Veet introduces Veet Academy!

Hello people! Hope all of you are doing great!
I am sure by now all of you are well aware about the brand Veet. It  has become a household name in Pakistan. They are doing so much for young women out there and I thought why not share it with all of you !

Sarwat Gilani-Mentor Veet Academy

Veet is known to come up with  feminine campaigns and programs. The brand understands that beautiful does not stem from physical attributes but the all rounded personality of an individual. Beauty is what’s inside, reflected outside in the best of ways. Therefore, Veet recently introduced its grooming institute called Veet Academy that enables girls to cherish their femininity and helps transform them into
successful, passionate and confident individuals, through online courses.

These courses revolve around five Veet values led by five celebrity experts. The celebrities, who are
living examples of each of these values include, Sarwat Gilani for Confidence Building, Aamina Sheikh for Intelligent Behaviour, Hareem Farooq for Health and Fitness, Sidra Iqbal for Effective Communication and Masarrat Misbah for Charm

The poised Sarwat Gilani, begins the Veet Academy modules by conducting a thorough course on confidence building through digital videos. Through the course, we also discover Gilani’s other passion; her love for Interior Designing. Linking confidence building to interior designing is an interesting way to explain about confidence building
Sarwat therefore believes that colors, patterns and other elements around you can also affect your mood and boost your confidence. Well that is quite true. When you do something that interests you, not only does one feel content but one is also productive where work is concerned.

The course also lays emphasis upon the sphere of self-worth that enables the audience to understand
the importance of discovering self-awareness and self-acceptance. Through the online program, Sarwat is inspiring young women by teaching them how to embrace their lives and making the most of each situation. Hence, the course is a blend of her wisdom and experiences, being imparted towards a younger audience with the hope that it will mould them into a confident being. 

The underlining message is that once you learn to love and accept yourself, you’re headed towards the right track.

To know the rest of her tips, take the course! Watch all the videos at:

Until next time,
Much love,

MIY Interiors showcases Furniture at Nishat Hotel, Lahore.

Hello people! Hope all of you are doing well!This blog post us going to be a bit different. If you are a fan of interior decoration, then keep on reading!:)
Arsalan Saeed of Saeed Anwar Banarsis and Bushra Sheikh

I was invited by Mishalle Hira of Dext Events and PR to Nishat Hotel where Mr. Malik Imran Yunus, the man behind the exhibit of furniture was show casing some statement pieces.

As you can see in the pictures, the furniture caters to a very modern niche. The collection gave very urban chic vibes and at display were picture frames, bed sets, trolleys, clocks, coffee table, dining table, sofa sets and much more.

While in conversation with Mr. Malik, I asked him about his inspiration behind the exhibit. He replied by saying that his wife; who was in Dubai, had shown interest in home decor. All of the pieces were hand picked from Europe and Dubai. This was their first exhibit and their brand is only 3 months young.

Personally I liked the mirrors. Not much of an extravagant spender, I felt that it was slightly expensive.

Make sure you follow them on all their socials.

Until next time,
Team Bsheikh signing off.
Much love.

Molty Foam presents Pakistan Wedding Show

Aloha everyone! All set and ready for the week? We sure are! Today we'll share our amazing experience at one of the most successful event held in Lahore at the Expo Center.
Yes we are talking about the Pakistan Wedding Show (PWS)a two-day Molty Foam sponsored event held on the 5th and 6th of August. The PR was handled by Cartel PR. 

We felt that it was a great initiative to bring numerous brands to boost number 1 the Local Businesses and number 2 a convenient platform for families looking for the right caterer, event management company, bridal/groom-wear brands, Jewelry designers, Makeup and salon options, etc. 

Top brands like Republic, ChenOne, HSY, Black Orange, Zarmisha Dar, Meraki, Zara Shahjahan, Reema Ahsan, The Videographers, Whimsical Parties and Interwood along with famous make-up artists such as the Depilex Salon, showcased their skills and talent to the people at their respective booths.

The Pakistan Wedding Show was inaugurated by Abdul Basit (Lahore Chamber of Commerce), who pointed out that, “There was a void in the wedding market and Pakistan Wedding Show in collaboration with LCCI will help fill this void. The event is in line with our vision and plans to meet the needs of ourever-thriving community.”, and Shahzad Malik, (CEO Molty Foam) through a ribbon cutting Opening Ceremony.

Bushra and I had the most fun when we visited first and the foremost Masarrat Misbah's Makeup booth where literally there was no place to walk due to the crowd present to meet and see the most famous name known to every household,the one and only Masarrat Misbah. From product testing to free consultation to bridal bookings, it was all being offered right there and then. And when it comes to makeup  who wouldn't have fun!!

Next, us sisters visited W.INC Event's booth. The general theme was set in gold hues and the kiosk was tastefully decorated with white flowers and the smell of Jasmine-Motia  was like a blanket  of fresh air. What we liked about Sahar Shaikh and Nadia Khan of W.INC events was that these girls were very easy to talk to especially when it came discussing clients, their preferences, clients on a budget and that they made sure to accommodate families with the best of packages.

Next it was the Crimson Events booth where once again a great deal about the wedding packages, formal occasions setups, catering , minimum to maximum capacity of guests they catered to was briefed. Those of you who have shaadis coming up, PWS was the place to be. So many options to choose from!
Last but not the least we stopped by Project Rich's booth by Madiha Saail Khan. She creates these beautiful statement pieces of jewelry, very on-point and in-trend. We couldn't resist and bought ourselves two pieces from her collection and yes we love wearing them!

Hey there beautiful people! Hope you are all doing great! As you all must have read my previous articles on Physiogel, by now you all  know how much we like their products. Not only are they good for your skin but they cater to all skin types and are easy to use.

I did a campaign couple of months back with Physiogel and like always their creams and lotions turned out great for my skin. I am an avid supporter of good skin care system and Physiogel provides that. 
Aisha Khan-Brand Ambassador Physiogel

On the 10th of August, a media meet and greet was held in Karachi for the launch of Digital Campaign by Physiogel at Cafe Aylanto attended by  Aisha Khan, Brand Ambassador for Physiogel. The Campaign titled *Love Your Skin* befits Aisha Khan as I have seen her skin up close and personal and I can vouch for it that she has the most flawless, smooth and illuminated skin. No wonder she has been chosen as the brand ambassador for Physiogel Digital Campaign!

The red carpet was hosted by Dr. Muzna Ibrahim.  Ayeza Sumsam, Brand Manager GSK Consumer elaborated on their choice of celebrity ambassador, the reason being that for their brand its very important to associate with a  personality and name who believes in the message and what the brand stands for. Hence Aisha Khan was the perfect choice for the brand who you all can see in the Digital Campaign looking radiant with her flawlessly glowing skin.
Alishba Yousuf

GSKCH Marketing Director, Sadia Nasiruddin further elaborated that through this digital marketing, they want to involve the consumer by communicating with them, boost their self esteem and encourage them to feel confident in their skin and to love it. 
Adnan Malik

The evening was pretty start studded, attended namely by Adnan Malik, Sadaf Kanwal, Alishba Yousuf who participated in the skin care activities and were very interactive with crowd sharing their views and opinions.
