Fashion blogger Sharon Mwangi has said she has been fighting depression for a longtime now but has never let the public know.

She recently took to social media to share her depression story saying that she was forced to mask it with a warm face but was suffering inside.

“If you know me or if you’ve followed me for a while you know that I literally always have a smile on my face & on all my pictures too.  However, For years, I have battled depression, self doubt, among other issues & I did it with a smile on my face. (Talk about being a pro at masking lol),” she said. 

The fashion blogger went on to add that she had to finally let go of her fears and opened up with the issue which made her feel better.

Opening up 

“I finally let go of all my fears and self doubt and I open up in my latest video, (probably the most vulnerable you’ll ever see me ?– direct link in bio) and talk about my personal experience with mental health, a conversation I feel is very neglected in Kenya although a lot of us battle these issues. And Oh, this means I’m back on YouTube now after months of being away ????,” she said. 


“I have since learnt (in the hardest ways possible) & taught myself to find happiness and inner peace in myself. I still struggle sometimes but I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and I hope for anyone who’s still struggling that they’ll get to this point too.”

This Is Ess: I was scared of leaving the house without make up

Fashion blogger Sharon Mundia aka ‘This Is Ess’ has opened up on how she once had this immense pressure of staying perfect 24/7 just like her Instagram posts.

In her blog, the popular fashionista and mother of one shared that she was swallowed by the ever-perfect Instagram world which left her depressed as she was trying to impress people in the real world.

“The thing with this beast that is social media is that it has the power to build your dreams to unfathomable heights in the same way it can swallow you whole,” she said in the post.


She went on to add that she always wanted to look like her filtered and edited photos in real life something that left her empty in the long run.

“I felt indebted to my community to the point that I couldn’t step out of the house without makeup lest I disappoint them. A lot has changed since then and I know now more than ever it’s important to release my grip on perfection. Who wants to live in a crippling world that draws from others’ agendas and not your own values or intentions?”

Misogynists grumble as Sharon Mundia’s husband is seen drunk and in company of another woman 

Lonina Leteipan has given misogynists something to talk about when he was seen with another woman. Lonina and his wife are said to have separated after he allegedly caught Sharon Mundia having s3x with her friends.

Photos of Sharon Mundia’s husband cozying up to another woman have further authenticate the lesbian orgy rumor. The fashion blogger was reportedly caught by her husband in a threesome lesbian orgy with Patricia Kihoro and  Fena Gitu.

Lonina Leteipan is said to have kicked Sharon Mundia out of their matrimonial home after he caught her smashing Kihoro and Fena Gitu. The banker is now wagging on people’s tongue after he was seen drunk and in company of another woman.

He’s always drunk and in company of different women

Apparently Lonina is still devastated by his wife’s infidelity. A tweep who shared photos of Lonina says nowadays the banker is always drunk and in company of different women.

Misogynists led by Cyprian Nyakundi blames toxic feminism for Lonina’s misery. Nyakundi argues feminists are draining life out of many young men in Kenya.

“There are photos doing round of Lonina Leteipan, ex-husband to famous fashion blogger Sharon (This Is Ess) Mundia which give a clear picture of what toxic feminists can do. Fed on a steady diet of noble-intent, Lonina did everything right, flying a chopper to Mt. Kenya, going down on one knee, destination wedding in Watamu, being the perfect dad, but still, it was not enough for this toxic feminist.

“The young man is confused and conflicted. He’s wondering what he might have missed. But remember toxic feminists are good actors. They can fake love, they can fake emotion and more importantly, they can fake an orgasm. When you’re f@cking them, they’ll call you all sorts of names, making you feel like a king. Now people who see him on the streets say he’s become a pale shadow of his former self. Has started finding solace in the bottle. The temporary solution has been to sleep with as many women as possible.

