Electrafrique

ElectrafriqueA while ago, Youma and I went to an edition of Electrafrique organized by OkayAfrica and KAANI. I wanted to see what the party would be like and if I’d like it. Sure, I wanted to connect with Dakar’s creative scene, and see what Electrafrique would be like. I wanted to see what kind of music it would be and if it would be my style. Of course, I also came to get shots, have fun and create. Let’s get into Electrafrique! (more…)

Eating at Pergola in Dakar

Pergola - February 2018First of all, HAPPY EASTER! Last time, I took you with me to the diverse Kabylie. Today, we are eating at Pergola in Dakar. The first time I went to Pergola was during my internship in 2015. Another intern at the time invited me to eat at Pergola, because her aunt and uncle run the place. From then on, we went more regularly. On Wednesdays, the restaurant offers the dish Méchoui. Since I’m back at Tigo, we usually go on Wednesday’s. Therefore, I really want to share with you our lunch at Pergola. Let’s get into the food!

Getting a Relaxer

getting a relaxer - MamaIn this post, we will talk about relaxing hair and getting a getting a relaxer - sigarelaxer. I wanted to show you how to relax hair. Now, wait a minute.. I am not going to show you how I relax my hair or how I relax someone else’s hair. Because first of all, I am natural and I like having tightly-coiled hair :). Secondly, I have no desire to relax someone’s hair for the sake of a blog post. However, my cousin wanted to get a relaxer, and asked me join her. Of course, I was down. I have seen my cousins getting a relaxer many times before, and I enjoy watching the process.

Superwomen Leadership Conference 2018 by JEADER

Last weekend, I went to the Superwomen Leadership Conference 2018 organized by JEADER, which stands for Jeunes Entrepreneurs Africains + Leader. The Conference was at Novotel next to Ibis in downtown Dakar. It was my first time attending an event that focused on (super)women in Senegal. In addition, I heard that certain superwomen from Wakanda would be present. Which meant that I definitely wanted to attend. Obviously, it is pretty inspiring to attend an event for women. I have been to many events in my life, but they always give me a new source of energy. Some would claim it could be motivation, but I’d rather call it Vibranium mixed with #BlackGirlMagic. Read further if you want me to transmit some of the Vibranium and #BlackGirlMagic!  (more…)
