2011 Resolution :)

Salamo Aalikom (Peace upon you) all!
Al Hamdulil Allah I consider myself a positive and optimistic person (most of the time ;)) ...and with only few hours left in 2010 looking forward to 2011! Most importantly I have been working on my "New Year's Resolution” list :))

Truth to be said, few years back I wasn't good at getting any of the tasks/resolutions done...but Al Hamdulil Allah…for the past 2-3 years I managed to write down challenging but achievable goals on my resolution list AND get most of them done! :)
I am still working on my new list...but would love to share with you most of my beauty, health and fashion resolutions :)

I'll be posting the name of the resolution and my practical steps to get it accomplished...and would love to hear your thoughts if you agree or disagree (or have a different experience you'd like to share :) )
Stay tuned: New Year's Resolution Series- Part 1: The Muslim Sunni-wood Smile! :))) Hehee :)

Fall/Winter 2010/2011 Must-Have Series (Part2) :Biker-Look!

I never thought I could experiment with black leather/ biker-style just isn't my style...BUT this season I decided to think out of the box and try new things that were "No-No" here is what I came up with! :) Enjoy!

The cross-over black leather bag with chains or studs and a chain-like necklace are essential for the look.     
I thought of using a yellow pashmina to brighten up the look and matches well with the yellow flowers (in the dress)  :)
Hope you like it!

Dress : H&M
Boots & Necklace & Bag : Monsoon

Fall/Winter 2010/2011 Must-Have Series (Part1) : Leopard Attack!

I think all of you fashionistas noticed that Leopard print/pattern is available in each and every store you walk in.
My advice is to use only one leopard print item at a time and keep the rest of the look plain and simple. If you aren't a very big fan of this pattern, then use leopard pattern accessories (shoes, scarf or go funky and try a hat) to get the trendy, up-to-date look without overspending :))

Stay tuned! I'll be posting how I used a leopard print item to update my wardrobe ;)

Scarf : H&M
The rest : ZARA

DIY Pedicure :)

Step 1 :
 Soak your feet in a soothing foot bath of lemon slices and warm water. Pat dry and make sure you dry between your toes carefully after bathing.


Step 2 :
Use the flat side of a pumice stone to get rid of hard skin on the soles of your feet. Don't rub too vigorously- a gentle rubbing is fine.

Step 3 :
Trim your nails with nail clippers. You should always cut them straight across, to prevent in-growing toe nails.

Step 4 :
Using an emery board, file nails smooth .File from the outer corners inwards until you get them the shape you want.

Step 5 :
Use an orange stick tipped with cotton wool to clean under your nails. Ease back the cuticles gently.

Step 6 :
Option 1 : Massage body lotion into your feet  and toe nails. Work upwards towards your ankles and calves.
Option 2 : You could try a foot mask. Massage the mask on, watch your favourite T.V show then rinse off.

An Extra Tip :
If you are suffering from very dry soles, apply a thick/heavy moisturizer ( Cocoa Butter based) or Olive oil and wear cotton socks through the night. Result GUARANTEED!

Global Pink Hijab Day 27th of October :))

Salamo Aalikom to all my lovely sisters and fashionistas out there :)
Today is the "Global Pink Hijab Day" we support,donate to and raise awarness about one of the most vicious diseases; Breast Cancer. Pink Hijab Day is designed to encourages Muslim women (and men) to participate in Breast Cancer awareness activities.The event also encourages the curious to ask Muslim women about their Hijabs, or Islamic headscarves.
All over the world, Muslims participated by wearing pink hijabs, pink ribbons, and donating to breast cancer foundations.
I pray to Allah that He (SWT) will protect all of us and grant us a healthy , productive life enshaa Allah. 

I'll leave you now with a cute video done by Ryerson Muslim Students Association- Ryerson University..Enjoy :))

Latest Buys And What I Wore To Breakfast Yesterday :))

A number of sisters sent me emails requesting to share my latest buys, so here you go girls! :))

1) Puff sleeve shirt :  Puff-sleeved shirts are all over the place as you all know.

Paris Hilton in a puff-sleeved shirt

 At the beginning of this trend I wasn't really a fan of it because it reminded me the 80's puff sleeves (which I HATED but HAD to wear because my mum thought it looked really chic and trendy on me ggggggrrrrrrrhhhh!). I changed my mind the moment my eyes fell on this super cute demin shirt at Femi9 :))))

 2) Sunglasses : Over-sized sunglasses are still super fashionable, so I got a new pair from Vera Moda.

3) Silk Scarf:
 Actually I got this scarf to match with my new shirt.I got it from Accessorize and because am REALLY obsessed with the idea of turbans , I bought a mini tube shirt (a bra-like shirt) from Bershka and combined it with the scarf to add a turban-like effect.


 4) Ruffle Bag : Got this adorable beige ruffled bag from Saki Bags ( By Bubble Handmade Products) to complete the look ;)

Now for the final look ! Taraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!And this is what I wore yesterday while having breakfast with my mumi :))                    

 This is a wooden flower brooch I got from Parfois more than a year ago but never used..matched perfectly! :)))                                                                          

If you liked my buys and how I combined everything together plz do leave a comment :))) Thanx !             
Oh yea! and if you wanna share your cute outfits plz do email me and I'll post your (altered) photo with the sisters! :))

How to Tie a Turban Video :)

Hope you'll like it enshaa Allah and hope you'll comment on it :))

Turbans-The New Trend

Salamo Aalikom Sisters! :) If you are a true fashionista, you'll probably know that turbans are everywhere! From Ralph Lauren show to Queen Tuanku Nur Zahirah and HH Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser :)

As a Hijabi we could look very elegant wearing a turban, however I have to say we must do some alteration to be Islamically acceptable! Turbans don't cover the neck so we have to do some effort in order to adapt this trend :)

This post will include photos of turbans worn in fashion shows and by public figures. I'll be posting later 2 more posts concerning turbans too; first would be a video and the second will be an Islamic tutorial on how to wear a turban. Hope you'll like it, enjoy it and comment on it enshaa Allah :)
