Goldfoiled life

________ 2017-04-06 ________

I’m all about those golden details! Recently I bought these two prints at our local store and died when I realized it was indeed gold foiling! I love doing it at home but obviously the quality of the paper varies lol. These two came with card stock paper and I got two frames to go with them from my mama. Fit PERFECTLY on my wall. I used to love the photowall I had before, but I have to agree that I’ve “outgrown” it and just want my room to look stylish and one-colored haha!

WEDDING DEETS #3—Add-ons

________ 2017-03-25 ________

Here’s my update on my wedding deets binder, after all the last touch ups and add-ons I went live on instagram as well, mainly to show you guys my binder and what’s inside, but thought that I’ll post this for you guys that somehow missed it (HOW?!) or just wanted a second look. Don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but this binder is full of actual details regarding my wedding. Everything from the first try on of the wedding dress to music playlists, jeweller contact numer and hall confirmation note. I love gathering inspiration but if there’s anything better than that, it has to be having actual bridal dress receipt or pictures of the different stages your wedding dress went through to be the most important piece of cloth you’ll ever own.

I know I’ve already showed you guys the dividers but here you go again, cause now we’re gonna start a weekly update on this for real :) First thing’s first; I made all the dividers, dashboard etc myself in Photoshop. I used layers, purchased bokeh background and credit goes to whoever made the icons! This right here is my dashboard which I’ll be using as a “to-do-list”. Right now it contains thousands of post-it’s where I’ve written what I need to do next, be that printing or something else!

Then we have all my different dividers! I laminated all of these, including my dashboard, with Anderson’s laminator. It was quite easy to be honest and took me around 5 minutes to get everything done!

Every divider contains information regarding the heading. For example under “attire” you’ll find stones, the actual pictures and semi stitched pieces of the dress.

Since last time I actually bought a new binder cause I wanted a front page as well. Here’s the picture I made in Photoshop as well! The page is golf-foiled using my laminator and some gold foiled paper. Tutorial coming soon!

That’s all for this time! I’ll make part 1,2 & 3 for the pages in the different dividers so this post won’t be too long lol!

Campaign statistics and what not

________ 2017-03-22 ________

Hi guys! Gonna be a late post today, was out driving all day just to be lazy at home, sleep for 10 minutes then run for an employee meeting at 8. Didn’t really feel like a day off since the driving lesson was quite early and I’m struggling atm lol. Can’t wait to have my license already seriously. So tired of early mornings and being positive even though I try so hard ugh. Anyway! We had a campaign at work where we had to ask as many customers as possible about Coffee cards and I was a runner up in our little contest. I won a cute little pink cup and chocolates! I personally love mars but I’m avoiding everything that contains chocolate atm, since I’m trying to get rid of acne scars haha! Highlight of the day

Shopping, The Weeknd

The Weeknd collaborates with H&M

________ 2017-03-20 ________

I just get more and more surprised every time I see The Weeknd’s face in a public place lol… I’m still so used to the dark depressed and secretive Abel back in the days, that I literally can’t hide my excitement over his rising progress in the music industry *groupe-warning*. Today I had 3 hours to kill before work and therefore went to our local walking street for some window shopping. What do I see in H&M’s window? XO jackets and hoodies! I was literally laughing out loud, I got so happy! I already own a XO-HOODIE, but back then no one knew of The Weeknd so I just ordered a customized one lol.

The funny part is just that his collection with H&M is for men… AND of course I got his bomber jacket anyway haha! I don’t really care, cause it fits my heart and body perfectly yaaao

Happiest 23′rd birthday

________ 2017-03-20 ________

Yesterday I rounded 23 years of my life. Thats quite old if you ask me… Wish I could stay 18 all my life lol. I danced to Taal soundtrack in the morning, did a little bit of coding, took some pictures and ate cake with dood patti at 10pm. I got roses from my mama and a beautiful Pandora bracelet from my sister (THANK YOU!). If you’re a faithful follower you’ll know how much I love taking birthday pictures. I try to change the themes every once and then and was pretty much tired of the huge digit balloons I buy every year. That’s why I decided to just go with the flow and this ↓ is what I came up with. Cool huh? Even though wrinkles are 30 years ahead, I still feel so old lol.. I mean I’m halfway to 50 in two years?!

Aaaaand here’s my “normal” pictures for those wondering. I was wearing my new kameez from Beech Tree and was loving the cutwork at the bottom. Felt so summery in a way :⁆ I got this from Pakistan!

