Review | Zaza's Grill

I used to attend Arabic grammar classes with two of my cousins in East London every Wednesday and after our last lesson last month my cousin and I decided to go and try out a Pakistani restaurant we used to pass all the time called Zaza's grill.

From the outside the restaurant looked quite impressive, very clean, chic and great interior design. We thought it would be expensive judging from the look of the restaurant but after a quick glance at the menu was actually not too bad.

We went inside and were shown to our seats (we didn't book beforehand), as soon as we were seated the waiters brought us the menu's and pretty soon after that brought over poppadoms, a variety of three sauces, water (which we didn't have to pay for) and were offered drinks. We were amazed with the speedy and friendly service.

The only thing I would say I was a little disappointed about was the menu, we went in thinking the specialty of the restaurant was grilled food (hence the name) but realised the dishes were more curry's and Indian cuisines rather than a variety of grilled dishes. The one grilled dish we found on the menu was a mixed grill dish so that's what we ordered. The wait for the food was quite long but I think it seemed longer because it was getting late and we actually had to get home, but the free poppadoms with the sauces kept hunger at bay. Our food came sizzling on the plate and looked deeelish! (take a look for yourself)

We ordered Peshawari nan with the mixed grill and it was also amazing mashaAllah! Sweet and soft just the way it should be (= I honestly cannot fault the food or the service because it really was a nice meal and I would go there again. Was a little disappointed with the drink as I was really thirsty and felt like it wasn't really enough, but overall it was a lovely dinner. After we finished (or couldn't finish) I asked for a box to take home what we couldn't eat and gave it to my mum who also loved it. My cousin even ('accidentally') started walk out with the plate of salad until she realised what she was doing and we both couldn't stop laughing (along with the waiter) LOL but I'll let her off she had a long week.

The restaurant is a family friendly restaurant with 100% halal food (obviously) the atmosphere is really calm and relaxing with a touch of class, it's spacious and would be ideal for dinner with friends as well as bigger parties.

Thank you to the brothers at Zaza's for a great meal!

I Took My Driving Test!

Salaam all, I recently took my practical driving test and I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings of that day with you inshaAllah. On Wednesday the 18th I had my driving test. I had practiced all  I could and now the rest was down to Allah swt. I tried to keep myself calm by telling myself that whatever happens it is Allah's will and if I don't pass then maybe this time I wasn't supposed to. As I stood for Taraweeh that night my heart was pounding as I asked Allah to keep me safe on the road and also for me to pass. After praying I felt a lot calmer and soon enough fell asleep. Woke up for Suhoor, prayed Fajr and tried to go back to sleep. All I could think about was how much I wanted to pass, not because I really want to drive or anything, but just because taking lessons was taking up a lot of my time and money that I could spend on other things. As well as taking up my parents time and my uncle's. I got a couple of hours of sleep and woke up bright and

Review | Unique Hijab's

Assalaamu alaikum! Sorry for going AWOL for a while there, my netbook was down so I couldn't write blog posts and post pictures )= Alhamdulillah it's working now, a BIG JazkaAllah khair to the computer fixer upper. Anyway today I have a review for an amazing hijab company in the states! =D I received 3 scarves from them yesterday, a thin scarf, a crinkle scarf and a diamante jersey scarf, they're all super cool but first I'd like to tell you a little more about the company itself. Unique Hijabs actually started on ebay and then launched it's own website in 2009 their website is: They sell a huge variety of hijabs and accessories such as under scarves, sleeves and brooches. One of the things I liked about this company is something that they've written on their facebook page, which I can actually relate to as I'm sure you can too: Food for thought and Unique Hijab Facts, to help you make your next purchasing decision wisely.

Beauty Review | FW Beauty Skincare

I finally got around to writing up this much requested post on the products I bought from FWBeauty, the reason I haven't written something sooner is because I believe it's important to be using a skincare product for a while before reviewing it, as most skincare products don't give significant results after just one or two uses. I've been following the founders of FW Beauty Fatiha and Yasmine's journey online for a while now and I love seeing how successful they are becoming. They talk about their products with so much passion and confidence that I had to meet them in person and try out their skincare products. If you've been following me on Instagram you'll know that I attended the Muslim Lifestyle Show a few weeks ago and picked up the FW Beauty skincare products that I've been dying to try ever since I saw the glowing reviews. They had everything at a reduced price and I picked up the clear complexion bar, the gold elixir brightening facial
