Friday’s Five: Things I learned from my sister

My sister is an inspiration, she’s colorful, deep and lots of fun.  Thank you RJay for teaching me so many wonderful things.

Style! Style! Style!

She is one of the most stylish people I know, she’s not afraid to try new things and experiment with different colors, textures and elements.  She is kind of shopping obsessed and when I lived at home I could always raid her closet for amazing stuff.

Hard work and perseverance.

Dedicated when she is passionate about something beyond my imagination.  She is much more accurate and precise than I would ever dream of being.  She never gives up on people even when most of us have long walked away and written them off.

For fun, work out.

She loves a good work out.  She’ll try new exercise routines as if they were new shoes.

When sad, watch funny movies.

Rjay has this amazing pick me up technique whenever she’s down.  She will watch funny movies or sitcoms back to back until she feels better.  I tried it and it works perfectly.  You can always count on her to come up with a great movie title to cheer you up.


She will buy us presents for no particular reason.  She will buy my mom candles, creams and pajamas for no reason other than she saw them in a shop and thought they would make my mother happy.  She will buy my grandmother handcream or a pair of soft socks because my grandmother loves handcream and gets cold feet in the winter.  She’s sweet like that.  She once bought me play doh because I love the stuff and she remembered when she saw it in a shop and left it on my bed.  She doesn’t do it for any reason other than to make other people happy.

    I love ur sister 😀
    About the style thing, I am desperate for some fashion tips.. it is really hard to get a style outfit that will be conservative at the same time :(

    So if she wears a veil, I would love to read some of her ideas

      She is veiled and she’s actually a very smart dresser not to mention shopper.

          Sisters are the coolest thing. It’s like having a best friend that can’t unfriend you.
