I’m a ’97, Malaysian, Muslim, westernised, Rumi loving, kiwi poet and feminist, who is still a bit naive at times but have a lot of wisdom to tell you. This blog will have a bit of everything such as faith, poetry, makeup/beauty and life/relationships advice, reviews, responses to current events, travel and maybe some fashion inspo.

My starting this blog was due to an epiphany where I realised that this life is too short to be closed minded, to have not experienced life or at least tried to pursue your passions or dreams. I hope to inspire, advise or give you another perspective on things that matters or doesn’t really matter. If my posts had put a smile on your face, made you think or sets a fire to your soul, then please let me know in the comments.

And oh, my name is Nurul (which means ‘light’ in arabic) but people also call me Yantie (think of it as a nickname my grandmother gave me).

(N.B: For some reason when you click on ‘Blog’ it doesn’t show any blog posts but you can read all of my posts here: https://thegirlinthewineredscarf.wordpress.com/)
