Wednesday is all about Woman Crush’s so make sure to use the #wcw hashtag when posting. In the last week I have had some major crushes. From gorgeous, healthy hair strands to beautiful body art. Veronica has been a client of Henna Sooq‘s for quite some time now and she loves Red Raj henna powder for her natural hair coloring. Just how beautiful and healthy her hair is? “Veronica Fensel is a top wedding hair and makeup professional with years of experience in the industry.

Back in Maryland

Back in Maryland

I’m back! I got in late Thursday evening. Stay tuned for my coming blog post: 2 Cities in Ten Days. I drove with all 6 kiddos across the border into the USA from  Canada which took me a total of about 12 hours. It should really only be about 9 hours but we stopped a few times and I got really tired a few times but we made it. It’s great to be back home in Maryland. People always ask me if I prefer Canada over the USA or vice versa. I actually like each place for different reasons. I always will love home (Canada) since those are my roots. Maryland is an area where I feel like I’ve become myself and that I’m able to fully express who I am and what I do. People ask if I’m scared or if bad things have happened to me because I am Muslim but that isn’t the case and I really take that as a blessing because I don’t know what I’d do in those situations. Our main goal is to make it home though, right? So I need to focus on that and not everything else because my husband needs me and my kids want their mother. This discussion could be a whole other blog post. Updates. I apologize for any delayed email replies and hair/henna consultations as I handle those myself and I’m pretty backed up. I’ll be playing catch up for a little bit. I also owe you all the final winners of our 30 days of Ramadan Prizes. I’ll have that up and posted by tomorrow....

A PhotoShoot Will be the best decision you ever made

A PhotoShoot Will be the best decision you ever made

Not only is a photoshoot a huge part of you, your brand and your passion, it’s also so much fun! How could you not want to? For a long time I’ve been dreaming of a photoshoot combining natural hair, henna body art and beautiful women in natural light. This past weekend we made it happen. Our team consisted of 3 gorgeous models: Denise of LocCrush, Alexis of Aramintarose and Lara of NomadicBellyDance, our amazingly talented stylist and photographer Danielle of DFinney Photography and Denyelle our pro makeup artist and assistant Ellis. I can’t even begin to express the talent and the magic we created. My process I came across Danielle’s work often on Instagram. Her work is amazing and I’m just in awe of her photos. I also saw in her what my vision was. I love natural light and photography is one of my passions but you can’t do everything yourself. We all need help. We just have to find the right people. I also wanted to have the insight from others. I wanted to fuse artistic talent together where we would feed off each other. Then I decided to reach out to her. From there we set a date and the planning stages began. Our first date didn’t work out as I had a collaboration with Whole Foods in Columbia at Wine in the Woods that I couldn’t pass up. Luckily Danielle understood and was able to accommodate a new date. That worked out as well because the weather that weekend was not photoshoot worthy. Being that this was to be my very first photoshoot I was...
