Hello everybody! Finally I am back to blogging after a month long break. I truly missed writing and talking to you all. Also, I am in the midst of doing some lifestyle changes. I have decided to limit my spending and only buy stuff that I truly need and is versatile. This does not mean that I will stop doing outfit styling and beauty related blog posts but just limit featuring new products every other week.
I have been blogging for more than a year now and I must confess that I haven’t earned a single penny out of it. I am obviously not consistent and I totally suck at SEO. Even though I have always featured products that I absolutely love and buy on my own. I still feel kinda heavy on the inside on being yet another person on the internet promoting excessive consumption.
I am slowly transitioning into minimalism and so the subsequent blog content will focus more towards being resourceful.
Phew! that was quite a long update but now lets move towards my June favorites of year 2017
Rimi’s Favorites for The Month of June
Favorite Fashion Picks
1. Chunky Platform Sandals
This month I have got two items for my fashion favorites. First one is this pair of chunky platform sandals with diamontes on the front strap that I recently sported in my What I Wore: Combining Three Hot Summer Trends of 2017 blog post. I have worn these sandals with every summer outfit I own and they are super comfortable(not exaggerating). I bought these sandals from Liza , a Pakistani shoe brand. You can check out my Instagram page for more outfit pictures with these sandals.
2. Funky Earrings
My second fashion favorite pick are these funky heart shaped earrings in white. Aren’t these the cutest hoop earrings? I bought these from Haroons, Islamabad.
Another pair of earrings are these cute black fox ones. I bought these from Nishat and I think you can still find these online from their website. The funky pieces from their jewelry line is super cool and original. I am totally digging them.
Favorite Beauty Pick
Finally, I have found my holy grail concealer. I use this concealer to hide under eye dark circles and also to spot correct. It is a very light weight concealer and does not creases under the eyes. I might do a full review on this concealer if you want me to. I have previously done a review on Maybelline Fit me Foundation but I didn’t love it as much as I loved this concealer from the fit me range.
I ordered Maybelline Fit me concealer in medium shade from Just4Girls.pk
Favorite Ted Talk
I watch Ted Talks to fuel up my motivation to learn and get insight. I recently watched Ted Talk “The Simple Cure for Loneliness” by Baya Voce. Its a fact that with the growing reliance on social media and text messaging for staying connected, we have actually become lonelier than ever. Baya Voce offers a very simple way on how to feel more connected and fulfilled. Don’t miss watching the talk, its just 13 minutes long. It will definitely inspire you to use the tool that she has mentioned in her talk.
Favorite Lifestyle Pick: Apple Cider Vinegar
The health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar are overwhelmingly large. I specifically used Apple Cider Vinegar to treat the dead skin on my feet. Fill a basin with hot, soapy water, then add a cup of apple cider vinegar before soaking your feet in the water for at least 15 minutes. I have used this remedy couple of times in a month and it has made my feet baby soft.
I have also used Apple Cider Vinegar to treat dandruff. Mix equal parts (about 1/4 cup each) apple cider vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray onto your hair after shampooing, let sit for 15 minutes and rinse. Use it twice a week
Favorite Music Picks
I heard Secrets by The Weeknd last month and I still can’t get over this song
The second one is “Lust for Life” by Lana Del Rey ft The Weeknd. The lyrics of this song are very deep and heart breaking.
So thats that for the monthly favorites. Have a great weekend ahead ! xoxo
