Introducing Me

Hello everyone and welcome to my space, my little corner where i share my style, muse and work. Well its about 90% style and 10% everything else. My views on topics I find interesting ( hopefully you find them interesting too lol), on matters of the  deen (religion), on food (i love taking my taste buds on adventures), on things I've learnt, on life generally. Anything you can think of!!

Now, back to style. Ahhh, style. The word brings a sort of calm to my heart but at the same time makes it beat with a rhythm of excitement. I first discovered i had a thing for style when i was about 16. I became so picky with the clothes i wore, trying to make sure they were well coordinated because i didn't like the idea of just being "ordinary" and i liked to prove that i could still express my fashion sense while being modestly dressed. I am a firm believer in the "look good, feel good" adage, definitely not that looks are all that matter but they do have a part to play in our self confidence and the way we are perceived by others. I started experimenting with hijab (scarf)  styles I would just make up as i went along. Some turned out good, and some (looking back now) i wouldn't want to be caught dead in. My wardrobe has since gone through many stages of change as i tried to find my personal "style" (and so has my bank account). Do not get me wrong, i am NOT a shopaholic, though my friends seem to think i am. Lol, i presume this is exactly what a shopaholic would say. Oh well, perhaps its just time to get a new set of friends! Problem solved! (Sorry girls). I am not here to present a blueprint on how to dress or how to be, but rather to express my personal take on modest fashion and creativity while hopefully drawing out the creative genius in you.

Without further ado i would like to invite you to share my passion with me, come along on my journey to becoming a stylist.
