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.

Women really are fascinating creatures aren’t they? I guess I’ve only realised this and the true strength and power of women since growing up and becoming one. We are soft enough to be nurturing mothers, yet strong enough to move mountains; we are empathetic enough to...read more
So I'm standing here staring at this waterfall. The water gushes down, a cloud-like continuous foam. It is roaring; it's thirst has been quenched from the recent rain fall and it wants the world to know. It's sounds mixed with the wind rustling...read more
I love women. Maybe not in the same way as a red-blooded twenty-two year old male, but I really do. Growing up I guess I didn’t really fully appreciate being a girl. After all, I was born a Pakistani, Muslim female in twentieth century Britain into a working class...read more
We live in a world where pretty much anything is available now - and so, we want it now. This goes from greasy fast food through to Instagram likes, from same-day delivery packages through to on-demand movies and music. We allow speed and convenience to become a major...read more
It was around mid-2015. I was settled happily and comfily in my repeat clients house, as I applied henna to her hands in preparation for her upcoming wedding. We talked and laughed; her mother flitting in and out of the room, admiring my handiwork and telling me how...read more
I’m not one to shy away from the fact that becoming a mother is definitely one of the hardest things I have ever had to do – and I think the challenges of motherhood are magnified even more so for me because of how creative I am as a person. I love to create – I...read more
Moving away from social-media-displays-of-affection and pink and red love hearts every which way you look, February is also Black History Month: 28 days devoted to remembering and celebrating the struggles and achievements of black people throughout history, in...read more
I’ve read and come across information online about out of body experiences or OBEs (even from a really young age when I used to avidly buy SpineChiller magazine every week!) but never have I known or spoken to someone that has actually had one. I don’t believe in...read more
They call you wild – and when I first laid my eyes upon you, I was awestruck. Your energy was something else altogether. I imagined falling free off the edge of your cliff and into the thrashing water below; imagining how I would become entangled in your waves;...read more
Recently there was major uproar across Pakistan and of course globally across social media, regarding the sexual abuse and murder of a beautiful 7-year-old little girl residing in the Kasur area of Punjab, in Pakistan. This little girl went by the name of Zainab...read more
Some days it’s just like this. Some days I just wake up missing home. Missing Manchester. Missing England. Wishing I could be there, have a home there. But it’s just not as easy as that. I made a choice and I’m here. But I miss my city. I miss my country....read more
I can hear the raindrops – sometimes calm, sometimes quiet, and then suddenly loud and strong as if to remind you to not forget that she’s on her way. The candles are ready, lined up on the sideboard as if they know an important job is awaiting them – just like the...read more
There is something just so magical about creating art on a black background. I guess because it’s so void of colour, that when I’m drawing or painting on black, I feel like I am literally bringing something to life. It’s like the colours pop even more on a black...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?
