Makeover - DIY Persian Lamp

Monday, 22 August 2016


I haven't had these lamps for very long. I bought them on a holiday trip I took to Dubai just before I got married. I fell in love with all of the Persian lamps that seemed to be everywhere whilst we were there. They were super cheap as well compared to if I was going to buy them in London.

Loaf

Tuesday, 16 August 2016


You guys must know by now how much I love interior shop hunting and randomly coming across shops I have never seen before. The excitement of walking in to a new shop and "oohing" and "aahhing" all the quirky new ideas and concepts is what I do best. This a post dedicated to a store I found that had recently opened in Notting Hill.

OOTD For A Ladies Night Out

Tuesday, 2 August 2016


Not long ago, I attended a sisters gala called Celebrate Us. It was a ladies only event so for someone like me, who wears an Abaya, it meant I could wear what I want! The dress code was to dress up so everyone came in dresses and beautiful gowns. (If you'd like to read about how the event went, I recently wrote a post on it which you can read about here.) I couldn't show you guys any pictures of me in my dress on the actual night so I thought I'd make a separate post of my outfit details so you guys can get an idea. Here's a little OOTD of what a wore.

Pink Flowers Are For Summer

Wednesday, 20 July 2016


I'm not much of a pink lover. I never have been. But there seems to be something about this summer which has really bought out my feminine side and my love for pink or shall I say Rose Quartz. Maybe it's because it's one of the colours of the year. (I love how we've had options this year.) I see myself steering more towards rose quartz maybe because I'm the only female in my household so making a girly statement with colour is what I seem to be doing. Whatever the reason, I'm going to make the most of my love for pink!

Halal Goodies

Monday, 18 July 2016



A Lovely friend of mine gifted me with a very thoughtful gift this Eid which I absolutely loved. Some Halal Goodies! They came in the post a day before Eid but I obviously waited until Eid day to open it just to make it feel that little bit more special. You can imagine the unwrapping of the gift was full of a lot of excitement as I didn't know exactly what it was that she had bought.

A New Cushion Addition

Thursday, 14 July 2016

A new addition to my cushion collection. This one is really special though because it's my DIY knitted cushion! I always feel a little proud of myself for using something I have made as an addition to my decor. Probably because it's  lovely to know that something I have made is actually usable. And I guess another reason is the fact that you can't get it anywhere else so there's never that question of whether someone else has the exact same thing!
