Beauty: Apple of my eye.

Considering eyes as the soul part of the face, no wonder, women gives so much importance in enhancing their eyes in different ways with various techniques. Hence, while talking about the eyes, one can’t deny and leave the fact of using eyeliner in every women’s day-to-day life to make things much easier yet in an effective way.

Meanwhile, even though, there are so many eyeliner products in various forms including kohl eyeliner, liquid eyeliner and wax-based eyeliner available in the high-street, I was determined to try to experience these two new-era beauties: Loreal Super Liner Perfect Slim and Maybelline New york Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner. Apparently, with their in-built ink technology, these gorgeous goodies keep the hued pigments super saturated plus, the ultra-grip cap gives us the reassurance of ever-fresh formula every time you use, in which also replicates the long-lasting longevity of the product. Additionally, the 0.4mm fine tip brush serves us in defining the glorious role of making precise lines to give a complete snazzy look.

Holmenkollen – An Adventurous Paradise Calling.

Every traveller must definitely know that they should never leave home without their tickets, clothes, sunglasses, camera, luggage, hat, headphones, travel accessories, etc and so recently, I got all the things packed right in front of me and later, I headed to the airport terminal to take off to Oslo, the capital of Norway. Knowingly, Oslo being surround by Norwegian Fjords, a pretty cold place to survive, I was well prepared with my warm-hugging jackets in-hand with me throughout the trip but fortunately, with blessings from Sun God, the jackets came into a minimal use. However, well before my actual travel itinerary, I was scrolling through the internet to get some more information on the important things to be covered during my visit in Oslo.

With mighty goodness, things came in really handy after finding my hotel located quite close to the skiing spot, in the heart of Oslo, which saved a lot of my travel time, which in turn, I used for other sight-seeing purposes. With enticing clear blue skies spread all across, I proceeded to Holmenkollen with more positive and energetic vibe inside me.

28apr151_edited-1So, what to look for in Holmenkollen?

With one million visitors a year, Norway has so many features with all the boxes checked by giving us a wonderful and adventurous lifetime experience. Plus, with historic tradition of ski jumping dates back 1892, there is no wonder, this place is considered as the best known cities by visitors, tourists and globetrotter from all around the world.

  • The Ski Museum: Being the oldest ski museum globally, it beautifully portrays a skiing history of over 4000 years old prehistoric to present time and also, features a ginormous amount of archives and collections in the exhibition section.
  • The Ski Jump Tower: The highlight of this landmark is, it is open all year around, 365 days a year. Also, being newly rebuilt and opened in 2010, it is recognised as the world’s most modern ski jump and also, it is considered as the only steel ski jump in the entire world because of its built-in structure made out of 100 tons of steel, where in  the start house of the ski jump remains at an altitude of 60m above ground level. Apparently, this honourable site has been hosting world’s championships and winter olympics for years by now and also, one could go to top of the platform of the ski jump tower, the observation deck, to get an amazing 360 degree panoramic views of the whole Oslo city.
  • Ski simulator: Under the ski jump, there situated a technologically stimulated “eye-view” five minutes movie trailer, which replicates and creates a unique realistic experience, which was only used by pilots and astronauts before.
  • Northern Lights: Being located in the Scandinavian picturesque beauty, Norway is very popular for arctic-hit Northern lights and here, everyday, a film is telecasted to showcase the real lifetime experience of the hue-lit northern lights.
  • Freedom on snow: A special exhibition is exhibited here to give visitors more knowledge and details on the snowboarding and modern skiing activities.
  • Also, here exists an additional storytelling feature, which includes the adventurous expeditions of polar bears and the real exploration skills of Norwegian polar bears.
  • Souvenir shops and cafe: Having millions of tourists crowding all year around, there is no shortage of souvenir shops in this locality and they also hosts plenty of space for tourists in cafe to get them relaxed in their spare time.

For Sports lovers: 

To make your life even more adventurous and if you are a sporty kind of person, then, sky is the limit in here. This place is not only famous for skiing, it is also popular for other sports activities like abseiling and zip lining.

Abseiling: With ropes all tied and buckled up and harness held tightly on your body, you are ready for the “dreams come true” moment to explore the world of abseiling with fuss-free safe mode. This will take you adventurous route down from the ski jump tower at a height of about 60m free fall.

Zip line: As a clever sports person, one can take a ride on the zip line from the top of the ski jump to the bottom of the hill by covering a vast distance of 361m, as same route covered by the ski jumpers, to get a magnificent view of the whole area while you are zipping down the hill.

Hope you all have a lovely day!

Beauty: Sweet Scent from the Spring Garden of Flower Blossoms.

Last week, on one fine morning, I received one of my best beloved fragrances (Daisy, signature perfume from the iconic Marc Jacobs) from the online retailer by post. Then, I walked around the room and sat next to the glass-mirrored dressing table. There, sitting in front of me was the gorgeous perfume bottle, made out of solid translucent glass, crafted with fine perfection, which in return, grabbed my attention in full swing saying “have one spritz of me” and truly saying, it was such a scenic beauty of eye-catching moment.