*checks if everything is set and ready*—WASSUP GUYS?! I’ve been working with this layout for 5 days now and can proudly say that I’m HALFWAY there lol! Actually, it all started out with me messing something up in the codes ( I was only trying to fix a new header!!) and after that it just went downhill. I tried fixing it but since I’m not used to code as much as I was before (I did it daily lol), I just ruined the whole design. Got second thoughts and nearly closed down the blog, but then got the idea of going with a template instead and edit after that!! You know what the best part about all this is?—you are now looking at a RESPONSIVE WEBDESIGN! I got a lot of DM’s last time about the layout looking hella crazy in some browsers and I was unable to fix that. So thought of going with something that was fully responsive hehe.

Now to the next part; what you know about Thursdaygal.com is long gone. This site is brand new and only God knows the ideas I got in my head. I’m thinking a lot of tutorials, tips & trix, desi posts and what not!!! I’m so so so excited you guys! I deleted 5-10 categories that wasn’t being used anyway, or was just… not really to any use. Put them in a drop down menu and voila! Later to come is a camera equipment page and a page where you can read a little about moi. You can even find recent posts to the right and I’m thinking of doing a “worth reading” post header as well, where I’ll gather all the good posts that deserves a reread! If you look at the top, you can now find the songs I’m listening to atm. If you scroll to the bottom you can now see my instafeed and the newest little baby;

DULHANDIARIES

I’m SOOOOO excited to finally talk about this you guys! The site is still under construction, but will soon contain all-errything wedding DIY’s, ideas and inspiration. I’m talking about mendhi thaals to walima reception yass! Let’s cheers into this new beginning for Thursdaygal.com and take this blog even further. Oh and, I decided to cancel the swedish text once and for all and concentrate on the english readers. Mainly cause 99% of you guys are from the UK (lol) but also cause it just gets too messy with so much text in one post and nah cba haha!

Been there, done that, Mix, Pakistan

Pakistan january 2017

________ 2017-02-15 ________

Idag vaknade jag i panik eftersom jag trodde jag skulle jobba haha… Somnade om igen och vaknade vid 11, så jäkla skönt! Detta är min lediga helg på länge och jag älskar att jag inte har ett skit planerat. Tänker bara koppla av, sitta med lite teori inför körkortet och kanske kolla på film. Tänkte berätta lite mer om Pakistan och visa er bilder faktiskt! Blir en blandning av iPhone samt system-bilder, eftersom jag såklart råkade packa bort kameran i handbagaget och inte orkade ta ner den i flyget haha!

//T R A N S L A T I O N; Today the first thing I did was panic; cause I thought I was late to work lol. Talk about being scarred for life.. Fell asleep again tho, and woke up at 11am. This is my first free weekend after AGES! I’m not gonna do shit these two days apart from watching movies and eating junk food haha! Was actually thinking I should talk about Pakistan in this post; apparently I still haven’t posted about what I did in my pak sar zameen for 18 days, besides looking for the perfect bridal dress so to say. So here we goooo!

Vill inte ens gå in på hur illa vår resa gick till Pakistan, men kan säga som så att jag aldrig någonsin kommer att välja Turkish Airlines igen. Åt helvete med billiga flygbiljetter, de suger och ingenting annat. Vi satt iaf i Business Class från Turkiet till Lahore och fyfaaaan va det var välförtjänt! Jag kollade på Suicide Squad hela vägen och sov som en bebis innan vi landade i Lahore och tog bilen till Gujrat.
Såklart var oturen inte slut när vi väl var framme i Pakistan… Inget av vår bagage hade kommit med, utan de hade “glömt” det i Turkiet av någon anledning. Så här stod jag utan kläder, smink eller trosor och hade en bröllop att närvara vid om 2 dagar. Det var inte kul. Fick dra ut med mama och köpa nya kläder och även om jag hellre hade sparat de pengarna så har jag iaf något att ha på mig på Eid nu :⁆ Försöker tänka positivt haha!

//T R A N S L A T I O N; I’m not even going to write about how our journey went to Pakistan, but I can say as much that I’m never choosing Turkish Airlines again after this episode. Not only did we miss our flight due to the bad weather (which obv they couldn’t really help), but they somehow “forgot” our luggage in Turkey (???) for 3 days. Ugh. Although we travelled Business Class on our way from Turkey to Lahore, so it was very well deserved. I watched Suicide Squad the whole time and slept like a baby the remaining 2 hours to Pakistan.
As mentioned above; our luggage was long gone when we arrived in Lahore, so all we could do was go home without anything. I didn’t even have a pair of clean undies to wear on the actual wedding god help me!

