As I’m sure everyone knows, Baaghi depicts the story of Qandeel Baloch (Fouzia Azeem), a young fun-loving girl who had the world resting on her shoulders. She left her home and family to make a living and escape the village life she didn’t agree with. And If I’m honest, I believe we all have a little bit of Qandeel within us – a rebel with a cause.
Numerous Bollywood A-listers attended the eleventh installment of the Elle Beauty Awards held on Wednesday night. The stars included Malaika Arora, Diana Penty, Athiya Shetty, Richa Chadda, Kavya Trehan, Nidhhi Agerwal, Bani J and more.
Although many graced the event with their presence, only some caught my eye on the star-studded red carpet.
Years of development and months of teasing created many eager beavers which had fans super excited for the Work singer’s make-up line launch.
The Game of Thrones (GoT) craze is in full swing as the latest season draws to an end. We’re sure every single fan of the TV epic has been watching each and every episode with great concentration but the question is how closely have they been observing the fantasy show?
The Indian film fraternity seem to be on their A-game at the ongoing Lakmé Fashion Week Winter Festival 2017. The highly-awaited fashion fiesta is ruling the headlines with its astonishing modern fashion exhibition.
Saba Qamar has been making headlines recently and that too, for all the right reasons. First it was her roaring performance in the super-hit Bollywood movie Hindi Medium and then, the acting powerhouse starred as the female lead in the biopic Baaghi. Now, she has gotten us all in awe with her latest shoot with Vogue India.

I’m sure most of you would agree that in this day and age, people are more than just obsessed with being perfect. And it’s mostly focused on looking perfect. Not even a single strand of hair should be out of place, the eyebrows need to be on fleek and the skin… flawless, of course. This idea that we have all infused in our mind is a reflection of society and now, a reflection of us. More often than not, when we speak of beauty, we automatically think of physical appearance. But what about inner beauty?
“The world is a book and those who have not travelled have only read one page.” – St Augustine
I got the travel bug during university when I was on my year abroad on an exchange programme. I had some funds to spare so I decided to explore the world. Saving it for the ‘future’ probably would have been the smart thing to do but that would not have satisfied the adventurous me. Continue reading
Recently, I have been more inclined to use natural products on my face and body. My skin has been giving me a hard time lately and I thought it’s high time I did something about it. I have very oily, acne-prone skin.
I finally got my hands on this foundation after hearing so many make-up “Gurus” raving about it! It has easily become my holy grail foundation just after 2-3 weeks of use.
I know I haven’t put up a blog post in about two weeks now but I have been REALLY busy lately so I thought I’d just update everyone as to what I’ve been up to. I know this post may not be of interest to many of you but here goes anyway:
No this is not a mistake. And no I am not secretly a man. If you thought any of those things then you obviously haven’t been keeping up with the new beauty bloggers/vloggers trend. Every other Youtuber raves about this product being amazing as a primer.
Hello my lovelies!
This review is actually in collaboration with Sprinkle of Surprise! As she is based in America and I am based here in England, I thought it would be fun to recommend a product to each other from our respective countries. She recommended me an American branded product and I recommended her a British one – both drugstore products. Check out Sprinkle of Surprise’s review to find out which product I recommended! And follow her on Instagram to see what she’s up to.
Everyone always asks me how I use to travel so frequently, that too as a student. It really isn’t that expensive.. you just need to find the right websites to make the most of your budget.
So here are my absolute favourite websites which can help you find the best ways to enjoy your holiday even if you are on a lower budget:
I had been trying out some Arbonne skincare products the past month and thought I would do a review on them.
Many of you may not know about Arbonne but their products are botanically based and earth friendly; I’m all for that! It is an online-based company so everything is available on their website.
Just a disclaimer, I am not being paid to do this – these are completely, 100% my honest thoughts:
I went to a friend’s birthday party a week or two ago at the Landmark Hotel for afternoon tea and I decided to wear this plain, beige jumpsuit but put it with lace up heels and a brighter coat to glam it up! I hardly ever wear colour so I was a bit apprehensive about wearing the coat but I think I made it work?!
I put my own twist on a classic ‘pin up’ make up look by smoking out the winged liner and going for a deeper red.
Here’s how I created it:
If you live in England you know that we don’t have seasons here. It’s aaaalways so cold and rainy! That’s why we’re mostly all wrapped up in comfy jumpers.
I kept it semi-casual for my birthday outfit this year. If you want to get the look then keep on reading!
My birthday was yesterday (8th January) and I can’t believe I’ve just turned 23! I don’t know where all the years have gone but honestly, they’re flying by and I wish I could stop time!

How is it Christmas already?! This year has gone by so quickly, TOO quickly even. But then again, I guess we all say this every year don’t we?
I thought it was about time I would post about Christmas gift ideas to give you some inspiration! Click on the pictures to be directed to the website:
I discovered this brand when I was living in Valencia as it is better known there than it is here in London. I have to say that it immediately became one of my favourite as it’s so reasonable for the quality.
I always use to wonder what all these different coloured concealers were used for and whether they actually worked. I’m sure there are some of you out there who still have these questions in their minds. Well, hopefully this post can help with that. I’m going to give a quick run down on the purpose of each colour:
There are a few things that NEED to be in my travel handbag when flying out. I have a habit of packing my bag the night before, I mostly keep chucking things in my bag here and there but I check it one last time right before I go to sleep. Here are my must-haves:
A couple of months ago I got into the whole ‘being healthy’ thing which meant I had to change my diet. I’m not the kind of person to always be snacking and I don’t have a sweet tooth either so my diet wasn’t awful but I still wanted to lose a little bit of weight.
Eid Mubarak Everyone!
This is what I wore on my face and I thought I would share the details.
The best thing about having friends abroad is that they know their own city and therefore are able to show you places you wouldn’t usually think of (being a tourist). Here are a few things I think everyone needs to see and do when in Paris:
I have worn this foundation I think.. maybe twice and I wanted to share my first impression with everyone!
As most of you probably know, I have just graduated and four years have literally flown by! However, I wish I had known a couple of things before going to uni – it would have made things so much easier! So today, I am going to try and make YOUR uni experience a little bit easier by giving you a few pointers:
For a day like this, I wanted my make-up to last really long and not melt off my face! Even though the weather in England isn’t really that hot, I knew I’d be running around in my robe all day and taking pictures, so I wanted it to be perfect.
I am officially a Law Graduate!
This day was by far one of the best days of my life. It was just amazing and I can’t explain the roller coaster of emotions I was feeling. To put it into one word; I was OVERWHELMED.
I’ve finished my law degree in June but my Graduation Ceremony is in a couple of days. I am so excited about it – I haven’t even been able to sleep properly the last few nights!
I am an extremely organised person and I like to have everything right especially before going abroad. Here’s a few things I like to keep in mind:
I get asked about my hair everywhere I go – how is it so thick? so shiny? etc. etc. and there are a couple of answers to all these questions:
I always go for marcaras with anything but plastic brushes as I just don’t like how they feel on my eyes/eyelashes. I find the rubber or fibre brushes to be much more gentle – this mascara has a rubber wand.
I like to keep to myself when I’m upset and don’t usually talk to anyone. Some may think that that may make things worse for them and that’s fine. I, however, find that because I’m down I don’t really interact with other people in the best way and can become pretty snappy so instead of ending up upsetting others around me I think it’s better to keep to myself.
I’ve found that the best way to cheer myself up is by relaxing. Now, this could mean many things so here’s my take on ‘relaxing’:
