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.





I bought this black jilbab from there because I really wanted something I could wear over my party outfit if I was going to someones house for dinner or even for special occasions so that I could wear it to the venue over my clothes. Ever since I got it I can't stop wearing it, it has come in so handy and I always think that if I'm actually wearing it then it was worth the money.

The jilbab buttons up at the front and has bead work motifs on the sleeves, top of the hood and at the back, it comes with pockets and a belt which can be tied at the back to adjust the size and fitting. The hood is attached with buttons so you can take it off if you're not going to wear it, this one also has some subtle silver piping at the back, at the wrists and along the rim of the hood, which jazzes it up a bit.

This is a great outfit to dress up or dress down an outfit, it actually makes a plain coloured jilbab worn underneath look ready for an evening out or dinner with friends. The fabric is like normal Saudi abaya material and very high quality, it's wide and flowey without looking like you're drowning in it.

So all in all I'm glad I bought this jilbab, they always have amazing new stock and it's definitely worth going to during their sales.

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

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

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
