So, today I am going to talk to you about 3 of my most favorite and handy lipsticks when it comes to hangouts, night events, shopping days out, lunch, or parties. I gifted myself with these three very pigmented yet beautiful textured lip colors by

Biryani: Our Friday Ritual

Biryani has a great influence in our Friday rituals since I opened my eyes in this world. Every Friday, like a lot of other Pakistani Desi mothers, My Mother also sets to cook biryani as a compulsion. It’s like, it is not Friday if there is no Biryani. As I was born in KSA ( Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) and here, Friday is what we call our weekend, our weekly holiday and it has also been my father’s only WHOLE day at home, so, My mother just like a good wife knows that the path to my father’s heart is through his stomach and his stomach is addicted to friday Biryanis since forever. So, there is no leave for us (women) on weekends or holidays in typical desi families. What our mothers do and teach us to do as well is, on friday, when everyone else is enjoying their friday SUPER LOOONG sleeps ( that we can only envy), after your daily religious ritual (wudhu, 2 raka’a of nafal and some azkaar) she steps inside the kitchen. From there on she makes breakfast, washes dishes, help my family’s men get ready to go for Jummuah Prayers and then the Weekly Biryani Tradition starts with all the aroma of fried onion, garlic, spices and all that Tarka(frying), Bhunna (roasting) and Dum. And this rich, delicious and spicy rice and chicken’s dish is ready by the time, The Males of Home get back to home and then they’re served the lunch, that is, this so very tempting BIRYANI (believe me, I’m drooling even with the thought of it). And this biryani ritual goes on and on. This was about my Friday, what’s your Friday’s lunch ritual. Share with me by commenting below.

IMG_20170720_173257.jpg

I love mangoes in any form and shape, cubes, slices, smoothies, juices, ice creams or shakes. And the best thing about them is, they make everything taste sooo delicious no matter what we make out of them. I am a kind whose liquid intake is always high, I love juices, drinks and stuff. And as I have previously discussed benefits of mangoes in Day#1 and Day#2 of our mango talk, how they open for us Gate towards better health and beauty, I really prefer myself increasing my mango consumption but for the sake of mango love, DON’T JUDGE, hehe.

My Hand and Foot Care Regime.

I have been so weird person when it comes to beauty, I mean, when someone say beauty, the first thing that pops in our mind is face, complexion, features and all. But I never bothered to take care of my flawless facial skin and kept all my focus towards hands and feet. The picture you’re looking at the very top of this blog are some of the products that are always at my side table and I recommend them too. Because I found nothing soo promising when it comes to cracked heels, hand care or cuticles. But they work Continue reading “My Hand and Foot Care Regime.”

Mango Talk: Day#2

“Keep Calm and Eat Aam”. Mango a.k.a Aam, a fruit so juicy and scrumptious that I can’t keep my hands away from it, it’s like we share such a strong bond that whenever there is mango, there is definitely me. I ate mangoes to satisfy my taste bud craving its juiciest pulp but now when I know that its in my good interest to eat them, I’ve increased my consumption with 2x. You know it’s rich with vitamins

My E-shopping Tale: Makeup Review

dav

I am a moderate shopping freak just like any of you, but when it comes to online shopping I usually hesitate because I really don’t want to waste my money on something not worth buying. I’ve been afraid of online shopping since so long, there have been times when I cancelled my already shipped order before they reached me, right away (too bad, i know). Online shopping was one hell of a task for me and I failed to achieve it every time. You know, it’s difficult to trust especially when it comes to virtual stuff, to input your credit card’s info. and I really don’t suggest putting your credit card’s info at every other site but only the trusted ones. I came out of my shell one year back and started shopping online on few sites and my experience with them have been quite well. Let me  tell you about one of the best e-shopping site I personally experienced Continue reading “My E-shopping Tale: Makeup Review”

Mango Talk! Day#1

When life gives you lemons, throw them back and say, “I said I wanted a Mango!” I mean, of course who wants lemon when it’s the season of the king of fruits, MANGO! Though I’m not a summer person because I live in a place where it’s literally like I am not on earth but mercury, my taste buds always make me wish for summers to land my planet sooner, because I am in True Love with them, my and mangoes’ love is like the purest of its kind. And may be they’re everyone’s favorite and if there is someone alien out there who doesn’t love them, Oh dear, I am sorry to say but you need a thorough checkup. Just Kidin’ . Anyhoo! Mangoes are not just yummiest and juicy but they’re enriched with a lot of benefits

Happy “No Dry Skin Days”: Ultra Healing

IMG_20170715_143922.jpg

Dry skin is one of the skin advantage as well as disadvantage I’ve. The only advantage I  think I have is that there is “NO ENTRY” for acne. But I get even more irritated by those flaky, dry patches across cheeks and other areas. I wasn’t feeling hydrated even after moisturizing my skin. Well! you know what possibly can be more annoying than spending money on all those expensive moisturizers and not getting satisfactory results. In this quest of good moisturizers I was aware of what I need but I wasn’t sure where I can find all those miraculous ingredients in one combo. I needed, actually we all with dry skin need Continue reading “Happy “No Dry Skin Days”: Ultra Healing”
