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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 participateย much but i do try recipes from there and enjoy them ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

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

So here is how the recipe goes…

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

This recipe went into my recipe book instantly ๐Ÿ˜€ specially i make the kababs and freeze them its a time saver ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

Until next time my lovelies.

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 ย cleansing water that isย 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:ย 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.ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 ๐Ÿ˜›

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Selfies were a must ๐Ÿ˜‰ !!

CLAZONA BEAUTYโ€“ 24 Hour Matte Lipgloss (Mini Review and Swatches)

CLAZONA BEAUTYโ€“ 24 Hour Matte Lipgloss (Mini Review and Swatches)

CLAZONA BEAUTY โ€“ 24 HOUR MATTE LIPGLOSS (Mini Review and Swatches)

Hello there my beauties. I hope everyone is at the best of their health smile emoticon I am here with another pick it or shelf it mini review for the Clazona โ€“ 24 hour matte lipglosses. Though i am late. Few Pakistani bloggers have already posted reviews about this brand and product, which has been creating waves in the market these days, but it i just could not keep myself away from it. Thanks to SherryK. From The Other Side Of The Mirror who dug this gem out of a local brand wink emoticon

Clazona being a Pakistani brand, that also manufactures on a local level only, has come up with a matte formula lip gloss/lipstick which is quite similar to the NYX SMLP and i am being very serious when j say that. If you have the SMLP, you can do the comparison and you shall see that the formula is almost the same. It has a moose like texture and applies like a cream on the lips and sets to a dry finish. ( since I have both so I have done my homework of comparison ).

About Clazona Beauty:

The brand itself is not new to the market. Previously it was known as clarity and later it re-launched with the name of clazona beauty. It has a wide variety of cosmetics which includes face powder, lipsticks, eyelashes and nail polishes. (This was the maximum information I could get from the internet about the company/brand).

Ingredients:

Unfortunately, i couldnโ€™t find much about the ingredient list.

Claims:

As the name states it is a 24 hour matte lipgloss.

Packaging:

Packaging of this lipgloss is just like any other standard lip gloss. It comes in a transparent plastic tube with a black unscrew to open the cap which is attached to the applicator. The applicator is good in terms of it’s deposits of the product on the lips and itโ€™s not too long so the product can be distributed evenly on the lips as well. The tube has the shade numbers written on a sticker at the bottom and has “24 hours long lasting matte finish lipgloss enriched with vitamin E, I, A and C” printed vertically.

1

Texture:

The formula applies as a creamy mousse and sets completely matte. The texture though is creamy but not runny at all. You can apply one coat on the lips, let it set and then apply another layer. You need to give atleast 2-3 mins to let the lipgloss set.

Experience with the Clazona 24 hours matteย lip-gloss:

I found the product upto the mark. A thumbs up from me for the formula, has long lasting power and pigmentation. It will not give you exactly 24 hours of long lasting product on your lips but can stay upto 5-6 hours without eating or drinking. It has a sweet hint of smell but goes away once applied. It emphasis on the fine lines of the lips as itโ€™s a matte lip-gloss and dries to a matte finish. You will have to exfoliate your lips and apply a balm underneath to work with this.

The main concern which I have is with the packaging and distribution. Since it is easily available over the counter so, I noticed that the shop keeper allows you to swatch and check the colors before purchasing so the tubes are open and not kept fresh. Also, they donโ€™t give out a fresh packed piece because it might come to them without any packaging what so ever (The company should look into this in the long run). Other then this packaging is important to know details like ingredients and product weight etc so i personally took it as a backdrop which might stop me from purchasing it. However, to conclude, the product itself is a good bargain for the price. You cannot complain.

2

Pros:

  • Full coverage
  • Pigmented
  • Long wear Budget Friendly

Cons:

  • Tacky smell
  • Tube is not sealed
  • Ingredients not mentioned
  • Excessive rubbing of lips can make the lip product to crumble.

Price: 150-200/- PKR (Depends on the retailer/outlet purchased from)

Swatches & Shades:

PICK IT OR SHELF IT:

So if you ask me is it a Pick it or a Shelf it, my ans will he definitely pick it girls !! the money is so within range with super color payoff and amazing pigmentation + the matte finish (all the hype in this century) you cannot stand there thinking weather to pick it or not from that display or shelf. I would say GRAB as many as your hands can hold !! ๐Ÿ˜€

Rate: 4/5

Until next time,

Catch you with another pick it or shelf it soon.

