Disappointed!

Hi Y'all!
 I am inspired to blog again even though my camera is broken. I am using the one from my pad and my husband's until a good one falls on my lap.
  In the meantime, I want to tell you about an interesting thing that happened to me today. Yesterday I heard from a friend of mine that H&M was having great sales with prices starting from 100Y. So today I decided to check it out. I found some interesting pieces almost all from Summer but I was not inspired to purchase anything because it was all sheer and neon pink or something else. That was until I found two pair of cropped pants in pastel peach and coral. I checked the price tags and the peach one was 300Y and the coral one 700Y. I take both pants in my size and try them on. They fit perfectly for they are not too tight. Excited, I proceed to pay but before the lady at the counter starts, I open my mouth to ask her why there was a difference in price since it was the same product. She said that she was going to ask the manager about it. I wait, expecting the coral pants price to drop to 300Y which would have been such a great deal. Alas, she is back with bad news: telling me that the pants were not supposed to be on the sale racks as they are new items. She apologized for the mistake and ask me if I still want to purchase the pants. At that point I was so disappointed  but I feigned to ask the real price that I did not even registered before declining. I left the shop mad. Mad at the sales people for not doing their job, mad a myself for trying to be smart and opening my mouth. I condole myself by thinking that while she checked the pants, the real price would have appeared anyway as they are not sale items. Yet, something was still nagging me. I was having such a good day so far and that trip to H&M completely ruined my mood. I went later on to McDonald for some well deserved binge eating and ended up in G.U. where I bought turtle necks on sale. After all the day was not a total waste.
Have you ever had anything like that happened to you?
Anyway, here is what I wore:

 
Scarf - Night market in Langkawi, Malaysia
Cardigan - Walmart
Shirt - Thrifted
Pants - H&M
Shoes - random shoe store in Ishikawacho






Wearing these pants took great courage as they are bright red. They are also a bit tight but I am hoping that with more wears they will loosen up. I had the idea to wear them this way after several hours spent on Pinterest. I swear, I do not know how I dressed before Pinterest. It is so easy to get inspired (or steal a style) while browsing the site. Do you spend hours there like I do? If so, check me out at Odetofash.  I promised you won't be disappointed.

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…
