Anastasia Haul including Subculture palette

This is going to be a quick post cox I want to keep the detailings for the review part.

Anastasia launched a new palette Subculture on 25th of July and I ordered the same day. Yes, I didn’t want to wait for the reviews what so ever. I ordered 2 of their newly launched matte lipsticks too. With all this I got my order in 4 days and the delivery boy dropped the parcel on 29th of July but since I was at the Shahrukh and Anushka event in Abu Dhabi (check my blog post here if you haven’t already) , the guy dropped the parcel at reception.

I did a whole unboxing video on my Instagram and ever since I am being asked to do a palette review.. I am planning to do a review in next 2 , 3 days in sha Allah . But for now enjoy the haul. Cox honestly if I posted review first then who will see this haul post.

The palette price is $42 and the Matte lipsticks are $18 and I paid $18 for the shipping to Dubai..

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 ???

 

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

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

Sephora once again!!!

Here I am once again with a Sephora gift box which I got using my loyalty points!!

Ever since 2017, the loyalty gift boxes has gone to whole new level!! They have started giving full sizes which is amazing because you know you really work hard to get these points . We get 1 point on 10 aed , so it’s like we are investing a lot 😂😂.

So again, I had more than 1 voucher and Sephora have one more option which is by Clarins , which I am getting in few days for sure but for today I am sharing my Too Faced, rich girl obsession box which caught my eyes and I picked this immediately! I could got both but the girl at counter had little knowledge and according to her I was only eligible for 1 gift, though I can still get more boxes 😀😀😀

Rich Girl Obsession

Ok, so this box has 3 products and 2 of them are full sizes

– Too Faced better than Love mascara (full size)

– Too Faced perfect wear waterproof eyeliner (full size)

– Too Faced shadow insurance primer (deluxe)

These are the perks of black card holder and let me show you what gold card holders will get in this month gift box. I was actually drooling and all I wanted to get the gold card lol !!  Which means more shopping 🙈🙈

Look at this guys !! Such heavy duty and fully loaded box 🙈🙈

It’s a fully UD box I couldn’t spot every product but man this is amazing, and these are the types of boxes they always get 😳😳😳😳

I wish UAE Sephora comes up with the brand Stila coz I really want to get their new metallic liquid shadows

Life Goals 2017

So, 2016 is almost over and before 2017 officially get started I want to share my goals list with you all
There is so much I want from next year and I know not everything is in your control but I still want to accomplish my entire list.Not just a wishlist I also want to change few things as a personality and professionally both. So if you are interested in finding out what then keep on reading

1- To work harder as a blogger

Yes, this whole year I almost quit blogging but now I have to be back in the game, like giving my 200% to something I have always loved . And the efforts have already started because this post is being written while I am in a bus. Yay!! And now when I want to be in the game I get so many ideas like my mind actually started working lol.

2- To increase my business sale

I made a come back to my online selling business and this time it’s not just makeup. I really want to get n have a massive traffic on my page. I want to get fully loaded with orders. Initially when I was doing it was just a hobby but now its pure business. In sha ALLAH (link to my page)
Right now it’s like UAE to PAK, USA to PAK and USA to UAE. I want to work harder to earn as much as I could.

3- Start making videos

This has to be the toughest of all, I am planning to start making YouTube videos from last 2 years. The only thing that is stopping me is the confidence to come in front of camera. I do not have a inspiring accent infact I would say I have a desi accent and I don’t know if people really like to see me talking . And the next I have ZERO knowledge of video making and editing. So , that’s like a challenge for me 😀

4- Start working on biggest plan

This I don’t want to reveal but just to be on point. I have been planning something for quite a long time and now I think I should jump into it. Because I do think *waqt kam muqabla sakht*

this was all related to my work  and yes none of the goals involve any luxury because I want to earn to have all that in my life and I want 2017 to be that year for me.

5- Change me a bit

I have always been confident and extrovert but now I have become intrvert all over. I really need to be more social and make more real life friends.

6- Start Quran daily

Right now, I am lacking in this and I really need to fix it. And I want you guys to pray for me too. I want to start Quran with proper tafseer too In sha ALLAH

This is it for now, I want this post to be checklist for next year.I hope 2017 be bright and amazing for everyone and may you all get what you aim for AMEEN

Do share atleast one of your goal in the comments below
