Software Giveaway, Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!


So as the holiday season is here and we’re going to be getting dressed up, hopefully having a good time acting a fool with family and friends and also taking lots and lots of pictures to help remember these good times to remember for all time.

So what better way to start the season then with a giveaway?!

Okay so first of all let me just say that MyMemories.com have kindly e-mailed me and asked for me to try out their Digital Scarpbooking Software.  And I got to say I’m really enjoying myself playing around with it and making a lot of different layouts and playing with all the little bits and bobs they have on it, it really does have a lot of stuff jammed into their program.

And that’s not even the best part, but what is, is that it’s really simple and easy for anyone to use, and I mean anyone, even that aunt/uncle who is still using AOL lol, but for real I really do enjoy using this as it’s like really Scrapbooking just without all the glitter, glue, and million and one different things making a mess on your floor with glue and tape sticking to anything it touches.

ANYWAY on too the good part…. They offered for me to host a giveaway to my readers, and anyone who else wants to enter to win this awesome Scarpbooking software so let’s get down to some easy to follow rules to enter to win….

1.       Visit mymemories.com
2.       Comment below and tell me what’s your favorite layout, or digital paper pack you like from their site

It’s as simple as that, also for everyone to spread the word about this giveaway if you will, I’ll love that, and I’ll give you a digital cookie lol

 
Here's a page I did for thanksgiving

Breast Cancer Awareness Tea

So here are the pictures I said I would post, after the Breast Cancer Awareness Tea.

We had loads of sweets, & finger foods, which everyone loved; the d├ęcor of course was Pink, White, and some of the Girls wanted black, so we throw that in also. I didn’t really take a lot of pictures, mainly because I was running around getting stuff done, so the only pictures I took were from before the event started with my sisters, and some pictures of the food table -_- also as you can see we dressed pinky for the Tea. 

Also let me know what you did for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, also did any of you walk for Breast Cancer? Unfortunately I couldn’t make it this year :(

Eid Ad-Fitra '11

Is it just me or, does anyway else stays up the night before Eid, doing random things, just to make time pass, even though going to sleep makes more sense? lol

so anyway ever year my family and some friends goes to the first Eid Salat at 7am, and leave right after to go to breakfast at Ihop than return to the Masjid for the second Salat at 9am to chill with everyone else and take pictures than leave around 2pm;  to then head home to change outfits and head out to have some good old' fashion family friendly clean fun lol every year we change it up some. this year we had breakfast at Ihop, than Pictures/Hanging out, Hour nap, Outfit change, Bowling, Lunch, than Movies after that and then everyone does their own thing later on into the night.

My Sisters, Me and My Mother, don't know where my brother went too lol

Yummm do I smell something new?


Hey everyone long time, no post huh… I know I don’t really update this blog as much as I update my beauty blog; because let’s face it, not a lot of people want to read about random happenings in my life,  and read about them when, and if I feel like posting about them. So with that being said I’m going to try something different than my same old, same old posts of random things in my life.

Now I’m not sure if I told any of y’all this but… cooking, baking, & eating is something I enjoy doing, so I’m going to write some post on that topic, and show y’all some pictures, and see how that goes for a little while. But I’m still going to update on random happenings in my life, just not a much, as I use too. Anyway I’ll be putting up my new post soon.

P.S. since I’m sure everyone already knows I’m Muslim and I only eat Halal foods, everything I cook/bake is going to be Halal. just letting y'all know :D

Crazy Weather and Rainbows


Springfield’s weather has been kinda sucky lately, with one day it’s raining cats and dogs and cold, and then it’s sunny and hot, then it’s cloudy and windy the next moment. But one thing’s for sure is that after all the bad and crazy weather is that almost always something comes after that makes it all worth it!

of Fun days, BBQ, Bad days, and even some Birthdays

So first of all, I wanna say I’m sorry for not updating in like forever and a day. I've been really busy these pass couple of weeks. I've had a few BBQ’s, Grad Parties, & Birthdays to Attained to. Not to mention Hair & Makeup Gigs, and ICNA was a few weeks back to, and I’ve been busy helping the Islamic school close down for the summer, and one of my friends just had her Baby Shower. but... overall I want to say sorry again for not updating.

Also I’m not sure if y’all know or not but Springfield just had a tornado at the beginning of this month, that being said,  I live in the valley so most of the people living here had no clue on what to do when one touches down near them or around the area where they live. Some parts had thunder storms and nickel sized hail, and crazy ass wind. We got hit pretty badly but God really is merciful because it could have been a lot worse. Every last one of the tornado victims are in my prayers.

Anyway here are some pictures from the last few weeks!

Me Bowling, I'm pretty good to lol
My Mothers, Mother's Day Rose Cake, her fav color is yellow

ICNA, Shopping kind of was slacking this year, the lectures were good tho.
