Confessions | Troublesome Twins and a Bossy Big Cousin

Dedicated to the twins- May Allah bless you both with the best in this life and the next =)

Yesterday my two little (now not so little) twin cousins turned 20 mashaAllah so I thought it was about time I shared a little confession about an event that took place in our childhood....yes, Tahrema you know whats coming...

I was a little rebel when I was younger and quite bossy too (all my siblings & cousins will say that I still am but don't listen to them) My cousins and I pretty much grew up together like sisters, we lived with our extended family in the same house, we went to the same school and same Islamic school.

Once after we had moved into our own separate houses we were about 6 or 7 and me and my mum were at my cousins house. My aunt has this chicken shaped egg holder and for some dumb reason I decided it would be fun to try and juggle with the eggs inside it. So we did and I dropped an egg and it cracked on the floor. The twins mum (my aunt) came into the kitchen and started shouting while Tahrema (one of the twins tried to clean it up), my aunt asked us who did it and I blamed it on Tahrema it went more like "It was Tahrema, she dropped the egg, didn't she Nazifa (the other twin)?"
Nazifa probably fearing for her life and just trying to be 'friends' with her older cousin (as you do) agreed with me and we both ended up blaming it on Tahrema and walking away.

I know it's really bad, I'm sure there are worse things that we've done but this is one you keep reminding me of Tahrema so I had to share it. I would just like to end by saying I'm sorry I was a such spoilt brat xD

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

10 tips for your online hijab company

Assalaamu alaikum all! I have been having idea's about this post for a while but just didn't how to get my thoughts together so I'm not sure if this will be any good but here it goes anyway! So I don't run an online business of my own, I don't have a marketing degree nor am I an expert in running businesses but I've done my fair share of online shopping and have done reviews for online companies so I will give some tips from a consumer point of view inshaAllah, but please remember these are merely my views and not guaranteed to work Tip 1: Be Unique Do your research and check out other companies out there.

Hijab Style's To Suit Your Face Shape

So you're trying to follow a hijab tutorial but your hijab just doesn't look like the person doing the tutorial, you get frustrated because you can't get it right. Well to be honest I don't think it's so much you getting it wrong, it may just be that the hijab style being demonstrated looks better on the person doing the tutorial due to the shape of that person's face. Just like when you need to get a haircut, when styling your hijab, you have to consider the shape of your face. I've had many people tell me that hijab doesn't 'suit' them because their face is too round, or their cheeks are too chubby, which is the reason why they don't wear hijab, in my opinion hijab suits everyone, you just have to figure out how to wear it to suit you. Contrary to what many think, hijab wasn't prescribed to make you look 'ugly' it is to make you look modest. In this post I have tried to look at some face shapes and find some hijab style i