“Anyways, Lonina was a young man with immense potential. His only problem was falling and investing in vanity. My nigga’s, treat these b@tches with the contempt that they deserve. They’re heartless bitches who will leave your ass and move on to the next target without harbouring any guilt or remorse. It’s the extremes of our break-downs which vary. On one hand Dennis Okari has immersed himself in religion, preaching and motivational-speaking, while on the other extreme, Lonina will find solace in the bottle and hoe’s. Don’t blame them. It’s the recovery-mechanism. Healing process. When Kanye West sang “Heartless” he knew how Amber Rose had f@cked him over,” wrote Cyprian Nyakundi.

Below are photos of Lonina Leteipan that were shared online:

“Before i got pregnant i had a horrible track record of eating various things and eating healthy. I would have six slices of white bread for breakfast, i would have pizzas and chicken chips and just greasy things because i love them. I got pregnant and for the first trimester leading up to second trimester as well i had the worst morning sickness. It was so bad, i was smelling food and would throw up and i had to take medication for that to just help my body to keep some food so i could nourish my little one. I genuinely tried to eat healthy and thankfully my body transitioned into this phase where i actually liked greens in fact one of the things i did when i was pregnant is when i woke up one morning and i was craving a salad for breakfast. At the very beginning i asked my obstetrician to give me an idea of how much weight she thought i should add or average on the weight spectrum. The main thing that helped me loose my baby weight was breast feeding. second thing is diet.”

Now three months after delivery, Sharon took to IG to announce that she was back. The fashion blogger shared her first postnatal photo on Instagram and everybody was blown away by her figure. She looks yummy as always.

Sharon Mundia’s first postnatal photo

“About a year ago I abruptly decided to take a step back from blogging/social media. It had been many months of this feeling of self doubt, persistent fear and sense of disconnect creeping in to the point where I felt creatively crippled. Content creation became a chore and I couldn’t fully connect with this community I had spent years building. I didn’t know what my “why” was and I felt like a fraud; something I’ve discussed in a recent YouTube video (link in bio). I’ve had a long time to reflect and I’ve rediscovered my love for creating content, love for my body (hello child birth!) and love for my truest self. But most importantly, I now know what my intentions are with this platform and with any other I choose to share bits of my life through. I’ve fought hard to shake off those negative feelings and thoughts and replace them with ones that celebrate life and honour my calling, wholly and unapologetically.

“On that note, I’d like to reintroduce myself: Hello, I’m Sharon. Let’s light the world up together. ✨

“P.S.: Motherhood is this big, beautiful, sometimes scary thing that I wear proudly and I can’t wait to share more with you. ??? ?@tatianakaranja”


“For a while I had been feeling unsettled” Sharon Mundia reveals why she quit social media

The last time Sharon Mundia aka This Is Ess posted on Instagram was on December 25th 2016, some six months before she gave birth to her daughter.

The Fashion and lifestyle blogger was very active especially on Instagram where she used to engage her fan, many people believed she quit social media to concentrate on being a mother to her first child. But this wasn’t the case.

So why did Sharon stopped posting on social networking platforms? In her YouTube channel, Mundia explained that she lost track and felt burdened to continue with her activities on social media.

“For a while I had been feeling unsettled in my role as an influencer or as a creative, I didn’t know how to be myself and I would just share because of sharing or because a contract says I need to put this up at this time and it wasn’t authentic, it wasn’t really me. It was making something that I once loved feel like a chore and a burden and I was starting to resent it. And after months and months of thinking about it I realised that there were a couple of issues I had about it, I didn’t know what my why was. Whereas I started my blog because I needed an escape because I was going through something in my life… at some point I was like, wait a second, I actually like this, let me do it for good. And then it became if I’m doing this solely then it needs to make financial sense, so now I’m doing it chasing the money. All that was good but that can’t be what is fully driving me yet it was something I completely enjoyed. It wasn’t clear what my purpose was and I started to feel guilty… it was driving me nuts… ” Sharon Mundia explained.
