Review | Aquaini - Burkini/Modest swimwear

Salaam sisters!

I was sent a burkini from the company Aquaini to review and tell you guys all about.






When I first received the burkini I was pleasantly surprised with how it actually looked and felt like a swimming costume. The burkini itself is made from swimming costume material which means it performs when it comes into contact with water.

The burkini comes as a 2 part, a tunic top with an integrated hijab/hood and trousers. The tunic top comes with a strap and the trousers come with buttons on the side. This is to make sure the top doesn't ride up and expose you when blown by the wind or in water.

The hijab/hood is attached to the tunic top but I would have preferred to be able to detach it so that I had the option to wear it or not.

When I wore this burkini on holiday to Turkey it was great because I I didn't look too out of place in it. The hood/hijab looked a bit funny especially with my hair in a bun, I didn't like the way that looked so I wore a hijab on top, you could easily tie your hijab into a turban style so it looks better but your neck will still be covered. The hood hijab was too loose for my liking and I found that it tended to slip off and my hair came out the sides.

I understand that the trousers were wide for modesty purposes but it's not very practical to swim in. Due to the legs being wide when the waves came the trouser leg went up and exposed my legs. They also flapped around when I tried to swim in it. An alternative would be to have an option for legging like trousers that don't ride up.

The material is very good quality as it dries quickly in the sun, is durable and will last you many years.

I hope you found this review helpful inshaAllah. Let me know what you think of modest swimwear as well inshaAllah.

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.
