When Blogger Buddies shop for Eid.

Friday, July 3rd, 2015 marked one of the exciting shopping day in my calendar. If you follow me on Instagram, you must have seen some sneak peek about the "bloggers Eid spree" pictures. And, if you don't follow me, it's about time you should *SMILES*. 

Lets get started with our shopping day out.

The four fashion blogging buddies; myself, Maliha Rao of The Red Alice, Umair Mirza of UMAIRICA & Owais Haji of Owaisisms went out to shop for Eid together. To see what they shopped, head over to their blogs.

Our first stop was The Ocean Mall. The first shop to check was Splash. Had no plans to shop from Splash, the guys wanted to check the store out, I got the chance to see too & to find good pieces. Ended up buying two things. Next stop in the same mall was "Hobo by Hub" - a shop I was waiting to go to after drooling over the sandals in Daraz Fashion Week. Maliha & I went into Hobo by Hub, while guys looked around for their things in other shops. We tried a few flats & sandals, along with some fun & quirky accessories. Selfie was mandatory! Hobo by Hub has a pretty good collection of heels and flats, from casual to formals. I walked out of the store with the heels, I had my eyes on. The good thing is, I found my size, which is rare at most of the stores; yes, I have pretty small feet.

That ONE kiosk of jewelry everyone enjoyed looking at
Looked around a few more stores in the mall, including Bonanza, Charles & Keith (which had a sale), Gul Ahmed and a cute little jewelry stall - the main attraction for all of us. The stall is next to Al Karam with ethnic jewelry pieces with affordable price.
FOOD - Enchiladas at New York Coffee
Meanwhile, we were enjoying shopping at The Ocean Mall, it was iftar time for which we went to NewYork Coffee at Zamzama. They had a pretty good Ramadan deal for iftar going on. Maliha had Tangy fish, which was the best out of all we ordered. I and the boys ordered the Enchiladas which was yum too, and can't forget to mention the refreshing sharbat. After the scrumptious meal, we rushed to Dolmen Mall Clifton.

The stores listed for Dolmen Mall were: Sapphire, Beech Tree, Agha Noor and Generation. Extras were many. We started with Daaman & the shopping finished at Break Out. Agha Noor, was overcrowded and I had to pass it for the day. Sapphire had a good collection of lawn casuals & silk embellished tunics; nothing appealed me to be honest. Beech Tree on the other hand had a huge variety to select from and I am always impressed with the quality and the collection they have. Not only they have good collection of clothes, but accessories too. Generation also has a good collection of whites & beiges, a very elegant collection. I picked a cigarette pant in cotton from Generation, that is perfectly tailored & you will not believe it was just for Rs. 695 only!

After looking around quite a few stores, my shopping day ended and that's when shopping day started for both the boys, when they entered Yellow till we went to Break Out, where they shopped the most while me and Maliha sat and helped them in shopping.

It was not just a shopping day for us, but a day filled with laughter, fun and lots of catching up between crazy four.

The last stop & must stop was Green-O (my favorite place) before we headed out of the mall.

These are the things I bought:
1. Generation Pants - PKR 698
2. Splash Earrings - PKR 550
3. Splash T-shirt - PKR 999 (originally for 2500)
4. Hobo By Hub Sandals - PKR 3250

Sneak Peek along with entire Eid outfit post will be up on my Instagram. Don't forget to share your outfit post & tag me when you do! Enjoy the shopping days and have a great Eid.

From where did you shop for Eid?


P.S. All the things were bought from my personal money and pictures are taken by myself. Nobody is allowed to copy my pictures.

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

About the product:

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
