Review - Paramount Fine Foods Brings Lebanese Food To Pakistan






.

Whenever a new restaurant comes to town, we all love to visit it with our family and friends to taste its new cuisine. A few months back, an international food chain Paramount Fine Foods has opened its restaurant in Karachi. The food chain already has its outlets in Canada and USA. Its specialty is offering authentic and remarkable Lebanese and Middle Eastern food in a cozy atmosphere.

One fine afternoon, we visited this new restaurant with our friends for lunch. The decision to try the food of Paramount Fine Foods was turned into an amazing experience because we liked the comfortable atmosphere and enjoyed a super yumlicious lunch.


Let’s have a look at the menu of Paramount Fine Foods. The Hummus and Pita bread was really a great starter to warm up for some great Middle Eastern dishes and desserts. Hummus is very popular recipe around the world and Paramount has added more taste to it by combining it with fresh Pita bread that enhances the flavor of hummus.


The Zaatar Manakeesh was another flavorsome dish. This was very different and unique taste. It is a thin crispy dough with the combination of different herbs. 


The highlight of the menu was mixed Grilled Platter. There were many tasty things arranged on platter, for example, the BBQ beef and chicken, falafel, Kafta, Sheesh-tawouk with salad and Tahini sauce. It was the best grilled meat that we have ever tasted.  


The Saj wrap and potato fries with fresh salad garnishing was one delicious dish that we liked the most. The marinated and grilled shrimps were also very tasty, you must order it for lunch or dinner. 



Paramount Fine Foods has a vast variety of desserts. You will fall in love with the wide range of tempting sweets like Baklawa and Kinafe, all displaying in glass showcases. The taste of different Baklawas is unique and the accurate amount of sweetness made them simply outstanding.


The menu also includes hot beverages like tea, coffee, cappuccino, cafĂ© lattee and cold beverages includes mango juice, cocktail juice, strawberry juice and paramount special. We ordered plain water bottles because “Paramount Water Bottles” has some incentive of charity, with each order of water bottle Rs 5 is donated to Dar –Ul-Sukoon.

We would recommend that you should visit Paramount Fine Foods with your family and friends for the fresh delicious and healthy food. 

Rating:

There is no doubt that this Paramount Fine Foods is a must-go restaurant, so we are giving it 5/5.

How To Be Gorgeous This Wedding Season






.

All of us want to have a distinct style and stunning new look for the wedding functions. From dresses to matching bangles and from jewelry to stylish sandals, we all spend a lot of time, energy and money just to create our own unique individual style for Mayoun, Mehndi and Shaadi functions.

After this tiresome exercise, finalizing the makeup and three special hairstyles for three different functions is another difficult task. Trying new makeup trends is pretty easy as compared to new hairstyles. The reason is simple, new hairstyles require lots of styling and artificial hair products that make hairs weak, dull, dry and ultimately it becomes impossible to manage them. So, many of us feel contented with our one typical old hairstyle for every other occasion. 

We are quite sure that you people also have such feelings about your hairs. However, there is a secret for managing this problem; and we will reveal it at the end of this blog. To make it more interesting for all of you, there will be some hints between the lines about this secret thing. 

So, just relax and stop worrying about your joras (dresses), makeup and hairstyles this wedding season, because we have some tips and solutions for you.

Mayoun

We all know that Mayoun is a traditional function with yellow and orange color themes. So, go for some traditional dresses with modern fusion. Make a dress in contrasting colors of yellow, orange, red or shocking pink. You can pair a long flared shirt carrying a border of jamawar patti work with a choridaar pajama and a gotta patti dupatta. You can also have a more modern look with a Jamawar or banarsi pant with a short sleeveless shirt and long coat.



A light and soft makeup look is perfect for a mayoun function. Do wear matching bangles and large polki earrings to complete your look. A simple loose side braid wrapped with flowers enhances the overall mayoun dressing.

Mehndi

Mehndi is another colorful and fun filled event which includes lots of music and dancing. A traditional Gharara, Sharara and Lehenga is a perfect choice for a lively function. A short blouse or short shirt can be paired with these flared styles. If you are going to have an embroidered blouse or shirt, than keep your flared skirt plain. You can make your dress more attractive by adding multi-colors in blouse or dupatta.



Wear a bright lipstick and glittery eye makeup with a well-defined eye liner to compliment your dress. For mehndi function, do not tie or make a braid, instead go for a long loose curls with a stone studded matha patti; it will give you a very glamorous and trendy look.

