Texas Shenanigans

Hi everyone,

Happy New year to all of you, this is my first post of the year 2018. I hope everybody is doing awesome. I could have posted on the blog weeks ago but I felt really lazy. For the holidays, I went to Austin in Texas, I was very excited thinking I was going to leave NYC weather to something better, I was so disappointed. The weather was terrible, it was freezing there I still can’t believe it. Unfortunately, I set my expectations to high. Anyway!! I am not going to keep talking about the sad and cold weather, it didn’t stop me from having a blast. I especially cherished the time I spent with my best friend because I really missed her. We took a bunch of pictures and did a lot of fun activities.

Regarding this post, I went to Dave&Busters with all my friends, we had dinner there and played all the games. I wanted to be stylish but still comfortable enough to do all the fun stuff there. I still looked cute tho’ lol. You can tell I really enjoyed myself looking at the pictures.

I’ll try to post some time at the end of this week. Muchos besos.

Winter is Here

Hi everyone,

I made some changes on my blog, I changed the theme and did some other stuff. I tried to make it easier to navigate, I hope you like it. I took these pictures last sunday but I had no time to post it. I had an exam and needed to study super hard. The finals are coming and I am going to be busy but it’s okay I am going to post again some time this week. I took the pictures after church. I really don’t have a specific style when it comes to church outfits. I already told you guys, my style depends of my mood. On that day , I felt like going back in time somewhere in the 80’s and I added my touch of modern. My coat is from Missguided, it’s actually very warm. I bought it last year tho’ so you might not be able to find it there but I am pretty sure you can find something similar on the same site. If not try asos.

Hi beautiful people,

I hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving. I am doing awesome! Thanksgiving was great, it was my first time cooking the turkey this year; it was actually pretty good, we ate the whole turkey the next day. It’s Monday, we are back at it again with work, school and for some lucky people they just stay home not doing anything with their life. My post today is random, I say random because it’s almost 8Pm and I am currently in class not paying attention (bad student). I wanted to post right now for no particular reason, I am pretty sure nobody post at this time. Anyway! I took the photos with my phone (btw I am not part of the iphone team anymore, I am so tired of the battery life of iphones, I decided it is time for a big change and I am happy with my choice I got the Google pixel 2, the picture quality is pretty dope) it was super windy that day but when it comes to fashion I am willing to risk it all lol!

A day Away

Hello everyone!

How is it going? I am doing great but I am still not done yet with my midterms, one more to go. Yesterday was such a beautiful saturday. I spend my day in Philadelphia. I have a great time every time I go there. I went to a french bakery in the morning, I got a Napoleon (mille-feuilles) that was delicious and went to Lord & Taylor just to hang out, I made a promise to myself, I won’t buy any more clothes until next year, so I had to close my eyes to a lot of stuff. It was a good therapy tho’. Then, lunch at Bahama Breeze with a dear one, after that I helped my “friend” get dressed for a Halloween party, he was going to and I headed back to NYC. Overall, my day was pretty chill.

I wanted to be comfortable and wear something bright so I opted for this royal blue sweater from H&M and jeans. My style is pretty simple I always mix casual chic and elegant. Anybody can create the same style. Always be confident in everything you wear and VOILA!!


 

Salut tout le monde,

Comment allez vous? Moi je vais très bien, mais je n’ai pas encore terminé mes examens, un de plus à faire. Hier, le temps etait magnifique. J’ai passe ma journée à Philadelphie et chaque fois que j’y vais, je passe un bon moment. Donc, je suis allée à une boulangerie française le matin, j’ai pris un Napoléon (mille-feuilles) qui était délicieux et j’ai fait un tour à Lord & Taylor juste pour sortir, je me suis faite une promesse, je n’achèterai plus de vêtements jusqu’à l’année prochaine; donc j’ai dû fermer les yeux sur beaucoup de choses. C’était une bonne thérapie. Ensuite, j’ai déjeuné à Bahama Breeze avec un être cher, après que j’ai aidé mon «ami» à s’appreter pour une fête d’Halloween et je suis retournée à New York. Au final, ma journée était plutôt cool.

