11 Things About Me

1.   I'll start with an obvious one - I follow the religion named Islam; I am a proud Muslim!
2.   I adore baby animals. Mainly kittens but HAVE YOU SEEN A BABY PENGUIN? *cuteness overload*
3.   Ever since I was a child, I have had this unquenchable thirst for knowledge. I want to know everything. My dad often likes to tell the story of my first visit to the library when I was little un'. I went around touching all the books going 'OMG I WANNA READ THIS ONE! NO WAIT THIS ONE! NO NO THIS ONE!' *peeks excitedly around a huge pile of books*
4.   My signature dish is red kidney bean curry :P
5.   I suffer from intense and frequent migraine attacks. I used to get 7/8 a day, but with some medication it has gotten down to around 4/5. 
6.   I'm afraid of heights but I LOVE rollercoasters!
7.   I love football! I support Liverpool and the Spanish national team (No I'm not a glory supporter - I've supported them since the beginning of the 2008 Euros!).
8.   I've got a penchant for pretty hand held oriental fans. I have quite the collection you know..
9.   I love Ferrero Rochers. Omnomnomnomnom
10.   I love reading books, but hate borrowing them. I like to read at my own leisure, tyvm :P
11.   I love Sudoku!

11 Questions For Me To Answer

These are the eleven questions that the lovely Vanessa set for me:

1. What made you start blogging?
I wanted to share my knowledge on skincare to people I didn't know in person, and also help new muslimahs! Blogging seemed the natural way to do about this, because I read so many blogs anyway >.<

2. If you could only keep one make-up item in your makeup bag, what would it be?
I don't have a makeup bag lol, I never have time to touch up my face in the day/when I'm out. I shall answer anyway! Black gel eye liner. I look dead without it.

3. If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you take?
If I was stranded, that would mean I wasn't prepared! But if I was, then a swiss army knife, a compass, and a book on edible plants! ;D

4. What is your most treasured possession?
My translated Qur'aan e Majeed; it was a 20th birthday gift from a close friend of mine :-) 

5. What do you always order when you eat out?
Samosa chaat! I love the stuff. I can't get enough of it. I could eat it over and over and over and over and well you get the point. LOL.

6. What is something you always splurge your money on?
Apart from stuff that'll help me with my education, I'd say gifts for my nearest and dearest. (^__^)

7. What blog post do you enjoy writing about the most?
Hmm. I'd saaaaaay probably the ones I'm doing right now about Ramadan. Tis my favourite month of the Islamic year!

8. What are your hobbies?
Reading, baking, sewing, watching funny cat videos..

9. Would you change anything about yourself?
I'm always trying to improve myself. So yes. Currently, I'm trying to stop procrastinating as much.
*avoids looking directly at the mountain of ironing left to do*

10. What is your favourite makeup look?
I'm really boring when it comes to makeup looks, because I don't wear it much to be honest! Only on special occasions have I ever had a full face of makeup. But my favourite, everyday look has got to be a slick of eye liner and some tinted lip balm!

11. What would be the first 3 words on your dating profile (if you had one!)
I wouldn't have one :P But if I did, it'd probably just say 'Ask my Dad (first).' LOL

11 Questions For You To Answer!

1.   If there was one type of food/drink you could get a lifetime supply of for free, what would you choose?
2.   What is your most reached for lip product?
3.   Would you rather lose all the chairs in your house or your tables?
4.   What's your favourite fashion trend of the moment?
