What to/ How to/ Haul..


With the winter months here, I know it’s hard for us Hijabi’s to figure out what we want to wear whilst still being modest!

I’ve always been a boots kind of girl and dug out an old pair or two of knee high boots that I got a few summers ago during the sales which I was so glad to find! They were £30 from the ASOS sale so a complete bargain and something like a long jacket and knee high boots is perfect for a hijabi to wear when it’s wet outside and you don’t want to get your skirt or abaya wet but still want to look modest :)

I love the fact that the calf bit of these boots isn’t too big for my skinny legs and that they’re flat so are comfortable to wear all day!

I love the gold embellishment and soft black leather of these shoes as I’m not a fan of patent shiny leather. I could wear these with any outfit! If you’re wondering, I’m a size 5 :)
Unfortunately ASOS don’t sell these exact shoes anymore but here are a similar pair.

If its not that wet and cold where you live then ankle boots are the way forward! If you cover your feet and don’t wear pumps unless they’re with socks, try some ankle booties like these! They have a wedge but it is only 2 inches high with an inch platform so it’s perfect for giving height without being over the top! I wear ankle boots with my abayas and skirts all the time and they always look fab. I’ve never worn them with jeans etc as I don’t wear jeans and they don’t provide me with enough coverage :)

These tan boots are from River Island for £35. They have a lovely colour which like black, suits most outfits and gives a lovely option other than black. I like the laces too as they add a little something extra when most of the show is covered by your skirt. They also come in black!

The next items are for the wedding season that is approaching! I’m so excited for my cousins wedding that is coming up in less than a month and decided to pick out some abayas for options that I could wear. Being on the hunt for a bargain, I looked on eBay and found a seller with the best abayas there are online at the moment! I think there was a sale on at the time or perhaps they were just really cheap but I was so happy when I got them! Also, they gave me a discount because I bought more than one which I was SO happy about!

I love all the detail that has gone into the embroidery of this wonderful brown abaya. The detailing is orange, brown and silver and it is all hand made! I like the intricate touches of the scarf detail and little embellishment on the back too. I’ve also shown you how I’d wear the scarf. Please excuse the bulkiness in the neckline image as I tried to cover my modesty. Find the buyer here! They have new stock regularly! Although this particular abaya is now gone, this next one is still available!

This grey abaya with silver embroidery is my fave!! I love the colour and style of it and it looks beautiful on! They also sell these in other colours and its a bargain at £21.99! They dispatched the item really quick, gave me a really good discount for postage and packaging and had excellent customer service! I’ve got my eye on this glittery one next! They also have an array of sizes.. So get measuring!!

This next abaya is from another seller and is more casual! The price and material is lovely and it’s perfect for those cold spring nights! I like the simple detailing! Although this one is slightly larger on me, I will be cutting the bottom and will be sure to post a picture of me wearing this on my Facebook and Instagram @inherbubble!

The detailing is simple and easy to wear and because it has no beading, nothing will fall off! I love the colour and the way it drops. The scooped neck insures optimum coverage and the waist can be tailored by the in-built belt in the abaya! Find the seller here!They have bargains and this abaya was only £19.99

My next favourite is BLACK! I’m loving black scarves at the moment and this scarf from Tie Rack is AMAZING! I love the thickness and tassels. Although the material does itch a little bit, I think it’s because I have quite sensitive skin! I’ve been loving wearing my scarf like this too! One pin jobby! LAZY DAISY FAIZY!

This scarf is huge and you don’t need to wear any other scarf or snood with this! It’s at Tie Rack for £24.99.

My favourite websites for fashion shopping!!


HELLO GORGEOUS PEOPLE!

So I tweeted my love of some new shoes I wanted to get from Topshop that I saw @persianbpape (twitter) mention! I fell in love with them because they are so different! So thought I’d tell you some of my favourite shops and websites to shop from and what I’m loving there right now!

Topshop
These shoes are definitely like marmite! I love them! I’m looking for work shoes at the moment and general black flats that I can wear! I need to let my feet breathe though, because I’m on my feet for 8 hours of the day (thank you retail), and because of this, my feet get swollen and really hot sometimes! These look perfect! They aren’t too expensive either and look lovely!

Dorothy Perkins
I’m loving these boots from Dorothy Perkins! I love the golden heel and I’m a big fan of suede! They deliver internationally too which is a bonus! I like the black because it’ll go with everything but the small pop of gold gives it a nice edge.

These heels are :O! Need I say more! Colours, style, everything! DP are having 20% off sale at the moment on their shoes too which ends tomorrow so hurry up and grab them!

20120816-021919.jpg

eBay
The home of everything! I stopped buying designer things from their stores when eBay came about! I’ve been hearing a lot of hype about Bioderma makeup remover so when I found a seller who had it for a fantastic price, I had to pick it up! I’m waiting for it to arrive but hopefully I’ll love it!

