Thoughts: Swapping Gifts With Dalillah Ismail

Guysssss!! I literally had to type so quick for this post the be up today! Why? Cause I was so excited to share with you what arrived in the mail!! So a couple of weeks ago, Dalillah and I, decided to do a gift swap where we'd get each other: a fashion item, a beauty product, and a book.

We have been friends for sooooo long especially when my blog started off for the first two years. Let me introduce you to Dalillah (though I do think she does not need any introductions, cause it's Dalillah kot!) :D

Dalillah is my long time Singaporean friend whom I have the pleasure of knowing via our blogs. She has her own fashion blog called A Veil of Modesty and you know what, we've been following and talking to each other via cyberspace for quite a while that when we finally met in real life, it felt like I have known her for ages! And we clicked so well too! :D

This is the gift she sent. I was so excited I forgot to snap it before untying the bow heheee!
And inside, is this!
Every gift comes with a thoughtful note and hadeeth (Now I feel bad for my gift to Dalillah!) hahaha
This is the gorgeous beaded bolero she got me :D OMG i just died.
And a Quran trivia for my desk! I really love this daily calendar/book Dali! You guys should look for this too k!
She knows me too well. I have been using the lip balm (on the left) for quite a while, and see it's almost run out dah.. I've been putting off in getting a new one since this one is almost over. And BOOM, Dali sent me this new one on the right. WHAT. ARE. THE. ODDS. I've never shown her my old lip balm ok. Serious this coincidence is crazy Dali!!! :D
And this note was the best of all!
Oh gosh, can you sense my excitement? :D Too many smileys dah letak ni haha.. AllahuAkbar... :) Dali I know you're gonna read this, and babe, I wanna say, thank you soooo much for the gifts, I can't wait to use them all! And most importantly thank you so much for the friendship though we are miles apart, our hearts are just practically next door neighbours! hahaha.. Thank you for looking after me when I was oftenly sick whenever I visit Singapore, and thank you for introducing me to your family and friends as well! September ni nanti I'll see you at Tiq's wedding insyaAllah! :D



To our friendship, may it will forever bloom and bring us closer than ever before, hand in hand towards Jannah, InsyaAllah :)

Thoughts: Meeting Our Creator

I was crazy anticipating for the day when I can finally share with you what I have in this post! You know me, I'm all about sharing with you girls what I truly love and adore, so for this time around, my new praying mat deserve a post dedicated to it! :D

Seeing every time I post a picture of any sejadah I have, you girls will ALWAYS ask me where I got them, and today imma tell you, my particular favourite right now is from QENZA! What first struck me excited was of course, the unique and one of a kind design! Aesthetics appeals so much to me, and I'm sure to most of you too, so Qenza's mats successfully won my heart.

I mean, just look at the gorg design below will ya! :D

It was so hard for me to snap these pics without Carlos in the way!
Every sejadah comes with its bag. Super convenient and awesome as gifts!
I love you but you gotta move, Carlos. This is my corner.
He ain't going anywhere =.="
Yup, still here. I know why he won't move--the mat's too soft!
Story of my life with my "Samudera" Qenza mat.
Haha sorry that you had to see a lot of Carlos in these pics. I tried my best to shoo him away but he still feels that the mat is his. Yesss, I know the mat is super soft and cushion-ey, Carlos, but you gotta let me pray in peace. 

You'll know what I'm talking about when you try the sejadah for yourself. If you're someone like me who appreciates uniqueness while not jeopardising comfort or practicality, then this sejadah should be in your next shopping list. 

Pssst, I actually have another one! Cause having one Qenza mat is not an option for me. I need more. And insyaAllah if rezeqi permits, I think I'll buy them for all my family members as well! I'm sure they'll appreciate praying on a soft mat that's friendly to the knees, especially to my parents :D

Style Diary: Going For Prayers

There's something about going to the mosque that makes your night so so calming, right? And best part of all is when you get yourself ready to go to His home. It's a special place, and indeed we should look forward to it every time we wanna head there. And today, here's what I wore. I practically bought myself the Zahra dress from my Eid collection cause I feel like it suits the whole mosque scene heeee!



Outfit:
Scarf: Ohh I can't remember!
Zahra Dress: Shea Rasol x Simplic
Purse: The Cambridge Satchel Company
Ring: Bazaar

Seriously I'm gonna repeat this look when I go to Eid prayers in two weeks. And I gotta say, mommies would really love this dress cause you can easily pull the piece down (inside the V neck) to breastfeed. And when you're done, simply pull up! :D I designed it that way cause mommies alike always come up to me with their nursing issues with garments. So this was my solution to it ;)

Style Diary: Old Feelings

The title of my post specifically says about how I feel when I wear this vintage dress of mine. I've had  it for 6 years now and to say the least, it's one of my favourite pieces I have in my closet. The design, the cut, and how it makes me look slender wearing it hehee! And I was surprised to see that I still could fit in it cause I tried it again a couple of years ago, it was tight in all the right places. And now, it's looser than I first wore it in 2010! Woohoo!



Outfit:
Dress: Vintage
Pants: Uniqlo
Pure: Salvatore Ferragamo
Mary janes: New Look

And the best part of all, wearing this dress brings so many good memories from way back when. It's the exact dress I wore in 2010 like below:

Event: Mizz Nina, The New Face of Adania

Assalamualaikum beautifuls! Finallyyyy I can blog about the event I went to just before Ramadhan! Heee! And yes, this is the type of event that I most certainly love to attend. Why? Because it's women, and beauty related!

So as some of you might know, I'm a HUGE fan of Amaryllis Spa. I've been there, and I loved the services compared to other spas I've been to. And I could say the list is quite long cause I have never stuck to one particular spa before. And fyi, Amaryllis spa also has their own range of products under the name of Adania--which I use regularly too.

When I was told that this year, their new face of Adania was to be Mizz Nina, I did not hesitate for one second to witness this awesomeness! So I went :D

Adania products in a new packaging and Mizz Nina as their new face!
Mizz Nina is a definite believer of natural products, so understandably she agrees to be with Adania
Ohh she is just so inspiring! I mean, have you seen/heard her in talks/tv programmes? She's truly genuine and down to earth I tell ya
And here is Mrs Nadia, the founder of Amaryllis spa giving me all teary eyed with her speech heehee
I cannot stop staring at these beautiful decor at Flora Hampshire
I wish I could have them all!
Halal and organic--the Honey soap is calling meeeee
Oils and mists for our daily usage. How can you not want these, huh?
Everything is just so awesome I tell ya. I have used some of these products and I can honestly tell you they are of high quality ingredients. The shampoo I had is soooo moisturising, the algae face mask is a must to be applied every 2 weeks, and the organic deodorant I have works wonders. And to be honest with you I support Amaryllis wholeheartedly because they are a Malaysian brand, with Muslim founders, and use halal ingredients. Adding all these three together and I'm sold.

And since I'm feeling generous this Ramadhan, I'd like to offer you my readers discounts! I literally waited for their promos and such to start and have this post up by then cause I want you guys to experience these amazing deals. So if you've been looking for a spa or organic products, I highly recommend Amaryllis and Adania ;)
