As promised I have a gajillion outfit posts from the past few days. The weather is getting better and I don’t have to bundle up in a million layers with a jacket on top anymore. I get cold easy
Army green has always been one of my most fave trend. I love anything camo as well. I have been caught wearing army green and como even when it wasnt a trend haha. So ofcourse it isnt a surprise that I will immediately pull anything and everything army green out of my closet. This dress has to be one of my most expensive purchases as H&M butttttt I just couldnt not have it once I tried it on and I loved the gold detailing on the dress. Hubby and I went out to eat lunch and then we decided to stop by our public library for these pictures. It just recently got renovated and it has to be the cutest and most serene little place with little ponds and gardens. Hubby and I love books and reading so we plan to go back and stand an entire afternoon just looking through books – ah geeks much?
What do you think about the army green trend?

Today was one of the warmest days of 2013! I was a little worried because I have been extremely sick for the past 3 days and I was scared that I might be in bed all day today instead of going out and having a ball. Thanks to my hubby who fed me pretty well the last two days and forced me to get out of bed and shower in hopes it will make feel fresher mentally. IT DID! not only I got to go out but I also recorded my new haul video!!! Sooo excited to edit and share it with you all soon this week.
I decided to wear my latest edition to my closet the H&M tweed dress. I just love how it fits on me. We still dragged along my spare wool jacket incase I feel cold or start getting sick again. I did have my moments when I felt faint but it was a beautiful day. We went to one of the oldest part of our city which is literally my backyard! I am excited because its full of antique shops, cute lil stores, coffee shops etc. We stopped by Bean Hollow and I had the best ever Chai Frappe! We also bought a humongous Cherry cheese danish to share! We took all that fun stuff to the park. Walked around and ate. After that we went to my fave burger place and I stuffed my self with some delicious food All in all a productive day….hopefully this will not wear me out to make me sicker tomorrow…lets keep our fingers crossed.

Today is the big day well one of the big days in Football. My team the Ravens has officially won the Division Championship and we are one game away from Super Bowl (in American Football for those of you who are reading this from other parts of the world )I hated American Football about 3 years ago. I grew up over seas and Cricket and Soccer (err which is what REAL FOOTBALL IS everywhere but in America lol)
Anyhow I had to work at a NFL Store and its my habit to know my products really well so I decided to dwell into American Football world. 3 weeks down the road I am routing for the Ravens and screaming at the TV screen like a maniac. Now when there is a Ravens game on TV I refuse to leave the house or have to be around TV where ever I go.
As each week progressed I was going nah lets give our team another weak and I’ll do an outfit Post with my Jersey as an Outfit. And when better to do it then this week? This was taken on Day one of my Purple Jersey weekend. I had initially decided to wear something purple the entire week but instead I decided to just wear my Jersey every single day of the weekend! Girls whether you like football or not this is one of the cutest ways to pull a Jersey off and still look feminine and cute. If you have an invitation to a Super Bowl Party. All you need is YOUR jersey or just borrow a friends, boyfriends, brothers, sisters or whoevers. Put a longer tank top on to cover your behind in those tights to keep it classy unless you dont care everything hanging out. I just find covering my behind classier And then put the jersey on! I wear mine with leather leggings and if going out with a leather jacket as well. Makes me feel cute but tough..like I can chow on some bones of the team we are going against…Yeah I gets pretty aggressive. My friends are always stunned at how someone can be as nice as me but a complete opposite of that when watching football. And no we are not talking about curse words or bad words…I am just plain violent and competitive lol
Anyhow heres to hoping Ravens are going to Kill the Pats tonight and we will head to Super Bowl… GO team Purple!

