P U L L  U P: Morning ig fam. Diversity is a strength, not a threat ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 It’s amazing the support we’ve seen for #BlackLivesMatter over the last few days but let’s keep the momentum going. This is just the beginning. We’re not going to dismantle in a week, racism that has been in-built for decades and it’s going to take more than posting black squares on the feed. Let’s keep calling out BS where we see it. Here for @jackieaina ‘s call for brands to #pulluporshutup 🙌🏾 PS: I shared in my stories my example of a brand that needs to do better when it comes to matching up their actions with their words...

A sequel to my previous post.

Day 2: 

After a hefty French breakfast out on the town, I made no hesitation to hit the famous Nice beach. The seas were warm and blue, just the way I like it.

Neon bikini suit: Roxy

I practically spent all day at the beach on Day 2. But the next day I was ready for some Monte-Carlo sightseeing!

Monte-Carlo is the capital of Monaco which is small country just out of France. It’s mainly populated by yacht-owning business gurus and beautiful rides 🙂

Waiting for my driver…#iwish!

We went on a short boat tour…:)


IMG_9987 IMG_9999 IMG_9988 IMG_9997 IMG_9979 IMG_9978


I am usually afraid of the water because I don’t even know how to swim but by Day 3 I had gathered enough gusto to go on a boating parachute with Matt who claimed he wasn’t scared at all…

The ride was such an adrenaline rush! Especially as we went really far out and THEN got dipped into the Mediterranean. Oh lawd.

We stayed for a nice and refreshing dip after the thrilling ride.

Later that evening, Matt and I went for a nice walk around the Vieux Nice. The many shops and people give it a lot of character.

One thing I’ve learned from this trip? Pack less next time. I had a suitcase full of potential ‘dressed-to-kill’ outfits and shoes and never even wore them! It was just too blistering hot to bother wearing heels etc and I just ended up wearing my poor ole faithful flats EVERY SINGLE time. 

My hair was another story. Excuse it’s flatness/frizziness. There’s only so much blow-drying/straightening a girl can do when you’re in the water 24/7 🙁

The only time I dressed up was on the last day when we went out for a meal. I haven’t uploaded pictures of that day yet . I will upload a full post on the outfit details in my Outfit Diaries but here’s a sneak pic of the outfit.

IMG_0290 IMG_0292 IMG_0310

Whew! Finally there you have it. Most of the pictures from my short stay in Nice. I’d definitely go back there in a heartbeat.

The outfits were a bit too random for me to get into detail but if you have any queries please ask away 🙂

How are you spending your summer holidays and what is your dream vacay location?
