Charity Week - An Elegant Masquerade



On the 2nd of November 'City University London' held its charity dinner as part of charity week, to raise money for orphans and needy children. It was an amazing evening full of wonderful food, company and entertainment. The sisters only event was held at Maida restaurant in bethnal green. We had our own room away from the public which meant the sisters could let their hair down and enjoy themselves whilst raising money for a worthy cause.

Here are a few pictures from the evening





The dress code was elegant masquerade, a fab excuse to dress up and feel like a princess for the evening. Although I've always wanted to wear a mask I didn't the chance to go and get one, however, a few people did wear a mask and looked great.




















 For the event I wore a blue abaya made by my cousin
so thank you cousin =P
My cousin  brought one of her canvases with her and we auctioned off all three canvases for £100. All the money went to Islamic relief.


















Two of the sisters at the event sang Zain Bikha's 'Orphan child' nasheed beautifully mashaAllah I even had tears in my eyes. There was a cilla black style 'blind date' performance which made me laugh so much my jaw started hurting ...to all the sisters that took part, well done MashaAllah!


Everyone looked stunning mashaAllah and the event was a brilliant success Alhamdulillah.













I'd like to thank all the sisters who organised this event, I had the most amazing time and met some lovely people. Well done for persevering and not giving up even when the student union wasn't very helpful.

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
