Style Brunch with Tangle Teezer + InvisiBobble!

I know I'm not the only one who's the worst at making hair styles! So when Tangle Teezer and Invisibobble host an event, one has to attend it. The event was held at Amethyst by Roohi Salon, Shumaila from Beauty Redefine and Jee Bee from The Glam World attended the event with me! I had never heard of Invisibobble before the event so seeing the demo on how to make a hair style using ONLY the Invisibobble was very informative. 

The girl's doing the demo were all trained by the InvisiBobble team from Germany via Skype, so all of the hairstyles had a unique flair to them that can suit medium to longer length hair.

Dolls for Demo

The oh-so-pretty Shumaila modeling for a medium-length hairstyle using the Invisibobble. Since her hair was already curled, the hair style turned out really cute!

And lastly since I was the only one in the audience with longer length hair, the hair stylist made a cute high pony using only the InvisiBobbbl! It's amazing how using only 1 InvisiBobble made the hair style stay in place without sliding down as regular hair bands do!


I had an absolute wonderful time at the event! I learned a lot about using InvisiBobble and easy hairstyles to use with it. Of course the lovely team at Super Brands International gave us bloggers a goodie bag filled with Tangle Teezers, InvisiBobble and my favorite Yankee Candle!

All of the products are available at Amethyst by Roohi SalonFor more information on InvisiBobble and Tangle Teezer Pakistan check out their Facebook Pages!

Gem Stone Jewlery Pieces from OMG Jewelz

If you're looking for quality jewelry pieces without breaking the bank, I've found just the place! As an online shopping junkie, it's hard to figure out which stores really are worth spending money over. 

OMG Jewelz is a relatively new online shop dedicated to trendy jewelry pieces that came under my radar recently. I was a bit hesitant to review jewlery since as many of you know I frequently shop from AliExpress for inexpensive jewelry, but once I got these in the mail I don't think I will ever buy cheap jewlery again! Let's take a closer look these pieces.

STONE LION HEAD NECKLACE
I'm not huge with necklaces but I must say, this piece is stunning! I wish there was a way to SHOW how heavy this chain is. It's not flimsy at all, I can really compare this to branded pieces since the finishing is smooth and very shiny. Since the chain is quite heavy in weight, the hooks are just as sturdy. The pendant paired with the multicolored gems and stones really makes a trendy piece. This definitely calls for a minimal outfit when wearing this out!

Price: Rs. 1,050.00

CONTRACTED GEM BRACELET
I'm in love with this bracelet, just like the necklace this piece has a stunning high quality finish and weight to it. I really like the color combo in this piece since turquoise, green and blue just looks classy. The hook on this bracelet is sturdy and isn't bendable at all. Even the gems are secured so there isn't a chance of them falling out. There is a matching Gem necklace that goes with the bracelet which is just as classy.

Price Rs. 750.00
After trying out these 2 pieces I'm definitely going to be placing an order with them soon! The site is very easy to browse around and there are multiple photos of each item. If you're planning on ordering, rest assure that all of the pieces will be packaged securely in bubble wrap. 

If you're going to purchase something from OMG Jewelz, you can save 5% off your order using the code "sidran" upon checkout to save a little money. The site does provide free cash on delivery across Pakistan and they ship worldwide at a flat rate shipping charge of $5.

Mid-Year 2015 Makeup Favorites

My favorites never really change year around, unless I haul a bunch of products that make it into my favorites. But these products are pure gems in my collection! 

Mid-Year Makeup Favorites

Face Products: 

I can not leave the house without wearing a little bit of concealer, the Maybelline Age Rewind in Medium matches my skintone perfectly. I love how this covers without looking cakey or unatural. If you're nc25-30 this will match your skin, I would go with Light next time for a brightening effect. I always use the Color Studio Concealer Brush paired with this concealer, it gives an airbrushed effect!

Since my skin is oil-combination, the Elf Mineral Primer and CoverGirl Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation is my go to! I love wearing this on a day when I will be out all day, for an evening occasion I will add a few drops of Revlon ColorStay for more coverage.

