ASQgenerates| Life| Getting Things Together




...

This post has been lingering in my head for such a long time. It’s just that I didn't know how to get it started. 
So today I am just going to wing it and hopefully in the end it will start to add up and make sense to me and to you.

Here to being Hopeful.

It’s been over a year since I haven't written anything on my blog and I have been in a place where I lack passion,ambition and concentration in everything and anything (I have been studying, don’t get me wrong- but it’s not the quality I demand from myself, in short I am not happy with my effort AND myself)

Trust me; it’s not the ideal place to be at.

It always come to a point where I try to do something or anything and then think to myself 
'what’s the point?' 'what’s the point?' &'what’s the point?'

Has that ever happened to you? 
Or am I just the only one?

I had this thought that everyone share their good experience and share their celebration but what about the dark parts and places? 

I have seen many courageous people share what they have experienced in their past good and bad but what about sharing them when you are in them - at the present. 

What about those times, when you are in them?

Struggling and judging yourself to the maximum.
Why don’t we share those days? 
Is it because we are scared? 
Because we don’t want to be vulnerable?
We don’t want other to think or see us as weak? 
Or we don't want to be that person who failed...

It’s a very scary place when it comes to finding yourself losing slowly in to nothing.
It’s a slow process and it’s a scary one. In your mind you know you are becoming into nothing.

When you try to do something and it’s just isn’t fun anymore or you want to do something but your mind and body aren’t with you. 
It gets hard.
Every day you have to make yourself understand on the things you are capable of doing so much more but still you just don’t want to do them or simply don’t have the energy to do it.

My purpose for writing this post is solely to get back on track, do things I use to do and use to enjoy them and not to expect anything from them rather just to stay active and sound.

Do simple things and not get caught in making life complicated.

& share, share the days that are good and bad.
It might be a one line post or a freaking long novel.
It doesn’t matter.
As long as it is something.

The one thing I do long from these posts would be to encourage anyone who is having a hard day, hard week or hard life to get up and start doing anything that they have in their mind. & to NOT think too much into it and just to do it.

Believe me while I started writing this post two hour ago all I wanted to do was to curl up and sleep, and I have been doing nothing since morning.
I really had to push myself, so if I can do it being this lazy you can do it too.

My next post will be on the things I think I will do to get started with my healthy, sound, active lifestyle.
To get quality back in my life.
Maybe that might spark some inspiration in your soul too.



& please note this is a sympathy post or to get pitied at I just wanted to get this post out there and help myself and anyone else along the road of their bottom .



 Quotation that really spoke up to me, might help you too :)

Every great adventure starts somewhere.

You can achieve anything if you put your mind to it!

Live in the now and let the future open.

The best day.

From little acorns mighty oaks do grow.



Thanks Google for letting me borrow these amazing quotation from you :) 
Well appreciated.


Thank you 

Take care

Lots of Love

Beauty | Experiment : Castor Oil for Long Eyelashes???

Hi everyone, how are you doing ?


This post has been written many many days ago ..... it just now I found it and now I am sitting editing it and  posting it :p lazy me....

3 weeks ago I saw many girl wondered on if "castor" really work and help to grow out your eyelashes.

I am a firm believer that castor oil in fact does work and grow hair out and I thought to put it to a test and record my journey to see the difference castor oil actually makes.

My main aim was to actually see the result in pictures whether if castor oil really work or is it just my mind playing games with me .

Here are my lashes before use of castor oil, in this picture I did started using castor oil 4 to 5 days ago (Started recording my lashes after seeing so many girls being curious if the castor oil works or not so.....)

Below I have put up the picture together so that you can see the difference for yourself.


BEFORE

BEFORE


AFTER


Verdict:

To begin with I am blessed with decent lashes but what castor oil do is that it  help them stay healthy, moisturized and result them growing more healthy and fuller looking.

It does make the eyelashes grow longer as you can clearly notice - my bottom eyelashes look quite fuller and longer than before.

I would totally recommended castor oil for hair growth process may that be eyelashes, eyebrows or hair on the head.

