Minimoon in Newquay






For our first anniversary on 2015 I decided to book a staycation (holiday where you don't go abroad). We booked a weekend away to Newquay in Cornwall and had a nice long drive there from London.

I booked us a hotel last minute on booking.com, after reading plenty of reviews online we decided to go for a guest house called Porth Cove Hotel right by the coast. The room was really pretty and the place was cosy like a home away from home. The owners of the hotel were lovely and really welcoming.





Breakfast was included a we went for a vegetarian full English which included a veggie sausage which was actually really nice. All the staff at Porth Cove Hotel made our stay very comfortable.

The views in Cornwall were beautiful, the sand, sea and little bit of sun made us feel like we weren't in England. It was really relaxing and peaceful, I could have just sat on the beach all day.



The sunsets are even more stunning when you escape the hustle and bustle of London and lack of light pollution mean you get stunning views of the night sky.




I really loved our weekend away but hubby wasn't too pleased about the lack of halal food options. Living in London we often take for granted how diverse the city is, when you travel outside London you really appreciate home. We were one of the only brown people holidaying at this part of Newquay and although I felt very comfortable as the locals were all really lovely, hubby felt a bit out of place.

I thought we could live off fish and chips because nothing beats fish and chips at the seaside but the chippy we went into (very kindly) told us they fry their fish and chips in beef fat and that it may not be suitable for a halal diet, we tried a few others but they told us all the chip shops did the same. So we lived off the vegetarian supreme pizza at the local Domino's.

If you're not a big meat eater like my husband and don't mind not having halal food, Newquay is a  lovely place to go, whether as a couple or as a family it's a beautiful part of England you must visit!

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: 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.

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
