August Favourites ♥

august 2012 favourites ft revlon lip butter, benefit some kinda gorgeous foundation, witch blemish stick, maybelline eyeliner

Hey there my lovelies! I'm here with my August favourites today. 

♦     Benefit Some Kinda Gorgeous Foundation in Medium - I really like the way this applies and the way it matches my skin perfectly. It blends into my skin like a dream! I've been using this more as a concealer than a foundation though: I hardly ever do a full face unless I know I'm going to be forced into being photographed :P I think I might repurchase this in the full sized version.

♦     Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - I've been using this to do my top liner - it has really good staying power and is a pro at staying on the waterline too. I only do top liner when I know I'm going to be tired at the end of the day because I can wipe it off easily. ;D
Also, a lot of people don't seem to like the brush that comes with this. I personally like it, it's good once you've had some practice with it. :o)

♦     Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie - Ah the infamous lip butters. My younger sister randomly bought a couple for me (she knew I was on a make up ban and that I really wanted to try them, bless her (^__^)). My favourite has to be this one though, it slides on, keeps my lips moisturised, has the perfect amount of colour, and isn't a tube of glitter (unlike *some*, but that's another post for another day)!

♦     Witch Blemish Stick - My skin saviour for the month. When I woke up on Eid day and saw that my face had broken out like crazy, I actually cried, it was that bad. My whole forehead and more than half my cheeks were red with spots. It ruined my whole Eid. I was in a lot of pain and I didn't have a clue as to what had caused me to break out so badly. It was good that we had a quiet Eid at home or I don't know what I would have done.

Anyway, I applied this all over my face, and in a couple of days my whole face was half way back to normal already. By the end of the week, my face had almost cleared up! Of course, I had used up three quarters of the tube already in the process, but you have to remember that I was putting it on my whole face.. It's a good thing I had a couple of backups - this stuff is amazing! You can read my full review here if you like :D

So yeah, that happened. I didn't want to mention it in my Eid post because I wanted it to be a informative post rather than one about my face deciding to go crazy haha.

What products have you been loving this month? ☺

Modestly Stylish: Mustard ☺

Modestly Stylish: Mustard ☺

Well, it's August everyone. I don't think Summer is coming this year. So here's some outfit inspiration to take you from (what we wish was) summer to our reliable old friend Autumn.

I've always thought that mustard is a much more wearable colour than yellow. I've never been able to wear yellow because I'm too shy to wear such a bold colour - it's just not me I suppose >.<

And while I don't ever wear a pair of trousers and a top, I thought I'd throw together a few for the ones that do, along with a selection of different mustard coloured tops - all on sale! Love it! 

What's your favourite Summer-to-Autumn colour? :o)

Organic Surge Gentle Cleansing Lotion and Blissful Daily Moisturiser Review

Organic Surge are a company whose products are formulated without the use of parabens, synthetic perfumes, mineral oils, aggressive foaming agents, artificial colours, sulphates the lot! Instead they are made with natural, organic, cruelty free ingredients, which are good for the skin and for animals - always a bonus in my books.

Today I'll be reviewing one of their cleansers and one of their moisturisers.

organic surge gentle cleansing lotion blissful daily moisturiser

First up, the Gentle Cleansing Lotion*. You get 200ml of cleanser in a bottle that surprisingly feels more expensive than it's £5.19 price tag.

'Gentle Cleansing Lotion cleanses, comforts and hydrates all skin types. This delicate lotion gently sweeps away make-up, dirt and impurities. Enriched with organic rosemary and lemon essential oils and skin calming chamomile, Gentle Cleansing Lotion helps to soothe skin irritation and reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion.'

