Claims

Brighten up millions of your dark and damaged cells. With Pro-Vitamin B3, one of the most powerful ingredients to boost radiance, this Day Cream is clinically proven to help your dark spots fade while providing a powdery, matte finish.

My experience

I bought Pond’s white beauty spotless fairness 25g for pkr. 275 (price may vary) from green valley, mall of Lahore. It has a very nice sturdy packaging, a plastic jar and a pink coloured lid which makes it easy to use and is travel friendly as well.

The cream has a mousse like texture which feels incredibly soft. The cream is pink in colour but casts a pinkish white colour when applied giving your skin a pinkish touch which looks absolutely good and fresh. It has a nice flower fragrance. I fell in love with this product as it mattifies my oily skin and controls the oil for about 3, 4 hours even then only my t zone gets a bit oily whereas rest of my face remains oil free.
It gives an instant fairness which fades after 3, 4 hours. I sometimes use it as an alternative for my base. It quickly dries on the skin so you have to move your hands fast. It provides UV protection too.

Although it does not lightens your skin complexion it definitely brightens your skin tone and gives an instant fairness too which is more than enough in such a low price.

Will I recommend it?

Yes, I will definitely recommend it as Pond’s white beauty spotless fairness has Pro-Vitamin B3 + Multiple UV Protection which gently brightens your skin tone giving it a pinkish white radiance and a matte finish within a very affordable price.

Everybody hurts

There comes a point in life when you look back and see how happy you were and how much doing little things meant to you. All of it feels like a dream as if your every moment passed in just a blink of an eye and you no longer stand where you used to or enjoy things like the way you used to anymore. If only there is a way of getting that spark back in your life.
People. . . they always hurt. If you expect something from people, there is a strong possibility of you getting hurt. You can’t change those people because they mean so much to you so, you bear everything just for the sake of those people. They disappoint you in ways you never thought but still you don’t take them as a threat to your personality because come on you’re still not over their charms so you give them more time. You are on stage 1 now where you think they will change because YOU can’t get over them. You think of their selfish and hurtful behaviour of coping with things you might have done or said so you start blaming yourself for their wrong doings.
Now you’re tired of getting hurt. So, you use your brain and think of where the problem lies. Yes, you’re thinking right but no let’s hang around for a bit more and get a clear idea of things as the people patch up and change for some time and emotionally abuse you. So you think of giving them a second chance. Now you’re on stage 2. Congratulations !
After 2,3 days of their sudden change they’re back to their original personality and now they have evolved ! Yes, before only you used to blame yourself for their wrong doings NOW they too blame you ! It’s totally okay because YOU gave them this courage and right to do all these things to you in the first place. Now, you’re completely broken and hurt. No feelings and enthusiasm left in you.

You do things in your life not to enjoy them but because you HAVE to . You don’t feel happy anymore, nothing makes you happy. To your amazement those people will blame you for behaving like a dead person as YOU are ungrateful. Now, you’re on stage 3.
Not feeling happy, no enthusiasm, feeling hollow and sad all the time this is the new version of you only because you chose to stay with those people in the first place and you gave them the right to emotionally DESTROY you completely.
Now you have two ways from here, either you stay with them and prioritize yourself ONLY, focus on yourself and don’t rely on them in any way or you walk away from their lives for the sake of your mental health and peace. The choice is yours.

Cons of L’oreal Paris Hair Expertise 6 Oil Nourish Oil in Cream Oil Replacement Cream

Contains mineral oils, alcohol and strong artificial fragrances.
Does not make my hair frizz free.
Doesn’t last long since I require quite a lot of product per usage.
So many harmful chemicals.

My review

I bought L’oreal oil replacement cream from green valley, mall of Lahore for pkr. 640 (prices may vary).
Loreal Oil Replacement Cream comes in a beautiful golden shiny tube packaging. It has a flip open lid making it rather travel friendly. It has 6 oils namely Argan Oil, Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive oil, Coconut oil and Camelina oil.

It has a quite strong fragrance and found it really unpleasant as it bothers me. The fragrance stays in my hair for some hours and then it fades away but so does the ‘MAGIC’ it does. L’oreal Oil replacement cream is white in colour and has a very creamy consistency but it appears colourless when applied. It does not feel greasy at all neither it makes your hair sticky once it dries but the frizz doesn’t go away for long.
If you apply it prewash and then post wash too, the results will be better but I would not suggest buying it as an oil replacement as it does not work like one. It helps in detangling the hair and makes them smooth.

Will I recommend it?

No, I will not recommend it even though it is a non greasy and non sticky oil replacement cream it has a lot of harmful chemicals which can do more harm than good in the long run. It does not control my frizz for more than 5-6 hours neither it makes my hair 3× shinier 😊.

Cons

I bought this highlighter for Rs.800 (price may vary) from alfateh centaurus mall, Islamabad. It comes in a huge round slim pan. I love ♥️ the packaging and find it quite travel friendly as well.
Texture is quite smooth, soft and velvety. It feels so nice to even touch it 😍. It does not make you look powdery. It has a subtle glow not glittery at all which gives your face a nice sheen.

It has a nice champagne gold colour which looks great and has a transparent flip top lid. It is super pigmented but does not highlight your pores, which is a big thumbs up from me. It is buildable so you can use it to give you a more natural soft glow or that blinding glow too.

DMGM studio look mega volume mascara | Review

Follow and like us:

If you want to buy a mascara, apply it on one of your eyes and then notice the difference . If it changes the look of your face then you should give it a try.

I bought this DMGM studio look mega volume mascara for PKR 1395 (price may vary) from green valley, mall of Lahore. It is quite affordable. It comes in a nice a black and golden packaging. The tube is long, quite thick and sturdy. I liked the packaging as it is easy to hold and use.

