Eid with Sania Maskatiya + Love Zahra

Happy Eid to everyone who celebrates! This Eid has been extra special because now I have family here with me to celebrate with after years of being on my own in the Midwest. I’ve also made some amazing friends since moving to Chicago, and we had the opportunity to hang out during Ramadan which makes it so much more fun! Last night I attended a beautiful Chand Raat (eve of Eid) party where we got to shop some fabulous designer fashion in a private exhibition, and then mingle with friends and get our hands painted with henna, and of course eat traditional Pakistani food and dessert- there was even a gola ganda (shaved ice) station! It was the first time I had one since I was maybe 10? So good.
I had originally planned to wear this dress by designer Sania Maskatiya for the day of Eid, but I couldn’t wait and wore it last night instead. If you haven’t checked out Sania Maskatiya’s online shop, you must – it is filled with everything from casual contemporary pieces, to formal and traditional, all shoppable online! 
Before I left for the party, I asked the hubs to take a few pictures of me – see the whole outfit in detail below!

Hope you have a wonderful Eid! Thanks for stopping by!

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!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
