Review | Amalia Collection

Assalaamu alaikum all!

So I recently contacted Amalia collection, a company based in Australia about a review and was sent some products from them to write about for you guys =D

The video explaining the products is uploading so I will add that at the end if you can't see it right now. Here is just a brief summary of what I thought of different aspects of the company...

-Delivery

The package arrived in roughly 8 days since it was posted and mashAllah that is super fast considering it is coming from Australia.

-Customer Service

I have to say Sr Amalia is one of the nicest people I have spoken to through e-mail/FB messaging, she got back to me in reasonable time and explained why there was a little delay in getting the products posted, since the last message she sent me. I'm pretty sure all customers will be met with this level of kindness and good service iA.

-Products

They have a wide variety of really unique products that you wont find everywhere, they sell things that make life as a hijabi that much easier. The variety comes not only in the number of different products they have but also the number of different colours and types of each product.

Overall the company has bee a joy to work with, they have some really amazing products mashaAlah and I wish them all the success inshaAllah.

Please do go and check out their facebook page here: Amalia Collection
And also have a look at their website: http://www.amalia-collection.com

Below are some pictures of the products I reviewed (=

Assalaamu alaikum sisters!

So this is a little outfit of the day post, nothing 'wow' because I was just going to uni...I called it mad as a hatter because of the necklace, it's a little tea cup and teapot which reminded me of the mad hatter scene in Alice in wonderland.

Cardigan- Primark

Review | Unique Hijab Pins- Hijab Accessory

Salaam girls,

I was recently sent a hijab accessory from unique hijab pins, I have reviewed them and their products before so this post is going to just show you just a few of the endless number of ways you can wear the hijab brooch/chain.....














There is so much you can do with this hijab brooch chain. The 2 brooches at the ends are detachable (like a necklace clasp) so you can wear them seperatly and my fav of the two is the round one. Both the broches are really lightweight compared to other brooches like this, they almost feel like plastic or a lightweight metal.

This accessory is a perfect alternative to a necklace, as hijabi's we don't really get to wear necklaces because they don't show when you drape your scarf over you chest. You can keep experimenting with it a come up with something new and innovative each time.

I was also sent another shorter chain which you can attach to the same brooches, here are a few pics on how you could wear a shorter chain brooch....see the video at the end for a little demo on how to detach and adapt your hijabrooch from Unique Hijab Pins (=








Also available in gold it's an ideal hijab accessory for weddings and sister parties!

To purchase this accessory please go to www.unique-hijab-pins.com or check out Unique hijab pins on FB

Salam!


Here is another review for you..this time it's a super new company called Dazzle A-Head Hijab Boutique. Please watch the video for a detailed review of the company and find a quick summary as well as some pictures of the hijabs below!



Quality of Hijabs:

Brilliant quality, no faults found. You will have to be careful with the glossy one and silk one as they are more delicate but should last you a very long time.

Style of Hijabs:

Very different and unique hijabs, hand picked chic, elegant and stylish hijabs.

Price of Hijabs:

Reasonable prices, very affordable. Well worth the prices.

Glossy- £4.99
Silk- £5.99
Ruffle- £6.00

Customer Service:

Amazing customer service mashaAllah. Such a friendly sister, one of the best customer service experiences I have had.

Postage Costs:

Standard UK- £2.50
Europe- £3.99
International-  £4.99

Delivery Time:

Was sent on the day of the order via Royal Mail and I recieved it the very next day. (Of course this may vary depending on where you are located and how well royal mail is running)

Ease of ordering:

You have to e-mail dazzle_a-head_hijab_boutique@hotmail.co.uk with the name of product you would like and the address you want it to be sent to. Payments taken via paypal. Website coming soon inshaAllah.
 
Variety of collection:

All the collections are very different from each other. They are hand picked to fall into at least one of the categoreis: Chic, Elegant or Stylish. Sr Iman never sells anything she wouldn't wear herself. New collections coming soon iA. When a collection is out of stock it does not get re-stocked to make way for new products unless there is a big customer demand for a particular hijab.

Overall an AMAZING company mashaAllah I wish Sister Iman all the success, she is doing a super job with Dazzle A-Head Hijab Boutique already.
