Gorgeous Gems + Sparkling Stones – FT. AlJoher Gems

Hey hey everyone!

I hope you are doing well and enjoying the summer sunny weather! I love the hot weather, although some days have been a little too hot for my liking, but alhamdulillah, no complains!

Recently I had a wonderful opportunity to model a beautiful custom ruby ring by AlJoher Gems and let’s just say, I didn’t want to give it back! It was quite honestly one of the prettiest rings I’ve ever seen with intricate details and it sparkled all around. It was cutting-edge, quite literally 😉

Styling Brighter Colours – FT. Ghazala Fashion

Hey hey!

I’m slowly trying to get back into the groove of regular blogposts! It’s definitely harder than I remember, to be honest. Definitely, appreciate all my fellow sisters hustling and achieving their dreams. You go girls 👏🏽

This week, we are styling some bright colours and prints. My style has totally changed since I’ve started HH. Two years ago, I definitely wore a lot of prints and bolder colours, but more recently, I’m drawn more to the neutral hues, because they are so easy to style and versatile. However, I want to prove that brighter colours aren’t a challenge, but they can literally bring your outfit to life.

I have two outfits to demonstrate this. The first is a neutral outfit with a trendy POP of colour. Brighter colours are definitely “in” right now. The second is a mixed print outfit that even I was nervous about at first, but I was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out!

How I always create *NEW* outfits – My Favourite Outfit Equation!

Hey hey hey!

I hope you’re doing well! It’s been a while since I last wrote a fashion related post just for kicks. Seriously, it’s been ages since I’ve been on here to really share what I’M truly passionate about, other than the Zanzibar post of course! I’ve been feeling a little lost with what I want to really achieve with this space and I’m starting to recover what this blog is all about. With that being said, look forward to some new content coming your way inshallah! And as always, you can catch me on YouTube  (I actually have some lookbooks up there!!!) and on Instagram (I post on the daily, you already know) *shameless self promo* hehe.

ALRIGHT, class in session. The NUMBER 1 QUESTION I get asked, and I am not exaggerating in the slightest is: How do I always have new outfits or How do I always create new outfit combinations? People think I have 896,042,135,785 articles of clothing that I sift through to come up with outfits for events and shoots. Now, as much as I wish that was true, or slightly true, it is most definitely not! I don’t go shopping 24/7. I’ve actually barely gone shopping this year, after my primark excursion in May because, well, PRIMARK. It’s actually come to a point where my Mom is *pleading* with me to buy new clothes! I know, who would have thought that day would come.

Maximize Your Closet – Ethnic Wear! FT. Doch

Hey hey!

Hope you’re doing well and enjoying the sunny summer weather ☀️

I always get asked how I come up with so many outfit combinations and everyone thinks I have 8706532 articles of clothing. I am not *always* shopping, as per popular belief hehe. I do have a closetful of clothing, alhamdulilah, and I am always thinking of new ways to wear the clothes I already have. I think that’s the essence of fashion. Especially as I’ve been getting this feedback recently, I thought I’d make this blogpost about how to expand your wardrobe!

When it comes to ethnic wear, it can be difficult to re-wear the same outfit in a short period of time. The eye-catching intricate glitz and glamour that accompanies ethnic wear can even be difficult to style in ways other than its original form. But, if you’re going to spend a good amount of money on such pieces, you want to wear them in more than one way!

3 in 1 Outfit FT. eShakti!

Hello lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well!

I’m back with some more outfit inspo and I have a feeling you’ll really like this one.
If you’re an OG HH fan, you might remember a past blogpost I did with an outfit from eShakti (if you want to see, I’ll conveniently link it here mhm). Well, since I loved their service, I had to get another outfit from them.

eShakti allows you to customize outfits to change details like the sleeves, outfit length, neckline, and you can even give your own measurements to help get the perfect fit.

I’m a person who likes practicality and versatility. I like getting things that I can wear multiple ways to make the most out of my wardrobe.

Glittering Gown – FT. ModestWear!

Hey Salaam!

I hope you’ve all been doing well! I know it’s been a while since my last post and so much has changed in the world since then. Seasons are changing, semesters ending (THANK GOODNESS), but don’t worry, the weather in Toronto still isn’t quite Spring-ready yet. So, I guess I’m not too behind.

Speaking of behind, since I’ve been gone, I thought I’d try to work forward and try to get ahead this time! So I’m swinging straight into Ramadhan/Eid/Wedding outfit ideas! And my first post of this kind is featuring this gorgeous navy and silver kaftan from ModestWear!

#HIJABIHEROES – Winter 2017!

Seriously, I say it every time, and this time is no excuse, thank you for all of the love, support, and encouragement you have all given me. I love writing the #HijabiHeroes posts, because not only do I just get to gush about how cute everyone is, but I also get some style inspiration myself hehe.

Okay, without further delay, let’s get straight to our Winter #HijabiHeroes!

OOTD – Fall Casual FT. Hijab Loft

Hey lovelies!

Hope you are all doing well! Boy, what a week this has been! Busy to say the least, and I’ve been on that borderline ‘I think I’m getting sick but nothing full fledged yet but it’s been like this for like a week now’. So please pray I don’t get sick!! The weather is changing every second here so we need communal prayers for everyone not to get sick LOL.

Anyways, since the colours are changing and the leaves are falling, so it was only appropriate to post a Fall ootd! I mean we are almost at the end of October, so I think I’m late on this to be honest! Well, I’ve been posting loads of my daily outfits on Instagram, so don’t forget to check that out (self-promo ayyy).

This outfit all started off when I saw this scarf from Hijab Loft. I knew it would be perfect for the Fall and Winter time, and not just as a hijab of course! If you know me, you know I love versatility, so this hijab also makes for a great ‘blanket’ scarf to me! The quality of the fabric is very nice and the material is ideal for this type of look. I love the colours in this Marrakesh hijab from Hijab Loft – pink and grey is one of my favourite combinations for the colder seasons!

HOW TO STYLE: Fur Vests (FT. La Modesty)

Hello Hello!

I’m back with another blogpost! I know it’s been AGES. To be honest, I’ve been kinda out of the blogpost flex lately, and I didn’t want to give you content I wasn’t proud of or enthusiastic about. Also, the new islamic year began, which starts with the two months of sorrow, Muharram and Safar (read more here), so I was also holding off until the first 12 days of Muharram passed.

School is so hectic right now, I’m really feeling the pressure haha! I just finished a midterm yesterday, and I REALLY have been wanting to do this blogpost for you all, so I had to squeeze some time in. Truth be told, this blogpost was a suggestion by a good friend – Fadak! She asked for this how to style post, and I’m happy to deliver! Thanks girl for your continued support ❤️
