Dresscapades

Where will you start?

if you know me at all, then you know how fickle I can be; how indecisive and at times not passionate enough. It can be frustrating. I’ve known myself too often to just let the cards fall where they may and accept it. If the world says I can’t be a writer then I guess, I should… be a psychologist or something. If the world says I don’t have the goods to put myself on such a public platform and talk about fashion and beauty and self-worth, then I guess… I won’t. If this is who you used to know, then even you are surprised that I’ve stayed so committed  to something this long. Continue reading

refinery29’s list of “The 30 Saddest Breakup Songs of All Time” provides a soundtrack befitting a Hollywood style uncoupling. With tracks like Bonnie Rait’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” Adele’s “Someone Like You,” and the No Doubt classic “Don’t Speak,” these songs can surely help express the inexpressible and messy feelings that come with a breakup. But some of my favorite artists that deal seriously with heartbreak and all the feels that follow elude this list. So I’ve provided from my own collection a playlist I hope can be of some use to nurse your broken heart back.

it was Wednesday and raining. I was dreading the traffic I’d encounter on the way home and then my mind drifted into the danger zone: Are my dreams far-fetched and unattainable? Should I rethink some things? Am I doing this in vain?–you know, typical Wednesday thoughts. Then I see it:  adorned on a simple canvas ModCloth tote these inspiring words:

this Thanksgiving of Black Friday brawls and #BlackOutBlackFriday boycotts certainly made for an interesting gathering at our table. For me anyway, the tune of my Thanks changed; first off for taste buds and then, secondly most importantly that we could Thank God we weren’t working when we should be enjoying family and food and of course that we were all healthy, the same people we celebrated last year were present, and we had reason to dance before God. And I mean dance.

it’s Thursday! And if you’re a Serial zealot, that’s exciting news for you. Since I saw Serial editorial advisor Ira Glass on Jimmy Fallon, its appeal has been contagious. I told my sister, who told her husband and friends and so on and so forth. Now we have round the clock discussions about Adnan’s possible innocence or sociopathy, this curious character known simply as Jay, and male chimps.

One of the most comforting things to hear mid conversation is “I saw your blog, it’s really cool.” These kind words usually come out of no where and remind me I’m not doing this blog thing in vain. tumblr_nbsgvws0tK1tstoreo1_500

i‘m not sure about you but I can get pretty lazy when it comes to picking out an outfit for work… particularly when it’s 12 AM the night before. While it’s no news, you should be happy to know that keeping your outfit simple with three strong pieces is all you need to make a look eye-catching.
