Review | Shop the Souq


Lace, its in all the shops and is being incorporated into different types of clothing. However, in my opinion too much lace looks tacky, for example lace/netted sleeves and dresses. The trick to using lace is to use a little bit and the best way of doing that as a hijabi is underscarves.

Lace underscarves give your hijab style a vintage look without the lace looking too overpowering. I have bought a grey lace underscarf from the pearl daisy website [see 1st image to the left] which looks good and is reasonably priced, however, its one of those tube underscarves and my ears begin to hurt during the day, if I wear it behind my ears it makes them stick out under the scarf which looks weird, but its ok if you know your not going to be wearing it all day.

For all of you who want to wear the lace underscarf without your ears hurting I have found the perfect solution.....Bonnet type, tie up lace underscarves =D I haven't bought any of these from the souq hijab and I'm not sure if there are many in stock so be sure to check it out. I have bought a light silver pashmina from the souq hijab website and its of great quality, the customer service is also very good alhmadulillah. The sister got in touch with me to update me about my purchase and always replied to my questions and queries.

In the second image you can see what a tie up lace underscarf looks like. I am definitely looking forward to purchasing some more items from the souq hijab website even if it is all the way in America. I would really recommend you take a look at the souq website or facebook page [links provided at the end] I have been browsing through the facebook page and have my eye on some hijabs (when I can afford it lol). Has anyone else bought anything from the souq hijab? If so what are your views on their products? If you haven't bought anything, after browsing the items what do you think of them? would you buy any? leave your comments below.

I Took My Driving Test!

Salaam all, I recently took my practical driving test and I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings of that day with you inshaAllah. On Wednesday the 18th I had my driving test. I had practiced all  I could and now the rest was down to Allah swt. I tried to keep myself calm by telling myself that whatever happens it is Allah's will and if I don't pass then maybe this time I wasn't supposed to. As I stood for Taraweeh that night my heart was pounding as I asked Allah to keep me safe on the road and also for me to pass. After praying I felt a lot calmer and soon enough fell asleep. Woke up for Suhoor, prayed Fajr and tried to go back to sleep. All I could think about was how much I wanted to pass, not because I really want to drive or anything, but just because taking lessons was taking up a lot of my time and money that I could spend on other things. As well as taking up my parents time and my uncle's. I got a couple of hours of sleep and woke up bright and

Review | Unique Hijab's

Assalaamu alaikum! Sorry for going AWOL for a while there, my netbook was down so I couldn't write blog posts and post pictures )= Alhamdulillah it's working now, a BIG JazkaAllah khair to the computer fixer upper. Anyway today I have a review for an amazing hijab company in the states! =D I received 3 scarves from them yesterday, a thin scarf, a crinkle scarf and a diamante jersey scarf, they're all super cool but first I'd like to tell you a little more about the company itself. Unique Hijabs actually started on ebay and then launched it's own website in 2009 their website is: www.uniquehijabs.com They sell a huge variety of hijabs and accessories such as under scarves, sleeves and brooches. One of the things I liked about this company is something that they've written on their facebook page, which I can actually relate to as I'm sure you can too: Food for thought and Unique Hijab Facts, to help you make your next purchasing decision wisely.

Beauty Review | FW Beauty Skincare

I finally got around to writing up this much requested post on the products I bought from FWBeauty, the reason I haven't written something sooner is because I believe it's important to be using a skincare product for a while before reviewing it, as most skincare products don't give significant results after just one or two uses. I've been following the founders of FW Beauty Fatiha and Yasmine's journey online for a while now and I love seeing how successful they are becoming. They talk about their products with so much passion and confidence that I had to meet them in person and try out their skincare products. If you've been following me on Instagram you'll know that I attended the Muslim Lifestyle Show a few weeks ago and picked up the FW Beauty skincare products that I've been dying to try ever since I saw the glowing reviews. They had everything at a reduced price and I picked up the clear complexion bar, the gold elixir brightening facial
