LOOK LIKE YOURSELF, BE YOU!

Todays reflection ♥
One thing I find myself thinking a lot about is Self love. In todays society with movies, magazines & social media everything has gotten superficial. People want to look like others and be like others so they’ve totally forgotten about themselves. A lot of people are preoccupied wanting to change themselves into other people they look up to, and they forget about their own talents, abilities and looks. People tend to forget their own strengths and what makes them unique. Why does everyone have to have big lips, behinds and be thin? Why does everyone want to look like the Hadids, sing like Beyonce and act like Viola Davis? I mean hey I would too but that doesn’t mean I forget me, myself & I.

It is nothing wrong with looking up to someone and wanting to be like them, to a certain degree but don’t lose yourself on the way. Focus on your look; what do you like about yourself (highlight that!) & what do you like less about yourself (learn to love it!)? Focus on your talent and abilities; what can you bring to the table? What can you contribute to the world?

If you focus on looking like someone else and being someone else then the world loses someone like you. You were meant to be you. Don’t make us have a billion Kardashians and none of You.

What I disliked most about myself was my smile, I used to not like how my teeth were bigger than others and how much they were showing when I smiled and laughed. I learned to see it from another perspective and learned to love it. Now I see it as a good thing; when I smile/laugh you can see it through my whole face and my big smile! I love that it shows so much when I am happy!

What do you Love about yourself? What do you dislike about yourself? How can you change that? #SELFLOVE

Paros kind of Love

PAROS! Oh lovely, cozy & oh so beautiful Paros. This island was one of my favorites. The people there were probably aliens, I think they were from another planet.. Lol. Everyone was so kind! In the shops, restaurants and streets. There were families and friends everywhere and you could feel how calm and nice the vibe was. No stress or anger or any kind of negative feeling. Everyone smiled and they felt super happy. Loved that cute little unicorn island with its unicorns!

I can feel it in the air!

I love how much I could feel the spring vibes this week, a little rain, sunshine and nice breeze. It made me so excited every morning on my way to work. Today was the best! ♥ Me and my friend went out for a walk and took some pictures and videos! The sun was shining so bright and it was so much fun not freezing to death 🙂 Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

Why am I making bracelets? #Forhumanity

So a couple of months ago I was sitting by the computer and just looking through my facebook feed. As every other night I see different pictures and videos of children, women and men being brutally murdered (those days were a lot about Aleppo). Every night, for a long time, I was so sad and felt so helpless. I kept looking at our fellow humans leaving this world too soon, children crying and mothers sreaming & I REALLY WANTED TO DO SOMETHING! I kept thinking that there is nothing I could do..

One night I saw a lot of sad and horrible pictures of syrian refugees leaving their homes and trying to escape a war they did not sign up for. I then thought about people that actually make it out of the cities and areas that are war zones and people leaving their homes with nothing… At that moment I knew that I wanted to help those people, the people with nothing. I may not be able to end the war or change that conflict but I can still help my brothers and sisters one way or another. So I kept thinking about how I could help. I reflected on what I like, or what I can make myself, that could raise money and the first thing I thought of was bracelets. I LOVE bracelets and thought why not make simple ones and sell them! I did not let times pass after coming up with that idea because that would have lead to me not doing anything so the second I came up with that idea I went and bought a couple of pearls.

I had some of my wonderful friends come over from time to time to make bracelets with me (since they wanted to hihi). That was so cozy and nice! May they get ajr for their effort and time. Extra shout out to Milka for making a lot of them! 🙂 Making the bracelets with friends and with so much love, made the whole process even more lovely. The bracelets were made with love, compassion and happiness & I hope that the money coming out of this process will make people in Syria feel loved, important and happy iA! 🙂

Bracelets you’ve seen before:

I hope everyone got something out of reading this post. I hope you know that YOU can help and YOU can make a change, if not a big one at least a small one, if not alone at least with friends or family. Something everyone can do is to pray to God to help our brothers and sisters.

Stand with Syria Armband #Charity

To my swedish readers:
Hej!
Jag har länge velat göra något för att hjälpa våra bröder och systrar i Syrien. Även om jag inte kan ändra på konflikten och få fred i landet så vill jag ändå hjälpa de som påverkas utav kriget.

