Give me an adventure trip any day of the week ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ Fun day with the fam at GoApe, Sherwood Forest ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒฒ

This is a shot from last week's @lorealmakeup #LashParadise event, styled by @joeybevan (he was SO sweet and even told me he'd ordered in specific hijab-friendly clothing for me). Photographed by @markcantdotcom - probably the easiest photographer I've ever worked with. Hubsy (who usually photographs me) will read that and do a melodramatic squeal (like this ๐Ÿ˜ฑ) so I'm just gonna put it out there that Osaama is the ABSOLUTE best EVER at

making tea. I mean he gets the shade right every time and knows it's blasphemous to give tea without biscuits. What more can a gal want? ๐Ÿ˜™โ˜•๏ธ

Which one's your fave? ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿฝ The new Shimmer Crushed line at @pearldaisyltd ๐Ÿ’‹ www.pearl-daisy.com

Bride vibes ๐ŸŒน There are days I love my job simply because I get to dress up like a queen - a nice change from the eternal mum-in-PJs look I've perfected over the years. Also, how lovely is a traditional red?? This is a @bibildn outfit - as always, their stuff is amaze. My scarf is the @pearldaisyltd Golden Beige Hijab. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ

Who's down for some pampering? Umm meee! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝ For any sleep deprived mamas out there these @lorealskin Pure Clay Masks are my ultimate skin pick-me-up as they illuminate and purify the skin. My mask bundle is available to buy @amazon and for 24 hours only you can get an additional ยฃ3 off with my code CLAY3 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ Just type 'sleep mask bundle' into the search bar to find it ๐Ÿ˜ฝ #multimasking #ad

Our kitchen flooring is down ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ Now. Your thoughts: kitchen cabinets - are we thinking cream or brown colour? We deffos want a traditional/country type of look; Hubsy's designed a beautiful cream themed one, but I wanna pick your beautiful brains for ideas, too. ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ’ญ Ps - these are wood effect porcelain tiles (still need grouting), from @tilebuster in Leicester.

The other day with @osaama_official, being all merry before finding our car had been broken into. They didn't take anything, although I was secretly hoping Hubsy's super old stash of sweets were swiped. But no, the thieves left his sweets... and also his sunglasses (I am slightly offended at the rejection as they're lovely glasses thank you very much!).
Here we're laughing because @maimaipoppins1 wanted us to stand in front of the giant poster of me to our left, and caption this something about a second wife with my clone. Well. Clone Amena can back awf! ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฝ

Selfies in front of the makeup store mirror ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝ Yesterday, me and my sister were shopping for makeup. After finishing my usual swatching trance, I found my sis chatting with a girl who was having her brows done with the MUA. The girl was a classic Parisian beauty, but seemed really unhappy with herself. She was telling my sister she wanted her brows and features whilst the MUA stood shrugging about how she'd done the best she could with the makeover.

I was blown away. I honestly see women as being beautiful in their own way, yet, understandably, we all have insecurities and dips in self esteem now and then. But this girl was aiming for a standard impossible for her, namely because she's European and my sis is Indian.

It made me wonder about how we can get conditioned to be so dissatisfied with ourselves to the point where only the unattainable becomes the desirable (and not just in looks but in life). When I told the girl she was perfect and pointed out her gorgeous brows and eyes, she actually seemed surprised that someone would call her beautiful.

It goes to show that a few positive words can make all the difference even towards people who, on the outward, don't seem like they "need" it. I believe change happens when we can be kind to one another - human to human - even if the world seems harsh and cruel. That power and potential for change happens in everyday situations where we have the opportunity to truly connect with one another, regardless of our backgrounds. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’œ

Shot with @lorealmakeup today for their new True Match concealer (released next month) ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ Super fun campaign concept and best of all, they're releasing 14 shades!! For a drugstore brand that's AMAZING. Diversity isn't just a buzz word - beauty comes in different forms and it's great to see brands catering to more skin tones ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹

Although I don't necessarily believe the opposite of this to be true (bad things happening if you're a "bad person"), I do totally believe that trying your best to be a loving, compassionate person will ultimately bring you good. It might not be materialistic or tangible, but the good will be in the contentment you feel about your life. Being at peace with where you are right now is the most precious thing of all. I've found that the people who are kindest have actually endured the harshest life circumstances... They live day to day feeling grateful for all the ordinary, everyday things. โค๏ธโœŒ๐Ÿฝ

Lovely dinner celebrating the new @lorealskin face masks... then went to my hotel room and found tonnes of goodies ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ Love! ๐Ÿ’œ Right. Time for some MUCH needed sleep on this massive bed hehe ๐Ÿ˜ด #clayyourway #multimasking
