Accessorizing Your Hijab: (part 4) Straight Pins, kicking it old school

Hey Girls and Gents!

Are we really already on part 4 of the (accessorizing your hijab series?) that’s crazy, time really does fly!

Anyway if your just tuning in to theses post, I’ll just tell you a little bit about them; my younger sister and I are doing a series on how to add a little bit of extra style to your hijab, with all kinds of cool, cute things, that will breathe new life into your old, to small or boring hijabs, that we all sometimes forget about.

Each of our post is on different way to style or accessorize your hijab, so check out our older post on both of our blogs here’s my sisters Link

Since we… or should I say I, sometimes forget about the simpler things in life or… just the simpler ways to style my hijab lol, today I’ll be talking about  the  more simpler types of pins, that is a much as a statement as the more bolder ones I like wear.

There are tons and tons of straight pins that most of us hijabis have or seen, and I’m going to show you a few that I find myself enjoying,  and for you more realistic muslimahs out there, hopefully you’ll enjoy this post.

Girls Guild for New Years Eve, How to Enjoy New Years

Hey Girls and Gents!

I’m going to let you know, what I think are a Girls Essential items, that you’re going to need for this year’s New Years Eve

If you’re going out this New Years Eve:

One thing’s for sure, you don’t want to have to lug around a big purse, and keeping an eye out from losing it, when you’re out and about this New Years eve.

So keep in mind that wearing a small slang over the shoulder/cross body purse is best. They have some really cute ones for cheap, also if you’re planning on going to a big party, try finding a glittery that’s going to stand out, as its going to be easy to find in a dark room, with little light. (if it somehow gets parted for you, let’s hope that doesn’t happen, finger crossed) another reason why you want a cheap one is that you won’t be to upset if sometime gets on it or if you loss it.

here are some of the ones i found that are really cute, from Rainbows

Look of the Day (LOTD) NEW YEARS EVE '2012 #1 Silvery Gold

Hey Girls and Gents!

Since 2013 is just around the river-bend lol, I wanted to do a fast and fun eye look, that you could do with gold or silver and still stay in style with the New Years theme, and match pretty much any outfit you might decide to wear this year.

 I used gold in these pictures, but sliver would look just as fab, just place the sliver wear the gold is and add gold wear the sliver is, easy as pie!

Anyway hope you have a Safe, Fun, and happy New Years!

My Favorite Winter/Holiday Lipsticks

Hey Girls & Gents!

I’m going to be sharing with y’all four of my favorite winter/holiday lipsticks that I pretty much wear all throughout the cold season. Warning lots of Red lol

Now I’m sure y’all know that I love me some lipstick, but one thing you guys may or may not know about me, is that I don’t really like buying high-end lipstick (but I do have a few still). Shocking right! But before I get into that let me tell you why I love lipstick so much.

It’s easy and adds a polish look without too much work, When I’m in a rush, I like to powder my face, and grab my favorite lipstick of the moment and toss on some big ‘ol trusted sunglasses, and I’m good to go lol

Lazy Girl Post: DIY Mixing Medium

Hey Girls and Gents!

Another easy post for y'all, that will help you save some cash.
Empty Bottles, these are 1oz ones from the Dollar store 3/$1 (Note: Theses little guys come in handy a lot, so if you see them for cheap, GET 'EM!, doesn't really matter if it's a spray, drip, or pump tip. mostly likely your going to be needing one of the 3 style tops)

Glycerin no more then $4  (I always but mines from Rite Aid)

Water (Bottled or filtered water is best, as it's the cleanest)

Mix one part Glycerin and 3 parts Water & Shake!!! yup that's it. 

FYI: Shake before each use, also remember to replace your mixing medium around every two weeks (I date mine, so I never forget). so it stays fresh and clean; it is being used on your Face.

Note: with that being said, it's best you only mix what your going to use in that time, so you don't waste product.

