Sharing some intimate details of this oh-so-special day! 🖤💍 ✨WEEK OF PROPOSAL:
First, a little back story on our relationship! Anif and I met in New York City (where we both lived at the time) on January 1st, 2016. It was totally coincidental that we both ended up being from Texas! We had both made plans with a mutual friend and all ended up meeting at a dinner that night. ✨Back to the proposal! About a week before the proposal Anif mentioned to me that there was this e commerce gala in Austin that he really wanted to attend because it would be a good networking opportunity for him and his online business (S/O @kraniyum). Thinking nothing of it, I agreed to accompany him. Lucky for him, one week before the proposal was Black Friday so of course my friends and even my mom had asked if I wanted to go shopping. This started to arise some suspicion but then again who doesn’t love a good sale! That same week about 4 of my girlfriends asked if I needed to get my nails done, so I began to put the pieces together. 🤣 Regardless of my suspicions, everyone did a pretty good job of throwing me off and telling me how busy they would be the weekend of December 1st (proposal weekend). (Side note: I’ve always told Anif that I want my family and closest friends there the day he decides to propose!) At this point, I was more confused than anything and just decided to go with the flow.
Thanks for reading along! 🤗 The “day of” story will be told in the next post so stay tuned! 💕
I have always loved airports. The hustle bustle of it, happiness of the people coming out, sadness of the family going in. Everyone is telling thier story without even saying anything.
My story lies in-between.How hard does it get sometimes when you feel torn. Torn between happiness of going to meet the family you miss and sorrow of leaving someone you love behind.
So yeah me and my little one are leaving our major part behind. I was very happy when the tickets were booked and was counting the days to the flight but as the time passed that joy was tainted by little drops of sadness as we were not going together as a whole family.
Because I was feeling bad about all this so I even started nagging him less and he found it quite funny. Also he took it as his chance to get anything done. 🙄
Anyways I was wondering how life changes because before we can't live without our parents and then after marriage we can't live without our life partner. So this was my story.
Does this happen to you too? 😊 .
A month ago, I got my Vit D tested as I was feeling lethargic & weak to my bone.And the result says I am deficient.My mom has it too. I assume every other woman has this deficiency & we are quite okay about it. Which means doing NOTHING for the cure. Many of us don’t even know till we actually hear the cracking while offering prayers or climbing stairs. Surprisingly, living in a country where the sun shines brightly each day (alhumdulilah), we are so unfortunate to have low levels of Vit D. The only reason is we are too lazy to move our butt out of the house, to the garden or to the rooftop, for sun exposure.
Is it too much to do for my health? I asked myself. And the answer was No. So I have decided to get shaam ki dhoop just before the sunset. If you are an early riser you can take the one after the sun rises.
Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency include bone pain, muscle weakness, increased blood pressure, and depression. Yes, you read it right. DEPRESSION! The most common problem these days.
So Guys, get your Vit D checked, get the right amount of sunlight every day, go out just to breathe, take your supplements or Vit D rich foods like fish, eggs, oats & dairy products & feel the difference. Even Fresh air can do wonders for your mood by raising oxygen levels in the blood.
Living a healthy(read: happy) life is a choice that we make each day. Invest in good health, you’ll never regret. 😊
here is my quick everyday makeup tutorial! It takes literally 3 mins 😊
Concealer- maybelline age rewind shade neutralizer
Bb cream- Sephora skin tint 25 Beige
Bronzer- wet n wild fergie bronzer (I think it’s discontinued but the Milani baked bronzer is the same! It’s so glowy) Mascara- essence lash princess
Lip Gloss- Becca Rose Gold
🚨 DISCLAIMER 🚨 : My internet was not cooperating during the streaming of this episode and the content was not viewed in HD.
Despite all that, if you want to LAUGH OUT LOUD, please view this episode pronto! 🙏🏻 Free flowing conversations with people who were easy on the 👀 , with their faces AND their clothing 👬, and I just had to chuckle along them for the ride 😆. I have to admit that I already knew this episode would be a good one, since I saw the trailer last week. Diljit and Badshah are two of my favorite people and having listened to honest, witty interviews given by them previously, I knew that much fun would be had on this couch 🛋 as well.