En ce qui concerne mon style du jour, Je voulais être confortable et porter quelque chose de coloré alors j’ai opté pour ce pull bleu royal de H&M et jeans. Mon style est assez simple, je mélange toujours decontracté, chic et élégant. Tout le monde peut créer le même style. Soyez toujours confiant dans tout ce que vous portez et VOILA !!

Black Is Beautiful

Hi guys!!

I hope you are all having a beautiful day. I am happy to be introduced into Mo”Papers as a contributor for the fashion and beauty section of the magazine. I will also be sharing my post on the page and I am very excited to be part of it. Basically the magazine is about everything, it will talk about every single topic, politics, fashion, sports, entertainment, you name it but it will be focused on up and coming people in all domains and especially third world’s country culture. (instagram: @mo.papers)

My life right now in one word, hectic! I have been missing in action recently because I am very busy with school, I have my midterms going on, I study a lot right now and don’t enjoy life much but I believe there is a time for everything. My post today is beauty related and I am excited to share these photos here. About a week ago, I did a cosmetic photoshoot; it was my first time doing a professional photoshoot for a brand “Right Shades Beauty” created by two certified and professional make-up artists. They sell different products. They have different shades of matte liquid lipstick named after several cities in Africa, I am representing The Ivory Coast and the shade I am wearing is Abidjan. 


Coucou à tous,

J’espère que vous passez tous une belle journée. Je suis heureuse d’être présentée dans Mo”Papers en tant que collaboratrice pour la section mode et beauté du magazine. Je vais aussi partager mes posts sur la page et je suis très heureuse d’en faire partie. En gros, le magazine parle de tout, il parlera de tous les sujets, politique, mode, sports, divertissement et j’en passe. Il sera axé sur les gens dans tous les domaines et en particulier la culture du tiers monde. (instagram: @mo.papers)

J’espère que vous passez une excellente journée. Je n’étais pas très active ces derniers temps parce-que j’étais très occupé avec l’école, j’ai mes examens de mi-session donc je suis plongée dans mes livres et ne profites pas assez de la vie mais ce n’est pas bien grave, il y a un temps pour tout. Mon poste de ce jour est lié à la beauté et je suis ravie de partager ces photos ici. Il ya environ une semaine j’ai fait un photoshoot professionnel pour une marque “Right Shades Beauty” créée par deux maquilleuses professionnelles et certifiées. Elles vendent différents produits. Le produit présent dans ce shoot est le rouge à lèvres. Il ya différentes nuances de rouge à lèvres liquide mat nommé après plusieurs villes en Afrique; je représente la Côte d’Ivoire et l’ombre que je porte est Abidjan.

Hello Everyone,

Summer is over, I am very excited because Fall is here, it’s my favorite season but right now the weather is still nice in New York, we can still feel summer. My post today is from my trip in Los Angeles in August. I never have enough time to post or even take pictures so I’m just putting this set of vacation photos here for now. On that day in LA, it was the day of the eclipse. After trying my first In-n-Out burger that was delicious, my friend and I went to Skyspace, the outdoor deck has a beautiful view of the city and we also did the slide. I thought it was going to be scary but not at all, it was a pretty quick slide. Then I wanted to see the Hollywood sign so we went there and we finished our visit on Hollywood Boulevard because I wanted to see the stars and Madame Tussaud wax museum. It was a fun day !! 🙂

What’s up guys? Summer is over, school has started again, I am back in New York and back to my regular life. I had the time of my life when I took the week off and went on vacation. I always planned on visiting LA but never got the chance to do so but I finally did it :). I went there last week, it was great!! I visited so many places; the day I took these photos, my friend and I had brunch at this place called “The roof on Wilshire” the food was delicious and the view was beautiful. After that we headed to Santa Monica beach (I took some nice pictures there unfortunately I never post any pictures of me in bikinis on social media so sorry :P). Later that day, we went hiking and watch the sun set. the scenic view on top of the mountain was breathtaking. I’ll try to post some pictures of the view in my gallery when I have time so you guys can take a look.