For cheeks, these 2 shimmery products are amazing! Sleek Blush in Rose Gold and Makeup Revolution Highlighter in Golden Lights both have very fine shimmer and really makes the cheeks glow!

Eye Products
During Black Friday back in december, I picked up the Coastal Scents Fall Festival palete and I never looked back. These shadows are soooo smooth, pigmented and buttery, I love using these for a neutral makeup look. I like the pops of rose and olives in this palette too. I can't wear any eyeshadow without the Luscious Angel Eyes Eye Primer, it cancels out any darkness and works really well to get ride of darkness on your eyes. It makes my shadows last all day!

For brow, the ELF Brow Kit in Medium is perfect for everyday to fill in sparse areas, I do have to set this with a powder since the gel is quite creamy. I've been a lash junkie these days, both of these are amazing on my lashes! The Essence I heart Extreme and Jordana Best Lash Extreme give a lot of volume and length while holding a curl so perfectly! For liner, the Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil is the perfect black for all day wear. 

Lip Products
I love a good nude, natural lipstick for everyday wear. All of these are perfect shades for medium complexions, these don't wash out your lip color but add the perfect natural lip color. Kat Von D Studded Kiss in Lovecraft is a very warm mauve shade in a matte finish. I got this in the holiday mini lipstick set and this one has been my most reached for! Jordana Matte Lipstick in Terracotta is a coraly nude shade with a matte finish. This doesn't dry out the lips but wear well for quite some hours. Too Faced Melted Nude is very similar to Terracotta but gives a nice satin finish to the lips. Melted Fuschia is my go-to for evening occasions, its a bright bold cool tone pink!



What are some of your favorites that you've been obsessed with lately?!

EGO Ready-To-Wear Pret for EID!

Ego is one brand to watch for your Eid shopping. The brand's latest launch for Ramzan can be described as Cheerful, Free-Spirited and Imaginative. 

I've always been a fan of EGO's ready-to-wear, with their minimalistic yet chic prints perfect to pair with bold accessories. The collection features some stitched and unstitched pret.

Apparel:

Rio is one of the most eye-catching design out of the collection, made out of 100% cotton. The subtle mint kurta is paired with a baby pink chiffon dupatta. The nature theme is screen printed on cotton fabric. 

Pixels is one for the color lovers! The multi-colored design is paired with a hot pink chiffon dupatta. The digitally printed top is 100% cotton and can be worn with either black or white tights. 

One Direction
Cootie Catcher is a fun design for those who love to color contrast their outfits. The bold orange and yellow design is paired with a similar tone chiffon dupatta. Another digitally printed top made with 100% cotton material. 

One Direction is my favorite out of the collection! The subtle grey and navy print is subdued yet has a shocking pink chiffon dupatta to add a twist to the outfit. The screen printed design is made out of 100% cotton. 

Bags:

45 Degrees
Donna is perfect for the girl-on-the-go, the cross body style bag fits just about anything while still looking sophisticated. This is ideal for all working women or girls headed to college! It's made in leatherite material.

45 Degrees for the girl who's headed out on the town, this fold-over clutch is long enough to fit your smartphone and wallet. Easy enough to carry all your makeup too! The material is made out of canvas and leatherite.

Shoes:

Bow-Tie
Coils
Bow Tie is my fav out of the shoe collection, the strapy neon yellow flat just screams summer. Made out of comfy leatherite material to keep your feet looking adorable all summer long. 

Coils is the perfect summer flat. The light mint strapy flat is perfect for a day out at a the beach or going out with friends! The style is comfortable and perfect to go with a casual summer outfit.

Reptile is a metallic leatherite sandal for a sophisticated touch to your outfit. 
Match it with an outfit ideal for an evening dinner. The light texturized look adds an interesting feel to the sandal. 

Reptile

Overall I am super excited about the collection, I have my eye on One Direction since it's perfect to wear all year around. I'm glad the prints are on 100% since I'm not a huge fan of sheer lawn material.
