~~~Another NOTD~~~

Hello Lovlies,

Nail Painting is a lot similar to face painting.Today I am doing a Nail Art using two colors.The two colors are Medora French manicure white for the base & Diana of London Stary Night for the design.



We are about to paint cow spots on our nails today :)

For the Nail Art First Paint ur Nails with Two light coats of Medora French Manicure White color ,Let It dry.




With the help of a Q Tip and Nail polish remover clean any nail color from the skin around the Nails.

With the polish brush add irregular black dots using the Diana of London Stary Night. You dont have to worry at all about the size and shape :)

Let them Dry completely  before applying a transparent top coat.
                                                 
                                                     Here is a pic of what I created .


Tip of the day for Nail Art:

The paints will dry in a minute unless you paint extra thick layers.Wait for each color to dry before you paint right next to it or on top of it.

I hope you lovlies liked it.Have fun :)

My First Haul ~Infact A Mini Haul !

Hello Lovlies,

If you live in Islamabad you must be knowing that for most of your Cosmetic & Toiletries Shopping Only some places come to mind where you get a Full Variety of Different brands and products.One visit and you can grab anything you need and want for use...A similar place where I visit very often is D.Watson .I love to go to the branch in Blue Area as I have always been going there and know what to get on which shelve.So I went there lately and bought some interesting things and thought I would do a haul post about it and share with all of you .I would be sharing the price and small reviews about the different products.Any questions are invited.

So to start with Here are the things that I bought:



    Following is the list of Items and their prices mentioned,

1. FREEMAN bare foot foot scrub ~ Rs.310
2. FREEMAN toning body lotion    ~ Rs.300
3. NIVEA Happy time body lotion  ~Rs.300
4. RIMMEL blush in Tuscany ~ Rs.525
5. MAYBELLINE dream mousse blush in Pink Frosting ~Rs.840
6. FARMASI lip liner 212~ Rs. 195
7. FARMASI glitter eye pencil 410~ Rs.230
8.  4U2 STYX eye liner in green ~Rs 345
9. ARTDECO eye brow pencil no.6~Rs.450

I really like all the products i bought as I have paid quite some time in choosing from the vast range :)

First of all for quite some time I have been looking for a nice contouring powder ,I have also previously used Maybelline Bronzer for contouring but it hasnt given me the wanted result as it was a bit shimmery so it doesnt really look good on the skin and specially for the contouring..I finally got a very nice shade and product for contouring YES,it is quite suitable if you want a matte not to visible contouring with a natural effect.Here i have shown a swatch with the product u can hardly see the shade as it blends perfectly with skin .If you look carefully u can see the different shades.I know it is a Blush shade but i know it works well for contouring as well and specially when you cant find a good contouring powder.

  
Ok next comes another Blush,I have lately developed a lot of interest in Blushes but for the first time I bought this color Pink Frosting from Maybelline Dream mousse blush series.Its a lovely baby pink shade with a shimmery effect.Its actually a cute color,and teh frosting effect is also very visible on the skin.It is a nice shade for people with cool undertones.


Next comes in Liners,Firstly two eye liners,One is Farmasi Glitter eye liner in 212 shade that is a lovely bottle green shade with glitters,specially good to wear on Weddings:).Another is by 4u2 Styx and a green as well that would give the eye a bright open eye effect.Next is the lip liner from Farmasi,its a pink shade and can be worn with Pink or Nude shade lip colors.Last is the Art deco eye brow pencil,I dont like my eye brows very dramatic thats why this is the color for me .Follwing are the pencils:


And here are the swatches with refernce:


Top to Bottom:

~ Farmasi Glitter eye pencil 410
~ 4u2 styx eye liner in green
~ Farmasi lip pencil 212
~ Artdeco eye brow pencil 6

Next two products are Body lotion.The larger one is by Freeman & it is said to be a Toning body lotion with a lovely smell of coconut and guava and is good for firming the skin.Its use leaves your skin smooth and soft and helps improve the texture and appearance of skin.



The next Body lotion is Nivea's Happy time and its good to be kept in your hand bag :)Its leaves a feel good sensation on your skin and has a very fruity smell to it.
 
Next is Freemans' Foot Scrub that exfoliates and soothes rough and dry skin.Foot Products are good to be used more in summers when feet are exposed.Summer isnt far away then ....is it....:)

So I hope u enjoyed reading my haul post and also the reviews and my thoughts :)If you want to ask anything comments are always welcome...

take cares & always stay happy

Areej.

Langkawi ~ A Destination I would Always Love to Visit Again & Again :)

Hello Lovlies,Today I am doing a post on Langkawi Malaysia.I hope you will enjoy it.


Langkawi is the archipelago of 99 tropical islands in Malaysia & is Malaysia's Top Destination.Lately it has also emerged as the No.1 Honeymoon Destination for Newly Weds as The Islands are Secluded its Beaches are amongst the Lovliest Beaches of the world.Though to some travellers it would appear to be a bit quiet but If You want to hear the Sounds of Natures and enjoy the True Beauty of Nature this is the place to Go.



Me & My Hubby both love Travelling and Luckily visited Langkawi some two years back.We Stayed for 4 days in this Paradise on earth.I am not Exaggerating when i say That it is a "PARADISE ON EARTH".It Really is breathtakingly beautiful.we explored the different Islands & beaches,enjoyed the Island hopping tour that is one of the top things to do when in Langkawi.To get the best views we travelled all the way upto the top of the Machincang range via a cable car.The cable car ride is itself very memorable if you dont have a Height Fobia beacause when you reach the top you are at 625 Meters above sea levels but its worth the views you ejoy from up there.Here is a pic we took during the Cable Car Ride



The first picture is taken from the Top after we finished the Cable Car Ride

The Other best thing about Langkawi is its White Sandy beaches that are fringed with cocunut Trees and casuarians .To enjoy the beach its recommended to spend a full day at the beach relaxing and enjoying the breeze ,basking in the sun or swimming in the gorgeous Aqua Blue Waters.Various Water Sports activities are always available there.Its the perfect place to build sand castles if you want to.



Its Said that Its a Must to enjoy a Sunrise & Sunset completely once in a Life time & so given the oppurtunity We Enjoyed this marvellous Sunset at Langkawi's main beach Pantai Cenang (pronounced Pantai Cheena)...The play of colors on the Sky & the beautiful reflections in the blue water creates A million dollar picture...I am sure you will agree when you see the following picture.
.



   Thanks a lot for reading,stay happy always:)

My First Post is Infact "LOVE SONNET 18 By Shakespeare"


  LOVE SONNET 18~WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And Summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And oft' is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd:
But thy eternal Summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wanderest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
Shakespeare's Sonnet 18 is about the celebration Of beauty as The loved one Addressed is said to be more lovely than a Summer's Day..A summer's Day can loose its warmth & its complexion can be dimmed but the Beauty of the Beloved is evergreen & Everlasting..I think the feelings that are expressed in this Sonnet are very true if felt from an admirer's point of view...
For all the Beautiful Girls out there ,Celebrate Your Beauty & Take Cares
