Outfit Du Jour: Old and New

This picture is one that I actually posted a while back on instagram. Whilst its not exactly a full shot its enough to see the little details!

This is something that I would just chill around the house in, something super comfortable and cute – but doesn’t look like your pyjamas – lucky for you all I twisted the arm of my cousin to model *YAY*

The Ramadhan Eed Post

As many of you are probably aware Ramadhan has drawn to an end and ‘Eed is nigh!

The blessed month of Ramadhan in which fasting is prescribed is akin to a preparatory course..

In it we are encouraged to become god-fearing; to rush towards good deeds, spend profusely in charity and save our tongues, limbs and hearts from any evil – in short to reach the peak of spiritual excellence.

Whilst detoxing the self from both physical and spiritual maladies we are also told to spare a thought for the poor.

Though we abstain from food we know at the end of the day at sunset our kitchen tables will be groaning under the various items of food..Biscuits, sweet pastries and warming broths

Food is one of the key points of both Ramadhan and ‘Eed its the focus of the conversation, the R in in the Ramadhan and its pivotal in bringing the family together!

We didn’t make so much this year for ‘eed but heres a couple of snapshots from both Ramadhan and our prep for ‘Eed – hope you all get a flavour of the excitement!
