Review | Acacia Label

Assalaamu alaikum guys!!!!

Long time no see no blog. I got a new DSLR camera yaaaay! and a new dress double yaay!

So yeah I ordered a custom made dress from Acacia Label, I was really wary about buying custom made dresses because I've had bad experiences in the past, where the quality hasn't been what I expected & the measurements were really off, but Acacia is a well established label and has been reviewed by many well known bloggers/vloggers so I thought let me give it a go....and of course because how could I not fall in love with their designs?

I wanted something a little different to what they already had on the website, so I e-mailed the team and told them what I was thinking, alhamdulillah the Acacia team got back to me pretty quickly with some more ideas and pictures of samples of fabrics and colours, I chose the colours, worked with them on the design a  bit more then paid for the dress through a secure payment system online.

I was then contacted by them regarding my measurements, now if you're anything like me and not so great with measuring yourself, their instructions were very clear and foolproof, they asked for my UK dress size and compared the average sizes to what I sent them, after checking all the measurements they e-mailed me again so I could double check some of the measurements that didn't seem correct to them. All in all it was amazing customer service and they helped me every step of the way.

I was then contacted a couple weeks later to tell me that the dress was finished as was being sent out.

I got a dress, an overgown (which I requested) and a pair of churidar trousers.

cue the gazzillion pictures I had fun taking with my new camera...

The first thing I noticed about the dress was the quality of fabric used, light charmeuse silk, fully lined with a silky soft satin, the over gown and the churidar trousers were both made from exceptional quality fabric. I then noticed the workmanship and attention to detail, there was an almost invisible zip on the side of the dress and buttons on the sleeves of both the dress and over gown to make it easy to put on and take off. The only problem I had with it was it was a little too snug around the waist and hips, but that is mainly my fault (actually my flabby belly's fault) because I should have given a slightly bigger measurement and I think I've put on more weight on my tummy =\

But again overall I was over the moon with the quality of the entire outfit.

I would recommend this company in a heartbeat because I was really happy with everything, from beginning to end.

The company is based in Australia and it took roughly 2 months from the day I first e-mailed them to the day I received it, that was after a lot of e-mails back and forth. But their dresses take 21 days to be made and a further 4-5 days to be delivered, which I think is pretty reasonable for a custom made dress tailored to your size.

Happy shopping y'all

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
