August Favorites

Hello everyone!

Here is our monthly favorite from August. I know it’s a little late but at least it’s only the beginning of September, and I enjoyed creating a favorite list last month so had to continue.

Favorite Hijab/Scarf– A simple black unbranded scarf that I dressed up and down throughout the month. See more pics of the hijab here, here, and here.

Netflix TV Binge– Orange is the New Black. We finished watching season one and can’t wait for next season to premier.

Favorite Movie– The Wolverine & Elysium both movies were thumbs up for us. Especially Elysium which had a very futuristic yet, original concept.


Flowers of the Month – Fresh flowers from Whole Foods they were so aromatic that even the husband noticed.

And these beautiful beauties the husband surprised me with (local florists).


Makeup Beauty Product- MAC lickable lipstick & Benefit Watt’s Up. The lipstick is such a fun color that I layer with mahogany lip liner from Mac and usually a light brown matte/semi matte shade.
The Watt’s Up highlighter I’ve been using for a couple of months and can’t get over how perfectly it works.


Favorite Food– Catered food from Usmania restaurant and local cook at the family Eid party we attended. You can check out pics from the party here.

Favorite Dessert– Chocolate chip cookie pizza from Lou Malnati’s. We’ve had this dessert a few times before and it’s always a favorite.


Favorite Hijabi Outfit Of the Day– Check out outfit post here.

Favorite Couple Shot– Taken during the family Eid party. See more fun pics here.

Favorite Couple Moment– Going to Navy Pier on the cta to Cirque Shanghai, the husband turns around and tells me “you dazzle me.” I thought it was cute and told him I’m making a mental note to use that sometime.

Shopping Haul Favorite Find for the Month– Clear clutch from Forever 21


Wishlist Item Haul– DSLR Camera the Canon EOS Rebel SL. We finally took the plunge and joined the DSLR bandwagon. We couldn’t be happier with our new baby!


Thank you for visiting and please share some of your favorites for last month.