Vi satt med värmen på 1000 och frös ihjäl i Gujrat. Min halsduk som numera inte är rosa längre, utan någon äcklig färg av urtvättad peach färg, var min bästa vän och jag sov i min kappa varje dag. Tacka lov för jag lyssnade på er och tog med mig min stora morgonrock! Hade inte klarat mig utan den i Sialkot

//T R A N S L A T I O N; The heater was on our faces 24/7 and I slept with my jacket on the first 3-4 days. The thing about cold in Pakistan is that the houses are built for the summer, which means they’re open and not as isolated as in Sweden… So the floor was ice cold and it somehow blew ice cold wind in the main entrance blaah.

Sedan var det bröllopsdags och såhär fin var mendhi-lokalen! Allt förutom de stora ramarna som de hade på golvet var fint enligt mig haha! Gillade färgkombon, men önskar att de hade stängt dörren och kanske hade haft lite musik också.. Blev så tyst att man kunde höra sig själv tänka under festen samt så kallt att man hellre gick runt med jackan på men men!

//T R A N S L A T I O N; And the mendhi was here! I really liked how the marquee looked like, apart from the bigass frames they, I have no idea why, had placed right in front of the stage. Just wish they had put on some music as well, the silence was biting my ears as I could hear people eat ugh.

Jag lånade lashes av min kära kusin och hade basen i sminkväskan. Det gick ändå bra, bara det att jag hade världens sämsta hårdag. Borde nog ha duschat nu när jag tänker efter haha! Men det var så jäääkla kallt att jag bara inte kunde förmå mig att ens ta av min mina strumpor blåä..

//T R A N S L A T I O N; I borrowed some ebay-lashes of my cousin (lol) and only had a bottle of MAC foundation in my bag… It went well tho (halleluja makeup queen!), just that I had the worst hair day ever and really should’ve taken a shower before the actual party…. lol.

Jag kan ju berätta lite mer om lokalen då många frågade mig om den på insta. Det är en nyöppnad lokal i Gujrat som kanske inte är världens största men ändå med helt okej utrymme. Gillade hur upplyst den var och även scenen var helt okej inrett. Dock är smaken ju som baken, och du bestämmer helt själv hur du vill ha det, speciellt vad angår färger, kombon samt musik. Om ni söker på “Nasrullah Marquee” på facebook kommer ni nog hitta rätt :⁆ Nu för tiden är det ändå rätt “inne” med marquees för mendhis.. Här hade de använt sig av en marquee i en lokal så man slapp regnen om den nu skulle överraska i all onödan.

//T R A N S L A T I O N; A lot of you guys asked me about the mendhi hall which you saw in the background of my selfies lol.. It’s a new marquee in Gujrat city which goes by the name of “Nasrullah Marquee”. It’s not huge, but I like the colors in there and it’s a great place for photographers hence the white tiles and all!

På själva bröllopsdagen hade jag på mig en ny frock som glittrade med tusentals pastell-färgade sten. Hade jag inte tappat bort mitt bagage, hade kläderna säkert varit top notch med tillhörande smycken. Jag hittade dock ett par guld-jhumkis i min handväska så fick ta första bästa… Men visst var klänningen fin?

//T R A N S L A T I O N; On the actual baraat day I wore a new frock! I was glitterin like a disco ball the whole day Had we not lost our baggage, I would’ve had some bangin’ jewelry to go with… But admit it; the dress is GAWJUS?!

Sedan drog vi vidare till Sialkot för att träffa min morbror lite. Det var två väldigt tråkiga dagar med kylan som bet i min rumpa. Grät varje gång jag skulle på toa eftersom det var öppet vid ena väggen… Ush.

//T R A N S L A T I O N; & then we went to Sialkot to meet my mamu. It was two very boring days in the coldest city on earth ugh.

Från Sialkot till Islamabad där jag fick med mig min mammas fina bröllopsklänning som hon hade designat själv. Den är i fin chockrosa färg och påminner mig om mamma med hennes rosa kinder på 90-talet

& sedan fortsatte resan mot the perfect red bridal dress i Rawal Pindi/Islamabad. Det var en lärorik resa och jag är nöjd med allt jag åstadkom på så kort tid. Om ni missade mitt inlägg om min bröllopsklänning så kan ni hitta den HÄR.

//T R A N S L A T I O N; I found my mamas old wedding dress in Sialkot and went home to Rawal Pindi/Islamabad for our end destination. Here we found my bridal dress, which I have talked alot about HERE as well, and then straight home again to Sweden. It was such a good journey and I really needed that break from work, uni and my daily responsibilities. Hope you guys enjoyed this post!
