My Two Cents on the Konmari Method

I’m not one to follow trends, so although I had heard people raving about the Konmari Method, I was never really intrigued, until I found an audible version of the book, which I could listen to on my way to and from work, meaning it wouldn’t take away from any other reading that I felt…

Ethical Hijab

The word fashion often reminds one of beautiful, tall, lean women who use their bodies to display clothing in the most favorable light.

Kibbe Romantic & Theatrical Romantic: Hijabi Edition!

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, the Kibbe styling guide subdivides body shapes into five main categories, which further divide into 2 or 3 more, depending on which method you’re using. They go from stereotypically male-type traits (linear, angular, strong, bone-dominant), which are called yang, and are represented by the Dramatic type;…
