~Review:FoodPanda Pakistan Home Delivery Food Service~

Recently home delivery food services are trending a lot.People sometimes find it comforting ordering their favorite foods online and eating it in the warmth and coziness of their own home.Some people are too lazy to go out and eat whereas some only love to go out and eat and hate home deliveries.PS:No thats not me who hates home deliveries Its my hubby !Foodpanda has been the talk of town lately.Specially when you think of considering the options that are available Foodpanda jumps into your mind.
Luckily I was asked by Foodpanda Pakistan to order something from them & review it.Ofcourse my review would be even handed and impartial.
I was waiting for the perfect day to order my lunch.It was a rainy day in Islamabad & I thought it best to browse through the different options available for lunch.As it was my first time with ordering at Foodpanda I had to register with them that hardly took a minute or two as I had to give my email and contact no.Me & my hubby love Mediterranean/Middle eastern food.So I checked out random restaurants that were offering sheesha towk & shawarma stuff with hummus and falafel etc.
3 of the open restaurants were serving at that time.I chose Al Inaab Lebanese Cuisine.I picked Deal 3 out of all the deals and placed my order on the Foodpanda app on my Iphone.




 

& at once and sms was delivered


I was very impressed by how this app worked.Within minutes and without any telephonic conversation my order was placed and was being prepared.
I waited for an hour but the order didn't arrive.But after 20 more minutes it arrived considering it was a rainy day & the Foodpanda rider must have had some difficulty on the way.Here is the order
All the food packed with care

Here's the food

This was not the first time I ate bad Lebanese Food.The shawarma wasn't upto the mark along with the sheesh towk and the grilled wings.Only the fries,hummus and baba ganoosh were okay.The well known salad Fatoosh was no where near original.Overall I had very bad experience with the food.Would I have ordered through restaurants that I have eaten at or known for good food my experience would have been better.
Thats why its a suggestion to  Foodpanda to only keep & add those restaurants on its panel who make quality food.Though its one of the best options to consider when you are really hungry & don't want to eat homely food.Just reach out for your phone open your foodpanda app and explore the various options.Order,sit back & wait for the door bell.
You can also order through Foodpanda website

Next time I ll definitely not order this restaurant again.Overall Foodpanda is a wonderful way to order something when you are too tired or lazy to go out or when you have some friends at home and you want to order a Pizza in a good deal.
Keep it up Foodpanda.

~Got Acrylic Nails for Wedding Season & Couple of Essie NOTDs:Big Spender,Mink Muffs & Tiny Wine-ey~

This has been a post I have wanted to do for a long time.
I got my first acrylic nails in Dec 2014,just before the wedding season started.
My own nails have been chipping off lately maybe due to certain deficiencies.Actually what happened was one nail grew up & the other day another one chipped off.So I wanted some decent looking nails for the season.Thats when I thought about getting acrylics.
Then one day I headed to this saloon famous for nails.It took me 2 hours to get acrylics for both my hands.There are different type of nails:
One is the gel ones
Secondly acrylics powder and liquid ones.
One kind of acrylic come off after a week ,the other kind stay longer for 2-3 months depending on the use.I got the ones that stay longer as it was my first experience and I really wanted to enjoy them.



Can you see the acrylic nails they start from half way of the actual nail
On the empty half a powder is filled and in end a top coat put on that is heated and hardened under a UV Machine.
And after an Essie nail color the result was better than expected.

Big Spender By Essie

After 1 month I went back to get the refills done i.e the area where the nail grows is filled with some more powder and rest of the nail is buffed and cleaned.
I returned with this Essie shade on my nails


Its a pretty shade called Mink Muffs
 A couple of days ago my sister in law went to the saloon for her refills.She found this red so captivating that she bought it.
Isnt it really gorgeous.

Its called Tiny Wine-ey

I still have to go go for one more refill session.If I get too tired I guess I ll have them removed.I really like the option of getting good nails at any time now.I think if you are too tired taking care of your real nails and still it doesnt work,go for acrylics.Paint them everyday to your heart's content & then when you are tired get them removed.
I think these are best for brides to be.They should get acrylic nails.At least they wouldn't have to worry for 2-3 months.
Have any of you experienced acrylic or gel nails.
How was your experience.
Would love to know.
Thanks a lot for stopping by.

~Review:The Body Shop Red Musk Eau de Perfume~

The valentine's Day is just around the corner so isn't it the best time to review this scandalous perfume!Yes its none other than the Red Musk Eau de Perfume by The Body Shop.
This was recently launched in Pakistan & luckily I was there at its launch event.
Something about the Red Musk from the creators:
Red musk involves unusual spices oil extracts and not flowers for the aroma. Thanks to the Arabs and European explorers who contributed in spreading them around the globe, immensely broadening their use. The Body Shop didn't take it for granted and made the best use out of the three. The Body Shop re-released 'musk' which was being craved by their loyal customers for long by making use of pepper, cinnamon and tobacco. Red musk is a bold and blunt combination of the three being used efficiently and effectively for the aroma therapy. Red Musk by The Body Shop being the first fragrance with man-made cruelty-free musk. 

