Surprises from my girls

A late birthday gift

b1 1037x

So last weekend on Saturday 14/10 I had a crazy quite busy exciting day. First of all, I got to wake up very early because my friend Anna had organized a surprise wellness day for the 3 October babies aka godmothers (Cristina, Lia and I) of her son Alexander. Yes, I’m a godmother of cute baby boy. You can read all about this here.

Anyway, I had an amazing day at the wellness, verzorgingscentrum LEI Aalst. I had already been there with my other close friends Nikuze and Julie and I had always wanted to go back – best birthday gift ever! When we arrived, four baskets with a bathrobe and slippers were ready for us. Also tea and biscuits got served. It was so cozy! Because that was my second time going there I started comparing with the first time hahaha. And now ya’ll wanna know what my fave time was… :)

First we got a peeling and scrub of our feet. The hot water was just aaahhh-mazing! Then we got a massage: normal, hot stone – all our body! Even though I had a lot on my mind about the event I would have in the evening, I enjoyed it and fell asleep during the massage. Sweet hands, it was really good. 
After that we had a little time for the sauna and the Jacuzzi. We chatted about us, life, happiness, men, love … ! Thanks again Anna for everything! :) :) :) 

But that wasn’t aaaaalllll!!! Anna had also prepared a nice present at her home! For the ones that follow me on Snapchat (EyoSunny), you have seen it all! I was surprised. I knew that before going to my event I would have dinner (a very fast one!) at Annas and then leave. But when we arrived, HAFSA WAS THERE with her Polaroid camera and she was singing!!! What a surprise, I didn’t expect that, totally noooottt! It really made my day hahah! And how the room was decorated (autumn theme) and all! I even had my own birthday cake with EyoSunny on it – waawww! And that evening at the ‘Tell Your Story’ event I told the audience to be surrounded with GOOD PEOPLE! Well, I meanted it because my friends are the best! =) 

Unfortunately I stayed way too long at my party (or not) and I came late at the event ... :/
But more about it in my next post :)

A Weekend Trip to London - Part 2

on Tuesday, 17 October 2017. Posted in Trips and events

Eating and shopping in Oxford Street

l1 1037x

If you can't remember what Part 1 was all about, here you can read it. 

So after our non-breakfast morning (at LFWF) we went to OXFORD STREET for some shopping, but first food! This was at NANDO’S of course (after a long 15min of walk as lost tourists and asking random people where it was…). Our first time eating there, we don’t really had any expectations. We just wanted to eat good food! Sandra had a chicken hamburger with fries and drank fanta, Alice had pita chicken, drank water and I got a ¼ chicken with rice and drank coke. My portion was ok (my plate (or better, our plates) looked very empty ahhaha) – the chicken was AMAZING!!! The best chicken I’ve eaten in a restaurant I think, no joke! Argh now thinking about it, I want to go back only for the chicken – A good cooked CHICKEN IS LIFE!!! We had a nice time there, chatting about LFWF and in which shops we absolutely wanted to go to…. Cozy! After lunch we went shopping, yeaayyh!

First stop was The Body Shop. So we entered, been welcomed by nice ladies in black, explaining the 20 for 3 promotion; £20 for 3 products. We bought some creams for our friends and customized our packages. It was fun! I took the creams almond, strawberry and olive for my mum and sisters.
After that we went to Forever 21. I think we got out of the store for like 2 long hours later haahaha - that store is very interesting! But guess what, I only bought a t-shirt!! A nice mustard yellow t-shirt! I’m so picky I know but right now I’m sadly thinking about that gorgeous black skirt I didn’t buy hahah!
We also went to candy land aka American Candy, where the shopkeepers wanted to strike a pose with me ahahaha (see pictures). Anyway, I ended up buying myself a very needed charging adaptor and then we met up with Lorraine (@lorraine_kang). Lorraine, Alice and Sandra were friends since a young age but her move to England didn’t separate them. We met at the Topshop store, where a cool thing was going on: the mannequins in the decor were real and cat walking! We need such great ideas in BE, it was fun to watch! :)

We sat in a pub for an hour (charging my phone haha) and then we decide to go eat something. Hungry girls that didn’t really knew what they wanted to eat, stepped randomly into an Lebanese/Iraqi restaurant 'Al Dar' and got a nice table for four! We got served by a man that was doing everything to get Lorraines attention and number hahaha! We really had a nice time! A lot of hard laughs, good food, fun and good vibes! =D
That was our last night there.


The next day we also had to wake up very early to go to church, that was 2 hours way too far from the Airbnb (East Croydon). But we managed to arrive there! The service was nice and I was really happy to go to church somewhere in London and meet Reverend Ruth again.

In the overal, that weekend just didn’t go all perfect (struggling with the uncharged phone, Oyster transport card, Google Maps…) but I loved traveling to London! London is a very beautiful city, I was amazed by the beautiful clean train stops … I would like to go back and I will definitely do! Wondering which city I’ll be visiting next! :)

 Am VERY EXCITEEEEED !!!!! A lot of cool events are coming up and yowwww I can not wait ! :) I love this kind of season! This makes me think about and reflect on my first ever collaboration with Zalando last year – waaww still amazed! You may think that I am exaggerating but the smile on my face rightnow, … God is amazing! =D

 At this moment, I feel like I am more motivated, more interested about life (??) and damn I am inspired!!!! And trust me, you also will be because this coming Saturday 14/10 there is a great event: TELL YOUR STORY! Beautiful African women are invited by HISHI to inspire other young, talented, gorgeous, powerful (and all the other beautiful adjectives) women!
I am one of the invites for the panel and to be honest I am a little little little nervous. Comparing (what I should not) to the others I feel like I am not interesting enough for you but hey, POSITIVE ENERGY: I am one of a kind and I know that I am here in the world for a certain purpose. And Saturday, I will share my story that is enough for me and I really really hope that I can inspire you, to be a perfect SUNLIGHT, just enough as you are! Gossshhh I am so thankful! Just wanna thank you again Sandra (@afrospolitain) for your phone call that made me happy that day (you know)! Can’t wait to see you all on Saturday my beautiful Sunnies!

