It is rightly said that music and songs play the backbone of any movie. In olden times, it was only the songs that brought people to cinemas. The team of Chaudhry has made it possible for us and brought the songs from best singers of the modern era together. If you have paid close attention to the movie teaser and theatrical trailer and the songs released so far of the upcoming action biopic, so you must have noticed that the film has a perfect amalgamation of the best singers of not only Pakistani entertainment industry but also from the neighbor country.
Chaudhry is directed by Azeem Sajjad and Co-directed and produced by Neha Laaj under the banner of LAAJ Productions.

The complete package contains all genres of songs from qawwali to folk to a sizzling item number too.
As fas as the songs released by the movie so far, we have heard a melodious qawwali Nazar-e-Karam from the maestro Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. by far the best folk song of the year Kameez Teri Kaali by none other than Attaullah Khan Esakhelvi. A very powerful title song Lagi Par by the energetic Syed Asrar Shah and cherry on top would be the Sunidhi Chauhan’s item number Aatish Meri Beauty. Combining all these power-packed songs in a single 120-minute movie is not less than a marvel.
Speaking about the film, Neha Laaj said, “With support of Sindh Police, we have taken every step to make this movie a success. Our coming generations should remember and honor the heroes who have made sacrifices for the motherland. The producer’s idea behind this movie was to make an international impact with Pakistani films pay tribute to our hero and everyone associated with Chaudhry has contributed towards achieving this goal.

There’s always something exceptional about women who take their passions and turn them into purpose. Pursuing their dreams and goals while paving the way for others is something that we love to see female entrepreneurs do. When thinking of such women one particular interior designer stands out. The creative visionary and working mom who is doing it all and making it look seamless, Amna Wali’s interiors are unlike any other. With bespoke furniture that is unique to the customer, her creations are more than just ordinary pieces. They are particularly catered for clients and are not mass produced which sets them apart from the rest. Since everything is tailored to the client’s needs, Wali has also decided to open up her own boutique store and we are already in awe of her marvelous creations!
Amna Wali was born and raised in Karachi, Pakistan where she initially wanted to become a surgeon in her adolescence. However, as her love for the arts grew she knew that design was the right path for her. After honing in on her talents she finally decided that her passion for interiors was the strongest and enrolled herself in one of the most prestigious art institutes in Pakistan, Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture. In her 3rd year, she transferred to Kingston University in London where she graduated with Honours in Interior design. Amna Wali Design Boutique has established itself as a highly specialized provider of products and services in interior and architecture. As the founder and creative head, Amna herself, set up her boutique which has unique pieces catered to anyone who wants to explore living spaces beyond the mundane. In 2017 her brand decided to have its first pop-up shop in Karachi where a distinct variety of bespoke furniture and interiors were displayed. Ever since, Amna Wali Design Boutique has expanded its creative portfolio by redefining residential, hospitality, commercial, and retail interiors along with a range of beautiful home accessories and textiles.
Amna Wali’s interiors are full of layering, making them look grand, bold, and beautiful. Extravagance is usually her forte as her work leans towards tall ceilings, moldings, layering walls with different patterns, and furniture with all kinds of bold textures as well as colors. However, since her brand’s motto is to execute pieces and spaces catered to the client’s needs, she does not impose her own style on them completely and instead, uses their needs as a source of inspiration when designing a space. Her design boutique also does luxury interiors for anyone with an imaginative eye for living spaces. Furthermore, Amna Wali is also a mother of three and who balances her home life and her professional life while doing an excellent job at both. Being accredited for her distinguished work already, she sets an example for other women to pursue their passions while still being good mothers stating that the two are not mutually exclusive.
Amna Wali’s official design studio is finally opening up in Karachi later in May near Bukhari Commercial area, Lane 2 Phase 6 DHA. The studio is an exclusive 200 square yard building where her boutique will open on the ground and basement floor. Since we’re already in love with Amna’s designs, we can’t wait to check out her store real soon!

