Cooking Chicken Karahi with Daddy | Recipe

Hey gorgeous people.

Firstly thank you if you came here after watching the video on my Youtube channel for the full ingredients to the Chicken Karahi me and Daddy made. 

And if you just visited the blog in general; well then also a huge thank you.

It was so much fun doing something different; and filming with my Dad for once. 

I never actually thought I would ever be able to get him to make an appearance on my channel, but I guess never say never. 

Anyways; before I start blabbing on as always, here is a list of all the ingredients we used for the Chicken Karahi (In Order):

  • 4 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil or Olive Oil
  • 2 Whole Finely Cut Onions
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • Quarter to Half Teaspoon of Red Chilli Powder (Can add more; depends on how spicy you like your food. We eat quite mild, so quarter is usually enough for us)
  • Half Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • 1 Whole Chicken
  • 1 Frozen Ginger
  • 1 Frozen Garlic
  • 1 Frozen Chilli
  • Half Can of Chopped Tomatoes
  • 4 Tablespoons of Yoghurt

Guide to Santorini | #EzzakinsTravels

Another post after a very long time..

I am probably the most inconsistent "blogger" to exist so I am terribly sorry! *holds head in shame*
Even this post was supposed to be out ages ago but as always life takes its toll and I am once again left writing this slightly later than expected; but nonetheless I am making sure it is done as I have lost count in regards to how many of you asked me about my Santorini trip.

Where did you stay?
Was it worth the money?
Was there Halal food available etc?

So I'm going to tackle all of those questions whilst sharing a few images too (pictures do NOT do Santorini justice) and a mini vlog of our trip will also be available on my Youtube Channel so stay tuned for that!!

Every morning breakfast view from our Room.

So let's start of with why I chose Santorini to surprise my husband with for our anniversary!?
Firstly because it is a wife's duty to also plan surprises for her husband and spoil him and treat him as well. We both wanted to visit Santorini as it was on our list of places to visit plus we wanted to go somewhere we haven't been before otherwise I am sure Dubai and Maldives would have been chosen again!
The weather in July/August is also perfect so we thought why not.

Our trip was fairly a short one but it was enough for a little break away.

So starting off with how expensive Santorini is; well let me just tell you that you will need to save up a little bit in order to stay in a nice hotel and have a good experience.
My best advice to all of you which I also did myself was to book a holiday for a shorter amount of time but upgrade your room to one with a better view and a nicer room.
The reason everything is expensive is because people who have their own businesses and companies have to pay 56% tax which makes sense to extract it from tourists haha.

Sunset from our Hotel Room

Anyway moving on to the most important part - The main reason I did this blog post for you guys was - Which hotel did you stay at?
So I booked through Kuoni who gave me a list of their recommended hotels, and I opted for Gold Suites which is based in Imervogli. (It is very high up with a view of the city of Oia and the Calderas)
To be honest what else do you need a view of when you are in Santorini!?

So the hotel was a really cute little luxurious hotel. It basically had all the elements of Santorini which are perfect for a short break away. The best part of the hotel are the rooms as the view is breathtaking and honestly pictures do not do it justice. You can book a room with a swimming pool or a heated jacuzzi to your preference too however only problem is that not all the rooms are private so you may have to ask them for a private room at a higher level so you have privacy if thats what you are looking for!

In regards to Halal food - There was only ONE halal restaurant on the island of Imervogli/Thira which was an Indian Restaurant called Jaipur Palace that only have halal chicken available on request so you'd have to phone them up beforehand just to ensure that they have it. The food was good and quite fairly priced for a touristy area. 
If you are a meat eater and want Halal food then maybe the island isn't the best place unless you are okay to have vegetarian food or seafood. 

I am personally okay with vegetarian but not a seafood fan at all - But it still worked out okay as me and hubsy always travel with lots of snacks when we travel. Our suitcases are filled with food more than clothes haha.

In regards with things to do - There is quite a bit to do as you have a city centre with shops and lots of souvenir stores. You have beaches and cathedrals to visit! We went for a cruise on a boat which served dinner, a quick swim in the Mediterranean sea, and stops at all the beautiful little islands and landmarks etc.

Overall Santorini is beautiful and a must do experience. Pictures and videos just do not do it justice. 

**** 4/5 stars from me only because of the food let down!

Get Rid Of Acne & Acne Scars (Updated)

Hi beauties! And guys if any are reading..

