Jamais deux sans trois

Hello there!
 They say: "Things come in three". Well I had the proof today as I attended my third baby shower this year. The wives association from my husband's company wanted to host a baby shower for two expecting mothers since Spring. However both women had difficult pregnancies. So we decided to wait till they had delivered. Now, four months after the birth of their children,  we all gathered to celebrate them and it was a surprise.
Here is what I wore for the occasion:
Scarf - random 100 yen shop in Eon Honmoku
Sweater - Nissen online
Tank - Daiso
Blouse - G.U.
Pants - H&M
Shoes - gift from Hubby
Necklace - Joa accessory in Harwin Houston
I have been into blouses lately mainly because I realized that I do not have any at all. I do have button down shirts instead. So I decided to get some. Fortunately G.U. has a great collection that is super cheap. This one I am wearing was on sale for 999Y. I like the rust color and the fluidity of it. Plus it covers all the problem areas. And it is super big; the one I am wearing is a size L and not tight at all.

The necklace is normally longer but I wanted it to be chunckier so I layered it.

I am adding a tad of glitter with my sequined flats
The baby shower was great. We catered Indian food which was as usual heaven on earth, finger licking good. I ate way too much, laughed too much and drool too much on the cuteness that was the babies. I have been around so many cute babies lately that it is getting to me. I really do want to have a third child but I am not ready yet. Will I ever be? But more importantly will GOD grant me a baby daughter?

Some gift baskets I made for the Moms

The food: Onions and Potato Pakoras, Biryani, Chole with Roti but my favorite Malai Kofta was not pictured, pure decadence

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…
