Moi – Parfum Addict

Uzoddy5u

S’il y a une chose dont j’ai horreur c’est les mauvaises odeurs. Je n’aime pas tout ce qui sent mauvais moi inclut. Et si par hasard il arrive que je sentes mauvais et bien je fais de sorte à ce que ce problème soit résolu.

Moi et les parfums c’est une grande histoire d’amour et ce depuis ma grossesse. Une vendeuse qui travaillait dans une boutique islamique l’avait remarqué quand j’y me rendais pour m’acheter des huiles de parfums. Puis dans la rue, on me faisait remarqué que je sentais bon et on me demandait ce que j’avais mis comme parfum. Il s’agissait essentiellement d’huiles de parfums de la marque Al Nabil et ADN. Certaines me disaient que ces huiles de parfum avaient la même odeur que les parfums de marque tels que Dior et autres.

Ensuite, un jour vint où je me suis dit “Et si nous allions essayer ces parfums de luxe?”. Je l’ai fait récemment et je vais de ce pas vous présenter mes acquisitions: Le Jardin de Monsieur li de Hermès, Samsara de Guerlain, Lady Emblem de Montblanc et Very Irresistible de Givenchy. Hormis l’Eau de toilette de Hermès, je me concentre plus sur les eaux de parfum car à l’origine, ils sont plus intense que les eaux de toilette. De plus, j’ai tendance à m’acheter plusieurs parfums que je juge complémentaires pour pouvoir les marier ensemble car je suis le genre de personne qui est toujours à la recherche des choses uniques.

Je vais essayer de décrire brièvement chaque parfum que je possède.

Le Jardin de Monsieur Li: Sur ma peau l’odeur est légère. Ce côté agrume marqué par l’orange ou le citron? me fait transporter dans un endroit qui paraît pur et serein, un endroit où tout est zen. Mais le seul bémol c’est qu’au bout de quelques minutes l’odeur change et cela est dû à mon type de peau. Du coup, je suis obligé de le marier à un autre parfum mais je n’ai pas encore trouver lequel s’additionne le mieux au Jardin de Monsieur Li.

Lady Emblem: Le parfum est très frais, fleuri je crois? mais aussi boisé. Je reconnais le côté fruité et j’aime bien pour le coup. D’ordinaire je ne supporte pas trop les parfums sucrés. Je me rappelle la fois où j’ai acheté Luna de Nina Ricci, mon Dieu je l’ai revendu direct :D. Alors ce que j’aime faire c’est d’associer Lady Emblem à Show de Thierry Mugler, les deux forment une excellente odeur.

Very Irresistible Eau de Parfum: J’aime beaucoup ce parfum. Mon Dieu, le fait de le sentir c’est comme une drogue. C’est un parfum qui fait que l’on tombe amoureux de soi-même lol. Le parfum a une odeur de type fleuri, et ce genre de senteur c’est tout à fait mon style.

Samsara: Mash Allah quel beau parfum! Je ne savais pas que les parfumeurs s’aventuraient dans le monde oriental et quand ils le font, il en résulte des odeurs impressionnantes. Samsara m’a surpris, voire étonnée. Je l’aime beaucoup car il a une odeur que l’on ne retrouve pas sur les gens dans la rue (comme c’est le cas avec le Lady Millon beurk!!!). Aussi, pour le porter il me semble qu’il faut être une femme de caractère. On perçoit l’odeur du jasmin si je ne me trompe pas et l’ylang l’ylang. Pour le moment, ce parfum je le porte seul, mais si plus tard je trouve un senteur qui se marie à lui, eh bien je les associerai ensemble.

Voilà mon article est terminé. N’hésitez pas à laisser en commentaire le nom de votre parfum préféré car j’aime bien en découvrir de nouveaux.

Yemen’s Nawal Al Maghafi Reminds World Of The Forgotten War

“Unlike in Syria, the UK and US are two of the primary causes of the problem in Yemen. Put simply, a coalition of the wealthiest Arab states have joined forces to bomb and starve one of the poorest, with the assistance of two of the world’s richest and most powerful powers.
In my five years of covering Yemen, international headlines have morphed from optimism to despair. In the early weeks of the Arab Spring, everyone was hailing “Yemen: the peaceful revolution”. Today, as the country reckons with its gravest crisis in decades, the main story has become “Yemen: the forgotten war.” Nawal Al Maghafi

The Human Lens

Earlier this week, on The Human Lens I wrote about the horrifying war in Yemen and how the world’s indifference continues while civilians are being bombed and butchered by the war participants. Today I bring you a round-up of the latest events in the war-torn country by an award-winning journalist and filmmaker whose work has been featured across international media.

