My kind of “DETOX” ✨🍦✨ Ever since I’ve seen pictures of charcoal ice cream on instagram , I’ve wanted to travel to those places just for the sake of ice cream ( really only went to New York only for Serendipity 🤭 ) but fortunately I only had to drive five minutes (not counting the horrid construction delay🙄)for this one because now Lahore has freshly made , preservative free , healthy , detox charcoal ice cream !!!! ✨🤭✨ Who needs detox shakes when you can have a detox ice cream ! Am I right or am I right ! 🤭 I remember studying about activated charcoal for detoxification in forensic medicine but I never imagined the ice cream form would taste this good 🤭 You’ll have to taste it yourself to really experience it but to me it tasted like an unsweetened chocolate 🍫 but in an oddly palate cleansing way 🤷🏻♀️ Oh and I was the fourth one to have the 23k gold version and they told me they were only going to do a 100 of those cones so better rush to @thesweetfactorypk !!! ✨🍦✨p.s while you’re there do try the Nutella ice cream on my recommendation ! Coming from a person who isn’t a fan of Nutella , this was super creamy and very satisfying !! ✨🍦✨ ( I got the strawberry and pistachio flavours packed for later and my mom just asked me why these aren’t melted at all ; that can tell you a lot about the ingredients ! )✨ What’s your favourite/ go-to ice cream place ✨🤭✨ #icecream #charcoalicecream #23kgoldleaf #detoxicecream #detox #dessert #indulgence #eatingout #summer2018 #timeout #lovelife #lifestyleinfluencer #lahore #review #eatery #pakistan #foodie
Throwback: International Women's Day exhibition
23.-29.3., Arabian Court, One&Only Royal Mirage
Truly a MUST SEE exhibition. Zaahirah Zabeen Muthy, founder of Zee Arts, curated a wonderful exhibition with women from all over the world. Many artist travelled for this event to Dubai. The exhibition "Press For Progress" was inaugurated by Sheik Butti bin Suhail Al Maktoum. The high quality artworks, the very elegant venue with its outstanding hospitality and the extraordinary mix of dignities, high society, art lovers and artists gave this evening a very special and magical flair.
So happy and proud to have been a part of it <3

I have to be honest. This part of gilding makes me nervous. I was going to do a video of applying the gold to the instacoll but I was shaking so much that I almost knocked the gold off of the backing! So, I video taped the part where I use the side of a Qtip and gently burnished the gold. You can see the gold adhere to the instacoll and brighten up a bit. It is a more flat gilding than raised gilding. Next time, I will do a raised version and try to get a process video together for you. .
😐 The lighting is not very good and I need to work on finding better options for photography. If you have any questions, please leave then in the comments below! Thank you! 💖
👉🏻 Next up, filling in with gouache! .
