For anyone that hasn’t stumbled across Universal Yums, it is a monthly subscription box which promises yummy snacks from all around the world. Each month, a country is featured and you can opt in for one of two boxes – Yum Box (6+ snacks) or Yum Yum box (12+ snacks).… More
If you pay attention to your recommendations or what’s trending on Netflix, you may have come across Kidnap (2017). On a bored dreary evening, the synopsis peaked my interest and I thought I would dedicate 1hr 35 mins to some downtime and watch this.
Karla Dyson is a … More
I know what you’re thinking….the post is four years late *facepalm* but there were some gems in here that I just had to blog about.
So the contents of the box were worth £84.00 but they were selling the collection for £40, a steal considering it contained:

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu!
So recently I blogged about The Pendulum of Happiness, and concluded with nothing in this world being permanent. So if nothing is permanent, and it’s human nature to want and hope for certain things, and we know our fate is already written, therefore … More
It’s been a while since I’ve last blogged (I’m aware I say that in pretty much most blogs!) but I’ve been super duper busy hence the silence. Anyways, I had a few minutes to spare and as it is wedding season I thought I’d share my top tips … More
So as I have previously mentioned, I am on THE (imagine Chandler’s voice) search to complete half my deen in sha Allah. I have tried many avenues in my search, including; the traditional introductions, the scoping out “potentials” at weddings, online matrimonial sites which I aim to also review soon … More
So whilst shopping for a decent eyebrow kit, I became frustrated and resorted to purchasing the above MUA matte eyeshadow. Every eyebrow kit seemed to have wax and a highlighter shade which I’d never use. I find that the wax makes my eyebrows look drawn on by fixing them rigidly … More
This is something that I’ve wanted to share for a while now. With models like Winnie Harlow (bravely) flaunting their Vitiligo, the sad reality is millions of men and women do not have the same platform to be as easily accepted. Now whilst it might sound harsh, and I’m sure … More
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu!

Everyone that knows me will know just how bad my experiences with my cars is. So, not … More
It’s that time again! The lovely girls at Savvy Circle sent me yet another goody to test out! As a hijabi, unfortunately I can’t show you the before and after pictures…but I can honestly say it works! I had heard of this product before but I don’t really tend to … More
So I know it’s not Ramadhan anymore, even Shawwal has passed us by but this post is something very close to my heart. Ramadhan is a beautiful month when everything seems better. Patience is a virtue bestowed upon even the most impatience of people, tranquility is instilled in even the … More
So I recently purchased one of these smoothie makers and I have not looked back. Being the type of person that cannot stomach a breakfast until later in the morning, I thought I’d try making smoothies which are easier on the stomach, will keep me full, increase my fruit and … More

As a Savvy Circle member, I was privileged enough to take part in a project about the Viakal Limescale Remover. I was super excited, not just because I was intrigued by the product, but also because it was my first time ever to take part in a project of this … More

Firstly I’d like to start this post off by saying that this post is not meant to be read in an Islamic context, but more as a tourist. Alhamdullilah … More
Firstly, I can safely say that the fuss is all necessary. I have been privileged enough to hold the Blackberry Z10 (pronounced zee 10) in my hands at the Blackberry 10 launch. Re-designed, Re-engineered and Re-invented it certainly is:)
Without sounding all gushy, the phone is so smooth and spectacular. … More
I know I haven’t blogged in a LONG time but believe me I have been itching to! I have thought about so many things that I wanted to share with you guys but unfortunately I haven’t had the time to sit and type :(.

This is a very quick blog post about something that is quite relevant to me.
From a young age, unfortunately, I haven’t been able to read in Arabic as fluently as I would like and often find myself stumbling and stuttering which results to me taking a long time to … More
One of my biggest fears is the punishment of the grave (azaab). I haven’t read/heard/seen much in relation to this, mainly because I am so scared to know more and I guess in a sense I feel cushioned by my lack of knowledge. The little I do know however has … More
We all endeavor to pray five times daily and in sha Allah pray that we get to visit the Holy Kab’ah at least once during our stay on this Earth. Unfortunately, the sad reality is many people don’t get the opportunity to perform Hajj. From those that are fortunate enough … More
According to many scholars, itikaaf merely means remaining somewhere. Usually, the “somewhere refers to the mosque for men and a designated place within the home for women.
I’tikaf in the month of Ramadan is a Sunnat-e-Kafaya. It means if one person within the community performs it then all will be … More
I recently attended the BlackBerry 10 Jam World Tour in London and I have nothing to say other than I am uber (does anyone use that word anymore?!) excited about the upcoming BlackBerry 10. The opening video featuring Alec Saunders as the lead singer resembled a bunch of Dads in … More
Ok so I’m not writing this blog as a techno geek that I am but as an avid user of the internet on my mobile. While i disagree with having the phone stuck to your hand every second of the day, I do believe that it has it’s uses!

Ok, so I haven’t blogged in a long time, so I thought I’d do a quick one on my favourite mascara (as the title suggests!)
So, I hold my hands up that I was clueless about make-up when I brought my first mascara. The reason I chose the below mascara, … More
Ma sha Allah we get the Glorious opportunity to repent every single moment of our lives. However, the Sahaabahs (RA) had such a high regard for Jumaah as it was considered to be of a higher value than Eid in the eyes of Rasul-Allah (may Allah bestow peace and … More
Her hair was up in a pony tail,
her favorite dress tied with a bow.
Today was Daddy’s Day at school,
and she couldn’t wait to go.
But her mommy tried to tell her,
that she probably should stay home.
Why the kids might not understand,
if she went to … More
We often take our mums for granted…uttering curses when asked to do something, back-chatting or even raising our voices. Little do we know just how precious our mother is to us, for our final destination lies at her feet. It is narrated in many hadiths that Muhammad (may Allah … More
We consume food and drink every single day but how many of us are following the etiquette of the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him)? So I thought I’d highlight some of my findings and in sha Allah we can slowly incorporate this into … More
So it’s bank holiday weekend and everyone is in a frenzy. Getting ready, packing, traveling etc. I was no different, I was taking a trip up north. I had my hands full with my handbag and all my other little bits and bats so I shoved my phone (iPhone 4) … More
We visit the toilet every single day but how many of us are following the etiquette of the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him)? So I thought I’d highlight some of my findings and in sha Allah we can slowly incorporate this into our … More
Ok so I recently joined Slimming World after failing at every other diet on the planet! I thought I’d write up and share my experiences so far! I know I’m not a svelte size 10 yet, or anywhere near my goal weight for that matter but I think sharing is … More
So it can’t have escaped anyone’s attention that we have been getting some good weather recently (touch wood!) and people in general seem happier.

On my daily commute to work I see many different cyclists. I don’t normally notice them but while I try to be fair and not keep overtaking them, I feel that it is sometimes the safest option.
