Beauty Bargain Dupe - Tangled Hair Teezer

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Tangle Teezers are usually more than £10 in Boots. Before I bought my original one in purple I was a little skeptical of paying that much for a plastic brush. However once I got it, it was really handy and to me worth it. It's great for wet hair, easy on knotted hair if you brush your little ones hair and has even gone through my personal experience of severe sick-bed hair (we've all been there!)

If you know me, I am one for a bargain and one night I stumbled on this dupe on ebay. Intrigued, I bought it. Sometimes hubby uses my brushes so I thought i'd get him his own, "his & hers" and all that.

The real Tange Teezer is on the left with signature and all; the dupe is on the right

Looking at them, there isn't much difference. The black is a plain jane but that doesn't effect how it works. They both have the same amount of bristle columns, inter-changing tall-short lengths and I can't see or feel any difference in size or weight when it's in my hand.

Please excuse the little fluffies

The ebay listing is here and it cost just £1.15 with free postage and packaging, and although it's from China it didn't take that long to arrive either.

Not sponsored, just being helpful if you're in need of one and a little bit skint!

All year Gift Guide

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


I have always wanted to write this type of post for Eid. I love gift giving, and finding great product's or little bargain's which are great for goodie bag's, or for lack of a better phrase "stocking filler" type thing's. The only problem is that I just didn't have the time to search for item's, think of idea's and so on around Ramadan and Eid, this year.

Everybody loves receiving gift's (unless your name is Sheldon Cooper) it's one of the good manner's which maintain's and strengthen's the bond between each other. Giving gift's is also sunnah! Don't forget that are certain etiquette's when giving and receiving, enjoy this short clip.



So I thought i'd go ahead and compile a gift guide sort of post, to give at any time of the year! I think it should be done more often actually, spontaneous gift's, which personally are more fun, rather than the typical expected gift's just on special occasion's. I'm not saying those gift's are less special, it's just that a surprise is really comforting from family/friend's as you know they have been thinking about you. Or perhaps you may find something you want to treat yourself to, we all deserve a little something-something, every now and then!

It goes without saying that these completely depend on the receiver's taste and how well you know that person, whether you are the mother, friend, in-law, student. Think of them individually, and of what experience's you've had together. 
What do they like? did he recently move out? did she pass her driving test? having a baby? Should it be a little "saw it and thought of you" gift, a gag gift, or something special?
 A great gift usually has personal meaning. Also think about if you want to spend a little or a lot.

This is purely for inspiration, and most are what you could use to put in a hamper/basket, instead of one big gift.
