Suede Jacket and Street Shoes

So my mom always forwards me funny videos and texts – its sort of her thing. It is usually a health related topic, or some new recipe, but sometimes it is just a funny story or a life lesson. Here was today’s story which definitely made me chuckle. I don’t have a clue if its a true story, btw, actually I’m pretty sure it isn’t. Hope you enjoy!

When Mahathma Gandhi was studying law at the University College, London, a professor, whose last name was Peters, disliked him intensely.

One day, Mr. Peters was having lunch at the dining room when Ghandi  came along with his tray & sat next to the professor.

The professor said,
“Mr Ghandi, you do not understand, a pig & a bird do not sit together to eat.”

Ghandji looked at him as a parent would a rude child & calmly replied,
“You do not worry professor. I’ll fly away,”
and he went and sat at another table.

Mr. Peters,  reddened with rage, decided to take revenge.

The next day in Class he posed the following question:
“Mr. Ghandi, if you were walking down the street and found a package, and within was a bag of wisdom & another bag with money, which one would you take ?”

Without hesitating, Ghandi responded, “The one with the money, of course.”

Mr. Peters , smiling sarcastically said,
“I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom.”

Mahathma Gandhi  shrugged & responded, “Each one takes what he doesn’t have.”

Mr. Peters, by this time was fit to be tied. So great was his anger that he wrote on Mahathma Ghandi’s exam sheet the word “IDIOT”
and gave it to Ghandi

Ghandi took the exam sheet & sat down at his desk trying very hard to remain calm while he contemplated his next move.

A  few  minutes later, Mahathma Ghandhi got up, went to the professor & told him in a dignified polite tone,

“Mr. Peters, you signed the sheet, but you did not give me a grade.”

In other news, pregnancy is going well so far, not much time left but I’m getting bigger every day. I have been lucky to not have any major issues this trimester, and besides getting no sleep  I really have no complaints. Just ready to meet the little babe finally! This time will be so different for me, as my career life has completely changed – I won’t have to go straight back to work and I will have a lot more time to spend with her than I did with Adam. I remember crying every day for the first week at work when I had to leave Adam at daycare at just three months old. After that I was just miserable at work, but I eventually got used to the routine so it wasn’t unbearable after a while. It was then I started this blog and at the time, I had no idea this lifestyle was even possible. Something just made me do it! It just reinforces my belief that where there’s a will, there’s a way!

Thanks for visiting as always! xx

  • Slightly terrified because I just hit publish on a new YouTube video where I am completely makeup free (and possibly too close up - nose hair close 😬) reviewing the new clean skincare line @oneoceanbeauty that I have been testing for the past 8 weeks. I thought about not posting the video because watching it brought out a lot of my insecurities - about aging and wrinkles, my asymmetrical face, my unfortunate eyebrows - but I decided to do it because I love seeing other women who are confident and comfortable in their own makeup free skin and I want to be that too! 🙌🏾 #cleanskincare #cleanbeauty #skincareroutine

  • When at least one of us is looking at the camera, it’s a win 🙌🏾 Also, I’m holding the rocks she collected for her - lol - We are staying cozy  inside today, carving pumpkins and watching movies ~ a Sunday well spent 💕 what are you all up to? #mommyandme #pumpkinpatch #fallthings
  • #flashbackfriday Scrolling through my iCloud and came across this family picture shot by @jorellegates. Two thoughts: 1) I can’t believe how teeny my babies are And 2) we need to take more family pictures! Do you guys get professional family pics done? If yes, how often? With Adam we did it every season but now we can’t seem to get our act together ~ even for someone who takes pictures constantly I can’t seem to do it 😔 #fambam #momswithcameras
  • Thinking about what my next YouTube video should be? I’m thinking of organizing my kitchen/pantry/junk drawer (for some good old organization porn) - or a Fall outfit look book featuring only stuff I already own (restyled) and the only new stuff would be thrifted? Which would you want to see first?? Let me know! #tgif #styleinspo
  • Sophie’s face whenever I try to take her picture - either that or she’s running away 😑 Today we took a spontaneous trip to the pumpkin farm ~ I got my fill of apple cider donuts - which is the real reason why I love to go tbh - but the real question is which are your fave, glazed or cinnamon/sugar??? #momswithcameras #pumpkinpatch
  • Last nights look for a little soirée with the @urbandecaycosmetics team! What could be better than a night of makeup and pizza??? I’ll wait... #udallnighter #chicagoblogger #makeupparty
  • Smiling because a new YouTube video is now live on my channel! Sharing how I meal prepped this week’s lunch - it is a really easy beef stew recipe - (it’s also a really good veggie stew if you don’t eat meat!) Hope you guys enjoy! Also hooray for wool hat weather! 🙌🏾 #newvideo #youtube #mealprep
  • #flashbackfriday to a preppy Zahra in college (when I worked at Hollister 🙃) and polo shirts were life - also my parents had that plaid couch for a decade and that treadmill was NEVER used. Lastly, thick eyebrows weren’t cool yet FYI. #TGIF #goodtimes
  • A peek inside my ‘creative mess’ aka my office where I finally finished editing a new YouTube video  it’s a quick (under 5 minute) makeup tutorial using a lot of new @ctilburymakeup I recently picked up (and btw absolutely LOVE)- for a really fresh ‘enhanced natural’ face. Hope you enjoy!
