Ooh You Mad Cuz I’m Styling On You

  Autumn/Winter is really upon us, so large coats and knits are a must to keep warm. This long teddy coat is from H&M and has a vintage feel to it which I love. It's good to experiment with patterned knits & jumpers to brighten up your outfits. Sometimes winter dressing can seem quite dull. …

Fashion Week, Modest Perspective

With Fashion Week coming to a close, its that time to look back at some of the best looks from each city. Modest fashion is ever growing within the current fashion climate, and with the influence of social platforms the fashion world seems to be drifting into a new demographic. There are still many misconceptions…

Less Of The Labels

Man am I tired of hearing what the intellectual world and some Muslims think a Western person who adopts Islam as a way of life, should be called.  I am not a Convert and certainly no Revert! I happen to be a human being who believes in one God and the original Jewish, Christian and Islamic scriptures, making me a Muslim, I don’t need an additional label to clarify or categorise me further.

Two Years In The Making

I've just sneaked off away from my little one to my small work space upstairs, while she entertains herself with a puzzle so I can talk to you guys a little bit about my latest project.. MODESTLY my Book.  Yes Mama I'm officially an author, something I never thought I could say! Much like now,…

How Modest are we though?

 I turned 29 the other week and I’m pregnant with baby no2. I mention being pregnant just incase all of my emotions can be excused due to that. I have to be honest with you the run up to my birthday I was dreading it. Not that I ever really do anything for it or…

#YourAverageMuslim

Hi guys, welcome to the introduction of my 4 part series exploring #YourAverageMuslim. A short series I've ben working on for a while now as my work as an ambassador for the Creators For Change programme run by Youtube. I'm pretty tired of constantly being praised for 'breaking the stereotype' just because I'm a Muslim…

SPONTANEITY

The other week I got a message from an old friend Dian Pelangi (most of you will know her, a very successful Indonesian Fashion designer.) She very kindly invited me to her show in Paris in order to show my support and have a general catch up! It's been a few years since we saw each other last! There was about four days left for the show and usually this is too short notice for me to travel what with having a toddler and meetings booked weeks in advance. Originally I was busy the day she would showcase so I politely declined, but was pretty gutted to miss it. Thankfully a few days later my original plans were cancelled and I'm not sure what I'd been eating but I decided to message Dian there and then to let her know that I could now make it! Bear in mind this was literally the night before her show, and for me that's pretty last minute! I was only planning on going for a quick day trip on the eurostar and decided to bring my younger bro Hassan to keep me company, he's a pretty LIT lad. LOL

MUSLIM MEN

Most of you will be familiar with my rants every now and then, be it in vlogs, instagram captions or a little write up, and now I'm about to embark on another little bit of controversy regarding men, right here on this page. BTW I only say 'controversy' because people seem to get very sensitive…

FASHION AIN’T FRIENDLY

Lately I've been thinking a lot about fashion, especially since fashion month has recently ended and we've been bombarded with fashion fashION FASHION for the last few weeks or so all over our instagram feeds. Okay I admit I did take part in the 'shove it down your throats' fashion feed content during LFW but at…

PIZZA DELIVERY

The story of todays post is a simple one. Plain & simple, much like a classic margherita pizza. I was making my way to one of our newly found favourite pizza spots, ended up in the bank for an hour and then didn't have time to actually get my beloved pizza. Went home with no pizza,…

SO RELIGIOUS

Todays post is all about makeup, or the lack thereof during this month of Ramadan. It's not because I've suddenly become more religious, or suddenly decided that makeup is a big fat sin, it's simply because I have no energy for anything, let alone my face, you'll be glad to know. On that note, can we stop…

FIVE OUT OF FIVE

Recently I haven't shut up about my love for sweaters & jumpers so I'm sure you're all aware by now that the love is real. There's just something so effortless and versatile about them, I find myself grabbing one to wear with most things everyday. Generally I'll buy them at least two sizes too big for…

SIZE 14

I'm one of those people that generally don't suit jumpsuits but I love them and always imagine wearing them just never actually do. Until today that is. Just a bit of background information for you, I bought this particular one last winter in the Christmas sales from Jack Wills (literally the only piece I own…
