New dress!

Growing up,  I used to be known as the girl who always wore jeans. But now I am happy to report that I morphed into a girl who (almost) always wear dresses. I still love jeans but I can never pass a good maxi dress. I found this one during a trip back home. I went to the market looking for Wax or African printed fabrics and with the left over money I purchased two maxi dresses. Not knowing what they really go for back home, I am sure I was cheated but both at 800 rps, it was still a steal. I really enjoy this one because it is very airy, the print is ladylike and the pleats in front are feminine. I broke it for our last day stopover at Dubai.

Ah, Dubai! What to say? I am thinking that three days are not enough to sight see, shop and catch up with my best friend. Although I managed to do two out of three in three days. The Mall of Emirates was less overwhelming this time, and I did enjoy checking my fave brands that I missed like H&M and Forever 21. I did not buy a single thing there because I was on a hunt for specific items they did not have ( like a canari yellow blazer).  But I did enjoy the shops displays and overall ambiance. I checked several other brands and found good articles. I ended up buying a snake skin peep toe pump ( not on the list but really perfect for my feet) a Zara imitation shopper's bag that come with a matching clutch, a sleeve less blazer and orange pants. 

Seriously, I think we are overdue for a proper visit to Dubai. I am not sure as to when but once the tickets are booked, I will be on a saving spree so that I can enjoy a proper shopping spree in here.

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…
