Here are a couple of pics that I created from apps. I used Instagram and Pic Stitch.

Deets: Hijab: Pearl Daisy Drape scarf
Top/Dress: Simply Be
Ring: The Souq

Deets: Coat from Women Within

Hijab: Islamic Place (Philly)

I plan to be using the Instagram app in the future for different aspects of O.O.T.D photos. I mean '30hijabs N 30days' is a DAY away!!

Don't forget to check out the RULES and send in your registration videos asap. Here is a link to the FB Fan page.

What's on your face.

Salaams and Salutations Ladies,

I pray you all are busy planning out your outfits and hijabs for the '30hijabzN30dayz' challenge. I am going this weekend to pick out the make up to go with the donated prizes.

I wanted to focus today on skincare. Fashion and modesty are good points but we must remember to take care of our skin. Its what everyone sees 1st, hijabi or not. Below is a video from Silver Lip Beauty. She has a blog and a YouTube channel.

I am currently using the following products:
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream
Embryolisse Lait-Cream Concentrate

I also picked up Philosophy face wash and Dermalogica .

What do you use on your face?
