SUMMER STYLE INSPIRATION

I don't know about you but summer is my favorite season of the year not only because of the warm weather, schools vacations and the fact that we can do so many outdoor activities, but also because people seem to be more happy and everyone just looks better with some colors and light clothes. It's a fun and playful season for me as it's so easy to choose an outfit and get dressed  when you're going to work, to an event or just hanging out in town with your friends and family. It usually takes me a long time to get ready in winter unless I've prepared my outfit the night before. Does this sound familiar to you?

So to welcome Summer and celebrate it, I decided to wear this red blouse with black leggins that I paired with red floral platform heels in black. Accessories such as floppy hats, chokers, and sunglasses are definitely a must for me as I wanted to create this sophisticated, comfortable and stylish look.  I'm more of a maximalist person so most of the time I'll go for bold, unique, colourful and classy designs. I hope this style inspired you. So let's celebrate Summer and spread happiness around us!

5 AFRICAN FASHION BRANDS TO KNOW

It is definitely a new era in fashion where there are no rules for creativity and our imagination is the only limit to what we can hope to have or accomplish. Have you noticed the creative explosion of african fashion lately? Some years ago, we had a hard time to find ethno chic designs that blend the african and western cultures, so it was difficult to find and wear unique and trendy african designs for all occasions. It seems that we were limited to a few and same styles made of wax, basin, kente or batik fabrics, etc. 

As the needs of consumers change over time and with the growing competition, fashion forward designers are becoming more aware of the fact that they have to keep up-to-date with international standards and therefore satisfy their most valuable consumers. I'm so delighted to see the new development of african fashion through a variety of amazing, stylish and unique designs ranging from Streetstyle, Prêt-à-porter to Haute Couture.

Traditional patterned fabrics such as wax, kente, basin are now being combined with leather, suede, cotton, organza, silk and many other fabrics to make beautiful handbags, clothing, belts, jewelry, shoes, glasses, sunglasses etc. These designs have become so trendy and they are offered in a wide selection as well that now we can wear them for all occasions and in any seasons. African designers continue to celebrate the african spirit through the bright colours of the fabrics and prints and as well as the energy, life and harmony of their continent.

I wanted to share with you my top five african fashion brands so far and their glamorous designs. Of course I believe there are many others out there that are stylish, chic and unique too but these ones are my favourite for now. So if you know other african designers that you believe have amazing, good quality and unique designs, we'd appreciate if you would share your findings with us in the comment box below. 

Rise and Shine Africa!

ELECTION MADAME FRANCE 2017


Hola Lovelies,


Voilà c'est terminé et je peux vous en dire plus sur cette belle expérience que cela a été de participer à l'élection de MADAME FRANCE 2017 du 30 Avril dernier au MAS Paris. Ce Concours de l'élégance et de la beauté réunissait toutes les candidates de 28 à 39 ans et de 40 à 55 ans résidant en France. A l'issue de ce concours une seule candidate toutes catégories confondues (28-39 ans et 40-55 ans) devait être couronnée MADAME FRANCE 2017.



L'organisation de cet événement dans l'ensemble s'est bien passé mais comme beaucoup d'événements en général il y'a eu quelques retours négatifs de la part du public et même des candidates qui se plaignaient de la mauvaise organisation dans les coulisses et la gestion des candidates, du temps de l'événement, de quelques problèmes techniques etc. Dans l'ensemble ce n'était pas mal, les spectateurs ont pu quand même assister à un beau spectacle.










La gagnante de la catégorie 28-39 ans s'appelle Sabrina Dutranois ( 28 ans, 1,70m et 51 Kg) et MADAME FRANCE 2017 toutes catégories confondues est Tatiana Reiman (43 ans, 1,75m et 58 Kg). 





Je n'ai pas gagné cette fois-ci mais ce fut une belle expérience pour moi et un honneur d'avoir été sélectionnée pour participer à ce concours de l'élégance et de beauté. J'ai passé de très bons moments et surtout rencontrer des personnes intéressantes. On ne sort jamais perdante d'une expérience enrichissante comme celle-ci mais au contraire plus forte et plus confiante.

Je tiens à remercier ma famille et mes amis qui m'ont soutenu tout au long de ce concours, mais aussi le Comité d'organisation de Miss Nationale pour m'avoir donné cette belle opportunité de participer à MADAME FRANCE 2017 et enfin merci à Sunshine pour cette magnifique robe de soirée que j'ai porté, merci à tous nos maquilleurs et en particulier à Dilly Makeup, aux coiffeurs de CFA94, aux photographes Thierry Joly PhotographieBenjamin Remon de Infos-ReportagesGlobal Dream Production et à toute l'équipe de production.

DENIM SUNDAY AND YUMMY POP

Have you already been to Yummy Pop in Paris? I was shopping on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Le Marais, one of my favourite fashion spots in the city when I came across Yummy Pop, a beautiful shop located at 35 bis Rue du Roi de Sicile. I then heard that it was launched on 22nd October 2016 by the American actress Scarlett Johansson and French husband Romain Dauriac who have always wanted to bring in their favorite city in Europe their favourite American snack made with original flavours created by Chef Will Horowitz. 



The staff was busy when I came in and the shop smelled so good that I decided to give it a try. Usually I'm not a big fan of popcorn, I can make it at home or eat it now and then when I go to movies but it is usually the same taste, nothing special and fancy.



So I started to look at the menu and the different flavours they offer: Real Vermont Cheddar, Sea Salt and Olive Oil, Truffle, Parmesan, Sage, Real Vermont Maple, Strawberries and cream, Chocolate covered strawberries. I like my popcorn sweet not salty so I went for Real Vermont Maple in the small size.

                           




I wasn't disappointed when I ate my popcorn, it was warm, crispy and tasty. The size S was quite too big and it cost 7 Euros, it was worth it. I love the design of their bags too, so colorful and cute!








For those of you who are really fans of popcorn, now you can buy Yummy Pop shirts, caps and shopping bags also available in the store. Go pop till you drop!

Have you also been to Yummy Pop? Did you enjoy their popcorn? Let me know in the comment box below.
