Karachi Beauty & Fashion Bloggers Salon Meet Up!

As always, blogger's meet-ups are ALWAYS fun. You get to meet new and old bloggers and get to know them more - the face behind the blog you read. 

30th August, 2013 - Bloggers Salon Meet up at The Raintree Mini Spa
We were totally 9 girls who attended that meet up. Initially they were 12, but only 9 showed up. Following are the bloggers who were present at the meet-up:

Maliha Rao of The Curious Red Alice
Rakhshanda Khan of Rakhshan's Blog
Nida Moughal of Glitter Smitter
Naimal of Peachy Pout
Shaheen of Cherry Cross
Marium of Marium Says
Cenam of Cenam'z Beauty Blog
Jadirah of Jasmine Catches Butterflies

The exciting evening started at 4:00 pm. The moment I entered that place, it seemed SO calm and soothing. I was awed by the serene exterior and interior.  If you've been to that place, you would know what I am talking about and a few pictures will tell that too. 

First things first, "A BIG thank you to Maliha for arranging the amazing meet up, to Lubna of Raintree Mini Spa for giving us the place, her time and for all the lovely food, drinks, pampering and 25% discount vouchers, along with a free blow dry for 3 lucky girls and for the goodie bag filled with two yummy cupcakes and a gift voucher."

Moving on to the meet up, after everyone reached we introduced ourselves to each other. A few knew each other, and a few were new to each other. After the introductions, started the pampering; drinks along with nail art, which included caviar, fur and magnetic nails. We did a lucky draw for a free blow dry at the Raintree Mini Spa (courtesy Raintree), after everyone was done with the nails. The three lucky winners were Naimal, Jadirah and Marium.

Products up for swap/sale
The evening full of fun moved onwards to Hi-tea, chat sessions about blogging, makeup and random things, laughs, photo sessions and a mini blog sale/swap (which was fun). It was an amazing two hours of laugh, chat and knowing each other.

Lubna, the owner of the Spa joined us in between. She shared about how she started Raintree and everything related to Raintree and herself. It was a nice knowing what Raintree offers apart from Spa services.  She is extremely sweet and polite; pampering us with SO many things plus giving a space to us shows what a sweet person she is.

About Rain Tree Spa:

Not only do they offer salon services, but other services like makeup training, grooming sessions for young girls, fitness activities and lots more.

The bloggers I met for the first time were Cenam, Shaheen, Marium and Jadirah. It was nice knowing them. It is always good to meet and know the face and personality behind the blogs. Looking forward to more events and meet ups like these in the future. Also, looking forward to meeting more bloggers.

Review - Watsons Repairing Treatment Wax

Hello pretty girls!

Today, I am going to review the most  requested product after my 2nd Haul post :) Yes, it is Watsons Repairing Treatment Wax.

I went to Naheed Supermarket and found this little jar. I had alot of time that day to go through something for my haircare. I picked up a jar from Boots, which was more like a conditioner to me. But, when I saw this, I picked up this and read about it. I thought of giving it a try. This one is for Dry or Permed Hair. And it is in flavor HONEY. 

It says : Enjoy a salon treatment for your hair at home!
Watsons Honey Treatment Wax is formulated with natural honey. It deeply nourishes your hair whilst repairing each hair strand from root to tip. Enriched with panthenol and hydrolzed wheat protein, it leaves your hair healthier and more manageable.

Glamourous Face 48+48 Eye shadow Palette [Review]

The wedding season is on, some of you might be looking for good products to buy for yourself for your own wedding or for yourself to get ready for someone else's wedding. It is really hard to find good quality eyeshadows with affordable price. All this year I kept looking for a good eye shadow palette, but was unable to find one. I ended up buying single eye shadows.

Finally, I came to know about this palette through a blogger [Sara Hassan] who did a review about it on her blog. Seriously, after reading the reviews I was so excited to buy it. Thanks to her for sharing. I wouldn't have bought it if I would have seen it before the review. 

So, without wasting the time, let me introduce you to my favourite palette :)
I am in love with this palette. It has all you need. I was looking for so many colours which I found in it. I am really excited to have this palette, and it is my first ever BIG palette. Colours like carbon black, warm browns, pinks, greens are the ones I love the mos…

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.
