Spoiler Alert

Last week, I took the Friday off to go out with the kids who were on school leave. I originally planed to go visit Goree Island again but by the time I was ready, it was too late to go and enjoy a full day. So instead I took the kids to see the last Marvel movie Avengers Endgame.

I have to confess that I am huge fan of Marvel movies. I think I watched every X-men and every Avenger Movies, in theatres and out. I used to read some of the X-men comics when I was a kid also.  Funnily, I am not into any other fantasy movies like Harry Potter, Twilight or Games of Throne. I actually will skip a new series on TV or Netflix that deals with fantasy. But Marvel got my heart. Maybe it is because they cast Robert Downey Junior as Iron Man. Or maybe because I always wanted to have a super power. I am not sure. Whatever the case, I am glad that Avengers is over because they took enough of my money between the movies, and the toys I had to buy my kids.

Anyway, before going to the movies, I took the …

Easter Bunny

Happy Easter everybody!

I usually do not blog more than twice in a month but I had to show you my Easter dress.


Scarf - Thrifted Dress - Thrifted (M&S) Bag - borrowed Shoes - Locally made
For Easter, we usually spend the day at my catholic cousin's house. And I knew exactly what I wanted to wear. I thrifted this dress back in January at the Wednesday market. In my city, there is a market that is going around every day, from areas to areas,  On Saturdays, it is near my house. And on Wednesdays, it is near the university. Most of the time, you find the same vendors. But for some reasons, I find more deals at the Wednesday market. There is this stall there, that sells clothes from Korea. Most of the dresses are in small sizes but from time to time you can find plus size clothing. Last January, I found this barely worn M&S dress in a beautiful pink color. I bought it for 1500 XOF or less than 3$. I actually forgot about it after I washed and ironed it. It was only when I was rearr…

Creole Remix

Hello!

It has been a while. I am not even sure as to why since I have not been that busy with work or life. This year is quickly passing by. I can hardly remember what I did in January but it must have been easy breezy. February was hard due to illness in my family. And March was my Happy month because friends and family welcomed four baby girls. I was so psyched.

We are in April now, and Easter is approaching (this week end). Catholic families will start preparing this millet porridge with peanut butter sauce called Ngalakh that they will give to their Muslim friends. My Mother has already received hers from two neighbors last week; And I spend the entire weekend eating the velvety sweet and rich porridge. If you know me, you know I love peanut butter. My favorite chocolate is Reeses. If I was not afraid of dying of diabetes or my skin breaking out, I would eat tons of Ngalakh and Reeses.

Anyway, here is today's look. Nothing new here, just me remixing my second go- to- uniform o…
