Dear August…


August has been fulfilling

 

You guys know that my blog is explicitly in English but some words I’d rather mention it in French. Let me start with August 1st, where here in Switzerland is the National day celebrations and with that comes fireworks and wood fire. Geneva is one of the best place to celebrate it if not the best one. Lots of visitors comes for it but we also have lots of expats. We all know it’s not where you are, it’s who you are with.

 From there there was a part II celebration on August 10th still in the same city, with a huge show of fireworks and music. With that comes hanging out with the crew. 

So here comes my first French / English word. This photo was taken by me and probably one of my favorite of all times! You guys know I love my black & white photographs. We were at the manège / carousel (amusement park) and boy let me tell you we had a lot of fun!!!

Let me tell you it’s been a while I haven’t done this type of activity, I actually thought I would die that day! I was even worried for the girls wearing earring! I screamed from the tops of my lungs throughout this entire ride lol.

This photo credit goes to one my good friend. His handle on insta is : @noamzilla. He has an artistic soul & is a good photographer. He’s actually the one on the very left (sorry Noam :P).  Our nights were fulfilled of churros, cotton candy, caramelized nuts & beer! Couldn’t ask for a better time! This crew – friends of mine was created end of June and we had a great summer all together, between, clubbing, picnics, hanging out at the Geneva lake, paddle, house parties, birthdays & many more, I can definitely tell 2019 has been good to me so far!

On that note. You guys enjoy your lovely Sunday. I definitely took the time for myself this weekend, as I need to slowdown. So after the gym and blogging, time to rest & watch old classic movies. Bisous my loves.

My July – August 2019 (PART I)


A summer full of plans!

Hello guys! It’s definitely been a hot minute. So much to say in short paragraphs. Hope y’all summer is going as fantastic as mine. Don’t even know where to begin but let me start with this. Let me tell you that I have had also some downside (which happens to all of us). But in overall the good side has conquered my beautiful summer. 

Within the first two weeks of July, I jumped right ahead by taking vacation by going to Rwanda and see my dad whom I haven’t seen for 3 long years. I decided it was about time to go pay him a little visit. And what I can say about this trip was definitely interesting, worth it & adventurous. Starting off with booking my flight tickets the day before my trip. Usually the tickets comes to a price of 1300 Swiss Francs but got it for more than half a price, the downside was waiting at the airport with sketchy people in Kenya oh and getting my suitcases 2 days after with Swiss Fondue in it! Other than that, to make it short, I arrived safely and back in the arms of my dad. We have had time to catch up a lot and had several father-daughter time 🙂 He actually took that second photo portrait of mine, so I guess we do have another photographer in the family!

Also pointing out, I spend quality time with friends, as well as with my family from my mom’s side but most of all being at my mom’s grave for her 10th year anniversary…

The month of August, was the time spent with my new crew of friends here in Geneva. But that’s another story to tell on my next blog spot with many pictures on the waiting list. On that note I am going to catch up by watching Friends and sleep soon. SO ready for that new week after a good Sunday of self care.

July 1st – Mom I love you


Dearest mom I love you


This year has been the 10th year anniversary of my mama who passed away and can’t believe how time flies by so fast. I remember it, like it was just yesterday. I just wanted this blog post to be a dedication towards the person that means the world to me. And for confidential reasons no photos of her & I will be posted online to avoid any kind of sharing on any social platforms. I value these visual moments as too private beside sharing stories memories.

Mom I love you.

And here comes June…


Summer is on rdv here in switzerland

 

Today I am writing this article under this current heat of 29 degrees, here in Geneva. Most of you may know that I am more into the cold kind of weather so when it goes above 23 or 25 degrees, then I suffer of hotness lol. Anyways enough about the temperature more about my next post.These upcoming photos, were taken last year around July or so and never posted them. (Don’t know why though…). Time is definitely due. I love the basic colors such as: white, grey and black, which I can never get tired of. It can be easily paired up with any other shades and who doesn’t like a good black dress?? 

For this look I’ve decided to go for a grey tint and a « stripy » style. The funny story is I’ve purchased the hat and my shirt at different periods of time and realized after months that these two items fully matched!! I decided then to do a series of self portraits. Here are some of my favorite samples below.

Now that I have more content for my blog and for you guys, I’ll try my best to be more consistent. Being a fashion blogger is a big passion of mine since 2009. Fashion is a huge part of my life, can’t get enough of it! Mind you, there are some old pieces showcased throughout these photographs so, some of them cannot be find in stores anymore but my mom always used to say this to me:  » When fashion goes around, it comes back around ». You will find similar of my clothing items in store or online.  

On that note you guys enjoy your week in all forms, productive or if you’re on vacation enjoy as well! I am definitely enjoying my last day of vacay.

The grey & white stripped shirt is from : ZARA

Coming back in full force


More & more ideas…

 

I’ve decided to comeback with new creative content for you guys. With the photographs below, it definitely showcases my fashion style. More like a street chic vibe. Oh but before I get into the main subject I just wanted to mention how of an amazing birthday I’ve had. Surrounded by my close friends and family around some couple of drinks, bowling (which was the best part of the evening) and finally going clubbing. That night fully reminded me of how lucky I am to have those people in my life filled with positive energy. 

Followed by weeks later, my dream came true, when me and some of of my Rwandese community friends & family had the chance to go to Milan for a convention about Rwandan Youth, which was a refreshing, learning & emotional experience. I have learned a lot more about my roots. Plus I’ve always wanted to go to Milan, I mean common it’s one of the fashion capital and not just to mention but I always end up flying out to a capital fashion city during the month of May (don’t ask me why lol).

Okay now back to the initial subject. Here are some cool photos taken from my new photographer Estelle. Thanks to her, I got brand new content for my blog but as well posted on other social media such as Instagram, where I’ve paused for the last 6 months. (I tend to do that once in a while when I am trying to do a cleanup or find my proper signature style. So here is the results. I am rearranging them as per category but here’s a mix.

  • The Versace look alike black jacket with red stripes and gold chain comes from: BERSHKA
  • White T-shirt « Paris Love » comes from: PULL & BEAR 
  • Vans comes from : POMP IT UP 
  • The black Jogging pants are from : H&M
  • The long navy blue & white gown is from : FOREVER21
  • The mini white laced top is from: BERSHKA
  • The black beanie is from the designs of Djibril Cissé:  Mr.LENOIR 

The end. You guys enjoy your Sunday.
