Happy Monday Y'all. Today I won't be positing pictures of my outfit (would do that later) but I just want to share how my preceding week turned out. I know this is a bit different for me owing to the fact that I only write a long essay when it's about finance but today it's about me and hopefully someone would feel encouraged.

The week began with a kind of a low, physically I wasn't feeling up to it, emotionally I was confused and spiritually it was low too but that was just Sunday. As Monday rolled around, I realized that I took that confusion into work. I made so many mistake that on an normal day would have been costly (like losing my job) but my boss (who by the way is the most understanding person I have ever worked with) asked me if I needed time out because I haven't been acting myself as you would learn later I should have taken the week off but I didn't.

Opening to Tuesday, I learnt that a dear one had Leukemia. I was sad, terrified and torn to bits. I thought it couldn't get worse but it did by the next day, he was in coma. The doctors were fighting to keep him alive which means that the cancer was now the least of their problem. I couldn't believe what was happening, why was this happening in succession, what had I done to the universe to deserve this but the universe was evidently not done with me.

Waking up on Thursday, I was already emotionally tired and exhausted. I wanted to badly call in sick but what would I be doing at home?, so I went to work. That day I got dumped (for no reason what-so-ever) and by the evening of that day my friend lost his battle with Leukemia. I had to talk to someone and since I just lost the person I would have naturally called I called a friend of mine who I was to attend his wedding on Saturday. He encouraged, comforted and he said when you hit rock bottom, it will be up from there on. And I remembered telling him that I have hit rock bottom before and that this was not it, this was just a string of bad luck all in one week. He replied that it can't get any worse than it is but he was surely mistaken.

Friday morning, I was determined to be positive. Keep a brave face and take the day by storm, nothing, absolutely nothing was going to spoil my day. Apparently, the forces of nature had me on their joke list because as I was about to step into my colleagues car on our way to work a vehicle (a 16 seater bus) rammed into me and took me from the car to the middle of the road. Everyone was afraid that I was dead, my colleagues car was badly damaged and I was lying helpless on the floor. I was taken to the hospital and the driver was arrested. Asides from a few bruises and painful joints, I was fine. I thought an escape from death should end this terrible week but I had one more day before the end of the week.

I wanted to stay home all day so that the week would pass but I had promised to be at a friend's wedding and I didn't think not showing up was the best idea so naturally I went for the wedding. Everything was going on well, too well compared to the week I was having. Everyone was having fun and I was beginning to shake off the weirdness of the week when it happened. Where is my trusty assistant, it was just here a second ago. My phone, the second piece of me was missing along with my entire contact and documents. I couldn't believe it. I informed the management of the event place and the police but all I got was for me to come back when I had a suspect. How on earth was that going to happen. I looked and looked but nothing. By the evening of that same day, the management of the event center said they would look through their cctv and get back to me. You mean you had camera everywhere all morning and you allowed the person to go, why?, I was utterly confused. For the first time in this entire week of a mess I cried and cried and cried. Why was this happening to me. I cried till I was emotionally drained. I cried till I felt empty, drained and weak.

On that night, I made a resolution. Never again would I be attached to anything to the point of this much pain, never go to an event without a partner, life is too short so just live it because I could drop dead anytime and relationships come and go but staying true to yourself is the ultimate goal.

The week could have been worse, I could have died but am still here so I guess the joke is really on the universe for this useless tricks. So this is my bit, no matter what you may be going through just know that when there is life there is a way. Keep living and don't ever stop for a second because at the end of the day it's about how you invested your life. Life is for living so live it up.


  1. I'm speechless. This sounds like you had the worst week anyone could ever have. I feel so sorry for your loss. I know there are not any words in this world that can make it any better. I'm glad you didn't get hurt worse at the accident. Stay strong and live! That's the best one can do.

My first attempt at incorporating a turban without wearing a trad went amazing well. I have been tying turbans and scarves a lot lately (and no it isn't religious more like my culture) but never tried it with a top and pants. So today, I decided to break that norm and use a turban with whatever I choose to wear. Hence, this outfit. What are your thoughts?.

Wardrobe Staples For Every Working Lady

Hello dearies, today I would be writing about investing in timeless pieces that are work appropriate while remaining budget friendly and I basically live my life around this pieces.
A Basic Blazer: When I say basic blazer please refrain from picking up that ugly and pain inducing blazer that is on your mind, thank you. Now a basic black blazer should have a perfect fit, inviting look and skin friendly material while still remaining affordable. Is this possible, yes it is. You just have to know where to shop (lol). I found a few Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here.

A Statement Jacket: I love a statement jacket especially those morning when you are half awake and can't be bothered to put together an outfit (yes I am one of those people who wait till the last minute to pick out my look for the day), all you need is that jacket that can pull together any piece you throw on together like these Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here

Perfectly Tailored Pant: This can't be overst…

Dark Matters

I technically stole the Post Header from the series Dark Matter which I have been into recently (If you haven't seen any episode, you are missing a lot trust me on that) and since my dress code was basically on the dark color spectrum, I can possible say the series spoke to me as my mode was far from dark (and also I might have been running late hence this lol).  I have also noticed that most of my recent outfit had been revolving around black and white color spectrum (which is totally unconscious BTW), so for this look I tried to branch out a bit but couldn't. So I am making a promise here that my next outfit post would be rid of any black or white color and would be a cool play on color combination.  Till then, I leave you guys with my Thursday work look. A little update on my leg injury, the doctor said I would soon be able to start rocking my heels again. Hopefully my next post would also showcase the newest addition to my shoe collection. TGIF people, have a wonderful we…
