June Collective review

Hello readers! I know many of you are now beginning to get a little bored with my multiple reviews, inshallah from now on I am controlling what I get and whether I will review businesses on my blog or not as I have so many things I want to post about in terms of beauty and fashion, etc.
Nonetheless, today I will introduce you to many amazing businesses as always which I've taken the time to review and photograph. Enjoy my little review on each company :)

The Pinned Veil

Specializing in affordable quality hijabs and accessories and also a variety of higher-quality handmade hijabs and jewellery, The Pinned Veil are a lovely facebook/instagram shop made to feed your hijabi necessities. They sent me a couple of their lovely vibrant hijabs to try out, here is a photo. 

Two printed hijabs and two plain hijabs

All of the hijabs are maxi which is perfect for me, the colours are vibrant and the prints are quite unique. The quality of the hijabs is also perfect. (To see photos of me wearing some of these head over to instagram and follow me @lifelongpercussion). Also I've recently noticed that they've started selling jersey hijabs which is very rare in the UK, so make sure you check them out!

HK Scarves

HK Scarves are a small online company based in London that specialize in selling on-trend, affordable hijabs in every style you can imagine! I promise. The lovable Habibah sent me some of her designs which I'm sure you'll love as much as I do. I've had previous experience with HK Scarves so I know how good their quality and customer service is.

Five beautiful hijabs; Classic Blue Paisly (£5), Nude Sparkle (£4), Plain Maroon (£4), Leopard Pink (£5), Blue Bobble (£5)

Love the packaging!

I'm very fond of the quality of their items and the transaction has been lovely. The hijabs are so wearable and vibrant. My favourite out of them at the moment is the nude sparkle hijab which I actually mentioned in my May Favourites post which you can check out here. Make sure you hop onto their facebook page and Instagram!

The Modest Collection 

The Modest Collection sell all the essentials for a hijabi; from hijab pins to hijabs to jewellery to your very own bespoke headpieces! They sent me some stunning hijabs, hijab pins and my very own bespoke Swarovski headpiece.

For more photos of the items please check out my Instagram @lifelongpercussion ; Twitter @lifelongpercuss and Facebook

I love the hijabs and hijab pins I recieved, especially the headpiece which I recently posted many photos with (instagram/facebook/twitter) and many people have loved the headpiece on! You can actually email The Modest Collection and request to design your very own headpiece, it will then be hand made and sent to you. I loved the personal touch in it and how professional the whole process was.

Blackdiiamonds are a hijab and modest clothing fashion webshop based in the Netherlands. I was very excited to be sent there items as they seem very fashionable and trendy, and I loved their chic website. I was sent a YSL T-shirt, two infinity rings, a ninja underscarf and lion necklace. I fell in love with all of them! I've worn them all and love the fit of the T-shirt, I LOVE the rose gold and silver infinity rings and the lion necklace!

They even have their own tags which I loved!
