Happy Holidays!!!

Five years ago tomorrow my beautiful mother passed away. Insha'allah may Allah grant her Jannat-el Firdous (Highest Heaven). Although it's hard at times (especially this time of year) I think of the happy moments we shared together; the laughs, the hugs and overall joy. She was truly a great, genuine and giving person. When she converted to Islam many many years ago, she picked a name she loved years prior to her conversion out of an encyclopedia. Khadijah. She wanted very much to live up to that name as best as she could. Alhumdulillah I think she did the name justice. :)

I am in love with the color rust.


 فَبِأَيِّ آلَاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ
Fabi-ayyi ala-i rabbiku ma tuka-thiban

 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

I can not get over how gorgeous the sky looks.

I was extremely excited when H&M finally opened a store in the Dallas area which was about 2 months ago. It was so far from me but I went to the store maybe a month after it opened hoping the lines wont be so long and I would be able to actually purchase something..WRONG! since it was the the only store it was super packed..and oddly enough extremely dark lighting which turned me off completely.

I got a little jolt of excitement when my neighbor told me one was opening in the local mall.

I went to the mall today (Dec. 18th) so my son can play in the play area, and to my surprise I saw a sign saying Grand Opening Dec 15th. [Clearly I don't not read my malls] I peeked in, [the lightning in this location was bright and cheerful] to see how long the lines were and it was reasonable so I decided to browse and eventually came out with a purchase. It's offically my first H&M purchase in 5 years since moving to this Country and City!

I had this in my to post list since October. I was contemplating posting these and was a little torn as to if I should or shouldn't. What really got me is what people would think! Finally I've decided to share. Not all my readers are Muslim and I don't feel as if drawing a pumpkin or Frankenstein on my nails really go against Islam. Some might not agree with my decision and that is OK..

I know these images are a tad irrelevant now, but please enjoy!

CG: Lemon Fizz, OPI: Silver Shatter, Piggy Polish: Orange County, SinfulColors: Snow Me White & Black on Black , SallyHensen: Going Green

SinfulColors: Black on Black & Snow Me White, OPI: Who the Shrek Are You? & Black Shatter

DIY: Straight Pin Painting

I hate it when I have a green, or a red hijab and I don't have the pins to match. Straight pins are extra handy as a hijabi, but they come in a limited selection of color if you get them from the sewing store or even grocery store. One day I got fed up with my lack of color selection and thought; since I have a whole bunch of nail polish ranging in a variety of colors, why not paint my pins myself. And that is exactly what I did. This is a great  and perhaps cheaper alternative to purchasing from specialty hijab stores or even online.

Things you'll need:

A Hijab:

Nail Polish (closest match to hijab):

Straight Pins:

and voila!!
A Close Match!!!
