This weekend I’m going to be doing two things: 1) Turning 32, YAY. 2) Packing for Lahore and N for Karachi. I’m quite nervous about the Lahore cold which the mother tells me is being quite brutal. And god knows how I hate the cold. ANYWAY, was sent a bunch of stuff from Arcancil Paris a while ago (I showed it all on Snapchat btw) and finally gave some of the things a go this week. Immediately loved the three I tried out – the eyeliner, the mascara and the lip liner (that I used as lipstick). You know how most colored eyeliners make you feel like you need to industrial-level bleach your face because it looks all weird and messy? This color did not do that at all (Star Liner in 504 Lagon Turquoise) and lasted the whole day. The mascara made my lashes SUPER long (the ones who saw it on Snapchat, tell me it’s true right?). It was a tad clumpy but I loved it regardless (Volume Ooh Lala! in 001 Noir). And the lipliner gave the most gorgeous nude color (Lip Liner in 310 Bois de Rose). I particularly loved it because I wear such colors very rarely so it was a good change plus didn’t make me look like death (which most nude shades do) so it was a win. You can buy Arancil in Dubai at Wojooh in Dubai Mall.
Best friend, Sumika was over in Dubai for work for a couple of days. I do long distance with all my best friends and it’s entirely something else to get to see them so frequently. We just had such a great time in Thailand earlier this month but I was still so excited to meet her again. We spent a few hours at the mall for some stuff she needed and I ended up getting these shoes and sunglasses from Aldo (for so cheap because the shopping festival is on). Came home, had Hot n Spicy, threw N in the guest room and talked into the night. She left the next morning but it was the best 12 hours.
Something new I’ve been wanting to try out since quite some time: having a candle around the house. We have a tiny space so every night after dinner it smells a bit like food so I wanted to get rid of that. Bought this one from Bath & Body Works and while I don’t laahhvv it, it was a decent purchase. If you have a good candle recommendation that smells great and lasts forever, please tell me.
Got the prettiest clutch in the mail a few days ago. It’s SO gorgeous, you guys. I absolutely love it. It’s by a brand called Enigma (see here) and is entirely constructed out of metal and a hundred percent handmade. You can order it through their Facebook page, if you love it just as much. They’ve got bags and briefcases too.
Have a great weekend, guys.
