Surprise Birthday Party!

I’m sure you all know by now that I always give Hemayal a surprise birthday party a couple of days before or after her actual birthday. 

This time around I told her 2 days after her birthday that we need to go for a meeting and fortunately we had an event to attend the very same night which means that she’ll be ready so that I don’t have to hear that she wasn’t ready for the pictures for the rest of my life, lol.

I took her to BLT where our friends had already organized everything with the help of Dream Creations Islamabad.

I called Sobia (Owner of Dream Creations) a night before the birthday since everything was very last minute and she literally took control of EVERYTHING. I told her to decorate the table whatever way she likes it & I think that was the best decision ever since the balloons, flowers, decoration pieces, backdrop, Lights, everything was P E R F E C T.

What we wore on Keune Care Treatment Sessions

Hello, guys 💕

We’re super sorry for not updating you guys here on the blog but we’ve been extremely busy organising and attending Keune Care events & now that we’re finally done with them we decided to bring you guys all the fun outfits we wore to all the 3 days of the event.

So basically we had 3 event in 3 cities being Lahore, Islamabad & Karachi & here’s what we wore to each one of them ;

Lahore event 1 –

Lahore being the hub of all the designers puts you in the position of dressing your best as that’s what everyone around you is doing.

We both wore pieces from Erum Khan Couture on the first event .

Hira – I wore this navy blue suit from their mantra collection with a tank top to add a little touch of myself to it and to make sure I don’t look petite in the full navy blue look. I went for minimal makeup and my usual straight hair with a middle partition.

Hemayal – The whole look was created around the long kimono that I got from Erum Khan’s Mantra collection, as the kimino did all the talking I kept everything else pretty simple – A basic white top and a pair of jeans that say ‘bad girls dont cry’. I opted for black kitten heels to complete the look.

Islamabad event 2 –

Islamabad being our hometown gives us the feeling of our very own home which means that we can go totally casual in this very city!

 

Hira – I went with a pretty basic shirt that I got from almas.pk (& OMG can we just take a moment out and appreciate them for making such cool shirts and retailing them in such affordable prices, Thankyou for letting us splurge! ) and paired it with my comfortable pair of black jeans and white sneakers. I mean I knew I’d be running around the entire time so why not toss some comfortable shoes on?

Hemayal – For the second look I opted for formal pants and a buttoned shirt that I got from Mango. I went for sneakers instead of heels as I had to run around and manage alot of things!

Karachi event 3 –

Hira – I decided to mix a little chic & casual for my very last look with black formal pants and a white formal crop jacket from Quiz. In between both of these formals I wore a basic T shirt that said ‘Girl Pride’ which I got from Mango again & I ABSOLUTELY LOVE it for its text. I went for a very glow-y makeup look and a nude lip color and just to add a little pop of color to my monochrome look I went for pink pump heels.

Hemayal – For the final look I went for the easiest option, a jumpsuit! Yes a jumpsuit! I know a lot of you have been asking me where I got my top from but it is actually a jumpsuit and I got it from Quiz a day before we went to Karachi. To complete the look I wore red pump heels.

Kayseria x Bhari Eid

As impending Eid-ul-Adha approaches the fret of what to wear multiplies and by so many brands all over the place, choosing the ‘perfect look’ part gets very difficult. Therefore, to simplify things down we decided to unleash the looks we have chosen to rock, this Eid!

So guys, embrace yourselves to have a look at Kayseria‘s delightfully charming and enthralling Eid Pret Collection.

This Collection exhibits the art of fancy florals and ethnic Indian patterns with great aesthetic pleasure of embroidery work. Decorated with classic accents of Gota and Tilla, along with hand embroideries, the detailing and carefully crafted cuts are sure to steal the spotlight everywhere you go.

Look 1-

I opted for a lime green cotton net kurta adorned with embroidery and trendy straight pants with moti beads separating the bottom 1/4. Along with that, I wore sea green tussle earrings which according to me go perfectly with my look.

Boasting a diverse color palette including the staple Blacks and feisty Reds, youthful Pinks and Blues, this Eid Collection is a star studded event that you wouldn’t want to miss! 

Blonde no more

Like the trend we are also officially done with blonde hair (not quite, but almost)… if you’re interested in our black to blonde hair color then you can read all about it here.

Blonde hair tends to get a little too blonde/fried after a while and it had almost been 6 months since we last dyed our hair so a color transformation was quite necessary and it was all possible because of Faiza from Faiza Salon with minimum damage.

– Hira – Look 1 –
I’m all about straight hair with only a hint of color that doesn’t strike the eye or make every other person look at your hair and cringe. So, i decided to go for a straight long bob with blonde/brown contoured hair. Faiza is literally a hair expert as she went straight in with a trimmer to cut my hair and give me the satisfaction of the hair trimming trend, lol.

After the flawless cut, she went on with applying color to my hair (except for the roots, I tend to avoid coloring my roots) in a contouring technique; hair contouring is basically a coloring technique that uses a combination of free hand application and highlighting paired with the careful positioning of different tones and depths around the face to highlight and shadow targeted areas.

The color she used was 6.13 Loreal from the blonde studio & mixed it with Smart bond; a unique system that protects and strengthens the hair during technical services (such as bleach and hair color).

Here are some pictures to show you the process;

I personally really like this color and the fresh cut, what do you guys think?

– Hemayal – Look 2

So as Hira has already mentioned that Faiza is a hair expert, I completely trusted her with my hair transformation and more importantly my hair cut. I wanted to get rid of all the rough edges, So she went on with giving a mid length cut with a little bit of layers to add some volume.

After going short I didn’t want a major color change so Faiza suggested a very subtle balayage ( which I wanted to get for a very long time)  ) so I said yes. It is the  most trending technique on social media  for highlighting hair in which the dye is painted on in such a way as to create a graduated, natural-looking effect.

The colors she used were 9.1/7.13 Loreal from their blonde studio range mixed with Smartbond to protect my hair from damage and strengthen them.

She completed the look by giving me voluminous beach waves!

Here are the pictures of the process and the final look.
