Model: Me (@zooooobear)
From a few weeks,I've been noticing that the soul my posts once had doesn't exist anymore.
It was just me trying to convince people that i work hard for this blog nd all. But that makes me feel sick and i unintentionally have to question myself that was all the effort even worth only 200 likes/50 commnts.Thinking about how simple my blog was for me when all i tried was to make my post/ content be the best for me. When it revolved all around NATURAL STUFF THAT HAPPENED TO ME/IN MY LIFE. When it was all about helping others. Maybe this change is because my life's been a mess these days.Having anxiety issues and posting with those wasn't an easy task.
How will you feel when you have to read the caption more than a hundred times to check your mistakes (knowing you're good at it, there can't be any) but still being scared about WHAT IF THERE'S A MISTAKE. I don't know why my blog wasn't the same happy place for me, the one which was helping me get through the bad days. It was like asking myself every day "was all the time i invested in this even worth it"
I didn't know what was happening.. Why was i over conscious about what others think about my blog and what no of followers i have. I totally forgot that it never bothered me and it never should. Needed to give myself a break from it to figure out what exactly i wanted.
All those "you look pretty " "beautiful " commnts were driving me crazy. It stopped making me happy anymore. It was more like my insta fam no longer cares about what's written and what the message is.
It kinda made me sad. But, maybe i was overthinkin bout it!
During all of this, i learnt something that doing a task only because it makes you and others happy will always bring you peace. But doing it with desires in your heart will make always make you feel incomplete.
And eventually you'll be questioning your self worth.
And now again i know, it isn't related to "how many followers/likes do i have? "My each post took a lot of time and effort for all the edits/captions,etc.And everything is supposed to be a reason to smile.Back with the same way i used to post. Captions that can help you all and me (of course). .
Bringing back the old days! ❤
Make it happen.
Make your own future.
Make your own hope.
Make your own love.
And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.
Life is 10% what happened to you and 90% how you react to it.
FROM A SMALL TOWN TO THE BIGGEST METROPOLITAN CITY OF PAKISTAN .
So, after getting my primary education done from Hunza, I moved to Karachi with my family in 2008. ✈️ .
Let me be honest with myself and with you; when I first moved to Karachi, it felt really amazing. The feeling of freedom, the excitement of living in a big city, and the anonymity of walking around in a place where no one knew me were all exciting but very significant changes for me and at that point of my life I had two options in front of me; I could either live a life of purpose that I would design for myself, or I could have a life that would be decided by the society I had already left behind - I decided and chose to create my life on my own terms and to become the change I want to see. 🤞🏻
Now the biggest challenge for me was handling the initial transition: What I saw in my childhood vs what I was seeing, where I have come from vs where I was were two different aspects of life. The greatest challenge for me was accepting the transition and embracing a new reality. It wasn’t as easy as it may sound because guess what? When I first moved to Karachi I didn’t even know what KFC and zinger burger was, what pizza hut was and what flavours they had and the worst part of it was, mjhy urdu bolni bhi nhi ati thi so whenever my classmates would ask “we’re ordering pizza, what flavour do you want or do you want KFC zinger burger?” I would stay quiet and wonder “ab ye kia nai musibat agai” 😂 because I had no clue about what to answer. Man, it used to feel really awkward back then but now I laugh at myself. But, that’s exactly what it is like to be a small-town girl in a big city. Anyway, it took me 2 years to adapt to a whole new way of thinking and adjust myself to the new culture I had moved to. Got done with my secondary and higher education and bam! there was another big challenge in front of me. 🍀
Despite the fact that it was never easy for my father to send me to an expensive university, he kept pushing me to get in to any top notch universities of Pakistan. Luckily, in 2012 I got in to FAST-NU and passed out with pretty flying colors (I topped in my last semester😁)🌸

hello Guys.. -----_---------_---------_-----------_----------/ I thought to not to post this but then thought efforts ki hai tou kr hi deti hu👀😬😅 . .
Follow @mariamslayblogger for more honest reviews. .
I visited @koelcafe last week with some of my friends. The interior was good no doubt, but service was very poor. We ordered Alfredo pasta, fresh lime and mineral water. .
➡️Firstly, water was served in dusty glasses. We asked them to change the glasses and serve again.
➡️Secondly, fresh lime was served with a complimentary insect. -_- .
➡️ Last but not the least, Alfredo pasta had a human hair in it. 🙄 .
Bas in sab mazaq k baad baat bardasht se bahir hogayi thi or humny manager ko bula kr tameez se sunaya or uth kr chalay gaye. :))) .
Service : 2/10.
Taste : 3/10.
Environment : 7/10.
Quality : 1/10. (Serving unhygienic food, usky b itny paisy #sedloif )
Someone msged - ‘can’t enjoy your stories if I don’t know where you are! ‘ .
And I was like , yes it makes sense. So congratulations to everyone who said on our last post that it’s ‘STATES’ yes we are in #newyork . 💃🏻 We had a relatively easy flight. Ayaan was cooperative beyond imaginations. He played ‘bowling the game’ for more than half an hour😳
But he is jet lagged and we were up at his school time which is like really really late night here. 😟
Anyway, we are so excited to explore US, ayaanu is only excited to meet ‘Alex the lion’ from #madagascar . 😄
He keeps on saying ‘Nuuyok’ —- lion say ROARRR’ 😁 (and then he roars in Alex style)
Join us on our stories, I am sure you are going to love it because all the fun shall be there! 💃🏻
Gotta go now because my chooza is crying at the top of his lungs sitting on a driveway, near a white car because he thinks every white car is ‘monny car’ and he wants to be in. 🤪
Morocco is known for its beautiful architecture. Influenced by Islamic traditions, Morocco’s buildings often have elaborate geometric patterns, Arabic calligraphy of Quranic verses embedded into the walls or ceilings, colourful ceramic tiles, and large domes. My husband and I are had an amazing time exploring the unique architecture of Morocco while learning about Islamic history 👣🗺🕌

