Alhamdulillah, what an epically mind bending time away it has been! I’m all about the exclamation marks and if I didn’t have a few writer friends finicky about using loads of them… Oh, what the hell !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GAH!!!! I. CAN’T. EVEN!!!!

SO what’s new I hear you ask… Yes? HEAPS. HEAPS AND HEAPS. I can’t even begin to tell you how elated I am to be back! In fact, go and make a hot cup of something yum, come back, get comfy, and explore. Click on everything. Anything and everything. Galavant to your heart’s content and let me know what you think! I’d LOVE to hear from you. Also, if something isn’t working, let me know about that too please. Thanking you.

Spending the last couple of months re-making Stori Dori online was no easy feat I tell you. Let me explain why its taken so long to sort it all out… I totally bit off more than I could chew within the original timeframe I gave myself. I’m the kind of person who will be bricking it on the inside yet totally optimistic on the outside. So what ended up happening is a sudden realisation kicked in once I got going and the dread filled me up as I really didn’t take into consideration the mammoth task it would be to learn to build a new website on a different platform. Coupled with the mother of all sickness cycles this winter and a fortnightly ugly cry sesh of utter feelings of hopelessness and failure, hey presto! We’re now here, Alhamdulillah.

I can’t help it. Curating nostalgia is one of my favourite things to do and so pretty much anything related to Stori Dori has a deeper meaning than what meets the eye. That’s the feeling I had throughout this whole process and hope that you feel welcomed here, always.

We have a newly named collection…

We’re calling it SIGNATURES. They’re one of a kind. I can’t help it, the people I work and collaborate with are awesome and those firey sparks of inspiration just keep coming. They also behave like the signatures in a book which is traditionally sewn into the binding, except with a Stori Dori they’re interchangeable. Be sure to tag us so we can geek out on Stori Dori Signatures love with you too!

What’s coming up…

Well now, the Members Club will be unveiled soon In Shaa Allah. We’re working on the final stages of getting it just right for our Stori Dori Members and can’t wait to take you on a guided tour of this service. For a limited time only we will still be offering the Lifetime Membership package for the one off fee of £35 so if you’re interested then go here to check out more details.

We’ll be announcing the winners of our London, Baby competition soon so there’s still a chance to enter here.

A couple of exciting collaborations will be announced over the coming days so make sure you’re following us across social media and don’t miss the details!

I’d like to sincerely thank the wonderful sisters who have been instrumental in helping me build the next phase of Stori Dori, for their unwavering dedication and support. Rey, LaYinka, and Nafeesa – thank you so much!! And to all those who have made du’a, encouraged, and thought well of me.. Thank you, too!!

With love and great affection,
