Some days you wake up and you just feel like not getting up from the bed. Everyone has those days, trust me I have had few of those because we just are to busy all the time. Sometimes you may have a important day or just look on point even if you really not..... I have had many of those days the last month so I have some tips to share with you.
1. Take a god shower and get fresh
Most likely if you look good you feel good. Believe me I want to stay in my Pj`s or Bati some days, but I learned that a fresh shower its the best way to start of your day. I get to think clear my head, and start of the day with a clean mind and body. Some days treat yourself a little extra if you have time, take a facemask and put on some make up and that will go a long way on those days you need a little extra.
2. Get out and do something productive
I was that girl who always would wait until the last minute to do thing. But these days I try to get up early,and take notes of what I need to do. That way I can see what I actually have done through out the day, and if it something day I did get to do I just write that down till tomorrow. You don't even have to do a lot if you feeling like a dump, but try to get done one or to.
3. Family, Friends and Food
The three F`s, I know that if I like trash one day my family and friends can 100% get me in a better mood. The three F`s are medicine for the soul. Being with them always makes my laugh and we joe around all day. On the other hand everyone that know`s me specially my man (Liban) knows that food is my joy and happiness. I love food and food it`s always a good idea.
This has to be my most personal blogpost ever. And yes I love fashion and make up, but if you know me, you know that I am the most down to earth person. Since I was 10 years old I was walking around the house saying to mom that I want to adopt 5 children from Africa so they dont have to suffer. I would do anything to put my life aside to help children, and one day that dream will be accomplished.. My grandma is my inspiration, she started a school in Mogadishu some years ago. The school she started was for kids that was unable to get an education for several reasons. Last summer I got to see how my grandma changed 200 children life for the better. Her and my mother are my biggest inspirations and role models and that will forever be.
So it is a Sunday evening and I am here alone with my thoughts that are almost blowing up my mind. Currently I am sitting in my bedroom and writing this blogpost to maybe inspire you to be more thankful. For those of you who dont know I live in in Norway but my parent are from Somalia. I am sitting in my own apartment at the age of 18, my life is full of joy, I have my parent and siblings. I have a freaking Macbook, a TV, food, clothes, water, job etc. I am not lucky and I know that. I know that my parents worked hard to give me this life. They knew what they wanted for their kids, and that life was not possible in our country. I am writing this for all of you who dont know what kind of struggles our parent went through. Some walk through several cities, some might not even know if they will have water or food the next day.
Even though I was five year old when I came to this country I remember it as it was yesterday. I surprised my mom when we went back t and I remember how our house looked like, what kind of furniture we had, our neighbours, and my befriend Zaytun, that I haven't seen in 14 years. I remember when the airplanes took off with me,my younger brother and my younger sister on my mothers lap that had all these thoughts. And when we landed my dad was there waiting for us in cold Norway. We where so happy. Being the oldest of my siblings I remember a bit more then what they do.
I know that my parents struggled, I can not imagine what they went through to give me this life, and God I am thankful for they life they and God gave me. I stand up for all mothers in general but specially mothers like mine that leave everything. And I mean everything, their families, their country, everything that they invested in their country, for us. My mother is my inspiration, I love her and if I become half of the person she is am happy with myself.
I am in tears right now because exactly a year ago I met the most amazing group of children. They made me happy, and no they did not take me anywhere or give me anything. But they filed my heart with joy. They had nothing , and I am so glad that I made them happy for the one week I was there. I remember they where selling mangos and one of them said that they where hungry, and I said why dont you just take one mango. But it was not that easy cause the was supposed to sell those mangos, and they could not even take one. They where sitting there one the sand with no shoes, not much clothes in the middel of War dhigle. (A place in Mogadishu). I bought them 4 mangos and I wish that you could see their faces. Buying mangos made them so happy and thankful. I got to know most of the kids in that area and all of their parents and families, never met more kind hearted people in my life.. Some did not even have any family and their friends where like family.
