Never worn challenge: Printed shirt

As the end of my Never worn challenge is approaching, I feel like rushing to wear all the items I have not worn yet. Take this printed shirt for example, I struggled to wear it. Strike that, for it is not true. I wore it four times this month: once for a lunch at a friend's house,  two times for lunch with the family and today to run errands. So basically it was not hard to pull off. But I hated how it looked the first two times. I paired it my fave harem pants and my plaid jacket or a cardigan ( Sorry no pics!) The reason I did not like it was that the shirt is not wide enough to hide my muffin top. In fact the asymmetrical design ( short in front, long in the back) and small slits on the sides, makes my waist looks wider. And this is not a look I want to go for.

However after weeks of working out and trying to eat right, the shirt seems to fit me much better now. Plus I think that changing from loose pants to more slim fitting ones made a difference.

I took these pics at Cafe Coffee day in Koregaon park and the bathroom of La Sicilia in Dhole Patil road. I am sorry for the poor quality.

I have to say that I was ready to toss this shirt in the "to give" pile but after wearing it with skinnies, I changed my mind. It is a keeper even if it wrinkles easily and the printed birds faded a bit after wash. It is just a fun and basic shirt. Plus it is so airy that it will come in handy in the scorching upcoming months. So this one is a keeper.

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…
