Hey Beauties,

Hello Hello 😀 I know its been a while since i posted but im usually pretty active on my instagram and snapchat so the ones who are following me there knows why i was busy and not posting blogs. But seriously i miss blogging and all the fun and excitement it gave me. I have a lot of pending reviews and even more products to show you guys so i would suggest you all to sit back and buckle up as the blog will be flooded with posts in the coming months. Insha’Allah.

Let just start off with the footwear that i recently bought and absolutely loved. Its from a store named Ayhani’s located in Dolmen City Mall Karachi.

I was stunned with the designs and comfort of these footwear, im mostly comfortable in flats and square heels so that type of chappals (as we call it in urdu) are flat.

1. Vibrant Cris Cross Design Slipper

c

b
Half Inch Heel

I personally love colors and these type of footwear attract me more because then I can later pair it with multiple outfits  to compliment my look.

The soul is soft and will not hurt the heel. The design perfectly fits your foot and I felt very comfortable wearing it 🙂

Price: 1,390

2. Elegant Chain Design Slipper

Golden chain over a white breaded strap and tear drop stud 

Embellishment gives anything that elegant feel and that’s exactly what my next pick was. A flat slipper embellished with a golden chain on white double strap along with a big tear drop stud and a golden rim on the base. It can be worn casually and semi formally both.

Price: 1,990/-

Im undoubtedly in love with how comfortable the soul of these slippers are. This is the main thing which im concerned off and im glad i discovered this brand 🙂

The price range is slightly high but you are getting the best quality for the right price.

 Hope you enjoyed my mini haul and liked my picks. Share you views in the comment section below, would love to read 🙂

Until next time,

Hello my lovely reader,

I know i know this is not a beauty post but hey you need to eat good to look good right 😉 haha gotcha !! Kidding. Lately I have been looking into good recipes to boost up my cooking skills and tried this recipe. It is certainly a re-creation, I twerked it a bit and made slight changes as my family loves gravy and added spices in it aswell. This recipe is from the famous KCH group on Facebook. Im so glad im part of it though i dont participate much but i do try recipes from there and enjoy them 🙂 

The recipe is originally from Fariha bilal member of Karachi Chef at Home.

So here is how the recipe goes…

Recipe as i followed: (1kg ratio)

Ingredients: (for kababs)
Chicken mince: 1 kg
Onion: 2 finely chopped
Ginger Garlic paste: 1 tsp each
Dhaniya powder: 1 tsp
Zeera power: 1tsp
Chapli kabab masala: 4tbsp
Dhaniya+ Podina: andazan half bunch
Green chillies: 3
Crushed red chilis: 1tsp
Kasuri methi: 1/2 tsp
Egg: 1

Ingredients: (for gravy)
Oil: 1/2 cup
Onion: 2 medium chopped
Tomatoes: 2 medium chopped
Dhaniya powder: 1/2 tbps
Zeera powder: 1/2 tbsp
Haldi: 1/2 tsp
Zeera sabut: 2 pinch
Water as required to bhoon-fie the masala and how much gravy/curry you want.

Method:
For Kabab –
1. Mix all the dry ingredients with the mince and also add one egg+ 2 bread slices with it. Prepare kababs, (I used seekh kabab shape) fry them and set aside.

For Gravy:
1. In 1/2 cup oil add in sabut zeera along with chopped onions when they turn light golden add tomatoes, ginger garlic paste and all the other ingredients except dhaniya and green chilies.
2. Add in water to bhoon-fy the masala.
3. Once the masala is ready, add the fried kababs and with dhaniya and green chilies. Leave it to dum for 10mins.

End Result:

reshmi-karhai-kabab1

 

I really enjoyed trying this recipe as its not a typical dish and my family loved it. And you can also only make the kababs and fry them to enjoy a perfect snack in the evening. It tastes really good that way aswell 🙂

This recipe went into my recipe book instantly 😀 specially i make the kababs and freeze them its a time saver 😉

Hope you all enjoyed reading this and will try it out. Waiting for your feedback.

