MY TIME ON THE SET OF VICTORIA’S LOUNGE & WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT

Just before the show aired last Thursday,i wrote about it in Lights.Camera.Action

The irony only hit me a few seconds later…..being a stay -at -home parent had got me on national Tv

Who would have thought…?

Victoria Rubadiri is as gracious in real life as she is on TV and we had a blast on the set at the design studio  of Mambo Interiors.

Being very interested in issues around women and parenting ,i asked Victoria a few questions on what had inspired Victoria’s Lounge, as well as how the reception for the show has been so far.

On the concept for the show , Victoria says she wanted to create a platform from where people could have  candid conversations about their experiences,you know kind of like the  ones we have with close family and friends around our kitchen tables or living rooms and in doing so  inspire and encourage someone .

Being a news anchor heavily influenced her decision to have a show around social issues as she wanted to interrogate issues  further than the time availed during a news bulletin would allow.As a result Victoria has seen how willing people are to talk about issues affecting them ,offer to help others as well as be influenced to seek help.

Through the choice of topics and guests she brings on the show ,she wants to encourage people  to talk and eventually move to seeking solutions to the issues that they are facing .And that people are able to draw encouragement and hope from her guests experiences,no matter what it is they are facing in life

As for her guests she wants them to have the gratification of knowing that by sharing their experience  they helped to inspire  and encourage someone.

So far, the reception for the show has been overwhelming and a  complete surprise was the large percentage of men who watch it ,such that they are thinking of future topics for the show that would include their male viewers.

We wish Victoria and her great team all the best in everything they do.

Make sure to catch the show every Thursday on NTV AT 7:30 pm and while at it become a fan of Victoria’s Lounge and make sure not to miss out on  inspiration.

RANDOM THINGS

There are somethings i have been upto over the last couple of weeks that have left me inspired,bewildered and plainly shocked.But the truly inspiring things have been pretty random.Like a friend who askedtoseeme for some blogging advice which then turned into  into coffee then into the famous java dawa accompanied by lots of laughter over the many things we have in common.

Or the stack of books i am reading which i need to finish reading.

Or that this post has been typed using a virtual keyboard because mine is not working ,which is a test in patience for me.

I have read 3 chapters of each book and  halfway with James Dobson Bringing up girls which i want to do a review for later and Becoming a Better You by Joel Osteenwhich definetely deserves a review too.

You may want to look at the other book reviews i have done before which are here.

Then i have a new found love for street magazines like this Martha Stewart Weddings i got and with truly beautiful photos. beautiful photoswhich appear at the top of the post!

You can get great things when roaming the streets of Nairobi,all for 300 shillings and i get to drool at the beautiful dresses and get inspiration for my next event planning gig.

I am trying to takee better pictures.

What random things have you been upto lately?

Share.
