A Little Pink

To continue my obsession with metallics, I picked up these flats and I have worn them every day since! I’ve always been a fan of a pointed toe shoe – flats or heels – and silver is a neutral in my opinion. This is a weekend look I’d wear to run errands or just  to hang out with friends and family.

Flats: Zara   Jacket: Nordstrom Rack Similar Style   Top: J.Crew   Jeans: Zara   Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff 
Necklace: F21  Bracelet:  J.Crew  Watch: Michael Kors   Sunnies: Ray-Ban 
Nails: OPI Malaysian Mist (New FAVE!)

This weekend was a busy one. I spent a lot of time cleaning and organizing on Saturday, and then treated myself to a little bit of “me time” at the salon. It’s all about balance in life, I always say! I also got my nails done and found a new favorite neutral polish – something I am constantly on the hunt for – it’s OPI Malaysian Mist. Try it! 
I did my good deed for the weekend when I let a teenage driver go after she rear-ended me. She was really apologetic and she was in the car with a bunch of girlfriends – I could see them dancing in the car from my rear-view. There really wasn’t any visible damage. I’ve been there, I’ve had my share of car accidents that were completely due to me not paying attention. I *may* have even had one because I was dancing and singing a song on the radio. Just maybe…
By the way, I can never get enough crossbody bags, can you? I love how this Rebecca Minkoff adds a little touch of pink to complete the look. 
Have a great week!

Last week we took a quick trip to escape the snow for some sunshine in Key Largo, Florida☀️ We spent every moment possible outside, Tom and Adam got their Scuba Diver PADI certification (yay!) while Sophia and I spent our days either swimming or drawing marine life and landscapes. This was my first trip after my sister passed last November, and even though I look so happy here, there were so many moments I felt the grief and sadness, as if it happened just yesterday. I am still figuring out how I want to show up in this space, as I have changed so much as a person since the loss. I just don’t feel called to post some of the things I shared before. Maybe that will change someday, or maybe it will just naturally evolve into something new. I think I will take this year to just process it all. (Even the idea of taking an entire year to think through something is a huge shift for my usually hyperactive type A personality) My focus at the moment is just living in the moment with my family and friends, spending time doing things that make me happy and healthy. I hope to share some of that journey here with you ~ thanks for following along ❤️
I had planned to shoot this outfit in collaboration with @lenacoutureofficial right before my dear sister passed away. Saba, the designer, was more than understanding if I didn’t want to anymore - but after thinking on it for a while I decided I wanted to - in my sister’s honor 💗 She was always my biggest hype woman. When i would feel like I’m not good enough or that I should quit (which was often) she would tell me I was unique and great and to keep it up. When I think of my sister, beauty and love is all that she embodied in her being. She expressed that on the outside also - as she loved to wear everything glam, bright & colorful, and full of bling. Hair done, nails done, everything did - that was Nusrat. For this shoot I took the time to get glam after a long hiatus - and makeup and hair took so long because I think I forgot how to do it, but afterwards I was surprised how I felt transformed. When I wore this gorgeous outfit that I know was designed with such love and incredible attention to detail by @lenacoutureofficial, I felt all of that beauty - like a walking piece of art, and very much at peace. Thank you so much to @divmophoto for capturing the feeling so well 💕
Ski weekend with my favorites ❄️❄️ So proud of Sophia for skiing on her own for the first time!
There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

Cozy for a coffee date ☕️
French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!
