I've been a lot more consistent about posting my outfits throughout the week so I'll start having a monthly lookbook on here. I would like to throw how out salty I am that Texas got hot as hell out of nowhere—it's been in the 80's for almost two weeks now...Read More
Imagine what it'd be like to only be able to speak to God during specific times throughout the day, or even the week. What if God only allowed our prayers to be heard on Tuesdays from 4–4:15pm? That any other time you'd call to Him or ask for guidance, He wouldn't be listening.Read More
Today, I was asked on Twitter: "Do you have any advice for feeling alone even though you have a group of friends? I struggle with that at uni, its a long story." It spoke to me because I had that feeling for a long time growing up, especially in my college years. I had friends around all the time.Read More
We looked at a weather map & just chose a state with warm(ish) temperatures considering it was the end of December. We landed on Arizona! I'd been dying to see the US southwest ever since I saw pics of my friend in New Mexico. I really just wanted to see a huge cactus honestly...Read More
Well damn. 2016 went out QUICK. It was definitely a year of change for me, mostly with my career and life goals. I'm literally nowhere near where I thought I wanted to be in the beginning of 2016—in a good way though alhamdulillah.Read More
I ran into a bunch of modestly styled kid outfits (all japanese-based accounts because the fashion over in japan is sick honestly) & the images are making me so excited to have kids one day & be able to dress them modestly...Read More
It's incredible how lazy & self-deluted we humans can be to the truth of our relationship with God. We complain & complain when we're not feeling that our bond with God is strong. We complain that we can't seem to find the truth behind the things He has asked of us...Read More
Everyone has their own opinions and unique ways of thinking, but not everyone knows how to deal with them. If I think the sky is light blue and you think it's cerulean, it's easier for me to just hate you for not believing what I believe and to simply leave it at that...Read More
Alia & I intended to go for a shoot out in downtown Fort Worth at the Modern Art Museum—unfortunately we procrastinated 'til the last minute to head out & ended up not making it there until right after the sunset...Read More
My thoughts on the topic of interracial marriage & how it plays in religion versus culture.Read More
I'll be posting monthly picks of modest clothing that I find for both girls & guys. I know it's hard to find clothing that conforms to a conservative lifestyle, especially for Muslim girls. But hopefully these will help! Most of this month's are from Zara...Read More
It's not easy to always have strong faith. In fact, we weren't created to constantly feel that bond with our Creator. But that's the challenge. That's the test of this life. Here are some tips on how I help lessen the distance I sometimes feel between me & my beautiful God...Read More
I've recently adapted the idea of 'minimalism' into my living environment—everything from my room, the living room, to my cube at work. Basically, declutter. If I don't use it daily, it's stored in a drawer or somewhere in a closet. For me, a cluttered area emphasizes a cluttered mind.Read More
A few weeks ago, I got my wisdom teeth removed & thank God they've healed over really well, but I occasionally feel soreness in the back of my throat because of it. So I've been drinking tea a lot more than I usually do, just to ease the soreness a bit.Read More
I've always had this fear of not being in full control of my body & mind. Not being able to make conscious decisions for myself because I'm not in my right state of mind. I think it initially rooted from my faith. I can't quote exactly but I just remember as a kid learning that we shouldn't put ourselves in situations where we're not in our proper state of mind...Read More
I usually don't feel much when I hear normal music, because I know how much better I feel listening to music about my faith, or God. It has so much more sentiment. Here are some albums of Islamic music that I've been listening to for years now...Read More
Under the style of modesty, one sub-style I've seen a lot of & have grown a huge love for is the "modest tomboy." Rather than wearing a flowy dress & tailored top, they wear loose sweaters & really baggy pants—often times, actual men's pants. I kind of see it as continuation of the "boyfriend jeans" idea...Read More
Something I read more into recently was the idea of free-will in Islam. That concept never crossed my mind because I just assumed all creations of God were like us, born with the ability to choose between right and wrong. But I discovered the fact that angels don't have that right...Read More
