Wedding Planning is Stressful

These are the days leading up to my best friend’s wedding and I must say she is very stressed, therefore I’m stressed (lol). But the one thing she hasn’t stressed over at all is the man she is marrying, and that’s the most important thing. All the little things don’t matter in the long run — but don’t let anyone fool you, wedding planning is stressful! I should know, I planned two of them.

In other news, I’ve been off my game with it come to scheduling my life. Somehow it’s now mid-August and I don’t know where the time is going! Waiting to celebrate my 4-year Egypt wedding anniversary with the hubby this weekend and then party at my best friend’s wedding.

For a while now I’ve been lost as to what “label” I am. An architect, a blogger, or does designer cover it all? I’m not a stranger to it, being born in the US but with Ecuadorian and Egyptian blood, who I am has always been a question. Slowly, but surely, I’m starting to actually apply what I tell myself. I’m a mixture of different pieces — a woman, Muslim, architect, writer, fashion-lover, traveller, daughter, sister, wife, architect, Egyptian-Ecuadorian-American. I am me.

A big part of it all was people telling me to find a “niche” in my blog and social media. Find one pieces out of all the parts of me and focus on it. But I couldn’t. I can’t. My friend asked me a good question, “do you want to be a model or a human?” and the answer is… human. I want to be me. Whether that gets me readers or followers isn’t the point to it all. I love being able to be myself and freely explore and share the different parts that make me whole.

It’s definitely a process, but to those of you who follow along with me, I appreciate the love. And those who aren’t interested, it’s completely okay.

A Day In Casablanca, Morocco

The largest city in Morocco, Casablanca, with parisian Art Deco, the beach, and authentic moroccan vibes, yet without all the tourism. a delightful place to wander around and soak up the elegance and bustling atmosphere, allowing you to enjoy the city as its unbridled authentic self through its beautiful history and mystique. If you’re in Casablanca for the day, here’s a little firsthand experience of what I did with my time.

Why did we go back to Egypt (4 months later)? Because it’s home. It’s where I met this guy 10 years ago. Where I met some of my best friends. It’s where my siblings and I got closer. Where my parents really got to enjoy time together. — To be honest, when we first moved to Egypt, all those years ago, I was a bratty teenager, constantly complaining that my parents were ruining my life (yes, I was that cliche). Only to end up falling in love with the country as my own home. Home is where the memories are and laughter is always shared.
