Blessed

Why do I feel blessed? It is because of my two wonderful kids. They're my angels, ever since they came into my world, I never felt alone. So you know, it's not easy to raise a child or children, it is definitely a big job, but having them is a wonderful thing. Wonderful enough that you're willing to sacrifice anything for them. You are willing because you know that by doing that you are attaining something that is in a lot greater value. As a young mom, you're probably thinking how much things I gave up for them. Ask me if it's worth it? Without a doubt, I would definitely say, YES! In fact, what I feel guilty about is me not giving my very best, because I think I still have to give more time and do more things to help them grow to be better and better each day. In Shaa Allah 

Just to clarify to those who are scared to become a mom, please fear not, because you're missing out the feeling of intense love and happiness. Here's an interesting fact: you can have babies and still go out with your girlfriends or eat on an eat-all-you-can restaurant.You can have babies and still drive a car and watch a concert or a movie with your husband. And definitely, you can have babies and still pursue a career. It's just a matter of challenging yourself and knowing how to manage your time properly. (ahem, not really an expert in that though, hehe)

So anyway, my kids are growing up too fast, and I feel scared and excited at the same time. Scared, because I will surely miss them being a child, and also slightly because I might feel old.(hehe) Excited, because In Shaa Allah they'll be like my best friends whom I could hang out and talk with. :)

here are some photos of my two lovely kids that I personally took:







Alhamdulillah! :)

Palazzo Pants

Palazzo pants are so in again. It amazes me how fashion repeats itself, just like the phrase we always hear that "history repeats itself." I love how the fashion industry today looks to the past for some inspiration so a cyclic effect occurs. How I wish my mom kept all her clothes, because they were all gorgeous. Well, as to what I've seen from her photographs. I mean, I think I can do a lot of things from it, like mix and match and stuff. And so because I'm a fan of vintage style. 

To give you a little background, palazzo pants emerged on the 1920s on fashionable women like Coco Chanel and Katarine Hepburn, who paired them with striped tanks and flat espadrilles. After that they were again a big hit in the 70s. So, Imagine, it's not just your mom who might have like this, but your grandmother too. cool, right?

Some of my fave photos from google:

Many might have said that palazzo pants are hard to pull off. That it's made only for tall and skinny. Well, I don't believe in that. I think with proper styling and confidence you can pull it off. The best way to wear it is with heels, preferably pumps or wedges.

here's me sporting the palazzo pants:



I'm a sucker for comfort, hence why I love palazzo pants. They're oh so comfortable and perfect since I'm not used in wearing skirts.
