What we wore on Keune Care Treatment Sessions

Hello, guys ūüíē

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 –

batch_22281285_10155692349500350_338598630_o

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.

batch_22243934_10155692351645350_1995300322_obatch_22243507_10155692350240350_1590865387_o

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.

batch_22281239_10155692345830350_1961347906_o4G8A86524G8A8642I hope you guys liked our looks! have a good day. x

Eid is just around the corner and with it arises the question of what/who to wear this Eid?

I don’t think I can ever get over white, I choose this white peplum top adorned with embroidered Indian floral motifs and paired it with sharara pants and a plain white embroidered chiffon dupatta. The look I had in mind was a very subtle glow-y one and this is basically why I went for minimal makeup and a nude lipcolor. I’m wearing embroideried peach khussas which you can’t see but trust me they went well with the embroidery on the shirt, lol. Not to forget the earrings that are by Kayseria aswell, they’ve got some really fun accessories so do check them out! Click¬†here¬†to buy this outfit.

Mother’s Day at Faiza’s Salon

You can never thank your¬†Mother enough for what she has done for you¬†but you¬†¬†can always try taking care of her¬†and we know that one day isn’t enough but if it makes her¬†happy then why not?

This Mother’s Day we were invited to¬†Faiza’s Salon¬†to pamper our Mother along with a couple of other bloggers and their Mothers.¬†We believe all Mothers deserve a good old¬†massage after all the errands they run every day.

It was a fun evening spent gossiping and catching up with other bloggers while our mothers got the special treatment that they deserve.

The mothers got a complimentary facial, manicure and pedicure, which according to our mom was pretty relaxing and it was exactly what she needed on a day off from work.
The staff being super friendly and cooperative as always spoiled us with hot/cold beverages while the mothers got their services done.

We also got to meet the well known actress, Mariyam Nafees who showed up with her mother at the event,  she was just as beautiful and sweet as she is on television.

Here are a few glimpses of the day;

 

Sometimes you’re so busy in the moment that you forget to capture it and we believe that clearly describes this very event! How did you guys spend Mother’s Day?

How to prepare for exams

Hi guys,

Sorry for being a little MIA but we were having our exams and it gets a little hectic maintaining your blog while studying.
Now that we’re done we decided to get back on track and as we just went through the exams preparation and stress phase we decided to bring some exam tips for you guys that helped us the most.

nosocialmedia.jpg

– Delete all of your social media accounts….just kidding, we’re certainly not the type of people who can cut ourselves from everywhere and just study study study, we believe in balancing our study and tagging each other in memes time. It actually freshens your mind a little, but if you can deactivate your accounts then you’re most welcomed.

sticker,220x200-bg,ffffff-pad,220x200,ffffff

– Keep yourself HYDRATED!!!¬†This is the most important tip guys, we all tend to get a little (A LOT; in our case) lazy and sleepy during exams and its mainly because we aren’t drinking enough water or getting enough sleep.

how-to-explain-3d-printing

– This has to be Hemayal’s favorite tip; explain your answers to your siblings/parents or even to an imaginary person, whatever works in your case. You actually learn and remember stuff better when you explain it to others.

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAJWAAAAJGU2OTcwOTU3LTc3MTEtNDk3NC1iZmI5LTFkYTg3N2ZlZTliNQ

– Always make notes of your own or highlight important stuff so you can go through it and memorize it again in the very end.

girl-paper-collector-classroom-helper-clipart-classroom-jobs-clip-art

– ALWAYS practice sample questions and sample papers so that you know how you’ll manage time during the paper and get a hold of the paper pattern.

Sleep-top-of-page-FILEminimizer

– Sleep on time, even if its for a while but SLEEP as it helps you focus/concentrate better and stay fresh.

Hope these tips were helpful and if you have any other tips in mind then do share them with us below ūüôā

OOTD x Jahanara

The super hot weather deserves something easy breezy (light weight) and beautiful at the same time like the ‘Dream a Little Collection by Jahanara.

Jahanara launched its first lawn collection last year and with its first launch we knew it was going places. The designs, colors and material all are of top notch quality and they’ve kept the prices pretty economical ranging from 3,850-4,050.

This time around they came up with printed trousers paired with printed shirts which was a total yes for us, as we were getting sick of those plain old black, white and skin trousers with every other 3 piece lawn suit. The print on print suits are perfectly balanced with floral prints on shirts and geometrical prints on the trousers.

Don’t be scared there is something for everyone – If you like plain trousers then they still have those as well!

Here is what we choose to wear from the Dream a Little collection for a lunch;

#Kayseria’s Timeless beauty Collection

Hi, guys

We’re here with a lawn review today, which is on the timeless beauty collection by kayseria.
Though people from the southern part of Pakistan have already been wearing lawn since February but we only got a chance to try it this very week.  There have been a number of lawn launches but we wanted to bring you something different, stylish yet affordable.  So basically this review is all about wearing a statement outfit that doesn’t hurt your pocket!

