11 Things About Me

1.   I love tea. In fact, I love it so much hat have to stop myself from making a cuppa every time I enter the kitchen. xD
2.   I used to be a secret Twihard. I still am a bit, but I'm much less into Twilight now than I was back then lol. The thing about Twilight is that yes it was poorly written, and yes Bella is an utter pain in the neck (I'm so witty :P), but honestly.. I think Stephenie Meyer had a good idea. It was just poorly executed. I sometimes wonder how it would have turned out if J. K. Rowling had come up with the idea.. you can bet your bottom dollar it would have been amazing!
3.   I am of Pakistani descent, but I tend to get confused with people of other ethnicities/races. I've had people come up to me and ask me things in arabic or turkish, usually asking for directions at uni and I just look at them.. flummoxed. Makes me feel bad that I can't help them xD
4.   I like to think I used to be quite good at basketball, despite being quite short. I really should start playing again..
5.   I love Star Trek! I started watching TV again when I was flicking through the channels and saw that the first ever episode of the original series was on  - they've been digitally remastered and everything!
6.   Although my first language is English, I am fluent in Urdu, and can understand Hindi, Potwari, and Punjabi.
7.   One of my favourite games to play when I was younger was Spyro!
8.   I love cake rusks. NOM.
9.   I love giving gifts. It makes me happy knowing I've made someone else happy!
10.   I am very shy in person. I get over it eventually, and I'm good at hiding it - I do this thing where I act like I'm confident, even though on the inside I'm dying of shyness.. I'm odd I know. :P
11. This took me a really long time to write up. I find it hard to talk about myself lol >.<

Onto the answers to Hannahs questions..

1. What is your favourite post on my blog?!
Your 'OOTD: Double Denim.. ish' post. You look so cute in it! Haha (^__^)

2. Do you class yourself as a bblogger or a fblogger?
I'd lump myself in with the bbloggers more than the fbloggers. Although now that I think about it i don't think I belong in either.. hmm.

I wanted to share with other people my knowledge on skincare and to help my fellow muslimahs on how to dress more modestly because I can't go clothes shopping with them all can I? :P

4. Where do you get your inspiration from?
Uhh. I don't have a specific place to be honest..
