Thoughts.

People say home is where you feel safest and warmest. To most of us that a person or people we we love most. Missing those we love most is one of the most difficult things one can deal with. 

The horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach caused by loneliness is surely the worst thing in the world.

Words to live by

“Show forgiveness,

Enjoin kindness,

Avoid ignorance.”

[Surah Al Araf 7:199]

In the end…

I’m dealing with something now that at times brings me so low down I don’t think I’ll ever get back up. 

I’m finding it hard to understand why people are the way they are. Why do people lie? Why are people so quick to blame others? Why can’t people admit to their own errors? Why are people so two-faced? Why are they so FAKE?!?!

I hold my hands up, I’m human, I make mistakes. I’m the first to admit I can make bad choices and not think before I act.

This same issue has been playing on and off in my mind for a while. Most of the time I’m quite good at dealing with it. I keep telling myself I know the truth and I know what’s right and what’s wrong. I don’t need to tell people to make it true. I know and that is enough!

Be true to who you are, always.

Forgive & Forget?

I came across this on Instagram tonight after having an incredibly difficult day dealing with my emotions.

At some point in our lives I’m sure each and every one of us has been so hurt by a situation that you don’t want to let go of the anger. I’m trying incredibly hard to let go of certain situations, but it is much easier said than done!

Many years ago I realised just how draining being angry can be and it helped me let go of a lot of things. Lately, I am finding that it’s hard to let go of hurt caused by those you thought would never hurt you. 

What are your thoughts on forgiveness and moving on? Help!

Hijab and fashion

For weeks I’d been looking forward to a fancy meal at The Ivy Chelsea Garden. My main reason for this excitement was the fact that I would have a chance to dress up! And what girl doesn’t love that?I went for a simple but classy choice of outfits. Mainly black and white with pop of colour from my handbag, which matched my earrings and nails – I was really quite proud of this!Outfit details: dress from Miss Selfridge, with a Primark basic black top underneath. Leggings from primark. Beautiful suede effect shoes from ASOS. Bag is Carvella, Kurt Geiger, gold Casio watch and sunglasses from Boots Opticians. Earnings and rings from Accessorize. Nails are BarryM Gelly Hi-shine in Colour Guava. 

I wanted to wear my hijab in a simple yet stylish fashion whilst being able to maintain a modest and classy look. I went to a quick and easy turban rap that allowed me to hold onto the simplicity of my outfit making sure my bag was the main feature. I reckon this hijab style may become on of my favourites! 

What are your thoughts on this look? N. Xoxo

Eid MubarakĀ 

The holy month of Ramadan has come to an end and what better way to end than knowing that you have truly benefitted. 

I went into the holy month wanting not only to fast but to better myself as a person. I told myself I would change one thing about myself which I felt would not only make me a better Person but a better Muslim too. Alhamdulillah, I must say I was so concious of the change I wanted that now I feel I have achieved it and I am the better person intended to become. 

The hardest thing is keeping up with the changes once Ramadan is over. But InshaAllah whatever goal we have set ourselves and whatever we want to achieve, we are able to do so. May Allah make it easy for us all.

Silence…

Ironically, this quote speaks volumes! I have always been one to say exactly how I feel when I feel it. I always believed it’s better to say how you feel than bottle it up and it build up inside you until you explode!
Recently I have come to the realisation that silence is sometimes the best way to deal with things. Rather than saying things in the heat of the moment, it is better to address the issue with a clear mind. Remember Allah knows your intentions, holding your tongue, though it may be hard, will surely benefit you in the long run, InshaAllah. This is easier said than done and I am working hard to make this a habit. We wish to become better people everyday and our biggest enemy is our own self. 

‘Sometimes sabr and silence is better than expressing how you really feel.’ 

Let me know your thoughts.

NYX NYX NYX

Hi all!

This summer I have found a new love! I know, it’s the best feeling in the world. What is this new love I hear you ask… MAKE UP!!!

I have recently splashed out on many new products which I will be doing separate posts about in the coming weeks. Stay tunes guysss šŸ˜€

NYX cosmetics had only become available in the UK in the last few months. So as you can imagine, I was  VERY excited and got a few different products to try out!

I picked up the following six items:IMG_0965

Mousse liner in epic black

Illuminator in ritualistic

Wonder sick in universal

Liquid suede cream lipstick in shade LSCL 12

Baked blush + illuminator + bronzer in shade BBL10 Ladylike

Matte finish setting spray

Honestly guys, I am completely in love with each and every one of these products. I am new to all this make up business, and these products were honestly the best things for me to start with and explore what I can do with make up.

I have always wanted to be able to contour my face but at the same time, not make it look so defined. I have watched an endless amount of YouTube tutorials and tried my best in the past. Using the wonder stick was so simple and allowed me to achieve exactly what I wanted! I  contoured ad highlighted perfectly! However, I still haven’t quite worked out how to contour my nose. I have a rather unusual nose, so if anyone knows how to make it looks shorter and smaller… PLEASE TELL ME HOW! THANKSSS!

Every since I was about 16 I have been obsessed with eyeliner and ca not live without it. Over the years I have tried many and found many I love and some that I just don’t! People always go on about gel liners and how they are the best thing since slices bread. Now is it just me or does anyone else struggle with gels? I have tried many from Rimmel to Maybelline to Bobbi Brown. None of these could win me over. The NYX liner however is just amaaaaazing! It gave me the perfect darkness I was looking for and was so soft and easy to use. I’m finally happy!

A friend of mine did my make up for me a few weeks ago and told me I had to invest in a  highlighter/illuminator. Now,  since I didn’t actually know what to do with an illuminator I thought I would go for something fairly cheap. This was was about Ā£10, maybe less and I love the shade and the pigmentation of the powder is divine.

I applied the blush with my brush at first but felt it didn’t give me the intensity I was going for, leaving me very disappointed. However, when I applied with my beauty blender the colour of the blusher was beautiful. So now I know, use the blender not the brush.

Matte lip cream are all over the place now, with everyone wanting that perfect matte finish like Kylie Jenner. I am also one of them (and proud). This time though, I went for the Liquid Suede, which isn’t quite matte and made my lips look so plump and perfect, if i do say so myself. The only issue I have with this product is that the applicator is quite long and so its hard to apply if you don’t have a really steady hand. it had to really concentrate and apply this and found it rather difficult.

IMG_0934The look was finished off with a matte finish setting spray, which didn’t burn my eyes! Thumbs up for that! It held my make up perfectly the whole day!

Here are  few pictures of the finished look. I am only an amateur so I don’t look perfect, but I was impressed with the outcome!

I went for the turban hijab style with a grey jersey hijab teamed with these gorgeous studs from Accessorize. LOVE LOVE LOVE ITTT!

A New Direction

Hey Guys!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. You know how it is, life gets you busy! The past year has probably been the most intense and draining of my life. But I can’t complain, dreams have come true this year! Alhamdulillah.

‘There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs’. And take the stairs I did!

But now that I have made it through the year and survived I will be on here a lot more. I am making a few changes and I hope you all join me on this journey that I am extremely excited about. With a new name for my page “Doses of Noush’ and a new direction I hope to make this blog a lot more exciting for everyone. I will also be launching my YouTube Channel very soon so stay tuned!

I can’t wait to let you all into my world!

N.Xoxo
