Ramadan Fast Bands Compliment Any Outfit

Hey everyone, so if you've noticed I've been wearing a white band in my last two outfit posts and I wanted to share what it was. Here is a picture of the new "fast band" I recently got. They say "Revive, Reconnect, Rejoice, Ramadan." I don't normally wear the different rubber bracelets that become so popular but this is a great message and we should support those behind it and spread the word!
Please check out their website here: Fast Bands

Navy Blue Vintage Necklace

Hey hey, Insha'Allah (God Willing) you all are having a great day and Ramadan thus far! I have been studying every day, per usual, but I try to take some quick shots of my outfit. I totally forgot about this necklace I got over christmas as a gift from a relative in Iran. It's a very unique vintage style statement necklace which I fell in love with because it makes me think of how fashion is always coming back from previous trends. I kept the outfit simple with a blue shirt to match with a long black tank underneath and black skinny jeans. I spiced it up with cheeta print flats!

Top: Forever 21
Hijab, tank & black skinny jeans: H&M
Watch: Men's Omega
Flats: Target
Necklace: Iran

OOTD: Hot Pink and Black

Hey all! Here is my outfit from today, just another day of studying!
Pants: H&M
Button up & Sandals: Forever 21
Hijab: Target
Watch: Michael Kors

I also wanted to do a post on my eyebrows and eyeliner. I fill in my eyebrows with powder that I got at the eyebrow threading stand at the mall. I apply the powder with an angled brush and I love this powder because it's not harsh and it looks natural. Also, I've been using this NYX super skinny eyeliner pen from Ulta. I absolutely love it because its easy to apply and it's good for a simple look any day.

"Fencer With Headscarf Is a Cut Above the Rest"

"I'd love for other minority women and religious minorities [in the U.S.] to believe they can excel in something outside the norm—not just sports, anything where they're breaking the barrier," she said, "and not be deterred by what the image is just because they fall outside that box."
               -Ibtihaj Muhammad

If this isn't just the perfect quote for inspiration, motivation and dedication to attain any dream you currently wish to attain, then I don't know what is. As I sit and study for my first CPA exam coming up on Friday morning Insha'Allah (God willing), I take a break to check my email and read this article my brother emailed me. If it wasn't the most perfect timing in the world, I don't know what else could have motivated me to continue studying into the wee hours of the night. Every person has their own struggle, their own goals, their own dreams, and each and every person also has downtime where they are feeling defeated, discouraged or unsure. This article is a great reminder to keep moving forward to attain your goals. I'll keep this short, so I can get back to studying, but please take the time to read this article because it truly is inspirational to all women.

So here are some of my favorite bags and tops I'm looking at right now. I don't have time to go shopping now, so I've just been online window shopping as a study break!

Classic Lace

Hey everyone, sorry for being so inconsistent with posting, as mentioned before I'm busy studying and barely have time to do anything else! This past weekend, two of my good friends got married and had a long weekend of festivities. Here are some pictures of what I wore. Lace is one of my favorite things in the world if you haven't realized it by now, so here I wore a lace dress. My makeup was done by the lovely Riham. 

My best friend Zainab and I. MashAllah she's such a beautiful person inside and out.
