David Delivers at Nothing Like It

Posted on April 18th, 2017

I was lucky to be given the opportunity to try out the new Stylist at Nothing Like it Salon & Spa in Hardy last week. David is young, trendy, and above all, terribly nice. Do not let his “quirky” English fool you – David knows what he’s doing, especially in the cutting department. My haircut took 45 minutes with absolute attention to detail and a lovely end result. David’s talents go above and beyond hair styling though – he is also a tattoo artist, does fabulous nail art, and gives an amazing Vietnamese foot massage! I left the Salon 3 1/2 hours later with great highlights, a funky new haircut, and feeling like a million bucks!  Photo of happy customer with David The two branches of Nothing Like It (Karen Shopping Centre above KPS and 2nd floor Hardy Shopping Centre) offer comprehensive hair and beauty treatments for ladies, gentlemen and … Continue reading

I’m now told reliably there is no bright light. One of the best coasts in the world with its award winning beaches lies virtually empty. With the beaches empty, the hotels struggle to survive. Kenya’s coast is or was all about mass tourism, with large numbers of package holidaymakers arriving on charter flights from Europe directly into Mombasa. Today few still operate, even those that do, with vastly reduced capacity. Our safari destinations to the best game parks and reserves in the world are bereft of tourists. In times of plenty particularly during the migration, deals can still be had, something not previously experienced. Resident rates abound. Local so-called domestic tourism … Continue reading

Unfamiliar with Kenyan Cowboys? No idea where to live in Nairobi and clueless about the local slang? Here are some top tips for expats On every safari, trip to the coast or evening in, there is a frantic rush to make a cocktail and watch that famous African sunset with awe Photo: Tony Karumba/AFP Having lived in several different countries growing up, with family roots stretching back to England, I can’t imagine living anywhere else in the world but Kenya. It’s a country that captures you when you arrive and never really leaves you. I have seen countless friends come and go: those whose families work for the UN, NGOs and embassies who can only stay as long as their posting allows, new families and budding entrepreneurs. I have watched as they try to adapt to the country, seen their exasperation as things happen very slowly and I have seen them … Continue reading
