Review | Islamic Design House

Assalaamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu dear sisters,

Recently I bought a jilbab from Islamic Design House (IDH) and here is the review for it. I wanted to buy something quite casual & sporty to wear with my converses =D yes I am a bit backwards I buy the accessories like hijab, shoes, bag and then buy an outfit to go with it lol. So anyway I was searching around and found this one on the IDH website.




It arrived in reaosnable time (I think, =S it's been a while now) and was packaged well, arrived in perfect condition. First thing I did was try it on, the length was perfect (I'm a weird size 55 inches) the fit was also perfect (they have different size in terms of body fit for each length option, which is SUPER!) only problem and big problem was the sleeves, they were too wide )= but that was fixed with a sewing machine (and I'm not great at sewing, but it wasn't that hard) it did take some trial and error to get the sleeves to fit (I didn't measure it or anything, so if you've got patience then it's really)

[Sorry about the pictures I had to stand on a bed =S]






What I love about it:

-I love the sporty look (I don't have a particular style I stick to, I like to try out all different style's in terms of outfits but this is my first sporty one)

-It looks good with my converses =D

-It fits well and is the right length

-The kimono (chinese/japanese dresses) style touch to it

-And my FaV thing...the sleeves, it's realy unique and gives a super urban chic feel to it.

What I don't like about it:

-I had to adjust the sleeves

-The fabric is like a poly cotton material which causes a lot of friction with my jeans or trousers which I wear underneath it, it's also quite stiff as in it doesn't really flow and makes a ruffling sound when you walk.

-It gets creased really easily so I have to iron it every time I want to wear it.

Overall:

It's a nice jilbab and I do like wearing it, it's not the most comfortable to walk in but is comfortable to wear. Is it worth the price, I actually don't think it is.....maybe it's the rise is prices of everything these days, but I do feel IDH is quite expensive, not as expensive as Aab uk or Shukr but not far off.

Alhamdulillah that's the review done (I've been meaning to do this for about 2 or 3 months now lol)

Hope you are all in the best of health & imaan...

Ma'salaama!

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

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

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: www.uniquehijabs.com 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.
