Magical Times at Dolmen Mall

Pakistan’s first international standard mall, Dolmen mall, is renowned for always staying a step ahead of its competitors. As summer 2016 approached its end, Dolmen hosted the city’s biggest Back to School Festival. Held from 29 th to 31 st July 2016 across all three Dolmen Malls, the festival aimed at school going kids and families; giving them a chance to celebrate and be excited about the beginning of another scholastic year.

The Marketing Head at Dolmen, Anum Nadeem said, “We’re holding this event for the first time and are expecting families to shop, eat and have fun. We’ve brought together some great shopping options for our customers.”

At Dolmen Mall Clifton, the Back to School edition of the Dolmen Bazaar saw leading retailers like Hub, Leisure Club, Kidz Dunya & Sindbad as well as budding entrepreneurial ventures like Magic Hands and Paperworks showcase their Back to school range. From school bags, notebooks and stationery to a delightful display of balloon art, the little ones thoroughly enjoyed themselves in this maze of amazement. Parents, on the other hand, rejoiced the rare opportunity for their kids to have fun in a safe and family-friendly environment.

Adding some magic to the cauldron of excitement, Dolmen Mall conjured up the launch of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in collaboration with Liberty Books on the third day of Back to School Festival. The launch of the 8 th Harry Potter book was held on Harry Potter’s birthday, 31 st July. The response was staggering; the event saw a union of three generations of Potterheads. From five year old HP fanatics flaunting painted scars on their foreheads, to tweens donned in wizard’s robes – even grownups didn’t shy away from swishing their wands and crying out ‘Wingardium Leviosa”. Fans lined up at 9:30 AM to receive their copy of the awaited book on this unique occasion where Harry Potter fandom was so majestically celebrated in Pakistan. Thematic décor, wands, hats, trivia games, giveaway for the best dressed fans and countless photo opportunities with a truly magical ambience and music, the event was a memorable one.

Dolmen Mall capitalized on the organic pull of Harry Potter fandom and took Back to School Festival to a whole new level. The event exceeded expectation on all fronts, and provided visitors with three days of festivity in a completely family-friendly environment. Dolmen aims to continue surprising its visitors with more such events in the future.

Bloggers and Key Opinion Leaders were hosted by Dolmen Mall and given out special Harry Potter themed giveaways. They shared the impact the book has had on their lives and also relived their back to school memories. They were provided refreshments in the form of crispy and grilled chicken from Golden Chick and delicious cupcakes and coffee from Lals. Everyone left the vicinity of the mall happy and content, with their copy of their favourite book with them.

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!❤.

Wish me good luck everyone, pretty please??? ❤

So it’s 9:15 a.m here and this was supposed to be my study time, but who cares!! Blogging all the wayyyy… . 😀

Well, I’d like to take this opportunity *okay this is too formal*
Wellll.. ladiesss the feeling of seeing your work recognized is out of this world and I, Alhumdulillah, got to feel that feeling (if I make sense,LOL).

There was this article I wrote and earnestly wanted it to get recognized; sent to an online portal and got rejected, there my heart sank. But I did not lose hope *winks*. I sent to another portal and yippeee!!! They accepted :’) *halo on the head*

My article: http://www.parhlo.com/do-we-really-need-more-shopping-malls/

This article is a piece of my heart! I have been longing to speak on this matter, and who can have the guts to suppress the power of pen 😉

Over to you now 🙂 Give it a read and tell me what do you think about it?

It’s 9:26 a.m and I think I should get to my books; Alevel’s calling ! Hence, here I am signing off. *sigh*

A biggie virtual hug ❤

From the heart

I had the time of my life today 🙂

Amidst all the CIE tension and tough studying hours, I and my friends took some time out and met. Oh my, how time flies!!!!

It felt only yesterday that we were in school, trying our best to get rid of the O’level bug…. .only to get stung by the A’level bug.

Sigh!!!

We spent good 3-4 hours together and in those few hours, I rediscovered myself. Life is so short, and we spend the half of it wearing that unnecessary cap of stress and tensions. We have gotten ourselves TRAPPED; some under studies, some under work pressure and the list goes on and on.

I did not know that I was craving for these few hours of laughter and togetherness. I had taken those lemons too seriously that life brought in I forgot that once squeezed, it turns into lemonade which is meant to rejuvenate you.

So there you go people! When life gives you lemon, make lemonade ;). Let your hair loose, meet your loved ones and savour this ultimate gift we all call LIFE which God has given you. Sometime all you need is a best friend therapy or the hug from your mother, and trust me the world seems better 🙂 Well.. at least it did for me and I wish the same for you.
