Sewing Advice

I really want to start sewing inshallah. I did a long time ago when I was a kid and I still remember the basics. My brother's wedding is coming up and I want to sew the shirt I am going to wear with my lengha. I don't have any sewing materials though. I used to use my mom's things when I lived with her, but ever since I got married, I haven't purchased my own things.

Does anyone have any ideas on what sewing machine is best to get? I don't mind spending a bit on it, but I don't want it to be too expensive, esp. if I hardly end up using it.

Any input would be great if you know anything about sewing!

Until next time...

I'm Back!

Well, I know I'd get busy, but I didn't imagine it would take me this long to get back to my blog! This is a first for me. But, I swear, I have been pretty busy, alhamdulillah. How was everyone's new year? I hope you are all in the best state of health and iman inshallah. 

I just got back from Cancun, Mexico! It was so bloody amazing, mashallah. I LOVE it! I was pretty excited to go, but I hadn't realized I would love it so much. I was worried about what I could do with hijab, but we stayed at a lovely resort in Playa Mujeres and it was very classy. I had no trouble with my hijab at all. Plus, we got a very nice room that had it's own private plunge pool so I could easily go into the water anytime I wanted. 

Here are a few pics from our vacation!

Until next time...
