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 jaybeesjournal@outlook.com 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!
Love,

Sweet Touch matte lipstick is perfection!

Hey beauties! I'm back after a much needed break. Hope you all have been doing well.

During Ramadan I was sent a Makeup City goody bag and this lipstick was the one thing I was most excited to try. Sadly, I haven't been feeling well all throughout Ramadan, Eid and the post-Eid (the anxieties and stuff). I tried it out today and I loved it! In a single statement I would say that this is the best budget-friendly matte lipstick that I've ever tried. But you're welcome to read the rest of the blog ^_^.

When I was putting on the first layer, it felt extremely hard and I was really annoyed. But I guess it softened up after that and the lipstick applied like a dream. It is heavenly pigmented and covered up every bit of my lips. Like, whenever I put on matte lipstick, the cracks and dry parts are left void of color and it is just a sad situation for me. But not with this one. It applied just like a creamy lipstick would!

I am totally amazed by the formula. The whole time I had it on, I was making faces, smiling broadly, putting, etc, just to see if my lips would crack up. But they never did. This is why, my friends, you need this lipstick in your life! You know I have extremely dry lips and NEVER has a matte lipstick been so kind to me.

The color lasts really well. I drank tea 2 hours into wearing it; a bit of color did come off on the mug but my lips remained fresh. No bleeding whatsoever and I didn't need a touch up at all. Sadly, 4 hours into wear my lips were attacked by my sister's hand. Because she is evil that way. (If you're reading this, I know where you keep your precious novels). Wear time could easily be 6 hours!

#723 is a brown-based red. It has a vintage feel to it and I love that. It's one of those colors that instantly perks up your entire face. It's great for those days you don't feel like wearing eye makeup. You could even skip foundation, it's that good!

Sweet Touch is easily available anywhere makeup is sold and their own store Makeup City. I'm totally getting more colors!

Keep smiling!
Love,

2016 is the year of self-discovery

pakistani blog karachi beach, self-discovery
Every day I stop and think how much my life has changed this year. Doing what you love has such a great impact on you. 5 years I've spent with no idea what to do. No reason to get up in the morning. I've had anxiety and I still do. But in just these 6 months life has taken a 360 turn on me.

mango leather ankle boots (Shop link)
Boots in summer? Yes, I wear them all year round 'cause I love the Euro chic vibes they give off! These are darker than my Next tan colored boots and the heel is wider so they are definitely gonna hurt me less. This color goes with all the outfits, trust me on this. Plus, they are like half off! PKR 4000 down from PKR 8000. Isn't that an amazing deal?

Outfitters has really pretty belts out right now. I have actually already bought this baby. Belts are great with really loose, long tops. Looks very chic. This is worth PKR 690 on sale.

ethnic.pk tassled scarf (Shop link)
Ethnic seriously has a beautiful and unique collection of scarves. And you know me, always ready to buy a unique scarf. It's a neutral toned scarf with multi colored tassles (oh how much I love tassles) so this is really going to match with a lot of your outfits; blues, green, etc, and also with a multi colored, full-on printed kind of top too! This is available for PKR 890.

zeen spring woven box clutch (Shop link)
Aren't these the cutest clutches you have ever seen? These are covered with a lacey, woven fabric covered. Even though I've never liked box clutches before, but now I see it. I'm in love! My favorite part is that you could carry them during day and at night time both. These are affordable too (as affordable a good quality clutch gets), priced at PKR 2490.

My outfits are NEVER complete without a gorgeous, metallic, faux antique ring. And here's a little secret, Nishaat carries my type of rings and that too at really affordable prices. The gothic green one is PKR 450 and the mint is PKR 350 only! Can you baa-lieve it?!

claire's mint wayfarer sunglasses (Shop link)
Yes, I'm 23 and I shop from Claire's. Not completely sure if these would be available here though 'cause I haven't been to the mall since Ramadan started. I think they should make a Claire's Pakistan website now.

If you all need some outfit ideas, you can check out my instagram. It's regulary updated with my crazy outfits. I might be posting a summer look book too soon.

Eat healthy!
