How to edit your photos for a bright and clean Instagram feed

I usually asked about how I curate my Instagram feed and stories. And I decided to share with you the apps and tips I use to create a memorable Instagram account. I am all about getting creative. It would sound like a cliche to say that it is a passion, but trust me when I say I can spend hours watching and researching how to edit or find creative ways to show a story. For me, Instagram is more than just pretty images or reviews on products I am using but a way to show life in a positive and way and to tell a story in-between.

I thought it was about time to create a series of Instagram blog posts, these posts will range from creating a clean bright Instagram feed to planning your feed and finally creating memorable Instagram stories that not only look good but make your followers coming back for more.

Super Sunnah Foods Brunch

I was invited to a very special brunch by ladies club,  with guest speaker Nutritionist Karimah Bint Dawoud.
The concept of this brunch was to raise nutritional awareness focusing on fad healthy foods that are currently trending, as well as understanding what we actually should be consuming. 
We had a look at Karimah Bint Dawoud's current book, Scared Super Sunnah Foods. Karimah is an award-winning cookbook writer and a nutritionist. She introduced us to some of the Sacred Sunnah Supper Foods that are mentioned in the Quran, and the benefits of these foods. The brunch was fittingly held in the uber cool Planet Organic canteen.
Fait Maison

Fait Maison

Flower window scapes are my weakness, charming window displays that pretty much lure you in the store or restaurant. Fait Maison has just that. This must-visit cafe is perfect for sweet tea or a halal brunch. But more than anything the Parisian feel of the restaurant is sure does make one feel like they are in a pastel dream.

Middle Path Soapery & discount code

Oxford St, Lush spa

Lush Spa Tailor made review

A Spa day is always needed. Who can decline an opportunity to have someone pamper you and let go of all the tensions in your body? That is exactly what I needed! After constantly being hunched over a sewing machine, overworking and sleepless nights sewing has taken a toll over my body. Thus making me a walking complaining human that is repeatedly suffering from neck and back pains.

A friend of mine thought I much deserved a day off and relax in a spa and got me a lush voucher. Now I would be crazy to say no to that. I booked myself a tailor-made lush spa treatment at the Lush branch in Oxford-street.

The tailor-made treatment is inspired by a nautical daydream, with the intention to feel free in body and mind.

The Ordinary Skincare

My skincare is something that I dont mess around with and take extremely seriously. I have always suffered from acne. It started in my early teens and has progressed into my adult life. However, now I suffer more from hormonal acne and a pimple or two. But my biggest problems is congested skin, and large pore. So I am always on the lookout for something that will improve my skin. The ordinary has been on my mental list of skincare that I have wanted to try. There has been a lot of hype around the ordinary skin care, and the price range makes it even more super!
Selfridges Oxford street

Aubaine- A piece of France in London

What would you do if I told you? Inside one of the most gorgeous department stores in London, Selfridges, on the second floor conveniently near the shoe department which is every girl's best friend. There is a cute little restaurant tucked in the corner which will transport you straight to France? Hard to believe right? But I kid you not. Aubaine restaurant is all kinds of pretty.

Sugar cookie recipe-eid party

Homemade cookies always bring the comfort to any party. Sugar cookies take it to the next level. I don't know if you can even have a party without a batch of fresh sugar cookies on the table. They brighten the room and taste so good! Your guests will be begging for the recipe before they leave.

Tea party decorations- Eid party

You can never go wrong with a tea party, now imagine an Eid tea party, dream come true, right?

Farm girl Cafe

That Farm Girl Experience

Farm Girl cafe is the Instagram cafe for brunch. It has everything you will need for the perfect Instagram brunch shot. From the whitewashed walls when you enter to the outside seating perfect during the summer weather. To that avocado toast! hey is it an Instagram brunch without avocado? It's a cute cafe in Notting Hill, close to Portobello Road, ideal for a spot shopping and sightseeing. And if you go during Friday or the weekend you catch the Portobello market and find some cool quirky items.

Happy Healthy Picnic & Recipe

It doesn't quite feel like summer without a mandatory picnic. Eating out in the fresh air whilst sitting on crisp grass is a feeling like no other. I for one sure do enjoy it just as much as eating in a fancy cafe. Nothing can replace nature, and eating under the shade of trees does give a sense of a feeling alive that can't be experienced in an enclosed space.
Mayfield lavender farm

Lavender- the colour and scent of Provence

A break away from the busy city is just what I needed and I had the perfect opportunity to do that when I was invited to visit a Lavender farm with the team of Karimahs Cuisina, a healthy holistic well-being organization that aims to bring mindfulness in our food. As well as helping feed the homeless in central London with healthy halal and vegan food to the poor and needy.

Farmacy kitchen

For a while I have wanted to visit Farmacy Kitchen, it looks splendid from the outside, you must by now know that I am an avid admirer of storefronts. But more than anything I wanted to experience the food that they offer.

Istanbul, Turkey

Travel Guide: Istanbul part 2

Part two of my Istanbul Diaries is finally up yay! This post will contain my adventures on the Taksim side of Istanbul. The city is big and is divided into two parts European and Asian side. I spent my trip on the European side. The European side is split up by the golden horn which separates the historic center of Istanbul from the rest of the city by 5 bridges.

Pink fig naked cake

As a lover of a cup of good old tea, it's only natural for me to love the next best thing: cakes. What can say other than; I absolutely adore cakes! This week I made this mouth-watering, naked fig cake, with my favourite ingredients. I just had to share it! It's as tasty as it is gorgeous to look at.

Mayfair, London

That pink flower wall, must be Elan Cafe

Now I am pretty sure you have seen Elan cafe all over Instagram. The prettiest flower & pink cafe in London.

Elan is a dainty cafe, in the heart of Mayfair right opposite Hyde Park. The interior and exterior of the cafe sets it apart from most and is what has helped grow is admirers. The famous flower wall and bicycle props in the store make the cafe an Instagram photo shoot oasis. As a person who loves the attention to details, the interior alone made this cafe that much more special to me. Plush velvet chairs in a cool green shade, brass contrast throughout and flowers galore.