A lengthening, paraben free and affordable mascara that instantly adds volume to lashes (without clumps) to give you a very beautiful wide-eyed effect. It is long lasting and smudge proof but not water proof. It is opthalmologically tested too.
I’m not exaggerating when I say this mascara does wonders for not only my lashes but also my entire face. It totally changes the appearance of my face.

The bristles were soft and bushy evenly coating each and every lash with pitch black pigment giving a very intense look. My lashes tripled in volume and length. The formula was thick but didn’t clump and harden, separately lengthening the lashes making my eyes look bigger. Although it did flake after some time but the quantity was very small.
It is not water proof so you have to be careful after applying it. It did not smudge the whole day and stayed the same all day. Also it is quite easy to take it off.
Let your lashes dry between coats for extra volume. I also suggest that you take out less quantity of the product so you won’t apply a lot of it in one single coat making it look chunky. Apply the mascara on your upper lashes first and from there, you can also brush the mascara onto your lower lashes. The bushy bristles move around the lower lash line perfectly without causing any annoying smudges or chunkiness.
You will surely get nice compliments after using this mascara. This mascara really gives you a false lash effect and you would love using it.

Would I recommend it?

Yes, I would buy it again as it gives mega volume to the lashes and is paraben free. Apart from some flakiness it is a very good mascara in such an affordable price.

Herbella Face glow mist | Review

Follow and like us:

Herbella professional therapy is a Pakistani haircare, skin care and therapeutic scented candles brand. It is an online brand yet so you can get their products online through their facebook page or instagram. They ship all over Pakistan.

I was quite skeptical of trying their products at first as it is a new brand therefore I wasn’t quite sure. But my love of organic products forced me to try their products. So I tried their FACE GLOW MIST. Quite frankly it did not disappoint me.

Pros

Pocket friendly
Organic
Zero side effects
Does not clog pores
Has a nice rosy fragrance
Gives a very natural glow
Does not make skin oily
No artificial shine added
Feels very light and refreshing on skin
It has a nice golden shade
No breakouts
Nice spray nozzle

Water-like consistency
Softens and soothes skin
Paraben free
Keeps skin hydrated
Can be used as a primer
Adds a nice dewy finish to my makeup.

Cons

Still trying to find one 😂

Herbella Face Glow Mist claims to give your skin Vitamin C nourishment and helps unclog pores. It brightens skin as well and can be used as a toner. It is paraben free. It has a rose scent as it is made with rose water.
Herbella face glow mist is quite affordable as one 100 ml bottle is of 650 pkr. The herbella face flow mist comes in a nice clear plastic spray bottle.

The bottle has the information of how to use it. It is quite sturdy and easy to carry around. All the products used in this face glow mist are totally organic so they have no side effect on the skin. It is best for dull, dry and flaky skins.
Herbella face glow mist has a rose scent but the scent dissipates after a while which is a good thing. The product gives your skin a nice healthy glow as it claims. Vitamin C used in this face glow mist leaves your skin looking vibrant. It has a nice golden shade and has a water like consistency. Nothing can go wrong in an all organic genuine beauty product !!

The formulation is so lightweight and hydrating. I was in doubt that it would give my skin a greasy look as I already have an oily skin but it did not !! It is quite comfortable to wear and does not give that sticky feel behind. It brightens your skin also as it prevents tanning of face. Herbella face glow mist works best for all skin types.
You can use it under your foundation as a primer or for like setting your makeup too. It did not make me break out at all. So it’s a good product to buy.

Would I recommend it?

Overall it is a fantastic product and I would definitely buy it again 😊.

Want to stay FOREVER HAPPY in your relationship?

Want to know how to have a happy, satisfied and a life long relationship?

Life is all rainbows and unicorn when you fall in love and like spending time with your loved one. You want to be with that someone every second of the day. You like everything they do or say but you have to work for the relationship once the rainbows and unicorns starts to disappear and you notice your partners flaws and bad behaviour, if you want your relationship to continue happily.

Dr. John Mordecai Gottman is a researcher, clinician, award winning speaker, author and a professor emeritus in psychology who did a vast research work on improving the relationships and prevention of behaviours that can destroy a relationship. He concluded four behaviours that mostly predict a couple’s divorce. These four behaviours slowly eat your relationship, destroying it and eventually pushing the couple for a divorce. You won’t know and slowly these behaviours will put your relationship to an end, a dead end.
Here are the Gottman’s four negative behaviour

Criticism

When in a relationship it’s natural for the couple to dislike some behaviours of the other partner. So to clear things out, they talk about it and get to a conclusion. Arguments happen in a relationship. But a relationship gets toxic and impossible to handle when there is criticism on the personality is involved. If one partner criticizes the personality of the other partner like how do you talk or laugh or walk, the other partner will most likely get hurt and attack back and it will lead to a heated argument. So for a happy relationship avoid criticizing your partners personality.

Contempt

Gottman considered this the worst of the four behaviours. Contempt is the most important predictor of a divorce. Gottman called it as ‘sulphuric acid for love’. One can sense the level of destruction this one behaviour can cause from this statement. The contemptuous partner feels superior and show their contempt by correcting your grammar or pronunciation of a word during a talk, mock the other partner and have a hostile humour. In short a contemptuous person disrespects their partner and people don’t like being disrespected.

Defensiveness

If you attack your partner naturally they will get defensive and retaliate in a way you won’t like either. Most probably they will blame you for the reason of every fight as you pointed out something generating an argument. They will save themselves and paint you as the bad guy.

Stonewalling

Stonewalling is emotional withdrawal from interaction as one partner criticized the other partner and they have built an imaginary wall just for the sake of avoiding them during an argument . They refuse to communicate to the other partner during an argument. They develop this habit just to avoid the argument. They don’t react at all, totally blocking to be a part of that argument.