This cleanser is true to its name. It's very gentle, and does not irritate the skin at all. After I've used it my skin always feels very clean, even more so than my usual Tea Tree Oil cleanser, but without the tightness that comes a long with it.

organic surge gentle cleansing lotion

I don't know about making my complexion more radiant and my skin brighter, but I have not broke out once when I've used this. Usually when I try a new cleanser, no matter how good it is, I tend to get a pimple or two. But I didn't even get one with this. Because of this, I think this cleanser would suit sensitive skin perfectly.

organic surge gentle cleansing lotion

I tend to use a couple of pumps for my whole face, then wipe it off like it tells you to with a cotton pad. Then I wash my face because I'm paranoid about leaving stuff on my face. O.o

Next up is the Blissful Daily Moisturiser*. Retailing at £8.49, it comes in a glass jar filled with 50ml of a soft, rather heavily scented cream.

'Blissful Daily Moisturiser softens, nourishes and rehydrates normal skin. The delicate formula soothes and rehydrates with a quickly-absorbed, lightweight texture. A blend of natural hydrators and antioxidants looks after skin ensuring a healthy, smooth complexion.' 


I'm afraid to say that my skin just didn't want to agree with this one. It didn't absorb into my skin quickly, despite being lightweight and claiming to do so. Even if I exfoliated before hand, it would still cling to dry patches and not sink in, no matter how hard I tried.

organic surge blissful daily moisturiser

Perhaps this is because it's for normal skin, and I have oily/combination skin? I tend to get dry patches around my nose and it would not help their appearance in the slightest. I don't know why it didn't work for me, because I really wanted it to after the success with the cleanser. I guess this moisturiser just wasn't suited to my skin I suppose.

The smell was quite strong too, and would linger afterwards for a long time, so if you don't like strongly scented stuff on your face, then I don't think that this is for you.

Despite the moisturiser not working for me, I can at least say that it was possibly because it was targeted towards a different skin type, and that if you are looking to try it and it is designed for your skin type, don't be deterred by my results. The cleanser on the other hand, I'd recommend it to everyone and wholeheartedly, because it kept my skin in check and didn't aggravate my skin in any way.

Have you tried any Organic Surge products? How have you gotten along with them? ☺

*PR samples, sent to me for consideration. All views are my own, I promise. :o)

Eid Mubarak! ♥

A little late. I know. Eid ul Fitr is over but I had scheduled blogger to publish a blog post about it but clearly it didn't! And now I can't even find it either =/ *puzzled* Well anyhoo! What's done is done. Onto the post!

For anyone who is unfamiliar with 'Eid ul Fitr', I thought I'd give a quick explanation! Eid, means 'festivity' and 'fitr' means 'breaking of the fast'. It is a Muslim holiday which marks the end of our month of fasting - Ramadhan - after the moon has been sighted, and therefore falls on the first day of Shawwal. It is a day that we show gratitude to God the Almighty, the Merciful, and celebrate the end of a good, hard month of fasting!

eid mubarak

We have a special prayer in the morning at the masjid/mosque, which is (depending on who you ask) either obligatory or strongly recommended that we pray. Women however do not have to, but are definitely allowed to if they wish to do so. This prayer can only be made in congregation though, so you would have to get to the masjid nice and early! There is also a sermon at the end, where we ask Allah swt for forgiveness, and to shower His Love and Mercy upon the world. You are not allowed to speak, pray, or walk about whilst the Imaam is doing this - and besides, it's rude anyway so shush :P

We are required to give our Zakat - a fixed portion of our wealth - which is given to charity to the poor and needy before Eid prayer, preferably a couple of days before Eid. This is because if it's given early, it can be sent to the poor early so they can buy things they need but cannot afford. It is one of the five pillars of Islam and is obligatory upon all muslims, just like fasting is.

Because in Islam charity starts at home, we are allowed to give our Zakat to our family. Not our immediate family, not our parents, but extended or distant family who are desperately in need of it. My family back home is from a poor area, but Alhamdulillah they are doing well, so instead we give it to our distant relatives instead, who live in more rural areas.