Shaadi

It is a big-day; everything should look perfect and attractive. Your dressing should reflect your own unique style. A long velvet gown with embroidered neckline and borders looks dreamy for the shaadi function. You can also wear long sleeve zardozi short jacket over a sleeveless flared shirt or a maxi.


Shaadi makeup should be more glamorous than mehndi. Go for a smokey eye makeup with bold lipstick shade and eyeliner. Add a touch of shimmer to your makeup. An enchanting side swept long hairs with loose curls will make you a center of attraction. Do add a pear and diamante hair clips or slides.  

  

Have some more ideas of creating beautiful looks from Hania Aamir, who is looking absolutely gorgeous in this Sunsilk Thick and Long ad. She is flaunting some trendy dresses by designer Sania Maskatiya and Nomi Ansari and superb hairstyles that you can recreate at home. 

Now, let us reveal the big secret! 

We all know that a good quality shampoo and conditioner helps in achieving manageable hairs. Sunsilk’s new Thick & Long shampoo is enriched with Keratin yoghurt complex that provides all the essential nutrients for hair growth. It is an ultimate formula for healthy thick and long hairs that will help you in picking any hairstyle of your choice for any occasion.

Review - Essence XXXL Shine Lip Gloss - 37 Miss Watermelon






.

Lip-gloss works wonderfully and gives an attractive pampered look to your lips, especially if it is properly used on a lipstick or directly on lips; in both ways a lip gloss enhances the overall effect.

Some days back I started using an Essence lip gloss and my first impression was “not bad at all”. Actually I have gone through some bad reviews about it, so I was a little bit confused. But then I decided to give it a try and have my own experience with this lip gloss.

So, here I am sharing my review of Essence XXXL Shine Lip Gloss - 37 Miss Watermelon with all of you.

The Brand Claims: 

Essence cosmetics are quite affordable and can be purchased from any shopping mall. The drugstore brand has a long range of beauty products including eye makeup, foundations, creams and all kind of lip accessories.


Our Verdict:

The XXXL Shine Lip Gloss (37 Miss Watermelon) by Essence is in pinkish shade, a true watermelon color with a tint of shine and shimmer. This subtle shade is pretty beautiful as it provides a very refreshing look.

The packaging is an usual long transparent cylindrical tube with a tight cap. The applicator is a long one with a sponge tip that picks the right amount of the lip gloss, and helps in applying it in one swipe with an even look.


It works greatly if applied over a matte lipstick, as it adds a tad of silken polish to a dry matte look. It can be used directly on lips without any lipstick and looks good.

The formula of Essence XXXL Shine Lip Gloss is smooth and creamy but not very sticky. It has a normal consistency with moderate thickness that feels good on the lips. It can perfectly moisturize your lips.


There is a fruity fragrance that smells good. The staying power is not very good as it stays for just 1-2 hours and than you have to apply it again. This is the down side of the product.

Rating: 


I would recommend it to all of you because it is a nice lip gloss to add in your vanity.

Review - Dove Silky Nourishment Body Cream






.

Silky and soft skin is everyone’s dream but it becomes a difficult task to maintain the softness of skin in winters. Dove has come up with a brilliant formula to resolve the problems of dry skin especially in winters.

Dove’s Silky Nourishment Body Cream is the ultimate moisturising cream that leaves you with nourished and silky soft skin. It contains exclusive Deep-Care Complex with skin natural nutrients that comforts the dryness and gives you a more beautifully radiant soft skin.


The formula has Petrolatum, Paraffinum Liquidum, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Glycol Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, and rich essential oils, which gradually improve the condition of skin, by starting deep down moisturizing.

Our Verdict:

The Dove cream is oil free and its consistency is very much light in weight, means it does not feel heavy on skin. The consistency is neither too thick nor too thin. The cream is good for its deep absorbency quality. Once applied, the skin remains hydrated for approximately six to eight hours. It is an ideal product not only for winters but it also works wonderfully during summers.


For the maximum best results, use Dove cream on daily basis. The regular Dove skin care routine will leave you with a silky smooth skin. The mildly scented Dove cream is appropriate for all over body use.


Packaging:

The 300 ml white plastic container packaging is enough for a single person to use it for nearly two months. The tight lid packaging is not easy to carry in a hand bag, but as the result is enormously good, you can not leave it at your home. So, use a small makeup container to fill it with Dove cream and carry it with yourself where ever you are going.

Availability:

It is easily available every where and the price is very affordable.

Rating:

We recommend Dove’s Silky Nourishment Body Cream because of its good absorbency and non greasy formula.
