My Everyday Winter Wear


Assalaamu alaikum sisters (=


So it's been snowing in London last couple of weeks and is absolutely FREEEZING!! SubhanAllah it's so cold, the other day our heating stopped working and I was literally shivering in my bed, made me remember all the homeless people and the people who live without heating because they can't afford it, I can't imagine the suffering they're going through. Our heating came back in the morning but my room just gets so cold for some reason, so as I write this my ears are feeling cold (yhp just my ears lol)

I had an exam on Friday which was ok alhamdulillah but inshaAllah I'll see how it really went when results come out, it snowed the night before and I was dreading getting there in the morning, so I got up, prayed fajr, got ready and left straight after to make it there on time. In my area there was a lot of snow and it was really cold so I wrapped up like an eskimo with my big wooley hooded scarf, my mittens and oversized hood coat (with loads of layers underneath) then I got to wear my uni was, got off the bus and the sun was shining, the roads and pavements were clear and I felt so overdressed (by overdressed I mean too wrapped up).


I've got literally 3 months to go before exams and assignments are officially over! Can't wait! but before then I have tonnes of work to do, please please please make du'a for me =( I'm really dreading it all. Going back to placement from Monday, which I'm not really looking forward to 9am-5pm on my feet running around, come home exhausted, work on dissertation then sleep and repeat -__- sucks the life outta you, really does.

Although it's really cold I like winter because I can layer up, it's a perfect time for a hijabi because you can never feel too hot, well not in this weather anyway, I love coats and gloves and scarves =D I did have to wear two pairs of socks though my feet get really cold. Below are pictures of what I wore (outer clothes) on Friday, it did actually keep me really warm alhamdulillah.

Coat: ASOS Marketplace
Wooley hooded scarf with pockets: Accessorize
Gloves/mittens: Either accessorize or the market can't remember, but they're super for texting because they're fingerless when you need them to be, otherwise you just cover your fingers with the flap (=






Not the same ones I have

Anyway ladies, wrap up warm and enjoy the winter iA =) do remember the homeless and less fortunate in your du'as.

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.
