Miss M Halal Bakeries

Hello my lovelies, With the cold slowly but surely planting itself all around London, I have begun to drink copious amounts of coffee and tea to keep myself warm and cozy.

I had felt supported in my lifestyle choices through... Read More

As I walk by coffee shops and store windows I can already see the Halloween cheer – pumpkins, skeletons, paper cut-outs of bats and cobwebs. I catch people talking about plans for their Halloween costumes and I, myself, have begun scrolling through Pinterest to see what I would like to be on the 31st of October.
