A Collaboration with Collezione

Being a veiled blogger, and by veil, I don’t just mean a hijab on my head alone. I cover my face, and also wear what we call the Abaya.

I have been blogging for a while now, and I have been invited to a lot of fashion events, and projects. However,  to work with fashion brand has been something I wanted to do for the longest time. Especially, because I live in a country where wearing the veil is normal. It is not unseen, unheard or anything strange. However, the respect that it deserves to get is severely lacking in a country where the veil is a part of culture. I haven’t been wearing the veil because of the culture. It’s more to do with the my beliefs, and understanding of my religion.

However, that doesn’t mean we aren’t smart, fashionable, or anything that the media mostly tends to portray. Every woman who veils has aspirations, and dreams. The  veil doesn’t reflect incapability. It reflects strength.

It has taken me so much longer than a lot of other bloggers in the country to work with a fashion brand being in a veil. It has taken me twice or even so much more effort to get my blog to where it is today. And every situation, I have always come through it and decided to not give up inspite of all the dismissals, and rejections because I wanted to prove that being in a veil doesn’t hinder my growth. Also, that fact that I get to work on this project only meant one thing that you didn’t need to show your skin or face to the world to write an opinion on fashion. An opinion on fashion can come from anyone who has a passion towards it.

And, as such I was extremely delightful when I got to work with Collezione –  A Turkish based Fashion Brand. A brand that is affordable, and accessible to many of you. As, to me it made sense to work with a brand that is in reach to the many of you reading it today.

Have you shopped at Collezione before? If not, let me tell you that they have stores in Doha in City Centre, Ezdan Mall, Doha Festival City in Qatar. You can also find the stores in Oman, Bahrain, and UAE.

So, what would my post with a fashion brand look like? Not how to style them, not me in them, but, a couple of my favorite pieces that I picked from the store on a budget.

There was also a giveaway I did with the brand on my Instagram, and Facebook pages, so if you arent still following me on social media, make sure you go ahead and do so.

Aren’t these embroidery details on these sneakers the prettiest?

My last trip to India where I had to walk, and walk miles in a shoes – I did so in these pretty ones!

My backpack which got a lot of curious questions as to where it was from – simple, and stylish.

A little bit of fun – much smaller than the previous one in size.

And lastly but not the least, Thank you to Collezione for believing in me, and my blog.

A big shout out to my audience who have been supporting me through out my journey.

    Love this collection and I’m a new fan of Collezione!! Were the shoes that comfortable for all that walking? I need myself a fresh pair of skater shoes.

      For the price I bought it, it was quite comfortable to do all the hiking and walking that I did. Almost abused it 😅😅
      Collezione is great. Their price point is really affordable and they have stuff that are stylish for the price paid.
      However, I cannot compare it to my Skechers for sure

Do you love patterns too?
This pic is exactly as I shot off the wall at the newly opened @timerakohotel at Al Wakrah.
So fascinated to see new places coming up and the rapid changes this country has been going through and growing through

A T T I T U D EBe humble enough to admit you are not perfect but determined enough to strive to be.
More often than not you can find people who deem themselves perfect or priveleged and make you feel like your hardwork and your skills are nothing( I have been made to feel like this several times). Dont let that get to you. Your talent, knowledge and skill that you have with you are more than money can ever buy. The people you need to admire and can most definitely learn a lot from are the humble and patient ones. . .

One of the most scenic spots we went to in Macedonia and one I would love to go back again to.
The water was so chilly, the colors around so beautiful. What I love about nature is that it does not judge. It shows the same beauty to everyone around. Everyone gets the same service regardless of who they are.
Come rain or wind, it passes through everywhere with no exception. Isn't nature such a wonderful teacher?
Only if we took lessons from it! Whats the favorite lesson you have learnt from nature?

No matter how narrow minded we think a person can be, they can still see beauty if they really want to look for it. Beauty and Goodness is there in everyone just like faults. Why is it so easy to point out faults and not the good?
Can you go to sleep with a clean conscience having pointed out someone's fault? Or is the happiness through saying the right words that makes your day happy?
If so, before you write from behind the screen, before anger, jealousy or negative feelings take over your words, try and pause and choose the good words 💟 .

I sat down with the ENT specialist Dr. Agish Mathew at Aster Hospital and one of the things I learnt was more on the problem of snoring in sleep. More than 75% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (when breathing is disrupted during sleep for short periods), which increases the risk of developing heart disease.😲😲
At Aster Hospital they can provide the service of observing you and analysing your sleep patterns . More often than not a person who snores struggles to get enough oxygen into the brain while asleep and the person wakes up tired because the body works so hard while asleep😌 to get enough oxygen into the brain.
For this reason, if anyone around you has a snoring problem, dont take it lightly.
The Aster Hospital in Qatar offers the service of studying sleeping disorders overnight and making sure to diagnose the cause of it and how to rectify it.
Did you know about this before?
Share it with everyone you know!

It almost felt like I wanted to take a fluffy piece of cloud and keep it for myself
