First Fabulous Friday of 2016

Salaamz !

Alas another week and all I’m posting is a fabulous Friday (sigh). Just letting you  know there’s a particular article I’m working on that -much to my husband’s annoyance- I’ve re-written about 11 times already! I know that’s kinda crazy but…I can’t  help it! It’s just not what I want it to be yet. Insha’Allah soon – make duah I get out of this writers block!

So three fabulous things this week that I MUST share with my awesome readers are:


    1. Josie Maran Skin Care Essentials

      Josie Maran skin care essentials. This is not an affiliate post; I don’t get paid for my opinions.. but hey Josie, feel free to send some cash my way! This was a gift from my older sister Naila. She keeps me in the know with the latest and greatest in beauty products/ trends.Her advice is always worth its weight in gold; she is a successful make-up artist in the GTA Masha’ Allah.

      Check out her Instagram account here (after years of being in business, she finally made an account!). Not only does she introduce me to ‘what’s trending now’, she buys it for me too! Seriously, I think when she goes shopping she buys ‘one for me, one for Sahar!’ Yes, I know I’m incredibly lucky to have this amazing Sugar Mama Sista. On top of being super generous and highly talented, she’s a pretty awesome person too. Ok, losing focus, enough about Naila, back to Josie (I initially thought Josie was a Spanish man, I read it like Jose..hmm maybe there’s a reason why I don’t have affiliate connections with her lol). When I opened the box, there were so many little viles that I became intimidated. I really don’t have the time or patience for things that have multiple complicated steps. So back in the box it went. After seeing no improvement in my skin, Naila asked me if I had started using it or not. Apparently the results are so obvious within a short period of time, that she could clearly tell I hadn’t started using it!

      Josie Maran Argan Oil and Argan Milk

      I was intimidated for no reason! The actual skin care regimen is just two steps. The Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment and the 100% Pure Argan Oil. Rub 3-5 drops of the milk on your clean face and follow up with the oil. That’s it! The other bottles were for hair, body and pre-makeup prep. So I’ve been using it and loving it! I re-apply the oil a few times a day because of doing wudu several times a day.This is the best thing I’ve done for my face in forever!

2. You NEED to watch this 1 minute and 40 second clip. It’s hilarious! I rarely actually laugh out loud …this video was an exception.

Wasn’t that so funny??


Raising Young Believers Blog

I love reading blogs by other Muslimah’s. Despite being on the other side of the world, it’s amazing how their writing voice is so familiar and how quickly you can become engrossed in their posts. A few days ago I came across an article on a blog that I follow, I just had to share it with you guys. Raising Young Believers is a beautifully written Muslim Parenting blog that’s full of Islamic teachings.Ever read something and notice you’re nodding and agreeing with everything written?The article Conquering Fears was exactly what I needed to hear this week. Check it out!
