Review | LaDecence

Salaam! I recieved some products from LaDecence Hijabs & accessories recently so here is the review for all of the lovely products! Ok so what will I be reviewing today? -A black lace tie back underscarf -A black Neckerie (neck covering) -A Maxi floral black crinkle hijab -A black/grey/pink thin scarf Black Lace tie back underscarf & Maxi crinkle hijab Ok so when I first saw this hijab I was not really fond of it and still wouldn't consider it one of my best hijab's (because of the colours) but when I tried it on my sister it actually looked really nice, I chose it mainly because I wanted to go for something a little different and see if I could make it work...to be honest it didn't really need much work doing to it lol, crinkle hijabs are awesome for volume without the effort (= The Lace underscarf is something I've been looking for, for a really long time, I have a grey tube lace underscarf from Peral daisy which is really tight on m

Beauty Review | Beauty B Cosmetics

Assalaamu alaikum girlies! I'm so sorry for being AWOL lately but I've got soooo much on my plate...anyhoo this is a review for an eyeshadow palette I bought recently from a company called Beauty B cosmetics, here is a link to where you can purchase their products www.BeautyBCosmetics.com www.Amazon.co.uk http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Beauty-B-Cosmetics I bought the 120 rainbow professional eyeshadow palette because I had to go to my cousins wedding and needed some bright colours to go with my outfits, this palette actually has every shade in every colour which is brilliant!

How to Hijabify a Saree

Salaam sisters! Some of you may know that my cousin got married in the weekend, for her mehndi (henna) party my sisters, cousins and I wore yellow sarees. The sarees we bought had short sleeves and my aunt made some long sleeves for us by cutting the inside of the saree and using that fabric. A sister on the iHijabi page on facebook asked me to show a before and after picture of the sarees so here are a few pics (= The first picture is from the catalogue.... And here are a few pics of us wearing the sarees What do you think? The theme was Arabian/Moroccan hence the bright colours (= Here are a few pics of some taals (decorative food platters) that people made, made by super talented aunts, cousins, sister's in law (= Made By Red (=    Cool huh? Whatcha think?

OOTD | Eid Special

Assalaamu alaikum, Hope you all had a fantabulous Eid. Today I've decided just for Eid not to only do an outfit of the day for my self but also included a few pics of my sisters and my cousins.... That's me, I wore a plum colour jilbab with copper, brown & silver decorations on the sleeves and up one side of the jilbab....it's from an online store called Al-Hijaab and is an amazing jilbab, very comfy to wear. The bag, you've seen before and it's from Clair's, the ring I'm not sure where it's from but I'm guessing an Asian shop because it's one of those you can adjust to fit. That's my little sister, she wore an anarkali dress, with my purple jersey hijab from Hijab Obsessions (= On the left is another one of my sisters and she also wore a plum colour jilbab from Al-hijaab, her embroidery is silver and it goes across diagonally to the waist. In the blue is my cousin she wore a long anarkali type dress, which
