  • What are the first thoughts that can come to a person's mind when talking about South Asian women? How does the world define us? Oppressed? Less-privileged? Under-estimated? Beaten? Raped? Acid victims? This stereotypical thinking needs to stop! 🀐😷😀

I'm a South Asian woman and I was born in Pakistan; yes, the same state that has a tumultuous history! Let me tell you what I have experienced living a #lifeasapakiwoman.
.
.
I won't say that life is a fairytale for a Pakistani woman, or any woman of any ethnicity actually. It's tough for us, yes but only we have the patience to adjust in the society. .
.
Not all of us have supportive parents, but most of us have the privilege to study, become independent and live as members of a community. Of course there might be some people who have questioned you or your parents for your decisions. You know, the same old 'oho larrki ho k itna parh k kia karegi?' 'shadi hi to krni hai, bs parh lia ab khana bnana seekho.' 'shareef gharon ki larrkian job ni krten' etc, but you don't need to stop what you're doing. I have heard all of these phrases in my life too but as long as you're on the right track and have faith in yourself, you can conquer anything girl!

So, as a Pakistani woman I am educated Alhamdulillah, I have a job and I am a respected member of the society like most of the women of my generation. Thanks for reading! .

  • Just think about it. Whatever you are doing in your life, does it really affect anyone? Does anyone care? Most of the people you meet in life will try their best to let you down, either because of jealousy or pride. Except for your parents and siblings, no one really cares what's going on in your life. So let them talk and don't stress yourself because 'log kia kahengay'... You do you!

  • Snail and collagen masks are all the hype nowadays πŸ“’. While they do sound gross and disgusting, I think they actually work too. Have you tried any of them? Do comment below!

Okay, so I got this pack of Jellyfish Silk MaskπŸ¦‘from @minisopakistanofficial (because why not? πŸ˜…) and I have already used 2 out of 3. So here is what I think about it:
.
.
First of all, it's a sheet mask drenched with a sloppy, slimey liquid, so a little hard to apply on your face. Once you put it on, you need to lay down for a good half an hour so the mask doesnt slide of your face πŸ˜…πŸ˜’. .
.
Now, I like to take the slime that is left in the sheet mask wrapper and just massage it on my neck. I really noticed visible difference on my skin. My pores were less visible, skin felt tighter and smoother and it didnt smell weird either. It's also super affordable.
.
.
Will I get this sheet mask again? Of course yes! Let me know if this review was helpful. Thanks!