After Eid prayer, we greet each other with Eid Mubarak and rejoice and celebrate and are told to try and forgive each other for any mistakes we've made against, or any bad things we've done to one another. :-)

In my culture, we call Eid ul Fitr 'Choti Eid' in urdu which translates to 'Little Eid'. Why? Well because Eid ul Fitr is for one day only, and Eid ul Adha (which is in a couple of months) is for three days. I'm Pakistani for anyone who doesn't know, and the language we speak is Urdu! :o)

This Eid, I had a quiet one, stayed at home with my family and ate a lot. Which to be honest, is what we usually do anyway :P but only because we don't have much family in England. We do however Skype with everyone back home or abroad, and call up those who don't have internet! Tis loads of fun catching up! (^__^)

We also wake up early (or stay up all night in this case - we were too used to it from staying up till suhoor!) and cook loads of yummy food to eat and share with our neighbours. The elders give the children gifts, and many give money as a gift, calling it 'Eidie'. I'm just wondering how long it will be until *I* have to start giving out their kind of Eidie.. LOL

I usually take loads of pictures, but this year I had a really bad migraine and couldn't get up till about 12 and was groggy for most of the day :-( or I would have shown you all the food we made and if I was confident enough an outfit of the day. Oh well maybe next Eid! :P

Hope you all had a lovely day those who celebrated it! May Allah swt accept all your hard work and reward your efforts in the holy month of Ramadhan, and may He bless you with happiness, in this life and the next, ameen, thumameen.

And for all of you who don't celebrate Eid, I hope you had a good weekend! :D

Face Mask Fridays: Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Self Heating Sauna Mask

Hey everyone! Hope you're having an awesome day. After purchasing a few face masks (and getting hooked on them) I've decided to start a new series where I review a new mask every Friday.

Today's featured mask is the Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Self Heating Sauna Mask. 
Quite a mouthful, I agree :P

Infused with white clay and zinc, this claims to help keep your skin feeling purified for up to 7 days. Recommended for oily/combination skin types, it is designed to deep cleanse, tighten pores, remove impurities and excess sebum, which can clog pores and lead to breakouts.
Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Self Heating Sauna Mask
It is divided into two 6ml sachets - one for each application - but I find that you can get at least two applications out of each sachet, depending on how thick you layer the mask on.

Its texture is lovely and creamy; not runny in the least. As for the self heating part, when I applied it to my face, I was expecting it to turn really hot because I was thinking of a the word sauna xD
Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Self Heating Sauna Mask
It did however get warm after a few seconds of massaging it in. In terms of temperature, if you breathe onto the back of your hand, that is how warm it tends to get - so nothing too hot or sauna-like!
The warm feeling fades away after a couple of minutes, though.

One thing I've noticed about this is that it doesn't harden like some masks do, and washes off easily. After using it, my skin feels softer, and tauter, but definitely not in an uncomfortable way. I can confirm that it did in fact reduce the shine on my t zone and my face felt less oily than usual for the rest of the day.
Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Self Heating Sauna Mask
In regards to the whole keeping your skin clarified for a week thing, I don't think that that is quite true, but it does make your skin feel cleaner than usual for a couple of days. The clay in the mask draws out the oil quite well, and I think it contributed to my face feeling cleaner for longer.

So if you come across this in your local Superdrug, and you have oily/combination skin, I recommend you pick one up! They're £1.29 at the moment at Superdrug so you won't be wasting a lot of money if it doesn't work for you. 

Have you tried this? Or anything similar? This is the first time I have >.<
Let me know if you'd like me to do more face mask reviews!

Eid Gift Ideas ♥

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, The Merciful.

In Shaa Allah this post finds you in the best of health and Imaan, and that you are all having a good Ramadan!

The Prophet (saw) said:

“Exchange gifts, as that will lead to increasing your love to one another.” 

Now, even though I don't want to think about Ramadan ending, even though it's making me feel really sad just remembering that there are only a few days left of this blessed month, I have decided to put my feelings aside to write up a post on what I think might come in useful for those who may need some last minute ideas and tips on what to give as Eid presents!

