Hello my lovelies and boyzes, I’m back here after my exams. The other day, I was scrolling through my instagram feed which was literally flooded with the Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding snaps and snippets. I believe most of us have already witnessed the royal wedding through social media and some of us tuned into tv channels and watched the live ceremony but I want to share a few of my thoughts today.
This is Meghan at her own wedding.
Despite being a princess how simple is she looking. Yes? I mean no heavy makeup either jewelry. This is their royal wedding; simple, uncomplicated yet elegant. But what do we Pakistani’s do at our shadis? Parents start saving for their child’s big day from the day he/she is born. A whole lot of money is spent just on that One Occasion.
This practice is wholly against our Islamic values and regulations, I believe. Then why are we practicing hindu rituals? After that one day, bride’s wedding dress remains packed or hangged in the cupboard for years. Believe me or not, once the wedding ceremony/celebration ends, nobody cares about how fancy the decor was or how delicious the food was!
We want glamorous makeup and most beautiful dresses on our events just because it’s trendy. Right? We’re too much into formalities and all that. In my opinion, this has got to do with tv soaps where vulgar display of pomp and show is a norm.
We are mere puppets. We’ve become hollow from inside just stuffed with useless things and feelings like show off, greed, selfishness and so much more. We’ve become so slef centered, full with worries and hurries of life that even while walking by a stream or a beautiful street we do not admire on the little yet tempting things and beautiful nature around. Why?
Do you agree? Do you agree with my stance if yes than use my hashtag #thoughtsbyeman and share your views on your social media accounts, express what you think about this. Trust me I’d absolutely love to read them all. Don’t forget to tag me @emanwrites. And oh, I’ll publish your precious thoughts in my story!
Hey lovelies, hope everybody’s perfectly alright. Recently I attented a bloggers meetup at the launch of ‘Aodour Cosmetics’ at the Emporium mall, Lahore. Okay so let me first brief you a little about the brand.
Adour basically wishes to bring the best and most wanted cosmetic and makeup brands under one roof. It is the first walk-in make-up store in Pakistan with K- beauty products. Isn’t it amazing? Believe me or not, shopping for cosmetics in Pakistan has never been this simple before.
This is how amazing the store looked like!
I also just uploaded a vlog on the meetup; click on the following link:
A glimpse of their skin care products made from natural aloe vera and honey extracts.
One of the best parts was that they offered a free makeover by the gorgeous Ayesha at the launch!
Rush to their store right now as they have got some real products just for you!
Masks for only Rs.199 Isn’t this so economial? yeah?
Second best part was that they also offered free skin consultation by the most friendly Dr. Rehana.
Here’s the snippet which I created, click right down there to watch full:-
You can also order their products online and pay cash on delivery or by credit/debit card. Find them on:-
I kickstarted this year on an awesome note as @emanwrites won the ‘liebster award’. Today, I thought to share a few of my favourite products of 2017! If you also want to know then scroll down;
5 favourite products of mine:
This is an awesome budget friendly exfoliating bath salt which finds a home on my bathroom counter. I bought it from miniso store. It has also played a major role in my skin care routine, I scrub this on my face for like 4 mins before taking shower. Believe me or not, this leaves my skin so soft and smooth like anything.
Super star shoes:
I have been crushing on them since forever. And I got these as a present on my birthday! I wear them literally everywhere I go as they match with almost every outfit and enhance the overall look.
Thats my all time fav piece which I wear everywhere like everyywhere I go; to my college, work, shopping, dine-outs and where not. Got this astonishing ticker wristwatch from misiso as well.
It is a ‘lifesaver’. I was shocked of how smooth my hair felt when I used this one for the first time. It leaves the hair shiny. I find it multipurpose as it’s also good as a blow-dry spray but I use this one before ironing my hair as it protects hair damage from heat.
This is one of my favourites too. Super trendy, chic, polarized and lightweight sun glasses which I keep in hand.
And I think we are finally done with five of my favourite products of 2017. Do share yours too as feedback is always appreciated moreover, I’d love to know about your favourites! See you next time with another blog post until then *stay chic*
Starting this year on an awesome overwhelming note as @emanwrites just got the liebster award. Its such a motivating little spark of delight and I genuinely feel so lucky about it. 😀