QUICK DISCLAIMER: Please test the products on a small area of your skin before using it in case it does not suit your skin. This is highly unlikely but precautions have to be taken. 
What works for others may not always work for you. You know your skin better than anyone, and it's always best to consult a doctor before. 

So I put up a video on my Youtube channel about how to get rid of acne and acne scars, so I thought I would share a written post about it so you guys can get a more detailed approach as it's hit 110,000+ views and counting.

As you guys may have seen in the video, I had a sudden and very random breakout of acne all over my face which left severe scarring (and I also had a chemical burn due to products being used).

I tried several medication, and several remedies that people recommended but nothing worked for me and it was getting a bit too much to handle.

I used two products listed below which you can read on further about how I used or watch the video towards the bottom of this post.



Now what worked for me may not necessarily work for you as we are all different, however whoever I have recommended this too, has worked (for both the acne pimples and the scarring stage).

After all those products, I tried Tea Tree Oil which I applied for 2-3 days just before going to bed and after those 3 days my acne pimples were completely gone.

It may seem too good to be true but it actually worked - And it is probably because tea tree oil is actually an anti-septic hence clearing all the bacteria. 
A few things to be clear of is DO NOT use tea tree oil on regular pimples or on any other part where you don't have the acne pimples as this may cause some redness on the skin.
Also during the duration of using tea tree oil I didn't moisturize my skin with any creams or products except for a few dabs on the skin where I was really dry (but only during the day)

When applying the tea tree oil, I only dabbed the oil on each individual spot and not over the whole face.

After the pimples had gone, and I was left with the scarring - I stopped using the tea tree oil, and turned to using Bio Oil. 

Now I am truly obsessed with Bio Oil because it is a multi-purpose product and aims to treat for so many things. One of the things it aims to do is get rid of scarring, so I used this all over my face and applied it for a month and all my scars were completely gone. They did initially start fading after a week or two, but for the best results it did take about a month. 
I was so happy with everything it did for my skin, that I use it regularly now as a skin care routine for dehydrated skin and to even out my skin tone and complexion.

To get the best results from Bio Oil, apply twice a day, however I only used it before bed and applied it in circular motions, really allowing it to penetrate into my skin.

I really do hope that this method works for you, and you get rid of your acne pimples and/or acne scarring. But don't ever forget, no matter what happens you are all beautiful in your own unique way!

Hair Routine | Rapunzoil

Second blog post in a week!? What is going on!?? Haha!

So basically I really feel this product deserved a blog post of it's own hence why I am here typing away. // I am frequently being asked about what products I use on my hair and how I maintain it?

Get 10% OFF my favourite hair product at the moment using my CODE: 'EZZA10'

I used to oil my hair twice a week, and use a hair mask once a week before I got married.. And up till about 5 months of being married I probably only applied oil to my hair twice =O
But thanks to 'Rapunz-Oil' I have been back into trying to give my hair the 'tender, love and care' it rightly deserves.

Firstly let me just start with saying how much I love the name; and how clever it is. The name within itself makes you want to try the product!! 

I recently coloured my hair, so now my hair really needs extra love. I was afraid that my hair would get damaged and go dry but thanks to Rapunz-Oil I am seriously impressed with the results. 

Rapunz-Oil is a blend of 7 natural oils infused with antioxidants, proteins, and omega 3, 6 & 9.
I use the hair treatment oil (overnight) and my hair is left so shiny after washing and drying it. 
Whilst my hair is damp I apply the leave in oil to my ends of the hair and apply a small amount to my hair everyday until I wash it again; and I feel like my hair is left extremely healthy.

The best thing about the product is that it is 'UNSCENTED' - I'm not always a fan of certain scents, especially oils as they never really smell great, but this has no scent whatsoever which makes it all that much easier and convenient to apply it.

OUTFIT | Sakeena - I Luv Designer

Hello guys!

When was the last time I did a blog post on an outfit? Can't remember? Yeah me either! 

So what bought on an outfit post today? You will soon find out yourself..


I absolutely LOVED this outfit myself. I love it so much, that I have to say it is definitely one of my favourites - I felt so glam wearing it today. 

I loved how different the cut and the style of the dress was; how the top was styled to also look like a dupatta which is why a dupatta isn't need with the outfit. I found it different to the normal typical asian outfits you normally see. The best thing about it is that it's comfy, glam and just so pretty. 

What was even better was that because of the cut and the shape of the outfit; despite having a gorgeous net material it still looks and feels so modest.

If you guys wish to purchase the outfit head over to