The leaves are turning colors, and the hottest fall makeup trends are, too! Gone are the days of this summer’s no-makeup makeup looks. Style leaders are going bold this season, from brows to eyes to lips.
Keeping makeup light for the summer makes a lot of sense. With heat and humidity being a given every time you step outside in some parts of the world, it seems pointless to spend an hour on a full face that you may end up sweating off. But now that the weather is cooler, it’s time to experiment! You won’t have to worry about the heat as you apply these electrifying looks.
Makeup looks are still trending more natural than the baked-on full-face glam looks of the mid-2010’s. Highlighting individual features—a bold brow or a bold lip—is a great way to turn up the volume without going overboard.
Don’t get us wrong—we do still appreciate a good full beat, but for everyday looks, letting your skin breathe a bit can be a great feeling. Try a tinted moisturizer with a concealer for undereye bags, red spots, and blemishes, and build the rest of your look from there.
We turned to beauty experts and celebrity makeup artists as well as makeup lovers who share their looks on social media to scout for these trends.
Below are our nine favorites. We hope you enjoy!
1. Burgundy Lip
Going with a deep lip for the fall has been a go-to for many style icons for several autumns now, and this year is no exception. Something about the deep red screams warm-and-cozy. Here, Megan Fox rocks a cool tone burgundy lip and keeps the rest of her look light and simple to let the bold lip pop.
2. Bright, Lifted Blush
This in-from-the-cold look lifts the cheekbones and makes for a more youthful, energized appearance. Apply blush higher up the cheekbones than you think, and pair with a fire-engine red lip and a simple eye look for an updated take on a classic.
3. Terracotta Eyes
Warm oranges have been all the rage lately. The Naked Petite Heat Palette offers the perfect tones for achieving a look so warm you would swear it’s still summer. Whether you go for a more graphic look like this one or a more subtle, blended look, you’re sure to catch some eyes in this sweet terracotta color.
4. Soapy, Feathered Brows
As you’ll notice in most of these trend-spotting pictures, nearly everybody is rocking a slightly different brow look than the ones we’ve see in previous years. Trendsetters are going for an enhanced natural look, with the brows brushed upwards and gelled to stay that way. Though big, natural brows have been in for a while, you’ll notice that you can see each individual brow hair, a departure from other blocky brow looks.
5. Full Wispy Lashes
One of the best ways to complement any of the looks on this list are with a beautiful set of wispy lashes, like this set from Vibrantz Cosmetics. Full lashes draw attention to the eyes and define the upper line of the eye while making the eyes look larger and more doe-like. Whether the rest of the look is neutral or avant-garde, you can never go wrong by polishing off your look with a lovely set of lashes.
6. Reverse Foxy Eye
Move over, cat eye. The foxy eye is here. By applying a dark winged eyeliner on the undereye line, you’ll achieve this sultry look. The secret: smudging out the line so it blends seamlessly into the rest of the look. It’s the perfect combination of understated and dramatic.
7. Double Graphic Eyeliner
Bold, graphic eyeliner isn’t just for editorial magazine pieces anymore. Makeup lovers all over the world are bringing this exciting new trend to the streets and rocking it during the day and at night. You’ll need a steady hand to achieve this look. Whether you stick with traditional black and white liners or branch out and experiment with bold teals, magentas, and neons, you’ll turn heads as you walk by.
8. Lilac Eyeshadow
If mint green was the color of the summer, lilac is vying for the spot for the color of the fall. This beautiful hue might remind us of spring, so it brings some much-needed vibrancy to the fall months as they start to get dreary. Pairing a pop of bright lavender lilac eyeshadow with a nude lip will bring out your eyes like crazy. Trust us.
9. Black Waterline Liner
The mid-2000s called, and they want their eyeliner back! We’ve missed you, waterline eyeliner. They mean it when they call it the waterline because you might just tear up a little bit as you apply pencil liner to your upper and lower waterlines. But don’t fret! This look is so daring and intriguing that you’ll feel powerful while stepping out.
When choosing a bold makeup trend to try this fall, consider your outfit for the day. Sometimes, pairing a bold eye looks, like the double graphic eyeliner, with a simple outfit made up of mostly staples and basics, can make hitting the streets in a look outside of your comfort zone easier.
You could also try pairing your lilac or terracotta eyeshadow looks with a lilac or terracotta monochrome outfit for a chic, high-fashion vibe. Once you start letting your wardrobe and your styling work together, you’ll be in heaven. We also recommend Vibrantz Cosmetics eyelashes and their products for makeup.
Just a reminder: Take good care of your skin as the air turns colder. Especially dry skin types should maintain a cleansing and moisturizing routine that allows your skin to maintain the same health you enjoyed when the humidity helped keep your skin hydrated. And as always, drink plenty of water!
Intermittent fasting is one of the most popular health and fitness trends. Not only does it help you to lose weight but improves overall health too.
What is Intermittent Fasting?
Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It doesn’t specify what foods you should be eating rather when you should be eating them.
Intermittent Fasting Methods
•The 16/8 method: It involves restricting your daily eating period to 8 hours and fasting for 16 hours in between. You could either skip breakfast or dinner, according to what suits you.
•Eat-stop-eat: This method involves fasting for 24 hours twice a week, for example by not eating from dinner one day until the dinner next day. It is an advanced method so it’s better if you start off with the 16/8 method first.
•The 5:2 diet: With this method, you consume 500-600 calories on two non-consecutive days of the week but eat normally the other 5 days.
All these methods would help you lose weight by reducing your calorie intake, as long as you’re not eating a lot more during the eating window.
How does Intermittent Fasting affect your body?
Intermittent fasting makes major changes to the hormone levels which facilitate weight loss and increase your metabolic rate.
It lowers the insulin levels in your body, increases the levels of growth hormone and norepinephrine (the fat burning hormone).
Additionally, it makes your immune system strong which helps your body fight inflammation.
Safety and side effects
Intermittent fasting is a very safe way for weight loss if you’re healthy and well-nourished overall. However, initially you may feel weak and your brain might not perform as well as you’re used to. This is temporary and gets fine once your body adapts to the new meal schedule.
If you have any of the following conditions, it’s good to consult your doctor before trying out intermittent fasting:
•Have low blood pressure
•Have a history of eating disorders
•Have an irregular menstrual cycle
Intermittent fasting works wonders for some people, not others. The best way is to try it out for a while and see how your body responds to this method.