Hey boyses, Sorry for being so inactive on the blog. I’ve recieved a number of requests on instagram to share the recepie of chocolate-coffee delight which I usually tend to make. The recepie is way too simple and it tastes as amazing as anything. So let’s get started;
Things you’ll need:
2 cream packs
candi biscuit 2 half rolls
How to make:
Firstly, make custard. I prefer chocolate flavoured custard for this.
Get two half roll packs of candi biscuit and break them in a seperate plate.
Now take a glass/cup/dish and make a layer of crushed biscuits in it.
Seperately, in a glass take some water and put a little bit of coffee and mix well. Then sprinkle this water onto the biscuits layerd in that cup/dish; So that the biscuits become soft.
Secondly, beat cream, 2 spoons of sugar and condense milk in a bowl and refrigerate for a little while.
Thirdly, make layer of custard in that cup over the biscuits.
Pour some cocktail onto the custard. So, this will be the third layer in cup.
On the top, make another layer using cream & condense milk mixture.
Lastly, do some dressing with chocolate syrup ( I use hershey’s chocolate syrup for dressing) One can also sprinkle some chocolate chips and cocoa powder on top to make it appear more appealing and yummy.
Refrigerate the cups/dish and then serve.
Taddaaaaa! Your danity sweetdish is ready!
Do try out the recepie and let me know how it goes. Until next time *stay chic*
Hey folks, hope you all are doing great. My weekend was super relaxing, Sorry for being so inactive as I as super busy with some college stuff. Anyway, I made chocolate tart and they were luciously delightful so I thought to share the recepie with you all lovelies!

1 inch deep tart pan & saucepan
For the dough:
For the filling:
cream 1/2 pack

Blend with hands untill a mixture is formed.
squeeze and roll it to form a dough, when a dough is formed wrap it up in a plastic sheet and keep in a refrigerator for about 15mins.
Untill then heat the oven.
For the filling; take a saucepan, put cream, milk, butter, casted sugar, choppped cocolate & mix well. Heat it until a fluid-like chocolate forms.
Take out the dough from refrigerator, press dough in a pan evenly from edges as well so it fits tightly. Using a fork make holes on either sides of the dough in order to prevent bubbles or cracks.
Bake this for about 30 mins until the tart turns golden in colour.
Now put the chocolate filling into tart and refrigerate.
When the tart completely cools down, cut it into pieces and serve.
This is super easy and tastes amazing like anything, believe me!

Last night when it was late rather I wasen’t even sleepy, I was wondering that it’s pretty commonly accepted that the world is an unfair place. The flickering of news channels and news papers can almost always be counted on to be a bearer of bad news of how much humanity is in chaos. Thus, I thought to express my feelings into words. The harsh reality is that we live in a spiteful, ruthless world where more often darkness can be found not only in the surroundings, but can be felt within ourselves.
Let’s talk about rain, consider it as a blessing and compare the leaves drinking rain water with the wealthy people of our society. What basically happens is that the fat cat and money lender people snatch and snippet all the belssings of Allah and utilize them to the most. And whatever which is in-appropriate or fruitless to them is spilled away to the poor people as charity. Another noteable thing here is that they give away the things to vagrant or povery-stricken people as a charity but not as their basic right. Correspondingly the upper leaves of a plant or tree drink rain water to quench their thrirst first and raindrops which are useless for them are trickled to the leaves beneath. I suggest this as a perfect example of what’s happening around the globe today! The rich are getting moneyed by leaps and bounds and on the contrary poor are getting into more worse conditions day by day. Why is the world so evil and cruel?
There’s a saying out there: The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.
But we should never be hopeless or tragic because there’s even more beyond that awaiting in the not-too-distant future. So never let the bitterness steal your sweetness!
Happy sunday guys, see you next time untill then *stay chic* #happyreading
Eid Mubarak buddies! I hope you all are doing great. As promised second blog from this series is right here. Today I’m sharing some bits and pieces of stuff that I loved during the month of july. The year is passing by really fast can’t believe its september already. Now Lets start with my July favourites;
The smoky grey kurta:
I got this piece from khaadi & the most attractive thing about this kurta were the sleeves that caught my eyes at first. I actually love baggy and flow-y clothes. A pop of colour had to be added to this elegant shirt so I decided to pair it with pink pants.
I got these super chic, funky and trendy glasses from outfitters. And I tend to wear them almost everywhere. hehe
I got these swank and super comfortable red fur slippers from haroon’s. Despite being home/washroom slippers I love to wear them casually at most of the places currently.
So guys, thats all from my July favourites. See you next time untill then *stay chic*
