I have lived a good portion of my adult life in the beautiful city of Karachi.This city has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment.Parks , shopping malls , cinemas, restaurants , and of course the amazing coastline . But to me the most unique thing about Karachi are its eclectic weekend bazaars that sprout up around different parts of the city on Saturday and Sunday.The best known of these is the Sunday market in DHA.
It has everything that a person can desire , from the mundane (fruits , veggies , grocery items ) to the exotic (antiques , jewellery , electronics). Shoes , bags , scarves , clothes you name it .It is a bargain hunters paradise.The only thing i wouldn't advise buying is the makeup.Its all FAKE.If you are from Karachi and have never visited than you are missing a real treat and if you are a visitor , don't miss a trip here for anything

This is another eye gel that we have been trying for the last few weeks.It is a pretty straight forward product in my opinion so i think i have got the hang of what it is all about even though i still have to finish the whole tube.

Summer is the time for new beginnings and a complete change in skin care priorities.Where winter is all about moisture and keeping the dry and damaged skin at bay , summer is about going light and not trying so hard :-)
Summers here in Karachi are all about sunshine (sometimes brutally so) . Oily T zones , acne and sun burns become the disasters to avoid by anyone who cares about their skin.
Below i have compiled a list of all the products that i use on a daily basis during summer months.My priority is nice looking , hydrated skin.

Clinians is not a brand i was familiar with before trying this eye cream. But i decided to get my self two of its eye creams just to see how my skin reacted to the products and if i should replace my current eye cream.

Freeman Facial Clay Mask
"Chocolate & Strawberry"
I am a regular user of the Freeman facial mask range but i usually go for the cucumber one .This time i decided to go for something a little different and try the clay mask with chocolate and strawberry.

Since Garnier has become available locally in Pakistan , a wide range of its products have flooded the market.The most prominent ones being from the "fairness" range .We got to try this face wash purely by luck because we got this one instead when we ran out of our regular Clean & clear.

Sorry for being MIA for the last few months but with exams on the horizon didn't have any choice but to cut back on blogging.We were running low on bunch of stuff so we treated ourselves to a small haul from "just4girls". Here is what we got......

Frizz is a big problem when living in hot and humid climate such as ours.Hair needs a lot of moisture and conditioning in order for it to look even remotely presentable (at least mine does). I got "Palmer's Olive oil conditioning spray" in the hopes of finding something that would do the job without weighing the hair down.

This is the first time for me trying something from Wet n wild.I have been meaning to get my hands on these lipsticks for some time now.I got two colors , "think pink" & "bare it all".

Its the time of the year for lip balms ....Right?The weather is getting cooler , lips are dry and chapped so what better to add to your daily routine than another lip balm ;-)

Vaseline is a brand that is very readily available in Karachi (as well as the rest of Pakistan). Vaseline petroleum jelly is a house hold necessity in my opinion.The brand has quite an extensive body lotion range as well.Every time i go to the mall i see a new one.This one i got a few weeks back to combat the dryness of the weather.

A good kohl liner is a necessary part of anyone's make up arsenal , whether its summer or winter. I have tried a bunch of eyeliners over the years , from various brands but there is always something to gripe about. This time around i was in a hurry and wanted something without the added wait that comes with pre ordering stuff through facebook or asking a friend to get it for me from abroad.So i went on just4girls.pk and had a look.They are stocking some really nice products and its always fun to browse around.But i had to decide on something that was good , affordable and available for instant delivery.So after alot of research i decided on "Artdeco Soft Eyeliner in Black".

Tinted moisturizers and bb creams have always been more preferable to me than full coverage foundations.So when i got the chance to try out this new bb cream from Garnier , i was really excited :-)

Last few months have been very hard on my wallet ;-) So i am sharing a few of my latest purchases with you guys.I am mentioning approximate prices to the best of my memory as all the stuff was not bought at the same time..

Making a hair bun is an easy and elegant way of getting out of the usual hair style rut that one gets into with the same hair style daily.Also it is the best solution to a bad hair day.You can make one simply by twisting your hair and wounding it around in a doughnut shape and securing with hair pins.The issue with going this route is that if you have long / heavy hair , the hair style wont hold for too long.So here are two ways that help me keep my hair bun in mint condition the whole day :-)

I am a complete novice when it comes to Magnetic Nail polishes so when i saw these at the beauty counter , i ended up buying this one more out of curiosity than anything else.

I having been meaning to get my hands on one of these concealer wheels since i first read a blogpost on the Kryolan ones , a few months back .I am a big believer in the power of a concealer and getting all this versatility in a single product was too good to pass ;-)

I wont be exaggerating when i say that i have been using this forever.I have tried a few other brand but i have always come back to St Ives Apricot scrub.

Believe it or not but this is the first bronzer i have owned .Previously i either did not contour or used a blush or an eye shade to get the job done.But since i have seen a lot of fellow bloggers doing such a great job with contouring, i thought i should take it a bit more seriously ;-)
