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

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.

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
