Silk Bed Sheets

What’s actually a bed all about? That is a question that you’ll ask if there is some problem sitting in your subconscious. And that IS an important question! You need to know the make of the bed because it is what decides the quality of your sleep. Sleep better with eco-friendly silk comforter sets and other natural beds.

 

Eco-friendly gifts are a new way of gifting people health and happiness. You can choose from an interesting range of bamboo or silk filled comforters, craft products, furniture and more. The gift choices not only break the monotony, but are a socially amicable gifting option as well.

 

It is an age of green concepts. From green offices to green buildings, every other architectural creation demands the use of eco-friendly and non-toxic material. Alternatives and choices in this periphery are thankfully abundant. There is a range to pick from when the matter is about furnishing your home with non-toxic, eco-friendly items.

 

The fashion of greening-up homes and offices has reached a new level. In the begging, it was all about eco-friendly base materials for buildings. Now, people are shifting the green thoughts to fine-living and interiors. Innovation and demand have lead pleasantly surprising changes in this periphery.

 

However, whether you bring home an organic comforter or gift one, unless you are able to maintain its sheen and comfort, your gift won’t be appreciated as much it should be. Therefore, you should first learn how to make the silk or bamboo comforters look good on your bedding. The idea is to keep them from slipping away and keeping them crease free. While with cotton comforters it is difficult to stop creases from forming, silk is a wrinkle free variety. Therefore, you have only two things to be bothered about. One is to keep the silk sheets away from stains and the second is to tuck them in the bed in a manner that they do not slip away. Once these two things are taken good care of, you will not have to worry about your bed looking unkempt.

 

The quality of the comforter that you purchase is also important in determining whether the silk will last as a comforter or not. However, the fabric has to be both soft and strong at the same time. Because silk is naturally very slippery, you should see to it that the size of comforter you buy is big enough to not slip away from over or under you while you are asleep.

 

These are some of the things that you ought to remember while purchasing silk and bamboo comforters. Organic living is all about switching to natural. Read more about such green choices and live healthily. This way you can take care of your health and well-being for a better life.

Umebadilika-Young Killer Feat.Banana Zorro

He could be too young to think about marriage. However, that hasn’t stopped Young Killer to hear about “changes” that takes place after the couple say I Do. For many, unfortunately, true colors start coming out right away. For others, it can take years. At the end of the day,you look behind them and wonder…Oookay, what was I thinking?

Changes are good though. We wouldn’t be living at the oceans of technologies etc if no one had decided to improve something or change it altogether. It is part of life. Of course the changes in relationships can be brutal. Someone who adored you start giving you the most unladylike dustup, for example. The rage in him become a living thing. You just can’t understand him anymore.

Because his age wouldn’t convince many to pay attention especially when the subject is marriage, he tapped Banana Zorro who has been married for some years now. He understand, hopeful, the tantrums of relationships. The song is titled Umebadilika [You Have Changed]. It is Man Water and D Classic production. Here is it

Side Note: Did you also notice Banana Zorro’s make up?

Wema Sepetu-Engaged again

Wema Sepetu-Engaged again

Whether Wema Sepetu is engaged or not engaged-again by Diamond Platinumz shouldn’t make headlines, right? Or at least you’d like to assume so as I do. Well get out of circus tent. Breath. It could be true or not true. Unfortunately, that is highly due to the way we report news. We no longer pay attention to what she says. We write however we feel. Real questions with real answers are now treated like a stab in the heart. Painful.

We followed these reports through other media channels but, sadly, couldn’t fit the pieces together. If you ask me[ and depending on my mood] I will tell you, lack of accurate reporting, should be the news. Then, we can talk about rekindled love of Ms Wema Sepetu and her boo, Diamond Platinumz.

By the way, the memory of how the first engagement disappeared still edges my teeth….

Ali Kiba New Single Coming Soon

Ali Kiba New Single Coming Soon

Back in August 2012, we posted a post titled Ali Kiba Vs Diamond Nani Zaidi [Who Is Better Between Ali Kiba And Diamond?]. To this date, that post is among the most searched for posts on BongoCelebrity. These two  artists [Kiba and Diamond] have been compared and even rumored to have a “beef”. Of course no one can have conclusive evidence of the said “beef”. Ali Kiba recently made headlines by “talking dirty” a little bit about Diamond. If that was/is a publicity stunt, we will also never know. We can only guess.

As it turns out, Ali Kiba is set to release his new single in 4 days time. Earlier today he posted on his Instagram account the image you see above. His fans, as you can expect, went awe. They say, Ali Kiba is not only bigger, he is a giant! We’ll find out in about 4 days. Do the maths.

Kanye West GQ Cover

Like him or hate him, there is something we all can learn from Kanye West. I said “something” and not all the things. Okay? His style is easy and collegial at times. He is also known to “speak his mind”. That of course has landed him in some awkward situations at times but he’d care less. You can respect him for at least making you and I know where he stands.Right? Sometimes I have felt that when you listen to Kanye West talking and ranting is almost reflection of our own minds in muted format. You know what I mean?

