Hi loves!

Where has August gone?!? This month has seriously gone by so quickly, I don’t even know how its already August 29! I had so many posts planned for the month and just never got to editing them (and im so beyond sorry). There will be new back to school posts up throughout the month of September! If there is anything you’d like to see, please tell me! Today’s post is going to be about my semester goals, both personal and for the blog. I’d love to hear about your goals for the upcoming semester!


  • Read at least 1 book per month
  • Work out at least 2-3 times per week
  • Eat healthier
  • Save $50 each month for post-grad


  • Post 3 times a week
  • Get to 10000 monthly views
  • Pre-Write posts the week ahead
  • Redesign my site

School / Work

  • Get at least a 3.5 GPA
  • Research grad school / GRE / GMAT
  • Have an incredible time at my internship
  • Find a spring and summer internship / job
  • Look into careers with the U.S. State Department
  • Procrastinate Less

So here are my fall semester goals! I’d love to hear about your goals for the semester!

Love, Saba


Weekly Motivation #4

Hi loves!

This week is going to be absolutely crazy! I finished my internship up with Melrose PR yesterday and am currently working on packing up my clothes and other random tidbits! It’s so crazy that I move back into my house in Orange on THURSDAY… Classes start on Monday and I’m seriously so confused how summer has gone by so fast.  Here’s a little weekly motivation for anyone going through sorority recruitment, first week of classes / a new job, orientation week, and everything in between!


1 / 2 / 3

What are your plans for the week?



Life Update ~ Summer Recap

Hi loves!

This summer has been such a roller coast ride, between the weddings, traveling, funerals, and an internship. I’ve definitely felt pretty uninspired the past couple weeks but now with junior year right around the corner (eek how is that happening!), I’m finally back in the writing / blogging mode and while it’s going to take me a couple weeks to get on an actual schedule I’m so excited to finally be back! Here’s a little recap of the past month of my summer vacation, hope you enjoy!

My trip to D.C. last month was probably one of the most eye opening & incredible experiences! Sponsored by the Iranian American Women’s Foundation, we were able to visit some D.C. sites that wouldn’t normally be seen if it wasn’t for this trip. My favorite part was by far visiting the State Department! Being a political science minor & slightly huge HRC supporter (#ImWithHer) it was a HUGE deal to not only be in the State Department but also I learned that D.C. is my #1 place to move post-grad (GW grad school… fingers crossed!).


Back in California, my older cousin Neda got married to her incredible boyfriend of 10 years, Matt. It’s safe to say their wedding was single handedly the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever been to! My internship at Melrose PR is finally coming to an end and while I am truly so thankful for the experience to intern at such an incredible company! I’ve already accepted an internship for next semester and I’m so excited to begin!


I’m planning on starting my Back to School series next week so if there is anything you want to see, let me know!
