Review | Jersey Scarves Comparison

Assalaamu alaikum girls! I posted an update on the Facebook page saying that I have accumulated over 20-30 jersey scarves and that I'm a little bit obsessed with them. I will, inshaAllah, be doing a haul video/post when I get all of my jersey scarves together but today I just wanted to give a little overview on jersey scarves and the companies I have bought/received them from. The 2 top companies I have got jersey scarves from are Hijab Obsessions and Hijab Fashion Shop...other places I have got jersey scarves from are The Pinned veil, Noble Starz hijabs, Rabia Z, Inayah and Primark.

Career woman | Job interviews and the working Muslimah

Assalaamu alaikum sisters! Today I'm doing a post on everything to do with applying for jobs, going for interviews, the dressing process as as well as a few other things. If this goes down well I might do more posts like this to do with problems you might face in the world of work and how to overcome them, I was going to include it here but the post is already becoming really long. Note: If you're a woman with a rich husband who doesn't need to work and or a man who thinks women shouldn't work then good on you but please keep those comments to yourself, jzk. My story (in a nutshe ll) I was a student at the hospital I'm currently employed in, at the end of our 3 year course they said there might be one or two vacancies for the role of a radiographer and gave the 5 students in our year that trained there, the opportunity to apply and go through the whole process, before giving two of us the job. I was nervous but I thought 'what have I got to lose
