Beauty Review | Foundations 2012-2013

Salaam girls! Today I shall be reviewing and comparing NARS' 'Sheer Matte', Mac's 'Studio Fix Fluid', Estee Lauder's 'Double Wear' and Artist of Makeup's 'Flawless HD' Now before I start you should know, I'm not a professional make-up artist, beauty blogger or a make up expert, all of the info in this post are just my personal views and opinions on things I have bought and used over the last year/year and half. My skin is oily/combination so all of these foundations are more suited to that type of skin. In the NARS foundation I'm the shade S yracuse , in MAC I am shade NC40 , in Estee Lauder Double Wear I am the shade Honey Bronze and in Artist of Make I'm shade 40 . For all of the foundations except Artist of Makeup I was matched by a consultant at the stores which I bought them from, however, because Artist of Makeup is only sold online I had to follow the comparison to MAC shades given by Zukreat herself

OOTD | Mehndi Bridesmaids

At the beginning of December my cousin got married, it was the happiest, most stressful, the most fun, the most exhausting time ever! Today I thought I'd share a few pictures from her mehndi. It was a small thing with just close family and friends but it was an amazing night spending time with all our loved ones. That's me in the gold hijab from Pearl Daisy....could you guess the colour scheme?

They had a stall at the event and I had a chance to speak to the rep's and get an idea of what these products were all about.

OOTD | Eid Al-Adha '13

Eid was last Tuesday so I thought I would share an outfit of the day post with you (= The dress & bangles are from shops in East London, the pink hijab from an online store which I can't remember the name of...(sorry not very helpful I know)...and the embellishment on my scarf came with a dress made by Maleka Abayaz. And that's it was your Eid?

Review | The Halal Food Festival 2013- I am a Haloodie! 3/3

Salaam all! This will probably be my final piece for my coverage of the Halal Food Festival....if you still don't know what it is or would like to know more about it please see part 1 here (click the word 'here') and part 2 here . If you're an anti halal food person or whatever, please don't waste your time commenting with your ignorant views on Muslims or halal food because they wont be published. Thank You =) Warning: This is an image heavy post. So I went to the halal food festival at the London Excel on Sunday the 29th of September, which was the last day of the 3 day event and I actually had a really good time. Now I'm not saying this because I got a press pass (because I did also purchase a ticket for my aunt) but because I honestly did really enjoy the day Alhamdulillah. This event was all over social media, the TV and posters at bus stops etc etc and created a big hype. It's the first event of its kind in the UK which drew the attention of
