Influenster Cosmo VoxBox

Today in the mail I received my Influenster Cosmo VoxBox , which was a total surprise because I forgot I had even signed up on the site, Out of everything in the box, I am most exited about the pens. I happen to LOVE stationary, so this is a great addition to my collection.

I am excited about these, a little doubtful because they remind of  those old papermate erasable pens which don't write well nor erase. Hopefully they'll give me a fresh outlook on erasable pens.
I love Venus razors, I currently use one now.

This will be given to the closest person in my reach.. Nut allergies prevent me from eating:(
I am not a perfume girl, but it smells really nice.

Small Haul!!!

For complete list of names click here

The first 2 came in the nails today. The next three I picked up while grocery shopping today as well. I already have NYC Matte Me Crazy but decided I needed another one. They were only two and I was this close to buying both but I actually thought to my self. "Fatima be nice, leave the last one for someone else"... The Last 3 were picked up yesterday when I was in CVS getting some chips for my son. I think I have a problem.

I will probably be MIA for a bit. My family is currently in a huge transition. My husband moved to Minneapolis, MN for work, and most likely I and my son will follow suit insha'Allah in January. (if all goes according to plan). Even though it's a 6 month contract. It's still a big deal to me at least because Texas is all I know for the last 5years. But I am excited at well. Change is always good!

The color turned out this beautiful raspberry red/pink. So pretty. I know that's far from purple or teal, but I love it.

Candy Yum Yum!!!

Growing up I would find those sesame seed crisps or brittle type things everywhere and anywhere. I have been craving them for the longest time, since I wasnt able to find them anywhere, I decide to make my own.

Was this ever a hit in my house.

and stored  

For this recipe I used half regular sesame seeds and raw un-hulled sesame seeds, so one cup of each.

2 cups sesame seeds
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons margarine
1 teaspoon baking soda


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Place the sesame sees on a large cookie sheet or jelly roll pan and toast them in the oven for 15 minutes.
3. Place the seeds in a 3 quart pan. Add the sugar, corn syrup, 1/3 cup water and margarine to the sesame seeds.
4. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
5. Once it's come to the boil, continue to cook without stirring until the temperature reaches 270 degrees F on a candy thermometer or until a small amount of the mixture forms a ball when dropped into very cold water. (I don't have a candy thermometer, so I use the ball test.) This can take 15 to 20 minutes or more. The ball should be "plastic" in texture but should hold the ball shape.
6. Grease a jelly roll pan.
7. Stir the baking soda into the sesame seed mixture and pour into the jelly roll pan.
8. Spread the mixture with a metal spatula so it is 1/4 inch thick.
9. Cool completely and then break into pieces.

Something Old!!!!

My son grows like a weed and I'm constantly buying him pants. 2 years ago he had these pants he barely wore and still in decent condition. I didn't want to get rid of them so I did a little altering. Converted the pants in shots.

Here is my latest pant alteration. An old school uniform pant, transforms into new school uniform shorts.
The original

One size too short

All I used
I had to hand stitch because my machine is on the fritz.
First day wearing his new shorts..and he managed to get icing all over them.. :(
 I also use to turn his old rompers into t-shirts.
