Salaams! Today I received a bunch of cool stuff in the mail,alhamdullilah! My order from starscarves arrived and they are officially my favorite place to order from! Its free shipping and its so fast,I ordered some scarves thursday evening and I received them this afternoon. I ordered 5 new hijabs! A yellow,red,turquoise, and grey pashmina and and a super cute navy,white,grey, and turquoise square hijab. I also order so colored push pens, they are so cute. Also, I received my Mastering Arabic book with 2 audio cd's. Alhadullilah! The book looks so cool and it teaches you everything and you use it with the cd's. The cool thing is it teaches you how to speak and write arabic,so I plan on getting through this book thoroughly and before ramadan begins in august..seems soon right?? So I really like the look of the pashmina scarf, they are both cute and stylish and functional and I have mastered the oblong shayla which is by far my favorite style but sometimes the scarfs I love only come in square and I cant wear this style right for some reason. I mean I can physically wear it but I dont really like how it looks on me. I have a few really cool scarves but they are square hijabs and 100% and I hate the way it lays around my face. First off, I am a little self conscious with hijab all together because I feel like I have a fat face( yes and I had'nt noticed till I wore hijab.. I suppose its been fat.LOL ) So on top of having a fat, face and being rather fair-skinned sometimes I feel like my face looks like a fat marshmallow. This may be a bit dramatic but thats why I like my scarf tied secure around my face. However,with these fancy shmancy polyester hijabs I end up looking ridiculus and I wanted to find a picture of a hijabi that looks like it,but ridiculing others isnt my style. So you just have to use your imagine. No matter how many pins I use I cant get the darn thing to lay right but I am a perfectionist so I will keep at it and let you know how it turns out. In the meantime, any tips are well appreciated!
