Peggy Porschen Cakes

Let me tell you a little story.
My friend and I were on our way to Peggy Porschen bakery. We decided to take the London Underground tube because we hardly use it anymore after Uber came into existence, and so we thought why not? It will be fun - and it was! Anybody who saw my Instagram stories can attest to this.

We had to change trains in Liverpool street, and we got lost. But really, who knew that the Station was that big? Okay everyone knew. We are just a bit clumsy, so we asked the train station assistant where we should catch our next train. The assistant inquired; "What exactly are you doing in Sloan Square?"
We responded that we were going to a cute cafe called Peggy Porschen, of course! To which the assistant replied: "If I go to Peggy Porschen shop and the cakes are not good...?"
Now, here's the point of the story. I bet everyone who's heard of this cafe thinks the exact same thing: "Is the shop worth visiting?"
Well, read on to see!

July with Halal Goodies

 July is a special month for me. It is one of the sunny months of the year, which is always a plus!
But it's also my birth month, which I'm reluctant to call a plus as I've started to count the years that have passed.

As I've grown older every year and my life has become busier, I have noticed that enjoying the simple pleasures in life is important. It's definitely given me a happier and more grateful outlook on life, allowing me to nurture my inner and outer self.

Halal Goodies sent me this extremely beautiful box at a perfect time! This month is my month. A month when I evaluate my life, straight after a very stressful time with work, it was a great way to pamper myself in a busy month.

Eid party

We Muslims are lucky. Why you ask?  We get to celebrate Eid twice a year!  YAY! Double the fun. Eid ul-Fitr marking the end of Ramadan and Eid ul Adha to remember Prophet Ibrahim & Hajj (and let's not forget the delicious lamb!) It is comforting to know that eating good food and enjoying your day with loved ones is the main itinerary of the day. However, growing older, I have become fond of celebrating Eid with style. This isn't to say that style was absent when I was a kid (Eid decorations were always present), but there are now various creative decorations that have seriously taken the whole Eid decorations to a new level.