Peace n' Love<3

Victoria's Secret Simmer Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Hey Girls and Gents!

so the other day I went to the mall to pick up a few things I needed, and one of my stops was VS, after I picked up the items that I went there for, like always; I started browsing the store and some of their eyeshadows caught my eye.

now I've never bought any of their eyeshadows, so I didn't really know if they were any good or wroth buying, so after swatching a few of them, I thought why not buy one, and see if I like them.

so that brings me to this post, and if your like me and never tried their eyeshaodws hopefully this helps.

Hijab/Scarf Storage Ideas, & How I Store Mines

Hey Girls & Gents!

In this post I’m going to give y’all some ideas on how to store your Hijabs or Scarves .

As a hijabie I have the problem of having one to many hijabs, if you’re a hijabie you know what I’m talking about lol, hopefully this will give you some ideas, and help you out some, and if you have any storage ideas let me know.

I find that they all work great, depending on what your looking for and how many hijabs you have and what type of space you have, also I’ll show you how I organize mine. 

Cutain Rod, with Hangers
this is a picture of how i store mine, all the same colors go onto the same hanger , it makes it easier when i'm putting together an outfit, i just grab the color hanger i want and choices from there

this is how i twist and knot the  hijabs when placing them on to the hangers
Butterfly Scarf Hanger (Bed, Bath & Beyond)
I find these are very cute, but not so good to hold lots of scarfs on, best used for neck scrafs

A regular hanger with Shower Hooks (an easy DIY, anyone can do, use wood, not plastic hangers)
this is one of my favorite ones, because you can just hang it, in your closet

How to Apply Eyeliner 101

Hey everyone!

This post is going to be about how to apply basic eyeliner, I’m going to try and keep it as easy as possible, with some easy step by step tips.

v  First I like to tilt my chin slightly up facing a mirror, at this point you should be able to see down your nose; this will make it easier for you to see your whole eyelid for applying eyeliner.
v  Then I like to gently hold my eyelid upward at an angle. I almost always start at my inner corner making small  connected lines across my lid placing the liner as close to the lashline as possible, so that you won’t have any skin between the liner and lashes.
v  If you’re using a pencil liner and it’s freshly sharpen, roll the tip between your fingers to soften the tip so you won’t have a hard line (unless that’s what you’re aiming for, go for it)
v  If your using liquid liner, apply it using small feathering strokes, start at the inner corner once again and working your way out
v  If you find the line is still too hard for you or if you just want the liner to last longer apply a similar colored eyeshadow over the liner to soften the look.

Ø  Note: this method can be used for any type of eyeliner, and with it being so many colors out there, you can really go crazy with just some eyeliner.

Hopefully these tips help you some, let me know by commenting or email me!

Peace n' Love<3

How to Apply Mascara 101

OMG this is my 100th post on Blogger!!!

Hey Girls & Gents!

This post is all about Mascara, I’m going to quickly go through a few key points of things I think everyone who wears mascara should know, also if you think I forgot anything or have any tips you want to share please comments below… okay let’s get this going!

Colored Mascara: 

Now black mascara works wonderfully for almost about anyone, don’t get me wrong, but I feel that a lot of people forget about the other equally wonderful colors out there like… Black/Brown, Blue, Purple mascaras, and thinks it’s always good to mix it up every now and again.

v  For the Light Skinned Blondes girls/gents out there; black/brown mascara is perfect for the daytime and will give your eyes a very nice awake fresh look, but don’t throw out your black mascara tubes! Just save it for the nighttime and apply it when you’re done with that sexy smoky eye you've been working on!
v  For my Blue Eyed babies out there, Blue mascara will brighten your eyes and stop ‘em dead!
v  And for my Brown Eyed vixens’ out there, Purple mascara is really going to make our eyes pop!
v  Don’t worry I didn’t forget about my Green Eyed sweethearts’ out there,  Black & Plum mascara are going to make everyone envious of your eyes!
