Bump Up Your Makeup in 5 Minutes!

The last few weeks I’ve been part of Target’s style campaign to create super fun content. (Oh, hi dream come true). My latest video was all about makeup and ways you can bump up your look if you have just 5 more minutes. I used all goodies from Target to create a sexy, SUPER easy, inexpensive look.

New SHOW Announcement!

As some of you may know I’ve always been obsessed with trying beauty treatments that are new, weird, crazy, scary, painful, awkward, foreign.. I can go on. After years of experimenting (Birdsh*t facial from Japan, Hammam Hopping in Istanbul, Fish Pedicures in Thailand) I finally have a partner in crime who is up for the same adventures as I am. Allow me to introduce you to my girl Susan Yara. It is with extreme happiness that I announce a brand new show that I’m co-hosting with her. She shares my love for bizarre beauty and together there isn’t anything we won’t try! Check out the trailer for our new series below which will be released on Mixed Makeup in Febuary. We’re also looking for a name… Have any ideas?? Leave them below the video! If we choose your name you will receive a SICK box of beauty goodies.  CAN’T WAIT!!!! Sharzad Kiadeh Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 4.23.22 PM Sharzad Kiadeh

Family Vacay at The Broadmoor

My family and I were fortunate enough to ring in 2015 at one of our favorite resorts in America, The Broadmoor located in beautiful Colorado Springs. It’s a historic, luxurious hotel with an endless amount of things to do, places to eat, drink and and a fabulous spa to get your pamper on.  Even though I’ve been there 3 times in the last two years I find new activities with each visit and there is still so much more to see. The Broadmoor is constantly evolving, updating and expanding. Below are some highlights from our trip that included seeing the property covered in fresh white snow, the stunning spa, and a few glimpses of the food. Did I mention there are seven killer restaurants on the property! Michael and I were also invited to a lux private party held at the beautiful Penrose room to ring in the new year. We had a seven course meal with wine pairings, so yeah, we were pretty excited about that.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. The Broadmoor truly is one of my favorite places to visit. The service is spectacular, the property is breathtaking and there is no shortage of things to do for couples, friends, or families. Every season offers up a new kind of beauty and activities. Want to see more!?! Watch our family vlog!

Have a great week everyone!

P.S. For those asking on Instagram the lip color I was rocking was Butter Lip Balm from NYX in Red Velvet with Cherry liner from MAC.



Happy New Year!

Oh hi bloggy that I have neglected SO MUCH this past month. Oopsies. I’ve been super busy filming a bunch of exciting new content for my channel and The Mom’s View. I also have a new series I’m co-hosting on Mixed Makeup in February, so GET EXCITED for that! More details coming soon. In the meantime you can watch the latest Mom’s View where the ladies and I sit down with Soleil Moon Frye to hear about her adorable crafts that are perfect for entertaining your little ones. Hope you enjoy the episode!

Grandma Hopping

Happy Monday! Hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving. I just realized it’s been a almost two weeks since my last update on here. Yikes. #BadSharzad I’m still trying to figure out that balance between motherhood, working on all my projects, being sane and more importantly showering! We have been BUSY the last two weeks visiting family in Chicago and the Bay Area. We’re back in LA and ready for to tackle this month. (Oh hi December) Baby Idris was grandma hopping all over the country and below are some snaps from our adventures in chilly Chicago (it was 18 when we landed!) to the Bay. LuxLyfe

Thankswapping

What is Thankswapping you ask? It’s when you share sweaters with your friends during Thanksgiving. haha  I had the pleasure of partnering with Target on a fun style series and in the first episode Angel and I get in the holiday spirit by swapping sweaters. You should probably just watch my video to see for yourself.

P.S. There will be more Target Style videos over the next few months so please be sure to check ‘em out!



Cook Dinner With Us

Helllllooo Monday! Michael and I recently became obsessed with Blue Apron. What’s Blue Apron you ask? It’s a meal planning and grocery delivery service. Sounds like it would be really expensive right? WRONG. It’s $10 a meal per person.  Shall I repeat that? Every week you receive a package with the ingredients for three different meals. The recipes are extremely creative with a focus on seasonal items, like Thai Pumpkin Curry. (I made that last week and it was SO F*CKING good!) Each meal takes about 40 minutes to prepare and has anywhere from 500-700 calories. I think my favorite thing about Blue Apron is I don’t have to think about what’s for dinner or go to the grocery store. This service is definitely for the person who wants to cook, but doesn’t want to plan or shop. That pretty much sums me up! In the video below we prepare a fabulous Salmon dinner…. and devour a bottle of wine. Enjoy!

Living the Dream

Yesterday was like a dream. I spent the day with an awesome crew and my son at a private house on one of my favorite beaches in Malibu. Hi perfect. Here are some behind the scenes pics for our Mom’s View holiday video. I CAN’T WAIT until it’s live. Just a quick reminder to go after your dreams NOW (like today!) because your future self will thank you ; )   Sharzad Kiadeh Sharzad Kiadeh Sharzad Kiadeh Sharzad Kiadeh Sharzad Kiadeh Sharzad Kiadeh

Special thanks to my girl Alana for snapping some more pics of me and Idris. Coincidentally this is the same beach that we shot my maternity photos.

Have a great day!



Crossroads Kitchen

I’ve been hearing about Crossroads Kitchen for some time now and I finally made the trek over. It’s a completely plant based (aka vegan) menu with a focus on Mediterranean cuisine. We went for dinner and I was pleasantly surprised to see the decor is very sexy, dark and perfect for date night. I think people have a misconception about vegan food being hippy-ish or bland… not at all the case here! Let’s talk about the food shall we? I tried the artichoke oysters, the kite hill cheese plate, pappardelle bolognese, oven roasted kabocha squash and some other favorites. Umm, hi delish. I loved everything. I wanted to eat so much more, but the babe was getting squirmy so I have to save it for next time. Chef Tal Ronnen is the creative force behind this unique dining experience. He’s one of the most celebrated vegan chefs and it’s obvious why. He cuisine does not disappoint! I highly recommend it, whether or not you eat meat, you can find something tasty to enjoy.
