Sheila's Note

Wouldn't it be great if Valentines was an official holiday? I only say this because it feels like an eternity between the Christmas and Easter break! That being said, the pressure that most people feel about this day can be hard to express, especially when one is single and working in an environment where gardens of roses or horticultural produce - I once witnessed a woman carrying a huge banana stem wrapped in red ribbons- are delivered by the truckloads, from the crack of dawn to everyone, but you.


So this Valentines, we choose to shift the focus from what should women get, to all that can be enjoyed by singles, and menfolk! We're not selling out- believe me, it's a given that men will have to hunt a bear if necessary, to display their devotion! But no one should dread this day of love, and no one should be left out of the oohs and aaahhhs that come with good treats. In this month's issue we give you ideas on cost-friendly gifts for your man- no point, both of you going broke over gifts- and great gift-tings for singles. From scents, to makeup that makes a difference, to trips which will create memories that will last longer than flowers, and not take up permanent residence on your body- where did you think chocolate goes to once you eat it?


We also are glad to have Kenya's hair-cut prodigy Felix_HairPlus on board! From picking up awards at every hair competition in 2016, he's the one to cut your hair when it has to be done right! We continue to build on our directory and with more than 6,000 salons and stylists registered, we're all set to have it up on our website this month. If you haven't registered yet, please log on and sign up for free! We look forward to hearing from you, and sharing copies of Rembesha!


Here's to a great month, with lots of love,

We love to hear from you!  If you'd like to share your work as a stylist or salon, drop us a line, and if you'd like to share your work as a hair, beauty and lifestyle blogger, we've got room for you too! Keep it short and beautiful. Rembesha Kenya!!

Every Monday


Salon of the Month

Saffron Day Spa and Salon located along Muthangari Drive in Westlands is an exciting Moroccan-themed facility that transports you to an exotic hideaway in Marakech- all the while still in sunny Nairobi. Right from the moment you arrive, views of the lush garden by the car park already get your mind set for a break. The water fountain in the courtyard tinkles gaily, while butterflies flitter over the carefully planted and tended plants and blooms.


Designed to take away the stress of everyday life, the décor allows your mind to relax, with strategically placed pots of aromatherapy scents, spraying bursts of delightful fragrances in the gentle breeze that wafts across the facility.

Set on two floors, aching and sore muscles, skin and bodies, are soothed and pampered in the privacy of fully ensuite treatment rooms. Treatments range from basic to advanced body and skin care regimes. Saffron facilities have all been designed with your wellness in mind, with dedicated professionals whose smiles, skill and genuine dedication to your overall wellbeing, will lift your spirits, as you enjoy the ultimate spa experience.


For the total transformation, we recommend a day spent at Saffron, where you can shake up your fitness plan with Power Vibe Studio hosted at Saffron, followed by the Moroccan Hammam treatment in your private steam room. The treatment comprises of several procedures with the use of authentic products such as the black Moroccan soap, the Moroccan ‘Ghassoul’ clay mask, and a moisturizing massage with Argan oil. Polish off your new and relaxed self, with a hair-do at the spacious full service hair salon, while sipping refreshing fruit infused water and herbal teas. An expert manicure and pedicure in the most serene setting, will ensure you are polished and ready for the world.


Combining wellness, beauty and health effortlessly, a day spent at Saffron Spa and Salon is sheer bliss. It’s about time you got the spa break YOU deserve!
