German Food Festival at Asia Live, Avari Towers
This is the month of Oktoberfest, which if you do not know is a grand German festival dating back to 19th century. It was first held in the celebration of the royal wedding when Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese and has since become an important Bavarian tradition. Now you know, Asia Live at Avari Towers is popular for promoting cuisine from all across the globe so this time around the restaurant is holding a week-long German Food Festival. It has already started and I was lucky to be there on the night of the opening which was 21st October. If you follow me on my social media, especially Instagram, you would know how exciting and splendacious my dinner was. The festival will last until 28th October and you can enjoy a buffet meal too, from 7:30 to 11:30 PM for 2150 PKR (exclusive of tax).

A lot of us are now anticipating sweater weather, and while I am more of a summer child because I hate how reptilian my already dry skin gets during winters, I love fall fashion. It still wouldn't be cold enough to turn off the air-conditioning for another couple of months in Karachi, yet this squirrel souled babe has started putting together warm clothing pieces to be ready for the season. I hope you remember my Zaful Stand Neck Embroidered Loose Fit Shirt* as I was on their website again and this time around I have picked quite a few things. My haul includes two winter clothing apparels, which you will be seeing in my future posts, along with four accessories one of which is my pair of Metal Bar Golden Frame Pilot Sunglasses*

Top 5 Easily Available Budget Buys in Pakistan

Top 5 Easily Available Budget Buys in Pakistan
So many new makeup brands launch every year but in Pakistan, we do not even have half of the older ones like NYX and MUA available in stores. Not everybody is up for online shopping since especially with makeup products, we like to swatch and see how products really feel and look like. Even if there are a few stores which now stock drugtore as well as high-end products, the prices are ridiculously high for both the categories. So, Asumbal from http://beautybyasumbal.blogspot.com/ suggested that we share our best budget buys when it comes to makeup products that are easily available in the local market.

Do keep in mind that makeup products are mostly sold for higher prices than actual ones in Pakistan so we had to set a budget of maximum 1500 PKR for each of our picks. This might still seem a lot to some of you guys but most of our choices cost much less. I know you guys also request me to buy more from the local brands and I try but I steer clear for the most part from buying incredibly cheap makeup products because I do have sensitive skin and brands like Medora have a high lead content in their products which is alarming. Therefore, I would not advise anyone to get them. I am by no means claiming that the ones listed below are perfect but I personally have not experienced any adverse reactions.

Kylie Posie K Lip Kit Review and Swatches
Kylie Jenner and her lips were the talk of town for a hot minute over the past couple of years and she made the wisest business move by launching Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits before the craze could lose its charm. When I first came across the lip kits, I wasn't too much of a fan and I'll tell you why. Firstly, I don't give into hype that easily so you will never catch me running out the door when something new launches. Secondly, none of the shades (Koko K, Candy K, Dolce K) really got my fancy as they seemed too light and bland for my taste. Thirdly, I initially found the liquid dripping print on the bottle along with her signature kind of childish. Above all, the price tag freaked me out because even though these retail for $29, which I thought was lesser than what I would expect from a multi-millionaire celebrity, the local sellers were demanding nothing less than $55 to $80 in Pakistani rupees (PKR).

MyGerrys Haul and Shopping Experience

I know a lot of us are not much of a fan of online shopping because we like to physically see and feel what we are buying, however, online businesses have had a boom over the span of past few years and it is not only a lot more convenient at times to just *click* *click* *click* and shop, but also unavoidable when foreign brands are more readily available online than in stores. So, I was recently introduced to MyGerrys (mygerrys.com) which is an online portal that sells a wide range of products like clothes, cosmetics, gadgets, appliances, camera accessories, homeware, garden and outdoor goods, etc.

I ended up picking three random bits for myself which include E.L.F Small Stipple Brush, Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in Chocolate Truffle and The Body Shop Facial Brush With Lid. Now, I have only been using these for a few days so I can give you an opinion based on the first impression I have had so far.
