Eid is just around the corner, and I know a lot of us are only starting to realise we’re now halfway through Ramadan alhamdulillah.
We’re not big gift givers in my family, but I wanted to put together a list of Small Business on Instagram who might be up your street that you don’t already know about.
Not all the businesses featured are having a sale for Eid, and for some of the stocks are running out fast!
Even if you don’t buy for someone else, there’s someone who always deserves to be treated and that’s you!
You’ve done amazing this Ramadan and it’s about time we celebrate Eid looking, feeling and smelling our best!

Facebook Marketplace is one of those things those of us with a Facebook account (if you still have one after the whole Cambridge Analytica scandal?!) have either accidentally clicked on, or actively seek out.
Hailed as the FREE way to get rid of your unwanted goods, it’s a great way to pick up a bargain close to home.
I would argue however, it is not great for sellers, and a horrible way to sell goods and services unless you want to be ripped off. More on that later.

The Body Shop Seaweed Oil Balancing Clay Mask | Review
The Body Shop Seaweed Oil Balancing Clay Mask is perfect for oily and combination skin. Unlike The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, it doesn’t leave you with angry red skin afterwards. But it’s also not as powerful at sucking out the gunk as that mask.

Rome Life Hotel | Review
While we were planning our trip to Rome we booked the same hotel as the friends we were going with. We spent hours on TripAdvisor searching hotels that were slightly cheaper but that meant they were either far away or not great quality.
The inclusion of breakfast as part of the hotel package was what ended up swaying us, as well as the proximity to the main train station and the tourist sites in Rome.
