I used to blog at least four times a week. Now, I barely get to once a week. I am doing the kinds of things I had never done before. There is a constant turbulence.
Okay, let me explain.
N had to go out of country for work. I am here, and not very happy at work. Working on a consultancy/freelance basis, for a start-up, basically means you have to mostly work alone. And that isn’t motivating enough. On top of that, I got unwell. And depressed about N’s departure. I made a decision – to quit. I couldn’t get well in a snap or bring N back before his work finishes. But I could control the third element. And I did.
Did it work? Kind of. I spent days at leisure, watching movies, cooking on a whim and cleaning only when I MUST. Which reminds me, if any of your darlings know of any maid who can come once or twice a week, and do the general cleaning chores, please do forward her details to me.
Anyway. I established a community for fellow fashion and lifestyle bloggers, and I am really excited about it. I have to write about the launch (event coverage), St. Tropez tanning products launch, Sisters’ organic products, review Essentials’ shampoo, conditioner, food cream and mud mask, event review of the fantabulous Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience, etc, etc, etc. On top of it all, I need to find a job that I love. Possibly at a publishing house.
Therefore, I am overwhelmed. I just got done cleaning the whole house, on my own. Ladies and gentlemen, that’s no mean feat. My hands still sting – because I am super new to all the products I got from Carrefour for cleaning. It’s Eid tomorrow. For the first time in my life, I am going to be alone on Eid. It’s… lonely. Thankfully, I will have my day packed and won’t feel too alone. I am going to a friend’s place for lunch (thank you Madiha & Saadi for having me), and then to FASHION FORWARD! I think that has kept me afloat so far. This will be my first experience, and I have heard such great reviews that I can’t wait to be there.
I started with a different idea. I wanted to write about something else altogether. Instead, I rambled. Well, so it be. A girl needs to do what she needs to do.
Time I hit the sack. Or maybe complete my VFDE blog post. Keep looking at the space to find out how my night, eventually, turned out.
