Easy, Breezy, Playtime

Konnichiwa!

Talk about a crazy week. I cannot wait for tomorrow to come, so that I can laze around all day at home doing nothing. Life as a Mother is pretty hectic, let me tell you...

Today my sons and I were invited to a kiddie bday party. Here is what I wore

Scarf - Joa
Safari jacket - Thrifted
White tee- Shimamura
Dress - Ross
Shoes - Ross
Earrings - H&M



I



I wanted to be breezy today and this dress was perfect for it. I do not know about you but I can live an entire life in this kind of dress. I just wish I had many mores. They are just too easy to style. Actually the idea for the styling came to me a while ago while I was on Pinterest. But I just came around to reproduce the look now. Check the original here.




My head wrap was also an inspiration from Pinterest , check it out here

I went out of the house wearing beaded sandals but came back to change into my wedges. I am getting tired of the comfort look with flats. I need me a bit of height and these babies get the job done without killing my feet. I still cannot believe that they are so comfy.
Summer vacations have officially began today. I have to start planning playdates, trips to the zoo, to the pool and what not. I need to get my kids entertained and I need to get my butt off the couch for once. But not tomorrow. Tomorrow, my butt is glued to it no matter what.

Tschuss!

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…
