Thank you for visiting Love Zahra! I’m Zahra Sandberg, a style and beauty lover, married to the love of my life, Tom. We have two babies, Adam and Sophia, and two fur babies, Briggs and Sheema. I’m really proud of my Pakistani heritage and always try to incorporate my culture in life and style decisions. Traveling is my favorite thing to do, and I’ve lived all over the country – born in Pennsylvania, raised in California, went to college in New York, and now happily call Chicago home. Besides makeup and fashion, I am passionate about living life to the fullest, unapologetically. It surprises a lot of people when I tell them this, but I also write and perform stand-up comedy.

 Love Zahra launched in 2012 because I needed a creative outlet to share my outfit ideas, honest beauty reviews, travel advice, home decor projects, and latest shopping discoveries.  After a few years I realized I wanted to use my influence to affect positive change in the world, so now I also include personal stories about my own struggles in life, with motherhood, faith, fitness, marriage – no topic is off-limits. I write as a form of therapy for me, but also with the hopes that it may help someone else who may be going through a tough time.  As often as possible, I like to feature  inspiring women who are helping to change the world for the better.

After leaving my corporate career in 2016, I now work full-time as a blogger in addition to being a full-time mom. Life is always busy and never not crazy, but I love it and wouldn’t want it any other way.

Thank you so much for visiting my little piece of the internet! In case no one has told you today, I love you, you’re cute, and – nice butt!

  • When aunties are way cooler than you...
Took my mom to see her childhood bestie (who happens to live here) and ate up all their stories about life in Pakistan before they had any kids - they were both full-time teachers, obsessed with makeup and fashion, and to my surprise - apparently very big on playing pranks on each other! They would put on a burqa and go knock on doors and scare their friends 😂 (I was like wait - are you still talking about my mom??) I’ll never judge an aunty again...
  • New Zealand. Tree of Life. Countless others...when are we going to acknowledge White Supremacy as what it actually is, TERRORISM. I directly blame Fox News and other major right wing media outlets for influencing these hateful (probably uneducated) people. When we demonize people to the level where they are inhuman (children in cages at the border) we open up the possibility to do the most evil without regard. I hesitated on posting this because I like to keep things light around here - but damn, I realize I really don’t have that privilege...ignoring the news isn’t something I can just do as a brown Muslim woman ~ my family is at the mosque every Friday praying - what I want to know is, what can we do to really make change?? Eff the NRA and all the corporations that benefit off of human suffering!
  • Don’t worry baby girl, what’s mine is yours! (Note the backward shoe in pic 3 😂) #playingdressup #momswithcameras
  • Drove mom all the way out to Devon for some Falooda and shopping - but baby Soph fell asleep and I know better than to mess with her nap time so...in the car I shall stay. #dontwakethebaby #likeever #faloodatogo
  • ‘And this one will make your skin baby soft...’
never too early to start learning proper skincare! (In reality she was trying to grab everything off of every shelf so I had to strap her in the stroller and have my mom take her outside so I could get what I needed 😂 - @anastasiabeverlyhills brow pencil, @theouai wave spray) #lesigh #momlife
  • Happy bday to my little man ~ cheers to 8 years! (And we are officially done with birthdays for the year hallelujah! 🙏🏾)
  • 15 year old Zahra would be so proud of this look ~ story time: I bought this necklace from a lady on the beach in Jamaica who was so sweet - she suggested I buy a toe ring anklet thing and I said my feet are way too ugly for that - she told me I was beautiful and sternly advised me never to say bad stuff about myself again - so I said Awww thank you! ok give me like three more shell necklaces 💁🏾‍♀️ The end.
  • DIY face mask: ingredient: Peanut butter (also yes this was a b* to clean up 😱) #momswithcameras
  • Spending some quality time with my mom this week! I’m pretty sure I got all of my best traits from her ❤️ even the ones that bother her the most...🤭 😊Also a peek at the living room progress - so far we have new paint and a new couch! Currently sourcing gold sconces, a console table for the record player, and wall art and accessories. I love shopping second-hand, vintage and artisan made, where are your favorite places to shop for home?? #internationalwomensday #mothersanddaughters
