In Michigan we are experiencing amazingly warm weather! Today it was near 90 degrees, and in March this is very strange, the normal temperature would be in the 40s and 50s. Although we are sure this isn’t going to last, and most probably the cold will return before the natural onset of warm spring and summer, we are enjoying this weather. However, my wardrobe has been taken by surprize as I am scrambling to find hijab friendly cool outfits to wear. This got me into looking at the beautiful maxis, which my consistent readers will know by now, I love. Below I share some of the maxis I found, and then I also proceeded to look for possible light jackets/blazers that could be worn over them. I focused on 5 major retailers, Nordstroms, Macys, Lord & Taylor, H&M, and Forever 21. Enjoy!
I just had to write this post today, because I just had to share the amazing and innovative mission and project that N.M.N & Co. have undertaken.
This is a group of people who are very passionate about The Children’s Cancer Hospital in Karachi, Pakistan. They wanted to find a way to raise money to help the hospital and its great and most necessary service, therefore they cam up with this project in which they sell fashionable jewelry and watchs, and 100% of the money that is received from the purchases customers make is given to the hospital to assist the children who are suffering from cance but do not have the resources to pay for their treatment. MashAllah what an awesome project! Furthermore, the jewelry they are selling are absolutely beautiful! These people should not only be commended but we should all help them by participating in helping them by making purchases so that they are able to raise more and more funds for this important cause. If you do not live in Pakistan, you can still order, and have the items shipped to a relative or friend who lives in Pakistan, so that they do not have to spend money on shipping international. If you would like make a purchase but do not have anyone in Pakistan to have your purchases shipped to, send me a message and we will arrange something for you.
May Allah protect and bless them and all who participate in this great project, and may Allah bless them with great success and help the unfortunate children who are suffering with a speedy recovery and may Allah give patience and strength to their parents and families. Ameen!
And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity: And whatever good ye send forth for your souls before you, ye shall find it with Allah: for Allah sees Well all that ye do. (Surah Baqarah, Verse 110)

I finally made my purchases from the new Zeena Collection and just like always, they shipped it out right away, and three days later I had my order. The first shirt I wore was the Zeena Pearl Tunic in steel blue, and I love it! Now, I’m not slim like I use to be, and in fact I’ve even put on a few extra pounds, (For some reason since Thanksgiving I can’t seem to conince my stomach that feasting time has been long over), so I usually order the Zeena shirts in XL, but this time I went out on a limb and orderd L, and it worked! The material is mostly polyester and a bit of spandex, and I love the feel of the fabric. Even though it is stretchable, it doesn’t stick to me or make my bulges prominent. The color is glorious, the design of the buttons on the bottom side is very chic and the length is simply perfect. I wore it with skinny, but not so skinny jeans, and magenta colorcoat, and a scarf from Target, and I felt really good. You know the most important thing is how you feel. I try not to focus too much on what others say, except for a couple of my closest friends and my husband, because I think the major thing about anything you wear, or do with you hair is how it makes YOU feel. If you feel good and confident, you will be confident, which will lead to a happier and healthier life. And on those grounds Zeena made this Desi Muslimah very very happy, mashAllah!
Yes I am crazy about maxi dresses…and I was so happy to learn that just because its winter doesn’t mean that maxi dresses are out! Now all I have to do is lose some weight so I will actually look good in a maxi dress! LOL! That is in the plan, (upcoming post about my losing weight plan)iA. In the meantime I enjoy looking at all the lovely maxi dresses out there this winter, and share them with you too! Tell me which one you like!
Yup, that’s right, hijabs at Target. This past year it seems like western fashion has become quite hijabi friendly. Maxi dresses, maxi skirts, fly away cardigans, and yes scarves in the perfect length and fabric to be used as hijabs! My visits to Target are usually to the pharmacy, which I used to try to get my hubby or his brother to stop and pick up. Recently though I find myself actually looking forward to having to go to the Target Pharmacy. As I make way to pick up medication, I walk throught the accessories aisle to check out the scarves collection. I’ve picked up quite a collection. For $10-$14, they are affordable, and quite attractive. Share with me where have you found some nice scarves to use as hijabs.
I couldn’t help sharing this beautiful BCBG dress I saw online. I love the elegance of the design and the softness of the color I love dresses which are modest yet at the same time feminine, attractive, while being a bit sensual, which the sleevless aspect of this dress offers. A very good dress to wear to a non-desi ladies only event.
