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

Hijabs ‘R’ Us

Hello my lovelies, Have you ever had difficulties finding the right hijab in the UK? Have you ever had the experience of searching and searching and finally resorted to asking friends from overseas to bring back a sample when they visit you, or paying an exorbitant amount of money on postage fees because you bought a piece from across the world? Well, that was a normal problem for me growing up… there just wasn’t much options in Edinburgh – none that really catered to my style, anyway. Speaking with my... Read More

Ramadan – The Epitome of Modesty.

Soon, (actually by this Saturday), you might start seeing your Muslim friends at work or neighbors doing that annual ‘fasting’ thing that they do, that you’ve heard about a little over the years, but didn’t think too much of it or might have been too shy to ask, just in case you might come off as ignorant.

More and more, the media is showcasing female role models who bring modesty into their modern lifestyle, showing that ladies can be confident and look fantastic while still upholding modest values. Modesty is creeping up through the cracks... Read More

Classy & Modest She keeps things neat, trim, unfussy, flowing and user adaptable. Just look at the classic flow of this black and white striped long skirt. Easy to move about in, goes below the knees, and keeping it classy at the same... Read More

We as a Nation – “We Will Never be Cowed”

We as a Nation – “We Will Never be Cowed” My city was under threat. A beautiful day was marred with the Westminster Attack. This was not an attack on just one person, it’s an attack on humanity itself. It affected all of us. I was born in this city, I live in this city, I love this city. It’s mine, it’s ours. Any sort of terror and chaos can never ever be in the name of religion. Anyone claiming to do so is merely using the purity of faith... Read More
