Review | Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

19 September 2015

I received a another Vox Box from Influenster and in it was the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs to test out. Well sadly I had misplaced the actual product but luckily I had a coupon that came with it. I went down to my local Walgreens and used the coupon to purchase some of these.

In the box there it was a cream or a lotion but when I went to the store they didn't have any. I was really upset about that but decided to go with the spray. I don't really think there would be a big difference other than how it is applied.

I wasn't sure which one would be a good color for me so I grabbed three of them. The colors that I got were light, medium, and deep. There is also a tan that is available.  My skin tone is a bit off and blotchy and so I decided to test each one to see which one would work best.

I ended up going with the medium one. The light made me look too ashy and the deep was, well do I even need to say?
(L) No product - (R) With Product in Medium

After you apply it and rub it in, make sure you blend it into your skin so that you can have a flawless finish. Oh and did I mention that it's water resistant? Yup it sure is. I love that part because it get crazy hot here where I live so with sweating and pool time, I don't don't want any embarrassing streaks going down my legs.

I do love this aerosol can though. All you need to do is spray a light mist over your legs and rub it in. It is quite easy to control how much product you use. If it is not enough the first time around you can always add more to build it up for a bit of a deeper tone.
 I will be honest though, I'm quite surprised at how much I like this product. As you can see I really don't need a tan. It kind of comes natural to me, lol. However, I don't look at this product as a tanner but more as a concealer for your legs. I just love how it even outs the coloring of my skin. It didn't cover completely because some of my scars do still show but I love the flawless finish. It does exactly what it says it does.

Would I recommend this product? Yes I would.
Is it worth the price of $13.99? I wouldn't mind it be a bit lower.

My Eid OOTD for 2015

05 August 2015

Salaam everyone. I'm friends with a lovely young lady on facebook and YouTube that I got this beautiful dress from. I absolutely love it. It's comfy, light weight and did I mention beautiful?

I was able to pick from this lovely teal and navy blue or a salmon and black I believe. I of course picked the teal with navy blue. I didn't have a hijab to match it and so I just pared it with a black hijab and some flats. Wasn't sure on what kind of jewelry to wear either so I just put on my silver wrap with a little black and white bead.

The only thing that I don't like but it's my own fault was the sleeves. I was asked if I wanted 3/4 length or full long sleeve and I went with the 3/4. I under estimated how fat my arms were. Oh well, still cute and will still rock it.


Keeping my faith| Moving| School

29 July 2015

Assalamualaikum (May peace be upon you). I hope that everyone is well in shaa Allah (God willing). I just thought I would do a bit of an update here on the blog to fill everyone in what has been going on. Well I won't go into full details but will say enough.

I have been dealing with a lot lately. Whether it be emotional, spiritual, and well physical as well. I have stepped away from my faith for a while because I was going through some things. I kept up with it to some extent but I wasn't where I wanted to be or where I should be. Instead of putting my trust in Allah swt, I just gave up. I know that he will not put anything upon me that I can't handle. I have been doing a lot of (extra) praying, reading the Qu'ran, and obtaining a lot of knowledge from Qu'ran Weekly, and Bayyinah TV over on YouTube. The things that I have been reading has reflected my life. Coincidence? I think not. I took it as a sign, that to put my trust and faith back into Allah (swt) because he knows what I'm facing, and he will guide me to where I need to be.

Those that follow me on my personal Facebook page, know that I've somewhat been talking about moving. I try not to discuss it too much due to personal reasons. What I mean by that is where I plan on moving to, why I'm moving, and when. I do what I can to keep a lot of things to a minimal when it comes to posting things. Yes I have my blog, YouTube and other social media sites, but those are more for business purposes.  Something happened not long ago and it's really taken a toll on not only myself but on my son as well. I will just leave it at that. I've contacted a few people that are doing what they can to help me out and you know who you are, so thanks ladies.

With everything that has been going on, has done nothing but drained me. I'm so worn out and tired. I wouldn't wish this feeling on anyone. No one should have to stress about anything in their life, but sadly that is just one of the natural form of emotions that is beyond our control. At least that is what I think anyway. I have always been the first one to tell someone to never give up, and yet that is the first thing that I do. I will look at this as a learning experience and pray that I make better choices in my life to not allow myself to be put in situations such as this again.

As far as school goes, I'm still in school, for now. I'm going to keep going in shaa Allah. That is one thing I love about taking online courses, because I can take it with me where ever I go. School is only thing that I have right now that keeps me going. Well beside my Allah, and my son of course. I never had the opportunity to attend college right after high school. Then by the time I was ready, I thought I was too old. Even now I often second guess myself when it comes to education because I struggle so much with learning comprehension. I have my entire life. It's no walk in the park, I can tell you that for sure.  I am trying my best to not let what is going on personally to deter me from finishing this.

