Black + White

Summer is all about bright colors, we get it, but nothing will ever ever top a classic black & white. Continuing on our summer style sesh, we begin with a minimal foundation. All. white. everything. For this particular look, a simple chiffon top tucked into a white Zara panel skort gives us the pristine palette we need to begin […]

White + Colour

For this look, I have loaded up on all things Zara. I mean, I am still recovering from how dope their recent sale was. Anyways, summer style, to me, is a combination of neutrals and a pop of color. Stepping away from what’s expected is what it’s all about, and things like crop tops, jean shorts, […]

Ramadan Steez

It’s that wonderful time of the year when the days are long and hot, and the fasting is in full swing for observing Muslims around the world!

Basic Skin Wins

     Unfortunately, I suffer from really dry, temperamental skin. I have tried so many moisturizers and skincare products from Aveda, Lush, BareMinerals, etc. and even got some medical cream called “Elta”, but for some reason, nothing really worked for me. My grandma urged to then try an all-natural/holistic route, so I bought aloe vera gel […]

Bikram Yoga & Meditation

While I have a strong dance background, I really let myself go health-wise the past four years due to poor eating habits, lack of self-control, and sheer laziness. As much as people hate on how flaky new years resolutions are, I look at it as a clean slate. The most enduring resolutions are ones grounded […]

Makeup for the Beauty Challenged

I have gone on record many times to say how basic my “makeup routine” actually is (or lack thereof, really). Seems these days everyone is a YouTube or Instagram makeup guru/celebrity, and I’m still sopping Vaseline on my face. Don’t get me wrong, I know my eye makeup and lipsticks, so I’m not completely illiterate, […]

A Bride’s Do-Not-Do List

The evolution of a girl into a bride is honestly like that of a scary Pokemon, or moldy bread. Brides are truly some of the most ridiculous, exorbitant creatures, creating mass chaos and frenzy at every turn. As a freshly engaged, bride-to-be, I find myself and others, committing some awful bridal dont’s from the onset, though I’m […]
