Review | Arabian Nites

So I bought a jilbab last month (I think) from Arabian Nites, it's a shop in East London under East London Mosque & The London Muslim Centre. It's an amazing shop and I love going in there, the jilbabs in there are totally my style, elegant and modest with a twist. Only problem is that they're really expensive, sometimes I think as nice as the jilbabs are they are not worth the price, but it's a great place to shop if you're treating yourself (or a friend/relative), for special occasions such as Eid and Weddings.

Review | Hijab Obsessions

Assalaamu alaikum all! So this is another review for one of my all time fave hijab companies ' Hijab Obsessions ' I received two of their hijabs, a jersey shimmer scarf and a two in one jersey scarf, check out the pics and the review below! So the grey and black jersey hijab is an interesting concept, it is two coloured jersey hijabs stitched together. I love hijabs that you can wear in different ways because it makes you think creatively and you can wear the same hijab and nobody would realise. Everyone that saw me wearing this hijab thought it was really cool because it looked like I was wearing 2 hijabs but it was actually just one. The fabric as always with this company was amazing and easy to wrap and drape. The second hijab was this shimmer jersey hijab, it is a white/silver scarf which has a subtle shimmer to it. This scarf is much softer and lighter than your ordinary jersey hijab and is quite sheer so I would recommend a white under scarf and wh

OOTD | Parties, Engagements, Food & Family

Salaam girls, long time no post hey? Did ya miss me? =P jk, I've been a bit busy with my thesis which is due this Monday, alhamdulillah I'm almost done just got to do referncing and then print it...soooo I thought I would upload an outfit of the day post of what I wore to a little family get together at my cousins. Also last week my aunts brother was getting engaged and in bengali engagements the grooms family sends gifts to the bride, including clothes with accessories as well as food platters and other stuff, it's a small thing (sometimes the bride & groom aren't even present) and we didn't go to the actual engagement but we just made the gifts to send, it's good fun and an excuse for all the girls to get together and get creative...with food usually lol. Anyway enjoy! OOTD Engagement party gifts  The Ferrero Roche pyramid was my creation =D was very proud of it mA lol everything else was credit to my aunties (=
