Tanya Burr's Rocky Roads

I haven't had a chance to do any baking recently and I've been missing it a lot.  You know when you're pregnant and you get those cravings?  Well, I feel like that about baking sometimes.  I see these amazing recipes, usually on Pinterest, and feel like I just have to try them out.  But recently, I've been so busy that I just haven't been able to fit any baking into my day.

Anyways, a fellow blogger and lovely cousin of mine, Hafsah sent me over some Rocky Roads.  They were very scrumptious indeed which is why they were gone in seconds!

New Discoveries | Beautiful Blogs

Lately, I've been doing a lot of reading and most of it is on Bloglovin.  I've been spending my evenings curled up in my cosy blanket with my iPad working my way through some great reads.  And in doing so, I have come across some beautiful blogs that have become this months favourites.

Everything about each of these is just perfect, like the photography, for example. From the lighting to the composition, everything about the pictures is so on point.  The content is always interesting, which is exactly what it needs to be if they want me to go back again.  And let me tell you, I've gone back again and again.  Each time, I've come away with something.  I've learnt a new skill, or felt inspired, and now I've even got myself a long list of blogging ideas too.  It takes a lot for me to go back for more, and I think these blogs have ticked all the boxes for me.

So here they are;

Catwalk Copycat | Ralph & Russo V Needle & Thread

Today I thought I'd do something a little different and I was thinking of making this type of post into a weekly feature.  I thought a catwalk copycat post would be ideal because I'm a bit fashion mad (minus the huge bank balance!), and it's usually the first thing I'll look at in a magazine.  It's also one of my favourite type of articles too.  I always like to see comparison type posts or spend vs. save ones, especially when you see such a big difference in price.  You can either look at it two ways, see the huge saving you'll make or see how much money you have left to spend on more for your ever growing wardrobe.  Ooops!

This post actually took me two days and whilst I was researching, I found too many gorgeous dresses definitely worth mentioning and I'm going to be sharing those with you too.  Not today tho, but I've noted it down for my later posts.

So, here's what I found for today.

2 Easy Maxi Dress Tutorials

You know how much I love a maxi and at this time of the year it's the perfect thing to wear.  There are plenty of ways you can style them and my 3 Ways To Wear A Maxi Dress post will show you how.

But today's post is not about styling, it's about making.  I've never told you that I can actually sew.  I learnt to sew a long time ago and learnt everything from adding pockets to making button holes and collars.  I think it's a great skill to have but because I don't sew very often I can only manage simple easy to follow sewing projects.

From time to time I feel like sewing something and these two projects I found on two very lovely blogs are something I would definitely like to try.  They're simple, quick and easy to sew, which means they're right up my street!

How to create a clickable link to your blog

We bloggers love to leave comments on other blog posts and when we do we like to leave our blog link too.  But many of us don't actually link our blog names.  The last thing you want is to go unnoticed.  You want to make it easier for someone to see your blog name, click it, and head straight over to your blog.  Nobody likes to go the long way around it, copy and paste, copy and paste.  So today, I'm going to show you how to create a clickable link to your blog.

Indian Summer Inspired Zara Wishlist

When I think of traditional Indian embroidery and jewels this is what I see in my mind.  A vast array of colourful threads mixed with mirrors, bells, beads, tassels and so much more.  There's a lot going on. It's crazy OTT. But it works!

Advertise with Love Hijab Girl

So I've finally managed to put something together to help my fellow bloggers and businesses gain more exposure.  I've been thinking about doing this for a while but never really got round to it, until a couple of days ago.

BUSINESS FEATURE | Dzaltastic : Contemporary Islamic Products

You all know how much I love anything that's cute, so it comes as no surprise that today's post is all about cute!  When Akmal from Dzaltastic contacted me about her dolls I had to see what it was all about.  Too many cute dolls, that's what!  And along with her hijabi dolls she also has superhero ones too!  In my house we're a little crazy about superheros.  I grew up watching the likes of Superman, Batman and Incredible Hulk and I'm pretty sure you did too.
