This is the kind of list (of recommended tried & tested baby gear) that I wish I had when I started preparing my registry 4 years ago. As a first time mom it’s so so overwhelming and having a list like this with details on how it can be useful even in the future is so helpful. So here, after 4 years and 3 kids and lots of trial and error is my list of FAVORITE Recommendations for you!
If you know me you know I love me a rug. My kids room was incomplete as I had been searching for the perfect rug for the longest time. It’s so hard to find a rug that is good for a kids room, that is the right size, and texture for their toys and also one that will not move all the time or misshape.
When you have your 3rd baby you really don’t think you need any new baby products because you either have stuff left over from your previous kids or you just KNOW what the most useful products are. Little did I know that with every new product on the market comes a new possibility of ease for a mother. I am blessed to be able to try them because this allows me to show you why you NEED them if you are about to have a baby or have an infant.
We recently moved into a new apartment 5 months ago and due to limited space in our previous one, I wanted to ensure our toddlers have their bedroom set up nicer. I have always admired how other mothers set up their kids nurseries and wished I could do the same for my babies. Once we moved we knew it was time to have the toddlers share their bedroom so I could make space in our room for the new baby. This meant trying to find a functional bed space allowing for all their toys and clothing storage. In this post, I will take you through how we set up the bedroom.
This is a sponsored post via Jord Watch in which we received a free watch in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
I had been seeing this watch floating around social media for many months and always loved the wood natural look to it, especially with the blue face. Although I think it would look gorgeous on a woman’s hand I felt that this was much more suited for men. I have a very tiny wrist so large watches tend to not suit me. So when JORD reached out to me last month asking if I was interested in collaborating I thought it would be the perfect time to gift my husband this watch for Eid Al Adha (our celebration after the Pilgrimage) and also our anniversary this month!

As a Muslim Mother, it’s very important to find media like Ali Huda, that is relatable and can teach the kids different aspects of their religion in a kid fun way. This market is growing larger and we are seeing more and more Islamic Media for children which is great. I was pleasantly surprised to find out about Ali Huda TV. This product is basically the Netflix for Muslim children. Their goal is to entertain and education Muslim children about Islam in a fun way with 1000’s of shows exclusively for Muslim Kids.
There’s something about becoming a mother that sort of disrupts any skills you had being structured or organized. Well, that’s the case for me at least and some other moms I know. There are mothers who are pros at continuing to stay on top of things and schedules like my super mom sister from And Then She Said. Especially since we just moved apartments and our life is changing in so many ways from the environment, facilities in our complex and most importantly my son starting pre-school this week.
I am so excited to finally be sharing my Part 2 in the Diaper Bag Series where I will be talking about how I pack my Fawn Design Diaper Bag. It’s been a while since my first Fawn Design Review when I launched the blog in November, a lot happened personally, so I ended up postponing Part 2 to be released this month with some special news at the end!

Let’s talk Wallets. I am one of those women who switches wallets like she switches handbags/purses. It was hard to find the right wallet for myself especially once I moved to the US 5 years and had my first baby in 2013. Many of my cards are for loyalty programs I am a part of like Costco, Ikea Family, Babies R Us, Body Shop, Walgreens, Grocery Stores Programs, Credit Card Point Programs, etc.
I found it really hard to store my cards in my previous wallets, I was constantly doubling up the cards and even if I had 10 card slots it wasn’t enough. This made my wallets tear up and I ended up with holes in the card slots and they looked really ugly. So I decided to one day run a google search for wallets.
