Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif praised the initiative taken by Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy's Oscar nominated documentary against honour killing - 'A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness."

“Islam discourages violence against women, and there is no honour in honour killings ” said the premier at the screening of the documentary at the Prime Minister House.

Director and producer Chinoy's documentary, A Girl in the River: The price of forgiveness, is a story of a rare survivor (a girl) who falls in love. However, she was shot and thrown in river by her father for her mistake of marrying a man of her own choice. The brave girl survives to tell the tale.

As a filmmaker, Chinoy won an Academy Award for her documentary Saving Face (2012) and two Emmy Awards for her documentaries Pakistan's Taliban Generation (2010) and Saving Face (2012).



The Caged Bird......

Maya Angelou. Photo WEB

Today I want to share with all you a poem by an American author, poet, civil rights activist and a super inspirational person for millions of people around the world, I am talking about Maya Angelou.

Angelou is famous for her award-winning books and poetry. She is also the first black woman who entered the dazzling world of Hollywood as director, producer and writer. She even starred in different productions for film, TV and stage.

Photo: WEB

Here is her lovely poem named "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings"

The free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill for the caged bird
sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird

sings of freedom.

I hope you enjoyed reading this beautiful poetry =)


What is Beauty?


Sophia Loren. Photo: Web
  Beauty is much more than beautifying – it is absolutely not about good looks. Exquisite beauty is rather an influence, an emotion that can be seen through the eyes of a person. 

 According to an Academy Award-winning Italian actress Sophia Loren;

“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.”

Review - ELMORE Soft Skin Hydrate

Photo: Oh, Lady Mania!

Hello Everyone, we hope all of you beauties are doing fine and enjoying winters. Although winter season is great to enjoy a lot of things such as hot soups, dry fruits and many other things. However, there is one thing that really annoys many of us during winters. It is the dryness of the skin that irritates too much.

To cope up the dry skin issue, me and my sister surveyed local shopping malls for some good moisturizing hand and body lotion. From the vast variety of lotions we finally selected ELMORE Soft Skin Hydrate Lotion in a 250 ml packaging.

Here is our review about this lotion:

The Brand Claims:

ELMORE Soft Skin Hydrate is enriched with natural Aloe Vera and Avocado Extracts, a light weight and non - greasy lotion for all skin types. It provides continuous moisturization so your skin looks and feels its best all day.

Photo: Oh, Lady Mania!
My Verdict:

For me, ELMORE Soft Skin Hydrate Natural Moisturizing body lotion solved the dry skin problem in true sense. I used it particularly for the neck area, hands and feet. It provided a long lasting moisturization to my skin. I especially love the silky soft touch it gave to my skin. The most important thing about  ELMORE Soft Skin Hydrate lotion is that I felt nothing greasy, it truly nourishes the skin all day long still without a sign of any greasiness.

If you are living in an area with too much dryness in the atmosphere, apply it two to three times a day for the best results or after every shower.

This lotion wonderfully suits all skin types.

My Rating:

I would rate it 4.5/5


ELMORE Soft Skin Hydrate lotion can be purchased from local shops as well as online in an affordable price.



Review - Essence I Heart NUDE Eyeshadow

Photo: Oh, Lady Mania!
Hello everyone.  I was in search of an eye shadow that can be used for multiple purposes. My search ended when I found Essence I Heart NUDE Eye shadow shades in a local mall. I selected 03 Creme Brulee tone. In this post I will share my experience with you all.

First let's see what the product claims;

The Brand Claims:

This eye shadow is from the Limited Edition I <3 Nude range. The brand claims that it is a baked eye shadow with a Satin Smooth texture for a luminous long lasting eye makeup. It comes in a 1.8 grams plastic packaging with a transparent lid.

Photo: Oh, Lady Mania!

My Verdict:

Essence I Heart NUDE 03 Creme Brulee is a very light in shade with shimmer hint. First, I tried it over a coat of eye primer. The result was fabulous. It blended well and gives a super smooth coverage with fine pigmentation.

For the second time, I wore it directly without any use of eye primer. Again the result was amazing. It was very easy to apply it on eyelid. It didn't stick in pigmented patches on the skin. In fact, its high satin texture blended comfortably to give a good little shimmery look.

Photo: Oh, Lady Mania!

Essence I Heart NUDE 03 Creme Brulee is really a long lasting eye shadow as it stayed excellently for 4 to 6 hours. I would recommend it for its best results.

The most amazing thing about Essence I Heart NUDE 03 Creme Brulee is that you can use it as a neutral eye shadow as well as for the highlight purpose. It is available in affordable price.

My Rating:

I will rate this product 4/5.


It is easily available in local shopping centers and can be purchased online.

Recipe - Fried Fish With Rice

Fried Fish With Rice. Photo: Oh, Lady Mania!

 Almost everyone loves to eat fish based dishes. It may be the simple curry or tempura pieces or spicy fried fillets, fish is essential part of food for many of us. 

In our home, we usually like to cook fish with our own home made "Masala" (spice mixture). However, for this recipe me and my sister decided to try some locally available packet masala. 

Photo: Oh, Lady Mania!

From wide range of packets, we selected "Shan Fried Fish". Shan's spice mixture is available in 50 gm packaging, it is enough for 750 gm to 1 kg fish. We mostly like to have boneless fish dishes. Hence, for this recipe we used boneless fish fillets. You can use boneless pieces or whatever you want. 

Photo: Oh, Lady Mania!


We followed the recipe instructions step by step printed on the packet. The easy steps are as follows:

Add 3 tbsp lemon juice in raw fish and leave it for 10 minutes then rinse it with tap water and pat dry each fish piece with kitchen tissue.

Mix garlic paste, Shan fried fish masala and oil in fish as per packet instructions.

Leave marinated fish for 2 hours.

For Batter:

Take 1 cup gram flour (baisan) in a bowl, add 1 egg in it and mix.

Add water in above mixture to make smooth - thin paste. 

Dip marinated fish in this batter and deep fry till golden color.

We served this delicious crispy fried fish with Chickpea Pulao. It was very yummy with a totally different taste. Shan spice mixture is balanced in its ingredients and enhanced the flavor of fish fillets. 



Review - Makeup Revolution London Nail Polish

Photo: Oh, Lady Mania!

Hello everyone, I recently bought some new shades of Makeup Revolution London nail polish. There is a variety of beautiful bright to natural colors available in affordable price. I selected 'Flawless', 'Take Me', 'Heaven's Above', and 'Make Me'.

In my today's post I will review the shade 'Make Me 15'. It is a gorgeous greenish color in 12 ml packing. Its brush is big enough for an even smooth application.

Photo: OH Lady Mania

It is highly pigmented product which gives beautiful shiny hue in a single coat. However, for a darker tone, two coats are enough.

It dries very quickly. I applied a single coat and it looked wonderful with a fine polished shimmering covering. The longevity of applied MUR nail polish lasts for 4 days.

Overall, Makeup Revolution London nail polish is a good option for a long-wear enamel and most importantly it is easily available in the market.