How to get rid of toxic people

Follow and like us:

“Negative people can only infest you with discouragements when they find you around… Just get lost and get saved!” Israelmore Ayivor

We can find toxic people in our daily lives. Most of us encounter toxic people either at our workplace, in iur daily lives or we have relationship with a toxic person. People who drain our energies, non supportive, emotional abusers and back stabbers are mostly known as toxic people or negative people. They make us feel bad intentionally. Whether they do it because of their insecurities or their need to feel superior, they still end up hurting us in order for them to feel satisfied.

Toxic people are not hard to find as they have certain tendencies by which they are easy to locate. Some of the signs of toxic people are written below;
Their selfishness can be spotted anywhere. They are quite selfish, always putting their needs before others needs.
They are generally insecure. These insecurities can of because of anything or either any person.
They are egoistic and thismakes them to feel that they’re always right as they think they’re far more superior than others so everyone should listen to them.
They often mislead you. Try to twist things to make you depressed or anxious about things important to you.
They never appreciate others, as to toxic people only they are perfect.
Toxic people are not nice to others. Never say nice things to people and never cherish their feelings.
They are attention seekers and can lie to get that attention. They love creating drama and getting all the attention.
They are never straight forward. Talk to a toxic person and they will never give you a straight answer.
They are manipulators. They manipulate people and situations as they like to feel superior so they have the urge to control others. In their mind people should follow them without doubting them.
Everyone deserve supportive, loving and people who they like to spend time with. People with an over flowing negativity make sure to pour that negativity in our lives too. A small chat with a toxic person can make you feel bad about yourself. They have a tendency to lower your morales that you might end up locking your room and think about your useless existence for hours.

There are ways to put a stop to the nonsense of toxic people and live your life your way.

Speak up
First and foremost step is to speak up for yourself. No one has the right to put you down in any way. If you find someone saying something that you’re uncomfortable with just tell them to stop right on their faces before they take advantage of your inability to say no. Convey them that they should not take you for granted. Tell them to go somewhere else and pour out their negativity as you’re not interested in talking to them unless they have something good, reasonable or logical to talk about. Never ever let anyone take advantage of you or your position.

Do not become a victim
Never indulge in any negative conversation with a toxic person. If you tell them about any person chances are they will most likely spread it making you look bad.
They might manipulate you into gossiping so stay away from them and avoid having long conversations with them.

Avoid a toxic person
The best way to avoid a toxic person is by not interacting with them at all and avoiding them at all cost. The less you interact with them, the less they will feed you their negativity and you will live a peaceful and happy life.

A word of advice is to always be with the people who love you and who you love. Surround yourself with positive people and their positive energy will make you happy and lively too. Spread love, happiness and positivity. Enjoy your life.

Know the type of your dream

Follow and like us:

Ever dreamt that you were with the one you love the most at some place which is beyond the definition of beautiful?

Or dreamt of being in an exam hall where you run out of time but you didn’t know the answers to the questions anyway.

A dream where you find yourself at an unimaginable serene place not less than heaven or a dream of being United with your family?

Indeed, we all see dreams while we sleep every now and then and in order to understand ourselves better it is important to know our dreams.
It is safe to say that dreams can be categorized into 3 major types, knowingly:
1) Holy/Spiritual dreams
2) Desires/Wants
3) Thoughts/Memories

The first kind of dreams are rare to occur but holds great meaning in them. Seeing God in a dream or watching oneself in heavenly place can be examples of such category. It is believed that these kinds of dreams are highly positive and true but people can hardly understand the hidden messages they hold.

The second type of dreams, which are the desires and wishes of an individual, are more common to occur as we tend to constantly wish for things and it gets imprinted into our subconscious at some time. Thus, seeing a loved one or partner in a dream is merely depiction of our desires which takes the form of visuals in our sleep. Sometimes desires and thoughts are interchangeable and related which makes it harder to separate desires from thought-form of dreams.

Finally, the third type is the most recurring and common type of dreams. Our brain functions round the clock and is never free of thoughts. Thoughts can be memories or current phenomenon. But they get hold of greater part of our dream formation. A person going through break-up is likely to see glimpses of past memories re-enacted in their dreams. Such type of dreams are also a coping mechanism for stress and depression.

Dreams are naturally occurring phenomenon which can not be explained properly by any individual because it has unique value and experience for each individual just like love has.

Mother’s Day Special

Follow and like us:

Thank you all for taking out some time to read my article. I genuinely appreciate it. I love my mother the most and try to be like her but if I turn out to be a fraction of her I would consider that as my achievement. I, being a mom, love my kid to bits. I would do and can do anything for him. These are the same thoughts and feelings of every mom around the globe. They always put their children ahead of themselves. Some days are just better than the others where you struggle less, but every day is a new struggle for them to make the world best for the small people they have created (that would be our children). Your efforts can never go unnoticed.
Mothers build a whole new generation. Mothers are the building blocks of the society. Whether you are a stay at home mom or a working mom, you all deserve a noble prize for doing such a good work.

