Powder Snow

Elf High Definition Powder | Target | $6.00

Hello Everyone | I am always on the hunt for the perfect powder for my skin. Having combination skin (acne, oily, dry, and dehydrated) can make it hard to find a powder that combats shine without removing natural oils that help keep skin nourished. If they are gone, my skin begins to look cakey and dry. Previously, I have been using colored powders to set my face, which don't exactly suit my skin. That is why I finally picked up this powder by ELF.

How to Make Your Own Blog Design | Creating the Perfect Base

Hello Everyone | I get a lot of questions about my blog design and how I created it. Let me just say it took a lot of time to get my skills to where they are today. I have finally gathered my intelligence and created a blog-post series talking about creating a blog design and hopefully give you skills to carry on your blogging designing career. My skills are only limited to blogger templates, so you will have to do a little more research to get the template to suite your blogging platform. I

What do you want a custom blog design for your blog? // A blog is different from a Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, etc because it is your very own piece of the internet. Right now, you could go into your blog template, wipe it out, and your webpage will be just the color white. A blog design defines your style and catches the attention of the person who comes to your blog. I am assuming you write good content, you deserve to have a nice blog design. There is no reason not to have a good blog design. Now you might be asking yourself 'A nice blog design costs too much money.' That is why I am going to help you create the perfect blog design without spending any money. Once you learn how to do html/css you won't stop, its addicting.

Before moving on let's learn some important lingo we will be referring to in this post (note: these are my definitions, not the actual definitions)..

HTML // This is what gives the basic shape of your blog design. It tells blogger where the blog header should be, where to put the widgets, etc.

CSS // This is known as the style sheet. Its job is to make your blog all pretty by adding colors, fonts, etc.

Inspect Element // Right click anything on your blog and scroll down to inspect element. This will split your screen in half revealing your webpage and codes. This is what were going to use to clean up the blogger templates and remove all the unnecessary extras to the blogger template.------important----------

View Source // Ctrl + U will give you the entire html/css of your web page. A powerful weapon that should only be used for good. ( not used today )

Blog Container // It is the white part that holds your posts, widgets, header, etc.  It is not a part of the background or the blogger navbar.

Now that we learned some basic lingo, lets move on to create your perfect base..... *CAUTION* Picture heavy post..get your bandwidth ready.

Manicure #1: Textures and Duo-Tones

Hello Everyone | Recently I attended one of my sister's best friend's wedding last Friday and I told myself that I was going to do my nails, but I did not :( I ended up doing it on Saturday because my family and I were going to the Walima (Desi Wedding) ((Desi=Indian, Pakistani, Bengali, etc)). To keep it short both the Nikkah and Willima were amazing. The bride was stunning and the bride's sister were beautifully dressed.

Shameless Laila

Hello Everyone | Its been about two weeks since I posted a blog post because I had school and I was into some pure laziness. I have been doing a lot of end-of-the-year projects that are subsequently due next week. Just taking the time to write a blog post is a great relief for my body and my mind. I have not read any posts from my favorite blogs or updated my social media. I have not even given my school fees..Last year, I think I turned my fees the day before school ended, so I am fine.
