Valentine Girl

MY OOTD: Dress TFNC London | Earrings, Ring & Wedding Band Devji Since 1950 | Watch Titan | Make up @Masooma_makeup | Hair @waheeda_hairstylist
RAJ'S OOTD: Suit Bobby's Fashions | Watch Titan Edge | Wedding Band Devji Since 1950

Some of you may feel that Valentines Day is another hallmark holiday, however for me it's always been a special day, as its my birth date. So it's always tricky to find the perfect dress to celebrate both the occasions.

Couple of weeks ago I was re-watching the ultimate 90s classic chick flick: Pretty Woman. One of my all time favourite scene is when Julia Roberts and co-star Richard Gere are dolled up to go to the opera. Julia was in this iconic sizzling red Marilyn Vance off shoulder gown and Richard in this fancy Tuxedo.

Inspired by this whole look, and I decided to re-create it with a my own twist. I found a similar maxi dress from TFNC London.

Hot & affordable. I knew immediately that this was the perfect dress to celebrate both birthday and Valentines day. I worked with the famous make up artist Masooma Hashim to create this hollywood glam look.

Raj is wearing a bespoke tuxedo from Bobby's Fashions. Girls, looking to get your man suited up, Bobby's Fashions is where you need to go for a blend of modern luxury and classic style.

Frozen Fairytale

 MY OOTD: Dress Zara Umrigar | Jewellery Devji Since 1950 | Make up Sawsan Aloraibi

Old hollywood glamour, the theme that resonates in Zara Umrigar's intricate collection. This gown feels like its right out of the Oscars Red Carpet. I felt like a celebrity/actress in it, hence the mood of the shoot.

The intricate detailing of the gown had me in awe. All you future-brides or girls wanting to show-stopper gown, look no further than Zara Umrigar! Im obsessed with everything in her collection!

What’s In Your NeatFreak’s Pouch - Part 1

Bag featured is The NeatFreak's Wrap Me Up Bag in Blue Turning on Purple: www.neatfreaksbysanch.com

In this series of What’s In Your Pouch, we will be looking at the must have items for your skincare and makeup routine. One of the key things we must remember  in order to ensure we get that glowy finished look every time is how we prime our face. Especially with this winter season hitting us hard our face can definitely get very dry. Without adding enough moisture to our skin, the harder it gets for the makeup to go on smoothly and create that smooth look.

After putting on  moisturizer and sunscreen, an important step in the process is to add a good primer. What a primer does is set up your face for makeup. It does this by reducing appearance of pores, fine lines, redness and creates an overall soft, blurred look to the face. This will then help when you add the different layers on your face to go on easier and stay on longer.

One of my top favorites is the Shiseido Glow Enhancing primer. It is oil free, feels like a cream, and you can notice a big difference when not using it before makeup. It also includes SPF.

Remember: It is all about finding what is right for your skin.

Not your Basic Jeans

 MY OOTD: Top Missguided (similar here) | Jeans Asos | Earrings Topshop | Sunglasses Aldo Shoes | Bag Chloe | Watch Daniel Wellington

So after travelling like a maniac for the past 5 months, I realize I am 2 months behind on my blog posts. I find myself posting about my trip to Hong Kong, which happened in October which was 3 trips ago. Sorry guys!

I wanted to brighten up the streets of Hong Kong with this colourfully cool ensemble. Bored of my basic jeans, these colourful & embroidered jeans from Zara were the perfect upgrade to take your look from simple to statement.

When matching these jeans with a top, which any colour would go with it, I specifically chose orange, as I colour picked from the embroidery on the jeans to compliment the look. 

What do you all think of this look?

Bubbling Face Masks To Remove All Your Skin’s Impurities

The entire world has become obsessed with Korean sheet masks and so have I. They are great to help bring back moisture to your skin, especially now that winter is coming.  They have ingredients such as sodium hyaluronate and glycerin that hydrates and brings that much needed relief to your skin. You can use it anywhere (love using it before or during a flight), anytime (in the morning or evening) and only takes 15 minutes.

What’s interesting is face masks now have evolved and the new rage is bubbling masks. These masks work a bit differently than the regular sheet masks. They both are cotton sheet masks and have a list of great ingredients for your skin. The main difference is that the bubbling mask once you place it on your dry skin starts to foam up in little bubbles. You just have to leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse it off, while normal sheet masks have to rub the remaining liquid into your skin.

The reason it foams up is because it is using ingredients such as licorice root extract and arbutin to help remove impurities from your skin and then you get to wash it all off.

My current favourite is the Sasatinnie Bubble Arbutin Brightening Bubble Black Mask which you can get at any Sasa store.

Remember it is all about finding what is right for your skin!
