Assalam Alaikum everyone~!
I'm Shamma (you can also call me Shums) and I started to blog about hijabi fashion during March this year. I am a 21 year old living in a tiny chain of Islands in the Indian ocean known as the Maldives.
I've always been interested in trying to wear the hijab in different ways. I started wearing the hijab when I was ten years old and since then I'd always wanted to beautify my hijab and wear it as neatly as possible. I believe that wearing a hijab doesn't exempt a Muslim woman from beautifying herself and looking neat and presentable. It is important for a Muslim woman to present herself to society as a symbol of modesty, dignity, beauty and humbleness. A Muslim woman is required to cover herself but it does not mean that she cannot look good while doing so. There is a fine like between looking smart and good and looking seductive and if we keep this in mind we would be able to look modest and beautiful at the same time. This is one of the reasons why I started to blog, because I wanted to express myself as someone who observed the hijab and looked fashionable while doing so.
My blog includes posts on:
- Making everyday clothing hijab friendly and modest,
- Choosing outfits for different occasions
- Mixing and matching outfits
- Fashion shows and designers who make hijab friendly clothing
- Hijab styling tutorials (My personal styles & contributions from interested readers)
I'd like to thank sister Amber for playing such an important role in organizing the best blog awards, may Allah (swt) reward you for the motivation you are giving to me and all the bloggers out there.
