The WWW - Link Love

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم 
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

The W.W.W! 
Wonderful Web Wonder's that I love this week..or month i guess.

Photography: Blind Photography - what an inspiration, i mean really, go check it out!

Online (Facebook) Game: WeTopia - play for joy and it give's real life charity to children in Haiti and the US, what could be better than that??

Fashion: CoolSpotters - this makes it easy to discover and buy the products, and fashions being used by your favourite celebrities – in their real lives, and in movies and television. So if you liked a dress that someone wore and you wanted to know who designed it or where to buy it, this site is a life saver! Although if it's something really recent, it may not be on the site yet, as I tweeted Alison (Amarixe on youtube) the site because she wanted a shirt from Gossip Girl but it wasn't on there as it was the same night that episode aired, although it may have been added by now.

Song: "With you" by Colorfire i first heard this, and got hooked on it because of the video linked called "Friendship Island", so i thought it's only fair to link that rather than the 'official' music video, (but if you want to check that out then click here.) Not to mention that it always makes me smile when I watch it, the video is very well put together and goes to show that anyone can have a fancy camera, but it's actually about the photographer/videographer behind it and what they do with it. Well done Joey for joining the two together as they make the perfect combo.
The video is of  4 friend's (and youtuber's - i found this video via Fleur & Ingrid, who you may know already) who went to Catalina Island, just off the coast of California, it sound's gorgeous doesn't it? It looks it.
 I dare you to watch it and not feel happy afterwards!

Documentary The business of being born. - I'm highly interested in midwifery and birth so after reading about Amnah's home birth (mashallah!) I watched the trailer and now really want to see the whole thing, I found a link to watch the full version online, but shhh. Although birthing is slightly different here in the UK there are many flaw's to giving birth in an NHS hospital. Although it's free it does have it's downfall's such as the increase in caesarean section's which are generally pushed onto the pregnant woman.

Website: The Halal Food Review - I've found lot's of new place's to eat at, alhamdulilah. Very informative too. They also have a facebook page

Blog:  Muslim Wife Secret's - a great blog i've been reading this past month

Blog post: Need some tips on how to prepare for a Khutbah?  - Then look no further! It also include's pdf notes of the class which i'm sure will be handy to anyone giving a speech or lesson inshallah.

News/Event: The Hajj Exhibition which opened in London at the British Museum. It's priceless when Prince Charles says "hajji" during his speech :  D

Website: Saveur - Recipes, culinary arts and instructions, including lot's of invaluable tip's and trick's, and secret's of culinary school! Check this one out - how to peel an entire garlic bulb within second's, i actually thought they were joking when i first saw it!

...And there I was peeling individual garlic clove's like a novice, tut!
P.S: I used a plastic lunch box and it worked all the same ;)


~~La ilaha il Allah~~

Thank you for the comment. I love reading them all. I'm really sorry if I can't reply to everyone but I do try my best. Hope you understand. Peace.
