Current mood: Yellow

The weather has been unpredictable recently. One minute it is hot and the next freezing cold. Then it starts to rain. It is so shifty that I got sick two week ends ago. We went to check the Rambo circus in Deccan after lunch on that Saturday. The last time I went to a circus was back in Japan and it was a "Cirque du Soleil". Therefore I did not expect much from this circus. But it was great. The ambiance was old school but the people were pros. My kids and I enjoyed all the shows and we even got to laugh out loud at the clowns even though we did not understand Hindi. But the circus was cold because they put the air conditioning on blast on a day that was fairly cool. As a result I caught something ( a cold, the flu? Who knows?) and I was down with fever, and body ache from Saturday evening till Monday. I had not been sick like that in a long time and it was not a good feeling. Thankfully it did not linger and I was back to being myself the next Wednesday. Being sick sucks particularly when you are a mother because mothers are usually caregivers. Thankfully my family was great. My kids brought me blankets and even massaged my head to release the headaches. I usually do not like their massages but this time it felt great. The hubby was also very good doting on me. That was a nice change.

Today also, it rained. But by the time I was done taking these pictures, it stopped. I do like the weather in Pune but it can be highly unpredictable like me. I had decided to wear this skirt after forgetting about it in my closet for a long time. But in my head I was going to pair it with a embellished black tunic. However at the last minute I decided for this yellow blouse that I have never worn. I do like the color but the cut is boxy and not flattering on my figure. Nevertheless, I did not to let that stop me today so out it went.


Yellow blouse - thrifted then embellished
Maxi skirt - H&M
Shoes - Reliance Footprint

It was a blouse I had thrifted three to four years ago in Houston and embellished (read how here). It is such a nice well made piece that it is a shame I do not wear it often. But I think it will change from today.



Silver ring - gift


Indian earrings - bought at Mariplex week end flea market


I leave you with some pics of the circus. It may have ended by now but I am sure they will be back in the city soon.

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…
