Married again on our 1st Anniversary


Our Nikkah & Walima (Islamic marriage) took place in 2014 (see wedding post here) and waited until our 1st anniversary to register the marriage because I wanted an excuse to have another party and wear a white dress. Now hubby just has one date to remember and double the presents every year.

The dress was from an online company Croyance





The registry took place at the town hall. I wore the white lace overcoat from Acacia label on top of my white and gold Croyance dress, the whole look came together and I finally got to wear my version of a white wedding dress.






After the registry at the town hall we organised a little dinner party with close family at Riverside Lounge in north London. Although it was a lovely venue and we were blessed to be with our close family the restaurant itself was a huge let down. They've renamed since then and possibly changed management but the service was terrible and the food was awful. The gajar ka halwa and ice cream looked like vomit and the owners were really rude, we were disappointed to say the least.

Not to let it ruin our day my amazing cousins and sisters surprised us with a cake and we had amazing time with our family.



The best gift of the night was an all expenses paid Umrah trip from my parents. We were both fighting back tears as we opened the envelope to a mock ticket made by my sisters and cousins.


Recently I found out that not many people realise the Nikkah/Islamic wedding does not automatically mean you're legally registered in the UK. It's really important to register your marriage legally to avoid problems in the future. You don't have to have a big ceremony or dress up but make sure you get it done.

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

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

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: www.uniquehijabs.com 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.
