Beauty: NYX Soft matte Lip Cream in  ‘Morocco’

Orange lips are a summer staple for me, and this matte Jet Sport color is just the ticket. It dries matte but still retains a creamy texture on the lips. No wonder these lip cream are so hyped about.

Fashion: Nefer bag and my current frames

Nefer is the sweetest designer out there. When I saw this tan suede satchel I just knew I had to have it. It is spacious enough to hold all your crap and still looks chic. You can check her out nefersdesigns

I broke my frames in the US and was using a backup pair that looked so outdated, it had diamantes for crying out loud *shudder* so you can imagine why I love my new glasses that have brought me back into this century.

Music: Style by Taylor Swift

I am a listen-to-one-song-on-repeat-for-six-months kind of gal and also due to reasons involving extreme laziness it is the only song on my phone so…I am obsessed.

Movie: Inside Out

I love everything Pixar puts out, yes even when they fail *coughCarscough*. Inside Out was just classic Pixar, adult fare with a gooey, childlike heart, that just fills you up with love. Add the voice talents of Amy Poehler, Bill Hader and Mindy Kaling and you’ve got a perfect movie.

TV Show: Orange is the New Black

I am a sucker for prison narratives so when this show was all the rage in 2013 I binged the first season in a week and the second in a weekend. The third season, while not having an overarching villain like in the previous two, worked with its focus on small, intimate moments. The best feature of this show is the various inmates’ backstories that show us how various moments in their lives made them take decisions that landed them in prison. You NEED to see this show.

Random: New York Cafe

I went for iftari for a friend’s birthday and since I have been back from the states I want to try ALL the new Karachi eateries. The chili burger was quiet tasty though not as spicy as I would have liked.

Beauty: Color Pop Eye shadow in ‘I Heart This’

KathleenLights on Youtube is my new obsession. We both love sparkly gold makeup. She got me hooked on Color Pop cosmetics and this eyeshadow has crazy sparkle. Love it.

Fashion: Silver Necklace from H&M
I saw Ingrid Nilsen wearing a silver collar necklace so I bought a silver collar necklace. No really, Atiya found it at H&M and I took screenshots from her video to make sure it was the exact same thing.
Going to my corner of shame now.

Book: The Martian by Andy Weir

I had already started this book before the movie trailer came out. Matt Damon looks like he was borrowed from the set of Interstellar. It’s like part 2 where Dr Mann destroys some more space things. But seriously, jokes aside the book is amazing. It has its scienc-ey moments but they are never boring. I hope Ridley Scott will do it justice.

Music: Blackbear – 90210 ft. G-Eazy (Matt DiMona Remix)

Love the original, love the remix.

Movie: Inside Out

Agree its your favorite too if you were a weeping mess during the whole film. Definitely one of my favorite Pixar movies.

TV Show: Sense 8

Everyone was talking about it so I watched it. On the third episode now.

Podcast: Inside Out, And Moms And Dads In Love – NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour (itunes)

The first half of the podcast where they talk no gush about the brilliance of Inside Out had me smiling and agreeing to every word.

Random: Alaskan Supreme at Dunkin’ Donuts

I am developing a taste for coffee. There have been tons of hits and misses in my search for good coffee but the Alaskan Supreme cold coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts is a winner.
