So April is here & what crappy weather OMG! , no idea what’s up with global warming. Anyways, can you believe we are done with almost four months of 2018? I keep asking myself, am I really making the most of my time? honestly, I don’t feel like I do. Sometimes I feel, that I still haven’t done the things I always wanted to do. sigh.
The past month was more about getting back to routine after being out of Toronto for almost three months. Traveling back forth from Dubai to Karachi, mostly hubby’s work-related. But getting to see my parents and friends in Dubai was definitely a Blessing. So technically my Meeqa( Girl’s Family) is in Pakistan and the feeling of being so far away from them is just not a good one, that’s why I jump on any opportunity I get to visit them. hehe 🙂
Let’s focus on some life goals, shall we?
These days, I am mostly lost & constantly trying to evaluate what I really want. Honestly, it’s not a good place to be stuck at but I am sure InshaAllah with time & constant brainstorming, I will find what really makes me happy.
– Baby Z is almost 2 and a half and we started sending her to pre-school just two days in a week for three hours. She’s really enjoying it and it’s a fun way for her to interact and learn.
– Currently, in a phase where I am constantly job hunting which itself is a job hehe.
– Also, sometimes I want to drop the whole idea and just start up something of my own. let’s see.
– Being a mother, It’s a bittersweet moment to see my daughter growing up and starting school but I don’t know now how to get back to my old life & manage the time when she is not there. Like you know that feeling: What do I do with this free time? (though I have so much to do lol)
Any recommendations would be great!
Just finished reading “The 40 rules of Love” By Elif Shafak— Ahh what a book A book that seriously spoke miles to me, it’s a bit slow but don’t stop reading… I have simply loved it every second, every page. I am definitely going to do a book review/ my favorite rules from this book, so stay tuned for that.
On the other hand, my previous read was “How to be a bawse” by Lilly Singh was a great book more about her struggles and the hurdles she faced while climbing the ladder to success. and also great tips if you want to start your own youtube channel. But overall a great fun inspirational book.

Elizabeth Arden’s: Flawless Finish Everyday Perfection Bouncy Makeup
Omg, I love this one so much by Elizabeth Arden, It’s like a hybrid of a foundation & face powder. Combining the benefits of a powder and a cream in one bouncy gel formula. It’s super lightweight and blends effortlessly into the skin to deliver medium, buildable coverage. Totally giving a flawless and a natural-looking, long-wearing finish.
Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Everyday Perfection Bouncy Makeup is available in Hudson’s Bay, London Drugs, and Shoppers Drug Mart.
Nest Fragrances Candles:
CAD $56 – CAD $90
Candles are like my savior, lifting a bad mood or even turning my day around. When Nest Fragrances sent me a box with candles inside, I couldn’t wait to light them hehe. Birchwood pine classic and holiday votice were like Christmas and pine cones in a jar, seriously. Honestly, I had no idea their fragrance would fill up the room in no time.
What are some of your favorite Candles? Please share.
Marc Jacobs Nude Sheer Lipsticks:
Trying Marc Jacobs was like a dream come true. And believe me, it was definitely beyond my expectations. The application is so creamy & beautiful. This lipstick gives the most moisturized feeling & my lips definitely feel happier hehe. Too bad they are not that long lasting but I love the hydrating feeling. Also, it has a very cool magnetic cover.
Marble Slab from Home Depot
Probably the most exciting product that I am currently using for my Flatlay Photography. I was about to purchase the Marble Slab but the employee at Home Depot found me one that had a bit of paint on, basically a damaged piece which I could easily use for my photography. Made me so happy! And seriously, it changed the photography game.
Hope you guys enjoyed this monthly update & seriously, I hope I could continue with writing posts hehe.
Lots of Love
