September 2016

Outfit of the day :)

So, nowadays gown is my new favorite. I am like crazy about gowns, as they are pretty comfortable and also very modest. 🙂

 I bought this gown from Korean online based shopping site, G market. Took 9900 Korean won. Actually it was from him, I didn’t buy it. 😛

Like I said before, Bengali people love wearing colorful dresses, which is another reason why I love this gown. The coat was from H & M, during a sale, also 9000 won.  And, this is in front of my university gate. 😀 And it was a candid one -_-

I love wearing gown with coat which makes a very formal looking combo but it is kinda difficult wearing coat in this humid weather of september. :/

This one is taken during lunch time, at Mom’s touch. One of my favorite places in Korea for burgers and fries. If you ever come here, must try their french fries, they are the best in the town! ❤

These are taken at NC mart. I almost go everyday in NC mart, because it’s just beside my university. It is fun to check out all those lovely clothes, bags and shoes when you are feeling down and stressed with all the research. 🙂

So, that’s all for today! Hope you enjoyed the post! ❤

10 minutes cut crease

My friends are asking for a video tutorial for a long time but I was never brave enough to post a video of me doing makeup, where I make so many weird faces to make things easier to apply 😐
But finally I was able to make one, which is not the ‘excellent kind’ type, but this is my first try anyways. 😳

Now before you start watching, I want to apologize for the bad lighting quality of my room, which making the color look very light. I added two photos here, which were taken at daylight and unedited for clear understanding. 🙂

Also I am using the front camera of my mobile here as the place where I keep my mirror doesn’t have any suitable position for putting up my camera in tripod. I swear I will work on that later!

This is a 10 minutes cut crease tutorial when you want a simple yet very elegant makeup 😉 For this look I used Beauty Treats 130 color palette, Tony moly gel eyeliner & It’s skin power perfect exotic mascara 🙂

And here’s the tutorial- (please don’t laugh, please, please, pleaseeeee!)

I am not adding anything about my base and etc but if you want to know anything you can always ask me. 🙂

Have a happy weekend everyone!! ❤

When a song describes what you are feeling

First of all, a big, big, biggest SORRY, for staying too long out of blogging! I have three courses these semester with some serious as hell course professors, and also I am like dying to find out a way to survive in the field of the researchers! 😦 We had 5days long vacation of Chuseok last week, visited some nice places and fellow Bangladeshis Sunchon and Gwangju! That’s the reason, why I’ve been away for two weeks! 😦

Anyways, here I am, IN SHA ALLAH, I’ll be regular again. 🙂

I have no idea, if you guys do it too, but I believe for every moment, there’s a particular song. And not just once, but these song proved more than once that they are explaining myself to me.

  • “Until you were gone” by The Chainsmokers with Tritonal feat. Emily Warren.

I’ve been a great fan of Chainsmokers for too long though! I am like in love with their every song. But this particular song of them is kinda underrated, I think. 😦

There’s a saying, when you are happy, you listen to the music, but when you are sad you listen to the lyrics! I always love the song with nice lyrics. So, am I sad always? LOL nah 😉  So, let’s get back to the song!

But the taste turned bitter
So I pulled the trigger
Not so easy to move on
I guess I should have known

Not so easy to move on, I guess I should have known! Gosh, how true that is! After every argue, every misunderstanding, no matter how much you want things to go back the way they were, it won’t! Some spots are permanent, you can’t ever remove them.

I was always told that only time would heal the pain
And even though it’s been so long, it still hurts just the same

It still hurts just the same! Yup, it does. We don’t laugh at the same things repeatedly, but we cry over the same things! It’s funny and it’s ironic! Not so easy to move on.

Moving in here, changed a big part of my life. I was relieved & relaxed, you don’t have to worry much when you live with your parents. But when you start your own family, you know things are never gonna be the same. From the simplest task of selecting which meal you will be putting on your table today, now, you are the one who has to take the responsibility, you are the one who needs to think how he/she’s gonna manage all the expenses.

  • “Big girls cry” by Sia.

I may cry, ruining my makeup
Wash away all the things you’ve taken
And I don’t care if I don’t look pretty
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking

Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking. True.

  • Sia’s “Alive”.

I suddenly realize there’s too many facts about me, which was unknown even to myself! Like the fact that, I keep on shaking and trembling with palpitations when I’m excited emotionally. Even when I’m happy, even when I’m sad. Physically I am kinda vulnerable too sometimes. I stay awake night after night, fighting with all the demons in my head. But like always, I wake up every morning hoping for the best! And I’m still alive! Thanks to ALLAH!

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I’m still breathing
I’m alive

Cry into your pillow, that’s the thing didn’t change at all. For some reasons, I cry over little things every time. But is everything actually as little as they say?

See, how many lines I had to write, where these small part of lyrics, explaining me and myself! That’s what I love about music! It’s like you put on your headphone and someone else from another world saying what you need to say.