None of you applied for this job, you just got one and even though you guys never had any prior experience and any prior knowledge about it, you still are acing it. This job doesn’t need a degree neither you’ll have defined work hours. You have to work round the clock without any pay or incentive. You will have to sacrifice your sleep, your body figure, peace, appearance and sanity at times. You would do anything and everything for your children. In my religion, a mother has the highest place.
We think mothers have some kind of super powers because they make miracles happen. It’s not true but I being a mother know that I would go to any length to make things right for my baby and keep him happy no matter the cost.
I always thought motherhood would be very easy but oh boy was I wrong. Lol. It is without a doubt the toughest job in the world. Can you imagine being pooped on, being vomitted on and still would stay that way to clean the other person before you?? No you won’t. But this is the charm of being a mother, you put your needs and desires second and your baby always first !
There is no criteria of being a great mom. In my view, every mom is a great mom. Sometimes the kids get on our nerves but still we want them to be happy. We love watching them grow, play and explore the world. Motherhood is a unique experience for everyone but never take your mother for granted. Spend quality time with her, make her feel special and do everything for her that she would have done for you. Let’s not forget what our mothers have done for us. Now it’s our duty to make them happy. We cannot and should not limit ourselves to just this one day instead we should give them time more often and make them happy and feel needed. What we’ll do today for our mothers, tomorrow our children will do the same for us.
In the end I would like to say that no doubt motherhood is a quite challenging and demanding job yet we all mothers try our best to give our best. I am so grateful for having the best mom and I try to be the best mom to my baby boy. Wishing you all a happy mother’s day. You all are doing a great job and everybody knows that by now. Cherish these moments and pray for me and my family.
Dedicated to all mothers. I hope you liked the article 😊

He was never into you (Guest post by Ash)

Follow and like us:

Do you ever wonder if he truly belongs to you? What if all his cute little acts are just memories of his past that he tends to renact with you? Would you feel comfortable with his divided love for you or would you rather walk away? The answer depends on how much can you endure!

He was all that love a woman asks for: Paying attention, calling cute names, doing little acts of love and even talking about building a family.
Seems promising, right? But the twist comes when you give in yourself to him emotionally and he senses the threat of you walking away is near to impossible. So he changes. He changes emotionally and totally. You complain, fight, cry and finally get depressed with the whole situation. Eventually you find out from his friends that he is in touch with his ex. And whatever lil’ acts of love from him were already spent well enough with the ex to become memories which he used as his medicine by re-living, to get through the pain of distance from his ex. He never was over her. Infact he was never into you !

Give it a thumbs up if you like the article. Xoxo

Things men are good at

Follow and like us:

Hi everyone. Hope you all are doing fine. Today I’ll write about a very controversial topic so fasten your seat belts. I can write only a single word or a one line and end the topic giving my verdict but I want to elaborate. It’s not a mystery but a known fact but still it doesn’t hurt to talk about it. So here we go.

It is an agreed fact that men have more brains than women they just use it less. However they know how and when to use their brain when it’s something related to them but somehow they use it less in OUR case. I don’t want to start a war here but this is what I have seen. Men in general are innocent creatures with a BIG brain which they rarely use.
Areas where they use their brain occasionally always include women. They can do their hard office work but somehow can’t figure out how to help their wives or girlfriends at home. Pretty innocent creature I told you.
They can carry out their office tasks without anyone standing over their heads to remind them after every half an hour. But again somehow forgets what their wives/girlfriends told them to bring for grocery even if they text their man a thousand times.
They never forget a file or any office diary at home but wow they manage to forget to buy a gift for their wives/girlfriends.
On top of everything they always always remember important business meeting and seminars but they are a pro at forgetting anniversaries and birthdays of their wives and girlfriends.
I mean why are they so good at forgetting our anniversaries and birthdays? Forgetting whatever we tell them?
Women never forget their birthdays. We wait for the birthdays and anniversaries. Most of the times we’re the ones wishing the whole universe on their birthdays and anniversaries but the men in our life still forget ours. Yeah it hurts I know. But they’re busy at work and it’s difficult to remember things you know we should be more understanding. Well we have a lot on our plate too still we remember things about our loved ones. It’s just a matter of priorities.

I’m not saying all men do this but most of them does. And as a result most of the women go through this. It’s easy to remember the dates if you can’t do it with your brain. Let me help you. Put a reminder, write it down and pin it on your refrigerator. Put the dates as a wall paper on your laptops as men spend a lot of their time on laptop working. Do whatever it makes it easy to remember.
Remembering important things about your partner is just a gesture but a gesture that matters a lot to your partner. She will cherish it. She will love you even more knowing that you care for her and remember the things that make her happy. Eventually less bickering and less fights. As they say “happy wife, happy life”.
I guess it’s enough ranting for one day. Even though I did not plan to rant this much but you know sometimes you get triggered by some things you see around you. I hope none of you took it to your heart.

Salaam Ramadan !

Follow and like us:

Ramadan is a holy and sacred month for Muslims. It is one of the five pillars of Islam. There are some things I would like to share about ramadan with all of you.

In this month the Muslims feel the pain and hardships of poor people.
Ramadan comes once every year. Ramadan comes every year at different dates because of the lunar calendar. As the dates change so does the length of the fast. A fast starts after the fajar azaan, before sunrise and ends at maghrib azaan, after the sun sets. In ramadan Muslims all over the world abstain from eating, drinking, immoral behaviour, bad deeds and having sexual relations during their fast.
Waking up before sunrise to eat something which would make you full enough to spend the whole fast with that food is called sehri. Some people don’t do sehri at all and spend the whole fast on their dinner and some get up early and eat. But all have to close their fast before hearing the fajar azan with a sehri prayer.
Muslims don’t eat anything at all during their fast neither they drink anything not even water. Neither they use foul language or get angry as it against to do such in ramadan.
As Islam has a flexibility for children, women, older people and ill people so it happens in ramadan as well. Fasting is not obligatory to the children who haven’t reached adolescence yet. The same goes for pregnant women and ill people. Women in their time of the month are also exempted from fasting for only those days. No one forces you to fast although it is farz in Islam to fast once you reach puberty but no one does and can force the other to fast as forcing the religion is not permissible in Islam. But if the children want to fast, the adults let them fast for half day and call it a mock half day fast.
Eating, drinking or having sexual relation during your fast invalidates it.

