If you’re local to Leicester, you’ll know that Francis St in the area of Stoneygate is becoming quite the place for niche independent boutiques.
This weekend I visited the gorgeous beauty boutique – Amelia Nour.
Founder and owner – Meesha Kanadia, started her dream project 3 years ago and has built it into a beautiful beauty boutique full of luxuries to bring your senses alive. From the minute I stepped into the boutique all I could think of was ‘oh my god it smells amazing in here’. Thanks to the Coco Luxe candles she stocks.
I was greeted by Meesha and her mum with open arms and was taken on a tour of the store. I had been looking forward to this since Meesha had asked me to pop in for a visit. So getting a personalised tour and finding out all about the products was super exciting for me.
Amelia Nour stocks a range of products that will leave you glowing, relaxed, balanced and just wanting more for your wellbeing. Brands include:
- Coco Luxe Australia
- Bali Balm
- Wild Nurition
- Mauli Rituals
- Sister & Co
- Sirocco Teas
…….plus many many more!
What was so wonderful to see was Meesha’s passion and knowledge about the brands she stocks. It’s clear that the products at Amelia Nour are carefully sourced and considered. Only products that Meesha truly believes in, are ethical and that really make a difference in your wellbeing will be stocked. That’s when she had my attention and I knew this was a store I would become loyal to.
Meesha was kind enough to gift me some products to try. Obviously as a total beauty junkie, I was over the moon and so grateful she took the time to make me a little goodie bag (FYI….recyclable bags)!
From a range of body scrubs, to bath oils, hand and foot creams, to the AMAZING Moa beauty balm and Mauli hair strengthening oil I cannot wait to start using these beauties! I really got to know the products and their benefits because of Meesha. Understanding the history of a product and it’s life cycle from conception to actual product is what makes me fall in love with it. Who doesn’t love a good little story behind the products you’re using right?!?!
One of things I absolutely loved about Amelia Nour was the relaxed ambience. Usually when I walk into small boutiques I feel pressured to buy as I feel like I’m being watched. But not here. Whilst Meesha showed me around and introduced me to the brands, there was no pressure to buy. I was happily left to wonder and really enjoyed the experience. If I could, I would’ve happily spent the whole day there!!
Meesha and her mum are absolute beautiful people and so admirable too! Meesha on a day to day studies law however, has always loved beauty and dreamt of having her own place. 3 years on and here she is totally bossing it with a gorgeous apothecary in Leicester.
Her website stocks all the amazing brands and she’s also working on a blog which I’m excited to see. Amelia Nour’s instagram page will fill you with beauty luxuries and you’ll be able to see what’s new. She also hosts events in the store which I look forward to attend.
Definitely give Meesha & Amelia Nour on Instagram a follow and be sure to pop into her beautiful boutique.
There’s something there for everyone. From premium to luxury products for women, men and even for your home. The experience is totally worth it! You’ll be going back for more, trust me on this one!
Thank you to Meesha for inviting me in! I’m looking forward to seeing your dream grow bigger and celebrating your success with you!
