Chiffon Shawl Hijab Tutorial : Tutorial Mudah Memakai Hijab Sifon

Many friends asked me how to wear this style of hijab. I love this style so much because it looks neat and simple.  I take my baby girl wherever I go. This style is rarely ruined by her because e ach edge of the hijab is secured. Let me show you how. 1. Take one of the short side of your hijab and secure it on your hair bun. You can use pins or simply tie them  in square knot. 2. Take the other short side of your hijab to your head so it gives the nice drapery on your chest.  3. Make sure you make the drapery long enough to cover your chest.  4. Adjust the hijab on your face and secure it in each of your temples - or where ever you think it looks good on you - with pins.  Each of us has different  shape of face. Since I have an oval face, I secure my hijab beneath my earlobe to make my face more proportional. 5. Take the rest of your hijab and secure them under your neck. Here is another tip. If you have a more chubby face or a plus

Inspirasi Outfit Warna Pastel : Pink and Grey

The simplest way to make a good mix is to know a good palette that looks good on you. Just this time, leave your blue jeans or black pants and try to wear something in pale colors. In terms of colors of an outfit, pink and grey will never fail you. Take any of your basics in soft grey and soft pink and mix them together. Voila ! You may wear basics - just a simple pant and a simple shirt - but they can stand out too! Many times, it's not the clothes that make us stand out. It's us to make them stand out. I t is why stylists can keep their job, isn't it? Hehehe.... Add an item in shocking colors, like my fuschia wedges, to make your outfit even sweeter :D  Scarf - Mocca Shirt - Fiska Fiska @moshaict Pants - The Executive Shoes - Crocs

Wedges and Boots

My first awareness of fashion was about six years ago. I was a university student, on the third year  and was an intern in a famous business magazine.  Though I wear hijab, I was a tomboy girl. My clothes collections are plain shirts, jeans and dusty sneakers.  One day, I had an assignment from the magazine to interview a General Manager in one of the electronic appliances company. In that very moment I sat in front of him, I realized that I didn't dress properly. In fact, I dressed shabbily. Somehow I felt a little embarrassed about what I wore that day. I didn't realize that I was gonna interview someone important and should've dressed properly.  I mean, not very neat or well-groomed. I just wanted to be comfortable in meeting people. From then, I realized dressing up is not for people to see, but for us to feel comfortable and confident about ourselves.  The whole things about dressing up is about you. How you want to be seen.  Moreover, dressing up is a

Today's Quote

Last night I found this quote from Kafi Kurnia 's wall on Facebook. He's famous for the nickname "Si Jabrik". A Managing director of a marketing and branding consultant company. "You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you, yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself, is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away.  It's not like you have forever, so don't throw even one of your moments away." - C.

Family Fun Day

Last Saturday, we went to Waterbom Jakarta, Pantai Indah Kapuk, for a Family Fun Day event. The event held by my hubby's office. It was an annually event. We were having fun. It was the first time for my Bebe to go swimming, so we were so excited :D. We were just arrived and my Bebe got goodies for kids Took some shots while every body was queueing Morning snacks. Look! My Bebe got a new barbie bag and lots of snacks inside :D My bebe got three lollypops :D. I hid it after the shots. She doesn't know what lollypop means after all, I never gave her  one :D The wall of fame. I was wearing a silver mask and my hubby wear a golden crown. :D Bebe always loves baloons :) Becak riding with Papa :D This is her first time to swim and she was so excited! :D She ran around and around in her new bathing suit :D My Bebe loves sate! Like father like daughter :D And this is like mother like daughter :D She insist

Oversized Top

Hijabers love oversized top!!! Oversized top has became a new essential basic for them. Instead of wearing a boring tunic, you can wear this piece but still covering your awrah .  As for me, this is why I love wearing them:  I love wearing basic casual clothes but I  have a short curvy body. Any 'wrong' clothes will make me look chubby or bigger. My shoulder is smaller than most people have but my hip is larger than most of them. Meanwhile, many basic casual clothes available in the stores have straight cuts. So if I wear something small, it will look good on my shoulder but too tight in my hip while bigger clothes will cover my hip but will make my shoulder sag. So you can imagine how hard it is to find clothes that really fit for me.  Until last year, I found a Top from Zysku Xena  called Gemma Top I love this shirt (a lot!). This is an oversized shirt but its sleeve is tightened a bit in the edge. It shows that you actually have arms and shoulder. The tightened

Stripe Shirt

I bought a new HELLO! Indonesia magazine about a week ago and I noticed something about stripe shirt.  Red and white stripe shirt combined with beige pants Red and white stripe shirt combined with light blue jeans and blazer Black and white stripe shirt with khaki pants I noticed none of them combined with dark pants and that's what makes the color of the stripe shirt stands out. So why don't you try mixing your own stripe shirt  with light colored pants! It's better than trying to mix your stripe shirt with black pants and it's still make you look casual too. What do you think?

Bebe in Red

This funny story happened a few months ago when we just got home after attended our neighbor's afternoon party. My Bebe took my clutch pretended to be like me. Hahaha. So I took my camera and took the shots :D

Good People

Guru pengajian saya pernah bilang, kalau mau jadi orang baik, maka kita harus berdekatan dengan orang yang baik. Nabi Muhammad SAW sendiri pernah bersabda, jika kita berdekatan dengan pedagang minyak wangi, maka kita pun akan terkena wanginya. Alhamdulillah sudah hampir 1,5 tahun mengenal teman-teman di pengajian komplek. Banyak sekali pelajaran yang didapat. Ada pelajaran agama, persahabatan, dan pelajaran tentang hidup.  Hari ini pulang pengajian langsung pengen nge-blog. Hm.. yang dibahas begitu mengena rasanya di hati. Padahal berawal dari pertanyaan sederhana dari guru kami, Bu Yuli. "Bagaimana puasanya? Mungkin pada mau share puasa tahun ini dengan puasa tahun kemarin. Apa ada bedanya? Apa ada kemajuan?" Ternyata alhamdulillah beberapa teman sudah khatam Alquran di bulan puasa. Ada yang menyiasatinya dengan membaca dua puluh halaman setiap hari, ada pula yang menyiasati dengan memanfaatkan waktu malam harinya untuk mengaji.  Ada pula yang meras


My name's Mia Fauzia. Although i made this blog about one year ago, this is my first post. ah well, I made some posts but I decided that I don't like them and so I removed them. Hahaha... I am a mother of a baby girl. I love singing (to myself), I love photography (though I'm not a very good photographer), I love reading and I like to laugh (like a lot!).  After I gave birth to my baby girl, my whole world seemed to change. Many ups and many downs. Well, I survived and  I enjoy my new life  as a wife and a mother. So, here's my blog. Happy reading! :)
