Monro Studio’s Campaign to Highlight Everyday Women Heroes!!

[Karachi, 24th February 2016]: MStudio, an upcoming fashion brand for women, vows to liberate mind-sets and have a social impact on the current market of the country.

In light of this vision, they have launched their campaign called ‘#InThePinkRoom’, which highlights extraordinary women who we come across on a daily basis and is centered around #WomenEmpowerment.

Daiyaan Alam, CEO of MStudio said,

“The concept of ‘In the Pink Room’ is all about recognizing the not so average woman, who fights on a daily basis against social and cultural norms to achieve what she wants. We wanted to give them a virtual space where their struggle could be celebrated.”

The best part is everyone can send in nominations for women who inspire them so that they can be featured by MStudio. The nominations can be sent on Facebook or via tweets with the hashtag #InThePinkRoom.

Some highlights of #InThePinkRoom Campaign:

Grateful. Thankful. Blessed.

 

She was unstoppable not because she did not have failures or doubts, but because she continued on despite them.

I dedicate this quote to all the women around the world. Seeing all these women pertinacious in spite of the hardships inspires me to be a better person or to be precise, a better woman. Thank you for that!

It’s always good to take a moment to say, #Thanks. These two little words can have a lot of impact. It makes life much simpler and less frustrating! It is so easy to forget how good life is, but every now and then I think we all need a little nudge to remember gratitude. 🙂 So, don’t waste your time bickering about yesterday nor in pursuit of happiness tomorrow.

I’m Thankful to the LORD for everything he has bestowed. Thank you to all the #Strong women out there who have supported me through and through.

In Conversation with the Woman behind MockingJay – Warda Amin

Who doesn’t love a bold and statement making handbag! I absolutely love ’em too ♥ There was something about MockingJay bags that captivated my attention at the very first glance! So, I just though to speak to the lady behind #MockingJay.

Speaking about the brand, Warda Amin said:

It actually started of as a small exhibition and when orders started coming, we had to start a page. A year later here we are. We are totally Pakistan based which we are very proud of.

Our aim is to design bags which are fun and trendy but also affordable. We put our customers before everything else. We believe that good customer service leads to a long term brand.

What is your design philosophy?
The design philosophy behind a Mockingjay bag is simple. It has to be something we will carry ourselves too. We try to design bags which would catch your eye the first instance you see them.

What’s the story behind this name?
There is no story really behind the name. I am a huge fan of the Hunger Games books. And I loved what the Mockingjay represented in them. Start of a revolution. So it started as a tester and stuck!

Who are your favorite designers? What aspired you to start off with MockingJay?
We try not to obsessively follow foreign brands, because it eventually starts showing up in your designs. But we love Kate Spade and Betsey Johnson. The Row is pretty amazing. Locally we love Mahin Hussain, who is so inspiring and Nefer Sehgal, who is not only uber talented but incredibly nice.

What are your future plans in regards to MockingJay?
This started off as a way to blow off creative steam. We thought it would be one exhibition, a breather and then another maybe. Turned into a full time thing and we love it.

In the near future, we are finally introducing a tote and wallets! Both of which were requested a lot. In the long run we want to introduce home accessories and bring our affordable, likable aesthetic to that.

Why did you opt for this profession and who has been your inspiration through and through?
Like I said this wasn’t supposed to be a profession as such. But since it has become one, we always say what a great job to have! Every day we get to do things that we love and which girl doesn’t like dealing with bags day in and day out? Honestly every working woman inspires me. It is a tough job to have kids/family and to work along with that. I get inspired by women who build each other up, instead of bringing each other down. And kindness, people who are kind are awe inspiring to me.

Currently some bags are on the top of my wishlist this year 🙂  They would definitely make a great conversation starter!

Here are a few of my #TOPPICKS from #MockingJay’s stunning collection:

Voila Yayvo does it again!!

WARNINGDon’t Read This If You Want To Go Bankrupt!” 😀

Oh la la! February traditionally has been a month of celebrating #love as 14th February is the Valentine’s Day. However, in Pakistan it’s the cricket month as #PSL has officially kicked off.

Pakistanis are unable to curb the enthusiasm as they had been #cricket fanatics through and through. The inaugural tournament of the PSL has five teams: Islamabad United, Lahore Qalandars, Karachi Kings, Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi.

The most exciting part about PSL is that Boom Boom Shahid Afridi is the captain of Peshawar Zalmi team. The nation is going gaga as #ShahidAfridi has inspired thousands of cricket fans through his hard hitting batting.

As the excitement of the cricket fans is heating up, #Yayvo has cashed in the opportunity and they have the official merchandise of Peshawar Zalmi.

You can cheer up your favorite team wearing the Official Merchandise from #Yayvo ♥

Happy Birthday to a very Special Friend ;)

I’m not good at remembering other people’s birthdays unless I get the Facebook acknowledgement. But there are certain people whose birthdays are hard to be forgotten and need no reminders 🙂

It’s funny how some people come into our life and we have no idea that they will be the ones who help shape us, love us, and hold us up when it’s hard to stand. Sometimes we have no idea just how important someone will be on our journey. Some people come into our lives and barely leave a trace, others leave footprints etched upon our hearts, letting us know they are with us every step we take.
Do you that one best friend who is funny and dramatic at the same time? I do and it’s his birthday today!! The reason I am dedicating this write up to him is because some years ago, a gem was born on this day. That gem I am writing about is none other than my best friend, Ahsan Habib Qureshi.

I would take this opportunity today to tell him through this blog post about how important he is!

He’s my friend not only because of how he was but because I can be un-apologetically myself around him. I believe Allah put him in my life because HE knew how much I needed him as a best friend.

I can tell him things that I’ve never shared with another soul and he absorbs everything I say and actually want to hear more. When something wonderful happens, I can’t wait to tell him about it, knowing he will share in my excitement. I can be myself and not worry about what he will think because he likes me the way I am. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk are cherished by him. I find strength in knowing that I have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal till the end.

He taught me that friends never judge each other no matter what. He taught me to face my fears. I owe you for that, my friend! There’s no need for continuous conversation. But in fact I feel quite content in just having him nearby because together we are stronger, braver and damn right invincible! 😉

I don’t think I will ever meet someone that I could actually compare with him. Nobody make me laugh quite as genuinely as he can. This guy just makes all that stress and tension melt away!

Happy Birthday Ahsan 🙂    happy-birthday-viiiiiiiiih-3---3460409,050520151507

Thank you for being my partner-in-crime, my telepathic pal, my gossip partner {IYKWIM ;)} my personal life coach and so much more.

Thank you for being a true friend. For sticking by me, for allowing me to repeat that same old tiresome story you’ve heard a trillion times before. Thank you for letting me vent out my feelings. Thank you for staying constant in a world full of change and chaos. And thank you for just being there when I need you. You are selfless, compassionate and wise beyond your years.

Couple of years from now, I hope I will still be glued to your friendship. I have no doubt that you will still be the person who could turn my every frown into a smile, the person who lifts me up when I am losing faith. You’re the one who makes life come to life. tumblr_ma9infpJtw1rvvrm4o1_500Hope we get more such wonderful memories to cheer on, cherish and celebrate. May all the pieces of your puzzle fall perfectly into place, all your desires and dreams come true. Stay blessed and stay the same ❤