Kayseria has three lines to choose from that cover all age groups; the unstitched line , the pret and the ladli line. The unstitched line has a wide variety to choose from like the single shirt pieces , three piece suits with lawn, silk and  chiffon duppattas  ,suits with embroidered  patches and everything else that you ask for in a lawn jora. What we really loved about this collection was that instead of those embroidered patches that are unbearable in the scorching heat this time Kayseria replaced them with delicate bead work, it’s a very subtle yet beautiful kind of work that ends up making your lawn jora different , wearable and chic. There’s no compromise on the quality as usual, it’s of fine and breathable quality.
Here are our top picks from the unstitched collection;

The Pret line offers some finely designed and styled complete outfits,  trousers and kurtas in a variety of sizes.  The kurtas from the pret line are not just straight stitched shirts , they have so much more to it like intricate bead work , detailed and modern cut out sleeves, organza sleeves, laces etc. Trendy trousers; flared, plated, tight and a variety of tulip and normal shalwars.

Here are our top picks from the Pret collection;

Day to Night x Najwa

There are only some designers that do modern day dresses right and Najwa; a Moroccan designer based in Karachi is undoubtedly one of them.  Fringes, frills, intricate cuts and patch works, this woman works with it all!

Here are two looks we’ve put together for you guys from her collection ;

– Day Time Look –

This outfit is perfect for any lunch-date/brunch. The frills on the trouser and sleeves give a perfect touch of quirkiness and the beads add some sophistication to it, making this statement outfit perfect for any day time occasion. I paired the dress with pink pointed heels to add another color to the complete look.

– Night Time Look –

A perfect Teal embellished with fringes for any night time occasion. The cut on the sleeve followed by a knot was just a cherry on top of this beautiful dress. Black block heels and a bold choker completes the look for me, what do you guys think?

Do check Najwa out on Instagram for more dresses and style inspirations!

OOTD x Stoneage

Hair Care Routine!

Hi, guys
A lot, like literally a lot of you have been asking us about our hair care products and trust me this post has been in the pipeline for a very long time so we apologize for the delay and hope that this post answers all of your questions!

I’d start from the type of hair we both have;

I, Hira, have straight hair naturally and my hair tends to get oily from the crown pretty quickly which means that i can’t skip washing my hair for more than a day and that’s how it should be for everyone as washing your hair daily is quite harmful if you keep in mind the amount of chemicals that are present in the shampoo and conditioners we use.

Hemayal on the other hand is blessed with curly hair and they’re more on the dry side.

We’ve been asked about the hair products we use quite a lot of times, so here are all the products we use;

Shampoo & Conditioner
15327594_10154722767270350_1682416876_n
We use the ¬†L’oreal Professional Mythic Oil Shampoo & Masque, the entire mythic oil range nourishes your hair and makes it look more tamed & glossy.
The masque is pretty much to be treated as a conditioner and is to be applied on shampooed hair for about 2-3 minutes and¬†rinsed for deeply nourished, super smooth and irresistibly silky hair. We bought both of these products from the Royli’s salon in Islamabad to be sure of their authenticity

Vatika Almond Hair Oil

15328252_10154722767200350_985713831_n

Hemayal prefers using this oil before every wash as she has dry hair & according to her it leaves her hair more silky and that colored hair should not be washed without oiling them (yes, she lives by this mantra & scolds me every time I don’t oil my hair). You can clearly see how much she uses this by looking at the state of the almost empty bottle.

I, Hira, on the other hand prefer applying mayonnaise on my hair and as disgusting as it sounds it leaves your hair super silky and it also helps in hair growth so all those who can bear the smell should definitely give it a try. I leave the mayo ¬†on for about 15-30 mins before taking a shower, don’t worry about the smell guys it goes away as soon as you wash your hair. (yes, im clearly more of a diy/desi totkay sort of a person)

L’Oreal Liss Unlimited

flat800x800075f-u2k

After washing our hair we apply this evening primrose oil that tends to tame your hair & makes it less frizzy (by less frizzy I mean not frizzy at all). I also tend to use it before styling my hair as it adds a shine in your hair & makes your hair easy to work with.

Mythic Oil

15328361_10154722767210350_1500912179_n
The last step to our hair care routine is to apply mythic oil, yes we apply the liss unlimited oil before we apply this one, we tend to work this one on the ends as they are always more dry compared to the roots. Applying this luxurious oil  on wet hair leaves your hair more nourished and adds a gorgeous sparkle to your hair!

We hope this answers all of your questions, these are all the products we use and you can clearly see that by the drained bottles. One last thing, yes we both often style our hair and here’s the link to the blog post we did on our hair color long ago as most of you can’t find it;¬†Black to Blonde.

Shawl Mania

Raise your hand if your throat is as dry as the weather these days, Oh well, keeping the very common viral aside it’s time to take your shawls out ladiesssss (& even lads, because even they look super classy in shawls).

We girls here at Herandhem LOVE Shawls because most importantly they keep you warm and because they accentuate your outfit and make you look 10 x elegant and attractive than you already are. It is also an excellent accessory to hide what you’re wearing if you wrap it all around you like a blanket, I’m sure all you desi girls know this trick! ūüėČ

Kayseria was generous enough to let us experiment with their shawls and style them in different ways for you guys to see. The iconic wool blend and herring bone shawls are surely a symbol of luxury and finesse in printed versions that are multi purpose; feminine and evergreen.

I’m sure you guys remember¬†Umara¬†from our¬†Independence day¬†post and even if you don’t then its no big deal because you’ll see her slaying the shawl look with us in this very post!
