Pearl Daisy: Maxi Ombre Hoojab Review

Asalamulakum, today's post is a Pearl Daisy review. I've always wanted to buy an ombre hijab because I don't own any and I really like the way they look. So, when I saw Amina from Pearl Daisy style her ombre hijabs I knew had to buy them. Plus I really wanted to try the hoojab. I am an awfully lazy shopper and I always look for an easy way out of things. Therefore shopping online is a must for me, with eBay being my best friend,  i'm used to delivery taking forever. Pearl Daisy surprised me with how quick their delivery took. I bought it on Sunday and it arrived on Tuesday, it literally took about 2 days and I never even payed for express shipping. 

When I opened the hijab I was thoroughly impressed, It has a really nice quality of pashmina, even my brother (who honestly doesn't normally care about hijabs) commented on how good the quality was. But however when it comes to wearing the hijab, it is kinda complicated to wear, I literally watched her tutorial hundreds of times and trying to maneuver the hijab, until I got it a bit looking like a wearable hijab. The hijab does snag quite a lot however, I know that she always says to use a no-snag hijab pin but I find no snag pins too big to put under my chin. But I guess the snagging might be my fault since I didn't use the correct pin. 

To be perfectly honest, I haven't worn it since I got it, because of how difficult it is to put on. But I would probably buy pashminas from Pearl Daisy because I guess for me personally its just easier to use. However if your a hijab expert and really good at styling hijabs, then I world definitely give a hoojab a try.

Jazakallah for reading and I hope to see you all in the next post inshaAllah.

Never give up!

Life is hard, things happen that seem punch you in face, maybe both physically and emotionally. People have hurt you, things have happened. Whether that be your friend backstabbing you, losing your job, getting a bad grade, whatever it maybe. Your not alone, because I've been there and I probably will be there again. I'm here to tell you never to give up. Never give up!

So where should you start. Be proud of who you are.For me this is probably the most important one, and it’s something I’m still trying to tell myself today. I've always felt a little different. And maybe I don’t fit into this category of the “norm”.  I’m visually dyslexic which means I have to wear these funky blue glasses when I’m reading and to be completely honest I’m so embarrassed when I have to wear them, I feel like everyone is looking at me. But the truth is I can’t run away from my dyslexia and instead I have to embrace it wholeheartedly. Because in this world there will always be people who will judge you and stereotype you but as long as you accept the way you were made and learn to love yourself, you'll have nothing to worry about.

Its funny how everyone says that your drive for success should be to prove people wrong, but is that really the truth? Your success should not be driven by the need to prove other people wrong, you should do it for yourself. The truth is when you succeed it wouldn't make any difference to the people who said you couldn't do it in the first place. You need to be driven by proving yourself wrong rather than others. Remember how they made you feel, use that as your motivation instead. 

Even if you feel that no one loves you right now and what your going through is really hard, just remember this. Allah never burdens anyone with anything they cannot handle. This must mean that we are strong enough to deal with this situation and this is why Allah has given this to us. Allah loves us, he loves us more than our parents… and we all know that our parents would even sacrifice their lives for us. Remember after hardship comes ease. 

The truth is i'm not writing this post only for all you out there but for myself also. So I know to take my own advice when I feel like giving up. See you all in the next post inshaAllah!
