Better late than never, whatcha girls say? Last time I was determined to post the November favorites by 30th!  Well its 14th today, my bad. But as you can see I have been going around a lot and people aren't the patient ones usually, hope you guys get my point.  There has to be a rant post coming up soon as there came times when i was seriously pissed at people's attitude. I mean seriously, they want an event report before the event itself happens, wierdos :-/

That being vented out, lets move to the little list of monthly favorites that I put up.  Usually people tell me why do I stick to just 5 or 6 products in a favorites post. Ummm its supposed to FAVORITES post, so basically I short list the things that worked best in the last month(s)  instead of putting up everything I used.  

So lets start shooting! 

1.CLEAN & CLEAR Essentials Moisturizer :

Whoever introduced me to this, I am forever indebted to you my angel!  I have pretty bad dry patched skin in winters that actually flakes off and stings when I put anything on it.  And major dilemma, if I moisturize it breaks out.  I have been using this moisturizer for a while now and trust me not even a single pimple showed its face.  The consistency is runny and not at all greasy.  It absorbs completely, leaving the skin soft and moisturized without greasiness.  Thumbs up to this baby! 

2.Maybelline Baby Lips Dr.Rescue - Coral Crave:

I have dry chapped lips throughout the year which make me look like a dehydration patient, so i need to keep lip balm at hand all the time.  Maybelline Baby Lips has been in my stash for a while but i lt was okay-ish, if you know what I mean. I saw this one on a facebook page and just added to my cart on a whim. But this one is super moisturizing, with added menthol that gives that tickling sensation that's absolutely soothing.  I apply it all day long and my lips have been behaving really well lately.  Highly recommended. 

3. The Balm Mary Lou Manizer :

This baby needs no introduction. This cult favorite made its way into my stash quite late but still i am glad I took a leap of faith and got it. Its heavily pigmented and a little goes long long loooong way, infact one dip goes for whole face!  If you are into the Strobing craze I say go for it!  Even if you like subtle highlighting, just keep a light hand and give it a go, just for once.  

4. L. A Girl Pro Conceal Concealer - Classic Ivory:

This one is undoubtedly a wonder in a tube!  Just press a little and dab around and voila!  All CONCEALED. I basically use this as my under eye brightener, rather than concealer but its subtle peach undertone hides my little bit of dark circles just perfectly while highlighting.  Just top off with some loose powder and enjoy a crease free under eye concealer! 

5. NYX Jumbo Pencil - Milk:

Just 3 words GO GET IT!  If you want your eye makeup to POP, i say don't even waste a nano second. This one makes the perfect eye base and helps showing true colors of your makeup. Plus its formula is just perfect that doesn't crease and keeps the makeup intact for longer periods.  Plus if you like white waterline, this has the soft tip that doesn't poke into the eye, plus the creamy formula makes its easy just to apply in one stroke. 

6. Masarrat Misbah Makeup Lip Varnish-Uptown Girl :

MM Makeup has been the talk of the town for a while now and there seems to be no stopping them for all the amazing stuff they brought to pakistani makeup industry.  The lip varnish made to my favorites list a bit late because of its really moisturizing formula. I have been into the matte lips bandwagon lately, lately but in winters, I like to switch between the formulas, and then lip varnish turns out to be my favorite.  With that yummy vanilla fragrance and rich moisturizing, I skip my lip balm before its use.  Even after wearing off, you can still feel that your lips have been left really moisturized. Get it for the winters at least!! 

I hope you guys like the post.  Do give them a try and let me know if they worked for you as well as they work for me. If you already have used any of the above do let me know even then too.

Stay blessed

"SAVE A CHILD A MINUTE" campaign - An Event with a Cause

4th event report in a row, you may call me more of a reporter than a blogger. Even though I was determined to not to do an event report, this one was just have to be done because this time its an event report with a cause.  A total eye opener and mind boggling event named as "SAVE A CHILD A MINUTE " that I got to cover over social media on 8th December, 2015, was something related to what I am (p.s I am a doctor FYI)  and what is close to my heart (besides makeup).

About the Event:

On 8th December, 2015, Reckitt Benckiser & Plan International Pakistan arranged a launching ceremony of the" SAVE A CHILD A MINUTE" campaign. The event was scheduled in  none other than SERENA HOTEL, Islamabad with the perfect ambiance according to the event. 

Being one of its kind Project, many worthy speakers were there to elaborate the gravity of the subject that is ignored in our society.  Diarrhea being one of the major cause of deaths in our unfortunately illiterate society needs to be addressed with utmost seriousness, for loosing 53000 children to this silent monster isn't something minor.  

To further the working of the project and highlighting the major tasks under hand the speakers left 
no stone unturned. Here are the extracts of few speakers at the event.

