~Review: Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Eau de Parfum~

So girls Its almost time to indulge in gifts:chocolates,perfumes & all things lovable.
This post might be helpful to some guys who want to buy something special for their partners.
Perfumes are the no.1 choice to be gifted on valentines day so why not review a perfume today!
Its called Signorina by Salvatore Ferragamo.
The alliance of grace and memorability.
A modern floral bouquet: the reinterpretation of the iconic elegance of jasmine with the unexpected and delicate sweetness of pannacotta.
The perfectly sophisticated yet chic scent signature for  young women.
Perfume and scents are the first sign of femininity.Some perfumes are pure indulgence.Sometimes when you are feeling down a fresh spritz of your favourite perfume can make you feel fresh & lifts your spirit.
Signorina is a lovely perfume enclosed in a beautiful glass bottle adorned with baby pink ribbons and a gold round lid.The perfume bottle can appeal to feminine sex of all ages...from girl to woman.There is only the name & the brand name written on the bottle making it more appealing.

Upon spritizing the perfume a musky/juicy smell surround you.Its a perfume where you may miss the top and middle note if you don't concentrate.The fruity/juicy that is the middle and musky the last note are the most apparent to me.I love fruity musky perfumes therefore I love this one.Once i sprayed my wrist with couple of spritz I wanted to keep on smelling it.It has a good staying power of 6-7 hours.
Pair up your favourite pearls with this perfume-A little adorning infront of the vanity table and you are good to go!
This is a perfume neither too light nor very strong.Its just right!
This is meant to be for all those gorgeous ladies who love that sweet feiminine smell.
This bottle holds 100ml of perfume & can be used 30 months after opening it.
It was gifted to me but its price may vary from Rs.6000 - Rs.8000 at different places.
Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay happy,stay blessed.

P.S : Happy Valentine's Day!

~[Review]:Skin+i Mini Hand & Foot Spa Ritual~

This is a really interesting post that I am sharing today.Actually its a product review but it feels like I am about to review some spa or saloon!
Its Skin+i that I am talking about.

“Choose a Ritual today to reveal a brighter, fresher-looking you.”

Inspired by traditional spa treatments the Mini Hand Spa Ritual and the Mini Foot Spa Ritual revive, renew and hydrate the skin.Quick and convenient, you can use our rituals every day whether at home, at the office or on the move, whilst freely using your hands and feet. You will be surprised at how easily these Rituals begin to fit into your daily routine.Using natural fruit and plant extracts, the formula has beauty-boosting infusions that instantly hydrate and protect, helping the skin regain its natural radiance and beauty.Designed to deliver maximum results in minimal time the Mini Spa Rituals are great before a social engagement or when you just want a little ‘me-time’. They’re the perfect pick-me up!
The results: silky soft hands you can be proud of and feet that will look and feel fabulous in your favourite designer heels or sandals.
Well for a person/mommy like me who doesn't has enough extra time to spend on manis and pedis at the spa regularly this was a great oppurtunity to try these products.The products had a very professional appeal and offcourse by the look of them I was expecting great results.The instructions and the how to use tips were helpful and easy.Within a matter of minutes I was in a refreshing spa at home!
Let me explain with pictures now.
Just have a look at the list of ingrediants up there...every ingrediant is screaming skin food!
I was so excited to try them.

These gloves actually have two layers.One is the outer layer and then there is an inner layer.We have to put our hands inside the innermost layer that is soaked in this light scented liquid.Dont worry the liquid doesnt spill.The gloves are only soaked and after wearing them and massaging them the liquid is transferred onto your hands.Massaging them for a minute or two and them leave on for 15 minutes.
Remove the hands from the gloves and massage any more oils on the hands.

And Ta-Daaa look at the difference...My hands were super soft ,smooth,supple and even the skin tone was improved.My hands looked brighter than usual.I used these gloves in the mid of last week and believe me still my hands and feet look better than their usual self.
Now lets move onto the foot spa ritual:
Same lovely nourishing ingrediants
The socks -Aren't they cute!
They are also similar to the hand gloves and have two layers and the innermost layer is soaked in wet liquid.
Put these cute socks on and massage them for a minute or two.Then leave  on for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes remove them from the socks and rub any remaining liquid onto the feet.

And Ooo-Lalaa what a difference.My super happy feet.I wanted to walk on the clouds only that day and didnt want my feet to touch the floor or any substance that could destroy the look of my super clean and soft feet.
I am totally impressed with the results.
And as they said feel fabulous in your favourite designer heels or sandals here I am showing off my feet and designer heels!
These are a dream come true for a busy mommy like me as they are super convenient to use at home without any hassle.Perfect for flaunting perfect feet in summers or at a wedding or a party.
One sachet is for Rs.495 and the box that contains 5 are for Rs.2000/-
I dont think they are expensive as a manicure or pedicure at the salon can cost you more than that!

Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay happy Always.

~{NOTD & Nail Art} :Color Studio Professional nail colors Superman Blue & Tequila Sunrise~

Hello Girls
How are you all doing!
Well I have been in hibernation from blogging mode since nearly a month due to some personal reasons & some family things.
Well now I am back :)
Starting off with sharing this little fun post with you.
Recently I won a contest at Color Studio Professional Pakistan's facebook page.
As a present I got these nail colors and a lipstick.

As soon as I laid my eyes on these two nail colors I knew what was brewing in my mind.
Yes Minions!Yes those little cute creatures from the movie Despicable 1 & 2.
So this is truly my first try at Minion's nail art.You may tell me how I did it :)
Here is another closer shot.

The two main nail colors are Superman Blue and Tequila Sunrise by Color Studio Professional.
The shade used for eyes base is Stranger Tides from O.P.I Pirates of the Caribbean Collection & the little details in Black are from a Beautyuk nail color.
The base color is Superman Blue and I think its one of the very prettist blues to be worn alone.Usually blue shades don't look good on me but I am loving this blue on my nails.
& I love how they have namesaked it!

            It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman!

I have applied 2 coats of Superman Blue to get this look.Its without a top coat.But the texture and formula is awesome.Feels good in just two coats.Then on top of that I have applied two coats of Tequila Sunrise to get the yellow base for the minions.
I have always liked Color Studio nail colors.Their formula is very nice.They are reasonable priced as well.
All these nail colors are available nation wide at drugstores from Rs.250-Rs.300/-
They can be ordered online at Just4Girls & Beauty Arena.
You can also find Color Studio Pakistan on Facebook
Have you tried any nail art recently?
Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay happy always.
