Today was a beautiful day even though it was chilly. I do not mind the chill as long as the sun is out. I had my monthly lunch with my friend Angie. We ate at a buffet in World Porters, which I regretted because I ate way too much. I really should start dieting...
Here is what I wore:
Beret - can't remember
Coat - too old and falling apart
Infinity scarf - random Import store in Ishikawacho
Knit - Gap
Cargo pants - Shimamura
Shoes - Shimamura
Accessories - gifted and bought at random 300 yen store in World Porters


For some reasons, I decided to stack my arms today with random bracelets. One hand felt too lonely so after lunch I went to this random 300 yen store and bought another stack for the other hand. Interestingly, my arms did not feel too heavy, and the trend was not too outrageous since my coat hid half of the stacks. I am thinking I may keep on stacking my arms for a while. It is so girly and fun.

Big bracelet with charm: a gift from Hubby from Istanbul, silver ones: birthday gift and the bracelet: a gift from a friend back home

Pearls: bought at World Porters, silver bracelet: a gift from my Dad

The outfit was also put together pretty quickly this morning. I dug these pants yesterday for I have not worn them in ages and decided to keep on wearing them today. I had forgotten how comfy they were. And I added the yellow knit today because it was such a fun color. Now that I think of it, I pinned a similar outfit (but with wide legs pants in green) and look at it just yesterday. Maybe I was influenced by the pin when I pulled this look together or maybe not. Nevertheless, it may become a re run this Winter season...

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…
