Guest Post:Fashion Speaks!

Ever heard a girl saying, don’t mess with me or my pants? I bet you did. Feminism is one thing a girl’s got but what she keeps as a secret is the slight ting of dominancy she admires over men. She likes to do what she loves, in full authority. Like with clothes, work & home. Women & fashion maybe considered old friends. And shouldn’t they? They have a love & hate relation with each other.


 In Pakistan, women trends have really turned massive statement tables when it comes to Pakistani dresses like Shalwar Kameez. In the last one or two years, it has met some drastic alterations with, the elongated & oversized Kameezes making its way into the fashion world. However, western wear was sparred this rashness, maintaining its work & game in the play, sticking to slim fits under jeans. This speaks authority & style all at the same time. Not only this, but these skinny pants uphold feminism to its divine grandeur.
Pakistani online shops like Daraz is helping prop up this revolution & is catering slim fits for almost all volumes sponsoring leading brands like Xtreme Wear, Yellow, Alizeh Pasha, Stone age, Todd Davis etc to show case these gorgeous artworks for you to try on.


Asian beauties have all assets needed to flash a fashion statement. Correct me if I am wrong but we have the looks, the body & the attitude to make almost anything seem attractive. The boys can answer this better though. Right boys? 
Pakistani dresses have the right ingredients of charm & sophistication, but a skinny pair of jeans can do wonders. Slip them on & see for yourself..
Pakistan maybe lacking behind in many genres, but our fashion industry has gone miles & is standing poles apart from where it stood yesterday. With the evolution & progress of Pakistani online shops, buyers & sellers have met a level of mutual contentment. 

Jeans is such a piece of cloth that is stitched for everyone & for every occasion. Besides, what can work better than a slim fitted skinny pant for a spontaneous concert night or for an all girls shopping spree!
Pakistani Urban apparels are not only known over the country but perhaps, over the globe. Not everybody can resist the Asian temptations. Now can they, girls?

[Review]:Labato Magnetic Stand Smart Cover for iPad 4,3&2 Lbt-IPD-02H10 - Black~

Hey Lovlies
If you are a regular visitor on my blog you may be knowing that I own an Ipad 2 & I love to collect different protective cases.Recently when a social media advertising company asked me to review an I pad case of my choice from one of their clients Labato I agreed.The variety available made it difficult for me to choose one that I liked.I atlast picked this Black Beauty.

~MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF Lbt-IPD-02H10 - Black~
  • Soft internal lining providing a full protection.Curved fit on all edges and corners for full protection.
  • Magnetic smart cover design allows wake up and sleep instantly. Christmas gift.
  • Slim design, light weight. Easily assemble and disassemble. Perfectly fit for iPad 4&3&2
  • Premium Leather with strong tenacity and wear ability matches with contrast color stripes, infusing vogue into conciseness.
  • Free return of or replace the product within 90 days supported. If you are satisfied with our products, please kindly leave us a five-star positive feedback as well as your using experiencere
~MY EXPERIENCE WITH LABATO MAGNETIC STAND SMART COVER`
The packaging was very much Apple like.You can bring into mind the white casing and boxes the iphones usually come packed in.The case was packed in the white cardboard box seen in the above picture.Inside were two protective sheets one for the back and one for the front.Alongside was a simple satin wipe to clean off the screen.

I ordered black this time because black is my ever favorite color and this design appealed to me too.This black case comes with the signature Labato stripes.The stripes are red, white & blue on this case.This case is compatible with Ipad 2, 3 & 4.


As me and my baby share mutual love for the Ipad,I can only be seen with it while he is sleeping or playing.Therefore the protection of Ipad is very important as it is being handled by a toddler equally.The back is hard on the outside with a soft inner side to keep the ipad scratch free.Similarly the front is hard padded into four adjustable positions.This is a big help incase you want to type or you want to watch something only.

Now lets get on the important stuff.
The cut outs and openings are quite comfortable to work out.Ports are easily accessible.The jacks can be plugged in and pulled out easily.The camera cut out is also clear and open.Pictures come out clear as well.
Sometimes it happens that the cut outs are small specially the camera ones and it effects the picture result.
The stitching of the material is also very neat and impeccable.This neat work overall improves the quality of the case and makes it more attractive and appealing.




