Do you sometimes go through your day running around trying to achieve your goals, eat healthier, exercise (or try to), spend time with loved ones that you even forget to take care of yourself.? That happens a lot to me but thank God for good friends who reach out to me & remind me to take a break, go out for a drink & a laugh, a lovely massage or just a telephone call or text to find out if I am doing fine. I guess that is where my 'glow' comes from & am grateful for each &...

How do you go about trying out new things, trends or adventures? Do you try them out cautiously or are you the type that goes all in at once? In my case it really depends on what it is, for example the 'Snake Print trend' that we have seen all over in the last couple of seasons. In my opinion this trend is not really a classic for me, so as with all such, I choose not to invest a lot on it. On the contrary , this is where I scour Ebay & thrift stores to find gently-worn pieces to add to my...

Just as the blog title hints, my love for grey dresses is clearly not going anywhere even with spring 'springing' on us. We had some really nice weather over the weekend & this dress was perfect, cosy enough to keep me warm but the fabric is also thin enough to keep me cool when the sun came up. Happy Spring (very late wishes) & wish you all a lovely (grey-less) week ahead :)

This is a story about love, an 'interracial love' to be precise, the fear of losing a new-found love, the fear for one's own life, a belief in the super-natural world, death threats, going against the 'oracle' to pursue a love that you believe in, a hope for a shared future, the start of a family in light of the unborn child....all this encompassed in a musical atmosphere. This enchanting story written by 'Micha Hamel', performed by some of the most beautiful voices that I have ever heard &...

What's the first assumption that you make when you see me (online or in person)?..... Many people are surprised that I am not as tall as I look in my photos. 'Objects may appear bigger/taller than they really are...' That probably has to do with the angle at which my photos are taken because I have never claimed to be tall at all. Or is it the outfits that I tend to wear, like this striped look, you know how vertical lines have a way of making you look like 'Naomi Campbell' :) Oh, & another...

Shift dresses have been a wardrobe essential for many women since its 'birth' in the 1960's. There's a calmness & elegance that they add to any look which makes them a go-to for almost any occasion. And this put-together look that is effortless is just what every woman needs to have in their wardrobe & of course in different prints & Colours. It gives you a plain board on which you can add different accessories how you like it. Whether you want the end result to be something...

'Not every opportunity or person that knocks on your door should be let in.' I read this quote somewhere some time back & funnily enough it is only now that am really getting its meaning. At times you pray & actually wish that a certain opportunity should come your way & the excitement that you feel when this happens is unbelievable. But for some crazy reason, you miss the right time to grab the opportunity & you sadly have to watch it slip way. And after going through the '5...

Today is Valentine's Day (Yeeeeaaaah), & a very special day for a hopeless romantic like me. Who else wears red religiously on Valentines Day, or at least tries to? Well, I am guilty as charged, no 14th of February since I can remember has ever gone by without me putting on something red & I have enough eveidence to support that claim, here, here, here & here & here :-). And even when the weather is sometimes so tricky, that's where red accessories come in, like this amazing red...

Uneven grounds just like uneven hemlines must be cleverly tackled. Pieces of clothing with Asymmetrical hemlines can be tricky to pull off but when done correctly, I think they bring out the fun in every single outfit. And that tactic also applies in life when you find yourself on uneven grounds; you have to be very careful when planning on your next move. You either tread very carefully or you don't make a single move & stay safe (something I often find myself doing). A very cowardly...

3 guesses what the blog title is about....Hint Hint (Far East Asia & East Africa)! One of the fashion trends in the last seasons has been 'Asian Inspired' & it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Such pieces are characterized by their ornate detailing with today's designers adding their own contemporary spin to it. The runways & stores were full with Chinese-inspired silhouettes in colorful florals adorned with embroidery, feathering, mandarin collars, contrasting binding & silk...
