Salaam Everyone! I hope that you all had a great past few days and I hope that you all voted! I must just mention how important I think it is that we all vote, no matter who it is that you are voting for. As many of us are, I am a child of a former apartheid struggle comrade. My father and in fact my entire family was very much involved in the fight against oppression. I grew up knowing and understanding how much they sacrificed, what little rights they had, and how these injustices affected them. It is for this reason I realise and know with all I am, the importance of taking the privilege given to us. To vote, to have a say! It is due to the country we live in, I can wear my hijab freely with no prejudice. It is because if my family’s hard work that I am able to do so, and to squander what they have fought so hard to give us would be a damn shame!
It’s official. Winter in upon us. I really don’t know what to wear lately, and I realise that I’m stuck with this issue more often than not. I threw on some old stuff I have and what I believe made the outfit, which is nothing special really, but its my scarf that pulls it together. By the way I have a love and hate relationship with these boots. Old boots from Aldo, but the problem I have with boots in genera, is that I never find a pair that fit around my legs. I did manage to take another pair of boots I have to the shoe make and he made it smaller for me. I just never got around to doing it with this one. Anyway, You don’t need the most expensive clothes or the most newest. You just need to know what items can make the otherwise bland ensemble pop.
And Happy Mothers day to all you beautiful moms, and those mother figures as well. Tireless efforts of mothers can never be underestimated! May Allah protect you all always! In sha Allah!
Until next time loves!
