Happy Wednesday, friends! We’re halfway through the week and I’m ready for the weekend. I’m too excited to start shopping for my new place this weekend. — Y’all, if you have the chance — go strawberry picking. It was too much fun 🍓 Entire outfit is linked through the LTK app http://liketk.it/2CFHM #liketkit @liketoknow.it
🦋I’ve never been a dress kinda girl! Probably because I was a Tom boy growing up! Jumpsuits & rompers forever. What I love about this outfit is that it looks like a dress but it’s really a romper 🙃 jokes on you! 😂 it’s also SUPER comfy & comes in a red floral print. Need to get the red one ASAP. ⚡️Added bonus.... this outfit is on clearance right now! DM me for the link or head to my bio to shop it on the FREE LTKIT app! http://liketk.it/2CFoB #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKsalealert
If you’re wondering how many floral dresses I have.. the answer is not enough 😍🌼 At least that’s what I keep telling myself every time I buy one that’s just slightly different from 5 I already have. Oh well, happy Tuesday! Make sure you head over to the blog to read my lastest blog post from yesterday! — Shop your screenshot http://liketk.it/2CDAy #liketkit @liketoknow.it

I’ve absolutely fallen in love with the @moroccanmagic lip balms and am super excited to be partnering with them as a #moroccanmagic ambassador⚡️
• • •
The balms contain moisture locking ingredients like argan oil and coconut oil and the lavender essential oil in my favorite flavor, Lavender Vanilla, is perfect at reminding me to relax on my more stressful days.
Also, Moroccan Magic is female owned, cruelty free and USDA certified organic! We love that!

Hello insta friends! Everything good?
💃🏼 So when I was in Sevilha I found out @planet_skin that only sells korean skincare 😍 I was in shock! Of course Mr. Father started complaining immediatly but I still got:
💃🏼 @apieu_cosmetics madecassoside spf
💃🏼 @dr.altheaglobal brightening sheetmask
💃🏼 @skin79_spain Rice Bubble Cleasing Mask
💃🏼 and the only @paparecipe_official mask i was missing 💖
The seller was super nice and offered me the @skin79_spain intensive moisturizer mask.
And i noticed the prices weren’t that different from those from online store!
🐶 Other souvenirs: I couldn’t resist to this pug doll 💖 nor to those “infinite” earrings.
🐶 My dad got me the flamingo stainless steel bracelet, the bronze fish ring by a portuguese designer and the hat (also got me a matching sweater).
🐶 He also surprised with.... a car!!!! Yes you red well! He actually got me a second hand car and made me cry for hours!
🐶 But the best thing was being able to be with him, seeing he’s doing alright and that his friends are worth it. Spending 10 days recovering, being pampered, getting to know new places, seeing my dad’s smile for having me there with him. That was the best 💖

Happy Hump Day everyone ❤️⠀
I know I’ve been a little MIA on social media, but that’s what happens when real life gets in the way... 😉 A little Life Update is that @andrew_badalian and I have been non-stop house hunting which has taken up a lot of our time, so most of our focus has been on that as well as spending lots of quality time together before he leaves on his guy trip to Europe for a couple weeks! ✈️

So I have a ~confession~ to make: I hate the ending of Sweeney Todd. I don’t think that’s an unpopular opinion, but I wanna talk about it. I don’t think it was necessary for Sweeney to throw Mrs. Lovett into the oven. I don’t!! Do I understand why he did it? Yes. BUT HEAR ME OUT!!!!!!! He was wrong. He felt that Nellie (Mrs. Lovett) should have told him that Lucy was alive and you know what? Maybe she should have, but Lucy wasn’t his Lucy anymore than he was still Benjamin Barker. She was homeless, mentally ill prostitute who couldn’t even remember her own daughter, so just WHAT does he think would have happened if he knew who she was before he killed her. WHICH THAT!!! HE KILLED HER!! NO ONE TOLD HIM TO DO THAT STUPID SHIT. And you could argue that if he’d known it was Lucy, he wouldn’t have become the demon barber in the first place, but that’s bullshit. He had too much hate in his soul to let it fester like that just because his wife was alive. He always wanted revenge. I’m not saying Nellie’s completely blameless in this, I’m just saying that maybe if Sweeney was such an emo little bitch and could take responsibility for his actions, she wouldn’t have had to go in the oven. Anyway,,,,,, Sweeney Todd is my favorite musical hahaha!!! What’s yours?

Nazar / Evil Eye.
.So a few days ago I wrote about evil eye and how it affects our interactions with others. From all the DMs I've gotten, as well as the comments, it shows that you all also believe that it makes us afraid to praise our children in front of others, or talk about our successes, our highs or highlight anything positive really, for fear of being jinxed by the other person.
Based on your responses, the following seem to be the consensus: ♥ Nazar (evil eye) is because of Hassad /jealousy
♥ Nazar is usually from someone close to you (i.e, not strangers)
♥ Nazar is closely linked to jadoo (magic). Or rather let's just say those that walk the path of magic are fuelled by nazar. .That makes me so sad. Because as a society, we automatically assume that others are not acting in our best interests. We automatically assume that the other person will not be happy to hear of your success and will wish you ill. It's true that only Allah knows what is in our hearts, but to be constantly suspicious that the other people in your lives are jealous or may covet what you, your spouse or your children have to the point of harming you, is really and truly sad. .
. I believe our beautiful religion is one of peace and brotherhood. Although it acknowledges Evil eye, it certainly doesn't advocate it. .
As a society we CAN choose to change our mentality. Lighten up, be happy for yourself and others. Be grateful for what you have and surely you will be blessed with more. #SayMashaAllah for your brother/sister in Islam the next time you see them happy about anything. And most importantly, as the rickshaw walas and truck drivers in our country remind us: DON'T JEALOUS. .
.Can you tell me how else we, as a society, can eradicate this problem of nazar?
I only have two looks:
Trophy wife or like I live under a bridge and demand riddles for people to cross it 😬
But no seriously... Some good skin prep, makeup, and lighting makes all the difference! I don't have a ring light, so I prop my phone on a window sill and put my phone on a timer!
Makes a huge difference!! 📸
