Eid And All Things Cupcake

Eid And All Things Cupcake

Woah. It almost feels foreign being back on here…i hope you guys haven’t been left disappointed by my abnormal absence and seeming abandonment of the blog. It has not been abandoned. I just had security issues with my laptop which lead to security issues with my blog! Anyway my super...
One Stroke Painting

One Stroke Painting

You all knew this blog post was soon approaching (well, those of you who follow me on instagram and facbeook anyway).  I discovered one stroke painting on my rosey-floral art venture. I felt as though although hand-drawn roses demonstrated my aptness to detail, there was a bigger market for paintings...
Day out

Day out

LOLS. I know it’s been a decade or so since i’ve done a blog post so i thought to take today’s sugar fest and outing as a photo opportunity for a blog post (and possibly give you an idea about where you might want to go out on your next dessert outing)....
Cake Decorating

Cake Decorating

After watching a chain of icing videos on youtube  i was inspired to use the bowl of icing in my fridge to practice some icing techniques. I created a mini rose bouquet using a large petal nozzle from Ebay(bought from china). Wilton do these in a large variety of sizes and styles...
Illustration Work

Illustration Work

For the past couple of days I’ve been working on some illustrations for a collaborative project with Haute Arabia. These were highly influenced by the work of illustrator Mariam Abbas. I’ve found a new love for drawing all over again after experimenting with her style. All images (including the featured image) were...
Ebayingz

Ebayingz

Behold, yet another Ebay post! This gold chain collar necklace was a mere £1.80 from a Chinese seller. Something like this would cost £5 + in a place like new look. It’s a very versatile piece, and can go with many looks, plus the subtlety of the design makes it not too overwhelming  when...

Watercolour Illustrations

Watercolour Illustrations

As those that follow me on instagram know, i’ve been taking up the use of watercolours much more seriously as of late (well, i like to think so anyway). After attempting to paint a retro illustration, and being pleasantly satisfied with the outcome (see below), i got a little carried away and proceeded to paint...
Healthy Eats- Weekly Meal Prep

Healthy Eats- Weekly Meal Prep

I wanted a positive start to my first week of work as a professional. As daunting as it all s, the thought of being organised helps relieve my anxiety. I’ve never prepped my meals for the entire week like this before, but was inspired to after seeing multiple ‘fitspiration’ posts on Instagram. I’m no stranger to prepping...
Holland Park

Holland Park

Most Londoners i know always complain about there being no places to go out to. It’s partly true; London can seem bland in comparison to the outdoor activities other countries have to offer. When it comes to choices, the Londoner may feel limited to the typical tourist attractions in Central, the commercial luxuries of Oxford Circus,...
Maamoul معمول

Maamoul معمول

I’ve been a big fan of the guys at Xawaash (Somali youtube channel) for a long while now; only thing is, i never managed to find the time to try out their countlessly mouthwatering recipes. This Eid, i decided to finally do it and boy- was it worth it. For those of you who aren’t...
Metallic Tattoos

Metallic Tattoos

I try to avoid conforming to the “latest” fashion trends, because I have always been someone that’s preferred to think outside of the box and express this in the way I present myself; however, there are some trends that are just difficult to ignore- like these graphic tattoos that have caused a storm ever since...
Fashion Illustrations

Fashion Illustrations

So, it has come to my attention that my Ipad is on the brink of its death- meaning i could potentially lose all its contents when one of these days, it abruptly stops working. I realise that although i’ve posted images of my fashion drawings on instagram, i never have presented them in their true...
Teaching

Teaching

It’s been a very long while since I have posted and I’m hoping that all of you are doing well! As you know, I am a teacher in training with intense workloads and duties, so I am excused and hope you don’t cast it off as pure laziness -cheeses-. Working in teaching has opened me...
Tourist

Tourist

I was told i wouldn’t have much of a social life upon embarking on my teacher training(that’s kinda true)- however, i still manage to find the time to do a little bit of exploring about the city when i can. Despite having lived in London for close to 18 years, there is still much to...
B Prepared Makeup Primer

B Prepared Makeup Primer

So lately, i had been growing increasingly lazy with my makeup and beauty routine- and it was starting to really show. I wanted to look presentable and bang tidy day in and out but was not prepared to commit to waking up extra early every morning to perfect my makeup. I thought the key to...
Red Velvet Cupcakes with Fluffy White Chocolate Ganache frosting

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Fluffy White Chocolate Ganache frosting

Hello strangers!Long time no see. There won’t be much more see for another while after this either XD. A little something my sister told me just made me remember I had other personal obligations apart from my studies such as this blog. It’s been two whole years (going on 3 soon) that my blog has...
Wedding Season

Wedding Season

Well, it’s not exactly “wedding season” any more as we now enter September. This post is a little late but considering i start my Teacher training tomorrow, and have a gruelling and busy year ahead-i figured i better post it quick! Though, i really do hope this doesn’t mean i will be forced to end...
GRAZE Boxes review

GRAZE Boxes review

Don’t mind the accentuated ‘graze’. I felt like doing that to annoy my brother-in-law in case he came across this post on his facebook (he hates the word graze).   I was itching to try these graze boxes for months now, but the fact that it cost £3.99 per box made me reluctant to try...
