In full bloom

Today was one of those other great warm days you wished could last all year around. The sun was out, the sky was blue; not too hot, not cold at all. It was one those days, you would love spending out in a park, or baking under the sun on the seacoast. Or at least I would.
I did not have anything special, just the ordinary usual boring life of a housewife. But since it was a nice day, I wanted to look nice. So I decided to wear this:

White scarf - Walmart
Jacket - Shimamura
Wrap cardigan - Gap
White tee- Home's
Skirt - G.U.
Shoes -H&M

I bought this skirt on impulse over a month ago at G.U. (Uniqlo other brand). I have been looking for something as good as my favorite black maxi skirt from H&M. This skirt is right up the alley with the breezy air feel it gives me. Plus it is a full skirt unlike the black one. The only problem I have with it is that it is not floor length. But I am going to make it work anyway.

"Neon coral" (or Orange as the hubby said) flats and my grey leggings

Yeah! I am wearing a size S top. I am not overweight after all!

I was trying to get some Sakuras in the shot

Pastels being trendy this season, I hit it right on the spot with this mint green (?) skirt. However, I am thinking that pastels may not be my shade of colors. I have been thinking about colors a lot lately. I went so far as to even consider having my colors "done" by a specialist. Some of my friends did it and they are saying that it changed their lives. I should do it but I am wondering if I really need a stylist telling me what looks good on me or not. Call me backwards but I think that stylists are just for celebrities and famous people. Maybe I will find the courage to do it and be done with it. But in the meantime, I am thinking that vivid colors may be more my thing than pastels.
In any case this skirt is a keeper and so will others in shades of blue, coral, golden, or even printed...that come my way.

My fav beaded earrings for now. I think I got them from a friend.

I was trying to capture the movement of the skirt and ended up with this. Man! Being a model is hard!

Here I live you with beautiful flowers found in my neighborhood.

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…