Bonjour

Quoi de neuf? L’été est terminé, l’école a recommencé, j’ai repris mon style de vie et je suis de retour à New York. J’ai pris une semaine de vacances et je me suis amusee comme une folle. J’avais toujours prévu de visiter LA mais je n’avais jamais eu la chance de le faire, mais je l’ai finalement fait cet ete :). Je suis allée la semaine dernière, c’était génial !! J’ai visité tant d’endroits. Le jour où j’ai pris ces photos, ma pote et moi avions pris un brunch à ce rooftop appelé «Le toit de Wilshire», la nourriture était délicieuse et la vue était magnifique. Après cela, nous nous sommes dirigés vers la plage de Santa Monica (j’ai pris de belles images là-bas, malheureusement, je ne publie jamais de photos de moi en bikinis sur les médias sociaux .. désolé). Plus tard ce jour-là, nous sommes allés faire de la randonnée et regarder le coucher du soleil. La vue panoramique sur la montagne était à couper le souffle. J’essaierai de publier quelques photos de la vue dans ma galerie quand j’aurai le temps afin que vous puissiez regarder.

Sur ce passez un excellent weekend, xoxo

A Far Off Distance

Hi guys,

I got one post for you today. I am trying to post more as you can see; slowly but surely I am getting there. I took these pictures on Sunday after church. I got a lot of compliments on my shoes. It was my first time wearing them, I had them all day and they are very comfortable unfortunately I bought them when I was still working at Zara a year ago so they don’t have it anymore. I am pretty sure you can find something similar. You can also find the pleated skirt anywhere. Right now, Zara has the same skirt but in green, you can also check out Asos; this skirt is very easy to style you can try it with sandals, sneakers, mules whatever will match your own personality and style…

Du Bleu ou du Blue

Hi peeps,

I hope you are having a great summer. I am doing good and I’m enjoying my summer; a week ago I went with two of my friends to see the Niagara Falls, it was spectacular even at night. I will try to post some pictures later in my gallery so you guys can see. For this post, I did the photoshoot right after church this Sunday, I was wearing different shades of blue even my shoes but you won’t be able to see the shoes I wore because I changed it for my sandals to feel comfortable but since I never posted them you will get to see it another time.

 

Coucou tout le monde,

J’espere que vous passe de belles vacances. Je me porte bien et je profite comme je peux de mes vacances; il ya une semaine, Je suis allee voir les chuttes du Niagara, c’etait spectaculaire meme pendant la nuit. Je vais essayer de poster quelques photos plutard dans ma gallery pourque vous que vous puissiez voir. Pour ce post, J’ai la seance photo juste apre l’eglise, je portais differentes nuances de bleues meme mes chaussures etaient blue mais vous ne les verrez pas dans ce post parceque je les ai change pour etre confortable et vu que je ne les ai jamais poste auparavant vous aurez l’occasion de les revoir une prochaine fois.

Orange is the new Black

 

Hello everyone,

It’s finally summer, we can now feel it in New York, I am so excited. I am doing good and I hope you guys are doing the same or even better. I wish I can take more pictures and be more present for the blog but I really can’t. I have absolutely no time, I try my best to post here and there when I can. So yesterday I had my favorite burger at this place called Harlem shake, it’s right here in my neighborhood and the best burger I tasted so far in NYC. I was wearing this orange summer dress that was so comfortable and perfect for the weather, I got a lot of compliments on it 🙂

Concerning my personal life, I am trying to be less selfish because life is not only about the “self” but others. I am trying to work on humility because it is not my strongest quality and I think that is something everybody should work on. To be humble is to know what your place is nothing more, nothing less than what you are. I am trying to be a better person, a selfless human being always willing to serve and help other people.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.
