Lacatation Cookies... Yummy!!

Asa sisters!

I just love being a mommy and Kedar is just a perfect little baby that loves his mommy milk. 
I've been nursing since dy one and I have a really good supply but lately I've been having a lot of up and down days. So before it gets worst I decided to do something about it. I went online to see what I can do to up my supply and I ran into a recipe for lacatation cookies. 

Here's the recipe 

1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1 3/4 c. oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 c. almond butter or peanut butter
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. flax
3 T brewer's yeast
1/3 c. water
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
2 c. (12oz) chocolate chips
1 c. chopped nuts of your choice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
In a large bowl, beat almond butter, butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, brewer's yeast, flax and water until creamy.
Mix in eggs.
Gradually beat in flour mixture.
Mix in nuts and chocolate chips.
Add oats slowly, mixing along the way.

Place balls of dough onto greased baking sheets or baking stones.
Press down each ball lightly with a fork.
Bake 12 minutes.

How To Organize Your Hijabs!

As salaamu alaikum... Hello darlings!

I wanted to talk about hijab organization today. Like every other fashionable muslimah, I've racked up on a ridiculous amount of hijabs/khimars/scarves. I have over 150 hijabs and I have NOWHERE TO PUT THEM!!

After some trusty research I found a few solutions. Check them out below. InshaAllah this will help a few of you as it did me.

As always, let me know your thoughts and suggestions ;0)

This is my favorite solution of them all. Grab a few plastic hangers and a few shower curtain rings and voila!!



I see these "scarf" hangers all over but they won't work for me considering the amount that I have.

Check out a few more helpful ideas below.

Fashionable Hijab Accessories!!

As Salaamu Alaikum Wa'rahmatullahi Wa'barakatuhu...

Hey Loves. I recently started experimenting with my hijab and ways to fancy them up when going out. At first I thought hijab accessories were a bit silly and unnecessary but us muslimahs like to get a lil fancy too. After quick research I realized head bands/hair accessories are a great way to dress up a hijab... when done correctly of course. Styling a hijab can go horribly wrong if you don't know what you're doing lol. Check out a few really cool "hijab accessories", including a few Pink Bootz hijab pins, that would compliment a hijab wonderfully. As always, let me know your thoughts ;0)

My Niqab Experience...

As Salaamu Alaikum Sisters!
As a muslimah, I strive to get better and better according to Islamic standards. I study often and try to learn new things as much as I can. Over the summer I found myself fascinated with Niqabs. I admire the commitment and I loved the thought of fully covering my husbands goodies. I decided to try it out. I researched YouTube for "how to" videos and stumbled upon a very modern version of Niqab. The lady who posted the video even gave tips for Niqabi beginners. She said to start by doing it on weekends and with your husband. I was nervous. Brooklyn NY isn't the most comfortable place to begin a Niqabi career, but the style was modern so I went for it one weekend while running errands with hubby. Check out the look below...



I loved it!! I decided to do more research on Niqab, and when I did I realized wearing it in a modern style was sort of disrespectful. I decided to buy an official Niqab and wear it the correct way. See below...



I literally fell in love... and so did my husband. The Niqab gave me a sense of pride. It also helped me to avoid sinning because i didn't want to misrepresent the beautiful symbolism. I had a slight problem tho,,, I couldn't breathe that well and it made me feel slightly claustrophobic. I was so sad but I promised myself I'd try it again during the winter time InshaAllah. Overall it was an amazing experience that I'd love to commit to permanantly one day.
