Fabulous Finds: Scarves from Rubi

Browsing through the racks in Cotton On, we found two beautiful long scarves from their sister brand, Rubi.

The scarves are made of thin and cooling material, 100% viscose. These scarves are the size of huge maxi scarves that provides tons of coverage and volume.

The prints are amazing, somewhere between the lines of florals and abstract design. You’d have to see it to believe it!

They retail at S$18.95 so get them now!


Be wary of your hijab pins though as these scarves will definitely snag. Watch our DIY video on how to prevent holes on your precious finds.

Fabulous Finds: Spanish Hijabs (Part I)

We ventured to Spain this past December and brought back tons of goodies! Quite surprised at the massive amounts of hijabs that were available!

There were a whole range of designs from the simple basic prints to the “loud” ones. We were spoilt for choice to say the least. The hijabs that we purchased were along the lines of crinkled and maxis which we didn’t think can be found here in Singapore. Prices range from € 3 to 6 and are made of a mix between cotton, polyester and viscose.

Opposite the bus stop to Medina Az-Zahra, there was a bazaar that stretched along the whole street that carried almost everything ranging from socks, perfumes, food and bags. We found this cute little number tucked inside one of the stalls.

At the El Rastro Market (on Sundays), we came across tons of stalls that have beautiful hijabs and couldn’t resist picking up a few. We could’ve spent all day, shoulder to shoulder with the thousands of people who flock there weekly.
