Best Posts of 2015

31 December 2015


It's almost the end of 2015. Lord how did we even get here? It feels like just yesterday I was saying goodbye to 2014, and here we are - on the verge of a new year. The best thing about new beginnings is the excitement that comes with possibility. Who knows what next year will bring?! But my favourite thing to do during the final moments of the year is to reflect on things you've achieved throughout those 12 months. Blogging has been such a huge part of this year (and my life even), and I'm so proud of how far Creative In The Arts has come. I've been blessed to meet so many wonderful like minded people, and have engaging discussions with you all on my posts.

So what's the best way of wishing 2015 goodbye? Looking back on the most outstanding posts that I am proud to have written this year for all of you wonderful readers. So weather you've just stumbled across my blog by chance to today, or seen it grow over the past couple of years - thank you. You've made this all the more worthwhile.

Without further anticipation, here are my favourite posts from 2015. Enjoy and Happy New Year!

2015: A Year in Song

28 December 2015


Here we are again. I can't believe we're at the end of another year already! Time is just going way too fast I swear. To end the year in style, I decided to put together a list of songs that I fell in love with this year to kick off the annual favourites of the year list. So without further ado, let's get started!


Merry Christmas: The Best Time of Year

25 December 2015



Christmas is my favourite time of year, because it's a beautiful moment where family and friends come together and just be. In our busy lives - dominated by work, school and social media - when do we just sit down and have a conversation with each other? When do we show our appreciation for each other by putting thought into our words to each other, other than our own birthday's?

This time of year is also a wonderful reason to remember how blessed we are. We are lucky that we have a roof over our heads. We are lucky to live in a country that provides free health and how much opporunity currently exists. It's so easy to see the negiative things around us, especially with the events that have happened over the past couple of months. It's wonderful excuse to remember the beauty of the world, and celebrate it on this blessed holiday.

So to all of you, Merry Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful day, filled with joy, laughter and most importantly pudding!

Finding Carter: Dating the Older Guy

20 December 2015


Teen TV Dramas love their forbidden romances, don't they? There's something quite romantic about the idea of two young lovers, fighting against all odds for their love. Nothing can keep them apart. And what's more forbidden than a minor falling in love with an adult?


On this season of Finding Carter, Carter finds herself working illegally in a local bar at the tender age of 17. She immediately finds herself drawn towards Jared, her boss and bartender. Despite finding out the truth about her age, Jared keeps Carter on as a fellow employee and continues their ongoing relationship. If that doesn't set off warning bells from the start, I don't know what does. As we know now, this relationship isn't as fun-loving and carefree as initial thought. Carter may have fallen hard, but Jared is bad news wrapped up in pretty shiny warping paper, waiting to explode.

I'm a Muslim and I'm Tired Of Terrorism

3 December 2015



I am a Muslim and I am tired. I'm tired of mourning for innocent lives lost in this unnecessary bloodshed, claiming to be in the name of religion. But tell me what greater sin is there in Islam then to take a life of another? If we are not even allowed to harm an ant or a spider in our own homes, how can you even think of harming another human being? How is this act of sin acceptable? The Quran clearly states, 'I made you different from one another so you can learn from each other'. Tell me, by killing humanity, how exactly are you going to follow through with that notion? What did these innocent people, living their everyday lives do, to deserve meeting their deaths? This grief we carry should not be a regular occurrence and yet it is. My ears are numb and my heart is heavy. All because of this plague of terrorism.
