It's been a cold weekend here in Braddy-town. Non-stop snow from friday to saturday. For the past one month, I haven't had any appetite hence losing a considerable amount of weight and having dull skin. (Who knew your skin was affected by your appetite as well?) Anyways, I realised my appetite was coming back again and I planned to go to town on friday to stock up on food but due to the snow, I stayed home and tried to order pizza but they weren't delivering. So I went to bed hungry (I might have even shed a few tears. Lol). I woke up on saturday determined that it didn't matter how heavy the snow was, I was gonna go to town. And I set off with a list of ingredients for jollof & fried rice. Spent a couple of hours out in the cold holding way too many bags. I got home and started the process only to realise I forgot one vital ingredient - THE RICE. I contemplated just making pasta since I had a bit of that but I was like No, I want rice. So I braved the cold again for the 2nd time in one day and I got rice.
First of all, I've never been so excited to buy rice before. Secondly, it made me realise that we don't get results from convenience. If you want something so badly, you're gonna have to step out of your comfort zone to get it. Sometimes you're gonna have to brave the stormy weather, the voice in your head, the discouraging words of others and just do it. Sometimes you're gonna have to give yourself a little slap on the face to catapult you into the right frame of mind to achieve that which you want so badly. So the real question is how badly do you want it?
I was going through my blog reading list when I saw this lovely dress on Cyn's blog. (I stalk her blog) and I was blown away. It was just too gorgeous. I had seen it on asos a couple of times but never really paid attention to it 'cause wiggle dresses are not really my thing. However, after seeing Cyn rock it, I ordered it straightaway (it helped that asos was doing 25% off for students). The dress came in other prints and I decided I would get ankara and sew it in other prints. Dresses like this need to be replicated. I picked this print due to the modern yet retro vibe to it. I figured if I cannot get out of my environment for a little holiday, I might as well dress like I'm on a little holiday. Don't you just love getting inspiration from other bloggers? (I know I do.)