Any hair you want to grow slap that castor oil on it and you'll see result.

The result you see above was in 1 week and a half.

I hope you found this post helpful, informative and entertaining :)

Have you ever applied castor oil for hair growth or for any other purpose ?

Let me know your in the comments below I love chatting with you.

See you in my next post.

Till then

Bye :)

UPDATE : Where is ASQgenerates

Heyyy guys,

I know really really long time.....

Dont really know where to start but here i go -  

In my previous "what happened to ASQgenerates" post I mentioned that my father was sick . 

1 year and 3 months ago my father was diagnosed with cancer. 


I never mentioned this in my post as I wanted to keep this in private .


My father was a brave and strong human being and he never let his sickness get his way to living the way he wanted to live.

He kept being active till his body allowed him and he kept being strong till his last days.

In March, after battling my father pain was gone and he is now in a peaceful place.


_____

Now where I stand with my life ? 

When I started writing my blog at first I wanted to SHARE my thoughts on beauty products, hair, nails and fashion.


And when I stopped writing in the previous months it was because I didn't feel connected to these subjects. And I didnt just wanted to write for the sake of writing and getting entries done- if you understand what I mean.

Now with school and homework and new /fast phase in life it difficult for me to write the old kind of post.

To be honest Beauty, Hair and Makeup is not the cup of tea I want to drink or make right now.

My studies i.e Fashion Designing and My Collection is my main focus in life right now.

And I want to share that with you all .

I want to share my journey with you all.... My whole nine yard progress.
EVERYTHING-
want to share.

I will try to put my best effort to post beauty/ fashion post here and there... but every post won't be a beauty/hair post. 

I am sorry if this is a let down to you .... 
But it's just the thing my heart want to do....
Hope you all understand and support me in my life right now.

I love you all very very much.

Thank you 

Take care 

♥♥♥

Love

ASQgenerates Style | #MyVegasStyle | A Day at Aria Resort

Few day ago I was kindly invited from Vegas.com to join in the #MyVegasStyle challenge.

Of course I could not pass this up, I love doing fashion post and you guys seem to enjoy them also.
Also after view the Aria Resort I could not deny this opportunity just look at this place you guys....its so beautiful and luxurious.



 Aria Resort

Aria Resort Exterior





So let's hop right into these outfit that I planned according to what someone could wear when on a trip to the  very beautiful Aria Resort.

First we have the very pretty and relaxing Liquid Pool/Lounge.
Tell me its not beautiful. Ah Gorgeous.



Aria Resort-Liquid Pool, Lounge

 Aria Resort Liquid inside


For going to Liquid I chose a floral causal maxi dress with the fun accessories in combination. 

For this day I kept the makeup at the bay and wanted to keep it as natural as possible.
Nude nails with nude lips and shimmery cheek bone really would pop in the beautiful pool side.

Shades to protect those eyes and hat to protect those beautiful wavy beachy hair do.

The jewelry was chosen at the very least but as I just cant go without them I just had to stack some arm candy, studs earning with ear cuff.

A handy dandy beach bag safe from the water to store anything to might for later on the day. 

Flat strap on sandals to tie in the whole causal elegant look and you are ready to enjoy the Liquid Pool side.

Enjoy the Sun and the beautiful view, breathtaking. 




#MyVegasStyle- A Day at Aria Resort-Liquid






After Liquid the place which fascinated me was the Javier's this place looks and has a very fancy feel to it.
So royal.



Aria Resort Javiers


Aria Resort  Javiers


For the Night out I of course went for a Little Black dress. 

Paring it with minimalist but strong jewelry pieces and high top bun you are good to for a date night or a night with your friends looking as elegant as anything.

Don't forget the bold lashes with the bold red lip.

And enjoy the night , you are the Queen.




#MyVegasStyle- A Day at Aria Resort Javier's







For my last look I pick out Sage which seemed to me a very color bright fun place to dine in. More of a party place but with a elegance.


Aria Resort Sage


For this place I went for a more casual feel but still on the elegant side.