How very neat ! I Love that Labato logo(Sorry my son pulled off the O )
The case has everything that a good I pad case must have.Compact and slim design along with the magnetic flip makes it a good deal.Extremely light in weight and offering full protection doesn't make it an offer to be missed.
Besides all these positive points the price is also very attractive.The astonishing thing is this case is available for different prices on different websites.
$19.99 on Amazon with free shipping.
$14.95 on Aliexpress.com
$14.99 on Ebay.

Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay Happy,stay blessed.

~NOTD: Flormar Neon Colors N009~

Sweet November is coming to an end today.
Leaving behind only one month more to start a new beginning..2014!
Its been quite a while I did a NOTD post.Have been wanting to share this nail color for quite some time.
As you fashionistas already know plums and purples are the hues to rock the fall & winters this year..why not wear a matching purple nail color.
I am wearing Flormar N009 on my nails today.

Its from the Flormar Neon Colors Range.Its not a very neon purple though.
The formula is nice.I applied 2 coats without a base or a top coats and I love the results.If you are in a hurry and still have to apply this color,only one coat is also enough.


Purple is the shade of the royalty and really you get this feeling of royalness while wearing this lovely purple on the nails.Purple is used a lot in meditation and it is known to give you peace of mind.
I love the triangular handle of the applicator.It makes it easier to hold between the fingers while applying.The nail color is also very quick drying.While I applied on the second hand the first hand was absolutely dry.
I got this nail color from Al Fateh Centaurus mall for Rs.250/-.
Have you tried Flormar nail colors.
What nail color are you wearing on your nails today.?
Comments and questions are welcome.
Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay happy,stay blessed.
Love,

~[REVIEW]: Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Pink Punch ~

Hey Lovlies,
Winters are already at its zenith.
Our skin,hands,feet and lips need extra care in this harsh weather.The cold makes our lips chapped and cracked.To help them get better there are so many products out there in the market.One of the products that recently caught our attention was Maybelline's Baby Lips.Though there are newer versions added in the line now but I am reviewing this one that was first in the line when they got introduced.It is the Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Pink Punch.

The packaging is really cute.Its not at all boring like those other lip balm tubes out there.The colors are really funky and eye catching.This shade that I have got is Pink Punch.All the shades are mentioned on the side of each tube.

I am a hardcore fan of Labello as it was the first lip balm that I owned as a kid.I believe it is the very best lip nourishment available but still we can try other options that are fun and cheap.This Pink Punch is a neon pink tinted lip balm.It has little freckles of shimmer in it that makes it look lovely in the tube.Upon opening the tube just before applying you can smell the delicious raspberry flavored bubble gum aroma.The shade looks really pigmented in the tube but its different when applied on the lips.
Here is how it looks when swatched on the hand.
It does look wonderfully pigmented with that slight shimmer
Now lets see how it appears on my somewhat pigmented lips.
Here a single application of Baby Lips - Pink Punch
I am not really a person who would go out wearing only lip balms so I really don't care how it looks on my lips.These days in winters I am seen wearing this lip balm all the time while I am home because I am having seriously dry lips these days.It is very light on the lips and makes them super soft as soon as its applied.Its not waxy or sticky.Like all other lip balms this one also has to be reapplied after few hours.It is good to go for those girls who only want a hint of color on their lips.
The bullet is pink itself and shelves inside a bubblegum pink tube as well.
The cap is transparent with Funky yellow writing that makes it altogether a fresh combination.
For the price tag that it supports its actually a good product.It doesnt stay true to its claim of 8 hours of moisture as it has to be reapplied after few hours again.
The bullet is quite huge in size as well.Its a handbag & pocket friendly product.


Recommendations:
If you love tinted lip balms with fruity smell and softening quality,then don't miss this range.There are many options to choose from.I am actually looking forward to buying something from their new neon black Electro range.
Lip balms are a must for winters,so why not try something new this time!
You can get yours today from any Maybelline counter for Rs.350 & it is also available for online order at Just4girls.pk

Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay happy,stay blessed.
Love,
Areej