Muslims open their fast on maghrib azaan, it’s called iftar, with an iftar prayer and start with a date usually or they can open with anything sweet. Then they can eat anything they want to till sehri again.

After iftar they have an additional prayer called tarawih. The whole Quran is being recited in tarawih within a month. Gents offer tarawih at mosque in congregation and the ladies can do it either at mosques or at their homes.
At then end of ramadan Muslims are rewarded in the form of eid for fasting for one month and staying away from all the bad deeds.
I’ll discuss eid in some other article. I hope you find this article informative.

‘Bandersnatch’ Review

Follow and like us:

This is my review of this movie and it can be different from others.
Bandersnatch was released on Dec 28, 2018 on Netflix. It’s an interactive movie by Black Mirror.

It makes you feel like as if you’re the director of the movie but you’re not. You’re only given two choices and you have to choose from them. If you make the right choice, according to the author, you’ll move to the next level. On making a wrong choice the movie will start from the part where you made the wrong choice, just like a game.
You can somewhat control the character named Stefan, who in the movie is a game programmer of making such choosing the options type games.
The interesting thing I found in the movie was that the other character always gave Stefan the choice of options but the character emphasized on a certain action more so Stefan would select that choice and the movie will move forward. If he does the opposite, the movie ends abruptly and you have to start over again from the wrongly opted option part.
Bandersnatch gave me a feeling of being stuck in a time dimension loop and you have to repeat the whole procedure in order to make things right, they way they’re programmed in the movie. This was the part I did not like at all. They must have stories for all the options other than abrupt endings. So every viewer will have a different ending. So Bandersnatch did not offer much choices.
Another interesting part was of Colin who somehow remembered that he saw Stefan somewhere. You have to be really attentive to know the codes the characters give in their dialogues.
First I selected to take the tuckersoft jobs and it ended the movie right there. Not good bandersnatch not good.
Then I chose to pour tea on the computer as I did not like shouting on the dad but guess what? This is what they wanted. My movie again ended.
Then everything was going fine the next time and I did even shouted at dad, did not want to though, but still I destroyed the computer. This time I was so annoyed and my brain was about to give up but I really wanted to end the movie so I gave it another last try.
I reached dead ends three times. Almost gave up and then followed the codes completely believing that I’m not the one in control and got to the end. Voila!
Although I did not take the LSD I somehow did. Weird but I so wanted to end the movie and made Stefan jump. Lol. I killed him. Even when he jumped I thought they might make me do it all again but gladly they did not.
I believe from I have heard there are five endings to the movie. No matter what you chose, the movie is quite exhausting. The starting over again part annoyed me.
I would not recommend it to any mom though. But if you have time and you want to play a weird game then go for it.

Do not fear childbirth, there is no gas and air for MOTHERHOOD

Follow and like us:

Trust me when I say this because I had the hardest childbirth one can think of. The doctors tried everything on ne and then at the end induced me. But even my childbirth has no comparison to motherhood. I can compare motherhood to a sea of fire !!! Yes and you have to reach the other end daily. Hahaha.
Let me introduce you to my 22 months old baby, Muhammad.

Can you see the spark in his eyes? Yes me too. That’s the spark of mischievousness. He causes a tornado wherever he goes and then he gets the attention he wants. My baby Muhammad is always on the run and he wants “nom nom” all the time. He wanders in the whole house aimlessly then point out in one direction to tell me that he wants that thing. Now the tricky part is “that thing” is not visible to us normal people but only to my baby Muhammad. He sees it and he wants it and it would be better for you to find it quick otherwise there will be a tantrum tornado with lots and lots of tears and hitting with his baby hands. So I keep showing him stuff and he keeps saying no to everything I show. After some 15 minutes he selects something and take it to the bed and play with it for some seconds then throw it away. Now he wants some other invisible thing.
As he is a super active baby he is always willing to play. But he wants me to play with him as well. . . He is no 1 football fan. I cannot even think of sitting down in the middle and catch my breath. Nope not a chance. As long as he doesn’t get exhausted we have to play like a pro. Lol.
He doesn’t let us watch tv too. Firstly he wants the remote in his hand and then he watches bo bo baby on netflix (boss baby). So basically he netflix’s and chill. If we don’t do what he says, he fakes cry and if we still don’t do it, he cries in real. Yes so we have to do everything he says.
He has a chair and he takes his favourite chair (at the moment) everywhere. I mean everywhere. Wherever he goes, he runs to find his chair and then drag it with him, to the kitchen, to the washroom, to our lawn, even to our car. If I tell him not to drag it everywhere he screams (again his tantrum) but then I back off. You know he’s the law in our house. You just can’t deny anything he says otherwise you will get your ears bleed from his screams and a very long cry. This little baby even accompanies me to the toilet !! And wants me to hold him there. Lol. In a split second he brings his favourite chair and sits with me and chat. I try to make him leave the bathroom but he fakes cry. Hahaha
We cannot point our finger to him because he hates it. Ever since he started sitting he does not let us point finger at him. He fights back and slaps our fingers. Now he points his finger back at us and I don’t know what he says but he gets angry and keep on talking till we stay quiet and listens to him. Me and my husband does not know who told him that pointing finger is bad but I guess the old fellow in him knows somehow. Even if he’s standing a mile away and you point finger at him he will come running to u just to slap your finger and say something in his baby language like do not point this finger at me ok !!!
Hiding our things is his favourite time pass. We search for our things all day and we would end giving up. One day we had to go out on a dinner with my husband’s colleagues and we were unable to find our car keys. We searched for it for one hour then our servant brought it to us from the laundry room because our son hid it in the there. I mean how can he take the key safely all the way from our room to the laundry room. This little man is very clever. He knows how to get things out of us one way or the other and we HAVE to do what he says.
There is no way of saying NO to him because he doesn’t want to hear no. If I don’t listen to him he’ll make me listen to him. He is a difficult clever but cutest baby.
I can and I will do anything for him. After all of the nonsense he puts me through, his one smile is enough to make me get back from the edge and love him like crazy and he knows it. I know he knows it that’s why he keeps me running on my toes all the time.
This is just a glimpse of my baby Muhammad and my hectic day with him but at the end of the day I’m still smiling as I put him in his bed and see his cute face I forget everything and gather my energy back for another day with baby Muhammad.
The post got longer than I expected that’s why I cut it short. I hope you like it

A thing of beauty is not joy for everyone !

