The MIRANDA SINGS Award 2016!

Welcome to the CI examinations being conducted by the British Council!
Candidates, you are here to take…… .!!!!!!

Yes, my fellow readers and bloggers, this is what has been happening in my life over the past month. Sigh 😦
One more to go, but TECHNICALLY I see myself free from this torture as my last CIE is of the English Language which somehow is manageable, unlike, the ever so distressing Business Studies, *ew*

Anyhoo, life is full of surprises and I amidst all the exam stress was elated to the sight of the surprise presented by Glamorous Etoiles in the face of nomination for Miranda Sings Award. So, my friend, a big virtual hug and thank you for this opportunity :). Guys, you got to check her blog, it’s really engaging!

The Rules:

  1. Announce your nomination with a post, including a link to the blogger who nominated you! Include the featured image on your blog.
  2. Nominate ten other blogs and link the nominees in your post
  3. List seven things you love about yourself (e.g. your appearance, personality, achievements, etc.), but don’t use negative comparisons!

I love how it drives a sense of positivity in oneself. Its emphasize on how to be comfortable and love your own skin, is what makes this tag distinctive of all! It  made me realize how little time we gave ourselves to acknowledge our very own skin; it’s important to spend time with yourself. Guys, that “me-time” is really very essential.

So, let’s hit it!!!! 😀

The Seven Things I LOVE About Myself:

  1. I have my priorities set; I live by them. The first in the hierarchy is my Family.
  2. I am a good listener.
  3. I always consider the impact my decisions would cast on my loved ones.
  4. I am emotional, I value them. (Love-hate relationship with this factor of mine :D)
  5. I am a strong advocate of “fashion and modesty goes hand in hand”.
  6. I eat almost everything except a few things; not at all fussy. When I say few, I mean a little count.
  7. I do not settle for less.

I, hereby, nominate

The Jouska. 
Jessica Jade Beauty.
Glam It Up.
Fun House Vision.

I actually nominate everyone for this tag :). I can’t get enough of the positive vibes it is generating!!

Until next time friends,
Love and fairy-dust all the way!❤.

Just Concealer Things – Review Post

Sawadika! 🙂 (Thai obsession)

If you ask me what is that first place in my travel bucket-list , then it, my friend, is THAILAND!

Thailand’s on my mind these days! *dreamy sigh*
Everything is so picturesque about it… .

Ah… .I guess I must stop gushing about it and head straight towards the point of this post; because guys, when it I talk about my Thailand obsession, I daydream, and when you daydream then you can do nothing else :P.

Well, today, the post is dedicated to “Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer.” I am in shade “030-Classic Beige.”

Rimmel London 2

Claim: Banish the signs of fatigue and illuminate the eye area. With an oxygen complex. Lets skin breathe.

Packaging: It comes in a cutsie wee fawn colored tube in combo with the color blue. It’s sleek and slender, with a brush applicator inside.

Rimmel London
My thoughts: First and foremost, I am quite impressed by the way the consistency is formulated. Girls, it has a great coverage to offer, yet it feels light-weight and it does not at all give that heavy-ish feel. To sum up, it sure fulfills the “concealer” claim. As far as the highlighting part is concerned, for me it does not live up to its claim; I did not, to my utter disappointment, get that brightness or the illuminating effect that it claims to offer .

The sun’s lost its temper here in Karachi, and this concealer manages to battle the searing heat for about good 5-6 hours. And the best part is, it, at least in my opinion, does not appear cake-y upon application and I even did not see it creasing.

The applicator is similar to that of L.A girl pro HD concealers; the downside is common. It is so much of a heck to control the product when you squeeze the tube for the product to flow out. You may end up wasting it and mannnn, it hurts!

It is priced at PKR 565 and I got mine from Chase Value Centre, Karachi. Affordable and perfection; that’s what Rimmel’s about.

PROS:
-Light-weight.
-Pocket and travel- friendly.
-Does not appear cakey.
-Does not feel heavy.
-Affordable

CONS:
-The quantity should have been more.
-Hard to handle the squeeze tubing.
-Does not live up to its claim of highlighting.

I highly recommend this product and look forward to hearing about your experiences with this Lil buddy! 🙂

Until next time lovelies,
Love and fairy-dust all the way! ❤

Some Blogger Talk! :)

Hello Beautylilies!

Awarding each other with tags has been a trend for long. And I absolutely enjoy such interactions where we get to see different people with different personalities, but one common goal and that’s to generate”Good Vibes Only.”

So, let’s just unite once more to bring up the spirits of those ladies whose convictions about their blog has been down for a while and are on some real motivation-hunt.

I am sure, amidst your blogging journey, there must have been a second in your life where the thought of giving up on your blog just because it’s not going the way you expected it to be crossed your minds. And I insist you all to please share with us as to why and what led to such a thought. In spite of this thought, why did you still decide to hold up on your blog and kept going with it? What kept you going and how did you kill those nasty demotivating demons inside of you?

I look forward to a fruitful and a thoughtful interaction lovelies!

Love and fairy-dust all the way! ❤

Summer DIY!

Summer is that kingdom, of which Karachi is the king!
And I was a happy commoner residing within it until the  King declared war with its own people, defying the love and loyalty we have always had to offer. 😦

My slogan: Beat the Heat!
Their slogan: Heat shall prevail!

During the face-off on the battle ground, they started shooting their oily missiles, but fear not friends; I outnumbered them! 😉

Here, I bring you one strategy to combat the opponent if any such thing happens to you :).
egg

Grab an egg, separate the whites from the yolk and  apply the whites evenly onto your face. Let it dry. Apply a second layer and again leave it to dry. After you have applied the third layer and that too has dried, wash it off thoroughly with water. And voila, the victory shall be at your feet ;). You will slowly experience a reduced oil-skin and upon application twice a week, a drastic change shall be evident.

I hope this helps you out and you get your due rights like me :D. Please do share your experiences in the comment section with me!

Love you all!
