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..

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.

Khussay Kahani

Do you know why I named this post Khussay Kahani because I am a hoarder of Khussa’s . I wanted to name this post differently and I asked people to share the ideas but I didn’t get anything attracted infact very fewer people respond. So, I have to focus myself and decided this..

As it says Kahaani , I have to share background story. When I was young like during my school time, I had very slim feet with a long thumb and none of the shoes used to fit me. Every sandals /slippers use to be loose especially from front. So I had to buy with the buckle at the end. With this Khussay were the my only hope. And since the khussay do not have shape initially and they turn according to your feet shape , I started enjoy wearing them. And my comfort level also raised with time.

When I was in University , we had to walk alot as you all know how big Karachi University is.. and trust me or not mostly I use to wear and walk in khussa’s . I remember my boss in the office use to say how the hell you walk in them in Uni..so basically besides likeness they are SUPER COMFORTABLE for me. (like i love heels but i cant walk in them for long)

Now its time to move to this post kahaani.

We dubai people are blessed with GLOBAL VILLAGE and this year when I went for the first time I saw amazing khussa’s in INDIAN pavilion. And they were all reasonable too. I picked only 1 pair but after coming back home I wanted to get more :D. So, next time I especially went to buy more. And then I got 2 more….Hehe!!!

So now if you wants to see the picture then just scroll down to see the pictures …
