One of those #desi moments! #terrymardi
This is basically what the conscious of every brown girl looks like.
You have strong pleasure needs. Pleasure entails Fun, Joking, and Sensuality. Those who score high on these needs are happy-go-lucky and fun seeking, but also careless. Since pleasure is their predominant quest, they don’t believe that life should be taken too seriously. To them, every day should be a holiday. They much prefer play to work and consider weekends and vacation time as the ultimate rewards. They are funny and enjoy laughing at their own practical jokes and clownish shows, especially at parties where they can entertain cheerful guests. These are also individuals who like to be sensually excited and sexually aroused. They consider eroticism as a great source of gratification and express their sentimentality through caressing, tenderness, and loving care. They enjoy living one day at a time and prefer distraction to serious work.
Just because I love #popart ❤💛💚💙💜

Would you make babies to this song, or nah?
I went to the Indian food store today with my mom and I stumbled upon these, among a dozen other skin whitening products marketed towards both men and women. I’ve always known Fair and Lovely is a thing but Fair and Teens, a skin whitening product targeted specifically at young girls, makes me so so sad. That image alone comparing the before and after images of skin tone is so sickening to me and only perpetuates the shadism desi people experience every day in an effort to look as white as possible because apparently the only way to be beautiful is to be white. It just makes me so angry that products like this exist and that they’re indirectly responsible for a lot of young brown girls internalized hatred for their skin and their race. Speaking as someone that’s been there, please don’t fall into this trap. Your skin is beautiful no matter how dark or light it is.
