SheIn Wishlist

SheIn Shopping Wishlist1

Recently, I have started purchasing a lot of clothes and fashion accessories online. Despite the fact that I can’t try the clothes out before buying them, I think online shopping is much easier and convenient. In fact, a lot of the shopping websites have free returns or refunds which makes the whole shopping experience more reliable. 

SheIn.com is one of the few fashion websites that I trust and shop online from. 

  • They ship to over 80 countries worldwide.
  • They do accept returns within 30 days of receipt.
  • You can track your order 24/7.
  • You can earn points!
  • They frequently have discounted items.

Here’s my wishlist of SheIn items that I absolutely love! 

  1. Embroidered Flower Patch Bell Sleeve Self Tie Dress:

     

    Flower patches are making a huge comeback in the fashion industry and I couldn’t be happier. I adore clothes with embroidery so this one is definitely on my wishlist.

  2. Fluted Sleeve Vine Embroidered Gingham Dress:

     

    1900’s Gingham print is back in action! This dress comes in blue and black, but I personally prefer the blue gingham print. I would love to buy this dress seeing as it is the perfect one for the summer season.

  3. Aztec Feather Print Dip Hem Chiffon Top:

     

    There’s nothing better than wearing a loose tee on a hot summer day. I think the print of this shirt is pretty cute.

  4. Bardot Embroidered Appliques Trumpet Sleeve Top:

     

    Like I said, I love embroidered clothing, so this top is one of my favourites. I think the cut is perfect and the red flowers really stand out.

  5. Cat Embroidery Knotted Hem Cuffed Shirt:

     

    Light blue is definitely one of my favourite colours so this shirt is already on my good side, haha. I really like the pattern of this shirt. Plus, the cat detailing adds up to the overall design of the shirt.

  6. Cropped Self Tie Wide Leg Pants:

     

    Whenever I  have a long day’s work, I prefer wearing wide leg pants rather than skinny trousers because they are comfortable and in fashion! It isn’t easy to find a pair with perfect fitting, but these cropped pants definitely give a classy look.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post!

Review: L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation

Beauty Review
If you’re on a hunt for a good foundation, look no further!

I recently purchased the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation and I was beyond satisfied with the product.

Packaging: I like the packaging because it’s simple and easy to carry around without making a mess.

Coverage: This foundation has far by the best coverage. I have tried out many foundations in the past, but there’s something about the texture of L’Oreal’s foundation that gives you maximum coverage without weighing down your skin. Plus, it leaves a smooth finish.

Suitability: I have a combination skin type so this product worked fine for me. However, from what I’ve heard, the foundation works well with oily and acne-prone skin types too as it is matte and doesn’t add up to the oiliness of your skin.

How long did it last? 
I wore this foundation in the morning to kick start my day and by the time I got home at night, the foundation was still in tact. Also, considering the fact that it’s really hot outside, the foundation didn’t come off easily even when I dabbed my face with a tissue to get rid of the sweat.

Verdict: It’s safe to say that if you’re looking for a long-lasting foundation, then this particular one is perfect for you.

I hope you enjoyed reading this review!

Internship Diaries

Being an intern.png

Internships mean different things to different people. For me, an internship is one of the most important parts of your higher education because it gives you real life experience and broadens your perspective. I’m currently pursuing my studies at university and I decided to intern at a company during the summer vacation. One of the main reasons why I took this decision was because I wanted to do something productive and new.

Today, I’m going to share with you some of the advantages of doing an internship:

  1. Work Experience:

    Internships are the best way to get hands-on experience of everything you’ve learned so far. Since you are involved in many departments of the company that you’re working for, it will really add up to your CV.

  2. Interpersonal Skills:

    Another benefit of being an intern is that you learn how to communicate and behave in an official workplace, so even if you make any mistakes, you will learn from them. In fact, you build your confidence when you speak to new people and pitch your ideas to them.

  3. Gain Exposure:

    When you work for the first time, you get exposed to a lot of new things. In the sense, you observe what people are doing and get an outlook on what really goes on behind the scenes.

  4. Connecting With People:

    When you enter a new workplace, you tend to interact with a lot of people. In fact, you make connections with people who might even share the same interests as you.

All in all, from my personal experience, I can definitely assure you that being an intern is a lot of fun because you learn something new every day!

Movie Marathon-Wonder Woman (2017)

Movie Marathon

Storyline:

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.

Review:

I have always been a fan of movies wherein women are portrayed as strong, confident, and self-sufficient beings. Wonder Woman being one such movie has made millions of people across the world believe that good always wins over evil. The emotions I felt while watching the movie were confusing, to say the least. One moment, I was excited and the next, I was anxious. The plot of the story reminded me of a fairytale as it progresses from a small, protective place to an intense, war-driven area. In fact, the storyline flowed smoothly from one scene to the next which made me even more excited about what was about to happen in the very next moment. Moving on to the cast, I was amazed at how well the actors played out their roles. From Gal Gadot to Chris Pine to Connie Nielsen, everyone seemed so realistic in their character. What I loved most about the movie was that it had a lot of action mixed with a pinch of humor and romance. Let’s not forget the ending (not going to be very specific in light of those who haven’t watched the movie yet) which broke my heart into little pieces. All in all, I salute Patty Jenkins for the immense effort that she has put in to make this movie a huge success!

Life Lessons:
  1. Believe in yourselfImage result for wonder woman chris pine gifRelated imageWonder Woman’s self-belief is something I can learn from. She believes that she has the power to make things right.
  2. Never be afraid to take risks 
    Inevitably, we are all afraid to take chances in life. However, from the various characters in this movie, I’ve learned that taking risks will only get you farther in life. Even if things don’t go as planned, learn from your mistakes.
  3. Fight for what you believe is right
    Image result for wonder woman gif
    If you have a gut feeling that your intentions are good and that you can make a difference in this world, go for it!

DIY Quote Bag

Capture.JPG

I enjoy DIY because it gets my creative juices flowing and motivates me to create things that are quite useful! 
As most of you already know, I love quotes and have a lot of them framed on my wall. So, I decided to add some inspiration to a plain tote bag. 

Items needed:
  • Plain tote bag (Any solid color bag will do.)
  • Fabric Paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Stencils
  • Water
  • Old plastic mat
Steps:
  1. Get your painting space ready.
  2. Place the plastic mat inside the bag so that the paint doesn’t get to the other side of the bag.
    20170623_172429.jpg
  3. Select a quote of your choice. For this bag, I chose: “Creativity is intelligence having fun.”
  4. Wet your brush a little before dipping it in the fabric paint.
  5. Place the letter stencil on the bag and paint with your favourite colour.
  6. Let the bag dry for half an hour at least.

  7. To make the bag look more trendy, I pinned a lightweight golden chain.
