WE’RE MAKING A BIG DECISION AT HOME

WE’RE MAKING A BIG DECISION AT HOME

There comes a time in every adult’s life when they get irrevocable obsessed with HGTV, Home Depot, and interior design blogs on Pinterest. It’s usually about the time when you are considering getting your own apartment, buying a condo, or even putting down roots in a house. It’s about the same time when you thought $120k was a realistic budget to have an open floor plan and a farmhouse sink. I mean, how the heck can a part-time hamster trainer and a freelance copywriter afford a 950k beachhouse with a sauna on House Hunters?! Sahir and I found ourselves in one of the many HGTV predicaments a couple of months ago and had to make a decision…

Why 50/50 In Relationships Isn’t Possible

Why 50/50 In Relationships Isn’t Possible

Disney & High School Musical have pretty much screwed us in terms of relationship expectations. I mean if you don’t meet your soulmate being forced to sing on a New Year’s Eve cruise with your family, where will you? In an age of split-second swiping decisions and terrible Tinder dates – you’d think that when you find a real relationship, the hard part is over. As your self-proclaimed fairy-god girlfriend it’s my job to give it to you straight. Relationships are hard and take effort to make them work. One of the biggest misconceptions is that 50/50 is the way to go and I’m here to tell you why that won’t work…

MID-PROGRAM BBG REVIEW

MID-PROGRAM BBG REVIEW

If you’ve never heard of #BBG then you are probably not on Instagram. BBG stands for “Bikini Body Guide” and it’s a workout program by Kayla Itsines that pretty much all of IG swears by. I know, terrible name. I actually read an interview where Kayla says her biggest regret is naming the program “bikini body”. Nonetheless, over 10 million women use her program and now that I’m halfway though my first round, I finally feel prepared to answer all of your questions and give you my honest opinion….

6 Habits That Every “20-Something” NEEDS To Start Immediately

6 Habits That Every “20-Something” NEEDS To Start Immediately

Science tells us that your brain caps off it’s second and last growth spurt in your 20s as it rewires itself for adulthood. So anything we want to change about ourselves, should happen now. It’s a fact that 85% of life’s most transformative moments happen before you are 35, so now is the time to take control. As 30 starts looming over my head, I realize that there are certain things we’ve just got to lock down when it comes to adulting. I’ve pretty much given up on being able to fold a fitted sheet, but I think there’s still hope when it comes to skincare and productivity. Here are 6 habits that you need to start in your 20s…

Not Your Mom’s Chicken Corn Soup

Not Your Mom’s Chicken Corn Soup

A soup that can make it to table in less than 15 minutes? Is it even possible? Yes! It’s amazing what the wonder of canned ingredients can do. This recipe is just like my mom’s, but takes about 1/4 of the time. Honestly, every time that I make it, I feel like I’m eating a little taste of my childhood…

DEEPEN & FIX YOUR HAIR COLOR AT HOME

DEEPEN & FIX YOUR HAIR COLOR AT HOME

I was probably 15 when I first got my hair colored. I wanted highlights, but wasn’t sure what the right color for me was. My mom – unsupportive of my mission – left it up to me to pick my poison. I chose a caramel brown (in hindsight, this was all wrong for me). But it wasn’t long before the wrong brown turned into the wrong blonde. I realized that my color-treated hair got lighter with the sun. A few weeks went by and I was so traumatized by color that I threw in the towel and dyed my hair black. – Jet black – way to dark for me as well. (Insert face palm emoji here), until I found this…

13 Things You Have To Do When You Visit Paris

13 Things You Have To Do When You Visit Paris

Visiting Paris is a must-do for everyone, no literally – everyone. I’m lucky enough to have been three times and every experience was a little different then the last. My first time was as a student studying abroad in college and I was literally in Paris for 48 hours. I vowed to come back with my husband since Paris is, of course, the city of love. Sahir and I made that happen when we spent Christmas in Paris in December of 2016 which is so romantic – right? I thought so too, except between 2 days of flight delays and 7 days of lost luggage in freezing cold weather – it was a little less glamourous. We still had a great time but promised ourselves that we would never travel during the holidays again with a) connecting flights and b) checked luggage. Our most recent trip was a do-over and Sahir made me promise to travel carry-on only. Hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. It was however, super refreshing to just hop off the plane and head straight into the city. Now that I’m a seasoned Parisian traveler, I have made a list of the top things you have to do when you visit Paris…
