This is one of my fav’ personal fav’ pic I took couple of years ago at a dance show. It’s blurry but I love it, I love it because of the movement in the moment.One of my fav’ things to do is take pictures .I love portrait photography, street style, events photography.I love underlining real emotions implied in the gesture, the movement and the imperfections. I would like to develop a stronger photographic personal sense. I recently found out about the interview series by renown celebrity photographer Mark Seliger on the Reserve Channel via youtube, I am learning lots through them. Yaye

If a young woman is beautiful but has no discipline, she will lose her looks as she grows older. If a plain woman is disciplined she will undoubtedly become more beautiful with time” Sophia Loren For startup here is  my beauty routine: Je m’enduis de karate before taking a shower avec une noisette d’huile d’amande . Step 2 :Take a shower with traditional Malian soap or wonderful smelling bar of soap (i loveeeee soaps), wash my face with l’occitane honey soap (cheap and so good) After shower, if my skin still feels a bit  dry un poco d’huile et c’est tout:) I love fruity ,dandyish perfume so selon  my feeling of the day,  I debate over pamplemousse, flowery, citrusy,orangy,ambreish,vanillaish scents:) Usually a touch of Lipgloss or chapstick qui me plait & I’m out & when I want to make a bigger effort, a darker lipstick and I’m off! C’est tout.When I read on

“There will be friends who never have a kind thing to say or an encouraged word to offer.Throw them a kiss, then show them the door.” Gaby Union/Ebony October 2012 Today was a wonderful day! One of my dearest friend is in town. She’s the kind of  friend that ‘s always available to listen, to encourage , to support you all the way, laugh when you need to make light of a situation.She’s the kind of friend that makes you smile, that keeps you positive despite the difficulties. I’m blessed to have a few, even if we don’t speak “on the regular” but when I think of them, I smile. For example on the picture above, my girl Mai was helping put on my shoes on my wedding day.It might not be much but it meant a lot because it was  a special time in your life. My very good

I often come across talented individuals that I mean to share with you guys here but I never did, don’t know why! But I’ve decided that from now I will post about the things, the people, the videos, the pictures that really inspire & move me.It could be for many reasons; one them being authenticity, the desire & ability to be oneself no matter what.The desire to teach people, to share your talent no matter how many people you reach, the most important thing  being able to reach someone. I think that Guadeloupean artist Ines Khai embodies just that. As soon as she opens her mouth, you are transported to the island of guadeloupe, in the mystery of the ancestry, in the mysticism of the drumming.She is a story teller, her band is composed of two Congolese musicians, an American & Irish musicians. Her music is a mix of traditional

Since I’ve been away from blogging, I gave birth to little Rida. Yesss she’s here:) she’s 7 month old Alhamdoulilah and giving me life.

As I’m maturing as a woman, it gets clearer 2 me that life is full of colorful moments some …..happy as pink, some …. merdeux as black . But when we try to keep our optimism, our faith in Allah it can be a succession of great adventures. “Vis chaque jour comme si tu allais vivre 100 ans.Vis comme si tu vivais le dernier jour de ta vie” Ibn Arabi-Sufi Mystic & Philosopher

Happy Easter you guyz, Hope everybody is having a fabulous time with their loved ones:) So one of my fav’ thing from America and that I missed dearly was cupcake so when I found out that photographer Gogo Sy had a side business as a cupcake entrepreneur I couldn’t wait to try. I called 2 days in advance and decided to try with the hubby just 4 cupcakes, chose vanilla & chocolate flavors. She was really nice on the phone and yesterday she delivered my guilty pleasure.First of all I was happy to see a young sista doing her thing and doing a fun thing and I was even more excited when she told me that she would be opening up a cupcake store very soon , just can’t wait. So my fav’ was this vanilla cupcake filled with jelly inside, it was moist and the cream was on point.

Chocolat, chocolat, it’s good to know that fine chocolate is being produced in Mama Africa.While serving as peace corpes volunteers,Tim McCollum and Brett Beach fell in love with the beautiful island of Madagascar & its production of cocoa. They wondered why since over 60 percent of  the world production of cocoa is being produced in Africa, how come  there were not many fine chocolate being made in Africa so they jumped on that idea & Madecasse chocolate was born.  The cool thing is that this business brings jobs to Malgachi people indeed they harvest, they cultivate the cocoa and even the packaging is made in Madagascar. Madecasse offers 8 types of eating chocolate like pink pepper & citrus chocolate,cinamon & sakay chocolate, sea salt & nibs chocolate and of course your good old milk chocolate. Apart from the eating chocolate they also sell baking chocolate and vanilla products. Check them
