Sorry for the inconsistency in my posts in the past week. I have been very busy with training for a volunteer position and went on a weekend getaway with my friends to the beach side. I am fortunate enough to have this opportunity to go away for a few days to a holiday house that we booked. Our house was located at Rye in Mornington Peninsula. It was definitely very relaxing and it felt good to get away from reality for a couple of days. Our house was very big with 5 bedrooms, a tennis court and even a swimming pool. Although the house was not clean, we all tried to make do with what we had, but it was very hard. It was possibly the worst house I’ve been to in terms of cleanliness. Since getting back from the holiday house I have discovered numerous mosquito bites everywhere. I am so annoyed because I can’t stop scratching! On a positive note, as it is Summer in Australia the weather was spectacular! The beach was beautiful, the water was crystal clear and shallow.
My outfits over the past couple days were very light and simple. I made sure that when I was packing, I included clothing that did not require ironing and was versatile. Shirts are a girls best friend during summer. They are so thin and perfect for a Hijabi (someone who wears a hijab). During Summer, I find it difficult to wear socks so I was basically living in my sandals. Likewise, I try not to carry around a big bag when I am going to do quite a bit of walking. I generally carried around my purse that I mentioned in my Khaki & Floral – OOTD post. It is so light weight and I can pack so much inside. Similarly, I was always wearing sunglasses outside. If you are anything like me, you will start crying every time you look up to the sun if you do not have sunglasses on.
During this holiday I have understood a lot about myself and the strengthening of friendships. Living in the same house with friends will either make you or break you. Thankfully I did not have any mental breakdowns during my break but I certainly improved my friendships. I am extremely thankful for all the supportive and loving friends I have, without them I would not be able to continue with this blog. Thanks to them I have so many amazing ideas for my blog! These girls truly made me feel special with all their supportive words, jokes and kind words.
I love you girls! ❤
I hope you enjoyed this blog post ❤
