have showed up to support them. This I have done through  using their services,sharing about  their services on social media and recommending people. It`s no wonder that some of the best businesses or services I have on my best of 2019 list include my friends.Here we go;

Hweza creations-I have my own collection of items from Hweza Creations ranging from  vests,tees,and a Pearl of Africa jumper. They have a new collection of tie and dye products out and you bet I`ve placed my order already.

Kitiibwa designs. They manufacture beautiful and strong shoes. I talked about them in this blog here-https://rachealkizza.wordpress.com/2019/11/22/my-friends-hustles-part-1/

Sheraton hotel-A friend invited me over for an evening at the Sheraton hotel,on a day when they had live band and I loved it. Sheraton hotel has live band from Wednesday to Sunday -evenings only. Try them out this festive season.

A friend recommended Nadia`s salon as a place where my hair could get colored.I had searched in vain for natural hair salons that color hair but in vain. Adrine colored my hair so well that I have had it out since October and the color gets better with each wash.If you are in Uganda and want to color your hair,call Adrine on 0772 319956.

I have worn the hair in various twists since October. I originally had put red wine or maroon and with wash outs,this is what I have now.

Day 11 of #BOTY2019: Purchase

Dear readers,

I must confess,I woke up with little energy for writing, simply because I feel lazy. Not sure where to place the blame,I will go with Christmas mood.My body is ready to rest for a while.

My best purchase is no brainer-books. I have added a number of titles to my African authors book collection.

Second best purchase,tees from Hweza Creations. I love tees with words, and Hweza Creations gets me. Read about Hweza Creations –https://rachealkizza.wordpress.com/2019/11/22/my-friends-hustles-part-1/

MY FRIENDS HUSTLES: PART 1

Sharing is Caring. This is a phrase that you`ve probably heard be said over and over and over. For the next few weeks, I have purposed that I  am going to be practical with that slogan.

I`m all about sharing with the world what I do but I especially love sharing what my friends do. Not to brag, but I have some pretty cool friends.

I plan to do a 3 part series showcasing what my friends do. I`ve titled this series, “My Friends Hustles”.

I want you to know them and one day, give them business. I know I`m being ambitious but hey, that`s life mwattu.
