Leather Loving!

Hi all,

Here's to being more regular on BFB... working as the beauty and fashion editor for OK! leaves me little time for my blog, but I have a great idea. I will be sharing my work pages with you on here, as well as some OOTD's.

Here is one from the Millennial Fashion Show! I almost didn't upload this look, but the pictures by Sana Sultan are so great that I had to. I feel they capture my personality exactly, and this is what I really look like in real life.


Outfit details:
Leather pants by Witchery, Top from Singapore boutique, Shoes by Gianvito Rossi, Karung serpenti from Bvlgari, Necklace and index finger ring by Colette Hayman.

My fab followers,

Today I bring to you a bunch of really fun pictures. This was from our official OK! Pakistan shoot, and here I am seen posing with my fabulous coworkers! The theme was monochrome..

Every single day in the office is a blast with these ladies!! Pictures are a true depiction of how the day goes by at the OK! Pakistan head office..

What I'm wearing: Asos striped leggings, Tea & Toast top, Mantra faux fur gilet, Nine West booties, Primark necklace adding a pop of neon to the outfit, as is the pink bangle which is from a market in Argentina.

I remember shopping locally for this outfit, heading over to Mantra and Nine West.. Mantra has some super fun pieces, remember buying quite a bit from there.

Bridal Diary: Valima

Good morning all!!!!

The final string of my 'bridal diaries' feature is all about my valima! This function took place in Lahore at my husbands family residence, it was more like a high tea/dinner. The food was catered by Cosa Nostra, and the decor was also done through there. This function I thoroughly enjoyed as I wasn't so stressed about any of the planning. The function turned into a party after, which was great fun!!!! 

The garden at my husbands family residence is very beautiful, so very little had to be done in regards to the decor, it was all about accentuating the garden, with fairy lights, chandeliers, flowers with the right lighting and it looked gorgeous.

I wore a bridal by Tena Durrani. I was told to pick something of my choice so I opted for a very very very traditional 'Jodha Akbar' style look, Tena and I sat for ages picking the colour combination, as I wanted 3 different colours, two out of which had to be red and orange... Tena suggested a gorgeous mustard shade and it looked phenomenal, the kaam on the clothes up close is divine with semi precious stones all over.. Tena is one of the most talented designers I have come across and her and Taimur (CEO) did everything in their power to ensure my bridal was beyond stunning. With the bridal I wore 3 different traditional sets, a tikkah and a jhumar... these were given to my by my in laws. I carried a crystal Judith Leiber clutch and wore YSL shoes. My hair and make up were done by Leena Ghani, who is so immensely talented, she was one of the only make up artists to do the under the foundation style conturing that we see Kim Kardashian do, and she gave me a smokey eye which is something I rarely ever do myself and a bright red pout!!!! My hair was left open with slight waves. This was actually one of my favourite looks from my wedding!!

My husband wore a black nehru suit, which is something very different - never seen a groom wear it!!! It went well with the whole traditional look and he looked super handsome, MA!!

Here are the pictures...

 These are the only pictures I have of the decor...

Now that I have covered my whole wedding, I look forward to posting up street style 'Ensemble Du Jours'.. so do keep a look out for them!!

Lots of love,