~What I have to say about the Red Musk~
The moment I held the package in my hand for the first time I knew this was not something ordinary but something that will have people raving about it.Not just that this is the first man made cruelty free musk by The Body Shop but the thing that makes it stand apart is that it has
NO FLOWERS ONLY SPICES

Yes its not that flowery scent that at once freshens up your minds and gives you the power to do the impossible-Yet--One spritz of this warm and sexy smelling musk and you are in heaven--Yes Its deefinitely one of the most scandalous perfumes I have ever used.It was marketed and advertised as feminine but if the option was given to me I would term this one as Unisex as it is a mixture of Tobacco-Cinnamon & Pepper!
I am totally in love with this perfume and would definitely love to wear it on this valentine's dinner with my hubby or any celebration dinner etc.It may be Unisex but its definitely not Girly-Intriguing Isn't it..Yes its for all those confident & bold ladies that love to Spice Things Up!
Usually musk is considered as a strong perfume but this is not strong that at once makes your head spin but its very moderate.
The top note is Pepper:It adds an addictive note to the scent
The heart or middle note is Cinnamon:Its sweet yet strong scent makes the perfume irresistable
The bottom or base note is tobacco:Though tobacco is mostly used in male fragrances but here it gives the perfume an  aura of mystery & this is the note that makes the perfume Unisex as well.
The packaging is as lovely as the perfume itself.The box is pure red & made from hard cardboard.Its a perfect gift for valentine's day.The bottle itself is in two shades.Lower half is transparent while the upper half has a warm reddish brown hue.The cap clicks tightly in place to make sure its safe.The bottle is simple yet elegant to hold.
The staying power off the perfume is decent.I sprayed it in the morning and by the night I could still smell it.
So if you want to surprise your partner on valentines either gift him/her a bottle of Red Musk or if you have it yourself then spritz it on because its the
                                          TIME TO SPICE THINGS UP!

~Press Release: The Body Shop Red Musk Fashion Ramp organized by Constantine PR-Islamabad 8th Feb 2015~