Because of what is going on and until I get it taken care of, I will not be posting anymore videos. This is one of the reason's on why I haven't been posting much and keeping a schedule to begin with, it's because of dealing with a past personal problem. I will do what I can though. No promises.

I also would like to thank everyone for your understanding of all this and the few for your support. Masha'Allah I love you all so much.

Vegan Cheesecake Chia Pudding

28 July 2015

Maybe you're familiar with chia seeds. Maybe you'er not. Either way, I am hoping after today they'll be a staple in your pantry.

Chia seeds go way back. Back in time. Ancient time. However, they've only recently made a comeback. Over the past few years, health and beauty experts have been raving about chia seeds for the high amount of omega-3s that they carry along with a boat load of other health and diet benefits.

Some experts even say that when eaten regularly, chia seeds can help you have a more youthful glow and an abundance of energy. At my age? I'll take that!

But I am not going to bore you with the facts today. If you want to know more just google chia seeds and you'll find pages and pages of great information.

Today, I would like to share my favorite little secret about these seeds.
These seeds have superpowers. Super transforming powers.

When placed in liquid, these little guys expand forming a gel-like substance. How cool is that. What's even cooler is that this gel-like substance is really really good for you. Ridiculously good.

Now, what if we can take this really cool, really healthy gel and turn it into a really yummy dessert or snack. We can and we will.

  • 1.5 cups raw cashews, *quick soaked*
  • 1 large lemon, juiced (scant 1/4 cup)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar or sweetener of choice
  • 4 cups of almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup of chia seeds
  • cinnamon, for garnish
  • Add all ingredients (except chia seeds) to a blender and mix until very smooth. 
  • Add chia seeds and slightly blend just enough to mix the chia seeds.
  • Pour into an air tight container
  • Place in fridge for at least two hours to allow the chia seeds to work it's magic.


Kiss Pro Lash Kit Review

26 July 2015

When you find a brand that provides quality for an amazing price, then you stick with it. So, I’ve always been a major fan of Kiss’ lashes and lash glue – but I never before tried their Ever Pro line, until my Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox back in 2012. I have been using these ever since. I have done a review previously but since I don't use that blog anymore, I thought I'd go ahead and do another one here.

I really love these lashes, the glue is stable, latex-free, and long lasting. And the lashes are lush, glamorous, made of 100% human hair, and don’t irritate my eyes at all. Plus the pink applicator is really helpful, and makes lash application a breeze!

The Ever Pro lashes are really lush – definitely event worthy lashes. I wouldn’t wear them on a day to day basis – as that would look sort of overdone and garish. However, nights out, gatherings, parties and other events where looking glam is a priority are perfect opportunities to don these lashes.
 When opening the package, you don’t want to use the pink applicator/tweezers to take the lashes off – what you want to do is bend back at the cut portion and peel off with your fingers. Then be sure to apply enough lash glue to the lashes – too little glue and your lashes won’t stay on long. Wait 10-15 seconds, or until the glue is tacky. Then, using a mirror and the pink applicator tweezers, apply the lashes as close to your lash line as possible. You want to apply them as close to your lash line as you can so that it doesn’t look obvious that you’re wearing falsies – you want your lashes to look as natural as possible.
These are super easy to apply, and really give you the appearance of having super long, thick, glamorous Hollywood –style lashes! I’m definitely stocking it in my beauty collection, and am sooo glad that I had the chance to try them! For more details on the lashes and all the great products Kiss offers, check out their website here!


China Glaze Gothic Lolita & Lynnderella LavenDear

25 July 2015

So today I have a NOTD that I did with 2 beautiful purple polishes.

These lovely purples I used for today’s nails are China Glaze Gothic Lolita and Lynnderella LavenDear.

First of all, if you don’t have Gothic Lolita, GO GET IT NOW! It is an amazingly beautiful polish from China Glaze’s Electropop collection. It’s a gorgeous, medium purple with some awesome hidden shimmer running through it. When I first saw promo pics, I was like, “meh, another purple”. But it’s not just another purple. You really have to see it in person to fully appreciate it, but trust me when I say that you need it. Plus, it’s called Gothic Lolita, which I happen to think is a pretty badass name for a nail polish. It goes on smooth and buttery and is opaque in 2 coats.

On my ring finger I added 2 coats of the purple glitter explosion that is Lynnderella LavenDear. It goes perfectly with Gothic Lolita, so I couldn’t resist doing a glittery accent nail with it. Peep the purple goodness:

So what do you think of this purple mani?

It’s out of the normal range of polish colors that I tend to wear, but I love how it came out.

I know LavenDear is not easy to get your hands on, but Gothic Lolita is pretty easy to find and it’s totally awesome. Also, if you do happen to have LavenDear, I’ve just provided you with the perfect “underwear” for it. You’re welcome