I paired a crochet cropped top with a bright red high waist pants. 

A sparkling heel with matching clutch really make this look go to the next level. 

I choose the beautiful rose gold jewelry pieces to make this look more feminine.

Bronze, gold eye-look with of course my favorite red lip make this look the bomb.com. 


#MyVegasStyle- A Day at Aria Resort Sage







This completes my take on the #MyVegasStyle challange. 

I really hope you all reading really liked the pieces I went with and how I paired them together and found some inspiration for your fancy trip.

Which look was your favorite from the above, as always let me know in the comment section below.

I will talk to you all very soon next week.

RSL Acne Be Gone Skincare System


A while back I was sent RSL Acne Be Gone skin care system but due to crazy busy schedule I was not able to sit down and write down my proper review for this product.


 But now as I have few days in my hand I am ready to review this baby for you all.

RSL Skincare line is a very affordable brand which carry skincare product. I was told to choose from the following skin care system: 


Hydra Whitewhitening cream

                      whitening face wash

Super Vitamin - 7 in 1 treatment cream

                           7 in 1 Face wash

Acne Be Gone- acne treatment cream

                           acne face wash 

I chose the Acne Be Gone System as you all know I do struggle with breakout to this date :( some people just can't have perfect clear skin, but hey we can surly try can't we ?!


About Acne Be Gone Face Wash :

My views :


Packaging :


The packaging of RSL product is very travel friendly and I really appreciate this about this product. It small and easily fit in to your bag without creating any issue. RSL Acne Be Gone come in a light baby blue and white color combination, so cute and refreshing to look at-pleasing to the eyes.




The smell : 


For me RSL Acne Be Gone face wash smelled like medicated face wash. Nothing special, not overpowering. 


For the RSL Acne Be Gone acne treatment cream smelled like again medicated cream, its does remind me of skin bleaching cream or clinique skin care line.


Price :  


The RSL Acne Be Gone face wash would cost you only RS.95 for 60ml , which would last for one month if used daily.


The RSL Acne Be Gone acne treatment cream would cost you Rs. 150 for 60ml, which would last over one or maybe two month even after regular use. Budget friendly skincare system.





Using the RSL skincare Acne Be Gone system for a whole month and I am saddened that this product just did not work for me :(


For someone with a problematic skin this product did wonder at the very very beginning .I could see my acne scar slightly fading away and I was not breaking out as much like I use to. My skin seem brighter and had a glow to it. Even my mom and grandmother noticed it.

Also when I used the face wash around my lips I didn't get any dry patches and all the dead skin didn't seem to build up.

The Acne Be gone Face Wash has a very liquid / jelly like consistency.

It doesn't have any exfoliating bead in it which I like my face wash having so applying it seem a bit off as it felt like water, like I was just rubbing water on my skin. Its has a very light in consistency.
I use the face wash with the combination on my Sigma Cleansing and Polishing tool as I am  exfoliation freak and just can't live without it.
I did try this without the Sigma Cleansing tool and it did clean my face without any problem,and its didn't dry out the skin also.

As for the RSL Acne Be Gone Acne Treatment Cream you need a pea size amount of this product and it sinks in to the skin pretty nicely.It doesn't have that oily feel to it and is also moisturizing.

Now after using this product for over a month I have to say that this product didn't do much to my skin but also gave me few breakout around my jawline :( never anywhere else but the lower portion of my face. It was like after sometime it stopped working for me and started reacting with my skin negatively. 


My last verdict:


Pros:
  • Gentle on skin and does not dry it out.
  • Removes dead skin cell without the peeling effect.
  • It doesn't cause any stinging
  • Keeps mild acne at bay
  • Give the skin a glowing look-beautiful glow *the reason I wished this would have worked for me:(*
  • Pocket friendly *2nd reason I wish this would have worked for me :(*
Cons:
  • Does not help severe acne.
  • Can cause break outs.
Where you can get RSL Product from :

This completes my review for the RSL Acne Be Gone Skincare System.
