Miss M Halal Bakeries

Hello my lovelies, With the cold slowly but surely planting itself all around London, I have begun to drink copious amounts of coffee and tea to keep myself warm and cozy. Lately though, I’ve been feeling a bit peckish and I find myself wanting a little something more with my drinks. A couple of days ago, a friend of mine invited me out for afternoon tea and that was when realization hit me – cake! That was the missing component to my coffee and tea coziness! I think this is...

Miss M Ascia

Hello my lovelies, It’s the start of a new month, which means … a new Modest Crush!   It thrills me to introduce Ascia Al Faraj as our November Modest Crush, better known to most of us as Ascia AKF. One of the giants in the modest fashion industry, she has worked with some of the biggest names in the world of high fashion: Ralph Lauren, Dior, and Chanel to name just a few. But it is her recent collaboration with Italian online fashion retailer Net-a-Porter that really struck a... Read More

Miss M’s Dina Tokio

Hello my lovelies! If you’ve been scrolling through past blogposts or even through Modestrove’s Instagram account, you might have noticed a certain name popping up every now and again: Dina Tokio, Modestrove’s style icon of the month. As I was scrolling through her Instagram feed (I’m especially digging the bold colours of her recent autumnal outfits!), I realized just how much the UK modest fashion movement had been inspired by Dina Tokio – how I, myself, had been inspired by her. I had felt supported in my lifestyle choices through... Read More

Miss M Hijab-friendly Halloween Costumes

Hello my lovelies! We can say a lot of things about October, but really, there’s only one thing on everone’s minds: Halloween! As I walk by coffee shops and store windows I can already see the Halloween cheer – pumpkins, skeletons, paper cut-outs of bats and cobwebs. I catch people talking about plans for their Halloween costumes and I, myself, have begun scrolling through Pinterest to see what I would like to be on the 31st of October. I have realized, however, that ideas for hijab-friendly Halloween costumes are hard... Read More

Miss M Styling Theselina

Hello my lovelies, I’ve received a few questions from readers about styling our Modestrove products. Some of our Modest babes were just beginning to play around with accessories, finding out how to mix and match colours, while our more Seasoned Modest Women were interested in how I would personally style a particular Modestrove item. After sitting on this idea for a while, I’ve decided to show you how I would dress up one of my favourite items – The Selina handbag.   The first style is a more casual, daytime... Read More

Our Top 6 Hijab Organisation Tips

Have you ever found yourself in this situation? You have a special event coming up — perhaps a big day at work, or a party you’ve been looking forward to for months? You’ve put together the perfect outfit and have just the hijab in mind to complete your look, but, as you’re getting ready, you realise with horror that it’s nowhere to be found! Your headscarves are all thrown together in a drawer; they’re unorganised, creased, and they take forever to sift through. The stress is building and before you... Read More

Miss M Coffee Recommendations

Hello my lovelies! October kicked off with International Coffee Day and I couldn’t be happier to find an excuse to drink lots of coffee. Unfortunately, that day fell on the 1st of October, a Sunday, and this was to be spent relaxing… which is difficult in a hyper-caffeinated state. Still, I wanted to celebrate the wonderfulness of coffee somehow and I decided that instead of drinking five coffees in one day, I would drink one coffee each day for the next work week. However, as I was sitting down to... Read More

Miss M Roald Dahl

Hello my lovelies, September is here! Time to break out your woolly cardigans and curl up with your favourite book while drinking a cuppa. When I was in Edinburgh for Eid, I happened to find some of my old childhood books and one of my favourites jumped out at me: Matilda. However, I was too busy entertaining friends that I didn’t really have the time to read it and so I brought it back to London with me. And here I am – back in my flat, all comfy and... Read More
