The other day my co-worker and I were taking a walk on our lunch break, and while on our walk we ran into a small African shop and I was very interested in seeing what was being sold, since it was very random.
To my astonishment they had a lot of goodies such as African dresses, shirts, black soap, accessories, etc… and for a very good prices.
First thing that caught my eye was African head wraps. I had seen many before but I had never seen ones I loved, or the sizes that I wanted and for a fair price, So you can imagine my excitement, and Lunch walk turned into shopping and my co-worker took few photos that I adored and thought I’d share(photos below).
Stay blessed darlings, bisou 🙂

Back in the day cute little young innocent with little knowledge of this world My uncle once told me “death is like the birth of a new child to those who believe in God and heaven. Because when a loved one passes away, the ones left behind mourn with great sadness, while heaven rejoice to welcome home a new member, Just as when a new baby is born is welcomed by great joy. Meaning the pain the mother goes through while in labor, is as the emotional pain we go through when our loved ones is about to depart from us. and then the joy of the new-born baby is same as the heavens rejoicing to welcome a new angel home.”
Now as a grown woman relating back to what He said, I really never understood it till recently and some what I am still struggling to accept it. Loosing my mother at delicate age (9years) was the most hardest thing any one can handle, and I always prayed to at least keep my father around. It didn’t take long and my worse fear became a reality.
At times I find myself keep trying to figure out if God loved me so much, why would he take the most precious and much needed piece of my life? not take one but both of my parent? then other times I inquired if my life and my siblings lives would be like if our parents were still around, or at least one of them?! although these questions might never get an answer, I’ve learned to cope and with God on my side I have faced many storms and rain but I’ve made it through.
Marvin Sapp said in his song” Experienced lost at a major cost, but I never lost faith in you(Lord), I’ve got some scars, but I’m still alive in spite of calamity. so if you see me cry, its just a sign that I’m still alive.”
With all that said and done, I’m grateful for God’s blessings upon my life. The scars and pain of my loss will be part of my life forever, but deep down I know there is someone out there who have had or still is having it harder/worse than me, there for I’m indebted and have faith that God only knows why and with that God will comfort me and keep me grounded and show me the way to move forward, in which I think I’m doing pretty decent (at least I hope I am:)) and hoping that my parent are looking down and proud of the woman I’ve matured to be, and I love that people always say how I look just like my mother and have her personality as well as Dad’s hard-working skills and loving life and mostly Tall like him.
RIP Mommy and Daddy, you are greatly missed and in me you will live forever. 🙂
I have a serious obsession with Mifa creation dresses and as I previously posted about one of my favorite pieces from her, I went and got more!
I love her use of lace material and color-blocking which give the pieces a feminine touch also still have the African style to outfits with an exquisite curve hugging way.
expectedly, I had to share two of the looks that I love and hope you will love them also.
1st look is off shoulder black and pink lace, I wore for Korite in Senegal.
2nd look is a wheat brown and orange floral dress, I wore at a friend’s wedding
Stay blessed, bisou 🙂
People always ask me how to I pick my outfits, and to be honest it all depends on my mood for the day. I do not have a specific way or reasons to pick my daily look unless it is a special event.
Today I woke up feeling blissful and bold for some reason and to match my mood, I chose my favorite Bebe print wide leg pants. Per usual, I had to share the look with you all and hope you will love it just as much as I did.

Stay Blessed, Bisou 🙂
I hope the summer is treating everyone well.
As for my summer so far, it has been fateful and plenty to discover.
During my discovery I came across an amazing African designer called Mimi with her line named Mifa Creation.
Her work is repleted with color blocking sequence and lace that makes the outfits feminine, dainty and dashing.
I had the pleasure to get few dresses, but one in particular caught my attention immediately and I had to have it. The blend of green and orange in this off shoulder lace dress was just exquisite, with simplicity yet chic, and as usual I had to share one of my favorite dress.
Stay blessed, Bisou 🙂
I had a privilege to be part of Pan-African Association’s 2nd annual fashion without borders event as a model for the Akese Style Line, which I have worked with the designer many times in different fashion shows. The gala was held at the Ivy room in Chicago with an amazing silent auction to raise money for the association that help refugees in the Chicago area resettle and great ambiance. The event was truly a humbling experience and an honor. I thought I’d share some of my favorite pictures from the event with my fabulous gown and cape.
Stay blessed, Bisou 🙂
