    Jakarta Modest Fashion Week (2017)

    Dear Reader, Jakarta Modest Fashion Week took place from July 26 to July 29. This fashion week is under a collection of five that happen worldwide under Modanisa Fashion Week. It was an eventful few days, filled with fashion shows, talk shows and so much more. Many Muslim influencers and bloggers attended and showed us what was happening behind the scenes, and what they thought of the looks. Unfortunately, I didn’t go. So I watched behind the screens and tried to soak in the amazing designs and styles of all the looks coming down the runway. First of all, for those who don’t know, modest is a term to describe…

    the sunday sketch – two

    here’s another mini sunday sketch! just another lil sketch of a girl sitting and looking cute. this time i used the tape for aesthetic purposes… and because i didn’t wanna mess up the face again. i used my muji gel pen in 0.38, and the muji washi tape to help create this piece. my sketchbook is the xl canson mix media sketchbook. if anyone wants to start doing mini sketches on sundays, tag me as well as the hashtag #thesundaysketch. can’t wait to see what will come with this if the future! samsta<3

    the flowers in her hair

    prompt: she loved her garden and there was nothing she found more relaxing than spending a morning there (descriptive writing) The first beam of light for the day was shown through a window displaying a fairly moderate sized bedroom with a single bed, a desk and a couple of filled bookshelves ranging of books of all kinds. A teenage girl should live here perhaps, with her desk filled up with pencils and papers and textbooks all scattered around and Polaroid’s of a girl and her friends. Alas, the bed is made and the window seems ajar above the window, swaying back and forth by a sudden breeze. Right below seems to be…
