It’s been a long while since I last posted something on the blog. Accurately, I no longer have a schedule because most of my time goes into working on my final year project, which has been fun and stressful too but the little spare hours I get is what I use to create content on the blog. I’m definitely working on being consistent particularly in writing and I hope to figure that out whilst still being tied with school. September has to be the month of ‘getting my groove back on’ because I have a number of contents planned out that I can’t wait to share with you guys but first, a quick life update as I’ve been MIA for a while and what better way than to come back with a currently I am post so here we go.
LISTENINGTO: Someone great playlist on Spotify. My favourite songs are Truth hurts by Lizzo and Great one. Whoever created that playlist deserves a hug as it has been on repeat in my ears for months.
READING: Scientific Journals, reviews and research paper. I know I’m downright weird but the small fonts gives me a headache. If you know, you know…
WATCHING: IT and I’m looking forward to chapter two. As for series, I’m currently rewatching Gossip for the 100th time. I honestly don’t think I’m mentally stable to catch up on new series but you can always leave me recommendations of good ones to watch.
WEARING: Basics. A shirt, jeans and sneakers or flats are my go-to these days. For comfort and conveniency as I move around a lot due to my project.
EXCITED: For the line up of activities this month. For starters, I’m working with some amazing photographers to create a style edit that would encompass unconventional outfits styled modestly. This is so important to me because I know how I had to give up a few of my favourites clothes when I was younger because I couldn’t wear them and they weren’t modest enough. I hope that this mini project would inspire other Muslim girls and women that there are no limits to what they can wear if the intent is modesty.
WORKINGON: Getting multiple streams of income. Everyday, I’m getting closer to what people would refer to as ‘the real life’ which is life after uni and as much as I can’t wait to be done with school, I really don’t want to be left figuring out how to survive if I stop getting the benefits that comes with being a student.
AIMINGAT: Getting 1k+ followers on Instagram this month. My organic growth has surprisingly increased since my account got hacked months ago. But I would appreciate skyrocketing the numbers a little more.
LOVING: My twitter feed, growth and engagements. For one that has been invisible on that platform for so long, I’m really glad people are engaging with the contents I put out and taking note of the little details. Twitter is my new safe haven!
SLACKINGON: My diet. It’s either food has decided to cast me to exile or I’m the one with a problem because I don’t know who I am anymore. Most times, I take just snacks and water that would get me through the whole day and might not have any palatable food to eat. Well, that continued for weeks until my primal cave-man urge for food came back. It didn’t last long though…
ADMIRING: All of @NabilahKareem’s videos on Instagram. I absolutely adore her contents and you bet that she gets me motivated to create video contents too. I’m also admiring lovely bedroom spaces on Pinterest.
PREPARINGFOR: The number of shoots I have planned for this month. Pray for my skin guys, it’s about to get stressed. Please drop a few skincare tips I could tap into as I’d be doing makeup quite a lot and I feel like my skin won’t breathe. Regardless, gear up for the set of bomb photos that’s about to hit your timelines!!!
WISHING: I don’t have to save and actually have enough money to get a new phone.
There goes all I’ve been up to lately. Hope you all have an amazing week, I really appreciate each and every one of you for sticking up with me and my inconsistency which I’ll be so working on this September.
Since you’ve gotten this far, I would like to thank you again for reading this post. How have you been and what have you been up to lately? Got anything we’re currently in on together?
