So, while I couldn't take any OOTD pictures, that would not stop me from sharing what I wore and how. Today I was feeling Boho vibes, as well as spring vibes, so I put together this outfit to translate what I was feeling into an outfit. I felt so comfortable and confident in my outfit, and as a result I had a fantastic day, it was so full on that I didn't get a chance to snap it. I do plan on wearing it again and taking pictures this time, just to show you guys the final look on me. 

Share what you wore with me! 


Till next time!

The Hijab




So, what made me want to write today's post is something I feel so strongly about. It is also something I see being mistreated and misinterpreted, which really upsets me; the Hijab! 
The Hijab is a beautiful symbol of modesty and piousness that Allah (subhanahu wa Ta'ala) himself has told us to wear to cover ourselves and conserve our beauty and modesty with. 

The Hijab is meant to cover the hair, ears, neck and chest area, and only the face is to be shown. However,these days the Hijab has become something girls play with and turn into a turban or a hat or just a flying cloth hanging by a pin. 
While I believe that it is okay to dress it up and be fashionable in a modest way, I do not believe that a turban or just covering the hair and leaving the neck justifies the Hijab at all. In fact it has quite the opposite effect and I feel that it degrades it, especially when girls show their ankles and even higher above the ankle sometimes, as well as their neck and a bit of their chest. 

I will be the fist to admit that I am not perfect and that I don't always wear loose clothes like we are meant to, however i do make sure everything is covered properly and nothing of my body is fully defined. I love fashion and style but I also love my Hijab, I wouldn't be me without it. So please, to whoever is reading this, if you or someone you know wears their Hijab in such a way, kindly advise them to try to cover those areas, in a way where you do not offend them of-course! 

Till Next Time!

XOXO

Terracotta Snake bite!










































DETAILS:

♥ Scarf  = Urban Culture

♥ Brown Snake Print Kimono = BOOHOO.COM

♥ Terracotta/ Marsala Jumpsuit = BOOHOO.COM

♥ Brown Snake Print belt = Chicabooti

♥ Brown leather bag = Vintage

♥ White shoes = Williams shoes (I got it a long time ago)

♥ Tiger tooth necklace = Lovisa Jewelry

♥  Ring set + Metalic Tattoo = Lovisa Jewelry

♥ Snake palm cuff  = Colette Hayman

♥ Gold watch = Guess

♥ Sunglasses = Models Prefer (Found at Priceline)


Outfit Notes:

♥ The outfit for today was actually a bit unexpected, I literally stood in front of my cupboard for about 10 minutes before inspiration hit.

♥ The jumpsuit itself is chiffon and lined, it feels really nice on and it is made to be a little loose, the only problem is that I can't wear it by itself because it's a tad see through. So I have to always wear a longer item on top. It actually looks like i payed way more for it that what i actually did.

♥ The Kimono is a lovely brown snake print that is actually very opaque, and long sleeved,  meaning i can wear it on its own with no additional long sleeved tops under. That is a major bonus considering it is summer at the moment.

♥ I chose the white shoes because I felt it completed the outfit better than any other shoes I have. With the exception of tan flats, however because it is Sunday, I went with heels.

♥ The bag that I am carrying is a vintage item that has been passed down to me from my Aunty. It is made from real leather and what feels like fluffy patches.



Till Next time!

Tuna-Avo, Spaghetti Salad: Recipe




Hello,

Okay so a long while bag I posted the above picture to my Instagram (@aNgeliic_Hheart), and said that I would post the recipe real soon, well, that day has finally come! ☺
Honestly, I just winged the proportions, but after making it a couple of times I know what is enough for me. My husband is not interested in salad, hahah!
Ingredients:

  • Spaghetti (as much as you like or a bunch)
  • Kale or lettuce
  • Avocado
  • Mushrooms/ or Paw Paw (I vary these two) 
  • Beetroot
  • Tuna (spicy/ chilly) 
  • Balsamic Dressing
  • Salt 
  • Pepper 
Steps:
  1. Boil Spaghetti in salty water till its Al-Dante
  2. Scatter your lettuce or kale leaves on a plate
  3. Add avocado, mushrooms, beetroot around the leaves, keep center empty
  4. Add the Spaghetti in the center, after it had time to cool from boiling, keep warm
  5. Drizzle with balsamic dressing
  6. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste
  7. Lastly add the Chilly Tuna on top of the Spaghetti
  8. Enjoy the healthy yet delicious salad 
This salad is really yummy, and I hope you give it a try!
