It’s Halloween…

Hey hey! ๐Ÿ™‚

Halloween is just around the corner now and many of you will have planned parties or have been invited out by friends to celebrate – by dressing up in different/odd/strange costumes imaginable, to party till late or even trick-or-treating; but as I’m a Muslim, I don’t celebrate it. So I’ll be settling down to watch one of many movies. Sounds boring, you’re probably thinking, but it is not at all boring because I absolutely LOVE watching horror movies! This has become a tradition for me of some sorts.

Even though I don’t celebrate it, I decided to blog and share with you guys these five halloween movies which I have watched and enjoyed.


ย Halloweenย  (1978)

If you are celebrating Halloween completely different this year than the norm, I would love to know so do leave a comment.

And if you do decide to watch any of these movies from above, or if you have seen them already; let me know what you thought about them.

Until next time…

Daily life, Quote of the day

Quote of the Day

Hey hey!

Here was the situation this morning; I woke up to find it pouring down with rain (what else can be expected from the British weather!) The first thought I had was I don’t want to get up I would rather stay here in my warm bed; it’s going to be a horrible day. I’m sure many of you have felt like this at some point in your lives – whether going to school or to work.

So I had a dentist appointment today and I hate, absolutely HATE going to the dentists, I have a serious bout of dental phobia. I was going to make up an excuse andย reschedule it for another day. But then I realised, why was I making the weather an obstacle for myself. It wasn’t going harm me, just get me a little wet which an umbrella could sort out; so I went and I hated it but the important point is that I didn’t make any changes to my plans and got everything done.

Would you let an opportunity slip by? Lets say you had an interview, which could either make or break your career, would you give it a miss just because it was raining?

I wouldn’t!

Until next time…

Quote of the Day: Friendship

Hey hey!

It will be a quick post about friendship today. I’ve just had a lovely dinner out with my friends from work tonight and it just made me think about how important my friends are to me. I’m sure you all would agree; without any friends, life would become quite lonely really, a very boring place.

Here are some of my favourite quotes about friendship, I’d like to share!

A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.
โ€• Elbert Hubbard

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’
โ€• C.S. Lewis

If you have good friends, no matter how much life is sucking , they can make you laugh.
โ€• P.C. Cast

So ask yourself, how important are your friends to you?

Slimming World: Small steps to a new me

Hey hey!

As long as I can remember I never had any qualms over my weight when I was younger, however all that changed when I started secondary school. As the pounds piled on it affected my confidence, I lost my self-esteem and it made me feel self-conscious all the time. I tried a number of different diets but I never took them seriously and still ate or more so stuffed my face with the odd junk food here and then.

So when I read about people losing so much weight whilst on Slimming World, I was abit scepticSlimming Worldal I thought it was the same as the other diets and it wouldn’t work. I still went along to the group with my sister. It won’t be wrong to say I felt daunted, abit apprehensive if I’m honest for that very first group meeting but our consultant, Clair was so supportive and helpful throughout the whole process and pretty soon we were weighed and registered.

It has now been over six months since then and I haven’t looked back since. Losing four pounds in my first week gave me to strength to carry on and it wasn’t long that I had lost my first stone. I was so happy which in turn motivated me and made me more determined to lose weight. So right this moment, I’m so proud to tell you that I have lost over three and a half stones. ๐Ÿ˜€

Joining Simming World was the best decision I made ever, I feel more active, confident and generally more happier with myself than I was before.

If anyone is thinking about joining Slimming World, my advice is to just do it – DON’T overthink it, make that decision and it’ll change your life. Trust me! ๐Ÿ™‚
