Last December I went home to Jogja for a holiday with my family. It was an end-of-semester holiday actually and I spent most of the days with my kids while my husband came later. We stayed at my mom's house which used to be the place I live through my younger years.
Coming home and enjoy the atmosphere of romanticism of the past is always wonderful. I took my sons to places I'd like them to see so that they can learn something new. And they would be able to get to know their mom better. I showed them my high school, the local library I used to go, even my elementary school reports. L O L.

On that beautiful morning I took a walk with my sons to local fisheries where they can see ponds and paddy fields. I put my pink batik dress and a Plain Deluxe Hijab from Hidden Pearls on. The hijab covered me beautifully. Even my mom asked me about it. Alhamdulillaah *smile*
The hijab is soft, smooth, looks expensive and non see-through. I asked my son to take the pictures of me in the hijab and I put one of them in my Instagram. It looks so perfect with the dress. It is also long and wide, about 85 x 200 cm. We call this kind of hijab here as 'pashmina'. It needs some pins to put on. I wore an inner on my head so that the hijab would stay perfectly. And it stays that way. For daily uses I wear instant hijab. I have several pashminas too for special occasions such as go to wedding party or gathering.

I got this hijab, Plain Deluxe Hijab, from Hidden Pearls UK to review. I chose two gorgeous hijabs from the same series. They are Spanish Pink and Azzure Blue. I love plain hijabs because they are easy to combine with any colors of dresses. Trust me.
These hijabs are 100% polyester. They are really soft, easy to wash, easy to dry.
There are many different colors you can choose from. There are pink, red, white, green, blue and many more. Each color comes in several tones. I myself was a little confused to choose only two out of those abundant lovely colors. It wasn't easy, guys. I clicked and clicked until my son said, "Haven't you clicked that one before, Mom??" LOL.
Give it a try. Go to Hidden Pearls website and choose your favorite hijabs. Not only plain hijabs, you can also find hijabs with patterns, silk hijabs, abayas, hijab pins and Islamic gifts with worldwide shipping.
You can also take a look at Hidden Pearls Instagram in @hiddenpearls, Pinterest in @hiddenpearlsuk and Twitter @hiddenpearlsuk for more information. Go get one and experience that hijabi feeling!
