Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in Abu Dhabi

The post title says everything, Shahrukh Khan along with Anushka Sharma came to Abu Dhabi’s Dalma Mall on Saturday for promotion their upcoming movie ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’.

I was fortunate enough to get the media invite for covering the event. The event time was 6:00 pm and we reached before time thinking that we will make it to the stage. When we reached the people around were minimal but in no time the entire mall got filled with thousands of people. Shahrukh revealed that how excited he is to see 27,000 people.

Anyways, even though having a media card we were not allowed to go near the stage area and me and my husband made our way to elevators and luckily we covered the event. Honestly I am blessed that we got that area because the amount on rush was crazy.

Being honest I was there only for anushka, I am a die-hard fan of her acting. I think she is one of the most versatile actress not just with her roles but also with her looks.

By the time both the super star came it was 8:15 pm already and the crowd was out of control by then. The security tried to manage but 27k is a big number and we all know how crazy Shahrukh fans we have. The management did try to hold the audience by entertaining them with different dances of Shahrukh Khan’s movies.

When Shahrukh and Anuskha reached the stage OMG I was so happy to see them. At first I was looking at how hot is anushka. She is just PERFECT. And Mr Khan was asusual so smart. He greeted the audience by saying ASALAM-O-ALAIKUM . They received the gifts from the event organizers and then Shahrukh also entertained the audience with his famous dialogues from his movies. They did dance on a song BEECH BEECH which is from their upcoming movie ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’

In the meantime I got the chance to give an interview for THE NATIONAL which is a UAE based newspaper.You can find the link to the article here. and the video link here.

Here are some more pictures from the event and in the end you all will find a video which I made by combining my insta videos.

Just look at how gorgeous she is <3

While signing their pictures
BEECH BEECH song and the dance

Just look at the crowd

Now, comes to the point where I LOVED MR KHAN. He was so much fun , down to earth through out and he requested people so sweetly to move back and don’t push and give space to ladies and kids. I am glad I got a chance to see him LIVE cox now I am also one of HIS FAN (which I was not initially)

 

Last but not the least ME

 

If you guys enjoyed this post then do share your comments and tell me have you ever seen Shahrukh or Anushka in real and ya do watch the movie in cinemas on 4th August 2017

 

Anfas Collection by Asim-al-qassim

You all know I love going to events. And I love them even more after being at home 24/7. Honestly being a house wife is the toughest job on this planet. And after this tough job these events make me feel breathe and fresh.

In Ramadan I got a chance to attend an event happened in Dubai Festival City at Beautique.This is first time when I attended any perfume launch.

Very famous Emirati architect plus perfumer Asim Al Qassim launched his new collection name Anfas (The essence of Arabian home) . I loved the whole idea and the collection is based on 6 exotic perfumes.

In this post I will share the event details and in next post will be about our goodie bag.

Our launch venue

No they are not Paan , they are chocolates ❤❤

Ok, so I said it was ramadan and it was 27th night and all I wanted to get free early so that I can come home on time for my prayers. And since in ramadan all events happened after Iftar it takes a lot of time. But I was so glad we got free right on time. The event timings was 9:30 pm we reached at 10:00 pm and got free by 11:00 am.

Asim-al-Qassim telling us  about his collection

The Anfas team made us test and smell all the 6 perfumes during Asim was explaining each of them , and this was such a great experience smelling them along with the background of each fragrance .

A little chit chat session with the great entrepreneur

He was sweet to tell me that he really hope we like these fragrances as he has put a lot of efforts in it. And he told me that he will be giving one of out of these 6 as a gift. ( Sweet na )

Now let’s see the names below .

1.  Shaghaf– it has a hint of ginger and cinnamon. Now I love the combo of these two but this has something else too which I can’t identify.

2.    Sa’adah– it has fruity plus woody combo. Or I should say it’s like a combo of citrus fruit and wood.

3.   Samaha– this is my fav, it is completely floral but not over powering  . I am not a big fan of only floral smell but this one is amazing I swear.

