Heavy Rotation challenge : Week 2

So this is week two of my challenge. I am keeping it up although I have already failed last Saturday by wearing something that was not included in the challenge. I am so bad at this but ppersistence is the key. So here is Week 2 in pictures

Day 9: Sept 5
Black cap + Oversize tee + Red orange jeans + Aztec sandals + Tan clutch

I was so exhausted on Monday. I woke up thinking that it would rain so I wore this. It was Sunshine all and all of sudden it started pouring when I came back from my son's school and I did not have an umbrella on hand. I had to hide in empty covered parking lot with a friend of mine. But thankfully the rain did not last. This Typhoon number 12 is really killing me here.
I did not have time to take a pic, but my outfit looked like this minus the scarf and the bag.

Day 10: Sept 6
Beige scarf + Studded top + Red orange pants + Gladiator sandals + Basket bag

I had lunch with an old classmate today. We went to eat Sweets in Vivre Yokohama and window shop before I rushed back home. I wanted to keep my outfit casual but fun. Absolutely love the top and the jeans. I have to get the same pair but in another color like blue or green. They are so comfy.

Day 11: Sept 7
White scarf +White top + Stripped dress + Aztec sandals + Sequin bag

It was such a nice day today but a minute outside and I was sweating. Thank GOD my outfit was light and super comfy. It almost look and feel like a pyjama reason why I wanted to belt it. However, since I was holding my baby with my Ergo bag, there was no space for a belt. Next time!

Day 12: Sept 8
Beige scarf + Crocheted top + African print skirt + leggings + gladiator sandals + Sequin bag

This outfit look fab in my mind but I started to hate it as soon as I wore it. The crocheted top does not go well with the skirt. And paired with the leggings and the shoes, I feel like a clown (do not ask me why). A total miss..I am seriously thinking that this crocheted top cannot be styled. Moreover, all my accessories get tangled in it.

Day 13: Sept 9
Straw hat + Studded top + Striped dress + beaded sandals + Sequin bag

I like this outfit but as I was walking I realised that I was this close to commit a wardrobe malfunction. The striped dress is very open at the arms but since I had another top on, I did not think that I needed to wear it with a tank top underneath it. However, the sleeves of the top being Bat sleeves, they also give a pretty view of my sides. Therefore, I am sure that I flashed some people on the streets (mind you, I was wearing a bra). This two items shall never be paired again....(unless with a tee or tank top underneath it!!!)

Day 14: Sept 10

I went to run errands today so I had to be comfy. I always wanted to pair these two items but I was worried that it would be too flashy (the top having some red stripes and the bottom being bright red orange). But it works. This will be a redo until the end of my Summer.

This challenge is a bit tiring because I get bored easily. However, it does make my life easier. I will talk about all the things I learned during the challenge at the end of Week 4.

See you for Week 3.

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…
