• You Look Oily

    I’ll take that as a compliment. Fall is finally here which means one thing, dry skin. I have naturally oily combination skin which means sometimes I will skip moisturizing because I feel since my skin produces so much oil, I can afford it. WRONG. When you have oily skin & avoid layering on some light moisturizer, you’re causing your skin to over produce oil because it feels some areas are lacking, it will over produce causing you to think your skin is oily! I’ve noticed when I keep my skin lightly hydrated, I am less shiny throughout the day. So, I’ve put together a list of my favorite skin moisturizers,…

  • It’s My Birthday!

    The day is finally here! It’s my 27th birthday! The older you get the quicker these birthdays start coming around. Last year this time, I was having a complete freak out about turning 26. That year also being my Golden Year…turning 26 on the 26th! I was so freaked out about getting older & not being exactly where I envisioned myself to be. After my 20s, birthdays have always been a day filled with anxiety & me stressing out. Until now.. Something I’ve learned is that instead of spending your birthday & the weeks before freaking out, enjoy how far you’ve come! Take a second & look back at all…

  • Rushing Down the Aisle

    We’ve all been there. We have all felt the pressure of getting married before we get “too old.” I’ve definitely felt this pressure growing up in a middle eastern family. So I wanted to take this moment to just let all the women & young girls out there who are feeling the pressure of getting married that there is no rush! Marriage is a sacred & beautiful moment in a persons life that should be done when you’re ready! You should never feel pressured to make such a big step based on how others feel. Your parents, friends, next door neighbor already had their moment. Don’t be so afraid that…

  • Yellow Watermelon + Mint

    I’ve really been into juicing lately & making my own juices at home. I’ve picked some of my favorite fruits & veggies, threw it all in a blender, & made my own juice! So refreshing. Here is what you need to get started: Watermelon! (mine was yellow but you can use regular watermelon lol) Fresh mint Fresh Basil Cucumber A squeeze of lemon juice All these ingredients are cheaper than buying a $15 juice out in the stores & so much more fresh!