Follow and like us:

Don’t you love a new baby and feel like holding him? No doubt babies are a beautiful blessing from God. Some people get way more excited like over the moon for having one and think their life got perfect after the new addition to the family. Then there are women who get deeply depressed after having a baby which makes then unable to bond with their new baby. Its not something we WANT to feel but some of us feel it anyway.
I had my first baby 22 months ago through a normal delivery and I thought after having him I would be the happiest, my life would be perfect. I would love my baby more than anything else. My baby boy was born at 5pm . I was so happy to see him for the first time. I touched him and kissed him. I loved looking at my little bundle of joy. But things took a drastic turn for me the next day when I took him home with me.

He was a very difficult baby to start. He did not sleep at night and even in the day time our whisper was enough to wake him up. I could not sleep at all. Every time I try to sleep his cries would wake me up. On the other hand I was not willing to let anyone do his work. I would check his diaper a million times. Even if he was asleep at times I could not make myself sleep. I would never leave my house without him pooping. If he poops again outside I would panic so much that people around me got anxiety themselves.
I was stressed beyond limits. I was seriously thinking of giving him to someone who would take care of him and needed a baby. In my mind I was sure that “this baby has made my life difficult and he is the reason of my sadness and unable to enjoy any occasion or anything at all”.

Most of the time I was sad and crying. My baby was not bonding with me neither I was feeling attached to my baby like a mother should. He would cry his lungs out after my touch and I was not able to calm him down. My mom or my husband helped me but still I was not enjoying MOTHERHOOD. It still hurts me to think of my reaction towards my baby after his cries. Breastfeeding him was a nightmare for me. I was feeling bound. I was taking care of my baby as if it was part of my job, just do the task without any feeling. I totally neglected my appearance.
I shared my feelings with my mom but she told me to keep it together and helped me with everything. She would make me meet other moms and they shared their motherhood experiences saying that it’s normal. My mom counselled me about motherhood and I shared everything with her. Then my husband helped me deal with these issues.
I got out of this phase after 9 months of my baby’s birth and started enjoying my life with my baby. My mom and my husband helped me get out of that phase. I did not know why I was feeling like this and what is this disorder. Most of the new mothers don’t know it either. I thought I should educate them from my personal experience so they could relate to it and get help.
After some time I got to know about POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION and I was glad to know that I got out of it with the help of my loved ones. So yes postpartum depression is real and it eats the mind of the new mother.
If any of you out there is going through this phase or know someone who is, please help her out because she needs help.
Help her out with her baby, encourage her to talk about her feelings. Take her out more often. Support her. Always always take her to a counsellor if things don’t get better otherwise her situation might get worse.
I hope you find this article helpful.

Mothers, the unpaid labours

Follow and like us:

Labours day is a holiday when we honour the working men and women around the world for their services. Every working person thinks of it as a day off, to relax and to enjoy, gather their energy. But there are some labours which work 24/7 even on a labours day and they don’t even get paid for it in cash. No doubt they get paid in the form of unconditional love but no money for the hard work they do neither they ever demand anything in return. Yes, all of you must have guessed by now. I am talking about a MOTHER. A strong women who works round the clock and without any break. A mother doesn’t even get paid for the services she provides. They have the most toughest job in the world. She sacrifices her sleep, peace and time, everything for her children. She is always on duty working and is always available for her children.
On labour day when everyone waits for the holiday and enjoys it, there are mothers still working and giving time to their children. On this labours day we all should be grateful of such mothers who are raising a whole new generation and helping us build a better tomorrow without demanding anything in return preforming the biggest duty.
On this labours day I want to thank all of the mothers for the hard labour you do. I salute all the mothers on this labours day for their unpaid services, their sacrifices and their efforts. Happy labours day ! Xoxo

Best and affordable brow pomade. Zhoosh brow pomade | Review

Follow and like us:

Zhoosh is a first Pakistani premium mink eyelash brand. They make brow pomades too. It doesn’t have any on ground outlet so you have to order their products online. Their delivery service is fast.

I ordered zhoosh brow pomade from their website @zhooshmeup in a discount bundle deal of pkr 2050. They delivered the products in a nice shiny golden packet.

The bundle included a zhoosh brow pomade, zhoosh dual ended eyebrow brush which has a spoolie brush at one end and an angled eyebrow brush at the other end and a zhoosh tweezer. Their brow pomades are available in 5 shades. Butterscotch, mocha, fudge, dark chocolate and cinnamon. The shade range is limited though but these are the most suitable colours for Pakistani skin tones. I ordered the mocha coloured brow pomade.

It has a rich and creamy fat free formula which is highly pigmented. It glides on smoothly. It depends on you whether you want to give a natural look to your brows or a dramatic look, it works both way. It has a buildable coverage.

It is water proof and smudge proof. It doesn’t budge at all.

I have the most oily skin and it works best for me. It works for all skin types. I use it daily and even the next morning it was still there and intact. So yes you would totally want to have it and trade it for your Anastasia Beverly hills dip brow pomade. It gives such a natural look to your eyebrows that you don’t need any eyebrow gel on your brows to set them.

