Professor's Workshop

As a child all I could think of career wise was of becoming a teacher. Through the years I have taken small steps toward that direction, the last one was getting my Masters in Education. 

Weeks ago I was approached by a local university to conduct a few workshops for professors and as you can imagine I jumped at the opportunity. For weeks I prepared and the day before, as only Murphy's law would have it, I got laringitis and could not utter a word. A visit to the doctor, medicines and hours of silence had me ready for my workshop. Oh, and this is what I wore ;) 

FW in H&M

Same as last year, this year I took some time to check out my local Fashion Week. While this time around I had access to all workshops, events and runways, happens I did not have the time for it. Regardless I did attend a few runway shows however unlike last year, this time around I did not show my underwear (you'll understand if you read last year's FW post. Did you attend any of your local FW events ? 

Shopping anywhere

Sometimes even I amaze myself, I am the type of person who will shop anywhere and this ring is proof.
A few years ago as part of a course in college, I had the opportunity to go for a weekend and stay with a native community in the rainforest. While there, we visited their homes made of bamboo and wood and which mostly look like this, for safety against wild animals and rising waters. These homes had the very basics. There was no privacy, no running water, no electricity, no landline phone, no kitchen or bathroom. So you get the picture. The natural surroundings were amazing, same as the people, they were welcoming and made us feel at home. There I was, in the middle of the forest and while speaking to one of the local gentlemen he showed me a ring he had made from a coin. While I could not understand exactly how it was made, I tried it on and it fit. Right there and then I offered to buy it.  This is proof I'll find something to buy regardless of where I may be.... 
What is the oddest or most unexpected place you've bought something ?
