Food Love

Left to Right: Aushak- Leek and Spring onion filled dumplings topped with yogurt and meat sauce.
Pakawra-E-Padenjan - Batter dipped eggplant topped with yogurt and meat sauce.
Sambosa-E-Goushti - Fried pastries filled with ground lamb and chickpeas

Shrimp Kabab
Kabab-E-Gousfand (Lamb)

So my first love is definitely second love is MOST definitely food! I looooooveee food...I'm not a picky eater and am game to try just about anything. One of the most awesome aspects of living in California is the variety of restaurants available with a few minutes of driving.

One of my besties is Afghan and her family owns and runs a couple of restaurants located here in the Bay Area called Kabul Afghan Cuisine. Let me tell you if you haven't tried Afghan food get to it I PROMISE you, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE it. So fresh and tasty...I beg her to go just so I can get my hands on fried eggplant and shrimp kababs MMMmmm. So delicious I recommend it to EVERYONE!

I know I know not my usual outfit post or fashion thoughts...but when I find something I LOVE I feel everyone should know about it...this will happen frequently on my blog cause I love a lot of things...i'm a lush I know  :-D

Has anyone else tried Afghan Cuisine? Is there another kind of food I should familiarize myself with?

Thank you for your comments and love on my last couple of post...I appreciate them all!!

Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend...I know I definitely enjoyed my time to the grind!!

Polka dots always put a smile on my face...I like them in all sizes and never get tired of them. It's the one pattern I feel never goes out of style. I love the length of this skirt not to short or long and perfect for running around or even wearing to work.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow...I love Thanksgiving...Mostly because of the food but also because of the friend and family bonding time. There is nothing like sitting around stuffing face and giving thanks to the people who inspire and enrich your life...blissful.

I have a lot to be thankful for this year...My family...the best family anyone could ask for....the bestest mom...the bestest fathers (yes I have two...I am that lucky) ok kid I love friends...the most wonderful friends, everyone deserves such loyal and honest people in their life....My babe....awww my babe is the thankful for him because he believes in and supports me everyday no matter what...puts a smile on my face and keeps reality at my forefront without blinking...swooonnn <3

Hola Everyone!

Well California has finally seized to the climate and has been raining cats and dogs alllll weekend...BOO! I guess I don't mind a day or two of it, but seriously I cannot stand driving in the rain or carrying an umbrella that breaks every other time you attempt to open it....just sucks. So I am currently hoping my 80 degree days return with a swiftness so I can go back to being blissfully happy!

I was in the mood for layering this last Friday....wanted socks with heels and a blazer with a flowy blouse...I accomplished it and loved it :)
I scored this blazer last year at a thrift store for a couple dollars, stuck it in my coat closet and completely forgot about it...silly me...found it a couple weeks ago and haven't taken it off since, its soft and warm which is all I ask for.

Thank you for the sweet comments on the last few post...I definitely appreciate them all!

T.G.I.T <~~ Thanks God Its Thursday
Cause that means tomorrow is Friday and I score an entire 10 days off work! Yes!!! Cant wait for some scrumptious turkey and unnecessary amounts of casseroles. Definitely another favorite holiday of mine.

Thanksgiving....a day to count your blessings....reflect on everything and everyone in your life...nap in the middle of the day...and continue to eat leftovers for a week after. Amazing...

I love this dress, its bright and happy. I need bright and happy sometimes.

Over It...

Top coat: F21 Twist, White top: TJ Maxx, Blue Top: F21
Leggings: Santa Cruz, Shoes: Harajuku 

Hello Everyone!

Friday was one of the days that I was just completely over it...hence my shirt...I pull it out when i'm feeling this way and it makes me feel better.

I just have to add that people are completely unpredictable, no one changes unless they really want to. When a person says there not sure about something, theres not much you can do to change that except wait and hope that the person who is so unsure comes to there senses and does what you say.

For whatever reason im keeping my fingers crossed...

