The Body Shop British Rose Exfoliating Gel Body Scrub

I am still not quite over the amazing releases that The Body Shop came out with last year. There are one too many ranges that caught my eye but I only managed to grab a few and this exfoliating gel body scrub was one of them from the British Rose range. I am really into skincare be it for face or body so I wanted to try an actual body scrub rather than using a facial one from Freeman or St. Ives on my body as I previously was.

I have resorted to a simpler skincare routine now but I bought this scrub last year for Mother's Day. Honestly, at that time I was still pretty much a gritty scrub gal and this, on the other hand, is a lot gentler because of the gel formulation. So I thought this would be better for my mom as she has pretty soft skin already. Besides, I had never seen a gel body scrub before and it looked so pretty and smelled so lovely that I could not resist getting it. Now, perks of living with your parents include sharing products so yes, I have been using this too.

As the saying goes, 'the eyes are the window to your soul', I couldn't agree more. I am somebody who is not always patient to blend 45 eyeshadows onto my lids and I rather prefer a flicked eyeliner with loads of mascara and even false lashes. I believe if you play up your eyes well it is a really great way of drawing away attention from blemishes or lesser celebrated features. However, there are days when you do not have time for any of that and unless you are blessed with a beautiful set of full lashes naturally, you would want to take better care of them.

Based On Trends Winter Wishlist For 2017

Based On Trends Winter Wishlist For 2017
Based On Trends Winter Wishlist For 2017 
It is finally getting chilly in Karachi and this morning I felt that it is about time I should go into hibernation. Too bad that is not an option, however, layering fashionable winter clothing is a great way of not only warming up the body but soul too, right? Towards the end of 2016, I came across a lot of cute winter outfits and they are surely stylish enough to transition with us into 2017. So my wishlist is based on everything that I find trendy this season. It mostly comprises of jackets and cardigans but I have included some accessories too. Fashion this year will continue to be a revival of outfits from decades ago but the best part is you can carry them as they are or add a funky twist. This is the age where everything is accepted and appreciated.

Menu Tasting at House of Wings

House of Wings
What better way to start the new year than talking about food? Yesterday I had the opportunity of trying out the menu at House of Wings and boy, it surpassed my expectations as there was much more to savour than wings. House of Wings is a new double story restaurant in Khadda Market that has a total capacity of 44 seats and offers an extensive variety of American cuisine. So if you are looking for something more than just burgers and fries, you are in for a treat.

First, we were given a tour around the restaurant and while it is not the most spacious one out there, it is still cosy and properly facilitated. The kitchen again is tight but open and squeaky clean. I like the current black and yellow theme they have going on with the cushions but since the place has not yet had an official opening, there are still things that they plan on switching up. Nonetheless, the overall ambiance is fit for fine dining and I am glad it is not just another cafe. Also, only other than most of the vegetables, chicken and bread, everything else is imported to maintain the authenticity of each dish.

12th Karachi International Book Fair Haul

12th Karachi International Book Fair Haul
12th Karachi International Book Fair Haul
There are just so many things that I love about December! Don't you? I mean holidays, weddings and of course the Karachi International Book Fair (KIBF), where I get to load my cart with books, that too at discounted prices. I have attended all of the KIBFs ever till date and I hope this remains the case every year in the future as well. Even though I have so many unread books from my previous trips, mainly because university has kept me quite busy for the past four years, hopefully now that I am graduating, things will change.

Since the year I started blogging, I have been sharing my KIBF hauls, so of course, I am sharing what I bought this time too. First three halls are jam-packed with book stalls at Expo when the book fair hits Karachi, however, I mostly shop at Paramount and Liberty Books. In fact, this year these are the only two that I got all my books from. I have not bought as much as I have in the past because like I said I already have a lot left to read from previous fairs, and also most of the books that I wanted were out of stock.
