My Story

My name is Nurgul otherwise known as Rose for those who can't really pronounce my native name. I am an Australian born Turkish Muslim woman. 

I am a wife and a mother to three beautiful girls. I have grown up and lived most of my life in Sydney and Brisbane (currently in Brisbane) but have also travelled to a few different countries such as Turkiye, Singapore, Maldives, Fiji, America, Hawaii and Canada. I have a Bachelors Degree in Business Marketing but have spent most of my years more in motherhood than in business. I would say I am more of a creative type of person, I love fashion, interior designing and event planning but at the same time I love reading and having conversations about Islam, mental health, the upbringing of and psychology in children. These areas hold a significant part in my life as a mother living in a foreign country with three different identities - Turkish, Australian and Muslim. It can be absolutely challenging and much of my inspiration for writing comes from the experiences these identities have given me as I've grown up. I would like to say I am a good mix of them all but in the perspective of others I am never Muslim enough, Turkish enough or Australian enough and that is a matter I love to elaborate on. Although these are the areas I have the most experience in, I am open to reading about all sorts of topics and reviewing books will be a big part of my blog. So if there are any books you'd love for me to read and review please send them my way. I find that my perspective is always different to many others and whilst I once used to be ashamed about this - I have come to appreciate that being different is ok and I know that others will appreciate my perspective. Not everyone has to agree with everything I write and that is ok too. I truly believe everyone is respectfully entitled to their own thoughts and opinions.

Becoming a mother, changed my entire being and perspective in life. It has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding roles I have ever had to take on. In fact motherhood came to me in life when I least expected it and everything has just been an amazingly beautiful but crazy whirlwind of a venture since then. Although I was 24 years old when I became a mother, I can confidently say that I never properly entered "adulthood" until I gave birth to my first child. It's when I really and truely understood what responsibility meant, it was a time when my love for Islam grew immensely and it's when I grew to understand a new found indescribable feeling of love that a mother has for her child. Through my early years of motherhood, I began to question a lot more about my life, who I want to be, what kind of an example I want to set to my child, who I want to surround myself with, where I want to bring up my child and so forth. Through this journey, I learnt so much about what it means to be a mother, what it means to have a whole new identity once you do become a mother, what responsibilities and challenges your new identity may come with. From the judgement of other mothers, to society telling you to be a certain way to losing yourself completely, post natal depression, being a working mum and an attentive wife. Some of these topics are so taboo and are not discussed enough - especially from a religious and cultural perspective.


I am at a point in my life now where I am confident enough to say I am for the most part content with the mother I am, the wife I am and the person I have become as a whole. This is not a feeling that I carry all the time, I still have many moments of self doubt but I am still learning and it is always going to be a learning journey as there is always going to be room for improvement. However being able to reach such stability in your life requires a lot of work and there is no shame in that. I am therefore here to share with other women in the world, my personal experience and perhaps some of you can relate to me, others can share their opinions with me, or their advice. 

Happy reading!
