Mustard Snow

Do you like Snow?
I do like snow. But only if I can watch it fall, sitting inside a warm and cozy house seeping hot chocolate. You will never see me ski (although I did enjoy skating three times in my life already), you will never see me have snow fights let along build snowmen.
Imagine then my excitement at yesterday's snow. I woke up and it was all white outside. My son said it was Christmas (for him snow equals Christmas). If I could I would not have gone out. But duty called so I bundled up and braced the weather. It was freezing cold outside and heavy snow kept falling on my umbrella. It was so slippery down the hill that I was afraid I would fall and break my neck or worse break my son's neck who was resting on my back. Kids were enjoying the snow, throwing snow balls at each other or gliding. I thought they were just crazy.

Today is slightly better. No snow for starters and it is probably going to be warmer. That is why I decided to wear this:

Knitted hat - (You should be familiar with it by now)
Grandma wrap around cardigan - Thrifted
Dress - Dots
Mustard tights - Shimamura
Boots - Shimamura

I wanted mustard tights for a long time and could not resist them when I saw them on the rack sales of Shimamura. I had them for a while but never dare to break them. They can be pretty daunting. I like the fact that they are opaque and that they can brighten up a dark winter outfit.

However the reviews are mixed. So far my husband does not like them but my son's teacher does. Truth be told, I really do not care. I think I like them and that is all that matter.

Enjoy the melting snow!

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…
