The Doctor Who Tag

Who is your favourite Doctor?

Ugh, the hardest question has tp be the first one! David Tennet made himself so loveable and I adored his quirky-ness and his platonic relationship with Donna, but Matt Smith killed it for me! I fell in love instantly with him and I still can't wrap my head around the fact that he's gone... )': His chin is just so...perfect. 

What is your favourite Doctor Who story?

Blink. I loved that episode, it brought the Doctor Who-ism back.

Who is your favourite companion?

Donna was my favourite for a while because she was the perfect companion with sassiness and a "big sister" kind of relationship and adored their bond. Rory was another favourite of mine, with him waiting all those years for Amy and the undeniable Three Musketeers vibe but my all time favourite companion is Clara Oswald circa Series 7. I adored her courage and well, just about everything about her.
What was the first Doctor Who story you watched?

Rose (SO1 EO1) and it wasn't the best but I knew what I was in for, so I stuck around.

What is your favourite series or era?

Series 7, hands down. I'm not going to lie, Series 8 has kinda lost me and I'm pretty upset about it but Series 7 was the ultimate series for me.

What is your favourite pre or post regeneration story?

The Eleventh Hour was perfection.

What is your favourite TARDIS desktop theme?

What is your favourite villain/monster?

The Weeping Angels - twisted enough to leave you freaking out.

If you're a Whovian I tag you and if you're not - RUN and watch the show!!!

Shaadi Bells ♥ Updates of the Day till the Day!

Shaadi in Urdu and Hindi mean wedding and I found that seems to fit the title of this new series perfectly. Shaadi Bells - updates about the Big Day till the Big Day. There are only seventeen days left till I become someone's wife which is just as surreal as when the Eleventh Doctor regenerated. So here's the first "update" of what's going down. 

1. In Pakistan, there are two days to the wedding - the Baraat (which involves the bride to sign the wedding papers and leave her maiden home) and the Valima (a dinner hosted by the groom's side for the bride's family and his own) - which means I needed two glammed up dresses. Typically, the Baraat dress is red but as the unconventional person I am, I opted for a coral-gold pink dress with a long shirt and skirt with heavy gold embroidery. The Valima dress is a gorgeous creme coloured dress with handwoven flowers (pictures shall be up in the next blog post!) Both dresses were handmade.

2. I am doing my own skincare and makeup. I don't trust saloons for makeup at all. I am not one for the typical cakey makeup brides tend to choose (whatever floats you boat) because in the end it's just one day in your life and I am not clogging up my pores to look like an evil, cakey snow queen.

3. The wedding is on the 5th of January, 2015.

4. I am extremely nervous and have been having panic attacks daily.

So hopefully, the next couple of posts should entail makeup for the day, pictures of the dresses and stuff like that!

And also please follow me on Blog'lovin and Instagram, it makes me oh so happy!
