Happy Monday! I know Mondays suck, but I’m so glad to be back in LA today after a month of traveling. I’m still getting back into the swing of things (aka I’m still Jet-lag #helpme) so for today’s post I’m sharing my current obsazzion which happens to be makeup (shocker). I love buying makeup. Sometimes I find myself walking into a makeup store for one thing and then I leave with 10 things. #oops Is anyone else like that? (Don’t leave me hangin’!)
Long story longer, I’m not someone who is loyal to one brand of makeup. I know, I’m a little makeup slut as some will call it. Regardless of mixing and matching products in my makeup life, when I find something I like I usually stick to it. Stila Cosmetics is hands down my favorite brand for shopping eyeliners. I recently did a Youtube video using their smudge stick eyeliner and created an entire smokey eye pretty much using just that! (watch it here)
I was inspired to try more of their products since I loved the eyeliner so much. Check out my review of some new products I got and tested below!
– Product Details (from pic above!) -
Blush - This blush seriously made me blush (pun intended!). I LOVE LOVE this blush especially when I’m in the mood for wearing little makeup. It focuses on giving my cheeks a natural flushed look – which I adore! Shop the Shades: Camellia, Sweet Pea
Lip gloss – This lip gloss (you’ve prob seen like in this pic from my IG above) is currently my fave gloss that I own. No joke. It’s not just a regular ole’ lipgloss that fades away after two seconds of applying. This is one of the first matte lip glosses/stains I’ve found that won’t dry out my lips and make them look like a croissant basically. Shop the shade: NUDE Vinyl
Eyeliner – More like life-saver. This eye-liner seriously changed the game for me. The pigment is so rich and one I can count on. (plus the fact that it’s waterproof!) I just not discovered there is a rainbow of other shades available. Definitely need to try! Shop the shade: Stingray Jet Black
Liquid Eyeliner - If you’re a liquid eye-liner kind of gal (which I am too) Stila’s liquid eye-liner in a stick makes it really easy to create that perfect line. I will admit the pigment isn’t as rich as the smudge-stick eye-liner but it can be helpful to use to create the cat-eye shape and fill in with with another eye-liner as needed. Shop the Shade: Jet Black
The best advice I can give to those of you who are currently in the thought process of, “Omg it’s time to change my makeup,” visit your local Sephora or makeup store with a clean face and invest an hour or two of your time to sample different makeup products and brands. It’s so important to know your skin type before you go (I wrote about this before..read here) or ask a consultant when you’re there!

Hello sparkleeees! When I said you can style this denim button-up with anything – clearly I meant it. When I threw this outfit together in Kurdistan, I was inspired by the Kurdish sequin pants that the culture wears underneath our traditional Kurdish dresses (it’s a custom that’s been around for decades). They are handmade to perfection. I’ve gone through so many sparkly colored pants since I was a kid that I wish I saved them for my future daughter (after I try really hard to squeeze into them myself). It’s so crazy to see it today evolve into a modern day trend that daring fashionistas are styling into their wardrobes. Mainstream/designer brands like Moschino have also made it look chic from the runway to the realway. I’m glad this trend has come out from hiding and is inspiring women of all shapes and sizes to embrace sexy pants in a classy way. For me personally, it’s inspiring to wear them out with a purpose that’s no longer just for hiding underneath my pretty Kurdish dress.
TGIF! Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget to look fabulous, girl.

Happy Thursday! After 14+ hours traveling, I am back in the United States! It’s good to be back! I’m here in Texas for a few days before stepping on a plane again to LA – my final destination! I don’t get how some of my fellow bloggers can handle the jet-life! I love traveling to new places, but I also enjoy being in my home environment. Thankfully I have a month to re-coop before traveling again.
Today I’m sharing this oh so colorful look I wore in Kurdistan last week. As many of you saw on my Instagram teaser pic, I rocked my natural curls because I didn’t have time to style my hair. The family was rushing me because we were invited out to dinner. ha #SazanProbs
Sorry there aren’t as many pics in this post. I had my little brother snap some quick shots before I had to jump in the car and head to our dinner. I couldn’t find this jumpsuit for you guys on Forever 21’s site but I linked several similar options below. And if you’re not a floral kind of gal, I found this black jumpsuit which is a must-have.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Would love to hear your thoughts on the jumpsuit trend!

Happy Monday from Kurdistan! I’m so sad to say that today is my last day here before heading back to the states tomorrow. I’ll be sharing the remainder of my outfits I wore here throughout the week as well as a full trip recap/travel diary next week! Can’t wait to reflect back and share my experience!!
This outfit you see I wore casually over the weekend. For some reason, when I spot colors that I like, I find a way to combine them together to make an outfit pop that much more. These mirrored sunnies compliment my colored skinnies and vice versa (or at least I’d like to think so!) #colorobsazzed
It’s a bittersweet feeling leaving this place (it has been so relaxing!) and with only a month of summer left, I wish time would slow down a little! ha Nonetheless, I’m ready to get back to ‘reality’ because I have some exciting stuff coming up! To update you (I feel like I need to since I haven’t been posting regularly!) – I just found out today that I will be going to the EMMY AWARDS (ahhhh!!!) which I’m SO thrilled about! Need to find a dress ASAP. Also, Beauty Con and a quick trip to Vegas are on my August agenda so get ready to come along for the ride. I’m also in the midst of prepping for New York Fashion Week in September which can be stress-city. I have some exciting collaborations cooking up that I think you will enjoy. I love being able to take you along + share these experiences with you. It’s really cool seeing the different responses I get when I travel to different places! Stay tuned for updates my loves.
Have a great rest of your day + stylish week!
P.S Happy Eid today to those of you who celebrate! <3

Hey friends! Today I’m sharing an exotic eyes tutorial that I created for you on my Youtube channel! Since being here in Kurdistan, I have been so inspired by all of the beautiful things around me – from the nature to the yummy food and pretty women of all shapes and sizes. One thing I’ve noticed is the women out here loveeee their bold eye makeup! I’m not one to rock this look everyday but it’s definitely one that I don’t mind playing with. Some of you may hate me when I say the ‘K’ word, but I feel like the Kardashians really took this Middle Eastern inspired trend and made it globally glamorous. I decided to jump on the trend-wagon and create my version of this hot smokey eye that hopefully you’ll give a try. If any of you ladies are really in the mood to spice things up, you can also try this look with colorful eye-liner shades like green or blue. Totally exotic meets summer. I hope you enjoy the video! Would love if you could subscribe to my Youtube for more upcoming videos! Happy watching!
