Farewell…for now

Hi Blogging buddies :o)

Just wanted to pop in quickly to tell you all that I shall not be blogging at all in 3 weeks. Yes I am very gutted but it is near to impossible to blog in these 3 weeks! The reason for that is because me and my parents are going away on a Pilgrimage, also known as Hajj. In Saudi Arabia, where we will be performing Hajj, I will not have any access to a laptop. The laptop I use to blog with will be left at home as well as my camera. I promise to continue blogging as soon as I come back! I have a list of ideas and lookbooks. Plus I love winter so creating winter makeup looks is definitely something I am aiming to do!

See you next month! xoxoxo

Fruity Kale Smoothie

Hi Lovelies!

Hope you are all having a great Saturday so far. I have been up since 6am :o/ Had an early morning shift at the hospital, then took 2 buses home then again took 2 buses to go to Fort Kinniard, which is a shopping centre place in Edinburgh. Luckily in the morning I whizzed up some smoothie which fuelled me up till lunch time! Wanna learn this simple, sweet and healthy recipe..?? Lets get started.

Ingredients

  • Handful of Kale
  • Half a banana chopped
  • Handful of Strawberries
  • Half an apple sliced
  • Quarter of a lemon
  • Teaspoon of Chia Seeds
  • 2 glasses of water

 

And obviously a blender to blend it all up ;o)

Put everything in a blender and whizz away! Remember you can swap any of the fruits for a fruit of your preference and increase or decrease the quantity :o)

Happy blending! xoxo

Neutral Eyes and NO lipstick?!

Hi Guys! I hope you are all having a great day so far!

Last week me and my friend went out for lunch to Gourmet Burger. Since I have already mentioned where we went to I shall also say that Gourmet Burger food is just delicious. They have a variety of burgers, sides and the chicken is halal! So if you are ever in George Street for lunch, do check them out!

Now let’s get to the makeup part :o) I chose very neutral eyes with a pop of shimmer in the inner corners of my eye. Surprisingly I didn’t feel like wearing lipstick….whoever knows me personally knows that I am a hardcore lipstick addict! Instead I just applied a thin layer of lip balm and rocked my natural lip colour. My outfit and hijab style was very Arabian inspired. Recently I have been loving wavy dresses and messy but not so messy hijab. You know the effortless and elegant look!

This dress was purchased from the Edinburgh Mela. I love the net lacy detailing across the neck and arms. The colour of this dress is a stunning cranberry shade-perfect for Fall/Autumn.

My eye make up was super simple. I patted gold eyeshadow on my lid and with a blending brush I defined my crease with brown eyeshadow. Even though it was a simple eye, I kept on building up the crease with different shades of brown for a more smokey look. In my waterline I applied white eyeliner and smudged out my lower lash line with dark brown eyeshadow. In my inner corner I gave a pop of colour which was a shimmery white colour. Obviously I gave myself a winged liner, topped with mascara and voila!