First thing you need to do, is to have a budget. Set a budget and buy gifts according to the age and the interest of the people in question. Try to spend your money wisely and on things that the person will use/benefit from.

Seeing as the Holy month of Ramadan is ending and that we are most likely closer to our Deen than we are compared to most of the year, a good gift would be one that would encourage and aid the recipient in their good deeds and Islamic obligations.

In case you're stuck and need some inspiration, here are some suggestions:

- Is the person you are gifting a bookworm? As well as, I recommend for books on various Islamic topics. Topics include biographies, Islam & Science, Women in Islam.. you name it they'll have it!

-   Are you giving the gift to a child? Look online or at your local Islamic store for some Islamic childrens books. A good site to find some is They ship worldwide and shipping is included in the price. They also sell toys and games - I've even seen a Muslim version of Snakes and Ladders!

-   Is it someone who loves music? There are plenty of nasheed artists out there now that do some amazing work. My personal favourite has to be Sami Yusuf - his music helped me come closer to my Deen when i was a teen. My favourite album of his is My Ummah.

Another good idea is to give them something practical, or something that they need. 

For example if it's a uni student, you could give them a gift card for Waterstones/WHSmith/Amazon to buy one of their books for their course. If they're a new hijabi, you could put together a hijabi essentials kit.

If it's someone who travels a lot, you could get them a new bag and stick in some everyday essentials and things that will come in handy - such as hand sanitizer, hand cream, a nice lip balm, a mini first aid kit, a spare phone battery, a pair of sturdy headphones, a cute notebook & pen for jotting down notes, etc. It all depends on the person in question really!

I find that when I get given practical gifts myself, I appreciate them more. It feels like some thought has gone into it - anyone can give a box of chocolates or mithai. But maybe that's just me and my way of thinking about things ☺

Anyhoo, hope I helped anyone stuck for ideas for Eid gifts - or just gifts in general really. If you have any suggestions feel free to comment below - sharing is caring m'dears (^__^)

Witch Blemish Stick Review

When I was younger, and my skin first started playing up, one of the first things I tried was the Witch Blemish Stick. 

It didn't work for me. At all. But that was because it was the only thing I used. I didn't know that I had to wash my face with a certain cleanser or use a certain cream for my face and I hadn't even heard of the term 'exfoliation'. However, if I had known all that back then, I probably would have been using this for years by now, it is that good!

The Witch Blemish Stick contains Witch Hazel extract, a strong antioxidant and astringent, with the latter being vital in the fight against acne in oily/combination skin, and is a popular ingredient in many skincare items.

The product itself matches the blue packaging, but applies clear. It's smell is quite strong but fades away after a couple of minutes on the skin. The packaging is sturdy and the screw-on cap ensures that the lid won't pop off and ruin itself if it falls or the contents of your bag.

'Witch Blemish Stick helps to break down excess oils and fights bacteria that cause spots.'

After using it a few times a day for approximately two weeks, I can confirm wholeheartedly that this is true. Excess oil on my T zone has been massively reduced, and on top of that any redness in that area has been toned down quite significantly - always a bonus in my books; I detest the redness around my nose, it makes me feel very self concious and this has helped combat it very well!

Another thing it claims to do is that it 'gets to work instantly' - and instantly it does! As soon as I apply it to the affected area, my skin feels tingly and even stings a little bit - a sign that it is working, for me atleast. If you have sensitive skin, I'd do a little patch test, and advise you - just like it says on the packaging - to use it with caution.

I find that when applying it to my face, I have to rub it in with my fingers to warm it up a little to make sure it melts completely into my skin. If I just dab it on, it tends to leave my skin flaky and rather tight - not a good look. Trust me on this.. I learnt this the hard way. xD

You can pick up this little beauty at Superdrug for half price (£1.35) at the moment! BargainI recommend you get your hands on it while it's on offer, you won't regret it! (^__^)

Spotlight: INKhandcrafted on Etsy

Hey everyone! Hope you're doing well and your week is going swimmingly. Today, I thought I'd share with you a fellow sisters Etsy shop. 

