4 THINGS YOU SHOULD BE DOING AS AN ADULT

#Adulting hit me hard when Aziz & I decided to get married when I was only 23 years old. I had never lived on my own, let alone with a boy! Nor had I ever, written a check, cleaned an entire house (not just my room when I was told), gone to the doctor alone, cooked every single day, I didn’t even know how much a mortgage payment or regular bills cost! I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I decided to get married, I mean I knew it would mean living with the boy I love, but I had no idea about all

GOODBYE FALL

I hope everyone had an amazing long weekend, and an eventful Thanksgiving with their family and friends!

There’s something beautiful in saying goodbye to one season, and welcoming the next one. Fall is always a great transition into winter (my favorite season ever) and the best thing about fall is the fashion options! I absolutely love dressing in coats, chunky sweaters, and earth-tones. This Thanksgiving I opted out of wearing anything too form fitting (give me all the yummy Thanksgiving food) and chose something classic, yet comfy.

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 …

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.

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 …

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’).
