Winter Care

It’s getting colder day by day which makes our skin dehydrated and drier every minute. We’ve got you covered with these hand, foot and body butters to use in your winter day/night care routine.

                                                                                      Hands & Nails

Bodyshops Almond hand & nail overnight manicure butter is a winter handcare MUST-HAVE it works overnight to keep your hands smooth, wrinkle free and hydrated. It absorbs really quickly so if you’re someone who is into non-sticky non buttery creams, this is the one for you. Body shops butters usually have a very strong scent to it, some that get unbearable but this one doesn’t, its scent is pretty refreshing and mild compared to the other products. Since its a butter in a jar form, it goes a long way so it’s worth the investment.

Elmore Glycerine cream is a non greasy Chamomile extract cream which literally makes your hand and feet feel like butter. We can’t emphasize enough on how smooth, soft and hydrated they make your hand and feet feel if you leave it on overnight. We’re aware that when you think of a glycerine cream you imagine a very greasy and sticky texture but this cream is the exact opposite, as the jar claims that it is non greasy, it actually is and it absorbs really quickly aswell. Trust us with this one since this is our third purchase already, which makes us realize that it tends to run out a little quickly.

‘Body butter is a skin moisturizer that typically contains cocoa butter , shea butter , coconut oil or another vegetable-based oil. It’s thicker than lotions and is extra effective at rejuvenating dry skin, whether used all over or only on problem patches, such as elbows and knees’ As defined by Google.

Now this dry and chilly weather calls for something more than lotions for skin. Lotions are water based that can be good for oily skin at times but not in winters. Your skin needs something more luxurious and moisturizing. This body shop Almond Milk and Honey is the best option we have come across.

Claims to 48hrs intense moisture for sensitive and dry skin and it actually does deliver. The good part is the scent, unlikely to other body butters it does not have a fruity smell unlike most of bodyshop’s body butters. It’s a 10/10 for us.

What is your favorite body butter/hand cream during the winters? Let us know below!

How I planned a Birthday Surprise!

It’s really hard to plan a surprise birthday party when you’re a desi person who lives, goes out, breaths and sleeps with the person they’re planning the surprise for & it gets 5x more difficult while inviting everyone on the same day and time because everyone has their very own curfew days and times. Guess that’s just what makes it more challenging and fun!

Here’s how I planned Milo’s Surprise Birthday Party ( someone had to make up for her pampering me all the time).

Step #1 Venue
Its super hard to choose a venue specially when you live in the twin cities as half of the people find Islamabad more convenient and half of them find Rawalpindi more convenient.

We (her friends & I)  went back and forth deciding wether to do it somewhere out or on our rooftop & we FINALLY agreed on throwing the birthday at 10 eleven lounge (Street 22, F8/2 Islamabad). It’s a beautiful place which consists of live bbq, bonfire, open sitting place with sheds on top. It was just the type of place we had in mind & thanks to Zeeshan we faced no difficulty in booking it.

Step #2 Decor
After deciding the place its time to design the decor & OMG THE OPTIONS AND IDEAS ARE UNLIMITEDDDD but they also tend to get expensive at times. Since I was away on work it was really difficult for me to meet event managers for the decor so I decided to settle for the last minute balloon decor & it pretty much did the job.
iooinoji

Step #3 Menu
A birthday is all about the food and thats basically the most difficult part to decide, Khana Kya hai bhai? It’s really hard to satisfy everyone when it comes to food but we desi’s always have a way out and in this situation it was none other than the evergreen & delicious desi food platter + something light & non desi (sandwiches and fries) a perfect blend of the both Worlds.

Cake –

As delicious as a fondant cake looks it always goes to waste so we always prefer a regular butter cream cake that looks and tastes beautiful & most importantly doesn’t go to waste.

Step #4 Photographer 
Ab sab tyar houn aur tasweerain na houn? C’mon now! Without questioning myself or anyone I straightaway called Ali from the photoneers and Wallah my photography tension was solved & thanks to the photoneers our pictures turned out just the way we wanted!

Favorite Drugstore Concealers 2017

Let’s be honest, a concealer is every girls (& guys) secret weapon to look flawless & to achieve the perfect blemish free skin with zero visibility of dark circles. We all know a good concealer can hide A N Y T H I N G & that’s why we’ll be sharing 3 of our favorite concealers of 2017.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer (25)

WhatsApp Image 2018-03-07 at 10.49.20 PM

 

The perfect NATURAL looking liquid concealer for asian skin tones, it’s an oil free concealer that does not crease under your eyes or cake up your face. Non-comedogenic, Fragrance-free concealer which feels and looks extremely light on your skin, this is our 4th purchase of the FIT ME concealer and it works best on ‘No Makeup’ days where we only apply a concealer, mascara and a lip tint.

