Eid Hijaab

I found a great tutorial by Amenakin on YouTube for pinning a scarf so that your earrings show. Amena has a website called Pearl Daisy that sells hijaabs and something she’s created called a hoojab (is a long scarf with a hood at the front), which I’m dying to try.

The Graveyard Book

Yesterday morning I attempted to read Book 1 of the Wheel of Time. I have read it before but I was in high school at the time and I can’t quite remember what went down. I was struggling to concentrate. I don’t know if it was the knowledge that there are THIRTEEN books to complete  ...
