Eid Mubarak!

Eid Mubarak everyone! Taqqaballahu minna wa minkum! May Allah accept from me and you.
I hope you had an enjoyable Eid. It was a great Eid weekend for us Alhamdulillah. As usual, lots of food and lots of family visits. I managed to only get a quick snap of one of my Eid outfits. As it’s summer I went with something semi casual, colourful and lightweight.

It takes me forever to get dressed now…partly due to the ‘selecting the outfit’ phase!  I’ve attributed this to a few factors:

  • weight gain due to pregnancy
    • I’ve lost half of my pregnancy weight and haven’t really bought any new clothes aside from the occasional cardigan and blouse. As a result, my wardrobe seems very limited (and snug!).
  • breastfeeding
    • the limited clothing choices I have is reduced even more to those items that I can  comfortably nurse in.

And to make matters more trying are the multiple weddings we’ve attended in the past couple weeks.  I refuse to buy or sew new outfits for every event so I’ve had to come up with creative ways to wear pieces that I already own. The dress below was first worn to my graduation and then later to a family event.  Both times I wore it with a shirt under for a semi-casual look but for a wedding I wanted something more formal so I wore a black blazer over. I added a few bling pieces for some sparkle as well.

After hard work, cometh ease….

So all the last- minute studying and assignment completions finally reaps some rewards. I’m a bit of a procrastinator when it comes to doing my school work, but I do get it done on time, and it’s good work too (if I do say so myself 😀 )

Last night I attended our college’s annual student awards night.  It was an evening dedicated for presenting the top students of the college with various awards and recognitions.   I was honoured to be among the recipients, Alhamdulillah.
