Events : Spring Wardrobe Styling Workshop at WORKSHOPMODESTY



Hi Beauties...

Happy Weekend!

Soo who doesn't love events, pretty decor, delicious food and inspiring people? That's what went down at the Workshopmodesty  Styling Workshop event two weeks ago, yes I know I'm late with this blog post but as use know I'm busy with a hundred things and it gets crazy at times but none the less, here goes enjoy the read!
So let me start from the beginning, my journey with the amazing ladies from Little Big Event Planners and Workshopmodesty started a year ago when they invited me to the launch to write a blog post about the "opening events and happenings".This time I was invited as a guest speaker and I felt very honoured, Shukran so much for inviting me and making me part of this great event.(if you would like to read the blog post about the launch follow this workshopmodesty opening launch )





So upon arrival everyone loved the beautiful setting, it was so pretty and welcoming and had a Spring feel to it with tones of white and pink decor and the most beautiful flower arrangements. And guess what for once in my life I was early and being early has it's perks, I got to meet some of the amazing designers I didn't meet before (we follow each other on instagram but never met) we had time to chat and take some pictures together before it got crowded.





Welcome
The event kicked of with a heart warming opening from the lovely Nasheetah (owner of Workshopmodesty), she mentioned that she doesn't feel like the owner at all and that all the designers are owners and that they are like family to her. The in house designers currently showcasing their beautiful garments in the store are GKD by Gadijah Kahn, Vanilla for kids by Rafeeqa Smith, Diyana, Khaos Jewels and Nasheetah's brand the Infinity Collection SA.

You can also find goodies from Crystal Modest Boutique and Nifty Works.
If you haven't yet been at the store you are missing out, go follow them on instagram @workshopmodesty to stay updated and they always share when they having a sale!

Fashion
Ok, so to be honest I never spoke at events before other than at my moms 50th and recently at my dad-inlaws 70th birthday party in front of so eighty people and it consisted mostly of family and friends. When little Big Event Planners approached me and
asked if I would like to be a guest speaker at the event I thought it would be good to step out of my comfort zone and that there's always a first time for everything right? So when it was my turn I started off fine and spoke for a few minutes and while speaking I suddenly began to feel so weird, I tried to continue after I drank some juice but felt like I wanted to faint, I really don't know if it was nerves or just my sugar levels that dropped because I didn't eat. After I took a break while someone else continued with their topic I felt fine and ready to continue and I must say the second time around went much better and I was happy to have shared of my fashion tips and also some of this seasons spring/summer trends. 





Makeup
In-between me taking a little break we had professional makeup artist safiyyah Sauls sharing makeup tips and she also showed us how to create a quick spring make-up look, I really loved the oranje eye shadow look she created on Raeesa.





Clothing
One of the in-house designers Gadija Khan gave the guests some amazing clothing and styling tips. She explained how to take care for your clothes, how to make it last longer and showed some of her latest designs while also giving away some great prizes.






Scarfstyling
We then had scarf styling by the talented Raeesa founder of Zahara Scarfstyling and all the beautiful on-trend scarves used was from Rana scarves. The question alot of people always ask "how do you wrap your turbans and how do you get your scarf to stay on your head" Raeesa explained that so nicely, she mentioned that the base/ underscarf or cap you use is the most important because if the base is not right your scarf won't look or feel right and will slip off.

Home
Next up we had Faghri from Revere linen,   he gave the guests some great home tips and tricks he also gave us awesome ideas on how to re-create a space in your home or outside that you don't like or wanted to change but just never got to it. He went on over to the bedroom section and explained how to make your bed look Aaamazing without breaking the bank but also explained the importance of quality fabric.





Last but definetly not least we had the amazing Registered Councellor Shanaaz Moos sharing parenting tips and explaining that how beauty should firstly come from the inside before working and beautifying the outside!

Eid Ul Fitr 2017


Good day Beautiful people,

I know this post is super late because life has just been super hectic! I'm sharing a few pictures of Eid Ul Fitr that we celebrated on the 26th of June and as you now Eid is a very special day in any Muslims life and is celebrated with family and friends. This Eid was different to other Eids, something felt missing and has been feeling so every Eid since my mother in-law passed on, my sister in-law and kids from Namibia also didn't​ join us for Eid this year and my husband slept half of the day away because he was'nt feeling well at all. My daughter was just the cutest even though she didnt quite understand what was wrong with her father, she went to check up on him every few minutes, stood infront of him to make sure he's still ok and stroked his hair and kissed him then went off to play again for a while again. So beautiful to see the love between daddy and daughter, I tried my best to make the day enjoyable for her.

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my posts about Muneeb that recently went for an operation, hence the hectic part and it was difficult not only for him in the beginning but for me too, he could'nt move much so I had to help him alot but he came around very quickly and was better in no time, Alhamdulilah I Shukr Allah for that.  
We managed to atleast get one family pic on the day, over the years it became a tradition to take family pictures on Eid.
