Sponsored Entry: Badra

I didn't have to teach today. I went for a course with hope that once it ends, I'll be able to come up with ways to motivate my lower achieving students. What I didn't expect was that I will leave the room with not only a deeper understanding of why my students are like.... that, but I also left with a realisation aaand a fact given by the presenter, that majority of human beings are almost always negative. Did you know? About 50,000 thoughts pass through our mind everyday and 80% of them are negative thoughts. Come to think about it, it is true. When I board the train to work, I go "gosh, its so crowded urghhh", when I arrive at the bus stop, I assume, "urgh where's the bus? Don't tell me I missed it?" and I guess I could give more and more examples but you wouldn't want to read 50,000 negative thoughts here right? :)

I don't know why I'm writing this but I thought in light of everything happening around the world today, there are good days, and there are bad days. And maybe there's too much negative news occurring right now that our thoughts are clouded with worry, sadness, anger and so much more. Not that I'm saying, we shouldn't, but I think what we can do, and what we may possibly achieve is to concentrate on our happy thoughts. Happy thoughts are fleeting that we tend to only be grateful for a second and let ourselves be infiltrated with unhappy thoughts the next 59. 

Our days are volatile and unpredictable but there's always a choice. To accept things we cannot change? Are our thoughts something we cannot change? Be the boss. Take charge of our thoughts. Think of the simplest happy things. Smile. Be happy.

I don't know how exactly my rambling above is related to my OOTD pictures but hmm come to think about it, think of it like this. Look at this dress here, the color that makes the most of the dress is royal purple. Yes, negative thoughts ARE present, but let it be the turquoise in the dress. Small, tiny, fleeting. As I walk, you see the occasional turquoise, but at least, for most of the time, I'm just a sea of purple :)

In this entry, the dresses are from Badra, www.facebook.com/badrabulan, an online shop on Facebook.
The dress above is called the Triangle Cut Dress and I thought it was really unique, and I especially love the color combination, jewel toned colors! It comes in a variety of colors too :)

The second dress is this sweet ribbon dress with hidden buttons which is really awesome for breastfeeding mothers. Comes in a variety of colors as well and up to size XL!

Apart from dresses, Badra also sells nice and unique clothing pieces from Ethnic Print Satin Skirt to Ikat Pants which really looks good I think when paired with a plain top :)
