Lyvv launch at Lulu Home Interior & Café

As you know, I am a Brand Ambassador for Lyvv cosmetics. Last week, Victorine Sarr from Lyvv asked me if I was interested in taking pictures and producing an IGTV video for the Lyvv launch at Lulu Home Interior & Café in Dakar. The Lyvv launch was last Saturday, and it was amazing! I was really in my element and was able to take so many pictures of truly beautiful ladies! Not only that, but I was also able to exchange with some fellow bloggers and Youtubers! Let’s get into this cool launch at Lulu.

Expo: Icônes by Vincent Bloch

Today, I want to share with you something really cool I did! I went to see Icônes by Vincent Bloch. He had his expo at Goethe Institut here in Dakar, and asked me to come. Of course, I was excited to go and wanted to bring you along. Icônes is all about futuristic female African icones. He looks at the women of tomorrow whom he has redrawn by using edited digital images. I definitely loved seeing it, and use Vincent’s creations to make something of my own.  Let’s go through Icônes by Vincent Bloch!

Korité in Podor

May was the beginning of Ramadan and the most part of Senegal was fasting. For a whole month, Muslims all over the world were fasting. And at the end of Ramadan, the same Muslims were celebrating Eid. In Senegal, Eid is called Korité. It is the first day after 29 or 30 days of fasting that Muslims are not permitted to fast.

Of course, I also came to get shots, have fun and create. Let’s get into Electrafrique! (more…)