A big shout out to all the musician and singers out there for making our life much easier and lively for us!

Bye everyone! Will be back soon! ❤

Cross cultural awareness program: one of my best experiences in Korea :)

Every semester, Busan Board of education arranges a program, where international students visits schools of the city, and give a presentation about their country and culture. The authority also provides guidelines and transportation cost to each presenter. Usually they made a database with all the applicants and give the applicants contact info to the corresponding school teacher, and the teacher lets you know later when’s the time and how you can get there.

So, last semester, when I came to know about this program,I really wanted to apply. But truth is, I always had a stage phobia. I had never done anything like this before. I was too shy, too introvert from the puberty stage. I always skipped things like gathering and even attending a concert. They were all too much for me. I always have had my very own world. Where there is no crowd of people to make me uncomfortable. lol 😛

So, what changed my mind? Like I said before, here in Korea, I have a really small world of people with whom I can interact. I wanted to have something outside. And also, I wanted to know Korean kids about my country. I wanted to have the honour of presenting my country. ❤

Till now, I have attended two schools. One is elementary and another is a private girls’ high school. When you are a cross cultural awareness program volunteer,  not only you have the honour of presenting your country but also you have the fun of watching the kids and teacher’s expression hearing things they are unfamiliar to, about your culture and country.

I always feel very proud to introduce kids and teachers to the pride of country, Cox’s Bazar, the largest sea beach of the world (125 km approximately), Sundorban, largest mangrove forest of the world and home of Royal Bengal Tiger, which is also another pride of my country. 🙂 And of course hearing that their expression will cheer you out more. Usually, Korean People use a long “Haaaaaaaa” expression, for expressing their surprise or appreciation. Which is adorable! ^_^

Or, the fact that we wear Shari in different ways. Or, the different rice cakes we make!  Rice cakes are known as PITHA in bengali. They are also very interested to know about the bengali words, fonts and also the counting system.

They also are amazed by colorful bengali weddings. When I show them my wedding pictures, they can’t even believe it’s me in red shari! HA HA 😀 We surely use a lot of makeup in a wedding, because there’s too many yellow lighting in the program hall, and we want ourselves to look good in camera. The most surprising thing for them was knowing about arranged marriage. They don’t get how can I marry a man knowing only for 10 days! lol 😀

Smashed fruits with spices, putting raw flowers in bun, or kids keeping new dress hidden till eid day because it would get old if someone else sees it, colourful celebration of 1st day of the bengali new year, beautiful Saint martin’s island, I like the way they look at me when I tell about these. Most importantly when they hear about the 9 months long liberation war we had, for an independent country and our language movement in 1952 for which UNESCO announced 21st february an International Mother Language Day, they give me the look of honour and respect, I feel very proud.

I forgot to mention, the kids love wearing shari too! And, both the time I made “Potato Chops” for them as I wanted them to know how our foods taste like. IN SHA ALLAH, the next time I go in other school, I will take some Bangladeshi snacks there, too!

I know for some people, it’s nothing! But for me, who has not done a really productive things in her life, it is very important & significant to let kids know about her country. And, when I’m up on the stage there, I know it is a big responsibility to tell about the things of country properly, but also it is the biggest honour of my life to be the one who represents her country in a foreign land. :’)

Basic beginners makeup : part 1

When I first started makeup, I always looked for something cheap. I never took a look at the brand or quality! Because I was a student and I never wanted to put any pressure to my parents for the things I can live without. Even though when I’m graduated, I had to wait 6months for a job. I remember the day, I first had my salary. I bought a cc cream, a compact powder, a contour and blush kit, a powder brush and a sunscreen, spending 3000Taka or 39$, when my salary was less than 200$. :’)

ALHAMDULILLAH, ALLAH provided me much ability nowadays and I can buy a lot more better products than I used to buy before. But, if you are just a beginner, it is really difficult to choose things what are you gonna buy first! Makeup products are really expensive, unless you are some rich girl, buying 4-5 makeup things at a time, is quite difficult.

For so many days, my friends are asking me to write some posts about beginners makeup. I will divided this topic in some parts. For the first part today, I will share the things you can start with, as a beginner , I mean a beginners makeup kit!

So, let’s start!

  1. A really good moisturizer, that suits you. If you have dry skin, go for creamy ones. And, if you have oily skin, look for some water based moisturizer or lotion.
  2. A sunscreen. Usually, Korean brands are very famous for their quality. So, here I try to something new when the older one finishes. But, If you have sensitive skin, try Bioderma or Neutregena.
  3. If you are a beginner, start with bb creams rather than foundation. Because, for using a foundation, you must need to use a primer and a color corrector first. I am not saying, they don’t require during using bb creams, but bb creams, specially Korean bb creams have a reputation of reducing the imperfections of our skin. They can do the the 60% job of primer and color corrector. You can always buy them later, anyways!
  4. For the powder, I would say, choose compact powder instead of a loose powder to begin with. Because if it’s summer time, loose powder goes away with sweating and etc, and when it’s winter, it can dry your skin out.
  5. When it comes to eye-shadow, I would suggest to buy some dark chocolate-copper or pink shades first. Because they are neutral, you can use them almost everywhere. Dark chocolate-copper shadow can also be used for contouring.
  6. For eye-liner, buy the auto pencil eye-liner first. To become a pro with eyeliner, learn to draw your eyes with a pencil liner first. Then you can go for liquid or gel eye-liner.
  7. There’s no option for Mascara, you have to buy that one.
  8. You don’t need a eyebrow kit actually. Any eyebrow pencil can do the job, with proper brushes.
  9. Pink lipsticks! They go just fine with everything.
  10. And some nice brushes.

