Eid henna by the beaut @lawsoniaarts today. She’s raising money for @alisharah so we killed two birds with one stone by booking her for our Eid henna. Guys she’s crazy talented at what she does mashaAllah so make sure you book her for your upcoming events! #henna #eidhenna #hennatattoo #mehndi #mehndidesigns #hennadesigns #hennart #hennainspiration
My second post on @larocheposayuki because it’s that amazing. I used it for the first time in January and have since repurchased the effaclar duo but this time with SPF30. The original was good but felt too dry even on my oily skin, after putting it on, my skin felt like I hadn’t worn any moisturiser (so many times I had gone downstairs and though ‘oh I forgot to cream my face’). This one with SPF 30 is sooooo much better. It’s more moisturising but with the same anti-blemish action. I don’t know about you guys but fasting has actually been good to my skin (maybe because I’m not eating crappy food and eating more fruit and veg 🤔 who knows). But this cream is definitely working really well on my skin Alhamdulillah. I would highly recommend this if you have problem skin. #effaclarduo #effaclarduoplus #effaclarduospf30 #larocheposay @larocheposayusa @larocheposay #acneproneskin #acneproducts #problemskin #blemishproneskin #oilyskin #skincare #skincaretips #skincareproducts #skincareroutine
Coming up to 5 years this August and I have no idea where the time has gone. Here are some tips on how I think we survived, because let’s be honest sometimes it is just 2 people trying to survive being with each other. 1- When one of you is fire the other should be water. I’ll be the first to admit one of my flaws is being stubborn and getting upset or angry quickly. I can imagine how bad things could get if my husband wasn’t the total opposite. It’s really important to remember when one of you is angry or shouting the other should try to remain calm to diffuse the situation. Either keep quiet or walk away. But always always come back to the situation when tensions have calmed and discuss it to get to the bottom of it and move on. Worst thing you can do is ignore the problems in your marriage, they will fester and keep coming up again and again 2- Forgiveness. No human is perfect, you both have flaws and you’ll both make mistakes. Be the first to apologise or forgive. No marriage will survive into a happy and healthy relationship if one or both of you keep a tally of mistakes or refuse to forgive mistakes. 3- Show appreciation & respect. It makes a world of difference when you show your spouse how much you value you them as a person. Whether that’s through words or actions always try to show how you feel. After a while the please and thank you’s disappear as you become really comfortable with each other, almost like those words go without saying. But a simple thank you shows that you aren’t taking the other for granted and you see the efforts they put in to make the relationship work. 4- Remember the good times. When things get tough it’s easy to say ‘you never...’ or ‘you always...’ but try to remember the reasons why you love him/her, these reasons should help compensate for your spouses shortcomings. Remember why you got married and the good things they’ve done for you or made you feel. Continued in comments...
As I’ve grown I’ve learnt that not everything needs to turn into an argument. Not every situation needs me to get upset or angry because ‘it isn’t fair’. Sometimes you just have to let it go for your own peace of mind if nothing else. And remember that Allah sees everything, you just keep doing what you’re doing, not to please others but for the sake of Allah...your reward is with Him. #thoughtoftheday
Gifted ourselves a @qurancube after seeing it on @kianaalauntra instastories at the beginning of Ramadan. Honestly the best thing I’ve bought and so worth it. It’s crazy how much has been packed into this product, it’s a light, a clock, Adhan clock, contains 114 Surah’s by various reciters as well as translation of the Quran in English and Urdu, Du’as, Tafseer, Hifdh, Nasheeds, Ruqya to name a few! I highly recommend this as a gift for your loved ones or even for yourself. #ramadan #quran #quranrecitation #qurancube #eidgift #monthofquran

‘...A diamond in the rough...’ >>>Swipe for swatch>>> So this comes up as a ‘powder blush’ on the Mac website and says it can be used as a contour or bronzer on light-medium skin tones and a blush on darker skin tones which is incredibly confusing because looking at it we’d all agree this is definitely a bronzer. Ngl I feel like they put that there in a bid to sound inclusive after the backlash they received when they first previewed it due to the lack of inclusivity for all skin tones. However I do believe it would be almost impossible to create just one universal bronzer to suit all skin tones. It may work as a contour but I do feel it’s a bit too warm toned to be used on lighter skin as a contour, I don’t think it’ll show up well on deeper skin tones either, it may work as a blusher idk 🤷🏻♀️. But for my medium/tan/olive south Asian skin tone it’s perfect to use as a bronzer/contour and add warmth to the skin. I absolutely love the colour and it’s a huge pan so I know it’ll last for ages. The packaging as with everything in this collection is stunning. I was very close to getting the highlight as well but I don’t get much use out of the highlights I already own and I’m actually not a huge fan of highlight either....I definitely just wanted it because it looked pretty. Would recommend this for medium to deep-tanned skin tones in a heartbeat. For everyone else I would suggest you swatch it in store for yourself before buying. @maccosmeticsuk #aladdin #disney #disneyaladdin #macxaladdin #makeup #makeupaddict #limitededition #jasmine #eyeshadow #lipstick #wakeupandmakeup #swatch #swatcheasy #eyeshadowswatches #rosegold #rosegolddecor #rosegoldmakeup #macaladdin #bronzer #macbronzer #aladdincollectionbymac #aladdinmakeup