Hailing from Georgia, USA, Ikhlas and Kawthar are two sisters who have had a passion for crocheting, and sewing & drawing respectively since they were young, and once they were old enough, they decided to share with the world their beautiful hand crafted creations by selling them on Etsy.

Here are a few of my favourites..

'These sophisticated tea party inspired straight pins will add simple yet strong elegance to any scarf, hijab, hat, sewing or quilting project.'

How cute are these? Priced at approximately £3.92/$6 USD, these would make a great gift - for yourself or a fellow hijaabi!

'This headband will make you feel like a princess in your own fairy tale. The stunning gold and gray color combination makes this a unique piece. A gauzy gray fabric selected and hand sewn into yoyos. An assortment of beads and charms were affixed onto it to finish off the elegance.'

Handmade and retailing at £10.79/$16.50, I have to say that this really is gorgeous - it'd add the finishing touch to that special outfit. Sigh. If only I hadn't bought my Eid clothes already..

This stretch chain bracelet is simple and elegant. An olive green gemstone charm hangs from it as its singular accent.'

A very accurate description IMHO, very elegant and understated. This little gem is priced at approximately £8.83/$13.50.

'This scarf can be worn long, drape it as a hood, or use it as a beach cover up. Twist it or wrap it around. Dress it up or down. Also great for extra coverage. Made from smooth light weight knit fabric in a raspberry sherbet color, this scarf is great for all climates and all year.'

Although I've never really been drawn to loop/infinity hijaabs, this one sure does look pretty! It is also available in Aqua Mint and Yellow.

I'm always up for helping fellow sisters in the Muslim community with their businesses. I know I'd like the help and signal boost if it were me ☺

Like what you see? Want to order something, but unsure if they can ship to where you live? For further details, you can follow & @reply them on Twitter, like their Facebook page, and also view their Etsy profile here

Minty Madness: Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Toothpaste

I know what you're thinking. Mary.. are you feeling alright? You're blogging about.. toothpaste? Either you're running out of things to blog about or this is a sponsored post.. 

Well, it's neither. Well.. it's definitely not the latter. xD

Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Toothpaste

..but seriously. This stuff is amazing. You know when you've been fasting for long hours, and your mouth gets a little bit plaque-y and also really blarghhhhh-ey (technical term :P)? No? Just me?

Well mine does, and I hate it. When I'm hungry, I don't talk much at all, and that results in my mouth feeling and tasting kind of er.. unpleasant. Which sucks to be honest, because I don't want the person I'm talking to to be feeling nauseous because of my stinky breath. >.<

Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Toothpaste

 When I saw this in Bodycare for 99p, I picked it up because I'd been wanting to try a whitening toothpaste, and although I haven't seen much of a change in the whiteness of my teeth (I've only been using it for about a week or so), I have noticed that this leaves my mouth feeling squeaky clean far longer than my usual toothpaste Colgate ever has. Ever!

On the plaque front, I can honestly say that I only start feeling as though I have some plaque on my teeth after a good 10/11 hours. That's a really long time! Although I'm assuming it would be a couple of hours less if I were to be eating during the day, but still.

Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Toothpaste

It also leaves my tongue feeling clean, and even my gums feeling fresh! If that's even possible. Maybe it's just me who notices these things. :P I can also confirm that any bad breath caused by fasting has been significantly reduced (cheers for the info, baby brother.. LOL).

The taste is kind of unusual for a toothpaste. It tastes like Lockets but without the honey and mixed with mint. Not sure if I like it to be honest but I don't actually mind because the benefits outweigh this one wee little thing. (^__^)

So yeah.. there's my Minty Madness post for this week! I just had to share it - what can I say, I really am loving this stuff. xD
Till next time, stay beautiful my lovelies! xo

Sale Picks: AX Paris

Sale Picks: AX Paris

AX Paris Chiffon Plain Skater Dress - £19.99    AX Paris strapless maxi dress in Orange and Stone - £12    AX Paris Tribal Print Top -  £7.99    AX Paris Heart Print Sleeveless Shift Dress - £15 

So I was on Polyvore, trying to pull together a muslimah friendly, modest OOTD, and came across a few reasonably priced and rather cute items from AX Paris. I went on their website and found out that they had a sale on! 

