Review | AZiN (Tasbih & pins)

Assalaamu alaikum WR WB!

Todays post is a review for AZiN a new company selling handmade hijab pins and tasbih's (prayer beads).

Azin comes from the Arabic word for 'Jewellery', they are a new facebook business selling exclusive hijab pins and 33 count prayer beads. Why 33? some may ask...
Abu Huraira RA reported that Fatima RA came to Allah's Apostle Sallallaho Alaihey wasallam and asked for a servant and told him of the hardship of household work. He (SAW) said: "You would not be able to get a servant from us. May I not direct you to what is better than the servant for you? Recite Subhaana Allah thirty-three times, al- Hamdu li-Allah thirty-three times and Allah-o-Akbar thirty-four times as you go to bed."
Sahih Muslim Book 035, Number 6580
Hence 33 beads on the tasbih for anyone who didn't know. I was fortunate enough to receive products from their first collection and my first impressions?....'MASHAALLAH!' The opening collection of tasbih's is limited in number (one of each) and I was sent the only design they made 2 of.

So I'll get over the technical stuff like delivery, P&P, customer service before I introduce the amazing pins and tasbih!

The sister behind Azin e-mailed me to let me know when the products will be posted, alhamdulillah the delivery was very fast. The packaging was super cute in white paper and wrapped with a pink bow (my obsession with finishing touches).

The tasbih came in a cute pink organza pouch and the pins came on a business card with pink ribbon. I love the way they did the packaging (see pic above), most companies send their pins in organza pouches and this is the first time I have seen someone utilise their business card in this clever way. I think I will keep the pins like this for a while instead of putting them in my pin cushion because they are clearly displayed and I can just pick one out when I want to match it with my clothing.

There is free first class p&p on orders over £5 and a £1.20 charge for those under £ yeah great value for money seeing as how quickly they will arrive. (international customers please get in touch with AZiN for more info on your p&p)

The company is a pleasure to deal with so don't hesitate to get in touch with them should you have any problems or queries.

Ok now on to the awesome stuff she sent (=

All of the pins are made with absolute top class quality, they are sharp so they wont ruin your scarves as you try to get them in, the descriptions of each one are accurate to the 'T' and the attention to detail on every bead is impeccable. Each and every pin is classy and elegant, these pins are perfect for anyone who wants to keep things simple and elegant. One thing I would recommend to the company is maybe make the pin a little longer (this might just be a personal preference) but I felt my scarf would feel more secure if the pin part (without the beads) was a bit longer.

33 Crystal Glass Beads
Dark Turquoise Cracked Glass Spacers

I love this beautiful, delicate tasbih. I don't usually use a tasbih or carry one with me because I tend to use my fingers but this tasbih is just stunning and I think I will keep it with me as a reminder to remember Allah in my everyday activities. It's lightweight and I can't get over how delicate it looks (by delicate I don't mean it will break or fall apart). Again the attention to detail on all their tasbih's is amazing and the tasbih is probably one of my favourite things they sent me. Just in time for extra supplications and remembrance of Allah during Ramadan.

Right now Azin are holding a little competition/giveaway for Ramadan, to be in with a chance of winning one of their tasbih's all you have to do is 'like' their facebook page and 'like' your favourite what are you waiting for? Closing date is 30th of July!

Please check out their facebook page for more stunning pins & tasbihs (and better pictures of these), you can pay via paypal and instructions on how to order are under each picture in their photo album.

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

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

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
