Assalaamu alaikum ladies!
I haven't done a review in a while soooo today I'm going to tell you about this little gem Samias Treasures (= [Click on the name to go straight to their FB page!]
I was sent 2 hijabs and 2 brooches from their collection to review...
First up are these gorgeous brooches!
One thing that struck me when I first took these out of the package was just how sparkly they were, I actually struggled to take a good picture of them close up because the flash kept bouncing off the stones.
The first brooch has a small in at the back which you attach to your clothes, it's in the shape of a ribbon with a bow at the end..very pretty indeed.
The second pin is a kilt pin with diamonte's and a bow which has two dangly strands that move. I found the pin was a little blunt at the end which made it hard to get through my hijab, this isn't really a problem but can leave holes in delicate scarves, however, this can be easily fixed by using a nail file to sharpen the pin and is something I have done with similar pins in the past.
These are just two from their range of stunning brooches and jewellery so don't forget to check out the rest of the range iA.
The first of the two hijabs is a blue polka dot one.
I absolutely love this maxi hijab, the colour is beautiful and gives your outfit a fun retro look. Floral patterns are everywhere and have been for the last couple of summers so I wanted to see something different and unique and I'm loving polka dots at the moment. The hijab is a maxi hijab so is very wide and long giving you great coverage. The scarf is thin and lightweight, made from cotton so the hijab is perfect for this spring/summer. This hijab also comes in a nude colour.
The second hijab is a maxi crinkle hijab with polka dots and bows.
Again this grey & black hijab is a maxi hijab so good coverage, it's a crinkle hijab so wont sit flat on your head but will give your hijab a bit of volume, if you would rather not have volume in your hijab you could always iron out the crinkles. Half of the hijab has polka dots on it and the other half has bows so the possibilities of what you can do with it are endless! Because it's a maxi hijab if you fold the hijab in half and want o only show the polka dots you can do so without the scarf being too narrow. This hijab is shorter than the blue one shown above but is easier to wrap if you're not used to dealing with so much fabric. This hijab comes in black, navy blue and pink colour too, to check out the pictures of the other colours in this range click here
The great thing about Samias treasures hijabs is the amazing offer they have on them. You can buy them for £4 each or 3 for £10. I haven't come across another online hijab store with such a good offer. They also have great offers on everyday straight pins which you can purchase for 50p -£2 click here to check that offer out!
The customer service from Samias Treasures is very good mashaAllah, you can get in contact with them via facebook and the sister usually replies pretty quick.
The packaging was quite standard but not bad, all the items came wrapped separately and in great condition. Alhamdulillah I cannot fault anything to do with the postage and delivery.
I would recommend this company to sisters looking for quality hijabs at affordable prices. So if you would like to check out their other hijabs or even purchase the items in this review click here and like their page....https://www.facebook.com/pages/Samias-Treasures-Page/172074799539184
