So I finally made something other than chicken and boy was it good!
So this time of year, it’s all about those hearty meals and I love myself a good comfort meal to get me in the festive mood. Am I the only one who spends up to an hour just walking around in a supermarket thinking of interesting ways to have dinner? Well this particular day I went into the mall and I knew I wanted some fish. If you are new around here then you know that fish really defeats me, like I just never know what to do with it. I was determined to make something that I would be proud of.
So once I got me some fish I now had to start thinking about what else I needed to go with it, did I want a curry? Did I want some deep fried fish? Some fish tacos? I had no idea but just the sight of all the Christmas lights and the festivities I knew I wanted something hearty and definitely spicy. Given that I spend hours in he supermarket, I get to see some new stuff that I haven’t tried before and just give it a go.
I found this absolutely delicious peeled tomatoes, because I wasn’t in the mood to start blending my tomatoes and also who knew they had such interesting mixes, I can’t wait to try something new. I am actually going to do my months shopping this week. So you guys best get excited about some delicious recipes for the festive season. Something for you and your family can enjoy, actually if you guys want me to try something out , just drop me a comment I would love to try it out.
So the essence of every stew is a great tomato base, I loved the fact that this tomato sauce had loads of chilies it gave the stew such a nice heat. You guys just need to grab a can when you drop into the super market. So let me get on with this recipe , you guys just have to give it a go it was everything.
What do you need?
1 Kg of Fish Fillet
1 can of Peeled tomatoes
1 white onion
1 tbsn of paprika , garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 a glass of white wine
How will you do it?
Saute one onion until translucent
Add in the spices until they cook out.
Add in the tomatoes and let them simmer ten minutes.
Throw in a table spoon of parsley and mix it up.
Throw in your marinated fish( I used pepper flakes, rice wine vinegar, salt and pepper for 30 minutes)
Throw in 1/2 a glass of wine.
Given that fish takes such a short time your meal should be ready in 15 minutes on low heat.
There you go, serve it on some coconut rice and enjoy.
Hope you guys enjoyed this recipe, I loved making this dish. Looking forward to hearing all the recipes you guys would like to see me try for the festive season.
Love you guys,
Live, love and be posh.
OH THIS WEATHER IS ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!
Ola my good people.
I think I am getting to the point of the year where my brain is slowly getting overwhelmed but if you are anything like me, we just need to push it just a bit more. A little more effort to get as much out of the year , it’s been a shitty year but a great year for fashion. I got my first pair of ripped jeans this year and dungarees are back. I have never been more excited about a trend coming back. I am currently looking for the perfect pair. If anyone has any leads on where I can get a great pair @jaytakeapi on Instagram and on Twitter holla at your boy I am dying for one.
That being said , I have always been a big fan of a nice looking tee , one that fits well , a great print I have been falig in love with neutral colors but I never have a problem venturing out into new colors. Like mustard that have given my wardrobe some crazy excitement lol.
So I started my own venture, I have always loved minimal prints so I got this amazing Posh tee that created quite the buzz. A couple of you guys reached out and said that you wanted one. At first I just pushed the thought aside so then I decided to work on my brand, all about that minimal goodness, Posh by Jay. I started this as a limited edition for my Jaytakeapic fam. My Posh people! We deserve to look posh together right?
So I paired it with these beautiful turquoise pants, that I got from Mr Price and this gorgeous over sized sweater that I got from my friends store. Your London Belle is a thrift store that gets you these amazing pieces that are super unique and boy do they make you look good. I will link her at the bottom of the blog post she will hook you up for sure. Another amazing addition to my closet are these gorgeous Adidas trainers. I keep saying how lucky I am , my good friend and sneaker head @Avatica gifted them to me and I love love love them!!!!
So as I said my store is open and ready for your orders, reach out to me. I would love to hear your thoughts on my brand and what you guys think. Be positive guys, I am all about your good vibes. Reach out to me on @jaytakeapic for all your orders I will give you more information when you do reach out.
Thank you for your overwhelming support, I love you guys so much!
I love you guys,
Live , love and stay #POSH
Ok third wedding this year! Either i’m a tent or a wedding cake, I think I need a holiday bae at this point.
Ola fam bam! I feel like this was my wake up call year, it may be time to get me a lover, I can’t say I’m in any particular rush to be honest but it would be nice. I see a lot of relationships that make me crave love but most of them are online. I can’t say that makes me want love because that looks nothing like the real thing. From this year I have learnt that love is kind, love is forgiving, love is super painful, love can make you loose your mind but to find love is such a beautiful thing.
I went to my girls wedding just last weekend and it was absolutely beautiful. With over 1500 people i’m pretty sure she got to experience the Sasha fierce syndrome because everyone came to love and support her. I wasn’t able to get the best picture of her dress but you can see most of it in my video. She looked absolutely stunning in a dress by Ogake who has been slaying the wedding dress game.
This post was more to share on how the day looked. I hate it when you go for an event and someone takes a picture of you and never puts it up. So I made a video that is up on my YouTube channel and all my pictures are up on this blog post. If you see a picture that you like feel free to share it on you platforms with a small credit to my blog. I appreciate that shit. People who give credit are quite posh.lol
Here is the full video of how amazing the day really was.
Thanks for stopping by, Have an amazing week fam! Love you guys so much.
Guys honestly , I don’t think I have seen an event that gives you value for money like the #JDBBQ
Hello sexy humans!
How are you doing, so last week I kept ranting about the Jack Daniels event. I even got to meet two of you who follow my page shout out to @Chepkorir and her meat mate lol , don’t judge from the name. The know just how much we ate at the event. Everything from prawns at the Carnivore stand,they did an exceptional job, to the Mutura and the honey glazed Jack Daniels ribs at coco Jambo , to the pork at Y Not BBQ. It was intense my friends. I loved how even the cocktails were super legit. My fave being the apple Jack just tangy enough and the right amount of sweetness.
They really know their stuff. Check out the beautiful faces that were at the event.
In case you haven’t watched my visual vibe on my YouTube channel of how it all went down. Check it out here. Hope you guys liked this post. Hope to see you at the next one my loves! Until then like my video, share my post with a friend and subscribe to my channel.
I love you guys,
Live , love and be inspired.

I haven’t taken stock in a while so I decided to take stock as I show you guys one of my latest additions to my closet. As always whenever Akisa of Wangari Mathenge gives me a call I know she is about to dress me up in something absolutely gorgeous. When I was going to Diani she called me up and told me she had a couple of pieces that I needed to see. I have been loving flowing fabrics that are airy and have gorgeous patterns. You dress up without having to make too of an effort.
Kimonos are slowly becoming a must have in closet. Just because they can be a great pick up on a long ass day. I have thing thing now where if I wake up feeling crappy I will dress to the nines , wear a piece that makes me feel both confident and fashionable. At some point in the day you end up feeling great and you can conquer the day. Do you guys do this as well?

Looking: forward to meeting my little niece Playing:With a lot of apps, i’d like to be sharing new aps with you guys. Are there any apps you guys are obsessed with right now? Wasting: A lot of time looking at holidays online. Maybe I need to get some work done before going on another one. Wishing: FOR A VACATION. Enjoying: Random music on Sound cloud. Waiting: For next weekend to attend the Jack Daniels event.Have you guys gotten your tickets? Buy them here Liking: The weather of late.
Smelling: Coconut oil. Love the smell. Wearing: Sweats , nothing beats comfort! Following: Timtothewild his instagram feed is supreme! Noticing: My bank account doesn’t like my lfestyle lol. Knowing: That I need a shave. Thinking: About my financial plan for 2017 Feeling: Tired