Som många av er vet har jag, med hjälp av några underbara vänner, fixat armband som jag nu säljer. Allt som samlas in går oavkortat till den aktuella insamlingen, som är till Israa Abdalis humanitära hjälpverksamhet, STAND WITH SYRIA.  Stand with Syria har samlat ihop pengar och köpt olika saker som de syriska flyktingarna är i störst behov av just nu. SWS  fyller containers och skickar ner olika nödvändigheter. De tillgodoser grundläggande behov av skydd, mat och medicinsk utrustning m.m. De är super duktiga på att uppdatera och dela med sig bilder samt videos om processen, för att visa er att hjälpen når fram! Av dessa flertal, underbara, anledningar har jag valt att donera det som samlas in till SWS.

Hur beställer man?
Meddela mig via instadirect (instagram @hijabiwithlove) eller mejla mig på sara.harrami@hotmail.com 🙂

Hur mycket kostar ett armband?
Ett armband säljs för 50 kr MEN man får själv bestämma om man vill betala mer än så, inte för att jag tycker att mina armband är mer värda, utan för att det handlar om själva donationen samt hjälpen! 🙂 50 kr eller 50+.

Vill du följa SWS olika projekt samt arbete så kan du följa de via instagram: @stand_with_syria.

2016, Alhamdulillah! (Picturetime! TB!)

Aaaand another year has passed and as always I’m super thankful for everything I’ve been through and experienced this year. I thank God for all the new memories and for a year of good health, blessings, family, happiness, Love and God. I pray that 2017 will be a better year for everyone on this planet, for every human being. It doesn’t matter what race, religion or gender.. I just hope God blesses our human race and makes 2017 more peaceful. Humanity failed itself during 2016, so I hope we’ll sprinkle love and kindness everywhere we go during 2017.

May Allah give our brothers and sisters around the world a better life. May Allah bless us with pure hearts, with patience, with good morals and characters. May we all live in happiness and peace. Most importantly, may God guide us through another year and through life. Amen! 

I’ve had a wonderful year with friends and family, there have been weddings, graduations and trips etc. Alhamdulillah for everything! I thought I’d share some pics as a throwback of 2016. Hope you enjoy!!

I Believe – Music Video #OneLove

Salam!
I thought it would be a great time to share Brandon Jenners EP that came out in a time where it sure is needed! I loved the message so much so I decided to be apart of the video to spread that love (and diversity) in the music video.

I’ve been listening to Brandon and Leah Jenners music for a while. I try to listen to music that has a positive and happy message, about love or life in general and some of their songs sure are about those things BUT this one by B.Jenner is one of my favourites. We live in a world and a time of sadness, wars and racism, just so much hate and that’s why I love the light that this song/video displays.

The message of the song is to believe in one another, for people to believe and live in peace. The video displays different people from all over the world that share different beliefs and what they love. Such a captivating song with depth and filled with love.

Thank you Brandon Jenner for being a sweet soul and using what you do to spread a good message. Be kind to one another & be what you want to see in the world. 🙂

Can you spot me? You can see me twice.

Focus on Love.

So this has been an interesting, sad and depressing weekend.. All of us probably know by now that a lot of people have died around the world just this week! We have lost a lot of brothers and sister in different countries for different reasons. There’s a lot of killing and hate right now, but out of that we always see the Love and Solidarity between people. People go out and show love to different groups of people, they show love to different ethnicities & religions etc and I think that’s AWESOME! People are trying to outshine the hate with Love and that is soo the way to go! If you want to live in a loving society you have to spread love, what you put out there is what you see!! People need to understand this. You can’t go around being mad and hating on people and expect to see a happy and loving world. It doesn’t make sence.

We clearly see how society works (media & politicians etc), how some countries gets mentioned a lot and some don’t, how some crimes are worse than others and what gets the most attention etc. But this is just what a few people in power wants us to see and wants us to focus on. That is why it made me so happy to see how a lot of people go out on social media to write and show love & respect to everybody out there. There is a lot of hate out there but there is even more Love! Focus on Love people.

Lets get back our humanity. Be kind, be loving, be understanding and last but not least be nice. 🙂 #PrayfortheWorld
// From your loving muslim sister, Hijabi with love.

Saturday turn up!

Salam! ♥
This weekend was so much fun. I met some old friends that I grew up with which is always nice, and my close friends were also there. We had a mini celebration for my sister and my nephew. Such a cozy gathering! We ate dinner and just spoke the whole evening, catching up. We basically ate, talked, ate and talked #repeat. You can never go wrong with that. And I tried a new cake, with banana and raspberry, LOVED it!
