Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

For girls, it’s all about accessories. Their love for color and sense of style start to develop at a very tender age; for my daughter, it was at about one-and-a-half years. Her shoe collection is ten times the size of mine (which consists of 4 pairs of shoes, a couple of sandals and a pair of slippers) and she loves her accessories as much as she loves her parents. I try spoiling her and I cannot resist the urge to buy stuff that I think she’ll enjoy wearing/using; at least 70% of my impulse buying results in a purchase for my lovely daughter.

A few days back, we happened to visit a local bazaar, a heaven for my now almost three-year-old Fatima. We came across these really neat bracelets made out of old telephone wires and I couldn’t help myself from buying them for her. Pink’s her favorite color and purple’s mine, and since most of her clothes belong to one of these two color-groups, this purchase was a no-brainer.

Hope these photos can inspire all of us to recycle and possibly ignite a spark of creativity.

Words of Wisdom: Mysteries of the Female Mind

Time flies by so fast: one moment you have this little angel in your arms, barely able to help herself, and the next you’re sneaking up on her while she’s standing at her mom’s dresser trying out the latest lipstick shades. These words of wisdom came to me while I was watching my almost-three-year-old daughter unsuccessfully try on some lipstick and smearing it all over her cheeks.

What is it with females? They can’t wait to grow older when they’re young and get younger when they are old.
