February Baby Product Haul

Kayli, Angel and I share our must have products of the month on the latest episode of Mommy and Me. Mine were both books; Puff the Magic Dragon AND Go The F to Sleep. Both excellent- especially the second. It was clearly made for adults like me who’s children don’t have any desire to sleep. I am happy to report that Idris is enamored by books which melts my heart because I am an avid reader myself. Ok, that’a lie, I used to be- now if I get a spare second- oh wait- that was funny. #momjoke Get it- we don’t have any spare seconds! I’ll stop now and just let you watch the video below.

The SASS

My new show finally has a name- The SASS! Aka The Susan And Sharzad Show. Do you like it!?!? Hope so! I don’t know how many of you have ever tried naming a SHOW but let me tell you, it’s hard. We spent weeks coming up with different suggestions and nothing was sticking. We also LOVED hearing your suggestions- it is so cool to see how excited everyone is for this. After a while we decided we didn’t want the word beauty in it because we felt like that was limiting and who knows where this fun adventure will take us… perhaps we’ll be doing weird workouts in Bali. A girl can dream. Anyway, below is the video where we make our big announcement and also do some awkward accents! Enjoy!



Mini Road Trip: Santa Barbara

One of my first weekend trips with Michael was to Santa Barbara. At the time we were doing long distance (LA-Chicago) and when he would come visit I would plan the most magical weekend getaways with the hopes of convincing him to move here. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. It wasn’t difficult! As I’m sure many of you know it’s easy to fall in love with the beautiful state of California.  When you drive along highway 101 (or The 101) you’ll notice that there are picture perfect beach towns every few miles. We decided it was time for another fabulous getaway up the coast, so we packed up and headed out. Halfway up we stopped at the Jolly Oyster. A MUST if you’re into oysters, the beach and fun. (Note-only open Friday, Saturday, Sunday) Arguably the most perfect of all the beach towns is Santa Barbara. It takes about an hour and half (depending on traffic of course!) to get there from LA and it feels like paradise once you arrive. We decided to stay at the Four Seasons and were in a state of pure bliss the entire time. The amenities for Idris blew my mind. He was greeted with a stuffed animal, his own robe, hot wipe dispenser, diaper genie, crib AND a set of baby friendly toiletries. Talk about your LUX FAMILY VACAY. I Like! In true Sharzad fashion, I headed for the spa. You guys, it was UNREAL. I know I may say that about a lot of spas, but this one was spectacular. I had an 80 minute stone massage with the ocean breeze wafting though the door and the sound of waves crashing in the background. #WorkHard #PamperHard is my motto!  Enjoy the photos and video below ; )Sharzad Kiadeh IMG_5554 IMG_5582

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. Click the video below to watch!

Gotta Go!



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!
