My daily hijab style

Many of you who follow me on Instagram will already know that I've joined the Youtube bandwagon :O I will be doing videos whenever I'm feeling free, and since I don't start uni for a while now I thought why not?

Here's a link to my YT channel

Many of you ask me how I style my hijab, here's the video! I also have a brow tutorial up :)

How to deal with hate comments, i.e. Invalidity

Hello hello hello and salaam girls, I've always wanted to make a post some people might class as 'rants' - i.e. speaking my mind fluidly with no constrictions or conformations. This is just 100% Habiba Da Silva. Let me know if you'd like more posts like this with mention of topics and ideas. Enjoy!

To be behind an array of social networks these days takes a lot of heart and mind strength. The more the popularity, the more people will like you and hate you. This has become a well-known formula and is something everyone needs to take heed of because it is reality. For whatever reason, no matter how much good you do - religiously or morally - people will find reasons to go against you, your beliefs or your appearance. Now I'm not making this post to judge these people or downcast them (Allah and karma are good enough), this post is to enlighten you with a frame of mind I've imposed on myself to the point where I can honestly say no matter how bad a remark is said against me it does not affect me in any way.

Many of my friends try to sympathise with me when they see a negative comment on my social networks and are usually surprised when I tell them that it doesn't bother me. 

As long as you know yourself, your intentions, your capability and have belief in yourself nothing anyone says should bother you. You're the only one who knows you, the false accusations are thus invalid, the rude comments are fuelled from jealousy and the fact that you have something that person wants and cannot have/achieve should in fact make you happy and humbled to be you! 

Many girls these days like to mask their hate comments as 'advice' especially in the hijabi-globe. Yet don't they realise that their so called 'advice'  is given in the completely wrong method which contradicts their purpose. Therefore their comment is more or less invalid.

Keep that in mind the next time someone comments negatively on your social networks.

Sadoq Review

Hello all! I know it's been so so long, I've been so caught up in assignments. But fear not, as I'm very free at the moment and planning on doing a lot of damage to my blog! Haha. I'm also recently changing up my blog layout, let me know what you think of it.. ;)

So a few months ago I received two gorgeous quality hijabs - and I know I've stopped reviewing hijabs on my blog and instead just feature them on Instagram, but the quality of these are amazing (as well as so easy to wear) and the company owner is lovely and so patient, so I just couldn't help but write a post entirely for them! 

To purchase these and more gorgeous hijabs head over to the Sadoq website here,
you can also follow them on Instagram (@sadoqmuslimfashionwear) and if you need to you can contact them at
