The Best Instagram accounts for Brown girls

Here are some Instagram accounts that all brown girls need to be following. These accounts really close the gap between culture and social media and if you feel like you can’t relate, check these gems out!

@BrownGirlMemes – I love a good meme – like that white guy blinking a lot – but sometimes a good desi meme is what I need. I end up sharing them with my mum sometimes and you know its a good meme when both you and your mum can find them relatable. So much of brown culture like Bollywood, strict parent jokes and “Pooja, what is this behaviour” memes are missing from mainstream meme accounts and this account really delivers on those

 

@BrownHistory – This account retells stories and memories from people’s POV. There’s some really heart warming stories about how parents fell in love, powerful moments in history and pictures which tell a thousand stories across the diaspora.

@ Browngirlgang – An empowering and uplifting space with South Asian women worldwide. From hilarious TikToks, make up looks, Bollywood appreciation and the odd post about chai, this account is a must-follow.

@Browngirltherapy – There’s a large gap in the mental health community for brown people and this page is all about promoting therapy and self-love. Mainstream mental health pages don’t always touch on the link between mental illness and bicultural identity and this page really accesses this.

@BritishBindi – A page run by 3 South Asian best friends. Inspiring, comforting and more memes. Follow if you want a laugh and an insight into South Asian lifestyle and culture,

 

Pearl Palace Hotel Review

It was my first experience staying in a heritage hotel and the Pearl Palace in Jaipur, Rajesthan was the perfect choice. But what is a ‘heritage’ hotel, you ask? It can be defined as accomodation which has traditional architecture and has distinctive qualities which mirror the area’s way of life. *Boujie for cheap has entered the chat*

The artwork in this heritage hotel was breathtaking. There were statues and stonework recreating the multicultural aspects of India and it’s faiths. The bedrooms were themed and sported different colours, represented a diverse range of vibrant arts and were the perfect combination of luxury and tradition.

Check out how stunning the hotel is

Look at that artwork tho, damn. I felt like a princess entering my own palace. The staff were lovely and attentive. But the food. Two words: Aloo Paratha. Add a coffee and I was set up for the day. The sister hotel Pearl Palace is two blocks away and has a rooftop restaurant called The Peacock Rooftop Restaurant. I didn’t get a chance to dine there but some of the dishes featured sounded amazing; Paneer Butter Masala, Paneer Tikka etc. (If there was an award for how much Paneer a person could eat in a day, I would have won it by now).

I just loved the whole interior of the hotel and how it was Travelodge prices; it definitely gives British hotels a run for their money. Check it out: http://pearlpalaceheritage.com/. We paid  £191 for three nights (two rooms) which is a bargain.
