Pregnancy Chronicles 1

Video by LynksDrivers
I plan on doing videos on my pregnancy journey and this would be the first in the chronicles. There have been so many changes and being a first time “mom-to-be”, everything is so new -- from the growing bump to mild kicks. I am enjoying every minute of it and those tiring days too.

For the next video, I would love to answer any question(s) that you may have for me...pregnancy related or not. Please leave all questions in the comment field and I will try to answer on my next video blog.
Wearing: Asos sweater (here, love this herehere) & Michael Kor watch (similar here), Lipstick (here)

Neutral Dark

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? I am sure some of you watched the Oscar Awards. Any thoughts on Seth Macfarlane’s hosting style? It was nice to see Ben Affleck’s Argo win. Funny enough, I just saw "Argo" on Saturday...great movie.

On the other hand, what was your favorite gown from the red carpet? I tweeted all night about the gowns some of the celebrities wore. You can check out some fabulous outfits on my facebook and Instagram.

Deciding what to wear on a daily basis depends on my mood and of course, the weather. Sometimes, I love to style outfits around statement pieces i.e. shoes, tops or bottoms. For this outfit, the main focus is the neutral Zara pants. I love the tone and black stripes on the sides in addition to the ankle button. Lately, I have been leaning towards tuxedo inspired pants and I completed the look with a sheer blouse and black pumps.

Hi everyone! Hope your week has been going great. After a brief break from work, I am back to my regular schedule. I feel so energized right now and how I wish the weather will warm up quickly. I am one of those looking forward to spring...warm weather and floral dresses. :)

In this post, I am wearing my Asos maternity pant which feels comfy and fun. Unlike other maternity pants, it has no uncomfortable extended band. This Asos white pant is just perfect--stretchy and comfortable. I paired it with my "Geek" sweater and my Nicholas Kirkwood sandals for a touch of color. ;)

Weekend Recap

Weekend Rrecap by

Hi everyone! How did you spend your valentine’s day and how was your weekend? I had dinner with my husband on valentine’s day and the weekend was an extended valentine’s day as he planned a surprise treat for me. He took me and our munchkin for a weekend getaway at the Ritz in VA. I felt relaxed and did nothing but crawl up in bed with my iPad, eating mangoes, smoothies and waffles.

On our way back home, I stopped at the 'Macaroon bee' in DC as I have a new obsession i.e. vanilla and coconut macaroons. I definitely recommend either. Has anyone tried macaroons? What is your favorite flavor? When we got home in the evening, I exhausted myself organizing my closet. This post is about my weekend and if you follow me on Instagram, twitter or Facebook, you might have seen some of the pictures.

Winter Floral

Hello! How is everyone doing? Did you watch the Grammy Awards Show? What are you thoughts? I particularly enjoyed the red carpet which I tweeted about. The styles were interesting and I was surprised to see Rihanna’s dressing which was different from her prior styles. I loved her Azzedine Alaia dress and the whole look reminded me of her "Pon De Replay" era. In addition to Rihanna’s some of my favorite outfits at the show were Kelly Rowland’s, Beyonce’s, Solange Knowles’ and Chrissy Teigen’s. What were your favorite red carpet outfits?

The outfit in this post is not a maternity outfit. It is a floral pant and top from H &M and I went a size up to accomodate my growing bump. I am longing for spring weather and the floral print is subtle which gives me a transit feeling from the fall weather to a spring like one. The black trimmings on the edges stand out while complementing the floral prints. I completed the look with one of my favorite black pumps.

iCook: LohisCreations :: Jollof Rice


Hi everyone! Today’s post features the lovely Lohi from Lohiscreations . I am delighted that she agreed to make one of my favorite dishes i.e. Jollof Rice. Her blog has a lot of exotic cuisines and seriously, I am always hungry each time I visit. Being pregnant, I am always hungry with a desire to eat anything that looks yummy.

Below are quick steps for making Jollof Rice. If you have never tried this dish, I strongly recommend you try it out. I love the addition of garlic, ginger and basal...nothing beats the aromatic smell of spices. Enjoy!

Stella Jean is an Haitian-Italian designer working in Rome. She is known for her playful ensemble that make a statement with the use of African prints. Being a big fan of mixing prints, I love the styling direction of this Spring/Summer 2013 collection and the incorporation of strips with bold prints in a modern and fresh way.

Geometric Lines

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? Like most people, I am still euphoric about Super Bowl 2013. Beyonce's halftime performance, the surprising reunion of Destiny's Child and the Baltimore Raven’s victory definitely made my day. Yesterday was the first time I sat through a whole football game which I truly enjoyed it. It was a fun Sunday and I split my time attending two different Super Bowl parties organized by friends.

On Sunday morning, I posted a picture of this skirt and a floral pant on my Instagram while trying to decide which to wear. I went with the skirt which I purchased from Asos. These days, I go up a size when buying clothes and I can always tailor for fit after delivery. The elastic waist of the skirt gave some added comfort. I kept the outfit simple with a focus on the skirt’s geometric stripes and slit. The JCrew red belt added a touch of color and I completed the look with a blouse and tuxedo jacket from H&M.

What did you do over the weekend? Did you watch the game? What are your thoughts on Beyonce’s performance and did you enjoy the performance of Destiny's Child?
