Flowers today, showers tomorrow

I had a nice time this week end. I had some people over for lunch Sunday and we talked, ate and laughed a lot. I always say that I hate having people over because I am lazy to cook and clean (Cooking the Senegalese way takes forever by the way so you get my point). However I am always happy when they are here and wished they could stay more...

Anyway, it is getting hot so now I am pulling out all outfits that are comfy and light like this jumpsuit.

Scarf - Jerusalem Halal Meat
Tee - Shimamura
Jumpsuit - Shimamura
Shoes - $9.99 shoe store in Harwin
Bag - Daiso 100 Yen store

I always forget how comfy this jumpsuit is. It may not be the most flattering but truly when it comes to heat, I could not care less. If I could walk around naked I would. But since I cannot, this thing I am wearing is pretty much close. And I got this tee just last saturday. I realised that I only owned one white tee. I had to go get myself another one because white tee are what I need the most in Summer to wear underneath my non -sleeves tunics, dresses and jumpsuits. I got two at Shimamura and may go back to get two in black.

I snag this bag for 210 Yen at the Daiso last week. I wanted a nice bag that could hold my swimsuit and towel (I go swimming every week) and I found it. But it is so cute, I may use it daily. It is perfect for Summer, the beach, the park...Actually I just realised that I have a cuter looking weaved bag but it is so big and not comfy at all that I barely use.

It is going to rain a lot this week. So I can say that today may have been our last sun-shiny day for a while. I am not a big fan of the rain but I will have to deal with it until the heat comes......Not a fan of that either but I would rather be hot than cold.....

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 …

All dressed up to say goodbye to 2017!

2017 is coming to an end.

What a whilrwind this year has been! Everything I knew and valued has been shattered. Everything I ever wanted came true but with a huge price. Yet, I am hoping that it was for the best.

Scarf -taken from an Indian outfit Velvet shirt - (so old) gift from my Dad Pleated skirt -thrifted Leggings - India Shoes - Next Bag - Fair in India Ring - (so old) HM Pearl necklace - DIY  For one, I grew tremendously this past year. I started doing adult things, some things I never thought I would do or ever want to do again. But so is life. I lost a lot but I gained a lot as well. I learned every single day about life in general, love, family, work ethics, myself. I am getting to know who I am and what I am capable of. I know I am strong, I am resilient. I also know I am older (found out two gray hairs this year) and not as pretty as I used to be. But that is alright. I now think that it is okay to be selfish, to put myself first, to love myself before anyone else. I …