Representatives from the Government & Planning and Development commision were present at   the launch event of the campaign.During the speech they stated:“This is a brilliant and innovative initiative towards eradicating diarrhoea and a stepping stone for public-private partnerships to improve health conditions and empower local communities. The best part is that it is in line with the government vision project 2025. Currently the government is collaborating for the pilot, it can further look into jointly upscaling the campaign at a national level.”

Rashid Javed, Country Director Plan International Pakistan with his remarks:“Based on our experience of Sanitation Marketing we are now moving forward to test a new model of women entrepreneurship. The model is based on helping communities to adopt improved hygiene behaviours and sustaining them through a sustainable supply chain. Establishing a system of supply and demand and linking it with women entrepreneur/Women hygienist is an idea which will ultimately help these women to earn their livelihood while helping their communities to promote health by adopting improved behaviours for water, sanitation and hygiene.”

Shahzeb Mehmood, CEO RB Pakistan highlighted the key points of the project, during his speech he stated: “RB has always aimed to provide healthier homes and happier lives through trusted brands such as Dettol, Mortein, Harpic and many more. This global initiative simultaneously being run in Pakistan, Nigeria and India seeks to eradicate diarrhoea and improve general health and hygiene of the low-income consumers by habit change. Through global research and technology, RB designed a low-cost antibacterial soap under the Dettol brand, a complete new formulation specifically for this purpose. The aim is to interactively educate consumers about health and hygiene, provide them with affordable health and sanitary solutions (by RB and other private companies such as Shan Foods, Searle, Peak Freans and Santex) and in the process empower local women who will sell these products door-to-door.

Plan & Goals:

For the next 6 months, in the pilot phase of the campaign, RB and Plan will cover 600 households in Dhori, a village in Sargodha. Based on the learnings from this pilot, “Save a Child a Minute” will then be scaled up nationally by RB and Plan in close coordination with the federal and provincial government to support the Government’s Vision 2025 project.

About RB Pakistan:

RB is the world’s leading consumer health and hygiene company with operations in over 60 countries. With a purpose of delivering innovative solutions for healthier lives and happier homes. Today it is the global No. 1 or No. 2 in the majority of its fast-growing categories, driven exceptional innovation. Its health, hygiene and home portfolio is led by global Powerbrands including Dettol, Mortein, Harpic, Veet, Gaviscon and many more. RB is set to redefine the world of consumer health and hygiene with exceptional employees committing to highest quality standards.

Such initiatives are truly commendable as they lead to a better health conditions and a healthy nation. A nation can only survive through tough times when its youth is healthy and competitive. The SAVE A CHILD A MINUTE is one of its kind campaign ,which is based on the fact that educating the mothers is the sole way to fight the demon of diarrheal disease in neonates and children. 

Hope you guys find this event report enlightening as well as see it as a ray of hope for our people who will be benefited from such an amazing task.

Stay Blessed

TAMASHA premiere at Luxus Grand Cinema - An affair to remember

Watching movies in cinema has been fun and exciting for everything is so amplified there, one can just drift away from reality and have some fantasy time. But still the environment and ambiance of the cinema plays a major role in the experinece. Recently,  I attended the red carpet premiere of a Bollywood flick TAMASHA, hosted by Troika Events &  PR in lahore. Here is a little account on the star studded affair and yes my take on the cinema as well.

The Event:

  On Thusday 26 November 2015 the premiere of a Bollywood movie TAMASHA, with a promising cast featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone was organized at the Luxus Grand Cinema Lahore by team Troika Events and PR . The premiere was a well attended affair where models, actors and socialites were spotted.

About the Cinema:

Luxus Grand Cinemas started its operations in January 2015 and is the only cinema in Lahore which is located inside a hotel. The three screen multiplex has digital 3D screens, with a state of the art 7.1 surround sound system and is situated in Luxus Grand Hotel.

Previously, the cinema did not receive much appreciation, so some major renovations were done and with the Premiere of the movie TAMASHA, It was sort of a Relaunch as well.
To make a movie memorable, a comfortable experience is necessary. With a well lit lobby and couterous staff to a generously spacious seating and well maintained temprature (yes, making kt super cold or super warm pisses me off Big time), it was a great cinema where you can have some fun with you family and friends.

Overall the experience was amazing. 
Would I be going back to that cinema for movies next time you may ask.  Well its a definite YES from my side. For that luxury experience, I might even be choosing it most of the time.

About the movie:

 I have always been a fan of Ranbir Kapoor as an actor who delivers whatever role he is required of. TAMASHA revolves around a young man living in the world of stories and himself is a great story teller, but as per society norms he is required to play the role of an average product manager. While Deepika comes in as someone who knows what he really is and makes him realize too.  The story is old but the execution and unfolding of the story with some beautiful locations and different music makes it a delight to watch.  So if you are looking forward to see some different movie this weekend, this is the one for you.

Lastly, Thank you Team Troika Events and PR, especially Momin Ali for having me at the event.
