My Saturday 

I love the weekend and so here’s a look at how my Saturday was! 

 

My bestie and I decided to head over to Upalis for a bit of a late lunch. We picked the Negambo black curry prawn accompanied by basmati white rice, pol sambol and papadam. The prawn curry was to die for and had the right amount of spice and favour! Soooo good! 

 
Also decided to opt for a refreshing amberella juice to quench my thirst before walking across the road and making our way towards Jagro for dessert. 

 

Couldn’t help but dig into the strawberry sundae. It includes three huge scoops of vanilla ice cream, strawberries and chocolate sauce. 

We also went on a quick shopping spree to Mondy but I didn’t snap any pictures from there. I did pick out a light linen black top for half off so yay me! 

Have a good weekend everyone!

NYX lip creams 

  
Bought myself these awesome NYX simply red lip creams in three shades. They are my absolute favourites simply because of the pigmentation and long lasting power. I could eat and drink, lick my lips and dab them with a napkin after a meal and it would still last on my lips. Love love love it! Got them in the shades Candy Apple, Maraschino and Russian Roulette.

More than that 

  
You are more than just a girl. You are more than just a boy. You are more than just a daughter. You are more than just a son. You are more than just a wife and you are more than just a husband. You are more than just a mother. You are more than just a father. You are more than a friend. You are more than a colleague. You are more than just a human being. You are more than the job you have. You are more than the dreams you dreams. You are more than the goals you make and the goals you achieve. You are more than the memories you make and the memories you keep. You are more than the casual hellos and the heart breaking goodbyes. You are more than a shoulder to cry on. You are more than a trustworthy soul. You are more than a guardian. You are more than a savior. You are more than the strength inside and the courage you hide. You are more than the creative individual. You are more than absolute perfection. You are more than a tool and more than a body and brain. You are so much more than you seem… You are you! 

Have a great weekend everyone! Xoxo

Never change 

  

Are unhappy with the way you have been created? I kinda thought I was until I realized that the negativity wasn’t coming from within me…. It’s easy to be fooled by those around and close to us and fall prey to what they say especially if we put our trust in them. If they are the type of people who find fault in you and make you feel bad for being who you are, they don’t deserve to be a part of your life. Be happy with the way you are. Never change just to please someone else. 

Sometimes… 

 As humans, I think we’re programmed to never or hardly be happy with how our lives go. Things seem to be looking up right now but I don’t know if I’m happy or not. I think it’s because I still haven’t got back to my writing but nothing seems to be motivating me. I attended a couple of events and thought about reviewing a restaurant or two but even then, I am not completely motivated. I think I’ve still not found myself… Figured out what I want in life or who I am. Like I’ve said before, these things don’t happen overnight. Just because things are looking up doesn’t mean everything goes back to how they used to be…. It’s all about keeping a positive attitude and outlook on life…..  

Tropics of Linen

  
Treated myself to two new items of clothing last morning from Tropics of Linen. I’m not a hugeeeee linen fan but I do like the quality of these and how comfortable they feel once worn. So I picked out a plain beige like long top as well a beautiful cobalt blue shorter top from the store. My bill was just under Rs 6,000 which for linen I must say is not too bad. Would I go back for more purchases in the future? Oh yeah!!!

Smile 

  
It started out as a bright and sunny Sunday but here I am staring into the afternoon sky and it looks pretty bleak. Grey clouds are hanging low and there’s a cool breeze in the air. Looks like rain; it’ll be here soon. My mood pretty much started out the same this morning. It seemed like a jolly good day but right now I’m not so sure. I’m a little confused about things. 

For the past week or so my husband has been acting different. He’s been coming off work early and spending more time with me. He’s been taking me out for drinks and dinners every other night. He’s definitely been making an effort to be extra nice to me and I am seriously baffled by this behavior. I can obviously see that he’s trying to make things better but for all this attention from the man who hardly gave it over the past few months…. It can get a bit overwhelming and baffle you. I just don’t know how to deal with it. I am smiling a lot more than I used to and I am laughing more as well but I’m not quite sure if I am truly happy deep inside. I mean, things can’t be right just overnight! Life doesn’t work that way and my head and heart and desperately trying to figure out what to do… Here’s what I’ve decided though… I’ll definitely never take this life for granted. This journey is temporary so I am going to make the most of it, if it means through this confused phase and I will be okay.
