Xmas lunch and wardrobe planning

Hey Y'all. Let me tell you about the fantastic day I had:
I had an early Xmas lunch with some friends at a nice hotel restaurant in Minato Mirai. The place is called Sirius and is located on the 70th floor of Landmark Tower (the tallest building in Minato Mirai).

Here is what I wore:
 
Scarf - Walmart
Fur vest - Thrifted
Jacket - random store in Nandemon, South Korea
Dress - G.U.
Top - Walmart
Pants - A'Gaci
Shoes - Shimamura
Bag - I world
Necklace - gifted

I felt like wearing all black today. But I just could not. I had to blend with grey. I wanted to look elegant, and I think black and grey are simple colors that could have made me pull it off. However, it just did not feel elegant enough. I guess it is because of the boots or the length of the vest. I am thinking that my other Suede wedge boots would have looked better. But it was going to take me forever to put them on this morning, and I was running late. So I settled for my motorcycle boots which are easier to wear.

The lunch was great. It was a buffet so there was lots of choice but I did not stuff myself. I had a potluck lunch yesterday that I am still trying to recover from. However, the view was to die for. I really enjoyed the decor of the restaurant.

Before heading to the lunch, I took a class on Wardrobe planning. The instructor was the lady who was "doing" almost everyone's color at school last year. I learned a lot from the class even though I had to rush out of there to be in time for the lunch. I am thinking that I may use the tips she gave me to try and clean my closet. It is getting too out of control lately. It has been a while since I bought something for myself ( more than a month) but yet I feel like there are too many things that I probably need to get rid of before I go shopping. Winter cleaning, anyone?

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…
