Review | Hijab Obsessions- Maxi Hijab

Assalaamu alaikum (=

Today I have a review for a fantastic new hijab store called hijab obsessions. They specialise in maxi hijabs which are great for creating volume without losing out on any coverage, how cool is that? I'm really into the scruffy hijab look this season, with messy folds and crinkles! Stay tuned for some pictures modelled by my sister of these amazing summer maxi hijabs from Hijab Obsessions (=

Hijab obsessions customer service is second to none, I have got to say they are amazing and notifying you about your package as well as quick to answer e-mails. The hijabs came in their seperate plastic packets wrapped very carfully in tissue paper with a ribbon with no extra cost to you (awww how cute is that?!) I love those little finishing touches makes the hijabs seem that much more precious and shows that the people who sent them have really thought of everything. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of it un-opened (my family are very annoying and nosy when it comes to packages & letters and always open my post lol, so by the time I saw it it was half opened)

Now on to the hijabs.......

Thin Maxi Hijab- Zaynah (red)

I actually didn't like this hijab when I first opened it as I don't wear red much and it's made of cotton, buuuut when I put it on my sister and styled it properly I think it looks quite good. It's really big as you'd expect from a maxi hijab and is light but not see through so you can create loads of folds without it coming out too bulky. The floral patterns are not your usual type and there are loads of different colours (blues, pinks, greens) so you can add a variety of accessories. Because the fabric is cotton it stays in place well without the need for lots of pins, in the hijab style above I've only used 1 pin to keep it in place.

Crinkle Maxi Hijab- Animal Instinct (Light brown)

So you know I said in previous crinkle hijab reviews that the hijab is a little on the short side due to the crinkles? Well the answer to that problem is a MAXI crinkle hijab! I love this hijab. Animal prints are really growing on me now due to hijabs like this, it's subtle, stylish and the two tone of the hijab lets you create many different looks. The hijab creates so much volume effortlessly. This hijab again is light & airy without being see through so it's super for the summer and much better than standard size crinkle hijabs due to the coverage it provides.

So overall what do we think of Hijab Obsessions?........

A big thumbs up!

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.

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
