Mama took the cake for the number of opinions she had on this look [“what bone did you break?” “you look like a mummy” “I don’t like your shoes” “why are you wearing a bandage” etc etc etc!] but I kinda sorta loved it! I’ve been wanting to sport an overlay piece on top of a button down for a while but felt super weird and meh whenever I tried them on, not to mention uncomfortable and too layer-ish lol but woke up one morning and said meh. Just do it #nike #notsponsored . Tried an alternate turban look for this one, and totally felt uncomfortable and a tad weird at first [because of the overlay not the turban lol] but promise I embraced it! Thought I’d share and inspire even one of y’all to not give a rats bum and try something that might be outside of your comfort zone because life’s too short to not try new things isn’t it?!

The lovelies at Azha and I had a bit of a giveaway going for Eid for one lucky duck to win their entire Tahseen bangle collection. I received some beautiful necklaces from them a while back when they first started (the camel one is my fave!) so didn’t doubt the quality and beauty of these pieces at all! and dang son! What a neat concept and vision to bring to life! Each bangle represents the sound waves of the 3 Quls, the last three suras in the Quran, acting as a reminder of faith and protection from God. The Gold depicts sura Al-Ikhlas, Silver Al-Nass, and Rose Gold Al-Falaq. They’re made of stainless steel plated with 18k gold, and come in one size [adjustable]. I think they’d make such a thoughtful gift for loved ones in your life, for a graduation or any occasion really because remembrance of God’s presence is a constant init?! Be sure to check them out online here and follow them on instagram for updates and future giveaways!
How beautiful is this marbled liliaiya piece?! I’ve been in love with their designs for ages and have kinda sorta rinsed a piece from a previous collection, so was super excited when this came through the post! It’s one of those pieces which exude a unique chicness and can be dressed both up or down; I’m thinking skinny denim, red trousers, even a foil print skirt?! Definitely check them out here and find them on instagram (@liliaiyastudio) Thank you lovelies! xoxo
