OOTD; the green lantern says thank you!

Salam alaikum girls!

If you've seen my posts on instagram and Facebook, you would know that my mother is planning to visit an orphanage in Bandung, Indonesia on the 24th! She was so excited about the goodie bags she planned to prepare for the kids so I thought, hey, why not use sghijabgirl to publicise about this and we can find sponsors so that the kids will get more stuff in their goodie bags?

Initially, I didn't set my hopes up high so we agreed, okay let's just ask for Kitkats. So I wrote a post asking if anybody wanted to sponsor Kitkats. Simple request right? There were no responses at first and I've got to admit I was a teeny weeny bit disheartened.

Then, with God's will and because I truly believe that its these orphans' rizq I've now raised more than 1k guys! I am truly truly truly happy and am so grateful to all the people who have stepped up and offered to chip in (: 

I think it meant so much to me especially because for the first time, I've managed to use sghijabgirl as a medium to allow others to gain rewards from Allah swt and that, this is no longer just a fashion blog. I believe greater things can be accomplished and I really do hope I won't just stop here.

This definitely goes in my highlights-of-2013-jar (I keep one because my friend suggested that I should write down happy happy things, put it in a jar and open it at the end of 2013 hehe) so yes, in you go! 

"And they give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the captive." [Al-Quran - 76:8]

Narrated Sahl bin Sa'd: The Prophet said, "I and the person who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this," putting his index and middle fingers together.  [Sahih Bukhari, Book 73:34]

Thank you to those who have donated generously. 
I am forever grateful to you guys (:

I've made sure that my mother will take pictures of the kids so insyAllah, when she gets back from the trip, I'll upload it here so you can see those smiley faces ya! 

Alright, ending this entry with a green green outfit.

turquoise shawl; kaffah
button collar; taiwan
eiffel tower blouse; bangkok
green pants; zara
black wedges; taiwan (you can try h&m, i just saw them just now)

I am madly in love with this button collar!!! I'm sure one can easily DIY this but I am hopeless at sewing so this one was perfection. I've received requests on how I wore my hijab with this collar so I will probably do a tutorial! I've been wearing this style for quite some time now because its so so so easy!  

and this is, hands down, my favourite blouse ever. All time favourite! I am crazy over eiffel towers so the moment I saw this blouse, I was like, I'VE GOT TO HAVE IT :D

Hope you liked this entry!

Much love friends,
