It is raining, it is chilly, and I found this in my closet

Remember when I cured my obsession of jumpsuits by by buying three in a row. Well I ended up giving  one away, and wearing the two others only twice.
Today I am wearing the one I like the most.

Scarf - gifted
Jumpsuit - Shimamura
Shoes - Bonita
Hoop earrings - H&M
Beaded bracelet - can't remember
Ring - can't remember

My new fave pose

Had this scarf since 1999, the last thing I received before boarding the plane to Japan (except hugs and kisses)

Do you have things in your closet that...

you love but can't remember where you got them? It is the case with the last two accessories

And I was happy to discover that even though I gained weight, it still fitted me. (That is why I always buy clothes a size bigger. I know I am prone to gain weight. Besides, I do not like tight clothes). Another thing I discover about the jumpsuit is that its color is grey or non-color like they say in Japan. When I bought it I thought it was dark green. I guess it was due to the lighting of the store. I am a bit disappointed but I still like it. It is so comfortable, it is like I am walking naked. (No strike that, I would not feel comfortable walking naked). It is like I am wearing sweats, which I do when I sleep.
Now, the question I ask myself is why if the jjumpsuit is so comfy, I only wore it twice since I bought it back in September 2010. I have no answer but plenty of excuses I will not bore you with. I just hope, I will get to wear it more in the following months before Winter.

A la Camerounaise

Remember when I said that I was never going to change my style, because I like what I like (which is to be comfortable)?

Well I lied! My style is slowly changing. As my love life is in shambles at the moment ( I will get to that in a future post, I promise), I feel the need to go for a drastic change. I have contemplated the idea of cutting my hair (been there, done that!), dying it blond/ red or just forget this Hijabi thing all together. But as always, it is in the clothing department that I get to transform myself.

Truth be told, I am sure that even when things were perfectly normal at home, I would still go with a style change. The reason being that I am influenced at work. Women at my job are very simple and casual but they can turn the heat up from time to time. My favorite day is Friday when almost every one get to dress up in Traditional Attire. As someone who does not have many traditional attires, I am amazed at all the designs and styles out there. My eyes are feasting and …

When after work turns into a Fashion shoot

I went to my first "After work" the other day. For those who do not know what that is, "After work" is when colleagues get together for drinks or diner after work. Oups! I forgot to tell you! I started working for an international aid agency recently. I finally found myself a job that I also happen to like. Praise the Lord! I have been working for the last few months. It is challenging but I get to learn so many new things. And the best part are the people I get to work with particulalry the ladies. I enjoy them, every single one of them for they all have interesting personalities. They are also hilarious. I spend my days laughing. And I could not be more grateful to God for that!
Since two of my co workers were leaving (sad part of my job: people do not tend to work there for a long time), we decided to surprise them with an "After work"/ farewell party. We went to Marina Bay, which is a seaside hotel with a fabulous pool located in a hip area called …

Ramadan Lethargy

Hello dears.

How are you?

And for those fasting, how is your Ramadan so far?

We are in the last week of Ramadan and I am feeling great. I cannot complain.
However I could not help but notice a certain lethargy that has engulfed the town and the people living in it. since the beginning of Ramadan. For starters people go to work later than usual because they are still trying to catch some sleep between the time they eat and pray in the morning and the time they go to work. It is harder particularly for women who wake up early to cook something for their families. Even when you get organized and cook something the night before going to bed, you still have to get up earlier to heat it up. And most women I know are not content on cooking something simple, like ordinary breakfast. They want to make elaborate meals that would please their families. They feel the pressure more than anybody else, and they sleep also less.
This lack of sleep can have some serious consequences on the body and the m…
