This week has been moving quite great. Work environment has been going smooth. I can't believe I just spoke about my weekend in the prior post and now, another weekend is almost here.

Today, I was talking to my husband about vacation and how it seems like we exhausted all our vacations before summer offiically started and we both think we need another get-away. I miss our family in Canada and London, but since the family in London is coming over to Canada for vacation, we might as well join the fun. Canada is always fun. I miss my sister-in-law Purnima's Kao Pao chicken--she is the best at it :)

I miss having everyone around. The last time we were all together was in December in Nigera. Remembering my visit to Nigeria and how every night was always fun and loud. We will all sit in the living room with tons of "Suya" (like spicy grilled meat on the stick or cut up in chucks) and chatting about everything or watching movies. Love family time!

On the other hand, it would have been nice to be in London for the Olympics, but I will definitely be cheering and watching swimmng, gymnastics and track from my living room.

Do you have a specifc interest in any sports that will be showing during the 2012 London Olympics?

In high school, I was such a huge sports girl. I ran track and played soccer. I still enjoy watching soccer.

What sports did you do or still do?

Resort 2013: Peter Pilotto

Oh my god! This was simply my expression when I first saw this
collection. Peter Pilotto is known for their prints and this season,
they did not disappoint. From the styling to the prints, this season’s
resort collection is breathtaking.

Those of you who visit my blog or follow me on Facebook know how much
I truly love mix prints and this is just amazing. Love the energetic
graphic prints and the bright colors presented by De Vos and Pilotto –
they just swept me off my feet. Love how the bright colors: blues,
yellows, purples and greens were joined with black, turquoise, and
white. How can I forget the shoes—slightly toned down, the shoes are
well orchestrated into the whole collection. Words cannot justify how
much I love this collection!

Have a lovely day!

xoxo

Ankara Train

Tribal 1 by www.jadore-fashion.com

Hi everyone, How was your weekend? Hope your week started on a good note.

Sewa%26Bode1040-1916147757-O

Why do Mondays have to be so long? Each time I looked at my watch, it felt like it never moved a second and everyone at work looked so drowsy, tired and quiet...I guess it was the "Monday Blues". To add to this, the office was freezing and I had no jacket. All I could think about was my bed, blanket and a cup of hot chocolate or capuchinno. :)

Tribal by www.jadore-fashion
Anyway, this is my weekend recap. I had a nice relaxing weekend which started Saturday in the afternoon as I worked a few hours earlier that morning. After work on Saturday, I went for a photo shoot, which was fun with the exception of the blazing sun and heat wave which was unbearable. My photographer friend Paosin and I looked like we seriously needed a cold drink and nap. At the end, I was happy because the pictures turned out great.

Sewa%26Bode1042-1916147810-O

Leaving the photo shoot location in a haste, I forgot my brogue on the floor, right next to my car and drove away to my friend, Vera's house. When I got to her house, I realized I left my brogue...I was so exhausted and probably dehydrated that I didn't know whether to cry or laugh at that moment. Thank goodness Vera rode with me and I was fortunate to find my shoes in the same spot. She made some food, which was nice because I badly needed a meal at that point.

Vera was supposed to assist me with email related questions, but instead, we chatted late till the AM...yep, girl talk never ends. In all, I had a nice time at her place, had an amazing meal and took some home LOL!

Sewa%26Bode1038-1916147678-O
On Sunday, after church, I planned to relax and edit some pictures, while hubby went out on a video gig (you can check out some of his wedding videos here). Instead, I ended up mounting two new rolling garment racks, which I bought from Target as the one I had kept falling...blame it on Walmart's cheap sale LOL! Again, rather than assembling the racks, I suddenly found myself organizing the whole closet and by the time I realized it, I had spent almost 3 hours doing God knows what in that room. At least now, I have an organized closet ;)

Beach Adventures...Soak Up The Sun

PR Beach Bag by www.jadore-fashion.com

You probably thought I was done with pictures from my vacation to Puerto Rico ..well, not exactly. These pictures were taken a day before we left PR. It was blazing hot and walking on the sand felt like torture. 

PR Beach 1 by www.jadore-fashion.com

It was really hot and sunny; I got a tan few minutes after arriving at the beach. Thank goodness for hats & sunglasses along with a double layer of sunblock and SPF cream. I felt safe and protected.

Virgos Lounge: Embellished skirt

VL1 By www.jadore-fashion

Hey guys! How is everyone doing? The heat wave over in the East coast is not funny at all. It was so hot yesterday that it felt like I was roasting in an over even though I was barely outdoors. The heat and humidity seem to be getting worse as we officially start summer today. This makes me wonder what this summer has to offer...hmmmm!

VL FULL

On the other hand, the week seems to be crawling. I thought it will be Friday already...seriously, after working 10 hours days since Monday, it feels like this week can't get any slower. In fact, I still have those Monday blues and it is not even Monday. I can't wait for the weekend to get here even though I have zero plans.

The Chinese publication enlisted the artist Jo Bird to illustrate a fashion story styled by fashion editor Charlotte De Vos for ROUGE's Summer Issue. His art work is just charming. Love the attention to fashion details, which included different brands of shoes and bags.

Have a great day!

Dots & Bows

Nabeel+n+Tahmina535-1868307791-O

Hey beautiful people! How was your weekend?

Nabeel+n+Tahmina522-1868307707-O

On Saturday, I attended a wedding ceremony after a few hours of work. I was extremely tired after work that all I wanted was to lay down and take a nap however, the wedding was too important . Despite being tired, I dressed up and headed to the wedding reception, which was great and beautiful. I got home around 12am.

Nabeel+n+Tahmina524-1868307716-O

On Sunday after church, my friend Vera picked me up and we went to a gathering. We spent about  two hours there before heading back to my place where we chatted late into the night. We were so engulfed in our conversation that we didn't realize how late it was ... definitely a fun evening and weekend.

Pardon me if you have been seeing this Zara bag a lot. I can't help it as it fits everything I take with me. This bag is so big that it can fit a kid LOL! I carry a lot of junk in my bag.
I need to do another "What's in my bag" post because you can find almost anything in my bag including my Ipad, a bottle of Aleve and packs of cookies (I take snacks everywhere I go--self-proclaimed foody! LOL)...
