Spring scarves from HijabGirl

I know many of you may already get the email notices from HijabGirl, but I can't help putting the info out there. On top of the fact that HG now carries Capster athletic hijabs, they now have a gorgeous new selection of spring scarves. I'm in love with the new floral prints, available in a wide variety of colors. I'm particularly keen on the dark and light purple ones, the dark turquoise, the gray, and the pink. These make girly just gorgeous! ^_^

Is this a circus and nobody told me?

Or did I fall off the freak show truck? Do I have a third eyeball on my head? What? Grrr...

Okay, I know this is a bit random. I'm just venting (again) about being stared at. All. The. Freaking. Time. It's annoying more than anything, but slightly creepy, too.

The local nationals are the worst. And the ANA/ANP/whatever guys are also bad about it. Granted, there aren't many females here (big surprise).

Yeah, I got it that women don't go out uncovered here. Many of them still wear the burqa. Army regs don't let me wear hijab. But that's no excuse for all these men to STARE AT ME.

So lower your gaze!