How to use:
Dot/Apply over your blemishes/dark circles & pat with your fingers in a soft motion.

Available at most of the stores for e.g. Shaheen , D Watson & Alfateh.
Price (1200 Rs)

L.A Girls Pro Concealer (Natural)
skcnll

 

Medium to heavy coverage creamy concealer that camouflages darkness under the eyes, redness and skin imperfections. It does tend to crease a little but only when your skin is problematic, can always be fixed if you moisturize your skin before applying it & set it properly after applying it. If applied without foundation it tends to conceal your imperfections but if applied after foundation it not only conceals but also highlights your under eyes and whatever part of the face you want to highlight.

How to use:
Apply under your eyes with either a brush or the applicator and pat with your fingers (or a brush) + Top with loose powder to set.

Ordered from Beautybar.pk
(Price varies from 550 – 700 Rps on different pages)

Maybelline Age Rewind (Medium)
WhatsApp Image 2018-03-07 at 10.49.19 PM

Long lasting heavy coverage concealer that does not crease AT ALL, we use a darker shade before applying a foundation to conceal the dark spots on our skin and the dark circles under our eyes. Stays for however long you want it to stay & doesn’t budge or smudge if set properly. Definitely an eraser for dark circles./

How to use:
Twist collar of the Micro-Corrector Applicator in the direction of arrows until the concealer is visible on the sponge (it may take some turns on first use).  Using the applicator, apply concealer directly to the under-eye area, blending in an outward motion with fingers.

Ordered from House of rouge. (1300 Rs)

To Watch or Not to Watch VERNA!

We were invited by #ConstatinePR to watch Verna in Cinegold plex on this very weekend, we had an amazing time watching the movie with some popcorns because you always need something to munch on. The evening ended with some fancy pastas, steaks & sandwiches from their gold restaurant.

Coming to the point — Is Verna worth a watch or not?

The movie revolves around two HUGE issues that not only occur in Pakistan but are troublesome in the entire world; Power abuse & Rape.

Unknown

Verna is all about women empowerment, awareness and education but we personally think that you need a stronger cast to make a big influence or to portray even these three  things & despite Mahira giving her all we think the acting of all the other stars was not upto the mark.

verna.jpg

Verna gives a perfect picture of how unjust our Political system is from the top to the bottom and exactly how we should stand up for Power abuse. We would definitely want women to be strong as Sara, the one who can overcome her fear and fight for her rights and is able to fight for justice and let the powerfull people know that they can’t just get away from all their wrong doings.

h

Not that we didn’t love the sight of Mahira beating her husband up for accusing her of being involved with her rapist and hitting her we sort of feel that she recovered from the trauma a little too quickly, which isn’t really the case in real life. We in the first place wish that there weren’t any such incidents and that if there are any the survivors are as strong as Sara but the truth is that they really aren’t.

haroon-1509358345.jpg

The ending was what put us off the most, it should have had a better/realistic ending & punishment for the culprits.

1280x720-posterframeverna.jpg

All in all, we would definitely recommend you to go and watch the movie as it has a more important message to it rather than just a story.

Rating : 8/10.

Casual to Chic Fall/Winter Looks

Hi guys,

How often do you guys like stuff online but are afraid to order it because you’re unsure of the quality, authenticity of the product & its fitting?

Isn’t it a bummer when everyone around you is wearing the same clothes because there are limited shops available locally where you can get trendy clothes?

Well, we’ve got it all covered for you guys!!
As winter is approaching and the Smog ( A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE) is already here we decided to collaborate with brands that have trendy clothes and are of good quality, not to forget that they deliver worldwide so all of you can benefit from this post.

This Orange Trap Jogger set shouts comfort, this was the first set I ordered from Coal n Terry and I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing it through out this winter season!Also, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t wear a specific color, life is too short to wear boring colors!

I don’t think I’ve to tell you guys that denim jackets are back in fashion and OMG I’VE BEEN TRYING TO FIND THE PERFECT ONE FOR SOOOOO LONGGGGG. I received this distressed denim jacket from Windsor which has faux fur on its collar & it lead to an end to my perfect denim jacket hunt. I paired it with a pair of jeans and a grey tank top.

