DIY Pom Pom

Who doesn't love pom poms? They are so cute, and bring out the happy side in everyone. I sure do love them, and I'm planning to make a pom pom cushion cover. But before that I have to make the pom poms. Here is a super easy pom pom tutorial made from knitting yarn. These pom poms can be used for anything from curtain trimmings, to hats, to cute little key chains.

Travel Diaries: A day in Essaouira

Marrakech is the city of clay colours. With dark red & orange buildings, where else Essaouira is the city of light washed with white & blue buildings. This beach city is bright compared to the darker hues of Marrakech. It was a quick day trip, but enough for me to fall in love. Spent most of the day walking & eating opposite the beach, which much needed as a day off from my busy Marrakech holiday.

DIY Niqab

The niqab is a garment most of us sisters wear. Even though I don't wear a niqab, I have for years collected a selection of niqabs that I have worn when time permits it.
For those of you who are, or want to start wearing one. I have come up with a simple DIY niqab.
With only ten steps, anyone can do it. You won't  need to buy fabric it is that simple.

Gold & Mirrors in the V&A

take great pleasure in looking at interior and architecture. I believe interior, architecture and fashion all go hand in hand. If you love one, the rest all find a place in your heart one way or another. And they balance each other out. A hobby of mine to visit museums, and who can resist the V&A museum in London. It's close to Knightsbridge, so once finished I can pop into Chapati & Karak then some retail therapy in Harrods.

Dreaming about books & their covers



Judging a book by its cover is not good, right? But sometimes I can't help it and I buy a book solely on its cover. Most of the time I don't regret it, I like to think of myself as a lover of arts, and book covers are an art form in it self. Here is my selection of books I can't wait to get my hands on, they are all different from journaling, to cooking, to calligraphy and diy. The best part the contents looks just as good as the outer appearance.

Style: Stars & pockets + Thamanyah

I would love to say that  Thamanyah was designed to celebrate my blog name, stars and all. We designed the abaya with the stars long before I chose the name for my blog. It matches and  I love it, so now this is my new favourite abaya. So lets just pretend that this abaya is in honour of my blog.
Plus it has pockets, what is it us girls and our love for pockets?  When someone complements my outfit, usually I will smile, accept it and then gush about the pockets, like it is super cool to have pockets "look and it has pockets"
