🎉Blogger Recognition Award! 🎉

✨Hello Everyone!

✨It’s been quiet a while since I have done an award blog post. So I was delighted when TheBeauty&FoodLab nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award🎉.

✨Rules: Let’s get these out of the way first.

✨-Thank the blogger who nominated you while providing a link to the blog site.

TheBeauty&FoodLab is the property of the lovely Shehnaz. It is really a visual treat with stunning photographs, mouth watering recipes and beauty reviews. I highly recommend you check it out and many thanks to her for this nomination 😘

✨-Discuss the reason for starting the blog and talk a little bit about it.


✨I started the blog for two reasons actually. One I was very bored, 😐I had just started my studies, we had just moved to the UAE and I didn’t know a soul and had no idea what to do with my time.

Two I had a habit of writing really long statuses on Facebook 😋. Usually about something interesting/ outrageous or hilarious. A lot of my friends enjoyed reading those so they would encourage me to start a blog. However since I’m a technical dummy I really didn’t want to get into the entire HTML , coding or *%# crap. However as it so happened my first semester ended up being a stress fest and it got me riled that I sat and wrote a 1000 words about my experience. At that very time I got an email from the university asking for volunteer bloggers for the uni student blog. So feeling excited I sent in my blog post only to hear …Nothing.

So I thought to myself oh well it was probably a crappy piece and forgot all about it. The semester ended and about that time I got the same email again requesting blog posts from student volunteers. So I made a few tweaks and resent my post. And would you believe it heard back from the head of student affairs within a few mins. She wrote that she had seen my article before but had got caught up and it had slipped her mind and seeing it again today reminded her. 

She gave me directions to set up an account on WordPress and my post went live the same day and that fellow bloggers was the official start to my blogging journey. 😇 Here is a link to the article incase you want to take a look. 

Read Me😘

I made a separate account for my personal blogging . I had a hunch the university would not be interested in reading about the latest eyeliner I was currently fancying 😜.

And well, you guys know the rest about the blog. It’s mostly product reviews, funny stories and my love for posing for the camera 😋.

✨-Give 2 advices to fellow bloggers/readers.

Be genuine, your blog should reflect your personality.

 Write like you would talk about something, don’t use overly complicated vocabulary, just be yourself. 

✨-Nominate 15 bloggers who you think deserve this accolade.

This part takes me forever to be honest to link the blogs 😫.

I’ll nominate 5 people honestly there are so many I would love to do but the linking thing drives me insane 😖.

✨-Inform all the nominees by commenting on their blog.

Yes your majesty I will be doing that just as soon as I post this 😋.

That’s it for me guys ! Hope you enjoyed this post 😘

🔆The Sunshine Blogger Award🔆

sunshineblogger

Hello People 💖

I’m so happy to be receiving the Sunshine Blogger Award ✨ courtesy of the lovely💞 Kanza from FadedRouge, who also happens to be a fellow UAE resident.

💞Let’s start with the rules and move on to the fun part❣

✨Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.

✨Answer the eleven questions sent by the person who nominated you.

✨Nominate eleven blogs to receive the award and write them eleven new questions.

✨List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or your blog.

✨Here are Kanza’s questions for me 😘

1. Name something that makes you happy?

✨You know it varies something I feel happy after I’ve bought something I’ve wanted for a really long time. Sometimes it’s after being in the company of good friends and sometimes it’s just spending time with my family.

2-Would you rather live in the city or countryside?

✨Im a city girl I’m used to the hustle bustle, the lights, sounds of the city. I would go stir crazy in the country 🍃.

3-What’s your ultimate inspiration song?

✨Currently in not listening to anything special it keeps changing actually. 

4- Name 1 item on your bucket list.

✨Be a famous somebody 😁

5-Do you prefer to write or type?

✨ Type. Back in college I used to be a huge note taker. I would fill notebooks, but I haven’t written in years now. So my handwriting has gotten pretty awful 👎🏻

6-Mountains or Sea?

✨Neither I prefer flat land. Sea makes me think of sharks or drowning and I’m scared of heights 😱so no high places please.

