Review | Lazy Sunday review crinkle hijab & urban decay Naked 1

Salaam all!

Well today hasn't been a 'lazy day' due to me running around trying to sort out assignments and revision!!! However I have done a Lazy Sunday post even with all the chaos. P.s. apologies for being in my Pj's in the following pic's 

Bargain Buy




Flourish Crinkle Scarf-Pink
Price: £5.99
From: Hijab Fashion Shop - Same colour currently out of stock

Grey John Richard Mood Swirl
Price: £2.40
From: Debenhams- Same one currently out of stock

I absolutely fell in love with this scarf as soon as I saw it on the Hijab Fashion shop website but it was out of stock and I waited for it to be re-stocked so I could grab myself one. The hijab is a beautiful light and airy crinkle scarf with Pink and Grey flowers on it. It looks delicate and feminine and is super for the summer! However a few downsides are I would have preferred it to be a bit bigger in terms of width and length as it doesn't provide the best coverage (also because it crinkles) the hijab is a lot lighter and thinner than the leopard print one I got from Al-Nisa, which means unfortunately it's not as opaque (you may be able to see your hair through it if you don't wear an underscarf and you will need to pull the short side round and pin it to your underscarf as you may be able to see your skin through it. All in all it's a very aesthetically pleasing scarf and would have been perfect if it was a bit wider and a bit longer.

The Swirl flower brooch is actually a brooch and a hair clip (has a brooch pin & crocodile clip at the back) so you can wear it either way. It's made of lace and chiffon and is the perfect accessory to a plain outfit.

Urban Decay Naked Palette
Price: £28.80
From: Debenhams

This palette is a brilliant neutral palette it has various neutral colours in different finishes from matte to shimmer to glitter (glitter does have a bit of fall out). I was looking for reviews for this palette online before I bought it and I realised that this palette was actually very popular (people were going crazy for it when it first came out) It's actually selling on ebay for £45 (that's how mad people are about it) 

Anyway I wanted to try out Urban Decay because it's supposed to be a really good brand (like MAC) and after asking a few sisters which one out of the naked palette and the book of shadows NY III I chose this one because I will use neutral colours more. I don't really wear eyeshadow unless it's for parties because I don't like wearing bright colours that attract attention even if I'm going out with family or friends. This palette is great because you can create really neutral subtle looks that are ok to wear out as they won't attract attention (unless you wear the glitter ones =S ) however, if you're going to a family party or out to dinner you could always glam it up a bit more by using one of the darker colours like 'Creep' to create a really smokey eye look.

The pictures here are not great because my camera wasn't focusing properly and the lighting wasn't very good either so it kind of looks like I've not put anything on, but in person you can see it better [for this reason and the fact that I just really don't have time I haven't done a tutorial I might do one later on after the uni stress is over iA].

In the pictures I have used the lighter colours [Please excuse the names of the colours]---'Naked all over the eye, Virgin in the inner corners and as a highlighter for the brow bone, Half baked to add some shimmer to the lid & Hustle for the outer V and crease'----
The older ones used to come with mini 24/7 glide on eye pencils but these ones come with a brush instead. The palette also comes with a primer potion.

I'd recommend this palette for anyone who likes neutral colours and for people who want to wear eye shadow especially when going out to eat or something but don't want to attract attention whilst getting there lol.

Below are some pictures I pulled off google to show the palette a lil better and some looks created by other people. Click on the Debenham link above and zoom in to see the colours close up and read more reviews. They have a 10% sale on and free delivery for a limited period only.

Anyway that's it for now. Make lots of dua for me to pass these assignments, exam, presentation etc iA.

Take care wassalaam!

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

10 tips for your online hijab company

Assalaamu alaikum all! I have been having idea's about this post for a while but just didn't how to get my thoughts together so I'm not sure if this will be any good but here it goes anyway! 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. At the moment the number of 'online hijab companies' have been growing and there are sooo many companies selling the exact same scarves & accessories claiming to be unique. If you want to be successful think up something different or take a unique angle on the hijab business idea. Brainstorm, pilot your ideas, find out what really
