Firstly, you may use any rectangular shawl of you choice. Personally, I prefer maxi shawls as they give me the full coverage I need. Have one side short and the other long and pin it with a brooch or any pins that you're most comfortable with.

Next, take the end fabric from the back and bring it up as shown. I did this step as I normally wear the viscose plain shawls. The shawls can get quite sheer. This step helps to layer up a little more. 

Take the shorter side and place it across your chest hiding it below the longer side. This will help to cover your neck area if your shawls get quite sheer but you may skip this step and leave it as it is if your shawl isn't sheer.

Have the longer side and start wrapping it around your head. 

While wrapping, I love to give it more pleads to have a drape effect once finish.

Pin it at the side to secure the wraps and to have more stability.

Voila! Here's my daily hijab style and all you need are 2 pins! For extra steps, I actually pin the shawls on both my shoulders so that the shawls will stay in place! 

Here's a new website name and a new layout! I am so excited to have my own domain now and I love my new layout! Hope you guys like them as much as I do! =)

Hope this hijab pictorial is useful for you and comment here should you need any more clarifications alright! I'm sorry for not having a video for the hijab tutorial as I'm still quite shy! Probably in the future, insya'allah! Tell me how it goes for you when you try this hijab style! 

Much Love,

Hope your weekends was great! I am pretty busy with school assignments now and yesterday was a day to take a break. It felt so good. So, fiancĂ© proposed to take a breather at Keppel Bay. I truly love the scenery there and it revived the days where we catch the sunset during our first few dates. 

That aside, I feel really comfortable with my outfit yesterday despite these days being extra humid. My parka was a steal! I got it online some time back and was a little skeptical to wear it out on a humid day. It didn't fail on me and I felt comfortable throughout my day. Can't wait to explore more places for future posts. 

Now, another hectic week ahead for me as its submissions week! Have a great week ahead everyone!

Special Appearance

 Here's the man behind the camera. I love how he supports things that I do and for the past week, he have been helping me with my assignments too! He just recovered from a bike accident and I am truly grateful he is all fine. Alhamdulillah. Reason why he's on my post today, I just wanna wish, Happy 56th, FiancĂ©. <3

Much Love,

Outfit : Poplook Kerria | Shawl : Geylang Market | Bag : Ted Barker | Wedge : ASOS | Watch : Marc By Marc Jacobs

Bought this pretty outfit for Eid 2013. I fall in love with how simple and hassle free the outfit is. The lace design enhanced the whole look. I rarely wear anything that's purple (I don't know why) but this outfit is definitely an exception. As age catches up on me, I can now wear my Eid outfits for weddings and even other functions. That will really save me from my mum's rejection on pretty outfits as according to her, I always wear my Eid outfit only once a year. Opps! =D 

Enjoy your weekend everyone! 

Much Love,

I was sent this pretty handchain by Polesapartsisters! These handchains are handmade by two sisters and I love how simple yet elegant the handchains are. The handchain that I'm wearing is called Lovely Orange which you can find from their second collection. I am truly excited when I was given this opportunity as while I was in Aussie, while browsing my instagram, I chance upon their first collection and I fell in love with Golden Heart from their first collection!(which will be worn for my next outfit, Insya'allah) Both collections of theirs have different touch of class and they are in the midst of launching more collections!

Best part of all, these handchains are really affordable as they all fall below the range of $20 and as cheap as $12.90! Also, you can enjoy a further 5% off if you quote "ZAHRA" while checking out your purchase! It's a great deal! 

For future enquiries, Polesapartsisters are open for customisation. Stay tune alright! Have a lovely Sunday readers! Do drop any comments should you have any feedback for me. Follow me on instagram too @zahraaaJ if you haven't for a more frequent updates.

Street Style

Can't help to just blend in the street styles of Brisbane's city. In some shades of pink that spells me. Casual and simple. Hope you had a great weekend and let's welcome September with open arms!
