I’ve never been a t shirt and jeans kind of girl but I actually like this look. I guess simplicity is a nice change sometimes.


everything from Splash (except shoes)

After two months of stressing out and candle lighting and prayers, the boyf has landed a great job! I’m so happy because I really thought he might have to leave Dubai or end up homeless or something (rents in Dubai are crazy high) but it’s all looking better. We even managed to get two new big clients for our design business and hopefully Ampersand Style’s launch should happen sooner. Having faith really does pay off (that’s what I feel anyway) and I knew we would get through this. I think we’re also lucky that it was just 2 months, there are people out there who have been unemployed for 6 months or more and I can’t imagine how stressed out they are. I really wonder when this recession will end but I guess we just have to take it in and learn from it.

Embrace adversity. Embrace it with all you have. Because it is the greatest teacher—if you learn from it- Salma Hayek

On the down side, I will miss spending so much time with him but the plus side is that I get to focus on my blog and design work now 🙂

I hope you’re having a great day ♥
