Messy Side Bun

Hello there!
School started again for my little bambinos, which means that my crazy mommy routine started again. You know the one I am talking about: waking up early, prepare lunch, prepare breakfast, wake up the kids, force feed them, shower them, make them wear their clothes and dash to take the bus on time. Fun, right? Anyway, as it is still hot and I do not have much time in the morning to play dress up,  I go for easy to wear, easy to style piece like this jumpsuit I got a while ago.

Here is what I wore:
Scarf - Langkawi night market
Tee - Shimamura
Jumpsuit - Shimamura
Bag - random shop in Takeshita Dori, Harajuku
Shoes - Forever 21
Accessories - H&M, Bazaar in Istanbul and gifted

If you have been reading me for a while, you know that back in 2010, I purchased three jumpsuits three weeks in a row. I decided to part with the polka dotted one because I just could not style it. I sent it home to be sold but regretted it months later when the polka dots trend was in full force. Fortunately for me, no one wanted to purchase the jumpsuit so I recovered it when I went back home last month. The plan was to turn it into some pants and a top. But after thinking I realized that the thing was better off left alone. So here I am wearing it for the 1st time to take my kids school. 

I would have to say that the jumpsuit was very easy breezy. I did not feel the heat that much even if I walked miles and went grocery shopping later that day. I even got compliments on it. The styling was really easy as I paired it with a white tee, the same sandals I had been rocking since I came back to Japan and a scarf I decided to wrap like a messy side bun.  Some friends of mine even joked that next time I should wear the jumpsuit without the tee to make it sexy. I laughed at the idea. But really, I cannot wait for temperatures to drop so I can wear the jumpsuit but this time with a denim shirt....

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…
