Review | The Islamic Greeting Card Store

Another review today...! Of some products from the awesomeness that is The Islamic Greeting Card Store I've reviewed this company before and still love the company and their product, you can check out that review here The Islamic Greeting Card Store specialises in greeting cards for all occasions, from Wedding, Hajj/Umrah to congratulations for completing the Quran and random cards to just show your appreciation to your loved ones.

So I decided to fulfil my promise and finish my coverage of the Urban Muslim Woman Show 2013. In this part I will share the rest of my photo's a feedback for the event that took place last month.

As we walked into the venue we were met with a warm atmosphere and the place buzzing with excitement and activity. There were loads of lovely stalls showcasing businesses run by women.

She is a really lovely sister who is trying to set up her own tax and accounting business. MashaAllah here is a link to her website for more info if you are interested
