I always fall in love with outfits that I could wear in real life.Like this one, totally awesome and totally wearable [oh, except the six inch heel] but I could try.
The simplicity in this outfit makes me comfortable. I know am trying to get out of the comfort zone with clothes but I couldn’t help it.
So lets see my recreation…..
I love the bag on the left and I totally want it like right now…
Anyway, enjoy your Friday and make it count!
So, as I told you in yesterday’s post, I have taken up running in the morning. This is not the first time I have done this. While in campus together with hubby, we used to go for morning runs and it was super exciting. We even managed to pull in some of our friends who joined in the running.
Why did I like it so much??? It was so much fun! That’s the simplest and most honest answer as to why I loved running so much. On the other hand, my body did respond very well to the morning runs and I can say that hubby (then b/f) did not complain.
Running together also gave us an opportunity to bond and share something that made us feel better about ourselves. We definitely got closer and our relationship became even more awesome with our morning exercise routine.
However, after he left campus since he was one year ahead of me, we both stopped running. A year later, I left campus too and I did not resume the running schedule. I used to give excuses saying that I couldn’t run alone or I was too busy or such like things.
Anyways, over the past few months, hubby and I have been thinking about starting running all over again. Sometimes, we even decided to start but the sweetness of the morning sleep was too much to handle. On Monday, I made the decision.I know its not gonna be easy but am willing to give it another try. Furthermore, the feeling I get from running is so much better than sleeping in. (Ok, maybe on some days).
No pressure, just me and hubs, running for 30-45 minutes, enjoying the fresh air, the sunrise, the birds chirping and each other. I hope it becomes a habit and sticks as a way to start everyday.
Do you run??Is it in the morning or evening??Any tips for me?? Tell me what you think!!
These skirts are gorgeous and I could not have picked a better item to crush on. Do you wear high-low skirts?? Tell me all about it!!
I’ve always had these white trousers but I do not wear them often. It is not because I do not like them but because white is so hard to maintain. I have to watch where I sit, what touches me, where I walk, just to keep it crisp clean all day. However, last week, my sister encouraged me to wear my white trousers and I loved it.
I paired it with a purple sweater top and really loved the brightness of these colors. Since then, I’ve been looking for purple and white combinations that tickle my heart.

I love it all. I especially feel that this color mix is so bright yet so calm and peaceful. I love that Pinterest gives us a place to explore our creative juices. Am definitely thinking about how I can add more of purple and white to my life.
I have found myself at a point where I actually miss Sundays. Lately, I have been working really hard and that means that I mostly have to work even on Saturdays. This leaves me exhausted and waiting for Sunday so I can relax and rest.
I love the easy mood of Sunday. The easy air with few if any obligations. This Sunday was one of those and I made use of it by resting and catching up on TV shows. This also means that there is not much to report except that last night I actually suffered from insomnia. I got into bed at 10.00 and by 2.00 AM, I was still awake. #veryfrustrating.
Anyway, apart from the inaction of the weekend, I would love to share with you some artworks made by an artists near where I live. I love the originality and creativity in these works. We featured him sometimes back on our other blog, here. Anyway, I hope you appreciate these pieces as much as I do.
On Saturday, I went for a Red Cross Road Show/Walk. It was meant to educate the public on road safety and how we can reduce road accidents in our country. I loved it a lot but I got really really tired. The walk took almost 3 hours and I was exhausted by the end of it all. But I have a certificate to show and a really fun time.
On the way, we would do mock accidents and teach people how they can be avoided and how to handle them when they occur!!
Sunday, I was trying to rest but I had to do laundry. I also attended the birthday party of my neighbors beautiful daughter and got a little drank.
Didn’t even think I would be able to wake up today but am fine. This weekend I’ve met a ton of people and made so many new friends. Am so grateful and I hope to enjoy this week as much as I enjoyed the weekend.This is the road that our campaign was focusing on. I hope you stay safe on the roads too!!
I love stripes. I actually have a red and black striped sweater that I wear too much. I know the theme is supposed to represent the American heritage but I went the other way. I took it literally and came up with this outfit. Hope you like it as much as I do. Linking up with av at long distance loving.
Point to self: Next time, just try and post you Friday fancies post a little earlier, thank you!
Have an awesome weekend!
Hi lovely people!Hope the weekend treated you really fine as it did me. I spent time with my deraly missed and beloved family and I can totally say the homesickness is gone. It was like a flu that just had to be cured. Anyway, now that we are on to Tuesday, time to start thinking about more serious matters and about life in general.
In my life, I have reached points where I just felt like I was stuck. You know, life is like a journey and we sometimes reach points in the journey that are a little difficult and we miss the flow. Today, I just want to acknowledge that sometimes, I think that such points are totally pointless and aim at just making it difficult for us. However, on further analysis, I think that such sticky points help us appreciate the good stuff. We also learn an awful lot of things at such points. I do think its good to appreciate these sticky points.
But, more importantly, it is great to appreciate the people, ideas, books, movies, article or thoughts that help usget back to the flow. For example, when I feel stuck emotionally, watching a funny or romantic movie almost always helps me get back to the flow. For others, reading or writing does help in getting back to the smooth ride.
I just want to ask you to identify what helps you get you back to the flow. When you identify these things, it becomes easier for you to get back to a place of smoothness and harmony.
Above all, I wish you all as much flow as I wish on myself. I wish your life flows like a river. That it keeps going and when you get stuck, it is easy for you to get back on the journey. And that your life remains smooth and harmonious. Like a waterfall, easy and always flowing!
