Channeling Beyonce (or at least trying...) among other things

I was fooling around today, trying to recreate celebrity styles I like.  There are not many celebrities that inspire me when I dress because they are way too sexy and bold for my taste. However, I love Beyonce off style, off as in when she is not on stage or walking the red carpet. The woman knows how to do casual, without being shockingly exposed (like Rihanna).
So for today I had this outfit in mind.



 But I decided to change at the last minute because as much as I love this combo, I just did not feel like wearing it today. Then I went for this instead:



Hat - Perth Australia
Top - Gap
Skirt - H&M
Shoes - Report via Ross
Bag - Daiso
Bracelet - gifted

In reality I so wanted to reproduce the same exact look as this one. But I am lacking a pink top ( I am on the hunt for a fuchsia one) and a printed maxi skirt . But no worries, I just pulled two of my faves pieces together and voila. Easy, breezy for a wonderful day at the park.




I decided to take the kids to Yamashita park at the last minute (meaning at around 2PM). We were just there on Sunday but I promised them we would go back because they discovered that there was a jungle gym inside the Happy Lawson store next to the park.


The Jungle gym inside the Happy Lawson- There is a coffee shop where parents can relax while their kids play- No obligation to purchase anything at the shop

On our way to the park, I spotted a long line in front of this recently opened restaurant Eggs'n Things.


This is just a quarter of the line

 I have been wanting to try it out because I love eggs, plus it has a Hawaiian theme. But judging from the line I will have to wait until the hype dies down to go there. I will give it a couple of months and see how it goes. Japanese are well known for lining hours to eat at a good restaurant (or be the first to buy the latest video games, or the first to check a new hot spot). But that is just not me. I do not have the patience to wait in line for anything. I would rather stay at home and make a reservation if possible. And if not, I have the patience to wait until I am the last person ever to try a new restaurant (wait comfortably at home that is).

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…