Hope you all had an amazing Christmas Day and prep for New Years is going as strong on your end as it is on mine…haha well I have nothing planned as of yet because we were planning to have a house party only we are moving to a new place early February and in my excitement I have plans of packing things ahead of time during my break so we have to just pick it all up and go!
This Christmas I was more excited about the presents I gave to people than the presents I received and had to open. I knew the presents I bought meant alot to me I had spent hours contemplating what each person wanted, needed and liked. Hubby and I woke up and opened the presents we gave each other. I was in dire need of a mug and he knows I love starbucks, so I got a starbucks signature mug and a furry animal hat! I wanted a cute furry hat for a long time and he found me the cutest one ever!!! I was sooooo happy! I actually have had it on all day till I got dressed to go see my family and unfortunately it was raining hard all day otherwise I would have worn it out today to the mall lol
My outfit for christmas was kind of a big confusion. Part of my family is pretty conservative and my idea of a cute christmas dress would not be appreciated by some of them lol. So I had to find something more appropriate. I decided to put on my snake print skinny jeans that I showed in my Last Haul video. I put on a sleeveless Ruffle front top and my fave Red Blazer! I had to wear Red! And I decided to semi Curl my hair. I rarely do anything to my hair other than keep it natural so it was a good surprise for most of the family lol
We ate tons of food! Spent time with my humongous family and opened more presents at my parents later! I am going to ofcourse do a video on the gifts I got as well as a few other things I have bought recently! So watch out for my new video in the next few days =D

Would you believe if I told you that alittle over a year ago my life was colorless? well atleast when it came to fashion. I would only wear dark colors other than red! Oh gosh and yellow as well as white were out of the question. I guess it has a lot to do with my cultural upbringing and talking to quite a few friends from similar backgrounds I realized how it has been beaten down in our system by society that light colors are a terrible thing for dark skinned people only as you grow older you realize that its not quite so! Actually some of my family, friends and acquaintances still have not realized this! So with this concept I present to you my mustard yellow leggings and gloves! Trust me I never imagined myself mixing with this color but I am glad I did…I cant get enough of this now! I am already thinking and raking my head on how else can I incorporate this into my closet! And then ofcourse duh it hits me earlier today how these are my school colors too! Yeah sometimes I can be really slow at picking up things possibly because my brain is like a constant land mine of thoughts one explosion after another- alot of people that personally know me will attest to this. The mustard color isn’t picked up well by the camera unfortunately.
Anyhow this outfit was worn to a quick stroll around the city where we visited a coffee shop that I had been meaning to stop by – Van Gogh Cafe and then after being unable to figure out where to eat we all hoped into my car and sped back to our trusted Sunday Night spot -Duclaws Brewery (Ah remember the land of the best lamb burgers i mentioned in a previous post?) Ofcourse reviews will shortly follow this post
The Ravens won after a tough game and I wondered if its because everytime I dress in anything other than my football jersey on a sunday the game becomes alittle tough to win – Superstitious much?
Anyway let me know what you think of the mustard yellow and are you are willing to give it a try…and if you already have please feel free to share it with me in the comments section!

As December is coming around work schedule is getting more hectic at our office. I am doing alot better than last year when I was up till midnight everyday working on projects but this year I guess since this is my second admission cycle (going through the whole read, process and send out admittance letter by christmas) I have picked up my pace and haven’t been working too much from home but sometimes it is still needed hence I have been MIA on and off the blog but I promise with Thanksgiving break and Christmas break around the corner I will be posting more regularly posting
Anyhow this is the outfit I wore this past weekend when I hung out with my hubby and well earlier his bestfriend and now ofcourse mine too- Mike. We had decided to go check out a chain restaurant I heard alot of hype about Eggspectation (Will be posting the review of the restaurant tomorrow so check back) and then we were planning to head to the mall to buy Black Ops for the boys to play. I didn’t want to be overdressed because this was more of a hangout session with the boys and not just me and hubby! We came back home and decided to watch Snow White and the Huntsman and Oh gawd I am glad I was told by some of my friends when the movie first came out to not go to the theater and waste my money. The movie caused me to fall asleep on the couch only to be woken up by the boys crying in agony of how bad the movie actually is. We decided to stop it half an hour into the movie and called it a day.
Unfortunately I am sad that the sweater’s color didnt come out right. It is more of a dark peachy blush pink (If that makes any sense lol) I had been eyeing it for the longest time at the store and finally got my hands on it. So Excited!

