Guest Post – Looking Good Feeling Fab

Today’s post comes to you all the way from India, from one of the first people I met through the blogosphere, the beautiful Abhilasha. Her genuine, sweet personality and impeccable taste make her so incredibly easy to like. She has stayed a constant inspiration for me with her blog Looking Good Feeling Fab where she offers beautiful imagery, creative outfits (both Eastern and Western style), fashion show coverage, youtube videos, and fashion collaborations with some of India’s top designers.

Get to know Abhilasha a little more below and check out more of her looks on her blog!

It is such a pleasure to interact with all the gorgeous “Love Zahra” readers. I have been a big fan of Zahra’s style and blog for a long time now and I am delighted to be a part of this beautiful space today. Thank you Zahra for letting me do this, for being such an inspiration and a delight to interact with, always.
We are bang in the middle of the Indian summer and in spite of its extremities and torturously high temperatures, it remains my favorite time of the year. The bright and beautiful flowers all around, the most luxurious fruits – sweet juicy mangoes, lychees, berries in every color and memories of summer holidays spent with the family are partly to be blamed for my summer obsession.
As a student, summer always meant holidays, all the cousins meeting together in my Grandparents home in Delhi – playing, fighting, eating, laughing and doing nothing at all. Times have changed so much, those holidays exist no more, those happy gatherings of cousins have vanished, and everyone is busy in a life of their own. The only thing that remains is memories, those memories are trapped deep within my heart and I refuse to let go of those summer afternoons of my childhood.
Summer will always be bright beautiful and cheery yellow for me and so is this post…a hint of red to break the brightness..

I hope you enjoyed the post and a glimpse of Indian Summer and fashion..

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 ❤️

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!
