HOW TO START A RENOVATION PROJECT

Three years ago when we purchased our current home we couldn’t stop cheesing! We were lucky enough to get a great deal and more space than we could’ve imagined within our budget. Right from the start there were a few things that we knew we wanted to change. Although it was a new built, it was a little bit more traditional than our style, but for the time being it was perfect.

Over the last few years we have changed out most of the light fixtures, replaced the carpet with hardwood, and added pieces that really make our home ours. This year we are making …

THE PERFECT PAIR OF PANTS

Although you’ll rarely see me in a professional work environment (working from home can do that to ya), luckily blogging gives me an outlet where I can have fun with my wardrobe. Working from home has it’s perks, but if there’s one thing I miss it’s dressing up!

These pants are perfect for anyone, whether you work in a school with children, or if you are the #bosslady running into a meeting. They definitely statement pants, but don’t be fooled… they feel like pajamas! Style them with a body suit like I am here, or pair them with a fun bold sweater to stay cozy …

BUILDING A GOOD FOUNDATION FOR YOUR RELATIONSHIP

Aziz & I are coming up on our five year anniversary (dating + marriage) early next year and as I look back at our time together I remember all the work and effort that went into creating a strong foundation for our relationship. Each hurdle had an outcome, and each outcome is now the strength of the bond we have created.

There are plenty of strategies that you can use to set the right foundation for your relationship. Lucky for you, I’m five years in which means five years of experience which I hope can help you.

TABLE TALK | HEALTHY SEEKH KABAB

One of my greatest memories growing up is having my entire extended family over for a huge gathering at least once a year. The one thing I remember from these get-togethers is my mom serving a ginormous platter of seekh-kababs over rice for everyone. It was no-doubt, my absolute favorite food ever and these kababs were my favorite part about these parties.   Read More

3 TIPS TO BE MORE PRODUCTIVE IN YOUR DAY

Since I decided not to get a full time job over a year ago, planning my days have been a learning experience. Ever since I can remember, I’ve always had a schedule, somewhere to be early in the morning or someone counting on me to get something done. Now that I’m home most of the days I had to make my own schedule. The first few months were fun, I could get up whenever I wanted, eat whenever I wanted, I could even stay in my pjs all day if I wanted. Eventually that got old and I started to realize I wasn’t getting as …

THE COAT YOU NEED IN YOUR COLLECTION

It seems that Georgia finally got the memo and is officially in fall mode, hallelujah!  I’ve been dying to pull out this coat that I purchased in Europe last month. I truly believe every women should have a these essentials in her closet for fall and winter; A black coat, a camel coat, a trench coat, a red coat, and lastly a light weight jacket. If you don’t have all these down worry, I myself just added 3 out of the 5 I just mentioned. The trick is to add at least one each year and in a few years you’ll have all the major essentials …

THREE ADULT INVESTMENTS TO MAKE

As I enter my late 20’s I’ve realized that #adulting is no joke. I mean boy, we spoiled by our parents who did our laundry until college, the high-school teachers who followed up with us about due-dates and lastly that steady high school job or allowance that we used to pay for all of our “important” lunch dates with old friends (which don’t seem so important anymore).

At this age, #adulting has a whole other meaning. You mean I have to get groceries, prepare dinner, do and fold the laundry, keep the house clean, work a full time job, stay up to date on the latest …

HOW TO DRESS FOR FALL IN THE SOUTH

It’s barely fall here in Georgia and a pumpkin spice latte isn’t the only thing I’ve been avoiding this season, throw chunky sweaters and OTK boots in the mix and you’ve got my fall in a nutshell. Good news is that apparently the weather is cooling down next week, or so the Apple weather app suggests (the high 60’s is ‘cooling down’).

MY FALL DINING ROOM TABLESCAPE

Besides cozying up on my couch with my pumpkin spice candle burning on the coffee table, and indulging in apple pie for the next few months, my favorite part about fall is adding touches to my home that reflect the new season. Although I usually don’t go “nuts” with the fall decor around here, because I go absolutely crazy with my christmas decor, this year I was unusually excited about ringing in the new season.

The best part about being in a home for a few years is that you accumulate decorations throughout the years, so I didn’t really have to buy too many new things to …

TIPS FOR PLANNING A PHOTOSHOOT IN A DIFFERENT COUNTRY

A photoshoot is the best way to remember an incredible trip abroad. We visited Paris last year, but unfortunately we were overwhelmed with sightseeing, so we didn’t give enough thought to getting our photos taken. We regretted that decision immediately. This year, we didn’t want to make that mistake again when we had a quick stopover in the city of love before continuing on our journey to Italy.

If you are planning a trip to Paris, or anywhere else in the world, (we had our photos taken in Singapore absolutely loved them, check them out below) then here are some quick and easy tips to make …
