VELVET QUEUED







I don't know about you but I hate queuing up. Yesterday, I was on a queue to see a movie (And a really pretty girl called my name and I turned and smiled at her. Turns out she reads my blog and "loves" it. (Hello, if you're reading this, you made my day yesterday). So I ended up chatting with her and her boyfriend about something really random but it was a really fun conversation. This queue made me think about if sometimes, God makes us queue up in life. You know, a little hold up? The movie was unexpectedly really good. A lot of beautiful lessons. Would I queue up again so I can meet that girl again and let her remind me that I love blogging and watch a movie which made think about the future and having the right priorities in life? Yes. So what if whatever you're going through is God's Way of making you queue up so there could be a better turn out. So maybe if you rushed into the next chapter you might miss the lesson because I have learnt from experience that God isn't just concerned with your destination but your journey. So I guess the next time they make me queue up, I should just look up and say God, any lesson today? Maybe I'm just rambling. I should stop now.

LONG TIME, NO BLOG...


I wish I could say I have some genuine reason for not blogging but I honestly don't. I wasn't going anywhere apart from school which involved wearing a white shirt and a black skirt everyday. I moved to a different state and a remote part of that state for school and I was just depressed. To make matters worse, I got feasted on my bed bugs so I have the scars all over my body to prove it so that really got me down the more.

And I lost interest in blogging. Everyone who found out I was a blogger just wanted to know how much money I made from it...whether I got free stuff and all that and it made blogging just seem rather shallow to me. Most bloggers I met want to go "commercial"...whatever that means. For me, blogging was just fun. It wasn't about free stuff. It was about sharing my experiences and my style in a fun way. There is nothing wrong with wanting free stuff (that is pretty cool to be honest). But that is not why I blog. I love reading emails from women about how my post helped them with their self esteem or how something I wrote helped them retrace their steps back to God or how they just want to get to know God for the first time. Emails/comments like that.....THAT IS WHY I BLOG!!! I got so many emails and tweets asking me where I was. I also got people telling me how for them, I needed to keep blogging. The warmth all these brought to my heart is unexplainable.

I cannot promise to start regular blogging again 'cause that'll be a lie. But I can say that I'm in a good place for everyone who asked. I took a vacation with my sisters and I am lying on the beach typing this. It's hot but it is beautiful. I love it here (Dubai) and I don't want to go back home. lol. I do miss all of you. I really do. I do more stuff on instagram (well, more than here...for now), so you can check me out there: @thatescadagirl

And monochrome clashes...







This is just a quick outfit I wore to my graduation dinner. I wanted something that wasn't tightly fitted but still elegant and do I delved into my "white and black" wardrobe again. I could have ironed the skirt with a little more energy though


OUTFIT DETAILS

PS. I'll be back soon with a more detailed post on how my life has been because I'm currently in Law school which is like in a village. So I'm struggling to cope there.  Pray for me. And thanks to everyone for the congratulations. I had a big grin on my face while reading everyone's comments.