Isn’t it great if you could do a facial at home and save bunch of money you spend on facials at salon?
Well you can now and it’s from @derma.shine
Ps: it’s affordable and hygienic too woohoo
How to use it.
1- wash your face with Pomegranate face wash
2- apply generous amount of apricot whitening scrub
3- apply orange whitening cleanser in circular motion.
4- apply cucumber facial mask (cover it evenly) and wait till dries out.
5- apply skin polisher in circular motion
6- Massage your face with honey and almond cream doing upward strokes.
Trust me it is the best facial kit you can get at home in an affordable price.
It makes your skin soft and shiny.
(DO NOT MASSAGE A LOT OR AGGRESSIVELY AS IT WILL PROVOKE PIMPLES TO OCCUR)
So the routine didn't go as planned over the weekend.
Yesterday I made her nap for an hour and then took her out to my cousin's house where I thought she will tire herself and fall right asleep when we get home. What I didn't account for was us going to Dolmen mall and her getting overly excited. By 10pm she did get a little cranky and I thought "yes she will fall asleep in the car" 💃🏽 But ofcourse that didn't happen 🤦🏻♀️ She reached home to be wide awake and wanting to watch a movie, took an hour of scolding/loving/convincing to finally get her to sleep.
As for today, she woke up late so I thought I would skip her naptime. Again failed at that 😑 cause I started feeling sleepy so I put her to sleep for an hour with me in the afternoon 🤦🏻♀️ I did however take her out in the evening to keep her busy and also to tire her out but again that clearly didn't work cause as of now she is wide awake and trying everything not to sleep.
How to pose before your Sunday night shift: fidget, nap mid-posing, make do with a semi-decent picture because let’s be honest, no one wants to be at work on a Sunday night 😩 .
Howeverr, I get tomorrow off. Which means I can sleep off my day and make up for tonight. Aw yesss!
In other news, blue is my newly-minted favourite colour, a colour I previously loathed for some reason. Can’t get enough of it now though 🐳

Let’s talk about DEPRESSION today. 🌘
You and me, we’ve all been a victim of it in one way or the other. I’ve seen people running away from this reality much of their lives failing to embrace it. I’ve tried correcting their approach to dealing with it wherever and whenever possible, but I don’t at all get why the advice of consulting a psychiatrist is so looked down upon in our society? Why is it considered so parochial and shameful? Does treating your mental self make you less of a person in this society? Or does it make you physically/mentally unacceptable?
If you are one of those who run away from this problem and don’t speak about it to anyone, PLEASE DO!! It’s not about getting yourself treated but accepting this mental illness, facing it, dealing with it face to face and getting out of it! The day you accept this fact is the day you start moving out of it. Heal yourself no matter how hard it may seem, no matter what others around you think of you. Trust me, you’ll find better people and places but you won’t get your mental health back if you don’t fight this illness. If you can spend millions of rupees on a physical operation or treatment, can you not spend some thousands on your mental well-being? Bring a change in yourself before you can do in others. x 💗
Okay, so most of you thinks I look like @sonamkapoor and I don’t mind, because your pehn loves her. Here, I just recreated one of her looks. Kinda her signature look though.
Go stalk her and find it out!!😂
Thank you for all the love.
oh.my.god❗️I AM super proud of myself for creating this tutorial with my 5 year old daughter 👧🏻 but more than that i am amazed at how Onaiza is already a PRO at it 😳
I might be bragging but BUT Onaiza’s voiceover is EVERYTHING!!!!! I don’t know if this hair-bun tutorial will be of any help to anyone but let’s just appreciate the efforts being put in 🙈 ??
watch till the end ;p
Note: I don’t use any hair gel or hair spray on her hair , trying my best to keep her hair chemicals and heat free

I love this man right here with every inch of my being. I am so happy for him right now.
My heart is full.
For the last 2 years, he commuted from Michigan to Texas for work every week. This commute included a 2.5 hour flight and hours of driving to and from the airports.
because I loved my job in Michigan. And I wasn’t ready to let it go and find a new one in Texas.
I am so incredibly happy that now we are all in Dallas.
He has a job that he absolutely loves, his commute has decreased significantly, he has some really good friends here from his school and college times and a great cricket team.
Last night, all the friends and their families were out together for a dinner and his frequent laughter gave me a feeling I have never known in US.
We are home.
This is home.
There is a weight that has been lifted off my shoulders.
We have been through some pretty rough times but our love has kept us going.
Last 2 years, I single mom’d with an OB job, exams and my business and Instagram ventures.
Suddenly, I am free of a lot of responsibilities and it feels foreign but so good.
I am looking forward to this new and exciting chapter of our lives.
We Are Home.
