CRAZY WEEK

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.

  3. Wow, I like the positivity at the end - whatever you going through, I know it's hard but be thankful keeping in mind that God has a purpose for it and if he wanted it could have been worse. So sorry for your loss, hope you get the strength to bear it. And sorry about the heartbreak and losing your "assistant"... Cheers to an amazing week!

CASUAL FRIDAY

Am so sorry that I have been unavailable, I have been swamped these days that I basically only get time to sleep in the night which is mostly mornings anyway. Although I am still really swamped, I knew that I had to post on my blog. It has been way too long and I have missed my baby and my readers.

I have to skip back to work now but I will leave you guys with this snapshots. Hope you enjoy it.




I have been semi active on instragram as it is less time consuming but I promise I would soon be active back here. My vacation is starting November, so I would be on my blog every other day.






Suit And Tie

If you remember correctly, I showed you all My Big Reveal. So today you would be seeing it in an outfit. I woke up with Angelina Jolie's outfit to BAFTA award on my mind so I decided to replicate it while adding my own touch to the ensemble.


 Yeah, I tried it out with a white lace top. Different but me right?


 My ultimate goal was to take the look and make it as ladylike as possible without ruining the effect of the suit and tie. I loved the outcome and received lots of complements on it.
I also decide to play with grey, black and blue as my basics.
 What are your thoughts. Do you think my way of replication is cool or I should just stick to basic white shirt?














HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY

Good Day Dearies, tomorrow is my country's independence day and I am more than elated about the possibility of a holiday. Still trying to figure out what am gonna do that day, was supposed to go paint-balling with my friends but some of them have exams coming up so that has to be moved. Now am left with planning the brief holiday myself, I really don't want to sleep through out the day. But whatever happens, am still grateful for the day.

Anyway as a truly patriotic citizen I decided to wear green throughout this week but yesterday I was unable to take a snapshot of my outfit bummer hence, the omission of yesterday's post. Today since I got a bit of spare time I decided to post my ootd yippee. This break won't last long so I have to be brief, see the snapshots below


 And am also using this medium to wish my fellow blogger Jennifer Richards a happy belated birthday. Hope to hear your thoughts on my outfit and I totally appreciated the feedback I got from my last post.
