Hey my hijabi sisters.
Sorry for going M.I.A for 2 weeks I think. Been super super busy and I am super super sorry I will make a point to update it daily. Well recently on youtube I have been getting some unnecessary comments which I don't know to ignore or to argue back. Let's see it is the video for the hijab with earrings which is here.

Here are the comments:

Such a cute girl, sad that she feels she hast to do this.

fazfazgirl (2 weeks ago) Show Hide

what do you mean she has to do this ?!

tosheatower (2 weeks ago) Show Hide

I mean that she feels (or rather is forced) to wear a Hijab in the first place.

ateeq1588 (2 weeks ago) Show Hide

I think I'll reply to this. I myself know I am NOT forced to wear a hijab. In fact my parents gave me choice to wear it or not its up to me and I've chosen to wear it. So I am not forced. So don't make any judgmental remarks without knowing the truth. Islam is not a religion of forcing ppl to do what they don't want to. It is all in the heart.

tosheatower (2 weeks ago) Show Hide

Who said anything about Islam? Also I don't think I was being judgmental, I was just saying I think it's sad that you feel OR are forced to have to wear it. Fact remains many women in your faith would probably rather not wear it but are forced to, and anytime anyone is forced to do something with their own body they don't want, regardless if its because of religious or social reasons it is WRONG.

Then its up to u. I respect u with your own beliefs and u leave me to mine and I don't see anything wrong with that right. I know I am not forced and I am the happiest I'll ever be, everything on hijab is me doing it voluntarily.Peace =)

actually, its quite the contrary, many women choose to wear hijab. many women have come from places where such styles of dress are enforced, to america where they have a choice....THEY HAVE STILL CHOSEN TO WEAR HIJAB, OR NIQAAB OR WAT EVER.
i believe you are being prejudice, and perhaps a education in what hijab represents and why so many choose it will do you some justification.
no one is forced to do anything, if you choose to be muslim, then YOU choose to follow allah's commandments!

tosheatower (21 hours ago) Show Hide

And if you new the Quran, then you would know that to follow Allah's commandments a women does NOT have to wear a headress! In the Quran it says a woman should dress modestly and cover her bosom. Not sure where you keep your bosom but last time I check a woman doesn't need to cover her head to cover her chest!!!!

So as you can see this tosheatower girl have been stirring up an arguement which I don't like. What should I do? Should I just block her? Please give me your opinions girl.

PS: Tutorial coming up tonight!

My Mum's Wedding Photos 1987

So here are my mum's wedding photos. Be noted that before her marriage my mum have not started wearing hijab yet until after marriage so don't make any judgment of she took her hijab off for just one day. Thank you and have fun looking at her wedding styles.

Her Wedding "hijab" styles in the 1980's

She in a black abaya and white abaya like dress.

These 2 photos are below are actually traditional costumes. The head gear on the right is actually a Minang Kabau costume not a hijab style.

These traditional costumes now are easy to find the hijabify version of it. I remember how much I loved looking at her wedding photos for a very long time and thinking how lovely she looked.
So I wonder what you girls think of all these 1980s wedding costumes ? Talking about now will you wear something like these for your wedding? heh.

Colour Splash

Throw out ALL your black outfits and splash them with colours. Eid Adha is around the corner so I have put up 2 ensembles for it one of abaya and one of jilbab. Ladies I suggest to you PLEASE avoid wearing ALL black on such a wonderful day it will make someone feel gloomy. ALL white is a yes please do but all BLACK is a definite no-no.

Blue Fever by Cre8tively Hijab

Splashes of blue to go with the black and blue sequinned abaya

Jilbab Chic Set by Cre8tively Hijab
Pink will make you look more on the softer side and the shoe will totally jazz things up for you.
I will keep things coming for this upcoming Eid Adha sorry for the lack of update as I have been struck with the FLU & working hasn't gave me the luxury of time to update. So stay tuned for more =)

Dubai Abaya On Me

Today I had the mood to dress up a little to work for the first time ever wearing abaya which my cousin bought from Dubai. It was for my mum but I lent it from my mum. I love colours so I loved how the abaya looked on me . Here are the photos :

Man I look like a dwarf in the last photo, superbly short!
You may wonder why I wore a belt. It is only because my abaya is too big and long. The belt actually helps to shorten the length cos i pulled out about an inch of the dress over the belt. So what do you think about this abaya style? FYI I did the whole 9 yards wearing eyeliner and mascara and all. LOL. But hey the reaction I got from public was kinda surprising, people gave me stares and smiles for I don't know why.Any idea why?

Hijabi Style Star 2 - Inneke Koesherawati

Inneke Koesherawati.

The woman whose name is BOOMING in Singapore prior to the TV series she starred in called " Istri Untuk Suami ku" ( A Wife For My Husband). Her role is of a very strong woman who can't conceive a child therefore she looked for a second wife for her husband. I ALWAYS shed tears watching this show.Too sad. You may find it surprising but in real life Inneke too is having trouble conceiving a child therefore I think her acting in the TV series is strong cause she knows the well-being of the character too well. But come on who in real life willing to look for a second wife for their husbands? If there are out there. I really look up to these people cause they are SUPERWOMEN.

So here are her beautiful styles :)

I LOVE ALL of her styles she is just to gorgeous for words :) Leave a comment if you've fallen for her style too!

New Photo

I did up a new simple photo so I just want a bit of thoughts on it how is the look or the photo quality, any comments on the lighting and editing please do leave a comment alright?

Besides that then tell me if the photo has a strong look or just too fierce /scary looking.

A Good Friend

What's your definition of being a good friend?
  • A friend that is always by your side.
  • A friend that laughs WITH you and maybe sometimes laugh AT you.
  • A friend that always lend a shoulder to cry on.
  • It may all sounds easy but its a tough job to do trust me.

Being a good friend does involve :
  • Being happy for your friend though you envy at what they have.
  • Making one of the biggest sacrifices for them.
  • Pretend to be happy and alright with every of their actions although you are hurt by it.
  • Most of all you must be understanding and being understanding is VERY HARD to do at times.
  • Have you ever felt lonely even though you have plenty of good friends? I have.

So what criteria or who do you usually consider a good friend ? Anything to add to the list of how to be a good friend just drop a comment.

PS: I miss u my girlfriends!
