Review | Hijab Treasures

Salaam sisters!

Today I'm doing a review on some hijab accessories by the lovely Hijab Treasures!

I was messaged by the very sweet sister behind Hijab Treasures about the review, as soon as I saw the items on their website I knew it was right up my street and a company worth reviewing mashaAllah.

I got the items in two days of them being dispatched, they came wrapped beautifully in a small brown box, the packaging was perfect to make sure everything inside was in perfect condition through transit, the wrapping paper made it that much more special because it was like receiving a gift and in my case many gifts, just looking at the packaging was exciting! Thankfully my mum didn't rip open the package as soon as it arrived which is what she tends to do lol so I got the chance to show you guys how it came.



So I'll break down which ones I got and what I thought of each one...

Pearl Flower Star Clip





When I got this I was a little confused as to how I was supposed to wear it but found 2 ways of putting it on. This is a scarf clip rather than a brooch so the fastening is a round clip at the back rather than a pin. You can either thread your scarf through the fastening and clip it to hold on side of your scarf together or you can slide the fastening under a fold in your scarf and clip it so it's more like a hijab pin/brooch.

I think you can only do the second way in certain types of scarves because if your scarf is thin or slippery the brooch tends to slide down as it isn't pinned to your scarf, but you could use straight pins to pin your hijab down and then slide the clip in above the pin, this should stop the clip sliding down.

Although the clip is wearable I would prefer both this pin and the one below to have the pin fastening at the back rather than a clip as it would be more secure and I wouldn't be worried about it falling off.

The brooch itself in design is very pretty, it has beautiful pearls and diamante stones on it adding some class to your outfit without being too bling.

Pearl Flower Lily Clip



This is again a clip like the one above so the fastening is the same. The shape of the brooch is a flower and the petals of the flower have dominates on them while the pearls in two sizes are gathered in the middle. Again another beautiful piece which I totally LOVE!

Antique Silver & Jet Crystal Butterfly Brooch



Everyone who knows me knows that I'm a really girly girl, I love diamonds and pearls, butterflies and stars and everything girly, as soon as I saw this brooch I knew it would be amazing and in real life it sure doesn't disappoint.

The black stones mean I can wear it with my black abaya's/jilbabs, even with a plain scarf this brooch would look really good, almost like a statement piece on its own you don't need to even wear any jewellery. The fastening behind this one is an ordinary pin, but the pin is long and goes right across the back so keeps the brooch stable and in place as it is quite a big brooch.

The intricate detailing on this pin make it that much more elegant and the piece is very different from things I have seen on other websites. They have this same pin in a different colours as well (pink & blue) so you have the option if you want to match it with an outfit.

Gold Glow Pearl Hijab Pin


The last pin I wanted was something a little more simple which can be worn everyday and doesn't attract much attention, this little pin does just the job, its simple, elegant and very pretty. The pearl itself is a light champagne gold colour which you don't see everywhere so is something a little unique too. The only thing I would say about this pin is that the pin is a little bendy so you need to be careful not to put too much pressure on it when putting it in your scarf. Other than that its all good!

These pins were very generously donated by Hijab Treasures to our charity event on the 30th of June (see poster at the end of this post iA) All of these pins are absolutely STUNNING, they've been hand made and are super quality so attend our charity event to get your hands on some of these iA (=

I Took My Driving Test!

Salaam all, I recently took my practical driving test and I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings of that day with you inshaAllah. On Wednesday the 18th I had my driving test. I had practiced all  I could and now the rest was down to Allah swt. I tried to keep myself calm by telling myself that whatever happens it is Allah's will and if I don't pass then maybe this time I wasn't supposed to. As I stood for Taraweeh that night my heart was pounding as I asked Allah to keep me safe on the road and also for me to pass. After praying I felt a lot calmer and soon enough fell asleep. Woke up for Suhoor, prayed Fajr and tried to go back to sleep. All I could think about was how much I wanted to pass, not because I really want to drive or anything, but just because taking lessons was taking up a lot of my time and money that I could spend on other things. As well as taking up my parents time and my uncle's. I got a couple of hours of sleep and woke up bright and

Review | Unique Hijab's

Assalaamu alaikum! Sorry for going AWOL for a while there, my netbook was down so I couldn't write blog posts and post pictures )= Alhamdulillah it's working now, a BIG JazkaAllah khair to the computer fixer upper. Anyway today I have a review for an amazing hijab company in the states! =D I received 3 scarves from them yesterday, a thin scarf, a crinkle scarf and a diamante jersey scarf, they're all super cool but first I'd like to tell you a little more about the company itself. Unique Hijabs actually started on ebay and then launched it's own website in 2009 their website is: www.uniquehijabs.com They sell a huge variety of hijabs and accessories such as under scarves, sleeves and brooches. One of the things I liked about this company is something that they've written on their facebook page, which I can actually relate to as I'm sure you can too: Food for thought and Unique Hijab Facts, to help you make your next purchasing decision wisely.

Beauty Review | FW Beauty Skincare

I finally got around to writing up this much requested post on the products I bought from FWBeauty, the reason I haven't written something sooner is because I believe it's important to be using a skincare product for a while before reviewing it, as most skincare products don't give significant results after just one or two uses. I've been following the founders of FW Beauty Fatiha and Yasmine's journey online for a while now and I love seeing how successful they are becoming. They talk about their products with so much passion and confidence that I had to meet them in person and try out their skincare products. If you've been following me on Instagram you'll know that I attended the Muslim Lifestyle Show a few weeks ago and picked up the FW Beauty skincare products that I've been dying to try ever since I saw the glowing reviews. They had everything at a reduced price and I picked up the clear complexion bar, the gold elixir brightening facial
