The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure dat she carries or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes,
because that at is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.
True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
Its the caring that she lovingly gives,
the passion that she shows &
the beauty of a woman only grows wit passing years
- Audrey Hepburn

Last weekend was indeed one meaningful weekend.
No, Don't get me wrong here. hehe. I did not get married last weekend :P
However, it was wonderful because I was able to meet so many magnificent ladies that
I have personally admired from afar~ It has always been a dream of mine to personally
meet them in person to tell HOW WONDERFUL they are & how they've inspired me in
so many ways.
due to the event called BLOGGERS FASHION REHAB BAZAAR
I was able to fulfill that dream of mine~ :) Alhamdulillah~
1. AMI SCHAHEERA
The First blogger & also a fashionista that has always inspired me in so many ways is our dear lady AMI SCHAHEERA. I am very sure that you girls have been following her blog & updates way back before I had. But then, lemme share with you what I think is truly special about her.
As we all know, she is currently battling against cancer as on the 17th May 2010, she was diagnosed with leukemia. The thing that I find that is truly inspiring about her is that despite the fact that she has been battling that disease for more than a year now but that never stopped her from fully utilizing & still living her life like normal. Even though she constantly needs to be on medical leaves, however she NEVER allows that to pull her spirit down. You can see it clearly from the picture above. She truly looks Amazing & very healthy~
It is people like her that always reminds me that we should NOT give up in ANY battles & that as long as we're still breathing & living, we still have got a chance to make a difference. Personally, I just love seeing her stylish dressings. She is among one of the icons of us Muslimah who is very fashionable but then she never forgets to cover her awrah~
Ami dear, if you are reading this.. please know that your strength is truly an inspiration to US ALL. So, please stay strong & InsyaALLAH ALLAH swt will reward you with so many blessings~ If you do have the time, please read this post that I wrote ♥ The Brighter Side ♥ regarding how ALLAH swt would not give us any challenges & obstacles UNLESS HE knows that you shall be able to go through well enough~ :) Even though that was the 1st time that I was able to meet you in person Ami, but then, I am grateful to be given the chance as you are indeed a wonderful lady. Ami dear, Azhak Allah sinnaka - May Allah keep you cheerful always – :)
2. Maria ELENAAssalamu ‘Alaikum, kalau tak jawab dosa, kalau jawab sayang~~
Now that's a tagline that we're very much familiar with. Tell me, who doesn't know this FUN & WITTY Maria Elena. She's someone who is VERY MUCH well known already so, I don't actually need to tell you how famous she is. Instead, i'm gonna tell you what I find that is truly UNIQUE about her :)
Honestly, I can't remember when exactly that I started to follow her as it's been soo long~ but what attracted me to her blog is how she is very much comfortable to just be herself especially in public. Now that's a trait that is to be admired! Tell me dear ones, how many of us will be able to just be ourselves in front of the people whom we do not know or just met..? I'm sure that not many of us would be able to show our true colors in front of a total stranger as we're afraid to be judged. Don't worry, this includes myself as well. That is why I can proudly say, I wish I was more like her.
When I first saw her, I was totally nerves.. I don't know why but then somehow I'd tend to get MORE nervous when I see a famous blogger that I really2 admire if compared to seeing an artist. I guess I am not really a huge fan of artists~ hehehe *weird huh*
Any how, The main reason why I brought my twins nieces along with me is because EVEN they admire Maria A LOT & have been viewing her YouTube videos over & over again. As we all know, children speaks the truth.. so when My nieces say that Maria is an amazing lady, then we really2 can't deny that SHE IS! I really2 don't care much of what others might think about her as I really2 think that she's amazing because how you see her inside those videos, that is EXACTLY HOW SHE TRULY IS WHEN you meet her in person~ *I'm really2 serious* :)
These 2ladies (shea & yanny) seriously deserves to be adored & respected~ :)
This was actually the 3rd time that I met them in person. The first was during the Women of Malaysia Fashion show event where I was the fashion stylist all thanks to Kak Sarah & Kak Amal from the Ammara boutique for giving me such opportunity & experiences that I shall never forget~ :)
When I first met Shea, I straight away told her how much I really2 admire her but what amazes me about her is that she still kept on being humble & never once did she ever looked down on others. She is 1 lady who is very creative when it comes to fashion~ She once advised me on how to become as fashionable as her~ :)
Yanny on the other hand is always so sweet & kind~ Believe me, she is truly beautiful in person~ Seriously, what I love about her is that despite the fact that I have only met her 3times but then she welcomes me like as if we've known each other for so long. This is indeed a criteria that I have always love love love about a person but rare to find~ :) & as you can see, her taste in fashion is also something that we girls wish to be more like~ There are so many other things that i just love about her but You can just see how warm she really is through this SMS:
2. HANA TAJIMA
Well, here's a lady whom I do not need to say much about because I am very sure that you girls know by now how amazing she is. But then, I'd like to say that if there's 1thing aside from her fashion sense that I just LOVE & ADMIRE about her is that she just LOVES to LAUGH & SMILE a lot~ :)
Personally, I like people who laughs a lot. After all, laughter is the best medicine ;) & Smiling can help us stay young forever~This was actually the 2nd time that I was able to get to the opportunity to meet her in person. My First was during the LIVE FASHION / LOVE MUSIC event hosted by Hana & Yuna :) I am really2 grateful that she still remembers me on that day~ Alhamdulillah.
Recently she made a video tutorial of her famous hijab style & I just thought of sharing it with you girls~ :) I've tried following that tutorial but failed miserably~ :P Hope you girls manage to try it out then boleh ajar saya pulak kn kn dear..? :) hehe.
& of course the witty Maria with her 2die hard fans ;) hehe.
*owh, people always say that my twins nieces some what resembles
the famous Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen & I gotto agree with that ;)
They're only 10years old but they actually have got a blog of their own.
Cute huh..? heehe ;) do check it out: http://nnabihah.blogspot.com/

There's 1 MORE lady that I just wish & it'll be an honour if I do get to see her in person~
It's our dearest BELLA DELLA ROSSA .
I am actually in the process of writing a post about her but *fuh* trust me,
it ain't easy to write about someone as AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL like her~ :)
