Mickey Mouse

As I am taking these pictures, fireworks are banging outside my balcony. I am not sure I have told you already but I live right across the river from a hotel and behind a hall. It means that whenever there is an event like a wedding or a concert I get treated to free fireworks. On busy weeks, I get to watch three. Some are short, others long but they are all so loud. It is a blessing in disguise. I thought I would be bored by now but every time I hear them, I rush to take a look. My kids enjoy them as well and they like to sing Fireworks by Katy Perry, while watching them. How do they know the song? Madagascar 3.

Anyway tonight, I was invited to a barbecue by some friends. I could have gone with tee and jeans or tunic and jeans but I wanted different and comfy around the waist as I knew I would be indulging in good food. What's comfier than a maxi dress? Nothing in my book. So I grab this "in your face" maxi and added a dark  jacket to tone it down.


Jacket - Max
Dress - M.G. road
Shoes - Sole to soul
Bag - Utsav fair
Mickey mouse ring - Clover center

I love the jacket. I was about to buy a second one in leopard but I did not want to get too carried away. I should have because it is so versatile.


 Furthermore, the Neon color of the dress makes me happy. They had the same one in royal blue but I discovered that as much as I love the color it does not love me back. Plus, I found the gem on the streets of M.G. road. The shops are full of good deals but the best bargain is with the street vendors. Trust me on that!



Mickey Mouse Bling Ring

And this ring, Swoon! I always wanted a mickey mouse or Minnie mouse tee ( and I am working on an embellished tee but it is taking forever). So I could not resist this blinged ring that I spotted at Clover center while buying accessories for my business. It is one of those things that just makes me happy. My youngest son who adores Mickey was jealous that I was sporting such a jewel and I bet that if his fingers were bigger he would wear the ring. Lol!

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…
