Friday Floral Fever!!

Doesn't she look gorgeous??!

This sari very much reminds me of what you see auntys typically wearing on a daily basis in India. Its so breezy and pretty! Could have easily gone wrong and not an easy sari to pull off but our girl Kajol has done well!

Lippy Longtime

I bought a new lip gloss on Monday after reading great reviews of the new YSL long lasting gloss. I have so many lipsticks that I had banned myself from purchasing anymore but I don't know why I was just drawn to the YSL counter with a resolve to BUY!

...and as cynical as I was I was eventually amazed by its staying power - gloss often doesn't remain glossy for long - it rubs off pretty quick but this one stayed on all day and managed to pass the lunch test too! Okay so by the end of the day it wasn't massively glossy but the colour was very much there and still looked  'alive' rather than just a faint stain.

I'm used to highly pigmented Nars and Mac and its been a while since I bought anything from YSL so was surprised at the lack of pigmentation in comparison to what I'm used to but two coats did the trick! I went out of my usual comfort zone and bought a coral/orange shade (No. 6)- its quite bright which is fine but I've never really worn orange lips before so it was a nice change too!




On a side note does anyone else hate wearing lip gloss on windy days?? my hair tends to smear the gloss all over my face - *Not* a good look...

Mina Hasan

Hello my lovely readers!

Yes I have been very quiet lately - no posts for over a month - shocking I know but hopefully I can get back on track; if i am a bit slow just bare with me peeps!!

I've been on holiday! I visited some amazing places, attended a very beautiful wedding (where I saw more Sana Safinaz and Nickie Nina numbers than I could keep track of - very soothing for the soul!) only to return to a very wet and grey London - I don't mind the rain, I know we need it but its all the grey I don't like. I hate grey clothing too - I feel it doesn't do anything for any complexion!

Anyway!

On to something pretty - Mina Hasan! Well I'm sure she is a pretty lady but its her clothes that always catch my attention. The colours are always rich and the work looks flawless - all her outfits look very elegant  and have a touch of regal class and sophistication - you don't see much of her collection being flaunted around but every now and again on society pages and the like I'll see her stuff and its almost always beautiful!

My online experience with her has fallen flat on its face - I have never received a response from anyone and have tried numerous times... I suppose they don't need my business! For anyone in and around Karachi I believe she is based there so good luck - for the rest of us there is some eye candy below!




This last outfit below is so pretty!!
