Gifts for HER {Part One}

I’ve been doing a lot of fun research on gift ideas, I have been going through website after website trying to find the perfect ideas, customized ideas are my favourite. A custom photo blanket is one gift I came up with and I could think of a few recipients who would appreciate one of those!
Speaking of recipients, I probably might have to come up with gifting ideas for each one in my life. For my friends, obviously, I’ll have to dig deeper for personalized gifts according to their choices. However, for my parents, I may have to start looking at personalized anniversary gifts right now itself, as they deserve the very best. With so many options available out there, I’m probably confused right now!
I also considered gifting a slim and light print canvas with our photo on it after learning about a company named Canvas Design, which has probably the cheapest canvas print with top-notch quality. But I also have a few other options to look at.
Anyway, it has been incredibly difficult to narrow down my list – so, I’ve decided to pick my top gift ideas, and split them up into two posts. I’ve been lusting over these headphones for a while now, and I can just imagine myself on an airplane or on a beach somewhere in my own world listening to my tunes with these.
These slippers are so cute and comfy, I’d love to slip them on after a hot bath and just unwind over the weekend. I also love how this Ann Taylor embellished collar can be added to a blazer or a coat for a festive look. Lastly, Jo Malone perfume is my current favorite – I love English Pear and Freesia the best – and the Red Roses bath oil is divine!

Stay tuned for more gift ideas! If you have any favorites – please share!

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!
