Hijab Styling | City Girl

Maj & Is'haq =)
So for this style I used a plain pashmina and a black lace hijab. I guess you can do this with any hijab but you want them to be contrasting. Also whatever you substitute the lace hijab for make sure it's a thin scarf.

By this stage my sister got really bored of me messing with her head (quite literally) so she decided to do this one sitting down...on my very messy bed

So I've gtta apologise for my messy room =S I had just finished painting and both my little bothers were on my laptop watching 'In the night garden'

Step 1 

Fold the pashmina 2/3 from the front, place them both on your head, long side, short side you know the drill.

Step 2

Leave the pashmina hanging but take the lace hijab behind your head and bring the long side to the short side

Step 3

Cross over the long & short side then wrap the long side around your bun and bring it back to the side again

Step 4

Tie both the long side and the short side in a knot at the side

Step 5

Get the long side of the pashmina and bring it round your head

Step 6

At this stage you can just leave it hanging like this, just use a straight pin to keep it in place

Step 7

Or you could bring the long side of the Pashmina under the lace hijab which is hanging down

Step 8

And pin it on your shoulder on the other side (from the inside) or use a brooch.

Finished look:


The other side


Thanks for watching and reading, I hope you liked it took me absolutely forever but it was worth it. Leave feedback on what you think iA

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: 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
