Turban in training

Dear beautiful readers,

Todays lookpost is one of my modest looks I am still experimenting with, as mentioned in a previous post- it turns out to be quite a challenge but that doesn’t stop me from persisting. My idea is to find a style that I’m comfortable with, and most importantly, something I can throw together quickly! As a mum, I cannot spend a lot of time primping before going out, so a quick and easy routine is what I need.
This includes, beauty, makeup and even deciding what to wear - I literally need to be able to grab and go! (heehee). I thought it would be an easy journey, to just transition into - but alas it is not! I am so inspired by so many other hijabi and modest women in the world and they’re oh so stylish too. 
I continue on my journey….

I’ve paired my monochrome maxi with a ZARA shirt and a trusty t-shirt.

Outfit details:

ZARA denim shirt
Mango Hollywood t-shirt
Nakau Collections skirt
Country Road leggings
Country Road leather pumps
Scarfstop Scarf
Trenery bag
Earrings old
Swarovski Necklace old

Ciao for now, 

RuBe xoxo

Chilled cat print

Hello lovely readers!

December is upon us and Christmas is all over the stores, this means the holiday season has begun. Before I can embark on any fun filled activities with my now unoccupied kids, I needed to get through numerous school obligations. The week passed in a blur of awards ceremonies, school and sports,  as was evident on my Instagram feed this weekend.  And a very important occasion, Ameer (my middle child) had his junior dance on Friday! It’s aways a time of mixed emotions, as it means another year has passed and your babies are moving on in the world. They’ve grown another year, learned so many things and developed even more of their individual personalities.

Parenthood, the journey of nurturing and growing young souls and sending them out into the world. At times, it is richly rewarding, at others, maddeningly frustrating! To those starting out on this rollercoaster, savour and enjoy every moment, every hug and every achievement.

Todays lookpost is a chilled casual look with an oversized T-shirt and Converse sneakers. 

My baby, Ameer styled by Mum!

Just before leaving home…

I’m wearing:

Sass T-shirt (Zando)
ZARA slim jeans
Converse sneakers
Lovisa Earrings
Sass Diva (Zuri) Midi Rings
Necklace gifted
Rare and fleeting Yemaya mani :-) 

Ciao for now,

RuBe xoxo