Until next time my lovelies.

Much Love,

Hey dear readers 🙂
Hope you are doing well in your life and miss reading my blog posts 😉 that why here I am today to share with you all a yummy post about frozen food range which is the 1st post for my taste test series, I will be posting things which i put to taste test and will have a complete post about it !

Kitchen Stone which is an unprocessed frozen foods brand recently launched here in Pakistan, yes you heard that right!! Last month they send me some of their famous range of frozen foods to try out and it surely was a treat to receive such wonderful PR package with variety of frozen foods. The box was made to look like a wooden box filled with shavings of wood inside lay four different types of frozen food boxes including chicken cheese balls, Pizza rolls, Shami kabab (chicken) and kofta kabab.

Thank you kitchen stone and Ali Asghar for sending me such a delicious treat to taste 🙂

ABOUT KITCHEN STONE:

Kitchen Stone is for families looking for healthier options for ready to cook food. We use 100% non-processed meat, almost farm fresh ingredients, no food color, taste enhancer or any form of preservatives.

MY TASTE TEST EXPERIENCE WITH KITCHEN STONE:

Though from quite few months im trying to control my diet, these items from kitchen stone just made me realize what im missing on life 😛 I tried their pizza roll and it super amazing !! All the flavors were in the exact proportion to give the taste of pizza, literally it was a crunchy fried pizza roll writing about it makes me wanna eat it again. Next up I gave a try to their hot seller Chicken Cheese Balls called Chickz and my initial thought was it won’t have a good amount of cheese in it because usually frozen food don’t at least the ones i have tried in past. But oh boy was I wrong! 😀 right in the 1st bite a glob of cheese came oozing out “food porn moment* :P.

For reference I have attached a good amount of pictures so that you guys can see for yourself as I cannot offer you a bite lol.

I still have to give try to their shami kababs and kofta kabab which I already have in mind how to prepare them in recipes so do keep a lookout on it for my blog. I will be doing a separate post on them.

But for the 2 products I tired I would give these double thumbs up (Y) and I highly recommend you to try them as they are really good and also healthy because of the unprocessed content! Attaching pictures of the menu so you guys have an idea about the price list per box.

FASHION STATEMENT by ZAFUL (Haul & Review)

 

Earlier this month I was contacted by an online store Zaful to check out weather i would like to purchase clothing items from their online store to check the service and product quality, they and gave me a voucher worth 35% to spend. Mostly what was being promoted on their social media platform were bikinis but when i searched their website they had variety of products from clothing line to accessories. After much searching i choose a sports bra because I am into shredding some weight these days and a testing out a good quality sports wear would be great and I also picked up a .kimono blouse (its a type of a loose shrug).

About Zaful:

Zaful is your one-stop online shop for today’s most daring, exciting and edgy fashion apparel. Our affordable collections are all about redefining trends, design excellence and exceptional quality to satisfy the needs of every aspiring fashionista. The original idea is to share the latest news and fashion trends on women’s clothing with fashion-forward, free-thinking girls, and we offer the fast fashion worldwide. Read more

Lets go through the products that I bought one by one:

  1.  Mesh Racerback U Neck Sports Bra 

The sports bra that i choose is really comfortable. Its a full support sports bra and it keeps my posture up right while doing different kinds of exercises. Also the material is very soft and stretchable it absorbs the sweat well and does not give me any kind of discomfort. It is not wired but lightly padded which is removable. My skin is not a fan of cheap quality polyester which could irritate my skin and this sports bra did no such thing to my skin so for the price its a really good pick and Im really glad I made this purchase :).

f

e

2. Green Floral 3/4 Sleeve Kimono Blouse

Kimonos are really a style statement these days and it can be paired with almost all your shirts to give you that trendy look. I picked this digital printed kimono for myself from Zaful because I usually top my western attire with some kind of shrug or jacket as i feel more comfortable and modest like so and this kimono really attracted me. It has beautiful black tassels in the end and the material is light and doesn’t crinkles. I choose the size medium.

