Product Review: Amirah Couture Safari Hijab!!!

Salam folks! 

Let me take you a little step into my Hijab buying habits....I rarely buy hijabs from online Islamic retailers. If I do buy them online, it is always from nordstroms because they have exceptional quality (though a bit pricey) and they always display scarf measurements, which sometimes Islamic companies fail to do.

Ridiculous right?

Well, not too long ago I found a little gem on Facebook known as Amirah Couture. The first thing I noticed about their Facebook page, is that not only does it feature beautiful photography, but they sold hijabs and abayat inspired by the Arab spring countries such as Palestine, Syria, and Egypt! 

Check out their Freedom Collection! The Proceeds from their items go directly as sadaqa for the countries they represent! So creative mashallah!

Being sick and recovering to some good news inshallah

Salam folks! I can't even remember the dates but a few weeks back I abruptly fell ill. It happened a few days after I took sou sou to the doctor's office.

Go figure...

It is amazing how I haven't gotten sick in a while, but as soon as I went to the pediatricians office and sit for an hour around snotty infected children, I caught something.

You are AmaZing