4.   Salam– ok so amber is easy to identify , it has definitely amber with jasmine in it.

5.   Rahaba– this is my second fav, I cannot figure out exactly what it has but I could smell amber with some sweet flavor.

6.  Mahabah– It has floral plus vanilla. If you are a fond of vanilla fragrance then you will love it.

All these perfumes have amazing packaging which I will share in my next post. And the price of each bottle is 850 aed. I know it’s a lot but we all know perfumes are pretty expensive.

Ok, so now until next post  comment below and make a guess which perfume I would have got in goodie bag.

 

 

 

 

 

#GOTonOSN

Who else is also  obsessed about GAME OF THRONES??

I am totally obsessed and that’s all because of my husband. Last year when season 6 was about to come he made me watch all 5 seasons in one flow just cox he wanted me to watch season 6 with him. I admit that in start I felt gross and thought how senseless it is but in no time I got hooked to it lol. And those few days I was allowed not to cook food cox concentration was important hehe. But honestlyy I enjoyed it alot and after season 5 ending when Jon Snow was supposing-ly dead i could understand how people would have wait for whole year to see if he is going to be alive again or not.

This year I am thinking to do reviews on each episode. I know episode 1 has already on aired and there are tons of reviews already but I just want to do out of my GOT love.. What do you guys say? Should I???

But today’s post is about this activity happening here in Dubai Festival City Mall. The same activity happened last year too and we did last year too. Basically Dubai Festival City Mall is having a small set of Iron Throne where people can get their picture clicked and can a print out and a soft copy on email addresses. The whole activity is sponsored  by OSN. They are also doing some episodes premier on the screen but it didn’t happen yesterday .

This is how the set looks like

And here comes the lady on the throne aka Nida Arshad. The guy on my left is Jon Snow and the girl is Missandei LOL.

Lady Nida of Iron Throne 2017

Now here is last year picture.

Lady Nida on Throne2016

I know people will call us crazy but both the years we went especially for the picture.

Just comment below if  you guys want to read and see the reviews of each episode here on blog. And to all who are crazy like us enjoy the second episode tomorrow.

 

 

 

Outfit Post

MThere was a time when I used to enjoy writing , cox writing was the only way of expressing myself but as time is moving by I think I am being more introvert which is not good at all. I can’t express what I feel either vocal or in written.If anyone of you have gone through this phase and know how to handle it then do comment and share your opinion in the comment section below.

My today’s post is just going to be an outfit post which is more pictorial. These are the dresses which I wore on this Eid 2017.

I asked my designer Ishtiaq Afzal to get it stitched for me. He did all the purchases and got it ready for me on urgent cox we suddenly planned of not going to Pakistan for Eid.

– My first dress is the pastel green with organza shirt with a chiffon dupatta and lawn trouser.

 

Dress – Gulahmed Eid Collection 2017

Shoes – Debenhems

– My second dress is a black printed shirt and embroidered trouser (the embroidery is only on one side) with a printed silk dupatta. This is a baggy style shirt with straight trouser

Dress – Sana Safinaz Muzlin Collection 2017

Shoes- Vincci

Which dress you liked the most ?? I loved both but the black one came out extremely beautiful in pictures. What do you think ???

 

Pouring my heart out!!

(Shez no more , she left this world the very next morning I post this)

Sometimes you need a jerk in life to make sure you are not heading towards wrong direction. That jerk does not always have to be in your life, but it can be with anyone and all you need is to put yourself in that space !! And I understand you can not always put yourself manually and feel it. It just happens from Allah. And today something happened EXACTLY like this.

I was cursing my professional life 2 days back so badly that I wanted to QUIT everything and was into so much depression and stress that all I could see the NEGATIVITY around me (*please don’t bash cox seriously it’s not easy to express your weak times in front of world*) .

