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

Hijab Style's To Suit Your Face Shape

So you're trying to follow a hijab tutorial but your hijab just doesn't look like the person doing the tutorial, you get frustrated because you can't get it right. Well to be honest I don't think it's so much you getting it wrong, it may just be that the hijab style being demonstrated looks better on the person doing the tutorial due to the shape of that person's face. Just like when you need to get a haircut, when styling your hijab, you have to consider the shape of your face. I've had many people tell me that hijab doesn't 'suit' them because their face is too round, or their cheeks are too chubby, which is the reason why they don't wear hijab, in my opinion hijab suits everyone, you just have to figure out how to wear it to suit you. Contrary to what many think, hijab wasn't prescribed to make you look 'ugly' it is to make you look modest. In this post I have tried to look at some face shapes and find some hijab style i

So I don't run an online business of my own, I don't have a marketing degree nor am I an expert in running businesses but I've done my fair share of online shopping and have done reviews for online companies so I will give some tips from a consumer point of view inshaAllah, but please remember these are merely my views and not guaranteed to work Tip 1: Be Unique Do your research and check out other companies out there.
