Blush pink – 2 words that make me really happy. Lately, I’ve been finding myself drawn to anything in this (or close to) this colour and so, I decided to dedicate this OOTD post, specifically to the shade that makes me smile.
So, I’m back with another collab featuring My Online Souk.
The lovely ladies over at MOS (find their website here) sent me another Diamanté-branded scarf to style – this time, it was black jersey scarf with gold detailing – which is obvi perfect for a wedding or an occasion that requires a lil’ bit of fancy.
Even though I’ve never styled/wore a jersey scarf as a turban before, I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to take on the challenge and make it work!
Before we get right into the ootd post, I would just like to clarify something – it is true – I am still very much alive, even though my blog has been dead for a quite a while.
I could bore you guys with deets of why I was basically MIA, but let’s be honest – that doesn’t really matter now. Just know, that this time I’m here to stay and going to be extremely disciplined when it comes to Veiled Beauty – I’ve finally decided to put my interests/passions/things that make me happy before anything else and so you can be sure that I will no longer be neglecting VB. (I’ve even got an Abaya giveaway (sponsored by Meem Abaya collection) in the process – it’s long overdue but it’s finally going to happen, so look out for that!)
Now on to the actual post…
If you’ve been active on Instagram lately, you are bound to have come across The Hayaa Box – if not, let me fill you in!
The Hayaa Box is South Africa’s first subscription box for Muslim women. Each month, you can expect a beautifully wrapped box containing one of THB’s signature maxi scarves (in a gorgeous colour, of course!), at least one sample-sized (international or local) makeup, skincare or lifestyle product and to top it all of, matching hijab accessories to complement the scarf of the month.
Abayas are not really my forte. I don’t wear them often nor do I own many but the Kimono Wrap Abaya from Damasq has definitely made me rethink abayas.
Effortless, modest, fashionable and beautiful is how I would define the Kimono Wrap Abaya. It’s so simple and yet so elegant and you’re literally cannot go wrong with it.
As promised, I’ve got another OOTD post for you guys! This look is something that I’d usually wear when I go shopping, for coffee or just to chill somewhere – it’s relaxed but very put-together which is why it works so well.
I know what you’re thinking. It has been ages since I’ve uploaded an OOTD post (or any post for that matter) but in my defence whenever I attempted to do a shoot, either the weather, the lighting or the location just didn’t work for me. Also, I’ve been experiencing some MAJOR technical difficulties so even when I did capture the most perfect images, I was unable to upload! But fear not, all is okay now, so you can look forward to many more OOTD posts!
I recently realized that finding an item that is easy to wear, doesn’t require a lot of effort and that can be worn in many different ways is difficult but not impossible.
Before I started wearing a scarf full-time, I had hair that was thick, bouncy and full of volume, however, due to the constant downward pressure that my scarf applies to my scalp, I’m now left with hair that lacks volume and that is much thinner than before.
So, naturally, when Dove sent me their Oxygen Moisture Range to test out and review, I was really excited to see if it will make any difference to my hair whatsoever!
Congratulations Mishka Singh on your win!
Guess what? Yup! It’s time for another giveaway! The lovely guys over at TRESemmé have an amazing hamper worth over R350 to give away to one of you lucky readers!
If you’ve been following my blog since its inception in 2013, then you are definitely aware of the battle that I’ve been fighting in regard to my skin.
My skin is very much prone to breakouts and is so reactive that most products do not agree to it. During Ramadaan (June/July), my skin took a turn for the worse and I broke out on my forehead, cheeks, jawline and even on my chin – it was just total insanity.
I finally decided that it was time for a change and as fate may have it, I made that decision just a few days before I attended Dr Ridhwana Vawda + Dermaceutic’s Promo Day.
