The Creative Hijab

Salaams and Salutations Beauties,

I'm on VACAY but is STILL coming up with great ideas for Beautiful UMMAH. Again, Ramadan Mubarak!! I pray everyone's Ramadan is going well. Don't forget about the Hijabi Project 2010 contest. Get your entries in by EID, iA, for the FAB LUSH gift card!!

Sooo (back to this post), have you ever been to a wedding and seen the most CREATIVE hijabs styles? Either on the bride herself or on in the wedding or attending the wedding and thought: 'I can't do that for EVERYDAY but its soooo pretty'?? Well you CAN. I've been hanging around YouTube lately and found ALL TYPES of hijabs tutorials, Hijabs of the day, hijab store hauls...OMG!!

So I had added Pearl Daisy a couple of weeks ago on FB, not really getting into what she had. OMG Pearl Daisy, operated by Sister Amena, has lots of great hijabs for layering and light ones for the summer. On her YouTube page Sister Amena gives you ALL type of hijab tutorials. She even explains what a 'Hoojab' is? What IS a Hoojab?



Note: I have not ordered from Pearl Daisy as of yet. But I am impressed with all the broaches and different hijabs they carry. Can't wait to order though.**

There is also TheChicMaya who runs Hijabonlinestore[dot]com.
All the fave among hijabi's on FB and on YouTube.

Urban Decay Naked Pallet

Ramadan Mubarak Beauties!

I am doing a quick review of the Naked Pallet by Urban Decay.

At first sight I wasn't impressed with the colors. As always the presentation of Urban Decay Products is awesome, so this is not any different. I have to say the only part of this pallet that is special is the shimmer color selections. THOSE ARE THE HOTTNESS!!! They lay on nicely and blend well with EVERYTHING!!!

Swatches are to come...

~Ramadan Mubarak~

Salaams and Salutations Beauties,

For all my Muslimah Fashion and Beauti-nistas (is THAT a word), Ramadan Mubarak to you and your family. Insha~allah your good deeds, fasts and rememberance will be accepted.

Ramadan is NOT only 30 days without food but the 'average' muslim should be working on being without bad speach (rude/nasty), wondering eyes and more focus on worshiping our lord.

For those beauties who AREN'T Muslim....its a time to 'get to know more about Islam'. Find a Muslim...dial a Muslim...*I actually KNOW someone who did*. Masjids (place of worship) are open to you and there is always LOTS of food. Enjoy.

B Beautiful