Je suis très EXCITEE!!!!! Beaucoup d'événements trop sympas arrivent et je ne peux pas attendre! :) J'adore ce genre de saison!

Vous pensez surement que j'exagère mais le sourire sur mon visage que j’ai là maintenant, ... Dieu est merveilleux ! =D

Et croyez-moi, vous aussi vous le serez parce que samedi prochain 14/10, il y a un événement: TELL YOUR STORY! De belles femmes africaines sont invitées par HISHI pour inspirer d'autres jeunes, talentueuses, magnifiques, puissantes (et toutes les autres belles adjectifs) femmes! Je suis l'une des invites pour raconter mon histoire et pour être honnête avec vous, je suis un tout petit peut nerveuse. En me comparant (ce que je ne devrais pas !) aux autres femmes invites, je ne me sens pas assez intéressante pour vous, mais bon POSITIVE ENERGY: je suis unique et je sais que je suis ici dans ce monde pour un certain but. Et samedi, je vais partager mon histoire qui me suffit et j'espère vraiment que je peux vous inspirer d’être un SOLEIL PARFAIT, juste ce que vous êtes! Gossshhh je suis tellement reconnaissante! Je veux juste encore te remercier Sandra (@afrospolitain) pour ton appel qui m'a fait plaisir ce jour-là (toi-même tu sais)! J'ai hâte de tous vous rencontrer samedi mes beautiful Sunnies!

A Weekend Trip To London - Part 1

on Thursday, 05 October 2017. Posted in Trips and events

London Fashion Week Festival

lo38

 Hey hey !! How is you doing ? :) As I mentioned on Instagram, two weekends ago (22-24/9) I was in London and this is the first part of the post about it. I don’t know how long this post will be but I will do my best to keep it pleasant (short) to read. :)

So basically (read this with your best British accent ever haha) my friend (Alice) and I decided last minute to go on a trip. Because of our busy schedules we managed to find a weekend that was ok for both of us. Her cousin Sandra also wanted to come so yeah why not? Train tickets booked, 2 more weeks to go, exciteeeed! :) 

D-day, Friday 22/9. We met at the train station after work. Is it necessary to mention that I almost missed my train … ? Well, you haven’t heard/read the worst yet hahahah …
Anyways, I met Sandra for the first time in the train! My first impression – a beautiful, sweet and intelligent  girl! She really is and she kind off was our Google Maps during the weekend! Thank you for everything hun! :)  Two hours long in the train chatting about our lives, our opinions, the underwater train, what we gonna do, how our Airbnb (host) will be,  … etc. We arrived around 2100 in London, Saint-Pancras.
When out of the train, all in smiles, I started vlogging. I didn’t have planned to vlog that’s why suddenly I started using my phone. Until we arrived at the Airbnb, wanted to charge the battery of my phone and realized that none of us had thought of bringing the British charger adaptor… Ohh well, there went the idea to vlog/snap everything of our weekend! I had my PC with me so I charged my phone with that and had just enough battery to film the next morning.

Saturday 23/9. LONDON FASHION WEEK FESTIVAL (LFWF) and SHOPPING!

That’s what we had planned to do that day. The LFWF (at 1030) was one hour away from our Airbnb so we had to wake up very early (around 700) for that and also just because we didn’t know exactly where it was hahaha. Thank God – Google Maps is the best!  We arrived on time, 945! Yes you haven’t read something about breakfast because until that time we haven’t had a proper breakfast! I drank coffee on the way though!

lo47
So arrived at the LFWF, I was happy and exciteeedd! I have always wanted to attend the LFW so with this opportunity to come to LFWF, I was happy and it was fine for me! I know that one day I will make it to the LFW, even the NFW, MFW and PFW (wwoow that’s huge what am saying here but yeah really I hope so, one day!). There was huuuge ligne at the entrance but we had a show earlier than 1200 so we could pass easily. Man I wish, I had vlogged! :)

We got in - friendly staff!! We had reserved seats at the front row and were all excited about what we would see. It started on time and I loved the simple outfit the host of the show had on! Then the show started! I had been to fashion shows before (here in Belgium) so this wasn’t my first. What for me the first time was (and still in shook), was attending THE SHORTEST FASHION SHOW EVER! Only one designer, like come on, where were all the rest? Still a beautiful one though but I mean, did I come straight from BE to L only for just one designer (Fyodor Golan)??!!! Anyway, the show was great and after that there were some activities in the building such as fashion stands, workshops, shops, etc. We received a designer bag (without goodies), all well organized! And some people were nicely dressed woauw, so much inspiration! :) What I loved the most about fashion in London is that a lot of people, most of them have their own style! Not everyone is walking around with the same Sam Smith / Nike sneaker or the same Zara clothing like I see a lot here in BE. We should all have our own style and dress properly!

After our non-breakfast morning we went to OXFORD STREET for some shopping, but first food! More about that (where we went for luch, what I bought, another person that became a friend, ...) in part two coming up soon :)
