Happy Persian New Year!!!

Mar 21 , 2014

Happy Persian New Year Everyone!!! Wishing all of my fellow Persians all around the world the very best this year! and to all of my non Persians, Happy first day of spring :) New Years for Persians, is essentially a celebration of the first day of spring which we equate with a fresh new start! So if 2014 has been off to a bumpy start for you… then let the beginning of spring be a second chance to get things back in order. I will be doing a full post on all of the festivities and rituals that go along with Nowruz but for now, here is a sneak peek of some of the paper goodness that was custom designed by my sweet pal Justine Ma! Wishing everyone a very happy weekend! xoxo moni

Sooooooooo, I have a confession to make guys….I am sort of obsessed with all things Bollywood. Before my family left Iran, we stayed in Pakistan for a bit and according to my mother thats when I got my first taste of Bollywood. I aint playin guys, ever since I was a child I have been watching Bollywood movies and my B-wood movie collection is pretty rad!

I always wanted to do my own spin of Bollywood Glam – not the basic bold reds or pinks but really pay homage to that timeless, classic Bollywood glam look with my own personal spin to it! So, I teamed up with some of E-towns finest to bring together my idea of what I think Bollywood glam is…and the result…well you be the judge and let me know ;) ps – you can also see more of this Bollywood goodness featured on The Wedding Chicks!

Birds & Honey Editorial: Spanish Elegance

Sep 8 , 2013

It was an absolute honour to have my Modern Spanish inspired editorial grace the latest issue of Blush Magazine! I have always been inspired by the passion and romance of the Spanish culture so for this editorial we started off with soft and bold florals, Spanish inspired lace and a custom veil designed by my bestie/designer extraordinaire Jade Rose. The soft white lace, and formfitting silhouette coupled with a custom made Spanish veil appealed to our design aesthetic and was a modern take on a Spanish wedding look for an unconventional and forward thinking bride, the crystal headpiece she adorned during the shoot added a touch of sparkle befitting a glowing bride on her wedding day. I loved juxtaposing the rougher, more textural elements with bold, playful feminine colors to give the bride the best of both worlds. Don’t forget to check out the Fall/Winter issue of Blush Magazine!!!!

Baby Honey – Ari Allen Jones

Nov 1 , 2012

I recently had the pleasure of throwing my dear friend Tegan a post baby :) baby shower. Her and I had been discussing this little party since January and she really wanted to wait until little Ari was here so friends and family could mingle with her little bundle of sweetness. Tegan loves all things teal & red & vintage so we kept it simple and sweet. I hope all of you enjoy this swoon worthy little baby shower.