There’s hundreds more that I could tell you but I want to do a products of the month review at some point this week!

Also massive blog post about Eid coming up too!!

I live tweeting.. Just call me a bird!

Rose gold


Let the obsession begin!!!

I’ve been absolutely loving Rose Gold since the start of the year where I found tonnes of Jewellery shops in Dubai full of it!

It’s the perfect colour to wear with anything and it’s like another version of silver for me! It hasn’t yet reached the UK high street with a bang but I’m sure it will as there is plenty of demand for it! If you find gold too garish and silver clashes, then rose gold is definitely the one for you!

20120805-115646.jpg

I found these rings from an eBay seller “own_theparty” and they have a lot of variety! I find them to be the perfect cocktail rings! And they were really cheap as well.. Ranging from £1.99- £3.99!

These shoes were from Marks and Spencer for £25! They’re comfy and flattering flats which will look good with any outfit! I like the detail on the back and the chain across the back of it is a nice edgy touch!

The watch was from Asos and originally £40! But not for me!! I found a random eBay seller a while back selling this for £15 so I grabbed it whilst I could! It’s the perfect oversized size and I like round clock faces too so this was perfect! Keep an eye out on eBay for it cause I’ve seen a few sellers with it! If you have more of a budget.. Kenneth Cole and Michael Kors do really nice watches too!

    Who knows.. May be it’ll become so big they’ll start using rose gold medals instead of gold in the Olympics!

July favourites 2012


The end of the month is nigh and I thought I’d tell you guys my favourite things!
It’s been a gorgeous month! Weather has been mostly sunny and beautiful and I’m loving it! The month of Ramadhan has also been SUPER! I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it and to know more than a week has gone is quite sad but onwards and upwards!

I’m quite good at constantly changing my make up, clothes and routine but these are the things that have remained consistent this month:

  • Body shop lip and cheek stain! This stuff has staying power like no other and I absolutely love it! I don’t really use it on my lips as I find it SUPER drying but I like it on my cheeks! Don’t quote me on this but I think it has that pH effect that some other blushes have too cause I feel it darkens throughout the day depending on the way I’m feeling (hot/cold).. Not sure whether it’s just me but it’s excellent!

20120731-002311.jpg

  • Good things face mask! I blame this for my lovely skin at the moment! It evens/ reduces oil and is so easy to use! I’m not too keen on leaving stuff on my face for too long as it can get quite sensitive skin so this 5 minute one is fantastic! For extra exfoliation I use an exfoliation brush to brush it off with and I get really soft skin!

20120731-002227.jpg

  • I’m all about comfort this month! Because I’m fasting and on my feet all day at work.. I’ve told my manager to stuff the uniform and I’m wearing whatever shoes I like! I’ve been loving these spotty pumps from Dorothy Perkins! You can tell they’re well loved but I absolutely love them! I’ve worn them in, they go with everything and they’re a bit different.. PERFECT!

20120731-000314.jpg

  • Again.. I’ve been going casual all month and whenever I need to go out, I’ve been choosing to wear the most coolest thing over my abaya but something which is still modest. I do go without something over my abaya too but I have a rather large backside so I tend to put something over it regardless! This blazer I got about two years ago and I love it! I would advise trying the blazer on before you purchase though cause for sure.. The fitting of a blazer is what makes it look good! You might be a size 10 normally but you’ll probably need a size 8 blazer so just try before you buy! (Can’t believe I just found this on eBay! I paid £50 for mine so you’re getting a real bargain!)

20120731-002818.jpg

  • Minimal minimal minimal! And I can’t be bothered with handbags and carrier bags and shopping bags! I got this clutch (Select phone and laptop bags) from Topshop and it’s ingenious! It has an iPhone holder which holds any iPhone version as well as a section for your cards and cash which is all I really need! I don’t know where to put my car keys though and it’s quite annoying holding them but if you’re with someone who has a handbag.. I’m sure my keys will find a way into their bag :)

20120731-000506.jpg

  • PARTY RINGS!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU! The perfect snack after you open your fast and I love dipping them in my tea! They just make me happy and remind me of my childhood! And they’re not too unhealthy either so BONUS!

20120731-000548.jpg

  • Mr. A! My gorgeous! He’s not just my favourite of the month! He’s my favourite of the past 4 years and many more to come! It was his birthday this month and I’m sure he had a fantastic day! I’ve also got a little surprise planned for later on in the year for him! This was his last birthday without me! Next year when we’re married.. I’ll be sure that he’s woken up on his birthday with party poppers and streamers in his face! I LOVE YOU BUBBLE! :D

Hope you all had a fantastic month and are enjoying your Ramadhan this year! Make sure you all take advantage of this year cause it may be your last and ensure you not only pray to Allah, but obey your parents and look after them too!

Remember.. Your parents are your gods on Earth!
