Review | Hijab Treasures

Salaam! Check out the Hijab Treasures SALE! This is a review of some awesome stuff I was sent from Hijab Treasures one of my favourite online stores run by an amazing sister who follows iHijabi. I will start with some really pretty kilt pins that you can use in the same way as a brooch Both the pins are very sturdy in terms of quality, they don't bend when you try to put them in your scarf and the stones/pearls are also high quality with good durability. My favourite one is the one with pearls because I think it looks really elegant and feminine. The stones in the pins are very sparkly and look expensive. Be careful when using one of these pins with delicate scarves because the pin is quite big it can leave a hole in your scarf or snag. Next up are some dangly hijab pins, one in black and the other in lilac, apologies I just realised I don't have a close up of the lilac one. Again very high quality pins which come in their own little display boxes (

Review | Bella scarves

  I was sent a lovely Silk effect lace scarf from Bella Scarves recently and have been meaning to review it ever since, finally I got my lil sis to model the scarf for me. Bella scarves is an online company who are stockists of beautiful NEVA style scarves and other scarves. All of their scarves are elegant and feminin and majority of them look best when worn in the Turkish style as shown in a preview picture I put up on my facebook page. The price of the hijab is quite high compared to other online stores I have previously reviewed but the quality of the hijab and the luxury brand name is probably the reason for the high price. The hijab came in amazing condition via post in a purple plastic packet and was wrapped in purple tissue paper with a little flower cutout, which when I saw it I thought would make a great gift. I loved everything about it, especially the fact that it looked so elegant. I do have some difficulty wrapping it because I'm not

Confessions | Troublesome Twins and a Bossy Big Cousin

Dedicated to the twins- May Allah bless you both with the best in this life and the next =) Yesterday my two little (now not so little) twin cousins turned 20 mashaAllah so I thought it was about time I shared a little confession about an event that took place in our childhood....yes, Tahrema you know whats coming... I was a little rebel when I was younger and quite bossy too (all my siblings & cousins will say that I still am but don't listen to them) My cousins and I pretty much grew up together like sisters, we lived with our extended family in the same house, we went to the same school and same Islamic school. Once after we had moved into our own separate houses we were about 6 or 7 and me and my mum were at my cousins house. My aunt has this chicken shaped egg holder and for some dumb reason I decided it would be fun to try and juggle with the eggs inside it. So we did and I dropped an egg and it cracked on the floor. The twins mum (my aunt) came into the kitche

New Years...looking back at 2012

We're like almost a week into 2013 and I'm sitting here reminiscing 2012 =\ 2012 was actually a really good year for me, I wrote a post a while back saying that I was quite anxious about all the changes that were to take place that year, alhamdulillah everything went well (with a lot of hard work, struggle and faith mind you). Right now I'm feeling so grateful about everything in my life so far. So what were my highlights of last year? Among them would be going for Umrah in April, going on holiday to Italy in the summer, one of the best Ramadhan's to date, finishing Uni, getting a job and everything in between alhamdulillah alhamdulillah alhamdulillah! So 2013 and I feel like I've done a lot of growing up, learnt so much about life, about people, about the things are and how to deal with them. It's not always good, most of the things I have learnt the hard way, but everything happens for the best and the fact that I'm still alive means it
