Playground – I can’t stand cold

causal outfit to wear to the park

If you know me well you’d I can’t stand cold; I don’t just shiver, I shudder. I start getting goose bumps and get chilled to the bone. I’m too sensitive and intolerance to cold. The weather here is really hot but everywhere is fully air conditioned. The only time you get to feel the burning heat is when you take a walk to the bus stop or to your car and yea the bus stops are fully air conditioned too. I’m certainly not built for cold temperature. As much as i’d love to experience and play in the snow I’m not really looking forward to it because of this condition situation – I mean! I wonder how I’d survive in cold countries. It’s so bad that no matter how hot the weather is, I dare not take a bath with cold water cos i’d sneeze till thy kingdom comes… Even with the warm/hot water I still sneeze sometimes. I’m sick of my nose, ears, eyes, bladder – they all feel the impact every damn time I sneeze. #sigh

The weather is so hot everyone needs the AC at 18 degrees. That’s like a death sentence for me; I can’t fathom how everyone seems to like it. Are they super-human? or probably just warm blooded. Most buildings in UAE uses a central AC so there’s pretty much nothing I can do especially at work. It’s more or less majority carries the vote. I literally have no say. I’m down with flu as I write this thanks to the AC at work. At least at home I have little control – luckily the AC is not central, so when the AC in the living room is on I’m in the room and vice versa.

I really hate hot, sunny days but I’d rather sweat than make every one around me uncomfortable with my flu and endless sneezes. Having flu/cold makes me miserable. I cease functioning. I just can’t seem to function in any temperature under 25 degrees. so bad I carry a cashmere everywhere I go and wear a hoodie at home in the summer.
My dad’s remedy is robb in hot water and a towel over your head so you could inhale the steam and robb.. it works when you use our robb or aboniki but the ones here ain’t hot enough. Unfortunately the robb I bought from my trip to Nigeria was seized at the Abuja airport that I should have checked it in instead of leaving it in my handbag. Chai! it pained me ehhh… My mum’s remedy is good old really spicy pepper soup… It does the magic but only for a few days… then the flu is back again.
So right now I’m going to make pepper soup and lemon with ginger tea, get some drugs, chill out, and stop complaining.

For my outfit, I was trying to nail the closest to a Kim k look ‘shirt or jacket handing over your shoulder’ with the army green shirt and the almost not visible chokers. What do you say – Nailed or I have to try harder?
It’s basically a casual look you could wear on a casual day out with friends and family. Coincidentally there was a playground around the corner. I love the colors especially the shade of blue. Been looking for that shade in high waist since forever till I finally laid my hands on this in New look. Although the waist is not high enough but I love it.

So, who else can’t tolerate or is sensitive to the cold? and I’d love to know what other remedy I could use to cure this ‘condition’.

    Haaaayyy! I can totally relate ooo LOL. My friends always tease me that my nose is never dry, I’m always sniffing and shivering, besides the A/C in my office is directly above my seat and my colleagues are always complaining that I keep putting it off. Yeah your parents’ remedies are also mine and they are just temporary sef. I love how casual and sporty your outfits look and yup you nailed it.

    • <cite itemprop="author">Tega Enai</cite>

      Ahh Pele dear. You should take a cashmere or have a permanent jacket in the office… It is well with us.. Thanks dearie

    I live in Minnesota where the temperature gets to minus in the winter. I once thought I was going to die in the cold. Though I had a jacket and boots on, I was literally freezing. Not funny at all!
    Each time I look at you, Tega I see this very assertive woman. I love your style! Those pants and shoes are so clean. Totally nailed it!

    • <cite itemprop="author">Tega Enai</cite>

      Lol I’m always complaining about both right.. But I rather sweat my makeup out than have flu… I can always put the makeup back on. I’d try do more casual looks on the blog going forward. Thanks for reading love

    I laughed so hard when I read you rub was seized at the airport, sorry babe. The best concussion is lemon, ginger and garlic, boil them then add honey, it works like magic! Girl, I just can’t you can’t stand too much cold or too much heat, you need to pick a side honey, choose heat because Nigeria is hot anyways. I love this look so much, it’s so chic because of the Olive blouse and the sports luxe element makes it edgy! Get well soon!!

    • <cite itemprop="author">Tega Enai</cite>

      I’d choose hear any day any time.. I’d try as garlic and honey to my next tea.. I’m so over tho catarrh both nose are blocked literally forcing myself to breath 😢😢😢… Thanks for reading dear. Have a great night
