Spiritual | Welcome Ramadan

It’s been confirmed that Ramadan will start tomorrow night (first fast on Thursday). Im excited for Ramadan this year as with every year because Allah knows how much I need the spiritual uplift to kickstart me into good habits again. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t quite apprehensive as well this year. 

Last year was my first Ramadan with a newborn, this year it’s with a teething, fussy eating, tantrum throwing 1 year old (whoever said newborns are hard work lied, it gets harder as they start to understand more, test their boundaries more and start to move around more). I spent the whole day cleaning and doing laundry so it’s one less thing to do as we go into Ramadan. 

My goals this year are pretty basic, to pray on time every time, recite as much Quran as possible, to only expose my daughter to Islamically beneficial entertainment (songs, books, toys & cartoons) and to practice patience (any parents of babies/toddlers will tell you how patience wears thin). I kept it simple but realistic and achievable, anything more I got out of this month will be a bonus and I won’t be disappointed if I find I can’t do as much as I have been able to do in the past.

I won’t be able to go to the mosque for taraweeh because I have a baby, but I’m hoping I don’t miss out on the spiritual benefits of this month, I pray it doesn’t just pass me by and I can make the most of it.

To all my readers...Ramadan Kareem x

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
