Meet Zahra

Hi- my name is Zahra! Mom to Leo (1). I still remember last year, on September 23rd (which was our anniversary date) went for my 36 weeks doctor’s appointment with my husband, Farid in the morning and a few hours later I was holding Leo!! I ended up having an emergency c-section one month earlier than my due date. So my motherhood journey started with a big shock. However, it was amazing how quickly I could start enjoying this journey. I have a Ph.D. in chemistry. I am a full-time scientist leader for a biotech company in Ann Arbor and also a lifestyle blogger. I started my Instagram page a few years ago mostly focusing on fashion and everyday looks to inspire professional women. Over the years and being a new mom, the focus of my brand has now been changed towards mom life, lifestyle, and fashion.

Best Park/Playground: Northville Recreation Area + Maybury State Park (Northville)

They are close to where we live and they have nice playgrounds and trails to walk for the family.

Halloween in downtown Northville overall is really fun also. Families can also check out Parmenter’s Northville Cider Mill for the great donut and cider at the same time.

Everyone tells you, you need a travel system stroller but no one will tell you, you actually need 2 strollers!

Parmenters Northville Cider Mill and Franklin Cider Mill in Bloomfield Hills are great for a weekend family visit.

“Pat Yourself on the Back” Accomplishment: Balancing Work + Motherhood

Working away from the house full-time and being a new mom while managing the house is the greatest accomplishment for me honestly!
