Broken!!!

I have not been blogging as much as I used to. It is not because I do not want to. But for starters, my camera fell and finally died on me. I was trying to take some pictures while I was on a bridge in Yokohama. I put it on the rail of the bridge and took a picture using the timer. But when I went to retrieve the camera, my clumsy hands just push it and it fell two stories down. I knew that it would happen with my luck. I did find it in one piece and I could turn it on. But the shutter button was pushed further inside the camera as it impacted the ground and I cannot push it to take pics. My pics were still intact though and here they are for your pleasure.
What I am wearing:

Scarf / Sunnies - Daiso 100 yen store
Tee - Homes
Dress - order made from home
Shoes - Forever 21
Bag - Thrifted

I had this dress made before I went home for Summer. I wanted something in blue tie dye for a while. And I asked for my Dad to look for the material and have his tailor make me a maxi dress. The material is a tie dye that a tribe from the South of Senegal wears. I was thrilled to see the dress but it was too tight around my breast. I went to see the tailor and he altered it. I particularly like the fluidity of the dress although the material is a bit stiff. But the biggest problem is that it bleeds. After wearing it with my white tee, it turned a bit blue and the bag I was holding that day also suffered from the dress. I can see many wear out of it but I will have to be extremely careful around white stuff.





The day of the pics was wonderful. It was one of the last days of Summer, not too hot, not too cold with such a blue sky. I went in town to buy a bday gift, but ended up enjoying a stroll in Jack's mall one last before it closed its doors for a renovation. Jack's mall is really small compared to other malls in Yokohama but it had all the essentials: a home goods store, a 100 yen store, Toys R us, Sports related stores, clothing stores, restaurants and fast food chains, and even a small amusement park for the kids. I liked going down there with the kids or by myself. And I am a bit saddened that the place is closed now. I can only rejoice with the fact that they are going to build something bigger and maybe better...

DIY/ DIM Laced up Ballet flats

Hello readers!

How are you?

Today I am bringing you yet another super easy Diy. It is not about clothes since I have been lazy to make something from scratch lately. Today is about the laced up flats that have been popping everywhere recently. I have been lusting over them for a while but I could not find them anywhere in Pune. I was about to give up when I saw some bloggers "diying" the shoes. It looked so easy that I decided to make them as well. For a while, I put my Diy on hold because I wanted pointed toe flats that I did not have in my closet. Or so I thought!

While going through my shoes the other day I found this pair of Trf Zara striped flats that I had for ages but barely wear. I decided that I would use these shoes.

If you also want to Diy the shoes, here is what to do:

1. You will need :
- a pair of flats, round toe or pointed toe would be fine ( but pointed look a tad more elegant I think)
- 2 to 3 yards of cord
- A heavy duty punch hole  ( mine was a normal one…

Blanche Neige (Snow White)

Growing up, I used to watch Disney Princess Movies. I also used to believe that someday my Prince Charming would come. Now, it is safe to say that after a failed relationship, I no longer believe in fairy tales. I no longer believe in love. I have love for people around me: my family, my friends Yet I have given up on Romantic Love. I know it exists but I am not sure it is for me. 
Now I hate fairy tales because they depict men as being charming, loving, caring, always there to save the day. Well, in real life most men are not. And I am not really blaming them because after all they are only human. I am not like Snow White or Aurora either. I am not beautiful, at least not the standard, I am not soft I do not speak in a lady like voice. I do not sing to or with animals, and I do not sacrifice myself to save who I love or take abuse with a smile. Well I used to. But not anymore.
I have locked my heart and threw away the key in the sea. Because I do not want to fall for someone again a…

A visit to the Musee des Civilisations Noires

Hello! Hello!

Happy New Year 2019! I hope you had a wonderful time with your family and your friends during the last days of 2018. I had a wonderful time with my entire family, but also attending weddings and parties with my colleagues and other friends.

But today, I will tell you all about the best day I had in 2019 so far. During the Winter break, I had decided to take my boys to  the new Museum that opened in December. It is called Museum of Black Civilizations. And I was very eager to check it out. I had called in advance to check the dates and the entrance fees. Turns out, the entrance is free all the month of January.

On January 3rd, I dragged the kids along. The Museum is located in downtown Dakar. It is right opposite the "Grand Théatre", near the soon to be open TER train final stop. We arrived there just before midday. The museum is big, and round in shape. It is very spacious inside, with big columns and high ceilings. The main colors are beige and brown. The exh…