Diljit Dosanjh & Badshah’s camaraderie was very organic and the fashion quiz was my favorite part. There was a slight dip in the rapid 🔥 fire 🔥 round, but the engaging entertainment factor was back up ⬆️in the gaming zone.
Karan Johar made fun of his own outfit at the start of this episode, so he spared me the effort.🕴🏻
Even though, I really appreciate the customization of games and quizzes to suit the guests, I feel like giving Diljit and Badshah lassi shots instead of coffee shots, was a wee bit offensive and fell into the zone of ‘geography based discrimination’. I mean, it’s not like coffee ☕️ is too exotic a drink for people from Punjab.🤨
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: If this episode instills an urge in you to watch more of these people, PLEASE WATCH Diljit Dosanjh’s interview with Anupama Chopra on Film Companion (YouTube). I can guarantee a rise in the release of your endorphins! 😁
**PARENTING EXPECTATION :3 How I am mending ties?? So how I mending ties and correcting my parenting mistakes?
By adopting the groundbreaking Conscious #parenting approach introduced by Dr Shefali : an international speaker, acclaimed #author , and creator of —which #oprahwinfrey has endorsed as 'revolutionary' and 'life-changing'. What I have learnt from her and applied and found helpful I am putting below:
1. Realizing: when you are parenting you have to understand that you are not raising 'mini me' but a spirit throbbing with its own signature. You have to accept they will not be like you, thry are their own unique selves.
2. Encourage them to try and experiment. Help them find their strengths. Whether he does it right or slow...let them do in their own way to understand and make sense out of things.
3. Celebrate their efforts. Here is the main key.. Always always appreciate the effort and no the result. Your child tried...you see your child practicing his writing appreciate that regardless if he still managed to learn his spellings or not.
4. Accepting his results proactively. Don't be like me saying " all my hardwork wasted you scored so less". It's NOT yours. You are NOT in the competition so leave your *always a winner* spirit back.
Accept what results they bring graciously and starting from positive announcements say why he achieved this much and if only we work a little more on that we can get even better.
5. Let them know that these tests exams races and competitions - these worldly measures of success are not what defines his worth. His morals values and inetgrity does. . .
Hope you find it helpful. Do share with me your strategies as there is no right or wrong in #parenting . We learn each day and with each child - - yet we are clueless most of the time. . .

@makeuprevolution does dupes like a BOSS 😎
Today I am reviewing the Blushing Hearts Triple Baked Blusher from the 'I💗 Makeup' range by @makeuprevolution!
This range is an exact replica of the @toofaced Sweethearts blushes in terms of packaging as well as quality.
The moment I saw this and the other in the range, I was so much in love that I wanted to get my hands on all of them! But then I got the one which has three different shades:
◻Pinkish white ◻Pinky pink
It has an amazing pigmentation & is very glowy. It not only has a very fine & smooth texture but is also quite compact, thus reducing wastage. It is quite shimmery which for me is a HIT💯, but for someone who does not like blinding highlight, it's a miss❕ Although it is labelled a 'blusher', I use it as a highlighter only because of its luminosity.
This 'highlighter' is easy to work with, angelic to look at & a little goes a long way! It comes in a very chic packaging which is totally travel-friendly!
I am definitely a 'blinding hightlighter' person & this been my lust for a while!
I got it from @makeuprevolution station @centerpointme was for SR:75
PS: For the inner corner of the eye & the brow bone, the pinkish white shade damped with @maccosmeticsmiddleeast 'Fix+' (or any other setting spray) works the best.

As mothers we are always given advice, sometimes it’s wanted and often it’s unwanted advice. .
“Oh she looks so weak, feed her this or that”
“ oh you should have kids close in age, 5 years gap is too much” .
Often we start to think too much of these comments, we began to trust those around us.
For example: When your child doesn’t find any interest in food, you start posting on different groups online, googling, calling up friends and relatives to see if someone can guide you on how to tackle the situation. .
What we miss to see is the one we should be talking to is the one who created our baby. He knows best and asking Allah to help you and guide you will always result in the best solution for you and your child. .
At the end of the day just remember he made you a mother for a reason, he made you capable and strong enough to raise these tiny humans, do what you think is best for your child, trust your instincts and trust only the almighty.
