Dear Mum, I was counting my blessings and you came to mind. How fitting it is that the first person on my list is also the first one who knew me when I arrived into this world. I’ve always wondered how you felt about me when you were carrying me in your womb. And now as I scroll through my news feed, coming across soon-to-be mothers showing off their tummy bumps getting bigger as the weeks pass, I am hoping that you did the same.
Shopping online at Ayu Apparels is always an exciting thought. You may have in the situation where you are simply spoilt for choice when browsing through our catalog. When that happens, decisions have to be made and you will most probably have to narrow down your selections to only your favorite hijabs or Muslimah dresses.

If you’ve ever had a massive headache thinking about what you should wear to school, know that you’re not alone! Sometimes I miss wearing a school uniform because then it would mean that I won’t have such a problem. But after spending two years in university, I’ve come to be grateful for the opportunity for me to express myself through my outfits. Here are five looks that I think would allow me and you to do just that, while allowing us to still look presentable in the classroom.
Ahh… don’t you have those days when everything’s wrong with your hijab? Just like a bad hair day, a bad hijab day happens at times. And I’ve heard that a bad hijab day is worse than a bad hair day because when all else fails, a ponytail always does the trick. So what happens on a bad hijab day?

Undoubtedly, shopping is one of the things on the to-do list of every overseas trip. But as a Muslimah, it is sometimes difficult to find places that sell the kind of clothes we would typically wear. Fear not, I’ve compiled a list of shopping malls, markets and districts around the region if ever you find yourself on a getaway to any of our neighbouring countries.
Summer break is upon us! So I reckon that many of you will soon be traversing across the globe for various reasons – perhaps for internships, family visits or leisure. If you’re going to be backpacking or travelling from place to place in one trip, then it might be a good idea to pack light – try to squeeze everything into a backpack for convenience’s sake! But even as you try to fit your life essentials into a bag, here are some essentials you shouldn’t leave home without.
Hands down, pastel colours are one of my absolute favourite colour schemes. I find these colours to be soft yet bold, elegant yet playful at the same time. Having said this, however, I have to admit that it took me a while to get used to wearing pastels because I found it a hassle to mix them. Do the colours even match? Do these pastel-coloured shoe look out of place? Do I look too much like a princess? After trial-and-error (and also looking at how other people mix their pastels), I’ve come up with a four-way solution that perhaps you would find useful if you’ve ever had doubts with this family of colour.
Do you find yourself spending large chunks of your day scrolling through your Facebook and Instagram news feeds? Are you getting bored of watching movie after movie on Netflix all day?

Here are some hijab-friendly activities you probably didn’t think of getting your hands on but really should.
