If you’ve been active on Instagram lately, you are bound to have come across The Hayaa Box – if not, let me fill you in!

The Hayaa Box is South Africa’s first subscription box for Muslim women. Each month, you can expect a beautifully wrapped box containing one of THB’s signature maxi scarves (in a gorgeous colour, of course!), at least one sample-sized (international or local) makeup, skincare or lifestyle product and to top it all of, matching hijab accessories to complement the scarf of the month.

Will you be attending Decorex Durban? 

Even though I love fashion, interior décor and design never really interested me – until recently. 

In 2013, I decided to redecorate my bedroom and ever since then, I haven’t stopped looking at various IG pages and Pinterest boards that focus on interior décor and design – there’s just something about looking at all of those beautiful homes, rooms and closets and becoming hopeful that one day, you too could have your fabulous interiors featured on an IG page or Pinterest board.

Update: Veiled Beauty on break

Hiiiii guys,

I hope you are all doing well!

As you may know, the month of Ramadaan is a day or so away and in order to fully prepare, I won’t be uploading a new post today and tomorrow. Most likely, I will be back on Friday with a new post, but if not, you can look forward to a new one on Monday.

During the month of Ramadaan, my posts will be more concise and to the point which will allow us both to spend more time praying and less time compiling/reading blog posts – we need to make the most of this month dearies 😘.

So, that’s basically all that I needed to say. I will hopefully be back on Friday or Monday, so until then, Ramadaan Mubarak and do remember me and my family in your duas!

Location, location, location!

For me, online shopping is all about the simplicity, the ease and the overall no effort that it takes to shop online. Gumtree is one of those sites, that allows you this ease with the added benefit of competitive prices and sometimes, the opportunity to purchase unique and special items. If you remember, last week I introduced you to shopping via Gumtree’s mobile app (and even shared a little secret about a nifty little makeup caddy) and this week it’s all about the ‘Location’ feature that Gumtree has recently introduced.
