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.

Fashion in Another World:OOTD

Hey luvs, its mahe here bloggin' about one of my cultural outfits that I wore a couple of days ago. If you look back to some of my other cultural outfit of the day posts; the outfits I wore were a little more dressy. This Shalwar Kameez I have on is very casual. The shirt I have on is actually Raahema's moms, it is the gorgeous pinky peach color with navy blue piping around the neckline and sleeves. There is this scrunched up button detail on the sleeves as well. I paired this long shirt with the ruched white skinny pants that I got from Pakistan last summer. I didn't wear any shoes or jewelry because I was just in the house! Thanks for reading!!

Summer Beauty Secrets!

Hey Luvs! It's Raahema here to share some of my summer beauty secrets/tips! As you all know, the warmer months are just around the corner and with them comes a greater need to take care of your skin, hair, nails, and lips. So, in this post I am going to give you guys some tips on looking and feeling great during the Spring and Summer.
During the Summer, and even in the spring, it gets pretty hot and humid. That is why I recommend wearing lighter and waterproof makeup. For example, skip the foundation and use a tinted moisturizer instead. Also, go for waterproof mascaras and eyeliner to fight the sweat. I would also moisturize your skin daily and wash it with a gentle cleanser. Lastly, don't forget sunblock!
For your hair, I definitely recommend washing it with a good shampoo and conditioner. I would also skip the straightener and look for some low-heat hairstyles, like ponytails and top-knots.
For your nails, I would make sure that you pay more attention to your cuticles. And of course, have fun with bright colors!
During the summer, I would make sure to invest in a good lip balm. My favorite are the Babylips ones by Maybelline. I would also avoid heavy lipsticks and let your lips breathe a little during the hot summer days.
So, what are some of your summer beauty secrets? Leave your response in the comments below!

My Favorite Healthy Snacks!

Hey Luvs! It's Raahema here with a post about some of my favorite healthy foods and snacks. In the past I put up another post on healthy eating, as well as one on exercise so go check those out!
Berries, Berries, Berries!
Berries, in my opinion, are delicious snacks that provide lots of nutrition! My two favorites are strawberries and blueberries, but any kind would work to keep you healthy and fit!
Yogurt is also a great, healthy snack to eat. I recommend the Yoplait yogurt, but any brand is fine. Yogurt is also a wonderful substitute for Ice Cream.
Cheese is a wonderful and delicious way to add some dairy into your diet as long as you don't overindulge. Recently, I have been obsessed with the Babybel Cheese. This delicious snack is great to munch on between meals, and is only 50 calories!
So, what do you think about my healthy snack picks? What are some of your favorite healthy foods? Leave your responses in the comments below!

It is a pink shear top with black sequence on the shoulders. This shirt has a tie at the bottom so u can cinch it in at the waist. I paired this shirt with some black skinny cargo jeggings also from TJMaxx and the brand is indigo Rein. The shoes I chose to wear this outfit happened to be some black sequence flats that I purchased from Target!

Spotlight Shoe: Spring Pick!

Hey Luvs! It's Raahema here with another edition of the mini series, "Spotlight Shoe!" Today's Spotlight Shoe is a shoe that I think is perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer months!

This beuatiful pair of hot pink wedges retail for $19.99 at Payless. The shoes are very versatile and can be dressed up or down. You can easily wear these shoes to school or work with some skinny jeans and a simple top. For a more dressy look, add a cute sundress! The heel also isn't that high which makes walking much easier and more comfortable. Also, the shoe is perfect to add a pop of color to your outfit and start off spring with a splash!

So, what do you think about my spring spotlight shoe pick? Would you wear the shoes? Leave your responses in the comments below!

Mini Haul!!

Hey luvs today I have a haul post! I have never done one of these before, so I thought I would, since I went to the mall with my my mom yesterday! Let's get started!!

I guess I will start off with shoes! Jcpenny was having and amazing shoe sale, therefore my mom and I thought we would take advantage of the opportunity!  The first pair I got were some cobalt blue velvety flats with a strap of silver studs going down the middle! These were so unique I had to get them! Plus they were on sale for only 5 bucks!! STEAL!
brand: Arizona

The next pair I picked up were gold sequenced loafers! These were so adorable. They were on sale for $10!
Brand: cosmopolitan

Also from jcpenny I got to pair of super skinny printed jeans. These were on a super amazing sale, $5 each!! I love these so much because pattern pants are definitely a current trend! But I also love the fact that these prints aren't super in your face!

Lastly from jcpenny I bought a faux leather, three quarter length jacket that is super edgy and cute. The brand of this is jacket blazer type thing is Ming by Mango.

A shopping trip wouldn't be complete without buying something basic and boring! From Macy's I bought these Levi super skinny corduroy black pants!

So that was my mini haul! I hope you guys enjoyed, comment below if you have recently bought some clothes on a super sale!!
I'll talk to you guys later!!

Favorite season fashion??

Hey luvs! It's raahema here and I was wondering what season is your favorite fashion wise? Although I love all the fashion for the seasons, I think mine would have to be fall. I love fall because you can wear both warmer and cooler pieces and I love the brisk feel of the season and fashion. The reason my favorite is fall over spring is because I feel like the spring you transition more to cooler pieces like sandals and shorts where as in the fall everybody breaks out their boots and sweaters. Overall though, I love all the seasons and their respective fashion!

What season is your favorite? Leave your response in the comments below!
