Seaside Brunch

Hello my dears!

It has been a minute. Happy New Year by the way.

I have been away, busy with daily life and feeling ininspired about this blog.


But a simple seaside brunch changed that.

I went to Chez Fatou which is a seaside restaurant with my Bff. That place has been on our bucket list since 2016 but back then, we lacked the fund to visit. Now that we are both in a better place (Praise the Lord!), we decided to give it a try. Truth be told I visited the place two weeks ago with my other Bff on visit from the US. And I had a great time with her then.

Today was no different. The restaurant was packed but we were seated under the shades at a table instead of plastic chairs on the sand like the last time. For those who do not know, Chez Fatou is a restaurant that is on the seaside of Dakar, next to Almadies area. It is very popular for brunch and is always packed with a young hip and international crowd.

We ordered the All American breakfast with toast, eggs, ham, potatoes, pancakes, juice and coffee. Today the service was slow and my scrambled eggs did not look the part. My bff expected her pancakes to be bigger but she forgot that she is no longer in the US ( we were both used to the Denny's breakfast slam). Nevertheless we had a great time chatting about our love life or lack there of. It proves to show that it is not the place but great company that makes me happy.

I bought these mules for my Mother on Christmas but I should have kept them for myself. By the way they are made in Senegal.

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…
