I can’t believe summer is almost to an end here in Canada. I feel like it went by so fast, does anyone else feel the same way?

By the way, I never did give you all an update on how the weddings went…As you know, I was quite nervous attending a wedding with three small children…and…well…let’s just says there were a few surprises!

I had a request from a lovely sister to discuss Halloween and Islam.

The main reason why Muslims don’t celebrate Halloween is because this holiday is based on ancient pagan culture and therefore is shirk.

In this picture, I’am wearing my Lu’Lu’ Bag hijab and handchain. You can find Lu’Lu’Bag at http://www.lulu-bag.net or on Instagram @lulu_bag. Here’s my review:

Everything from the customer service to the products themselves are AMAZING! Sister Nina (owner of Lu’Lu’ Bag) has a heart of gold, she is so sweet, caring, and professional! Her products are absolutely stunning! The hijabs I recieved are PERFECT for summer, as they are light weight and they are maxi hijabs- so yes, they provide full coverage! The handchains are just gorgeous and of high quality! Please go follow and support my beautiful sister!

Here’s the description from Lu’Lu’ Bag’s website: “Lu’Lu’ Bag is a subscription box with a difference. It comes in a shape of a giftbag with a scarf and accessories to match. It is mainly geared towards the ladies who use scarves daily and would appreciate a new selection every month. The scarf always comes with two to three other pieces, such as jewellery, pins, underscarves and even pincushions. A range of subscriptions are available, as well as the option to buy the Lu’Lu’ Bag once or whenever you feel like.”
