A Different Kind Of Love

It was love at first sight

Tear of happiness
But also a hidden sadness
Wish that mum could see you now.

My love and prayers are always with you
I’ve loved you your whole life
And will continue to do so till the end of mine. Continue reading

Hello and Welcome!


Thanks for stopping by my blog πŸ™‚

As you may or may not be able to tell from my blog name, I love all things creative and my name is Latifa… Hence Creatifa! Ta-da!

My interests are makeup, cooking, baking, sewing, embroidery, and engineering. I’ve always wondered how things work and how I can recreate something I like, be it food, clothing or a makeup look.

Oh, and I also love writing! D’oh you would’ve thought that would come first! Stay tuned for more blog posts on all things creative.
