You Are Cordially Invited To...

The wedding of the year...may it be your best friend's wedding, your sister's, cousin's. Any wedding at all we do want to put our best foot forward when it comes to how we dress for the event. We want to look beautiful but not out shine the bride.

So I've put 3 ensembles which you can try yourself and put your personal touch to it. A dress look, a skirt and a pants look, which will suit for the wedding event.


I LOVE LOVE LOVE this skirt look. I love the dorothy perkins skirt. Its just gorgeous.

The dress look

Shoes & green dress are to die for.

The pants look


I usually hate leopard prints but the leopard print on the watch is just beautiful! I love the dress structure too! The clutch is super unique.

I personally love the pants and skirt look best.
If you were to go to a wedding which look would you wear?

Any hijabis trying to lead a healthier lifestyle?

I've got a very very good site to help you to lose a few pounds or more. But you've got to be disciplined. Sparkpeople.com.

I am loving this site and hooked to it. It has a nutrition tracker which shows you how much you should eat daily in order to reach your goal. You will take note of what you've eaten for entire day and put it down on the tracker and you can see how much you consumed so you don't over eat.

There is a fitness tracker where you have to plan your exercise like they recommend cardio 3 times a week and they will give you strength training exercise plan. They will show you how much calories you should burn a day in order to reach your goal.

In all I love this because it's like getting a fitness trainer & fitness program for free =) So I'd recommend you  join it today to a healthier you.

10 Essential Items That Makes Up...

The core of a wardrobe for a hijabi. Be aware that I am using Tim Gunn's style guide & tips. To learn more watch Tim Gunn's Guide To Style.

CHECKLIST OF A HIJABI MUST HAVE

1 ) Black Dress
2) Classic White Shirt
3) Blazer
4) Dress Pants
5) Day Dress OR Trench Coat ( Depends on the weather you're living in. If you have 4 seasons make it 11 Essential items)
6) Jeans
7) Long Skirt
8) Black Hijab ( Shayla or square hijabs up to you)
9) White Hijab
10 ) Wild Print Hijab

So here are all the 10 or 11 items I've chosen...

I swear i can create SOOO many looks with these 10 items and here I've come up with 6
The black dress office look. You can also turn this into an evening look.
You can actually wear this to work, school or you can wear this to hang out with your girlfriends or off to the beach or park because this look is all about being comfortable.
This is the meeting look. Or the office look. Or to school if you've got a big presentation.

The trench cost look is for the rainy or cold days to the office or just out to the mall. Very girly pink.
This is the day look I love the long sleeve maxi dress but hey you don't need to spend hundreds to own this dress. You can go shopping and bargain hunting & you can get something similar to this and still look great. This is great for everyday event.
The day dress is great because it can turn into a dinner look event kind of dress with the right accessories , shoes and hijab it will look fabulous for dinner outings at a high end restaurant.

***I hope this post has been useful if you're looking forward to REVAMP your wardrobe. BUT remember don't throw away what you already own, look at what you already have.For eg. a black dress or a white blouse or maybe that cute dress in your closet that you bought but haven't wear yet, then you can strike those off the check list and save more money to buy other stuffs.

Those clothes that you don't want you can give it away to family & friends or sell them online.

Dato' Siti Nurhaliza's Style

Dato' Siti Nur Haliza, She wears very modestly but people in the public don't adore her hijab style. Well we will hope she will embrace the full thing insyaallah. Well her dresses are to die for though!

I love this look soooooo grand! The designer is Rizman Ruzaini, he have designed for her a lot of times. These photos are from his site. Look here.

Look at the length and the dress, glorious & well made. Well we can wear a nice light blue or ivory shayla under the hood.

She looks pretty in a full hijab doesn't she? Pretty in pink

Can I have this blue dress too?

I LOVE this look BEST. I think I might want to rip the style off for this year's Eid. LOL. Which one do you love?

Hijabi Style Star 4 : Zaskia A. Mecca

Zaskia A. Mecca is known through the movie "Ayat-ayat Cinta" and religious type of sinetrons such as "Kiamat sudah dekat". She is one of many entertainers who wears the hijab. She's got a very cute style too. Most of the time she rocks al-amira hijab which looks totally cute on her.



I know she makes al-amiras look superb.

These are the moments we see rarely when she wears something other than premade hijabs. I love the red one what about you? So who haven't catch her in the much talked about indonesian movie that came out last year or 2 years back should totally watch it, Its up on youtube. Its about a man who have 2 wives, oh you should just watch it, it will take me long to tell you the entire details.

Got Dandruff Problems? Here's a natural solution!


Well for hijabis we have to take extra care of our hair since we cover them most of the time. Do you know that almost 40 % of the world's population has dandruff? There are many reasons for this, either you got oily scalp or your scalp is too dry. Maybe due to the weather too. So this causes your dead skin cells from your scalp to shed faster which is called dandruff.

I've read some online sources and most of them said that vinegar is one of the most effective way to get rid of the flakes.

Solution
1) Rinse your hair with water preferably cold water
2) Sprayed white vinegar on your scalp
3) Let it soak in for about five minutes
4) Then wash your hair with dandruff shampoo of your choice and use conditioner as per normal

There are other natural ways such as
- tea tree oil
-lime ( Is one of the simplest way!)
-beet roots
-soap bark
These are just a few of the things to use.

If you want more tips on how to get rid of dandruff from people who experience them head down here: http://www.natural-cures-for.com/remedies/dandruff

Tips: Remember to always wash your hair with cold or luke warm water because hot water will only dry out your scalp and causes dandruff too!

If you have any remedies to share with other fellow hijabis out there who are facing this problem please do comment :D