Today when I am writing this post , my fingers are moving fast on my phone keypad and I am not even thinking what and how I should write. The pain I am feeling right now is unbearable and I honestly feel it’s just started to get worst and all I thought to write whatever I feel!!

Now what this is all about, start reading now!!

A very sweet girl is in very critical condition and she is in ICU with some undiagnosed Brain Infection. Her name is Yumna Babar!!

Well I never met her in person but she’s my friend’s friend and an admin on one of Facebook group and also a member of others groups. Now I am not into much of all the groups so I had no idea what’s going on unless I read my friend’s Facebook status !!

My fingers now have started shivering and my eyes are all wet coz I just read one of her old post which she posted on April 7, and whatever she wrote it shook me from inside. I want all of you to read this !!

The reason I have shared with you all that she is again in hospital and very critical as per resources and trust me she needs us , the second reason I shared it here publicly is because I want to use all my social access to pray for her!! She is too young to suffer all this .

Please recite ‘ya salamo’ and ‘ayat-e-karima’ as much as you can and share this post with friends and if not the post then do ask your friends to pray for her!!!! 

TishTash Beauty,Health & Wellness Press Day

26th April 2017, TishTash organized an event which included beauty ,health and wellness all together. It was a full day activity distributed in different time slots.

We had to book our desired slot and I booked the Beauty one ( for obvious reason). I wanted the health one too but I knew I couldn’t do workout with all fit ladies there.(*sigh*)

The event was at Pure Sky Lounge Hilton Hotel at JBR.. now I don’t know if I have ever said that but JBR is my most favorite place in DUBAI.. Yes, I always wanted to have an apartment there because of so many reasons. I can be there anytime and since I have always visited JBR at night it was a great experience to witness the view in daytime and yes it looked equally beautiful. I think I should plan a breakfast plan with my friends someday.

So, like always I took the cab and went straight to the venue. Firstly I went to the Hilton Hotel but then I found out that the venue location was at  Hilton Hotel Apartments, which was right across the street.

As soon I entered, the place was full of colors , full of lovely people and the tishtash people were super professional I must say. I literally had to figure out from which side I should start because everything was on POINT. So I decided to go with the flow and visited all the stations one by one.

Ban.do

Ban.do is brand that makes funky clothes, accessories, stationary, gifts. Their station was the most colorful of all.

The Nail Pavilion

Nail Pavilion is a nail salon in JLT , they were giving free manicures and padicures too. I didn’t got because of Namaz. But if I could I would love to get neon nails.

Farm House Fresh

This was one of my favorite station because of the products they had. FHF is a pure organic and vegan brand which has huge range of skin care and body care. I also got full arms massage and trust me I felt like getting a whole body massage (*sigh*). She used oil + lotion together and my skin instantly got hydrated and plumped.

Reine Michi

I always felt good when someone initiate with their own brand and this girl who is also a member of tishtash team came up with her own natural, vegan, handmade and ethical skin care and beauty brand. She also gave us her best seller sugar scrub for trial which I have started using and will definitely write a review on blog.

Honestly I am not into hair brands cox I never get any hair styling but it was interesting to know about hair care brands. This brand is famous for their protein treatment and styling products.

Fillerina

We all know about fillers but this is something different. Its a Derma Cosmetic Fillers that can be used by anyone at home and without any pain. Basically it does not include injections but the tool does look like an injection though. I so want to try it.

And besides this they also have skin care products. The girl also suggested me 2 products considering my skin.

Brand is available at Super Care pharmacy!!

Show Beauty

Another luxurious hair brand. This brand has the most sexiest packaging. Can you all believe how ignorant person I am when I was told about hair perfumes. Yes,  I first time encountered that there are hair perfumes as well. And man I tried it on my hijab (obv cox my hair were not open) and I fell in love with the fragrance.

The Hair Perfume is in my wishlist now  😀

Brand is available at Bloomingdales Dubai.