Same thing just less pricey and the results are awesome. I bought this pomade like six months ago and it still is in use. So yes a little goes a long way.

However the zhoosh brush doesn’t do justice to the pomade. It isn’t as stiff as the sigma angled brushes are. So yes if you use some other brush the product will come out even better.

Will I buy it again?

Yes I’m waiting for this pomade bottle to end so I can get my hands on a new one may be a shade darker. Apart from its brush not being stiff to apply the pomade more sharply there is no cons in this pomade. It’s one of the best Pakistani brands and I am a fan of this brand already.

World’s best oil control product, The Body Shop Tea Tree mattifying lotion

Follow and like us:

I have a very oily skin and by very I mean for my T zone, sky is the limit. Lol. I try various oil and shine controlling products but this “The Body shop’s Tea Tree mattifying lotion” is by far the best and the only product which makes my skin shine proof and keeps it oil free for as long as I stay awake and literally the next day till I wash my face. So no more greasy oil situation on my face.
I bought if from The Body Shop outlet for $9 because they had a sale going on otherwise it was of $15. A little bit pricey for such a small bottle but it was worth it. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly and it doesn’t leak from the lid as well.

The scent of this lotion is quite strong as it has a tea tree fragrance when you first put it on your face but it goes away after some seconds. The consistency of the lotion is very light weight and is transparent when applied and gives a cool sensation on application, your skin feels so smooth after applying it.

This product does what it claims, reduces oil and prevents shine. Neither it clog the pores. This lotion really mattifies the skin for a very long time but also keep it moisturized at the same time. It controls oil and shine for a long time and can be used as a makeup base. Foundation glides on it smoothly.

It claims that it clears acne and prevents blemishes too but according to my experience it did not prevent my blemishes and I can’t say anything about acne as I have an acne free skin already. It cleared my complexion though and made my skin look fresh.
$15 would be a little pricey for me as it comes in a very small bottle of 50ml but I got lucky and got it at $9😄 but the benefits are worth every penny.
The down part for me is that it dries down my under eye area so much that it irritated me and I apply a different moisturizer on it. But over all it controls my oil and shine and keeps them at bay.
The amazing part is I applied it at around 5pm and when I woke up the next day I still did not have any oil or shine on my face. I was completely astonished by this. I totally love it.

Would I recommend it?

Yes, I would recommend it but for the eye area part which gets dry you have to put some other moisturizer. Even if you put a moisturizer over it, it won’t make your skin oily. This is the only con I found in this lotion that it dried my under eye area but it is the only product that could control my oil and shine.

Genuine simple ways to lose weight

Follow and like us:

Weight loss is a very big problem for us ladies these days specially mommies and so many websites on the internet suggest such harmful methods and ways to lose weight that I had to come up with this topic. Diet can never let you keep your weight off for a very long time so dieting is not the answer to weight loss problem.
There is always healthy ways of doing certain things and weight loss is one of them. I will talk about genuine ways to lose weight efficiently and maintain it for like forever ! So let’s get started and share my knowledge with you guys.

Add flaxseeds in your diet

Flaxseeds are proven to speed up the weight loss. They contain fibre which keeps you feeling full.

Drink more water

Water keeps your hydrated and full for a very long time. It actually helps you lose weight by burning the calories for an hour after you drink water. Drinking water before and between meals also reduce your calorie intake. But NEVER drink water after you are done with your meal for at least half an hour.

Eat an apple everyday

As we know “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. There must be some truth to this fact. Apple contains a special fibre called pectin that slows down digestions and keeps you full for a very long time. Hence, curbing your food cravings.

Add more proteins to your diet

Any food with high protein keeps you full for longer periods of time thus reducing your appetite. A protein diet boosts your metabolism and helps in burning more calories. Almonds, lean meat, poultry, cheese, yogurt, dairy, fish, beans, eggs and soy products have a high quantity of protein.

Take more vitamin D

Vitamin D aids in weight loss and decrease body fat. According to some researches, people with a high BMI have low level of vitamin D in their body. Mushrooms, salmons, oysters, cod liver oil, egg yolks are rich in vitamin D. You can also take vitamin D supplements.

Reduce your food intake of carbohydrated foods

After you reduce your carb intake, your body will gradually shed the water weight first and then it will start burning the calories and fats.
Don’t drink carbohydrated drinks, consume less bread, eat less potatoes, drink coconut or almond milk.

Say NO to processed food

Processed foods lack vitamins, proteins, fibres. They have a high sugar, sodium and fat content and increase your cholesterol level. All frozen, canned, baked and dried foods are processed foods. Cheese, cereals, microwave meals, ready meals, cakes, biscuits, and savoury snacks.

Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet

Fruits and vegetables are a healthy source of food. They keep you fresh and control your cholesterol too. They are rich in nutrients, vitamins, fibres and water. Fruits and vegetables are considered as good for weight loss. People who eat fruits and vegetables daily are comparatively healthier.

Add green tea in your daily regimen

Flavonoids in green helps speed up your metabolism and burn fat. It also helps in losing belly fat which is what people want most of the time. So enjoy the benefits of green tea by daily drinking it.
Avoid sugar
Sugar is as addicted is cocaine. It causes excessive weight gain and leads to other diseases as well. Sugar in every form is dangerous.

Use coconut oil more

Coconut oil speeds up your metabolism and burns your calories thus aiding in weight loss.

Take probiotics

Probiotics have lactobacillus and studies have shown that strains of lactobacillus burn belly fat and helps to lose weight. Yogurt is a probiotic which is good for burning belly fat.

Eat more fibres

Fibres keeps you full for a longer period of time, lowers your cholesterol and normalizes your blood sugar levels. Some fibre rich foods are pumpkins, chickpeas and apples.

