Hey luvs, we are Mahe and Raahema. We are two cousins who, despite the geographic distance that divides us, share the same love for fashion. Between living in the Garden state, NJ and the Keystone state, PA, we come across many different people with many unique styles. We are Pakistani-Americans and while we straddle two very different cultures, we find a good balance between the two. Our sense of style is influenced by our religious background as well as our culture. We will fill you in on all the things we are loving this season.xoxo.

Get Ready For Spring and Summer!

Hey Luvs! It's Raahema again, and today I am going to be sharing my "Get ready for spring/summer" plan with you. Although spring and summer are still months away, I like to start getting ready ahead of time. Enjoy!
Step 1: Moisturize
OK, so moisturizing is incredibly important during the winter and essential for having soft smooth skin during the summer. I would moisturize you entire body daily in preparation for the warmer months.
Step 2: Exercise
Exercise is very important all year round, but especially right before, and during, the spring and summer. During the spring and summer, you can't hide in big sweaters and scarfs which is why it's very important to exercise and be fit.
Step 3: Eat Healthy/ Drink Water
Going along with exercising, eating healthy is crucial in maintaining a healthy, toned body. It is also important to drink plenty of water so your skin and hair are glow.
So those are my tips on looking great during the spring and summer. I like to start these things now so that when it is swimsuit season and warm outside, I can look and feel great! I hope you enjoyed this post and leave me any comments below! Also, if you have any post that you would like to see from Mahe or me, leave your suggestions in the comments below!

Flats or Heels?

Hey Luvs! It's Raahema here with a quick question for you guys. So, I wanted to know whether you prefer flats or heels? Personally, I wear flats more often, but I still like heels because they give you some height which is something that i need. Which do you prefer? Leave your response in the comments below!

Glasses or Contacts?

Hey Luvs! It's Raahema her with a post about glasses vs. contacts. So I've had glasses since I was 5 years old (I'm about to turn 14 now) but I finally got contacts a few weeks ago! I've wanted contacts for years but was never allowed to get them until recently. Anyway, I wanted to share my preferences on the two types of eye wear, and wanted to know your thoughts as well!
Glasses: One think that I like about glasses is that i feel I see clearer. Now maybe that's just because my contact prescription is off but I do think that i see clearer with glasses rather than contacts. The difference is slight, but it's there. Another reason why I like glasses is that they're low maintenance, You don't have to worry about taking them in or or out, or cleaning them the way you do with contacts.

I love contacts! Firstly, you don't have to have something on your face. They're also comfortable and, in my opinion, better looking. Also, once you get used to them, they're pretty easy to clean and maintain!

So, what do you prefer? Contacts or Glasses? Leave your response in the comments below!

I NEED TO SHOP!!! + some videos you may have missed!

Hey Luvs, it's Mahe here blogging about shopping! I don't know what it is but in the past few days I have been wanting to shop. I have this urge to spend all of my money on clothes and makeup!! I don't what it is but sometime I just feel like being care free with my money! Thank goodness I have not gone shopping because I probably would have regretted it by now! Do you guys get these urges to shop?

Nail Trend!

Hey Luvs! It's Raahema again with a post about a nail trend that I've been seeing, and sporting, a lot right now. That trend is the ring finger trend, where you paint your ring fingers a different color from the rest of your nails.
I love this trend, and think it adds a nice touch to your average nail look. What do you think? Leave your response in the comments below!

Review! Maybelline BB Cream

Hey Luvs! Today It's Raahema here and today I am going to be reviewing the Maybelline BB Cream. Enjoy!
good coverage
price - about $9
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream
So, as you can probably tell, this is a pretty short review. For the most part I really like like this product, and think that it is perfect if you want some coverage without wearing heavy foundation. The product is a little costly though, at $8.99. However, I think that you can find the cream at walmart for $7.44 instead of the more expensive price from drugstores. (I bought it from the drugstore because I assumed that the price was the same at all stores).
I also recently did a review on the Elf Tinted moisturizer, which I hated! This product is much better quality, and I definitely reccommend it! Overall, I give the Maybelline BB Cream 5 starts!

New Year Resolutions Anyone!? & check out some new videos!

   Hey Luvs, it's Mahe here blogging about one of my New Years Relolution! Since this is a fashion/beauty blog I decided to share one of my resolutions that deal with fashion/beauty!! i have realized that from the beginning of the school year and on the weekends I typically wear the same things over and over. Not because I don't have any clothes, mostly because I like to stay comfy and relaxed in my style. Now since it is getting colder I really don't have the motivation to look cute for school. A lot of the clothes I bought for the school year I have only worn once or twice. I realized that I have so many cute clothes but I never where them. So, for one of my New Year Resoloutions I have decided that I am going to dress up and wear my cute blazers and blouses and do my hair and makeup to look cute. Even if I am just going to Target or the drugstore I am going to get dolled up not tooGLAM...but put together!! JOIN ME IN THIS RESOLUTION!!!

Health and Fitness: Hot Yoga!

Hey Luvs! So I'm sure that a lot of you have made a New Years resolution to get in shape, and I have one fun, but challenging, method to help you achieve that! Today I'm going o be talking to you about Hot Yoga.
Hot yoga is like a regular yoga class, except for the fact that it is in a 95 degree room! The heat helps you sweat which in turn helps you lose weight! I recently went to a hot yoga class with my mom and it was incredibly challenging! I am a very out of shape person and it showed during the class! The class consisted of many different sequences that we repeated throughout the class. At the end we did some less tiring exercise to "cool down." You're also not supposed to eat anything two hours prior to the class, and your supposed to bring a water bottle, yoga mat, and towel to the class with you.(to wipe off your sweat lol!) The heat actually make the class a lot harder because not only are you burning but it makes you and your mat a lot sweatier which makes it harder to do some poses.

I think that Hot Yoga is the perfect way to get in shape, and I definitely recommend it!
