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

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

The Perfect Black OOTD to Match My Soul

Happy Hump Day Guys!!!

The week is halfway over and we are SO close to the weekend!! Hopefully this #OOTD inspo will help your week go by a little easier ;)

This is probably the most "me" OOTD ever because it's almost as black as my dark little soul ;) Also the black is hella slimming which is always a bonus right?

Can we just take a moment to acknowledge how freaking cute the frills on this sweater are too by the way!? They add such a bomb little touch to the basic black sweater. Oh and the patches of black throughout the jeans literally captured my heart. I saw them and was hooked!
