Collaboration with Westfield Liverpool

Hi all,
Now that Eid is around the corner, I have been having a think of what I want to wear to celebrate this special occasion. Looking back at all my past outfits, I have come to realise that every Eid, the girly side of me comes out!

(By girly I mean a dress that I can twirl in; something that makes me feel like I’m a princess dancing in a ballroom… a girl can dream)

With that in mind, I decided to find the perfect maxi dress, that I can wear not only for a special occasion like Eid, but also wear on a casual basis. Thankfully Westfield Liverpool has me covered this Eid, with a wide range of stores, I’m bound to find that gorgeous piece that I need in my life!

Here are my Top 3 Tips to Eid Dressing:

1. Have an idea of what you want to wear.

For example “I want a nice maxi dress that’s not too figure hugging”. So now your mind is set on a maxi dress, I guarantee that all you’ll be seeing are maxi dresses! It’s also important to ask “can I wear this outfit again?
”.

2. Go into a store you have never been in.  

You’ll be quite surprised by what you find - when I was looking for what to wear, I walked into Universal Store and there was one dress I couldn’t take my eyes off! I went to a few stores but my heart was already set on that dress, so I had to get it.


3. You need to be comfortable - 

Is your outfit going to survive all day?

I’m not sure what everyone does on Eid but I know that I visit about 7 or 8 houses in one day after our Eid Prayer, so I always look for material that is comfy to wear (which means that after the 6th plate of food I still have space to move around)!





Instead of buckling it, try tying a knot. So if you see somewhere wearing the same thing, at least you know yours has better detailing (it's all about the details)



 You know its going to be cold in the early mornings on Eid, so experiment with different materials, i chose to wear a beanie that had some fine details, if i do say so myself!

Westfield Liverpool Eid Challenge

Hi All,
I hope you're doing well, especially the ones fasting! Thankfully in Australia its only a quick 11hrs. (lol)
Recently I got to work with one of my local Westfield centres, Westfield Liverpool (NSW) and I forgot how amazing it was!! A lot of new stores have opened recently and it looks sooo pretty. With
all the new stores, I can pretty much find everything under one roof for my family and I!

They gave me a "Family Eid Styling Challenge" and as you know I'm always up for a challenge! I got to work with seven very different stores. Before heading to Westfield Liverpool, I made sure I had a theme going, which as you will see, is the colour Navy. I think Navy is such a winter colour - it's dark but vibrant at the same time and because Eid is in Winter, I thought it was definitely meant to be!

Ok, everyone buckle up... I'm about to take you on a styling adventure!

Lets Start with my youngest.

Winkwood

Salams All,

Hiiii How are you all? I hope you are all in good health. So you know how much i love sunglasses... if you don't, then where have you been? Recently i got sent a beauty, she's gorgeous! If i do say so myself. She's from a company called Winkwood who are based in Melbourne.


The sunglasses i got, she's called Dessert Rose. She is 
carved from a durable redwood with a sandy white finish and the detail on her is, what makes it stand out! They've carved little flower on the lower frame. Talk about details!! The lenses are pink/orange hybrid UV-400,they are tested to reflect or filter out 99% of UVA and UVB light, with wavelengths up to 400 nano metres (UV400) which provides you with maximum protection, when you start to feel the heat. She also comes with a cleaning cloth and a gorgeous matching carved wooden storage box


I recently went to Melbourne for an event and thought, this would be a great opportunity to wear these sunglasses (because everyone is so trendy there). As i put them on, i thought i'd be seeing pink & orange people because of the lens. LOL was i wrong. It was clear as day! It's amazingly light weight and feels like your not wearing anything at all, until you walk into somewhere dark and ask "WHY IS IT SO DARK IN HERE?" (true story). And want to hear another amazing fact about these sunnies...They can float on water! So if you ever go to the beach and that wave hits you out of nowhere and knock the glasses right off your face, you won't need to worry!


So how would you like to win a pair of sunglasses from WINKWOOD? find out how after the pictures!

You have until 3rd MAY 2017 at 12pm. GOOD LUCK!

Wardah Fashion Journey

Salams All,

On Sunday the 19th of March, I got invited to attend a very special event in Melbourne hosted by Wardah and Amara. What a fun event it was! We all got to meet two famous Indonesian designers, Dian Pelangi and Barli Asmara, alongside our very own Stephanie Kurlow, 'The first hijabi ballerina'.

The event took place at a restaurant called 'The Botanical' in the 'Archer Room', what a STUNNING room it was! The day started with us all greeting each other, some new and some we already knew, even some from Sydney! Then we all sat around this gorgeous table that was covered in flowers, while canap├ęs were being served (YUM!). Then Dian and Barli talked about styling and how to dress modest we also got a hijab tutorial by Dian, she showed us how to do a turban style, also reminding us to wear a ninja (hair and neck cover) under. We also got a hijab tutorial by the Haya Atelier, Reyyan showed us how to do the cross over look and how to contour (using our hijab LOL love it)

After that, lunch was served (thinking about what I got is making me hungry! LOL).We either got gnocchi, sauce vierge, shaved fennel & green olives OR roast hapuka, olive crumb, cauliflower, caper beurre blanc (which I got YUMMMM!). We also got triple cooked chips and cos lettuce & mustard dressing to share! (someone feed me!).

When everyone finished eating and the table was cleared, we got to our next part of the event and it was to learn how to make a fascinator using fresh flowers. Our teacher was Puteri, who is a floral designer for Fleurations, and Ella, who was her helper for the day! This part was very fun, stressful (LOL), but mostly fun! We learnt how to use the parafilm (green tape) properly (...pull and twist, pull and twist) and also how to use the wire on different flowers (can't remember for the life of me what they were called...hook?? Puterrriiii help LOL). Some of the girls were just naturally good at making them (coughs *Subhi and Reyyan*). As for me, I knew what I wanted but my brain would not let it happen. Maybe because I'm not a girly girl? So while everyone made fascinators, I turned mine into a corsage (even Barli agreed that it shouldn't be on my head LOL).

After that, we all took photos and mingled while dessert and hot beverages were served! (dammn that dessert was good! I'm crying! You will see what I mean soon in the pic below.)
All in all it was a gorgeous day and I can't wait till the Sydney one (iA).
I also had the pleasure of interviewing some of the designers and will be posting it soon in a new part of my blog called "1 min (maybe 3) with..." so be on the lookout for them!

Would you be interested to have something like this here in Sydney? Comment or DM me to let me know and I shall make it happen!
