Now on to the facts:
Hira Tabassum:
1. Shopping is more like a therapy to me. It uplifts my mood instantly when I am feeling down.
2. Though I am a beauty blogger I spend most of my money on clothes, shoes and bags.
3. Now this one is more of a confession but before makeup caught up to me I was one of the girls who thought makeup was a waste of time.
4. By nature I am really patient and friendly or at least I like to think so.
5. No matter how much I try, I have never been able to get over procrastinating. Yes, I am lazy as hell. No wonder I get scolded by my mom all the time.
6. I love reading novels. My favourite genre is mystery thriller though lately I have been hooked to medieval time romances. In last 4 to 5 days I have managed to read three novels by Julie Garwood even under my mom's watchful gaze.
7. I think I am cursed when it comes to cooking. Even if it is something as trivial as making an egg, I manage to do something wrong.

Maria Tabassum
Well to start off with my attributes, I am a very short tempered person. I am easily irritated and
often this lack of control has been exploited. Once I made a wager with my brother not to lose my temper the entire day and obviously I ended up losing my money.
2. On the brighter side I am a very hardworking person, a trait that has been instilled in me by mother. When I start something I see that it is both done well and in time, for which I owe my mother a lot.
3. When it comes to makeup, to every makeup lunatic I can be described as an illiterate person. As a new beauty blogger, I had very trifle knowledge regarding makeup brands and products though now the situation has considerably improved.
4. I don't strive well in pressure and when I can't cope with something I let it go. No matter how important it may have been to me initially.
5. When I go out shopping I don't buy anything unless it has been approved by my mother which is why whenever she is not around I buy almost everything I can lay my hands on.
6. I am immensely fond of urdu literature particularly poetry, ghazal to be exact. One of my favourite piece is by Amjad Islam:
Paer ko deemak lag jaye ya adam zaat ko gham
Dono hi ko amjad hamne bachte dekha kam
7. Finally writing essays on my self is something I haven't ever been fond of, so nostalgia was not the feeling coursing through me when Bia gave us this award. I just hope I have fulfilled the task to its best.

Again we would like to thank our readers for bearing with us and Bia for thinking us worthy of this award.
Hira & Maria.
