Sleep can follow a physiological or behavioral definition. In the physiological sense, sleep is a state characterized by a reversible unconsciousness, special brainwave patterns, sporadic eye movement, loss of muscle tone (possibly with some exceptions; see below regarding the sleep of birds and of aquatic mammals), and a compensatory increase following deprivation of the state. In the behavioral sense, sleep is characterized by non-responsiveness to external stimuli, the adoption of a typical posture, and the occupation of a sheltered site, all of which is usually repeated on a 24 hour basis.

‘Mehndi Lagao ge main Sajna kay naam ki’ the symbol of love and happiness, Mehndi is a story of girlish charms, it’s delicately designed intricate patterns are the words that portray her emotions, her tender feelings, and her hidden desires that no one knows. Mehndi is a symbol that shows that a young naive virgin is ready to transform into a temptress for her husband. Mehndi is undoubtedly a trademark of Pakistani weddings.
Wedding season seems to be going in full swing these days. Where fancy dresses, colorful bangles, dholki and traditional geets are considered a must shaadi ingredient, there you cannot deny the seductress charm of hennaed hands, loaded with flirty bangles. The subtle fragrance that those beautifully designed hennaed hands omit feels sweet, innocent and extremely irresistible.
There are many traditional beliefs connected with Mehndi, in ancient Kama Sutra culture, Henna is one of the sixty four arts of women. Popular motifs of the bridal Mehndi are conch shell, flowers, Kalash, peacock, doli and baraat patterns. The intricate motifs of the bridal henna also hide the husband’s name. It is said that the husband’s name in the intricate henna motifs is made for the groom who has to find out his name in his bride’s Mehndi to impress his girl. Another interesting belief about Mehndi is that the darker and deeper the henna stains, the more the husband and the in-laws will love the bride.

The whole point of makeup is to make you look the best of you, so make sure you use the right makeup the right way.
A natural, rosy radiance is very appealing. When applying makeup blush, you want the color to look soft and natural:
- Lightly blow on the makeup brush to remove any excess blush before applying to prevent a harsh and uneven makeup application.
- Apply your makeup blush on the apple of the cheek and carefully blend towards your natural hairline.If you have two shades, apply the darker one on the apple of the cheek first, then use the lighter shade to highlight. Blend well.
- Highlight your temples, forehead and chin.
A makeup tip to know is "where to glow"; bend over for 30 seconds, and then slowly stand up. Where your cheeks are flushed is where you are meant to apply makeup blush.
Another very important makeup tip is to ensure cheek color should be used to improve your complexion, not to change your natural skin tone. Use makeup blush carefully for daytime, then add more or a deeper shade for a more theatrical nighttime effect. For special occasions, dust a lightly frosted powder over your cheekbones for a delicate but appealing glow.
Make sure to blend your makeup blush into your foundation well or it will tend to look unnatural and add the appearance of 5 years to your looks.
Shape up your lips right to go with your makeup blush. Lining your lips is significant for creating plump, noticeable lips. Perfecting your pout also adds to the perfect makeup. What effect are you looking to achieve; creamy, sheer, and glossy. Attractive lips are soft and supple, so keep your lips smooth.
