♥ About Me?


As-salamu-alaykum (Peace by upon you)

First let me introduce myself…

I'm Saadia Mirza and among other things I'm an aspiring journalist. I'm Indian by origin and have been born and brought up in Saudi Arabia. I currently reside in Jeddah.


What do I believe in?

I believe in beauty.

I passionately believe everyone can be beautiful. Some might find this superficial but it’s really not. Being beautiful is about taking care of your mind, body and soul. It’s not your face or body it’s your heart that reflects beauty. Absolute real beauty starts from within. Through this blog I share with you some beauty rituals to keep our hearts, minds, bodies and souls beautiful.

I also believe,

In God
In faith
In humanity
In empathy
In love
In compassion & kindness

What can I tell you?
I’m a believer.



Who is Saadia?

Describing yourself is always awkward but let me give it a try as I want you all to know me just a little bit better.

I’m 22 years old and wife to a wonderful man. Currently, I’m studying and working towards becoming a journalist, businesswoman, human activist and an amazing mother In’sha’Allah (god willing).


I’m a very warm, down-to-earth, deeply family-oriented, a little shy, and liberal but optimistic person.

I don’t know if this is something odd but I’m a poor person at heart and I find it easier to fit in and connect with poor people. They're so warm and real. No bullshit involved.

I’m also very empathetic, if someone cries there is a big chance I would sit and tear up with them. Or my throat would get clogged with restrained tears and I wouldn't be able to speak or console that person. But, even then I’m the type of person that people come to with emotional problems.

I’m a dependable and mature person (or at least I think I’m) but I do have a crazy wild side. I need some growing up to do. But, yeah I’ll get there someday.





Why Girl from Arabia?

I’m a very passionate person. I feel really passionate about things. I needed to share my passion with people who share the same or could benefit from reading about it.

 I've started this blog to help girls find their beauty and faith.

This blog is my baby. It is my friend on those long quiet nights.

Girl from Arabia is about everything in my life as a girl living in Saudi Arabia. My struggles, hopes, dreams, aspirations…

This is my journey and I invite you to join me, for who knows you might find some beauty, love or even motivation.

I wish I could limit myself to just one topic or subject in my blog. But, I can’t because I’m a learner, an explorer. I cannot limit myself to just one thing.

Now, I do hope you know me a little better. If you share similar thoughts and want to be friends send me a message on my Facebook or email me.


Happy reading!

  8. Seems like ur ashamed of ur hometown which I believe is Hyderabad. Despite u mentioning ur home country several times earlier ppl still asked whr u belong but u nevr really bothered.
    Well, May be u want yourself to be associated more with 'Arabia' rather than a hyderabadi yeah!!

    1. Okay. Umm, I was born here and lived here in 'Arabia' all my life, hardly ever been to Hyderabad. I mentioned my hometown which is Riyadh. Home is where the heart is right? My heart and home is Saudi Arabia. And, I'm not ashamed of anything.

  9. OMG! I love you girl! Keep doing your thing. I actually relate at your 'I’m a poor person at heart' because I came from a poor family and we live in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Others think living in here means you're rich and you're enjoying life. On a side note, I hope to meet you someday! I always love to meet my favorite bloggers.. yes. I save the websites of my favorite bloggers as bookmarks. And in shaa Allah, I'll be able to make my own website too. I want to follow you on Twitter or Instagram but i can't find any link in your blog. Have a good day ahead - Naf

  12. Hi Saadia,
    I love your blog! :) I am also 22 and married, from Australia. I am not religious but your insights into Islam and Islamic marriage are really interesting and the values really aren't that different than what I hold.
    Also, you inspired me to try the oil cleansing method, it's my second night and I cannot wait to see what differences it makes.
    A while ago I stopped using any shampoo and conditioner on my hair and used water only to wash (rinse only method), I did that for 2 months before realising it wasn't completely going to work for me. I now shampoo and condition every 1-1.5 weeks and use the rinse only method in between those times. I am very much for natural and home made beauty and am looking forward to trying some of your tips.
    Thank you :) xx Laura

    P.S. I have followed you on instagram. If you are interested in sharing, my intsa name is 'meltingmomentz_'
