The z.bella spring lookbook is here!!! Check out some images that I styled from our shoot! I recently had the opportunity to style a spring lookbook for z.bella boutique. I totally loved every minute of the process from selecting outfits with my girl Zoe who owns z.bella, to designing our set props, to working with some beautiful models, a lovely party decor shop owner and a VERY talented hair/makeup artist and photographer! Being on a set always feel like home to me and…

I Want You to See Me In My Underwear

March 21, 2017
Reclaim_Beauty_Katrina_inspo_and_co_self_love

I believe that women and men need to see more representations of what real bodies look like in ALL shapes and sizes in every form of media. There is no “right” or “wrong” body type – yet a consumerist culture clamors to make us feel like shit if we don’t look like what is perceived to be best. Even being “plus-sized” comes with measurement restrictions, height requirements and facial bone structure from Jesus himself if you want to be considered an acceptable plus…

            My anxiety has been at an all-time high recently as I literally CANNOT wait any longer for spring weather to be here. My boyfriend and I are also in the process of trying to sublet our apartment and move to a more cost-effective option. We have some big plans for the rest of the year and are working hard to budget better and fund our dreams! In anticipation of moving soon – I have totally…

Dollar Store Decor DIY Photo Backdrop

I love making DIY projects ESPECIALLY when they are affordable to make. I am a serial “try-er” dabbling in this and that when it comes to crafting. It’s just so fun to be creative and learn how to make something pretty and new. It’s this little project love that has inspired me to do a series of DIY blog posts using supplies that can be easily found at the Dollar Store or very cost effectively. No fancy tools, hundred dollar llama…

A DAY WITHOUT WOMEN

March 8, 2017
a_day_without_women_inspo_and_co

You are worthy of equal treatment. You are worthy of equal pay. You are worthy of equal job opportunities. Your body is yours. You are never asking to be raped or molested because of what you are wearing. Who you have sex with doesn’t define who you are. It’s your choice if you want to be a wife or a mother – not your responsibility. Your body is the best when you feel the best -not when it fits into a…

A Beautiful Mess Recipe Review

February 28, 2017
pastry_galette_cooking_inspo_and_co

It’s probably no surprise that I am a huge fan of blogs. I love reading them, finding new ones to follow, saving inspiring blog images and obviously writing for my own! Sometimes I do feel like there is an element of “Pinterest fail” that can also happen with blog content. The blogger makes it look so easy to contour their face with baby powder or make a souffle out of pudding mix and a prayer to baby Jesus. I consider myself capable when…

Glossier Haul and Review

February 13, 2017
glossier_haul_inspo_and_co

I’m a sucker for pretty packaging when it comes to almost any product. If it’s minimalist, has flowers on it or reminds me of a gemstone – the odds of me buying it are almost 100%. I’ve unfortunately learned that really crappy products can also come in beautiful packaging. In an effort to get rid of clutter, I am trying to buy beauty products that are aesthetically pleasing and actually work too. Enter….Glossier! Pronounced “Gloss-ee-aye” – this brand made a huge…

Body Positive, Half-Iranian, Feminist

February 7, 2017
world_hijab_day_katrina

We are in a political period where many of my friends and family members are nervous about what is going to happen to America during the next few years. I proudly identify as a feminist and have had the pleasure of marching with thousands of other women who believe that the current inequality of women’s rights is still an issue that needs to be solved. This is one of the reasons that inspo + co. is so important to me because I love having…

2017 has already been full of craziness for me, but I can’t complain because I am getting to do really fun projects with steller people! I took a bit of an extended holiday break to totally ease myself into the new year, but now I am bursting at the seams to get back to regular blog posting. I’ve been working hard on a very special project and I am glad to finally be able to announce that I have been invited to join…

5 Non-Resolutions That Will Change Your Life

December 19, 2016
cut yourself some slack

Its that time of year again when I asses my life and go “wtf happened here?” If you are anything like me, January can historically be a hard time as a slew of poor holiday eating choices, loads of money spent on gifts and crappy cold weather have finally taken a toll. I usually feel like there is so much pressure to make a clean start of it and get my act back in gear that I exist in a…
