Hijabi at the beach

I have always had a love/ hate relationship with the beach. I have always enjoyed the sounds and sights of the waves crashing into the shore. The feel of the sand between my toes. I always marvel at the endlessness of it all and reminds me of how Allah swt knows how many sea creatures live in there. How even if there were multiple … Read More Hijabi at the beach

Hijabs and fascinators

I recently attended a tea party to honor a friend that has joined the 40 plus club. It was a beautiful afternoon full of laughter and joy and celebration. The birthday girl had requested us to dress up in hats and gloves and we obliged. I did some research and learned a bit more about fascinators. Ever since Princess Kate and now Megan Markle … Read More Hijabs and fascinators

I recently traveled to Detroit for a family wedding. Each time I have been to Detroit, I had never been able to venture to the city center. I am so glad I was able to explore a bit of this diverse and up and coming city. I had asked for recommendations for a brunch spot and was able to visit the Dime Store. There … Read More Travel diaries- weekend in Detroit

Travel diaries- tea gardens in Bangladesh and quick stop in Doha

We went on a very quick tour to Bangladesh to show our children where their grandparents grew up. We literally were there for five days but packed in a whole lot of stuff! My personal favorite was our stay at Dusai. It is a small resort near the famous tea gardens. I wore a kimono that was very similar to the sold out Zara … Read More Travel diaries- tea gardens in Bangladesh and quick stop in Doha

Travel diaries: what I wore in Morocco 

We were able to visit Morocco recently, a long held dream of mine. The history, food, people, breathtaking architecture and nice climate made it a perfect country to visit.

April was a great time to visit, mild climate and tons of fresh oranges and … Read More Travel diaries: what I wore in Morocco

We recently had our closet redone which gave me a chance to do a much needed purge. It also got me thinking about what pieces I wanted to keep and has made me much more mindful about what pieces I wanted to add. I have started to look for pieces with more versatility and can work with what I already own. I came across … Read More Wearing one item many ways

Winter Whites

That old fashion rule of no white after labor day is just that, an old fashioned rule. This rule has been more common among the older generation and among people in the Southern states. There are ways to wear white that can be trendy and also appropriate for cooler winter weather. Layering and using heavier or richer fabrics are key to pulling off this … Read More Winter Whites