Overall buying experience with Zaful:
My online buying experience with zaful was great overall I enjoyed getting an opportunity to work with zaful. My package arrived within a weeks time after placing the order,  securely packed. The only drawback for me was that I had to pay for the shipping cost which would not have been bad if I was notified before hand earlier by the team but oh well i got choose products that i liked and wanted so thankyou for that gesture Zaful 🙂
Other then that great stuff on the website, amazing quality products at affordable prices. One should definitely check the website and order some goodies 🙂

Thankyou Jessica and team Zaful for giving me this opportunity.

You can follow them on facebook and Instagram.

Have you had a shopping experience with Zaful or are you planning to buy from there? Comment and let me know 🙂

Until next time.

Take Care my beauties.

Much love,

Bloggers Meet & Greet Hosted by BIODERMA Pakistan

 

As much as we all love makeup, we also need to take it off so that it doesn’t harm our skin. And this is what Bioderma Sensibio H2O is all about. Its a mi-cellar  cleansing water that is Sensitive to intolerant skin. I feel lucky enough that I was invited by Bioderma Pakistan for the Bloggers Meet & Greet session. It was a very small but informative and interactive meetup by the Team, congrats to them for hosting such a nice event.

About BIODERMA:

  • BIODERMA, DERMATOLOGICAL LABORATORY

A pioneer since the 1970s, BIODERMA has acquired unique expertise by placing biology at the service of dermatology. This original scientific approach relies first and foremost on knowledge of the skin and its biological mechanisms to formulate products directly inspired by them.

Bio has been derived by Biology and Derma has been derived from Dermatology.

  • A SINGLE MODEL: HEALTHY SKIN

All BIODERMA research revolves around the study of healthy skin and its cells and imbalances. The skin speaks its own language and BIODERMA tirelessly seeks to understand it. It is subject to changes and environmental stresses. Therefore, diseases, medicated treatments, ageing and many other factors may affect its balance and cause it to malfunction. BIODERMA’s approach involves reactivating the skin’s natural resources to help it resist and recover its normal functions, which are those found in healthy skin.

  • A UNIQUE CONCEPT, BIOLOGICAL MIMETISM

Based on total respect for the skin, BIODERMA products imitate its natural biological mechanisms through their components and their modes of action. To formulate them, BIODERMA selects the purest active ingredients, using molecules naturally found in the skin for better tolerance. Depending on the malfunction, BIODERMA products preserve, activate or restore the skin’s natural processes.

  • AN ABSOLUTE REQUIREMENT, THE DERMATOLOGICAL SAFETY

BIODERMA has always sought to reconcile perfect effectiveness and better tolerance for each skin type and each condition. In order to guarantee the greatest dermatological safety, BIODERMA products contain a very limited number of ingredients and optimally dosed active ingredients. Pre-empting the recommendations of the health authorities, BIODERMA tends to exclude all dermatologically questionable products. These commitments are reflected in a formulation charter that applies to all product developments and grounds their superiority in a scientific method. This uncompromising approach explains why BIODERMA products improve the skin’s tolerance and help it be less reactive. That is why they all benefit from the DAF (Dermatological Advanced Formulation) patented natural complex.

Reference from: http://www.bioderma.com/en/the-laboratory/bioderma-philosophy

Product Benefit:

  • Combines performance and very high tolerance
  • Cleanses and removes make-up from the face and eyes
  • Soothes and clears up irritated skin
  • Produces a feeling of instant freshness
  • Non-rinse

Known For Being:

  • Fragrance-free formula
  • Alcohol-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Hypoallergenic

 

My Experience at the Meet & Greet with other bloggers and Bioderma Team:

The meet & greet was organised at Pranzo by Fourth Arc, I had never been there but as iI has recently opened I did knew that this place existed because a lot of people check-in there. I reached the venue on time and got to meet Umer Hafeez who was part of the team responsible for this event along with Maliha Rao, Zeenia and Atiya and Meesha Hassan Khan. After that almost everyone invited joined in and we were escorted upstairs for the presentation session of the product.

