A tete-a-tete with Scaryammi



A face to face with Scaryammi, a blog for all moms out there who can relate to the experiences of a Paki mommy!

Why did you call your blog Scaryammi? Are you trying to scare the kids? No, The blog and mothering support group is called Scaryammi because I based it on my own experience as a mom. I define myself as a Scaryammi because I feel I am a tiger mom, through and through! I drive myself hard and push my kids even harder. I want my children to learn the value of hard work and commitment at an early age and hence I push them to excel. Being a type A ambitious mom makes me a Scaryammi and this platform is about uniting all mothers with dreams and ambitions for their children. 

What do you hope to achieve through this platform? I am eager to provide a helpful, informative and supportive platform for all mothers across Pakistan and abroad. I have always believed that when mommies help out other mommies, the results are magical. I hope to provide mothers with a much-needed platform which provides answers to questions such as ‘where can we find an urdu tutor’ to support for mommies suffering from post partum depression.

How do you think scaryammi is making a difference? I think only in the span of 3 months Scaryammi has already made a difference. Every month we do a theme and we always pick up topics that no one else is discussing for our themes. So last month we discussed Post Partum Depression and many, many women came forth and spoke on the page about battling depression after having a child. It was really awe-inspiring.

What is the theme for this month? We are discussing body shaming this month and talking about the criticism women get for being over weight or too thin or in between. A number of women have come forth with their remarkable stories of how taunts and comments has shaped the way they see themselves.

You have these super cute mugs which have a funny Scaryammi statement on them; what is that? The mugs state: “Don’t make me use my scaryammi voice.” I love these!

Tell us about the super popular events you are always conducting.  We do a lot of learning and networking events which are aimed at helping build a community both online and offline. Our nutrition events have developed a loyal following and every month we have a heated discussion about weight and fitness. Our playdates are super popular and sells out within hours and the same is the case with our professional mommies networking lunch. 

Where do you see Scaryammi going? I see it going far, far, far away. Into a not-so-scary future. 

What project are you most excited about in the near future? I am super psyched about the conference of inspiration which will be taking place on 9th February and has an amazing line-up of speakers such as Anjum Ahmed, Qasim Ali Khan and many others. Natty is hosting the event. Sophiya is hosting the orange carpet and we are eager to be part of an event where we will be able to inspire women. The tagline of the event is: To inspire women is to inspire an entire generation. 


The Best Dressed Celebrities at Paris Haute Couture 2019 Fashion Week



Many of the world’s finest celebrities flew to Paris over the weekend to indulge in some stunning high fashion at Paris Haute Couture 2019 Fashion Week. But they didn’t just observe. Whether they were sitting front row or snapped heading into a show, they also embraced their own eye-catching senses of style and we narrowed it down to the best ones!

Celine Dion is essentially the queen of Paris Fashion Weeks, turning the streets into her own personal runway. Wearing some of her wackiest and coolest looks yet, this year’s Haute Couture week has been no different. Her first official Haute Couture Fashion Week event was Schiaparelli, which would be presenting its first collection under Daniel Roseberry’s creative direction. Dion had a custom look made by Roseberry—a black halter-necked dress with a pleated skirt and matching elbow-length gloves. She finished it off with a headpiece by Stephen Jones, milliner to the stars, and sunglasses by Féroce.

Mandy Moore just made the streets of Paris a real life runaway. The This Is Us actress is most certainly cementing her place in the fashion industry and has proven herself quite the fashionista . Wearing a sheer striking blue cape dress with an embellished golden belt created by designer Peter Dundas, at the Dundas Fall 2020 Haute Couture Fashion show, the brunette beauty bewitched everyone with her outfit and equally mesmerizing makeup look.

Check out the chicest look on our newest MJ: Zendaya. She wore a cropped whitetuxedo shirt with slouchy plain black ankle cut trousers that displayed her tights and stiletto heels. She had her hair slicked back and we just can’t get over how perfectly she pulled this look off at the Armani Privé Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2019 show on July 2!

Margot Robbie: For the Chanel Haute Couture Fall-Winter show on July 2, the Once Upon a Time In Hollywood actress rocked a black and white checkered jacket with criss-cross print tweed pants matching with plain back heels and it surprisingly worked! Keeping casual, simple but chic.

This just might be the blonde beauty’s most daring outfit to date. Christina Aguilera dons a vintage tattoo kimono-style dress with a corset (that acts as a belt), black knee-high boots paired with flashy accessories and makes a statement with red lips and nails at the Jean Paul Gaultier Haute show.
