Celebrated my birthday last month by having brunch followed by cupcakes in the park with some of my best people. We refuse to grow up and I hope it stays that way.

On Monday I received a call from my mother telling me about Uncle Shahid’s passing. Words cannot describe how heartbroken I am. It reminded me of when my brother too very suddenly passed away 4 years ago. Uncle Shahid and his family took care of us through it all. They’ve been with us through thick and thin. He was a devoted husband, loving father and in general a class act. He always valued your opinion and gave everyone a chance to be heard. He put others needs before his own and was always willing to go the extra mile and beyond for his friends and family - he made you his family. I’ll always remember his sense of humor and humility. As difficult as this time is, I keep reminding myself to celebrate who he was and try my best to keep his memory alive and be there for his family.

I’m finally getting around to posting all this NYFW coverage that I never got to edit (school was crazy!). During the semester my friend Mahnoor sent me this song called ‘Main Kya Karoon’ from the Bollywood film Barfi, needless to say I instantly fell in love and was reminded of this collection.
There is something so wonderful and charming about Misha Nonoo and her collections. When I walked into this presentation I instantly knew it had something to do with Cuba or maybe it was the music that gave away… still… I was sold. I’ve always wanted to visit Cuba ever since I was a little girl and this collection took me there - frankly speaking I was not looking forward to leaving. The simplicity and elegance of her designs always get the point across and you cannot help but be mesmerized by the story she’s telling through her work.
I cannot wait to see what she has in store for next season
P.S anyone want to take me to Cuba? I could use a vacation.

There’s always so much pressure when writing a new years post. I have nothing profound to say, I mean I’ve never had a way with words so you can only imagine my level of distress at this point - but I really really want to make an effort. Here goes…
I’ve been horrible with updating the blog I know. Truth is I had a pretty shitty semester in school, if you want to punish someone then make them do a group project in urban design for an entire semester.
I learned so much about myself in school - worked hard till my bones hurt and while the result in the end wasn’t what I wanted, I’m still happy I survived it all in one piece.
My words of advice would be to just chill out… seriously. Yes life is hard but it’s okay to check out for a day or the weekend from time to time and just stay in bed and do nothing. Your body and mind need that to recuperate and just (hopefully) stay sane. Find the balance to do what you must and what you love. Work hard and be patient because it really does pay off in the end. I promise you. Be a good person, be kind but don’t be a pushover. Learn to say ‘no’ because you can. Be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to the details. I know people my age don’t particularly like kids but it’s good to interact with them once a while - keeps you in check - it helps you see the world differently and reminds you not to take yourself too seriously all the time. Tell your family you love them or spend time with them. Just shut up and do it. Life is too short and unpredictable.
So many amazing things happened outside of college life though. Fashion week in September was awesome, I got to photograph some really cool shows/presentations (which I will post soon I promise) - the biggest one being Oscar de la Renta of course. Teen Vogue happened. Met some pretty incredible people.
I cannot wait to see what this next year brings. Can’t wait to meet new people and work on new projects. Some big plans are in the works. Wish me luck!
Hey 2013… bring it!
