Love and Heartbreak Aren’t Limited To Romantic Relationships

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, and we are reminded, yet again, of love and heartbreak. This is also the time for women to reminisce (or get over) their ex, celebrate…

5 Anti-Aging Remedies to Preserve Your Youth

Many people perceive the aging process to be undesirable.

While everyone grows older, some people can thrive and look more youthful as they increase in age….


This Video About Self-Love Is All You Need To See Today

Love is in the air or something like that, so everyone is saying. If you don’t have a valentine or galentine, you’re probably safe from the haram police at least. But that’s neither here nor there because this isn’t a post to debate whether or not V-day is haram or not. All joking aside, we…


POEM: The Girl in the Mirror

Editor’s note: This poem reflects the inner struggle we feel in a world where we have been told to look in the mirror and recognize ourselves as flawed. But what does it take to love ourselves? What does it take to see ourselves as beautiful? The exact same thing that makes us flawed. She stares…


Start Your Week With These 7 Affirmations

Bismillah. I used to not believe in the effect that affirmations have on our mindset. I would associate affirmations with what I thought to be cliche messages like “You’re a rockstar,” or “Believe in yourself.” Then one day, I took an imposter syndrome workshop at this co-working space in Chicago. I learned that “Imposter Syndrome,”…

Here’s Why Weight Loss Isn’t Your Ultimate Solution

TW: mention of eating disorders. I remember looking in the mirror without my glasses on, and just seeing a big, blurry fuzz. I was happier like that. I was glad I couldn’t see my body — tree trunk arms, thighs that wobbled at any slight movement, and a stomach that hung grossly over the waistband…


Read My Lips: Ugly Doesn’t Exist

It’s so hard to believe that our imperfections are in fact normal and common. It’s hard to accept that the “flaws” aren’t real, and that ugly doesn’t exist. Society, media, and beauty industries have influenced us all our lives. We have grown to give into the lies that stretch marks need to disappear; that pimples…


Here’s Why I’m Done Apologizing for Not Being a Stick Figure

I am a full-figured, voluptuous woman. Some people can relate, while others simply judge. Weight has always been a battle I tried to defeat. Just this year, I realized that it is not a war I need to fight; it is a piece of me I need to accept. Many can identify with this internal…


Finding the World Within Yourself

Think about it. It’s subconscious, but you’re with yourself and your own company all the time. No one experiences you as you do. No matter how much another person might mean to you, they will never know you more than you know yourself, even if you think they do. I learned this personally through living…


How Hard Did Age Hit You?

We live in a youth-obsessed culture. Advertisers bombard us with products claiming to hold the key to eternal youth–buy this and you will look and feel younger. As if our value slowly diminishes with age. Society plants the seed that these are the best years of our lives. Websites provide endless lists of things we…


Do Cosmetic Procedures Alter Our Perception of Beauty?

What is beauty? How do we make standards for something that is literally based on a human being’s perception, and differs from everyone else’s? How do we judge “beautiful”? What makes certain features supposedly “not beautiful”? Why are some of our typical attributes viewed as flaws? And why on earth do we care so much…
