Lifestyle Relationships

I have some exciting news to share with you today. When Stevie and I moved to Los Angeles over 4 years ago to chase two separate careers, we never  imagined our dreams would collide and become one. To paint the picture for you: before we got married, I was a hot mess living at my sister’s apartment, and Stevie was a hungry actor living paycheck to paycheck just trying to stay alive in this crazy city. When we joined forces and decided to work on my blog full-time, we were excited about this new venture and the spark it brought out in both of us.
After we got married and saved up enough money, we finally left our two-bedroom apartment and decided to rent a beautiful home in Miracle Mile/Carthay Square. I was so excited when we moved into this house; we even shared the moving in and decorating process with all of you. We’ve had so many special memories in this house (the birth of Bless Box, Sweetie’s home coming, hosting Bible studies..).
Stevie and I are in a new season of life and we recently had “the talk.” We talked about the next 5 years and course where we truly want to “start a life” together. Renting a home in Los Angeles is one thing but BUYING is a whole different story. I was nervous because I thought, “If we buy a home does that mean we’re settling here forever?” I love Los Angeles, but I can’t picture us living in the heart (and traffic!) of it. I thought, “Well what if we move back to Texas and buy a house there?” That didn’t feel right either. All we could do was pray and ask God to lead the way. I asked God to show us signs if LA was really the place we should start looking to buy.
Just 5 months ago we decided to start looking with our realtor friend, Jane. Just looking! 😉 Jane is literally like a second mom to us (our LA mom!), so we felt so blessed to have her as a guide throughout this crazy process. Buying your first home can be really intimidating, especially in the California market. To be honest, I didn’t think we would end up finding a house because my expectations were too high! This was going to be our starter home. Stevie and I wanted it to feel cozy (like Texas!), comfortable, and a safe place/community to raise a family. We have a unique situation because we also work from home, so we need extra office space, a ginormous closet, and some extra room for guests and family members. After looking at countless houses (the good, the bad and the OH EM GEE UGLY!)… we found it. WE FOUND OUR HOUSE!

We are finally moving in next month and I couldn’t be more excited! We’re moving about 45 minutes away from where we live now – (BYE BYE CRAZY TRAFFIC and billboard signs everywhere) and into the cozy family community of Montrose (just 5 minutes from our house!!) in Glendale.
The story behind why this house felt so right is crazy. Remember when I said I was asking God to show me signs? Well wait until you hear the entire story. It’s too long to type so I’m going to Vlog it on my channel very soon! Key word: #REST
Sooo. There’s also a significant part 2 to this story coming soon and the house plays a huge part. Any guesses? Before I go, I just want to say thank you for always being so incredibly supportive and being the best online community a girl could ask for! Hashtag #BLESSED.
Love you.. Stay tuned!

  14. Hey there! Congratulations! Reading this story made me feel so emotional, I live in Mexico and my boyfriend lives in L.A., we’ve been “dating” almost a year and a half so it’s kind of difficult to see each other every time in a while, that makes me be so desperate sometimes because we even have talked about moving together but it’s very hard at the moment. I’m 25 and he’s 27, I’m a lawyer and he’s a writer and we both are trying to be successful at our carreers in our own countries, so we don’t know what the future would be for us. Sooo… all I can say about your story is that it made me believe that everything is possible with love and patience and to learn to wait for the right time for the right things. Thank you so much Sazan, for sharing this important big step in your life and I hope you the very best!

  15. God works in magical ways and he is opening a great journey for you both! God bless this new home and may you have a beautiful start to a great home memories! Can’t wait to read part two!!! @falloverfashion

  16. I kinda sorta really feel like part 2 is that you and Stevie are expecting a baby! Bigger house for a bigger family?! Whatever part 2 is, you must be thrilled to have found a house!! Congrats Sazan and Stevie!!

  17. Omg i hope you’re pregnant Saz, or Sweetie? ???????? However, I would be so happy for you guys. You would be awesome parents! ????
    Wish you all the best

  18. Congrats on your home purchase!God is good…so let me tell you what came when we bought our home. My mom had told me, “New house, new baby!” At the time I was like No way, our twins were already 10 years old and I couldn’t see ourselves starting over. So we moved into our home September of 2004, missed my December 2005 period, and by January 2005 I found out we were pregnant. So yea, moral of the story…new house…new baby????

  22. Sazan!!! I’m so happy for you!!! Praying that God continues blessing you????????

  23. Congrats to you both! Montrose/Glendale is where I grew up and still love. You’re going to love it here. God bless you both. Xoxoxo

  25. Congratulations Sazan ! You connect people from all over the world !
    I’m so happy for you!

  26. Hiiii Sazan,

    First of all i want to tell you how much of a inspiration you are to me. You broke down the cultural barriers and married the guy you love. I am in the same kind of situation. Except im a bit younger and i dont want to marry at a young age. That doesnt take away that i love my dutchie lover <3 i love him more than ive loved any other guy and i dont think ill ever stop loving him. Whenever i look at him im like 'damn he is really mine and im so lucky for that'. Every situation is different, i know but do you have any tips for me. I really want to let my parents know. I love them and i love him and as days go by Matthijs (thats his name) becomes a bigger part of my life. A part i have to hide from my parents. My mom is very religious but my dad is more of a 'culture is very important' kinda man. He doesnt want me to do certain things just because my family will talk about me back in Kurdistan.
    I love this guy and i am sure that i will last with him. I also want to risk it and tell my parents about it. Im just scared and yeah im not really ready for that yet.

    Also, how were Stevie's parents thinking about your whole situation? Did they support it? I know that Matthijs' parents dont like it, which i totally get. but how were Stevie's parents in this?

    I admire you Sazan and i look up to you!

    Also youre gorgeous!

    I hope youll reply to this mail!!


  27. So excited for u & Stevie!!???? And can’t wait to hear that part 2 of the story & how God brought it all together! I am so inspired by u & all u stand for and especially encouraged as u are like my purpose twin! Ever since I found u on YT & Insta just a few weeks ago I have been glued to u & motivated again to launch my YT channel because now that I know u’re out there, then I don’t feel alone in what I want to accomplish with my beauty channel. Which is to inspire & help women focus on the beauty within them as much as their outward beauty, as we are all fearfully & wonderfully made 🙂 U know that Psalm don’t u????? Much love to u from NC!! Hope to cross paths one day.❤????????

  28. So exciting! I’m from La Crescenta and now I live in the mid-city area renting a beautiful home with my husband but I want to move back so bad! Montrose is such a beautiful family area! Can’t wait to see what your home looks like!

  29. Hey Sazan!
    I recently started following you and became a blessbox subscriber! I think you have such a great personality and bring an honest and unique approach to the world of beauty. I saw your instagram story a few weeks ago at the montrose farmers market and was like what is this girl doing in my neck of the woods but I was super excited to hear about the news! Congratulations to you and Stevie! I live right up the street so let me know once you guys are all settled in, I’d love to give you guys and Sweetie a tour 🙂

  30. SAZAN! In relations to part 2 of your post- I’m not a 110% religious follower bc I’m in school but I do my best and I feel like we’re besties sometimes ???? You live such a beautiful life through faith and just life in general. You come off as such a warm, happy, welcoming person!???? I’m so excited for you, your hubby, and Sweetie to enjoy this humongous next chapter of your life– a home AND a baby!
