My god, it’s been so long since I’ve written here! So I shall slowly start updating you on what’s been going on. First thing’s first, EID! Eid is a festival that takes place to celebrate the end of the month of Ramadan, -to know what Ramadan is check out my post here. Eid took placed on July 17, and here I am posting about it in August :$. Regardless, I love the festival of Eid and thought I’d share it with everyone. The day of Eid starts out by going to Eid prayers in the morning which are performed either in a mosque or somewhere out in a field etc. After the Eid prayer, the parties begin! My Eid day + weekend is usually spent attending multiple parties throughout the day from breakfast, brunch, lunch, evening snacks and dinner! – If you miraculously happen to lose weight in Ramadan, you end up gaining everything back on these days. Eid is also a time when children make money! As families go house to house, the children are often gifted money as an Eid gift (luckily, despite being 20, I still count as a child), they often save up the money, drag their parents to the store and splurge!
Eid is a time of joy and laughter that is spent with family and friends, and we hope that those who are less fortunate can also celebrate their Eid is a happy manner with clothes and food to eid on this day (Ramadan is also a month of charity and giving, Muslims are encouraged to give all year round and especially during this month to charity).
With the mention of clothes, a celebration is not complete without putting on your fancy clothes and jewelry and looking your absolute best! This Eid I wore a traditional outfit of South Asia known as a shalwar kameez.
This outfit I got stitched from Pakistan after seeing a design online and finding out it was out of stock. (I look like the Canadian flag, eh?) < See what I did there 😉

In all, Eid is a day when I let out my inner fashion model and stuffing my face with food all while being surrounded by loved ones.
Keep an eye out, I do plan on updating my blog more often now (I hope!) Until then, Happy Belated Eid Mubarak!
