Painting The Town Red With Christian Louboutin Nail Lacquer

As we all know the famous shoe designer of our time, Christian Louboutin, is well known for his signature red sole.  The red sole was the perfect finishing touch for a prototype made by CL. “I grabbed a bottle of red nail polish from my assistant and painted it onto the bottom of a shoe. That was the start of my trademark red sole,” says the famed footwear designer.

Every girl knows that there are some things you just can't leave home without.  I must admit tho that there are times when I over pack my bag and I know I have, but I just have to take everything with me, just in case!  Most of the time I don't end up needing or even using, majority of what's in there, but it all comes along with me anyway.  So here, I've narrowed it down and made a list of top 10 essentials that are a must in every girls handbag!!

My Summer Berry Smoothie Recipe

You know when you go through a phase and all you do is that one thing and nothing else?  Well, I think I'm going through a smoothie making, drinking phase!  At least it's a healthy phase, right?

So, since were having some lovely weather, I thought I'd try my hand at making.....none other than.... a smoothie!

I had some raspberries and knew that if I kept them any longer they weren't going to be edible anymore!!  So I thought, why not use them up in a smoothie, that way they don't go to waste.  I also had some strawberries and blueberries too.

Originally I was going to make a strawberry and raspberry smoothie, but decided to add the last few blueberries I had too, and it turned out to be a very refreshing smoothie, if I do say so myself.

Anyways, here's my very own recipe.  Feel free to chop and change the quantities as its all down to your own personal taste. 

Enjoy!! xx

Let me know how you make yours.

Looking So Fine

So a few weeks ago I sent a couple of scarves to Fatimah AKA @arabbarbie18 on instagram.  If you're not following her then you need to go check our her profile, becasue she has the most amazing talent in make up.  Her eye make up is just gorgeous and when you see her work you'll be amazed too.

Using the Looking So Fine scarf that I sent Fatimah created this stunning look.  With her flawless make-up and perfect accessories she sure is looking so fine!

My Fave Muslimah YouTubers

As you all know from my previous post I like to read blogs and watch the bloggers on YouTube too.  Over the years, I have come to recognise quite a few lovely Muslimah YouTubers, some of whom have reviewed our hijabs from our store, Love Hijab.

I'm sure you will recognise some or even all of these lovely ladies.  Their blogs and YouTube videos all vary in style and most definitely worth following.  These Ladies are well known for their videos on YouTube ranging from make up looks to hijab tutorials, advice, tips, vlogs and more.

Here are my favourites, once again in no particular order.  Click the image to go to their YouTube channel and their name to head on over and read their blogs.

Ive only just recently started blogging myself and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.  I love my new hobby!!  Although I have written a blog before, I never really stuck to it and so it disappeared into the great big wide world of blogging!!

But that didn't stop me from reading other blogs about lifestyle, beauty, fashion and everything in between.

Here are my favourite bloggers/youtubers, in no particular order.

Click the images to read their blog, where you'll also find links to all their other social media, including YouTube channels.
