Fridays

Fridays

You guys, N and I have something exciting planned for the end of this month and I can’t wait to tell you about it in a few days. This weekend I have seriously ambitious plans to try making dessert, eat a questionable amount of gummy bears, and get started on The Body Book by Cameron Diaz (I bought this two years ago, lulz).  I opened the book at random to get a shot of it and this was one of the highlights on that page: “Somewhere along the way, we started to believe that that the less we had to use our bodies to labor, and the more leisure we had in our lives, the better our lives were.” I have a feeling this is going to be a good read.

Cookies from Tehzeeb in Islamabad that my cousin brought over this week on his trip to Dubai.

Color coordinating this weekend like a ninja. Shoes are from Lynes in the Outlet Mall and the bag is from Mockingjay Accessories (also wearing here). Both old.

Broke into a new perfume this week. I only wear men’s perfumes, that too the ones N gets at work, so pretty much all I know about them is nothing. Yup.

Got all these bottles of raw, unadulterated, unheated and preservative free honey from Karachi a few days ago and I’m literally dancing (no, really). Just in case you missed it, I’ve become a giant fan (borderline groupie) of natural products, particularly honey so this shipment is almost like receiving a bag of hundreds of overexcited, very happy puppies (almost). The ones I got were: Acacia, Sidr, Ajwain, Citrus and Neem. It tastes delicious and you can get yourself some by going to Masna un Nehel‘s Facebook page and asking them to deliver it to you. Don’t buy the regular, typical presents – gift a jar of such pure honey to someone you love (and to me, if you feel like it). Prices for the 140g jars range between PKR 90 – 280. Uff, please gift this to someone (I feel so much about this as you can see).

Have a great weekend, guys.

      Hi anon, I think you won't like my answer 😛 I have read the first book but I thought it was okay, I'm not into fantasy etc so…. (sorry)

  2. OMG fun fun fun Fridays post. I have a printed bag from mockingjay accessories that I need ways to style cuz print on print is just meh.

    Totes agree about the natural honey. Ever since I ve kinda gone on clean eating I notice such a huge difference in my health and how I feel overall.

      Hi Pamela. They have a lot of info on their Facebook page about how it's made. So I trust what they're advertising, like any other brand. Other than that, the taste is great and is incredibly different from store bought honey so I guess that's also a sure sign 🙂

  4. I don't seem to understand your new found love for natural products and healthy eating when all you eat on a regular basis is processed junk food and take out. (Again all sourced from your snaps) I don't think one glass of honey and ginger tea is going to balance all that other unhealthy stuff that you eat. Just saying!!

      I can't even begin to get pissed at all your hate comments the last few weeks cos your clicks make me money, lulz. Anyway, to respond to your comment, I see myself as being on a journey – I may be able to fix everything about my diet or I may never get there – eitherways I'm cool with it and trying to do whatever I can. I don't ask anyone to switch to all natural, I just share what I'm doing – the natural as well as the junk. But if you are following along on Snap, then you perhaps missed that I've cut out 50% of the junk food that I earlier used to have. xx

  5. This is the first time ever i am visiting your blog and the photos are brilliant! What camera do you use? And i enjoy your snapchat stores, You're awesome!

  6. Love Friday posts.. Reading on a Sunday because… Well I'm just lazy!
    But why men's cologne? Why why why? You know if you start using women perfumes and write about them, that'll be just AWESOME! I'm always in search for nice unique scents..
