Inspirasi Hijab Outfit Warna Pastel : Broken White dan Nude

My father once said, if we have a bad mood and stand in front of our closet trying to pick what to wear today, we tend to choose darker colors. 
"That is not good," He said. It only make our mood got worse and people can really see that we are in a bad mood. First thing to do in the morning is to cheer up and wear some clothes in light colors.
It was pretty weird because I used to love navy blue and I took my father's advice in fashion :D. I don't know if it is right or just me taking it seriously. But I love pale and pastel colors since then. Hahaha...
Now, every time my mood got bad when I need to go out, I dress up in light colors and put on my peach lipstick just to cheer myself up. It doesn't always work, but I feel better. At least my face doesn't look so depressed :D.
Beside pink and gray in my first pale palette post, this one is my favorite palette too: broken white and nude.

The Umrah (Cerita Umrah - Part II)

Wow, today is 9th day of Zulhijjah. Are you fasting today? Well, I am. I have cold actually and sore throat too. But I don't want to break my fast because I want to finish what I have started so breaking it would make me feel like 'chicken' :D.
My Mom texted me asking how I was and I said it's okay. Can't wait for Maghrib and I just want to drink a big jar of water. Hahaha... 
Today I want to continue my story about the Umrah. 
The next day, two days after the first umrah, we were gathered early in the morning, at about 3 a.m. The lead of the group, H. Dede would take us to see the cave of Hira in The Hill of Nur (Jabal Nur).

The Cave of Hira is where the first revelation, Al-Alaq (96, 1-5), revealed to the Prophet, Muhammad. Here I found the English translation version from Wikipedia
96:1 Read in the name of your Lord, Who created- 96:2 Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood ['alaq علق]: 96:3 Read! And thy Lord is Most honourable,- 96:4 He Who taught (th…

How To Wear Pink

Just a pink mood :).

Chiffon Shawl Hijab Tutorial #2: Cara Mudah Memakai HIjab Sifon

Before I begin, I must tell you that this style is not a style that I invent myself. I saw it in a book (Hijab Simpel & Modis, Leny Riana & Irna Dewi, Demedia: April 2012) and I've seen it in many times in hijab blogs. So I'm not sure who invented this style. Here, I just want to share three modifications of this style.
This is the simplest way to wear hijab and some of you may have seen this style many times because I've seen it many times too. But even it is simple, we can modify it a little to make different looks just to make it seems like we're not wearing exactly the same style everyday. Hehehe... :D

Now, I want to share three styles you can create only by adjusting the hijab on your face and secure it with pins. 

First style: Show the inner a little. Adjust the hijab on your face and secure it with pins. In this style I secure my hijab beneath my ears. Just a little tip, always adjust your hijab style with your face because we all have different type of face…

The Umrah (Cerita Umrah - Part 1)

"Labbaik Allaahumma labbaiik. Labbaika laa syariika laka labbaiik. Innalhamda wanni'mata lakawalmulk. Laa syariikalak."

"Aku datang memenuhi panggilan-Mu, Ya Allah! aku datang memenuhi panggilan-Mu. Aku datang memenuhi panggilan-Mu, (Tuhan) yang tidak ada sekutu bagi-Mu, aku datang memenuhi panggilan-Mu. Sesungguhnya segala pujian, nikmat dan kekuasaan adalah kepunyaan-Mu. Tidak ada sekutu bagi-Mu."

Hm.. tiap kali mendengar kalimat ini rasanya gimanaaa gitu.  Hari Minggu lalu baru saja ikut pengajian walimatu shaffar seorang teman yang mau pergi haji. Jadi ingat kenangan waktu umrah bareng suami. Kangen sekali. Kapan ya bisa memenuhi panggilan haji. Huhuhu.... Amiiin... di dalam hati.

Jadi terpikir buat catatan perjalanan itu. Yah, gapapa deh udah lama juga. Ingin sekali mengingat kenangan ini just exactly the same seperti yang saya ingat. Moga-moga ngasih semangat ngumpulin duit buat haji. amiiin... 

Berhubung waktu memulai blog ini saya pengen ngelancarin tulisan…

Inspirasi Hijab Outfit : Memakai Palazzo

I remember a long time ago when I was at university and I have three best friends: Yogie, Nisa, and Evi. The funny thing about us is that all the four of us have petite bodies. The four of us have nearly the same heights: between 152 to 157 cm :D.
One of our friend called us "The Hobbit". All of you who have seen The Lord of The Rings movie must be familiar with four short people and all look like they never grow old. Hehehe.... 
This problem - my height - has been my problem every time I try to find something to wear. Many times, it related to the length of shirts, sleeves, pants and so on. But as time goes by, I found out some cuts that really suit me well. One of them is palazzo pants.
For you who have the same problem like mine, you may like Palazzo pants. Palazzo pants  make our legs look longer. Only in one condition, wear them with your 7 cm heels (or more) or your favorite platform shoes. 

The heels will show your best figure and at the same time, the pants will give you…

Inspirasi Hijab Outfit : Earth Colors

Another simple daily look. I've just got the shirt I bought from an online shop. It has animal print accents and a bright brown color. So I combined it with greenish-grey pants and orange-brown wedges to create an earthy color tone :)  
Talking about pants, This is one of my favorite pants. I think every girl should have one favorite pants to wear for any occasion so you know what to wear when you're in a hurry. Hehehe... 
When lebaran or end of year sale is on, I think we really should buy some good basics. A good quality pants are never out of date and you can combine them with any top you want to work, to the mall, anywhere! :D.
