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 😉

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.

#HIJABIHEROES – Winter 2017!

I thought, what better way to show my love and gratitude to you all than posting a #HijabiHeroes post on Valentine’s Day?! 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.

If you’d like to be featured in my Spring #HijabiHeroes post, please comment below or message me! I would love to have you on here 🙂

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

OOTD – Ombré Attire

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing well!

Okay, I know, I’m a terrible person 🙊 I am SO off my game! My posting schedule is basically nonexistent because #HHSundays aren’t even a thing anymore! I’m really sorry! I started summer school last week so things have just been really busy with assignments and projects! But, to make up for it, I’m doing 2 blogposts this week. The much awaited #HH Spring post is coming, sooner rather than later inshallah! So definitely stay tuned!

Before I begin, Congratulations to you all on the Birth Anniversary of the Grandson of the Holy Prophet, Imam Hussain (AS), and the son of Imam Ali, Hazrat Abbas (AS), and then the son of Imam Hussain, Imam Zainul Abideen (AS)! I cannot believe it’s already Shabaan and these 3 holy nights are upon us!
In celebration of these blessed events, I thought I’d just share a quick outfit with you all!

I actually ordered this outfit online from Falak-E-Noor Boutique! I found them on Instagram, and unfortunately their account is down for some reason, but I was pleasantly surprised with the great service! The outfit arrived exactly how it appeared in the picture and the stitching was also really great. It fit perfectly!

OOTD – Baseball T’s and Flannels ✌🏽

Hi Hi!

I’m super stressed with exams this week (3 back to back 😰), but I needed a break from a long day of studying, so thought I’d whip up a quick blogpost 😋

Before I continue on with this post, I never announced it on here, so I wanted to tell you all!
*drum roll please*
The Hijab Souq launched a blog called Aspiring Muslimah and I’m one of the 11 aspiring muslimahs part of it! Hehe get it 😏 It’s a blog for fashion, lifestyle, design, and much more and I’m beyond excited and honoured to be involved! You can check out my first post here!

A while back, I realized my wardrobe was consisting more of a bit dressier items, and I never really had anything to wear for casual days. I couldn’t just throw on a t-shirt, because I didn’t really own any LOL (excluding the t-shirts I use as PJs obviously hehe)! I was on the hunt for long sleeve, long, loose fitting t-shirts at the mall, and that was predestined to be an unsuccessful mission. The 3 L’s. Long Sleeves, Long Length, and Loose Fitting. I might as well have been looking for thick chunky sweaters in the middle of Summer in the Bahamas!! Alas, at the store I least expected to satisfy my needs, I found these super cute long baseball tees from VS Pink! I was so excited, and they were on sale too! 🙊

HOW TO STYLE: Little Black (Maxi) Dress (Back to Basics) FT. ModeSTyles

Hiiiii guys (Dina Tokio voice LOL)!

I hope you are all doing well, and if you are amidst exam season, I hope those are going well! My first exam is Friday and I finish exams next week! Sorry for the delay with this blogpost, it’s just been super busy these past couple of days.

If you’ve been here for a while, you’ll know about my How to Style series! You might also know that HTS posts are actually one of my favourite blogposts to write! I find them helpful to myself, so I really enjoy it! As my style is transitioning to more basic pieces, I really wanted to show how I style my wardrobe essentials. So an off-shooting from the How To Style series is the Back to Basics stream! Back to Basics will feature my wardrobe staples, including a simple black maxi dress in this post! I’m so excited for upcoming posts inshallah 🙉

Ahh the Little Black Dress! Known to be a staple in a woman’s wardrobe. In this case, it’s a Little Black (Maxi) Dress! They’re super easy and essential in my opinion, and can be dressed up or down to fit the occasion. Maxi dresses in general are very convenient to just throw on, and black ones especially are pretty awesome. I’m wearing a simple straight cut black maxi from H&M in all of the pictures!

OOTD – Coins and Kicks FT. Luluwaah

Hola Canolis!

I FINALLY MADE IT FOR #HHSUNDAY. I know the past couple weeks I’ve been off my game, but ya girl is back on track.

I have SO many blogposts lined up, I’m kinda going crazy aha! It’s going to be some hectic times, but I’m excited! I also have exams coming up (eww, I know right), but let’s not worry about that too much eh 😅

I just wanted to share this quick ootd with you all! It’s a little typical, it’s a little different.

If you’ve noticed for the past couple of months, the colour grey has becoming a standard colour in my wardrobe. Grey is my new Black haha. I find that I am really attracted to grey now because it’s so easy to style! Grey matches with everything and can work for casual or formal occasions. It’s my go-to colour now.

OOTD – Maroon Maxi and Simple Slits

Hey hey!

I hope you are all doing well!

Mega apologies for not having a blogpost up this weekend! MIST Toronto is this weekend and I’m GOING CRAZY haha! There is so much to prep and as I am Competitions Co-Manager, I have a lot to finish up before the tournament days!
So heads up – blogposts will be delayed next week too, but there may be two to make up for it 😉

Before I begin, I just wanted to say Happy International Women’s Day! 💓

I wanted to share a quick OOTD with you all!
With the weather fluctuating so much, I haven’t been able to start transitioning my wardrobe into Spring wear. It’s all a big tease – one day I think it’s Spring, the next day there’s a huge snow storm and classes get cancelled!

As you all know, one of my favourite pieces to wear are maxi dresses! Unfortunately, when the winds are blowing at 9706454 km an hour, or if there are layers of snow and ice on the ground, they’re not always practical! But I just couldn’t take all the bundling anymore! I mean layering is really fun and a hijabi’s dream, but I really miss the warm weather! So for my MIST meeting this past Sunday, I decided to compromise with this high slit maxi t-shirt dress from Zara!

How to Transform your Outfit from DAY to NIGHT – FT. Zisanzo Watches

Hello there!

Another week, another blogpost! For this week, I decided to do something a little different, but hopefully helpful for those busy days!

I thought it’d be cool to write about how to transform an outfit from day to night!  We all know that casual attire is more suited for the day time, and we tend to wear darker colours or dress up a bit for evening events. Hence, I wanted to take one basic outfit and show you how you can change it to work for both day and night!

So, my BIGGEST Style Tip for this is – it all depends on the ACCESSORIES!

It is ALL about the accessories! All you need is your core items and you can manipulate your accessories to make your outfit appropriate for any time of day.

Let’s break it down:
