Tis' the season...

Tis' the season to be jolly............
For me, tis' the season to be busy. The kids have so many shows, concerts, potluck parties and what not going on at their school and obviously I am the one who has to attend all those parties and cook for some. It is fun but believe me, a pain. I always wanted to work, and right now I am disappointed that I don't. But in the back of my mind I am thankful to be a housewife. I do not know how I would achieve all these things on top of a full time job. Working mothers, hats off to you!

Today was more laid back than usual; after my son's concert, I went to have lunch with some mothers from a baby group I used to attend.
Here is what I wore:

Beret - Cial
Coat - ???
Sweater - Thrifted
Denim shirt - Aeon
Pants - H&M
Bag - Chatujak market Thailand
Shoes - A'gaci

Me and my Baby

My son had to wear red or green for the concert so I put him in his velvet green pants. I wore red pants and a green bag at random and some mothers at school thought that I was respecting the theme of the concert. But it was totally not calculated. Or was it? I do not know. All I know is that I wanted to wear my chunky knit with a denim jacket after seeing it on one of my fave fashion blogger (Sweater Weather from Yentina, My Edit). I have become the fashion imposter, stealing style on other people's blog. I used to complain about people stealing other's style but here I am doing the same. I am not a total thief though because at least I put my own spin on things like my beret or my accessories. Rarely do I copy an outfit down to a T. How about you, are you total style copycat or you do your own thing without being inspired..? do tell!

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…
