Assalamualaikum ladies.

First of all, let me greet every one a Ramadhan Mubarak. How's fasting, so far? As for me, I am quite busy taking care of my mother. It is a huge test since I am the only one taking care of her 24/7. Please include my mother's recovery in your duas. Jazakillah.

They are so beautiful that you just want to wear them but unfortunately cannot because they show skin. However, we, hijabis, are so dang creative that we can hijabify just about everythaaang on the planet!

Wood watches by Jord

Flashback to two months ago when Paul of Jord Watches contacted me at my email, I thought, "ASDFGHJKL!!! Watches made of wood? Are you serious?" 


Even after I chose my watch for them to send, I had been stalking the website and ogling at the other items they have there. How can they make such masterpieces? I mean, look at the watches. They are so timely and fashionable. Like, can I have all of them? T_T 

On Going Viral

Assalamualaikum.

Yesterday, I was happily writing an article for Hijabi Mag when I decided to check my instagram account. To my shock, it was flooded with messages, mentions, tags, comments, new followers and so on. Upon reading them all, I was worried upon learning that somebody is using my photos for her/his advocacy instagram account.



I immediately reported the account to instagram. However, 19 hours afterwards, one photo of mine is still in that account. I can't believe that they have been using my photos for more than two months now.

My Jihad This Ramadhan

Assalamualaikum. 

June is here! Aside from being my favorite month, Ramadhan is also fast approaching! Alhamdulillah. If you could only tell my excitement, it is oozing. 


This year has been a great lesson to me and my mother. It brought a lot of trials that we have never thought of experiencing. Alhamdulillah, we are conquering them slowly by the Mercy of Allah SWT.

This Ramadhan, I am making a jihad, it is my own struggle to achieve betterment in my worship. In sha Allah. Ever since I started Hijabi Mag, it has given me a whole new outlook about life and reality. The truth is, I was living in a nutshell thinking that I should be great and I deserve better. Now, I am more into making myself better for the sake of Allah and all that surrounds me.


So, what are my jihad this Ramadhan 1436?

Frozen-Inspired Bridesmaid Dresses

Ever since the movie Frozen came out, there has been a lot of parties and events that used it as motif. Though famous for birthdays, why not turn yourself and your bridesmaids into Elsas or Anas on your wedding day?

In today's post, I compiled few dresses from Sherry London, an on-line shop based in London, UK that sells prom dressesbridesmaid dresses and homecoming dresses. It also offers custom-made services if you should prefer your own design. 

Their designs are really lovely and elegant. In fact, I fell in love with the dresses the first time I saw them. The simplicity in the dresses makes the person wearing it look even more beautiful.  They are manifestations that you don't need to have a lot going on to actually attract attention.

My Latest Project

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.

Assalamualaikum. 


It is with proud and glee that I share this wonderful news with everyone. As you may have noticed, I was quite on hiatus these passed days. I have been updating my social networks, though, that is to promote my latest project.

I have been contemplating on starting a project that would make a difference, with The Philippines as the primary target. Truth is, I already miss my publication days during university. Finally, one afternoon, I have decided. I will make an online modesty magazine for the Muslimahs and those people who prefer the modest living in the Philippines.

Tips to Run a Photoblog Successfully

If you are a photographer or just love sharing your clicks on social networking sites like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, you should consider having a photoblog too.



Photoblog helps in creating a custom portfolio on one’s photography work and ensures longevity.
If you are familiar with WordPress, you might know that it provides a platform for its users to manage their photoblog with ease. This even helps your blog grow in popularity.

However, WordPress is not the only site that offers the service. You can look for a number of other hosting service providers too and compare the features before you choose one.

Apart from this, there are a number of tips that can help you run a photoblog successfully. Some of the most important tips are noted below.

Top Reasons Why You Should Use Sunscreen Regularly

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. About 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed every year, and this number is increasing because of the increase in exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun.

Here are the top reasons why you need to wear sunscreen on your skin.

1. It shields you from harmful UV rays
There is a continuous ozone layer depletion that causes a high risk of exposure to harmful rays of the sun. Though you need the sun for your daily vitamin D dose, it does not mean that you should risk your health. Sunscreen blocks these harmful rays from the sun from penetrating your skin and causing disorders.

2. It prevents premature aging
Everyone loves a radiant, younger-looking skin, and this is the most important reason you need to use sunscreen. It prevents your skin from developing signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Studies show that people below the age of 55 who use sunscreen have 24 percent fewer chances of developing aging signs compared to non-sunscreen users.

A woman and her jewelry collection are a dedicated pair. When you're in doubt as to how to impress, delight or surprise the special woman in your life, a gift of jewelry is a tangible way to express your devotion and emotion. 

Timeless beauty
Every woman is unique. Her preferred wardrobe and accessory style is reflective of her personality and passions. You can begin a tradition that can last a lifetime when you begin giving jewelry for special occasion gifts or as an unexpected surprise at a time someone needs an emotional boost. Finding a source, such as LouiseDoggettAntiques.com, for the unique jewelry your special lady deserves gives you a consistent gift buying location to rely on anytime.



How to Wear Longer Drop Earrings

Drop earrings feature a unique design that combines elements of teardrop and hoop earrings. A small curved piece of metal slips inside your ear and secures the earring to your ear to keep it from slipping off. Tiny gems and stones added to that curved piece add some color and texture. When shopping for these earrings online or off, give some thought to how you'll wear these designs.

Job Hunting and Application Tips

Assalamu alaikum ladies.

Recently, I have been receiving couple of questions on my ask.fm account. One of the questions was about job application. Since it would be a lengthy discourse, I had to blog about it.


Reunited with the Best Girls in the World

"Everyone hears what you say. 
Friends listen to what you say. 
Best friends listen to what you don't say."
                                                - Unknown

Salam ladies,

This month, alhamdulillah, I and my three best friends were able to reunite after one year.

Hijrah, Jurfaida and Monina
The girls in the photo above are my soul sisters from three different sets of parents. We were a group for more than a decade already. Ma sha Allah. Ever since we've bid farewell to highschool, we had to take different paths - going to different universities. 

On ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur.

"We see well only with the heart."

Is it not a beautiful world if we only look beyond the imperfections of each us in our human nature? To love unconditionally is to accept each other's shortcomings. But before we can love another person, we must, first, learn to accept our own set of imperfections. When we do that, we learn to love ourselves and have courage in facing our daily struggles in life. After all, everyone of us is created lacking something. Only Allah, The Almighty, is perfect. 



What Do You Stand For?

Salam ladies,

I stand for clean and smoke-free air.

One of my pet peeves is smoke. I really don't like breathing it or even just smelling it from smokers' clothes. Aside from the foul odor, smoking can cause a lot of damages to everyone. This is why I stand for healthy lungs and body, both for smokers and second-hand smokers.


I have collaborated with http://standforinitiative.com to come up with an amazing project. This is a presale campaign for all amazing blog readers who have something to stand for.