 

After going through Bioderma Sensibio H2O’s product benefits they made us test out the product live by swatching any makeup item from our purses and removing it by Bioderma. And trust me my snapchat fam knows that I removed my colourpop liquid lipstick in just one swipe from the back of my hand. Its that GOOD !! Leaving a soft feeling on my skin. As I was testing out the product for the very 1st time I could see instant results and that was a wowing factor for me 😀 true love feelings

Another fun thing which the Bio Derma team did after the presentation was a quiz via their twitter account and we had to ans the question on twitter. It was a really fun session and I really enjoy these kind of activities though Im still slow with twitter but it boosted my interest to be more active there 😛

A team of professionals were also present there to check our skin and gave us tips to use specific Bioderma products to cater our skin issues and problems. We were handed goodies bags by the Bioderma Pakistan which included a no. of their sample products and a full size bottle of Bioderma Sensibio H2O.

Then we were lead downstairs for Hi-Tea where we were served a no. of starters including mini burgers, pizza, chicken wings, fried prawns & fish etc. I loved the mini burger and Mint Smoothie. Later tea and and a platter full of brownies, cupcakes and cake puffs were served. All the bloggers got a good time to chit chat eat and share their love for makeup 🙂 Selfies were a must 😉 !!

MY STORAGE ORGANIZERS & MAKEUP VANITY TOUR

 

Hello my beauties,

Hope you are doing fab and will a great weekend 🙂 I am here with another blog post related to how i store my makeup and some tips to DIY organize your storage. I wanted to do this kind of post for the longest time and when I learned about MakeSpace having a similar idea, I instantly wanted to post a blog related to my makeup storage area. If you do not know about Makespace, its an online self storage service provided located in a number of locations that picks up and stores your things for you until you have the space to store it again. I really loved this idea  because at times you do not have space or you are about to shift and do not have much area to store your things before leaving to the new place and voila there you have Makespace to help you. 

For more details visit their website:  https://makespace.com/nyc/

Now lets move forward with how I store my makeup and organize my vanity 😊

a.  Acrylic Makeup Organizers:

d

As the trend of these acrylic makeup organizers have evolved so have their prices too. I find them very pricey but they do look good so its okay to have one or two 😛 I recently got mine from a local shop in my country. You can also find these acrylic organizers on online face book pages which deal in makeup related items.

I love lipsticks, literally i am a lipstick hoarder and to keep my lipsticks in place i bought this acrylic organizer, i liked the fact that its compact and compresses my makeup into one place. Which means now i know where my particular lipstick or eyeliner is, best part is its sturdy and the smaller the items you keep the more space you have.

This specific organizer which I own have a total of 4 drawers and the upper area consist of 12 cubes for the lipsticks and few other compartments/sections to keep your different makeup items like shown in the closeup images below.

On the upper portion of the organizer I have kept eyeliners in one section, few everyday use items in another and concealers in one.

Concealers
h
Eyeliners
l
Drawer 1 (glitter eyeshadow pots)
m
Drawer 2 (matte lipsticks)
n
Drawer 3 (liquid lipsticks, my favorite one :P)
o
Drawer 4 (Some small palettes, hightligher & blush)

b. Mugs/Brushholders:

Another great idea is to keep your makeup items such as brushes, liquid lipsticks or eyeliners in a mug or pencil holders but make sure that they are cute and colorful according to your theme 😃.

You can also spray paint them or use duck-tape to decorate and make it a DIY project.

b
Plastic colored glass
c
Pencil holder to put most use makeup items 🙂

3. Empty boxes:

This is the most common thing which you can do to keep your makeup in place and organize it. I die for chocolates and so I am left with lots of empty Ferrero Rocher see through containers, the good thing about these are that they look similar to the acrylic organizers and so give a nice look to your vanity.

