Hi! I'm Shabana. I live in Bahrain. I'm a businesswoman by day and a fitness instructor by night. I believe that dressing up is the easiest way of loving yourself, and this blog is where I journal my outfits and my life. If you'd like to know more, click on the About Me tab on top. I hope you enjoy my blog!

Don't lie

Top, Belt: Mango, Pants: Zara, Shoes: Dorothy Perkins, Earrings: Gifted, Ring: Gold Souk, Bangle: ?
I don't lie, unless it's really needed and will get me out of serious trouble and I know there will be no repercussions. I've always been upfront about anything and everything. To many people, this is refreshing, to others, very annoying.

Last night a friend and I were talking about precisely this: honesty and lies. We both agreed that it's always better to tell the truth, even if you risk upsetting the other person, than whitewashing it and then later risking the other person's trust in you.

For example, once when my mom was on vacation, she called me and told me to get a carpenter to look at an old cupboard in the house, to use the wood to make a new one. My dad and I were in the car when she called. Now I hated this cupboard and wanted to just get rid of it as it was quite old. So I told my mom, "No, I'm not asking the carpenter to come over, because I'm getting rid of the cupboard." My mom being a typical Gemini went on trying to convince me. I being a typical Aquarius kept on saying no.

My dad, seeing me arguing over the phone, said, "Just tell her, ok, yes, fine, we'll get the carpenter to have a look. Then later we'll tell her that the carpenter said the wood was too bad." I said "No. That's lying. I'm not going to lie." And I ended the argument still saying I was throwing the cupboard away.

My dad didn't agree it was 'lying'. But yes, it is lying. And the main thing is, why should I not make my intentions clear to my mom that I will not keep the cupboard? What if I lied like my dad said, then later my mom said the same thing for some other piece of furniture? I'd have 2 options then- Lie again, or come clean about the earlier lie. Both options not good because at some point the lie WILL be exposed, no matter how small, and my mom will lose at least a little bit of trust in me.

This is a small example. I'm sure you can relate this to other such sitches in life. So, don't lie.
And a lie is a lie is a lie.

On a style note, I recently got this top. I love the neckline and the lightness of it.
Enjoy your weekend!
