Assalamualaikum and happy weekend 🙂
As I’m going to say here that I am lack with self-confidence. Just like in other post before (please check ’em out), I have a problem which puts me in a situation where I’m screwed and socially-awkward. I am an introvert. Don’t talk too much and only responds or take actions with things that I think very important to me but don’t worry because normally, I used to be like that when I am surrounding with unknown people. Just blend in with them? Nope. That is so not me. Sometimes I think it is a very big problem because can you imagine, just because of my shyness, it would be like,
I was robbed and now I don’t have any money to take a cab or bus to get home. I am so shy to ask for anybody’s help. Maybe I just can walk home by myself. Yeah, that’s the best.
Do you know what I mean right? So I decided to conduct an experiment to gain more points in my confidence test. As you can see, new stuffs can play a role as a booster for confidence and for me, it is all about how you presenting yourself outdoor. Can see what I’m trying to tell here? Its our attire.
I’m a Malay-Muslim girl and wearing a hijab is compulsory in my religion. Since I was in primary school, I’ve been taught to wear them wherever I go except at home. For me, its function like a shield for women, covering the aurah and also protecting our hair from UV light, scientifically.
All my life I’ve been sticking to the only hijab style which is Tudung Bawal in Malay or in more universal name, square hijab. It is made of any chosen and types of clothes that will be cut 45″ x 45″ in squared. It is a simple hijab that mostly wore in Malaysia but normally, cotton will be used as the materials and need to be ironed when you want to wear it. Quite fussy. It is my all time favourite hijab but I have to admit that it waste a lot of time to get it properly wore (the awning is the hardest part!). Gratefully, now there are lots of square hijab that used other kinds of materials which allow you to wear them easily such as cotton slik, cotton crepe, chiffon etc. So you don’t have to iron them anymore !
For my task, I’m choosing a new style to get a new personality or image. Satin shawl is my choice. Shawl is one of the most famous hijab style nowadays and can be styled in many ways according to your comfort. It is pretty simple and still, you can get your aurah covered. Before this, I don’t have any courage and confidence to wear them but now, its time. It is time to make some changes albeit I’m being so scrupulous about what I’m wearing.
Actually, it started when my cousin sells this satin shawl. When I feel and touch the material, suddenly I’m in love. On-the-spot-changed feelings mixed with my want-to-try feelings. In the picture above, I’m wearing the blue-black colour and also available in emerald green, golden brown and royal blue. One more thing, what catches my first impression is the Jawi letter or in Al-Quran known as Alif Maksurah : ى pattern on it. It is very unusual and rare among other type of shawls I’ve seen before and that is why I bought three from four of them 😛 Girls and shopping cannot be separated.
You can see the design’s details and buy them HERE. Also, you will get more discounts for more purchases. Its my cousin’s and he just started his business so can you support him? Check them out, guys! 😛
NOW, I’ve managed to be more confident then before but remember this is just a beginning. More tasks to come. Build your confidence with what you’re donned with. See you in the next Confidence Booster’s entry 🙂
