In the spirit of Ramadan and modest style, we’ve used this month to explore the true meaning of Hijab and its place in the modern world. We won’t get in to that now but what we have found a number of fierce young women all over the Internet who are representing this dress code in creative and inspiring ways! Scroll on to meet some of our favorite modest influencers.
This style maven of Palestinian and Puerto Rican descent is currently one of the biggest modest influencers in the USA and it’s easy to see why. Her keen sense of style and ability to mix fashion and modesty gives off an aesthetic that is clean and effortless.
We don’t know much about this Somali-American but once we stumbled across her Instagram account there was no going back. It’s not hard to imagine the BakedOnline team getting along with this stylish foodie who has a passion for cityscapes and earthy hues.
Not shy of colour and lavish garments, this stylish gal gives us a peak in to life in Malaysia. From food, patterned walls, cute café set ups, her favorite vintage finds to her personal take on the traditional hijab, we’re obsessed!
It’s no secret that the BakedOnline team have been shamelessly stalking this local babe for a while now. Through her love for the outdoors, photography and style it’s evident Kauthar makes a point of living modestly in all aspects of life.
A Kuwaiti fashion designer, model and blogger, Ascia has successfully accomplished ‘Girl Boss’. Constantly reinventing her look by experimenting with different turban styles and layering statement pieces, it’s easy to see why she has over 2 million followers.
Over at Baked HQ we’ve been working on some quick make up looks for the everyday gal and have finally launched a cool new feature on Aisha’s Instagram! From ‘no makeup’ makeup to a bit of shimmer, she will be doing 60 second tutorials for girls on the go. This week she features her favorite drugstore items for achieving an easy bronze eyeshadow look. We’re obsessed!

As you know, from the beginning of the week its my first wedding anniversary and in celebration our beauty topic this week focuses on the guys. Whether it’s your anniversary, his birthday or just a special occasion, searching for the perfect equilibrium between a cheesy and cool gift for your guy can be tricky for the urban girl.
Azzaro Wanted was the perfect choice for Wayne since he is cool and edgy (and hates anything remotely cheesy or romantic) I actually sent him black heart shaped balloons for our wedding anniversary instead of regular balloons which I thought were pretty rad. He loved the fragrance more than the balloons of course but thats because the scent and ethos of the fragrance fits his personality to a T.
The Wanted man is cool, off beat and lives by his own rules! He is not too focused on labels, wears what wants, does what he wants and doesn’t care what anyone else thinks! Wayne is the embodiment of the fragrance – I admire his confidence and care free nature when plunging into anything he chooses. I presented him with the fragrance on the day we shot this, our last day together, he was so into it after I explained this story of who The Wanted Man represents.
As his chosen woman I love the scent on him, it’s addictive and enticing! Azzaro Wanted can be classified as a woody-citrus-spicy fragrance. The skin is stylized with hints of Ginger, Cardamom, Prickly Juniper, Tonka Bean and Vetiver. Besides its spicy undertones, the fragrance leaves his skin perfumed for hours and lingers long after he leaves.
