You know how you go around living life, minding your business (like me 🙂 ) and every now and then you come across people that dress absolutely nice.. And you go, wow, she/he must have some idea about fashion, to pull of such mash up, or they must have broken the bank to look so good? Well, I’ve learnt that one just has to be imaginative and bold enough to pair up certain pieces and colors together and no, you don’t necessarily have to break the bank to achieve this. There are so many stores you can get really cool clothes and accessories from at reasonable prices (post for another day).
”Pink calms and reassures our emotional energies, alleviating feelings of anger, aggression, resentment, abandonment and neglect. Studies have confirmed that exposure to large amounts of pink can have a calming effect on the nerves and create physical weakness in people”
Some mornings I wake up grouchy, really grouchy 😐 I don’t feel like getting out of bed, talking to anyone or doing anything. This could easily be achieved if I lived alone and was self employed right but nah, I still live with my parents and have a 9-5 job *sigh* so I do have to say good morning, have lil chit chats with the sister or whoever and then go to work.
I recently bought a plain snood with no idea of how or when I was going to wear it, bearing in mind that it’s crazy hot these days, so you can imagine how elated I was when I woke up this morning to slight drizzle and cool breeze. Being a Friday, I whipped out my tennis shoes, a pair of really comfy denims, a black tank top (I know I’m not supposed to wear black for a week but common *rolls eyes*) and my snood 🙂
I’m not a huge fan of weddings. My mum does not understand why a ‘young girl’ like me would rather lay in bed than attend weddings. She has advised me quite a number of times to start attending weddings, what scares me a little is when she says ”I wonder who will attend yours when you’re getting married” … Hmm, maybe I will hire people lol.
On those booooring Saturday and Sunday afternoons when I’ve got nothing to do, nowhere to go to and sometimes, no power, I’d go up to my room, lock my door, bring out all my clothes and start dressing up. I would pair outfits in ways I’ve never worn them before. Mix and match colors, add accessories, try on different pairs of shoes. Most times I’d sneak off to my sisters wardrobe and raid it for whatever I need hehehe and voila! outfits for the new week 🙂 (with my room looking like a battlefield).
”Amaka, you can’t wear that. Try this instead, ooh I love this dress, try this too, ‘don’t you think its a bit too short? Nope! But I’m not comfy’ Okay,okay lets try this pair of jeans and that yellow top, hold on while I go steal Ann’s gold pumps. *Few minutes later* Yes! We have a winner 🙂
That’s me and my cousin trying to get her ready for her date hehehe’‘