7-What is something you do to relieve stress?

✨I just don’t think about it. I have an imaginary box in my head that I store all the stressful, unhappy things in. 

8-What is your happy colour?

✨ I like blue I always have. 

9-If you visit a new place or country what is the first thing you would do?

✨ I want to find out where the outlet malls are 😁

10-What is one thing you cannot live without?

✨I believe I can live without anything if I set my mind to it. Dependency makes you weak. 

11- Who do you look up to?

✨My parents to bail me out of whatever.

💟Hope you guys enjoyed reading that!

I’ll answer Rashmi’s questions first✨

💟What is your goal in life?

⚜To be geniunely happy and content in whatever I do. 

💟What is the most dear memory from your childhood?



⚜The happiest times for me were summer vacations when we would all beg out parents to let us stay over at our grand parents house beause that’s where all our cousins would be. Playing out in the garden, swinging widly on the swings pretending they were space ships and the faster we would swing the further in we would go. Playing fun house and watching it on TV ( anyone remember watching that show❓)rooting for our favorite teams I would always end up on the gold team for some reason 🤔. Playing endless games of hide and seek, monkey monkey, ludo, carem, digging in the garden and making mud mountains, cooling off with the hose and getting yelled at for using up all the water. Eating homemade fries and countless bags of chilly chips (I don’t think calories were invented back then😋).

💟Favourite food?

⚜I love Daal Chawal I could eat it everyday. 
💟Why did you start blogging?

⚜I was bored to tears, had nothing better to do and it seemed like a better idea than sulking. 😋

💟Your inspiration or your role model?

⚜Hmm…honestly no one yet has inspired me to do anything worthwhile till now so I guess I’m still waiting for that person to materialize 🙃
💟What is that one thing you cannot live withot? (I mean apart from oxygen 😛 )

⚜You can learn to live without anything or anyone trust me. That age old I can’t live without you or I’ll die without you line❓Nope all bull****. I dropped my iPhone in the sink and had to go without for two weeks and I’m still here aren’t i❓

💟Where are you from?

Why do I owe you anything?💰
💟How many languages can you speak?

⚜Two and a half, English, Urdu and Spanish.

💟Where do you see yourself 15 yeras from now?
⚜I can’t even see myself five minutes from now I’m not very clairvoyant ✨.

💟Do you have any pets?

⚜No I don’t want anything in the house that can’t use the toilet and put the lid back down .

💟 Biggest pet-peeve?

When people accept blogger awards and don’t bother nominating anyone I hello you did read the rules right❓

So hopefully some of you aren’t ready to bring out the barf bags yet here are K.M Sutton’s questions. Are we still having fun 😉

💟 What is your song of summer?

⚜The last song I was actively listening to was I hate you I love you by Gnash.

💟Do you have a secret talent?
⚜ I can sing 🎼.

💟What made you start blogging?

⚜Lol if I remember I was bored.

💟Coffee or tea?

Tea for breakfast, coffee any other time.

💟What city or country are you dying to visit?
⚜ Haha I love how she phrased this😂. Right now any place cool we are dealing with 40+🌡degrees here. Actually I wanted to visit Eygpt after I saw The Mummy. Brandon Fraser was so cute💕.

💟What is a fun fact about yourself?

Don’t you mean embarrassing fact😉. I love talking to myself in the mirror, I am at my craziest and most ridiculous when I’m by myself.

💟Do you prefer the book version or movie adaption? 

⚜Book version for sure, I hate when I have to sit through the movie expecting it to be a certain way and it isn’t.😡

💟Nude lipstick or red lipstick?

Red❗️Go bold or go home ❗️ 

💟What is your favorite app or site? 



My go to sites for shopping are loft, Amazon and zappos and for browsing I love Etsy. 

💟What is one beauty product you can not live without? 



⚜My Kajal stick I feel naked without it 😳

💟What is something you are looking forward to in the next few months? 

⚜Get ready for a shit, boring answer: Nothing😒. I’ve been let down so many times lately I’ve started taking things as they come.

There you have it loves💕 a Shopaholic TMI😉.
