MPE Obsessions - August

Better late than never. August is flying by and that's all I'm going to say. It's so hot and now that we're back to normal working hours all I want to do is manage to get to the cooler months so I don't die of a heat-stroke! I'm a white girl, I'm not made for this kind of weather!!

This months obsessions are all about the fall and changes. They are mostly about where I want to be physically (EUROPE) as well as where I'd like to be just generally in my life, with my own home and family. Who knows, right?  I'm keeping my options open and not sure of what's going to happen but no matter what, I promise I'll always keep blogging!

I'm Sorry!

If there are actually people out there reading this then I love you all and I really am so sorry that I have been AWOL, but I have a lot going on in my life. There are things I would love to share with you all but it just isn't time yet and there are things I can share like a busy last 10 days of Ramadan, a hectic Eid, and an exhausting past few days... I am sorry but things will probably stay slow for a bit longer, but I'll be back into the normal swing of things soon!

It's a Flat Party!

How was everyones weekend? I have to admit that mine ended way too quickly and I can't wait until next week and even more for the weekend after... EID! You all know that I'm obsessed with flats, I love heels and think that they definitely have their moments but I am a flats kinda girl. So this Eid it's all about fun, bright flats! 

Do you ever notice yourself going into a purchase rut? Well that's how I feel about my shoes! I love them but I find that I'm always attracted to the same type or style. This fall I'm planning on pushing myself outside of my comfort zone! Let's see how well that turns out and if I actually start rocking some kiss-ass, sky-high heels. It's a possibility!

Ok, ranting aside, these are some flats that I'm obsessed with and want in my closet now.

What I'm Loving ♥

Who else is super busy with Ramadan? It always seems like when you have the energy to get things done you don't have the time to do them only during Ramadan it's the other way around! I have enough time to do things, only I never have the energy to start or see them through. So here is my way of giving you a little something while I get my act together and get a few good posts started!

MPE Obsessions - July

Look at me! I'm all on time and stuff. I am determined to make my blog a priority, no matter what else I have going on! So this months obessesions are all about Ramadan. For all my Muslim followers, you all must be as excited as I am because Ramadan is my favorite time of the year! For my non-Muslim followers, you must be wondering either what the heck Ramadan is or how on earth can I be looking forward to month of fasting!? Well I'm going to answer both questions for you!

Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic lunar calendar  (which basically means that every year our dates change based on the moon) and it is during this month that practicing Muslims fast, that means both food & water, from dawn until the sun sets. I can understand that a lot of you might think that that would be awful and hard on your body but it really isn't. It's mind over matter, I mean how many times have you been so busy that you get into bed and suddenly realize that you haven't eaten? It doesn't hurt you. 

But Ramadan isn't fasting just for the sake of fasting, it has a deeper meaning. Ramadan is a time to reevaluate the way that you are living and either get back on the right path or solidify your place there. It's sort of like we make New Years resolutions and have a month to work on fulfilling those resolutions. But it isn't only about adjusting your own life, it's about coming to terms with others. It is a time of forgiveness where we should try to make peace with people that have wronged us and also to bring your loved ones closer together. Basically, it's about out cleaning up our lives, our thoughts, and our feelings.

So, this is how I see Ramadan, and the reason I love it is because, besides all of that goodness, it has such wonderful family memories. It's like the best Thanksgiving weekend but it lasts a month! You get yummy food that is almost solely for Ramadan and when it's time to eat, all the family gets together and  shares the moment together. That might seem insignificant to some people, but when everyone has their own life and schedule something as simple as sharing a meal at the table is hard to achieve. Also, knowing that all the Muslims around the world are feeling the same way is such a beautiful and touching thing that it is hard not to get somewhat emotional.

Ok so enough about Ramadan, if you have any questions you can always email me (mypinkelephant.kw@gmail.com) and I will be more than happy to answer them! I hope you enjoy this months picks!

She's Blushing

I haven't done a Colorific post in a while and that's because I completely hadn't realized! So this is me remedying that! So I hope that you enjoy this one; BLUSH! It's such a delicate and feminine color, perfect for hot summer days when you don't want to wear the typical white because let's face it, if you're like me, your whites never stay white for long!

MY TIP: Don't limit yourself to one shade, add variety to your wardrobe and give more peachy tones a try!

What I'm Loving ♥

Hello from Jordan! I'm on vacation at the moment, in Amman, for a cousins wedding! There's nothing better than a break from reality and the day to day grind. This is by far my least favorite destination option, I'd rather be somewhere in Europe but beggars can't be choosers so Jordan it is! But all that aside, there's something about travelling that makes me want to go out and buy new things (haha like I need more of an excuse to go shopping right?) 

So these are what my travelling obsessed mind is loving right now! Enjoy and make sure you follow me on Instagram @my_pinkelephant for pictures of my trip!