For the casual look I went for a black tank top with plain blue denim jeans and paired it with a chiffon kimono from Windsor store. It’s a layed back and at the same time a well put together look. The floral kimono is the best thing to wear on anything.

This jumpsuit was the first thing i eyed on the windsor website, I instantly knew how i would wear it and that is exactly what I did! Brown heels and looped earrings.
Strips make you look taller and that is exactly what I was aiming for.

Day to Night Fall Looks

Hello, guys!

The weather seems to be getting a little chilly and the rate of people getting sick and flu is increasing which means that its time to put your off shoulder tops and lawn dresses away and prepare for a cooler weather.

We collaborated with one of our all time favorite eastern clothing brand; Kayseria to bring you some Day to Night Fall looks so you guys can get a variety of ideas to pull off this Fall Season!

Day Looks

For the day time look I chose this cotton modale dress in lilac color & added frill sleeves as this season is all about fiddling with the sleeves to make a statement so the frill sleeves had to be done. The knee length shirt complimented the flared pants well and I completed the outfit wearing pink pump heels. Not to forget the purple jhumkis that I tossed on in the end which I got from a stall in Islamabad.

For the makeup look I wanted to do something out of the box and colored eyeliner being all the rage this season I opted for a lilac eyeliner to match my outfit and fusia pink lip to compliment it. For the hair I went for beachy waves which I got done from Faiza’s Salon as they look the best in day time.

Yellow & Orange are the most trending colors of this season , so I got this Khaddar suit and adorned it with Handmade buttons that enhance the print on the shirt. I made the look a little more fancy with a pair of traditional earrings and a colored liner which is quite a trend of the year.

Night Looks –

For the night time look I went for a black and red outfit. The peplum top with the tussel umberella sleeves was my pick as it would accentuate my lean figure. The bell bottom trouser added a few inches to my height & to complete the look I went for skin wedges and these silver rajestani ear rings I got from Karachi .
batch_WhatsApp Image 2017-10-21 at 6.44.08 PMbatch_WhatsApp Image 2017-10-21 at 6.44.10 PM

I popped on an orange lip with a perfect black wing because my outfit had lot of flare and I didn’t want to take the attention away from it so I went for a low pony tail with a simple middle parting .

While hoping for winters to come up real soon I choose a 3 piece suit with a beautifully printed shawl for my night time look. Nothing looks more decent than a plain suit and a colorful printed wool shawl in a chilly night. All I needed to complete my look was a bold lip color and my all time favorite middle parting ponytail to make sure that the only thing I have to take care of is the shawl and not my hair.

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.

I went for the red/orange family coloured kurta with wide sleeves end and I  paired it with white bell bottoms with a patch of embroided chiffon at the bottom. To compliment my look, I went for very classic & ethnic ‘afghan styled earrings’.

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! 

Almirah #FestiveFrenzy

I believe most of you think that Almirah only stocks eastern wear that consists of embroidered shalwar/kameez or Kurta’s but you’re all wrong, just like we were before we raided Almirah’s store located in Giga Mall.

We were shook by the embellished shirts and monochrome trousers they had in stock to pull off a complete western look. Coming from a profession that involves attending events all the time, we face a lot of trouble finding the perfect white/black/plain shirts & trousers that the others aren’t wearing or haven’t worn already (lol) , thanks to Almirah we found the perfect spot to shop these items from now onwards. Don’t believe us? See these items for yourself.

Told you!

Don’t worry they also have the traditional wear that we all seem to love & the best part is that their eastern wear is of both categories; they have plain white & black kurtas for people who don’t like to go out of their comfort zones & they also have heavily embellished and embroidered kurtas for those who love experimenting with their looks. Here are a few articles for you guys to see;

 

Here are the looks we tried while we were at the store ;

The most attractive thing about this dress were the sleeves, I absolutely loved them specially the fact that they have another pair of sleeves attached to them which makes it super comfortable to move your hands here and there & not to forget that fancy embellishment on the sleeves! The gharara pants are everyones favorite these days, I love baggy and flow-y clothes so that I can make boomerangs in them, hehe. Shirt: 6450/- Gharara pants: 2650/-
Look #2

I choose this simple black shirt and tried it out with two different bottoms. The shirt was perfect to pair with absolutely anything, it had a longer back side short front.  The reason I wen’t with a white embellished trouser first was to create a monochrome look. I paired the same shirt with this cool dhoti type shalwar making it more of an ethnic outfit. I loved the minimalistic details on the shirt though it was very plain and simple but as they say once you go black you cannot go back.

Hope you guys liked these looks!
