Today’s look is my fail proof look, that is a leopard print blouse, leggings, and high heels. Okay maybe I feel like I’m channeling a little Sasha Fierce whenever I wear it, (I’m seeing Beyonce in July and can’t wait…) I believe there is always room for more leopard in any closet! I’m also always on the lookout for a great pair of leggings, and this Paige pair is one that I’m currently loving.

Okay first off, just to make your day a little better, I suggest you read This Article on why everyone should watch The Mindy Project. So funny. A friend posted it on Facebook, and I just had to share it with you all. Thanks Shamster!

 By the way, I was listening to the radio this morning – Just Jenny! For you Sirius/XM listeners out there – and she was talking about how the Hilton hotel in New York is going to get rid of room service all together, and that this trend might actually become the norm with hotel chains. I don’t know about you guys but I would be so upset if this happened! I, like Jenny, love ordering room service and it is one of the things I love about hotels! 

Once on a date night we dropped our little one off with the grandparents, and the hubs and I stayed overnight at the Trump Hotel Chicago and we actually ordered room service for our dinner instead of going to one of the many amazing restaurants in the city. That is how much I love it. 

What do you guys think about this? Would you be like whatever about it or would you be devastated like me?

On another note, I will be attending the grand opening of the new LOFT store in Chicago on Michigan Ave. Wednesday night – I’m so excited to attend this event for a store that I absolutely love – and I hope to see all of you there!

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!