The one of a kind scandalous themed, fashion show brings together on one run way the promotion of one of the most classic fragrance ever by The Body Shop  - The daring RED MUSK featuring the trendiest and influentially bold “Arora” by Roma.
Break the rules and play the game! 
Yes, this is what happened after this very fragrance and a scandalous ramp. It's been almost seventeen years now that The Body Shop has discontinued the scent "Wood Musk" which was loved by many. The loyal customers of The Body Shop waited eagerly and pleaded The Body Shop to bring 'MUSK' back to their lives. A distinctive, free spirited scent, to date by The Body Shop named as Red Musk.
This extra ordinary scent "Red Musk" is a combination of natures very much claimed 'hotness' and 'graceful addiction'. The ingredients to Red Musk happen to be pepper, cinnamon and tobacco. Stunned to know this exuberant combination. Red Musk is not a typical feminism smell instead an identity manipulator. The fragrance redefines a women and provokes a more bold side of her. No flowers, no sugar, no coconut, no fruit, just warm spicy sexiness. Not every women desires to be smelled like a fruit and a flower. Red Musk by The Body Shop is perfect for the grown up us in all and by grown up it means a matured sophisticated side. The Body Shop more or less promoted women empowerment through this unique smell. 
A distinct eye catching clothing line with scandalous look by "Arora" portrayed the image of the Red Musk amazingly well. The Red Musk fashion show was a roar from all those women who believe to exist out of bounds. Here it is that something, Wear your identity! Be your self! Be scandalous! Be red!
 Red musk involves unusual spices oil extracts and not flowers for the aroma. Thanks to the Arabs and European explorers who contributed in spreading them around the globe, immensely broadening their use. The Body Shop didn't take it for granted and made the best use out of the three. The Body Shop re-released 'musk' which was being craved by their loyal customers for long by making use of pepper, cinnamon and tobacco. Red musk is a bold and blunt combination of the three being used efficiently and effectively for the aroma therapy. Red Musk by The Body Shop being the first fragrance with man-made cruelty-free musk. It won't be wrong if said Red Musk by The Body Shop exploits people's idealism and introduces new standards. 
Red Musk by The Body Shop is something you will be complimented upon. Red Musk is a revival in the scent industry by The Body Shop. One whiff of Red Musk by The Body Shop... And Be hold! Play grown up when wear Red Musk by The Body Shop. Red Musk by The BodyShop blends in so well with the body chemistry that it doesn't hit you or anyone over the head. Red Musk soothes you and doesn't spin your head. Red Musk by The Body Shop being very sophisticated classy and affordable is wanted by the most at the moment. The Body shop is totally wondrous. Red Musk being spicy warm and gorgeous is exactly what everyone wants in winters. One of the very reason it is being demanded and loved by all. Many women tried it skeptically knowing the unusual ingredients but fell head over and heals in love with it. Red Musk is worth every dime, specially this very season. Red Musk's warm spicy sultry fragrance is being worn and wanted by the majority. The most "in" and "it" thing for the fashion lovers. The musk that is used overpowers the cinnamon and intensifies the smokiness of fragrance giving it a very sexy finish over all. Red Musk by The Body Shop blends in you so well which makes it warm and comforting like that of a smell of a lover being the bestest smell ever . Red Musk by The Body Shop is a high level romance which changes you attitude. Red Musk by The Body Shop is more like heavenly ornament which can be felt. 
RED MUSK BY THE BODY SHOP HAS EVERYTHING!! It completes you.
Scandalous themed ramp complimented Red Musk amazingly well. It can't be more apt.  "Arora" being the designer of the fashion show didn't disappoint any. The very chic cloth line exhibited through the very talented young models of Islamabad grabbed the attention of the enthusiastic audience. The showcased line amplified that attitude ; attitude being scandalous ! 
There were two music performances by Umair Jaswal and Maria Fatima Unera Qureshi. The very known and liked Umair Jaswal of Qayaas ( Pakistan's pioneer in progressive rock music) surprised the audience when he appeared down the catwalk singing( mention the song ). Even more of a surprise to catch Maria Fatima Unera Qureshi ; NescafĂ© Basement finest promising talent on the ramp with the models while she sang. Both the artist walked the ramp with grace and and were at ease while performing their very songs. 
The Music performance was not the only entertainment. Smash after smash, two dance performances beautifully done left the invitees in an awe. Taking them to an other world. Leaving them mesmerised and hypnotised. The invitees enjoyed it thoroughly and didn't miss a single move.
The most scandalous ramp ever and scandalous also means awesome here. Skin is indeed in, for now and forever. It depends on how fashionably and sincerely it is magnified. "Arora" unveiled impressively. Their presence made it worth the efforts involved. The fashion show was a huge success and talk of the town. People from all walks of life attended the Red Musk Fashion Ramp. Socialites and celebrities from Islamabad attended the event with great zeal and admiration. 
Not to forget “Faiza's" one of the best names in the make up artist fraternity who contributed in the make over enhancing the look of the models in particular and the whole event in general. "Faiza's" ultra modern touch up using The Body Shop Products made an isloo night scandalous for the people who attended the fashion show.
Red Musk Fashion Ramp was certainly a memorable event. The turn out was huge and commendable. Constantine PR is over whelmed by the amazing response.
Red Musk, Arora ,Faiza's, Umair Jaswal, Maria Fatima Unera Qureshi and dance performances were the ingredients in the ongoing saga of Constantine PR's constant  innovation management. 
The work done by Constantine PR was pure quality and the efforts put into every piece could be felt.

~REVIEW:Sweet Touch Magnetic and simple Nail Lacquers~

Hello Lovlies
Hope you all been fine.Sometimes life gets so busy that even if you wish you cant spare time for things you love to do.Same thing happened with me in the last one n half month.But now I am back !So lets not waste any more time and get back to this post.
I got a lovely Care package from Sweet Touch Cosmetics some weeks ago.It contained some lovely nail colors.
Sweet Touch Cosmetics always give special atterntion to the packaging.

It got the two simple nail lacquers and one is the new magnetic nail art polish.
The names of the simple nail colors are
Sweet Kiss 1030
Teal 1113
& the shade for magnetic nail art is 1142 Plum Magnetic.
I ll review and swatch Sweet Kiss and Plum Magnetic today.
Sweet Kiss 1030

Sweet Kiss with nail art 

applying the magnetic nail art

Sweet Touch 1142 Red Magnetic
WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT SWEET TOUCH NAIL COLORS:
The thing I am loving most about these nail colors is the formula & the wide brush size.The wideness of the brush helps in coating the nails more easily & specially if you are short of time it makes things easier.The nail colors dry pretty quickly on the nails as well.
The color Sweet Kiss is a nude pink shade & its perfect for everyday wear & winters as well.I applied two coats to get this opaqeness.
The magnetic nail art shade I got is Red & I must say its gorgeous.Red is usually a neutral color so I am loving it more.Sweet Touch introduction of magnetic nail art is great as it is among the pioneers of introducing magnetic nail polish in Pakistan.Just apply the nail color and while its wet hold the magnet on top of the nail.Count till 10 and back and Voila....what beautiful nails.The only thing to take care of is not to let the magnet touch the nails.
One coat of Sweet Touch nail colors starts chipping in a day.Otherwise if  there are two coats the chipping delays for atleast 2 days.
The range of the simple nail colors are from 85-100 & the Magnetic range comes in 6 lovely shades.
The usual nail shades are available for 140-180 at different stores nationwide whereas the magnetic is available for Rs.460.
Overall they are great for everyday use as there is a variety of colors to choose from as well.
Thanks a lot for stopping by.
