The BIG Move!




Hello my lovely reader!

.......I am getting tons of requests daily by my blog's loyal readers for makeup related tutorials,...some are requesting to make YouTube videos..... Some of you are sending personal messages about my whereabout and asking me why I am so inactive on my blog recently.


Yes, I confess (and apologize).... I have been quite inactive in posting makeup related tutorials or looks lately. It's not because I am getting tired of blogging or lacking motivation... If you follow my blog regularly, then you know that I got married last December. Maintaining my jobs, planning the wedding & the occasion itself,  and also maintaining my blog "Sifa's Corner" was pretty hectic!





Recently I am focused in settling & adjusting with my new life.....a new part, away from the familiar faces & places.

I have moved home this month and now living in USA with my husband. Life here is really interesting & functioning ...but leaving the place you have called "home" for the major part of your life and live in some other geographic location is hard.

Don't assume that I have abandoned my blog! I have big plans for Sifa's Corner and if God willing, you are going to see some positive changes soon... umm.....as soon as I unpack & get settled up! Haha..


So wish me luck and accept my gratitude for being a part of my blog!

Here are some snaps from my journey...Dhaka->Chicago->Fargo

Hair Products I am Loving Right Now..



Hello Hello!

Summer is here in Dhaka.... so the heavy conditioner I have used in Winter is just weighing my hair down.
(May be once or twice a month is okay for deep conditioning treatment, but for weekly use- umm.....nope!)

I have been searching for a good shampoo & conditioner for a long time. Nothing was doing any good to my curly hair. Then Sabikun from Hair Bar Bangladesh salon recommended me to try the shampoos from Bodyshop. As I have never used any Bodyshop shampoos before, I thought, "Why not?!"

P.S.: If you do not know about Sabikun or Hair Bar Bangladesh salon.. you should totally check it out! She is a Dhaka based hair stylist who gave me a hair cut & colored my hair in December. Here is her page link.

Here is the cut & color job she gave me. The highlight was very subtle, which enhanced my curls actually.

In the meantime, I received a hair conditioner from Lush Cosmetics via Daily Makeover. It's my first Lush product, YEY!

So, I bought a color protecting shampoo from Bodyshop which is called "Bilberry Colour Protect Shampoo" and paired it with the Lush "Happy Happy Joy Joy" conditioner. I quite liked the result.

Here is a short review for the products.
