CULOTTES AND SLIDES
By Liz Madowo on September 14, 2017
Hello good people?
It’s been too long, far far too long…I don’t know what happened, I didn’t even mean to pull a disappearing act on you guys but you know how life goes, right? Here’s why I’ve been away for this long
Not too long after my last post, 14 days later to be exact, I got on a plane headed to Paris (actually if we’re being technical, I got on a plane to Istanbul then connected to Paris). I was away for almost a month, in which time I went to France and Netherlands, all thanks to the Schengen visa that gives you access to 26 European countries including France, Germany, Netherlands, Greece and Italy. (I also passed through Brussels, Belgium on my way to Neth
I posted quite a bit, not enough according to some, on my socials about everywhere I went. Yes, Paris is really magical and Amsterdam is just as eccentric as you’d imagine. I’ll do a whole video about my experiences there, but it probably won’t be a vlog since I tried that and failed spectacularly…c’est la vie
My whole outfit is from Primark in Netherlands , except my top that’s from Kenya of course and my culottes that are from France, a store called Camaïeu (pronounced Camayo).
Being in France, I realized how those French classes I didn’t take would have come in clutch. It’s very hard to survive in France without knowing any French, this is how I ended up lost in Paris which is a story for another day (subscribe to my Youtube channel to know when all these France and Netherlands videos drop. It’ll be soon, Inshallah)
Thank you so much for reading. Bear with me as I get back into the groove of things, I hope the wait will be worth it.