They invited my over for dinner one time, and their house that was not much of a house but it was home for them. And imagine doing that when they almost had nothing themselves. Since that day I decided to make the most out of that vacation, and I spent all of the money that I had on them and I wish i could that EVERY SINGEL DAY. I miss their smiles, and the joy they gave my heart and the love they gave me.
This is for you Zaytun if you remember me, I remember you and I hope one day I will meet you again. This is for my group of children I met last summer, I have not forgotten you guys, I will be back. This is for all children in every part of the world that are unhappy and dreaming for a better future. I am praying for a better future for you, I am praying to god for a better health for all of you. I am praying for you to have you're parents every singel step of the way. And if you dont I know you will get through it. Those small feet of your walking through the sand will be healed. Every singel tear that are running down your cheek is counted by God, he is always with you. I know taking care of you sibling without a father or mother its hard, but they look up to, they pray for you when they grow up, and they will forever be thankful. Dear child keep your faith.
Hello! How are you guys? Hope you all are well 😊

Hi and how are yall doing?! So it's been a minute or what? The summer here in Norway has not been that good and thats why I have been up to nothing. It's just been work work work( You see what i did there). I have not done one thing on my list yet, but I really want to visit denmark soon, just have to find a day Liban do not work.
After my blogpost about 5 things I want to do this summer, alot of you found out that I was engaged. I kinda kept it to myself, only some of my friend knew. I did that just beacuse I wanted to avoid all the negativity about being engaged young. yall know " Did your parents force you, and all that"
Since then I have gotten some questions about me being engaged at 18. And I thought yall would want a Question and Ask video.
Ask me anything about this topic and I will make another youtube video and post it up here. May you guys have a good night❤️❤️
Summer 2015, I was in Somalia, and not much can top that! . This summer is the first summer in a long time i have spent in Norway, but we been lucky with the weather so thats just fine. But I thought i would make a list of some of the thing i want to do this summer holiday.
1. Take a small trip to Denmark - I have actually never been to Denmark even though it is not that far away. So this summer I wanted to take a ColorLine or something to Denmark. It`s been ages since I have been on a boat so i thought that would be a good idea.
2. Skydiving- So this has been on my list for? I can't even remember how long! Jupp SKYDIVING! I have been watching so many youtube videos and because of that I am just more hyped to do it then ever. So hopefully if that happens this summer I will for sure make a blog about it.
3. Spend my time with my loved once- The few last months have been hectic and I have not been that much with my family and friends. I am looking forward to also meeting some friends of mine that i haven't seen in such a long time.
4. Celebrate EID! - Around 5-7 of July we muslim celebrate eid, i am as usually spending the day with my family and later on with friend,
5. Anniversary- So 1 of August me and Liban have 1 year anniversary of our engagement. Time has seriously flown by. Since both of us work everyday and dont get to see that much of each other this summer, its going to bee nice to have that day off and spend the day with him.
What are your plan this summer, and who are you going to spend it with?
How are you guys doing? And has your summer vacation begun yet? So yesterday I was at my younger sister gradution. I can not belive she is already turning 13!! I met with some of my older teatchers witch was nice. I hav not been to my primary school for 6 years now! Yeah 6 year have already flown by?! After my younger sister graduation i went to moms house to eat iftar. So that was my day. What do you guys want to see on the blog next? I am thinking about bloging about the attack that happend in Orlando, your thoughts? Anywas here are some pictures☺️👌🏾
First thing first, i am sorry for not posting anything on the blog. I have had crazy many exams, so I have been busy with that. For those of you who are muslim, you know that Ramadan is here. This Ramadan is very different since it is my first Ramadan without my family, but with just Liban. It is a bit weird, I am so used to being with my family this time of the year, but with that being said it is nice with Liban as well. So my summer vacation is here, and you guys I am so ecxited for a new beginning. I can't wait. I hope you enjoy your summer vacation as well, with that being said. I have a lot of plans for my blog, update more, put up more videos etc, and I am so excited.
Here some of the meals I have made so far, and seriously can't open my fast without sambusa, is it just me ? I hope your Ramadan is going well,and that you have a blessed month inshallah.
