Update: Smoky not smudgy, Eid & OOTD

Assalaamu alaikum sisters!

I haven't posted anything for a while, mainly because uni work is just piling up )= I feel like I have too much to do and too little time and then I realise I spend most of my time thinking this instead of actually doing work! What do you guys suggest I do to get myself to do some work? I mean I come home from placement which is pretty much a 9-5 job, eat, watch telly, then feel too tired to do anything. I've also been feeling really drained lately, I think it could be because of the change of weather, always making me feel real gloomy and run-down and  I don't know how to snap out of it. I feel tired like all I want to do is sleep, I'm getting grey hairs too...at 20? Seriously think there may be something wrong with me, maybe I need to go see the doc's.

So I write this post with my eyes half open (-_-)

Anyhow....! I went to the smoky not smudgy event last Saturday (the Saturday before Eid) and for those of you who don't know what the events all about it's basically a women's only pamper day held by Imperial College Uni for Charity week, every year they have stalls held by business women who sell all things a woman could want (make-up, clothes, jewellery, hijabs, accessories, CAKE!) as well as make-up artists, hair stylists, photographers, henna artists, masseuse who all provide their services on the day all in the name of charity mA (=

This year I teamed up with my friend Hana from 'Ornate' and we held a stall doing henna and selling some hijabs & accessories, which looking back on it was actually not a very good idea because it took a lot of effort to make the hijabs and then turned out probably 80% of the stalls there were hijab & accessory stalls -__- It was a good event though and I met some really lovely sisters!

Big shout out to one of my readers who I met on the day (= (you know who you are!)....It was quite weird meeting you because when I write my posts I never think anyone actually reads them (except for the haters who read my posts only to leave negative comments and tell me what I'm writing is 'wrong'). I write (or type rather) as if I'm writing to an imaginary friend or in a diary lol so it was weird when people came up to me and said that they follow my blog, like really lovely down to earth and very inspiring sisters MashaAllah (they weren't even weirdo's off the net, which is a good thing lol)

On the day I wore a black jilbab, with a khaki/brownish belt, a beige colour jersey hijab (which you've seen before) and a black ruched sleeve blazer. Kept my make-up pretty simple with just some black eyeliner, mascara and nude/pinky lips. Here are some pics of my outfit of the day =)




 And that is my lil bro Is'haq, do keep him in your du'as he keeps faling ill (as you can see from his runny nose and sleepish eyes in the pic).

Hmmm so what else did I want to tell you guys....??????

Oh yeah EID MUBARAK! I know it's very late lol, I was really busy, we had my whole family come round for lunch (and dinner) it was really fun actually (stressful and hectic at times, but still fun) I love seeing all my aunts, cousins and grandma I feel like a little kid again when we used to all live together or meet up every weekend, now everyones grown up and 'busy' with life, Eid is the only time we get to see everyone together <3 my family they're best  =D

This is a pic of me n my cousin (I'm in the pink) we went for quite simple outfits this Eid ( which I personally think looked nicer, and was waaay more comfortable then looking like walking xmas decorations lol) I didn't choose my dress my mum actually bought it for me and told me that it was for Eid, very 60's retro no?


Anyway  I think that's all for now, hope you guys had an AWESOME Eid iA! Remember me n my family & the entire Ummah in your du'as....Love you all for the sake of Allah (=

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

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

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
