Her dream came true

In the name of God, most Gracious and most Merciful. 

Ever since my mom got sick couple of years ago, she never travel far which I wouldn't let her to. She quit her job, stayed at home and took her medications as scheduled. 

After that period, she recovered very fast and starting to eat like normal again. We did went for a short getaway few times that year and last year. But we never separated from each other. My mother always dream to go to Makkah Makkaramah to perform her umrah. I didn't allowed her to go just because I am worried about her health condition. Even earlier this year my uncle asked me if my mother wanted to go with him, I said no. 

But something caught my attention earlier last month. My mother had dreamt about her mother and she told her to go to Makkah and perform her Ibadat. She cried and told me about her dream. After been thinking for a while and had discussion with my sisters, we finally decided to let her go this one time with one condition. We must get the doctor's recommendation and get full medical check up.  So Alhamdulillah, everything went well, she finally get the doctor's approval and started to apply for visa and went for umrah courses during the weekend. Even though our heart were very heavy of letting her go, we believed that she will be safe and fine under The Almighty's protection. Moreover, she is going to the house of Allah-the holiest place in the world. 

In the name of Allah, we praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad S.A.W is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. 

I sincerely hope that my mother will be healthy and safe in the house of God. InsyaAllah.

Have a safe journey mom. We love you.

DIY: Distressing your boyfriend jeans

You see, finding the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans is not an easy task, and I'm never one to spend a ton on ripped denim that I could easily destroy myself. lol. When it comes to boyfriend jeans, I still like them slim. Many come just a tad too baggy and aren't the best for showing off your shape. I have a pair of skinny fit in my drawer for some time now, the reason I'm not wearing it anymore because it was my Uni time's jeans. Whether the jeans got smaller or I'm the one who got fat. You got the idea. So, I've been in a so-called 'diet' programme for couple of months now, not a food diet in particular but it more to supplement consumption and in order to see my changes in term of the 'I'm-less-fat-than-before', I would like to try on my skinny fit jeans to see whether it still fit me!

Surprisingly the 25 size skinny fit jeans suits me again very well but since this old jeans look truly old, I wanted to do something different with it, and I realize they are perfect starter for creating my own boyfriend jeans. They are still fitted around the butt and thighs but loosen up just enough around knee and calves- perfect for a skinny fit for boyfriend jeans that still show off the goods. 

So grab that old pair of loose jeans hidden in your closet and give them a sweet little makeover with easy tutorial. 

First, try on your jeans to have an idea of what areas you would like to distress. If you would prefer to make a mark rather than simply eyeball where on the jeans you intend to distress, use chalk or a pen. 


Cut straight, horizontal slits over the areas you want to distress. The slits should be 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch from each other, which will make pulling out the blue threads even easier. 

Use the tweezers to pull the blue threads, but only in the areas you've cut. It's okay if you can't get them all, or if you have blue fuzz in certain areas. It's all even out in the wash-pun intended!
Do this until only the white horizontal threads are exposed. Continue to do this distressing anywhere else on the jeans that you like. And if you're feeling real spicy rip holes in the knees! But hey ladies, if you don't really want to exposed your skin like me, I have a better way to style the old jeans without showing off your skin. 

I used a very old white t-shirt and sew it under the jeans around the distressed areas. It's very easy.

Pull out the rest of your outfit and voila! You're ready to rock n' roll. 

I also include my video on how to distressed your boyfriend jeans. Enjoy!
