About Me


Just in case some of my wonderful readers do not know, my name is Iqra Arshad, I'm 21 years old and I am up for all things beauty, music and fashion which is what my blog revolves around. And also pretty much my daily life struggles of being a student. I am obsessed with music and books too so you may see random sprinkles of these two as well!

I stumbled upon YouTube in 2009/2010 and became obsessed with fashion, beauty and makeup videos. I instantly started loving YouTubers who did such videos. I even remember I started off by watching Michelle Phan, Bubzbeauty and YaYaLifestyle.

Thanks to these 3 amazing YouTubers, and others that unfortunately, I don't really remember that well, I became inspired and started experimenting with makeup. At that point, I was 12-14 years old, not really sure exactly so I had only just started out with makeup and pretty much was just learning to apply eyeliner. 

Once I reached the age to experiment a bit more, around 15 years old, I started playing around with eyeshadows and other makeup products and ended up really loving the idea of creating different looks. Till this day, I still love creating smokey eyes and it is for sure my go-to look. So my love for makeup began!

So now onto  my blogging journey. My school were doing a competition of who could create the best blog, I was in year 11 at this point so 15-16 years old, and it was all to help improve our writing skills. Since I already loved reading, writing and the subject English in general, I jumped at the opportunity. My school never really announced who won but it didn't matter because I ended up really loving it and now it has become a huge part of my life and I honestly do not know where I would be or what kind of person I would be if I hadn't started blogging or just kind of stopped it a long time back. 

In terms of my YouTube story, I'll keep it brief as this is more about my blog but April 2013, I had a week off from school. I was bored and decided to start my channel which I had been contemplating for a while. I wasn't sure if I should do it as I already got a lot said to me in school due to my musical background. But in the end, I did join, simply because I was having difficulties uploading videos to my posts on this blog. So I decided to go ahead with YouTube. I mean I didn't really get off to the best start but that was expected but we've grown so much together as a channel and I love the feedback I'm getting.

I wish to thank everyone who reads my blog and watches my videos, thank you for being here for me when reaching to this big platform wasn't made easy for me. I hope that I am blessed with your continuous support and hopefully I can help some of you through your hard times and we can just all be happy with our inner selves! 

Love you all, kisses xoxo