‘...I’m like a shooting star I’ve come so far I can’t go back to where I used to be....’ Mac doing what Mac does best...lipsticks! I picked up the two I thought I would wear most and suited my skin tone best. ‘Rajah’ is my absolute favourite I can’t even 🤗 >>>Swipe for swatches>>> They’re creamy and comfortable on the lips...so happy with these...and that packaging 🥰 @maccosmeticsuk #aladdin #disney #disneyaladdin #macxaladdin #makeup #makeupaddict #limitededition #jasmine #eyeshadow #lipstick #wakeupandmakeup #swatch #swatcheasy #eyeshadowswatches #rosegold #rosegolddecor #rosegoldmakeup #macaladdin #aladdincollectionbymac #aladdinmakeup
The Princess Jasmine eyeshadow palette...Swipe for swatches >>> Was excited when I saw the previews for this collection. Wasn’t sure what to make of it when I saw it online but if it’s Aladdin themed I need it in my life. Would have loved to see a turquoise, bright pink, purple and metallic gold. I feel this could have been such an exciting palette but unfortunately I think Mac missed the mark here. The colours are all a bit ‘meh’ and I’m not a huge fan of the frost and lustre finishes of these shadows. As you can see from the swatches it was hard to get colour payoff so you will need to use an eyeshadow primer to try and get the most out of this palette. I don’t own any Mac eyeshadows as my go to’s are Urban Decay and Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes with their buttery texture and amazing pigmentation. I really wanted this palette to be amazing but it just fell a bit flat for me. The swatches on their website are not very realistic in my opinion. What do you think of it? 🧞♀️ @maccosmeticsuk #aladdin #disney #disneyaladdin #macxaladdin #makeup #makeupaddict #limitededition #jasmine #eyeshadow #lipstick #wakeupandmakeup #swatch #swatcheasy #eyeshadowswatches #rosegold #rosegolddecor #rosegoldmakeup #macaladdin #aladdincollectionbymac #aladdinmakeup Huge thanks to @symmetric_beauty for making me these custom swatches, I had a vision and you executed it so well!
Aladdin has got to be my all time favourite Disney cartoon, so to say I was excited about the @maccosmetics collaboration with @disneyaladdin is an understatement. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these! The loose pigment and lipglasses didn’t interest me as much but I would have bought it just for the pretty packaging! What’s your fav Disney cartoon?

Giving ‘The whole brain child’ a little break and giving these books a go over Ramadan during my down time. #books #bookworm #islamicbooks #muslimparenting #muslimparents #islamicbooks #ramadan UPDATE: half way through ‘Children around the Prophet’ (pbuh) by @drheshamalawadi and I’m loving it so far. SubhanAllah making me fall in love with my faith all over again and teaching me how to instil that love in my child. I highly recommend!
There’s really no way to make a doner kebab look good for a photo, but this place deserves to be on my feed. Since hubby found @theottomandoner he can’t stop talking about it. One of the best doner kebabs I’ve had and the burgers taste like McDonald’s Big Mac 🤤 The Ertugrul running theme is pretty cool too...Thank me later 😏 #burger #donerkebab #turkishfood #turkishdoner #foodie @dirilisdizisi #halalfood #halalfoodlondon
Gone through so many changing bags from @bootsuk ones to @cathkidston ... now that she’s a bit bigger and I’ve learnt to stop carrying so much ‘just in case’ I’m loving the @coofit backpack, which isn’t even a changing bag but is the perfect size and has the perfect compartments for all her things. It looks nice, such a reasonable price and good quality too. I got mine off @amazon and I highly recommend. #notanad #amazon #coofit #backpack #babychanging #mumlife #momlife #mumbloggers #mumblogger #babychangingbag
Matilda...#allahummabarik Matilda is actually one of my fav childhood films, I would always pretend to have telekinetic powers like her and wished to have a teacher like Miss Honey. Also I really hope my daughter loves books as much as I did growing up. Getting lost in my own imagination, my escape into another world, nothing else really compares to that. #thewholebrainchild #roalddahl #bookworm #matilda #toddlerfashion
Spring is my favourite season for modest looks. I love layering my clothes and wearing lighter colours. SS19 for me is definitely full of whites and neutrals. What are your go to colours for the upcoming season? #modestfashion #modestclothing #hijabfashion #hijabfashioninspiration #neutrals #neutralstyle
