Jumpsuit Joy

HI Babes!!

Happy Hump Day! I am not gonna lie y’all I’m riding the struggle bus this week, between trying to keep up with my work and fighting this sinus infection I am SO ready for the weekend to be here. Speaking of the weekend I am sharing the perf weekend outfit with you guys today!

This blue jumpsuit is literally perfect for any weekend plans you have! I can dress it down for hanging at the farmers market or dress it up for brunch with my babes, it is so versatile and just freaking adorable no matter how you wear it.

Can we take a minute to admire the cute AF ruffle that goes all the way around this jumpsuit though!?! It adds the perfect touch of girly to the whole look. I am always down for a good ruffle ;)

I am so obsessed with jumpsuits because they are a complete outfit all on their own. Especially when Im traveling I basically just live in gorgeous rompers and/or jumpsuits! They take all the guess work out of making an outfit for the day, plus they’re crazy comfy.

I got this particular jumpsuit at Altar’d State but this one is currently sold out. I did link a SUPER SUPER similar one from Target HERE though. My white heels are thrifted but I linked a similar pair HERE.

As always if you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them here in the comments or hit me up on any of my social medias!

I hope you all make it through this Hump Day and have a fab weekend!

Deck the Halls Coffee Shop

HIII BABES!!!

It has been a hot minute hasn’t it!? I have been taking a lot of down time during December to just relax with friends and family and to also get ready for the New Year. I have a lot of fun stuff coming to Basic Blogger B*tch and I can’t wait to share it with you all. Even though I am in holiday relaxation mode I didn’t forget about you all, in fact I am going to be sharing one of my favourite holiday coffee shops with you guys today!

Deck the Halls Coffee Shop also known as Fiction Coffee the rest of the year, is literally one of my favourite places to chill at during December. They completely change their regular decor to look like a magical Christmas cottage and it gives you all the Christmas-y feels.

Lets start with the wall outside. This is literally any influencer/blogger’s dream, to be honest it’s anyone with a cameras dream. You can’t not want a picture with it!

Can we also just take a minute to admire this decor inside? I feel like I am in Mrs. Clause’s house every time I walk in. I would honestly be there everyday if I could!!

Take a look at this holiday menu you guys. Those names are E V E R Y T H I N G am I right?! My personal fave is the Falala-Latte(The second picture) it tastes like Christmas in a cup.

If you live in Dallas I 1000% recommend stopping in because you will never want to leave once you do ;) It will definitely get you in the Christmas spirit. DTHCS is open everyday leading up to Christmas Day and their last day is the 31st, so you can go anytime between now and then.

As always if you have any questions or comments leave them down below or hit me up on any of my socials, I love talking to you guys so don’t be shy ;)

I hope you are all having a wonderful December so far!

East Meets West

Hey Babes!

Today’s post is one I have been SO excited to write and I have been dying to get it up for you guys to read! I hope you love it as much as I loved working on it!

As many of you know I am half Pakistani and American/Canadian, if you didn’t then SURPRISE! I decided to answer some of the MOST asked question I get about being Pakistani, religious views, visiting Pakistan, etc. So lets get into it!

Are You Muslim?

Yes! My whole family(mom, dad, brother) are Muslim. People find it really hard to believe that my mom and I are Muslim, I guess because she’s white and I look more white than Pakistani? I don’t know but we 100% are!

Why Don’t You Wear the Hijab?

Honestly if I had a dollar for every time someone asked me this I’d be rich you guys! I have just never felt like I needed to wear it and neither did my parents. I definitely don’t have any hate to girls who do, if that’s something they feel like they want to do then more power to them!

Have You Ever Been To Pakistan?

Yes yes yes! I love visiting. My fam tries to take a trip every year or two to visit if we can. I wish we could go more often honestly but we are super blessed to be able to visit as much as we do.

Have You Ever Experienced Racism For Being Pakistani/Muslim?

So I have been really fortunate and can say that I personally haven’t. I know some of my friends have had some bad experiences and it definitely does happen. I have only ever had a few racist comments on some Youtube videos and posts but nothing too bad and never to my face.

What is Your Favourite Pakistani Dish?

This is literally the hardest question out of all of these! Um if I had to pick I would say Haleem or Biryani. Snack wise definitely Samosas or Pakoras. It’s honestly so hard to choose :P

This was literally one of my favourite posts to work on you guys! Thank you to everyone who sent questions and if I didn’t answer yours feel free to hit me up on any of my socials and I definitely will!

I want to give a huge shoutout to Dafa Hoja for sending me this PERF hoodie! I am 1000% obsessed with it. I am also working on an awesome project with them that I cannot wait to share with you guys!

I hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Xoxo,