26apr152

Look:

When it comes to the exterior of the bottle: the reflective, transparent, see-through, cuboidal-shaped, glass bottle at the bottom takes a narrowly-upward, tube-shaped structure to the top, where it gets crowned by the beautifully designed, gold-coloured, semi-spherical, metal cap which was adjoined by the various-sized, gold-budded, three-coloured flowers including pretty pink, pastel pink and pale mint, which all in turn takes the perfume to the next enviable levels.

26apr153

Scent:

Coming back to the aroma, I would say, it is a sweet-scent mix of pleasure treasure, which proceeds to the flavory amalgamation of joy and happiness, in conjunction with the richness of flowery blossoms and the real radiance of warmth beauty from the hot, sunny, summer days.

26apr151_edited-1

Fragrance notes: 

Top fresh notes: juicy apples, quince flower and freesia

Middle heart notes: gardenia, iris and peony

Base notes: cedar wood, musk and sandalwood

So, now, let me take some time off to indulge myself to take a ride through the fields of flower bouquets to get the aromatic bursts of summer fragrance in a unique, fun and vibrant way.

Fashion: Spring Galore of Pretty Pink Flowers.

From the blessings of Spring Goddess with bright sunny days, I thought what would be a better way to celebrate this beautiful episode of radiantly glowing sunshine than indulging myself with the gorgeous prints of pretty floral with pink power.

new25apr151

So, in concurrent with the latest Spring arrivals, I, myself, barged into one of my favourite shops, Miss Selfridge to find out the latest Spring beauties and by luck, I got this artistically oriented, multi-coloured, floral-printed slip dress . As seen, I must say, in this case, with an additional knowledge of “more is always better”, this Spring-floral inspired look has been beautifully portrayed with ravishing flower coloured-theme including the freshness from the blue, prettiness from the pink, brightness from the off-white, gorgeousness from the purple, essence of rose from the pinkish-magenta and alluring warmth from the black, which makes this dress, a perfect staple piece for the forthcoming hot Spring/Summer sunny days to come.

25apr152_edited-1

However, along with this dress, I was trying to figure out the best possible option for choosing the right coloured lipstick and with the matter of time, I found this utterly ultimate, berry-coloured lipstick with No.160 from Barry M Cosmetics Ltd, which matched brilliantly with one of those pink floral from the dress. In believing to have a “WOW” factor moment on my lips, concretely, this lipstick worked brilliantly and the complimentary part is, oh my!, it stayed on my lips for more than 4 hours even after consumption of food and drink. Hence, I would reckon blindfolded, that this is a best bargain hunt on the lipstick section if you are looking for a wallet-friendly lip beauty and also, the matte-effect finishing touch on the lips is an added plus point too.

25apr153_edited-1

Last but not least, when it comes on deciding the accessorizing role, I sometimes, seek to get inspiration from the recent magazines, street-stylers and online-fashion editorial sections for the latest fashion trends . So, keeping all in my mind and, to stick onto having matching combo, I grabbed these pair of earrings and bracelets from my old finds of accessories collections, which echoed marvellously with the rhythm of all-around floral and pinks.

Burj Khalifa: A Magnificent boon to Reach Sky High.

Unlike other UAE cities, Dubai is quite westernised and modern in terms of culture, food and lifestyle. So, not only foreigners, people from all around the emirates come here to enjoy their western life. For this reason, Dubai is always filled with all kinds of people and globetrotters. 24apr152 24apr151Recently, during my last visit to Dubai, I’ve been to Burj Khalifa, world’s tallest tower (with the height of 2716.5 ft) and world’s tallest man-made structure, which features an amazing highest number of stories in the whole wide world and I reckon, this stunning building is such a delight-to-watch. In addition, a remarkable experience of spacious deck, “At The Top” at Level 124 gives a fantastic eye-catching, 360 degrees angle of panoramic view to watch all the skylines, malls and including the famous Burj Al Arab, the world’s only 7-star Hotel. Moreover, if you want to explore even more, then by taking a special elevator to reach Level 148, you can reach “At The Top Sky” and there, with total fuss-free and peace of mind, you can effortlessly stroll-through the deck to watch the breathtaking views. WOW!! It’s such a splendour moment that I wish everyone should get an opportunity to watch in their lifetime. Being opted for night time view, I think I made an absolutely wise decision because the posh-notch killer views with glittery star-fled nights are like dreams come true experience and it completely made my day so special. And, also, the reality experience of watching two observation decks on the same building is like icing on the cake for me. 24apr153 24apr154 Besides, Burj Khalifa which opened in 2010, also features a tremendous in-house office spaces, fitness club, The Armani Hotel, fabulous dine-in restaurants and residential spaces to fulfil each of the visitor’s needs. However, if you have extra time, then, there is always bunch of hands-on sight-seeings to explore even more wisely. 24apr155 24apr156 24apr157 Have fun!!! Happy weekend to all!!!
