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

Hijab Style's To Suit Your Face Shape

So you're trying to follow a hijab tutorial but your hijab just doesn't look like the person doing the tutorial, you get frustrated because you can't get it right. Well to be honest I don't think it's so much you getting it wrong, it may just be that the hijab style being demonstrated looks better on the person doing the tutorial due to the shape of that person's face. Just like when you need to get a haircut, when styling your hijab, you have to consider the shape of your face. I've had many people tell me that hijab doesn't 'suit' them because their face is too round, or their cheeks are too chubby, which is the reason why they don't wear hijab, in my opinion hijab suits everyone, you just have to figure out how to wear it to suit you. Contrary to what many think, hijab wasn't prescribed to make you look 'ugly' it is to make you look modest. In this post I have tried to look at some face shapes and find some hijab style i

10 tips for your online hijab company

Assalaamu alaikum all! I have been having idea's about this post for a while but just didn't how to get my thoughts together so I'm not sure if this will be any good but here it goes anyway! So I don't run an online business of my own, I don't have a marketing degree nor am I an expert in running businesses but I've done my fair share of online shopping and have done reviews for online companies so I will give some tips from a consumer point of view inshaAllah, but please remember these are merely my views and not guaranteed to work Tip 1: Be Unique Do your research and check out other companies out there. At the moment the number of 'online hijab companies' have been growing and there are sooo many companies selling the exact same scarves & accessories claiming to be unique. If you want to be successful think up something different or take a unique angle on the hijab business idea. Brainstorm, pilot your ideas, find out what really
