Flagship Store Launch of Khaadi, Emporium Mall.

Hi Everyone! Hope you are doing well!

This post is going to interest the ladies especially who love trendy ethnic clothes.

My sister, Bushra and I went to the launch of Khaadi's Flagship outlet at Emporium Mall yesterday that is on the 24th of February, 2016. Saying that the outlet is beautiful would be an understatement.




We have always been a Khaadi customer from the get-go and it's amazing to see how this brand has flourished right infront of our eyes. From the very beginning, khaadi set their designs apart from what the rest of the clothing brands were making be it stitched or unstiched. With so many designs and beautiful color combinations it's not difficult to imagine anyone leaving  Khaadi without buying anything. I am sure you all understand what I am talking about.




From Karachi to Lahore, we have visited almost all the outlets of Khaadi. Must tell you, they go all out with the decor. From ceilings to walls, this brand thinks things through. The outlet at Emporium Mall is spread at two levels with Pret wear, jewellery, menswear, homedecor on the second floor and unstitched material on the first floor.

  


Now about their Spring Summer 2017 collection. Very vibrant, ethnic, floral and pretty on the eyes is what this collection is all about. We liked the Satin range which has 5 pieces with their tissue silk dupattas.

Next the new accessory collection they have introduced is beautiful! A thumbs up from us! And last but not the least the architecture of this flagship store. Amazed by the way every nook and cranny has been decorated.

   


Simply beautiful. You have to check it out for yourself.

Much love,

Team B.Sheikh.

Official Launch of Tuscany Courtyard, Lahore

Hey Everyone! Hope your week is going fab. Just wanted to share our experience of an exclusive launch of a restaurant here in Lahore. 

So lets start from the beginning. My sister, Bushra and I were invited by Qasim Yar of QYT EVENTS at the official launch of Tuscany Courtyard, located at MM Alam Road  on the 3rd of February, 2017. Digital PR handled by Rezz PR and Events.



From location to food tasting to ambiance, everything was on point.  I must say, QYT Events  did a wonderful job with the decor! From floral archways to potted flower arrangements to shimmery backdrops to candle stands, the whole restaurant was set to impress everyone.



There was food display from strawberry platters to croissants to mini burgers to thin crusted mini pizzas to sandwiches not to forget the constant service of mint margaritas/pinacoladas and chocolate desserts which we missed. With so many people around and constant food service, cleanliness of the restaurant was impeccable.






We got a chance to speak to Nabiha, wife of Khurram Khan( owner). she was very passionate about her team. they took their inspiration from Tuscany, Italy which clearly translates in the architecture and of course the name speaks for itself.

Physiogel 14 Day Challenge.

Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well!

 I have always been into skin care, testing out the products knowing about them
reading about ingredients product manufacturing directions for use expired. Like in depth.

Day 1 of challenge









  So when Talking Point PR Company sent me the Physiogel Care Basket, I was very excited since I had used their body lotion. I have an oily skin prone to breakouts and yes I tend to over scrub leading to dry  and tight skin. Since it is a GSK stiefel product range I was happily on board with the 14 day challenge. To be honest I have always appreciated Physicians Formula as it has always


suited my skin.



 Slowly and gradually I started seeing the change in my skin as it was less flaky, less dry patches, eliminating the redness. My personal favorites are the Night Cream, Daily Moisture and the Light Day Cream has been my Holy Grail before I apply my makeup.
Why? Because it provides
1.SPF
2.My Foundation goes on smoothly
3.Less dry patches are visible.

I suggest, you my ladies check Physiogel out. Hope you all enjoyed my blog post. Much love.

Hi Tea At The Lahore Social with Masarrat Misbah.

Hello guys!:) Hope all of you are doing well!

Me and Warda were invited by the Depilex group and Masarrat Misbah on 16th Feb 2017 at the Lahore Social.

B.Sheikh with Masarrat Misbah
Sister Duo
                 
The topic of discussion was illegal creams and lotions being sold openly in markets.

She showed us a documentary by a reputed channel which discussed in great detail the health hazards caused by illegal ingredients.

Bloggers in discussion
Delicious Finger Food at Lahore Social

She also briefed us about the steroids, mercury, and other harmful chemicals being openly mixed and dispensed promising a lighter, brighter, fairer complexion.

Sad to say this but the target market is girls from schools, colleges, universities and single girls who have fallen prey to such schemes.

These products are being advertised in such a way that without their usage, a girl will not get married nor have a successful career.

 She shared her experiences working with burn victims and acid attack survivors and what these women particularly go through especially when they are suggested to use Fairness Creams. Being misled by the society they started using this kitchen cocktails made in highly and hygienic conditions, not being approved or supervised by the authorities.




All in all, I would suggest to kindly read the product information, check the ingredients, where the product is being manufactured, expiry and authentic certification because not only it's going to affect you in the long-term but the harmful effects would be transferred to the future generations as well.

Hope this article was as enlightening as the session was for us.

Food Tasting at Urban Cafe-Yoglicious


Hi everyone. Hope your week is going is fabulous. So today we are going to share our experience regarding a food tasting. My sister and I were invited by Kluchit Magazine and Cybus Digi for the official food tasting at Urban Cafe- Yoglicious on the 20th of January, 2016.


Our first thought about the cafe was, *look at all the space*. The place boasted 3 halls. First one was a sit-in  with sofa settings at both the ends and ceiling hangings of clippings from Hollywood movies.The middle hall had a very spacious feel to it with white wood carvings on the ceiling and wall to wall sofas at one end with tables and chairs. Again a foray of pictures lined the textured wall. 
Team B.Sheikh with Rabia Zia (Owner)



The last hall was about food. Yes you read that RIGHT. There were counters laden with Baked items, from brownies to freshly baked loaves of bread to a mouthwatering display of cakes and cupcakes.

           
                   


Now about the event itself. It was a very exclusive Food Tasting Meetup. The owner Rabia Zia was very forthcoming in answering our questions. You'll be surprised to read that Rabia is an Investment Banker. Formerly worked at J.P Morgan and has an experience of 21 years in the financial world. Her passion for restaurant and cafe culture led her to Lahore, Pakistan. Rabia has really invested her heart and soul in Urban Cafe-Yoglicious. Her aesthetic sense is what sets the place apart. You will see frames of Bob Marley, Micheal Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Julia Roberts from Notting Hill on the walls. 


Now about the food. My sister ordered Alfredo Pasta and I ordered Thai Chilli Chicken. Both the dishes had adequate portion size and yes they both tasted delicious. Now comes the Dessert. We were served Sticky Toffee Pudding with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. One bite had has going back to our childhood. The butter scotch taste had a very nostalgic feel. Go on empty stomach to try this dessert because it is heavy and yummy to the last bite.

So yes all in all, it was a lovely evening with delicious food and good company. If you all haven't tried it, then do checkout the place.
