Here, I write on issues that affect us around the world focussing on solutions and raising global consciousness. I also explore social and cultural issues of interest to me, which I believe need to be spoken about openly in order for change to come.
I believe life is an ever-changing journey of growth and self-betterment. Here you will find posts and reviews on things I love or have really enjoyed, posts on and interviews with people that inspire me to become better, as well as things I have come across that have opened my eyes even further or encouraged me to ask questions.
As well as being a passionate writer and journalist, I am also a passionate artist. It is one of the places where I feel the most peace. Expect to find posts here on the stories behind my own artistic creations as well as reviews on the products I use to create my work.

As a child and even well into my adolescence, I was taught to believe that a Muslim woman marrying outside of her religion was the worst thing she could do. Deep inside, even from a young age, I questioned such ideologies however, and never really...read more
I was born to write. Ever since I was a little girl, with a big gap-toothed smile and crazy, curly hair, walking around like a miniature female version of my dad, words have always been my friends. Books became my whole world, losing myself in them as I escaped the...read more
There is a problem in South Asian communities – even among South Asians born and brought up in western 21st century Britain. That problem is one of superiority and one that as a professional henna artist I have experienced first hand one too many times. Back in...read more
When I first started writing for the newspaper here in Mauritius back in 2015, I sat down with le husband and compiled a list of inspiring Mauritian humans that I would like to interview. Shelina Permalloo, the 2012 BBC Masterchef winner, was on that list and so the...read more
Every time I think about what happened on that awful night one year ago in one of the richest cities in the world, my stomach turns and my heart skips a beat. I am well aware that truly horrible things happen all around the world on a daily basis, but there is...read more
Paul Choy is a man of many talents but is most well known for his photojournalism – and someone that I am incredibly inspired by in my own work. Anyone will tell you that his work is enriching, moving and beautiful but more impactful for me is the effortless way in...read more
My own Feelings About Ramadan Through the Ages With each year that passes, for me, Ramadan seems to bring a new set of thoughts and feelings. (For those that don’t know much about Ramadan, check out my post ‘Why I Fast’.) I remember being so excited about keeping a...read more
So something amazing happened recently. I got the chance to go out in the evening ALONE. No girl child crying because she wanted to suckle at my boob and no boy child tugging me in a million different directions. For the first time in over 16 months, I finally got...read more
As a child of a working-class immigrant family who arrived in the UK from Pakistan in the 1970’s, up until the point that I moved to Mauritius I never felt that I didn’t belong. Although I do remember hearing racist terms and jokes being thrown around the playground...read more
I love coming across inspiring people living conscious, mindful lives which is why upon crossing paths with Béa Chan who runs the slow-travel and slow-living blog Mademoiselle Nomad, I knew I had to meet her for an interview. After quickly establishing a friendship in...read more
You don't have to look like everyone else. You don't have to sound like everyone else. You don't have to buy what everyone else is buying or go where everyone else is going for the perfect shot for the 'gram. You don't have to think like everyone else. You don't have...read more
How many times do we have to scream that black lives matter before the world begins to listen? It is way too often that I see the news of another black man having been shot dead at the hands of white police officers in America and quite frankly, I am sick of it....read more
I’ve been planning to write about my hypnobirthing experience for a while now (my daughter is now 15 months old after all!) but it just hasn’t happened – sorry about that! A couple of weeks ago, I read the Unmumsy Mum’s account of her hypnobirthing experience with...read more
Hi, I’m Sabah – a 29-year-old British Asian writer, artist and journalist, who believes deeply in the saying
“be the change you wish to see in the world”.
This conscious blog is my personal little corner of the Internet in which I share my journey of self-discovery, spirituality and consciousness through exploring the universe that lies both outside and within us all.
I write about my own life and experiences, social problems and global issues as well as things that make life more beautiful for me – such as art, music and so much more.
So basically, this is me and my varied blog – striving every single day to become the change that I wish to see to help make our world a brighter, happier and safer place for us all. Join me?
