An Adventurous Mind // Pixelily Designs

I am loving this new kit from Pixelily Designs called Adventurous Mind. It is such a fun kit to work with. I just love the color tone and the elements in this kit.

This is a layout I made using the above kit. My baby is still reluctant to walk. When I took him outside to play he is still having doubts that he can stand and walk.

Have a fun and creative weekend everyone!

Another Balik Kampung checklist

 In less than a week, Muslims all over the world will celebrate Eid. For Malaysian that means "balik kampung" to or travelling back to our hometown to be with our family. Last year I wrote a Balik Kampung checklist to make sure that we don't miss out any important things.

 14
Here are another three things to add to the list...

#1. Make sure that there's no outstanding job that requires your attention. Clear up everything before going for a long leave.

#2. Throw away all unfinished food. Don't left them in a fridge. In a week the food will not be eatable and you are going to throw them away eventually

#3. Fill up your car tank at least a day before your trip. This will safe you time and hassle on the actual travelling day

The important thing is to plan ahead and schedule your trip so that you will avoid rush hour with less traffic and less chances for any unwanted difficulties.
Selamat balik kampung and Happy Eid to every Muslim out there. 

Be safe , be kind and be courtesy especially on the road.

Self Portrait Challenge // 30-day

30-day-selfie
I love a good challenge especially when it involves something that I like to do. Last two weeks Elsie and Ema of ABeautifulMess post about 30 day Self Portrait challenge. I decided to join this challenge because I am always looking for creative ways to take selfie. 

In the end of 30 day challenge you will get a chance to win their new book. This sound exciting to me. I have been taking a selfie almost everyday and I really need to challenge my self to take it to a different level. It still not too late to enter

These are my take on this challenge {taken from 17 July 2013 - 01 August 2013]. 
Camera: iphone5, App: ABeautifulMess App, Hipstamatic and Camera +

Photo Prompt #23 // Fabric

Eid is less then 10 days. People are busy with last minute preparation like buying new clothes and new hijabs. I love wearing Ariani Hijab. It’s simple and comfortable. Suitable for working mother who don’t have extra time to spare putting on fancy shawl.

Challenge #23: Fabric

For today’s challenge I capture this new hijab from Ariani. I love the pattern, the fabric and the color. It’s the only color that I have in my collection – pinkish and coral color combine.

Photo Prompt #22 // Something white

Today is the ending of something familiar and something safe. By August a lot of things are going to change and from my experience people are not very flexible when it comes to change. 
I am a little bit nervous , anxious and excited with this changing. I am so looking forward to something exciting and different especially in my work life. I really want to feel passionate and fun with my job. Lately I am having trouble feeling those important feelings in order to survive 8am - 6pm working hours.

Challenge #22: Something White 
I am really having problem finding something white because I am constantly looking for colors. So today's prompt is a little bit challenging for me because I have to train my eyes to see white.

What is the hardest part of growing up? // 30 things

I am loving my Ramadan so far (not as much as last year Ramadan). Getting up early in the morning for sahur and getting ready for work has it's advantages. I got some extra time to think and explore my thoughts. For today's prompt in 30 things my kids should know about me segment, I choose this prompt: What is the hardest part of growing up? This prompt require me to think all the way back when I was a little girl. I really had a toughest moment or memory growing up. 

hardestpart-growingup
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
" I don't have an easy childhood. On the surface people might think that my life was perfect. I have been struggling with low self esteem since I was a little girl. I always thought that I am not worthy, I don't matter and life was so much better without me. For me the hardest part of growing up was letting go of all the fear of not knowing. Nobody goes through life knowing what lies ahead of them. What we have are AlQuran and Hadith. Follow these and I will be ok. You will be ok. Don't concern yourself with what people think of you but concern yourself with what Allah thinks of you. In away I think I never stop growing up. I still learn new things every singel day and I never stop growing up."

Photo Prompt #21 // What you wore

We are entering the last ten days of Ramadan. This is the time where you increase your ibadah and be good all the time. It’s time to pray and ask for forgiveness.

Challenge #21: What you wore

Since today is Tuesday and I have to go to work, I decided to wear one of my newest clothing collection. It’s a simple dress with glitters scatter around the dress. I bought this dress at SES pesona at 30% discounted price. The purple hijab is from Shazzmin and I bought it at 15% off two weeks ago.

Focus T25 Week 3 Review

I did a review of my week 2 progress for Focus T25 . I don't know why, the more I did these workout the more I feel the challenge. I still check on the box that say "Barely made it". In a way this is good because I can progress and improve.

t25-haniz Weight today: 58.0kg

I am happy that I've managed to shred a few fat (about 0.8kg) in less than a week. Somehow it validate that I am doing something right.

My Review and Tips

  • The schedule for this week is doing Total Body Circuit twice. I think this is the toughest workout in the Alpha phase. I really to be mentally prepared before doing this workout.

  • Focus is really the key with this program. I realize that when I focus more, I feel the burn more and I sweat more too.

  • I think this is also true when you apply it to you Salah. When you focus more , you will feel more. In a way Salah is another form of exercise.

  • I am still able to maintain drinking at least 2 litter of water per night. Having a bottle of water scatter around the house really help promote the drinking habit

  • I didn't get a chance to do two workout this week on the fifth day. I only did one Saturday and the other workout I did it on Sunday. So this week I only got one day of rest from T25 program. I hope I am still burning fat and calories all the time

  • I think mixing between the low impact and the high impact routine is still better than not doing anything at all.

  • Eat right is still important when you are training your body. But once in awhile, I still think it's ok to indulge in Roti Canai in the middle of the night.

  • I am still loving the way I feel after I’ve finished the workout

  • Lunges, Hop and Squad is the combination that I am not looking forward to do. I love doing those routine in a slower version but when you throw in cardio and doing it in a faster tempo, it can really get out of balance.

I am looking forward to Week 4. The Schedule for this week is still doing two Total Body Circuit. Oh boy! I hope this week it will get easier. I might add in Hip Hop Abs in the mix just because I miss doing the routine.

Photo Prompt #20 // Effect

Life Work Balance or Work Life Balance, the theme that our management has been throwing around lately. I think people are getting more stress out to balance between Work and Life. Both world demand a lot of our attention. I do hope that they really meant it. One of the thing that they can do or adopt is giving the option of working from home and flexible working hours. A lot of life related even happened during working hours. Some thing to think about.

Moving on to today’s challenge. It’s a simple challenge. Take any photo of your favorite subject and apply effect to it

Challenge #20: Effects

I took the photo using the iphone 5 camera app, apply filter with camera + and add font with ABeautifulMess app.

Photo Prompt #19 // Black and White

Alhamduillah, it’s a perfect Sunday. I was very busy with the preparation and all the things that need to be done during the day. I only got a chance to capture a few photos in the evening.

If I’m a Vlogger, I might record everthing on video. I love shopping for Eid and I love hunting for things that I normally would not even consider buying.

Challenge #19: Black and White

I am feeling a little bit classic today. So taking photos in black and white is so much fun. I use my iphone native camera and edit them with BeautifulMess App.
