Vanity

I think that every fashion blogger is vain. You have to be if you take pictures of yourself and post them on the net for the world to see. I am thinking that I am as vain as the next blogger. But I am not the vainest. Actually I think the vainest of all are people who blog, post all kinds of pictures on Facebook and have Twitter accounts to talk about it. So I am not at that level yet because I do not post (many) pics of myself on Facebook and I do not even have a twitter account.

But let us get back to me. Here are the vain pictures of today (or last week)


 
Beret- Cial (it is studded by the way)
Faux leather jacket - Shimamura
Sweater - Forever 21
Turtle neck - G.U.
Bag - Thrifted
Skirt - Nissen online (it is dotted inside)
Boots - Shimamura
RIng - (barely seen) H&M
 
Last week, we had lunch with the mothers of the baby group I used to run. One of them was leaving and we all decided to have a Sayonara (goodbye) lunch for her and her daughter at an Italian restaurant in town. I wanted to look nice but still stay casual. I got inspired by the daughter of the lady who is leaving. Her daughter is four soon and very fierce. Her mother lets her choose her own outfit and everyday it is a delight to see her. One day she wears her princess oufit, the next she wears hello kitty headband. I decided to wear this tulle skirt I had since last Spring just in case she decided to be a ballerina and wear a tutu. But she came as a bunny. Anyway I had fun at the group and later on at the lunch.
I am going to miss my friend for she is such a sweet and fun person to be around. But I do wish her the best in moving forward...

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…