Take whey protein supplement

Whey protein supplement reduces your appetite and burns fat causing you to lose weight.

Do cardio

Cardio exercises work very well for weight loss. You can start with a little walk first and then move to other exercises.

Watch less Television

Spend your time on televisions less because that’s how we end up eating more

Make a schedule

Make a daily routine schedule and follow it. Sleep early as eating late at night makes you gain weight more.

Eat healthy

One of the key factor of gaining weight is eating junks, which is not a healthy form of food. Eat vegetables, fruit, nuts etc.

Which fashion trends we Welcomed and which fashion trends we said Goodbye to in 2019?

Follow and like us:

Trends are usually somethings which are moving in certain directions and people follow it. Fashion and makeup trends always change. These fashion and makeup trends are set by people like us.
For those who follow trends and like staying up to date, here are some fashion and makeup trends fashion industry welcomed and said goodbyes in 2019.

Lipsticks

This is a year to welcome bold lipsticks again. So red is again the IT lipstick with all the other bold shades in the year 2019. But as classy as red is, it can never go out of style. Nude lips were quite trendy in the year 2018. All the celebrities and models were into nudes. But in 2019 nude lips are not trendy anymore. So bye nude lips !

Brows

2018 was a year of weird trends so natural looking down brows were out of style. This year ladies are again welcoming down brows (Thank God for that). Brushed up and bushy brows are so last year. Whereas brushed up brows were much trendy in 2018, I was never a fan of them. Bye bushy brows !

Eyeliners

Colourful bright eyeliners are welcomed this year like bright pink , bright yellow and bright blue eyeliners are what we see mostly on runways these days. So bye black eyeliner (but honestly I just can’t say goodbye to black and brown eyeliners).

Monochromatic looks

It is the most welcomed trend in 2019. You just use same colour all over your face for makeup like on your eyelids, lips and cheeks. So bye bye to hectic long layering of makeups.

Glossy Makeup

I think glossy makeup will stay trendy for a long time as everyone likes a glowing fresh looking skin. So glossy makeup is what everyone welcomes with open arms even in 2019. Nobody wants a full matte face. So bye to full matte face makeup.

Hair

Last year caramel shades hair colour, blonde and burgundy coloured hair were in, this year people are welcoming grey hair more. Whether you want to dye your hair grey or embrace your natural grey hair is totally upto you but grey is welcomed in 2019. So bye to blonde, caramel and burgundy hair.

Lashes

Natural lash lift is the latest welcomed trend in 2019. It looks more natural and soft. So bye to falsies.

Nails

This is the trend which again gave me some relief. This year almond shaped nails are again in. Bye to square shaped nails !

Sleeves

Bell shaped sleeves are out this year and puffed sleeves are what people preferring in 2019. I personally don’t like puffed sleeves.

Glasses

Say welcome to oval shaped glasses and bye to square shaped glasses. That’s a plus point for me as oval shaped glasses suit more on people with a small face.

Tops

So after getting their shoulders cold in 2018, people warmly welcomed again the normal tops and waved a heartily goodbye to off the shoulders tops.

Bottoms

So to spice things up fashion gurus added utility dresses this year as a trend. You’ll feel a lot more comfortable in a jumpsuit and cargo pants. So bye to denims and tights.

Footwear

Sneakers and sporty sandals are trending this year whereas wave a goodbye bye to thigh high boots.

Prints

Animal prints are in this year. Anything would be considered trendy if it has an animal print on it. People welcomed snake prints and leopard prints happily and said their goodbyes to floral prints.

Last but not the least, in my view anything is trendy as long as you feel comfortable in it and you enjoy and feel beautiful wearing it.

ONE Minute hasty makeup

Follow and like us:

I don’t like it when people telling quick makeup techniques end up suggesting a dozen products to use including a face primer and eye primer. No, we don’t have that much time when we have a baby to look after to, reach office on time or a college or university to attend early in the morning.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a student, stay at home mom or a working mom, some days you just don’t have enough time to put a lot of makeup on to look presentable. As a stay at home mom, I have tried a lot of shortcuts to carry on with my MOM LIFE and looking presentable at the same time. Moms have every right to look good everyday even when the kids are at their worst. Lol. After many trial and error methods I have finally DISCOVERED a ONE MINUTE hasty makeup method which would make us (All the moms and students) look good in no time. Yes it is as simple and quick as it can be. You just need to choose the products you really need and you’re good to go.

Foundation or bb cream

Start with applying foundation or bb cream. When I have to do a one minute hasty makeup i opt for bb creams usually. These days I use M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 in shade 21. Its quick and easy to apply on. All you need is your fingers instead of using a beauty blender or a brush. It is light weight, moisturize your skin and protect your skin from the sun, if you go out in the day time. It minimizes pores, hides redness and imperfections giving a medium coverage lasting all day (if you don’t touch it).

Cheek, lip and eye shadow tint

Yes, all in one. Use a cheek and lip tint and you can use it as your eyeshadow too. You just have to look for a natural shade, apply a little on your cheeks, lips and eye lids, dab dab dab and you would look close to perfect.

I use Tarte exposed cheek stain for my cheeks, lips and eyelids as well. It lasts all days, giving a glowy, young, natural and fresh look. It is light weight but dries down nicely leaving your skin nourished and full of colour.

Mascara

Follow this step only if you want to. Most of the time I skip this step when I’m not going out. But adding this step would brighten your eyes more. I use benefit BAD gal lash mascara as it gives volume to your lashes. It does not run, smudge or flake.

. . . And we’re done with our one minute hasty makeup. You can do this makeup for your office, college, university, going out or just staying at home with your family. Looking good is not that difficult after all. I would love to know your hasty makeup routines. Xoxo