A Perfect Day – Food Panda Way ;)

A Perfect Day – Food Panda Way ;)

A Perfect Day – Food Panda Way !! ๐Ÿ˜‰

cover pic food panda

I have grown up listening to the saying โ€œinner beauty reflects outer beautyโ€. It is a fact that no matter what you do, if you donโ€™t believe in yourself, your face can never repel your true beauty. For the said reason, I chose my blog to be an inspiration not only for cosmetics but the beauty within one, the natural one. It can be very difficult for me at times to choose if I am to work on a blog post concerning make-up or how to adore your original self. So instead, I try to blend them together. After all, you canโ€™t walk wearing one shoe only, can you? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Reading different articles, listening and interviewing make-up artists or attending meet and greet occasions and then summarizing everything together to make it productive for the reader. That is how the ship sails.

My laptop is always kept next to my bed because as soon as I wake up, I tend to follow up with the work left over. Because of which, I usually take my breakfast in bed. After I am done plotting down all the joints, the next step is to join them together in a parallel line. I take my work as my art of living which makes it easier for me to figure out what my next goal would be. Trying different make-up lines, swatching different lipsticks, I need to freshen up a gazillion times during the day and the time flies before I even notice that moon has taken over the day light. Performing my duties as a blogger i need to change my working category from being a blogger to a art-craft girl being an owner to a small online art and craft business by the name of Mignon- A sprinkle of love and care, I need to prepare overflowing orders which are all customized and according to customer needs. My day usually starts off as a blogger and ends on art and craft ๐Ÿ™‚

In between when my tummy starts to growl and rumble with hungry, thatโ€™s when I pick my phone up and jump onto the โ€œFood Pandaโ€ IOS Application. Ranging from Fast Food to Thai, I can find everything under my thumb. All I need to do is choose from my favorite restaurant and post my order. Honestly speaking, I donโ€™t really like making phone calls for food delivery. It wastes a lot of time and usually the instructions are well neglected by the call representatives. On the other hand, food panda lets me enjoy my love for food without making things complicated. You can keep your eyes on your watch and before the last minute of the given time is over, you will hear your door bell ring. You can smell the fresh food from under your door.

3

Using food panda application allows me to get my concentration back at my work within a minimum of 5 or maximum to 10 minutes, if I get confused in what I have to order. Once you have put your hands on the application, you wonโ€™t feel the need of looking anywhere else. I enjoy my food while watching different reviews or reading articles which allows me to be productive even in the laziest of moments. I stay close to my work and the people following me because both of us can connect to each other that way. And thatโ€™s how the Perfect Day Cookie Crumbles ๐Ÿ˜‰

Shan Foods 3min TVC Gone Viral – Eid and Experience of living abroad

Shan Foods TVC has come up with a brilliant concept in one of their recent commercial which has hit the social media as a storm. It is one of the fastest spreading commercials which went viral in just 3 days since its upload. Teary eyes of millions, who have been sharing the video and tagging their loved ones, go through the same emotions just as displayed in the commercial.

11428083_960368820680151_6503210665237119774_n

Shan Foods Masalas, for ages, has been the top priority for every household. If i re-call my childhood, Shan Masalas were a common finding in every delicious meal i ate. In fact i have seen my relatives barging around to carry it abroad with them as they couldn’t survive without it and their food felt incomplete ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank God that Shan Foods items are now sold internationally as well.Anyhow, to date, I too personally prefer these items as an ingredient in my meal and then i flaunt it as if it were my fingers that carried the magic. Oh how proud it feels ๐Ÿ˜€ However, sadly everyone knows already knows the true story.

Being a marketing grad good commercials always catch my attention and indeed this one is just great *tumbs-up* Coming back to the commercial, Hats of to Oilvy & Mather Pakistan team who came up with such a unique and absolutely brilliant concept. It displays a true picture of the importance of family in ones life and that its not easy being alone abroad while everyone in their country is enjoying and celebrating. You have done justice to our compassion as you made these 3 minutes repel our emotions and respected how it truly feels to be away from family on such wonderful occasions. You make us cry yet applaud for you at the end of the tale. Even the lyrics and melody of the whole situation creates that feeling of emotional bonding.. ๐Ÿ™‚

*โ€œWoh Maula sab ki sunta hai, par kissi kissi ko chunta hai..โ€

Keep a handful of tissues with you if you haven’t already watched the commercial. You will surely need them.
