International Women’s Day 3.8.18

Who runs the world???? Girls!!!

I can’t imagine a world without the women in my life. From my mother, grandmother, sisters, aunts, besties, etc. Through them I found guidance, perspective and even the bitter truth (we all need a reality check sometimes). They are one of my greatest assets and I’m honored that God bestowed them to me as a gift.

So what better way to celebrate the women in our lives than to commemorate a day for them? Drumroll please…..

Hello my avid readers,

I had a wonderful opportunity of hosting my first event while partnering up with a talented Henna artist ( Mehndi by Maliha), MALA (Muslim American Leadership Alliance), and a delicious honey tasting (courtesy of Heaven’s Honey).

Hot Chocolate Night 01.28.18

Happy Saturday,

Can you believe it is February 😵

Where did time go?

Confession 101 – I have a tendency to write 2017 but I’m getting better 😏

Now back to the topic. I organized a Hot Chocolate Night this past Sunday for my beautiful friends. I was lucky enough to host my event at my friends’ place (Shout out to Asra’a & Fatima). This also happened to fall on the same night as the Grammy’s – more reason to celebrate, right? Before I share pictures, I would like to point out two purchases from amazon that I used for my event. Lets be real – sharing is caring, right?

But back to the topic of Brunch – which I adore 😊. I was lucky to be invited to by my friends (Fatima & Asraa). The brunch was exceptionally special because it involved a gift exchange (kinda like secret Santa). Without further ado……

All About the Details

Hello there,

I have officially embarked on designing my first project. Yayyy me!

My fashion journey began last year when I became interested in designing my own clothes. As a young fashion oriented muslim, I had a difficult time finding apparel that was modest. If I would find a beautiful dress, I would need to adjust it to fit my needs resulting in extra cost for alterations 😔. So, then the thought of designing my own clothes slowly creeped into my small head ☺️.
