Millionaire Lip Treatment & Lip Butter Scrub | Review

Who knew that a scrub and lip butter could change your lips forever?

You know how much my heart sings for the Millionaire range.

I’ll be honest, I was sceptical.

Small Business Instagram Eid Gift Guide

Small Business Instagram Eid Gift Guide - A gift guide for Eid featuring small business from instagram catering to the Muslim Market in the UK.
Reading Time: 12 minutes

Eid is just around the corner, and I know a lot of us are only starting to realise we’re now halfway through Ramadan alhamdulillah.

We’re not big gift givers in my family, but I wanted to put together a list of Small Business on Instagram who might be up your street that you don’t already know about.

Not all the businesses featured are having a sale for Eid, and for some of the stocks are running out fast!

Even if you don’t buy for someone else, there’s someone who always deserves to be treated and that’s you!

You’ve done amazing this Ramadan and it’s about time we celebrate Eid looking, feeling and smelling our best!

Pros and Cons of Selling on Facebook Marketplace

Or, why I will never sell on Facebook Marketplace again!

Facebook Marketplace is one of those things those of us with a Facebook account (if you still have one after the whole Cambridge Analytica scandal?!) have either accidentally clicked on, or actively seek out.

Hailed as the FREE way to get rid of your unwanted goods, it’s a great way to pick up a bargain close to home.

I would argue however, it is not great for sellers, and a horrible way to sell goods and services unless you want to be ripped off. More on that later.

Rome Life Hotel | Review

While we were planning our trip to Rome we booked the same hotel as the friends we were going with. We spent hours on TripAdvisor searching hotels that were slightly cheaper but that meant they were either far away or not great quality.

The inclusion of breakfast as part of the hotel package was what ended up swaying us, as well as the proximity to the main train station and the tourist sites in Rome.

48 Hours in Rome – What to see, eat and do as a Muslim

Rome is the home of the Catholic faith, so why would you want to travel there as a Muslim?

Italy is a beautiful country with many faiths and even the world’s biggest mosque in Europe!

You just need to be prepared to walk. A lot!