I wasn’t kidding when I said I am obsessed with this flower print that H&M featured in the ad campaign with Lana Del Rey. Also was ecstatic to find these pants on sale at the H&M for close to 10 bucks! I have seen other burgundy or oxblood skinnies but this is a very deep burgundy which sets it apart from others I have seen. I wore this outfit to my mall trip with my hubby and then we stopped by Duclaws Brewing Company to enjoy the most delicious ever Lamb Burger! And trust me when I say I have been looking for some good Lamb burgers in the area. This has to be by far my most fave!
Following dinner I got a much needed haircut. I don’t think you can still tell except my bangs are back above my eyebrows where most people want them to be lol. I also invested in a new hair product that so many different Hairstylists recommended to me but I needed to do my research and kept forgetting. I have been using it and have already noticed a humongous difference and seriously it hasn’t been long enough. Stay tuned to my blog as I will shortly be doing some quick reviews on the new product and the one I have been using for over a month or two now for deep conditioning! I am not kidding my coworkers have noticed a difference. These products seem perfect for winter weather when we wear tons of scarfs/jackets that rub against the nape of your hair and especially my hair gets really dry and tangly during winter. All of that vanished so I am kindda excited

Here is the second outfit post that I couldn’t find time to post thanks to Ms. Sandy the Hurricane. But I am going to be wearing the same outfit today to reminisces the pretty fall leaves before they got trampled and brutally thrown around. Wore this outfit to work with a long duster sweater to make it more appropriate. Some awesome cuties at work loved the leggings and made me blush with all their adorable compliments. We had a big discussion about H&M’s Lana Del Rey Ad campaign and I couldn’t stop urging them to go buy a pair of these leggings for close to 10 bucks!!!
Hubby and I went to get some dinner and party decorations for halloween and I can’t tell you how many people told me they love my pants/leggings. I thought I was the only looney bin in love with this print but it only proved right that this print is to die for! Last I checked at H&M they still have these available in store, so grab a pair if you haven’t already. It will keep your Fall and Winter full of flowers and Color!
Let me know what leggings are your rocking? Feel free to leave links to outfit posts and pictures. I would love to check them out !

I know it has been ages since the last time I posted an outfit post. It’s not that I haven’t been dressing up or trying to show you what trends I have been enjoying in my personal life but things have been utterly busy. From getting back from work late enough that its dark outside and utterly gloomy weather to God knows what all has been impeding me from being able to capture my fave outfit moments. Which of course is making me consider buying a new camera soon possibly a DSLR. My hubby loves photography and he has been hoping I will nod my head in approval of spending a huge chunk of money on the cannon rebel possibly a T3 or T4.
Anyway apart from all that I love love loveeeee this outfit! The most bizarre incident happened when I was wearing my leather tights at the mall. Some lady walks up to me and tells me my pants look really cool. I thanked her and then she asked me if she can feel the texture of my leather pants. I reluctantly but very politely told her sure. She got a good feel of my knee and declared to her lady friend that these pants are really cool. That ensued a discussion on where I got them from. I gave this key piece of information , she walked off all happy while I just sat their wondering did this just really happen to me? Well I guess I’ll take that as a compliment I love my new Cobalt Blue shirt and of course the snakeprint clutch!!!! Gosh I can just live in this outfit

Fall is officially here and I couldnt wait to step back into one of my all time fave outfit styles in my fave color: A Plummish or Purple Dress with tights and boots! Not to mention I am a big Ravens fan and our team colors are Black and Purple. I had to rep the colors after this Sunday’s AMMMAZING WIN!
I wore the outfit to work with a Black Blazer on top. I had no makeup on all day.I did a quick 5 minute makeup magic trick as I was headed out of work. Simple transition from work to a date night outfit in a jiffy. Unfortunately I didn’t picture the Blazer with my outfit cause I wanted to show off the dress once I got out of work and headed to dinner with the hubby! Left the Blazer in the car
These boots are the only boots that are doctor appointed to be worn by me for now! Cant wait to fully recover my feet so i can break into some different pair of boots! Lets hope I get to do that by the end of this winter. As mentioned on my inspiration page Plantar Fasciitis could be a life long ailment so lets keep our fingers crossed
