Street Style Inspiration from Pinterest

The last time I did a post on my Pinterest finds was last year and I really enjoyed putting all my pins together.  Since it's been a long time I thought it was time to do another one.  This time though I've been loving 'Street Style' fashion and you all know what happens when you start pinning!  Well, you just can't stop can you?  So here's my little board on what I've been loving.  Stay tuned I might even do a 'How To Wear Street Style' post. So look out for that!

RECIPE | Pizza Rolls

We all love pizza don't we?  I don't know anyone who doesn't!  I've been thinking wouldn't it be great if you could take pizza with you as part of a packed lunch?  Well, now you can with these pizza rolls.  They're great for picnics in the park too and you can fill them with all your favourite pizza toppings.  What more could you want?!

How to Style The Spring Pantone Colour 2016 | Rose Quartz & Serenity

As you all know I don't usually go for the pastel colours because I much prefer the darker tones.  Having said that though, I don't mind adding a touch of the lighter shades to my outfit in small quantities.

So when I was approached by Farfetch to style the Spring Pantone colours, I had to say yes because one of my favourite things to do is putting together an outfit.

I have to say this years colours, Rose Quartz and Serenity, are absolutely stunning and just perfect for Spring.  They look effortlessly beautiful together and on their own too.  The perfect colour combination of a warm and cool tone blending together to create a harmonious shade that can be worn by everyone.

Personally, I wouldn't wear an outfit that screams pink and blue.  You don't want to be wearing just the two tones on their own so choose one of the colours as a statement piece and add a complimentary colour to balance out the whole look.  That's exactly what I've done with my casual chic look for Spring.

10 Things Every Blog Should Have

Sometimes I find that my blog posts can get lost so I thought I'd share with you a post that I think I wrote last year on 10 Things Every Blog Should Have.  I've been blogging for a while now and I've picked up a lot of information along the way.  I've learnt so much and I'm still learning more each day.  From time to time I like to give my blog a little spring clean, just tidy it up a little here and there.  And I've found that even though I may add or remove a few things, there are always some things that are here to stay.

So without further ado, here is my post on 10 things every blog should have.

Tuesday Shoesday | How To Wear The Clog Style Sandal

Today is Tuesday, which means it's my first installment of my brand new series, 'Tuesday Shoesday'.  I'm sure you'll have guessed from the title that it's all about shoes, obviously.  And there's no better time to kick start this series than right now!

This week the clocks go forward by an hour, which means less time in bed but it also means that we can finally (hopefully) pack away our boots and bring out the sandals.  Woohoo! Every Tuesday I'll be chatting about shoes and today, I'm going to show you how to wear the clog style sandal.

How To style A Bomber Jacket This Spring

Back in the day I remember the bomber jacket all too well.  It was a lot bigger than it is now and although I didn't really like it back then, I kinda do now.  I like the new streamlined version and I think it's a lot more wearable.  I don't know if that's the right word but what I mean is that you can dress it up or just keep it casual, without looking tacky.

RECIPE | Popcorn Chicken Bhajiya

I thought I'd share my mums Popcorn Chicken Bhajiya recipe with you today.  You've probably tried the onion bhajis and if you like them, then you'll love these even more.  I personally don't like onions, which is why this version is my favourite.  Seriously tho, once you start you won't be able to stop!

Valentino Autumn/Winter 2016/17 RTW Collection

I'm back again with Valentino!  Last year, I posted my favourite SS2015 RTW Collection by Valentino and this year I'm loving their collection all over again.  They get me every time!

I'm not a huge fan of the nude shades.  As you know, I'm more of a, 'I'll have one in black please' type of girl.  But when I saw this collection I couldn't help but fall in love.  I mean it's Valentino!  What could there possibly be anything wrong with it?!  Valentino makes you want to wear the colours you would never dream of wearing.  Valentino, makes you look more than just good!

VIDEO | What's in My Toddler's Bag?

If you're a mum, like me, you'll know only too well what it's like going out with your little one.  There's always so much to take with you and I would often find myself taking more than what we would actually need, even on short trips!  We'd end up coming back with most things unused.

How To Beat Bloggers Block

There comes a time in a blogger's life when you go through the dreaded bloggers block.  I went through it for a long time just recently and I thought it was never going to end!  At the beginning I think I was pushing myself, almost forcing myself to come up with something to blog about.  But no matter how much I tried I kind of just hit a brick wall.  It was like a cycle.  Every evening I would be like, 'ok, that's it, tomorrow I'm going to blog about something'.  The next morning, nothing.  Literally, nothing at all!  And it continued on and on and on.  Eventually I realised I just had to ride it out and one day I'd be able to get back on the horse.

RECIPE | Scrambled Egg n Cheese Bagel Brunch

Recently I've been obsessed with bagels, especially the Warburtons Bagel Thins!  I've had the normal sized ones before but for me they were too filling so when I tried these they were just right.

There's so many yummy fillings you can try with bagels and this one with the scrambled egg, cheese and little rocket salad is currently one of my faves.

VIDEO | The Side Flick HIjab Tutorial

So I finally decided to take the plunge and go for it.  I made my first Youtube video and it's a side flick turban tutorial.  Yes, it took me a long time to edit and plenty of trials and errors to match.  But I got there in the end.  I definitely think it could be better and I need a better camera. But until I get one I'll do my best with what I've got.  I've tried to be a little creative and different to the usual hijab tutorial style videos out there so I really hope you like it.

I Revamped My Instagram

This week I decided it was time to spring clean my Love Hijab Girl Instagram account.  I'd made one almost 2 years ago.  And since I already have one for my shop which I update regularly (actually everyday!) I'd been neglecting my blog account.

I wanted to give my page a complete revamp and move away from the all white look.  Although I love the crisp clean look, I've been loving the more darker urban look recently and wanted to go for something a little different.

My All Black H&M Wishlist

I love a good wishlist and it doesn't necessarily have to be fashion related either.  Homeware wishlists are just as good.  I'm planning on doing one of those soon because I don't think I've actually done a proper one really and there's a lot of things I've got my eye on.

Anyways, today's wishlist is all black!  For those of you who've been reading my blog from the beginning will already know how much I LOVE black!  You might even be a bit bored of me going on about it too.  But for me, black is everything.  It's my happy colour.  And it hides away all those bits I need to tone up.  It's good to me, so here's my wishlist from H&M.
