OOTD | Maleka Abayaz

Salaam salaam!

I have so many blog posts I have been meaning to publish but it's a little difficult finding time to take pictures for them and actually sit down and type. Yesterday I went to an evening wedding and found it was the perfect opportunity to wear one of the dress I have recently had made. There are a series of posts coming up introducing you to some amazing talented ladies each who have started their own tailoring/dressmaking/Muslimah clothing company. First of these is Maleka Abayaz.

I first came across Maleka Abayaz at an Islamic fashion event for charity and after seeing her designs on the catwalk I couldn't stop raving about her. Since then I have had the opportunity to wear not one but 2 of her beautiful creations. (Images of the first one can be found on my Instagram page (ihijabi_blog) as well as Maleka Abayaz Instagram page).

Anyway here is how I wore the Opulent pleated velvet dress in Royal blue.


The dress is absolutely stunning mashaAllah and I feel like a proper princess in it. Comfy, high quality, perfect fit, what more can I say?

I totally recommend Maleka Abayaz to everyone, she's an amazing designer mashaAllah.

The shade of blue is extremely regal and I had a lot of fun doing my make-up to match the colours.

Make-up products used:

Collection 2000 concealer
MAC 'Studio fix fluid' foundation in NC40
Urban Decay 'Primer potion' eyeshadow primer
AOM contour and highlight sticks
MAC 'Plum Foolery' blusher
MUA bronzer
Urban Decay 'Naked 3' palette
Beauty B 120 palette
Rimmel London liquid eyeliner
Urban Decay '24/7 glide on' eye pencil
Maybelline 'False lash effect' mascara
MAC 'half red' lip liner
MAC 'Spirit' lipstick
The Body Shop 'all in one face base' compact powder

I finished off with a sparkly pair of heels which I like to call my 'Cinderella' shoes =D they don't quite go with all the gold in my outfit but I just needed an excuse to finally wear them, they were also just the right height to keep my dress off the ground yet still floor length. 



I seriously have not one bad word to say about Nadia Safeer (owner of Maleka Abayaz), she's an extremely talented lady who prides herself on good quality and great customer service. Will definitely be buying more things from this lovely lady!

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

10 tips for your online hijab company

Assalaamu alaikum all! I have been having idea's about this post for a while but just didn't how to get my thoughts together so I'm not sure if this will be any good but here it goes anyway! So I don't run an online business of my own, I don't have a marketing degree nor am I an expert in running businesses but I've done my fair share of online shopping and have done reviews for online companies so I will give some tips from a consumer point of view inshaAllah, but please remember these are merely my views and not guaranteed to work Tip 1: Be Unique Do your research and check out other companies out there.

If you want to be successful think up something different or take a unique angle on the hijab business idea. Brainstorm, pilot your ideas, find out what really

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
