Here in the States the kids had the whole week off from school which mean, I was home entertaining them all week long, I'm worn out Today my daughter and I decided to sew a pair of pajama pants. Now this wasnt a easy task because, I don’t know how to sew…lol This was my first sewing project ever . It was a little frustrating at time but we were able to complete a pajama pants for her and her teddy. If you asks me they are pretty cute. What you think?

Fresh Faces (Makeup Edition)

Salaams friends!

I hope everyone is smiling and warm ;0)...

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite makeup with you. I'm a huge fan of natural nude makeup for an everyday look. I'm a lover of all things M.A.C but sometimes its not the most affordable. Here is a mash up of items that I use. I start with cleansing and moisturizing my face before applying anything. M.A.C concealer for my dark under eye circles is next, a small amount of Maybelline Matte Mousse for my face follows, then some Loreal Double Extended mascara to lengthen my lashes.  I top it off with 3 nude M.A.C lipglosses to create the perfect nude lip for my complexion. Viola!! That's all it takes to create a fresh faced everyday look. I hope this was useful. Below are a few pics of how it looks on me as well as a few pics of my inspiration. Of course its Kim Kardashian lol, no one wears makeup better than her!

Salaams Ummah, Jummah Mubarak and a happy Friday to you all.

I absolutely adore Fridays for all the obvious reasons and much much MORE (insert sly smile here lol). I usually head to my Masjid during lunch for the Jummah service and a much needed khutbah. Dressing in traditional garb on Fridays is a must. Today I threw on my favorite super comfy navy blue abaya with a camel colored H&M cardigan and some Uggs. I topped it off with a Gucci bag and my favorite Aldo accessories.

R&B Showcase at SOB’s in NYC

As salaamu alaikum. Hiii honey bunnies :0) ...

Last night was an amazing night. I had the opportunity to hang out with some friends and hit the city for an R&B showcase at SOB's. At first I was very hesitant and nervous. I haven't been to a social event since I took my shahadah and I've never been around my "industry" peers wearing hijab. Although I was nervous once I was dressed and hit the scene I felt a boost of confidence, and surprisingly my hijab gave me an immense sense of pride. Some amazing talent was displayed at the showcase and I'm very happy I decided to go. We Muslimahs should always feel confident and comfortable representing Islam AND that was my lesson learned... MashaAllah!!

Army Green Dream

Here's a little something I put together for work today. I am in love with Army green colored items and took advantage of that today. I have on 7 of all mankind jeans, a Zara military inspired dress, Steve Madden motorcycle boots, a classic Gucci bag and my favorite pashmina/hijab. Fashionable... Modest... CUTE

Sushi Yum!!!

 Salaam Everyone,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
Today my hubby and I went to an all you can eat sushi place for lunch… It was sooo yummy!! They had about 15 different kinds of sushi rolls and I think my hubby had all 15 lol.  I, on the other hand, only had 4 different kinds. I am extremely picky, and hate trying new foods. I must say the ones that I had were really good and on top of that they were super fresh. Are you sushi eater? If so what’s your favorite sushi roll? Mine is spicy shrimp tempura. Yum!

Imaan the Muslimah (LOL)

As salaamu alaikum ... Hiiieee Lovlies!

I wanted to share a recent purchase I made with you guys.

I call her Imaan, the Muslimah :0) ...
I was walking through Target last week and she stopped me dead in my tracks. Everything about this painting intrigued me. A black woman, with her head covered completely relates to my current life, and the fact that she has on cute hoop earings was an extra treat. She looks so relaxed and peaceful... I think she is soooo beautiful.

Check it out... Do you love it?

Traditional Muslimah Garb

    I wanted to talk briefly about the traditional way of dressing for Muslimahs.
As a new Muslimah, who was once a slave to the fashion world, its a bit of a struggle for me to dress in the traditional garb. Big shapeless abayas and khimars along with covering my latest wash and set with a hijab was truly a mortifying thought for me. As I began to study and learn more about why us Muslimahs should be covered up, I embraced it wholeheartedly. I must say, its a relief to walk down the street without some strange man undressing me with his eyes or shouting rude and vulgar obscenities at me. Its also an extra treat to think that only my future husband will be able to enjoy my physical beauty. Although I am still easing into the traditional way of dressing, I encourage all muslimahs to embrace the sunnah way of dressing. We are all here to please Allah (swt) first and foremost!!
Below I have on a traditional black abaya and hijab. I added a few cute pins to my hijab and topped it off with my favorite Chanel bag. What do you guys think?