Which made me think why not share my picks from the sale? The ones I was drawn to were the ones I thought would be the most modest and versatile, in my opinion.

The plain skater dress could be dressed up or down - either with a leather jacket or a blazer. The maxi's are opaque, and can be used for summer or winter - just change the type of leggings you wear underneath. Plus, the colours will lead you into autumn/winter - always a bonus.

The tribal print top tucked into a navy blue pleated maxi skirt (or a pair of trousers). The heart print shift dress would be good for work. Just whack a blazer on and bam! Smart casual, at the very least.

On a side note, if you know me personally, you will know that navy blue is my favourite colour to wear. I know, I'm really boring when it comes to colour choices. :P 

As you can probably see my preference for the colour has influenced my choice from the sale >.< I can't help it, it's a fail safe colour for me - if I don't know what to wear, I go with blue. Always works for me!

Anyhoo.. moving on from my obsession with blue, I just thought I'd let you all know that they're also doing a free standard delivery offer for all orders over £45 for the UK and over £60 for Europe. Standard delivery is £2.95 for UK mainland, £5.95 for Northern & Southern Ireland, and £5.95 for Europe. 

For the lovelies in the USA, you get free shipping for orders over $50! Pretty good considering there's a lot of good things on offer at the moment. 

Has anything caught your eye from the AX Paris sale?

The Virtues of Iftaar/Iftaari

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

In Shaa Allah you're having a lovely day ☺ Todays topic is on the virtues of Iftaar! 

Just as there are great blessings in the meal taken before beginning our fasts, likewise Iftaar (i.e. the breaking of the fast) has its own unique blessings. Hadhrat Umar (ra) narrates that the Prophet (PBUH) said:

'Not a single prayer made by a fasting person at the time of breaking fast is rejected'
(Ibn Majah)

SubhaanAllah, God is so Merciful! Truly, we are a blessed Ummah to be granted such a thing. Make the most of it - ask Allah swt for His Pardon, and surely He will forgive you :-)

Another example of how generous Allah swt is, is in the following Hadith; where Zaid ibn Khalid Juhni related that the Prophet (PBUH) said:

'He who provides for the breaking of the Siyam of another person earns the same merit as the one who was observing Siyam without diminishing in any way the reward of the latter.'

 So if you help prepare and give food to a fasting person to open their fast with, you get the same amount of reward as they do, without the reward of the fasting person being reduced. So all the more incentive for you to help your mum prepare food for Iftaar! Haha :D

Timing is also very important when it comes to breaking our fast so when the sun has begun to set, we should hasten to open our fasts, as Abu Hurayrah narrates that the holy Prophet (PBUH) said

'Allah, Mighty and Majestic said, 'The most beloved of my servants in my sight are those who hasten when breaking their fast.'

So loving is He, that Allah swt does not want you to prolong your hunger and thirst any longer than necessary. Alhamdulillah. :-) With regards to the sunnah of breaking our fasts, the Messenger (PBUH) said:

'When one of you breaks his fast he should do so with dates for they provide blessing, but if he cannot get any he should break his fast with water for it is purifying.'

We also know that dates have many health benefits too. The flesh of the date is soft, easily digestible, and filled with simple sugars such as dextrose and fructose, which when eaten helps replenish your energy quickly and revitalise your body ASAP. This is especially beneficial for when you have been fasting all day and need a quick pick me up before evening prayer.

SubhaanAllah, we can see that there is logic behind everything in Islam - and that's what I love about it! I hope I've helped you in some way or another today, In Shaa Allah. Don't forget to share this with your friends and pass it on to others ☺

Everything good in this post is from Allah swt, and any & all mistakes are mine.
