Review | 'Oooh my'

Salaam salaam!

I haven't posted anything in a really long time and almost felt like giving up blogging altogether. After the wedding life took over and it's really difficult trying to balance everything. Anyway I haven't given up and here is a quick review for two kimono dresses from a company called 'Oooh My', which I came across on instagram. Today I will be sharing my views on the dresses and the company.

 
I actually don't have pictures of me wearing the dresses so I have shared with you the sample pictures from their website.



I bought these two kimono dresses from the website. I actually found a hard time choosing the colours because there are so many to choose from, but I felt these two were something I could wear in this summer transitioning to autumn weather.

The website is fairly easy to use and I found the pictures of the items really helpful. It's always a good idea to have a model wear the products so that people can visualise what the item looks like when worn. The prices of the items I felt were a little high for what they are, but having said that they are in keeping with other independent companies selling a similar range of products on instagram.

The items arrived pretty promptly (within a week). First thing I realised is that although it's fully lined (which I love!) the sleeves are see through )= so I had to wear a black top underneath. For this weather where it's cold in the mornings and night, but pretty sunny and warm in the afternoon wearing a top and leggings underneath is ok, but for summer wearing a long sleeve top can get a bit too hot.

I am 5ft3 and this dress is slightly too short for me, I would have preferred it to be slightly longer but it's still ok. This dress will be a bit too short for anyone taller than me. So be careful to check all sizing for different products before purchase.

I got a discount code from their instagram which I applied to the basket before paying so check their facebook page and instagram to see if you can get a discount.

Overall I really like the two dresses I bought, although I think they're a bit on the expensive side for what they are, with the discount I think it's a good purchase. I'm pretty sure I will be making more purchases from them in the future inshaAllah, especially for next summer seeing as it's really difficult to find hijab friendly dresses on the high street.

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

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
