Happy Easter you guyz, Hope everybody is having a fabulous time with their loved ones:) So one of my fav’ thing from America and that I missed dearly was cupcake so when I found out that photographer Gogo Sy had a side business as a cupcake entrepreneur I couldn’t wait to try. I called 2 days in advance and decided to try with the hubby just 4 cupcakes, chose vanilla & chocolate flavors. She was really nice on the phone and yesterday she delivered my guilty pleasure.First of all I was happy to see a young sista doing her thing and doing a fun thing and I was even more excited when she told me that she would be opening up a cupcake store very soon , just can’t wait. So my fav’ was this vanilla cupcake filled with jelly inside, it was moist and the cream was on point.

Chocolat, chocolat, it’s good to know that fine chocolate is being produced in Mama Africa.While serving as peace corpes volunteers,Tim McCollum and Brett Beach fell in love with the beautiful island of Madagascar & its production of cocoa. They wondered why since over 60 percent of  the world production of cocoa is being produced in Africa, how come  there were not many fine chocolate being made in Africa so they jumped on that idea & Madecasse chocolate was born.  The cool thing is that this business brings jobs to Malgachi people indeed they harvest, they cultivate the cocoa and even the packaging is made in Madagascar. Madecasse offers 8 types of eating chocolate like pink pepper & citrus chocolate,cinamon & sakay chocolate, sea salt & nibs chocolate and of course your good old milk chocolate. Apart from the eating chocolate they also sell baking chocolate and vanilla products. Check them

Hi you guyz, I hope you had a wonderful day:) I’ve been meaning to share with you guyz my thoughts about this beautiful Nigerian movie starting Nse Ikpe Etim and Joseph Benjamin and directed by Ikechukwu Oyeka . It’s about this couple that’s going through a very rough patch, the husband wants out ,the wife wants to work it out but doesn’t know what to do.But with the help of God, her lawyer she finds a way to gain his love and respect back.I enjoyed this movie because it could happen to all of us, sometimes love is not enough or as a couple you go through ups and downs but the point is not to give up.We’re the fast food generation if we don’t like it, we’re out,  we tend to take decisions quickly when it comes down to love.Pride is our main motor most of the times…so I

Hey you guys so I’ve been looking online for videos describing the journey of young people who went to Mecca for pilgrimage.I don’t know if that I’m not lucky but I couldn’t find videos that really touched me until I found this video of this loving African American couple travelling from Kansas City to Mecca & Medina. I spent an entire hour following th their journey, I felt their tears, their joy at being in the Holly city . I’m striving to get to that spiritual level where I can really appreciate such a trip & I hope to one day accomplish this duty with my husband InchAllah! Here’s the video enjoy: A big thank you to that couple as well , thanks for inspiring me and probably so many others:) Yaye