Just after his wedding with Kim Kardashian, he gave GQ an Exclusive Interview. He talked about almost everything “Kanye West”. I don’t want to give you any juices. You check it for yourself HERE.

When I was growing up, I knew there was someone called Queen Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip. That was,of course ,just through geography, history classes and normal curiosity that saw us reading newspapers and magazine from the western world. I bet if Queen Elizabeth name was close to manuals on how to survive and succeed, I’d have paid little more attention.

Now if you would “judge” me for having less “obsession” to the royal family, I’d suggest you listen to my story first. I grew up in a country that practiced an African form of socialism [Ujamaa na Kujitegemea] whereby everyone is regarded equal.Our founding fathers abolished kingdoms sooner than later just after or before independence. Kings and Queens had to look in other ways to remain “royal”. We all became just citizens [wananchi]. All men and women who were able to work, were supposed to do so. Those who couldn’t [for lots of reasons] could be cared for by the state through folks who could work. You are your brothers keeper. Socialism, as you know, didn’t see much sunshine. The values, however, survived.

Years later, as I got closer to the Queen, I started observing  the “obsession” about the UK’s royal family. To most Canadians, for example, it is a big deal. I now understand why. Historical facts are there and no one can change history. It can be hidden but that’s about it and sometimes the truth always comes out.

Whether you are in that category of folks who follows everything “royal” religiously or not, you probably know Prince Charles and late Princess Diana‘s grandson, Prince George [born to Kate Middleton-The Dutches Of Cambridge and Prince William] is turning 1 tommorow. In celebration of his birthday that has so far captured lots of headlines around the world, the royal family has shared some of his images as he took those first steps. The young Prince can now walk. Here are some of the photos shared by the Royal Family and some from his earlier days.

Fifty Shades Of Grey-Movie

Fifty Shades Of Grey-Movie

I am books junkie. I love and enjoy reading. I read almost everything and about anything. I rarely have “unfinished businesses” when it comes to books. There is, however, one book[or books] that I couldn’t finish. I know this may surprise you [my ladies readers especially] I am gonna write or say it anyway; I was not able to finish reading best-selling trilogy Fifty Shades Of Grey by E.L.James. I am a dude..and may be just too much of a dude. A person who would rather heal his own wounds. When a book makes you stop and stare at the window like a puppy waiting for the “boss” to come home, you need to stop and act like your confidence level actually is higher than of a lion. The trilogy, therefore, set a bit different kind of tone. Yes, it the trilogy, to me, was/is that intense.

Now in case you are so eager to know or wondering why I didn’t finish them, here is the thing. As I was reading and realizing how Mr.Grey was so sure of himself and his easy power over women[woman], I heard there will be a movie. I said okay, I am gonna wait for the movie first. That was just my excuse to not finish it…not now. Yes you heard it right, EXCUSE.Over the years I have acquired skills and well…wisdom[can I say that again?]

Just so that you understand what kind of buzz this movie has already created, the official trailer is expected to drop this Thursday [July 24th] .months before the movie on Valentine’s Day eve February 13,2015. There is a “trailer” on YouTube which I can’t verify its authenticity, with almost 8 Million Views!

What sends the signals high and beyond? Well…Beyonce posted a teaser trailer on her Instagram accout (@Beyonce) and Instagram went crazy. To make a long story short, I am on the line waiting for the tickets[ in my crazy mind I have bought the ticket already and I am watching it]. Come Thursday July 24th, you will see the trailer here.

In case you are asking yourself whether Beyonce is on the movie, the answer is No. I am assuming Beyonce “power” with over 14 Million followers on Instagram might have convinced film producers to utilize it. After all, Beyonce’s followers fall into the young female target demographic for the film.

The film stars  Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. Additional stars include Rita Ora, Marcia Gay Harden and Luke Grimes.

Kwenu Vipi-Stamina Feat.Ney Wa Mitego

In life you can either choose to be neutral in nothing or stand up and claim your position. Of course, you have heard it before; a man who stands for nothing can falls for anything. That echoes the importance of standing for something.  However, before you decide to stand for something it’s a good idea to make sure you have a confidence level of a lion. Stones and jabs will be thrown to you.

Talking about standing for something, at times when the battles of Bongo Fleva Vs Bongo Hip-Hop might make you want to choose sides. Who is more like a person with a political talent with natural charm and the gift of persuasion and who is is nothing but a fake? Who has a quiet air of authority?

For a while[ and probably forever] these two sides have battled on stages and narrow streets of the land from Zanzibar to the outskirts of Mbeya. Now, before you get your mind twisted, these battles[its good to know] that they are just mere battles and nothing violent has occured [with few exceptions that can't be directly tied to Bongo Fleva Vs Hip Hop]

Here is one examples of the battles crafted in a musical argument between Rappers Stamina and Ney Wa Mitego. Are they sending a jab to Bongo Fleva artists who are arguably doing better than their “rivals”? The song is titled Kwenu Vipi [Literally Translation; How /What About Your Side]