There are no words to describe this young woman; Nawal Al Maghafi and her courage, determination and resourcefulness in bringing to this world the news about a war that needs world attention.  In 2011, she had her first meeting with Ali Al Imad and the Houthi leaders in Sa’adah Yemen. Bravely, she traveled incognito with a 13-year old Houthi guide, complete with AK47, her filming equipment hidden beneath her traditional Yemeni clothing, gathering the testimonies of many families who had lost their relatives in the escalating conflict.

Haircare Tips that Works For Me

Asalam Alaykum lovelies. Here I am sharing haircare tips that really helped me repair and grow my hair. Before getting on a haircare journey, it is necessary to analyze your hair so that you can get the appropriate products. Furthermore, once you get the product made for your type of hair, it is important to check whether your hair respond to it positively or not. In fact, it happens that a product is designed for your hair type but it won’t work on your hair and it can take months for you to find the right products that will make wonder to your hair.

As for me, I have African hair type. My hair is coarse and thick. The three major problems I have are dryness, dandruff and itchy scalp. Below you can find the tips that helped me handle my hair.

1) Oils

To oil one’s hair is a must when dealing with dryness. There are several oils provided to us by God and some oils work best for specific hair types. As far as I’m concerned, olive oil, coconut oil, black seed oil and almond oil are what work best for me.

Olive/coconut/almond oil are used to bring moisture to my hair while black seed oil soothes my scalp itching.

I oil my hair once a week and leave it for at least one hour under a plastic bag.

2) Salt scrub

Before using salt scrub I used the sugar one but I found it was too mild for my scalp condition. It did not soothe the itches I felt on my scalp nor did it remove the “oily dandruff” I had. Well, I must also say that I did not use the sugar scrub on a regular basis maybe that is why I did not see any result.

Anyway I shifted to salt scrub and I must say I LOVE IT. The one I use is made of ground salt, olive/coconut oil and lemon juice. I do not feel any itches on my scalp after using it and my scalp breathes again and feels clean. I love that sensation!

I apply the salt scrub once a week and will do it until my scalp itching is gone.

3) Essential oils

Essential oils play an important role in my haircare routine. Peppermint, tea tree and ginger are my favorite.

Peppermint has antimicrobial properties, it stimulates the scalp and help in removing dandruff.

Ginger essential oil is an antiseptic. It also helps in hair growth because it stimulates blood circulation. It can be used as a treatment for hair loss, dandruff and split ends.

Tea tree has anti fungal, antibacterial, antiseptic, antibacterial properties. It removes dead cells and prevents head lice and dandruff.

From the day I have combined the above essential oils my hair feels great. I do not have much split ends, my hair is not as dry as before and my scalp feels refreshed.

4) Apple cider vinegar rinse

Apple cider vinegar rinse is such a darling. Indeed, did you know that shampoo have a pH level different than our scalp? So to restore the pH of our scalp apple cider vinegar rinse is a very helpful tip. From the time I used that technique my hair became thick, shiny, it also soothed my scalp. Just wow!!!

5) Shampoo: avoid harsh ones!

Many shampoo are loaded with chemicals that irritate and are aggressive to our scalp. And when the scalp is “in danger” it respond negatively thus leading to hair problems.

Some of the harsh ingredients that you should avoid in a shampoo are: ammonium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, polyethylene glycol, PEG, DEA, parabens, alcohol, formaldehyde, dimethicone, lanolin, petroleum, mineral oil. These ingredients cause scalp irritation, they can lead to hair loss while parabens affect your hormonal balance.

For more info about the dangers of harsh ingredients in your shampoo, you can check out this link.

6) Deep condition!

After my shampoo, it is important for me to deep condition my hair as it restores the moisture I lost and it helps in preventing hair damage. After deep conditioning, my hair feels soft and is more manageable.

That’s all I do. Well, by reading you might have the feeling that there are many things to do but in reality it is very easy. And what about you? What are the tips or natural remedies that work best for your hair?

10 Beautiful Aspects of a Muslimah

Asalam Alaykum sisters. Here is a beautiful article of the various quality a Muslim woman possesses. May Allah help us strive in attaining these beautiful aspects. Amin ♥

Muslim Words

1. Her Obedience to the Creator: A practising Muslim man loves to have a practising Muslim wife; who knows that the life of this world is nothing but a test from her Lord; giving her an opportunity to come closer and closer to Allāh (ﷻ) doing more and more good deeds to please Him, restricting herself from the desires of her inner self that go against the will of her Creator.
