Xmas lunch and wardrobe planning

Hey Y'all. Let me tell you about the fantastic day I had:
I had an early Xmas lunch with some friends at a nice hotel restaurant in Minato Mirai. The place is called Sirius and is located on the 70th floor of Landmark Tower (the tallest building in Minato Mirai).

Here is what I wore:
 
Scarf - Walmart
Fur vest - Thrifted
Jacket - random store in Nandemon, South Korea
Dress - G.U.
Top - Walmart
Pants - A'Gaci
Shoes - Shimamura
Bag - I world
Necklace - gifted

I felt like wearing all black today. But I just could not. I had to blend with grey. I wanted to look elegant, and I think black and grey are simple colors that could have made me pull it off. However, it just did not feel elegant enough. I guess it is because of the boots or the length of the vest. I am thinking that my other Suede wedge boots would have looked better. But it was going to take me forever to put them on this morning, and I was running late. So I settled for my motorcycle boots which are easier to wear.

The lunch was great. It was a buffet so there was lots of choice but I did not stuff myself. I had a potluck lunch yesterday that I am still trying to recover from. However, the view was to die for. I really enjoyed the decor of the restaurant.

Before heading to the lunch, I took a class on Wardrobe planning. The instructor was the lady who was "doing" almost everyone's color at school last year. I learned a lot from the class even though I had to rush out of there to be in time for the lunch. I am thinking that I may use the tips she gave me to try and clean my closet. It is getting too out of control lately. It has been a while since I bought something for myself ( more than a month) but yet I feel like there are too many things that I probably need to get rid of before I go shopping. Winter cleaning, anyone?

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…
