One minute you have everything under control,'Everything (well, almost everything) is going as planned & then suddenly, ''Whoosh'', just like that it all changes. And of course, if there's anything that 2020 has tried to teach us, it's that even the 'best laid out plans' also fail. The best that we can do is to try to be flexible in how we respond to such sudden changes. I know, easier said than done. This is me & all my 4 emotions that I experience every single day of my life as an...

I remember when we were advised/requested to stay home at the beginning of the Pandemic so as to contain the spread the disease, I promised myself that if the situation ever improved, I would spend all the free time I had outside. So when the opportunity arose, trust me I went all out & took a short trip to 'Marschacht', a charming little area on the shores of the Alster River & had a beautiful day there. I took a walk along the river bank, had something to eat & simply enjoyed the...

I was recently invited to a party by a friend (actually a lady that I work for who has since become a friend). I really wanted to wear something handmade & even had an idea in my head of a dress with some African print & fringes to make it fun. It was a house party & there would be some 'Swing & Jazz' music, so I thought that 'Fringe' would make a perfect addition to my outfit because of it's movement & flirt-ability (does that word even make sense)! There's this dress that...

Looks who's back! Hi guys! It feels strange typing here, strange but somehow nice, like reconnecting with an old friend after parting ways. You've both changed with time & don't know how to start all over again, but there's a certain feeling of anticipation that comes with experiencing fun & new things together. You both still have fond memories of how good it feels when you are together but at the same time you want to take time to get to know each other again. Somehow like trying to...

'You will always be too much for some people. Those are not your people!' Yesterday was my birthday & I am so so thankful for everyone who made it so special. I am so grateful for having each & every one of you in my life....Thank you! The past few weeks have been tough-physically & emotionally, but I am still here, standing strong & with a smile on my face. I don't know how I did it but I managed to achieve quite a few goals that I had set out for myself & for that, I am...

I think that I am experiencing a 'Writer's Block' at the moment, not because I am at a loss of words or that I don't have anything to write about (knowing myself, that is almost impossible), but it's because my mind, emotions & feelings are completely in jumbles at the moment. So instead of writing something that makes absolutely no sense to you guys, I thought that it would be better for me to take a step back, re-examine myself & use the chance to re-introduce myself to you & also...

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 :)

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...
