About Me

Britpakgirl Sharmeen ZiauddinThanks for stopping by 🙂

My name is Sharmeen Ziauddin and I am a writer/journalist/blogger. I’m British, born and bred, I love sandwiches and complaining about the weather.  I also love being a Muslim and combining the two is the most awesome thing.

This is a place where I blog about halal living. This means that I will blog about some of the following:

  • Restaurants:I’m a big foodie so restaurants will be featured…A LOT. Where the restaurant serves halal meat I will specify at the bottom of the post. I observe a halal diet which means that everything I eat will be either vegetarian, seafood, alcohol-free or halal verified. I may even throw in an odd recipe here and there!
  • Travel: Hotels, airlines, activities – anything related to travel that I think is ‘Muslim-friendly’.
  • Halal fun: As a mother of three children (aged 11, 9 and 5) we are always on the look out for different experiences and fun things for us to do as a family. Sometimes I even get to do fun things without the kids!
  • Health & beauty: I review cosmetics, skincare and hair products that appeal to me. Halal beauty is a growing industry and I will be trying to review a lot more of these kind of products.
