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

Review | Unique Hijab's

Assalaamu alaikum! Sorry for going AWOL for a while there, my netbook was down so I couldn't write blog posts and post pictures )= Alhamdulillah it's working now, a BIG JazkaAllah khair to the computer fixer upper. Anyway today I have a review for an amazing hijab company in the states! =D I received 3 scarves from them yesterday, a thin scarf, a crinkle scarf and a diamante jersey scarf, they're all super cool but first I'd like to tell you a little more about the company itself. Unique Hijabs actually started on ebay and then launched it's own website in 2009 their website is: www.uniquehijabs.com They sell a huge variety of hijabs and accessories such as under scarves, sleeves and brooches. One of the things I liked about this company is something that they've written on their facebook page, which I can actually relate to as I'm sure you can too: Food for thought and Unique Hijab Facts, to help you make your next purchasing decision wisely.

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