And there you go! Your makeup kits are ready to begin with!

 

All these pictures are collected from internet. 🙂

So, that’s all for today! Good night people! ❤

Glow with silver 😁

So, this weekend while I was going out with my husband and I decided to put some silver on my eyes. This is not entirely something I came up with, last year, one of my friend took a silver eye makeup look during her brother’s wedding reception program from some parlor and MASHA ALLAH she was looking really pretty. Mine is a lot more simpler and less gorgeous and of course I am not half as pretty as her. Lol :p

So, here’s how it came out:

Here’s few details of the look:

  1. I have used both contour stick and bronzer here.
  2. I didn’t apply compact powder on my whole face. For setting the contoured area, I used bronzer. I know, it’s a bit old. But I have used like this for the first time.
  3. For this kinda eye makeup scotch tapes are handy. First of all add the main color in this case, the silver one, put some dark color on the corner and put your desired color on crease which is purple here. Highlight your brow line.
  4. Use gel eyeliner for heavy makeup like this.
  5. If you want to make it look simple use some natural highlighter like bronze color.
  6. I had to use 3 lipsticks for this lip color.

The focus of this look was my eyes, I tried to make the base look natural.

Though the selfies making it look like the base is a gorgeous one. For clarification, I am adding one full picture of me here.

This one is a edited picture though! And yeah, that’s my husband with me here 😍

So, that’s all for now! Bye!!

Lunch today: Fried rice, Saucy spicy chicken & Potato chop

DSCN9971

The main food of Bangladesh is Rice. We usually take rice two times a day. At lunch and dinner. Rice is the main dish in the meal, but we have other side dishes too. At least two side dishes containing protein sources like fish or meat and one vegetable source. We eat a lot rice, which is not very healthy anyways, but we kinda like it, you know? 😉

So, today my husband wanted some rich food for lunch. It was 2 pm then, we were already late for lunch. So, I needed to do something quick. Like I said before, I’m always in kind of hurry when it comes to food. lol :p

Fried rice is not actually bengali dish though. But I made it in a bengali way. The ingredients you need are:

  1. 1 and a 1/2 cup of cooked rice with salt
  2. Mixed vegetables: 1/2 cup
  3. Shrimp: 2 tbsp
  4. Chicken breast: 1 tbsp
  5. Olive oil 4 tbsp
  6. Egg
  7. Half cup onion cut in to pieces
  8. 1 big green pepper
  9. 2 tsp soy sauce
  10. 1 tsp ginger & garlic paste
  11. Salt as your taste

Heat the pan with oil and put everything without rice. Cook them well. And finally add rice and cook for 5-7 minutes and you are done.

This saucy spicy chicken is the easiest recipe you will ever have and hell yeah it’s tasty too! So, here’s what you need:

  1. 5-6 pieces of chicken
  2. 1 green pepper
  3. Half cup onion cut chopped in pieces
  4. 1 tbsp ginger & garlic paste
  5. 1 tsp chili powder
  6. 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  7. Quarter tsp coriander
  8.  Salt
  9. Half cup tomato sauce
  10. 2 tbsp chili sauce
  11. 4 tbsp barbecue sauce
  12. 2 tbsp soy sauce
  13. 1/2 tsp vinegar
  14. 1 tsp lemon juice

First put oil in your pan and heat it well. Then put the chicken pieces and fry them well on both sides. Then take the chickens out of the pan, and put everything else except vinegar and lemon juice. Cook them all for like 5 minutes. Now, put the chickens. Few minutes later, add lemon juice and vinegar. Cook it in a medium heat.

I’m not sure if you guys ever heard of “Chop”, which is nothing but a kebab. A really famous one in Bangladesh. To make a chop, you need some smashed potatoes, add some onions, peppers, spices and salt of course. Make small balls out of them and dip it in beaten eggs first and roll in the bread crumbs and deep fry it in oil. Making chop is really easy one. You can always add others vegetables, fish or meat in a chop. And trust me, the taste is something you will never forget! ^_^

It’s not like we bengali people always eat this kind of unhealthy food. But, it is kinda tradition of making some good food during a holiday or weekend, when every member of the family stays home. 🙂

So, that’s all for today! Bye!! ❤ ❤
