Sugar Coated Body Scrub from Scoop o Scrub

Hey y'all! This review is long LONG over-due. So I'm just gonna get right into it.

I'm totally nuts for organic skin care products but companies like LUSH and Boots Botanics don't exist here and The Body Shop is a big question mark. And then one day Areej started this store of homemade body scrubs and I knew I had to have it. I grabbed on at the Bohemian Crunch last year and surprise surprise! I LURVE IT!

The scrub is exactly what I needed. The brown sugar holds well with the coconut oil and doesn't disperse instantly. It's coarse enough to buff your skin well but it's not at all harsh. Plus the oil leaves my skin soft. When I'm feeling lazy, I skip moisturiser. The smell is wonderful and refreshing. This scrub and St. Ives body washes is all that I've been using and my sun tan and damage from university has definitely lessened.

I confess, I don't use it regularly. Even if you did, it would easily last 2-3 months. There's often shelf life issue when it comes to organic products, but Scoop-o-Scrub ticks off that box too. I've had this baby for about 10 months now and it's still great. But, you do need to avoid getting water drops inside the scrub.

Lastly, I would definitely like to praise Areej for working so hard on the packaging. It's totally adorable! Exactly like those diy scrubs you see on Pinterest. Plus, it comes with usage instructions. Yayy!

You all can check out the Facebook store here. I got this 200g jar for PKR 500 or something and I think that's absolutely worth it! There are a lot more scrubs at the store now and I'm totally getting some more for summer!

Have a great thursday!

*Disclaimer* I wasn't paid to write this review. This product was purchased by me and my review is 100% honest.

Khaadi sale plus my turban hijab

Hey everyone! How is the sale season treating you? Let me share my little experience. Over the weekend I went to the the mega Khaadi sale. Even though lately I haven't been buying Khaadi ('cause you know) I just tagged along with my sister. 

First, I couldn't even check out the stitched shirts because there were such civilised ladies there. I mean, hitting me and snatching shirts from my hand. It wasn't even that good a sale to be pushing and hurting people around you.

Looking totally normal, I think

Where have I been

Working on my dress
I remember badly waiting for my diploma to end and planing out what's next on my list of things to do and accomplish. Now that it's over, it's taking me forever to get back to my routine. It's like I've been so exhausted the entire 2016 and now everything's hitting me back. Plus, the cold - me & winters, we don't really go well together. It's almost been 20 days since the fashion show (more about that later) and I feel like now I need to at least get back to blogging and begin sorting out other stuff.

4-Day Trip to Islamabad + Haul

Hey everyone! I just could not fit in my schedule to blog or keep up with my store. Or see my family. Or eat or sleep. I was extremely occupied with my fashion portfolio. So much that I ended up destroying my health (I am obsessive that way). The dehydration was getting to me and I almost missed my trip to Islamabad. But I gathered my strength and I did it. I packed and tagged along with my sister to Islamabad.

Karachi School of Art Fashion Show 2016

Hey everyone! I know it's not everyday that I cover an event on my blog and neither do I ever volunteer. But hey, this time I actually got off my lazy bum and volunteered for Karachi School of Art Fashion Show 2016 held on July 23rd at Rangoonwala Auditorium, designers include my seniors at the institute (batch of 2015). The event was attended by chief guests sculptor Rabia Zuberi and designer Yousuf Bashir Qureshi.

The fashion show was themed at 'Angels & Demons'. Each student had designed an evening gown and cocktail dress based on either angel or demon or both. Even though the fashion design programme consists of only 2 semesters, the students performed brilliantly. The cuts, colors, accessories, everything was totally mesmerizing. It was all thanks to the supervisors Mrs. Jiya Hassan and Mrs. Uroosa Umair for guiding the students so well throughout the year and bringing out the best in them. I can't wait for my own show ^_^

The photographs were taken by Raheel Sualiheen. If you are interested in any of these dresses just email me at and I'll forward your request to the designer.

Hope you all liked this post! I sure enjoyed being there and volunteering for it <3 p="">

Have a beautiful weekend!