Lipstick Queen

A new brand for me but with very interesting background. Poppy who is the owner of the brand couldn’t find her style of shades in lipsticks brands and then she decided to come up with her own range (that’s fascinating na)

Brand is available in Bloomingdales Dubai

Love Shop Pray

First can we just focus on the name of the brand, isn’t it catchy? I always get attracted to unique names. Its a designer brand that have clothes, shoes and accessories.

Herbal Essentials

I always wanted to get my skin test done and luckily I got the chance at their station. The moment she started the test I was praying to get not so bad results. Yes, I know my skin is pretty bad but I was hoping not to see worst results.

My result said that my skin is dry and inside the skin I have oil glands which means that my skin is basically dehydrated because of less water in take. She suggested me 2 products and lots of water. I will get the suggested products because the brand is affordable too. Phew the results were not bad, atleast I can make it better t with water intake.

Brand is available at Super Care and many other pharmacies in UAE.

Oh , how can I forget to share the snack corner. I didn’t eat anything but the snack corner had lot of healthy and yummy options.

And Other Stories – Store Launch

This post is going to be bit different and in long time I have not written about any launches because I NEVER attended any!! So, this Wednesday I went to a store launch with another blogger friend named Nida Moughal who is a life style blogger and who came to attend few events all the way from Pakistan.

& other stories is a fashion brand from accessories, makeup, clothing, fragrances, shoes, bags to undergarments and its a brand under H&M Group (even I didn’t know this). They opened their store in DUBAI MALL at GRAND FASHION ATRIUM and the timings of the event was from 6pm-9pm.

I went to the mall and then me and Nida got ready at Sephora, I actually just wore my lashes and fixed my makeup where as Nida got her complete makeupover.. It was amazing because the makeup artist used all new products on her.

Once we entered the store I was amazed that how big it was and I completely lost it lol.. I had to figure it out from where should I start taking pictures for blog coverage . And yes, one more thing the entire store was on 25% sale and since everyone knows I only like to shop on makeup and clothes and trust me I was getting crazy with the clothing line. I even saw few amazing pieces but I had to stop myself but I couldn’t stop myself for getting something from their makeup line. I will post the details of my shopping in next few post In sha ALLAH.

Ok, you all know me I focus on visuals more and here I am with lots of events pictures so that you guys can have a virtual tour of the store <3..

Yes, we were served lemonade as soon we entered the store and the best part was we could take the bottles with us and I actually brought one to home (*sigh*)
It was a choice between lemonade and flower juice ( i forgot the name I am sorry) but both were refreshing and chilled..
The drinks stall

I don’t know why but I love this
Here you go with another yummy fruit yogurt lolly…
It was not good but atleast it looked good in picture ..hehe

Ok ! so beside all these, the store has amazing collection of hand wash, body scrubs, hand creams and perfume oils too…

I tried the Havana Blues flavor and though I am not a regular user of hand soaps I still loved the fragrance and it was really long lasting.It stayed on my hand until I washed my hands next
Anyone whose into body scrubs should try them , they smell divine
You all have to believe me in 159 aed these perfumes smell divine and each and every fragrance is DEADLY… I know this price was on 25% off and I wanted to buy them but I control
I wished they had something for Men too cox I really wanted to get something for my MAN
Me with Nida (Highlife Shenanigans)

Like all other events , this event also had picture booth and I took these two and yes they also gave us in printed form. The photographers there also took our pictures but I didn’t have it yet and I hope I’ll get it soon (*fingers crossed*)

Now lets move to the makeup section, their range includes nail colors, lipsticks, lip balm, lip and cheek stains , eye colors, eye pencils,mascara’s,curler and according to the brand they also have foundations but I couldn’t find any that day.. May be I missed.

I missed taking pictures of entire makeup range but anytime soon if  I visit the store again I will take the pictures for sure I promise.

The best part of events are goodie bags of course and here is the sneak peek of what I got from the brand itself.

Three flavorful hand creams. 1- Moroccan Tea, 2- Punk Bouquet, 3-Fig Fiction