I love keeping my nail polishes and the tools i used for nail art in these containers and also my jewelry.

e
3 Ferrero Rocher boxes use to keep nail polishe and  nail art tools.

You can always pump it up with decorating the box with duck-tape or self-adhesive diamante/pearls to give it a unique and DIY feel.

I have kept mine a bit simple 😊

So here you have it, now you have seen my vanity space and how i organize my limited makeup storage area. Hope you liked these kind of posts let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Catch you again next time.

Much love,

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR SUNGLASSES

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR SUNGLASSES

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR SUNGLASSES

Sunglasses are an accessory which doesn’t go out of fashion in any way. People spend hours in selecting the best sunnies for themselves, which complement their face shape, eyes as well as taste. In Pakistan, you can find the latest trends in sunglasses from Tesoro Accessories, Haroon’s and Accessorize among other top brands!

With all that effort, no one would want their precious sunglasses to get dented or dirty as none are damage proof. But still a good pair of sunglasses has a lot of love and wear, which causes them to get spoiled. In order to avoid that people try to use different hacks. Most of the times these hacks end up damaging the sunglasses further or don’t give the desired results.

A most common hack even among those who were spectacles for sight impairment, they clean their dirty lenses through moistening lenses with their breath then wiping it off with lint cloth. This causes the dirt to further smear on the lenses and even scratch it.

Therefore, the article will focus on some tips and tricks in order to maintain your sunglasses and care for them after use. These tips may only require the basic things which people usually have laying around at their house, thus making them inexpensive as well as effective.

Protect your Lenses

After every use, always remember to put your sunglasses in a protective case, preferably a hard one. This may be a bit of a hassle when in hurry but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. These hard cases are great to protect your sunnies from breakage while buried inside your handbags. They also prevent contact of water, sand and dust. The only drawback is that these cases take a lot of space.

When cleaning your lenses, try to avoid using a lint cloth or a paper towel. This is because it leaves residues of lint and the wood content in the paper towel may cause scratching on the lenses.

Make good use of the small microfiber cleaning cloth which usually comes with the purchase of sunglasses. If not then do buy some to keep in your bag or pocket as they come in handy. They are the best for wiping off dirt and smudges off the lenses.

Never leave your sunglasses unattended on the floor, dinner table or even sofas where it is bound to break or get damaged.

Cleaning Of Your Sunglasses For Ladies

Proper cleaning process for sunglasses is actually quite hassle free and more effective contrary to popular belief. It can be done anywhere, anytime.

It will just require dish soap, a lint free cloth and some warm running water. Just wash your sunglasses thoroughly under running water, soap it all over and wash it to remove all the lather. Dab it dry with a lint free or microfiber cleaning cloth.

Make sure not to use any lotion based soap as it leaves a thin slippery coat which may fog up your vision, as well as no paper based wipes to avoid scratching of the lenses.

There are plenty of times when after a lot of use sunglasses start to feel not quite the same. They might not sit on the face right, feel slightly loose or feel irritated on the nose or ears. Don’t worry! As long as they are not completely damaged or broken, they can be fixed.

Tightening screws: Sunglasses have tiny screws which hold the top and bottom parts of the frame. These tend to get loosen over time. Therefore a periodic tightening is required with a small head screwdriver.

If the nose pads of the sunglasses have worn out and are biting in the skin then it’s time to replace them. Nose pads which are screw-in, snap on and slide in nose pads are available in the market, according to your sunnies frame requirement.

If the frame is made of plastic and feel uneven, then it’s difficult for it to be adjusted. But for metallic frames it’s easier. With just a soft cloth, needle nose pliers and a flat surface, you can adjust your frames just like you want them to be. Keep making incremental adjustments from the source of the bend till the tips of the frames rest evenly on the surface.

With these hacks of prevention, cleaning and adjusting you can easily keep your favorite sunglasses in pristine condition as long as they last!

Zaheer