Thank you for the awesome feedback on the last post...I'm glad everyone enjoyed it...Thank you for your support as always!!

You Need These...

I'm forever on a conquest to solve the "pain is beauty" mystery...
I cannot understand why most of the time when your dressed up and looking great you step into those 5-6 inch stilettos and BAM instant shooting pain up your leg....and then what do we do?! We stroll out of the house in them and continue to withstand this pain in the ball of our foot for the next 4 or 5 hours...dancing around with numb toes and wincing at the thought of walking to the next spot ....always happens... every time...every weekend...
Even my most comfortable heels....and I have a lot of me at the most inconvenient time, when all I am trying to do is have some fun!

So I found a solution...and though you may have heard of them ( there are now multiple brands making them) I cannot stress enough at how AWESOME they are and every female should have a pair in their bag.
Honestly why didn't I think to purchase them before...


I was out wandering the streets in San Francisco this weekend and got to try my new friends out...we walked to the bar...folding shoes on, heels in to the bar, high heels the time I couldn't stand my heels we were ready to the rescue came my folding shoes...instant relief and PURE genius!

My babies were 20 bucks...and I could walk straight the next day....

I'm not one to boast about products...but this is more an F.Y.I...these work...Point made :)

Heres what mine look like...I got them from redfoot in the UK...but I've seen Dr. Scholls makes them and a couple other brands...

I got mine in cream...they were cheaper for whatever reason :)
They came with a bag to keep them together...perfecto!

Hello Everyone!
As promised I found a different background....the San Francisco dwellings of my bestie. It was one of those weekends where I felt the need to drive somewhere and just simply hang out, so thats what I did and in the mist of talking, laughing and vodka came about a impromptu photo shoot...I preferably love the top photo...I mean who messes with grills and raunchy cigarette butts in 5 inch heels?! Um apparently I times!

Top: H&M, Shorts: BDG
Tights: Target, Shoes:BCBG

Santa Cruz
Hello Everyone,
As most of you know I am a San Francisco Giants fan...and as most of you know they won the WORLD SERIES which I cannot be more proud of. Yesterday was the victory parade on Market street in downtown San Francisco, they estimated 1.5 million people showed up to give there support. Amazing absolutely amazing, I love it when something big happens that brings everyone together peacefully, it should happen more often (preferably with something more useful to society) but this has the Bay Area buzzing and happy, which is definitely a great feeling. Now that the seasons over its on to hockey...and more football.

On to the outfit....
Wore this to go watch one of the world series game, notice the hints of orange and black. I am a sports fan second, first an foremost I am a fashion student/lover ( I have to remind my boyfriend of this every time he smirks at my non sports gear attire)...No matter how much I enjoy the team, I cannot or even try to make sports gear fashionable....seriously I just cant.

Sorry for the in front of doors shots again... I'm sure you are a little bored of them...I am working to expand backgrounds I promise...I included a picture from a 90 degree day at the beach a couple weeks ago to mix the view up...Until next time friends! xx

A Party isn't a Party without Friends and Love

Indian and My Sexy Cowboy
Bed Jumping Fools
Indian, Sailor, Cancan and Pretty
Dressing up for Halloween has got to be one of my favorite things to do all year, I wish at least once a month we could do something so fun. Partied in San Francisco with my besties and hunbun....couldn't have asked for a better time with any better people. I realize as I get older its not about the amount of friends you have but truly about the quality....I have hundreds of aquaintences and people I would say Hello to on the street if I saw'll them, but I only have about 5 friends that I could call any time of the day for anything. I am truly blessed to have some super amazing, smart and talented people in my life. I guess i'm feeling a little insightful this morning I apologize...but remember to count your blessings every day.

Two Things:

1.Go out and VOTE people....seriously DO IT! Exercise your right to do so...PLEASE!!!


Oh yea one more thing....notice anything about the picture quality?! myself a lil something about it later! Have a great day!!
