Was feeling a bit girly, more than usual, and decided t’was a good day to put some purple eye shadow on. I’m usually too lazy to do anything more than eyeliner, and if I didn’t feel so blah without eyeliner I wouldn’t even bother with that.
Lately I’ve been wearing mismatched jewelery. Does it really matter if you’ve a amber ring matched with a turquoise bracelet? Of course not. Well, I was sitting on my prayer mat, and suddenly realized that my look matched my rug. I am cool enough! (Of course this does happen to be one of the more crazier colored rugs out there, but it’s as crazy as its owner naturally.)
And then there’s the joy of vintage action sets in Photoshop. It’s addictive. I promise.
I can’t remember what the purple stone is, except that it starts with an S and is from Mexico. Perhaps it’s time to turn to Google.
Flowers, bokeh, crayon scribbles, grunge… Maybe I overdid it with the bokeh, but I’m still proud of myself. That’s the main thing. 😉
April is both Child Abuse Awareness month and Autism Awareness month. Both share the color blue. I get why Child Abuse has the color blue, it is a blue topic, but I’m not sure why they settled on making autism blue. It makes my life easier though, so no complaints.
Muslims have come a long way from the times of the Sayyidina Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam), where a lonely child would be noticed and taken in with love, and where an individual with a disability would be given a job of prominence rather than being shunned aside. Granted, not all people with disabilities can make it far, however the fact that they’re facing a test from Allah calls for mercy. We may not be able to change an entire society, but we can change ourselves and prevent abuse from taking place within our homes and treat others who are different from us with the respect and dignity they deserve and not stigmatize them for a situation they have no control over.
Who knows if green eyeshadow will look good on me, or pale blue for that matter. But we’ll find out soon enough.
